I kept this coat because its The warmest thing i have ever experienced so on a 20 degree day you are not bothered and Dont even need a scarf! Im 5’6” and 148lbs curvy. Sizing in a large in one of the other Coats was snug sO i got this one in xL but that makes this coat A bit oversize and a lot of coat to carry aRound. that said its worth the warmth. the double pockets are nice because You can zip away valuables and still have a lined pocket to warm your hands.also the double layer of zippers giVes flexibility. I use this Coat for the coldest days in nEW york city and have other coats for 30F+ days .
Two things you should know--it is heavy, so you'll really want it for the coldest days. And it runs a little small. I'm normally a Size small (american dress size 2-4), and I chose the medium, which is a good fit. I especially like the extra warmth afforded by the faux vest. Most of all, I love being able to have a truly warm coat without having to buy down.
I chose a large size (after reading some reviews) as I wanted to ensure I could wear larger sweaters underneath and it is perfect. I am normally about a medium size.
With only the inner zip closed it is still quite loose, but once you close the full zip it becomes much tighter which is great.
Living in NYC, I love that I can just chuck this parker on and head outside to walk my dog, It is so warm and I just love that I never now have to worry about getting cold when I'm wearing this jacket. Windproof and waterproof is awesome as well. Highly recommend.
I have been waiting a long time for a down free warm coat so i'm dissappointed. My daughter is 5'2" 105 lb and a small was too tight on her. there was no room for winter clothing underneath. Sent it back.
I absolutely love this coat! So nice and feminine, and super warm. Finally I have a nice coat to keep me warm through the cold new york city winter. It's definitely a heavyweight coat, so know that before buying it. :) feels heavy and it's really long, but so lovely.
