May I ask how big you are and how the coat fits you?

Sorry for the slow response -- been gone. 

Anyway, I'm 5'6", 130 lbs (female).  I have long arms and there is still length left in the sleeves.  There’s a lot room around the middle and shoulders for me since it’s constructed for a man, but it appealed to me because I could pile on plenty of extra clothing and it completely covered my butt.  I really hate to sell this parka, but that’s the way it goes.
