Rated 5 out of 5 by RadioWriter Best Jacket I've Ever Owned
I can't remember exactly when I ordered this jacket, but I think it was in the winter of 2008-2009 and I absolutely LOVE it.
After that many years, and constant wearing, it shows little if any wear. In cool, cold weather, it is the only jacket I wear. At times I will wear the zip in liner as a solo jacket, otherwise it stays in the closet on the hanger, until I take it with me on spring European trips..
In the coldest of winter weather, I wear this jacket and an L.L. Bean chamois shirt and I am toasty warm ... even below zero with the okie wind trying to shove knives of ice through me.
And if the weather is in the 20s or 30s, I have to wear the jacket open over the chamois shirt.
As proof of how much I like this jacket, I just took advantage of a great sale and using my coupons, just bought another one in dark blue (my original is dark green).
I don't need a new jacket, just wanted something to switch off colors from time to time ... and I doubt that (in early 60s) I'll ever need to purchase another cool/cold weather jacket.
Fantastic product, L.L. Bean!
