I love this coat! First of all it is adorable. Second, it is perhaps the best waterproof layer I have ever owned. I live in Laramie, Wyoming - elevation 7200 feet, wind gusts easily up to 75 mph, snow like crazy, and it protects me from the elements over a fleece or sweater even at -25 degrees. Alone it is light but perfect for a chilly, rainy day. Over the appropriate gear it does a surprisingly nice job (considering the light weight) of keeping me warm. I highly recommend it.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
Great looking coat-warm too!
February 12, 2009
I bought this coat in the Auburn color in a medium. I am a size 8 and it fits just right. I really think it is warm and definitely wind/water repellent. You can wear it dressed up or down. My only issue is that the sleeves are long. Otherwise awesome coat.
Cool look, poor fit

I love the Furlong jacket. It looks very nice on a thin woman. I have a fuller figure and when I put this on, I looked like the michelin man. I'm returning it.
mmm, yummy coat!
May 14, 2009
Love it so much I almost wish it was December. Glad I'm going on an Alaskan cruise soon! it's sure to get a few comments and envious stares. great shopping experience at Altrec!

It looks as nice on as in the web picture. My daughter wanted it for herself, but luckily it's not her size. As others have noted, sizes run a little small if you want to wear a thicker sweater under in the wintertime. The weather here turned warm the day I got the jacket, so I have not yet tested it outdoors, but I suspect that unless you're very active, it wouldn't be for really cold weather. I'm really happy with my jacket. In fact - I already longing for next winter!
great technical jacket
December 27, 2008
The jacket is great in every way except it is shorter than expected, almost too short. If it had another inch and a half the jacket would be perfect.
January 12, 2011
The hood is a very nice feature on this attractive - active style jacket. Size runs true to size where a medium fits an average size body. Jacket is not short in the body like NorthFace tends to run. Haven't worn it much, since I just received, but first impression is that it is comfortable.
Cute and Functional

I love this jacket. Not only is it warm and fairly weatherproof, it also looks great! The fur hood is my favorite part because it is makes the jacket super cozy. I also opted for the white one because I wanted to go for the snow bunny look :)
February 23, 2009
I love this jacket. I have finally found a jacket that is warm enough to wear skiing, snowshoeing or even riding the snowmobile. It is slimming and sheek. The hood is the best part and I received so many compliments on the color. It's not bulky and is so comfortable. Great pockets and super warm. I love it.

I wanted a jacket that would was good for the cold, but still looked nice. This jacket has a nice look and I can't wait to take it out on a cold winter day and see how warm it is.Pros: Build quality
Great style and function - great buy.

