Rated 5 out of 5 by nanalin LL Bean Down Jacket
This jacket is extremely light and yet, very warm and comfortable. It truly "feels good" on blustery days, but you hardly know you have it on. It also packs very well for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYer4ever Comfy and very warm
I Love this jacket. Kept me warm with no need for a sweater until the temperature went down to the 30's and 20's.
The only thing i did not like were the feathers constantly floating and sticking out of the fabric. I hope this can be fixed in the future designs but overall i am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deddle great fit on very petite person
I purchased two black and two blue jackets. We moved from Denver to Tampa and expected wonderful winter. Hahaha the jokes on us. Our winter was and still is awful, cold and wet.
My daughter and her family visited this past March from Denver. I gifted them two of these jackets.
Black was perfect for son-in-law, and blue was perfectt for daughter.
Needless to say, they were put to good use.
Back in Denver also.
Size was good for petite and average height. Colors were beautiful.Very lightweight.
Not too PUFFY.Bottom cinch cord performed well.
Jacket was warm in Fl. and warm in Denver.
Price was crazy right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by curlygirly Great Value! Very Pleased with Purchase!
Got this in black. Here's what I love:
* Light weight
* Very warm
* Knit interior cuffs keep out wind
* Price is crazy good
* Easy care
* The black is versatile, can add just about any color accessories
How to improve:
* Have a lower zipper for ease when seated
* Have a more fitted option that is more flattering
Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenRZ Comfortable, lightweight, warm and not expensive
I bought a black XL goose down jacket last month, and I have to say that it is probably the best thing I've bought recently!
I thought that it would not be as warm as it is as the jacket was so light, but I was wrong - it is very warm! Excellent value because it has nice zippered handwarmer pockets, one interior zipper pocket, fleece on the collar and nifty interior wrist collars for keeping cold air out of the sleeves. The bottom of the jacket also has an elastic cinch adjustment to close the bottom around you.
Improvements I would make is two interior pockets, and please make them in the chest area rather than down on the belly/hip area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suffolkshopper very comfortable. light and warm.
I got this jacket in two days. LLbean is the best for quick delivery. I got it in size 2x and thought it would be big and bulky. Wrong! Very lightweight and comfortable. Couldn't be happier with my first down jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anma Bean's Goose Down Jacket
I bought two of these jackets -one for me, one for my daughter. Although we rarely, if ever, agree on clothing, we both agree that this is a great down jacket. We've both worn ours outside in frigid, windy, sleety temperatures below 20 degrees. We both were quite warm and comfortable against the harsh weather. There is no hood, so pack/wear a hat and gloves...there are roomy, zippered pockets to hold such items. This jacket is very light weight, so if you take it off, it's easy to carry it around if you don't want to wear it indoors -like if you're shopping, or waiting in a doctor's office, etc. The jacket repelled very wet snow and ice. The down inside did not seem to be affected by the wetness of the outer fabric. Some have commented on a "boxy" shape. That might be true to some extent, but when it comes to winter garments, I'm less interested in the fashion aspect and more concerned with the performance of the clothing against the elements. In my opinion, this jacket is a winner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DivineMissM Runs small.
Based on other reviews, I ordered a size up from what I normally wear in down jackets of this style. When it arrived, I tried it on wearing only a tee shirt, and I couldn't begin to get the jacket zipped. The sleeves were very, very tight, and moving my arms wasn't easy. Thus, not a good coat for driving. The quality was good. Sadly, I'll have to return this. I had to check "yes" or "no" on recommendations, so I checked "no." However, I would recommend it with caveats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by anna1 Nice Coat, Light and Warm, But...
Love the color (periwinkle), fits true, sleeves fine for me. I'd like to see an inside chest pocket. While there's a lower inside pocket, another might be more secure. Nice and light, seems to be water repellent, maybe another 2 inches on length and would be perfect!!!

There are several things that make this jacket one of my favorites. From the soft lining in the neck and cuffs to the lightweight (yet very warm) feel. After washing and drying, it still looks like new.
