Women's Quilted Insulator Jacket
It is adorable on the model, but I wonder how many clothespins are used in the back to give it a shape. It has no tapering, so rather than looking cute and sporty, I look like the Great Pumpkin.

This coat was too big with no shape.
I like the light weight it would be perfect for in the car. Boxy fit that was too big and the cuffs were huge. I am sending this one back.

great jacket, please offer it again
I got this jacket last year and had no idea that I would love it so much. I was disappointed to see it not being offered again this year. I do not like epaulets on my shoulders, so I do not like the other quilted jackets. I love the style of this one, and would like to purchase more in other colors. The jacket could use slightly better/bigger pockets. Otherwise, it is great-- very comfortable.

My Go to Jacket
This jacket is lightweight, but warm. I ordered a small in black, normally wear a size 6-8 in Land's End & it fit great, with room enough for sweater or sweatshirt. Good length on sleeves & washes well too.

Runs large & longer that picture
Starting with the positive, I love the color I ordered (pumpkin). But, it runs big. I'm 5'5"/140lbs and medium is too big. Fits ok across shoulders but too big around middle (baggy vs the trim look in picture), sleeves are too long & jacket hits below my butt, not at hip. I'm reordering in small and petite medium. Hopefully one will work because I love the look & weight.

The jury is still out
I love the look of this jacket and had been wavering about buying it for months. I finally jumped when it went on sale and bought the pumpkin color. It's very pretty, but the fit issues on the jacket made it a disappointment after the wait. I checked their size chart and per my measurements I ordered a 1X but the jacket is huge! The sleeves are especially roomy. The fit is nothing like the picture, which shows a trim fitted jacket. This jacket is boxy and baggy and has no shape at all. I am trying an XL next to see if sizing down cures the fit issues. We'll see when the smaller size arrives what the verdict is - the jury is still out.

Five Boats for Me!
I've read other reviews and some commented on this coat not fitting as trim around the waist as pictured, well, having worked in retail my guess is the coat was clipped out of sight on the model as that was always done in the store I worked at. That aside, it's a great fit for my 5', 3" frame and a not so slim middle any more, so I am very happy to have found my size in the color I wanted and at a good price. I live in a desert climate and heavy coats are a no go so I look forward to using this coat in the coming months ahead. Being light weight with good warmth is a rare but valuable combination. Enjoy!

Nice with a couple of reservations
I ordered this jacket at full price based on the shaping, the length and the style. It fit true to size for me (PXL) and I liked that it had nylon lining in the sleeves - so much easier to put it on over a sweater or fleece. I have only started wearing this since the beginning of April - it just wasn't warm enough for our Canadian winter, especially this year (I've been in head-to-toe LE down for the last 5 months). There are 2 things that bother me about this jacket, though: the snaps are too far apart allowing cold breezes to get in, and the slash pockets have no depth and are useless unless you have a large set of keys to weigh the pocket down. I was willing to put up with the pockets until one of my favourite leather winter riding gloves disappeared somewhere between the bank and my car. Oh well, lesson learned.

fabulous if you get the size right
this review is really in response to the one below mine as I'm also 5'9", weighing about 165 lbs. I had ordered this jacket in L, thinking I didn't want it to be too small. When it arrived, it fit like the lady from Canada is stating. It was just too big. Thankfully, the jacket fit a friend of mine perfectly so I knew what it should look like. She took it and I ordered me one in M in navy again and another one in pumpkin that was on the NQP counter for a lot less. Both jackets arrived yesterday and fit perfectly. They are soooo light, yet warm. They'll be great for travelling also. Just throw on in your luggage and your weight allowance won't go up.
