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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brackenbeanie Quality, great cut, light and warm.
I have this in gray -most practical for me-and often look at the other colors because they are rich, saturated and pretty. LLBean remains classic, yet on trend with colors which change each of the three years I have worn this. The funnel neck and large pockets are my favorite features. It has a great cut which is still flattering over a chunky knit sweater( my favorite way to wear it.) I got the regular rather than my petite size because I wanted the extra length . I am very tempted to buy another color!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissHiggins Stylish go-to jacket
I love this and have it in three colors now. (I wish they made navy.) It can look dressy or work with casual clothes. It is a light jacket but I find it to be warm enough in 30 degree weather (with appropriate scarves, etc.) It fits great -- very flattering. And the colors are beautiful. I have the leaf green, red and gray colors. The price is reasonable for the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noia Love it!
I live in the Colorado foothills but hail from Chicago. The weather here rarely gets to what I consider 'cold' (anything 10F or below) where it warrants a true winter coat, This coat will be the perfect weight from the Fall to the Spring for me. In Chicago, it would probably be appropriate till about late December/January.
The sizing fits perfectly. I'm 5'11, 157lbs the large allows for layering yet I'm not swimming in it.
I have to say the Cobalt is an absolutely stunning color. The color sample on the page doesn't do it justice. Google cobalt glass to get an accurate color.
It's a lovely classic style coat, which is so hard to find now days. Thank you Bean!!
