Rated 3 out of 5 Why change the sizing?
I have loved this jacket. My latest one replaced one bought several years ago. But the new one in the same size as the old is much bigger. Why? This is the second item purchased in the last couple months where the medium had gotten bigger than ones I already had. Please don't do this, Bean. A couple medium oxfords purchases a few months ago were the "right" medium. I have been buying online for years and I really don't want to want to play a guessing game on sizes. I hope this isn't the trend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cyberoutlaw Warm but Sweaty
I love the style and the look of this jacket, and it's warm enough for a blustery 40 degree day, but it's not breathable, therefore I come home soaked with sweat every time I wear it. If you're the kind of person who doesn't perspire a lot this jacket will do you fine, otherwise go for something with a breathable fabric.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Walt58 Alpine Gold is Orange
The alpine gold is really school bus orange. I saw many say that in the reviews so called customer service and ask about it. They didn't see anything in their notes so I ordered because I loved the color on the website. It arrived and was definitely orange. I returned. The website color should be corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CityGarden A new old favorite
My minimalist husband has been wearing black Bean warm-up jackets for so long...well, let's just say that when the old one after years of wear gets a little too beat up and is best used for chores, he gets a replacement for regular wear. Which he wears for nearly all occasions throughout fall, winter and early spring. For years.
The newest one is just as satisfactory and dependable as ever. It's nice that Bean has tall sizes, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PittsburghPAGuy The perfect jacket
Literally the perfect medium jacket. I don't say that lightly. The collar covers your neck and throat, which many jackets leave exposed. The lining is so soft and warm, like a cocoon. Excellent pockets to keep your hands warm. Sleeves and waist create a tight ( but not restrictive) seal, keeping the wind out. In any weather above about 40 degrees, this is always my first choice.

Bring this back in Womens sizes, please!!. I purchased one many years ago and accidentally spilled something on it that burned a hole in it. I still wear it for projects around the house. I would love to be able to buy one again.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by WSM73 Just Right
Ordered the filed jacket and realized it wasn't what I wanted. As always, the staff at LLBean helped me return the previous jacket (see other review) and helped me find this one. I ordered the XLarge - big and tall, and it fits like a glove. This is an excellent, lightweight jacket with plenty of room to move. This is exactly what I was wanting for the milder days and nights of Tennessee's Fall and Winter. A+++ for quality and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by puppiefaces Exceeded our expectations.
My husband's jacket arrived today. We were not sure what to expect.. Surprise, it exceeded our expectations in every category! The burgundy color is rich and deep; the materials are substantial; the cuffs are very comfortable - not the stiff kind with velcro on them - and the fit is just perfect with room for movement. It is a handsome jacket! We are both 100% satisfied with this purchase.
