Rated 3 out of 5 by jsla Not the usual LL Bean quality, but nice style
I was disappointed in the quality of this jacket. I thought it would be at a price point closer to $80. It is definitely more for style than warmth. The fabric seems very thin. I'm curious to see how it holds up.

This jacket turned out to be just what I was looking for in a jacket.
It keeps the wind out and yet is not bulky and cumbersome to wear.
Perfect for in and out of the car for errands.

I ordered the quilted riding jacket in large as I read the reviews first. But alas the jacket is too tight in the shoulders and top of the sleeves. I can only wear a very light top underneath, but need a light sweater to be warm enough in Wisconsin. I love the jacket, but I am puzzled why the shoulders are fitted incorrectly for a large? Let me test your sizing in the future. I am always outside and very active, but need to be warm too. Puzzled by this jacket. Love the green!

Rated 5 out of 5 Lightweight warmth
This jacket is great for wearing indoors as well as outdoors. It is lightweight and not binding around the shoulders. It fits well but the sleeves are a bit long, which can be a positive since they easily fold up. It also slides on with no effort over shirt sleeves and is long enough to cover longer shirt hems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kayak14 Nice lightweight jacket, but.....
This is an attractive lightweight jacket with a comfort level at 40F. This jacket is not water resistant, in fact it absorbs water leaving you cold and soaked

I love the jacket BUT totally agree with some of the negative comments --- the zipper will NOT close and I just asked for a new coat. The arms are tight and there should be an interior pocket. Large worked fine except no heavy sweater..just light one. Zipper keeps cold out if it works and it was waterproof in recent rain. I got the black one and again love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nycllbeaner Great jacket!
I am compelled to write a review of this jacket as I have been using exclusively for the past month here in NYC. The weather has been chilly / cold / wet. This jacket has been perfect in all conditions. It's light weight, not bulky & long enough to wear over blazers. It keeps me warm but not so much that I overheat. It's the perfect jacket in my opinion. Looks polished for wearing to work with trousers yet sporty with jeans and boots on weekends. It's slightly tapered at the high waist and very flattering. I was considering another very expensive brand but happened to try this on and was so happy with the look and fit that I decided to give it a try. Excellent value, 100% recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Babs45 Great coat, But !
I bought this coat a little over a month ago. It is a great coat for everyday and if the weather turn really cold putting a lightweight vest underneath gives extra warmth. However it has the worst zipper I have ever encounterd on a coat !! It has a double pull which is fine, but the top pull is small and hard to get a hold of to open the coat in the normal manner, while the pull from the bottom is large and gets in the way when zippering the coat both on and off. You need to address this annoying problem.

I am 5'4" 150 pounds, and always a size 10. I bought a medium based on the size charts and it is perfect. The jacket has been warm to 20 degrees Michigan weather, with wind. I can layer over a blazer for work. The zipper is a bit of a problem, but I have that with most of my outwear that insist on using the double zipper. I love the sleek fit and thin material, perfect for long car rides. Lots of compliments too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mama123 Lots of compliments
Bought this jacket last fall. I receive lots of compliments on the fit. I have one from the year before that was too tight in the arm area, and made it hard to wear any layer underneath. The cut in the arm and shoulder on this jacket is perfect for me. And room for layers.
Oddly, there is no interior zippered pocket. I really miss it. Wish they would put that back. I haven't had any trouble at all with the zipper. I prefer the look of the zipper plus snaps over the buttons of the previous styling--one of the reasons I bought it.
I love it for the fall into winter of the Memphis area, but the cold rating is off. No way is it good to -15, layering or no. I would say mid to upper 20's depending on length of time outside. I switch coats for the barn chores to the longer version of this coat they made last year (it seems to have disappeared.) The longer coat is much warmer fabric than this style for some reason.
I bought the XL petite, as I am well endowed in the chest area since the birth of my son. This is one of the few jackets that will fasten in the front for me. I am 5'2".
This is my favorite coat, and I wear it all the time. It washes well too. I have several of the vests and coats in the quilted riding jacket/vest line--sort of buy one on sale most years since 2007. They have all held up well to outdoor life, horse slobber, hay, dirt, riding, and chores. The ability to open the jacket from the bottom or the top whether with buttons, snaps, or zippers, is one of the best features.
