  • Water-resistant finish repels snow and wet
  • Two-way zip front lets you vent for movement

Time for an update? Our Shimmer Down Coat takes outerwear to the next level. Modern details include shaping darts, faux fur trim, angled pockets and zipped back hem vents. The fabric’s slight sheen adds dimension to the rich colours. But unlike some outerwear that’s all about looks, this coat combines style and substance. It’s made with extra-warm 600-fill power down and a water-resistant shell that fends off the elements. Hidden zip side pockets provide the storage space you want while keeping the front sleek and chic. Horizontal chest pockets keep items within quick reach. Shell is 64% nylon/36% polyester. 100% polyester lining. 80% down/20% feather insulation. Machine wash. Faux fur trim is 45% modacrylic/45% acrylic/10% polyester (remove faux fur trim and dry clean separately).

Approx. length in Regular size M: 92.5cm/36½"

      Comments about Women’s Shimmer Down Coat:

      I purchased the shimmer down parka coat at the beginning of winter 2013 and wore it every day to and from work until April 2014. I washed it at 40 deg C and tumble dried it last week ready for the winter again and it looks as good as the day I purchased it. Now thinking of buying another one. It's a great fit for curvy people like myself and so warm. Word of caution: you need to tumble dry this jacket otherwise the down will clump. I washed mine at home and took it to a launderette to tumble dry it. The jacket keeps you dry in the occasional shower but it's not waterproof.

            Warm, stylish, comfortable, great quality and good length. Unfortunately the sleeves were too long and the hood was too large when up so I returned the coat.

              Great fit, relatively light weight but great warmth. During wet and wildly weather I now leave my umbrella at home - hood is fantastic and doesn't squash my hair as a hat does.

                    I use my raincoat and my lovely warm Landsend coat when I walk the dog. At this time of year it means they are usually muddy and in the process of drying out when I need to venture out in the foul weather for shopping etc. This coat is ideal for most occasions, and warm and weather-proof too. I love it!

                        Great fit, really nice to wear, just slips on and off easily
                        and keeps you warm and cosy. Best winter coat I have purchased in a
                        long time.

                            • Q:

                              Could you perhaps give me help on sizing. I have 35in bust but am 41 1/2 at thigh length and height 5'5'. I like both this model style and the parka style but find it difficult to find coats that do not swamp the upper body. Thankyou

                                A:

                                The garment measurements for both this coat and the parka (style 431985) are as follows:
                                Small UK 10/12 - Chest 42 inches - Hip 43.5 inches
                                Medium UK 14/16 - Chest 44.5 inches - Hip 46 inches
                                You may find that a style with a belt would work better for you. Our Modern Down Coat (style 419272) in size small is also a little larger on the hip at 42 inches

                                Put some (3-4) tennis balls in with the coat in the tumble drier and all the feathers fluff up again!

                                The feathers and down will 'clump' together during the washing process. We advise tumble drying with dryer balls or two clean tennis balls as this help to re-plump the filling.

                              Can you please tell me the UK size of the 16/18. I need the room across the chest more than anywhere else.
                              Also what is the weight of the coat I am looking for warm and light.

                                I would recommend the tall range (style 431979) in medium which is suitable for height 5' 8" - 5' 11" and equivalent to a UK 14/16. As a comparison for you the chest measurement on this size is 44.5 inches and the large (UK 16/18) measures 48 inches.

                                The length is measured from the centre back point (effectively where the labels are in the collar) to the bottom hem. Petite small measures 33.5inches.
