For the price, this coat is a STEAL (and I was utterly shocked by the shipping speed. I don't get things from within my own state that quickly!).
I was looking to replace a 4-in-1 jacket from a different company, which fit in the shoulders and bust, but was much too large for me everywhere else. I have a V-shaped torso - much larger across the shoulders and bust, with very small hips (I wear a L-XL top, and an XS-S bottom), so I knew I was looking for something with either some kind of tie or cinch at the waist. My previous coat didn't have this feature and I lost a lot of warmth due to a draft coming up from underneath.
This coat feels very warm - putting it on for 5 minutes, I definitely started to overheat in the house, so I think it's going to be very good for me when winter comes around.
I do wish the waist cinched a bit more - there are only two snaps, so there is not much of a difference between one cinch setting and the next. That's the primary reason I removed a star. It will still avoid most of the draftiness of normal coats for me, but another snap or two, or a pull-able strap (like a fabric belt or guitar strap) would have made this coat much better for me.
I have a large bust and shoulders, and long arms for my height (I'm 5'4), so I do normally go for an XL in coats to get extra room in the bust and length in the arms, but I decided to go by the size chart in this case, and that worked out just fine for me. The sleeves are long enough, and my shoulders don't feel unnecessarily constricted. It's a tiny bit snug in the bust (I'm a 30GG - my bust measures about 40-40.5 inches.). Overall, this fits alright in the bust. It zips up fine, but when I move my arms, the snaps do pull slightly, so if you have a 41 inch bust, you might be happier in an XL than a L.
I do hope Free Country continues to make this coat, or other heavyweight coats like it, with the ability to cinch in at the waist, because it is a feature someone with my body type really can't go without (coats that lack waist cinching are too drafty), and while it's not perfect, I am still extremely happy with it.
