Rated 5 out of 5 by macha Ten Year Coat!
I just got this coat in the mail. I am five feet six inches tall and one hundred and twenty four pounds. I ordered the size 2 in petite and I think it fits perfectly! The sleeves are just past my wrists and there is room in the coat for me to wear a light or medium weight sweater. It hits a little above mid-thigh, but I have a very long torso and very very short legs. The inside is a beautiful satiny fabric so it slides on and off really nicely. I hope this helps with anyone deciding what size to wear!

Let me start off with the positive--they changed the pockets! Thank you, J.Crew! The positioning makes a huge difference and these are functional.
Still, I don't seem to have much luck with the coat. I'm just shy of 5'10", so I generally order Tall sizes because I need a longer sleeve. I totally missed the fact they've added about three inches to the length of the coat and an inch to the sleeve in regular sizes, so when I ordered the Tall it was waaaaay too long in the body. The length last year was so much better!
My other gripe is the color. I ordered the coat in Neon Electric Flame--the gorgeous color I guess I wrongly assumed the model was wearing(??)--and was so surprised by the actual color I double-checked the tags on it to make sure that I hadn't been sent Heather Tigerlily instead since it looks much closer to that shade. The model photo shows it to have cooler undertones than it actually does. Bummer all around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LA86 Gorgeous Coat but LONG!!
Last year the grey cocoon coat sold out before I could buy it. I ordered the coat this year as soon as I saw it online. The coat is beautiful and well made, as are all J.Crew wool coats. I love that J.Crew finally put slant pockets on the coat this year. But, and it is a big but, this coat is waaay longer this year. So long that I had to return it. The length of last year's version was perfect. I am 5'8 and the coat comes almost to my knees. This longer length completely changes the aesthetic of the coat and it is not the same coat that I have been dreaming about all year. The old cocoon was the perfect middle ground in length between a traditional pea coat and the lady day coats. I hope that J.Crew has shorter coats in their next rollout.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fatims Wanted to love it....
I really really wanted to love this coat, but unfortunately it was way too long and looked way too boxy on me...I am 5'2 and I would definitely not recommend this coat to somebody who is petite. It looks really nice on the model, but unfortunately not on me. Had to return it :( such a bummer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JustG Love the updated coat
I personally love the longer length. Im 5 foot 6 and comes just above my knees. Very well made. Im usually between 0-2 and got a 0 and fits perfectly. If you want a more oversized look stick with your regular size. The only reason I took one star off is because I have skinny arms and feel the sleeves could be wider to fit warmer sweaters underneath. But then again it gets to minus 30 Celsius where I live and this may not be a problem for others.
