I love it, but I don't LOVE IT!!
First I am a long long loooooong time customer of Land's End. We are talking 25+ years of buying Land's End products, and never have I ever disliked anything that I have purchased from you guys. I have never not LOVED a Land's End Product... Until now.
First the good news. I love the color coordination of the components, the inner jacket and the outer jacket. I like the thumb loops on the fleece liner jacket. I like how the outer coat is roomy and warm.
Now for the bad news: IT IS TOO SMALL!! I have an older iteration that I purchased for the same daughter that looks great after 3 winters of wear, and she can still fit the outer shell by itself. This is the version with the down jacket with the removable sleeves that transform it into a vest. But the point is that it was roomy enough to have a sweater on underneath. And we all know in subzero temps, layering is the name of the game. This new version of this coat is terrible for layering. If my daughter is wearing her uniform sweater and tries to put the coat on, it will not allow her arms in the sleeve without a fight; she cannot zip it at all; and it looks painfully uncomfortable. I have even tested with thinner sweaters and sweatshirts, the results are the same. For her to wear this coat, which I bought one size larger than she is, she can only wear a shirt, either long sleeved or short sleeved. But she can't wear this coat with her sweater dresses. At least with the older model, with the down coat liner, she was able to put a sweater on and the down liner and the outer coat without any issues.
I don't like that is isn't down lined. While I like the fleece liner personally, and I have decided to buy her a few more fleece jackets, that liner that was a nice down jacket that transformed into a down vest added a level of versatility that worked for 3 out of 4 seasons.
Like I said, I love the coat's style and concept. But on practicality, it gets low marks; on versatility it is limited; and the fit it is abysmal. I am on the fence on whether or not to recommend this product or not to a friend.

Love the coat except the sleeves are too long.
This is a really great coat. My daughter can usually wear the outer layer alone where we live. We really like the wind/water resistant feature. On really cold days, it's nice to have the fleece liner and she loves the softness. The only problem with have is that the sleeves are too long. They are very difficult to roll up or shorten in any way. The velcro on the cuffs used to shorten it help, but if we get it to fit/hold the sleeve up comfortably, she has to undo it to get it on/off. It's too time consuming for an active 6 y/o. Otherwise, we love the coat. I'm sure I will buy her another one when this one becomes too small.

Great coat! Very warm but not bulky.
The overall quality of this jacket is really wonderful. It is very comfortable, without the bulk you would expect from a coat this warm. The 3-in-1 system makes the coat worth the money.
My only complaint is the thumb-hole sleeves in the fleece jacket. The idea is great, especially for someone who may spend a lot of time playing in the snow. However, it is uncomfortable and sort of a nuisance for every day wear. They get in the way, and get dirty quickly. I am considering cutting them off and re-hemming the sleeves. My husband has the same feature in a LE coat we bought for him. Again, for being in the snow, it's great, but not for daily wear.

would have received 5 boats but the fleece can be tricky for the kids to put back in without help. But they love them, I sized up and they should get another winter out of them.

Good Winter Coat
I bought this coat for my 11 year old daughter and it's a great fit for her. We live in Indiana where it doesn't always get bitterly cold but it can, so she wears the fleece mostly and the outer coat when she'll be outside for extended periods. A great purchase and will last a couple years at least plus we'll be able to pass it down to my next daughter.

Fantastic for Midwest Winters
Quote from my 10 year old " I really like it. It's warm and easy to put on. I get lots of compliments. The inside is very soft."
Mom: I haven't washed it yet; but it appears to be machine wash which is a plus.
The fit is true to size and I expect to get another winter from it. I think a great value. Recommended.

My daughter felt this jacket was uncomfortable.
I believe the reason she felt it was uncomfortable was because the fleece lining was very "sticky". I was hard for her to put the jacket on without her sleeves of her tops being pushed up into the jacket. In addition, when she would remove the jacket the sleeves of the fleece liner would end up inside-out because they would stick to her top/shirt. I returned the jacket.

This is a very warm, attractive, comfortable coat -- and the quality is excellent!
I ordered this coat for my granddaughter. She loves it! It keeps her toasty warm and meets her standards of comfort and fashion. The fleece liner definitely adds warmth -- and can also be worn separately.
