Rated 5 out of 5 by JPCharismama Ordered in 4 colors
This is a comfortable, great fitting blazer. I ordered 2 when it was on a 1 day sale and came back for 2 more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Irishfolly Nicely made blazer, super value for the sale price
Who could resist a price like this?? I couldn't so I ordered two of these jackets in petite medium. One in pink and the other in green. The colors are definately pretty and bright. The quality of the jacket is very good, nicely lined and substantial fabric. I thought the fit was a bit boxy, and I would have liked it slightly longer so I wouldn't feel so chopped in the middle. Had I ordered a regular fit, the sleeves would have been too long. I'm 5' 2" and 135 lbs and busty. There is plenty of room across the chest and I can easily button it without holding my breath. I decided in the end that I'd keep the green one but two super perky blazers would have been too much. Awesome sale price and this jacket is more than worth it.

I have the lime green jacket purchased 3 years ago and have just purchased the cement color.I had to change the buttons on the green as LL bean chose not to match buttons to fabric.For the price they should match!!. But the same boring beige buttons on the green jacket match well on the cement color.The fit is great if you are a short waisted. Please keep the short length as there are to many tops that are sooo long even in some petites.I really love the jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryincanada fits well, beautiful colours
I just bought this jacket and I know that I will buy another! It is very flattering - slightly fitted but not too much. I love the colour (pink) and pretty patterned lining. It works well with casual and business clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chickladydee Great jacket
I bought this jacket to wear to work instead of a more formal blazer. It is very smart looking and comfortable. I have washed it already and hung it to dry without any problems at all. It pressed up nicely and looks great. I will probably buy another one in a different color to use as a spring/summer jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2kids2cats strange fit
I wish this jacket actually looked like it does on the model. It is very short (and I am a petite, just over 5'0") and quite boxy. It sort of flares out at the bottom, too, which is not very flattering. I sized up following the reviewers' suggestions; I think that it would have been tight in the bust had I gone with my usual size. I am not sure why I'm keeping it, except that it's very well made, as are all Bean items. I am about to send back the corduroy cargo jacket as its fit is even weirder. Same boxiness and even worse flare at the bottom. Back it goes. Bean, when you say "slightly fitted" make sure it actually is, and that it is long enough. Also, the sleeves on this and the cargo jacket are way too wide and floppy. I have always had problems with Bean jacket sleeves being too long but this is an issue of width as well. Disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BESF Excellent quality
I purchased these in the wild berry and deep lime. The wild berry is very bright. It is even brighter than the picture on the web site, so if you don't want a really bright color, don't get the wild berry. The deep lime is a great color that goes with lots of other colors well. I love them both. It is a good thing that I can wear bright colors.
The quality is top notch. My only complaint is that it is short. The web site says it is mid-hip length and it is not. It is high hip length. I really do wish LLBean made slightly longer jackets. I don't really like the modern short jackets, but it seems to be about all there is out there.
The fit was true to size and very comforatble. This is a nice lightweight jacket for - well almost everything. It dresses up jeans, looks nice with chinos or casual skirts and is a nice lightweight layer for cooler days. It is not super warm, so I wouldn't wear it in the winter, but here in California we have warm weather starting in March, so I can wear it most of the year. I will be getting more of these, especially if they make them a bit longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aggot Nice jacket.
I bought two of these because of the price. They fit well and I loved that it was lined. It is not the most stylish but a very nice staple for your wardrobe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NCActiveMom35 Boxy and Wide
I am 5'8" and found this to be too short and boxy for my build. The jacket's pink color was very nice and it is well made but the overall wide & short cut did not work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WinterIslandGirl Great Jacket! Great Color!
I just got this jacket in the WildBerry color. It is a fabulous hot pink, the fabric is really nice and it fits beautifully! Is a great addition to my spring/summer wardrobe as it goes so well with denim and dressier pants and skirts. I just ordered in another color!