Love this jacket both for on and off the ski hill. The fit is great and the fur detail is very soft and looks wonderful. I love this jacket.
love this coat!
January 31, 2010
This coat is great. It is a perfect fit (I'm a very average medium) and it is lightweight enough for any activity. I would suggest something else if you're looking for heavy duty winter wear, but if you're like me and prefer to be cold rather than warm, this one is perfect.
cute, but snug
April 13, 2009
This jacket is so cute but it does fit a little on the snug side. The sleeves are particularly slim and it's kinda tight across the bust as well. If you want to wear more than a thin layer underneath, suggest larger size. I use it for spring skiing. I'm a size 8 and ordered the medium, I can wear a thin turtleneck underneath. Stayed warm in 40 degree breezes on the ski slopes of Colorado.
Stylish and functional
January 09, 2009
Bought this jacket as a xmas present for myself. Usually wear a small but didn't want to feel constricted. Jacket fit well although the arm length a bit long. Fur is so soft and the hood so inviting I have it up most of the time all snugged in- love the jacket.
December 05, 2009
The coat is warm and comfortable! I can wear it in just about any weather. The price was right too!
November 03, 2009
This is a great coat. The best part is the hood - perfect for Fall/Spring in Chicago. I would go up a size to wear a sweater underneath. I'm sick of having to wear large, puffy coats to be warm - this one is perfect - slim fitting & warm. I get lots of compliments too!
Luxurious and super comfortable!
November 20, 2012
I'm loving this jacket!! I was looking for a jacket that I could wear casually and still look great out to a nice dinner. This is the one! The hood is so, so soft and luxurious and the fit is super...not too loose and not too tight. I'm a 5'7", 175 lb big girl and the XL fits great...probably could wear a L, but I don't like a coat too tight on my broad shoulders.Pros: Great design, Performance
nice jacket, just prefer a different color
October 05, 2009
I like the weight of this shell and the styling ...I will have to return it only because I prefer the raven to the espresso and was not avail in first choice color here. Price was a bargain since it is $150 on most sites right now
very fitted,short,neat, luxurious hood. All year round wear.
May 06, 2009
Because the jacket is so fitted it is not suitable for layering up if the temperature gets colder. It is versatile and can be used all year in cities as well as outdoors.
January 18, 2010
This is a great coat! Warm when you're outside, lightweight enough for shopping and best of all, it's flattering! Order a size up if you plan on wearing something heavier underneath (sweater). I'm looking forward to getting another color as soon as available.
A great high-tech,but fashion savvy jacket for women.
February 10, 2010
After searching multiple sites I found that Altrec.com had the Marmot Furlong Jacket at the best price and range of colors. I purchased this jacket for my mother as a Christmas present and she loves it. It is a great high-tech, but fashion savvy, jacket for women.
Cute Form Fitting Jacket
October 28, 2009
This is a really cute jacket that's very form fitting so you can't wear thicker clothing under it. The jacket is a stretch material, I thought it would be more like a ski jacket. I looked on Marmot's web site for more info before purchasing it but it didn't say anything about the temperature rating. It was perfect for the football game I used it for, the temp was between 40 - 50 degrees. If it was any cooler out it would not have been warm enough & you can't really layer since it's a tighter fitting jacket. You probably can't ski in this unless it was a really warm, sunny day. Overall it's a stylish jacket that will be good for after skiing & around town.
March 24, 2011
Gorgeous jacket. Loved it so much purchased another in different color. Material is high quality and feels silky yet with stretch. The fur on the hood super cute and soft. Fit a bot small for heavy layering but perfect for Spring.Pros: Great design
December 26, 2009
I LOVE this jacket. Great style and fit. You won't regret the purchase.
Great jacket for a great price
December 24, 2008
This jacket is very flattering and stylish, and the faux fur is like a built in scarf! I think it runs a bit small. I am a size 8 and the large fits just right with a t-shirt underneath, so if you want to wear a sweater underneath be sure to go a size up. I'll feel silly if I find it, but I don't think there is an "inside zip pocket" as in the description.
May 22, 2009
This jacket looks great on. I get compliments frequently. It does run small so definitely needed to size up. The brown is very nice against the faux fur. It is perfect for dressing up in my casual mtn. town.
April 01, 2009
I just got the jacket and have worn it only twice so far, but immediately started getting compliments on it (got the Auburn in a medium). I live in Vermont, where you still need a good wind and water-repellent jacket in (what we call)spring, so this is perfect. It is keeping me warm and dry so that I don't have to wear my serious winter coat anymore. I am 5'4 and 125 pounds and the medium fits with a bit of room (plenty for a shirt or not-too-thick sweater). The sleeves are slightly too long, but not so long that it's a problem. I am confident that I will enjoy this jacket for a long time. The furry hood feels great on too...
March 21, 2010
Love this jacket. Very stylish and very practical. Highly recommend.
My favorite jacket
December 14, 2010
I love this jacket. The fit, style and warmth are all top notch. I love the fur lined hood and collar and the ease of which the hood flops over. This is my go to jacket for any day that is between 35 - 50 degrees. It is my first Marmot jacket and the quality is evident every time I put in on.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
May 20, 2012
I adore this jacket. The tailoring is beautiful and the fur is so soft! I am 5'3", 110lbs, and the xs fits perfectly with some room still for layering. This jacket is so versatile, and stylish, it makes rainy, windy days feel warm and not so gloomy.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
April 26, 2009
I bought this jacket after reading all the wonderful reviews, but as cute as it is, the fur-lined hood is too heavy hanging behind my neck when not in use. I'm 5ft 92lbs and got the XS, but it was too loose on the upper back when I tried to wear it over a thin sweater. I had to return it :-(
I Love It!!
November 17, 2009
I am so happy I bought this coat. It is so Beautiful, Fun, and Warm. I get compliments on it everywhere I go. I also got the vest and just LOVE Them.. If you buy this you can't go wrong, Warmth and style in one coat.
Women's Furlong Jacket by Marmot
March 10, 2010
LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket!!!!!!!! I now have in two colors...perfect! Cozy without being too bulky...fitted and flattering! I ordered by the size chart and did well. The M fits a 5'7" medium build perfectly. The S fit, but did not leave room for layers and since the jacket isn't thick...ya need a little room. Best part is that even with the room it is slim and attractive:)
Cute but short
September 24, 2009
This is a very cute jacket. I am a size XS in pretty much everything and I can wear an XS in this one, but not with a thick sweater (I don't wear thick sweaters though so that's fine with me). The jacket is very, very short though, which is odd for an "outdoor" brand. For this reason I would not wear this for hiking or any outdoor activity where you want your hips/bum to be warm. Cute for urban wear but that's about it.
March 27, 2012
I just got my dark olive and I so love it. Its warm, and high quality. I'm 4-11 and 90 lbs and the xs is just perfect. Finally I found a jacket of petites. I usually buy xs Mountain Hardwear. Patagonia xs is still too big for me, I returned th ultralight down jacket. Now I can get Marmot.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
March 26, 2010
Firstly, it fits me perfectly. I like it as a stylish and fashionable jacket. The collar's style is my most favorite. But the Water Repellent feature is not very well.
December 17, 2009
I am very impressed with the Furlong coat. It is just the right weight. May need a size up if you are going to put a bulky sweater underneath. Very nice looking jacket.
Love this jacket!
October 14, 2011
I love this jacket so much that I bought another in a different color! I wear a large top and it fits true to size. The fabric is durable enough to wear with a pack, but it still feels soft. The faux fur around the hood is really cute, too. I always get compliments on it!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever
READ SIZE CHART CAREFULLY!
February 13, 2013
I got fooled by the size chart- there is one section called "women's and unisex" but the unisex was listed first, so I ordered the wrong size and now they are all out of the size I should have ordered in the first place! Bummer! It is a beautiful jacket, the fur is especially nice and the hood is actually a very functional size and shape (why can't most companies get with this??) I would prefer a slightly slippery-er lining so it would glide more smoothely over sweaters, that's the only slight down side. It's a beautiful jacket, too bad I got the wrong size!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: size chart misleading
Exactly what my Wife was looking for
October 13, 2009
The fit is good, the style is exceptional, the warmth is great!
Expectations Greatly Surpassed!
January 28, 2012
Previous reviews were most accurate: -Went one size up to Medium and it really fits like size 4-6 with room for the girls, layering, yet still beautifully trim over the hips. -Absolutely drop dead gorgeous on; fur-lined hood frames the face, up or down. -Adequate sleeve length for the long-limbed (5'9" 130lbs) -The dark olive shade is perfectly classic, way better than the online pic of the color. -Marmot's M2 soft-shell technology provides more than adequate warmth without bulk. -Could not be more pleased; thank you Marmot & Altrec! -Did I mention it's on sale?Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, looks like a million bucks!
