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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canadamum Just perfect!
I love everything about this coat. I am 5"4 120lbs and the fit was perfect as is the length. I live in Canada and am a mum to two young children and a large dog. This winter was brutal and I am outside a LOT.I walk to schools and back, long dog walks... and spend a lot of time in ice rinks between hockey and figure skating. This coat kept me and my legs nice and toasty. It also washes easy and dries fast... and does not feel bulky. I just today ordered a similar coat for my daughter in a lovely bight happy pink. I got black for me (as a native New Yorker.. could not resist...haaa).. but would re purchase this coat in a nice bright blue or pink in an adult size.. hint hint L.L.Bean.. This coast in a must have for an active person who wants to stay warm in the coldest of cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Retire2015 Bring on winter!
I absolutely love this coat and it is a great weight. It is the first flattering down coat I have ever worn. I thought it might be a little long, but came to appreciate the length on bitterly cold upper Midwestern winter days. I spent Christmas in Fargo, ND and this coat was a god send. I did take off the faux fur trim as it seemed to get in the way. Also, make-up does rub off a bit on the black - that said, it washes beautifully. I would buy another one, but given the quality of this one, I'm certain to have it for years and years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewEnglanderforever Love this coat - a lot.
I was going to order the coat and kept thinking about it then they were all gone. Kept checking back and the coats returned. I ordered it and absolutely love it. I bought it based on all the five star reviews. I now live in East Tennessee with winter temps in the 40's and 50's but this year we had single digits and several days in the teens. I have a Baxter State Parka I really love for those cold days 30's and below but this coat is even better. It keeps my legs warm even in really cold wind. I read other reviews about the sleeves not keeping you warm. True. Not much down in the sleeves but with something long sleeved underneath the coat, its perfect. I have never loved a coat this much. Its thin and very lightweight. Its not bulky at all and hard to believe it would keep you warm but it does. I'm really glad I bought it and highly recommend it. I'm 5'3" tall and the regular size comes just about to the bottom of my slacks.
