i love this parka - i bought the larger size to allow for jumper wear in the colder weather. The parka fits great and the pull in waist is excellent. Hood is a good size (not too big) and can be pulled in too. big stud shut pockets to keep my keys and phone safe while out dog walking but can also put your hands in at the side should you need to keep warm. A great parka which is not too bulky but lovely and warm.
