Rated 5 out of 5 Great design everyone should copy immediately
First, I'm the guy they make medium clothes for. 5'8", 165 lbs., 40-inch chest. I had to send the medium back and get the small, which fits great.
It might be just a tad boxy, with no tailoring anywhere between the arm and the bottom hem, but that's pretty minor.
Otherwise, it's a beautiful and very versatile coat. I was looking for something to fit train commuter life in Boston, and this is great. It looks almost like an overcoat, but is totally waterproof, has a great detachable hood (more coats [that aren't parkas or plastic rain slickers] with hoods, please), and a nice liner. Each piece can be worn separately or together. It's warm without being bulky, encumbering movement, or making the noise most nylon shells make. A nice array of nicely-sized zippered pockets inside and out of both pieces, as well as the button-flap pockets on the outside of the shell. The hood was a really big feature for me because umbrellas are pretty useless in Boston's wind. Other than the two nitpick things I mentioned at first, this is exactly what I wanted and nobody else anywhere seemed to make anything like it. I hope this trend spreads.

If my arms were two feet longer the jacket would have fit perfectly.

The jacket is perfect for my son. A great heather grey that will not show dirt. I am very happy with the weight- great for those medium winter days .The hood makes it even more useful. We are very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMan GREAT FOR TALLS!
I'm 6"7" (large tall) and finding any clothing is always difficult. I searched high and low for these jackets so I ended up ordering both colors as they became available. I ended up keeping the green because the color seemed more natural and a bit dressier. The fit is perfect and the inner jacket makes it easy to slip on and off. My old 3 in 1 jacket (10 years new, which I still use) has a fleece inner jacket and shirts usually get hung up putting it on and off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jollykev8 Awesome Jacket! Do not pass this up!
I've had this jacket for about a month now. I shopped around quite a bit before deciding on this one. I couldn't be happier! I recommend this product to anyone who's looking for a warm, versatile jacket/coat.
It fits perfectly. I'm 6'3"/215 lbs and ordered an XL-Long. I'm usually concerned about the sleeve length, but no issues here.
I've worn it in weather from -7 to 32 degrees, in snow and rain, and have always been warm and dry. It certainly lives up to LL Bean's promises.
One of the best things about this jacket, though, is it's versatility. I've worn it outside playing with the kids, shoveling snow, sledding, and over a sports coat for more formal occasions. It has even survived the epic monster blizzard of 2015! It works for just about everything.
Great product! LL Bean will be my go-to from here on out!

by fourms liner issues
This is an excellent jacket for warmth and weather protection. However, after wearing it and washing it, the black liner fiberfill (which is white) migrates through the black nylon and appears as lint on the surface. (see photos)
Is it caused by friction against the cotton shirts and sweaters that are being worn underneath the jacket? It is not lessening despite frequent removal of the "lint" build-up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leutie Dressy Casual
I was looking for an everyday jacket that would still be dressy enough to wear to concerts, plays and evening out events. And this jacket fits the bill nicely. If the occasion requires a Sport jacket or suit coat, removing the inner liner/jacket makes for a more comfortable fit. The removable hood is a good feature - keeping the jacket in the casual-dressy category and eliminating the bulky collar look that is typical with a "tuck-in" hood.
One caveat - I used the measuring guide in the Bean catalog and ordered a size LARGE, which turned out to be too small through the shoulders. Replaced with an EXTRA-LARGE the problem was solved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jbs123 Mis-sized - stiff
I bought this jacket last year. This is my own fault. I should have returned it. It was labeled "large regular" but was upon trying it on obviously a long. I kept it because I needed a jacket right then. After last winter, I had it altered which helped some. The jacket liner when worn separately is not bad. The fabric on the outer jacket is overly stiff with poor pocket placement. The jacket and the liner are not connected at the top of the jacket and bunch up when putting the jacket on.
It lives in the closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BubblesUp Great Jacket! Warm and Stylish
I bought this for my college-aged son and he's been wearing it constantly since he received it. The inner layer is warm enough to wear on its own, and the outer layer is water and windproof, so it can also be worn on its own. Worn together, they can handle the really cold days in the city where he goes to school. Yay, coat!
