Women's Colorblock 3-in-1 Squall Jacket
Sleeves need to be slick
Pros: Excellent quality, good features, black color-block sides are shaping (I ordered red/blk) - that makes s a great look without taking real space away for active sports, outer jacket alone is great, fleece alone is fine for outerwear - straight and loose rather than shaped..
Cons: Very difficult to wrestle into the fleece sleeves, especially when the two pieces are used together. I so wish they were lined with something slick. I love fleece, but I hate fighting with it.
I'm going to try the pieces separately one more time before I decide whether to send it back because I really like the outer jacket. But that's not what I bought. I bought a 3-in-1.

great quality! super warm
I ordered a large, to make sure I could fit extra layers, and I hardly ever need them! It has been in the negative for the last week, and the jacket has been great.

Felxible Travel Coat
This coat fits well when pieces are separate or zipped together. The solid black I purchased looks less sporty and sleek enough for business travel or nicer events. The Polartec lining is not as refined a shape as separate fleece jackets but it will work for international travel where I don't check bags and travel light. With liner I can still layer a tee and light sweater underneath. Without liner, I can layer a short suit jacket. Wish it were longer like my squall parka to cover more in wet weather. Will be testing it for cool wet travel overseas soon! Overall, it should prove to be very versatile for weather above 30 deg.

I received this in the mail on Monday and have worn it every day since. It's warm and is great in the snow. I got my normal size and the fit is great. I would highly recommend this coat.

Where is the reflective quality for safety?
This is a nice, comfortable coat. Seems to have sturdy zippers. I hope it is a coat that will last for many years.
However, I purchased it online and didn't have a chance to see it in real life until it arrived. I am VERY disappointed with the fact that it has NO REFLECTIVE piping or strips at all. I have found myself walking back from the ski lifts alongside a road in the dark before and it was unsettling. The one comfort was that some of our coats were reflective. Unfortunately, not this one. In my mind, I thought all Lands End coats had reflective details. Now I have to decide whether I can add my own reflective parts or return the coat.

Like the 3 in 1 system but runs very small
I have ordered clothes from Lands End for several years but the last couple of items I've purchased have been a bit disappointing. While I love the coat, it runs very small. I normally order a medium, but after reading other reviews, I ordered a large. If I wear a sweatshirt or sweater, this coat is very difficult to get on and off and fits tight. The fleece lining does not allow for sleeves to slide in or out comfortably. I downhill ski and was hopIng this would work but I'm not so sure.

Great jacket system
I have had this 3-in-1 for about a month. I have worn it to pick up kids from school, on cold windy days at the park, and while walking for exercise. It is wonderful to have so much versatility with the 2 separate jackets that can be worn alone or together. Quality is very good. Metal zippers look like they will last a long time. I love having all the pockets - I do not like to carry a purse if I can just stick wallet, keys, phone, etc., in a pocket.

Just what I wanted!!!
My daughter has this jacket which I just loved because of its weight. Not to heavy(unless you but the liner in for added warmth). Was just what I was looking for!!!

Great 3 in 1 jacket
After reading these reviews I was skeptical of the fit with the inner shell and arm sizes, but I am thrilled with the fit and sizing of this coat. I am 5'4" and 137 lbs and bought the Medium. The fit is perfect. Arm length and diameter was perfect. I love that the inner shell zips out and the outer jacket can be worn sparately. Great if you have a big sweater on but still need protection from the elements in the rain and snow. I love the large hood with the brim as well.
I just found this to be a great purchase and will be wearing this jacket for many years to come.
