The waist on this jacket is terribly wide. I am a medium and felt like I may have been wearing an XL. Also, the jacket is way too long. You will have to keep the drawstrings pretty lose to be able to easily reach into your pockets. Having them this loose lets cold air in much more easily than in other rain-jackets I have purchased.
I do not recommend this product.

It's a shell without inside layer.
It's can not keep you warm.
It's could function well as a rain jacket.
I paid $6 for shipping, and then $10 for shipping it back for return.
A total of $16 and two trips to the postal office, one trip to Academy were wasted for this jacket.
Academy and REI stores both rejected for accepting the return.

I gave my husband the jacket for Christmas, but it was small because of the tapered coat bottom. I sent it back and ordered the next largest size. He was anxious to try it outside in the cold, but will have to wait. He likes the idea of the tapered bottom, because it could keep the cold out.
Hopefully, the next jacket will be just right.
