Limited Edition Feather & Down Asymmetric Padded Coat
I love the fit and the style of this coat, it looks really nice on.... However.... I have purchased similar coats from M&S in previous years and have found them far superior both in warmth (this coat is very lightweight and flimsy) and finish. It says in the product description that this coat is lined... I would say it is not. Well not like my previous coats anyway. The pockets are terrible, again flimsy and attached to the outer edge of the coat so that if anything is placed in them it pulls the edges, totally ruining the look of what could be a lovely coat and rendering the pockets totally useless.

Stylish padded coat
I ordered this coat because I liked the style and colour. On receiving it I was not disappointed. Yes it is very light weight but feels warm and liked the nude colour and slde fastening and will be keeping it. I also liked the style round the neck and look forward to wearing it.

I can't understand what M&S are up to with this coat. I have previously had a gorgeous feather and down coat from here. But this is so THIN and uncosy. In my opinion it is not fit for purpose. Yes it's lightweight, but for the warmth it would give, it was like wearing a tissue. Plus it has no zip to fasten it. For me, off-centred poppers will not keep out winter winds. Yep, it's going back.

Very pleasantly surprised.
I saw this on line and ordered with crossed fingers as I have been struggling for some time to find a suitable coat for Sweden in November.
Collected today and am so pleased.This coat weighs less than 500gms so you hardly know you have it on.The fit is good as on the model it looked as if it might be short in the arms.The neutral colour means I can match it with lots of outfits and for me lack of a hood is great bonus as they are usually cumbersome and too big.
I'm not sure how sturdy the interior pockets will be but for me they are not a priority. I wish it came in dark brown as well.
I doubt very much if my local (smallish) M&S will stock this so had I not had the internet I would have missed it,please M&S just because a town is small doesn't mean it doesn't count.
