Rated 4 out of 5 by onereviewer Good Robe but Fix the Pockets!
I have been looking for a sweatshirt robe for years to replace a worn out one. In late summer/early fall of 2014 I saw this in the store and snapped it up. At first I was very happy with it - love the weight and feel of it, including the stretchy nature of the fabric. Soon though I began noticing that the pockets made big lumps on both sides when I was wearing the robe - very unattractive. I finally sewed them down to the body of the robe. LLBean, this problem could easily be solved by replacing the onseam pockets with patch pockets like most of your other robes. I got the light blue color, but I am thrilled to see that you now offer grey, which was the color I wanted when I bought mine but it was not available. I will however refrain from purchasing the grey until the pocket issue has been fixed. The robe also tends to run just a bit small. I am 5'4" and 114 lbs.and got the XS. Next time I will size up to the S.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carolsreviews Very good but not perfect
I love this robe; it fits perfectly and is in a lovely color. The only drawback is that it is not 100% cotton, so it is not as absorbent as I would like for wearing after a bath or shower. I live in a dry area, where this is not a major problem. For someone in another part of the country, it may be.

Rated 2 out of 5 by countryjoy Not what I expected it to be.
I had high hopes for this bathrobe after reading all of the reviews but I found it to be a disappointment. I am 5'0 and 135 lbs. I ordered the medium as I wanted it to be rather loose and roomy for comfort but the bottom never closed due to the way it was made.The fabric was way too stretchy, the belt did not even want to stay tied. I loved the color (grey heather) and the fabric was soft just not for me, very thin and not warm at all. I returned and ordered the Hearthside lined robe instead. Now that is a nice robe!

I have been looking for a hooded, terry bath robe for several years now. I was happy to find one at llb but was disappointed to find that it only came in one length: approximately to the knees. Being 5?8?, I would love it if you offered ankle length also so we could make a choice. Maybe some time down the road?

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnimalPoet A wonderful, wonderful robe!
This is what a robe should be! Terrific drape to the fabric, great flow and coverage, roomy and comfy, divine and cozy fabric, belt stays tied. I had to roll up the sleeves a couple of inches: they fell nicely and stayed put. I felt as if I looked good in this robe, as well as feeling wonderfully comfortable. I am crazy about the fabric! Being 5'3" and weighing about 100 lbs, petite xxs would have been perfect for me, but I cannot carp about the way xs reg looks! I notice the some xxs items are appearing: if next season sees this robe in xxs, I will buy several colors: maybe I will not have to roll the sleeves! But, still, I do love this robe, and I highly recommend it! It just could be my fave of all the robes I've ever had!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommyof2inNJ Best Robe I have ever owned
This robe is perfect. Not too heavy and not too light. I wear it over my PJ's in the evening and then grab it first thing in the morning. It is so warm and cozy! I love it! I am 5ft 5in 145 lbs and I ordered a Large to have extra room! It is fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AyKayEs Love it!
This is a great robe--incredibly warm and soft. I am sure I'll get a lot of wear out of it this winter. I usually prefer long robes, but since I usually sleep in pants, not nightgowns, in the winter, I figured it would be okay. If this came in a long version, I would buy another. If it came in black, I would buy two more (one for me and one for my mother).

Rated 5 out of 5 by BradentonFlorida The OMG Robe -
This has got to be the softest sweatshirt like robe that was ever made. Cuddly and really beautiful to look at. Not too heavy, long enough - to mid calf, plenty of room and yes Baby Bear - it's just right. Every closet should have one. I life in Florida and we have nights that are very cool. This is just perfect! Thanks, LL Bean !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mamer The most perfect robe in the history of robes
This robe is absolutely perfect- perfect length, perfect style, perfect material. It is so soft and cozy it would make Goldilocks grin- not too hot, not too cold, just right. With the addition of a hood and pockets, I may never go to work again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wookie Exactly What Wanted
The fabric is very soft and comfortable. The sleeves are a little long but the fabric has sufficient body to stay in place when folded back. It is ideal for transitional season wear as well as winter. I am extremely satisfied.
