Rated 5 out of 5áby gkb1214 Love this jacket!
I rarely write reviews of products, so you know if must be good for me to take the time to review it. Bought this for my October trip to Boston. It was perfect! Love that the pockets are side entry and top flap. Fit is great! Got it in Navy, beautiful.
The only thing I wish it had is a loop to hang it on a hook! When I hang it on the hook in my entryway the wool stretches. LLBean, that would be easy to fix!
Thanks for a great product.

Rated 2 out of 5áby classicjazzlover Sticks out in Back
I love the color (darkest green) something other than the usual bright colors. I ordered the correct size - Petite Med. The sleeves were still too long and the way the inside of the sleeves are, they wouldn't look good folded up and would need sewing under about an inch. I thought I could do that and then my husband noticed the coat sticks out in back. I'm 5'2" and 118 lbs. A petite small would have been too small in the shoulders. I order this coat in green and in camel and both of them stuck out in back because of the way they're cut. Too bad because I thought they'd be great for a spring/fall coat.

Love the style, love navy blue, love the boiled wool, and love collar (I leave it up). I wore the jacket out to dinner an hour after it arrived!

Rated 5 out of 5áby MireilleB This is a keeper for sure
I Love this jacket. I'm between a medium P and a large P, so I ordered both. The medium is a bit tight especially around the waist. I will only be able to wear a light sweater underneath (but my merino wool sweatshirt fits underneath so should be warm enough on colder days). The large fits o.k. at the waist but otherwise I float in it in the upper area and the shoulders are not at the right place. I'm 5'1" and 150 lbs and need to lose some weight, thus the reason for being tight around the waist area. The petite was just the right length as well as the arm length.
It is not lined, which I love, because there is no restriction of movement, like I find with some thicker lined wooled coat. I also like the weight of it. This coat just feels like a cozy warm sweater, and it doesn't itch. It actually feels very soft. I'm crossing my fingers that it won't pile as that was what most reviewers said.... I'm counting on you girls for good information.
I bought the dark green because it was the "two day mark down" price which was a really good deal for a wool coat. The colour looks almost black until you put it besides a black garment. If it wasn't a question of money I would have preferred the black and would have definitely bought the lime green one as well, which are two colours I love. May be next year. But this dark green is beautiful.
The coat looks classy and casual at the same time. It has a very nice cut and the finishing is top notch. I also love that the collar goes up around your face. It is so attractive that way and will be warmer as well when need be.
Good job LL Bean and thanks for making it in petite.

I love the fit, love the style, love the color BUT I don't love how it pills small balls of wool under arms, on sleeves and on pockets

Rated 5 out of 5áby alwaysontherun Bean's Boiled Wool Jacket
I bought an LL Bean Boiled Wool Jacket maybe 20 years ago and wore it out. So I bought this style in brown and liked it so much that I ordered another in black. The size is perfect. I ordered a large and fits well even with layered tops. I like the 4 pocket idea which is nice when I walk the dogs and carry the bags, treats, keys, etc. Also, the boiled wool material does really keep you warm. A great coat!

Rated 5 out of 5áby jamilee13 this is OH SO NICE
I wanted a warmer jacket to wear in mid climate nights/days (North Florida)and this is the perfect jacket. I thought I wouldn't like it due to all wool..but I put it on and didn't want to take it off. So I didn't! I went outside walking. The fit is really nice..slightly fitted but still plenty of room. The collar is very attractive and can pull up around neck and face for wind chill factors. I bought the navy which is actually dark "peacoat" blue. Its very well made. Thanks LLBean..you did it again!
I chose medium although I am only 5'1. The sleeves are a tad bit too long but the fit overall is more comfortable for me. I am a younger woman...70!!!!!!
The lightweight wool, the style, the warmeth have made this one of my most favorite jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CosmicBlue Love this jacket too
I wore my new jacket for the first time today on a trip to a restaurant for lunch and to the grocery store. The temperature was 30 degrees and windy. I felt like I'd blow away, but the wind did not go through the thick boiled wool. I snuggled into the high collar as it cut the wind around my face. I was comfortable with a double layered tee underneath. The jacket was also comfortable inside the grocery store. I tried this jacket because I am tired of being hot and uncomfortable when I shop in a heavier winter coat. It might not be warm enough for a long walk with the dog in cold weather, but was perfect for shopping. The most difficult decision I made was deciding between brown and green because I liked them both.

Rated 4 out of 5áby warpathwoman Just received so the jury is still out
Today I just received this item after returning one this week that I had just purchased. So far I am disappointed because I did not realize it had no lining when I purchased the coat. The color (red) is beautiful and the fit is great. The coat really feels good and is really soft. The drawback is that I thought I was getting a heavier and warmer coat. I have many many "jackets" and need a wool coat so I am undecided about keeping this one.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Frommers One of the best items LLB has ever offered
Love, love, love this jacket. Have two of them (navy and beige). LLB occasionally offers such great, stylish, long-lasting stuff that I forgive them all of the dowdy offerings I've returned over the years! Ha! This is stellar. Thank you!
