Centigrade Packable Trench Jacket with Self Belt
Nice light coat for the summer
I ordered this coat in a medium and it does run a little big, but if you are between a size 10 and 12 a medium should be good, but there will be some room still in the coat. However, if you want the coat to fit snug and tight, then maybe you should consider a size small. However, the medium also provides arm room within the coat, especially if you should decide to wear a large sweater or thick type of clothing under the coat.
It is not a great coat, but it is okay for the summer months and at the price listed, plus on the easy payments, the coat is fine. However, I do wonder if the buttons on the coat will last long.
OK...for the price
I needed a lightweight jacket that wouldn't cost a fortune for this unpredictable East Coast spring weather. I came across this jacket a few days ago and ordered since it was on clearance.
I received the jacket today and was a little disappointed. It just looks and feels cheap. The jacket would have been much better without those garish fake gold plastic buttons. The jacket runs big and the sleeves are long -- even for me as a person with long arms.
The only reason I am keeping this jacket is that I was not able to find a lightweight jacket under $50 until I found this one.
Just didn't like it...
I have to say that this is indeed going back... The material is way too thin, has swooshing sounds to it and just cheaply made. However had it been heavier and made with quality it would be a winner!
I love this!!
Honestly, I was going to settle for this jacket whether it was just ok or great, because I really need this for a Scotland vacation in June. This is sized perfectly in large. I almost ordered an xl, but I'm so happy I didn't!! This jacket folds up into its own bag, it's fully lined and comfortable and stylish!! This is another great buy from QVC!! Highly recommend you don't wait to get this jacket!! :)
Nice wind breaker
I'm not sure that I would label this an trench minus the fact it has a self tie belt. It is very light which I was looking for however, I wouldn't go out in heavy rain with it on as it is thin also. It hits about 6 inches below the waist and the collar I feel is more for style than use. I prefer to use a scarf when wearing this jacket to keep the cooler air away from my neck. The belt does slide all over and ride up which drives me nuts, so I just tie it in the back didn't make sense to pay the shipping and handling for a jacket that was on easy pay for the same amount! If your looking for your average trench I wouldn't advise, a stylish wind breaker go for it. I have it in basic blk.
Better looking in smaller sizes
I ordered a large in black, and I think it looks better on Lisa or someone pretty small. The buttons are gold and very plastic and cheap looking. They are glaring - would look more classy in black. The jacket just doesn't look good. Too short to really protect you from rain, so get an anorak instead.
I bought the khaki after returning a Dennis Basso jacket that was too large. It is a nice neutral khaki color and fits true to size. The only thing I would change would be the gold buttons, but not a deal breaker for me.
Just what I was looking for
I travel a fair bit overseas. This Packable Trench is JUST perfect when a lighter jacket is needed and it is also waterproof - serving two situations with one item. Every bit of space and weight I can save is a plus and this little jacket folds up so small, weighs practically nothing and yet looks much nicer than a traditional rain slicker or wind breaker. It is just what I was looking for. Fits me very true to size as well. I'll wear it at home too when the weather calls for it.
I adore this little jacket!
I typically would not purchase a jacket so short but this jacket is a must have for my wardrobe. I love the fit and shape of this jacket but the selling point for me was the collar! I love the pleated collar and the way it envelopes my neck. This jacket can be worn on very light days in terms of temperatures..no colder than 60 degrees..because it is lightweight and packable this jacket is a must. I like the buttons and even though I am not a fan of belts, this one works on this jacket and does not make my mid section look huge! I purchased it in the perfect navy:)
The best jacket and so fantastic and will buy in other colors if available.
Its Ok, Not the best
Not sure if I am going to keep this or not but so far its on the negative side. I was excited but its such a let down. I ordered an XS and the fit is big. After looking at the video and seeing that the host ordered a XS I decided to order the same size thinking it ran big (good thing). The sleeves have a lot of space which does not look flattering but (understandable maybe for comfort) and the way it buttons in the front is not good. It buttons right on the edge of each side leaving the rest of the jacket with a lot of fabric. It doesn't have the form fit, it is only created with the belt. And even with the belt the excess fabric makes it non flattering. Fabric- Nice and thin. Pockets seem good. Zipper pouch was nice, it was easy and folds into a small size.
love the sytle
I!m so glad I ordered these jackets. I needed them so bad! Different and not plain. Easy wash on light delicate.. I ordered the beige and green. Good fit and true to size. 1x. Thank you
