- Nice Coat, too Big (Review by AK Skier)
I really like this sweater. The cut is nice, fitted but not too much so to accommodate layers. The fleece inside is soft. It really is more like a light jacket than a sweater. I can see wearing it in shoulder seasons outside more than hanging around indoors. It seems windproof and weather resistance. Sadly, it's too big for me. I'm usually a small or M in OR, either slightly tight S or a loose M, but this is just too much fabric and too long in the arms. I'm 5'9, 130 lbs with a slight frame. Hope this helps others decide re. sizing.

- Sensible and Stylish (Review by coliflower)
I'm very impressed by the quality of this coat and the ability to stay warm and dry. It's even warm in a wind storm. The wool doesn't pile and the shape is very feminine. I get a lot of compliments on this jacket and the classic look will be years of wearing. I'm 5'9" and 145 pounds and ordered the medium. The sleeve length covers my entire arm well (I'm lanky).

- Versatile cool-weather layer (Review by Ra)
I got this just in time for a two-month trip to the Andes and found it to be the perfect outer layer for casual trekking and travel. It was my only "outer" layer (other than a rain jacket and umbrella) and was perfect in temps down to about 50 F. I'm 5'7", 135 pounds, and like most OR items the medium fit me perfectly. The sleeve length, overall length, and athletic cut are just perfect. I got the brown, and it looks like a classic wool sweater. The polyester lining feels great and adds warmth. The only improvements I would make to this hoody would be to slightly lower the pockets (the waist bulges out if you put very much in them) and to stitch closed the gap between the polyester lining and the wool outer layer (this gap is precisely where you'd expect an inner pocket to be, and this bit me in the butt at least once).
