by DanneauxfromThe large was small enough for a child!Purchased this at the request of a nonmember relative and had to return it for her. I was with her when she opened it, and can report firsthand what she found: She is 5'4 and 125lb and the size Large was so small she literally could not put her head through the neck hole and the sleeves were too tight as well. She never was able to don the garment.
Her example did not have the quarter-zip...just an extremely tight mock-turtleneck.
She also found the bottom closed with three small hooks-and-eyes that would have been hard to open or close had she worn the garment. The description said it had snaps.
On the other hand, she really liked the box it came in -- made like a tatami mat out of many small lengths of bamboo, all stitched together with great care.
The suit had a very strong chemical odor on opening and it never did dissipate during the time it was out of the box.
