Women's Plus Size Polartec Aircore 200 Parka
I love this jacket ~ VERY versatile
Love this jacket. Fit is excellent. I am a size 3x and it is VERY flattering, which always makes one feel confident!! I love the hip/butt covering length. I have washed this jacket three times and it still looks brand new. It is toasty warm. We had a VERY cold winter in Central New York and this coat is just as warm as heavier and bulkier coats I own. Worked outside on a day it was 48 degrees and it kept me warm but not too hot. Excellent to wear in the car, no added bulk. I love the zipper on the left arm. It has come in very handy. I love when you add special details like that pocket, Lands End. In my opinion, this is the PERFECT coat !! I'd order another but only white is available.

Great jacket for a variety of weather
I bought this jacket in the ivory to have for either travel to cooler/colder temps or when it goes below 50 degrees here in St. Augustine, FL. It is a nice length and would accommodate a standard tunic length top. It has lots of pockets, washes well and the hood is a bonus when it is windy. It does run a bit large, but would accommodate a sweater or two layers underneath.

Loved the Tropic Blue but...
Ordered 1X. FIT was OK but drawcord is placed too high above the waist for my liking. Sadly will return.

Get the older version of this parka while you can!
If you can possibly buy the older version of the Polartec Aircore 200 Parka, get it while you can. The newer version lacks the handy sleeve zipper pocket (I use it for pocket tissues), the ribbon zipper pulls, and seems to be more poorly constructed and looks unflattering on. I bought two in Iron Heather & Tropic Blue. The parka washes beautifully and resists pet hair. Despite the size chart, the XL is a lot tighter than the 1X version.

Pretty color, I got blue. I have this jacket from past seasons that I have worn often and enjoyed. I thought I'd enjoy another. Guess not. This jacket is magically tighter that my other jacket...way tighter. Quality is not as nice as the older jacket. I will return it.

Love this fleece!!
I debated which color to get but ordered the Ivory and love it! It fits great...1X is very genorous for hippy figure. Goes with everything and I have gotten several complements already! Love the longer length and may even order in another color if still availabe.

I like this coat because it's long- so it covers my bum -but ends 2/3 up my thigh so movement is easy. I'm warm blooded so all I wear is a turtleneck under. People who chill easily would need an undershirt as well. I have 2- one that I wear for my walk every day and another that I use for going around town. I wait for the sales and always get a good deal.

Great quality I expect from Lands End. 2x fit me well esp through the bust where I am a bit larger than most. Warmer than I expected.
Fit is perfect. Love the color and it is soooo soft. Love the longer length that keeps my tush warm.

Parka was too tight around arm hole area.
I read the recent reviews on this product and bought it anyway. Now I regret it and must send it back. The jacket arm holes around the arm pit area were so tight they were uncomfortable. There is no way you could wear a sweater or sweatshirt underneath. My mother has this same jacket she bought about 2 years ago and it is not manufactured this way. Her jacket is great. I don't know why Lands End changed the cut of this jacket, probably to save money because the sleeves would be smaller, but I can tell you it was a big mistake. I am not happy with their quality and may not buy anything in the future.
