What a beauty of a winter coat! This is a medium to heavy weight piece that is sure to keep you warm.
The length is fantastic. It'll keep most of your rear warm without feeling like you're being weighed down. It's not super bulky so you won't feel stuffy, and it's constructed in a way that will be flattering to your waistline instead of looking like the Michelin Man.
The fabric is a matte polyester so it's not a loud, shiny number. It doesn't appear to have a waterproof finish but will stand up to a little rain. The inner lining is really cozy, soft fleece which is only in the body, pockets, and hood, but not the sleeves (which is good as it facilitates easy wearing of long sleeved layers). It's padded evenly with mid-weight stuffing and quilted horizontally with additional shapely princess seams.
There are thumb holes to keep your hands warm too. That was an unexpected bonus! And the sleeves don't feel so short that the thumb holes pull at your palms uncomfortably, at least not for me with average sized arms for a 5'2" person.
There is a double front closure with both a good quality zipper and matte black snap buttons that go all the way up to the hood.
Two pockets at each side front, with a streamlined finish, and an interior left breast pocket with vertical velcro closure big enough to fit your phone is sure to be enough to keep everything you need close at hand.
I can comfortably close the XS on my body but it doesn't leave much room for a sweater underneath. Small will probably be a more practical size for me at 36/31/41.
Get this if you're not yet geared up for winter! This is a flattering, versatile style that you'll get a lot of wear out of, as well as the benefit of good upper body and head warmth and protection from the weather.
