Rated 3 out of 5 Awful for adults, great for small kids
I got the women's large and the fabric is really nice. The cut is horrible. I'm only 5'6" and this thing was exactly the wrong length. Too short and too long to look good. The half sleeves are ridiculous looking. I was about to return it when my 10 year old came home from soccer. She wears an 8 or 10 in children's clothing and the poncho fits her perfectly. I would have given this 1 star, because it is the most poorly cut garment I've seen in a long time, but it looks so cute on my tiny (shortest 6th grader at her school) daughter I gave it 3 instead. Only buy this for a kid or if you want to look 7 months pregnant when you're not.

I am often in a wheelchair, and you can't imagine how awkward it is to get in and out of a jacket or coat until you try. This is a wonderful solution! Easy to get on and off, warm and cozy, and very good weight. With a turtleneck or sweater it will be just right for almost any weather. The zipper comes right up to the top so your neck stays nice and warm, and the length is perfect so it won't tangle in the wheels. Good as a car coat cause your arms are free for movement. Also a good alternative at home which looks smarter than a robe or blanket. So glad you offer it, thanks LLB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColdinMexico Women's Herringbone Fleece Poncho
I bought one of these ponchos for myself (M brown/tan) last winter when they went on sale. I also got one for my mother (blue) and another for my sister (black). We all liked them very much, though I thought a large might be a bit cozier. It is a poncho, after all, so sizing shouldn't be much of an issue.
Today, it's on sale again. I had hoped for the blue, but it's sold out, so I just ordered a black L for myself. Can't wait! These ponchos are perfect for chilly mornings in my nippy house.
One thing. Be careful around the stove. One sleeve got too close to the gas flame and got kind of crusty, which doesn't go away in the wash. Be careful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oceanlizzie The Most Comfortable Jacket!
I bought this poncho when it was on sale and when I tried it on realized I would have paid full price! It's the softest, loosest and flattering jacket I now own! I bought the blue in a medium, which is a size higher than I normality get. However, because of the loose style of it being a poncho, the medium looks great! I can't overly state how soft it is and it's perfect with the large pockets. It's flattering too. Not bulky at all. Just oh so soft. Did I mention it's soft? :) HIGHLY recommend!

Ok so this does fit weird...BUT don't hesitate to buy it. It's so comfortable and will be perfect for store runs, dog walks or any other outdoor activities. It does run large. I usually wear XL or L and ordered M...could have even sized down to S. Will work well with sweaters or turtlenecks underneath and warm enough for New England until November and maybe later depending on what you have under it. I'm short 5-1 so it lands below my waist...maybe mid hip. It pooches out toward the back and that looks a little odd...take a good look at the pic. But it's comfy and will great for me to wear much of the winter in L.A....gets in the 30s here folks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiffer Super soft comfort
I just love this poncho! I don't understand the negative comments on fit or pockets. I'm tempted to buy a secondary color!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Smklong Strange fit
I tried to love this poncho but no matter how I dressed it, it looked like a bad tent. The length was short on the xs but the arms and width were far too big. I wanted a roomy poncho but this was just too much. It might be nice on someone taller

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cfourteen Have to order a second one!
This is my go to spring jacket. I love it, it's so comfortable, fits well, and all you have to do to correct the pocket issue is take a needle and thread and tack it to the edge of the zipper. Pockets then hold down. I would recommend it to anybody with no doubts, and have had several compliments on it.

While I like the concept of the poncho, I'm not sure I like it in this thick fleece. It is quite stiff at the bottom end, but as it is still new, I can't comment on whether it may loosen up after a few washes. I think it is a bit short, too, but now that I look at the picture again, I can see that it looks similar on as it does in the catalogue. I won't return it as I use it when I watch TV in our cooler basement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KackyW Definitely proportioned for a shorter build
I love this poncho and it's now my go-to jacket for spring and fall. But I am quite short (4'-11") so it falls to my hip in the front and a little lower in back. The sleeves are short enough that I can use my hands without digging my way out of the folds. I'm an experienced seamstress and I am not noticing anything odd about the front pockets except that in many garments of this design, they would be nothing more than a flat slash, whereas these are a roomier pouch.
