Rated 5 out of 5áby cvgjax It will make you smile
When I felt the velvety lining, I had to have it, even though I wasn't sure I would wear it much in northern Florida. As it turns out, I wear it a lot. This jacket is perfect when the weather gets chilly. Not too hot, not overly engineered, no Velcro. It weighs more than I would like for packing, and it's not particularly stylish. But it is so cozy that it is a pleasure to wear.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Scansnap22 Comfortable
I wore this jacket for the first time on Saturday and liked it fairly well. Color is great. The sleeves are a bit long but not bad. The only real problem for me was the zipper. It took several tries to zip up each time I needed to zip the coat. I have the same problem with the zipper of the down coat I bought from LL Bean several years ago (although I love the coat because it is so warm). Both zippers frustrate me very much. I don't know why this is an issue with both coats but it is and that is why I rated the jacket as average. Otherwise I was pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Goldengirl My go to coat
I have two L.L. Bean coats that get me through the 9 months of the year that I need a jacket. The Acadia Down coat for the really cold, winter days, and this one for everything else. I've worn this in everything from 20░ to 50░ and it's kept me toasty, but not overly warm, in all of those temperatures. It is truly windproof, waterproof, and has a nice fuzzy lining but is amazingly thin and packable for the warmth. Be aware that I have found this runs slightly small because it's such a straight cut. I wear size 10 pants, and the medium is snug around the middle. You may want to consider ordering up a size if you want a little extra room.

Rated 5 out of 5áby llfr1end Thanks for bringing this back!
I found this on sale last year, but the only medium available was petite. I purchased it in a kelp green color. I absolutely loved it! I wasn't sure the color would work, but it was great. I love the fleece lining. I love fleece lined clothing, but this is by far the silkiest! The only thing I didn't like was the arms are too short (because I am not petite). I own plenty of jackets, but this is my favorite especially for cold rainy days.The hood is fantastic! It keeps me warm and dry; I agree with the review that said this is more like a fall jacket. I often came back to check for more. I even found the spring point vest which I loved as well (unfortunately it's been discontinued). I found and ordered my new spring point parka yesterday in blue. I liked the gunmetal as well, but it is too similar to the kelp green which I already have. I figured the blue would give me variety and it's the color I fell in love with in the catalog. I am 5'6" 163 lbs. (bottom heavy) and wear medium.

Rated 5 out of 5áby xlntbcs Almost perfect jacket for me
I have gone through at least 4 jackets and parkas trying to find the right one for me. I live in a fairly mild climate in the northwest, and we do get some rain and lots of fog, especially this year. I like this garment because it's lightweight, just throw it in a duffle bag. I wear it under heavy duty raingear for warmth and comfort. We also get a lot of wind living by the Strait. It is very good for a lined windbreaker. Just wish it were more rainproof, but it protects for a while and dries very quickly. I wish it were more rugged as I do barn chores too. I like the elastic cuffs and the elastic hood is sufficient to cover my head if its drenching rain. Hey, I bought another one just recently to wear in town.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LyneV Warm, comfortable and great fit!
Just what I was looking for! I absolutely love this jacket... Berber fleece lining is ultra-soft and cozy, length (below-hip) is perfect. The Lycra«-elastane binding around the cuffs and hood is the greatest invention (much better than velcro) - adds comfort while sealing out drafts. Love the relaxed fit! I'll wear this anywhere!

Rated 4 out of 5áby mebsey Not What I Was Looking For
The quality and style of this jacket are both fine, it just wasn't what I was looking for. I would rec. this jacket to others based on quality.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MzMugsy Great Jacket
Love this jacket! It is the perfect spring windbreaker, with just enough warmth. It fits well, but it is not bulky. The sleeves do not have fleece and that is a great design. The pockets are deep. The zipper is sturdy. I bought for a trip to Europe and wore it for 10 days, rain and shine. The only thing missing, perhaps is a pocket up top, maybe hidden on the inside. But other wise a perfect jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Homehappy Perfect coat
The catalog picture looked like the type of coat I was looking for, so I ordered one for me and one for my mother. I didn't expect the quality of the lining and how well it drapes. We both love our new coats--warm, soft, and great looking.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jensuni Very cozy!
This is a light to mid-weight jacket that is very cozy inside. The styling I like alot as it is a little longer and covers some of the rear. It is a flattering fit overall. The only thing I did not love is the cuffs with the elastic. I guess that would keep one warmer but I don't like the cinched style on the cuffs that much.
