Women's f(x)? Down Jacket
Highest quality and fit
This is probably the best made coat I have ever had. What quality! The fabric is light but very sturdy, and the tailoring is fitted but not too tight. There are so many nice features, like an inside zipper pocket and open net pocket, and a zipper pocket on the sleeve. The cuffs are very nice too for keeping out the elements. It's easy to move in but not bulky. I will use this next season for skiing too. The hood is very nice, I wish it were detachable, but don't let that stop you from buying this jacket. It doesn't get in the way.

Sheds on the back of my sweater
I love the color, fit, and style. Warm enough for all but the coldest Minnesota winters. But...it sheds little feathers onto the back of my underlying sweater . It looks like I am moulting! Very difficult to get those tiny feathers and spines off of my sweaters. I don't like looking like I sat on a pet hair covered couch! Probably will take it back for a refund.

The jewel green is a wonderful colour and it is warm and comfortable.
I read the reviews and ordered one size up. I also ordered it in tall. Many people have complimented me on the colour and style. Normally, I would not order anything with a hood. However, I am becoming accustomed to it and can usually forget that it is there. Beautiful jacket.

WHAT I LIKE: I love the "snowdrift" color with bright pink lining. I really like all the extra pockets. The best thing is that there are thumb holes in the sleeves so they stay down and cover the gap when i put on gloves. The coat is really warm and cozy and good in the wind. I got this coat on a really good sale, I don't think I would pay full price for it.
DISLIKE: I assumed that it was all down, but the tag in the coat states that it is 80% down and 20% feathers. It has a slight chicken feather odor that I hope will wear off over time. Shipping took Longer that i had expected. I received it 1 week after I ordered it--so not too bad, but a little longer than planned.
SIZING: I am 5'8" and 130 lbs. slender build, not a large chest. I decided to order a size small after reading the other reviews that the sizes fit a little big. I am glad I did. Size Small fits great, the sleeves are the right length, even though I have really long arms.

Just call me Snow Bunny
That is what my husband called me when I tried on the f(x) coat in Snowdrift white. It is super cute. Living in Canada, and commuting in the city requires my coats to be warm, wind and water resistant, functional, and cute. LE has done it with this coat. The detailing is amazing. Snowdrift has a fuchsia liner, the zipper has extra colour detail, as well as the cord for the hood. My only wish was that the hood was removable as in several of my other LE coats. I'm 5'2", a little heavier, and the large was OK. I carry my weight around the middle, so maybe I could've gone up to XL, but then I worried about the fit on the rest of the coat. I also bought the longer coat in fuchsia and where it was tighter in the middle was a not issue, but the colour way too bright. Fun, but too bright for me. That one is being returned.

Perfect jacket! Easy to put on, warm, comfortable and full coverage!
I love this jacket! I have now bought 3! It is very warm, provides excellent coverage, especially the hood, and length to cover down to the upper thigh. I LOVE the snaps! As a horse back rider, it enables easy removal and no need to worry about the zipper while sitting on the horse--which will often split when wearing a below the waist jacket. Despite the warmth, it is an easy jacket to move in for all types of activities. I have bought a large, although I am usually a medium. It enables me to put an extra layer if necessary underneath.

Draw string in hood came out, fits very small
I'm super loyal to LE, but I've had to return a few things lately. I tried to cinch the hood in the back, and the cord pulled out like they weren't even sewn in. I ordered an XL and it was too small on me. That's the size I always order, and have even lost a little weight. It was tight in the arms and hips - couldn't wear it with a sweater. I loved how it looked, so I was sad to have to return it! No more left in the next size up.

Love it, lightweight, super warm
I bought this coat because I wanted a white coat to wear when I walk my dog. It's now my favorite coat. It's very warm but also lightweight. It looks good. It has plenty of pockets. I love the "extended " inner sleeves which keep hands warm on those occassions when I forget my gloves.
