Thank you for your feedback.
I like the jacket and find that it's well made, has a nice fit and looks both elegant and casual.
I am 5'2 200 lbs and the XL fit great!
Tested it out two days ago and it kept me dry without being hot--I live in Texas.

    Size: SmallColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I ordered this jacket in a small but it is still too large, so I returned it and will re-order it in an extra small. I am going to the U.K. and wanted something along the lines of a wind breaker/rain jacket and this fits the bill. I wanted something with some style and fit and yet practical and functional and this is it. The belt provides a touch of dressiness. It is light weight enough to be compacted into my backpack. I was also looking for a longer jacket. The longer length will better help keep me dry and comfortable if the weather turns rainy and cold and it is roomy enough to wear a few layers underneath for added warmth. And I like the roll-up tuck-away type hood - when you get wet weather such as they have in the U.K. you really need a hood. I also like the zippered deep pockets although I wish I could find a jacket with "smart zippers" which fasten to clips to make them harder for pickpockets to steal things. And I wish it had secure pockets on the inside. With all the petty theft that goes on, I consider such security measures invaluable. I wish more manufacturers were designing with this in mind.

    Size: MediumColor: Poppy Verified Purchase
    I love that jacket. After reading the different reviews and asking some people how it fits (and no one never anwered, *sight* ) I decided to go with a Medium. I'm not very big (not quite 5' 2", with 112lbs) and it fits a little too "loose" for me: The sleeves are a little too long, and the hood a little bit too big. I should have ordered a Small, but did not want to have to deal with returning and re-ordering it in case it would not work.
    I am pretty sure that this winter with a sweater under it, this rain jacket will fit perfectly. I love the color, it is not really red, not orange; a kind of bright rust hue !

    Size: LargeColor: Navy Verified Purchase
    Fit - I wear a size six in dresses and ordered a large to accommodate winter clothes that may be worn underneath. However, I would probably be fine with a medium because even with a fleece jacket underneath there is plenty of room.
    Fabric - it's a nice rain jacket but I sure wish there was lining or the option of a zip out liner. The interior actually feels a little sticky if you're not wearing sleeves. It also provides little warmth.
    Durability - it keeps me dry in the rain and that's what I bought it for (I live in Albania which has quite a rainy season) - so far so good!

    Overall: Like. I like the functionality and style, but only for the rain protection, not for warmth.

    I took this jacket with me to Scotland and the Lake District and it was terrific! It was comfortable and kept me dry even in blowing rain which we had almost every day. The only complaint is that the zipper tends to get caught on the liner, making it difficult to close or open it at times. This is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I eventually learned how to pull the liner out of the zipper and still think it was worth the price. It's very lightweight and and can be rolled up and stored in a backpack when you don't need it.

    It's a nice looking coat and I've had compliments on it BUT do not wear this out in the pouring rain, it soaked through when an unexpected downpour hit us this summer. Also, it's a super light jacket, nothing more than a windbreaker, which I was disappointed about. I guess I wasnt paying enough attention because it looks like a structured, fall jacket. it's fine but i would've wanted to pay less for a coat like this.

    Size: XXX-LargeColor: Red Verified Purchase
    I am a tall woman with long arms and often have trouble finding jackets that are the right length. This jacket fits perfectly and gives me a little room under it for an extra layer. I also love the attached hood that I can hide away for a little less casual look. It works well for going to meetings and for going for a walk.

    I like this coat (I've had it for four days), but the zipper has already given me some trouble and my husband thinks it looks small on me (it isn't). Great color and fit, lightweight with room for a fleece underneath.

    Not exactly what I expected for the cost of the jacket $$$$...but needed a light weight rain-type coat ( and wanted longer than waist length) for Ireland vacation. Need a foldable type and I did not want a poncho. Love the red/poppy color! Very thin, like a poncho material and flimsy plastic zipper...still not sure if I will keep it!!
