Rated 5 out of 5 by tloveanimals Just the right warmth
Wanted something between a windbreaker and heavy jacket. This is a wonderful warm well made jacket where I don't have to wear 4 layers to stay warm. We have been to Arizona and New Mexico in February and would have loved to have this jacket at that time.

Fast Service, including exchange. In Canada, shipping for exchange is not free even LL Bean sent you a defective jacket. I've returned a warm up jacket with a crease from stitching at the collar.I got it back around two week, so do the shipping charge too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by earthdoctor What a great color !!!!
Just received the Alpine Gold warm up jacket. The color is more outstanding in real life. What a deal.
These warm up jackets are a best bang for the buck. I have suggested to LLBean that warm up vests with identical fabric choices would be an awesome addition to the catalog. I'm ready to purchase such an item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KitColorado Size Only
I just received my jacket. So this review will be about size only.
I?m 6 foot tall, and weight 235 lbs (about which 35 is beer belly).
After reading other reviews that state this jacket tends to run on the small side. I ordered the XX-Large size instead of my usual X-Large. I?m glad I did. The jacket fits great across my chest, and shoulder area. With good zip over the belly (not Coors).
Only one very small minus. The sleeves are .75 or 1 inch too long. But the knitted cuffs keep the sleeves bottoms just at lower wrist level, so no big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by earthdoctor Quite versatile ?.
Love these jackets. Often during winter these jackets work better than sweaters for long term warmth inside the house with only a t- shirt weight turtle neck and such.
Therefore I now own a few ?like 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TitusPullo7 Fleece lined warm up jacket
I purchased this jacket once before in a smaller size and found the Medium to be too snug. Usually, a Med. has been my standard size but not in this case. I then purchased the Large size and it fits just fine with ample room around chest and waist. I am 5.8" and around 170#,and the Larrge is just right.
I bought this in the late spring, so will wait for fall to really put it to use. However, fit and quality of construction are good and the fleece lining should be just about right for Pac. NW fall and winter weather.
I got this on a 10% discount promo so the price was almost an offer I couldn't refuse.

Rated 4 out of 5 A warm, dry jacket
This is my second LL Bean Warm-Up Jacket. I use it for cold, rainy or snowy weather. My size large is a relaxed fit, with room for a fleece or sweater underneath. The quality is exemplary, with no manufacturing flaws noted. My only complaint is that the stomach region is huge--the fit should be slightly more tailored below the chest. For me, the jacket provides good-looking weatherproof cover for temperatures from around freezing up to the low 50-degree range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by travellllller Wife vs Husband review
I love it. I think it is very comfortable. It is true to size. It is warm and great at keeping out the cold air and wind. If anything ever happens to it I will buy it again without hesitation.
Wife- I am not a fan of how it looks on him. It is a very basic design for a coat and not what I would call "fashionable." (but he could care less- he is all about function)
It makes rustling sounds when he moves his arms because the arm material is rubbing against the body of the coat. It drives me crazy when he is near me and making lots of movement because of the rustling sound.
The coat washes up really well and looks exactly the same as it did the day it arrived. It does seem to be a very quality made coat.
I am happy that he found a coat that he likes and he finds very warm and functional- but I could do without the rustling noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovinblue Just as advertised. Great quality.
The jacket arrived just when scheduled. The color is beautiful, the quality of material and workmanship is wonderful. The jacket is light
weight, but, still warm. Good buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 well made but noisy shell
This jacket had a quality zipper and a nice lining. I returned it for two reasons. I am tall and thin. The xlarge was too large and the large had too short of arms for me.
The other reason is the shell is a stiff nylon that makes a lot of noise when you move your arms. I would find that annoying. So, this jacket was not a good choice for me.
