I bought a size large, as this is what the size chart suggested. I found the large size quite generous, and perhaps I should have gone for a size medium , having said that, due to the colder weather, I found myself having to wear couple thick fleeces underneath, had I bought the medium size I think it would have been a very snug fit.
As for the performance of the coat, it is very waterproof and very wind proof. I’m do like this coat very much.
I do have a couple of gripes, firstly, when taking the coat of to hang back on the hook I’ve noticed moisture inside the sleeve and on the inside back area of the coat. One other small gripe is the zip, it’s very hit and miss, with more misses than hits when trying to connect the zip correctly. I’m getting better at it.
The hood is very good, it’s even detachable should not wish to use it.
I managed to buy this coat at a discounted price, so I was quite lucky.
I would definitely recommend this coat.
