Rated 4 out of 5 by collageartist Good basic jacket
The jacket is a good overall down jacket. The faux fur is horrible, but at least it can be taken off and not used. I wish there were more interior pockets and a drawstring waist for a little shaping, but all in all, this is a very nice jacket.

Beautiful coat - warm, comfortable, soft, perfect color - plus it looks great on me! What more could you ask for?! Love it! Haven't tested it yet in really cold temperatures (I live in Texas), but I have no doubt it will do well. If it fails, I'll update my review.
Thanks LL BEAN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Collegefreshman Very warm but lightweight and packable.
My mom and I chose this jacket for my winters at college in the Birkshires. We had previously purchased the women's version of the barn coat (for Fall) in Large Petite and the fit was great (I am 5'2). Roomy enough for a sweater or sweatshirt underneath but well proportioned. I did not find it "boxy" as some other reviewers mentioned.We opted to go with the regular Large in this coat and I am glad we did. It covers my rear (important in freezing cold weather) and I can cuff the sleeves if need be. The detatchable hood is a plus. Coat looks good with or without the hood. I am hoping this winter is not as brutal as last year, but with this coat I will be prepared!

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.
