Rated 5 out of 5 by PDXVal Love it!
I absolutely love this Boiled Wool Jacket. I purchased one in a leafy green one year and then when I saw it as part of the Daily Markdown, I got it in cobalt blue. Now my only dilemma--what beautiful color do I want to wear?

I bought this jacket in the cream color and absolutely love it.
It is just the right length, the fabric is quality, and the style is flattering, I am 5'4" and weigh about 120 pounds. This jacket is lightweight and perfect for early spring and fall months when the temperature is not freezing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PersonalStyle Adore the collar with matching vintage sweater
Both are such a beautiful blue and together with a lovely large scarf took me in and out of the car for errands all winter. They do pill. I don't feel hippy with the pockets and the length of the jacket and am wondering if the boiled wool longer coat would be more or less flattering. Make me an offer I can't refuse in price. My coats will last forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BackpacksWithBooks Great quality, wish it came in tall!
I love the fabric--it's extremely warm and not itchy, and i love that it's 100% wool. The buttons were securely attached, and the stand-up collar works like a muffler. Unfortunately, the pockets were too high for me to comfortably use them as handwarmers, and the bust line was too high as well--I need a tall. Wish I could've exchanged for one! As it is, sadly it's going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Peabody10 Unhappy with this product
I usually love everything about LLBean, but this Jacket was so disappointing. I agree that maybe a bit of lining would make the jacket more comfortable and smoother, but the biggest problem for me is the length of the sleeves! They went beyond my finger tips and the fabric is so bulky that to roll them up was impossible, plus at this price one shouldn't have to do that. I really love the warmth of the Boiled Wool though~

Rated 5 out of 5 by JOinGA Very Pleased
I am 5'4", 125 pounds and I bought the XS. It is roomy enough to wear over a chunky sweater, but fitted enough to look trim. The length is to the base of my fingers when I hold my arms at my sides. The Leaf Green is a beautiful color. I wore it with black pants and a black scarf, which made the green really pop. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewHampshireHomebody Beautiful Coat
I love this coat. It is a much more slimming style than most boiled wool jackets. Be warned that it is unlined and not particularly warm. I wear it in fall and spring, when I want something dressier than a fleece. For winter, I wear a longer, lined coat -- also from Bean. I'm 5 ft 2 1/2 inches, and the sleeves on the regular are too long. I should have bought a petite, but I got this one at an outlet and the petite wasn't available. The sleeves actually look ok rolled up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RedOne nice coat but lacks lining
I just bought this jacket in cobalt blue (clearance sale). I like it but I would love it if it had a lining. I haven't found the wool to be itchy but, without a lining, it's a little unfinished. Interestingly, the double-entry pockets (top & side) are both lined! I do like the stand-up collar and the fit is fine. With a light cardigan or pullover sweater beneath it's great for chilly mornings & evenings when I'm commuting (temps: mid-30 - low 60 degrees F). I think that the cobalt blue color is much nicer than the dusk blue color that's currently available for this jacket at full-price. In fact, a lot of LL Bean clothes would be more desirable if nicer color options were available. I prefer vibrant & pure colors to murky & plasticky ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JaneDoughy Favorite jacket for the season
I usually buy one new jacket each winter and this year I chose this boiled wool one in boysenberry. It goes with everything! It's not at all bulky; in fact, it probably won't be warm enough for colder climates. But it looks great!
