I am 5'5" and 145#. The medium size fits me perfectly. It has been below zero degrees where I live and this coat was able to keep me warm enough as I ran errands (in and out of the car). The sleeves are big enough that I can still slip the coat on with a bulky sweatshirt on. When zipped, the bottom of the coat isn't too tight to get in and out of the car. Plus the coat itself isn't so heavy that it feels like it's weighting you down and still is flattering. All in all, I am very happy with the coat!
I found it to be very tight in the shoulders- If you put it on and do not move, it looks great, but, to actually move in it, there was no room- I had one layer underneath it, so thought that was pretty fair- I also did not like that the sleeves did not cover my wrists. I am 5'4", 150 # and I ordered a Large, for a chest size of 36, going by the sizing chart. It is a nice coat for the money, and I just wanted it to wear back and forth to work on cold days here in Michigan. If the sizing was right, I would give it 4 out of 5, and, enjoy it.
Because I live in a cold climate, I really needed a very warm down-filled jacket. This one is not as warm as others that I've worn. Also, I wish that it had a knitted cuff at the wrist inside the sleeve to keep out the cold breeze. Otherwise, it looks nice and should wear well if cared for.
It arrived early and right our of the package, I knew this was my coat. I've been in rain (one of the reasons I purchased this coat) and snow and it keeps you cozy. A little dressy which I love! Wouldn't hesitate to order from O. Quick, good quality, as described and my favorite coat.
I love this coat and it keeps me so warm!! Was looking for a coat that protected me from the wind and I found it in this coat. I would definitely recommend it. It's very soft and not stiff like some I have seen. Had been looking in stores but never could find the right one so finally decided to try buying one on-line. I love the length (3/4) also. And I might add delivery was super fast. All in all, I am very pleased with product and service.
Even though this coat is lightweight, it keeps me warm in 12 degree windy weather. The price is can't be beaten for value. Keep bring us quality products like this. I recommended this coat to 4 people. Thanks for a great coat that is comfortable with a heavy sweater under it.
The quality just wasn't what I expected for this coat. I thought it was Macintosh of Scotland, but instead it is Mac of New England. The coat fit well and appears to be warm, but I didn't like the cuffs which were just elastic. I want a knit or fleece cuff in a coat. This coat seems perfectly average, I just want something better. It's going back.
I ordered the Mackintosh Women's Hooded Water Resistant Down-filled Coat in black. This coat is very lightweight, but don't let that fool you. It keeps the warmth in and the cold out. I stood outside in blustery 20 degree weather wearing this coat and didn't feel the cold wind at all. I have not had the opportunity to see how water resistant it is, since it hasn't rained here. But it certainly keeps the wind from cutting right through you like an icy knife! I was worried that the hood on this coat would bother me since I don't normally wear them. However, I found myself grateful to have it when the wind kicked up and threatened to freeze my ears off my head. The stitching is very well done on this coat and it's comfortable and soft. The sleeves have an elastic band at the wrists, which helps to keep the cold out. Overall, It's excellent quality for the price in my opinion.
The color is almost like a sandy grey - slightly beige with grey and silver tones. Nice medium length, very warm, and long arms. I bought it as a gift for my 67 year old mom and it is something I as a 44 year old would wear as well. It's got a nice cut that goes in a bit at the waist. Can't beat it for the price!
