Boys' Expedition Waterproof Down Parka
This coat is very well made. Inside is so soft and warm, and love the glove part. I bought these coats for my daughter and son. I am glad I got them. Highly recommended.

I am a very particular shopper, and as usual, I researched and compared before I bought this coat. I wanted a waterproof exterior, and down insulation. I could not be more pleased with this coat. It is such high quality, and it looks terrific. The other review had criticized the hood being too big, but it has an adjustable velcro strap on the back of the hood that accomodates for size. The material that makes the thumb hook is great, on warmer days, my kids use this as a sort of fingerless glove. I love this coat so much I am tempted to by them in the next sizes to make sure I have them as my kids grow! Thanks, Land's End for making such a great product.

I bought this parka for my grandson. He just loves it and he stays warm and dry for the most part?
He would still be waring his Land's End parka from last year if he wouldn't grow so much. Lands End can keep him for a customer for life if they put that little thumb holed knitted cuff in their men's parkas!
The parka is well made and warm and traditionally stylish. What little boy wouldn't want one just like it?
If I were younger I'd get one for myself---with the thumb holed knitted cuffs, too!
Oh, and that last year's parka was laundered with a bit of that OXY stuff and is now as crisp and bright as it was last year and has a new home. Same for the snow bibs.

this coat is the perfect color and fit
My 9 year old boy likes the coat because it it warm but not too bulky. He really likes the Sherpa lining and the hand warmers. I was surprised that the zipper was plastic but so far has been fine. Our last LE coats lasted 2years before needing to get new but due to size not quality.

This coat (for my 6 year old son) was my first ever Land's End purchase and it does not disappoint!! It is extremely well made, great looking (love the fur trim around the hood), and most importantly-- very warm! We have already had some extremely cold, windy days here in NYC and my son said he did not feel cold at all in this coat. My son wears a size 5/6 in boy's clothes, so I got him a Medium and is very roomy. He will definitely be able to wear it again next year. The only feature we did not like is the thumb holes in the grow-along-sleeves....my son had a hard time maneuvering his hands and thumb into the right openings, so I stitched the thumb holes closed. I had been buying both of my children another company's Warmest Coat since they were toddlers, but noticed over the last few years that the other company had begun using cheap materials and the coats did not hold up very well through the long winters and many washings, so I am extremely happy I found this down parka from Land's End. I absolutely love it!

Terrific, good quality coat.
We have lived in Europe for a number of years. My son wore this coat age 7-8. (I bought a size up). Because it was down, it was warm. Because it had a waterproof lining on the outside, he stayed dry. The hood could be removed, which I liked. It wasn't cheap, but well worth the money in the end.

Love this jacket!
I bought the old 3-in-1 for my eldest son a few years ago which I loved... but this I love even more! I ordered it for my 6 year old. The quality is great, it's super warm, enough to withstand Canadian winters, I love the fleece lining in the hood and that it's large enough to block all of the cold elements from his head and face. Most of all, I love that it's actually waterproof! We ordered the zinc colour, and while I worried it wouldn't be bright enough, the colour is just right. In only the couple of weeks he's been wearing it he's gotten so many compliments on it and everyone wants to know where it's from. He'll fit in this jacket for another year or 2 with the extend a sleeve feature. I've bought a lot of stuff from Lands End, and this is by far my favourite purchase. For the quality and wearability, the price is decent, especially with 30% off :)

Third year and still like new!
We bought this coat for my then, 8 year old son, three winters ago! It still looks like new. It still fits. It is very warm, for our frigid winters! My son is crazy harsh on clothes, especially outerwear. This coat has stayed nice through two winters and is bracing for the third. I am impressed. The price has increased significantly in 3 years, however.

Good but missing hood closure and reflective strips
Overall the coat is super. It is extremely warm, fits well and looks great. There are 2 features that are missing. Your version from a few years ago had reflective strips on the front and back them so that a child is safe walking around after night fall. This was ingenious. Alas now this feature is gone. There is also no way to close the hood around the face. The hood is wide and gapey. A coat this warm needs to have closure around the face. The hood easily flops off with a gust of wind. We live in Canada and my sons need the same warm protection around their heads, ears and chin as they do around their bodies. Please bring back these features. Thank you

Love this coat - where did the husky go?
Bought this coat 2 years ago for my son in a 14-16Husky and he loves it. Unfortunately he has grown a size this year and we need to replace it. Much to my dismay and dissappointment it is no longer available in husky sizes. Please Lands End - bring back the husky option. If available in husky this product would have gotten a 5 sail boat rating, but since husky is no longer and option I had to lower the rating
