I have worn this jacket the entire winter in New York City. Even when it was 0 degrees, I was okay in it and you don't need to even layer when it's temps in 30s. The look is very slim. The coat is lightweight and packable for travel. I am 135lbs, 5'4" and I ordered an XS. I can wear a sweater or hoodie and layers under this comfortably.

Reviews are almost 90% subjective, so only in "Style" did I give less than five stars. Overall very pleased. As an outdoor guy, I need something that will fit over my clothes (and in the winter we're talking thermals and heavy wool pants) and so I orderd one size up. Comfort is also great. The engineering is good so there is plenty of give and flexibility at the required areas such as crotch and knees. Waist line is easily large enough, though I'm surprised there was no velcro "take-up" straps to reduce bagginess. I've seen that before in the North Face line, and this is my first Mountain Hardwear purchase. (Usually work issues us rain gear but it's so cruddy and hot and ...downright useless...that I buy my own. Getting cold and wet in the morning rain, and staying that way all day is NOT an enjoyable option! If you're only going to wear heavy thermals underneath, then your usual size will suffice. I wear a lot of clothing and peel it off as the day warms, so I go up one size. I got these on sale, and even though a bit pricey, NOT BEING OFF several days off being sick with a virus or bacterial pneumonia (which I've had due to working in bad weather conditions) more than compensates.

This is the best down jacket ever! I bought one a couple of years ago when it was Mountain Hardware/Cole Haan dual brand and love it. When I saw that the style was renewed again with different colors, I ordered two more! I normally wear size S top and M bottom and this fits wonderfully with plenty of room for thick sweaters. I get tons of compliments. The only drawback is that the hood does not have drawstrings.

Although I usually wear a medium in coats I ordered a large. This coat is so much too small it almost has to be mis-sized. There is a gap up the front of at least 4 inches and the shoulders are tiny! It’s also shorter than I expected. Very disappointed so back it goes. Thanks Zappos for easy returns.

I'm wondering who actually fits in these pants. I'm normally a 2 (4 tops), and this pair in a size 4 was way too small. I couldn't even get them up past my thighs. I feel like I would need a size 8. No thanks.

I like the idea of these pants. They are lightweight and stretch with your movement. The problem I had is the bottoms are not tight enough to my boot. I was planning to use these as an outer waterproof layer for winter sports, but the bottom is too wide. In addition, the waist was a tad too big but the rest of the pant fit well. I wish it had a velcro or internal drawstring adjustment to cinch the waist.

I liked the previous version better as the soft shell fabric was thicker and I think will be more durable. That being said these are super comfortable and will be better for the warmer days when pants are still needed.

I bought the soft green and still are pleased with the cheerful color. The jacket is true to size if worn with a thin shirt, but bought a size larger so I may wear a sweatshirt under it if need be. It has been proven waterproof in the rain and snow. It is somewhat pricey for what appears to be a plain rain jacket, but it is not easy to find a well- made rain jacket with zipped pockets and a hood (that is really waterproof) in a color you like.

I'm thin, with broad shoulders and small bust. I ordered the small but it was too tight under the armpits but fit well in the torso. I'm pretty sure a medium would give me that boxy look I hate, so I'm just returning it. Seems like an awesome coat if it fit you right though.

I agree with the most recent review. This jacket is super thin and runs quite small. For the large price tag I was hoping for something far more substantial. It looks shiny in the pictures, but definitely not in person. In the process of returning right now.

Excellent level of quality, as I would expect from Mountain Hardware. This makes a great casual shirt, or in my case, a professional looking shirt to wear under a jacket. The length is my only concern, it falls well below the caboose; but if that is what your looking for, then you need this super soft shirt!

I'm shocked at the comments about the coat being so warm. It's SO thin! Also, the fur on the hood looks very cheap. It would be an ok coat for half...maybe more than half the price, but not worth the high price tag.

I just can't imagine how this coat would be warm in Michigan winters. It's VERY thin. Cute, but VERY thin! I'm sure even with being so thin, the down will keep you warm in 40...maybe mid 30 degree weather, but make sure it's dry, because it doesn't look to be water resistant or repellant. Like I said, cute coat, but hardly worth the high price tag. I'm 5'6.5, 158 lbs, and large was a nice fit.
