I like this coat but I don't love it. I am a bit on the short side - just a sliver under 5'-4" - and this coat is pretty long. The hood is nice and well-designed to stay in place, and as others have noted, the warm, soft, fuzzy lining in the pockets is wonderful. But based upon others' comments, I ordered a medium and it fits well in most places, but it really is long. My husband says I look like I am wearing a sleeping bag (advantage to wearing a sleeping bag: you are always equipped to take a nap). It is just a bit tight around my hips, but the side zips help with that. I might end up giving this coat to my sister, who is 4 inches taller than me. The quality is excellent.
