Women's Polartec Aircore 200 Pea Coat
Teal color is too bright
The reviewer who said that the teal waters is garish is on target. It is too bright for a traditionally styled jacket. The reviewer who said that the jacket bunched due to the double-breasting is also correct - because of the fleece fabric, the front of the jacket does not "move" so it tends not to lay as flat as a double breasted wool coat would. I am disappointed that, by the time I received the jacket, all the other colors are sold out in my size, so I will probably have to keep this one even though it is a bit too bright. Fit seems accurate.

Great coat but different from previous one
I have an older version of a similar coat from Land's End that I absolutely Iove. I was hoping this one would replace it but it is cut differently and does not fit me as well and I am planning to return it Overall, it is a very nice coat. I love these type of coats because they are warm, very lightweight and easily slides on or off due to the silky lining.

Perfect and nice looking Polartec jacket
I am very happy with my purchase. I am 5"3 and 137 pounds and the small petite in the wine color fit perfectly.

Perfect fit and really like the style
This pea coat fits better than expected. It's in fact, perfect. I also like the lining and the overall style. I never thought fleece could look and feel this good!

Excellent lightweight warmth
I love this fleece jacket. It has a very flattering shape and truly does look like a peacoat. I have worn it comfortably for the last few weeks in temperatures ranging from 55 degrees down to 28 degrees. I felt most comfortable in the 40 degree range, especially with a light sweater. Any colder than about 40 degrees and you might want to wear a heavier sweater and use a scarf. I wore it outside for three hours in 40 degree weather with an occasional light drizzle and felt comfortable. The lining definitely sets it apart from other fleece jackets. The red is a lovely, wine colored shade. I'm 5'4, 125lbs, and ordered a small regular sized coat. I felt the fit was perfect. Some others felt it was too short, I felt it was just right. It hits about mid-bottom for me. I'm strongly considering purchasing a second coat in a different color.

Well at first I was worried because I'm usually XL in shirts, and I've actually never bought "Petite" anything, but I followed the sizing guide (I'm 41in bust) so that would be a 16. Since they only have 14-16 (L) I chose that one. I'm glad I did because it fits me great, and the sleeves aren't too long. I'm pretty sure I have some room for a sweater underneath. I don't have a full length mirror but I think this makes me look a little bulky, but I do have to admit I am not skinny by any means. I've wanted a pea coat for ages because I white knuckled it through a winter wearing a hoodie, but I didn't want to spend too much on one. The material is soft and it's so cool that it's lined so it's easy to take on/off. I would have wanted a black one but I think the grey one looks classy and nice, I might buy the purple one just to mix it up. For reference, I am 5'4, 170lbs, 41in bust and 36in waist.

Fabulous, but only in the darker colours
I have had my eye on this coat for a while, and when I finally ordered it, I did run into problems. I firstly ordered the Teal Waters and Bright Cyan and Grey, but when they arrived, I decided the Teal and Cyan were just too bright and garish for my liking, but I loved the Grey...sadly it was faulty(marked an XS but it was more a M or probably a Large even. I knew the XS fitted as the coloured ones were perfect). So I had to re-order the grey but that parcel never arrived. I finally ordered another round before they totally went out of stock and received them today. The grey is a lovely flecked grey and it is so thick and snuggly, I can't wait to wear it out in the cold. I am certain it will be very warm as the even without the lining, the Termacheck 200 is toasty. I agree with others that these coats are too short - I ended up with the petite (as regular was sold out after all my problems) and it is a jacket, not a coat length, but I still love it. I heard they will not be doing this jacket again this winter and I am very disappointed as I would love to see other more winter-appropriate colours... a deep navy or rich bottle green would be terrific. I would also liked to have bought the grey again as a spare in Regular length which would be more flattering. I also agree it really needs a loop inside the neck to hang it by, and an inside pocket would be fabulous, although not essential. However, it's a great concept and a lovely snuggly warm jacket that just looks so much nicer than an anorak or zip up jacket on any day. Please bring them back next winter!!

I liked the look of the jacket.
I liked the look of the coat, but the double breasted look makes the jacket bunch up a little, still I like having a fleece that doesn't look like a traditional fleece jacket.

Great lightweight jacket
I bought a second one in blue because it's such a versatile between season jacket.
