Rated 5 out of 5 by springsprangsprung Toasty, toasty, toasty!
Fits like a glove. Keeps me plenty warm -- really needed this winter! The zipper had me concerned for a moment, but figured that out quickly. The hood is marvelous, fitting snugly around head & neck. Very impressive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by xilinxchic Well-built but cold
I bought this jacket specifically for a trip to Winnipeg, CAN where the temp was -10 to 0F during my visit. This jacket did not keep me warm enough (especially with wind), even with multiple layers under. It is better suited as 10-30F range.
It is nicely constructed and ranges from casual to business casual depending on your outfit. The material hangs softly and creates a flattering silhouette compared to other 'warmest' styles. Overall a nice coat, but it just missed the warmth ratings that I counted on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HMF47 Good for the Polar Vortex!
I ordered this coat just in time for the frigid weather that descended on us January 6 with wind chills of minus 20-30. It performed very well, and I especially appreciate the well-designed hood: it stays on, the fleece lining retains the heat, and it's not too small or too tight. Also, the coat styling is fitted enough in the upper torso so that even though there isn't a well-defined waist, it looks okay. (I am 5'1, 108 lbs, and ordered a petite XS.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kang Comfortable, warm, and good looking!
This has become my favorite winter coat! I purchased the coat in the brown color, petite size large. The quilting is very pretty, the lined hood is so comfortable, the fit is great, and the coat is very warm. Love, love, love it!

Amazingly fast delivery and right before Christmas.! We've had zero degree weather lately which is unusual for Tennessee but I have stayed warm in the coat. The inside arm cuffs felt short but I solved that problem by taking them out. The white strip on the zipper looks odd on my walnut colored coat but otherwise I am very satisfied with my purchase.

It is a very nice coat and would be very warm but it was not the type of coat I am in need of. Casual coat and need is for a more dress coat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by keeponkeepinon On the right track...but NOT teens/ zero warm!
Attractive, relatively light-weight and slimming, love the hood, zipper works smoothly, snaps a great addition...but definitely NOT warm all over in cold (teens, zero, sub-zero temps). Just came in from walking BeagleBoy in 10 degree temp, with a zero windchill.
Under the Microsuede Down (?) (not enough "down"!) Coat I wore base layers of a Bean's long sleeve microfleece and under that Bean's turtle-neck silk underwear. Not enough to keep the cold out -- especially on my back (from waist to shoulders), shoulders, and upper arms.
Beanie: More down, please!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MissRiverRedtail great fit and looks
I really dislike the white interfacing (same as used in inside pockets). I'll try dying that with dark brown. I am disappointed in the length as it is advertised as calf length but it hits just above my knee. I am 5'3" 140 lbs and I ordered a petite large. I always wear heavy sweaters or blazers beneath any coat. The length has nothing to do with the petite size as I am short legged and short armed. I do love it though-it is comfortable, warm and sharp looking. Under fluorescent lights it looks very minky in color but in daylight has a bit of chestnut hue so can be worn with black, brown, tan or rust boots. I just really wish it was longer!!!

I received this coat for Christmas. I love it and got it just in time for the arctic weather we're having. I hope it washes well, because it is white! I've had a bit of trouble with the zipper, but I expect I'll get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cook101 Great fit with right size
I bought this coat in size Medium, color Walnut after reading some reviews saying it ran big. It fit well but just a little snug under light shirt but was tight under a heavier shirt. After wearing it once I decided it was just to tight and returned it for a size Large. They called and said walnut was sold out (so Disappointed)and would I like dark brown. 4 Days later I received the dark brown (like the color so much better than walnut) in Large and it fits, and looks so wonderful. I'm a very happy (and warm) customer with my new coat!!!!!! Thanks LL Bean for the ease of a return.
