Long Silk-Look Raincoat
Larger would be better
I was really pleased to find this raincoat in the catalog at such a good price. Based on other reviews, I ordered a slightly smaller size than what I would have normally. When it arrived, it was a little bit snug in the hips when the coat was fastened. I have returned it and am exchanging it for a larger size. I was very pleased with the quality of the item, and pleased that it even has a removable lining which I didn't expect. I am looking forward to getting the larger size!

Fabulous Coat, But Pockets Are Misadvertised
I ordered the taupe color from the website in a small because the other reviewers were saying it runs large. I would normally wear a medium. Fit was great, and I chose the style because I thought it would be slimming. I'm short, so I always have to keep this in mind.
When I received the coat, I thought it was a beautiful color and I loved the trim, etc. Then I saw the pockets. The website advertised the pocket as a "button trim welt pocket," and that's what you see in the pictures online. The actual pockets are huge patch pockets with a flap on it to look like a welt pocket. The patch pocket makes the whole coat look more stodgy.
So I have to decide whether I'm going to keep it, looking stodgy, or send it back.

Like the hood and removable lining
The size is a little bigger than a large. Narrow at the shoulder and very wide at the waist and hips. The color is also darker than in the picture.
Overall, a nice coat. Like the length.

I liked the look and the feel of the material.
For being petite, the fit was too long and way to wide.. I don't think a smaller size would have helped.

I liked the fact that this coat was machine washable. I did not previously own an all-weather coat in this color. Fits well, as I am only 5'1/4" tall.

great lightweight spring/fall coat
has removable warm lining not mentioned in description.
GREAT for tall size, very long, and with sleeves uncuffed
generously covers my 36" sleeve length.
i added a snap to close up the collar tightly in rainy or cold weather.
