Rated 3 out of 5 by Jinxymom Just didn't work for me
I was so disappointed that this coat didn't fit well. The pink was gorgeous. I am 5'4 and normally wear a 14-16. The petite xl was so short. It looked like it was wearing a tent shaped puffy coat. It wasn't flattering in the least. The hood was huge. I did notice that the sleeves had a nice lining to keep the wind from blowing up them.

Wonderful coat. Very warm, very pretty, very comfy. Love the pockets and the way the hood fastens for blocking out the wind.
I highly recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stitcher888 Too boxy
I wanted to like this coat. The down makes it nice and warm and I love the sleeves; they are just the right length and fullness and the inside fleece wrist cuff is super soft. But the fit of the bodice, as some other reviewers have shared, is too large and too boxy, and without any cinch at the waist or hem, cold air will pump up underneath with movement. Also I didn't care for the faux fur (my husband called it road kill); I tried to fluff it up to look like the pictures on the website to no avail. If you zip the fur off, then the other half of the zipper remains along the outside edge of the hood, which was a look I didn't care for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BakingMom Practical and fashionable.
My 20 year old daughter selected this coat. Knowing sleeve length is a problem she wanted a medium (she is a size sm/med); I ordered a small and a medium. It is a good thing I did order both, as the small was a perfect fit. The inside cuffs are perfect and this is perhaps the only coat where the hood will actually stay in place and protect you from the blustery wind. Being skinny, my daughter looks fabulous in the coat. As far as me (I wear a med.), it wasn't as attractive.

This jacket seriously needs a drawstring waist. It would improve it 100%.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PICKINS LATE FALL ONLY
I wore this jacket in winter and froze-even with an under layer. It's a
late fall jacket only. It's attractive but definitely not a winter jacket. I could not possibly wear this on a bitter cold day. I can't imagine what these people that say it is untra warm are talking about. I fluffed it up in the dryer and everything else and still froze on a bitter cold day-layer and all. Sorry but I do not recommend this jacket-- and I love LL Bean jackets. Their parkas reign supreme --but not his jacket. It's failure for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keenan7 Best Coat Ever!!!
I bought this coat last year in raspberry and it is the BEST coat I have ever had. Love the faux fur trim. It is comfortable and a great fit. I even ordered it in the vest. Not a lot of heat at work so I bring my vest along and couldn't be warmer. Please don't ever take this coat off the market. Waiting for it to come out in a medium to darkish blue. I will never part with this coat. Thanks LL BEAN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WorldTravelMom Excellent workhorse jacket: Buy in dark color
I bought this jacket last year, and it was warm enough to withstand the cold, damp German winter. I do suggest a dark color, however, because the light blue I bought last year eventually became permanently stained around the cuff of the sleeves. I'm buying another of these this year for winter in Korea, but in black. It definitely fits large, so size down and you'll still have plenty of room for a bulky sweater. It is a bit boxy, but really does the trick for keeping you warm! Highly recommend!!

Bought this for my daughter as a spare and it now has become her one and only jacket. Love the quality, size, color and the fit. Will buy another in a different color for myself. GREAT JACKET.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mmolly just right for cold winter
I bought a large and could have gotten a medium and still worn a sweater under it. It's that boxy. If you are looking for a fitted coat, this is not it. However, if you want a coat that is warm, comfortable and can be worn with any sweater underneath, then you've hit the jackpot. I love it to throw on when it I have to run out and do something without thinking of what coat i'm going to wear.
