Rated 5 out of 5áby reconmarine1966 commuter coat
Item as described. It's a little bit heavy, but serves the purpose for which I purchased it. That is "very" cold weather. Have not had a chance to wear it very much , but when I did wear it, it was very warm.

Rated 3 out of 5áby USDutchie It depends on its usage
The coat is fantastic, but had to return it. Because it is way TOO WARM en for that matter too heavy. It just does not work for me.
I wish the same coat would be offered for a climate when the temperatures vary between +6oC and -6o Celcius OR 40oF and 20oFahrenheit.
In other words with a much thinner liner and lighter in weight.
I love the Gore-Tex shell and its entire construction.
If the above would not be possible, make the coat in a WAXED COTTON .....even better!!

Rated 2 out of 5áby ChicagoJo Runs very large
I've been a Large-Tall size for over 25 years. Recently though, I've noticed that many clothing items at LL Bean (and elsewhere) have gotten larger. This coat runs at least one size too large. This wouldn't be a problem for me if they offered it in Medium-Tall, but that's not an option. Bring back true clothing sizes!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby njsportsman nor' easter commuter coat
I just received the coat a few weeks ago so I cannot comment on the performance in cold conditions. However, the quality of the coat appears to be excellent. I saw several reviews re-zipper problems but after trying my coat's zipper there were no issues. Casual dress was the deciding factor in this purchase rather than opting for something like the baxter state parka.
This coat should provide the usual good service that I've come to expect with all Bean products.

Rated 3 out of 5áby eightcoveyday Nor'easter Commuter Coat not inviting to wear
Too early to tell how it will measure up against the cold, but the outside fabric is very stiff and uninviting. Because of the stiffness and length of coat, it is difficult to get the zipper started - takes several attempts - which is annoying. My only hope at present is that it will soften with wear and become more comfortable to use.

Rated 1 out of 5áby yippie70 More of the Same
I have nothing new to add to the scores of negative reviews of this jacket. It's bulky, heavy, uncomfortably so, the zipper is hard to manage, and on and on...I can't say anything about its warmth because I bought it last month in August for winter wear, but returned it two days after it arrived...

Rated 2 out of 5áby sanjuan787 I Do not Recommend--Not the usual LL bean quality
I am a regular LL Bean customer and used to high quality Bean merchandise. However, I think this item got past the buyers.
This is a warm coat and good value. Moreover, the pockets are very handy and convenient.
This jacket is very heavy, rigid and feels like your wearing a straight jacket-- not soft and comfortable.Moreover, the material is very drab and not very fashionable-- looks almost like a garment you would find inside an institution. Also, all of the complaints regarding the hard to close zipper are true-- I tired repeatedly to close the coat and had major difficulties-Last but not least-- this jacket attracts lint like no other-- if you have pets, you will find that lint an pet hair will have to be removed very regularly.
I like the concept of the coat, I just wish that Bean used better materials, which were soft, light and warm-- please jazz up the next version!

Rated 5 out of 5áby jbmbaa Exactly What I Want
It's good-looking enough to wear to the office. It's long enough to cover a sport jacket or suit coat. It's plenty warm enough (it was 8 below zero last night.) Some reviewers say it's too "heavy". Not true. Plenty of pockets. Very heavy-duty zipper. It's exactly what I need for Maine winters.

Rated 5 out of 5áby weilly Very Warm, Great Looking & High Quality
I have been looking for a well fitting, toasty warm and functional winter coat. I have found the L.L. bean Nor'easter coat to have all these qualities. I have worn it many mornings this December where the temperatures have been in single digits and it has kept me toasty warm. Great choice and a great coat. I wish I had owned this coat a few years ago. I know I would have been more comfortable if I had.
