Rated 5 out of 5 by norbean Lovin' It
This is a great jacket! Lightweight however, it keeps the wind out. Fit me great. I also have the pullover which I like just as well if not better (only because I like the pullover factor).
I only hope that LL Bean makes both this jacket and the pullover in brighter colors for hiking in the woods, when hunters may be out and about.

Rated 4 out of 5 by breezybythebay Great Concept but needs some adjustments
Love the concept of this jacket! Lightweight, warm and pack-able.
It layers well over or under other jackets or vests. Washes well and dries quickly. Fits true to size. Does a good job of blocking the wind and repelling light rain. However, the sleeves are too long and the fit a little restrictive for outdoor activities. It needs more of an athletic cut around the arms and shoulders.It's nice to have a layering piece that isn't fleece. Fleece doesn't layer with fleece. Seems like everything has a fleece lining these days. Overall I gave it a four star because of the sleeves and cut, otherwise I would have given it a five.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NMTaosena Terrific Jacket!
Just what I wanted: lightweight, form-fitting but comfy, great for walks. Just came back from an hour's walk (20 degrees) and it kept me plenty warm. Returned the regular for a petite small, which is a great fit - love the cayenne color. Wonderful for travel, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelLightly Warm with layer underneath
I'm glad I checked other reviews first. I did get the petite because of the sleeve length. I think a little extra room at the hip would be nice but not detracting. The petite is fine. It is nicely warm when an additional layer in underneath. I think I would have liked a little more tightness in the sleeve openings but it didn't detract from the use. I have already worn it outside to snow shovel and for running errands. I have a winter trip in January and know I will be packing this in my suitcase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Idahogal2 Great fit and warm
Love this jacket! Tried to buy a similar jacket from the big name brands but none fit well as I am a petite size. This is a perfect fit and surprisingly warm. Highly recommend and hope they have more colors back in stock in my size soon...want another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OuttoSea Great for travel
Love the fit of this jacket. I am large chested and short-waisted. Ordered it in petite large and it is very comfortable with plenty of room to move. Packs very small for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nomad12 Even better than hoped for!
I needed a warm jacket without the bulk. This fits the bill perfectly. I got it for wearing indoors - I'm a teacher and the schools are not well heated - but I think I'm going to be wearing this jacket a lot more than that. It doesn't seem possible that it would keep me warm enough outside, but so far, so good. It is amazing.
I got the grey and I'm very pleased with the color. Size S and there is plenty of room for layering underneath. I wouldn't suggest going up a size for layering unless you're really on the edge of the size.
I'm looking forward to the utility and convenience of having this jacket for travel, too, from cold climates to warm. There will be virtually nothing extra to carry in the warm where I won't need a jacket. It all folds up into a zipper pouch that makes a great little travel pillow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Badger53nani Very Nice Jacket
This jacket is just what I need for most Fall days in Wisconsin. It is amazingly warm for being so light weight. It fits well, and the long sleeves that have caused so many comments from other reviewers are perfect for me. I always order the Large in Bean jackets, and this one fits well over a sweater. It is stylish, comfortable, and perfect for all kinds of late Fall and early Winter activities. I bought it in the Blue Pine color, which is very attractive. I've worn it nearly every day, and have received lots of compliments.
