It took me buying four coats before I finally got one that fit me, and which meets my needs. I'm one of those people who straddle a small and a medium, so without trying something on, it's hit and miss buying online. But this problem aside, this coat is really a good product. It's water repellent, which is important for a down coat because down loses its heat-trapping properties when it's wet. Then there are those LOVELY LOVELY plush insides of the pocket which makes glove-wearing unnecessary when you have your hands tucked inside those wonderful plush-lined pockets. The hood is also plush-lined, as is the top half (from the neck to almost the waist), that is a lovely feature. The hood also has a zip in the middle (not very cool-looking, but when you aren't wearing it, you can zip it down halfway or more and it lies flat on your shoulders, which IS cool-looking. What else? Great length, with zips up the side to make slits for easier walking if you want it that way. All round great product.
