Rated 4 out of 5 by Sodalite Useful purchase
Very pleased with this coat. I am 5'1" and it comes about 1" below by knees. I bought the XS as I am normally a size 10 and it fits perfectly around the bust and hips. Sleeves are a little long but that will keep me warmer. As other ladies have commented, the hood is large to say the least, I did try folding it back from the front, which I suppose I could do if it is very cold and I need the hood, otherwise I wont be able to see where I'm going! Apart from the hood everything else is fine, it's light and warm and I shall be keeping it. Also, happy with the gunmetal colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Generalstore Great coat
I really like this coat, it is a good shape and fits very well and feels warm. I am a size 12 and would normally buy a small but I noticed on the video how close fitting it is and so went up to a medium which fits perfectly and I can wear a heavy jumper or jacket underneath and still move my arms! Got this in gunmetal, it looks very smart

Rated 4 out of 5 by AJS265 good coat
This coat has just arrived. I saw it on TV last year and thought I wasn't needing a winter coat, as I had already brought a duffel coat from the shops on the High Street.
However in the bad winter last year I was still cold with my coat on and jumper on underneath, so this year, after seeing on TV that they said this would keep you warmer - I thought I would try this.
I am a size 14/16 and have got the large size in gunmetal which fits me fine on the shoulders plus it doesn't look bulky like other padded coats I have tried before.
My only fault like the last reviewer is the hood is huge and falls over my eyes, so I won't be able to see where I'm going when I'm out and about, so I will need to make it smaller somehow because I would like to keep the coat.
It is also a little long on me at 5ft 2" tall but I knew that would be the case and it will mean I am warmer this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tutu Better than I expected
Previous reviews on this item left me wondering whether I'd made a wrong decision ordering this item. However, on receipt I can't fault it. I'm 5.2 and bought this coat in Gunmetal, size XS. It fits perfectly and I can see this becoming my 'go to' winter coat for this year. The colour is very on trend and I look forward to wearing it out. Great coat for the price and it can easily compete with those found in the High Street.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BigFIFi Good everyday coat
Bought this coat as TSV in gunmetal last year. Found the sleeves to be a bit short but coat length great. The filling is not thick but despite this it kept me warm through last winter's terrible weather. One major problem is the hood, it is huge, fine if your hairstyle resembles Marge Simpson but otherwise too big even when wearing a hat. I ended up having to take the hood in just so it would stay up, don't know if this years model will have changed it's size.
For sizing I am a 14 and a medium is a good fit.

I bought this coat in black the last time it was on air. I like the coat it's very snug. I wish I hadn't bought it in black though, it always looks dusty as though the filling is shedding from the inside. I never feel good wearing it for this reason.
