Rated 2 out of 5 by happycamper001 Boxy fit and color was not as expected (Loden)
I was disappointed when I received this coat. I ordered a size 8, which is what I normally wear, and I think that was the correct size for me (5'7", 155 lbs) for this coat. As other reviewers had mentioned, the shoulders of the coat seem to sit high, and the waist of the coat seemed to be much straighter in person than in the picture, and the sleeves were maybe an inch too long. Overall I felt that it looked very boxy on me and did not appear a very feminine coat. I ordered the Loden color and expected more of a foresty loden green based on the picture on my computer but in person it is really more of a military/olive loden green, which I just wasn't a fan of. Overall I wouldn't recommend this coat based on the fit, I wish it had a bit more shape to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeneralMcLaneFan Soft and warm
I had been watching this coat all season and finally saw it come up in a regular 6 in navy, which had been sold out online. I jumped on it! It is very soft, well made, and attractive. I also like the deep pockets. I'm 5 4, 116 pounds and the 6 fit perfectly. It has been extremely cold recently and, with a bulky sweater underneath, the coat has been very warm. I know I'll have this coat for years!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by woolcoatfan Stiff Collar
This is a high quality jacket. I love the fact that it is 100% wool-- that is difficult to find nowadays. I also love the warmth of the insulation. The issue for me is the stiff collar. It is unyielding, almost like a block of wood, and places significant pressure against the back of my neck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Edeltraud Quality material, sharp design but sleeve problem
This is a really well made and stylish peacoat. It fit well except for the sleeves which were too long about three inches too long for me. Took it to our regular tailor to have them adjusted, but she said she would need to remove the sleeve straps to do it , was sure it would leave holes in the fabric that could be noticed and refused to try it. Sadly, I had to return it.
If your considering this coat you may want to check on sleeve size with LL Bean before ordering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tuscarora Beautifully made---sadly too large
Bought this for my daughter. Loved the classic look and the lovely loden green color. High quality fabric and construction. However, even the size 4 petite was way too big in every way---the sleeves especially were extremely long, it really didn't seem like a "petite" at all. Sadly, we had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Renogal Well made and classy
I bought this coat to replace my old pea coat that finally wore out. It is very well made. Best of all it is not a heavy coat--weight wise. Some winter coats weigh so much they are uncomfortable to wear. Not this one. But it is nice and warm. I found it to run true to size. I am short so I bought petite. The sleeve could have been a quarter inch shorter for me, but it will keep my wrists warm.
I would recommend this coat. I bought it in navy blue, because that is peacoat color to me. It is a true navy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ninna Not happy at all.
I bought this item overseas and am not happy with the final result. I ordered Raspberry, because on the page and catalog it looks red, however, when I received it, it looks extremely pink. Also, I bought the smallest size and it is huge. Would not recommend, very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quijano34 True size
I read some of the reviews about ordering one size up, I did actually order size 6P my normal size and I'm glad I did because it's just fit right and a room for layering. By the way I love the navy color, very stylish, you can wear it with skirts and jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheBookseller Wonderful Coat
I haven't ordered from L.L. Bean since college (20 years ago), so I relied on the sizing guidelines provided. Mistake.
The coat itself is wonderful, and I'm glad I bought it, but I went through 3 sizes before I had the right fit.
I'm 5'4", 125lbs, with a 37 chest measurement, and the regular coat in 6 is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldruralshopper The Perfect Coat
I love this coat. The color, loden, is beautiful and it's so soft. I wanted another duffel coat like the one I bought here years ago. The current version doesn't work for me but it's a still a gorgeous coat. I bought my normal size rather than sizing up and it fits perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased.
