Almost perfect

Comments about Women's HyperDRY Down Shimmer Long Coat:

I bought the Petite size XS in the Black Friday sale and I was pleased it fit me well as it's hard to find good petite size coats. I'm 5'1" size 8-10 and it comes down to just past my knees. Perfect length for wearing over dresses in winter which is what I was looking for. It's so warm I don't need to wear as much underneath. The quality is good, the feathers don't bleed everywhere like my old coat. I've worn it in the rain and it's ok for light showers but I think it would get soaked through in a downpour. I only wish there were more pockets because I don't like carrying a handbag and this coat doesn't have enough, just two zipped handwarmer pockets and one inside pocket that I wish was a bit deeper.

Comments about Women's HyperDRY Down Shimmer Long Coat:

Lands End petite used to fit me very well, but in recent years they've changed the cut, for the worse. I'm size 14 petite. Not size 12, but size 14. I need clothes with shorter arms and shorter legs, but the rest of my body is exactly the same as anyone else who's size 14. This coat (and another Lands End jacket I bought last year, which I decided to live with and kept) is just a bit too tight under the arms and across the shoulders and chest, ie more like size 12 than size 14. Also, the pockets are set a bit high for comfort, and the pocket material doesn't seem as durable as in previous coats.

Please, Lands End, note that petite doesn't mean smaller all round, just shorter arms and legs for shorter people - a petite 14 means a size 14 torso, and ought to fit round the torso the same as with any other size 14.

The styling of this coat is very nice, the shimmer finish and being nipped in a little at the waist means it's much smarter than most down coats, and I would have tried to swap this for a size 14 regular except for 2 things. First, the hood also doesn't fit well and falls over my eyes (without being adjustable at the back to fix this problem), whereas a similar long Lands End down coat I bought years ago was a perfect fit (with strong pockets), and at least once a year someone still comes up to me to ask where I got it from. Second, the delivery and return was a nightmare (see below). So, overall, I decided to cut my losses. If I buy a Lands End item again, I'll be trying Regular first.

This is a potentially great coat so I'd recommend it but if you're petite like me (ie normal size except for arms and legs), you may want to try the Regular first in your usual size - it may well be a better fit.

          Have only had the coat a couple of weeks so have not yet washed it. It is beautifully warm and comfortable and although a down coat, does not make one look like the proverbial Michelin tyre man. However, the colour I chose was Carbon which I assumed would be grey and it is actually greenish brown. However, I did not want any of the other colours and I love the coat, so I am accustoming myself to the colour and starting to like it better.

            I'm really happy with this coat, which is well made and warm. I like the fact that it has both zip and poppers.
            The finish isn't too shiny, which I worried it might be, and I like the dark blue colour. A good, solid everyday coat. Recommended.

                Comments about Women's HyperDRY Down Shimmer Long Coat:

                To qualify this review, I already have 3 (gray, brown, baby blue) long down coats from landsend one burgundy down shimmer parker and two other (silver & black ) styles of their long down coats, also a red bomber puffer down jacket from the last century and also not forgetting how many landsend down coats my family and friends have. I have been buying these down styles of coats from them for the last 20 years plus! They are all still wearable too.
                This latest coat has improved again in style durability feel and finish. It's like going from a shapeless box shaped coat to something I am proud to wear over casual or smart clothes!
                Where to start. The shape cut and stitching has given this a waist, the velvet on the neck part of the collar gives comfort, the hood had been shaped to protect but not to look a child out to play, pockets have zips to protect valuables and a popper on the inside pocket to keep in items. (Better than Velcro which ruined my tops) shimmer gives this an expensive finished look. I purchased this in carbon which to my delight was the perfect colour for me this time. I will mention that all my previous coats have washed like a dream, I then dried them with a few tennis balls in the tumble dryer.
                If you are looking at this review then you are considering this coat. Order and see for your self how lovely and comfortable and light and really warm this coat is.
                I will be not parted from mine. I have even taken my grey one to the Maldives when I went in the winter, knowing I would need it as soon as I got off the plane, i knew how light and how little space in my suitcase it would take. I have worn my baby blue one to Spain in early spring when the wind chill can be a bit much but the sun is lovely. I have worn mine to concerts in the summer because when the sun goes down and I have finished using it as a cushion to sit on it then protects me from the damp and chill in the vast open English countryside.
                To finish this review I give 10/10

                  Bring on the bad weather - I know I'll be warm enough! I tried a couple of cheaper versions from other retail sources, but you get what you pay for I guess and other down-filled coats felt very thin in comparison to this, and much shorter in length. I chose the "go with everything" black shade but feel it looks quite glam enough for work with dressed-up accessories.

                    Comments about Women's HyperDRY Down Shimmer Long Coat:

                    I've bought this for every day walking and commuting by train to work particularly when the weather gets cold and damp. Wanted something warm to wear over smart office dress etc. Also visiting Poland for a city break and wanted something warm, long and lightweight. I'm 5'7 and the coat comes just below my knee to the top of my boot. It is shaped so doesn't look too bulky and adds a bit of style. Size wise I bought the same size that I would from Next and it fits well and I would be able to wear a jumper underneath if required. Very happy with this so far.

                        It is almost impossible to determine where the coat will reach on you. We would advise the petite style for you as the sleeves may be too long in a regular fit.
                        We would imagine the coat should go past your knees as it is a long coat.
                        Although you would find it difficult to measure yourself, if there is a possibility of measuring a coat you already have, we can compare for you against both fits.

                        Hello, and thank you for your inquiry. Whilst I cannot really advise you as to the precise amount of down either garment, I can confirm that the HyperDRY coat contains more down insulation than the Commuter Down Long Coat.

                        This coat has been tested in temperatures as low as -40°C however this is when wearing winter layers. It would be suitable to wear in warmer temperatures without so many layers. It does also depend on the level of exercise that is being done.
