The hood is way too big, but detachable. I will be wearing it without the hood as is comes so far over the face its hazardous as it blocks vision. The coat is heavier than I expected but is good quality and excellent value at the price I paid in the sale. I just wish landsend would make more bigger sizes in Tall. The sleeve length in plus size is too short for me. I would have sent it back had i paid full price because of the hood. There isn't much choice for tall girls and we need longer length coats too. The sleeve length is ok on me and probably very good on someone smaller than me.
