Rated 5 out of 5 by NiaV Love this coat!
Absolutely love this coat! Got it in Petite, Small for 5"3, 120lbs. The sleeves are just right as is the length in general. The hood is great for windy days and the whole coat is excellent at stopping the wind. Have been wearing it in the cold Canadian winter and couldn't be happier. I do wear it with a sweater underneath and have had no problems getting chilly as some reviewers have mentioned. It is very light and packable, I ended up buying another colour because I love it so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deniseas Lightest coat ever, and very warm.
I bought this coat to take the dog out every day in the winter. I have since Soren it out to dinner, because it is so light and comfortable. Recently my heater stopped working in my car. I hate to wear a coat when I drive, but this is so light it seems like you have no coat on at all. It is warm and the old blocks out any wond. I like the good because it is wide and does not mess up your hair. The pockets are like heaters. The fabric lining is instantly warm. I wear a size 10 or 12 but I bought it in a large in order to but layers under it. I have more than enough room for that. I wish the sleeves were a bit longer, but I do have very long arms. It is warm. I have a ski jacket that is a bit warmer , but overall this coat is very warm.. I am thinking of buying this in a shorter version as well. I purchased the long so I could take the dog out with only my pj,s on in the early morning. It is great for that. It looks slimming on, too. Love, love love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 Long Downtek Coat
When it finally got cold enough to wear this coat, I nearly froze. I think they forgot to include the downtek fill since I can feel the sides of each panel with little between the two. Could I have received a flawed wrap?
Anyway, I am returning this coat for a warmer, down coat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by adido Disappointed
I bought this coat in August in preparation for a brutal winter. Now that the cold has finally arrived I am really disappointed. This coat doesn?t keep me warm. The cold air goes right up the bottom of the coat. If I?m really active it is ok but if I?m standing still for any period of time I get chilled.
On the positive side it is wind resistant and the water repellent fabric is excellent.
I am going to return the coat for a warmer one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oakleysmom L.L. Bean NAILED IT!
Love this coat. Wanted to buy it last winter but waited too long and it sold out in store and online. True to size; I wear a size 8 top but a size 12 pant and a medium fit well across the hips (didn't have to go to a large). Hood is well cut; it isn't too big that it falls halfway down your face and doesn't fall back, either. Zipper comes up to the neck just below the chin, hits perfectly. I found it absolutely warm enough in 30 degree temps, surprised that another reviewer didn't find it warm. I wear it to the office over a business suit and I wear it over jeans to walk my dog, looks great in any situation. Extremely pleased with my purchase!

Rated 1 out of 5 by iluvdogs Kinda disappointed
I wore this coat the other day walking the dog, it was about 26 degrees out with a slight breeze and I felt the air go right through this coat. I couldn't believe it!! I also had a turtleneck and sweatshirt on underneath it. I got the purple, love the color and the length. Hate the stupid fuzzy trim on the hood. Why do they put that on there?? I have a long down coat I got 20 years ago from LL Bean that was/is such a warm coat. I thought it was time for a new coat, and was so hoping this one would be the same warmth but it's not. Want to keep it but will probably return it. So sad. They just don't make them like they used to anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeagullInn gorgeous coat!
The coat is beautiful - I love it. I had had an LL Bean down coat for over 35 years, and had never been cold in it, but I almost got stuck forever in it because the zipper locked, and I decided it was time for a new one. This one is so much lighter in weight, so much slimmer fitting, and the icy gray color looks perfect with my gray hair. Tested it on one cold 25 degree day, and it was toasty, haven't tried 0 degrees, but feel sure it will pass the test. Someone asked what my husband had given me for Christmas, and I said "A new coat, but he doesn't know about it yet." I'm looking forward to wearing it for another 35 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nasir wonderfully comfortable, great fit
I didn't think this item would be worth the price, however I haven't found another item that I am more comfortable with than my LLBean 850. I wish I could trade in my two furs for another style of a LL Bean coat or jacket.
I am very satisfied with my lightweight, long length waterproof insulated 850.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Blondie15 Not for those who get cold easily
Bought this coat for the coldest of weather. Gave it a try in 40 degree weather, with a warm sweater underneath, walking my dog. Did not keep me warm. Have another jacket, which although short, keeps me warmer. I tend to get cold easily, so wanted to post this for those who also do. This coat doesn't measure up to keeping one warm at 20 degrees.
