Rated 5 out of 5 by MommaNY Sizing - Fit of the Petite small/medium long coat
I've read many reviews of this coat and couldn't decide what size to order for my 5'1" daughter with 36D. She'll be attending school at a very north location and needed something long and warm. I decided on petite but couldn't decide small or medium, so I ordered both ( very easy return policy). Well she fit the small petite, and it went down to her ankles and there was plenty of room in the bodice of the coat. Although I have nothing to say about the warmth of the coat since it hasn't been worn yet. The other reviews says it all in that department. I hope this helps as far as for sizing! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by WinterLover220 Exactly What I Wanted
I was very hesitant to buy this coat because most clothes in the women's department are too big. I ordered a petite X-Small and it fits exactly as I imagined. I do look like a giant marshmallow, but I knew from wearing it that I'd be very warm this winter. I was starting to burn up in my house just walking around (note that it was 75 degrees when I tried it on, but I could feel the quality would make me very warm when winter came). The length is a bit long going down to the lowest points of my ankles (I'm 5'2"), but I like that because it will help block the wind from my legs. The sleeve length is perfect and I can still fit a heavy sweater underneath with some room to breathe.
I called customer service to figure out which size I should buy and what the exact dimensions for the coat were. The X-Small petite has a 43 inch chest so I was initially very worried about it fitting me, but I took a chance and bought it anyway. The return shipping is only $6.50 and you can't beat LLbean quality. They have a lifelong guarantee. You really can't beat that. Plus, you're not overpaying for a brand name. You're getting exactly what the coat is worth and not paying extra just for the brand. Also I get a person as soon as I call them. Not an annoying automated machine.
Llbean, if you're reading this, keep up the good work! I will recommend winter gear from here based off my experience buying this coat.
Also, if you're looking for a stylish coat maybe this isn't the one, but if you're looking to be warm for years and get a lifelong guarantee that no matter what happens to your coat it will be replaced for free, then this is for you. Llbean really knows what they're doing to prepare for winter. The department stores carrying the brand names just don't have the same quality. Ladies, pick comfort over style. It's so much more sexier when you're warm and smiley than cold and pathetic because you're shivering so much.

Even though I haven't had the chance to wear this coat outside yet, I'm prepared for the cold weather this upcoming winter. This coat will come in handy while walking my dog on cold days. It is comfortable and is the right length to keep my legs warm. Great product. I'm glad I bought it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EquestrianLover Very Pleased and Beyond
I tried to order the ultrawarm coat last year at the start of the New England winter and had no luck. It was sold out in every color and size so I was forced to wait until July. Needless to say, I jumped at it without any hesitation. This coat is exactly what I wanted and needed. I commute on public transportation and am exposed to the outside elements that can be very unforgiving. This coat has a deep hood, it's full length and down filled - all the things that I will need. Also, when I'm at the horse stable in the lower unheated ring, this coat can give me some warmth while I'm watching a practice ride.
I'm just happy to have it and in a color that wasn't available last winter - slate purple! For once, this New England girl is ready for winter and it's blustery cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanaudrey PERFECT long coat with fur-trimmed hood
Just received my ultrawarm long down coat with fur-trimed hood.
Tried to order last year, but you were sold out. The color, chocolate brown, is BEAUTIFUL and the coat is nice and long -- will look great with boots. (Have never been able to figure out double zippers, though.) It's still warm here in Bend, Oregon (August, 2015), but I'm READY for winter!! Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by Casey0degrees Long, Dark Green, Down Coat with Hood
This coat looks and feels like it fits me just right. It is long, almost down to my ankles, and has a thick down lining. It feels warm, but it's now July and very hot; I received the coat from LL Bean about a week ago.
I cannot give the coat a 5-star rating until winter when I'm driving and the temperature is very low. (I live in PA.) I'll know then whether or not it deserves a 5-star rating: IF it keeps me--including my LEGS--warm while I'm driving the car (before the heater has heated the car), THEN the coat will receive that 5 STAR rating. All-over warmth is the main reason I bought this coat.

It fits well. It seems like it will keep me warm but right now it's 90 outside so not sure. I know last winter you couldn't find anything like this anywhere (sold out) and I had to wait until July to order it. I did so at first chance I could get. I don't want to be stuck again this winter. Seems well made but it's a good thing the fake fur trim comes off, it awful!! But it looks even better without it.

I just received the coat and the temperature is 85 degrees. Therefore, I cannot give a review as to how warm the coat is but I am very pleased with my purchase. The quality is good, I ordered brown and the color is as stated, and I love the pockets.
Taking in consideration the maxi length, the cuffs inside the sleeves, the closure at the neck and the hood, which protects your face, I would say that I should be very warm this winter. All in all the coat should keep me very warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GuernseyGuy Great, warm winter coat
I purchased this coat for my wife to replace the identical coat which was nearly 20 years old. As a teacher, this was her "recess coat" because it always kept her warm on the coldest and windiest days. She was thrilled to have the new coat because it's a new color and will continue to provide her the comfort she needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Coat
I love this coat because it is really warm, and covers my bottom area really well. I hate when wind blows up a coat, and in Minnesota there are really big and cold winds. I love it.
