Rated 5 out of 5áby Isom Perfect jacket for me
I have been wearing the older version of this jacket for probably 10 years. I noticed this winter that the sleeves edges were frayed so decided to order a replacement. I certainly got my money's worth on the last one. I first ordered the Regular Large which was the size of my previous jacket. It was too tight in the neck when it was buttoned and zipped up. I would not have been able to wear a neck scarf in the winter. Also, the sleeves were a little snug over a lightweight turtleneck and the sleeves were about 2 inches too long. I have a narrow neck and long arms so the measurements were truly off on that jacket. I reordered the Petite Extra-large. It came today and fits well. The sleeve length is perfect and the neck is roomy. It is a little large through the body but I took it up with the tabs and it looks great on. The petite was still long enough to go to bottom of my hips and I am 5' 5" tall. The jacket is lighter weight than my previous jacket but really I think I will get more use out of it because I can layer when it is colder. It definitely is not rated for the cold weather rating it was given.

I find this jacket ideal for driving, walking and normal in/out running around. A very nice casual jacket for everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5áby STAR69 Great transitional weather jacket!
I agree with other reviewers, this is a perfect Spring/Fall jacket. It's not warm enough for a Northern winter, but works well with a light-medium layer from 40-60 F. It's a loose fit: you can layer quite a lot here. The arms run long (I have long arms, and these arms are still long), probably so you can roll the cuff and still have adequate arm coverage. The waist snaps on the tighter setting give the jacket a nice shape. The fabric is matte/dull finish, which is great - I prefer that over a shiny nylon look. Good length, long enough that your sweaters won't show below the hem. Very cozy.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Ramblewood Loved the fit and casual look.
I didn't keep this jacket because it wasn't warm enough for what I wanted and having horses, I already have riding jackets of this weight. That being said, I really liked the jacket, it would have been perfect for warm fall or warm spring days....not a winter jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5áby 30yrBeanGirl Quilted Riding Jacket
I ordered the XS-Pet. I believe this jacket is rated to 15 below zero. I wore it on a 20 degree day with just a t shirt underneath. Was a little chilly, so I don't know with what underlayer L.L. bases this temperature claim. I'm returning it because I would have preferred it a little longer over the hip area. Just a personal preference. I'll return the XS Pet. and reorder in the XS-Regular. If the sleeves are too long it's nice that you can turn the cuffs back to reveal the plaid lining. Great classic, always in style!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Junebug444 Pretty but not warm
The updated jacket is pretty, the cut beautiful but it is not warm enough. The rating of up to -15 is definitely not anywhere close to accurate. I returned it because the difference between this one and the previous version in terms of warmth is minimal.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Karleyrose Comfortable,great fit,great style.
Love this coat.!! Looks great ,the fit is great.Stylish,good length.
Don't no if it is waterproof as I haven't had the opportunity to wear it in the rain.Not much rain in SoCal.
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that it is not as warm as I thought it would be. Warm enough for California and a sweater underneath fixes that problem on days when our temperature
goes down to the low 50's.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Bluebird1 ZIPPER
First, I'm a loyal LLBEAN customer. I'm giving the ZIPPER a one star, not the coat. I love everything about this coat. I know the zipper is reversible. I have a baxter state parka that has a reversible zipper and i can still zip it after 20 years. I can't zip this coat. I've tried a day later, a week later and i still can't zip it without it getting stuck. Honest, i'm a competent person. I do not want to send this coat back but i have to. I will purchase the coat in the future when you've fixed the zipper..

Rated 5 out of 5áby PortTownsendMan Wonderful lightweight coat
Purchased this coat to wear in Northwest Spring/Fall weather before/after heavy rains. It is lightweight but enough fill to maintain warmth for walking and shopping trips.
I purchased size P. Lg. to have room for lightweight fleece if necessary and size allows that flexibility for me - usual size Petite 12, 5'3", coat falls just below back side, good coverage.
The two-way zipper as well as snaps allow flexibility in moving for car entry, sitting, etc. I love the black with muted plaid lining, very satisfied with this purchase!
