    This jacket is ideal for walking. It resists wet muddy paws and keeps me warm and dry in the most inclement weather. A most practical design, and long enough to keep my lower regions really cosy.

      Comments about Women's Original Squall® Parka:

      I bought this Parka to replace my 15-year old Squall jacket, which is on its last legs, for walking dogs and yard work with the horses. It is very light, cosy warm, completely waterproof and comfortable. It has several handy pockets (not as many as my old jacket, but enough) so there is a place for everything. The double ended zip is a very useful improvement on the last Squall I had.

      My only down side is that, as usual, the Lands End colour choices are a bit crude and not even remotely fashionable. I chose Red because I like to show up when I am out and about, and it's a bit too coral to be right. But I really don't mind because so much else about the jacket is spot on.

        Was worried this would look frumpy, but it doesn't, especially with skinny jeans and wellies or boots! Lightweight but snug and warm. Am assuming totally waterproof, as with previous Lands End coats, but it hasn't been tested in the rain yet. Teal is a lovely colour. Love the snug fleece hand warming pockets; loads of other useful pockets too and a good hood. I don't think it feels cheap in the details, as some others have said, and I am quite sensitive to that. Feels really well made.

                Comments about Women's Original Squall® Parka:

                I chose this coat because I wanted something warm and weatherproof for the school run. I am really pleased as it is more stylish than I expected, being nicely fitted and not too bulky. I am a UK 10-12 and the small size is perfect. A bulky jumper might make it feel tight across the shoulders but it is so warm I don't expect to need one. Another plus, while restraining 2 under 5's in morning traffic and rain, is the hood which is lined with fleece giving it some stiffness so it doesn't blow back or fall forward like my last coat did. Lots of pockets so no need for a bag - another bonus for me.

                    Great parka for rainy, cold days without looking bulky. Bought an arctic type coat last year for walking in the worst of the winter weather but it was too warm, heavy and generally not very practical. This parka has been excellent-fitting perfectly, keeping out the rain and cold as well as looking stylish.

                      I'm a long-standing Lands End customer and was looking forward to wearing this, but the quality is not what I expect from Lands End. It looks as if the manufacturers have skimped on details to produce a garment at less cost to them and it shows! e.g. the velcro cuffs have thin strips and don't look sufficiently tight or durable; the zip fastenings look cheap and the fleece lining in the pockets feels cheap. The outside of the jacket has a shiny and thin nylon-ish look to it which compares poorly to my current waterproof (another make) which was much cheaper. I was expecting a robust garment that could withstand several rigorous winters on the east coast of Scotland but sadly this is not it.

                          A:

                          Both these parkas fall into our ‘warmest’ category for outdoor wear. The squall parka (style 419352) is suitable for wearing in temperatures as low as -20° to -5° Fahrenheit whereas the insulated version (style 419343) can be worn in temperatures of -35° to -5° Fahrenheit. The high and low temperatures associated with each rating represent a comfort range you can expect the garment to perform well in. All our ratings are based on wearing typical cold weather clothing underneath the coat.

                          It is difficult to get colours right on the website as they will alter depending on the screen settings. The Wild Cherry however is described as a 'bright warm red'.

                          A:

                          It would not be easy to remove the fleece from the inside of the handwarmer pockets as it would involve unpicking the seams, and access can only be gained through the pocket, not from the inside of the coat. You are more than welcome to order the coat to have a look, and return it for a full refund if the pockets are not suitable.

                          There is one zip pocket in the inside, which is located on the chest at the left hand side. Our outerwear has been styled to fit usual winter layers underneath and as a guide the medium (UK 14/16) measures 46.5 inches around the chest.

                          We recommend that you close the fasteners of the coat, wash on a warm setting and don’t use a fabric softener; do not tumble dry, iron or dry clean.

                        Please can you tell me about the waterproofing qualities of this garment - is it showerproof only, and is it the sort of material you have to use re-waterproofing product on it after a while? Many thanks

                          This Parka is waterproof with sealed seams. To retain the waterproof properties and avoid the need for reproofing please follow the washing instructions.
