Rated 5 out of 5 by TZBibi So glad I bought this jacket!
I ordered this jacket before a Spring trip to the Isle of Skye in Scotland, where we planned to do a lot of walking and hiking. The weather there is variable, and often quite wet, so I wanted something that was warm and water resistant. This jacket was PERFECT! We walked in chilly rain and blustery wind, and it kept me warm and dry. I wore it on nicer days, too, unzipped and with the hood down, and it wasn't too heavy. I also appreciated the many pockets--essential for travel. The interior pocket of the lining is just the right size for a boarding pass.

It's a nice jacket overall, but lately NH has been seeing very cold temps and this jacket just does not cut it. You still need to wear layers, long under ware. Good thing LL Bean offers many other choices for winter coats though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mwatermelon Almost perfect jacket
I like the changes that were made since I bought my first jacket many years ago. I really like the lining in the sleeves that make the jacket much easier to put on when the two jackets are zipped together. I also like the snaps instead of the Velcro on the storm flap. What would make this jacket absolutely perfect would be a double zipper that zips up from the bottom. Being a pear shape, I often have trouble when sitting in a coat or jacket that doesn't zip up from the bottom. The coat is just too tight across the hips when sitting. I bought this jacket a size larger than my last one for this reason which makes it a little too large overall.

I do not have an fit issue with this jacket, I found it to be very comfy. The only thing I don't like is the metal zipper pull on the fleece shell. It is extremely cold on your neck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SoChick Bad fit
I have an 11 year old 3-in-1 Bean parka that is great but is too small now. I ordered this in a 2x, based on the fit comments (I am an 18w) and in spite of the bad reviews. The other reviews were right. The fit of this jacket is just bad. The shoulders were way too snug -- it made lifting my arms very uncomfortable. The fit across the middle was very roomy, and the whole jacket just looked bulky. The material was good quality, but the fit was awful. It had to go back, and I've found one by a different brand that fit much better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NJKate Awful Fit!!
The jacket seems like it would be just the thing for running errands out and about, and I love that the fleece is removable from the shell. I say "seems" though, because I've never actually been able to wear it anywhere. I'm normally a size 1X-2X. I had gotten the 2X jacket, which fit great everywhere but the sleeves--WAY too tight, and as a result, too tight across the back. I exchanged that size for a 3X, and somehow, even though the sleeves are longer (and at this point, the body was far too large), the sleeves themselves were still much too tight, and too tight across the back. I got another LL Bean coat for the holidays in 2X, and it's comfortable to the point of being almost too large, so I don't know what the designers were thinking when they brewed this jacket up. Whatever it was, this is going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by windsofdestiny Not warm enough
I returned this item after I received it. It said that it was good for 15 degrees but it is not. It is too lightweight. The outer shell is like a windbreaker and the inner shell is just a fleece jacket. Won't keep you warm for 15 degrees.

Bottom of jacket does not have ties to adjust fit. Bottom stuck out due to stiffness of waterproof fabric. Don't know who this would fit.
