I love this coat!
Looked for a long time, for a non-down, durable, stylish, comfy & warm cold-weather coat. this was a perfect find! I ordered the small. and it fits my slender 5'10 so well! it goes down to about mid thigh on me, which is comfortable for walking, and has the up-zipper option for a vent at the bottom... perfect arm length for my long arms, and I love the cuffs inside the sleeve, for added warmth. the hood actually stays on my head and the furry neck just feels luxurious! the fur attachment on the hood can block vision as another review found, but it folds back easily and stays put, which solves the problem. There are lots of pockets. but the hand pockets are really low, so kind of awkward the style and fabric is casual- I can wear it out hiking in the snow, walking in the rain and to work. the fur comes off and the raisin color is soft enough and the material is light enough that I'll wear it for a spring jacket too- and altrec has the best price!
kept me warm in 13 degree weather...
I needed something to keep me warm for my 1.5 mile walk to and from work that wasn't a huge puffy monstrosity and this is it! It's well made and has no down filling which is good as I try to avoid animal derived products. (the zipper pulls have a leather tab on them so its not 100% vegan unfortunately...) I am glad I bought this coat. It's warm, the fabric is nice and soft yet water beads up and rolls off, and it has a nice slim silhouette. I'm 5'2, 110lbs and the small fits well over bulky winter clothes. It also feels like it will hold up nicely for a few years.
Calling all long armed ladies
I am nearly 5'9" with very long arms for my height. I ordered this in a M and it fits like it was made for me. The Andorra coat is warm without being bulky and the fit is streamlined. If I had my choice I could have done without the front patch pockets, and definitely would have lined the side pockets with the delightful fleece from the collar of the coat. That said, I have been searching for years for a down free knee length coat that fits my long arms. Mission accomplished. This year I will be toasty as I weather the outdoor spring soccer tournaments in MA!
