This coat is the right length, giving more protection than a jacket but not too long as to be cumbersome. The colour Sienna Brown is lovely, a much darker colour than it looks on my pc and I'm well pleased about that. It has a smart look because of going in a bit at the waist and because of the flap over the zip (which is a sturdy plastic one much easier to use than the usual LE metal ones) The hood draws up so that it doesn't cover your face, but the coat looks so much smarter without it I think I'l leave it off and wear a hat if necessary, except in really bitter weather. I ignored a reviewers advice to size up as I'm a 16 and 16-18 usually fits well, but I had to exchange it for a bigger size which was done easily and quickly on the phone. It's going to be a firm favourite so Im pleased it looks to be of LE's usual high quality so it will hopefully last a long time.
