this is a wondeful coat and it was worth every pound. We've been having an unusually long cold snap in London and this coat is fantastic! I'm petite and it looks great on me, the arms actually aren't too long and the whole coat is a great fit. It's really warm, the hood also is not too big over my head and you don't need a scarf as you can zip the coat all the way up. I love that the coat is light to carry around and store or hang up but its sooo warm without being bulky. It even repels water without being made out of ugly waterproof materials. I really like the duffle style and good for Merrell for not shouting their logo all over the coat and ruining the syle, just subtly at the bottom.
