Rated 3 out of 5 by ShibasRock Great and practical, but odd fit
I had this coat for a season. It was plenty warm unless the winter day was very windy, at which point the coat was no longer sufficient and needed to be layered. My great problem with it is the fit. The way the pockets are cut, the coat creates a bubble on the belly, and I actually had a few people inquire if I was pregnant. Definitely not what a woman would want (unless she was, indeed, pregnant). Thus, I'm contemplating returning the coat, although it works well for most reasonable winter conditions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PADweller Won't know until Winter
Bought this on the advice of friends. It's amazingly light weight, but I won't know how well it keeps me warm for a few months. It seemed to run small over the chest; I had to order one size up to get a fit that will allow winter clothes underneath. It makes me look a little like a down sausage, but if it's warm, I'll manage. Only other concern is the fabric -- it appears fairly lightweight and easy to rip. I'll update the rating and write up after the first few cold snaps!

This is a beautiful coat. The color is nicer than pictured.
The fit, in my opinion, is consistent with LLBean sizing. (I usually wear a M in other brands, but in LLBean I get a S)
I love the fact that this is warm without being super puffy. That isn't necessary with this coat! This coat can roll up into a small area, too, so it's easy to pack. In my opinion, this is the best down jacket out there. It is fashionable and functional.
I'd love a coat like this with a belt and just a touch more dressy, for work!

I had the shorter version of this coat and it had ripped. I must tell you that LLBean's customer service is amazing and there policy too!!! They gave me a refund for the coat and I was able to order this longer version instead and I LOVE IT!!! It has a hood which the other one didn't have and the length is perfect!!! Now I can wear it with a dress and tights and feel good about the length!!!! AWESOME!!!!
I totally recommend it!!!! Thanks LLBean you guys ROCK!!!!

Cannot believe I got a higher fill coat for less money than the most famous brand. And, it is very flattering (as flattering as a down coat can be!) The smaller seaming looks less bulky and appears to reduce waist size. I did order one size up to accommodate heavy sweaters and fleece. Thank you LL Bean for making in petite sizes. Perfect length on coat and sleeves

Rated 5 out of 5 by asmithsgirl Held its own: MI winter 2014
I thankfully bought this coat in fall 2013 prior to the record breaking winter this year in Michigan. This coat was so light weight, but I was never cold this winter. The fit and style were flattering, and I received a number of compliments. I liked the long length to keep me nice and warm, though it was a little harder to zip. I have not had any issues with the arm/sleeve length as mentioned by some reviewers -- for me it fit perfectly, unlike some I coats I tried on at the mall that were too long or too wide open at the wrist. The coats at the department stores were either not flattering, too heavy and bulky, not warm enough, or a combination of these issues, so I took the chance and ordered this one without being able to try it on. I would like to see this come in more colors!
I have not figured out how to keep the hood tight -- my old LL Bean coat had a simple mechanism that this one does not seem to have, so this one did not stay tight for me when I needed it to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eniemenie Love this coat
I am 5'2, 115 lbs and purchased the Petite Small in black. It is soooooo light wirght ,yet very warm. I love the hood on very cold, windy, or snowy days. We've had a very cold winter and this coat has gotten quite the workout and has pulled through.
There is room for imporvement. The zipper should be a large/wide zipper like one would find on ski gear. This coat is a bit of a pain to bend over and find the zipper apparatus to initiate zipping it up. A zipper storm flap would be nice as well. I would like larger pockets, but I love the fleece lining in the pockets. I would have liked fleece around the inside cuff area and an adjustable cuff. I suppose. With just a few changes, it would be absolutely perfect. I would pay more money for these features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lunamiela Great coat but not as warm as stated
I just ordered this coat to replace a long down coat that I have been wearing all winter and have gotten sick of. While I love how light and flattering this coat is, I would not wear it in temps below 15 degrees. I have long commutes which include walks over the Chicago River and this coat is not warm enough for those walks in frigid weather. I also wish the sleeves were longer. I sized up to a medium so that I could wear thick sweaters underneath and while the sizing works, the sleeves are still a bit short for my liking. I am 5'6" and weigh 115 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LNHShopper Mid-thigh length would have been better.
Like this coat. Warm & light. Really wish it was mid-thigh length instead of knee-length.
