Rated 5 out of 5áby CR69 Excellent.
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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Earthdoggies Super warm, heavy jacket
This jacket is boxy but not too short and it can be tightened around the hem with the drawcord. Sleeves are long, but not so long that they completely cover my hands.I love the snap tab closures on the roomy front pockets.Even though the jacket is heavy I can still work, move my arms to lift and carry items. It does have a waxed smell to it, but it's not bad. It is not a cutesy coat but in my opinion a sturdy work coat. I am glad I finally decided to make this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Eebie Why is it so darn short??
I don't know whether I should give this jacket five stars or one. I have had my eye on it at least since last year, and finally decided to buy it for this winter. I was really really really looking forward to having a lovely waxed cotton jacket with such trim style and LL Bean quality.
It is very stylish, warm with out being clammy and extremely well made. I wore it riding my bike on a very cold early morning, and it was simultaneously very warm but breathable. High quality materials and the pockets are lined with cozy fleece. My minor criticism is that I ordered the khaki color, which is a fantastic color, darker than the picture online, and the brown fleece lining the pockets and collar is a somewhat ugly color that does not compliment the waxed cotton. Same color would be better. Never the less, the pockets are great, the sleeves were fine in length...I loved it, but...
It is sooooo short!!! Granted I am tallish. 5'8" and 135 lb. I ordered the x small and it fit really well everywhere, except that it is at least 3 inches too short, and left my lower body feeling exposed. I tried to make it work, but I caught sight of myself a few times and realized it just looked absurd, like something that had shrunk in the wash. I would consider the next size up but even that is only 1/2 inch longer. So,sorry tall women, this jacket is not for us. I don't know why they can't make it normal length and make a petite size, or offer it in a tall size. So frustrating.
I would pay twice the price for this jacket if it fit me. But I had to send it back, alas.
