Girls' Waterproof Squall® Parka
great quality, narrow shoulders and arms
I ordered this coat in blue, size 16 for my thin 12 year old daughter who is average height. We have had many of these coats in the past and the fit has changed. My kids used to do 3 years with them(they are that good) but not anymore. They are narrower in the shoulders and arms and fit tight with layers even if the length of arms and body of the coat is still fine. This one will fit her 2 years and she loves everything about it. Plenty of pockets for mittens and the quality of the fabric is great. I recommend this coat.

Best There Is
Last Christmas I bought each of my girls one of these coats and the matching overalls. They are definitely worth the money. They are made very well. My girls are pretty active and put these coats to the test. They wash well, also. One day without my knowing they got into some old wood and had made quite a mess and I thought for sure they had stained them permanently. After a little scrubbing they came out of the wash looking brand new. This coat will keep your kids warm. All three girls just got in from playing outside (low 20's) and said they were actually hot. The coats and overall snowpants are going strong into their 2nd winter and I am completely happy with my purchase! Lands' End you hit this one out of the park!

This coat keeps my daughter warm and looks cute. Fit is true to size.

comfy and cozy
My daughter loves this coat. The purple is very cute and is as it appears on screen. She loves all the pockets and not tight in the arms when wearing heavier sweaters as some jackets are.

The best winter coat ever!
I have purchased this coat for my girls two years in a row, and I will continue to do so as long as Land's End keeps making it. The fit is great, and it has just enough style to keep my girls happy. The coat keeps them warm, and it's functional (plenty of pockets for the gloves and accessories they never want to wear). I know this coat goes through a lot (I've seen them on the playground during recess), but it continues to look great. When it gets dirty, simply put it in the wash and it will come out looking like new. If you buy it, be sure you put your child's name on the label. It's so popular, your child might come home with the wrong coat one day!

Great coat, excellent quality
We live in north-western WI and I bought this coat for my 7-yr-old daughter as a fall/spring cold/wet weather jacket -- right now (late Oct) it is in the upper 20s / low 30s as she waits for the bus, then warms up to the upper 30s / low 40s by afternoon, and this jacket has been keeping her snug and warm (and dry for the times it has rained). The playground at school can get very windy and cold, and this coat keeps the wind out. The temp rating is right on (in our area, she has to have an even warmer coat for winter for our frigid mornings). My daughter is 52 inches tall and slim (22 inch waist), and the Big Girl S size fits her beautifully. I love the longer length and grow-with-me sleeves -- she will be able to wear this coat for at least 2 or even 3 years since the body of the coat is roomy enough for growth in height and width, yet doesn't look too big on her right now -- so if you are hesitant to spend this much on a coat for a growing child, this coat is worth it! Fantastic quality that will last for several years. The first couple times my daughter wore the coat, she complained that the front neck was too stiff and rubbed her chin, so she wore it not-quite-zipped all the way and kept her neck warm with a gaiter. But within a couple days, the stiff neck softened up and now she zips it right to the top and it doesn't bother her at all. We bought the Clover Flower and love the color -- the color was true to what we saw online -- beautiful medium purple body with pinkish purple sleeves. My daughter loves it.

This jacket is the perfect color and fit.
The description of this jacket was exactly right. The longer length is perfect.

I ordered two of these coats for my daughters. I ordered a larger size for my step-daughter and it fits her very well. My daughter is very petite and I had to return her for a smaller size (she's 7 and I originally ordered a 7-8 but had to return it for the little girl size and probably could have gone even smaller). Overall, they both love the colors but we haven't used them for really cold weather yet.

Quality is excellent!
My daughter tried on this coat and it is great. However, I am returning it for a different color. I ordered the Purple (clover) color and when I received it looks nothing like on my computer screen. Could be my monitor only, but it looks very dark purple on-line with another darker color on the sleeves - my coat is a lighter shade of purple with almost rose colored sleeves. I just didn't care for it - I would keep it if other colors were not available, but I'm going to try for the magenta and hopefully we like it better. I'm also going to re-order in the plus size to make sure it lasts for two years. I ordered the 7/8 - my daugthter is 7 and weighs 55 lbs - not overly heavy and the coat fits, but I can't see it lasting for two years in the regular. It is a very well made coat and a good deal with 30% off....

Great Winter Jacket
My daughter loves the hot pink with a hood. We live in Colorado and will wear the jacket for skiing, sledding and shoveling snow. It is very warm and well-made.
