Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyFeet25 Warm, overall good value
I purchased this coat after trying one other in a different fabric. I was looking for a longer coat that went just below my waist, but also warm enough to get me through the coldest part of winter. Quality is ok, and the price was right for my budget. I'm troubled by the amount of feathers that end up on my seat in the car. Size runs a little small. Overall a good value and very warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLbean101 Great winter jacket
Absolutley can't get enough of this jacket. I purchased it in November, when it was starting to snow and get chilly. I have not taken it off since. This is the only jacket I have used for the entire winter. (living in Maine and it's cold). I have recommended this jacket to anyone and will continue to do so. I picked the green/moss color, which at first I wasn't sure about but I have gotten many comments about it. It's very warm as well. I will warn some people, because it is a goose down, feathers do tend to come out everywhere, it does not bother me though at all, although it might to some so thought I should mention it. Wonderful jacket, can't say enough good things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by upstateabba Well-made but very casual
This jacket seemed very well-made and warm. I'm 5'8", 122 pounds, and ordered size Small. It fit well (though it might have been snug with a heavy sweater), and was long enough through the body and sleeves.
I ordered it in Bright Navy and with the contrasting gray lining and collar, it just looked too sporty for what I wanted. I felt it would have worked with jeans, but not much else, so I returned it.

I looked for a jacket and read reviews for quite some time before buying this down jacket. This jacket is almost perfect. It would be perfect if it did not have a zipper and snaps, but I could not find just snaps on a really warm jacket. I love the elastic on the sleeve ends, it keeps the cold air out. I have had no leakage of feathers and this jacket is very warm. As far as the color is concerned, it is subdued which is fine with me because I don't want to be seen for a block because my jacket is screaming color. I ordered a medium instead of my usual small because I wear very heavy sweatshirts in the winter. Love, love this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WVAtty A hard one to replace
It took 42 years, to be exact. To replace my first - and very beloved -down jacket that I proudly wore throughout my college years... up until NOW. You can still see a bit of the green paint from the hitchhiking sign for the "YES" concert that stuck to the back of this jacket. Unfortunately, it aged. Just like me. Starting to spout feathers and down. This LLBean basic jacket is the PERFECT replacement, as it turned out. I wanted something simple, functional, warm and light. This jacket is fantastic. No fancy stitching, pockets, hoods (hate hoods!), fake fur.... just great design and warm construction. I ordered two to check the size and went with the larger. In line with others' comments, a medium would have been too snug with a sweater. I normally wear medium, but the large felt better. Also, I often choose Petite, and this one was fine in terms of sleeve length. I highly reco this jacket. And it's much warmer than the old one, as it turns out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 76Anders Down coat
I love this coat (light jacket). True you do get some small feathers coming out of the seams-BUT that is a small price to pay for down and warmth. I bought the extra large and very glad I did as it in my opinion runs a little snug. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StrongWoman82 My go to jacket for this frigid weather!
I sized up to be sure it was comfortable and it is a great fit! Only reason I did not give it a 5 was because the sleeves are a bit short but with long gloves it is fine. I like the lining in the sleeves so sweater sleeves slide easily in and out of it. It is the warmest jacket I have ever owned and has been my 'go to' jacket for this frigid snowy Maine winter! So glad I purchased it! Went with black and brighten it with scarves but wish I also had a color.

At first, I was hesitant into purchasing this jacket because I'm not a fan of the elastic cuffs. But, they really aren't that bad. Overall, I really like the jacket. The design is simplistic, yet efficient. I especially like the inner pockets, where I can put my phone without it falling out and use my headphones. The fleece lining on the inside is a bonus. The jacket is neither too thin or too thick, and also light weighted. The zipper does not get stuck and even the pockets on the outside of the jacket has zippers. Theres a few downsides: the torso is a little bit longer than I thought, no hood, a few feathers falling out here and there, and the torso doesn't curve into your body shape.Otherwise, it's a well built jacket.
