Just returned from Europe. Kept me perfectly warm in really cold Munich, and while in mountains of snowy Bavaria. Love having a hood to throw up as needed, though it did come forward over forehead and eyes unless I wore a hat underneath to hold it up. Slate color really nice, goes well with blonde hair and fair skin tone. Size medium just right with nothing else bulky underneath, a small would be tight in shoulders and bust, wt. 130 and 5'7". Do wish there was an interior cuff on sleeves, the lining at wrist seam with outer fabric tends to slide outside a bit. Many women in Europe with this style down anorak fur trimmed hooded coat. The snap tabs on waist make for a slimming profile. For the $$ I would buy again. Ordered one for my daughter in college in DC. Hers is a small in black, fits her and she is 5'8, slim. Fashion fussy 19 yr old, and likes it alot, especially for windy days on the hilltop at GU.
