Rated 4 out of 5áby LLBLovers Great Jacket! Just wish it was longer.
I love this jacket! It is so lightweight but very WARM. When I received it in the mail I wore it around my house a little bit with the hood on and within a few minutes I was starting to sweat. The jacket is very comfortable and has plenty of pockets for storage. I also like the fleece lined outer pockets which keep my hands warm. I'm about 5'7", 140 pounds and I went with the small; it fits perfectly. I've worn it outside on some cold days and it keeps me warm!
My only one complaint, and it's a small one, is that I wish the jacket was a little longer in the front. It seems a little too short. If it was a little longer, I'd give it 5 stars!

Nice jacket but not sure if it's worth the price. You still need to wear layers but overall it does the job.

Rated 3 out of 5áby LLBLovers Had to return it...
I wrote a positive review about this coat last year but my complaint was that it is too short. After much thought, I have decided to return it. It is comfortable and warm, but just too short for a winter jacket. I'm not a big guy, but I want my winter jackets to be a little bigger. I tried a medium (up from a small) but it was too big, and the small is just too tight and short. Plus, the sleeves bunch up and expose my wrists to the cold.

Rated 5 out of 5áby YorkCountyHunter Perfect coat
Was surprised to find that this lightweight coat is very warm, but not bulky! I love the way it fits...and there's room for a sweater underneath. Perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5áby YankeeWalker Nice lightweight jacket
This jacket is very thin and lightweight and it packs small. It's not bulky - maybe only 1/2 inch thick - the volume is like a thick sweater or fleece. Given that, it is fairly warm with the help of the hood, so it's very efficient. I wanted a midweight coat that would not be too bulky or roast me in milder conditions, and could be easily laundered. I will be keeping it, but I wish it was (a) cut a little bit fuller and (b) a little warmer. At least for my body, in my coastal town - humidity makes cold feel colder - it's only good to about freezing temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 extremely warm and packable
it is great to be able to put something this warm into your carryon bag just in case. I use this when i travel to cold places and my regular parka is just too bulky to pack. Also great when a trip takes you to multiple climates - i hate dragging around a bulky parka when i am in a warm place.
pros: the coat itself is very comfortable and very warm. also handles wet conditions very well. the chest pocket is very convenient.
cons: can be too hot. i wish it had zips under the arms to allow some ventilation. i also wish the hood could either stow away or detach.
a final thought: it packs into a package about the size of a small pillow. it actually can serve as a nice little pillow. it doesn't pack up quite as small as i hoped, but it's small enough.

Rated 5 out of 5áby cavelady great jacket!
This is not my first LLBean jacket, but it's the lightest I've ever worn as well as warm. Great pockets, too, which I find important. And that zipper pocket the whole jacket can fold into is more than big enough for my iPad 8-)

Rated 2 out of 5áby Tom30 Last time ordering from llbean
Ordered a small based on my size and others comments. Jacket sleeves rubbed armpits. Tight and annoying. Who are these clothes being designed for?
I'll go to cabalas and get a primaloft jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MooseStyle Very Well Designed
I don't live in a very cold place, but I grew up in an even warmer one, so I to be well-insulated.
I just bought this jacket and found it to be excellent. Kept me warmer than I had expected given that's it's neither heavy or very thick. The hood keeps my head warm, but stays out of field of vision well. The sleeves have plenty of give in the shoulders, so the jacket doesn't feel restrictive.
I am 6' and 194 lbs. I thought the large would be the right size, but the medium actually fit me better in the store. This isn't a jacket I plan to use with a lot of layers, so I didn't want a lot of extra room in it.
