I'm a UK size 8-10 and narrow across the back. I ordered the XS and it fits similarly to the photo of the model still loose fitting but with a bit less gathering than the photo. I have long arms and was concerned the sleeves would be too short but they are also fine; I think the internal cuff attached to the liner helps with this. The colour is green rather than 'olive drab' as described but perhaps this will wash-and-fade? I feel the cold and wanted a warm jacket that is not restrictive when climbing over countryside walls. The outer shell is quite thin cotton and there is a removable liner which, I think, makes the jacket suitable for covering up on cooler windy days in the summer months, rather than 'extreme cold weather' as per the label! To be fair, it is intended to be worn over a jacket but I think men are more likely to wear it that way than women. So I'm happy with it as a less serious walking jacket to cover up during summer as it's lightweight and would be easy to pack and carry.
Pros: Good Construction, Quality Fabric, comfortable, lightweight easy to pack and carry, good strong zip
Cons: thin cotton if you want a warm winter jacket
I would recommend this to a friend!
