I am just shy of 5’3” and about 145 pounds, the medium is perfect. It goes a bit below the knees but that is what I was looking for to keep my legs warm. If you’re on the fence I’d buy it!”

KAR says “I was very surprised much how liked this jacked. It feels heavy, well made and kept me very warm. I really liked the drawstring for the detachable hood as well. I wanted a jacket that didn’t have any animal products used to make it so I gave this one a try and I am happy I did. Fits as expected, although if you plan to were very bulky sweaters underneath you might want to size up. It was long enough to cover most my thighs. The only thing I wish it had was interior lining for extra warmth and coziness.”

Arlexpy says “Super cozy and warm. Not too baggy, but fits over my thick winter sweater. The sleeves are nicely lined so you don’t have to worry about your torso being the only warm thing if you’re like me and can’t regulate heat in your extremities. The fur lining is lovely and soft and there are lots of little design things that make it well put together. So far the hood’s fur lining isn’t even making my fine straight hair staticky, despite being DELIGHTFULLY FLOOFY. I wear 14-16 and ordered the XL. It fits well.”
4. Wantdo Thick Winter Coat Quilted Puffer Jacket with Removable Hood

The jacket is so warm and looks terrific and feels great. I am in love with this jacket! It looks exactly like the picture. I removed the hood because I don’t really care for hoods — would rather wear my own hat — and the jacket looks great with the hood detached. It really is terrific and I’m so glad I bought it! Couldn’t be happier.”
5. Noize Aspen Storm Parka Winter Insulated Faux Fur Hood Jacket

Sara Larkins says “I normally wear a medium and I ordered this coat in a size large. I definitely could have gone with my normal medium size because it fits plenty big. Since I can cinch the waist though it definitely helps! I love the yellow. It isn’t a bright yellow it’s more khaki like. The lining is soft and the coat isn’t super warm. It’s more lightweight than expected but with a sweater underneath it would be fine. I like the length and the nice roomy hood.”

Amazon Customer says “Seriously warm jacket (although no jacket truly keeps me warm in single digits and below, without some serious layering). It’s puffy but has a streamlined, flattering cut. I got the beluga, which is beautiful, but difficult to describe — like a khaki-greenish grey (not as brown as it looked online). It does run small — I’m an 8-10 and usually wear a medium, but the large fit me perfectly. And last but not least — I love that it’s not really down!”
9. Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket Storm

Rhonda says “Coat fits true to size. I ordered a large. There will be enough room for a long-sleeved sweater but not a lot of layers. However, because the cost is well insulated this should not be a problem. I’m 5’7″ coat hits at mid-calf. The zipper is smooth. Zips up from the bottom. The buttons over the zipper provide extra warmth The elastic around the wrist prevents air from coming up the sleeves. The hood has a drawstring around the face. Hood is detachable. The fur is also detachable. Fur looks and feels nice. It is insulated but not too puffy. I haven’t been in rain yet. So can’t vouch for water resistance. I like the coat. Good price. I would recommend it.”

Cris says “The jacket took some time to be delivered as there was no Prime option, however, I am pleased with it. It is not a thick coat, but it does insulate the chest, arms, and hands (pockets) well. This is the type of coat where you are not able to layer up. So, for warmer body people, a shirt and undershirt with this coat are okay. It does run a size small. So, if you do want space, I would recommend going up one size. I purchased a large and it feels like a medium. Winter in NY is upon me so I will test it out and if I have to update then I will.”
