Rated 4 out of 5†by JiminMO Good jacket, good price
I was in need of a good 'tween season jacket as my 2 old stalwarts finally died. I was a little reluctant to order this jacket due to some of the reviews complaining about the "crinkly"sound of the jacket. It does in fact make some noise, but not nearly the amount that some reviewers complain about. It is a little stiff. These, even put together are minor factors. The medium jacket is a little trimmer fit than I had anticipated (I am 5'10", 160), but I can still put my heaviest sweater on under it & have room to move freely. It is also a little warmer than I anticipated. I will probably wear it in the lower 40s & thirties. Maybe even into the 20s. It is more of a mid weight jacket rather than early fall - late spring. The zipper is heavy duty & the elastic at the cuffs & waist is snug. Overall, I think this is an excellent, good looking jacket. It will probably serve well through all but the coldest days during the winter, but I may need to get something a little lighter for October & April. You may want to order up a size, particularly if you are more toward the upper end of your usual size, or intend to layer heavily underneath it.

i have several warm-up jackets, but i feel llbean makes unbelievable jackets, i have several, for wind, rain, and cold. i was hoping the lining in the sleeves would be flannel. it would have been warmer. still a great jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5†by justaregularguy Fabric too noisy
I love the fit, style, and color of this jacket and look forward to wearing it this fall. The only downside is that the fabric is so noisy when I move about in it. Did I say noisy? It is VERY, VERY, VERY noisy !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe that none of the other reviewers mentioned this. Perhaps the rustling noise will abate somewhat after it is worn/laundered. I certainly hope so.

Rated 5 out of 5†by ADKwoman great jacket
We were looking for a Spring/Fall jacket for my husband and this one is perfect. It looks very stylish, the construction is excellent, and the fabric is top quality. It's just the right weight for those "between" seasons where you don't need a heavy jacket, but still need some warmth. It is roomy enough to wear my husband's favorite LLBean flannel shirts underneath too on the cooler days.

Rated 2 out of 5†by BlueberryCrisp Disappointed
I bought this jacket for my husband to replace his old fleece lined warm up jacket. I thought he'd like that it was less bulky and lighter. It was great, except one fatal flaw - the sleeves are not lined! The flannel is only on the torso. There is nothing inside the nylon sleeve to keep the chill out, which seemed silly to us. It was much too cold for him to wear so we returned it. Otherwise, it would have been perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5†by WayneC Typical L.L. Bean quality
This is a well made jacket, light and comfortable. I have just two issues: (1) it is not as warm as portrayed unless you have layers underneath it, (2) the patterned flannel in the collar should be replaced with a solid colored flannel more compatible with the exterior (navy in this case) because it clashes color-wise. These are my personal opinions, of course.

Rated 4 out of 5†by JES40 Nice Looking Jacket
This is a nice looking jacket, but not warm enough for my husband. Therefore, we exchanged it for the fleece lined one. The temperatures are very low so this jacket will need to sit in the closet for awhile till the weather is around 40 degrees.

The warm-up jacket wasn't available in the store so I placed an in-store order and had it sent to me. I received the jacket and was very pleased with the quality of the fabric (both outside and inside) and the workmanship; the XL was true to size. I'm very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend it to others.

This well fitting jacket feels great for cool weather. With multiple layers in addition to the jacket, it is all you need for winter wear and avoids the bulk. The flannel lining provides added comfort. It looks great with my flannel shirts from LL Bean. Thanks for another quality product.
