Rated 5 out of 5 by AlmostLisa Great lightweight jacket
I was looking for something very lightweight with pockets, and this is just perfect. It is a twill material like a twill shirt, and both zips and buttons up. It is perfect for those mid 50s and 60s degree days when you just want something light and breathable, but a fleece jacket or sweatshirt is too heavy. The only thing I don't like about it is that you can't stick your hands in the pockets from the sides; they only open at the top.

Rated 2 out of 5 by crznszn Disappointing
Although this is similar to the Luna jacket, which I have and love, I found it to be lacking. The zipper is very flimsy, and it can't be unzipped from the bottom to give more room for sitting. Also, unlike the Luna jacket, there is no cuff adjustment. There is only one snap, and the cuffs were very wide and fell over my hands. The jacket was cute on, and I love the stone color, but who wants a jacket you can only wear with the sleeves rolled up? Sadly, this was one of my few L.L. Bean purchases that went back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Countrydogwalker Field Jacket
This jacket looks nice on but the sleeves are too tight to accommodate a sweater underneath. The jacket fits like tailored blazer rather than a field jacket. If you only plan to wear a thin shirt or T-shirt it's okay but if you really want a jacket you can layer, or roomy pockets this is not the jacket you want. Another problem, the zipper is cheap and won't hold up to long wear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RaptorLover Not Really A Field Jacket
I liked the way this jacket looked online, before I bought it. It was $89, & the color I liked was only $59. However, when I got it, I was sorely disappointed. This can hardly be called a "field jacket." It is not any more than a shirt with field jacket pockets on it. The fit was fine, & I did like that it had a little stretch in it. But I wanted something to wear for the start of autumn. This might be good for those summer evenings when you just need to cut the breezes; but it is definitely not going to be warm enough for even early autumn. And it is surely overpriced for what it is, even at the sale price. Sadly, I have to return it. Back to the drawing board *sigh*.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HonestShopper I really want in white
This is the second time I am writing about this jacket. In this spring I was wearing this jacket in island coral color almost everyday. I saw the new Lined Freeport Field Jackets in the summer catalog. I really don't need a fleece lining for spring or summer. When it is getting too warm to wear it, it must be very annoying to carry such a heavy jacket. Please bring back unlined Freeport Field Jackets in white and rhubarb colors included. I think that most reviewers want thicker fabric, not a fleece lining.

I love this jacket - so much so that I think this is my first review after years of purchasing from LL Bean! I bought this for a trip to France, and it was the perfect layer for 60-70 degree weather. And actually chic enough for Paris, especially when paired with a scarf. I only wish I had seen the lined version before my purchase, for comparison at least, but am very happy with this regardless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cin1295 LOVE THIS JACKET!!!!!!
This is the perfect jacket for cooler spring and summer days. I purchased this in Soft Moss and paired it with the LL Bean Floral dress in Sea Grass for a great traveling ensemble.
I love this jacket so much that I have to purchase another one in a different color, maybe even 2 more!!
Please keep making this jacket as it is extremely comfortable and just enough on a breezy day or in a cold airport!

Rated 5 out of 5 by aquamaid Versatile, very cool jacket
Great quality jacket and the petite is perfect for my 5'4" height. I see this as a 'go to' jacket for spring, summer and early fall. Easy to fold and pack, too. Zippered pockets are a nice touch to carry cash, a credit card and keys for a quick outing. Get it, you'll love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PatKCalifornia NOT a Barn Coat ...
What I was really looking for was an unlined or lightly lined traditional barn coat. You know ... sturdy canvas fabric, loads of deep pockets, falling to below hip level, with those neat contrasting cuffs and collars, etc. But try finding one of those! All you can find nowadays are barn coats with heavy linings, which I can only wear one or two months a year where I live in Northern California. So I gave the Freeport jacket a try, and knew immediately it was no barn coat. Way too short, not very sturdy, and with a weird styling ... the business of the back of the coat being longer than the front has never looked very attractive on me. Sigh. I sent it back. All I want is a lightly lined or unlined barn coat!! Wonder if I'll ever find one?

Rated 5 out of 5 by leg71 Great jacket!
As a person who is often chilly and needs a light jacket, this fits the bill perfectly! The length is true to size. I ordered a 2X because I am a size 16-18 and was worried the arms may shrink in length and width. The muted blue color is a great color and a nice neutral choice. I would buy this again and recommend it to friends and family
