Boys' Down Parka
Grandson loves the color , fits well, wears it all the time .
Bought for 7 year old grandson outgrowing his current LE parka. Ordered 3 different styles,, he picked this one and loves it.. Hood fits well around the head without being too tight. He likes the extensions in the arms which partially cover his hands .

The blue color is gorgeous on my son. The main complaint is the length of the sleeves. For some reason, there is extra fabric so the thumb loops are way off the end of the coat. The problem comes after playing in the snow. Everything stays all bunched up and doesn't dry off. We bought the fleece-lined puffer coat in the same size this winter. We had to return it because the zipper was faulty. The fit of that coat was much better... but the zipper on this down coat is way easier for little hands to manage.

Warm coat but lacking in pockets
I bought the light blue color of this coat for my daughter because she loves the Land's End down coats and none of the girl ones were left in her size. It fits well maybe a little on the big size as she wears a size 14 shirt but this coat is a 10-12 and it's long in the arms on her. Biggest issue she has with this coat is that there are NO inside pockets! Big disappointment after the previous Land's End coats we have had in the past that almost had too many pockets and even had pockets for the hand warmers. This coat is severely lacking in pockets. Other than that it's still a very warm coat that allows her to play in the snow for hours and stay warm.

Boys like it so far...
We have had a milder winter than I feared, after last year's Christmas ice storm and power outages, but I can safely say that my twin grandsons did *not* look at the parkas and say they were too girly or anything like that because of the diagonal stitching, as a couple of negative reviews indicated. I did buy grey v. the bright blue, knowing that the bright color would be thought dorky. My grandsons said I was right. They love the sleeves with the thumb-hole for keeping cold out, and the warm hoods. And 1/2 price for cozy down!

Good but has its flaws
I need a simple lightweight down jacket for my busy busy boys who can't spend an extra second to get their jackets on and this jacket does the trick, except the wrist cuffs. As they put their hands through the wrist cuffs, the extra fabric attached to the cuffs get push forward too much that it requires them to use their other hand to pull the hand through and push the extra fabric back into the sleeves. It's okay for my 6 year old to do it, but for my 4 year old, it is extremely troublesome that his hands can't go right through, and he gets so frustrated with it. Even when I'm there to help him get his hand through, I find myself having a hard time with it. I've attached a picture to show the extra fabric outside of the sleeves. I've also attached a picture of an older version of Landsend down jacket that had a wrist cuffs that made sense (no extra fabric). My trouble with this jacket is rather hard to explain but I hope the pictures I've attached of the two versions would get my point across. Though the older jacket is a toddler size and I don't know if the toddler sizes have different wrist cuffs.

Ordered for my son - he loves the color blue - fits slightly larger than size - he says it's very warm and loves the hand warmers. Price is great (purchased at 40%). He will definitely wear it this year and next.

sized poorly, but perfect for an unintended audience
Bought this for a 5 year old boy in size 5-6. It's being very happily worn over a sweater by a 7 year old girl, who normally wears size 7. She loves the blue color, the longer length, and the size is excellent for her. The boy liked the color, too, but was absolutely swimming in it. Very strange sizing, although it worked out and the coat is great if you can ignore that as we have.
