When did L.L. Bean start to suck, anyhow?
I was taking off my winter coat just now, since I got the stove and the heater going for my office, and the zipper jammed again. That's the reason I returned the last coat I got from them. Same deal with my sleeping bag -- and there's nothing more frustrating than trying to get into a sleeping bag in a 2AM chill and having the goddamned zipper jam.
Does anybody know when L.L. Bean started to suck, and why?
The first L.L Bean winter coat I had was a voluminous navy job with a big hood that I used for a blanket when the heat went in my apartment in Philly, and I must have had it for at least five years. When the sleeves finally wore out at the cuffs, the zipper still worked fine. I loved that coat. What the hell happened?
