Warmest coat I have ever owned! Absolutely loved how light and form fitting the coat is. I have been complimented several times!

Rated 4 out of 5 by islandsusie3 Good fit and light weight
Over all I am happy with this coat. It is very light weight and comfortable. I got it because I like to walk outside for exercise year round. The longer length is nice for that reason. I think it was rated for -25 degrees, but I would not want to be out in that temperature for very long. The coldest it has been when I have worn it so far is about 20 to 25 degrees with a slight wind and I would have been happier if I had stayed warmer. It does create a far amount of static as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MonaLisa52 Light as a Feather and Warm as Toast
I love my new coat. I needed a good winter coat that was a bit longer that the one I was wearing. Winter coats tend to be heavy and bulky which makes it difficult to move comfortably and uncomfortable when driving. This coat is perfect. It's extremely lightweight and very warm. I've worn it in snow, sleet and cold (single digit & windy) weather. It performs as promised.
The only two things I might improve would be to add an inside cuff on sleeves and collar.
I am pleased to see it is machine washable and hope it comes out looking as good as it does now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lbon Warm , thin and really comfortable
I bought this jacket and it is so warm and great to wear with longer sweaters. The toggles that pull at the waist tightens it up, helps to not have any wind go up underneath and helps shape the waist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tranquiltracy Nice coat, poor quality
I really liked the light weight combined with warmth of this coat, however I found the quality to not match up with what I am used to from LL Bean. I bought it originally in December 2013, immediately noted that the material would not withstand snowshoe hikes through trees, but took my chances anyway because it kept me warm. However, within 8-9 months, the waist toggles stopped functioning. Knowing how good LL Bean customer service is, I ordered another (planning to return original once new one arrived). Within 2-3 weeks, the toggles on the new coat stopped functioning, so now I will be returning both. Needless to say, I am unwilling to take a 3rd shot at this coat, and ordered baxter state parka...seems to be much more durable so far!

Rated 2 out of 5 by grandmaLene Returned item
I wore it once. The down was all over the jacket, and transferred to other coats in my closet and to the clothes I wore. Plus, it felt so thin. I wore it in 30 degree weather, with a sweater and T shirt underneath, and I was just comfortable. -25 F?, I doubt it. I was so disappointed in the quality. For the price, I expected more. I should have listened to the other reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LizCio Great style & fit - but TOO many feathers!
I wore this coat for about 2 months. I loved the way it fit & looked. It was so lightweight but kept me warm. There was just one problem -- tiny down feathers. At first they just sprouted on the outside. Although I looked like I was molting, I hoped it would stop after a bit. Sadly, the opposite was true. The more I wore the coat, the more they sprouted. The last straw was when they started to sprout on the inside so that every time I took it off, I needed to use a lint brush. Today I am sending it back, which is a bummer because I loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by monibelle Feminine, warm, and great fit!
I originally purchased the "winter warmer coat" online because it was on sale. I am sure it would have been warm, but it was boxy and looked terrible on me and was very unflattering #and way too big!#. I returned that in store and found this micropuff down coat, and fell in love with it. I bought the blue and it is such a nice color and very cheerful for cold, dreary winter days. It's light enough to wear in the car on the commute home #just unzip up from the bottom for comfort!# We just had our first snow of the season and it kept me warm for cleaning the car and making it into work. I am not sure it would be great for negative temperatures, but for where I live, it should do the trick. It makes me feel feminine and pretty, and I am very happy with my purchase. I ordered a medium and I'm 5'7", 145 lbs if that helps any of you. I am bustier, and the medium fits perfect. #The only negative review I have is like others have commented, the wrist area is exposed, so the wind/cold gets in. It would have been nicer if that was insulated better, but that's my only complaint.# If you're on the fence with this coat and another, I say get this one! You will be happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 30YearLLBeanFan Terrific Coat!
I looked for some time for just the right casual winter coat and am delighted with this one. It's lightweight with no bulk, yet warm as can be and the nipped-in waist (an optional feature) is chic and slimming. It repels water, so it works well for long walks outdoors on wintry days. I wore it on a frigid day in Manhattan last week and was comfortably toasty when everyone around me was shivering. This one's a winner!
