This robe provides warmth without being bulky or heavy. It is incredibly soft inside and out. Washes up beautifully. It's nice an roomy for the larger ladies like myself. It hits me just below knee length. Handy large pockets are easy to access, not like the seam pockets that so many robes have. I am a smoker and had a hot ash fall on the robe, and after washing you can't even tell, so it wins points for fire retardancy also. Excellent value!
