Penfield® Vassan Jacket

Penfield® Vassan Jacket is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classy Jacket I got this jacket in the mail today. I ordered the Navy color and I think it's beautiful and classy, and will go with everything forever. I am 5"4' 125lbs and ordered a Medium (usually I would be a medium in any Madewell coat or sweater as I like a little room to breathe) but this runs pretty small! It is very form-fitting and looks great without a sweater, but with a sweater underneath it looks a little silly. Also, the zippers are really hard to work, but the buttons are a nice way to go. I love all the pockets (there are pockets within some of the pockets)! I can't decide if I should exchange for a Large, but that seems extreme since I am never a large. I think I will keep it because it's a beautiful jacket that will last forever, but keep in mind it fits tight when ordering. Overall, recommend for the style and quality (minus zipper)!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sturdy with a terrible zipper. I bought this jacket the first time and returned it because the zipper didn't work. I bought a small which was tight around the hip area. So when I re-ordered it, I ordered a medium. I received my second jacket which was a more comfortable size. And while the zipper on the new jacket works, occasionally, it is still extremely annoying. Life--and jackets--shouldn't be this difficult.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the usual Penfield jacket This is a much much thinner jacket than the usual Penfield Kasson jackets. It looks more or less the same but the dry-wax does feel different. Like another reviewer said, the zipper is terrible, and I could not for the life of me zip it up. I'm going to be returning this since I live in Chicago and need a thicker jacket for spring and fall.
