I have other Fjallraven gear, and it typically doesn't fit me well as a tall, not thin guy. The Yupik, however fits PERFECTLY. It's the perfect level of snugness around the core to keep warm but allow layering. The length sits well below the waist and doesn't ride up when I lift my arms. The arms are a bit long, but with the adjustable velcro cuffs, I can't even tell. The hood is large, so best suited for a hat underneath.The quality is amazing. This thing is impenetrable by wind. The outer shell is well waterproofed and the inner lining is a nylon material, which I like more than a fleece - less static when taking it on or off. The hood is fleece lined and lets NO wind in.The hood is removable, as is the fur hood lining. The pockets are many and massive. The front hand warmer pockets are fleece lined, and the inside bellow pockets are large enough to carry books around in - not a joke, I do this. There are so many awesome details to this jacket, just buy it and find out.
"Great product for colder weather ( wind & rain). Not for everyday winter wear in most of the US."
Ordered small but exchanged for small in Fjallraven Barents Parka which is longer in sleeves and overall length and possibly not as warm. I am 160 lbs and 6 ft. 3 In. Also liked the feel of the hood trim better on the Barents Parka.
I'll start by saying this jackets so very hard to find online and even in NYC for less than $500 retail. I caught the sale in Nov and thought I was sizing down by buying a small. I'm 5'8 muscular build and usually wear small to medium in North Face jackets. This jacket was enormous, like laughablely enormous on me. I held on to it until January waiting for an XS to get back in stock. Moosejaw honored the sale price (2 months later!) and sent me the new jacket. Th XS fits great and im much happier about the purchase. please BEWARE that these runs at least 1 size larger than American standards!!
This jacket looks even better in person than it does on-line. I didn't find the other reviews that said it ran a size big to be true. I always wear a medium and the same held true for this jacket. I really wanted to love this jacket. It was just a little too heavy for my liking. This is due to the padding vs. using a down fill instead. I'd definitely get a Fjallraven coat for the fall or spring because they won't have all the padding. They all look great and fit well. Just too heavy.
This parka is awesome. I tried it on in the the Fjallraven store in SOHO first. These jackets run big. I normally wear a medium coat and I got this in a small. There is plenty of extra room to layer up underneath. I'm really stoked on this parka. It's very heavy and looks really nice. I hope this review helps.
