Rated 5 out of 5 by ronci Nifty parka for cold weather
My husband has to walk the dog early and late in the cold of fall and winter. His current down parka is heavy and warm but he looks so bulky in it. This one is a lighter down fill but the styling is much more attractive. The hood adjusts to stay on and he can wear a wool sweater underneath for added warmth. The cuffs don't Velcro close or button close; that is the only feature that would have added a tad more style and practicability. Otherwise, I think he will enjoy using this jacket and although it is not said to be water proof, I think it should be pretty water resistant in our heavy rains. The jacket is also washable and can be put in the dryer to re-fluff the down if needed. Good buy, very low priced for quality jacket and the dark navy color is handsome. It flatters my husband who is about 5 feet 9" tall and weighs 150 pounds. Size Medium was correct for his dimensions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yiyia10 fits great and very comfortable
My fiancé tried it on and fell in love with it within seconds. I chose the green color, size large he is 5'11" and it fit him perfect. It is super light and comfortable. Will buy another one for my dad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by OldBeanBoy Too tight across the chest
This is my favorite winter coat; I normally buy one every other year.. However, this year's model was too tight across the chest to wear, and I had to return it. I had the same problem with the linen short sleeve shirt.
I hope this is not a pattern change which will prevent me from wearing LLBean clothes. (For the record. I have bought LLBean clothes for at leas 20 years and have not gained any weight across the chest during that time.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElizabethNYC Parka withstood 2013-14 NY winter!
I bought this parka as a Christmas present for my husband to replace his old jacket (from another company), which had ripped after only two years of winter wear. (I was not happy.) We had tried on a down parka from another mail order company, but found the zipper hard to use and the overall coat too puffy for my husband's frame. I bought him this one as a surprise.
The dark blue color is a wonderful change from his usual black. He's 5'5", and the coat covers down to the top of his thigh, which was perfect for this bitterly cold winter. Instead of needing three or more layers underneath his coat to shovel the snow (in 25 degrees and below temperatures), he'd often wear only one or two under this parka and be perfectly fine -- and warm!
The parka also has a pocket over the right chest -- that's now where he keeps his iPhone and other important things so he doesn't lose them. This has been the best purchase I've made so far from LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WDW2014 Light and Toasty Warm
Ordered this as a second jacket (parka) for working outside as I was so pleased with another LL BEAN jacket I bought a couple months ago during the so called Polar Vortex that was not hooded...(.that I use for normal everyday wear.)....I didn't think I would be able to review this coat as the temps went back up......All of a sudden we are back in a deep freeze again and went out early to play with our dog and gave it a test......temps in teens with wind-chill into single digits....only had a sweatshirt underneath and it was nice and warm...later it got to 30 degrees and I went back out with just a tee shirt and it was still warm.....seeing the jacket hardly weighs anything I couldn't believe how warm it was....GREAT DEAL and nicely made.....A keeper for sure..

Rated 5 out of 5 by S4595 Awesome warm lightweight parka
Ordered this jacket for my 90+ year old father. It is so lightweight and yet very warm. It is super easy to get on and off even with when wearing a sweater or polar fleece. Great length to cover hips. Lots of handy pockets inside and out!
Would love this winter jacket for myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveToGoGoGo Toasty Warm and Light Weight
Oh, how this parka has been tested this winter by unusually frigid temps and twice as much snow and ice as normal here in Ohio. My husband wears this goose-down parka every day for every thing -- from long dog walks in the snowy woods to meetings in the city. He's dry and toasty warm. His old non-down parka also was warm, but it was SO heavy... My husband especially likes the LIGHT WEIGHT of this goose down parka. His height is average (5'-11"), and his weight is 175 lbs. We opted to order a TALL size large for a little more length to keep his rear warm too. It does, and the sleeve length is fine. So far, absolutely no down has poked through the fabric. This parka looks good in a classic style -- NOT like the Michelin tire man. I shopped around, and LLBean's price for goose down is the best. Very satisfied with this purchase.
