Madewell x Penfield® Kasson Jacket in True Black

Madewell x Penfield® Kasson Jacket in True Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Narrow through the hips, but great quality This is the perfect cold rain jacket - keeps me warm and dry. It's a bit small in the hips - I typically wear a M or L in Madewell, am 5'4" and 160 lbs. I needed an XL in this but can fit a few layers underneath or have a cute boxy fit. My husband is jealous that he can't get one in his size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pockets Everywhere! I bought this jacket in preparation for my New York move, and so far it's lived up to the below 30 temps! Roomy enough to layer with a sweater/denim vest combo. My only complaint was that I hated opening the velcro pockets to stick my hands inside until I realized that it has normal front pockets as well. All in all, my new favourite winter jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket, true to size I ordered a size Large based on reviews and ended up returning for a Medium (which is my actual size) so I think this does run true to size, unless you plan on wearing very bulky layers underneath. My hips are on the wider side according to the size chart so I was worried, but it fits great, even with a sweater or fleece. The size Large by comparison looked like a men's ski jacket, not a flattering or stylish look. I love all the pockets, the fit, the overall style. The only thing I don't like is that the hood isn't adjustable, so it's too big for my head and gets in my eyes. Definitely appropriate for 3 seasons if you layer; I wore this out in 3 degree weather yesterday with a wool sweater and felt completely comfortable. Still haven't figured out what that zip pocket on the back is for, though! ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp all purpose coat, but beware hips Disclosure: my closet is almost entirely Madewell. Love this jacket - the Black is actually my second version. I bought in Beige a few years ago. My only caution is that the jacket runs very narrow in the hips. I am 5'5 135, and run between a small & medium. I bought the beige in a small and while it fits perfectly most places and I wear it on sunny fall days, it's very difficult to zip over the hips. I decided to go for the Medium in Black this time, and I love it. It's a little oversize, but I'm in Seattle and with all the rain I'd rather a looser fit that zips over curves! If you have curvy hips and are between sizes, I would opt for the larger size of the two you're between. Definitely go for it. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Throw it on and fuggetaboutit this is my grab and go jacket to keep me warm and also hold against drizzle/rain. I love the flannel inside, it creates enough insulation to keep warm. Get a size larger than ur usual or this wont fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect year round jacket! I’ve been eyeing Penfield jackets for some time. Though I’ve seen the Kasson in other stores, the lining was different at Madewell which I loved. I’m 5’2/120 lbs and the XS fit PERFECTLY! I’ve received many compliments for the look and fit. This is my 3rd outerwear purchase from Madewell and again, I am completely satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super cute & simple detailing I was so excited to purchase this jacket from Madewell - I had been looking at penfield jackets for awhile now but I absolutely fell in love with the simple black plaid print on the inside of this jacket. In terms of sizing, I would say that all penfield jackets fit a bit smaller. I am 5'2" and have a pretty petite frame, but I usually wear my jackets a bit bigger so that I can layer sweaters and flannels underneath. I purchased this jacket in a medium and I absolutely love the sizing - enables me to layer and I definitely have room to grow into it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile staple I've always wanted a Penfield jacket, and I am so glad I was able to get this one on sale! The flannel lining looks great, and the shell will keep me warm on rainy days. Have yet to test this outside because it's definitely not suited for below zero weather, but excited to finally replace my old rain jacket. Fits true to size in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute & cozy rain jacket! It's hard to find a cute rain jacket. I was tempted last year to buy this jacket but it had red buffalo check liner instead of this year's grey and was afraid it might not be versatile enough. I'm so glad I bought this year's version-I love it! I am 5'3, 106 lbs. and bought an XS, which fit perfectly. If I was taller, I could see the bottom of the jacket being too narrow and the sleeves being too short. However, on my petite frame, the bottom the jacket hits just below the curve of my butt and the sleeves are JUST long enough that I can cuff them to show of the lining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS JACKET I bought this jacket on sale, as I thought it was a great deal and love Penfield products. Fell right in love. I usually wear a L, as I have broad shoulders and larger chest. Got the XL, as some folks said it ran snug. The XL was slightly snug with a sweater underneath, but not enough to send back. It is super well made - quality is top notch. Big fan of the buffalo check lining, which is also inside the hood - nice touch! I'm straighter in the hips, so didn't have the issue other reviewers mentioned, but I could see how it could be a problem for others. I've had a little bit of trouble with the zipper - I'll look at that more closely to see if it's an easy fix. This jacket is a classic that will never go out of style and it's built so well that you'll have it for ages. Great buy!
