Women's Stadium Squall Coat
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!

Cozy but not bulky
I like the fit and the warmth of this coat. My favorite feature is the lack of bulkiness. I don't feel like a huge marshmallow when I wear it.

Best Winter Coat I've Ever Owned
I have 3 Squall coats - 2 long & 1 mid-length. Why?? Because they're warm, don't leak, fit perfectly, & did I say warm? Boston winters can be extremely cold, windy, & wet due to the winds & snow coming off the ocean. I commute into Boston by boat & have a mile walk to my office. Needless to say, a mile walk in zero degree weather is disheartening. But my Squall, a cashmere sweater & Tneck keep me warm. The hood fits over my hat so the wind doesn't get to my ears. The sleeves stay put - no cold air coming up my arms. Also, while shoveling snow, the mid-length moves with me. I'm not struggling with my Squall. Actually, when I shovel - I only wear a long sleeve T because the Squall keeps me warm. And I'm always cold. One more thing - 2 winters ago we had a huge blizzard & lost power for a week. The house got down to 31 degrees even with the fireplace going. I wore my Squall coat to bed with lots of covers, but was able to sleep well enough. If you can't tolerate the cold weather like me, then try the Squall. It allows you to layer, and since I'm always cold, a T & cashmere sweater & cords (all from LE) keep me warm enough to get through that mile walk back & forth to the dock. We all dread winter, but the Squall is reliable enough to get us through it. Just wish the Velcro would go - ugh - not a fan, but the warmth & fit of the coat make it tolerable. The Squall is a keeper!

Bought a black coat several years ago. It wears really well, washes great & the longer length really keeps the wind out & warmth in.
The coat came in red several years ago, PLEASE bring it back. Would love a second coat but only in the red.

Love It But Order Larger
I have had the parka version of this coat for years. I love it. I decided to order the coat length using the same size as the parka. It is clearly running small. Had to turn around and exchange it for a larger size. But buy the coat - just order a larger size than you would normally.

Excellent quality, great warmth and very weather-proof!
This is the third Stadium Squall coat I've purchased over the years, and I've worn them almost exclusively during our cold Manitoba winters. I often work in the north (north of 55°) and the temperatures often hit -40°C or lower - and folks, -40° is -40° in either C or F! The coat is roomy enough that I can wear a sweaters, etc. under them, the fleece lining in the hood and the pockets mean that even when the wind-chill is extreme I'm still able to be outside. The longer length protects my back and the back of my legs from the freezing temps, and the fabric is excellent for repelling slush and freezing rain/snow. I'm curious to see how the addition of a removeable hood works. Part of the effectiveness of the hood was that there was no seam or break in the fabric. But the coats wear extremely well, and I can wash them, which is a bonus. Looking forward to receiving my new one!

the color was ok
I purchased this particular coat 2 yrs ago and it wasn't like the the previous coat with same product number. The last one I purchased the Same size was ordered but was too tight pockets were not in correct position and the previous color I had before was not offered. Did not have the option to have the split at bottom for walking and this last one weight more but was not as warm as the first one I bought. Please bring back the other one then I will buy one . I still ware the first one and am going to feel sad that I won't be able to have another like this old one. I have purchased many Lands End clothes for me and my family and was surprised to be disappointed with the coat.

Fits like a sack, not as warm as expected.
I picked up the Squall parka and like it quite a lot, the weather resistant shell is great for that "might rain or snow or slush" kind of weather. I thought this would be good for colder, windier days with the longer length, but I wasn't all that impressed. The fit is not flattering, and I know that it's a winter coat but still, I have worn much nicer looking coats that kept me warm. The bottom section isn't lined as much as the top which was a bit disappointing. I'm not a big fan of the velcro closures instead of snaps, it kept velcro-ing shut so even if you use the bottom zipper to zip up a bit for leg freedom, the velcro flops right back into place right away. Also, the pockets are placed in an awkward place, like I had to put my arms too far back to comfortably tuck them in to the pockets while walking.
It is pretty wind resistant, and having the coat cover my thighs was nice, but it just wasn't as warm as I was expecting. I returned it for a down coat, which will hopefully do the trick.

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.

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 :)
