Overall, I'm pleased with this coat's functionality--definitely repels rain to keep you dry (and warm-er)! However, I'm not thrilled with the style or quality. The former is partly my fault. I'm 5 foot 3 inches and about 125 pounds. I usually wear a small, but with coats, I always err on the larger side, since they are layered over other clothing. I was especially concerned about Miss Sixty because the last time I bought something from them (albeit a long time ago) I remember it ran on the small side. But I also didn't want the coat to look bulky, so I looked up a Miss Sixty sizing chart and went with a medium, based on my measurements. Definitely too big--most noticeable in the sleeves. The hood was great at keeping the rain off my head and face, but cut off my peripheral vision quite a bit, which was annoying (feel like that would have happened anyway, though--even if it were the right size for me). Again, the quality can't be that bad, since it helped me survive a wet week out and about in northern Europe, but I was dismayed when a first button fell off after only a few days of wearing it, and then a second (decorative--so never used) button fell off just this week. Not a big deal--I can sew back on--just a pain, and makes you worry what stitch or zipper will go next!
