Rated 5 out of 5 by AlaskanB Comfortable and Love It!!
I bought this LL Bean Coat, insulated in the Loden Misses Petite XS, October 27, 2013, turned out we had -15 below to -20 below temperatures (with Arctic wind) in November and to be honest I wasn't sure if this coat would keep me warm enough and indeed it kept me warm enough with a thin turtleneck and a thick sweater, I also wore the coat in the low 30s to mid 30s degree temperatures where it was too warm for me, so this coat is perfect for Alaska bitter cold temperatures. It is a really good fit for me being 5'4" and at 120 lbs. I have bought LL Bean clothing and do love the quality. Because of the excellent quality and warmth it would be perfect if they would open a store here in Anchorage, Alaska!! Thank You LL Bean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by IowaEm Love the style, fit, color
I ordered the maroon, which is a very rich, warm color. Though three colors isn't a huge selection, I really liked all three options. I don't like looking drab, but a lot of what's available to women these days as far as coats go are in shades that really don't work for me. So I was very pleased to find something vibrant but NOT lime green, hot pink, or turquoise.
I'm about 5'2" and 100 lbs, and the small was a perfect fit. It gave me plenty of room to layer a fluffy sweatshirt under and still move my arms around. I've never felt like I was swimming in it though.
I love how versatile it is. I wear jeans and casual blouses most days, but sometimes my job requires me to dress a little more upscale. When I walk into the office, I never feel like my coat is competing with the rest of my outfit. I've gotten so many compliments on how snazzy it looks.
I live in a state that gets pretty chilly, and I'm always a little on the colder side. I am very comfortable walking around outside in this coat and a light fleecy or sweater underneath. I think for serious playing around in the snow, I'm going to probably pull my old water-proof, zippered, hooded beast of a coat out of the closet. For just everyday use, though, this is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cbarbrun3 Great Coat!
After reading the many reviews about the sizing, I bought a large. Usually, I would buy an extra large. It came last night and I am thrilled with it! Just the right length, size and sleeve length. I can even fold the sleeves for the cuff and it is still a good length. The lining is cozy and just the right weight for an in-between coat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Carelou Thinsulate Barn Coat
The thinsulate barn coat I ordered turned out to be too large, therefore, I returned it. I am currently awaiting the flannel lined barn coat to come. I hope this one will fit better. Although the coat was too large, the quality seemed very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by brucefan Just What I Was Looking For
I was in need of a winter coat that could double for different occasions. This seems to fit the bill. And so far it's kept me
nice and warm.
Would definitely recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by nhdreamin Huge sizing!
I love these jackets and have been wearing them for years, all spring and all fall. I recently tried to replace the size medium that I've had for 2 or 3 years because I lost a little weight and it was too big. I ordered a small and an x-small. Well, the sizing has increased hugely on these jackets. The x-small was the same size as my old medium! It's way too big even with a heavy sweater under it. I am 5' 6" and 115 lbs. I think I would have to gain 15-20 lbs. for it to fit. I gave it 5 stars because it's a great jacket but I'm so disappointed that there's no size for me. Please, please offer an xx-small.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fey22 Sizing is way off...
I read the reviews and ordered a medium, thinking it would fit. This coat is beautifully made but it's HUGE and I do mean huge...and boxy. I really wanted to love this coat but I will be returning it and will not be ordering a smaller size. I am 5'8" and a solid 145 lbs. so ordering a small seems ridiculous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by miamariesmom JUST WHAT I WANTED
This jacket is perfect. I sized down from medium to small because of other reviews and it fits perfectly. It's warm enough for most fall and winter days in Indiana and great for long walks with the dog. I bought the dark green and the color is what I expected. It's a little boxy and has a rustic look but that's typical barn jacket. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by outandactive Great quality but large
I orginally purchased the flannel lined barn coat in Rustic Red. The color is beautiful but thought it was too thin, so I ordered the insulated version in the same size and boy was it large. I am 5'9 and medium build, I had too much room so I'm sending it back but it is a quality jacket. Going to order the medium. It seemed to have the warmth for late fall early winter.
