Rated 5 out of 5 by Emylou ultrawarm coat, long
It was my daughter's christmas present. She is visiting from Berlin, Germany and the coat has not left her body (it seems) since she opened the package. I liked it so much I bought one for myself. I might add that we checked out 3 other stores and their coats were not as well made, as long, nor as attractive as L.L.Bean;s coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommawynn needs a little improvement
love this coat. it is warm true to size and length. The one thing it lacks is adequate pockets and pocket size. Pocket is almost too small for gloves. Otherwise I just love the coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bananers No Regrets
I bought this coat approx 2yrs ago when it was available in periwinkle. I have never regretted it. In fact, when it gets cold enough out, I am excited because it is an excuse to wear my periwinkle coat with fur lined boots. The boots come up higher than the bottom of the coat. I am comfortable while everyone else is cold. I only gave it 4 stars because the coat could be improved by having larger armholes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Satzie Warmest winter coat I've ever owned
Fabulously warm coat! Stylish, sleek (not bulky), Light weight and stands up to bitter cold and strong wind. I live in the Midwest and often travel to Canada, and I am no longer ever cold. Love the hidden cuffed sleeves - keeps wind out. Not bulky even if you get in and out of the car a lot. My only suggestion is that I wish the pockets were large enough to hold a pair of LL Bean winter gloves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kim10024 Nice coat but...
This coat runs large, had to exchange medium regular for small petite, which fit much better. I am 5 "1", 125 pounds. It is very long, comes almost to my ankles. A bit shorter would be nice. I have had it for a few weeks, no feathers falling out, others complained about this. However, it really is not a particularly warm coat. If it is under 32 and windy, I need to wear layers under it. My main complaint is the zipper, however. It constantly sticks or goes off the track. This is very annoying. So too long, bad zipper, could be warmer. Otherwise it is a nice coat
and looks nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AndreaNicole disappointing
I am giving this 2 stars instead of zero because it is lovely, soft and roomy enough in my regular size to wear a bulky sweater underneath without being tight in the armpits or across the chest. On the other hand, I do not think it is warm! I got it to wait outside for my kid's busses on cold Michigan mornings. The wind whips right through the material with a sweatshirt underneath! Also, the zipper! It is absolutely terrible to zip. It is a battle every time to just get it started. I have other LLBean coats that are easy to zip. This one gets stuck constantly or won't even start. Also, the velcro at the hood! There is a wide patch of scratchy velcro meant for closing the hood right at the collar area. It is right in the way of scarfs and seat belts and is very annoying. I could detach the hood, but I use it regularly. I just wish it would close with a snap instead of all that velcro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EarlyMorningRiser Everything I Expected
I spoke with a customer service rep on the chat to decide on size prior to ordering. The rep was very helpful--pointing out that chest measurement (not bra size) was important to fit as well as height, etc. I am 5'3, 110 lbs so I ordered a petite small. It falls an inch or so lower than calf length which is what I wanted. I have worn it several times to walk the dog on very cold days and sometimes layer w/a fleece jacket or wool sweater. I have noticed that the zipper sometimes comes unzipped when I bend down to put my dog's coat on but it's not a big problem. The furry hood? I think it adds a feminine touch to a coat that otherwise more utilitarian in purpose rather than "high fashion" and it is adjustable with a Velcro strip on the back. I Love my coat! It meets my needs perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by clw2548 LOVE this coat!!!!
This coat is awesome. It's beautiful, so soft and extra warm. I usually have to wear ear muffs even with a hood but this hood hugs your head so that no wind can get in. I can't say enough about it. The price is a little steep for my budget but worth every single penny and more. You won't go wrong buying this great coat.
I got the mittens to match. They are so warm. I have gloves that are suppose to be for below zero weather but the mittens are warmer than any glove I've ever worn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyHubby2 Perfect Coat!
Bought this for my wife for her Birthday. Looked all over town for the perfect coat - she had very specific requirements. Found this one online and it fit her requirements to a "t". Received the coat today and she wore it as soon as she could. Her exact words were "I Love, Love, Love, this coat!" Long enough, perfect size for her. Light yet very warm. She loves the zipper and snaps as well as the zippered pockets. Could not be happier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by VLADASIA long down polar coat
Coat is long as internet description. Comparing this coat to my last long down coat it seems a lot lighter not as heavy [???? less down per square inch of coat???]. To date, I have not worn the coat. It has not been very cold in se Michigan....Will know when worn as the temperature drops to the low digits or below zero....
When shopping this year, I found fewer long coats than I recall in previous years.....alas, I really wanted a very bright red but red is not in this year or so I found.....
LLBEAN OFFERS FREE SHIPPING NO MINIMUMS GREAT OFFER I HATE TO PAY FOR S & H THO I REALIZE THAT FREE SHIPPING AND HANDLING ARE FACTORED INTO THE PRICE OF THE COAT.........PSYCHOLOGICAL PRICING I GUESS.....
