Rated 5 out of 5 by ColoradoHunter Excellent packable jacket
This is the perfect late fall, early winter coat for Rocky Mtn, hunting. You can reverse it while you travel and do not need the blaze orange. At first light when the temps are frigid the warmth is very welcome, then when the day warms up, you can easily stow it in your pack, at the end of the day you are glad to have it again. It has pockets in the right places for access while wearing a packet. All in all it is the right jacket for everything but rain.

I was waiting for the heavy weight liner for the big game system and because of the delay, I chose to purchase this item instead. I thought I would be dissappointed, but believe me when I say that this coat exceeds my expectations. It is warm, light in weight, perfect for hunting, and reversible so when I go into town I won't look like a pumkin. You found a good one in this product LLBean!

...Just finished a "blizzard day" on the Laramie flats, and I feel real good in reporting this down jacket to be a fine piece of gear. Given the reasonable price I had expected this to be a glorified "down sweater" sort-of thing. On the contrary, this is a very thick, serious down jacket. I will admit that it did shed quite a bit of down right out of the box, but that seems to have eased off with use and time. (A little anti-static spray helps with this in any piece of down clothing, by-the-way.) The fabric on the "camo" side is very soft and comfortable; the slicker "inside" cloth is smooth and makes sliding arms into it very easy. I suppose this means that reversing it will engender some problems, but I really don't intend to do that very much. ...All the expected quality Bean touches; good zippers, lots of pockets, quality stitching. Buy it!

i wore this for a week and it's pretty warm. however it leaked feathers all over my other clothes. it only seemed to lose feathers from the orange side, the brown seemed clean and was of a smoother finish than the orange. i liked the chest pocket, but it doesn't have a cinch for the waistline. also, the finish on the orange side rubbed off onto my pants and shirts, etc. the sizing was right for me, a large fit like i wanted. i sent it back for a refund and i'll try something else.

I was looking for a warm coat to backpack into my hunting area without taking a bunch of room in my pack. This one stuffs into a bag and is about 12"x 6". Exactly what I was looking for. Only had to wear it once so far but very warm and comfortable. I would highly recommend this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ctbrew1 Poor fit, pockets
My biggest gripe with the coat was the pockets. It amazes me how many manufacturers can't get the pockets right, and undervalue how important the pockets are. A slash pocket should start diagonally, then go down vertically so it can actually, y'know, hold stuff in the pocket. It should be deep, insulated, and the pocket zipper should zip up from bottom to the top. These were completely horizontal and wouldn't hold anything. Also hunters carry a lot of stuff, so more pockets are needed. Lastly some sort of leaf pattern on the blaze orange would be better.
Most of these problems would have been solved if the coat wasn't reversible, if you wanted a non-blaze orange parka there are better and cheaper ones out there. Clearly this coat was never intended as a hard core hunting parka.

Great Jacket, although it's a little to warm to wear now. I'm sure I'll enjoy it when it cools down and out on the deer stand. Keep up the good work LLBean.
