Lands’ End Men’s Hooded Down Jacket

I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I am caring about how I look more than ever before. I am in my early 30’s, I have made my way back to the same weight that I was in high school, and I am building a little muscle in this bod of mine. Trying to keep up with a wife that just looks better and better as the years go on is really hard. I need to make sure that I don’t slack off in the fashion department not only so I can be seen in public with my wife but at the same time hope to never embarrass my kids by ever becoming the lazy-out-of-touch-with-society-these-days type of dad.

I have had to get rid of a good bit of clothes that are too big for me now.  I have replaced those clothes with new clothes that are really nice and family approved. Once I got the shirts, the pants, and the shoes I knew that I had to work on the other items that would compliment a new wardrobe. I am not a hat person so I didn’t have to worry about that. The biggest thing to worry about now would be a new jacket and this is where Lands’ End comes in.

The fine folks at Lands’ End sent over a Lands ‘End Men’s Hooded Down Jacket. Starting off with the outside of the jacket I found that the windproof nylon shell features a water-resistant finish to repel rain and snow. There is a storm flap and oh-so ingenious concealed fleece storm cuffs that keep cold from sneaking in. The adjustable, insulated hood stays put on your head — even when Old Man Winter starts to blow. There are eight colors to choose from but if you know me I really tend to stick with black. Feel free to brighten things up.

On the inside you’ve got a lightweight inner lining that is packed with 600 fill down so you can bundle up without looking like the Michelin Man. There are some simple yet very practical details that include, zippered side pockets, a zippered chest pocket, and finished off with an adjustable drawcord hem. Another good thing is that when after you are done getting all wet and dirty (but still staying warm) outside you can throw this guy in the washer and dryer and be done with it.


Some Little Details

  • Maximum warmth without traditional down bulk.
  • Lightweight, super warm 600 fill down insulation
  • Wind-resistant nylon shell with DriOff finish repels water
  • Down insulated hood easily zips off when not needed
  • Storm flap provides added protection
  • Cozy fleece-lined pockets with secure zipper closure
  • Internal pocket and cord port for MP3 player


I think anyone that needs a seriously warm jacket should snag this one.  It is rated one of the warmest jackets out of all of Lands’ End inventory.  I really like the fit and features of this jacket and if I had to say one negative thing about the jacket it would probably be that there are no layers or control to the warmth it provides.  I guess I really kind of got spoiled with my other Land’s End jacket from previous winters where you had three different ways to wear that one.
