Rated 4 out of 5 by Summerwindnc Toasty, waterproof,perfect for the Coldest weather
This coat allows you to venture out in the worst weather snug and dry. Unlike other down coats, you have room to wear a warm sweater, or fleece as it is not snuggly fitted.
Down inside the hood will keep you warm, deep fit allows for a knitted hat to layer up for the best protection from the worst weather winter has to deliver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TootilyToots Seems perfect!
Great length, warmth and weight. Excited to give it a full go throughout this winter. I love the fit and the hood. I got the red color - vibrant and fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chowbell Very warm
This is a great parka. The hood and the faux fur on the hood are both removable so it is more versatile. Lots of pockets. It is definitely warm and will be used by us for trips to colder climates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreatOutdoorswoman It's the way to go for COLD weather!
I own two of these. One is for rough work that gets the jacket dirty, one is for going outside for walks and going to work. The only thing predictable about western Massachusetts winters is that they are unpredictable and horrible - one day minus 10 degrees, the next day in the thirties with 18 inches of snow, the next day howling wind and freezing rain. I have to have effective clothing and the Baxter State Parka comes through it all, keeping me warm, comfortable, and able to work outdoors for extended periods of time. I have one in pale lavender that is so attractive, I wear it to my professional job and everyone compliments me on it. This jacket is a total winner. I had one that got a broken zipper and LL Bean replaced it for free. I can't say enough good things - get yourself one of these jackets and you will never regret it.

Great jacket. My girl is always complaining how she's cold. Got her this, problem solved. Jacket can handle any weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by myhopeinhim Great coat
So far I love the coat but I ordered ahead to be ready for next winter. For right now I can't give a review for how it holds up to the cold windy winters of the South Dakota plains. But, if it is anything like my other LL Bean coat that I have had for 14 years I'm sure it will do just fine in the frigid temps. I love the fit. I am 5'6" and weigh about 140. The medium is a perfect fit for my build. I like the multiple pockets and drawstring for the waist. I am not crazy about the fur collar and am glad it can be removed easily. The heather navy color is unique and I really like it. Hoping the coat performs well in the cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Turnip3 AMAZING Coat!
Southern Ontario enjoyed one of the coldest winters in over a decade BUT nothing stopped this Baxter State Parka! This coat kept me warm and dry throughout our ice storms, snow storms and freezing polar vortex temperatures. The red is a wonderful, bright colour that makes me easy to see in the evenings. Additionally, the length of this coat is fantastic - keeping your upper thighs and bottom warm, but short enough that you can walk easily. Fantastic coat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by liketostaywarm warm parker
I love the hooded parker I bought except the hood droops over my eyes a bit too much unless I wear a hat under it. I am out in the winter walking and caring for animals and need a hood on a very warm jacket especially this winter. I would also have liked it if it was about 5 inches longer but I have not found any womens parka coats that were this long. I had been wearing a mens jacket for years that finally fell apart . I would rate this as the best one available I could find.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ramblewood Warm and roomy - a little fit problem
Looking for a really warm jacket, I ordered this 'cause I wanted a hood too. I'm short and with the bulk of this jacket, I didn't like it plus the back between the shoulder blades puffed out and looked funny. Overall, I looked like two legs with a colorful box on top. Yep, I'm sending it back. Oh, and I did order a petite but some styles just aren't suited for short women. I'm 5'1" and 115 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBEANWARM23 Wicked toasty!
Received my Baxter State Parker Down winter coat and was so excited!! It only took 2 days to arrive and with our Boston high wind Spring storm it was just in time!! It was just the right color I was hoping for. The Navy Heather color wears well with jeans and is so warm and toasty!! The price was a little high as it was the end of the season but well worth it in the end. Thank you LLBean for not disappointing once again!!
