Comfortable and chic
I love my new Haven parka! I am a size 4 in most things, and the small fit like a dream. The sleeves are a good length also; I find that is one of the most aggravating things about buying size small in coats.... most coatmakers seem to think small people have short arms - not necessarily true! This coat is fitted in all the right spots while not sparing on utility - it is one of the warmest coats I've ever worn, period. I also love that it's a little bit long; that extra few inches really keeps the warmth in. This coat can be dressed up or down, which is one of the main reasons I bought it, and I'm not disappointed. I may have to buy another in another color. :)

I live in Boston, and temperatures can get really low. This coat effectively isolates me from outside conditions, be it wind or rain. It is very warm and completely waterproof, yet very comfortable and stylish. Highly recommended!

i have a busy life working full time and caring for my young children and looking for a coat that looks a little more put together but also very functional. this is perfect! it's so comfortable and works with everything! i love the material and fit. i'm 5'4" and 133 but larger chested right now (breastfeeding!) so i got a medium and has enough room for me to wear a sweater and not be too tight around the chest. feels really well made and i love the style. definitely worth the price.

Really like the coat. If there is a negative its a little stiff. It is a form fitting coat. Starting the zipper is a little awkward. Looking at purchasing another Merril coat for Spring.

I love this coat... I'm always cold - it keeps me warm, I ordered an extra small and was not sure if I needed a small. I am like 5'2 110 lbs and wear xs tops and size zero-size 2 pants. The zipper was a bit stubborn to start, but now is pretty good. Looks super cute too! I wear a snowball hat, gloves, and coat and am not too cold waiting for the bus - hits after butt. Perfect and adorable! I really am stoked it's water resistant - most pea coat like things are not! The sleeves have fittie things so the air doesn't go up your arms (unlike most pea coat like jackets)
