Women's Long Sleeve Hooded Anorak
Haven't worn yet. Different fit than expected & may return for more structured fit.
Pretty color (blue). Not the smoothly finished fabric i expected - more cotton, washed feeling.

I liked this coat but it's HUGE! I'm 5'2" and 125 and the XS Petite jacket is like a potato sack on me.

Has no shape, not flattering
Beautiful colors and nice material but it does run big. I usually use petite medium, but it was too big. i was looking for a lite coat to take my dog out for a walk here in Southern California. I tried pulling the cord to give it a shape and try rolling the sleeves but it looks like a lab coat, specially when I remove the hood attached with buttons. I am afraid I will have to send them both back (blue and spice orange). My local Lands End store does not carry them for me to try the petite small. I am disappointed.

I too thought it was too large at first but the drawstring at the waist pulled it in enough to give it shape. So if it's cool can wear it over a sweater or not. Soft cotton. Lively blue color and good pockets. Love the detachable hood. Great buy.

Very large and very baggy
I originally ordered the large, which is usually the size of top that I wear (I am broad-shouldered and large-busted and tall). However, the large was much, much too big. Hilariously large, in fact---it looked like two of me could have fit in it, and I'm not at all small. I returned it for a medium---I don't recall ever wearing a medium in anything---but it is still pretty big. I decided to keep it anyway, and I even washed it in hot water and dried it in the dryer (the tag says to wash in cold and line dry) in the hopes that it would shrink, but if it did, it wasn't enough to make a difference. I know it's supposed to be a somewhat relaxed fit, per the description, but this is kind of ridiculous. And here's the thing: If it's warm enough for me to wear a thin, all-cotton jacket, then it is too warm for me to wear a sweatshirt underneath. So I would much prefer it if this jacket was a little more fitted (no, the drawstring doesn't count). I don't even button or zip it because it is still so baggy when I do that it just looks odd. It's comfy but not flattering. I also wish it had on-seam pockets and cuffs at the wrists instead of the elastic (I rolled them once anyway). I got the blue, and it is lovely; I like the length, but it honestly may be a few inches too long for me; if you are petite, it will swallow you up. I am baffled by a previous reviewer's complaint about wrinkles, though, because mine arrived wrinkle-free and remains so after washing (though again, I did put it in the dryer; line drying might make it wrinkly). I did decide to keep it but will hope for an updated and improved design of this jacket so I can try that instead. I am also considering taking it to be altered so that it is more flattering and can be zipped up without making me look eight months pregnant.

Love the lobster tail color and I've gotten many compliments. I do wish it was at least a little water resistant. This is NOT a raincoat!!

I love it!
I love this anorak. The sapphire color is gorgeous. I like the casual look of the fabric. The fit is generous, as described. My only suggestion would be the addition of an inside pocket, and some sort of closing device on the drawcord at the waist and bottom. I fixed the one at the waist by adding two of those plastic barrel-shaped spring-devices from an old jacket and it works perfectly! I'm so glad I ordered this--it's a fun, youthful addition to my wardrobe.

If ordered the 1x and it fits, but is not as roomy as I had expected... I buy XL knit tops from Lands End and an XL in this would have been too small.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!
I TOTALLY LOVE this jacket! It is the perfect weight for spring weather. I get compliments everytime I wear it. I have it in orange and considering the blue if it goes on sale. I have worn it many times and it still looks brand new...no wrinkles.
