Essential Quilted Coat is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK, I love it. I'm 5'4', 125 lbs, and the 12 is a comfortable fit with room for a light layer under it, and not too long (for a change). Warmer than I expected, and fine in most rain. Good pockets, cozy collar, love the grey/blue color -- this is a great coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great length, and not bulky. I’m glad I went for this coat when it went on sale. I like the length, and the fact that it is not too bulky, while still being warm. I’m 5’6”, and 150# and the size 8 is perfect for me. Not too tight, with a little roominess to spare. I will get a lot of use out of this coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I was looking for a waterproof jacket that was lightweight and loose fitting to accommodate a warm sweater underneath on cooler days. I am very happy with this one -the color is pleasing and the jacket is long enough to cover even a longer winter sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmth Without the Bulk I have been looking for a mid weight car coat without bulk. The "Essential Quilted Coat" is just right. It adds both the warmth and comfort I need for doing errands as the months transition from fall to winter. I do like a hood option, which this coat also has. Color choice is good--I chose the Blue Smoke as I wear a lot of denim. For reference, I am typically a 4, size small in Garnet Hill tops, but like the fit of the size 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOOVE this coat! The reviews said the coat ran large so I bought it in a size smaller than my usual. However, it was small so I returned it and bought my normal size. I absolutely love this coat! The mid-denim color goes with all my wardrobe. It’s midweight which is perfect for my California coast life. I was afraid it would make me look heavy but that isn’t the case at all. It’s very becoming and I expect to have it for many, many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful fall/mild winter jacket! So happy with this jacket! The weight, quality, length, deep zippered pockets and detachable hood are all pluses. Wonderful if you are on the move walking to work or school with a pack pack! Roomy, but not bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat I love this jacket. I got it in burgundy to match some booties I purchased this fall. It is very warm with a sweater underneath for colder temps (30-40s). Good wind breaker but it isn’t waterproof. I got wet when wearing it in an unexpected downpour recently. I love the length, cut and zipped pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine transition coat. More polished than a windbreaker. I bought a size 2. I am 5‘3“ 113 pounds. The coat has enough room for sweater underneath. Shoulders strike me as a little bit narrow in proportion to the rest, but still ok. Hood is just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best When I ordered the coat this year in black, I didn’t realize that it was the same coat that I bought in brown, and LOVED, last year. Roomy enough for a light sweater under without causing a tight fit in arms. Perfect weight for winters in the 40’s

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat! I just love this coat. First of all, I wear a petite size, so I was a little disappointed that this coat didn’t come in a petite. I took a chance and ordered a regular small size. I am so happy I did! The sleeves are long but I just fold them up one time and they look fine. I got the red cranberry color and it’s so pretty. The coat is lightweight and could be worn all year round but, it is so warm! The quality of the material is superb. I thought it was expensive but I waited until there was a sale. I am so glad I bought it and know it will be keep me warm for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Autumn Coat This coat is even better than I expected. The style and color are as described with the added positives of being softer than many quilted coats that seem stiff enough to stand up on the floor on their own. Its shape is streamlined, yet on the very cold Maine days last week, there was plenty of room for a bulky sweater under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I have been looking for THis is a perfect coat for fall days. It is light weight and great for layering. It has the essential hood and can weather rain storms. It has everything I have been looking for including a good color choice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and a great spring coat Great spring layer. Color blue is a bit less vibrant than the picture but is still nice with jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't know how much I would use it. I lost my favorite "go to" jacket just before I was preparing to go to Oregon for a week's visit. I ordered this instead thinking it would be nice looking and lighter weight than my standard PCOAT. That ended up being quite true but what was really great about this jacket was the length. Being a bit longer than y standar heavy sweater or jackets made an enormous difference. it kept me warmer and made me look more "dressed"! Great jacket. great weight and the blue is a divine color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Quilted Coat This is my “go to” coat for every day......I can wear it over a sweater when the temps are really cold or just over a T-shirt when I need to break the wind or when the night chills down. Love that it’s washable too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well The Coat is just right for when the weather is not too cold. Especially great when riding in the car, very comfortable and love the zippered pockets. Coat runs slightly smaller in the shoulders for myself so had to return and get next size up. But, other then that love this purchase and got it in two colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fall/spring jacket The jacket fits nicely. It's a good length. The hood is removable which is a plus. The only only reason I didn't give it five stars was lack of a two way zipper.
Date published: 2021-01-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the coat ...but, the sleeves could be a little longer, and the zipper only goes one way (you can't unzip from bottom to leave closed for driving, you have to unzip all the way or bottom is too tight when sitting and pulls at zipper) Nice weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmth Without Bulk I ordered this lovely coat in an 18, since I have been wearing that size lately(I'm 5'11'' and 180 or so pounds). This coat, however, although perfect through the shoulders was too tight across the chest and hips. The sleeves also were two or three inches above where they needed to be. The fabric was soft and I liked the port color. The coat was simply cut too small for my frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect length This is a great coat for Fall (and probably Spring). I take long walks and I like the length reaching to mid thigh to keep me warmer. It's not quite warm enough, even layered with a sweater, for really cold winter days, but for warmer winter days, I think it will be fine. I bought the grey/blue and love it. I am usually a size 6 with broad shoulders. I bought the medium and glad I did—it gives me room for layering with a sweater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I love this coat! Beautiful color and lovely fit & features. Appreciate it not being bulky.. one recommendation though.. for that length would have loved the zipper to open from the bottom as well..a bit uncomfortable when driving.
Date published: 2020-12-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tight around bottom I love the color and the fabric. Not so happy that the coat is tight at the bottom when I sit down (e.g. in the car). Would have been better with a double zipper. Still love it for walking outside in the fall.
Date published: 2020-12-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feature Improvement It should have a duo zipper and zip up from the bottom too for better sitting comfort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Practical in all ways This is the 3rd, no 4th, version of this coat I've purchased from GH. The 1st, size 12, was knee length and lasted a LONG time; I wore it all the time in cool, damp, San Francisco weather, but eventually, the snaps gave out. The 2nd version was cut so narrowly, I gave it to my daughter, a size 8, who still wears it. The 3rd, size 12, billowed out unattractively, so I returned it for the 4th, a perfect size 10. It's mid-thigh length is fine for all the tunics I wear these days. The quality seems as good as the original, and the fit is becoming. I'm hopeful it lasts as long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty but stiff I just got it and haven't worn it yet. it's a very pretty slate blue. It's a little stiff, but i imagine it will soften in time.

Looking at the review on size, does this run standard to size? Neither of the reviews are helpful to know if I should order my normal 6 or possibly size down to a 4?

Asked by: Rebamo
This coat is running true to size. To choose the best fit for you, we suggest checking the coat's measurements. Click the "Fit & Garment Measurements" tab for this item on our web site to see all available sizing information.

I don't see the measurements section which is invaluable in deciding what size to order. Most women won't order a style unless there's enough information so we don't end up paying shipping both ways. How long are the sleeves & length on size 6? Thanks.

Asked by: Nalini20
The size 6 sleeve length is (measured from center back) 32.5". The length of the coat is 32.5".

Has this item been restyled somewhat from years past? I recall seeing advice then to size up as it ran small.

Asked by: GranM

I absolutely loved my essential car coat from last year, however the coat was very slender. I want to order another version this year but I need to know how a size 4 in this coat compares to last years version. 

Asked by: Anne14

Does this coat run true to size or should I order a size up?
