Rated 5 out of 5 by BlessdchikInNY I LOVE This Coat! It's PERFECT!
I LOVE this LL Bean coat! I haven't invested in a good winter coat in quite a few years, so it was a pretty big deal for me, shopping around for the PERFECT coat. I looked around several different sites/stores, and actually bought one from another good company, but I ended up returning it, as it just didn't meet my expectations, even though it was warm, it was frumpy looking, and not stylish enough for me, do I returned it.
I then looked carefully around the LL BEAN website, really comparing coats, looking for something practical and warm, yet more stylish & fitted looking. I spotted this one, and it seemed to meet all my criteria for the coat I was looking for.
I bought a Women's SIZE SMALL, in Misses. I bought the Gunmetal Grey color. I just received it in the mail the other day, and just wore it outside today. I LOVE IT! It is quite warm, as today the temps were in the 30's here in NY. I also love the fit, and the fact that it has a cinched waist, that can be cinched and adjusted, to give a more fitted, feminine, stylish look.
I am 5'4" about 130 lbs., and the SIZE SMALL seems just perfect, I can comfortably wear a sweater underneath, yet the coat was very warm just with a long sleeve tee underneath.
I love the simplicity of this LL BEAN coat, yet it is stylish, yet not overly so, simple, yet feminine.
Deep pockets, all zippers work great. I have not had any problem with feathers coming out, maybe just a few very small ones here or there, but nothing at all that is a problem.
I'm a VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER. I LOVE MY COAT!

Great coat. Not a lot of bulk, which is nice, yet is very warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joanlizzie Warm and comfortable
I love it! The coat arrived just in time for me to shovel a few inches of snow and I could not believe how light weight and warm it is. My 15-year old parka is ready for the donation box. I agree that a scarf is a good idea to keep the neck warm. Zipper works well, size is good with a layer underneath. (I am a 12 or Med. in most clothing, like "L" in jackets so I can add a layer.) Added tip -- I am 80 yrs old, and shovel snow wearing LLB "stabilicers" . Thanks, LLB!

Rated 4 out of 5 by landnmom great coat
I looked for 6 months for a coat, ordered quite a few, this was the one. I found it sized perfectly, love the maroon color, it does have a little static, I just rub a bounce over it. I have not had an issue with feathers escaping. A zipper for the pockets would be nice, but they are deep, I have not lost my keys or gloves. The adjustable waist draw cord would be nicer on the inside, but it really doesn't distract from the jacket.

Coat is warm, comfortable and not too bulky.
I did find that some of the down "leaked" out, and found feathers on my cloths. Overall super happy with my purchase:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by 75andhappy Down 3/4 length coat
I had no intention of purchasing a coat when visiting L L Bean recently but this particular coat caught my eye, and when I tried on the extra small size, it looked so nice, fit so well, and felt so good I purchased it. I also like the color, a silver grey, maybe called platinum. The drawstring waist made the fit snuggly close and more attractive on me. I really like the fact that L L Bean carries extra small size items on clothing for small ladies like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PattieD Perfect winter coat
I have been looking for a winter coat that would not be bulky to have to find a place for at all of my sons' indoor sporting events. I always had to sacrifice warmth for that. Now I have it all. I can't believe how warm this coat is, and comfortable, all while being so light weight. Exactly what I have been looking for for years. May get another in a different color I love it so much. Thank you, LL Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by luvLLinNY not warm
This is a very pretty coat, but after having it for a week I sent it back. Very disappointing since I had hoped this down coat would be very warm with the 650 down, however, even on a mild winter day I froze while wearing it. There are no cuffs in the sleeves to keep the cold air and snow out, and a higher zippered neckline would have helped to keep out the cold. However the style was very nice and flattering - it just wasn't warm. I'm thankful LL Bean has fantastic customer service and returns are easy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WashDCCommuter Cold Arms and Leaking Feathers
For the most part I like the fit of this coat. However, the sleeves are wide enough to allow the cold air and wind to zoom right inside making your arms quite cold. I would prefer the sleeves to have either an adjustable snap or Velcro cuff. Also the day I received the coat, there were feathers poking through the fabric and I hadn't even worn it yet. The feathers continue to pop through the fabric. Since my previous jacket's zipper had broken (another brand) I was desperate for a coat for the current cold weather immediately so I kept it, believing the temperature rating was as specified. However, the temperature rating is definitely not as warm as described. I have an eight-block walk to work in 25-30 degree weather and I was very cold, even with a light sweater and neck scarf underneath, and another scarf on the outside and earmuffs under the closed hood. Beware if your climate is colder than Washington, DC's climate, which is mild compared to the Midwest.
