It took me a long time to find a down jacket that fit well and could be versatile. This is the jacket!! The pockets are large and I especially like the extra pocket at chest level. Even with a small stature, (5.1') I have found other comparable jackets to be too short and/or too bulky. This jacket covers my bum and renders a very attractive tailored fit (there is plenty of room for layering). It was worth the long wait - I would recommend this jacket to a friend!!
