Rated 5 out of 5áby activeoutdoorsylady comfortable
This jacket is so warm and comfortable. Small fits female 5'6", 140 lbs with room for a hooded sweatshirt or fleece underneath. The red plaid is necessary when walking my dogs on wooded roads in fall. Use the back pouch for hat and gloves. Am loving it enough to get the green also. LL Bean is the best.

Rated 4 out of 5áby FitzInMissouri Nice Jacket, Room for Improvement
Looking for something more packable than the heavy wool parka this looked like a good option. It's a nice jacket, fits well, and seems like it will last.
On initial inspection I almost returned it due to both the hand pockets being sewn closed over 50% of the opening. At first I thought their was velcro or something holding them closed but no, they were actually sewn shut. Something like that really should have been caught before it left the factory. After looking it over, the threads didn't seem to be holding anything important (other than the pocket opening) so I carefully cut the pockets open and removed the thread. Doesn't seem to be any worse for wear now.
Couple suggestions to the LL Bean crew for this jacket:
Put a hanging loop in it! How much could that cost?
Add another button to the wrist cuff. Although there is a button closure there's only one button so it's not adjustable at all.
We'll see how it holds up to the weather but overall it seems like a nice jacket with a little room for improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SFox Great, Versatile Jac-Shirt
Selected the XL green jac-shirt. The jacket is not "scratchy", the wind proof liner is welcomed and not excessively "noisy", and the fit will accommodate layering beneath. I was particularly pleased the piece came with a metal zipper. The predicted plastic zipper was going to be the deal breaker if true.
My only complaint is minor - the sleeve lengths are too long yet will close nicely over gloves.
Great add for fall and winter wear.

Rated 4 out of 5áby RedlegShopper well made coat but sleeves are too long
Outstanding quality and finish but the sleeves are much too long. I did not want to risk alterations given the cuff design and decided to return the coat.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Rpage Love this Jacket
I asked my family for this red checkered jacket as a replacement for a light ski jacket that has seen its day. Right out of the package I loved the feel and nostalgic look (when I was a kid it's all we wore). The cut and feel are great I absolutely love it. The only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is I 've only owned it a week. I'll raise it up as I wear it a while.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MinnesotaRover Wool Jac Shirt Smell
I really like the cut and feel of the lined Jac-Shirt.
But!! I really DON'T LIKE the offensive odor of the wool. Smells like some chemical was imparted to finish the fabric or kill insects at the manufacturing/storage site. Can't seem to air the smell out either. If stored in a hall closet the smell overpowers the person who opens the closet door.
This needs to be fixed ASAP.
