Rated 5 out of 5 by rvlady2 great robe
I was tired of my wrap robe and wanted something different. It weighs a little more than my other fleece robe but I think it will be fine in cold weather. The fit seems true to size and I like the fact that it is ankle length. The two way zipper is also nice. I got the dark red and it is very pretty. It hasn't been cold enough to wear yet bit I think I will enjoy it this winter.

Just what I had hoped for. I'm 5'4'' and the petite size was much better than the regular.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bellaberg comfortable
While I thought I was ordering the same robe that I have had for years and have loved, but wanted a new color, I find that my new robe doesn't live up to what I have been used to and am a little disappointed in LL Bean because of it. Robe is very comfortable, not as warm and the weight is not as substantial as my older one, and I would have paid a little more to get the very same quality as my other robe. Looks exactly the same, pretty color, and fit is perfect. My only complaint is that I hope LL Bean is not going to continue to lower their quality, which will eventually lower their reputation for selling excellent quality items. I am keeping the robe because I think it is the best one LL Bean offers right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MileanaShoper Best robe I ever owned.
I have purchased and owned this robe for over 10 years. I live north of Reno, NV at 5200 feet in a small valley separate from the rest of the area. We live on a ranch and it is quite cold in the winter. The first thing I grab when I get up in the morning is my LL Bean robe. It keeps me warm while I start up the wood stove. This is my 4th robe and the only robe I ever wish to own. I have always wanted a red one and have often ordered it too late in the season and the red has already been sold by then. My last colors have been dark green but this year I am ordering it in enough time to get my red robe. Over the past two years I have lost over 100 pounds and my last robe keeps me warm, although it just hangs on me. I am looking forward to a red robe that will finally fit my new body. I will continue to order this robe as long as I can still wear and need a colorful warm robe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peartree Warm robe with nice long sleeves
I bought this robe to replace another LL Bean fleece robe I had for years and loved. There are a few small changes to this new one particularly in the collar which is now smaller and more of a stand up design. I did prefer the older collar style but this isn't a deal breaker for me.
I'm 5'6" and about 135 lbs and bought the medium which is perfect. Lots of room to be comfy and cozy but not huge. The sleeves are long which for me is wonderful as I have long arms and sleeves are usually to short for me. These sleeves actually come past my wrists which I love.
The length is also nice and long and it comes to an inch above my ankle. The zipper is smooth and opens up or down easily and the fleece seems like good quality.

I love this robe. It is very slenderizing. The zipper up and zip from the bottom are a great feature. This robe is nice and warm and with the adjustable zippers it allows for more body heat loss if desired. I read that it ran large. I am glad I ordered a small because usually a medium is a better fit. I would have given this robe a 5 star except for the arm length is made for an orangutan. Not really a problem as the sleeves do roll up nicely and do not roll down by themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crys77 Heavy quality fleece
Love love love this robe. I do have to fold the sleeves up once, but don't mind that. I am 5'3" and ordered the small. Perfect length for me. Almost hits the floor. Wanted plenty of room to wear over my clothes if I want to, as I work at home. Very good quality and warm!

This is my fifth year on this robe. It is my go-to on those early, winter mornings, when I come downstairs, the fire needs to be restarted, and I need something cozy. After years and years in the dryer it is still great, but I'm thinking I'll get a new one because I'm sure the fleece will be fresher. I just wish they offered it in ivory, which I think would be a decadent, great choice. I'll have to go with the elderberry. Five stars!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mammag2 Warm, pretty color
I wanted a winter robe for warmth. I am 5'2" and about 120# and the XS was a good fit. The length came down to just above ankle height. The sleeves are a little long but you can always roll them up if you need to do something with your hands. The color ,Elderberry, is a pretty deep plum color. I gave it 4 stars because I would have liked it longer but the bigger size would have been too big everywhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sayde Just bought a second one
Wrote a review before ordering, asking for this to be offered in gray or black. Then decided to order one, in the cream color. After wearing it for a day or so, used the $10 coupon to order a second one, also cream. Yes it is loose and the sleeves are long but it is so soft and cozy. I had returned two other robes from other vendors and was starting to think I would never find anything I liked to replace my ancient fleece robe, no longer made. This is just a delight. The cream is totally impractical but such a treat. At the sale price plus coupon I can indulge in a second one to alternate with the first. If this robe is offered in a gray color next season I will buy a third. Please maintain the quality -- would not like to pay more but would rather do that than discover my (next) new robe is less wonderful than this one.
