Crazy weather made these "duvet"-coats essential. It is very soft and warm and protects me from the cold even when I wear it over my pyjamas to take out the trash. I normally wear size 14/16 but I ordered this in size 20 (XL) because I wanted to be able to wear it with my bulky pullovers and I was glad I did because it is not that large on me. Dark Stone Heather was the color of my choice (although I liked the red one better) because on grey rain stains do not show. I have to say that grey heather it is a lot darker and looks more chic than it does photo.
