Rated 2 out of 5 Winter fleece lined winter 3/4 coat
I do not like to be negative but you need to know.........
I love this coat and hate this coat! It is super warm and is the second coat like it I purchased. I returned the first because the zipper would not stay secured at the base so If I bent down it all came open....it was replaced by LLbean and the second coat has the same problem--wonderful coat at the mercy of a plastic (instead of metal) anchor at the base of the zipper. What a shame!!!! All that quality down the drain for a cheaper zipper.

Bought the plum color while visiting Mt. Washington in Large Petite. Coat shrunk after washing sleeves are now to short and it is uncomfortable in shoulders. I will never where again. Also the coat makes a lot of noise when you move. Runs small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by quinoalover Warm, but noisy
Plum wine color: I was undecided about the color when the jacket arrived. It almost has a grayish haze to it in certain light. But I have received many compliments on the color from others.
Warmth: Kept me warm while out in the blizzard, shoveling snow
Fit: Sleeves are long, but otherwise, it fit as expected
Care instructions: Machine washed and dried it and it came out fine
Drawbacks: The outer fabric makes a lot of noise when you move; the front zipper is finicky.
Value: The $99 was reasonable, but the noise it makes when I move gives the impression of a cheap garment
I bought this jacket in November, 2015. I waited to write a review until I could give it a "warmth test", which it got last weekend when a major snowstorm/blizzard roared through the Mid-Atlantic and dumped two feet of snow in our area.
My usual size varies from XL to 1X, but I ordered this in 2X so that I would have room for layering. I am glad I did because I do not like tight-fitting clothes. This jacket fit as I expected it to, except that the sleeves are too long.
I have extra room in the torso of the jacket, even with a tee shirt and medium weight sweater under it.
I haven't figured out how to use the drawstrings on the hood. I will have to ask my daughter how to draw them closed.
The overall look of the jacket is boxy, so it wouldn't be the jacket I wear to meet friends for lunch. But this jacket has been the one I reach for much more often than I expected to, for running errands and working in the yard.
All in all, the pros outweigh the cons, and I am well satisfied with the purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by japperdog great materials, well put together, but poor fit
I wanted so badly to love this jacket! The material it is made of seems very durable, the inside is super soft and when I tried it on I could tell that it would be very warm. The stitching was high quality, definitely a jacket that would last for years and years. But it was very boxy, no shape to it at all. It does not fit in real life the way it fits the model in the picture. The sleeves are far to wide and a tad short and I could almost fit another human in the jacket with me. I do not think that sizing down would solve the problem because then the sleeves would be even shorter on me. Sadly I will be returning this item.

I found the perfect winter coat. The weather here has been between 10 degrees above zero to 10 below. I haven't been outside for extended periods of time, but walking through the parking lot to get to the car a couple times a day, the coat has kept me warm. The color was beautiful and just as it looked on the website. I like that it isn't bulky. It is true to size and I like that it goes a little past my bottom to keep me warm. I would definitely recommend this coat to others.

This jacket was on sale, so I bought it in black, size small. Winter's been mild so far but I've worn this jacket in 20 degree weather with no problem. I usually wear it with a mid-layer, either an inexpensive fleece or my Primaloft vest. When the temperature has been colder (mid to late teens), I'll wear both the fleece and the vest for a tighter fit but with good wind and rain resistance to keep me warm. I suppose that in single digit temperatures and below that this jacket alone would not keep someone warm, but between layers and a good wool scarf, hat and gloves, I feel that I'll weather a cold winter just fine. I'm 5'3 and weigh about 137 pounds with a slightly fit build - the small just fit with layers.

I've been dying to write a rave review of this coat since it came in the mail. The quality is second to none. I ordered a 2X because I have a large chest...it fits perfectly. Not too loose, not too tight. What drew me to this coat in particular was the True Violet color...it's so pretty. The fine details on this coat are much appreciated...the matching colored zipper, the super soft & warm fur-like inside the hood and in the pockets (sooooo warm!), LLBean etched on the sleeve, and the overall look & feel of the coat. This is absolutely my favorite winter coat; it's adorable, and SO warm. I even had my monogram sewed on it!
LOVE this coat - it's a winner!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mary312 Nice fall jacket
It's a nice jacket, and I like the fleece lining. The sleeves are tight enough so that I can't wear more than a long sleeved t-shirt or a thin flannel shirt underneath. It's perfect for temperatures in the thirties and forties, but not really warm enough for temperatures below that. It's great for spring and fall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by alphasilverback useless pockets
Why is it that ALL women's pockets are shallow little things of no use for carrying anything such as a car key. One has to carry a bag at all times and I don't want to when I'm out with my dog or just trotting along by myself. Men's coats have so many functional pockets, including inside. I have ordered men's for this reason, but the sleeves are most always too long.
Wake up and give us pockets!
