Women's Coastal Rain Parka
It seems to be well-made but...
Normally I wear a size 16 so I took the advise of others and ordered a size 18, it too was too small in the hip area. Unfortunately, it has been returned. I'll continue to look for one true to size.

Noisy material, runs small
I was in desperate need of a new raincoat and could not find anything I liked in our local stores. I ordered this one hoping it would fit the bill even though I really wanted a coat with a zipper. I ordered one size up after reading the reviews and I am glad I did as I can tell it would've been too small if I had ordered my regular size. While this coat may repel the water, it is also "noisy;" you can hear me coming before you see me! Even coworkers commented on that! The buttons are somewhat large and makes it difficult to get unbuttoned easily. I really wish I would've just sent this back but I wore it not thinking it was going to be so noisy or that the buttons would be an issue. I will keep my eyes peeled for something I like better and maybe save this one for when we go camping or give it to someone that actually likes it. The coat seems to be well made and it doesn't look bad on and I like the little polka dots on the inside, those are the things that I like about it.

Nice, but snug in hips for me
Overall, I liked this jacket. I ordered the XL Regular size. I liked the Red Apple color.
I liked the button front a lot; it makes it more versatile: 1) no fiddling with an ornery zipper, 2) can unbutton the bottom button to allow more room when sitting, 3) can button as many buttons as you want depending on rainfall and temperatures, 4) l also liked the longer length, too. I didn't mind the crackling sound it makes when you wear it, but I will admit, it does sound like you are wearing a plastic tarp.
However, it was a little bit too snug in the hips if I wanted to wear a light fleece jacket or vest under it for extra warmth in rain or chilly windy weather.
I am a a pear shape, 5'9," 196#, so I am returning it for a 1X. I'm hoping the 1 X will be a better fit for me.
Suggestion: It really would be very helpful if Lands End would include the hip measurement in their coat and jacket size chart.

Fit is small
I was really looking forward to having a new rain jacket, but I could barely get this on.

Fur lined inside was nice, but it runs small

Need MORE Coastal Rain options
I need a knee-length or longer, yellow, rainproof raincoat that withstands Midwestern spring and summer rains. I walk a big dog every day regardless of weather and I HATE getting wet while on the walk. I had 40-year old yellow raincoat that finally gave out and I had to bless it to the garbage. Now I need a replacement. PLEASE!!!!! Please sell me a knee-length or longer, yellow, rainproof raincoat.

cute, just way too small....not a typical Land's End fit
We were so excited to get this coat! I actually ordered both a small and a large to give as gifts. The large was way too tight for my mother in law who typically wears a medium in Land's End, and it actually wasn't even much too big for my daughter who wears a small. The drawstring at the waist was also messed up on one. Needless to say, they both went back. So disappointing.

Gift for daughter. She likes the color and fit
Quality and fit was what I expected, great for the cool rainy days in Dallas

Sizing is way off
I've ordered several coats from LE recently as I have lost a lot of weight. The medium tall size has always been a sure bet. This is the first time the sizing has been off. It was tight in the shoulders,stomach and rear. Very odd sizing. Going back.

Jacket runs very small - no way to layer under it. Quality was not up to Land's End standards. I will return.
