    Comments about Women's Softshell Parka:

    The rain rolls off this coat and it is warm but light in weight... just the right warmth for those in-between dates (10-16 C). Great value in the sale.
    The sizing is not over-generous but there's just room to add warmth with an extra layer underneath for cooler days. I rally like the fact that the sleeves are lined with silky material that means they slip easily over a jumper. Only drawback? The hood is ridiculously large and flops right over one's eyes.

      Lovely material which looks and feels good quality. Exchanged this for a more expensive coat which was not suitable for an east coast winter !, this is ideal although the zip seems a bit difficult to open

        Bought this because I wanted a lightweight, waterproof, jacket with a hood (I hate using umbrellas). This seemed to fit the bill; it fitted true to size, has good deep pockets, and is a practical length for a rain jacket. However as soon as I put the hood up it was hopeless – it came down to the tip of my nose! I've had this problem with other LE coats and solved it by removing the zip-off fur trim, but the only option here would have been to cut eye-holes in the hood. Plainly not practical,so I returned it. Might work if you have big hair.

          Comments about Women's Softshell Parka:

          Bought this for my mum as i have one myself which i am very pleased with, however i had to return it. The overall size was perfect but the hood swamped her and fell right down over her face. If this had featured a volume adjuster at the back of the hood as well as it's side adjusters we would have kept it, but a water resistant coat is useless if the hood is unfunctionable. Overall quality and style is good.

            Comments about Women's Softshell Parka:

            I am 5'7" tall and a UK size 10-12 with long arms and a long neck, i bought size S which fits perfectly. The fabric and style is smart casual. The hood is probably a bit generous for most people but fits me well, maybe designing it with a hood volume adjuster at the back would make it more useable along with its side hood adjusters. Overall this is an excellent coat.

            Prompt delivery and well packaged, the standard of service is always very good.

                Comments about Women's Softshell Parka:

                This coat is so useful, as I've found it to be completely waterproof. The rain just rolls right off. It's also warm because of the fleece lining, but not heavy. So it's a kind of Spring/Autumn coat. Wearing this, I can confidently go out when it looks like rain, and know I'll be dry and warm. The hood is the only problem, coming down so low over my eyes that it's hard to manage. I've tried pulling the drawstrings to tighten it up, but this doesn't help. I end up trying to fold back the front of it, but it falls down again!
                Anyway, another big plus is that this coat is incredibly slimming and flattering! Lovely fabric, hangs just right. Useful pockets too.

                        Our petite range is for ladies up to 5'3" and so you are right on the cusp! The sizing is the same, whether it is the regular or petite fit. The main difference is in the length of the body of the parka and the sleeves. The medium, for example, is 34⅛" in the regular and 32⅛" in the petite. The sleeves are also 1½ shorter. If you need any further guidance on the measurements, please call our free phone number 0800 220 106.

                        If you were to order the UK 14-16 (US: M) the chest measurement on this item would be 43 and a half inches compared to 41 inches on the UK 10-12 (US: S). We do tend to be generous with our sizing as we're aware people may want to layer. If you require further information, you're more than welcome to give us a call.

                        You cannot remove the hood it is attached. A Bungee Cinch is like a toggle with a clip lock mechanism which has an elasticated tie thread running through
