Rated 3 out of 5 by fmdidgad no pockets
I like the raglan sleeves and ordered a large for a loose fit even though I normally wear a medium. It fit well and was long enough in the back. The zipper pocket opening is okay, but no pockets are attached. The opening lets things fall into the front mesh liner of the jacket. I will have to buy pockets and install them to the opening. This jacket pocket is very shoddy construction for a jacket that costs $69. I'm disappointed with L.L. Bean quality in this product. I have an older Gore Tex raincoat from L.L.Bean and it has individual pockets.

Nice quality, and length in sleeves and body. Not slim fit, which does allow layering underneath. Great jacket and I would recommend to a friend.

Very nice, lightweight jacket. one slight, very slight complainant and I hate to use the complaint but the Velcro on the cuffs good be a little wider. Still, I'm very pleased.

This jacket is a keeper, and receives many second looks from friends. I bought the Petite (5'3") however wish it were about 2 inches longer. Most of my fitness tops do not come in Petite sizing so they hang below the bottom of the jacket. I like a neater look. Maybe Bean could consider Petite sizing in their active tops! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lee61 Fit of this jacket was off
I was disappointed in this jacket, The fit of this jacket was off somehow, it just didn't look good on, not flattering at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Weiserite Very stylish jacket
Nice style and blue color, a little trim in the hips and too long in the sleeves for me, however. The cuffs as mentioned in other reviews are a puzzle. Why would they have such a stiff tab to cinch up the cuffs, leaving a stiff bit of velcro sticking out like a spike. Not sure how I'll alter the cuffs to correct that problem. This is the reason I would not recommend this jacket to a friend. It is a windbreak jacket, but not windproof, still better than a fleece jacket which I was striving for. One will need to wear something long sleeve under it to stay warm enough in a brisk wind at 70 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 49er My New Favorite
Great for moderate weather over a medium layer. Adjustable velcro cuffs (although the plastic inflexible tab is longer than needs be and gets caught on things-I will be trimming it). I bought the basic black, would buy another if the others were a solid color. Very light-weight and packs easily. Quality throughout. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KiwiCamper Great little jacket
Very comfortable, lightweight, excellent protection from wind. Especially like adjustable sleeve cuffs (I'm a boat paddler). Stylish, too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mtbjane Nice, but sizing is a bit off
I purchased the petite xs in the jade/citron. The jacket is very lovely and I get lots of compliments on the color. I use the jacket for mountain biking and wear a layer under the jacket for warmth.
Although I love the jacket, I find it a bit short. So, I ordered another jacket in the regular xs size in blue. Although the regular size is a bit longer than I desired, there is a three inch length difference in the petite and regular sizing. I think this size difference is too much. I would expect a two inch difference between the sizing.
I still like the jackets. It is suitable for cooler, fall weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 Just what I wanted!
I wanted a light weight but warm and bright jacket for cool weather bike rides. This was perfect and just as described. Good fit and roomy. Would highly recommend. Rolls up small and feather light for travel too.
