I am SO pleased with this. I am 5'10" and wanted a new long padded coat as I had worn my old one out. This comes to my knees, the sleeves are lovely and long so I don't have a gap between coat and gloves. The hood is padded too which makes it lovely and warm head to knee. Adjustable hood is a bonus for a snug fit. Great that it is showerproof given the unpredictable nature of the British weather. I have been wearing it 1 week, throuh a cold snap of -5 followed by torrential rain and have already had my money's worth. Only point to note is I am usually a 16, but ended up with 20 for best fit.
