This might take all day but I'll try to restrain myself. This coat is wonderful for me! I'm extremely picky about what I wear, I went through 2 other 'rain/wind/coats' before keeping the Merrell. I have about 30 other 'outerwear' items but none with all the qualities this coat has -- I've spent months layering sweaters & sweater-coats & vests & scarves & hats etc. in order to keep out the cold wind & occasional blasting rain as I leave home here in Central Coast California by the Sea. Oh yes! Up on my Hill it often feels like Scotland but to bundle up properly I turn into the Michelin Woman and can't buckle my seat belt! I had my first chance to wear this coat in rainy cold wind the other day and I was so happy to have this on me. It looks great, the Charcoal is lovely (I had a hard time choosing it over Black) and it's a blue-ish grey, very flattering shade. I like having the hood but I gave that part of the Coat only 4 stars because the collar snap & fit aren't the best -- tight I'd say. The Hood loops are hard to grab in a pinch and the whole arrangement felt clumsy as I went from outdoors to indoors to car, etc. Merrell could improve this part a bit. But -- as I said, this coat is 100% perfect for my needs and I'm amazed at the near-perfect fit (though I never wear a Large so Buyer Beware: the coat runs Small).

Beautiful! I like to wear my clothes loose and not formfitting to allow for bulky sweaters during winter. I normally wear a 12 or 14 depending on the manufacturer. I ordered a large AND an extra large. The large fit but was a little to form fitting for comfortable wearing of the cable knit t-neck sweaters I wear. The xl will allow this without looking stuffed. Also, the workmanship on this and the style look very very polished. I would say it looked like an much more expensive coat, but I've seen 700 dollar coats look like a HomeEC 101 project. This is wonderful! Thank you Zappos for the free shipping and returns which enable us to order without stress!

I think this coat fits true to size, and I'm so glad I didn't go up a size like some of the reviews said. I'm 5'3" and 145 lbs, and the medium fits perfectly. I have plenty of room to layer. It is a beautiful and slimming jacket. The lining is very soft, and the exterior seems really tough. I can't wait to see if it stands up to the rainy winter we will have.

I ordered a Medium due to the fact I might be wearing bulky sweaters underneath. Glad I did, the Medium fits with just a t-shirt too and is not too much extra to look like I'm swimming in it. Really like the button detail on the sleeves -- and the hood is the perfect size. I have some coats where the hood is so big it falls down into my eyes. Not this one, seems perfectly fit/cut for a smaller woman's proportions. Also lays flat when down to allow for a more seamless profile. I'm 5'5", 150lb (muscular build) and usually wear size 8. I'm also usually a petite, so the sleeves are a tad long on me, but would seem easy enough to have a tailor take in.

I am always somewhat hesitant to order higher priced items online, but I was so pleased with this jacket! I have been trying to find something that is flattering and will hold up in more extreme weather conditions...and this jacket is perfect! I am so pleased with it!

I am in love with this jacket. The length, fit, color, style & comfort are perfect. The inside lining is soft and plush. Love the buttons on the sleeves. I have received tons of compliments. Wise purchase. Tempted to buy in other colors I love it so much.

I am 5.9, 150, tall, regular 8-10 and I bought this Jacket in size 16-xl and is perfect and I can put really thick sweater or sweatshirt under and still look slim! Ziplock could work better! Very nice, simple line, good pockets, windproof and rainproof. For temp not below 40.

This coat is awesome. It is windproof! It's nice and long so it covers your bum and comes a bit longer than mid thigh on me (5'4). The jacket zips right up under your chin protecting your neck and the hood fully covers your head but doesn't leave gaps plus its adjustable with elastic cords. The torso of the coat is lined with a soft faux fur/fleece but the sleeves are lined with a slick insulator I'm assuming for ease of putting your arms into them without getting snagged. It runs small. I normally wear a small in coats (although sometimes run into problems because my shoulders are a little large) but I sized up based on other reviews and I'm glad I did! It's super toasty but not enough for arctic temperatures...anything below 30 and you need to be properly dressed under it (I wear short sleeves more than I should). So glad I bought this coat although I was hesitant about the price I think it was worth it.

