Rated 3 out of 5 by AsilAnn Need more sizes
I would so love to see this in Women's sizes. Feeling very left out of having a lightweight coat that would not add bulk to my already "bulky" self;( Had to return the XL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BostonianBeaner Perfect Fall Casual Jacket
Finally, a nice little jacket for this in-between weather! I bought the PrimaLoft Packaway especially for an upcoming trip to NYC. I think it'll be perfect for my purpose (train travel, lots of walking).
This jacket is lightweight yet cozy! I'm 5' 8", 135 lbs., with broad shoulders. I fall between sizes 10 & 12 with most tops and coats, so normally would chose size 12 (or large). This jacket, as modeled on the site, looks super cute "trim," so I took my chances and ordered a medium. SO glad I did! It fits perfectly, even with layers (tried it on wearing a t-shirt and a thin fleece top). Love all the colors, but went with black. Black is slimming and it goes with everything. And it won't clash with my new orange LL Bean backpack! I'm ready for my trip. Thank you, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GiGi24 Very pleased!
As other reviewers have noted,this lightweight jacket is perfect for a wide range of temperatures. I am thrilled with it so far. I wear a size 12, and might have been ok with a M, but went with a L and I'm happy with the fit. It's roomy enough to wear with a sweater or sweatshirt w/o feeling snug. Full disclosure- I ordered the blue pine and really didn't care for the color on me. I exchanged for black and I'm much happier. Would love this jacket in true red ?

Lovely jacket, except that the "petite" size has sleeves that are too long. Not wearable and going back. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Customeropinion Great fit, comfortable, lightweight
I ordered this in black in a large before an October trip to Paris. Read up that I should take clothes to layer. This jacket was perfect. Fit was great (covered my hips) and it was warm. Worked great in the rain as well. I am now wearing it all the time in Chicago fall weather and it's super. Adding a scarf changes the look. One of the best jackets I could have gotten. And, in Paris, lots of people are wearing them so I felt like I fit right in. I put it in my tote bag when I wasn't wearing it or tied it around my waist.Love it, love it, love it. My husband is thinking of getting one. The only thing is, there needs to be directions or a video of how to pack it into the jacket pocket.

I love this jacket. I am normally a fleece gal. I don't like wearing sweaters or heavy jackets. I prefer to layer and I wear this with everything from my everyday casual to corporate clothing. I am in and out of my car a lot for my job and I hate in the winter time wearing a bulky coat. I have to carry a lot of presentations, I might be at a job site that is under construction or carrying a box of marketing items and a bulky coat just gets in the way. I put this on over my work clothes and it works perfectly. The streamlined fit makes it look snappy and professional. I may add a nice winter scarf but the streamlined look really works for me. With my casual clothing, I wear this to walk the dogs, took it on vacation to the beach at winter time, playing at the park or just out to dinner with hubby.
I bought it in classic black, XL and it fits great. I may purchase one in a color just for the fun of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maeandra LOVE IT!!!
I bought this jacket specifically for a recent trip to the Canadian Rockies. It was perfect. Just enough protection on a cool windy day yet plenty of protection and warmth for the glacier visit.
I love the fabric. So soft. I expected to find some crinkly noise but I couldn't get it to make a sound, so perhaps they have improved the fabric.
The size was perfect. I usually wear a medium but bought the large in case I wanted to add more layers. Fits like a dream.
This will be my go to jacket for the foreseeable. Thanks LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ruthannd Primaloft Packaway Jacket - Women's Petite
I ordered small petite, and the size was perfect. Ordered Dark
Cayenne, and the color is a warm, rich shade. Very fashionable.
It has a flattering slight fit throughout the body but allows space for a fleece vest on cooler days. The jacket stows away into its own pocket. After studying it, I called a product specialist, and he explained exactly how to do that. This may be my best L. L. Bean purchase ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TravelerfromChicago Warm and windproof
I bought this jacket for a recent trip to China. It kept me nice & warm in 30 mph winds and down to about 50 degrees. The others who wore fleeces and sweatshirts were not cozy and comfortable like I was. It also rolled up small enough to fit easily in my day bag (although I couldn't figure out how to get it to fold up into its own pocket). Definitely a good buy!
