Rated 5 out of 5 by KuriousKat Love, love, love this coat!
It was exactly what I wanted and more. SO warm. No polar vortex for me! Love the way it looks, too. Only one suggestion: would like it even more if the cuffs had elastic to hold the cold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lswf Ultrawarm Coat, Long meets all expectations...
Here in Colorado, the weather can be really cold and snowy in the fall and winter, and my old down coat had fallen apart after many years of use. I was looking to replace it and checked out many online stores that sell winter coats. Most of the places I looked didn't have a down-filled mid-calf length coat which is really important to me. The only place that had the coat I wanted was LL Bean. The coat arrived within the specified time frame and in perfect condition. When I tried it on it was the perfect size and had additional features that I hadn't realized from the picture and description such as the outside pockets were zippered, there is an inside pocket for a cell phone, and that the main zipper can zip up from the bottom so when I?m driving the zipper from my knees to calf won?t get pulled on so it won't tear out (which happened with my old coat). It's insulated with winter-tested down fill so I know it's going to keep me toasty warm, has a removable hood with a Velcro fastener over the coat's neck snap fastener to keep your neck really warm and dry in wet/snowy weather, is water-repellent, and machine washable. The coat is overall very well made. I am so pleased and can't wait for when it's finally cold enough to wear. I highly recommend this coat to anyone who wants a great winter coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CateyN Love this coat!
Haven't tested it out yet in cold weather... but - it seems perfect. Fits well (originally ordered a Large and returned it for a Medium). At 5'8" the length is perfect. Well made with nice details like cuffs inside the sleeves, the zipper is protected with a placket that snaps down, great extra velcro tabs at the neck - all features that will keep the cold air out. Love the hood and the fur trim! Ordered the dark brown which is a good dark shade that will match with a variety of colors for scarves, hats and gloves. I'm actually looking forward to winter weather to werar this coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by iceskater999 Long, Sleeves Fit, Great Color
This is the third long, down LLBean coat I have had. It was time to replace the bright grass green one from several years back. I worried that the sleeves would be too short ( I am 5'10 and have long arms), but they are not, and length is great. Inside pocket holds a mobile phone, and exterior pockets will hold gloves. It remains to be seen how well it will do in a northeast winter like last year's. Meanwhile, it is a great color, and I am ready for cold weather.

I ordered the purple coat for my daughter to take to college. It's extra warm and very long. She is small and the XS is still a little big on her. The color is beautiful. The coat is a little bit boxy, but should keep her warm in Boston winters. One problem: we had to return the first one because the zipper was hard to work. The second coat is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeeGeeof4 Great length
I purchased this coat to supplement another LL Bean down coat that is getting a little thin and is a light color. I have loved it and it kept me warm in Houston and for visits to northern Virginia. This one is longer which I wanted. Can't wait for cold weather!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gardengirll hopefully a warm Minnesota winter coat
Looking forward to wearing my new coat this winter, but not looking forward to winter. Looked everywhere last year when we had 55 days below zero. Forecast is for another awful winter, so my down coat will be appreciated. I will know more about how to comment on it in April 2015.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yerdle Surprisingly desireable
When this coat came in we saw the styling and thought, "Plain Jane." Then we checked the construction, the feel, and how warm it was, and thought "not bad, this could work out." It's heavy. If Bean used 850 fill down this coat would be much lighter. It's also quite long, even on someone 5' 9", which means it's warmer than shorter coats. It would be wonderful if there were snaps at the bottom to be able to shorten the coat 6" to 9" to keep it out of dirt and slush or for fast walking. The weight and lack of cleaning possibilities while traveling meant we returned this coat. But it is definitely worth trying if you need a warm coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NurseT Love it!
I just received my coat today and I love it! Bring on the cold! I ordered a large regular. Im 5ft 2 inches and have a 40 chest so according to the chart I was a large. I actually went to the local LLBean store to try on a medium but i needed the large. It falls right at my ankle.

I purchased this coat many years ago. It is worn out. So I am replacing it. It is very warm, lightweight, a good fit and easy to wash. The wind does not penetrate it. The hood has an added piece to it which really helps keep the face covered. Overall, it is a great buy.
