Why Do We Call It a Squall Jacket

Why Do We Call It a Squall Jacket?

Unless you live a pirate’s life upon the open seas, chances are the only Squall you encounter is our warm, insulated winter jacket with that durable windproof and waterproof nylon shell. When the weather threatens to ruin your well-planned day with tumultuous rains or blinding snow, grabbing for your beloved Squall jacket is almost second nature now, isn’t it? Not today, inclement weather. The Squall jacket has you covered.

But, did you ever find yourself asking, “ What is a Squall coat?” Today's the day you can find out.

Reminiscent of our nautical past, the word “squall” defines a sudden gust of violent wind bringing on storms of rain, snow, or sleet. Not exactly the most comforting of images, is it? But to us at Lands’ End, Squall has come to define dependable warmth for generations.

Lands’ End began in 1963, selling sailboat equipment for racing sailors. Although we have so many more options available now for nautical and cool weather clothing, we haven’t lost our maritime roots. Our modern-day Squall jackets are proof of that. They’re specifically designed to keep you insulated without overheating to protect you from all kinds of inclement weather situations. We keep you stylish and cozy from heavy rain to sleet or hail and a mountain of snow.

Just take a look at the women’s Squall 3-in-1 waterproof winter long coat with a hood. It’s the epitome of fashion meets function. Available in classic cool weather colors like black, baltic teal, and rubellite, this is sure to be the Squall® of your dreams. The warm, quilted inner jacket comes in various sizes, from petite to regular to tall and everything in between. You’ll feel so cozy in the fully adjustable hood and deep pockets.

If you prefer that classic look of women’s winter coats and still can’t quite get rid of your down jacket, try something different with our women’s Squall® down insulated winter coat with a hood. The coat is made with 600 fill power down and designed with flattering down quilt lines. The attached hood has bungee adjustments for a just-right fit to keep the snow and wind out of your face. The water-resistant shell and waterproof sealed seams on both the hood and shoulders will keep you dry during wet days. Plus, the zipper with a snap storm flap keeps warmth inside. Talk about the best of both worlds!

Pick up some kids’ outerwear for the little ones that you love. Girls will love their own waterproof insulated winter parka. They'll be able to choose from fun patterns like soft multi-tie-dye or pastel colors like Irish Rose/Meadow Mauve. So many features are packed into our kids’ Squall waterproof iron knee bibs. It’s time for bundle-up 2.0, and we’ve made bundling up easy for all the kiddos.
