Rated 5 out of 5┬áby aetherbound Grown-up Lindsay Weir
This jacket is the first thing in a while that I've bought and loved from Anthropologie, and I have been wearing it most days since picking it up. In contrast with another reviewer, I actually sized up in this jacket (I bought this in a regular S, but I'm 5'1'' and normally petite XXS/XS). It was the only size left in the store, but I'm glad that turned out to be the case because I might not have tried sizing up otherwise. Like most army-style jackets, this one really looks best looser, not fitted tightly to the body. Since it's not lined, being able to layer a sweater of decent thickness will be useful in wearing this jacket through winter in the northwest. As I'm short, I often cuff the sleeves once so that they end just at the wrist -- uncuffed, they reach my knuckles.
The camo print is subtle in person, making the jacket more of a neutral with an interesting detail than a costume-y piece. The silhouette is clean and neat, without any excessive decoration. I do wish it were lined, but the quality otherwise seems fine.
If you don't already have a similar style of jacket, this one's a great contender. My current uniform consists of mid-calf lace-up boots and skinny jeans with a nubby, textured sweater and this jacket on top. Throw on one or two layered necklaces and only minimal earrings/rings/other jewelry for the best balance of delicate and rugged.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby seouljai wish they had more petite options in the store
I tried on this jacket in XS and it was much too large through the shoulders, length of sleeves and in overall width. I am 5'4" and about 115#. It was too large even with two layers under it. If they had more petite offerings in the store I would have loved to have tried it in petite. I liked everything else about it though.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby tulip1 Sleeves too short for me!
The jacket is great in construction and style, however, the sleeves were much too short. I am 6'1", so it's rare when a regular jacket's sleeves are long enough, but the waist lined up correctly. Just I wanted to let all you tall ladies know! Maybe if you intend to roll the sleeves up...
