Rated 4 out of 5 by pjh0o Very warm, wish LL Bean would make a long version
This jacket is very warm and I can tell it is going to wear very nicely over time. However, whenever I wear it I am very warm on top but cold on the bottom. I hope LL Bean makes a knee-length version for next winter (without a cinched waist -- those look bad).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Witchplato Warm and Comfy!
I like this coat because it is not "fitted" or "slightly fitted" as so many other women's coats are. There is plenty of room in the arms and shoulders, and does not tug across the upper back when I put my arms forward. It is very comfy! The arms are very long on this coat but can easily be cuffed under. I am 5 feet tall, so the length fits me fine, however long torso or waisted women may find this coat too short for them. There is a residual odor on this coat due to the waxing of the material, but it fades in time. I sprayed mine with Febreeze and hung it outside to dry, and it is fine now. Heavy duty brass zipper is a plus, and the side pockets are very warm for cold hands. Rain beads off of it nicely and the collar is nice and soft. Not a "pretty" coat but a great functional coat for the outdoorsey type of gal! I really like it!

Warmest, toughest coat I've ever owned. Wish I had bought it years ago. I bought a medium because I have long arms, I'm pleased to report the sleeves are exactly the right length and don't ride up while working. I'm very slim so the body is a bit big, but that just means I can wear a sweater underneath if need be.
Very satisfied, thank you Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teachNE Nice jacket
Very warm, very functional and true to size. Can be worn for work or play. Sleeves a bit long but can be cuffed easily. Does show lint.
Worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BunnyHo The warmest coat you will every own!
A friend recommended this coat....I was doubtful it would live up to the billing she gave it but I have to admit this coat is fantastic! If you spend a lot of time outside, in barn, on the farm or doing outside country sports...this is the coat for you!!!! On top of all that, it's cute too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovinglife1 Warm, Great outdoor working coat
I received this as a gift and it is just perfect for outdoor work or horseback riding. You don't have to worry about snagging it on something or getting it dirty. It is heavy duty and can take the abuse. It is boxy looking, but that is because of the style that it is. It does not look sexy on by any means. But it does do its job as a warm, working coat. I usually wear large shirts through LL bean. The Jacket I got is a large and it has some room to wear a sweatshirt underneath. My husband likes it so much , he wants one too. Ladies if you live on a ranch then this jacket is for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Foxcroft Warmer than ever!
This is the warmest jacket I have ever owned and am looking forward to using it to horseback ride--the length is perfect for it. I am 5'5" and 130 lbs. and ordered a small in the brown and it is a good fit. I probably could have worn an XS as well, but the small is not too big and I can fit a sweater underneath. The sleeves are long, but that doesn't bother me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ilove2camp Keeps me Warm - Even in -23 degree F weather !!!
I bought this coat at an outlet store. I thought it was black, but apparently it is green... It is VERY dark, and looks black, not green. The negative: It attracts every speck of hair and fuzz - it doesn't look great. However, I still love it. The positives: The sleeves are finally long enough for me. I am only 5'4, but I have a hard time finding sleeves that cover my wrists. I wore it two days ago when it was MINUS 23 DEGREES and WINDY - I was toasty warm under my jacket (my legs were frozen though). I kind of wish it had a hood, that would have been really nice; especially if it was removable. The body length could be a tad bit longer. It covers me well, but I wouldn't mind it a couple of inches longer. It is the best purchase I have ever made for a jacket . I finally have a warm coat - it keeps me warm and happy :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovescorgis My new favorite jacket! Please add a hood!
My husband spied this coat in the store and asked me to try it. I was leery at first, but after I tried it on I bought it. It is so warm and comfy. Very easy to move in. Just wore it out today and the snow beads up and I stayed warm and dry. I too wish it had a hood, sometimes it is a pain to carry a hat, when I am walking the dog I get caught unaware with the cold wind. It would make it better by far. Love the zippered pockets, that is always a must for me as well. I think this will be my new favorite jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stephaniejk Fits great once you find the right size!
I've been eyeing this jacket for a few years and finally decided to go for it. I originally ordered XL, and it was so large that I sent it back. I was really nervous that the L would also be too big, since the shoulders were so big on the XL. I wasn't confident that my chest would fit in the M, but I didn't see an opportunity for L petite, so I went for the M. It fits perfectly! I probably wouldn't be able to fit a bulky sweater on underneath, but there's no reason to either. This coat is really warm, and I'm excited that it's also water repellent. I would probably give 5 stars, am only reserving one because the weather hasn't given me the opportunity to wear this in earnest yet.
