As one reviewer commented, this coat is a very slender fit. I am 5'5, 100 lbs, and always wear a size 0 or XS. I bought this coat in XS and was initially worried I could not wear heavy sweaters under this coat. In fact, I can wear a heavy sweater under the coat and still have full rotation of my arms (very necessary to grab overhead handrails on NY subways) plus bend. When I first zip up, I do feel like a stuffed sausage, but the coat seems to have give and so far I don't see stress on the seams. I think this coat is designed to be so fitted since there are no drawstrings to make the coat more snug. I tried on the Small size, but it was much too large and I know the extra space would cause a draft. This coat is very warm, the hood stays on my head, the tall neck keeps my neck protected, and very few feathers leach out. It is a very elegantly and efficiently designed coat. As someone else said, it would be nice if there was a fleece lining. And I wish the sleeves had cuffs to prevent a draft. The zippers are a little flimsy and do get caught on the fabric more often than I'd like. I have only had this coat for one week, but it is performing better (in terms of warmth and feather discharge) than many others I have had. Plus, I am so glad this coat is cruelty free-- no live plucking and no beautiful, defenseless creature draped across the hood of my coat.

Hood /collar is a nice idea, but it sits funny when wearing it. The top part of the jacket is tighter than other Patagonia down jackets, and fits oddly. Seems like it would be very warm though. I also tried the current iteration of the Down With It Parka (had one for 4 years and love its fitted look and warmth) -- it is no longer very fitted or last all flattering...kind of disappointed with Patagonia this year.

I purchased this coat in December 2013 and I have some thoughts after owning it through one of the coldest MN winters on record! Pros: great shape, great details, nice construction. I love that the hood can be zipped in to make a tall collar or function as a regular hood. The sleeves are long and the angle cut keeps the cold out. Cons: the fabric has a satin texture that catches on dry skin on your fingers and face. The lining is the same as the outside of the coat, which is chilly to the touch. Wish it were fleece. Also the lining catches in the zipper very easily. The collar doesn't sit close to your neck when zipped up so you definitely need a scarf. The coat is a great option for someone who is pear-shaped, but people with straight hips might find that it doesn't fit tight enough around the hips and thighs. I'm 5'8" and 150 pounds with broad shoulders and straight hips, and I should have purchased a medium for a more snug fit. It would have kept me warmer I think. My runner-up coat was the Marmot Montreaux, and while this coat has a more flattering shape, I regret that I turned down the warmth and comfort of the Marmot for the style and cut of this coat. Next time, function over form.

I'd also recommend: Marmot

This coat is sharp looking but the zippers snag very easily and the down started coming out right away.

I love this coat. It keeps me very warm in 20 degree weather and even a few days it was in the teens I was very warm. I feel very protected from the cold in this coat. I am 5'3", 120 lbs and I was worried the medium would be too large yet I was afraid the small wouldn't allow for a heavy sweater underneath. I got a small and am very glad I did. It fits perfectly. I have worn a heavy sweathshirt underneath it and have had no problems. It does zip up more snug of course when I wear a sweatshirt and the first time I zipped up with a sweatshirt underneath I was afaid I would look like a stuffed sausage... I didn't! The coat is very flattering and while I feel incredibly snug it does seem to give as another reviewer mentioned. As other reviewers stated, the coat is not lined with fleece which I appreciate. I like that I can easily slip this coat on and off regardless of what I am wearing. On occasion I have only worn a t-shirt underneath (if I know I'm not going to be taking the coat off as I do get cold very easily) and the nylon lining against my skin was a comfort to me. I thought it would feel cold against my skin but it did not. It felt silky and smooth and somehow very warm. I have not had a problem with cold air up my arms... I love the angled cut at the end of the sleeves. The hood is very substantial and stays up when the coat is completely zipped up. I figured I would need a scarf though bc there is a gap on my neck when it's zipped up but I've found I don't. When I've run out the door without one I have been pleasantly suprised that I don't feel air on my neck. It comes up just over my mouth and keeps me feeling very warm and secure. Just remember to unzip the hood from its home when the coat arrives. I was a little confused at first, wondering where this hood is, because the zipper is nicely concealed when you're not aware that it is there. I love the length as well. It comes just below the back of my knees in the back (the back is slightly longer than the front) and to my knees in the front. This coat is by far my favorite coat I've ever owned. It is incredibly warm and comfortable yet is very flattering as well. I've had it for about a month and have worn it every day since I've had it. I have only seen one feather sticking out from it and I have had minimal problems with the zipper. But I have never owned a coat that didn't sometimes get caught in the fabric so I actually expected that. It really isn't an issue to me though bc I feel so protected and warm while it's on. I also appreciate the double zipper. When I'm bending over to put my boots on while wearing the coat, I can zip up the bottom zipper a bit so it allows for more room to move while pulling them on. I have never had a problem with the bottom zipper catching while doing this. I am very happy with this coat!
