Rated 3 out of 5 by LoveMyDogs11 Nice robe
I received my robe as a Christmas gift but had to exchange it for another size. It came in today and I am wearing it on this 20 degree night. While it is soft and comfy, it is nowhere near as warm as my old, maybe 15 (or more) year-old LL Bean Polartec robe. The fleece is much thinner on this new one. My family thought I needed a new robe but I might have to go back to my old faithful, favorite robe. Why has the fleece been changed to a lesser quality? I have also noticed this thinner fleece on a jacket I purchased last year.

I looked for a zip front robe for quite a while before deciding on this one. I ordered a small, I am 5'3" and it is plenty big, goes to my ankles, I cuff the sleeves back. I would prefer a single zipper, the two way zipper can be a pain. Aside from these minor issues, I love this robe. It is very warm, really cozy, and I would buy it again.

I purchased the robe last year. Ended up putting it away until this fall. I had cut my leg on the double zipper and had to go to the wound center to heal the cut. I wish you would make this robe with a single zipper. It takes 3 or 4 tries before I can get it to catch. It runs very large,think I ended up with a medium,first one XL was huge. It was warm and lovely to wear but I still had to have the bottom hemmed it was so long. It is very warm and I love it once I have it on me! I wear almost nothing but LL Bean clothing,also my husband. Their clothes well very well,last almost forever. They also fit very well, except for the robe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sayde Please bring back the cream color
Bought two of these in cream several years ago. Very soft and comfortable, washes well but definitely loses some softness and plushness each time it is washed. Runs big. Would love to order a new one, but I want the same color I have now -- or if not cream, perhaps a dark or mid gray. Not everyone likes bright colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrszato Best robe I have ever bought!
Wonderful, comfy robe! Not heavy on the body, like some winter robes, is VERY soft, VERY well made, not bulky, actually goes to the ankle, and looks lovely when worn. Bought the raspberry and the color is beautiful. This will be my go-to robe again, whenever it needs to be replaced or for gift purchase! Hope L.L. Bean never stops offering this robe.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tealover Please bring back the Polartec fleece quality
I do like the style of the Fleece Zip Robe. I bought the small (I am 5 ft 5 inches tall, weigh 120). The length, arms and sizing are perfect, I like the stand up collar, it keeps me warm. What I don't like is the material. The fleece is no where near the quality of the fleece I used to buy from LLBean. The older robes I have are Polartec, soft and warm and lush. This one is not supple and smooth, does not have the same weight or warmth I used to buy from you that are good for New England's cold winters. It hasn't been a quality material now for 3-4 years. I thought I would try again this year, but no. Too bad, I am finding the quality of material for any fleece product from you is just not the same as it used to be, and I live in fleece products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SNAGGLETOOTH Perfect robe for me!
I ordered this robe to replace my rather shabby hooded, zip front robe of unknown age. Although this robe is not hooded, it zips up with the stand up collar to protect my neck and keep it warm. I love the ankle length; the sleeves are long enough to cover my arms but not billowy on the end ( a safety hazard around a stove). The fabric is so soft and thick, I can't wait to cuddle up on the sofa with my feet tucked under me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Born55 Love this bathrobe
I sent this to my always cold daughter and she was delighted! I have one of my own and I've been able to use it as a wearable blanket when I've been sick and needed to sleep sitting up. The sleeves are long enough to help keep hands warm.

Zipped robes are rare these days! Thank you LLBean for still carrying them! This robe is the thickest, coziest robe! I bought it in red and it is just the best for a cold morning! Very nice and warm. Love the pockets for a cell phone.
My one issue is the split in the front below the zipper. I realize it is because it is a two way zipper and zips up like a jacket, but I prefer a robe that is sewed all the way down to the bottom for warmth. But that is not a deal breaker. I still LOVE this robe!

I absolutely love this robe and hate having to put it away for the summer. I eyed this robe all winter long but didn't want to spend the money -- I regret this as it's worth every penny. Finally one evening, while wearing a tee shirt, yoga pants, socks, slippers, a scarf, a sweatshirt, and a fleecy vest -- in my house! -- I decided enough was enough and I was tired of being cold. In order to get the color I wanted (red), I could not size down as recommended by reviewers -- in fact, I ordered a 1X when L or XL would have been my first choice had they not been sold out. The 1X was fine! Not too big at all, and a very nice length. For reference, I'm 5'9 and size 16 - the 1X fit perfectly, with lots of room for curling up on the sofa and being comfortable.
