Customer questions and answers for AVALANCHE Avalanche Women's Katmai Jacket

Question

How accurate is the sizing?

Size chart says I'm a M (8-10). I'm a solid size 6 and mostly S (rarely M) in all other brands of outdoor and indoor clothes. Haven't bought women's clothes from Cabela before. How accurate are the size charts?

I always order a size up, but I like to be able to layer my clothes. I would still go for the medium.

I'm a solid 6 too, but have longish arms as I am taller. I like the fit of the M, as it is not too tight, but still snug. The arm length fits nice. I can layer a couple of shirts underneath (basic cotton) and not feel too tight. I think it is accurate sizing as I measured myself before purchasing.

I am a size 4 and I ordered the jacket in a medium and it fits perfectly. I would have to say that the jacket runs small.

I believe it depends on how snug you like your jackets...coats etc to be...if you like things to be more "girly" fit...then get the small....if you are looking for just a bit "looser..comfy" fit..then I would get the medium....Cabela's brands seem to run on the "true to size/larger size"...but other brands that they sell tend to size differently...this jacket seemed to run on the small size when I got it...I don't think you can go wrong getting the medium...

answer 2
It is single thickness, but the inside is the same furry texture as the outside making it very warm and soft. The zippered pockets are made of a smooth polyester-type material (inside the coat).

It is somewhat matted after 3 washes. I've gentle washed it in cold water and line dried. However, I have used fabric softener with it, and the directions suggest against it. This may have contributed to the matting.

It doesn't seem to lose fibers however I have only had it for two days. I washed it upon receiving it and it washed well, it says not to dry in dryer but I put it in on delicate and it was fine; not matting or piling.
