3.0 out of 5 stars Check sizing...supplier brilliant though!, 30 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Helly Hansen Women's Largeong Aden Waterproof Jacket (Sports Apparel)
I studied coats a lot before choosing this - my previous Helly Hansen lasted 15 years before water came in, and this looked good on many sites and was a good price here - BUT modern "women's" waterproofs are trying to be a bit girl shaped, which looks nice in a coat, but not much use when you have a fleece on and are dressed for real life. The length looks great on the model, but she must be 5ft 10". I am not (5ft), so it looked a bit daft, and I am a size 12/14 (12 with a t-shirt on) which according to Amazon sizing (and HH website) should easily be within Medium but couldn't move my arms or bend as it was so tight. Thus large would be even longer and not necessarily big enough for a fleece. The coat was well made but the black looked a bit policeman style, and it was surprisingly stiff and noisy when I moved. That may change in use. However, as it did not fit I contacted "Marine and Outdoor Clothing" who could not have been more helpful and prompt with their refund - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as a supplier. Back to the search for a waterproof that IS waterproof, not pink, and not for a tall slim person who has people to hold umbrellas for her anyway and lives somewhere that isn't the north of England and still has summer so never gets cold.

Well if you are short you clearly should not be buying LONG. I have this coat and it is perfect in medium, sizing is correct!
