I received my down liner the other day and was impressed by how well it fit me and inside my coat. My only complaint about the Storm Parka was that the sleeves are lined with cotton. But, adding the down liner solves that problem...

how much bulk does the liner add? my sleeves are already tight.

I dont understand why they add lining at sleeves on every style

Not a lot. The down liner is relatively thin, and the down compresses well where it needs to. I was also surprised by how slim the arms are in general, but I have slim arms...

my jacket is pretty small now with the liner

I've had my field jacket over a month now, and it's been worn in some pretty severe weather conditions. Here's a little review so far:

 

The general fit of the jacket has improved the longer I've worn it, it fits me well now, so I guess Ten C's claim it "molds to your body" rings true. 

 

I wore it in an absolute downpour, when I was walking to the football. 15 minutes of none stop, violent rain soaked the jacket completely. I was dry underneath, which is the main thing, but the jacket did absorb water. It soon dried off, and I'm convinced the soaking helped it mold to my body shape. Water doesn't bounce off constantly like some full weatherproof jackets, or even Elka/Rains type macs, but it keeps you dry underneath, which is enough for me. 

 

The Velcro was the biggest problem I had with the jacket. I like to have my cuffs nice and tight, and with the fabric being so heavy, the relatively weak Velcro was not up to the job. It was constantly popping open, which was really annoying. I solved the problem by stitching up the cuffs. They're no longer adjustable, but that's not a problem for me as my hands slide in and out easily enough. When wearing gloves, I have to put my gloves on first then feed my arms through the sleeves, but this isn't a problem. Obviously, the glove flaps aren't usable either, but I don't like the look of them anyway. 

 

In terms of the fit, if you want the jacket to fit nicely without a liner, you won't be able to use a liner with it come winter. By that I mean the liner makes the jacket a lot tighter. I tried a liner on with my size 50 field jacket and it made it feel at least a whole size smaller. My size 50 looks good with just a T-shirt, but I can get away with wearing it with a chunky knit underneath, making it suitable for a British winter. 

 

All in all I'm happy with the jacket, and recommend Ten-C jackets to be a sound investment.

 

All in all, I still love the jacket, and paired with a nice chunky knit, it

If you're even slightly bulky, be it muscle or fat, I find the liner makes the jacket a lot tighter across the chest and on the arms. If you're a slim Jim, you might be okay.
