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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Golfinggrandma Love it
Ordered small, just big enough to add thin layer underneath , but not much more. Looks sharp on,use it for golf, so enough room to swing,length perfect for me,I,m 5'3 seems more waterproof than wind proof but great jacket and would love more variety of colors.
Not crazy about rubbery Velcro on cuff but can live with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Llbean456shopper Sizing seems a bit off.
I ordered the black jacket in a petite. I have several petite sized fleece jackets and wanted the windproof layer to wear over them. The petite sleeves were great. A bit long, but fine. The torso length was definitely too short-- the fleece was longer under it.
So I sent the petite back for a regular. The cuffs have a Velcro adjustment that is sort of rubbery and stiff. I will probably have the Velcro taken off and the sleeves shortened with elastic added.
The jacket is windproof and comfortable. I do wish there was an inside cell phone pocket. The breast pocket isn't very convenient for my iPhone. A double zipper would be helpful so the jacket could be vented at the bottom. Also, the hand warmer pockets have a mesh lining for venting. I wish these were separate features.
Overall, the jacket was the best choice I found. And it's a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tomzmem Great for morning walks...
This jacket is perfect for my morning walks, if it's cold I wear a long sleeve shirt underneath and it is warm enough, it does break the wind, I also love the pocket on the sleeve for my iPod. Jacket is true to size, comfortable in the shoulders (not tight) ....the color is vibrant. Very please with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lupinblue Both form & function
I can see why everyone rates this jacket so highly??the fit is modern and stylish, semi?fitted, feminine, but still fits easily over a sweater; technically, it blocks wind completely and is suitable for at least three seasons, maybe even warmer days in winter. I just love this jacket??I bought it in black, and it goes with everything!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Yazzie Disappointment--Returned windshell
Because I have small wrists, I was anticipating a good fit. I have an older winter-type jacket from LLB with velcro on the wrists and love it. However this windshell had very stiff velcro strips of a different color. There was no way the strips would lie flat--and were quite obvious. The jacket was also a bit too fitted--would not have had room for a flannel shirt under it. I realize all newer jackets and coats have a more fitted design--just wished the designers would allow for those of us who prefer a little looser fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jwrmom Very versatile jacket
I bought this jacket to wear walking in NC on those chilly spring/fall mornings. Wore it to a theme park and walked in a light rain all day. Stayed perfectly dry and comfortable. Many "water resistant" jackets leave you feeling damp and clammy but this one doesn't. DO wish it had a hood tucked into the neck band. Velcro on the cuff needs to be longer, as the "strap" is much longer than the Velcro and it sticks out. Otherwise, a great jacket. Would be nice if a larger variety of colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by celticrafter Exactly What I Wanted
This jacket is everything I've wanted for walking in late spring/early summer - windproof, lightweight, longer in the back to cover the behind, lots of zipped pockets, adjustable wrists, and a feminine shaping (not boxy). I'm 5'3", 125 lbs and bought a small, regular size. While it is a little big for just a t-shirt, there is enough room for a lightweight fleece for cooler temps. I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bunnyrabbitABQ Great Lightweight Jacket
This jacket is light weight, very comfortable, fits great, also true to size and is warm and if you feel it's to warm then upzip the pocket zipper's and it will bring in outside air to cool down your body temperature. This is the best purchase that I have made.
This is my first time to try LLBean and will buy again and will recommend this product to my family and friends!
