Rated 3 out of 5 by woolcoatfan Stiff Collar
This is a high quality jacket. I love the fact that it is 100% wool-- that is difficult to find nowadays. I also love the warmth of the insulation. The issue for me is the stiff collar. It is unyielding, almost like a block of wood, and places significant pressure against the back of my neck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Edeltraud Quality material, sharp design but sleeve problem
This is a really well made and stylish peacoat. It fit well except for the sleeves which were too long about three inches too long for me. Took it to our regular tailor to have them adjusted, but she said she would need to remove the sleeve straps to do it , was sure it would leave holes in the fabric that could be noticed and refused to try it. Sadly, I had to return it.
If your considering this coat you may want to check on sleeve size with LL Bean before ordering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tuscarora Beautifully made---sadly too large
Bought this for my daughter. Loved the classic look and the lovely loden green color. High quality fabric and construction. However, even the size 4 petite was way too big in every way---the sleeves especially were extremely long, it really didn't seem like a "petite" at all. Sadly, we had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Renogal Well made and classy
I bought this coat to replace my old pea coat that finally wore out. It is very well made. Best of all it is not a heavy coat--weight wise. Some winter coats weigh so much they are uncomfortable to wear. Not this one. But it is nice and warm. I found it to run true to size. I am short so I bought petite. The sleeve could have been a quarter inch shorter for me, but it will keep my wrists warm.
I would recommend this coat. I bought it in navy blue, because that is peacoat color to me. It is a true navy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ninna Not happy at all.
I bought this item overseas and am not happy with the final result. I ordered Raspberry, because on the page and catalog it looks red, however, when I received it, it looks extremely pink. Also, I bought the smallest size and it is huge. Would not recommend, very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quijano34 True size
I read some of the reviews about ordering one size up, I did actually order size 6P my normal size and I'm glad I did because it's just fit right and a room for layering. By the way I love the navy color, very stylish, you can wear it with skirts and jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheBookseller Wonderful Coat
I haven't ordered from L.L. Bean since college (20 years ago), so I relied on the sizing guidelines provided. Mistake.
The coat itself is wonderful, and I'm glad I bought it, but I went through 3 sizes before I had the right fit.
I'm 5'4", 125lbs, with a 37 chest measurement, and the regular coat in 6 is perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldruralshopper The Perfect Coat
I love this coat. The color, loden, is beautiful and it's so soft. I wanted another duffel coat like the one I bought here years ago. The current version doesn't work for me but it's a still a gorgeous coat. I bought my normal size rather than sizing up and it fits perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doggerfolk Beautiful Coat!
I read a number of reviews before purchasing this coat. As recommended, I bought a size larger than normal and it fits perfectly. I'm 5'10" 150# and it is often hard for me to find anything with long enough sleeves. This coat has wonderfully long sleeves and is slightly large so that bulky items can be worn underneath. I can't wait to wear this coat! I live in Oklahoma where the winters are not terribly cold until you add the wind which makes the cold very biting. I highly recommend this coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovelyLibra Yes!
Ordered this on a Tuesday and received it that Thursday. How's that for quick service?!
I am very pleased with this purchase. I was wowed by how beautiful this coat is in person. The wool is extremely soft. I chose the navy blue for a classic look.
I am 5'6",130 lbs and the size 4 fits to a T. I can wear with a thin or thick layer underneath.
One of the pockets was sewn shut upon arrival. I was nervous while taking the stitching out as I was afraid I may damage the coat.
