The coat is very warm, unless there is a strong wind. The first time I was cold in this coat was while walking the dogs in the park early in March; stiff, moist wind at 35-40 mph, gusting higher. I ordered brown; it is beautiful. Everyone compliments the coat. The "fur" is very soft. The "fur" lining around the wrists sometimes feels a bit clumsy; I'll have to get used to that. The coat is lovely, I enjoy it! Now that I'm aware of the wind, I'll put my spring windbreaker underneath to see if that helps. The coat is also roomy enough for a bulky sweater. The zipper has small teeth. The coat widens out at the hips enough so when I sit in the car the zipper is not being pulled.
Im 5'4" 180lbs and very busty (J cup). This fit all over, arms, hips, in the XL. It was a little tight in the bust but I've come to expect that at this size cup. Just that I was able to zip it was a victory.
This is a very nice jacket. I feel like a character from the Matrix! The removable hood is a big plus. It is rather big--the top goes past my eyes when I have it on--but in those times I either just fold the flap up a little or let it droop over. It is water-resistant at the least. May even be waterproof but I haven't used it in a terrible downpour yet. I normally order small or medium but got medium here because of reviews saying the jacket sizes small. Turns out I probably could've gotten away with a small, but it is nice to have extra room for a sweater in case I want to layer. Feels good in the wind as well--not sure if I can officially call it a windbreaker, but I'm at least comfortable, and I normally get cold easily. It's not super light but also not super thick. Looks good unzipped as well. I'm very satisfied with this purchase!
I am really loving all the Nuage jackets and I have ordered several styles already. This jacket couldn't fit my body more perfectly if I had it made to order (I am curvy with a small waist). This jacket can easily be dressed down or up, open or closed using the belt. I don't know how to describe the fabric - it is sort of a thick windbreaker type fabric.
