Rated 3 out of 5 by craigs1gurl Honest Review
I LOVED this jacket when I first got it. Fit is awesome, long sleeves, very warm, super light weight, great snap closures, hangs perfect length and washes beautifully. My only complaint and reason for returning this item was the down feathers start to come out everywhere after a couple months of wear. This may be fine with some folks but it was truly annoying for me. And, would it still be warm after loosing so much down? Other than that one thing I just loved it!

I ordered this in the teal and just love the color & style.
It is very warm without being too bulky.
I find that I am wearing it more often than my old LLBean down coat!
The arms do run a bit long , but not enough to worry.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Zira100 Nice looking but fragile
I really liked the style of this and the fact that it's lightweight but warm for colder days in N Central Florida. I've had the jacket less then a month and there's a little nick in the front about 1/8", but that's enough for feathers to pop out. Also, I've noticed feathers escaping here and there, as if they can find their way through an opening as small as what the point of a needle would make. Unfortunately, I can't return it as I took in the lower side seams a bit because the jacket, while fits my wide shoulders nicely, was too "floaty" (big) around the hips. Not a good fit for someone like me with wide shoulders, long arms, but narrow hips.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ToastyinCA Love it but....
I love the fit and the styling...so much so that my 20 year old daughter requested one. The only problem is....the down really sheds on your clothes! My daughter had her jacket on and carried her backpack and when she took off her coat her back was covered...I had a similar experience when I wore the coat out all day. We are keeping the coats, but have to be very careful not to wear black underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GoldenRetrieverMommy Love this shirt for comfort. Fit is not ideal.
I have been looking for a lined shirt that I can wear around my house, which I like to keep quite cool (about 63 degrees). I saw this shirt, and realized it's exactly what I wanted. The shirt arrived yesterday. I put it on, and I was comfortably warm all day in my house. Plus, it adds comfort outside when I put my down parka on over it. I like it so much that I am ordering a 2nd one today.
Before buying initially, I read all the reviews, and realized my normal Large size would not fit over my hips with this garment. (I'm a size 14 on top, and 16 on the bottom.) So I ordered an XL. The bodice is very loose and doesn't look as well shaped as it does in the pictures. However, the hip portion fits almost perfectly. So the reason I gave only 4 stars is for the straight fit.
If you've got a figure similar to mine (larger size in the hips than the bodice) and you want something that will fit perfectly, this won't be for you. But if you need a warm shirt either for cool indoor or mild outdoor conditions, and are more interested in comfort than style, I heartily recommend this shirt. Same if you have a straight figure.

Really love this sporty shirt/jac. Fit is wonderful for a more slender person, sleeves are LONG enough - yeah!! Love and have both colors. Medium for 5'6", 140 lbs. Thanks once again for great products and service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SandraK Fits a shorter person better than expected
I'm 5'3" and approx. 160 lbs, so I ordered this in a M, and it fits just fine. I always have a problem where in order to get more fitted tops to fit around my hips, they end up being too big in the shoulders. This shirt/jacket fit better than expected, and I'm glad I ordered a M, as a L would've been too big.
Nice looking on, nice finish to the fabric and I liked the reddish lining on the inside. I agree with some previous reviews saying that the sleeves are a little too long, so I'll just have to roll mine up.
It's a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 Super warm but lightweight!
I was so thrilled when I put this jacket on! It is super lightweight but still has so much warmth! Its perfect! And the teal color is wonderful! It goes with everything! I typically wear large tops, but after reviewing what other people had to say, I went with the medium jacket and it fits perfect! I would have been swimming in the large! So happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by babashopper A Different Down Jacket
I love the styling of this jacket. The magnetic pocket-flap closures, the covered zipper with snaps, the two vertical snaps at the wrists, and the texture of the outer fabric make it not your typical ski jacket. I ordered my usual size (small), and it fits as expected, with room-enough for another light layer underneath. At 5'2" and 112 lbs., I probably would have ordered a PETITE small had it been available, but I am still happy with the fit of the REGULAR small. If you want this jacket to fit snugly, as it does on the blond model in the catalog/online, then you might choose to order one size down. Otherwise, I'd recommend ordering your usual size. The sleeves are a bit long for a shorter woman but not a problem. (When I'm driving with my arms outstretched, I actually prefer a slightly longer sleeve.) The two vertical snaps at the cuff allow the wearer to turn up the cuffs, if so desired. Oh, yes, I must not forget to mention the orange lining that comes with the gray jacket. Fabulous and fun!
