I may be the only 4-season climate YLFer without a long puffer. This Eddie Bauer Sun Valley parka is rated their second warmest and comes in petite sizes which I need with my short waist and arms. It is currently on sale and looks like they just restocked some sizes and colors. I really like the color (Atlantic - a touch greener blue than my photo shows, vs Navy) and the exterior chest zip pocket which fits my phone. Not crazy about the sleeve pocket, but I can live with it (it is not looking removable).

The shoulders/chest fit with room for layering. It passed the car drive test. The waist and hips are a bit large, as I am a size or two smaller in pants than tops. I don't think it is alterable on the side seams without messing up the warmth.

Thoughts? Any suggestions for petite sizing, functional but attractive, long puffers that run narrower in the bottom but not the top.
