I have tried it on and as I am fairly short, it is longer on me than in the picture, the colour is also a but darker irl.

I've been searching for a quilted but lightweight coat, not too puffy. What do you think?

I like it. I like the way it's quite fitted - lots of those sort of coats are too shapeless. Maybe a bit shiney for me but if it's not too shiney for you then go for it!

Not sure about the shinyness but if does have drawstrings inside to give it a defined waist. Thanks for the vote!

I Don't like it I think it looks like its come off the market stall on Eastenders, sorry.

'orrible. Looks like a bin bag.

Not keen sorry

Reminds me of one of those covers that used to be on boilers in the airing cupboard. Sorry

Not keen on the colour or shinyness of it - have you looked at Uniqlo?

Ghoulelocks Fri 09-Nov-12 20:05:56

If it's the style you like costco had a lovely non-shiney version with a fake fur hood in a range of colours. Very very nice and better quality look to it. Half the price too.

omletta - grin

I quite like the colour but not the shinyness. It does look cosy though.

pictish Fri 09-Nov-12 20:08:53

Too shiney! It's all 'wet look'.

Joules Moredale jacket is lovely and warm

Dexter73 I like the Uniqlo A-line down coat but it looks a bit too 'puffy' - what is their sizing generally like?

Thanks for the other comments and suggestions

I had a dark green Uniqlo coat like that.

DH told me I looked like a walking sleeping bag.

I lost the coat. So, if any of you have one hanging in your hall from when I came round 3 years ago.....

Too shiny - looks cheap.

I like the fitted style though.

dexter73 Fri 09-Nov-12 21:44:05

Sizing for coats is fairly true to size.

buttercrumble Fri 09-Nov-12 21:44:32

Sorry , dont like it.........

BrianAndHisBalls Fri 09-Nov-12 21:46:17

looks like something bianca off eastenders would wear, sorry

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Fri 09-Nov-12 21:55:35

Oh dear. No - it's hideous: really, really horrible.

Sorry but it is one of the nastiest looking things I have ever seen on the M&S site - and that is saying something.

lovethesun1 Fri 09-Nov-12 22:00:00

Sorry not a fan - too shiney, odd colour, bit too 'bianca' for me too!

whatagreatname Fri 09-Nov-12 22:05:48

I feel I have to defend the coat a bit grin

The colour irl is lovely
Its really lightweight but feels warm

However, it is very shiny but doesn't look cheap (imo)

dexter73 Fri 09-Nov-12 22:14:35

If you like it then buy it and don't listen to us!

whatagreatname Fri 09-Nov-12 22:34:11

All valid responses - just felt a bit sorry for it

Really undecided - thanks everyone! confused
