The coat is nicely made, lightweight and warm. Photo depicts the Harvest Blue color accurately.
Bummed there are only 2 pockets (unzippered!) and they are placed oddly high- not comfy for hand warming. Coat hits me midthigh, not at knee as advertised (and I'm short @ 5'1").

I purchased the xs light balsamic for my daughter who just reached 42 inches tall. The coat is nicely long, goes down slightly above her mid calf. She will definitely get two or even three winters out of it. Color is very nice, love the two way zipper. The wrist gaiters are nice but seem quite tight. The hood could use some adjustable elastic - like in the women's Down With It Parka which I own and love. That would make it perfect! And I agree with the previous reviewer that the pockets would be better with a zipper, again like in the Down With It. My daughter loves the coat though and seems comfy and toasty warm in it.

My daughter snuggled up with this coat and loves it on those really cold days in Steamboat. It keeps her warm from head to toe with the classic down insulation for which Patagonia is famous. She also wore it on a recent hike and subsequent snowball fight around Telluride. It is just what you need to be stylish yet warm, when you live in a ski town in the Rocky Mountains.

- If you find yourself between sizes, choose the smaller for a tighter fit, and the larger for a looser fit.
- Be sure to measure yourself properly.
- If your measurements fall across several sizes, use your chest measurement to select tops, and your hip measurement to select bottoms.
- Consider how your waist-to-hip ratio compares to the brand you're looking at.
According to the numbers you entered in the "Size Me" widget above, your waist-to-hip ratio is
Every body type has a different set of ratios between the chest, waist, and hips. The hip-to-waist ratio is found by dividing the waist measurement by the hip measurement.
An hourglass figure (#1), with a very defined waist, might be around 0.7, while a less curvy body type (#2) might be around 0.9.
An individual with an undefined waist (#3) would be a 1, while an individual whose waist is larger than their hips (#4) would be above a 1.
Different brands use different waist-to-hip ratios when making their clothes. Choosing a brand that uses the a ratio similar to yours can help ensure the garment fits both your hips and waist.