Fantastic coat for weather 30 degrees or warmer. Sleek, feminine, cute. Size XL fit is 12-14. Sleeve cuffs are very open, gloves needed. In ND, this coat would be nice for fall days but not for our cold winter weather. I usually wear a large (14-16) to allow wearing a sweater or vest underneath coat. XL does not allow layering at all. Suggest Merrill create this coat in true sizes as it is a fabulous coat with many great features. Would love to wear it if less snug.

I originally ordered this coat in a Large. It was a bit tight when bringing arms across body. I then ordered it in an XL and it is just great. The weather here has been anywhere from high 20's to mid 40's and I am able to wear a sweater underneath and be quite comfortable running errands, etc., zipped up or just snapped. The color is delightfully interesting. Not gray, not lavender. I'm very pleased.

The coat is warm but not overly bulky. It's nice and professional for work. And roomy. I can wear a thick sweater or blazer and I still have room to move.

A great jacket for the current weather in Chicago (wet and between 40-60 degrees). It's not going to be warm enough for winter, and it has a fairly slim cut so unless you size up there is not much room for layers. Happy to have gotten it on sale.

Purchased this jacket for a recent trip to Ireland. Perfect for the varied weather we encountered! The cut of this jacket is functional and stylish (a tough combo). After a day in the spitting rain it proved that it was waterproof and did a good job against the wind. The lining provides an extra layer of warmth without being too bulky or too warm. Hood and pockets are both useful. The buttons on the cuffs and the banding on back waist contribute to style of this jacket.

This is a really nice looking rain coat. It is lined and I have been wearing it all fall. It has been in the upper 40's these past few days, and with a sweater under it, it's fine. Much colder and I'll switch to a warmer coat. Others wrote that it runs small, so I ordered 2 sizes, but I found that the small fits fine over a sweater. I am 5'1" and 125 lbs. I took this coat on a fall trip to Italy. I only needed it early and late in the day. It looks so much nicer than a mac or trench.

I love this jacket! I have received numerous complements on it every time I wear it. I ordered a size up like the reviews said to do but it was just too big. My normal size worked perfectly (keeping in mind it is a slim style).

Very nice coat - but liner and hood are not removable so this is definitely a cold weather coat! I think it runs true to size if not a little big.

Really love this coat, but it does run a bit small. I usually wear a small, but a medium would probably fit better. It's a little snug in the sleeves.

After reading several reviews I decided to order a size larger. Too big! I'm a medium so large is what I ordered and it gave me a bigger shape. The jacket is made very well and I'm sure if you get the right size for you it's a winner. Smooth material, nice collar and folds nice and flat for the traveler.

Love this jacket! Size up! I normally wear a 12-14 (L) but, after reading other reviews, I went up to XL. For me this still leaves no room to wear a sweater or anything bulky underneath. I still love it and get many compliments on the style. Very slimming and figure flattering. Not terribly warm. You will want something warmer if temp. is below the 40's. Great for Spring, Fall and mild Winter days.

I love this coat! It's perfect for 35-50 degree weather especially in the rain or snow. The cut is flattering, and sophisticated enough to cross over to work wear in the rain/snow. I am a 14/16 with large bust, the XL fits perfectly with or without layers. Best coat investment I've made in years. My only complaint is that the zipper slows me down if it doesn't catch just right. If that's a pet peeve of yours, it may be a deal breaker.

Sleek and feminine coat with great details and features. Sizing is not true. Ordered size XL (18) due to reviews. Coat fits like a 12-14. I would normally wear a 14-16. Wearable but would not be comfortable nor able to serve against cold weather due to tightness. Like it but must return.

Fuzzy fleece inside. The pocket and sleeve lining are a strange feeling material (that's why I returned) otherwise good very sporty softshell.

I love this coat! It is so flattering. The only problem is that the Small is just a little snug, and the Medium is huge. I need one right in the middle. I should probably return it, I'll never be able to wear anything thick under it. I'm 5'5, 130 lbs, 34C bust size. Such a shame.
