Women's Long Sleeve Stripe Hooded Zip Terry Robe
Not perfect but love it anyway
As previous reviewers noted, the sleeves are a little long and it's not a heavy-weight material. But I still love it. I just cuff the sleeves a few times. And the fabric weight, like a heavy t-shirt NOT a sweatshirt, will be good in winter and summer. The length is perfect and the striped pattern doesn't show through when you're not wearing a bra.

Love it, but wish zipper extended further toward hem and sleeves were narrower at wrist
I do love this lightweight knit robe - not too heavy to avoid being too warm to wear, raglan sleeves for best fit, and a great not-too-girly blue and white stripe pattern. I've wanted to try a zippered robe as I'm tired of how my traditional robes always loosen up and shift around. I've now been wearing this new robe most every day since it arrived three weeks ago.
I'm 5' 1", 165 lbs, and ordered an XL petite. Even as short as I am, I wish the zipper extended further toward the hem of the robe. I wear the robe on its own, but with the zipper ending quite a ways above my knees (halfway up my thighs), I show a lot more skin than I want and get quite a draft.
After its first wash it shrunk more than I expected but it worked out as the sleeves were initially too long anyway. Width-wise, though, the sleeves are still too wide for my taste so I have them rolled up most of the time to avoid funneling water up my arms when I wash my hands or dragging them through my food when fixing breakfast. However, with the sleeves rolled up the funky knit on the inside of the fabric is exposed for snags. The snags so far have not affected the way the fabric looks on the outside, but I wonder if they couldn't have used a knit that didn't have such an open weave on the inside, guaranteed to catch on any sharp edge. I hate snags.
Despite drawbacks, this robe is the closest I've found to what I need so I won't be returning it.

Should have listened to others…..
I decided to order this robe even though it got low marks from others. I needed a robe for a trip to Southern CA and wanted something that was lightweight and below the knee. The material was not the issue. My problem with it was the zipper broke within the first week of wearing. Returning it is not an option because I had already thrown out all the paperwork.

This robe is comfy and not to warm, just right.
This robe fits great, I did shorten the sleeves because I like the length just above my elbow. Otherwise, It is comfy. I like it also because it is not fleece because fleece is just too warm for me. I bought another one after I received the first one.,

The robe is very comfortable and easy to wear.
The robe is very comfortable and looks more like a sweatshirt, than a robe. I can run outside to take out the trash without embarrassment. I would recommend this robe based on my experience.

Finally . . . the Perfect Robe
It is so difficult to find what I consider 'the perfect robe'... this one is it ... I am so glad I ordered this robe.
Great quality fabric & fit and the real bonus "the stripes are matched correctly on every seam" ... these days you don't find this kind of quality. Thank you Lands End.

Cozy with great zip front
I think perhaps LE should not have compared this to a past item since I guess it is not exactly the same. But I really like what it is - made of French terry that is cozy and not bulky, and with a nice secure zipper. It will be great for both home and travel.

Bring back the old robes...
I had an LE robe that I loved! Had it for 10 years. When it finally gave out and I needed to replace it, LE had removed it from their catalog :( I've ordered several different robes from LE trying to find one that is comparable, and I've sent them all back. Finally this year I see this robe in the catalog. It's close - by not quite as good as my original. I wish it reached all the way to the ground. I ordered a size bigger hoping that it would, but I still have about 12 inches of bare leg, and my ankles get cold! The sleeves are too wide. It's hard to cook or do dishes. When you try to roll them up, they're too big to stay there. I wasn't sure I would like the lighter-weight material, but as I'm getting older, it's working for me. :) I just SO hope they read these reviews and bring back the robe they used to sell. I've seen several reviews asking for this. Maybe by the time my current one wears out????
