Nice jacket
Really nice jacket but needed a sizing was in between S and M since I am a wider back and larger chest.

Very warm although good is huge
The fabric and quality are great! The hood is huge though. I didn’t see this in the pictures online but the one side of the jacket has a piece with a different fabric on it - by the top of the zipper on the left side so if you were to have it fully zipped up, the soft side would be covering the zipper and not rubbing against your chin. It looks sort of weird when you don’t have it done up all the way because it doesn’t match the other side. True to size! I’m 5”5 and about 135lbs and wear a size S. Keeps you warm and covers your bum without being too heavy/suffocating like a longer parka is.

Bye bye Winter Chills
I’m in love with my new coat. It is super warm, and the quality is incredible. I bought it larger in case a sweater would be necessary-it’s all good.

I wrestled with the fit
This coat is amazing. It’s SO warm and functional. I love the magnetic claps over the zipper and the option to remove the faux fur which is pretty bulky or add it on for the windy or really sunny days. The hood up is very warm, cuts the wind on your face and acts as a sun visor. My only problem is that I’m pear shaped. It’s hard to buy coats that sit on the hips. I followed the size guidelines and purchased online. For my hip size, I think the coat is too big. It doesn’t look fitted as it’s intended to. It’s huge in my torso, arm length, and chest. So that’s a downer. Purchasing online meant I had to risk sizing down and having it not fit my hips right. I bought an aritzia coat a few years ago that fit my hips but as I moved it would ride up. So tough call and my only issue. I cut the tags so I’m all in for this size now. Too bad.

Super Disappointed
I was extremely disappointed by this jacket. Everything about it is perfect but the armpit/shoulder area is sewn significantly tighter and makes it extremely uncomfortable. Its so tight and an added thick piece lines the inside armpit, it almost feels as though a wire was sewn in to hold the arms onto the coat. This coat would be a dream if it weren't for this but unfortunately sizing up the issue is still there and the rest of the coat then becomes way too large.

How Does it Fit?
What Size Did You Order?
Not my favorite
Fit is weird to say the least. Ordered a size medium and it fit in the torso but was too tight in the arms. I then ordered a size large and it was the exact opposite. The serene blue color is lovely but overall disappointed with purchase.

Fits Too Perfectly?
It's definitely a slim fit but there is absolutely no room to layer if it gets colder - I suggest sizing up one. I live in Vancouver where the coldest it's been so far in 2021 is -2'C - these jackets are definitely not engineered for -30'C but it does the job where I live. The hood fur obscures your vision and gets in the eyes sometimes so I would also recommend taking that off. It's a good jacket, but nothing I felt excited about so I returned it.
