Warm in Chicago winters and washes beautifully
I got this jacket in March 2013, on sale at an unbeatable price. It's an orange color that was discontinued, I suppose it wasn't that popular. However my child loves this jacket. I chose it because of its length, it covers past her mid thigh. This is it's greatest feature. I bought it on the first weeks after moving to Chicago, where winters are not mild. The down filling of this jacket keeps my child very warm, it's zero bulky so she can move freely, and it washes beautifully. I have washed it as often as once a week and it still looks good as new. This is the second winter we use it, and I'm pretty sure we'll be able to stretch its wear to next year as well. Polar vortex? Meh. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Good warm coat but does not close at the neck
I ordered this coat last year on sales at the end of the season. It looked very good. When we put it on this year , I realized that the zipper does not go all the way up to the neck, it leaves a lot of space on top leaving the neck totally exposed. We had to sew on a scarf to tie down and cover the neck. Otherwise it is very warm and well fit. I would recommend Land's End to change the design and have the closure on top.

I bought this jacket for our 2 girls age 6 1/2 and 9 years old for our trip to Tahoe, CA.
Tahoe was on the 20s and it was very cold but this jacket kept them warm with light layers. It was packable, light and easy to wear. For our 6 1/2 years old who is tall and normally wear size 8 and ordered size 7-8 (believe it's big girl size S?) and came too big. For my 9 years old ordered size 10-12 and came very big but they wore it as we didn't have time to reorder before the trip. Girls loved it.
When we came back from the trip I washed them in our front loading washer/dryer and came out beautifully as before. Just look at drying instructions. I was surprised how beautifully came out after the home wash. Love this jacket.

Buying a second
I just had to take the time to write a quick review after reading the last few on this coat. We are in the Northwest and experiencing some of the coldest days on record and yet my daughter is warm. So warm in fact, that I am ordering a second one for next year. She even complains that she is a bit too warm sometimes and, she isn't a warm bodied person by nature. I had to wash it yesterday from continual wear on a five year old and it washed up beautifully. No issues - very easy. I am not sure if this coat has changed since we purchased it last year based on the reviews but we are very satisfied with the one we have and are going ahead with a second for next year. I look forward to passing it down to our second child as well.;

Ordered the pink color, should read the previous review before I order, the pink is the SHOCKING NEON PINK, cannot even look at it for long, good point you will always be able to identify your child amongst hundreds and thousands of children because of this color. Actually the design and fitting is quite ok, here comes another problem, I understand it's down parka, but no need to smell like the stinky duck farm in order to prove that, it really smells, because I am the customer from abroad, not able to return it with free shipping, no choice have to keep it, trying to put some mild fragrance paper in the dryer in order to get rid of the awful smell, don't know whether it works. Disappointed on this item, it's the only thing I can say.

Thin as can be and NO warmth at all!!!
Just received this coat today and was seriously disappointed at how thin it was. Maybe this coat was tested for a mild Floridian winter, but this coat will not keep your child warm for a cold northeast winter. I have no idea about the down count in this coat, but basically all I could feel when I felt this coat was the outside and the lining and NOTHING in between, so basically just 2 THIN layers. I was really hoping to purchase a warm coat for my daughters, this year, but I don't think I will find what I am looking for at Landsend, this year.
I wish Landsend's did not offer DOWN in their coats. I should have learnt my lesson from a few years back, when I bought myself a down coat from Landsend, washed as directed, drying it with tennis balls in the dryer. The coat was never the same. In this coat, however, I can't even feel any type of filling, just the outside layer and the lining.
Please. Please, just make this style coat or parka, like you did for adults. But use the lining that you used in the Landsend" insulated SQUALL Parka" that I have had for years. Those coats were the warmest things ever. And I know winter has officially set in when I finally wear it. In the down coats, the down just doesn't stay in place.
Otherwise, this children's coat is NOT for temperatures, under 60 degrees . The style has great potential. It just needs a serious improvement overhaul in the warmth department...

This is a great coat. I bought one for each of my girls. It is very warm and the best part is that is it long, unlike most girls winter coats these days. It is a very flattering cut, as well. My only complaint is that in the past Land's End has offered it in a bunch of colors. Last year there were many more options! This year, just TWO? COME ON, LANDS END! This is the best winter coat you sell! Give us some colors!

Really nice blue
We just got this coat so my daughter hasn't had a chance to wear it, it's only august. However, the color is very pretty. It's not shiny at all which in the picture it looked like it was. It's a mat finish. The little pockets and contast seams are very nice and stylish. She loves the coat. She really liked the soft liner in the inner arm openings. She is 7 about to be 8 in a few months. I ordered the big girl small and it fits very nicely, a little big, I even had to roll up the outer sleeves which is ok. It will definitely fit through this year and maybe next. I hope it's super warm we'll see!

Daughter thinks its a cool coat!
Personally I love the HOT HOT PINK coat for my toddler. Its a very light and warm coat but it does run big. My daughter is pretty petite so I hesitated based on other reviews of it running big and just went with her mesurements - I should have listened to everyone else. Its definitely big. I'm not returning it because they no longer have this color in a smaller size so it will serve for another year. So listen up... this coat runs big so go a size smaller.
