Rated 5 out of 5áby lrose Comfortable, well taylored
I have not had a chance to wear this coat since the weather here is 105 heat index, however the fit is comfortable, well designed, and it hangs well on the body. Great coat to put on over anything when the weather begins to change in the fall.

This is a gorgeous red with contrasting black buttons. It is true to size and a good length. I am 5'3" and l50 lbs and the large is a good fit. The coat is not overly heavy, has a good sized fashionable collar and I like the simplicity of the single row of buttons. I will say that the sleeves are a tad long. The belt is long enough to tie off, even without buttoning. All and all, a good price and I am completely pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dalhia Love my trench coat
I love my new trench coat. It is stylish and yet comfortable. I ordered the red coat in size medium. Some of the other reviews said that this coat runs large. I'm glad I did not order the small. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and this coat fits as a medium should. The sleeves are a regular sleeve (not raglan like someone else said in their review) and fit a little snug and a little long. Other than that the coat fits great and the color is beautiful. It is just the right length and I can still wear a sweater under it for cooler days in spring or autumn. I placed my order on-line on a Sunday evening with regular shipping and I received it by Tuesday. All in all I am very happy with my purchase from L.L. Bean.

Rated 1 out of 5áby gardenjean Not up to L L Bean standards
I should have listened to other reviewers comments that this coat is cut tight through the upper arms and across the back of the coat. I found it very restricting and could never pick out groceries on a shelf nor reach the steering wheel of my auto.
I loved the style and navy color and was looking forward to taking this coat on a summer trip. Not now!
L.L.Bean, , you need to try this coat on various women and if they say it is cut wrong, then take it out of your inventory.
I am 5'4", 150# and ordered the Petite Large. The sleeves were still long on me.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Susieq105 Sleeves too tight
I purchased this raincoat despite my reservations after reading quite a few reviews. It seems that the sleeves are very tight and the rest of the body fits well. I was hoping that I would be an exception, but that was not the case. It is a nicely made coat, but when I tried it on the sleeves pulled when I moved my arms forward. Sadly, I returned it. I would not recommend to a friend for that reason.

Rated 2 out of 5áby BeanJustSaying Want to love it, but I cant
I really do want to love this jacket - the color, style and fabric are all that I am looking for - however, the fit just does not work for me.
The jacket fit perfectly everywhere except the arms (upper arms) and across the top of the back. The fit was so tight in through this area, I could not lift my arms over my head, and as one other reviewer mentioned, I could not reach my arms out far enough to reach the steering wheel while driving.
I had to return mine - ordering up was not an option since the coat fit properly everywhere else and the sleeves were already rather long.
I'm not the thinnest person on earth, but I also know my arms are not that huge that the jacket should fit like this. Something seems wrong with the design of this coat.

I love this coat! The fit is great and I love the barn red color. I have long arms and coat sleeves are normally too short, but these are a perfect length. I have received numerous compliments when wearing this coat.

Bought this for my wife for the chilly Virginia spring mornings and she loves it. It looks great on her too.

Rated 4 out of 5áby 1RedCoat Old Port Trench Coat
The coat is nice, but I ordered a petite and the sleeves were about 1/2 inch too long. I just turned them under and stitched them up by hand. One sleeve was slightly longer than the other, but I hope that no one will notice. Other wise the style is nice and it fits well.
