Penfield® Kasson Parka Jacket

Penfield® Kasson Parka Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute I really love this jacket and cannot wait to wear it! The ONLY negative thing that i can say is that it is TOO fitted around the hips. With this being the case i had to opt for the medium instead of the small. I am 5'6 and weigh about 135 pounds. Also the sleeves are not too long so you will never have to worry about cuffing them (if anything the small's sleeve length might have been too short on me).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, consider size issues I love this jacket. Got a burgundy in the spring when it was backordered and it was worth the wait. I wanted a lightweight jacket that could still withstand the elements (rain, cold winds) and this is perfect. After reading the reviews, I sized up to a Small and am glad I did. For reference, I am 5'5" and around 115 pounds and usually wear an XS in Madewell clothing. My hips are the largest part of me, and that is where this coat fits the tightest, so I am very pleased with the Small. I can layer underneath comfortably, and cinch at the waist for a more body conscious fit. It's a coat that will last me for years and years, has many functional elements #hood, quality fabrics, pockets, double zipper# that do not come standard on most cheaper, contemporary jackets, and is stylish to boot. Oh, as others have said, the zipper can be difficult. Just takes a few wears to get used to. It's not flimsy but it just needs to be lined up correctly as it's a double zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size up! This jacket is so great - very stylish, flattering, and practical at the same time. It's pretty light weight, and is perfect for fall weather. Like other reviewers, the jacket ran a little small on me. It is narrow in the hips, so when you sit down the jacket has to come up over your hips (leaving your bottom on whatever cold surface you may be sitting on). I'm 5'7", 135 lbs - originally bought a small, but exchanged it for a medium, which fits much better and doesn't have this problem. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Rain Jacket This is a terrific, well-made parka jacket; it was clearly made to last a long time. It's more heavy duty than a windbreaker but not so much that it's bulky. It rolled up and fit nicely in my carry-on Longchamp for travel, with plenty of space left in the bag for my other things. I especially love the details on this jacket - many of which you cannot see just from looking at the pictures. For instance, the pockets where you put your hands are fleece-lined, which was a pleasant surprise and a major perk! The zipper is a bit cumbersome, but the buttons/snaps are nice. If you are on the fence about this jacket, buy it before it's sold out! I know this will be in my closet for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight! Great detailing! I absolutely love this jacket, it's perfect! The detailing is amazing. I love the zipper, pockets, plaid lining etc.... It fit a little bigger than I expected but I don't think a smaller size would have made a difference ( I usually wear my jackets super fitted). I purchased navy in xs .... I've owned this jacket for less than a month and have received several compliments.... I'm definitely happy with this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for tough weather Not extremely warm, but it is great for wind and rain. The zipper is a little tough, but the snap buttons are really convenient and I use those more often than the zipper anyways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb This jacket exceeded my expectations. The materials are noticeably heavy duty and there are tons of hidden details. It's obvious that Penfield expects you to own this piece for a lifetime. Why else would they provide extra snaps and rivets? This jacket doesn't just look great but is fully functional. Well worth the price even at full price.
