Rated 4 out of 5 by DogMom202 Love this jacket
I just bought this in the dark ivy color and love it. It is a great color and the plaid and corduroy accents are what sold it for me. The quality of construction also seems fantastic. I get the feeling this jacket will last me years to come.
I am 5'7" and 130 lbs with broader shoulders and long arms. I typically have difficulty buying long sleeved items because if they fit in the body, they are too short in the arms and narrow in the shoulders. I bought a Small in this jacket and it's almost perfect. Shoulders are just right and the sleeves are long enough that I can still roll the end for that glimpse of plaid, which I love. The bottom of the jacket is a little roomier than I usually like in this weight jacket, I think it's made with someone a little curvier in the hips in mind. That's the only reason I docked a star. But I still love it.

I tried the XS Petite on in the store and it was HUGE on me. I am not that small of a person, so I am surprised that L.L. Bean isn't offering smaller size options. This is a nice looking jacket and I am disappointed that I have to look to the more expensive Signature line just to fit into an L.L. Bean coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mjkbaar I love it, my mom loves it, my grandma loves it!
My mom originally purchased this jacket when she visited one of the L.L.Bean stores in Illinois. My grandma and I both fell in love with it after seeing her wear it around and have both purchased one as well. It definitely fits true to size. Usually I size up on jackets, but I wear a small in this jacket instead of a medium. It is a very classic and timeless jacket, but it is also elegant and a little bit more fitted, which made it very appealing to me. I especially enjoy wearing this jacket in the spring and winter time (in The Netherlands), but I prefer something a little bit more warm on very cold winter days. Considering the fact that everyone in family loves this jacket, I can definitely recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by teckygrandma Nice jacket, but.....
This is a very well made jacket, nice fabric, color--I chose the dark blue. However, it was too small. It would not meet in the front at all. I have several LL Bean jackets plus the long raincoat, and they all fit. Last winter I ordered the duffle coat and it was fine. For some unknown reason sizing is no longer consistent with you. I find myself having to return more garments than I keep and I have been a customer for over 30 years! Please do something about your manufacturing standards. When clothes were made in the United States we did not have these problems!

I bought the blue and love this jacket. The weight is perfect for me as I dislike heavy coats. It fits me very well and looks great on.

Im 5'4 and 145lbs and I purchased this jacket in a small. The arms were waaaaay too long on my and the small was rather roomy. I could have fit a thick sweater underneath. I have an athletic build with a swimmers shoulders and a 34D bust and the small gave me plenty of room in my shoulders. It appeared to be really warm as I was starting to sweat wearing it inside. The reason I gave it a 4 was because the sleeves were so long.

I read so many reviews to try to determine the correct size for me, and still the jacket is enormous. I am 5'5" and 137 lbs, curvy, and bought the Petite Small. It is about 7" too wide (it overlapped the entire front of my body like a robe) and the sleeves covered my knuckles. I understand it's to allow for the cuffs to show, but I really prefer not to cuff the sleeves as it looks too casual. On the model the sleeves are not cuffed and yet do not look as long as the petite looked on me, and technically I am not 'petite' at 5'5". I really hoped this jacket would work for me as it's difficult to find a quilted jacket without a stand up collar. I did like that the material was not shiny. I doubt that the XS would work given the excessively huge fit of the Small. On the right body shape it would work, just not for me.

I purchased this jacket in Regular XS/Evergreen for a fall trip to Maine.
FYI... I am 5'1", 97#, wearing a size 0-2 normally.It was roomy enough to allow a heavy sweater underneath. I agree with a prior reviewer.. the color is "just green". I thought it to be a softer, calmer green from the pics on my monitor, which can be deceiving.
I returned the jacket b/c i just don't feel it will provide the warmth and protection I need riding the mail boat out to Little Cranberry.
It is exceptionally made, but i do not feel it is worth the cost.
I will continue to search for something enduring & protecting.
