Rated 5 out of 5áby Flicka11 Fitness Jacket
Well made and stylish. Runs slim so order up in size. Heavier weight jersey. Longer length with nice detailing. I was pleasantly surprised.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Egbok Fitness Jacket
This is just the most comfortable jacket. I love the length (a little longer), and it really deflects the wind very nicely. I am generally a small, but ordered the medium so that I can layer. I'm not using the jacket for workouts, but using it as a packable, non-bulky jacket for travel. It is a bit more fitted, but not binding. Perfect and great looking.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Musicmomma Great fitness jacket
I agree with other reviewers that this jacket is light and flexible but substantial enough not to show every lump and bump, like some other active wear I've tried. It is very well made and comfortable. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5áby LLC77 Works for me!
I agree with some of the other reviewers that this jacket is not too fitted, but that works for me. As someone who no longer has a slim waist, a lot of the narrower styles just emphasize my problem area more than I'd like. This jacket is slimming without being overly tight. It is stylish too. I've already gotten compliments on it!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Sigourney Odd proportion
I recognise I am probably not in the target demographic of LL Bean (thought I do shop here frequently). With this in mind, I ordered this jacket in an XS (which appears to be well made, and has a nice fabric), but the lower half of the jacket is too roomy. I am 5'6, 130 lbs, and wear a size 4-6 dress. I like fitness clothing to be snug, and this was OK in the shoulder and bust, but otherwise too large. It is a bit longer in back, which is excellent for cycling.

Rated 2 out of 5áby MDwalker Too Long
I am returning due to length. I am 5'9" and the jacket hit me high thigh when pulled down. When pulled higher the zipper area sticks out when zipped. Would love, love this if length was high hip. Just looks frumpy on me.

Rated 4 out of 5áby SkichikNH Great Quality, Funny Fit
I bought this jacket when looking for a versatile piece that I could throw on for anything from kayaking to hanging out at home, and it definitely is that. It is made with the quality that I have come to expect from L.L. Bean - beautifully made and sturdy (with an 18mo child that loves to pull on the zipper over and over). It protects from the wind nicely, and is that perfect in-between layer that I was looking for. The color - I ordered the Blue Pine - is a luminous teal color, just as it looks online.
The only reason that I give this jacket 4 stars instead of 5 is the fit. From other reviews and the product description, I understood that the jacket was long, at that certainly is true. (For context, I am 5'-7" and about 130lbs.) The jacket reaches to my hips, but that doesn't bother me in the least. My only issue is that it really isn't fitted through the waist - it's a bit bulky, with only minimal shaping. I wish it were more flattering, especially considering that when I have anything in the pockets, the jacket rides up a bit and bunches further right around the mid-section.
However, for me, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and I have worn it almost every day since receiving it.
If you are looking for something fitted, I would look at something else, but otherwise, I would certainly recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5áby activeshopperNH Great for Layering
This is great for layering! The fabric is very smooth so the sleeves easily slide into another warmer layer if needed. It is a very comfortable, lightweight option for cool days when the bright color makes you feel like it's summertime, though you still need an outer layer over a t-shirt for warmth. It is on the long side so it still covers the waistline when lifting my arms, showing no midriff gap.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LelandNCShopper Comfortable and Flattering
I purchased this jacket to wear to a four-day fitness convention. It's perfect for my needs. It fit perfectly and will be comfortable not only the convention but for all-purpose use when I return.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Caron Great Quality
Since I already own almost everything "fitness" I ordered this mid weight jacket to go along with it. It's of exceptional quality and style and matches the shorts, pants and dress. I will get years of use out of this jacket. Highly recommend it for casual and fitness wear. LL Bean, please don't change a thing!
