The fit chart is accurate.
Warm and comfortable
Well made and dense wool, hoping it will soften up a little with use. No complaints about the hood, it certainly is large to accommodate a good size hat underneath and then keep your neck warm. If I am just wearing the hood without a hat I just fold the brim up a couple of times and it does not cover my face. Really like the neck gaiter and how it unbuttons when you do not need the extra coverage or start getting a it warm. The front pocket is great for keeping your hands warm. 5,10 and 155lb - medium is perfect for me, same with the sleeve length.
Got the medium and the shoulders and hood were enormous but the waist was tight and it was too short. Putting it on was a wrestling match because of the tight waist. I contacted for advice about going larger but the CSR just copied and pasted the website info and called me Mark. I figured it’s time to cut my losses and get a refund, as I’m sure I’d be swimming in a large and the hood would cover my nose. Aside from the fit, doesn't seem as robust as my vintage Woolrich jacket which I aimed to replace, but it was pretty dense and cool looking. I wish it fit me better. I will keep looking.
Extremely satisfied. Delivery was fast, the price was right and the Anorak is tough, durable and warm. It's not like some cheap versions on line, and good value for the quality that the more expensive versions can't justify in my opinion. Will be wearing around the farm and hiking for foreseeable future.
I purchased this anorak because the reviews were positive and the price was right. Since it was my first, I found determining the correct size to be a challenge. I’m 5’10”, 225 lbs with more of an athletic build. I wear a size 46 sport coat and normally 2XL jackets preferring a bit looser fit. The 2XL anorak was huge for me and the Large just a bit too tight in the shoulders. I finally ordered the XL and found this to be comfortable with the ability to layer appropriately. Tiffany, Customer Service Team Member, was awesome through this process. She was incredibly helpful, supportive, and represented the company positively and professionally!
Finally, I found this product to be well-designed, of excellent construction, and the perfect solution to my winter camping needs. An amazing value for the quality!
