When I tried it on I was pretty sure I could not talk myself out of it. I did not need it , I have so many jackets already. But this is nice and I am never sorry that I got it. The fit is just right which is sometimes hard for me, being shorter and stocky( being kind ). I am 5' 7" and 180 lb , not fat but 20 lb more than i would like to be. I bought the Sz Lg. Fits great , taller would fit even better.
