Rated 5 out of 5 by gooutandplay great jacket!
We have been really happy with this jacket! It is great quality all around. My daughter goes to a nature preschool where they are outside most of the day, and as a result I have to wash this jacket almost every week. We've had this jacket since last year and it always washes up as good as new--no stains or signs of wear at all. It seems that my daughter is plenty warm in it, but we do usually dress in layers in winter, with a sweatshirt, hat, mittens, etc. I like that it's not so heavy that she can still move in it, and it also truly makes it a three season coat. I have also been very impressed with the quality of the zipper. My daughter has recently learned to zip her own coat, and has tried to zip the zipper while it is misaligned quite a few times. However, every time I have gotten the zipper free without much trouble at all and no harm done. Very happy all around!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pburghshopper Daughters LOVE these coats!
I have been buying this style for the past five years. I have three little girls and by now we have one in each size ready to go each winter and only need to buy the oldest one a new coat each year. My youngest is 2...she is wearing the same coat that my oldest daughter wore five winters ago. She is the third to wear it and it is still LIKE NEW. They just last forever.
This coat is warm without being bulky, easy to put on (no weird detachable inner sleeve), and exceptional quality.
PLEASE do not stop making this style, LLBean. My 6 year old put it best, "This is the coat I dreamed of." It doesn't get better than that! :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by RainyDayBC Gorilla arms
My daughter has had this jacket in size 2t and 3t. It has always served us well. Her 3t is just about too small for her, so I decided to get her a size 4, thinking it was marginally bigger than the 4t. HA! The arms are like 4inches too long, but the length of the jacket on her torso fits fine. Terrible fit. Very disappointed. Back it goes...

Rated 2 out of 5 by triwomyn good looking, but cold
While the look of this jacket is nice, it is not warm enough for my children. The body and hood are lined in fleece which is nice, but the arms are not, and therefore my children are always complaining their arms are freezing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mighty37 Girls attached hooded not easily versatile
I got for my daughter because the blue/aqua color is her favorite but the hooded always will be attached and no zipper to remove if not needed. the bottom are too wide and wind will be problem. I had to return and pay for shipping fee , she didnt like it at all, would only used it for winter but not other weather bc hood. too bad had to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VAMomTo2 Good Winter Coat
I didn't love the coloring for a little girl (brown w/ blueish/purple), but my daughter picked it. The coat was reasonable price, warm, and easy to get on/off. My only complaint was that LL Bean didn't have any coordinating hats/mittens for this one. But, the jacket itself is great!

Rated 2 out of 5 by TXMomof2 poor fit
After being very satisfied with this style in the toddler sizes, I was disappointed to find the fit didn't work on the little girl's Small. As other reviewers have mentioned, the sleeves were too long and body too short and wide at the bottom. The competitor's similar style in the same size is about an inch shorter in the sleeves an inch longer in the body. Competitor's also has drawcord to tighten the bottom to adjust fit and keep the wind out. The Bean coat's materials and construction seem a little better, but it's being returned because of the fit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pashops3 Too Short
Cute but way too short to keep cold winds out unless you have snow pants on. Hangs away from the body in the front. Not practical for daily wear. Would like to see longer similar parkas offered for little kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aimster My Favorite LIght Weight Coat
I've bought this coat for my daughter twice before in the toddler versions. She was once praised by her pre-school teacher for how quickely she zipped up her coat. It was actually the great zipper! Well thought out design and durable. We would like more color choices to be made available.
