Women's Essential Down Parka
I am 50kgs and 157cm tall. I bought the XS petite and it fits perfectly. It also looks great. I'm very happy with the quality. Can't wait for winter to come!

I love this parka! Got it on sale in the brown since colors were limited in my size. Beautiful color. Soft smooth exterior. Lightweight and toasty warm. I really like the gathered waist--My husband says it adds a feminine touch. Great hood. Soft, fleecy pockets. I bought medium and it's true to size. What's not to like? I say this is a major bargain and don't hesitate to scoop it up!

Buy it - but don't size up!
LOVE it! I am wildly bummed that I bought it in the wrong size, though. I am 5'9" and wear a size 10 or 12. I bought a large and I should NOT have. Definitely needed a medium. So, learn from my mistake!
Also, as a NYer, I was very hesitant to buy anything that wasn't black (true), but the mahogany is really really lovely. def better than black.

Whatever possessed me?
I ordered the Washed Berry in this jacket.
The color looks more magenta on my monitor than up close and personal: which is a very bright hot pink-
and makes me feel like a little kid in a snowsuit.
I wanted to brighten up my drab olives-but the color is overkill.
While I may be considered a PXS at 5'2" and 104 lbs, the Misses XS fits just right with plenty of room for 3 sweaters underneath (lightweight turtleneck, lightweight cardigan and mid-weight cardigan.)
Other than the Dubble Bubble Pink, (argh) I think I would have liked this jacket.

The perfect down coat
I've been looking for a replacement for my old down parka for some time and was so happy when this arrived and found it to be beyond my expectations! The fit is perfect- M as I am a size 10, it is WARM but lightweight, not too bulky, and the pockets are deep. I love the 2-way zipper, detachable hood and inside pocket. Perfect for the cold, snowy weather we are having in N. Arizona these days!

Great jacket for the price!!
I am 5'2" and 150 lbs with a large bust, so petite is not always the right choice. I'm glad I ordered the Medium Regular, as it fits quite well. The sleeve is a teeny bit long, but with gloves on, they look fine.
I like the fact that there's an internal draw string that gives you a bit of waistline. Some other reviewers thought it was too high and had an empire wist effect. I think If i had ordered petite I would have had that same issue. I got it it in basic classic black and removed the hood ( it's kinda big). BTW, this coat is super warm and with another 25% off it's a steal.

Great fit and worth the price
I am a size 8 and the small fit perfectly. The waist is slightly high but still looks fine. Very warm and lightweight. I would recommend.

I bought this coat because of the attractive price. Unfortunately the red color is sold out and have to pick a black. I cannot say it's pretty but really warm and comfortable for me in winter. It's a little bit big so I have room for adding one more sweater (I ordered regular M, normally wearing size 10). I like the pocket, collar and hood, and the length of sleeves is perfect for me.

Fit was weird
Fit was weird for this parka. I ordered a Petite Medium which should have fit fine as I am normally a clothing size 8 or 10 but this parka was way too tight. It would not have been flattering with the staying being cinched in at the waist either.
I actually ordered three different Lands End jackets/ coats and discovered sizing inconsistencies with them all. This seems to have become a problem with Lands End across the board recently. I keep ordering and returning and it's due to sizing irregularity. I've noticed that several reviewers have also noted this as a problem. Fortunately, I'm able to return these to the nearby Sears store.
