Long Silk Look Raincoat
Collar not as pictures lead one/shoulders big
Given what's on the market today, this is a quality coat in terms of materials and workmanship generally. The problem is that the design needs improvement as it looks large in the shoulders--not good for plus size women--and the collar for the Moss 3x is not as picture for the olive in other sizes or for the other two colors. It does not give the same sharp tailored look and lies flatter and looks rounder on both sides than the collar in the picture. The coat is also so heavy that between that and the length a 5'4" person who is a large plus size might find it more encumbering to get around in than a shorter coat. However, for heavy downpours this is definitely the type of coat people need as it covers all body areas well and the hold helps in that regard too. I rated it one notch lower than I feel most with these concerns would today because
of remembering how well everything was made in the 60's and even 70's and being disgusted that this is the only raincoat coming somewhat close to that--and wondering why they can't do what makes sense and a)improve collar design, b) offer more attractive colors and trims like the blue shorter version, and c) make it more lightweight and improve the shoulder tops so that they look less puffy?

The coat seemed like a great value
Unfortunately, I had to return it. It ran too large. I sent it back 10 days ago and checked on it yesterday and they say they have yet to receive it. I used the sticker they sent me to return so I hope it all works out. I ordered a size smaller, but unfortunately the Moss color was sold out. The coat I did receive seemed very nice, so I am hoping for the best. I would love to give another review when I receive the coat I sent back for a exchange.

Taupe Long Silk Look Raincoat
I didn't even try the coat on - so I cannot comment on size. I was shocked at how the brown lining made the coat look so unattractive. That is why it is probably on clearance. It's too bad because there are not many long raincoats on the market. Will try the olive green coat at some time.

nice coat so far
Glad to have chosen bigger size, fits great, love the olive green, which is true to color as shown.Outer fabric is not silky soft as I hoped feels more like rubber. But it protects me well from wind and rain - that's what I bought it for. Hope to be able to kept the great rain protection...

I chose this coat because of the length and color.
I purchased this coat because of the style, length and color options other than black. I also like this type of coat because it is versatile for almost any weather. At the time I purchased it I was able to save money and I thought it was a good deal compared to other coats like it.

Love this coat!
Fits great; moss green color exactly as pictured. I bought this coat as a lightweight summer raincoat, not noticing that it had a removable lining, so that was a bonus, extending the seasons on either side. I love the way it hangs, the length is perfect, it's roomy enough (even with the unexpected lining) to wear over lightweight sweaters and suits.

This is the perfect all weather coat!!!
I have been looking for a coat like this for several years. I can only find black or Kaiki long and short. But not beautiful styles and colors in my colors. The coat can be worn for dressy occations or casual. It is elegant. It has a winter lining that can be removed. It has a wonderful hood which I love when it rains or snows. I finally found the perfect all weather coat.
