Women’s Powder Summit™ Down Jacket – Extended Sizes is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ordered a size up & still tight in shoulders I love this coat, it is warm and toasty the color is bright and it is just what I need living in northern Maine. The problem is that I read reviews that it runs small, so I ordered it in the 1X to allow for extra room. Well, either my arm length must just be extreme or this coat is made to only fit a supermodel as this is still tight in the arms and shoulder area. The rest of it fits perfectly. I would recommend this coat to everyone, but maybe be prepared to order a size or two larger than you normally would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coat I loved this coat but when I got it home it was way to small. I am disappointed. It's a great coat but sizing runs smaller

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs small, ordered a size bigger The Minnesota cold has been horrible this year and this jacket is amazing to it. My heat in my car wasn't working correctly, would not work on the passengers side but would work on the drivers side and even with my heat/cold combo it kept me really warm. I really wanted the color in blue but it was sold out in my size. The white is all that was left, even though it says it is harder to stain because of the fabric, I have to say it does make marks if you are using it on a daily routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Stylish I really love this jacket! We don't get much frigid weather here in the south - but, this winter has been record setting cold... averaging single digit temps during the day. So, I decided to get a true winter jacket... I love everything about this jacket and beyond it's functionality it's stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm and roomy If you need to stay warm, this is the jacket to buy. I live in the Adirondacks and the temperatures have been below zero for two weeks and next week looks like more of the same. I walk my dogs everyday, ride snowmobiles, and am outside often - I really needed and appreciate this jacket. A lot of nice features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very happy with the jacket Exactly what I was looking for. It is not easy to find a plus size functional winter jacket which would not make you looking huge. Actually I would say that this jacket is slimming! I look in it as I would be 50 pound less just wearing puffy winter jacket. Interesting trick! :) Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome coat! I had to come to Illinois in January and battle -40 wind chills. This coat blocks all the wind and repels rain and snow. It's like a little heater when it reflects my body heat back. I love this coat, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for real women I ordered this jacket and really liked it when I saw it out of the package. I thought it would perfectly meet my needs. I had ordered the largest size but was very disappointed when it did not fit. The largest size was advertised as being one to two sizes larger than what I normally wear and compared to other jackets that I have that fit well. I have large upper arms and am "thick" across the chest and shoulders as are most full-bodied women. I am not a skinny ski model but I am not obese. The jacket was so tight across the upper body that I could not zip it up. I really needed this jacket to work for me but instead had to send it back at a cost of $14.00!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and Warm I love this coat. I am 6ft tall and wanted a longer coat, I thought this would be a good fit. The arms are a little short for me. I am normally an XL but bought a 2X so it would be a bigger fit for the multiple layers. It isn't bigger, more like an XL. I stil love this coat though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfy I love jacket! Being a hockey mom I like a jacket that I can wear a sweatshirt underneath or no sweatshirt. Very comfy, no irritating tags or hoods that don't lay down...I hate that. Very happy .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great jacket but... Loved the light weight and style of the jacket but the arms (not the length) were tight and uncomfortable so unfortunately I'm sending the jacket back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok product Warm but thicker than I like. Kind of restrictive when moving but is warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm! This jacket is slightly longer than most so my butt is covered but it is not difficult to slide around on the car seat. I do not feel the cold MN wind blowing through the jacket and can slightly feel the warmth from my body radiating back to me. Sleeve liners with the thumb hole are a little short. I will have to use it without putting my thumbs through the holes. Jacket is just a little snug. I don't think I could wear my blazers or a thick sweater under it. Hyper Purple is VIVID in color but pleasant!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great coat arms too short I wish this coat would have fit right and there were a couple defects as well. The fit was great everywhere except in the length of the arms :( I also noticed when i went to unzip it for the first time that the velcro on the flap that covers the zipper was coming apart :( Wish i could have loved it but had to return it. For this price you expect excellent workmanship and fit
