Girls' ThermaCheck®-200 Fleece Pea Coat
Not as nice as previous years
I bought the next size up of this jacket for my daughter for next year. It is really not as nice or as good quality as the previous jacket. I would definitely not pay full price for it and I'm thinking of taking it back even though I got it on clearance with 25% off. It's a pity, the previous version was a really cute coat. This one has a much sloppier fit.

What a disappointment!
We've bought these peacoats, several times previously, for our twins. They've always been a "go to". I was so excited when I saw the blue one at a reduced price (One of my girls loves all things blue). Well, she was even more disappointed than I was when she received it. She's 7, and immediately noticed that it was missing all the cute little details their previous coats had. No complementing fabric lining in the cuffs or around the collar. No tapering in the back, or little slit. No bands around the wrists. Even the quality of the fleece seems cheaper, like a cheap blanket. She refuses to wear it and insists "it's not the same coat!". If a 7 year old can quickly identify and articulate the lack of quality in a product then you better believe it has changed. You get what you pay for...I would've gladly paid more for the peacoat Land's End used to sell. Please bring it back!

Very disappointed not like the pea coat LE used to make
This is the 2nd LE pea coat that we have purchased. We still have my older daughter's coat from a few years ago. LOVED it! We were so disappointed in this coat when it arrived for my younger daughter. Unlike the coat LE used to make, this coat doesn't have the nice princess seams down the back, nor does it have the little belt and buttons. It also doesn't have the tab and the button on the cuff, and it has less buttons on the front too. This coat is really wide and sloppy and fits like a bag. Not at all stylish like the pea coat used to be. While the color is nice and the fleece is nice. Nothing else about this coat is.

Lovely casual jacket. . . but runs HUGE!
Not sure what kind of size folk Landsend is catering to here. The jacket is lovely, but sized for women, not kids. The 14 is a little big for me, and I wear an XS in women's jackets. Perhaps I will go back for a size 10-12 ! Buy this for yourself, NOT for your child!!

darling soft little coat
She hasn't worn it outside yet, but the coat is very soft, and very cute! The fleece is nice and thick, warmer than most fleece I've seen. I'm glad it has pockets for her hands. We went with the purple, but the bright blue was also very cute. The color of the pink is a little lighter than it looks online.

My girls love this coat. It is stylish, warm and lets them move. No pilling. Runs a little large, size down. My 8yo is normally a 6. I initially bought the 6 and had to return it for a 4. My 10yo is normally a size 10, I ordered the small (7-8) and it fits perfectly. We got the blue and the color is beautiful. Nice pockets. Very soft. We'll definitely get 2 yrs out of these coats.

Great school coat!
My daughter is in 4th grade this year and she has had one of these coats for every single year since kindergarten. She loves them and so do I. As the Mom who gets to take care of it and keep it clean, I love it! So far, I've had none that have piled, and they wash up so easy and look new wash after wash. She says they're soft and fit comfortably, stretch where they need to during movement, especially while running and playing at recess. We live in a climate where it ranges from 20 degrees to 50 degrees for winter and it keeps her warm throughout that range. I'm very pleased with the quality of the item and it's durability.

This coat can be dressy or casual.
This coat is very cute! I worried that the buttons might look weird when I ordered it, but they go nicely with the coat (medium toned tortoise shell & not too glossy like the caption portrayed). Fit is true to size, a bit loose on my size 10slim 63 lb daughter.

Not what I expected
My daughter did not like this coat and it wasn't what I expected so I returned it. Although the blue color I ordered was quite beautiful, I just didn't like the fleece material. If this were made as a wool coat in the blue color I definitely would buy it for her again.
