Girls' Print Stormer Jacket
Cute print, daughter loves it
I am in WI so we do expect a nice, warm coat for Winter. Keep in mind, that coats do not have to be heavy to be warm with the new types of insulation. DD (7) loves it and I love that LE products have an option to take out the sleeves and pant legs on outerwear. The added touch with the hand covers to keep the sleeves down and stop air circulation from rising up is great. I would have preferred a Sherpa lining though, it just helps keep the chill out and feels cozy. :)

This jacket is perfect for our daughter and New England winters.
She loves the print and weight of the jacket. It is on the lighter side for a winter jacket, but allows for moveability, layer underneath with clothing and comfort when in the car without feeling overheated. Our daughter typically is on the warmer side most of the year so less bulk while providing warmth and protection from the cold is fantastic. Her favorite part are the sleeves and the pattern!

Not For Cold Weather
The warmth rating for this jacket is not accurate. If you have mild winters, this jacket is perfect. If you have cold winters like we do in MN, this jacket will only keep your child warm during the fall. My four year old child is already asking me to get her a warm coat.

Lightweight and the quality you've come to expect from LE
I have been purchasing winterwear for my granddaughters since they were 18 months; our oldest is now 8 years old. I will not buy any other brand and was happy to see a mid-lightweight jacket for Fall before it got really cold and she needed the Squall. This one was perfect, light enough to wear on the playground, without the bulk and weight of the squall. It's wind resistant which is what she needs. She immediately looked to see if the hand covers were in this jacket and they were, she has come to expect this from her jackets. This can be work with layers as the temperatures go down but for early Fall temperatures it is a good light jacket.

Adorable and Warm, Yet Light-Weight
Right out of the box, my 5-year-old daughter loved this jacket. It is very cute, a terrific shade of pink (a touch of violet so it's not too bubblegum), and the print is fun without overwhelming it. It fit beautifully, the ruching in the back keeps it snug to her body to give it a nice shape without being constricting, and the hand warmers are a nice touch. My husband was concerned that it wouldn't be warm enough because it is so light weight, but whatever fancy insulating fabric Lands' End used works wonderfully. Highly recommend! Another winner from Lands' End.

Not for MN weather
I bought this jacket for my daughter because it said it would be warm without the bulk. Well, it might be warm for some parts of the country, but not for Minnesota. I loved the look of the jacket, but it didn't keep her warm enough on a day it was about 15 degrees.

Needs to be referred to as "warm" and nothing further---it is a SHELL.
As a SHELL I'd recommend it....as a WINTER JACKET---OMG NO!!! :( Too LIGHT!!! It's BEAUTIFULLY-made though, so we're going to LAYER and KEEP it.

a little large
I was a little disappointed when I received this in the mail. It seemed so large and not very thick. I kept it anyway and she ended up growing a little so now it's perfect. I layer it with a fleece jacket, so with both jackets and the snowpants (which are really cute together) she keeps nice and warm, even in our Alaska weather! The hand covers are a nice touch and the "grow-able" snow pants will help to keep her in them all winter.

Pretty jacket but not for the coldest days
My daughter likes the look of this jacket and that it is not too bulky to keep in her middle school locker. Unfortunately this means I have to buy another one to play in the snow or ski, it does not seem warm enough for those days.

Cute and great fit, but does not look to be good enough for actual winter conditions.
I ordered this based on the temperature rating, and when I received it today, I was very surprised. It seems to be thinner than my daughter's fall jacket, but is meant for winter conditions. Then I double checked the temperature ratings listed. To be honest, I'm not sure it would be warm enough at the temperatures listed. While I would consider keeping it for a fall/spring jacket, we do in fact, already have one. Kind of expensive for a second fall jacket. So now I'm still searching for a proper winter jacket for a typical cold Canadian winter.
