Rated 4 out of 5 by Keith49 Synthetic Fabric-Not Cotton
I was hoping for more of a cotton feel to the exterior. The fit though was great. I am 601 and 240 lbs with a long torso. I ordered XL tall and got a perfect fit. The jacket is a little more tan looking than the photo. Lets see how long it lasts for a final score.

Rated 5 out of 5 by foster72 Nice lightweight jacket
I can usually go with a large or medium jacket. To be on the safe side, I ordered a large, but it was a bit too big.
The exchange was a snap! I would say the jacket runs just a bit on the larger side, so the medium is perfect for me.
The khaki is a nice color and I really like the plaid lining. Given a choice, I would rather have zippers on the outside pockets, but that's a minor gripe.
Overall - a very nice jacket.

My only disappointment is that it does not have the L.L. Bean logo on it.

I would give LLBean shopping a 5 and the quality of the clothes. The items I ordered for my 75 year old husband did not fit. The Blzr (size 42 that is his size) was too small and short and really looked funny. The Chino pants fit the waist and length but were real baggy and you couldn't even find the person inside! (My husband weighs 200 lbs and is 5'11") The Easy Care jacket fit great and material light weight but the color was a gold color instead of khaki. We did keep the short pants and he is enjoying them but I think they also look buffy--color and fabric are great,. I think maybe the clothes are designed for a younger man!

Very nice jacket, but watch sizing. Size large" usually works for me with LLBean jackets, sweaters, etc. I returned for extra large, particularly as I wanted option to "layer" in cooler weather.

I bought this for my husband, and he is delighted. He likes the elastic cuffs. The jacket is a good weight for spring, and the rain repelling fabric is a plus.

I recently purchased the updated Newburyport Easy-Care Jacket
for my husband who developed a paunch and he couldn't
fit into his older model Newburyport jacket. Much to my surprise
he liked the new jacket and it quickly became a favorite. The
current jacket fits him well and has all the same detailing as his
older model except for the sleeves and the fabric which is much
improved. In fact the elasticized cuffs are perfect because the
sleeves are obviously longer on the new jacket because of the larger size and they fit well. Thank you L. L. Bean for keeping
your customers happy.

Great light jacket. I purchased the tall because it gives you a bit more fabric.

A well constructed and well fitting jacket, but pricey and didn't like the fabric which may keep out rain, but has a chilly, slick and uninviting feel. I sent it back.
