I was recently given the opportunity to review the Sport Squall Parka for my son Ethan. Of course, I said yes. I mean, who would turn down Land’s End? Their products are some of the most fabulous things I’ve put my hands on.
Upon arrival, Ethan tore into the package like it was Christmas. He couldn’t wait to try on the coat! Once we got him into the coat and zipped it up, he began noticing the features. He was in love the many pockets, as they were perfect places to hide his “seeds” and he was especially impressed by the hood of the coat.
Land’s End has always impressed me for their great quality, but also because of their attention to small details. Though you cannot see it in this picture, their is a seam of reflective material on the hem, which is completely genius. Especially when making coats for children.
Living in Michigan, I can tell you that in the couple of weeks since this coats arrival, we have gotten a great deal of use out of it and so far I have only found one downside. Those pockets? They are a little too good at doing their job. My son is absolutely in love with the storage capacity. He can fit more rocks in those pockets than a farmer finds in his fields. And though the price is a little bit higher at approximately $70, I would say it is well worth every penny.
