ordered on monday, arrived on wednesday, and for once i'm glad it's raining and gusting at 40mph winds! ordered an xs (5'5 100lbs) which fits pretty well if i adjust everything - and luckily you can adjust just about everything on this jacket. i like that you can cinch width of the waist from the back using the snap buttons like another reviewer mentioned. the pass holder on the left sleeve cuff is nice (but i'm not sure why i need a mirror on my right sleeve). jacket length is longer and covers my butt, sleeves are just the right length. pit zips are easy with the two-way zippers and zipper action is nice and smooth.
my only complaint about this jacket is that the left pocket is closer to the front center of the jacket than the right pocket, which feels really weird when i want to stick my hands in my pockets and everything feels asymmetrical and uneven. it also seems like they didn't compensate for the lost depth of the left pocket, because it feels like the extra material of the pocket's fleece lining is bunched up inside the pocket. other than that, i dig this jacket.
it's warm, looks super cute, has lots of pockets to hold my junk, came in my size, AND the price was right! :)

This is a sweet-looking coat but I had to send the first one back and order a size larger than normal and it's STILL sort of tight across the hips. But there are lots of cool little pockets and it's warm as toast AND a great deal so I guess I'm going to try it out. I am 5'6" and 135 lbs and almost always a M. I got an L in this jacket.
