Rated 3 out of 5 Ok fit, lighter weight than it seems online
I don't have an LL Bean store near me but was excited to have found this jacket online, esp. since a quilted jacket has been on my wish list! The jacket arrived yesterday and I'm not sure whether I'll keep it, to be honest.
The color (dark ivy) looks exactly as advertised. The fit is actually more reasonable than what I was expecting, based on all of the reviews. I'm 5'4/110lbs, ordered a petite XS, and it fits ok. A bit loose in the back (even when snapped on the tighter setting), and the sleeves and torso part are just barely long enough for me. I would have exchanged it for a regular XS for more room in the sleeves and to cover my bum, but customer service said those are backordered until next summer.
Even if the fit were perfect, I'd still be wondering whether to send it back. It truly is a much lighter weight than I thought the jacket would be, esp. when you think about the price. It can't weigh more than a few pounds. The relaxed fit gives you room for a sweater, but I certainly wouldn't wear this in weather under 40 degrees, even with a nice warm layer underneath. The exterior also seems like it could tear fairly easily.
Overall, it's cute if you don't want a super fitted jacket and would be good for coolish spring and fall days, or if you have mild winters. Not sure if I would recommend this, and not sure if I'm keeping the jacket myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gotttabme nice jacket but...
I ordered the olive green coat in a size medium. The fit and color were good but the fit was tight in my upper arms when extending forward. I'd like more room in the sleeve and a clothe lining. I've returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by westcoastnative Pretty jacket and perfect for fall/spring
After reading the reviews I wasn't sure if I should buy this jacket. However I took a chance and I'm glad I did. Such a pretty and feminine jacket! Although the material is thinner than expected, it's surprisingly warm even on windy and cold autumn days. The adjustable tabs in the back are nice when wearing multiple/thicker layers. With the exception of the sleeves being a little long, I didn't have any issues with the size. The cuffs can be rolled up to reveal a nice plaid pattern. For size reference I'm 5'5",between 145-150 lbs and ordered a medium petite in green. Quick note-the green colorwise is closer to an olive/hunter green than ivy but still a pretty shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mass5 Great jacket
This jacket is perfect for me. I am 5'8", 170 lbs with a straight shape and long arms. The size L fits wonderfully. It's lightweight yet warm and the sleeves are just long enough. It is very flattering.

although the catalog picture indicates a dark ivy green the only
part that is dark ivy is the corduroy collar, the jacket is a medium
off green... I can not be bothered with returning it and exchanging it for another color probaby should have ordered the cayenne color and the jacket is very light weight for fall or spring

Rated 5 out of 5 by warmandhappy98 Great jacket- peoples reviews aren't accurate
I was very hesitant about ordering this jacket from all of the mixed reviews. Some said the arms were for twigs, some said they were too long, some too short. I have larger arms so usually thats where jackets run tight on me, after speaking with customer service and them giving me the actual circumference of the upper arm hole, it seemed like I would have plenty of room. what do you know... I DO! Love that the sleeves are too long because of the cute plaid on the inside, one cuff and you have the perfect contrast.
Also some people must be lying about their weight or my fat is more evenly distributed throughout my whole body :) but Im about 5'4' 180 and the jacket it lose in the stomach and waist, fits nicely with layers but a medium would have definitely been too small. So not sure how people that are "smaller" than me and ordered a 2X and still had it to small.
If you are questioning if it fits you, contact customer service for all of the measurements, I do have to say that i exchanged it but the only reason was because I wanted to change the color i purchased. Great jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbean2432 Perfect Fit
I previously ordered the Flannel Lined Barn Coat and returned it because I was looking for something a bit lighter weight and with a slimmer fit- this jacket is perfect for that! I am 5'1'' and 125 pounds. I ordered the XS petite and it fits very well. The sleeves fit perfectly when I cuff them at the bottom, which is great because it show off the nice flannel pattern. I haven't worn it in extremely cold temperatures yet, but I think it will still fit nicely with layers. It's super stylish, I ordered it in the green and absolutely love the color. I would certainly recommend this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by birdiegal just okay
I was seeking a semi-warm coat for spring and autumn, so I gave this a try. I am 5'2", 40" chest, and ordered both PL and PLX. Unfortunately, neither was quite right... one too snug; the other too roomy. In both sizes, I disliked the pointy shoulders.
The sleeves were too long in both sizes, and - just a personal preference - the very masculine-looking plaid lining was not to my liking.
Nothing terribly wrong with this jacket, but it was not worth keeping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by capecodmom61 My Dream Jacket!
I've a bit nutty over the color green and have been looking for a lighter weight jacket for several years. Even in the dead of winter here in MA, I dislike being bundled up in the car when I'm traveling or doing errands, so I've passed on heavier green jackets and I'm so glad I did. This jacket is an absolutely beautiful (or, as we say in this part of the country, it's GAWJUS) shade of green and the longer length is perfect. By the time I found this jacket, the only size left was XS and since I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs. I decided to give it a try and it fits perfectly. I can move the waist tabs back a bit when I'm wearing a lighter shirt and back to their original position when I'm wearing a heavier sweater. It's well made and I love the rolled cuffs with the plaid showing. I couldn't be happier!

I am petite and the extra small fits perfect. My dark ivy jacket is warm, comfortable and stylish. I wear it daily on my work commute to the city as well as weekend trips to New Hampshire and Vermont. Overall great fall jacket!
