Lands' End Outerwear for the Whole Family

One year ago, this Lands' End Quilted Down Parka became one of my winter wardrobe staples.  Because it is warm, hooded, water and wind resistant, and is in a neutral color, I would say I wore this coat far more frequently than any other outerwear in my closet (and I own quite a few).

When I purchase a coat, I expect it to last for many years.  Since I take very good care of my outerwear, I feel I should be able to wear it for up to ten years, with the exception of a drastic weight change or a moth invasion.  When the temperatures here dipped below 50 degrees this fall, my down parka was the first coat I grabbed.  I was happy to find that it still looked great and was as warm as ever, even when I sat outside for nearly two hours for our son's soccer game.

Aside from the loss of a feather here and there, my down parka from Lands' End has held up wonderfully with zero signs of wear at the seams, lining, pockets, snaps, or zipper.  I fully expect to be wearing this coat for many more years to come, something I have come to expect from all of my family's Lands' End outerwear pieces.
