Rated 5 out of 5 by Blecovich High quality, great for outdoor work.
I purchased this coat several years ago while in marching band. I needed something durable enough to stand up to use with a sousaphone, but warm enough for a Northern Indiana, windy winter. Layered with a hoodie, this worked perfectly. Five years of marching band, wood-carrying, crumpling, and generally heavy use later, it's still my go-to work coat AND it still looks good.
Definitely recommended. : )

Rated 5 out of 5 by SurBX Replacement
This jacket was a replacement for an much, much older model. The first thing I noticed when I first wore it was it was lighter but warmer than the older one which tells me they have improved the technology of the jacket. Second and very important it not only keeps you warm but I wore this during a job near a beach resort and it had rained all day alternating between drizzle second coming and the jacket kept me dry. Enough said about LL Bean. They have always come through for me and the family. Still have winter coats going back 25 years.

This jacket is replacing the Warm-Up jacket my husband has worn for many years. It has been his favorite because of the fit and style. It is warm, comfortable and easy to take care of. He wears it from the fall through spring in the ever-changing Michigan weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BinkyBoy Love These Jackets!
I live in Vermont, land of multiple seasons ? sometimes within a week!
I have owned 6 warm-up jackets over the last 10 years and I can't say enough good things about them. (I rotate my wearing).
As Bean mentions, they are great from chilly spring days to cold winter (helps to have some layering).
They are sturdy, the fit is right on and they are easily washable. Let it air dry, don't put it in the dryer or you might go down a partial size.
My favorite from years ago was a bright red jacket. It finally gave up when the front zipper failed (most likely from the wearer's increase in girth). Sadly, the red is not available anymore so I planned on ordering a different one. When I spoke with a Bean expert, I was told to pick what I wanted, mail back the old jacket and a new one showed up a few days later ? NO COST.
Reality check here ? we all know that over the years, many companies source products from overseas ? a current fact of life. Regardless of this, I have not had a non-USA made LLBean item fail. Believe me or ask my wife, I own enough Beanware to outfit several families.
I just bought the Crisp Lapis (bright blue with red/burgandy fleece lining).
Have loved LL since the late fifties/early sixties when I was a summer camp kid in Maine, and will continue to love the products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rizzo62 Best jacket ever
This is my second and the first one is still in fine shape, at least fifteen years old. Amazingly, its warm enough for winter use, cool enough for fall and early spring. Machine washable, always looks and feels great, really could not ask for more. I bought the second jacket to have a different color, but will continue using the first periodically. I'm curious how long it will last; I've never so much as snagged a zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILike2Fish Perfect Coat
I wore this jacket all winter without having to break out my heavy, bulky winter coat. For being so lightweight, it is surprisingly warm. Very stylish and comfortable. Just an all around great jacket. I just wish that L. L. Bean had an identical jacket, only un-lined, that I could wear on cool summer nights or early fall. Hint, Hint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RetiredShipper Warm up jacket in burgundy, XL
The replacement for my Warm up jacket came yesterday. I really needed one in XL. The fit is perfect and I like the burgundy color. I bought one of these in blue years ago and wore it for ages, so I knew it was an excellent garment. This is a three season jacket that I will have for a long time. I f you want a no-nonsense jacket that gets the job done, this is it. Rated with 5 stars !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama8 great jacket
Although this is a Warm-Up Jacket, it looks very nice as a casual
jacket too. My husband is real pleased with it's style, quality,
and fit. It is a very comfortable jacket as well and great for cooler
temperatures in the 40 and 50 degrees range. Thank you L.L Bean
