Rated 1 out of 5 by hello123 Not what I expected
I was excited to get this jacket, as I'm 5'11'', and finding clothing that fits properly can be challenging. I was very disappointed to find that the sleeves were too short. Coat is sewn well, and is warm, yet lightweight. Probably very nice on someone shorter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MsMMB Nice little jacket
This is a mild weather jacket, not for cold, cold days, and not rain resistant. I think it will probably be comfortable on days in the 50s, but not lower. High 40s with cashmere sweater underneath might be OK.
My opinion is that it runs just a little bit skimpy. I purchased a size that's ordinarily HUGE on me, and it fits exactly right. The sleeves don't even need shortening, and usually I lop off about 1 1/2 inches in an alteration. My heaviest sweaters might even feel a little "stuffed" under this jacket. Shoulder seams are right where they belong -- not a quarter of an inch to spare.
Advantage: machine washable. Another advantage: crams into airplane overhead compartment and comes out without wrinkles.
This jacket will go onto a lot of airplanes.
