A big thank you to Kohl’s for sponsoring this post.
I’ve been on the hunt for a cozy and really warm coat for our visits to Vancouver, and I hit the jackpot online last week. I zeroed in on Lands’ End for these warm coats because I know the quality is very high, and the prices are always great at Kohl’s.
I love to partner with Kohl’s because women have varying budgets, and I know great style is available at all price points. Kohl’s carries an exclusive selection of quality merchandise from brands you know and trust. They’re famous for their amazing sales and deals that save you money on everything from women’s fashion to elevated home decor.
I know I need a coat that’s water-resistant because it rains a lot in the Pacific Northwest. That’s why everything is so lush and green! I spotted lots of women and men wearing these very long puffer coats on my last visit, so this long, down coat caught my eye immediately.
It’s available in four colors in sizes X small – XL Tall. I love this navy because it’s light enough not to be gloomy on a dark day and is a very pretty shade of blue. Some navies are so dark they might as well be black. It has a water-resistant shell and hyperdry, 600 power down fill, with a temperature rating of -45° to -13° Fahrenheit. I’m not used to the cold, so this seems perfect for me.
It’s designed to hit mid-calf but is longer on me, which is fine with me because I’m not used to cold weather and want all the coverage I can get for my daily walks. It has convenient zippered side vents to raise for ease of movement, plus the front zipper also raises from the bottom if the weather isn’t frigid.
I just love the look of the faux-fur trimmed hood, and it’s removable if you don’t need it. I ordered a small and a medium to compare because I figured I might need room to layer. It turns out I do prefer the medium.
Next, I found this petite down waterproof long winter coat. It comes in three colors, sizes XS petite – XL petite and the regular length version is here. I chose this gorgeous teal which will certainly be bright looking on a gray, rainy day. It also has a 600 power down fill, plus a cozy sherpa fleece lined hood. In fact, the entire body has a fleece lining.
A placket covers the front zipper which keeps out more of the elements and is always a good idea in waterproof coats. There are velcro straps to snug up the sleeves and multiple pockets both inside and out. It also has lower side snaps to open for ease of movement. The hood has a serious closure under the chin so I feel like this offers maximum protection.
There’s an interior bungee cord at the waist, so you can snug it up and give the silhouette some shaping. This hood does not remove. Although the temperature ratings are similar between these two coat, this one seems to be better for blustery weather because of the exterior fabric and detailing.
Here’s the same waterproof down coat in black in a small petite. It also fits well, but I’d feel pretty stuffed into it if I was wearing a heavy sweater. Quite frankly though, I can’t imagine needing a heavy sweater under this coat.
