Rated 5 out of 5 by ChuckanutShopper Cozy and very comfortable
I love this robe! I bought the green color in a Petite Medium - and it seemed to me to run a bit big (I could have used a Petite Small). In any case, I kept it, and am really enjoying the lightweight warmth it provides on frosty mornings. Very comfortable! I especially like the inner tie; it means that the robe, once tied both inside and outside with the belt, remains in place, never falling open (and never letting in that cold air -- unless you want it).

Rated 1 out of 5 by LikesOldStyleQualityBest poor quality overall
I've been buying LLBean fleece robes since the late early 2000s but this robe is inferior. The fleece is awful and very cheap looking and feeling in comparison. I returned regretfully and hope next year the quality will be back to par for LLBean merchandise. (Love LLBean for more years than I care to admit!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by TJboston Long and perfect
After reading all the reviews I still couldn't believe how long this robe is, but it is perfect for me. I'm 5'11'' and it comes down to my ankles. I ordered a Large instead of my usual Medium because I'm tall and wanted it to fit my shoulders and be long enough in the arms. It is definitely super big on me, but I just wrap it around myself and I'm cozy warm.

I couldn't believe I finally found a robe long enough. I have been searching for years for a very long robe. I almost didn't buy it because it didn't list the overall length, then I read the reviews of people who thought it was too long, so I decided to try it. It is perfect for me and very cozy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mktgyr Wonder Robe!!
I read a lot of the reviews about this robe and everyone was saying that it's too long. This works to my advantage because I am tall. This Robe is great in every sense of the word. It comes to my ankles which is perfect. The sleeves are even long enough for me. I ordered it larger than I needed so that I could really wrap-up in it. It works great. It's soft, comfortable and the Aubergine color is fantastic!! It's difficult to find robes that are long enough for someone who is tall. Bravo to LL Bean!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kero Way too long
These robes are cut way too long. I returned a regular length, reordered in a petite, and had to return that as well. This was to be a gift for someone taller than me, but for a reference: I am 5'2" and the petite came to my ankles. I was so disappointed because the elderberry color is very pretty and the robe is very warm and snuggly. I can't imagine going up and down stairs in this robe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by knitknit Warm and attractive robe
It is sometimes hard for a garment to be both warm and attractive, but this robe is both. I have been looking for a nice winter robe for some time and this fits the bill. The fabric is a nice weight--substantial but not too heavy.
Based on other reviews, I ordered the robe in a petite length which works perfectly on my 5' 5" frame.
If I could change one thing, I would prefer the pockets to be on seam pockets rather than the patch pockets. When I wrap the robe, the patch pockets always are always uneven.

This robe was soft enough but was just too long. I'm 5'5'' and it dragged on the floor. I might have known this if I had read all the reviews before ordering. This was a huge disappointment so I returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BJBSG Polartec robes
Please bring back the Polartec bathrobes. They were the best you made, much warmer than the heavy fleece now available. In northern California a warm robe is needed in the areas near the water and the mountains. The extra cost would be worth it to have the comfort Polartec provided.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tealover whatever happened to Polartec fleece robes?
Just disappointed and unfortunately will return it. I wish it was made from Polartec, that is the most plush and warmest fleece material. I was hoping this women's robe would be my "go to" wrap around winter robe that kept me really warm. Not so, the fleece is quite thin, certainly thinner than other fleece robes I have had in the past. Also, I am 5.6 inches tall and I got size small, the length is a bit too long, and as some others have mentioned, it is a bit "tripable", which might be a problem especially on stairs.
PLEASE make the same style robe using a plush Polartec material, I bet you get plenty of buyers :-)
