Beautiful, comfortable, well made jacket. Length of the large is a bit shorter than I had hoped, falls around 25-1/2" from where neck meets shoulder, to the base.
Loved the coat, we only returned it due to the hood. My husband dislikes hoods. Other than that great coat.

This is a lightweight, stylish parka that fit me perfectly (I'm 5' 6" and slender) and felt really good on. It looked just like the picture, and I really wanted to keep it, but I don't think it would keep me warm enough. It has only polyester fill, not down. I get cold really easily -- I am layering up and wearing a hat when other women are still comfy in just a sweater or a light jacket -- and winters here in New England are very, very cold and snowy. So I opted for a down parka instead. It's not as stylish as this one, but I have more confidence that it will keep me warm and dry when the inevitable winter storms hit, and that's my top priority. I think this jacket would be a good choice for someone who "runs hot" and doesn't feel the cold the way I do, or someone who lives in a climate where the winters aren't as harsh as they are up here in New England. It would also be a good alternative to a heavier parka if you wanted to own two winter parkas and wear this one on warmer days. But at this price, I can't afford that luxury, so, with regret, I'm returning it.
About Jackets & Coats
No matter what part of the country you live in, or what time of the year it is, everyone needs a jacket or coat that is functional yet stylish.
A staple for everyone’s closet should be a selection from The North Face® fleece jacket or the Columbia® winter coat collections. They will keep you nice and toasty inside and most come with multi-functional zip pockets to keep your hands and your personal items warm and dry.
Even in the spring and summer months, a light-weight or soft-shell jacket is sometimes needed indoors when the air conditioning is still cranked up. For women, something as simple as a Hurley® jacket or an adidas® Originals track jacket will do just the trick.
For the men, a nice Ugg® leather jacket or Cole Haan® trench coat should be a part of your professional attire. For a nice dinner out on the town, look into a Moschino® blazer paired with a pair of designer jeans. Going for a more casual look, an Alpha Industries® nylon bomber jacket or Cutter & Buck® suede bomber jacket is the right choice.
Back-to-school is the perfect time to find that much needed jacket or coat for your child. Whether it’s a Western Chief® Kids raincoat for those in the Northwest, a Spyder® Kids down jacket for those in the Midwest or North East, or The North Face® Kids fleece jackets for those in the Southwest or Southeast, Zappos has just the functionality and style you’re looking for. Check out adidas® Kids track jackets, Nike® Kids hoodies or DC® Kids pullovers for those kids who refuse to wear jackets or coats.
