Rated 1 out of 5 by Boston111111 Absolutely Abysmal!
I never write reviews for clothing purchased online, but I am absolutely shocked by the number of positive ratings for this jacket. I am 5'4", 105lbs, typically wear XS/S, 0/1. I bought this jacket in both a XS and S. The S could have fit two of me and the XS added about 15lbs to my frame. It was a rather boxy cut in the torso and I found the front too short at barely belt level. The length of the back was fine and probably should've been that length all around. The arms, man the arms!!, were about 3 inches too long and when cinched with the velcro, made it look like I had hulk arms. No complaints about the quality, but look elsewhere if you're looking for a jacket that fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovinglife1 Pretty Jacket that keeps you warm, room for layers
I bought this jacket only because I had discounts~I have several warm LL bean jackets and coats already. I am very glad I did purchase this jacket. Very nice quality and the color blocking actually "slims"you. I got the blue color and it is a nice rich color. Jacket is true to size, as jackets and coats are usually made roomier to accommodate layering. I did not notice any difficulty zipping the jacket up. As other reviews state, it would be nice if it was a little longer in the back. Overall, very nice jacket and worth the price! Thanks LL Bean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolCola Toasty & enough pockets to keep a kangaroo happy
I ordered 2 of these jackets in dark blue from the daily mark-down , one for me & one for my daughter. She got hers last night & has already worn it to work at a plant nursery in freezing weather with rain. She works outside in all weathers & is always cold. She is so happy with it she called me to rave about the inner pocket with microfiber goggle wipes, the insulated hood and so many features she kept finding new ones. I got mine & wore it out in sleety rain . I thought it would be too big but realized that by the time I added turtleneck, sweater & fleece under the jacket, it was just right. Sleeves a tad long but the velcro tabs cinch them up to proper length ( I am 5'3") I am very happy with this jacket & I see it is washable as well... great to deal with winter mud & slush. The front is a bit shorter than the back but I like it as my butt is covered without making a bunch of material over the stomach when I sit down. Def 5 star coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ISOvalue Attractive and Effective!
I have been looking for a jacket that is comfortable and not constricting, but warm and weatherproof. This is it! It is roomy, but has adjustable toggles to tighten the bottom hem. There are lots of fleece-lined pockets inside as well as outside.
The shell is crackly when it is VERY cold (sub-zero) as it sometimes is here is Minnesota, but I am warm. The collar area is high and stands up which keeps out the winds, and lined with fleece so it does not irritate if it touches skin.
The fit is good, the sleeves are long enough and not too long. I got green, which has two shades of green with some white. I am very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomInTheWoods Comfortable and pretty color
I bought this in the green for my 11-year old who wanted a winter jacket that wasn't puffy like kids' jackets tend to be. She loves it! Her first words were, "It's not puffy!" Nice and warm, covers her backside, and has the adjustable features to keep toasty and dry. The hood is nice, covers her head but not too wide and can be tightened down in wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meanders Great warm jacket
Have had this a couple of months. It is a little warm for texas, but stuck in an ice storm, and it is perfect. The fit is good, not bulky, and the hood helps

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scooners Super sharp looking jacket...
This is really a sharp looking jacket...I had a hard time deciding between the green and blue, but ultimately chose the green just because it is so different. It is nice and warm and not too bulky. Wow. What a find and for sale on top of that! LOVE IT! I will be wearing this one for years...
I'm 5'7' 1/2" 120 lbs and I purchased an XS regular.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jbcscot Great Jacket!
Purchased this jacket last year and was worried that I would still be cold because I can't seem to find many coats that are really warm (to me). I have worn this in snowstorm hikes and out on very cold days with wind chills and I was comfortable,warm, and thanking LL Bean for a jacket that was all I hoped for-also liked the longer back, & removable hood. Sale price was a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NortheasternOhioan Warm and Comfy
I purchased this jacket in both the Dark Royal Blue/Dark Navy and the Beechnut/River Moss. Both jacket colors looked amazing. The green was vibrant and brought life to this drab Cleveland winter. The blue was rich and practical. I had a hard time deciding which color jacket to keep/return. But since I needed something for everyday, I kept the blue jacket, since it was deeper in color. Had I needed a jacket that would take less abuse, I don't know which I would have kept as both were so visually appealing. I wish I could have kept them both!
I have had double zippers before (from a different manufacturer) and decided never to purchase a jacket with a double zipper again. But this zipper is very well constructed. I know that I need to be careful with the zip process and find that this one has never been a problem. It hooks easily and zips smoothly. I like that there is a flap with velcro that hides/protects the zipper. There are many pockets to tuck items away into. Even on cold blistery Cleveland winter days, this jacket kept me warm and toasty. The inner cuffs keep the wind from blowing up the sleeves and having velcro to tighten/loosen the cuffs at the wrist area is a great feature. The collar fits snuggly beneath my chin to prevent wind from blowing inside the front of the jacket. The hood stayed up without tightening it and did not blow off when I got caught in a wind/snow storm as I finished my daily walk.
The style is flattering and I like that it comes just long enough in the back to protect, but short enough to sit down in the car easily. I have received many compliments on this jacket and would definitely recommend it. So far, there is not one feature about this jacket that I do not like.
I am 5'7" and weigh 160. The large gave me some extra room for maneuverability and wearing anything bulky. The medium fit me perfectly. I kept the large.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BreckCo Way too Short
I ordered this jacket in both a small and x-small. Both were far too short. Many of LL Beans women's small and x-small clothing items tend to run short. It would seem that LL Bean thinks that when someone wears a size small or x-small that they must also be short! I loved the color (blue) and style?too bad I had to return both of them.
