Rated 5 out of 5 by HaliGirl Very pretty
I have worn this several times as both outerwear and office wear. It is stylish and comfortable. I ordered the wine colour and love it with jeans or grey dress pants. I wore it recently on a sunny 5 degree celcius day and it was quite comfortable with a dress shirt and scarf. It also makes a nice topper for a cool office. I am 5'6" and 140 lbs, athletic not curvy. I bought the medium size and find it roomy, not boxy due to the princess seams. I can definitely wear a sweater under it. If you are more full figured, you will find it perfectly fitted. It is not lined but the seams are bound. I'd love to have one with a light silk lining. I think it would be divine!

Rated 2 out of 5 by DanieLinda Gray fabric isn't like other Boiled Jackets
I bought 2 of these jackets over the previous 2 years and loved them. I liked that it was fitted and there was room for layering. In WI layering is important as the weather can change daily. I wish there was a lining to help keep the wind out. With that being said I was disappointed with my current purchase. I bought the gray color and it was not soft and you could see light through it. The fit was the same but the fabric was nothing like my previous jackets. I hope that the other colors are like the original jackets I purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jayefromjersey this is not a jacket
This is advertised as a jacket, I would call it a sweater, period. The picture is misleading, but it suits my needs. But that being said, it is overpriced because it is a sweater. I wanted something 100% wool and so I am satisfied with it. I would not recommend anyone to buy it unless they are looking for a winter sweater. Wait until it goes on sale to get the price it really should be. As usual LLbean has great customer service the item arrived withing two days.

Beautifully made jacket, I got in plum grape and will be getting in olive.Great deal at the sale prices. Such pretty deep colors. I love the sleek look and the lightweight. Can be worn in 40s and 50s, I had to exchange for a small to get a more snug fit, and the wool stretches and drapes nicely. For colder temperatures, I plan to layer with a sweater or jacket and not invest in the heavy weight lambswool peacoat which I was planning on, as it becomes too constricting with all the man-made insulation. I love the feel of the coarse wool upto my chin when fully buttoned up. I have not washed yet, so not sure about the piling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shepaddles Brighter colours please.
After reading glowing reviews for the last two winters this was the winter I was going to order your Boiled Wool Jacket. Alas your colours are dull and boring. I could go with black, it's always classic, but with the dark days arriving it would be nice to wear something brighter. Please add some brighter colours, warm and cool tones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JavaPuppa Really wanted to love this coat
I really wanted to like this coat. It is comfortable and I like the styling, but it is not warm AT ALL! The wind goes straight through it and I feel like I am not wearing a coat. Even if it is not windy, it still doesn't feel warm. The weave of the fabric is much looser than I expected boiled wool to be. I think it would be much improved if it were lined with lightweight insulation. Unfortunately, I will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 boiled wool jacket
It is a little dressy, but looked fine with dark jeans, especially the skinny style. I had it dry cleaned at the end of the season and it looks brand new despite wearing it a few times a week. It runs large. I am 5'4", 128# and will order an extra small petite this year.The size chart indicates I should wear a small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jmay Lining would be nice
I purchased this on sale so really can't complain but I do find the material itchy so must wear either a scarf or turtleneck under..then long sleeves too. The dark green color is very nice and gives a well-dressed feeling even with jeans. I haven't worn it enough to notice pilling as a couple of reviews stated. I will return it, however, if that happens as it would then look shabby and given the original full price I would not expect that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtCatNightOwl Great Jacket
I bought the cobalt blue version of this jacket and just love it. What a gorgeous color. I may buy another color this season. It is a perfect balance between a jacket and a sweater. Very professional for work with a pinpoint oxford shirt and scarf. Another timeless classic from LL Bean. I normally wear an XL or PXL in LL Bean shirts and the PXL in this jacket works great for me with a little extra room for moving around, and great pockets for carrying cell phone around at work.
