I bought this as a lightweight shell to replace an old softshell that was falling apart. Good value for money... I'm 5ft6 with a C-cup and long torso/long reach so I ordered a size L. The L is a good length for me in the arms and waist and the bigger size gives me room to layer up. I liked the many color options on this coat-- more than the normal boring ones for women. I have used it to block ripping winds in southern Alberta (last week it was > 150 km/h in the valley bottom) and in moist ice fog and was impressed with it's ability to keep the elements out.
