Women's Winter Fleece Robe, Zip-Front is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1181.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from To Lands End - Bring Back the Quality I have this robe from over 20 years ago and another from around 5 years ago. I noticed the changes in the 2nd but kept it anyway. The width is more narrow, the pockets are MUCH smaller (really, how much did you save there?) the fleece isn't as nice (current reviews indicate it has gotten worse) and the collar no longer zips up. There are enough reviews on here to show there is a market but it could be much bigger if you would consider redoing your current robe and bringing back the original features. If you have to charge more, people will pay it. A robe like the one I purchased 20 years ago is not available anywhere else!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mother-in-law LOVED it I bought this for my husband's Mom for her birthday (she's in her mid-60's), and she really liked it! The arctic blue color is her favorite, she loved that there's no sash and that there's just a zipper (no binding at the waist), it's nice and long for her (she's tall), the fleece is warm and good quality (she's usually quite cold), and the sizing was spot on. She takes a L/XL, and the L in this fit her perfectly (so you probably don't need to size up on this one). All in all, it was very successful. I was nervous to order clothing for her (my first time), but I just knew this robe would be a hit. And I wasn't disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from long awaited navy robe I have just purchased a navy blue fleece robe. This will be my third L.L. Bean fleece robe in the last decade and there is definitely a quality difference in the fleece.The original robe(item number 2980088) from what year I don’t remember is made with a nice thick substantial fleece,the second 0DBC2 was made with the best fleece with a nappy lambs wool appearance. This 2021 fleece feels cheaper,looks cheaper(shiny) Why LLbean did you go with inferior fleece for the same price as previous robes. Bring back the ODBC2 fleece as it is thicker and just more appealing in appearance.I will keep the new robe as I don’t want the fuss of returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect robe for cool weather this robe is perfect for winter, fall and spring. i am somewhat cold natured , and am cold in the evenings. i slip on this soft, warm robe and problem solved! i love the fact that it does not have a belt to keep up with. i usually just leave it zipped a little at the bottom and step into the robe. it is not that i think the zipper will fail after many uses, it is just easier for me. the fit is very good- roomy without being too bulky. the length is also perfect- about to my ankles( a size medium) and i am 5 feet 5 & 1/2 inches tall. i have washed the robe a few times, and it is holding up very well. no shrinkage, and the fabric still looks new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter Fleece Zip-Front Robe Revised Bought the Winter Fleece Zip-Front Robe Revised in Deep Red, size Misses Small, to replace one I bought three years ago. The main difference between the old and the new is that the zipper lies smooth and flat on the new. I had not returned the previous robe because the zipper was buckled even in the photos, and the zipper worked fine. The new robe weighs 1/3 ounce less and measures 1/2 inch less across the shoulders. The Deep Red is still a gorgeous color, the fit still generous, and the robe still snuggly and warm. Center back length is 52 inches, the standard length for womens' full-length robes in my experience. The robe washed well and the zipper still lies smooth and flat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes, But Beware Zipper They do run large, I could have taken a smaller size, but at least I ordered a petite (which I am not); otherwise it would be dragging on floor. It hits right at my ankles and sleeves come to maybe middle of back of my hand. I am 5'5" - 5'6". Unfotunately, the zipper is like most of the zippers that come on LLBean products from Asia -- crummny & very difficult to get going. But having the robe run big I suppose helps avoid having the zipper disintegrate if there is too much pull on it. Otherwise, it looks good in my opinion -- nice streamlined shape despite the largeness. I got the navy and am happy with it. Will maybe order another one next fall in a smaller size and hopefully with an improved zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toasty Just got this robe. I love it already. Very warm. Sleeves a tad long. I must have shorter arms than most people. LOL But it's ok cuz I can pull them over my hands and still put my hands in the pockets. Perfect fit for a large other wise. I'm about 5' 2" and bottom just skims the floor. A full length two-way zipper. Unheard of in other robes. Usually have to "climb" into the others. Did I mention I'm in love. Oh, very fast shipping. Of course, I just live down the road. LOL Thanks LL Bean for another great product. Love the Berry color too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some pros, some cons I've looked all over for a long(ankle length), button down fleece robe with patch pockets and this was the closest one I could find. PROS-It does reach my ankles (I'm 5'3"), it does have patch pockets, the collar was convertible (I could fold it down if I wanted to), nice dark navy color, its warm and soft. CONS-I hate the zipper. I'm an early riser and its usually dark when I get up, so when I put it on I have to bend over (not so easy as I get older) to find the two bottom parts and then struggle to get them aligned. Buttons would be so much much easier!!! Also if it were an A-line style I think it would be easier to walk in and also look a bit more feminine.
