Rated 4 out of 5 by turboprofesora Kingfield Fleece Coat
This jacket is warm, comfy and classy. I love wearing it. My only complaint is the horrible lint it attracts. I dry it in the dryer just to get rid of it, but in between washes I have to use massive amounts of packaging tape to get the lint off. I have to this every time I wear it. This is the only drawback of this nice jacket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by happyascanbe Not the same jacket
I ordered a Kingfield jacket AND coat eight years ago, and they look exactly the same after eight years of heavy wash and wear. I've gotten smaller with age, so I recently ordered a Kingfield jacket in XS. I was shocked by the difference in quality. The old product had a suede-like exterior that still gets compliments today, and a deep, plush sherpa lining. Even the pockets had a sherpa lining. The current jacket is just a thick fleece sewn into the style of a jacket. It's about 25% of the quality of my old jacket, and barely worth the sale price. I will keep it to wear around the house (I turn down the thermostat when kids are at school) or when I do yard work, because it's very warm as fleece jackets go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by citygirlcountrygirl Impressed!
I got this coat in the Dark Plum Heather. I am 5'4", 156 lbs and ordered a Large. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this coat since not all the reviews were 5 star. It's not "fleecy" at all but is a smooth dense fabric which could pass for wool. It could be dressy or casual. The princess line is very flattering on my pear shaped figure. The buttonholes are not ordinary bound slits but the kind you would get from a tailor made from inset suede fabric. I wore it for the first time today with temps in the mid 40's and breezy. It kept me warm. Attractive styling, beautifully made and practical too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lee61 Not good for me!
This jacket is very nice and well made, but did not look good on me... It looked too boxy, and I felt like a brown bear in it. So, back it went..

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nausiica WAY too large on the body
Once again I am disappointed by the large sizing of your X-Small tops. I am 5'2" and 110 pounds and I figured X-Small Petite would work for me. Nope ! The sleeve length and the coat length are fine yet there is a 2 inches free space gap on each side of my body.
LLBean, you need to realize what X-Small and Petite mean: It means we are small little things, this item would be large enough for a Size 8 to 10 lady, I am size 2 and it looks awful (even with a sweater inside). Perhaps you could offer an XXS size that would be tighter around the waist and torso.
I gave 2 stars because the fabric looks nice and warm. Although keep in mind this is not a "high end" looking coat, it is barely good looking enough for a weekend helping your mom in her garden. Not for the city or work. But definitely sweet for the one looking for warmth and comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nolamomm Great warm jacket
I purchased the deep loden heather and am looking forward to wearing this comfy everyday jacket when the weather gets cold. I am 5'2", 118 lbs, small build, and small to average bust and the XS fits me fine! I have room to layer. The fleece is soft and the color is beautiful. The jacket sleeves are too long so I need to roll them up and a nice plaid pattern shows so it looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canoehead Great jacket
Just bought this in the new grey color. Love it - it feels warm and snugly, is casual but still looks smart. The grey color is gorgeous and will go with everything. I am 5"8" 155 Lbs and the medium fit perfectly. Can't wait to wear it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2casual4nyc Great quality, fit
I am 5 ft. tall, 115 lbs and the petite small fits perfectly. I like that the sleeves are a little long on me so I can roll them up and see the pretty fleece lining. I bought last season's raspberry color below the sale price when an additional 20% off popped up on my computer, so I feel like I got a steal given the quality of this coat. I won't be wearing it any time soon but it feels like it may be warm enough for the winter months if it doesn't get too cold. It's not your ordinary fleece. It almost looks and feels like wool, without the itch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by baywalker too heavy and thick
This jacket is beautifully made and the color raspberry is lovely. However, it is a very thick double fleece and made me feel like a polar bear. I love fleece but even in the winter this jacket would be heavier than I like. When it is really cold I prefer down because it is warm and yet not so heavy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanOnMe Kingfield Fleece Coat - PETITE XS
The Petite XS on 105' x 5' - is much shorter than on pictured model, and wider throughout. Maybe I am not petite built although I am 5 feet tall. I can recommend to similar size gals to order an XS in Regular/Misses with the thought that it would be longer and fit snugger on them. And a request to LLBean - Please consider starting an XXS size. About color: the deep raspberry heather is beautiful. The item came with no tags attached.
