Resort and street chic, this coat still delivers winter performance with down fill, a detachable, faux fur trim hood, and double zip, front closure with signature butter pile bib, butter pile back lining, collar, and hand gaiter. Interior cell phone, music, and basket pockets add utility.

This coat is practically everything I was looking for! It is light in weight but does an exceptional job at keeping you warm (heavyweight). I love the look also. I got the grey color, as I am always around children. I on average wear a medium (size 6) and bought a size medium coat, fit is good with some wiggle room. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.
This is a good looking, warm jacket, especially the faux fur on the hood. It almost looks real.
The only small issue that I have had is that the snaps pull down the front, even when the zipper is zipped. They don't pop open but look like they might.
Overall, though, this is a real bargain and a handsome jacket.
I ordered the 1X first and it was too big, so I sent it back and paid a furtune to send it back. I then got the XL and that was too small. Really dissapointed and now I have to send this one back. How can the sizing be so different???
At $100, this coat is a solid buy. The fit, lightweight style, warm and coziness of it are very nice. I think it runs small; as an example, I wear a 14, but the sizing chart convinced me to go with the XL. I highly recommend this jacket for everyday cold weather. We can get into the -20's with wind chills, and this doesn't let any of it in!
I ordered first a 1X that was two sizes to big, then ordered this one an XL and that was too small. Very disappointed, Also it cost me 21.00 for each coat to send back different times, because of the hub of where there factory is. It was the only guaranteed way to track it so the 88.00 for the coat was no deal. Most places help with the shipping cost!
I like this coat a lot - it's very warm and I enjoy having the inside pockets and wrist warmers. I have to admit that it is a bit smaller in the lower arms, making it a bit hard to move around. I definitely couldn't wear a sweatshirt underneath. I was also surprised by the row of snap buttons. From the description, I expected two zippers. And the other reviews are correct, the buttons do seem a bit off, it looks like they're bulging a bit even though the coat isn't too tight. Overall the coat is great though, keeps me very warm and I've gotten quite a few compliments on it.
This coat has withstood several blizzards here in Massachusetts, since I got it about a month ago! Several days were -10 and even lower, with the wind chill factors, and i didnt feel the cold at all while walking my dog. Nice! It's very good looking, has a little bit of a shape to it, and feels just great!
I have found a few tiny downy feathers on my clothes. I don't feel that it's a problem. I do wish there was a way to cinch up the hood when it's on, though, because it is a nice, warm hood that fits nicely, but if it's windy, it doesn't stay on very well. I do wear a hat under it on windy days, and that helps.
The softness of the inside fleece type material, the warmth overall, all the pockets and zippers, and even the extra long cuffs made of the soft stuff make this a great winter coat for freezing cold climes.
Fits well, I'm 5'2 & 135lbs & the medium worked well. Not too loose. Not too tight. It's very warm & comfortable. Style is cute. Only problems I have are the thumb holes seem to be a little off from where they should be located. The gunmetal color is actually a Navy blue, not gray. & the other reviews were correct, the buttons do tend to look like they're stretching even when the coat isn't tight. Overall I would recommend this coat, more so with the sale price.
