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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOLOL Cozy Robe
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jnetepie It's the BEST
Finally, the robe I have wanted to find for years. Comfortable, not too bulky and warm. I tend to stay in it too long, before I get dressed. I followed recommendations that it runs big, and did order a size down; and it fits perfectly. However, soon I'll have to put it away until next winter, it's April.....but then I did have to scrape the snow and ice off my window yesterday here in New Jersey. Don't hesitate to buy it...the best robe I've ever purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mommycozy So warm and cozy without the heavy weight
I can use these warm and comforting robes in 3 seasons because I am usually tired and cold at the end of the day. They are long enough to envelop me and roomy enough. Now that I have them, I don't know how I ever got on without them before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by purplecrone Lighter weight fleece
I love these robes. I just bought my third one. The problem is that every time I order a new one, the fleece is a lighter weight than before. I get a good 3 years out of each robe. The only reason for a new one is because a puppy chews a hole in one or a burn occurs from contact with wood stove. They would probably last forever otherwise. Please, LLBean, use the heavy fleece in these great robes. It's starting to get too thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SLPretired Perfect length, warm, and comfortable!
At first I was hesitant to buy this robe because they no longer had petites in stock. Since it was on sale and the price was right, I thought I would buy it and hem it if need be. I am 5' 2" and the misses medium size fits perfectly! I was pleasantly surprised. I am so pleased with this robe, it is warm and comfortable. I love the zipper front because I don't like a tie around my waste. Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaWaters Great for years
I bought this robe over 10 years ago, and have loved it ever since. The only reason I am buying another is because the zipper failed.
