Rated 5 out of 5 by CSHshopper Real surprise
I ordered this coat because it is so easy to return something. Surprise, surprise, the coat is beautiful and fits. I usually wear a size 10 to 12, and took a chance getting it in size 10. I am 5'7" and the coat is just long enough to fit with a boot, which I tried right away. I am really pleased. It's the first time that I bought a coat online, and it was a success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTW21 Great Value!
Great fit without the cost of the high-priced ones at department stores. Very warm. I bought the dark brown over 10 years ago & its still fine. I just wanted a different color and bought the black.

Love the coat, but wish it was 12 inches longer. It's just a little too short. Ends up just below the knees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WinterCoatShopper Warm and perfect!
Love love this coat! I shopped around for quite awhile before finally deciding on this coat, and I'm glad I chose this one over other brands. The thinsulate is very warm and blocks the wind. I went out on a 20 degree day with strong winds the other day to walk up the block to the post office (ten minute walk). On the way back I could feel slight perspiration on my back. I'm fairly tall 5'8" and the sleeves are actually long enough for my arms, and the coat itself is long enough to come down to the tops of my boots. I was in between sizes when measuring and took a chance and ordered the larger and am glad I did. It gave me room for a sweater underneath and fits me perfectly. I've already gotten several comments on how nice it looks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by belaine Very Warm Winter Coat
This is a very warm winter coat between the Italian wool and the thinsulate lining, I feel toasty. It is not as long as my previous winter coat and some of my longer skirts hang below the hem of the coat. The size runs true to fit and is roomy enough for sweaters or blazers to be worn underneath. The coat arrived very wrinkled from being folded for shipping and it was not easy to steam iron them away. I do love the rich color and feel of the Italian Wool.
I live in Little Rock AR where the temperatures can drop into the teens and the wind chill will make it feel much colder than that.

This is a beautiful coat. The quality of the wool is just what I had hoped for. The thinsulate lining makes it warmer than it looks. And it looks elegant. I'm 5 ft. 2 1/2 and weigh 107 pounds, and the 4 petite is perfect.

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!
