The Patagonia Prairie Dawn Parka seems to run a little if you are on the spectrum between sizes we suggest leaning towards the smaller size.

Fire, metal, hammer, file–add the sturdy Prairie Dawn Parka to the farrier’s tool set. This feminine workwear-inspired coat is made from rugged organic cotton Stand Up® canvas and lined with cozy ¼"-pile polyester fleece in the body and hood. Insulated taffeta-lined sleeves have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish for added weather protection. This parka has a center-front metal zipper and wide covered placket with metal snap closure, a drawcord adjustable hood and metal snap closures at the wrists. Drop-in/side-entry pockets have hidden snap closures. An adjustable inner waist drawcord provides a flattering fit. Slight drop-tail and hidden hem drawcord help to retain warmth. Above-the-knee length.

Great Parka!
A medium fits me but I prefer a large because it creates an air space of warmth, covers down to mid-thigh, and I don't like clothes snug against me. Very, very warm, the wind cannot pass through it and it cinches along the bottom to keep out the cold air from coming up from the bottom. It's been -15 lately and I don't get cold in this coat if I am moving around at all.

Love this jacket!
I had been searching for a jacket like this for months and finally chose this one. I couldn't be happier with this jacket. It's warm, comfortable, and stylish . I love the lenght and how it covers my butt amd thighs. The material feels tough and durable without being too stiff. I went with a size medium and it fits perfect. I am 5'3 and around 140lbs. and a bit curvy.

Great Customer Service!
Product ended up being not the same as the one pictured on the website, however I was called and emailed and given the opportunity to cancel my order! The jacket itself is very warm and fits perfect!

Cute but runs very large, must larger than expected
Cute heavy duty coat for dry weather. This coat may soak up heavy rain like a sponge. Very disappointing about the size, I normally wear medium, but sometimes size up to large so I went with medium. Waist and arms were huge, I was even wearing a smart wool long sleeve and thick sweatshirt and had plenty of room around the waist and biceps. Cinching the waist only does so much because the coat is so thick. I want to reorder in a small but I'm worried it will go down in size too quickly or the arms will be cut very tight. I'm about 5'2" and 138lbs
