Women's Coastal Rain Coat
Nice fabric and style but didn't fit
I have purchased several coats from Lands End in a size Large/Tall and all have been just great. Unfortunately, this raincoat was way to tight across the chest. The sleeve and body length were fine. I liked the style very much and the color and fabric were great. Not sure why there was a problem this time in the bust area. It is such a shame that sizes are not consistent from one garment to another.

Wonderful lightweight coat
This is a wonderful lightweight coat. Ordered the navy and love it! It is a true classic navy, not a bright blue. The fit is nice, slightly larger than expected, but not enough to size down. With a sweater/cardigan on it will fit well. Yes, it has a crinkle sound, but once washed that goes away. It is great for those wet winter days and will be the perfect Spring, Fall transition coat.

Nice coat for our mild, winter weather
This is a smart coat which I will wear with boots, jeans and a scarf.
Crisp fabric but not too stiff.
The purple colour is more blue than pink so will go with lots and not be too outlandish.

Nice Spring coat
Bought this as a gift for my wife. This is a nice lightweight coat. It would have earned a 5 but it is cut a little oddly. My wife normally wears an L in Lands End, and this coat fit everywhere but in the shoulders/upper arms when it was buttoned. She had top go up 1 size and it still binds a little in the upper arm area, but it's usable. Just kind of a weird cut. Thanks to Lands End for their excellent customer service for the exchange. The customer service would be a 5+; it was excellent.

Did not work for me.
Reading the reviews, I decided to size up. Mistake. The bigger size was too big- shoulders too wide, sleeves too long. I ordered navy color and it was a very drab uniform-like dusty gray/navy and it did not suit me at all.
I was looking for an overcoat for air travel - you know, airports, drafty halls etc. This coat would probably be good for this purpose. However, I doubt it would protect me from a rain shower. It seemed better made than recent LE offerings, but nothing special.
I returned it. Will I re-order? I don't think so. The search continues.

Who makes a RAIN COAT that ends ABOVE THE KNEES? My pants, dresses and shoes are going to get soaking wet. A rain coat needs to cover my knees and protect my shoes somewhat. Please make a FLORIDA strength rain coat with a hood and enough length that nothing gets wet. And don't get me started on rain jackets. They're a complete waste of money.

Beautiful color, well made
quality as advertised, purple color is great, love the print lining. My only complaint is the outer shell fabric produces a sound not unlike a bag of potato chips. I won't be sneaking up on anyone in this coat!

Consider sizing up.
Good quality coat - nicely made. However, the fit is very straight. If you are larger in the hips consider sizing up. I purchased a Large as I always do. From the front the coat looks good BUT because of the straight cut the pleat splays somewhat in the back. It will be going back.

LOVE THIS !!!
Just got my Coastal Raincoat today and loved it before I even took it out of the package!! The Red Apple color, not too red and not too orange is perfect for Spring and beyond with a darling 'nautical print' lining. I am 5'10" and the tall large is just right in length, a bit above my knees. Sleeves, a perfect length with a cute button/placket at the wrist. Fits roomy for clothes underneath depending on the weather. It is everything LE said it was in the description, and LOVE the PLEAT in the back. Fabric is almost silky, buttery-soft to the touch, and will hold up well in any weather being POLYESTER :-) Can't wait for it to stop snowing here in Chicago, and start raining or just be a nice jacket weather day :-)
