Rated 1 out of 5 by SummertimeDreamer Disappointing
Ordered this as a gift for my husband, but the lining is much thinner than expected and is not soft; it is closer (in my opinion) to a thin terry-cloth lining with just a hint of fuzz...definitely not a soft, cozy fleece as expected.
In addition, the sleeves aren't lined and the robe is heavy, though would have been willing to keep the robe had the lining in the remainder been of better quality. Unfortunately, I will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cascogal Like a hug from a cuddly rugby team ...
I write this as a woman who snaffles this robe from her husband whenever possible. It is super-soft, a wonderful weight (without feeling too heavy) and warm as toast. My husband loves his robe (when he can get it back from me). Is there a ladies' version? As always, LL Bean quality and value for money as we have come to expect. 10/10!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heinz72 Happiness is a Warm Hug
I'll admit, I'm in my mid-40s and this is the first bathrobe I've actually purchased for myself. All others were gifts, and none of them could ever remotely measure up to this most wonderful Bean Rugby Robe.
Living in the midwest, I roll out of bed on cool or cold spring and autumn weekends, put on my Wicked Good Slippers and my Fleece-Lined Rugby Robe, and grab a hot cup of coffee or tea -- and then go and sit on my patio to watch the ducks in my pond.
This robe is so wonderfully warm. The outer rugby material is very soft; the terry fleece lining is even softer and such a plus for warmth. The fleece-lined hood is great on cool mornings. I'm 6'1" and purchased an XL Long, and it's the perfect fit; comes down almost to my ankles. Great with clothing to keep warm in the house; also great after jumping out of the shower when wet.
Glad I don't have a girlfriend or a wife -- otherwise she might steal this from me! I can't say enough good things about this wonderfully warm bathrobe. It's like a warm hug every time I put it on. Many thanks, LL Bean!

This luxurious, warm, ultra-comfortable robe is perfect for a cold winter's night. Your only problem will be staying awake once you put it on...driving while wearing not recommended!

Bought one of these for each of my family from Santa last year. They love them! Living in the snow belt, these are our saving grace during the winter. Ordering another one this year!

I bought one of these robes for my teenage son for Christmas and he absolutely loves it, but has to hide it from my husband, my teenage daughter, and myself! We all want one. Please bring them back in stock!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alucero24 gift for hubby
I had bought this robe for my husband for Christmas because our house is very cold. He LOVES IT! The hood, pockets and the length is perfect. But what my husband likes the most is the lining on the inside. He wanted to get me one for my birthday in January but they don't come in women's plus sizes. I want them to come back in stock because my brother in law saw how warm it is and wanted one for himself so I am keeping an eye out for when theres more in Size M.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BangorHomeBody Nice, just not quite enough for me
Overall this is a nice and warm robe, it just falls short of my desires.
The material is thin, too thin for the temperatures I live at
The lining is also quite thin, it's nice but just too lightweight for me
The pockets are a little low and have no lining in them at all
The belt loops are thin and fragile
I would do the following differently:
Thicker sweatshirt material overall, heavier weight.
Thicker liner material with maybe a bit higher pile.
Redesign the pockets so they can be used with the robe shut,
much like what you would find on a hooded sweatshirt.
Thicker and stronger belt loops and belt.
The only reason I will still wear this, with another sweatshirt over it, is because it blocks the air from getting up my back. I wish that some company somewhere would make one of these in a thickness and quality like the Camber company offers, but nothing that I can see. Good try Bean, great for the normal folk that heat their house to the 70's in the winter, but not enough for folk like myself that can't afford that.

In this "House Coat" you truly don't even need a blanket or extra layers. Its warm, cozy, soft, and easy to wash and care for. I don't fear cold mornings anymore in my frigid Apartment.
