Rated 4 out of 5 by FirebyFlint Too small
I thought the size was a little tight but acceptable but my family is telling me to return it. I bought an extra large and it is just too small.
I've never bought any clothing over an extra large in all my life and I am considered skinny by many. Heck, I can eat a meal of 2 helpings and still not gain weight with snacking in between meals!

Rated 4 out of 5 by fairlyfitforties good quality
This gilet has a great hand, the fabric is nice and soft, and the colour is visible in low light, only ... there's not a whole lot of reflective striping, so activities - cycling, jogging - prior to dawn, or past sundown might require a bit more reflective umph. I ended up sending mine back, not because I didn't like it, but because it was lacking some functionality for the price ... I didn't realise how much I would miss having pockets in the front. That said, this is a quality shell that presents a fitted silhouette. It just depends for what, and when, you want to use it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by TheEyesofTexas Cut way too small
As is so often the case with merchandise from L.L. Bean, this jacket was cut way too small in comparison with your competitors. It did not fit. We ordered a large, and it was at best a small. Please work to improve your sizing.

Perfect weight for cool temperature riding. I have trouble finding a jacket that breaths, yet is a good wind breaker; this jacket does both. I also have trouble finding fabrics that do not irritate my skin, especially around the neck. this jacket is soft and no-abrasive; a rare find. I especially like the bright color and used to use a riding vest; now the jacket fits the bill for daytime riding, especially in cloudy or low light conditions. Great fit and comfortable to wear. I love it and would recommend without reservation. I wear a large and ordered and extra large, which is roomy enough to wear a light jersey underneath on cooler days.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SavvyShopper22 Smells horrendous shortly after use
This is a nice product if you don't mind clothes that smell awful after wearing. Most of the polyester clothing that has come out in the last few years smells horrendous if you don't remove it very, very soon after working out. This is true of all the leading manufacturers I have tried, not just LLBean. The clothes are washed and smell pleasant when leaving the house. I run with a club and then hang out for a bit of social. After about 20 minutes it smells so bad I can't stand myself. It's not helpful when trying to be social. I have run for years and only the new polyester "sweat wicking" materials do this. This happened on even the very first time I wore it. My friends have the same not so pleasant odor from their "high tech" clothes also.

My husband is generally a M - L size, so I order the large and it was still too small. XL fits great. Nice jacket - he likes the pocket in the back

Rated 5 out of 5 by dlmomunee Perfect jacket for biking and running
I purchased this jacket for my husband and he loves it. He runs and bikes in the jacket and it stays put. It is lightweight and warm. Perfect. I will definitely purchase another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Taychopera Red Izumi Barrier Jacket
Great styling, vivid colors. Runs very close to the body. The large fit my son who normally likes a close fit and wears a medium to get it. The large was way too small for my husband for whom it was intended. I reordered a XL for him.
If you are in between or broad shouldered, order a size up.

Good fit, great color. Like the medium weight, should be good for most of the year here. Wish it had side pockets, instead of just the 1 in back.
