A crisp take on a modern anorak, this poplin piece features drawstrings at the waist and hem to cinch in the fit. Well constructed with a button-off hood, flap pockets, and hidden zip and snap closure, this is an oversized number in a trio of on-trend hues. Three-quarter length. Long sleeves. Crisp cotton poplin with a water-resistant finish. Unlined. Imported.
I wanted to love this coat, but I was very disappointed when I put it on. I see now why the model wears it this way - it is the only way the coat will look good on you if you do not have big wrists, rather wide hips and small chest. The coat doesn't look flattering at all on me: It is too tight at the chest, the sleeves are too wide, and the coat is way to big at the hips area. I am 5'3", 110 lbs, chest 34B. I bought it in size 2 - my usual GH size. Back it goes! I am sorry for the negative review. II still love Garnet Hill!

Review 2 for Convertible Hooded Anorak
Exactly what I was looking for
Date:April 16, 2014
Love the coat. I would say the fit might be a little large but I like it that way. There are cords to pull in the waist. I'm in rainy Seattle and I though it might not work well in the rain. I haven't taken it out in a big downpour but for the often light to medium sprinkling we have here it works just as I had hoped. Love the blue color that I chose.
LOVE this jacket! I got it in the blue and it's simply stunning, a real nice way to beat the springtime rainy day blues in Oregon! It runs a little large, so order down, but other than that, it's top notch!!! You will be glad you ordered it.

Review 4 for Convertible Hooded Anorak
Bright spring jacket
Date:March 6, 2014
When (if ever) the weather warms up here, this will be a great lightweight jacket. The size 18 is fine for me--a little big, but I want to wear it over sweaters as well as thin layers. (Unfortunately, the garment measurements shown are for pants rather than tops.) Though this jacket is not meant for serious rain, the bright red will make it visible for long walks on cloudy days. I'll have to alter the sleeves: they're clearly sized for a taller person (I'm 5'5"), and the elastic cuff can be stretched but not made smaller without adding a big pleat. I might instead remove the elastic and turn up the cuff. I do wish that Garnet Hill would always include a photograph of long sleeves without the push-up to the elbows, which isn't how I would wear a jacket. By the way, although a small inside pocket isn't typical for lightweight jackets, it would be most welcome!
