I was looking for a warm down jacket without fur trim and this jacket is a good price. I am 5'9", 140 lbs and the medium fit me well. The sleeves were long enough - almost to the middle of my hand, which I liked. However, it didn't feel as warm to me as it should have, I think because of the 60% to 40% down to feather ratio. The pockets are awkward and small and not good for warming your hands as they are on the outside of the jacket. Also, it is very puffy in general, which felt overwhelming to me. It is wide at the bottom, so I didn't feel like it could keep my legs warm. I think that the designer of this jacket spent more time on the bells and whistles (buttons, belt, etc.) and less time on the practical aspect of designing a good, warm nice looking jacket. I returned it and kept a different jacket that I ordered - the Spiewak, Warren Jacket, which is much slimmer, warmer and lighter. Also, note that Overstock charges you to return items that are not defective. They charge by weight and this jacket is $7.70 to return. It is too bad that they have this policy as it deters people from buying items from them.
