Rated 1 out of 5áby LLBDC Stiff Material - Runs Small
I ordered this jacket a size large to fit roomy for bulky underlayers. It just fit so there was no roomy effect and the material was very stiff so it did not fall well. I returned it to the store with absolutely no problem. I love LLB return policy and awesome customer service...just not that jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5áby FargoChill Good weight and length
Good tayloring. Fits well in the petite size. The length is good over the longer sweaters for fall. Nicely lined and finished and the red is fun.

Rated 3 out of 5áby PWCLover Trench didn't work out
I read the reviews and ordered the trench in the next size up with much trepidation. I normally wear an XS petite and was pleased to find the S petite was roomy enough in the chest and sleeves for me. However I am returning the coat for 2 reasons. I just don't like the color offerings. I really want black and cannot understand why LL Bean would not offer this classic coat in such a basic color. You used to offer the double breasted trench in black. The second issue is the sleeve length. I have long arms and the sleeves are still way too long. I do not want to spend any extra money having the sleeves altered when I'm not thrilled with the color of the coat. Finally, I wish this coat was offered with a zip out lining -- though I was willing to overlook that due to the nice styling.

The coat is a true red and the fit is true to size. It will be a perfect rain coat when needed and a great coat for all other times.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Rates Roomy
Mid-weight trench perfect for fall. After reading reviews, I purchased the XL. However, it was too roomy and the sleeves were actually too long for me -- a first! I tried the Large, and it was perfect.
I would definitely recommend. Good value.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Joyfulness Comfortable, beautiful color
It took a couple of tries, but now I have a great coat. I did have to hem up the sleeves about an inch, but otherwise it fits well. Coat runs small, so I ended up with a LP so I could wear it over a jacket or sweater. Haven't worn it yet but anticipate it will work out well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby EuroTraveler70 Beautiful Coat
I just received this coat and tried it on with a long sleeve t- shirt since many reviews suggested that it fit poorly. NOT SO!!
This M coat fits me, 5' 6" 136 lbs. perfectly. It was loose and comfortable. I then put on a long sleeved, wool, large sweater. Still a good fit. I must report, however, that the size stated is for a woman's frame size and does not make any accommodation for any extra flesh that one might carry in the neck, shoulder, upper arm or in the back. Going up a size, or even two to accommodate a fuller build, I'm afraid, would only distort the look and feel of the coat because it would then no longer be appropriate to the woman's frame.
It is made beautifully, the fabric is lovely and very dressy. The arm length is long, and that has always been a personal problem for me when buying a coat. I am happy I made this purchase, now let's hope it sheds water.

Rated 2 out of 5áby bjbn Ugh. Did not like this coat.
Does not fit right in shoulders/upper arms. Stiff fabric that does not drape well. The blue stripes inside look strange and the buttons seem too big for the coat. Very uncomfortable to wear. Sending this back.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Slendercustomer Stylish coat but hard to fit
This trench coat is very stylish and good quality. It unfortunately did not fit me. I am slender and somewhat small (5'4" 105 lbs.). I tried first the misses XS - it hung off my shoulders, was too big through the bust, the sleeves and bottom length were too long, and it felt tight across my upper back. I then tried the petite S - it was too big through my body, the sleeves were too long, and the upper back still felt too tight when I moved my arms. It is possible that the petite XS would have worked, but by this time I gave up. I am small through my upper body, and don't understand why the coat would feel tight in the back. If you are more average size than me the coat might fit you.
