Rated 5 out of 5 by Preservationist Perfect for Warm Climates or Summer Months
This robe is excellent for warm climates or summer months - or both. The fabric is soft and of a medium weight cotton. I wash it just like everything else - usually warm water and medium heat dryer - so I got a size larger. It's a little big, but I prefer the looseness.
It has worked wonderfully with no zipper malfunctions. I anticipate years of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VikingPrincess Have 10 of these sturdy robes & just bought 2 more
My 88-year-old Mother resides with her aides with my family and me. She lives in these robes year-round. The full-opening zipper makes changing my Mother much easier than a pullover or button-front gown or dress. Also we wash and sometimes bleach 2-3 of these robes every day, and they have held up exceptionally well over the 4+ years we have been relying on them. I was surprised to read some reviewers' criticisms--none of our zippers have failed, the satin zipper trim has held up perfectly, and we like the length of both the sleeves and the hem. We have the robe in light pink, lilac pink, sea foam, tidal blue, and medium dark blue, all fine colors from our point of view. The fabric is soft and strong. We recommend these robes for others who are considering how to dress an elderly or infirm woman, in addition to their traditional use by women of all sizes and ages.

I like natural fabrics and this Supima cotton is so silky and comfortable! The robe washes well and is lightweight and rolls up for travel. Perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MountainGram Poor quality
I agree with some other reviewers about the zipper buckling after washing and also, the facing at the bottom of the robe does not lie flat. Like many other products LL Bean is selling these days, this robe also has declined in quality. I have one of the old tie-front Supima cotton robes and the fabric is A LOT thicker than the current version and continues to stand the test of time. The same is true of the Supima cotton nightgowns....the earlier versions are much higher quality. I know the purpose is for the company to save money; but offering lower quality items is not the answer. LL Bean used to be the place to find great clothing that would last.....sadly, that is no longer the case.

The material is too thin for a cold winter. Also a collar would be nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jopie Zipper fell off in dryer after less than 10 washes
Very disappointed. I loved the robe and the feel of it, but it is useless without the zipper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by queenmom1 Love this robe!
I love this robe. This supima cotton robe is great the throw over the supima cotton gown. It is not fancy but it feels great. It is not a warm robe but I live in the south and most mornings it is just what I need. I really need another?.I live in this one!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LinBin I did love this robe but...
The robe was just what I wanted and had been looking for for several years. Lightweight and long sleeved, not to found elsewhere. Easy to care for and pockets actually held things. Love affair going good for 9 months. Then WHAM! Zipper falls apart. The metal connector is completely off and there is no way to put it back together. My size is sold out so I can't even ask for an exchange. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luckygirl21 Supima Cotton Zip Robe
I was searching for a light weight robe to wear during the warmer months. This is a perfect weight and I love the pockets. I purchased the robe in blue, and it is a beautiful shade.
The reason I did not give it 5 stars, is because I wish it were about 2 inches longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crossstitcher Perfect for summer wear
This is great for exactly what I wanted--a summer cover up that was not too heavy but not shear either. Lengths are great and overall a terrific buy (especially when on sale).
