Rated 4 out of 5áby RubyTuesday Definitely weatherproof
I have worn this jacket in negative wind chills, blizzards, and heavy winter rain - it definitely keeps you warm and dry. The lining is very warm and comfortable, and the outer layer won't let a drop of moisture in. The downside to this is that the jacket is cumbersome to wear, and I can hardly move my head from side to side when the zipper is done up all the way. There is probably no real way around this if you want a well constructed weatherproof jacket. Also, I would love this jacket in a petite option: there was a ton of excess material at the back of the jacket for me, and the sleeves are too long for me.

Rated 3 out of 5áby DizGirl Nice, but
Ordered this in a regular Misses Medium and the coat was huge. Returned and tried a Small. Also too big.
I generally wear a petite Medium in the jackets, so I guess I keep shopping. Otherwise I would have loved the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ChemE15 Extremely comfortable, warm, and very pretty!
I am a young college student that was looking for a coat to keep me warm as I walk across campus on the cold, snowy days of winter. I wanted a coat that would keep me warm and dry, but also that was not too heavy/bulky.
This coat is exactly everything I was looking for. It is made from a heavy duty material, it has several adequately sized pockets, its hood is attached by a zipper and is quite nicely sized, it has drawstrings around the bottom to allow for adjustment, it has Velcro around the ends of the sleeves to allow for adjustment in length, and the fleece around the cuffs of the sleeves and neck area are extremely comfortable and take the edge off of any cold, winter day. I ordered the periwinkle color and absolutely LOVE its lavender/purple color with the white accents.
I am extremely happy with my purchase and could not have asked for a better product!

Rated 4 out of 5áby TeamLeader Almost excellent
This coat is very warm and light. It allows me enough shoulder room to ski and move actively. I like the brushed fabric inside and the pockets. It is sorely missing the D-ring on the outside to hook my ski lift ticket on or my gloves which I sometimes take off when I warm up cross country skiing. It is also missing a cord to cinch the waist--there's a sort of twill tape ribbon at the waist so it looks like the cord was just forgotten! There is a cord at the hips but what I really need is the cord at the waist when the cold air pours into the empty space around my waist! The cord on the a-bit-too-small hood requires two ungloved hands to tighten it. There were no instructions about how to use the cinch cords on the the hood or at the hips so you're in the dark about how better to use the cinch cords.

Rated 5 out of 5áby socalskier OUTSTANDING jacket at a great price
I bought this jacket in the teal, misses' XL. I've been looking for a "real" ski jacket for some time, and just haven't been able to find anything that fit and was affordable. Well, this fits the bill. Very well constructed, plenty of pockets that stay zipped up, and insulation that isn't bulky. Great style detail too. Got it on sale and tried it out on the slopes yesterday and was VERY impressed. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5áby maidinstitches great jacket
I was looking for a jacket the equivalent of a parka but not too long and this jacket was it! i bought the womens small in purple. i usually buy small petite, but i wanted it longer fit at the hips; it is beautiful color and looks sporty; i wore it when temps were about 40 to 50 degrees. I even got caught in the rain one night without an umbrella and it kept me dry and warm. All I did was shake the jacket and all the water fell off. I love the two-way zipper so that its easier to wear when sitting down, and the pockets are quite adequate.

Rated 4 out of 5áby ColoDaisie Update on sleeves
Changing my opinion! I spent hours in retail stores and discovered that six other manufacturers also make these with very long sleeves. Only one seemed normal, and all were much more expensive than this one. I am keeping it. Also wore it during a four day deep freeze last week and it is very warm. Great value, especially at the sale price. Sorry, LLBean, for my hasty first impression!

Rated 5 out of 5áby foreshopper Loved it!
My niece selected this jacket from LLBean's website as a Christmas present. We decided I would surprise her with the color. I chose periwinkle. When she opened it on Christmas day, she absolutely LOVED it. It looks great on her and it was exactly what she wanted. LLBean does clothes so well.
