Favorite Winter Coat
I had previously purchased the Wakefield without insulation for spring and fall and LOVE IT! I then decided I needed a warmer coat for winter. Spent a month looking and realized what I really wanted was the insulated version so went ahead and made the purchase. The coat is first and foremost, stylish. It looks good with workout wear or a skirt and boots. It is completely waterproof and the insulated version kept me warm and protected from the wind in 15 degree weather. It has a great choice of front closure options. There is a snap at the waist which holds the coat closed when you don't want to zip plus a 2 way zipper and velcro. When I first got it I thought the sleeves were a little long, there is an adjustable strap around the wrist which might need one more tighter option, but I've come to really like the length of the sleeve as it keeps my hands/gloves, warmer and dryer when it is raining or snowing. The sizes for the insulated seem to run a little larger than the non insulated. Overall it is a fantastic coat and I am so glad I found it. There is nothing else like it, particularly when you consider the quality/price relationship!

Best-Ever All Around Coat
My daughter purchased this coat in the unlined version. Her sister and I and two of her friends were so impressed that we all ordered one. I have the lined version in "red" and it is a beautiful dark raspberry color. Since I am usually a "basic black coat" lady, this was a step out of my comfort zone. I have gotten numerous compliments on the color so I don't regret ordering it in red. The insulation, along with the wind and rain proof coating, makes this coat comfortable on all but our coldest winter days. Even so, with a warm wool sweater, it could double as a winter coat in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The fit is perfect. I wear size 4 and the coat in size small is perfect. It is fitted but has enough room for layering or a light jacket underneath. The only drawback for me is the sleeves. I am a true petite at just under 5 feet and the sleeves are long. This will be my winter traveling coat because it will work in many temperatures and in rain or snow. The hood adjusts to fit my small size head so I don't need a hat. It is so well made that I will probably tire of it long before it wears out.

Great coat but not warm enough
I thought this coat would be much warmer but unfortunately it is not. This is more of a light fall/early winter coat that will keep wind and rain out but it is not warm enough for NYC winters. It's very figure flattering and has a cool ribbed detail on the sleeves. The quality and construction is solid as well.

Great Winter Rainy day jacket
True to size, really warm insulated jacket, WATERPROOF, nice longer length (approx 38" back length). I am about 5'2" 100lbs, petite and XS is comfortable with lots of room for some layering. Comfortable, slim fit .
