Women's Year Round Reversible Down Jacket
This jacket has an excellent fit. Perfect sleeve and hip length for my petite body, and I was looking for a jacket without a hood. I bought one about a year ago in blue and liked it so much I decided to order one in pink a couple of weeks later. Big mistake. Two weeks after I'd worn the blue one about four times the feathers began to pop out. I kept it, though, in hopes the initial shedding would stop. It did not. I only wore the pink one a few times last year and there was no shedding problem. However, when I began to wear it this fall the same thing happened! I've kept both jackets since they are the only super casual ones I own, but I do plan to replace them next year with a LE primaloft (my husband bought one of those this fall and loves it). I am usually a LE fan because its products are good quality and the prices are right for the level of quality. In fact I was pleasantly surprised by this fall's redesigned women's jeans which could easily pass for jeans twice the price. Too bad about those jackets!

Poor Zipper Quality
I love the style and fit of this jacket. The warmth is perfect. I ordered it in coral/brown which I just love! HOWEVER, after wearing it twice, the zipper went off the track when I reversed it. I was able to get it back on and it has not happened again, though I imagine it will. For that reason alone, I cannot recommend this product which is very unusual for me as I am so pro-Lands End!!

Stylish and not bulky
This jacket is stylish, not bulky, and the sleeves are long enough! It is appropriate and effective for chilly weather but will not be able to cut the cold in harsh Ohio winters. I love both of the colors and have gotten several compliments on it.

Very nice transitional jacket
I love this jacket, I live in MA and the spring/fall can sometimes be cold but not so cold that you need a winter coat but just something to keep the chill out. With a sweater this jacket is warm enough to go shopping in Wrentham or in Maine without feeling like you need much more. It's lightweight so that makes it even better.

Perfect Spring Jacket
I needed a jacket for the 45 to 60 degree days. Less than a winter coat, more than a wind breaker. This is perfect. Cozy and warm for those days. Super soft. Super light. And cute.

I love how light the jacket is but light also means flimsy. The zipper is cheap & always gets stuck on the fabric; a zipper pulley would be nice.

I like this jacket
I like the weight and color of this jacket. My only complain is that the collar of the neck is too much of a scoop neck. The neck line should be higher. You need a big scarf to keep the cold air from sneaking in.

Lightweight down "cardigan" jacket
I liked the idea of a lightweight down jacket to wear around town when a full blown down parka isn't necessary. You won't be wearing this jacket when it's cold and icy with blowing snow, but it will definitely keep you warm for the in between times.
As the other reviewer noted, there are no zippers on the pockets. I ordered my normal size & it is fitted; the sleeves are long enough for me. If you need them shorter, the sleeves can be folded back to expose the other color. I think this jacket is cute and slimming---not oversized or over puffy. Plus you can stuff it in the matching stuff sack & throw it in your bag. Warmth in a small, lightweight package.

Jacket is super light
I bought this for my teenage daughter (14 yrs old), who wanted a warm winter jacket that was super lightweight and fell at the hip. This is the jacket that fit that description and looked hip enough for a teenager to want it. :)
She loved it when she took it out of the bag. She thought that the pouch was also a neat addition because she can just stuff the jacket in the pouch for storing in her backpack or locker. She loves that it is super lightweight--no bulk at all and folds up into a small compact bag.
As a mother, I noted a few issues with the jacket. The description of the jacket indicates that there are hidden zippered pockets. The pockets, in fact, have no zippers. Since it is reversible, the pockets are not stitched to the inside of the jacket and one simply pushes the lining through to the opposite side depending on what color you want to wear externally. Makes sense when you want to reverse the color of the jacket.
From a practical sense, the construction of the pocket is of the same nylon that the jacket exterior is made of, which doesn't lend itself to holding anything more substantial than gloves or lip balm. I tend to put car keys or my phone in my jacket pockets. The fabric of the pockets doesn't appear to be strong enough to be able to hold the weight of those items and might tear easily if anything snags on it. I have a similar concern with the nylon fabric exterior of the jacket, but hope that it will hold up better than my initial impression. Time will tell...
