I wear this jacket spring and fall! Perfect weight, great look! Washes wonderfully. I do have to spot iron it. Fits true to size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by swami The Great Debate
I actually saw this item at my local store and decided to try it on. I was looking for a stylish jacket in a neutral color with lots of pockets that would be good for travel. It looked great on - very stylish, great fit - absolutely adorable! I felt chic! However, it is true that the pockets are useless except for small items. My cell phone does not even fit in the largest pocket. It is also quite expensive, in my opinion, for the weight and usefulness. As a result I did not make the purchase. However, I could not stop thinking about it, once I got home. So the debate began. In the end, I decided that the pros outweighed the cons, and I returned to the store to purchase one. I did have a $10 coupon which made the cost slightly more reasonable. I am 5 foot 4, 35 inch chest, 29 inch wait, 39 inch hip. I usually wear a 4-6 top and 6-8 bottom at LL Bean , depending on the cut of the item. I carry my weight in my hips and thighs. I purchased an XS Regular in Mineral Red, and it is fitted while still being comfortable. The small had too much material in the chest area and I had to cinch the waist too much to make it look right. I can wear it over a tee , button down shirt or lightweight sweater. The Mineral Red is not red - more of a salmon color - but very pretty! I decided for a pop of color instead of a neutral. I would wear it every day if I could! The material is lightweight and the zipper is not heavy, but I know that if I have any issues, LL Beans stands behind their products 100%!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky1234 Great Jacket!
I really like this jacket, it is great for a casual look on mild spring days. It is unlined but loose enough to wear a sweater underneath. I like how you can cinch it at the waist for a more feminine look, and all the pockets. For reference, I am 5'1", 125lbs, and a small petite fits perfectly with a little extra room for layers underneath.

I now have three of these shirt-jackets which go with anything, all year long. I could easily be tempted to purchase a 4th if it is made available in black. I had to exchange the print jacket because it was a bit smaller than the regular jacket. It does need ironing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by two2 ADORABLE and CHIC
LADIES grab this while you can. This is a winner for LLBean. Wow. Great addition to a wardrobe as a fun, cute, pull-it-together item. I'm 5'4 and 120 lbs. and the XS fit great. I bought the white and I love it. Instantly. I love lots of pockets and a cinch waist. Throw this on with a pair of nice trouser jeans and sandals and voila - outfit for many occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anglophile Great as a Blazer
This jacket is a soft, lightweight twill--the perfect weight to wear as a spring or summer blazer. I have it in light blue and stone, and have worn them to work often for over a year. I pin the stand collar back to create lapels. I'm 5'2", 129 lbs. and I wear the Petite Small over a t-shirt. Jackets wash well, look great right out of the dryer, and have great pockets for all my work stuff. I'm getting a third one in white right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LieutenantShopper perfect for SW Florida
Although many reviews say the fabric is thin, for Florida it is perfect.
I bought the lilac colour, it is nicely tailored, the style better than what the local shops are offering. For cool mornings on what will be a hot day, perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BlacksburgGSD Roomy jacket
For reference, I am 105-110 lbs, 5'4". I ordered the jacket in an XS. The jacket shoulders fit well. The sleeves are very roomy, enough so that I could definitely fit a thin or thick winter/fall sweater underneath. I have an athletic build and lack a chest, so the jacket feels a bit 'empty' in the front. I had to pull the taps around the waist tighter, which made them hang down more than on the model. That part is annoying, so I am snip and glue them to be shorter. The sleeves are also very long, but I keep them snapped and roll them up once and it works. I am wash and dryer-dry them to see if it shrinks a bit. Otherwise, probably will also wear a sweater underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SnoopyFanHatesMalls Great for Spring
I didn't want another coat, so I was glad to read reviews stating this was lightweight. I'm 5'2" and 120 lb but have broad shoulders and most petite items are too short-waisted. So I tried a misses small and misses med. I kept the misses med because the small pulled across the back. I ordered heritage stone, so I KNOW it will see the wash/dry cycle often and the med will allow for shrinkage. I may try to add a snap to tighten the cuffs. The current snap is useless in its current location and does nothing to tighten the cuff. I think the cuff is the same width as the sleeve.

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.
