Women's Stadium Squall Coat
I bought this coat anticipating winter trips to Philadelphia and eastern Europe. Little did I know that my Southern town was in for its coldest winter in 15 years! It held up great in Philadelphia with highs in teens and twenties, but also came in handy right here at home. An excellent purchase for me.

Warm, Strong, many good features
the only thing I don't like so far is the velcro tabs on the flap. they automatically fasten and get in the way of fastening the zipper and unfastening it. so I bought some velcro and cut the tabs to length and covered each one and now, I can always go back to using them, but there is no impediment when I don't need them!
tough outer shell, windproof, very comfy and warm with great and many pockets and hood!

Honey Bunny Betty Boop!
Really comfortable and warm!
The monogram turned out really special. I spent the money on this really expensive squall, I wouldn't say it's worth $300. I wasn't going to pass up this chance to get something of this excellent quality and opportunity for a monogram. I really fit nicely in this squall (Petite - Large, 14-16), with room for a bulky sweater and I'm curvy (180 pounds, so not too curvy), with a small pooch.
I will always cherish this squall and my relationship with Lands End - I love your stuff!!!
A must buy! Do it now and get a personalized monogram to make it more special :)

No good for fit in shape people
I was very excited to receive this coat when I placed the order online. I'm an active female and standard weight for my size. So I order an xsmall. The coat is huge. You could fit 2 people in it. It doesn't matter how warm it if its so big that the cold drafty air will be getting it. Perhaps you need to size your coats on new fits models land end or start making xxxsmall and xxsmall. Which come on shouldn't exist no one is a 0 or below. Stop making sizes that are bigger and labeled smaller than they are too make people feel good about being in a smaller size! I will never purchase from you company again

Very good but
Great warmth and keeps you dry. Nice that the hood is removable. The inner knit cuffs are a good enhancement, keeping the arms warm. However, the coat is cut smaller than the earlier version. Don't care for the snaps on the pockets because they make it look less dressy. The zipper goes down too far, making it more difficult to zip (than the old version).

Great coat for rainy, not too cold climates like the Northwest!
This is a great raincoat, long enough to cover legs, hood fits well and does not block vision, velcro secures flap (over zipper), wrists, neck, etc. Lightly lined to fend off some cold, but is primarily for rain. Sometimes the zipper is a little tricky, but otherwise I love this coat! It's perfect for NW winters.

Coat is simply mah-velous!
So glad I bought this ridiculously warm coat! I got it so I could visit my daughter in the frigid regions of very upstate NY. I am testing out if I can move there and survive a winter after being spoiled by southern life. I haven't gotten to wear it up there yet, but this winter in NC has been something else, and I got to test it here one day when it was 21 degrees and snowing horizontally. I was sweating! I now feel prepared for the North Country. I have even figured out the 2 zippers. I wouldn't want to try zipping them both if my house was on fire but, under normal circumstances...well, it's not rocket science!
Looked everywhere before finding this at Land's End. Came on time, was packaged well, and made me an online Lands End customer.

I have a red squall coat which I bought several years ago.
I absolutely LOVE my RED coat and am complimented on it ALL the time. I wear it Fall, WINTER and Spring , even though I live in Canada - during the winter ,if it's really cold, as this year has been (-30 F on several occasions), I wear a down vest under it! I bought one for a friend a few years ago and her experience has been the same. i work in a store and recognized the same coat on a customer- when I said I had the same one, she replied that she bought hers 20 years ago. Anyway, I have another friend who fell in love with it, especially the RED colour, only to find out that it's only available in BLACK! Is there any way you could find a RED MEDIUM????

Nice & Toasty!
I really have enjoyed my super warm coat with these crazy arctic temperatures. Easy on and off; knit cuffs in sleeves keep the wind out. The only improvements I would make is to eliminate the velcro on the sleeves it takes away from the stylishness and are not needed. Also the pockets could be placed a little differently. Since the pockets are on the seam they are a little awkward, angled would be better and there is no need for the zippers they just scratch up your hands. Even with these distractions; I would highly recommend this coat to anyone who hates the cold!!! Even with these wind chills of -20; my walk to work is warm.

Great, warm coat that looks good too!
I had been reluctant to order a squall coat because I thought the fabric looked cheap. I was so pleased when I received my coat and found that the fabric is very nice. So far it has been waterproof - we haven't had any rain to test it in. I ordered the large because I am on the large side of medium and others said it ran small. It is fine and I have room to wear a warm layer between my tee and the coat. The only drawback is the velcro but I just covered up the two tabs at the neck that caught my scarf with strips of velcro loops. .
