Girls' Waterproof Expedition Parka
Really nice quality and style
I love this jacket! It is truly good-looking. It looks quality and it has the nice extras like the soft fleecy lining up top and the contrast buttons. My only gripe in the styling is the ruffles at the back shoulder. They're a little too much. But they aren't very noticeable and they are the only thing I would change. I love the longer length and the fur looks really good to me. My daughter has never once complained of being cold during our Massachusetts winter so I assume it is very warm as well. I ordered a size 5 little girl for my 5-year old and it is big on her. She'll definitely wear it again next year. But it wasn't too huge, and it looks SO CUTE. We matched it up with squall snow pants and she gets compliments on her snow outfit every time we go out in it. She wears it for recess every day at school and puts a LOT of stress on it but there's no sign of wear at all. I have no doubt that she can hand this down after two years of wear to her little sister for another two years. Excellent investment!

BEST Winter coat on the Market for little girls and at this price range
This is a great coat! It does run a little big but the 4T fit my average-sized 4 yr old just fine. The ruffle detail is adorable. I don't notice the boxy fit that others comment on. The coat also has a great detail...there is a fleece "sleeve" that sticks out of the sleeves and hooks over your thumb. We put this over her ski gloves so no ski can get up here sleeve. She's worn this coat to ski in for a few hours and doesn't get cold. The purple color looks really nice and the fur is a good quality and looks nice vs. fake. We couldn't ask for a better coat!

Nice, warm jacket for cold climates
I purchased the purple version of this jacket at a great price on sale, but would have perfered the Capri Blue color which was sold out.. My granddaughter usually wears a size 16, but it wasn't available so I ordered the 14. The fit is great. She said it is comfortable and warm. It seems to run a tad on the large size, which is good IMO.
I like Landsends products and order them for my grandchildren and for myself. I wish the colors for girls were not so cutesy and girly and bright. It's fine for the little ones, but the older girls want more grown up colors...like brown, a nice blue, dark plum or even a gray. They could be trimmed or lined in a nice bright color for contrast.
I would purchase this jacket again because it is long enough to cover her bottom, looks nice, is very warm, not bulky and comfortable to wear.

Nice parka with bit of ruffle detail-doesn't cinch at waist, just elastic, which isn't snug.
Got a Medium for my slim 9 year old. It fits fine with plenty of room for heavier clothes underneath parka. The Capri breeze with tasteful yellow contrast and fur hood trim were all aspects daughter really liked. It does have small ruffle detail at front/shoulders and back/beneath waist elastic area-older girl or tomboy may not go for this-my daughter didn't notice or mention it. Very nice coat all in all, but with my slim child, I really would have preferred some means of keeping cold out-from coming up in from bottom of coat...a cinch cord at the waist would have been perfect....may try placing one, but I think the elastic band built in will prevent it....so add that and it would get 5 stars! Plenty of pockets in and out and nice detachable fur hood trim. As always, love the thumb hole fleece cuff extension!

My daughter has a stormer coat that she as worn for 2 winters. I bought this one for the next 2 winters, at a wonderful sale price. It came in the mail and dd instantly fell in love with it and is wearing it to school. I love that it is a longer length and the cute but not babyish, ruffle details. She loves the cozy hood and hand warmers. DD8 is tall and usually wears a 10/12 for the length. I called LE directly and the weight/height on the 10/12 was plenty big even though I was buying for next year. I think it is on the larger side of the size range, which in my opinion, is great for a coat.

Love this coat!!!
It is warm and soft and lush. My 4 yr old daughter is a total girly girl. the pink coat was just the right color. It was soft it is long. No need to layer up. I just love this coat.

Warm, great fit with great extras
This coat is doubling as a snow coat and a school coat for my 9 year old. In short, it is perfect. It keeps her toasty on this cold school mornings and when she tested it in the snow over Christmas, she stayed warm and dry (even after rolling around and building a snowman). She loves the convenient pockets and especially the sleeves which have the little hand protector that goes around her hand so that when she slips her gloves on, there is no chance of snow getting up her sleeve. This also adds warmth without gloves, too. Great coat and great style that dresses up or down.

Cozy and stylish
My 8 year old loves this coat. Fits her well and room to grow for another year or two!

Bought 2 coats in blue and raspberry. My kids love it so much, that they wear them everyday. The coat is well constructed and has room for sweater to layer in.

Holds up kid after kid
These are the only coats I buy my five girls. The coats get passed down the line and still look and work great. The light blue color really shows the dirt; however, and make sure you take off the fur before washing and drying! I've washed our oldest coat (circa 2011) numerous times and it still looks great (minus the fur I melted in the dryer!)
