Rated 1 out of 5 by bomburbear Coldest coat I have ever worn
I was so looking forward to my new LL Bean coat this winter, but to my dismay I could not get warm in this coat. My arms and chest were always cold. I would try to wear a sweatshirt under the coat, which was very hard to do with the fleece lining, and when I took my coat off, the sweatshirt was cold to the touch.The fleece lining was always a struggle, even when I finally got the coat on the fleece lining was hanging out the sleeves about 4 inches This coat has major flaws, think twice before spending your hard earned money on this coat.

I am glad that I was able to go into Mall of America's newly opened store to try on first as the sizing chart said that a Large would fit me but I had my doubts. Sure enough, although the Large fit, it was body tight which would not be good in the cold.
I looked online and found the X-Large misses and couldn't be happier.
The one concern that I did have with the coat was that the inner coat sleeve would come out of the sleeve when putting on. I discovered a snap and loop system and now the sleeve stays perfectly in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Twinklebelle color & style
This jacket was as pretty as the picture, lavender ("purple flint") exterior with elderberry interior and zip-out liner. The purple flint was a little lighter than shown in catalogue, but still quite beautiful. Jacket very well made, great style.
Also, although I am petite, the body of the regular misses jacket fit just fine, inc the length. Only problem was, the sleeves were HUGE. The exterior (shell)'s sleeves were VERY wide, and 4 or 5 inches too long. The zip-out liner's sleeves were even longer, 5 or 6 inches too long!!!
So, sadly, I had to return it. I would recommend it, but only to a tall, long armed woman - it would probably be perfect, unless she likes long jackets.
Also, the liner worked well, the way it snapped and zipped in place, but it wasn't that attractive a style on its own.

I wore the jacket (both pieces) on a cold rainy day (35 degrees) and it was warm and dry. I think it could be a bit longer in the back but aside from that it was good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Blooz Nice jacket but.....
I agree with the others, just returned mine the fleece acts like Velcro to clothing and is very bothersome when you have to adjust your clothing every time you put on this jacket. It was warm and kept the wind out, just not for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KLinc Made Well, but......
While this coat is made well and keeps the weather out, it has one glaring drawback in my opinion. That is that it has a fleece liner. This makes getting it on and off more cumbersome.
ln the future I will opt for thu slightly more spendy 3 in 1 with the insulated
- nylon liner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fowler911 Well-made, excellent fit!
This is a beautiful jacket that is well-made and the XS fits my 21 year-old, 5 foot daughter perfectly! She wanted a lightweight rain jacket with a hood, and a warmer winter coat, and loves the versatility of this 3-in-1 so she isn't taking up closet space having two jackets. Because our temps haven't dropped too low since she got it for Christmas, she has worn the lightweight shell and inner liner separately on many occasions and couldn't be more pleased with how they look and feel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rafterdgs Black 3 in 1 Jacket
I was looking for something to take the place of a rain slicker while providing warmth for the winter months. While this jacket is warm and repels rain, it just didn't quite fit my petite (aka, short) body as I had hoped, so I am having to return the coat. It felt a bit bulky in the chest/arm for me.

This is the second Storm Chaser jacket I have bought. I have personally had one for 10 years and it is still in perfect condition and I recently purchased one for my wife and she is thoroughly pleased. My son recently purchased one and he is satisfied as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaMoose3 Really nice coat
I got this coat for Christmas - love the blue color! When my husband ordered it, the only size left was XS. I was kind of concerned because I usually wear a small, but it fits fine over a medium weight sweater. I'm hoping it will be warm enough - the last few days have been really mild here. Like other reviewers, I found that the fleece lining does pull out of the bottom of the sleeves when you put it on, but if you tighten the Velcro straps at the bottom of the sleeves that solves the problem. I wish it was a little longer, but overall I really like it. I got it as a replacement for a similar LL Bean coat I've had for about 12 years. That coat is still in great shape, I just wanted a change.
