Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiggie11 Well Named
This jacket is warm as the name implies. I love the soft sleeve wrist lining that hugs your wrists and keeps the cold air out. The jacket is short, barely covering the hips in my case. And I wish it were a little more snug in the hips, or had a draw cord there, but it's a great jacket for the price. Unlike other down jackets I've had, it does not shed feathers. The pockets are generous and well placed for comfort. The removable hood is warm and great for windy days. Overall, this is a handy wintertime jacket of great quality. I recommend it.

This is a very nice jacket. The jacket is warm but not heavy. The only change I would make would be to make it slightly longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jakk Great Coat!
I love this coat. It fits perfectly (I ordered a petite as I am only 4'11"). I have trouble finding things that fit nicely because I am short and not a skinny minnie! This coat worked excellently. And it does the trick for warmth also. I live in Pennsylvania and this winter we've been in a deep freeze and the coat has kept me really warm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DoctorShop Way too big, crazy fur on hood
Had to send this one back. The body was so wide I could almost have put two of me in it, and it was labeled a petite medium. The hood was a strange shape, and the fur was poorly attached and looked like a "bad hair day." Enough said.

Have worn this jacket a couple of times, the size was good,( large) and had room to wear a sweatshirt under it. Is lightweight and feels good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by J1952 Warm, Lightweight But Needs Another Item
I purchased this jacket because I really liked the longer version. It is very warm, lightweight, easy to pack, and the wind does not normally penetrate it. The one downfall, however, is the inability to secure the jacket at the hip so that it is closer to the body. In colder weather this downfall takes away all of its excellent aspects because the wind can come up through that lower area.

This coat was recommended on a travel website and I plan to take it on a trip to China and Tibet in April. I really like the warmth, but also that it is light weight. I can't wait to take it and really give it a work out on the trip.

Love this coat..a few years ago I bought this coat in white and this winter I bought the black.. Love the way it fits and the warmth it provides. I wear a petite small and it fits me very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by socialworker44 pleasantly surprised
When I ordered this jacket, I was skeptical that it would be ultrawarm and hold up to the freezing cold weather we have been having in NY this winter. Now that I have worn it for a few weeks, I love this coat!!
It is very warm and the pockets are roomy enough to hold plenty of things including bulky gloves. I have gotten it wet during several snow storms and I still stay dry and warm. The hood helps to keep out the elements and provide good defense against the snow and rain.
I highly recommend this jacket if you are having a lot of snow and want to stay warm and dry!!
Thanks LL Bean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichiganDockJumper Pretty warm
I received the full length version of this coat as a gift two years ago and I still love it. It is pretty warm and roomy enough for bulky winter clothing underneath. The lining is smooth and glides easily over those winter sweaters. Would I wear it on an arctic expedition? No. But, layered over sensible clothing for the weather, it is warm enough for anything Northern Michigan can throw at me. This coat excels at blocking the wind. The hood is great, it's a good fit and you can really secure it. Your head and neck will never get cold. The cuffs hidden inside the sleeves keep your arms nice and warm. I love the pockets, very soft and warm, I don't need gloves or mittens if my hands are in my pocket. The pocket opening is just the right size to fit your hand and sleeve inside but not so big that cold air can get in. The zippers, snaps and stitching are all of the highest quality, not a single problem after 2+ years of heavy and rather abusive use. I would recommend this coat to anyone.
