Great winter coat
We live in the south and don't need a big winter coat very often. I bought this coat as a final sale for my daughter in an xs which is what she usually wears in JCrew. I also bought the puffer coat in the xs. When they arrived the puffer coat was a true xs but this coat was very big. Too big for my daughter. Great for extra layers underneath but if you want to wear it with just a light vest or turtleneck I would get at least one size down. I normally wear a medium but could fit (snugly) into the xs - I do like the coat though so I ordered a small for myself! The fur trim comes off the hood but the hood itself is not removable.

Wanted to like it but way too big
This coat is enormous. It looks adorable on the hanger, has a nice soft lining in the jacket and a fuzzy lining in the hood, but the moment I put it on, I was swimming in it. I bought a Small (I'm 5'7", 135 lbs) and it looked like a sleeping bag. I thought the drawstring would help, but it only goes halfway around the coat -- the front still just hangs and is not fitted at all. My mom, who is usually a medium, tried it on and it was also huge on her. I can't return it (final sale) but won't be able to wear it at all. Very disappointed.

This coat is HUGE and not in a cute way. For reference, I am 5'3", around 115 pounds, and generally like my clothes to fit a little large. I ordered a small, which is my go-to size at J. Crew Factory. After trying it on, it was apparent that two more of me would have fit comfortably inside the coat. It still looked ridiculous even after adjusting the drawstring. Even if I could exchange it (bought it final sale), I'm pretty sure the XS still would have been gigantic. Very disappointed.

Great parka. Very lightweight coat - not super padded but great for layering pieces underneath. The coat runs large. I'm 5 ft 6 with long arms and the small fit perfectly.

I didn't find the coat (I got XS which is my usual size at JCrew) to be THAT huge, as described by the others. I tried it on with my usual winter clothes (boots, jeans and a heavy sweater) and had slight room to move around (while not looking like an eskimo). As a reference, I'm 5'4'' and 115lbs. Arm length was perfect (it does have an extra cuff as a shield, which was a good surprise to me since I didn't notice that in the picture); hits below the hip (exactly what I was looking for); and the lining is oh-so soft (with a fleece lining for the hood)! I like that I can snap off the faux-fur trim. Overall, a GREAT deal especially I got it on sale. Can't wait to wear it this winter.
