Rated 5 out of 5 by SkiMaine311 Finally LL Bean gets it!
I'm so happy with this jacket! I had been boycotting LL Beans jackets for the past few years due to the cuts that seemed to be way off. I had been frustrated for years with the short lengths of the jackets (I'm 5'9") in both the torso length and arms. I came across this jacket online and really wanted to love it, but knew I better go to the store to try it on. So glad I did because I love it! The length is just right and the sleeves are perfect and do not expose my wrist/forearm when I lift my arms over my head. I've been wearing it daily and have had no complaints. I plan on wearing it under a shell for ultimate warmth during ski season. It's great on its own right now, but will need a shell for very cold winter days. Oh- and the hood is great size too for a ski helmet. Love this jacket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by browndogz Nice but...
I like & am enjoying this jacket, but I wish that the outer texture was either smoother or softer. Also, the sleeves run long, so I've just folded them back on themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1324ster Good Jacket
I play tennis 2x week and bought this to keep me warm in the elements and so far so good. The hood has good fit as does the jacket. My only complaint is the belly area does billow a bit. All else has a good fit... not too stretchy... just enough to keep the warmth in. Also moveable, which I really like.

I misrepresented this jacket in a recent review, thinking of another jacket that I tried on in a store. This jacket has plenty of pockets, and they zipper shut. I just didn't like the fit (very snug) or the fabric. Both are a matter of preference, so I am balancing out my previous 1 star with 5 this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by veganrocker Surprised at how much I like this item
I was looking for a shell to wear mid-season for outdoor activities - dog walking, jogging, yard work, and hiking. I ordered this item thinking it looked too fitted for my curvy, petite frame, but I was pleasantly surprised. It is a very slimming and flattering shell. It's well-made, while it is somewhat fitted my regular Petite Medium was sufficiently roomy to allow lots of room for movement and even for layering. Worn with a vest, it will be a nice garment to use for winter sports in cold but not freezing temps. The blue color is lovely and neutral enough to wear with everything I own. All in all, this one was a winner, and with coupons and a sale, reasonably priced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by EllicottStreet Not for me
This jacket was just not what I was looking for. It fit very, very snuggly and the fabric was not appealing to me (although I have seen many jackets of similar fabric in the stores, so I know some people like it). Also, it was short on pockets and the pockets it had didn't zip shut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrilledCheeseTomatoSoup Versatile Layering Option - Perfect for Travel!
In gearing up for a recent international trip, I needed a layering option that would work in a highly varied climate. I found it with the Women's Ascent Power Stretch Hooded Jacket! I wore this jacket in incredibly windy conditions, and this fabric did a great job with blocking most of it.
I'm 5'4" and weigh 130 pounds. The small size hits me below the hip (great length!) and the sleeve hits about mid palm. The shoulders fit comfortably without too much extra fabric. The midsection is looser, but still trim looking.
Overall, this is a great, well-made piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by redpoppy Just what I was looking for!
This women's stretch hooded jacket is great. Very comfortable to move around in. petite size fits my arms perfect, still down my hand halfway but better than too long past my hand. Nice lightweight but keeps me warm. I wanted a jacket for in between seasons and cool summer nights that was good in handling some rain/wind. Think this will be perfect. This also goes down to my low hip which I love. I bought a different jacket thru llbean thats light, more of a shell, in petite. It only comes to hip and I wish it was low hip like this one.
