Rated 4 out of 5áby 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.

Pros - This waterproof, with a down fill and long enough without being frumpy. It will also be great for shoveling and snowshoeing. I read the size chart and the XL is a little big, but I can wear layers under the coat without it getting snug. The navy/heather is a beautiful color. The description states the coat was tested in the White Mountains, a rugged and beautiful place that is also frigid in the winter!
Cons - I knew the coat was imported when I purchased it, like so many clothes today. It is disappointing that I can't find a quality winter coat (not a peacoat) made in the USA, and that this coat was manufactured in Bangladesh. LL Bean - you make and carry so many wonderful American-made products from your tote bags to boots and rugs. Is there any way to make the Baxter State Parka here at home? I'd feel much better about this purchase.

Nice looking jacket but not as warm as the one I thought it would replace. The drawstring for the waist line is located inside the zippered slash pockets and not only inconvenient to use but make the pockets practically unusable. Right now we have been experiencing temps far below normal, wind chills below zero so it IS being tested but when it falls to below zero actual temps I will go back to my old reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Colee929 Warmest jacket I've ever owned.
I bought this jacket last winter. I live in the Buffalo, NY area and it got me through 2 blizzards this past season. It is by far the warmest jacket I have ever owned. I'm 5'5" and 135lbs. I ordered the medium in the navy and it fit just fine. It hits me around mid thigh. It is boxier in shape rather than fitted in the waist. This I didn't mind since I was layering tops underneath. I washed it multiple times and it looks new to this day. I loved how warm it was and how great it looked on. If your looking for a warm jacket for cold winters I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nothinglikeabean Perfect fit,wonderful material and great color
I have never ordered a jacket/coat from a catalog previously. I compared my measurements to your Measurement Chart and the product I received was a perfect fit. We had an sudden cold snap and the jacket came in handy fitting off the cold and wind.The material is a very tight woven material and stands up to the cold north wind. The Vibrant Red color I ordered is a beautiful clear red and have received a lot of compliments on the jacket itself as well as the color. This product stands up to the cold and the weight is just right, not a heavy or light jacket, in between, which I like.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PeriPat Very Warm, Durable Fabric
After having read other reviews, I was worried about the sleeve length. They worked for me, but I am only 5'3" and weigh about 140 lbs. I chose the medium, which is a roomy fit, which is perfect for me. It is a parka, it is not going to be slimming for those who prefer fashion over utility.

Rated 4 out of 5áby NewEnglandReviewer Winter coat
The coat has a good fit. I purchased a 2X because I wanted to make sure there was plenty of room with bulky sweaters. I probably would have been okay with the 1X. It would have been helpful if there was an informational sheet that told you where to find the adjustment for the cinch waist. I had to look through every pocket and zip! I am glad that you can take the fur trim off of the hood. That was one of the things for which I really did not care. I live in the New England area of the US. I was looking for a coat that could be worn during the snow. I wanted it to be warm and not be soaking wet when I finished shoveling. I think this will meet my need...not sure yet, no snow since the purchase of the coat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HarrietBetty Best coat ever
Best winter coat I've ever owned. Smart-looking, warm, comfortable with great pockets. Machine washed and dried it twice already - still looks like new.

I bought this a couple days ago and absolutely love it! It gets really cold in my area, it was below freezing the day after I bought this coat and I stayed quite warm wearing it. I'm looking forward to wearing it on the slopes this winter!
