I'm usually a 10, maybe a 12 if very tight around arms or on bum...just wondering which size to get, and how warm it is?

Hi, I just bought one of these, I'm an 8-10 on top and 10-12 on the bottom and bought a 10, which is pretty snug. I took ages deciding between the 10 and the 12 but went for the 10 in the end because overall it looked more like a "normal" coat than a walking coat, if you know what I mean, because it looked more fitted. I can only fit a thin jumper underneath as it is quite snug around the bum and arms, so maybe a 12 for you? (It is adjustable on the inside at the waist if you want to nip it in a bit).

It's warm, but not as warm as the Merrell Ellenwood insulated and a Berghaus version that I tried - but I found the hood on the Merrell was way too big for my pea head! The Ikoku hood is smaller and also adjustable at back and sides.

Hope this helps! Overall I'm really pleased with it.

Thanks very much soppymoo....I have now realised there are two versions of it, I guess one is last year's. not sure which to get...only £75 for the cheaper one compared with £130!

Wow. I just called Craghoppers directly to ask why there are two versions of the Ikoku, wondering if one was last year's or even a fake and apparently the photograph they have on their website is incorrect...there is only one version with the fleece lined hood and the log embroidered rather than a metal tab. The picture they have used for the dark khaki is from an earlier prototype. In case anyone else is wondering! Also they offer a price match for any website other than amazon or ebay. Worth calling then!
