Rated 5 out of 5áby ILikeLLB PrimaLoft Packaway Jacket
Nice fit and great jacket overall. It almost seems too light and thin to be so warm, but it IS warm! I'm very pleased with the quality of construction of this jacket

This is my go-to Jacket for Spring, Fall and some days during the Winter. Works best with mid weight wool layering at lower temps. I tried it in the teens and can't imagine relying on its warmth in those temps for too long. Wish the sleeves had elastic.Tall size fits great with room for layers while retaining good mobility. Packs small and light for backpacking.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Guildnavigator Nice Warmup Jacket
I found this jacket does not breath well during heavy exercise. Out snowshoeing this winter I'd be a bit damp wearing this jacket. It would have a sheen of moisture on the inner liner when I took it off.
However it is very light and comfortable to wear when at rest. Would make a nice warm-up jacket to pack along and wear when resting.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Mplentz One of the best jackets on the market
We love to be outside - backpacking, hiking, snowshoeing (we are in Colorado), cycling, running etc. Over the years, I have tried all of the new jackets and vests from almost every brand and this one is by far the best! I first used my Primaloft jacket when we traveled to Indiana for Thanksgiving and it was 18 degrees outside. I went for a run and was comfortable the entire time! Plus, it is so lightweight that packing it is a breeze. I love my jacket so much that I bought one for my dad and husband. My dad was skeptical because he also has plenty of jackets and it is also his favorite!
I am not sure how this jacket can be topped.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ralphe Spring Followup
I reviewed this jacket last fall. It was surprisingly warm then and guess what, it is the same this spring. It has become a grab and go jacket when temps are in the upper 40's and 50's. It is too warm to wear much over 55 degrees.
I suspect there are people that take advantage of any venue to express negative feelings. Therefore, please take such expressions with a grain of salt. Common sense would dictate this jacket is not meant for -15 degrees but I suspect it would work at that temp with layering. I have worn it with a polo and sweater in 20 degree weather shoveling snow and was sweating during the process. It is a very good, lightweight jacket.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Djp82 Retract earlier review
I recently posted a review saying how great this jacket was and praising the lean fit. I ordered another in a different color. Apparently in the meantime (less than a month) llbean changed the fit.
It is now baggier in the body (picture a very fancy garbage bag) and the arm length is freakishly long. If you are currently employed by either the NBA or a circus sideshow, the tall size may fit you well. Otherwise pass.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jdrum Perfect Driving Jacket
This is a great lightweight jacket!
I hate driving while wearing my multi-layer coat. It's especially uncomfortable when driving my roadster. It has body hugging racing seats that don't leave room for thick layers of clothing. This jacket is perfect for that. It's also nice that it won't occupy very much of the limited trunk space.
Most of the negative reviews center around it's warmth and/or sizing.
I normally purchase medium shirts, and the medium in this jacket fit just as expected.
This jacket is a compromise between size/wight vs. warmth. Keep that in mind. It is a supplement to, but not a replacement for a good winter coat (at least for most climates).
I'll also add that I'm super pleased with the green color. I normally gravitate towards greys, but the green looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5áby ATHIKERRICK Great Layer For Backpacking
I have 3 of the old style Primaloft Pullover Jackets. 2 have been used hard along the Appalachian Trail in 3.5 seasons (fall, winter, spring.) I recently bought 2 more of the full zip jackets. I've worn them hiking with just a thin synthetic top and with a Bean Down Vest in colder temps. Due to the quilted panels it does let some cold air through but for me that just keeps me comfortable (no sweat.) At night I some times wear it to sleep as I use a down quilt in stead of a sleeping bag. Other times it's used as a pillow. In colder temps I sometimes use a Bean shell. For my money the Primaloft Jacket is one of the best offered by any dealer.
I also use it on winter Mt. Bike rides as it the outer shell sheds moister very well. Great Jacket. Get one!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Vermonter4Life Perfect Lightweight Jacket that is Very Warm!
I bought 3 of these jackets for my family. I bought the small for my 12 year old son (it's a little big but he can wear it over a sweatshirt without difficulty) He's 5'4 and 102 lbs. I bought him the bright orange so that I can easily spot him in the woods. I also thought it would be a great jacket for hunting. I bought the XL for my father-in-law which fits him perfect and the L for my husband. Fits true to size. There is enough room in it to wear a sweatshirt underneath. I really wanted to buy BRIGHT jackets to wear in the woods when we tap our maple trees. Many times, when I'm trying to find someone, it's difficult to locate them. NOT WITH THE ORANGE AND GREEN! They are easily spotted in the woods. We also needed something that we could pack in our backpack if we got too hot. It can be 12 degrees in the morning when we start and get up into the 30's by the afternoon so it was important it was packable.
I usually wear a ladies Large and I wore my husband's Large yesterday. Very comfortable but if I was to buy one for myself, I'd buy myself a Medium.
Excellent quality. Didn't feel like I even had a jacket on yesterday. I wore a wool shirt, sweatshirt (have to have a hoodie so the snow doesn't go down your back) and this and it was 20 degrees and I was very comfortable. Only downfall is no hood.
Thank you LLBean! Now to buy us ladies one!
***I must also say, that my son wore his orange jacket on the slopes the other day and it was nice to be able to spot him from afar so I could watch him coming down the hill. Pack it as a spare layer if the slopes get chilly!
