Rated 5 out of 5 by Rea1 Classic, Classy and Comfortable
Last year I purchased the 3/4 polo in black. I'm a P6; It fit so well that I decided to replace my long coat with the same style in camel. Now I have coordinating hats, scarves and gloves for both.
Fabric and tailoring are of high quality. They are warm coats. I enjoy wearing them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NYgal OK so far
On a mission to purchase new gear, getting older, don't want junk & don't want things I have to replace in a few years. Needed a long coat, prefer wool (looking for down). Frankly this is the last place I thought I would find a long wool coat - I have sent SO much back to LLBean the last few years - fit, quality, etc. issues. So...this coat - nice! Got a P12 & P14 knowing one or both would go back - I kept the P14 to wear over a heavier sweater (P12 was OK but fit was tight - hate that princess stuff - I no longer have a princess figure!).
Description says "lambswool" but the label says "wool" so I wonder about that. The wool is soft, warm, not too heavy. Buttons could be sewed on better (could use a button sewed on the inside as in better coats). Also like that there is NO belt. One review said the "belt" on the sleeve isn't sewed into the seam - I hate those things anyway, they just attract more dirt - so I VERY carefully removed them. Use care if you do this - they are not adjustable & don't add anything to the coat. I got the camel color (prefer black but don't want salt stains). Pockets seem nicely placed, not too low. I like the added insulation and that the poly lining is sewed to the coat, not just hanging there to drag down later. All in all - Bean, you have once again impressed me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaiseyS Black lambswool coat
Quality full-length coat falls below the knee but not too long. Size 16 was perfectly true to size, not skimpy in any way. Shipped in w buttons wrapped w tissue, sleeves shaped w tissue, coat folded once and sealed in protective wrapper. This item reflects the care/quality that I've always associated w LL Bean and that one finds rarely these days in clothing stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KBSK Just what I was looking for
The coat is perfect! Sized just right! I often had trouble with my hips causing the bottom to stay open, but that is not the case with this coat. It stays closed and keeps me toasty warm! It is perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CherryB not really "long"
I was looking for a truly long winter coat, and after phoning LL Bean seemed to be assured that this coat would meet that spec. Sadly, it did not. Whatever happened to LONG coats which end somewhere halfway between the knee and the ankles, preferably, even slightly below that?
Had to send it back for credit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NorthMNshopper Needs to be double-breasted
I bought this coat last year and wear it as I walk several blocks outside in the cold winter temperatures of Minnesota. The coat fits well and looks nice, and the thinsulate lining makes the body of the coat warm. My only complaint is that because the coat is not double-breasted, it flaps open when walking and does nothing to keep the front of your legs warm. A re-design would make this coat perfect!

The coat is definitely an elegant tailored coat. The fabric is soft and the lines are perfect. The coat can be dressed up or down and it is exactly what I was looking to wear. I did have a problem that since I purchased it on line, it was wrinkled in spots. I had to bring it to the cleaners to have it pressed. Once the wrinkles were gone the coat was just perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UpstateNYer7 Warm & Stylish, Great Quality Overall
This is a very warm coat! A mere 3 degrees the other morning and I wasn't the least bit cold. I'm very happy with the quality and look. A few notes:
I'm 5'6" and this coat falls between the knee and mid-calf. I've noticed, while shopping other stores, that this is the new standard length for "long" coats -- they are no longer almost ankle-length.
Size: I ordered a size 8 and it's perfect. I'm overall slim, wearing Medium tops and size 8 pants/jeans. I still had enough room to wear a fleece comfortably.
Design: I like the camel. It's not light and shouldn't look dirty too quickly. The buttons are a bit "high" -- when you sit, the coat opens at the legs, in my car, at least. I thought the pockets were a bit "high" and opened at an odd angle, but you don't have to worry about anything falling out, either.
Quality: very warm; it's worth the cost. I tried similar coats at a department store that were $50+ less, and they were not heavy at all; the long coats weighed less than a "walker" coat I own. When I tried this on at home, I could instantly tell it was warm #because I was getting warmer#. This is definitely the best long coat I've found that didn't cost a fortune.
