Women's Military Anorak Jacket
Love It - Beautiful Material
This is a gorgeous jacket, great material. Although a little pricy, it is a high quality. I found it fit small in the sleeves and chest. I normally wear a large and I ended up ordering a 1X. I wanted to be able to wear a sweater underneath. I am only 5?2 and the waist hits perfectly, which tells me that if you have a long waist you may have a problem

I purchased this in black to fill a gap in my wardrobe, as I needed a mid-weight jacket without a hood. The price was a bit higher than I would have liked, but this jacket is well worth it. I ordered a size up from my usual LE shirt size and got the Small, and it was a good call as the shoulders are a bit snug, and I am small in the shoulders and chest. The fabric is great, not shiny, but a lovely black matte. The construction is great and all interior seams have binding. Love the zip-snap combo in the front. Collar looks great standing up or lying flat. Only thing I probably wouldn't do is to roll the sleeves up and secure with the tabs as I find the folded bit gets thick and restrictive just below the elbow. Overall a winner!

Alot of gold
I really wanted to like this jacket, however the gold zippers (3 of them) and snaps stand out too much for me against the black. You don't really notice it that much in the photos, but I didn't like the look. Otherwise it's well made and cute. It costs too much to not love it--it went back.

Great Fall Addition, Fits Small
Anorak jackets are all the rage right now, and this one doesn't disappoint. The jacket is well-made, and I love the fabric and color (I purchased the green color). I would agree with the other reviewers that this jacket fits small. I normally wear a petite size 8, and I am pretty firmly that size (I can't really "get away" with a 6; in Land's End stuff, a 10 is too big). I ordered the petite s (6-8), and it fits pretty close in the shoulders -- there's certainly no way that I'd be able to wear a thick sweater under this jacket. If you'd like a little more room in the jacket, I'd order up. That said, I'm going to keep it in this size -- it's flattering, and it really is a nice layering piece for Fall.

I was inspired to make this purchase based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. I love the style - it can be casual or slightly dressier; I've worn it with both pants and dresses and it will look great with jeans (I got the black). The material is very soft (other jackets I was looking at in this style were of a thicker, less flexible fabric). I especially appreciate a good looking jacket that doesn't feel fussy or constricting. I usualy wear a PM in dresses and skirts, a PL or PM in tops, depending on the style - I got the PL based on the sizing comments and it's roomy enough to wear over a sweater. Going to have to resist ordering this in another color!

LOVE this jacket!
My jacket came yesterday and I am so pleased with it! The quality is excellent - the jacket has a lot of detailing and is well made. The green color and military styling is versatile and on-trend. I think the fit runs a little small. I'm 5'-3", between 125-130lbs. I typically wear between a 4-6. I ordered a size Small Petite (6-8) and it fits me great.

I love the updated modern style of this jacket! I love the material and for me the 1X sizing ran perfect. I bought this in the silver and the green. I received the silver. I do not love the bright gold trim on the silver. I am still waiting on the green which I know I will like with the gold. I think the silver should have had either silver or gun metal trim. I may exchange the silver for the navy or black. It is a great jacket.

Love the style of this jacket......
however it does fit small. I am normally a 1X/2X in Land's End products. I ordered a 2X and it only just fits with a sweater underneath. I would advise sizing up if you intend to wear anything other than a tee shirt under it. I recommend it only for the style. Sizing consistency with LE products is a huge issue for me, to the point I may stop ordering.

Adorable, but small!
This jacket is adorable, stylish and very well made! My only disappointment was that is tight in the shoulders. I usually wear a size 4 so I thought a size small would be just right. (I am 5'3", 122 lb). If I cross my arms or lift them above my head, it's uncomfortable. I love it so much I reordered it in a medium.

Material is great - would have been the perfect fall jacket but the cord in the back sits high giving me a weird shape! I examined the jacket and noticed the cord was sewn an inch higher in the back than the front.
It's a shame - returning it. Cost too much to have an "so-so" fit.
