Wrap up for Winter with Lands' End






I've reviewed clothing for Lands' End before, and so impressed was I with it, I placed orders myself, so it was really nice that they asked me to review a snugly winter coat - for me this time!

I chose the Diamond Down Jacket, which is shown beautifully by their lovely model on the site.

But for here, you'll have to make do with this second-rate model.

Matchey-matchey

The coat is available in Angel Blue, Deep Amethyst or Pink Begonia which I opted for.  Super warm due to it's down filling it also has a water-resistant finish to keep you dry in that horrid drizzly mizzly weather we seem to be having.

I never remember to put a hat on so the hood with faux fur trim is a welcome addition when the winter winds pick up.

Say Hello Eskimo

Perfect for the nursery run; shopping and of course

Walking the dog

What do I like most about it?  Well, apart from the undeniable warmth it gives, I love the shape and inner draw-cord which means you still have a waist and unlike some coats you're not left like some shapeless Michelin man.



The pocket linings are so incredibly soft, it's like slipping your hands into little pillows.  They are lined with the softest fleece I've ever felt and there's also a little internal pocket for a handwarmer which is a nice touch.

It's very easy to move in and feels light unlike other winter coats.  See how versatile it is!

and for the boys



Negatives?  To be honest I'd have preferred it a teensy bit longer to cover my derriere, but I have that problem with a lot of jackets and jumpers - guess I have a long body.  There is some feather loss as they do occasionally work their way to the surface and poke through the fabric - like you get on a duvet.  I have to be careful not to wear it with leggings and Uggs and big gold hoop earrings or I'd end up looking a bit Bianca Jackson.

But overall, I do love this coat.  The temperature has dropped here over the last couple of days and I'm already feeling the benefit of the down filling.  I think it's going to keep me snug through whatever the great British weather throws at me.

Sponsored post: I was sent this coat free of charge for the purpose of this review, however any opinions expressed are my own and are honest.

  3. Oh I'm so pleased you've just reviewed this, perfect timing! I've had a corner folded on their catalogue for a couple of weeks unable to decide whether the coat will actually be as warm (& as stylish) as they say. I might go for a longer length one though.
