Rated 5 out of 5 by LoftArtist721 Great fit...nice color!
This winter warmer jacket is just the right weight for cool weather in the Spring and Fall. It is well-made, as are all the LL Bean clothing items. It is good looking and comfortable, and a fine addition to my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by burrohio Love this coat
When I opened the package I thought "how the heck is this jacket warm to -25 degrees"? I actually went back to the website to see if I misread the temperature. The coat is light but oh so warm! It is the first time I have been warm in Ohio since 1986 without walking wearing a "pillow coat" It became my go to coat for everything this past winter. I recommend this jacket to everyone. I am 5'7", 165# and M fit exactly. Enjoy!

I got a med miss -red an found with my 5'4 120 lbs it was, a little snug. I also layer up extremely tight due to living in upstate NY. I had excellent customer care in the with return, exchange, an replacement. I went with large for a little more roomy fit. I highly recommend the item I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BurrrghLady Practical and well made
I purchased this jacket in late fall, before the deep freeze of this winter set in. I'm happy to say that this jacket kept me warm through sub-zero temperatures, and was perfectly comfortable no matter what the weather. Even now that the temps are in the 40's and 50's, I'm not overheated in it. It's light weight, not bulky, and yet warm as it is water and wind resistant with a pile lining. I especially like the lined hood and pockets that really ward off the winter chill from my hands, head and neck. I like it so much, I plan to buy the Winter Warmer Coat next.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OK681 nice but not warm enough
I really wanted to keep this jacket - loved the bright red color and fit but it would not be warm enough for some of our midwestern winter days, so I returned it. Will wait for next year to try for a really warm jacket while they are still in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BellevuePAFamily Wonderfully warm!
After the Polar Vortex of 2014, I decided to find a really warm winter coat. I am one of those who gets colder than others, so I was looking for the warmest coat I could afford. I also required a hood so I could have that extra protection/warmth when needed and not always keep a hat handy! When I wear this coat with a wool sweater, my body is perfectly warm, even when the outside temps are down to single digits and in the wind. I LOVE the fleece lining because it definitely keeps the cold air from creeping in from the bottom of the coat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kt33 Awesome light winter coat
Great fit and arm length. Thinner and not as warm as I wanted. Ad said it was good to -25 which is definitely not true. It might be good to 25 degrees instead! Great for a light winter coat do I kept it

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLovesWinter Great Winter Jacket!
This jacket is windPROOF and with the proper layering, very warm in sub-zero temps. My mid-layer includes the Trail Model Fleece, over a thin sweater and a t-shirt. With wind gusts of 30mph and temp of -23F with the wind cill factor, my legs were numbingly cold, but my core was cozy and warm. I wanted something lighter than my parka for my daily commute and this was it. It's also a good alternative as a non-down product.
My non-issues: 1) the zipper is very functional and I've had no problems with it, 2) I ordered my normal size and it fits well, maintaining the look and feel of a good fit with and without layering.
My wish list: 1) to have it just a tad longer, maybe nearly the length of the Trail Model Rain Jacket, 2) for the hood to be 1 1/2" bigger, and 3) Velcro closure for the cuffs.

This is a great jacket if you are of average size. I normally wear between 14 - 16 and I'm 5' 8". I like a loose fit so I ordered a 3X, the arms were short and so was the jacket. The fit bodywise was great though. I'm sorry that had to return it

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheDavisFamily It's The Zipper...Again!
I purchased a coat similar to this approx. 7 years ago. I loved it because it was wind resistant, water resistant & it kept me warm. Too warm at times. The first coat had a double zipper (opens at top & bottom).The zipper kept opening from the bottom when I was in a sitting position. After about a year, the zipper refused to close...locked in the middle of my body. I tried my best, but it refused to budge. I had to take the coat off over my head, then, in trying to unjam it, it broke. I returned to the company & received a replacement coat in a different color. Well, this year the same thing happened. I looked at every coat on the website to find a coat that opened only 1 way. None. I have just returned this coat for a refund. Others have had the same problem with the zipper. I spent hours looking for something like what I had but with a different zipper -nothing I wanted. Overall, the coat is great....but, the zipper needs to be better quality. Especially if others have the same problem. Wake up L.L. Bean....you've got a good coat....just give it a better zipper!
