Comments about Women's Chalet Down Long Coat:

Its a nice coat but seemed to lack usual high quality finishing loose threads etc. Pockets not really deep enough. Also sizing is either too small or too big. I am a size 12 so if I opt for a small 10-12 I cant wear jumpers etc. underneath but a M 14-16 is much too big. I got this for half price would not have paid more!

      This washes AND tumble dries like a dream. I have had one before but unfortunately I burned it and it has a hole in the sleeve. It is much admired for the colour (maroon) but I like the petrol/teal better.

      Comments about Women's Chalet Down Long Coat:

      I like it but I was disappointed when it got soaking wet at the first shower, the outer shell is too thin and the feathers are popping out of it.
      I think the fit is perfect and it looks good, I love the combination of black and light blue, I wish it was longer though, I was looking for a 120cm long.
      This is an item to make you feel warm not "hot" so it doesn't really need to make you feel tall or fit, it has to be WARM! Which it is, but it could be better with a thicker outer shell.

      Comments about Women's Chalet Down Long Coat:

      I had two of these coats for over ten years, washed twice a year and absolutely lovely, could still be wearable although after all this time, which you would expect not quite so warm. New coats are not of the same quality, harsh outer fabric that makes a noise every time you move. I am usually a ten, sometimes 12 on cheaper makes, so I ordered the 10/12 and far too tight for this type of coat. The 14/16 would be too big. Shame things have to change! However the service for sending back was very good.

        Comments about Women's Chalet Down Long Coat:

        I haven't worn the coat yet as its still quite mild. I think it will be useful for really cold weather, and also for walks in the winter months. It feels fabulously warm and cosy for cold days. I didn't find it too bulky - considering its a duvet style coat. Can't comment on whether it retains its shape or how it washes. I chose the "petrol teal" colour which I would describe as dark green.

              Comments about Women's Chalet Down Long Coat:

              Really disappointed and annoyed. The changes to the design are all for the worse and have ruined a nice coat. The fit is absolutely awful, I would say at least one full size out. I have one from last year in a size down yet it's the same size as the new one which is supposedly a size larger. The chest is small and pulling, while the arms are extremely tight and unflattering- think sausages and you get the idea. Being so tight, I overheated very quickly on the arms and chest. There is no way I will get a jumper under it.

              It also feels lighter weight/less warm than my one from last year as if it is not as well filled.

              The colour is not petrol at all but a forest green.

              Will cost a fortune to send back so looks like I am stuck with it. Grrr.

                  Great quality; but the fit was atrocious.
                  It was tight - and pulled in at all the wrong places.
                  I looked like a joint of meat with string tied around it!! - ghastly.
                  Coat returned.

                    Good quality coat, light to wear, yet very warm. Came in a choice of colours, I chose the plum as I love a bit of colour, but wanted a practical shade that wouldn't need washing every time I wore it!
                    Nice design, maybe not for special occasions, but for everyday wear, work, shopping or walking the dog, it'll keep me toasty warm!
                    Should keep most of the rain out too!
                    I particularly like the length as some are just longish jackets, this is a proper COAT!
                    I bought it with a discount so I'm even happier!

                        A:

                        Firstly, let me say that we are very aware of the issues in the feather and down industry which are primarily 'living plucking' and 'force feeding' which accounts for about 1% of the world's feather production.

                        Being aware of it we do take measures to eradicate the chances of it being used by our vendors. Our feathers are a by-product of the meat industry so there is no live plucking in the process. However, until the down and feather industry introduce a "chain of custody" process (as we have in paper), no retailer can give a 100% guarantee where all of their feathers have originated from.

                        So, an honest answer to your question: we are opposed to it, we are being vigilant and selecting vendors who we believe have a better control over their supply chain, but as of today there is no certified process or means to give 100% guarantees.

Although not elasticated, they contain 5% spandex to make a stretch fleece knit material. I hope this helps. However, for any further assistance, please call us on 0800 220 106.
