Rated 5 out of 5 by Janntheshopper Absolutely Love this Jacket
I purchased this jacket a week ago, and received it this past Thursday.
First off I have to comment on the color. I bought the Forest Moss Green and it is darker than the picture, but it is absolutely gorgeous. I also appreciate the fact that there are 2 inside pockets. One on the left breast with a zipper, and the other one on the lower right, right inside the outside pocket. A great place for money or credit cards when you are running into the store and don't wish to carry your purse in the store. THANK YOU for that feature.
I ordered an XL to accommodate for sweaters and turtlenecks that I love wearing in the winter. The fit is spot on. The jacket is warm and toasty and not bulky at all. I drive a Jeep Liberty, and there is not much room for bulkiness when driving in the winter. This jacket has satisfied my every need.
I wore it to work on Friday, and everyone complimented me on this jacket and the color, and asked where I bought it. I told them L.L.Bean, and they also liked how non-bulky it was.
I need a warm jacket in the winter, and did not want poly-fill...and to find this down jacket at such an affordable price just thrilled me.
I am seriously contemplating getting a down coat, now that I have the jacket.
Thanks L.L.Bean, for a lovely garment. It is very well made.
I also need to comment on the timely delivery. When I received the email that my order had been received, it clearly stated I would receive it on Thursday, and IT WAS delivered on Thursday.
I love dealing with QUALITY COMPANIES, and L.L.Bean has definitely risen to that status with this first order. I will be back for more!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Thunkybrewster Down Jacket is Awesome
Beautiful color -- got the plum. Sleeve and body length are good. Grey trim around the neck looks cheap. Would add a detachable hood. Otherwise, well worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by melly6 Orange - Plus size
On the positive side - The orange color is accurate to the color online. This was not the case in my previous purchase of the green (which I previously reviewed). It is not too bright, what you would expect from the name. I like it. The fit was very good for me. I wear a 2x and it was true to fit. But since I'm also short and didn't have the problem of sleeves being too short as some others reviewed. On the negative side - The inside of the down jacket does not need a fleece lining, its warm enough without it. Its not bulky but may make layering more difficult. Also, there are no storm cuffs from a couple years ago. It makes a big difference. Although I like this new jacket, for those 2 reasons I prefer the down jacket from 2 years ago.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LovingWhatIs Snug in hips
I am 5' 7" and 138 lbs. with an hourglass figure (small waist, big hips). For years have happily worn size S in LL Bean, but I returned this jacket. It was very snug in the hips, but poofy in the belly. There was no point in trying the next size larger because it would have been way too big in the waist and shoulders. The photo of this jacket makes it look fitted, but it's really just kind of small all over. It would be fine for women who are bigger on top than on bottom.
I was also disappointed by the color. There is nothing bright about the "bright navy." It is more of a dusty dark blue. Other than the fit and color, it is a very nice jacket, excellent quality and price. I really like the way it is longer in the back than the front which gives you more warmth and is flattering. Too bad it was not truly fitted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by melly6 Color not accurate
The coat - size 2x - fit nicely- seems very warm. The green color is not accurate to the color shown online or in the catalog. It looks like a subtle light green online. But, It is much darker and not to my liking. I'll return it and try another color. I recommend on the fit only.

This jacket runs very small! I had to return the first one I ordered for a larger size, but the larger one seems perfect. Of course, I have not worn it as yet, but see no reason I should change my mind.

I've worn out two of these horseback riding in the winter. I love how light they are and yet really warm. I'm disappointed in the latest version, though! I've always worn a medium, but the sleeves are at least two inches too short. The moss green turned out to be more of a pea soup green. It's beautifully made, though.
I'm going to exchange it for a blue large and be happy and warm all winter!

ordered the downfilled jacket and was so excited about the plum colour at first-but was shocked when I found out ,that the colour is more brownish than seen online-compared to the nice plumcolour advertised.Also the feathers are coming out at the seams!Not extreme-but worried it would worsen if I keep the jacket!The only nice thing about is the light weight !Disapointed in the cuffs-if the could be in fabric -that would look a lot better!I think I will mail it back and hope for a better colour and no feathers coming out the next time!It seems ,all the nice colours are with petite only jackets-not plus size.Sizing is actually great!

The fit is nice. Not too bulky and a little longer in the back. I usually wear a 10 and medium is a good fit.
