    Comments about Women's Down Gilet:

    I was delighted to receive this as a Christmas gift, and it seems very well made and practical. However, it has clearly already been worn because there was a dirty tissue in the pocket and marks on the neck.
    For goodness sake! Does nobody check the returns?

        Love this down gilet as it is so light to go walking but keeps nice and warm and also it is dressy to go to work over a nice thick jumper. Seams are well stitched and it has a nice high collar to protect the neck. M size fits well a size 14 with not too chunky a jumper underneath. Love the colour choice too. Great quality/price.

          I have bought 4 of these gilets for myself and family members and we are all delighted with them. The colours are very cheerful and the fit is comfortable, though we all went up one size from our normal sizing, so that we could move well when they are zipped up. They are easy to stuff into a backpack and practical.

            another warm stylish gilet from Lands End. A bargain at a reduced price. I like the colour and look forward to wearing it throughout this winter. I find gilets very useful and this one is another good addition to my wardrobe.

                Comments about Women's Down Gilet:

                I have bought three of these. One to wear, one in the wash and a spare. I am very unlikely not to be wearing one throughout the winter both in the home and under a jacket/coat They are warm, easy to wear, very comfortable and with the range of colours there's one to suit almost every outfit whether smart or casual. The only snag about Landsend sizing is that it differs from other brands I wear so that I have to buy significantly larger sizes in this label. Having said that there's a good range of sizes for many products.

                I normally find that a medium in Land's End clothing is roomy and comfortable as I like my clothes loose. However this was far too small round the hips.

                  Got one of these for Mum and myself in the Tall. Mum is short but likes things a bit longer and I'm 5'8" so like them to cover as much of my bottom half as possible. These gilets are great; warm and durable and on trend. Very pleased.

                    I bought one of these for my friend for Christmas and her size fitted perfectly. I ordered two different sizes to try and NEITHER of them came anywhere fastening. I bought two of your Squall Parkas about 8 years ago and I checked the size before I ordered. They still fit fine. I also have T-shirts of yours which fit OK so I do not understand why the Down Gilet was such an appalling fit. I'd probably have lose enough weight to go down two sizes from my normal size to get it to fit. I wanted this to drive in as I find winter jackets bulky and uncomfortable for this.

                      Can Landsend guarantee that the down used in their coats and Gilets are obtained without cruelty ?
                      I understand that in some countries there is cruelty involved.

                        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.
