Rated4out of5byMary The TravelerfromVersatile and comfortableThe jacket is simplistic yet stylish and can be worn for years without being outdated. I live in Chicago and do wear it casually during the winter but can definitely be worn well into spring. I don't recommend it for extreme weather or activities. I wear it shopping, to walk the dog, run errands etc. It's lightweight so it doesn't weigh you down and you don't fee l overheated while shopping.

Rated5out of5byAYDavisfromAwesome Jacket!!!I love this jacket. I just purchased it on sale at REI where is was on a clearance sale for $64 less than the original price. I normally wear a size medium, but had to purchase this jacket in a size small to get a good fit. This is not a problem. I'm just glad I purchased it at a retail store where I could try on a medium, a small, and an extra-small. I almost purchased the extra-small because it was a fitted look, but after consulting with Dana, the sales clerk, I purchased the small. I have plenty of room in the arms and body of the jacket to wear a layer under it in the winter. I plan to use it for casual wear, travel, and to throw on after a yoga class or long run or bike. The dimensions for the small shown on line are the dimensions of my body so I have a perfect fit in the size small. I'm glad I didn't buy the extra-small because it would have been too snug with a warmer underlayer and the medium, my normal size, would have been too larger.

Rated5out of5bySometime hikerfromWonderful Jacket!Finally, a practical, durable, comfortable microfiber jacket that is very stylish and LONG. Good for an urban evening out, or for a walk in the woods. I read a complaint that the sleeves are too tight to go over a sweater - true, but that is not what it is designed for! It is a medium-weight jacket to go over a T-shirt or thin long-sleeved shirt without creating a bulky look. Perfect for spring or fall. I LOVE THE LENGTH! It covers to mid-thigh, so both keeps you warmer, and looks very flattering. I bought a second one and am considering a backup third. I wish it came in more colors....

Rated4out of5byWhoAmIKiddingfromOrder up one size if you want to layerI am a true Medium, and I ordered a Large since I usually wear several layers. I liked where this coat falls halfway on my thighs and has a more contemporary style. I would have liked more year-round colors (rather than just dark eggplant and black), but a great coat overall.

Rated3out of5byWest County fanfromSizing problemI have a shorter jacket of the same materials and love it, so I ordered this. The sizing is way off, it seems to me. I normally wear a small but had to order a medium because although the body fit only a bit snug, the sleeves were so narrow I could barely get my arms through. Now the medium fits a little big in the body but the sleeves are only a bit wider--so narrow that I won't be able to wear a sweater underneath. I can't figure out who they thought they were designing this for.
