Rated 4 out of 5Â by Tillystar In two minds
This is a beautiful jacket - sadly the colouring is nothing like the picture on the model, it is green but the sleeves have no black in them at all, only red and burnt orange. There is nowhere near as much contrast between the pieces and patterns. It looks like the FP customers' photos, which I had worked out before buying it but note to FP: it would be nice if stuff did look like it does on the picture. Not sure why this is often not the case, can't blame the screen resolution as the buyers' photos are an accurate representation.
Anyway, it fits true to size, I am a small to medium in FP jumpers and tops and got this in a medium. The sleeves are perfect on my 5'10 slim frame and it hangs well - a little big but it is meant to be oversized.
The main reason I am in two minds is that it is so incredibly thin, much more so than I realised - it will not provide more warmth than a cotton sheet, so for the price, even on sale, it is on the expensive side for me - it will be a statement piece more than an actual useful jacket I guess. The pockets are also set a tiny bit high to be comfortable to put your arms in but for a shorter person this probably won't be so.
So in short, top marks for style, but scoring low on usefulness!

This jacket is awesome! It's comfortable and stylish. This is a statement piece, I always get compliments when wearing it. It also is good for layering sweaters/cardigans under. 34b chest I'm a small- not to snug not too loose, just right.

Love the drape of this jacket! It will make a great addition to my wardrobe when the weather warms up again. I would say that it runs a bit big - I sized down to a medium, and it's a bit tight when I zip it up, but I would wear this draped open, and the sleeves are nicely fitted in the medium. Makes me look super slim from the side. Be warned, this is green, not really a dark olive. I really love it. Grab it while it's on sale!

I love this parka because it is unique enough with the patterned sleeves and faint green patterned front, but also pretty versatile. It is perfect for all seasons in Southern California. So, if you are looking for a heavier coat, this is not it. It is definitely more of a windbreaker fabric. The only problem I have with it is that the body is big, but the sleeves are tight in comparison. So tight, in fact, that I can only wear sleeveless tops underneath. (I bought a L). I do get a ton of compliments (like most FP stuff). And I hate showing my arms, so this is a great lightweight option instead of a cardigan.

Although its cute, it isn't made well. Fit is awkward through shoulders and arms. Also note that sleeve color is not as appears in this photo. Refer to customer photos for true color. Overall wasn't free peoples best effort.

I had been eyeing this jacket for a while, but as one of the previous reviewers mentioned, for me the jacket wasn't warm enough to justify the price. However, with that said, everything else about the jacket is amazing. The details are perfect, the fit is gorgeous. It flows well, flatters and fits like a dream.
I'm on the petite size, so looser pieces tend to swallow me, but this jacket hits me in all the perfect places. I think everyone should own this jacket!
I will add, as one of the previous reviewers said, it definitely looks more like the pictures FP customers have been posting than it does in the website photo. I, too, wish FP would address this issue, as items typically don't look remotely as they do in the stock photos.
