I bought this as an alternative to my heavy/hot Pikeur dressage coat for summer shows. It arrived balled up in the box but I hung it in the bathroom and and ran hot shower to steam wrinkles out. Once you put it on the cut and features make it look as nice as a higher end coat. Fit is true to the size chart but I found it big in the shoulders. Its a new purchase so I can't comment on durability but I can see the mesh lining going first-it kept getting hung up on my watch and glove velcro. Happy with the purchase and its great for warmer weather.
