This jacket is great for Vancouver island life. The pockets are fine. The length is nice. The zipper is sticky and difficult. I don't care for the waist much when zipped up. I would have preferred tailoring over the drawstring. Perfect with tights and gumboots. I am 5'9", 135lbs, and bought a medium. It's a bit tight with a thick sweater, but doable. Just looks a bit too bulky. Overall, this a great fall/mild winter coat.
