Rated 5 out of 5 by okiegirl Toasty warm, elegant lines, easy-care!
Just received this as a gift; wore it last weekend in MA in 18-degree weather with 40-mile wind gusts. With a mid-layer underneath, this beautiful, luxurious-looking coat with hood kept me nice & warm in brutal temps with biting winds. Can't imagine why some have written it's not warm enough! I usually wear a small, and I got a medium - glad I did, as this coat is calf-length, and a bit more fitted than my LLB faux-shearling jacket. Very easy to care for - just toss it in the washer & dryer as instructed, and it's perfect! Very happy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by utahmts a little too light weight
good if you want a light weight coat. but not if you live in cold regions. I had bought a faux shearling jacket from bean a couple of years ago and I love it.
this coat is too light weight for winter. the sleeves are too short and you can't turn them up as needed, with the option of rolling them down as needed.
I was disappointed and returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by YukonDogMum Just didn't work for me
I wanted to like this coat, but unfortunately it just didn't work for me. I sized up after reading reviews, & found it a bit too roomy. Also, for where I live, the neck area is just too open & drafty. Finally, the hood didn't work for me, as it didn't allow enough length for my neck (I'm 5'7"). The zipper worked well, though, & if you prefer the sleeves finished on the faux shearling, these are (I actually prefer being able to adjust the sleeve cuffs up or down). This wasn't too much of a set-back, though, as I also purchased two colors (brown & black) in the shorter faux shearling jacket, & the knee length faux shearling in black around the same time, & absolutely Love those ones, & one can't fault LL Bean on their wonderful return policy. If this coat fits you better, the quality & workmanship are wonderful, and it is a beautiful coat.

Very comfortable and attractive! I found this coat to be true to size. The 2-way zipper works fine and allows me to reach into my pants pockets while driving. Definitely not for bitter cold winter weather as toggle closure does not provide wind protection around the neck area and the pockets are not deep enough to warm hands but plenty warm for fall and spring. The fabric is soft and easy care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BargainShopperKy Love this coat
This coat feels light weight when you pick it up but it is very warm. I read other reviews then ordered a size up as many suggested. I normally wear a small or extra small but got the medium. It is perfect and still very comfortable with a heavy sweater underneath. I have received many compliments on this coat. I notice someone saying it looked cheap. I really do not agree. I love the coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goldielox01 Somebody got smart
I have looked for a durable dress coat for about 2 years and not been pleased with instore options. Most black coats are wool and everything clings to the material as well as my hair . I love this fabric for that reason.
As for the zipper, it is difficult to match them up because the material is thick. It serves the purpose, however of being able to loosen up the bottom when you sit. (eg driving is no struggle in this long jacket.)
I am 5'7" (120 lbs) with super long arms. I purchased the SM. The arm length is almost too short for me, but the sleeves can be cuffed a little for someone more petite in length. This coat has plenty of room and is as dressy as it is flirty. It can be down played and up played in style. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 Comfortable and attractive
My husband bought me this coat in XL and it fits perfectly. I love the lines, the two-way zipper, and the hood. The fabric is great, and fully washable. This is my second faux shearling item, and I love them both. Only little issue is a gap at the neck that lets the wind blow in. A bit of flap behind the toggle would be nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BuffaloNYCustomer Faux Shearling Toggle Coat is Nice!
I read the reviews about this coat running small in size and tight in shoulders and arms ... I found that not true at all! I found it generous in size! I did find the zipper is not really easy to use. Overall, it is a nice coat and a real bargain at the current clearance price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by WheatenLover Funky Zipper
This is a lovely coat. The double zipper is quite funky and at first I thought it was damaged. Finally got it to work properly. I bought it a size larger than usual and am glad I did so. I like to wear bulky sweaters and turtle necks in the winter. A medium would not have accomodated my particular style. Overall, a very nice coat with a difficult/funky double zipper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NatalieC Poor Quality
Material is cheap and thin - this has not kept me warm in 40 degree weather, or in low wind, so don't expect it to keep you warm in harsher conditions. Not worth the actual price - the only reason I kept it is because I got it on clearance.
