        Comments about Women's Squall Insulated Parka:

        Casual wear, going shopping and for cycling in. This is a warm and snuggly coat that will be very useful in the cold weather. I am actually quite cold blooded and have already worn it this October without getting too hot! Love the Wild Cherry colour, but I find the hood a bit too big and the zip can be a little fiddly and I sometimes have to put my glasses on to do it up, but it's OK. A zipped inside pocket would have been useful. The main con is that it is very bulky and the draw cord doesn't seem to improve the shape much so I feel a bit like a tellytubby when I wear it. This coat is practical and functional but not very flattering. Normally I buy a size 10 to allow for extra winter layers, but I bought this in XS Petite and it still seems too big.

              Bought this as a birthday present for my sister, she hasn't got it yet. Not as good as the one I've had for two years. The sleeves are much longer than a petite person needs and the narrow Velcro on the sleeve does not help to tighten the sleeve - it's not in the right place. Still hoping my sister will like it for the winter.

                Lovely and warm as promised BUT and it's a big but I hate the vile zip so much so much I wont be buying any more coats from you (have about 5 currently).The difficulty I have trying to zip it up puts me off wearing it. Would you like some of them back? They are really well made and last for ages and the delivery service is very good too...no, can't tempt you.

                This has been carefully thought out and well made. A bit heavy, I won't aabe throwing it on for a short ride to the shops, but it will be great in really bad, cold weather.

                  The only thing I would change is to make the top pockets larger. My gloves keep falling out of them unless I'm careful to stuff them well in.

                        I was looking for a really warm country coat for the winter, and this nearly fitted the bill – toasty, water- and wind-proof (also a real bargain in the sale). But the collar too high for my short neck, coming up well over my chin, and when I tried to fold it back (as on the model) it was too stiff to lie flat and looked like a pair of huge wings either side of my face. Also there were too many velcro fastenings – such an irritating noise! So back it went and I bought the Down Chalet Coat instead.

                          As regards sizing, would this coat be on the more generous side or is it true to size? Am typically 12/14 size, but wondering if the 10/12 would suit. Thanks.

                            The sizing of the squall insulated parka is quite generous. The US size small (UK 10-12), has a garment chest measurement of approximately 45 inches, suitable for a body chest measurement of 35-36 inches. The US size Medium (UK 14/16) has a garment chest measurement of approximately 47 1/2 inches, suitable for a body chest measurement of between 37-38 1/2 inches.
