        Great jacket

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Jacket:

        I got this in High Rise Gray, a nice silvery color. I like that it has no hood so I can wear it under a shell or other jacket, or even as a down sweater. It's a flattering style, very warm for its light weight, and the water resistant DownTek is a big plus. One or two pieces of darker down sometimes show through the fabric; one was in the front but fluffing that area made it disappear, at least for now. I like the color and have seen much worse in other well-known brand down jackets with pale fabric, so this doesn't bother me. I agree with the prior review that the sleeves, at least in my XS, are about 3/4 to 1" too long. I'm 5'4" with normal arm length and the sleeve ends puff down and hang over the spandex binding at the wrist. It's not bad and is wearable for me, but I'd have preferred the same sleeve length as last year's Meridian (same jacket, different name) that I also have, which has just-right sleeves. EMS's price (on sale or even not) is excellent for this quality jacket. If the sleeves were a bit shorter I'd rate it 5 stars.

              Love this jacket. I researched 800-fill jacket from several online and retailers and tried a couple of them before I settled on the EMS jacket. It is warm and has a nice fit around the wait. Love the purple color.

                I love this coat! Even better was the price!! I had compared other brands that will go un-named in this review, and you can't tell the difference-except for the missing logo on the front. I ordered my regular size and the fit though the whole body runs true to size. It falls well at the hips and has the drop hem in the back that is flattering and stylish. I had read other reviews that said the seams that shape the body of the jacket stuck out funny or that it looked too big in the upper arms. I'm narrow through the shoulders and small in the chest and I found the fit true to size and it looks great. I would agree that the arm length is long but I usually have a little trouble with finding sleeves long enough in a size small, so it's perfect for me. If you have short arms, it's probably not the coat for you. The silver is sharp looking, especially with a bright scarf!

                          I got this jacket in the Gloxinia color, size M. I am 5'7" with a long torso, broad shoulders, and long arms. When I put the jacket on, it felt like it was made for me and I have received complements on it from people I hardly even know. It fits extremely well and provides excellent movement in the shoulder area where I usually have problems with jackets. It is roomy in the hip area, not tight, but not bulky either, and I have fairly wide hips. Yes, the sleeves are very very long, even just a hare too long for me which almost never happens. But I find that with the elastic around the wrist I can wear it any way I like, and I find that I even wear fewer gloves now because I just tuck my hands into the sleeves. Just like the down on a real bird, it almost feels like the jacket adjusts to my temperature needs. I can wear it indoors and not feel too warm and I can wear it with a few layers (it layers extremely well) in 14 degrees with cold 20mph winds. All in all, I am extremely happy with the jacket.

                                Great coat for a great price! It's warm, light weight and true to size. It fits nicely, close to the body without being too tight or too loose. The sleeves are wide enough to allow free range of motion. Yes, they are a bit long. I am 5'9" and the sleeves are about an inch longer than what I'd like them to be but not a deal breaker for me. The coat is longer than other similar coats I tried. XL is 28 inches long in the back. Black is a little shiny but again not a deal breaker for me. This coat does not shed feathers. I wore it with a black top and had a couple of tiny feathers on my arms and nothing on my back. I thought that was great. Anyway, this is my first puchase at EMS and I am very pleased so far.

                                Researched and tried on several different brands in several different stores and decided on this jacket. However, after getting it home I have decided to return it for several reasons. The sleeves are too long and the elastic is fairly loose. The seams down the back, while meant to flatter, stick out at an odd angle. It fits well all over (other than too long sleeve) but the upper arms seem bulky and there is too much room under the arms, making the top of the jacket appear out of proportion to the rest. Too bad because the colors are beautiful.

                                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Jacket:

                                I bought this jacket a few weeks ago in the Gloxinia (purple) color, and the first day I wore it received multiple compliments (even from non-outdoorsy friends). I do LOVE the color, and it's fashionable factor is an added bonus, but that's far from the best thing about this jacket. I's very warm, but not heavy or bulky in the slightest, and I love that it can fold into one of it's pockets. I usually wear it with a light sweatshirt underneath and I've been comfortable in temps down to the low 30s (I imagine it will be warm in even colder temps as well, but I haven't experienced this yet). I've tested the jacket in rain as well and it does a great job of wicking away the moisture. It doesn't make me sweat when I wear it indoors either...I almost feel like it just adjusts itself to my needs!
                                I have long arms, but this is the perfect length for me. It doesn't ride up if I lift my arms either. If I had to choose my favorite thing about this jacket it would have to be that when I zip it up all the way it has a soft chin guard that is very comfortable and keeps me warm enough that I don't need a scarf, while still looking very stylish (and that EMS is looking out for those of us with nickel allergies by using non-metal zippers/zipper-pulls).

                                      First, this coat is a fabulous buy. The down is quality; the shapely fit is excellent. It's not too bulky, and the fabric/stitching is fantastic to (seemingly) prevent tears or down from coming out. I really, really wanted to keep the jacket but for the sleeves: I wear an XS in all EMS brand and have never had a problem with sleeve length. But this is rediculous! Another reviewer (on the hooded version) liked the sleeves long, but really, even though the elastic nicely keeps it in place around your wrists when you push the sleeves up, you're stuck with massive hanging biceps full of fluff. The down and fabric gets stuck under my armpits. I realize that the arms should be long enough for when you lift your arms, but this is plain strange. I don't have short arms, so I see this as a design flaw stylistically.
