Rated 5 out of 5 by AliciaM Great Coat!
Bought this coat last year in the Navy and loved it so much I just bought the jacket today in the blue. I wear the coat to work and plan to wear the jacket during the cold months when I am walking my dogs in the rain and snow. Can't wait to get it. Fits great and is light weight which I love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CambGirl needs removable hood
Almost perfect, but desperately needs a removable hood. I am returning because this lack of flexibility is driving me crazy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lovebulldogs Nice coat, but not as warm as expected
This coat is perfect for cool days 40 degrees and above, but not for cold days. I expected it to be much warmer, because it was rated to -35 degrees. I wore it several times when it was between 30 and 10 degrees and It did not keep me warm for even a few minutes. I am disappointed. Definitely not for cold climates.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AlisonCA Disappointed
I bought this coat hoping it would keep me warm. The description says it keeps warm to -35 degrees. But this winter was unusually cold with many days in the teens. The body of the coat and the hood did keep me warm but the arms did not. The description says "Thinsulate? Insulation polyester added in the sleeves for more warmth." But they did not feel insulated. Also the inside sleeve cuffs did not keep the wind out as they were not tight around my wrists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LivLovesBean Warm and Cozy in Rainy GA
I ordered this jacket to survive the rainy, cold winters we have in Georgia. While we may not get feet of snow, the constant drizzle and cool air has been tamed by this great coat. For me, its super warm and the hood helps me stay dry while walking the dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BUDDYGIRL Just what I wanted!
This coat fit perfectly. I am a 10-12 and I bought the Large, regular. The pockets are deep and warm. It's perfect for jumping in and out of the car on cold, windy, snowy days. The fabric is crinkly but I'm used to it now. It is also water resistant. People have complained about the zipper. It is backward from most women's zipped coats. (The tabs are on the left.) The trick to the zipper is this: Make sure the bottom zipper tab (it's one of those 2-way jobs) is ALL the way down to the bottom left position. Place the top zipper tab on top of the bottom one and make sure it's snugly in place. Only then, do you place the the right zipper bottom into the tabs. It will fit perfectly and will zip up the way it should. I learned the hard way, trying to dislodge the zipper with the tabs not in the bottom
positon and the same with unzipping. All tabs need to be at the bottom for zipping and unzipping.

This coat is warm but not bulky. I love the material. It really looks good, and is comfortable too. The only problem is sometimes you have to work at the zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TootyTa Order this coat it is THE best for all conditions!
I ordered this on sale and waited three weeks because it was back ordered. I have other winter coats, but I have only worn this one since it arrived. This coat fits true to size with room for a heavy sweater underneath. The zipper can be annoying but the overall perfection of the coat makes up for it. The styling is very flattering. It is the perfect length, light weight and surprisingly, very warm. I am a teacher an we go outside with the children in all weather. This has been quite a winter, weather - wise and I have never been cold or in any way disappointed by this coat. It is absolutely perfect. Order this coat in your regular size, you will not be disappointed! Thank you, once again, LLBean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MNsolitude Winter coat
Loved the looks and feel of the coat, but have to give it a poor rating because of the defective zipper. Wore the coat only about 6 times, and zipper quit working. Am returning item tomorrow. Would replace zipper myself--but figure I paid for a working coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Soccermomjen LOVE!!
I LOVE this coat! I am a soccer mom who wanted a flattering coat to wear to chilly night games and this one is perfect. I wore it when the weather was in the low 30's with just a long sleeve tee underneath and stayed warm the entire game (2hrs). I love that it is long enough to cover your bum when sitting (especially on cold metal bleachers), and the pockets are in just the right spot to keep your hands toasty even without gloves.
I am 5'2 and weigh 115 lbs (34B). I originally bought the Petite Small which turned out to be perfect everywhere except around middle. I exchanged it for the Petite XS and it fit great with plenty of room to layer underneath.
