Rated 5 out of 5 by acoloradomom Warm, great fit
I have never had a down jacket and don't know how I would have survived this winter without this coat. It is warm, comfortable and stylish. My only complaint is that the hood is too big and covers my eyes when I'm wearing it with the faux fur. Buy it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElCid57 Great Item for Its Price
The comfort of this item is found from the moment you get it out of its package. The material is good, the fit is excellent; the warmth that provides is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NEnglandShopper Ultrawarm Jacket
I'm very pleased with this purchase. I ordered the medium and it fits perfectly on my 5 ft., slender frame - not too snug; not boxy. The regular length is just right for covering below the hip area. Since purchase, I have since worn the jacket twice in frigid temperatures and it's very warm without being stifling. Though lightweight, the jacket does the job! I find it attractive in the chocolate brown, and love the fur trim on the hood.
For having purchased the ultrawarm jacket at the end of the season, it came in handy. It will be my go-to jacket next winter during New England's harsh, blustery season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Darcys Beautiful Jacket but Not For Me
I've been looking and looking for the "perfect" jacket this winter. I ordered online simply because I didn't realize that there is an LLBean store very close to where I live. I wore the jacket out for the first time on a day that was windy and only 4 degrees and stayed fairly warm although I found that the wind was blowing up through the bottom of the jacket. This jacket isn't fitted at all in the body and I noticed that as I was walking the fabric started to twist around my torso. Driving in this jacket was even worse and there is no way to adjust the bottom or waist-line of the coat. I've had jackets in the past that have restricted my movement but this one seems to move on its own.
Just as a frame of reference, I'm 5'7", 135 lbs, with narrow hips and I ordered a small. I couldn't wear the jacket any smaller because then it wouldn't fit in the arms/shoulders. I'm very disappointed because it really is a nice jacket and would probably work well on someone with a curvy figure or a larger stomach.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JLag Wanted to love this jacket, but I couldn't!
When my jacket first arrived, it felt very big. I have always ordered a medium with all my LLBean coats, but this was huge! I went out to walk my dog during our blizzard, and the wind went right up my back. I froze! I reordered the coat in a size small, it came, fit better, but still wasn't what I have come to expect from LLBean. It did not feel heavy enough and when I went out again in the snow, it was still not warm enough, I sent both back and will wait until next season to buy the Baxter state parka. That's more money, but looks much warmer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TomInTosa Ultrawarm indeed
This coat provides comfort against the harsh Wisconsin winter without a doubt. It's a nice enough looking coat even if its only fashion statement is "it's really cold outside". My wife (a size 2 petite) found the missus' x-small to fit very loosely around the midsection. For this reason we considered returning it, but ultimately its warmth and comfort made it a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lagunaLes This one is a keeper!
I had purchased this jacket after returning one to LL Bean that just wasn't warm enough, even for our Southern California mountains. I bought this one to replace it -- and it's a keeper! It's nice and warm, whether I wear another layer underneath it or not. In one of the previous reviews a buyer said feathers kept escaping but I don't find that's a problem with mine. With LL Bean's generous return policy she should think about exchanging it for another because I think she just got a lemon. I highly recommend this comfy jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LBJBean Great Jacket!
This jacket has been put to the test this winter as we have had one winter storm after another. It has kept me warm and dry while shoveling. It fits true to size, for me. It's not "poofy" and keeps me very warm. I like that the fur comes off so it does not get wet when it's snowing, yet makes the jacket fashionable for wearing to work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by YogaHippy Bamboozled... it's not what I expected from LLBean
I purchased this coat 1 1/2 months ago just as frigid temps arrived here in S.E. Pennsylvania. I am a commuter and my walk to the train is a lengthy one. I found this coat and love the idea of the hood and the warmth ratings. Unfortunately, this is not a very warm coat. The air blows right in at the seam of the sleeves so you can feel the breeze along the back of the shoulders and armpit. If you want warmth, layer with this coat. Also, the zipper is a challenge and gets caught in the fabric A LOT! The bottom zipper, works when it wants to and never when you're in a hurry. I had the coat for less than a month and one of the buttons, to fasten the hood to the coat popped off. The fabric is soft (which is why, I guess, it gets caught in the zipper) and the hood has really been my favorite feature of the coat.
