Rated 4 out of 5 by WhitWhit Very nice!
I can not attest to the warmth at this time since I purchased at the end of summer for the upcoming cold seasons.
The size guide worked well for me. I am 5' 2" and 120# and purchased petite small in Barberry. The fit is lovely and feminine. I love that it is not bulky and can fit into a pouch if needed. It is a beautiful color.
The only reason I'm looking forward to the cold is so I can use my new jacket.
Only 4 stars since I haven't tested the warmth yet in a cold season. Although my body heat does increase just when trying it on!

I have the pull over, vest, jacket and now the hooded jacket. These are great; they cut the wind, very light weight and nice looking. I wear almost exclusively during Fall, Spring. In the Winter I will wear when going shopping as it keeps me warm in the car but not too warm shopping but light enough to stuff in my bag or just carry if I get too warm. Just wish L.L. Bean would make these in little kid sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MMacG Different colors, please!
I love this jacket. It's so lightweight and comfortable, it's never too warm or bulky which is something that many other manufacturers are missing in their jackets. My one and only complaint is that most of Bean's color options for women are lacking. Not everyone looks good in or likes jewel tones! A plain old red or forest green would be phenomenal and would lead me to buy even more than I already own. I often settle on black because it's the only color option I can stand. Enough pinks purples and teals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovenature great jacket for layering!
I really like this jacket! It is just what I was looking for for an outer layer when it starts to get chilly in the mountains. I wear a 12-14 in street clothes and bought an XL in this so that I can put it over a fleece jacket. Perfect! i like the price as well as it is much lower than competitors at the same quality. I would love it if Bean would match the zippers to the jacket color but maybe that would be more expensive to manufacture. It suits my needs for hiking in cooler temperatures so that's ok!

Rated 3 out of 5 by tessiejj Lightweight, but not best quality
I bought this jacket when it was first on sale and some of the seams have started to come apart a little, otherwise it is great on a rainy day. Once I wore them in heavy rain with a backpack and the water went right through where it pooled next to the backpack on my shoulders, so I recommend something more waterproof for really rainy conditions with a bag on shoulders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sweetpea43 Great jacket!
Bought this jacket for a light layer of warmth when hiking the high country. It provides an interior pocket that some of the higher priced brands did not. Would love to have the ability to cinch down the hood, but not having that is a small compensation for such a light and warm layer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BrielleC123 Very warm but wish it was longer
This jacket is very warm but I wish it was longer. I wish there was a long Prima Loft jacket that went to mid thigh. That would be perfect for Vermont!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PennsylvaniaGirl Terrific lightweight and warm jacket!
Wow, what a great jacket. I bought the XS Petite (I am 5', 115lbs) and it fits perfectly and the sleeve length is just right. We are having an incredibly windy day in Brisbane, Australia, and I wore my PrimaLoft Packaway Jacket and I didn't feel a thing! I even wore the hood and it is the most snug fit you could want and will definitely keep out more than just wind. I was so pleased with fit of this jacket and how warm I was that I ordered a second jacket in a different color. The description is correct - this jacket is a great alternative to fleece because it is so compact and will pack away easily which means it will travel well. Even though the jacket is lightweight it is so warm, and it is definitely wind-resistant. The zippers are of good quality, the pockets are a great depth, and there is even an interior zip pocket which will be great for keys or a passport. Because this jacket is so lightweight it is more flattering than a fleece. I will be taking this jacket in my carry-on when I go to Europe later this year in winter. For now I am wearing this jacket as my winter coat in our chilly and windy Brisbane winter. Thank you, LLBean, for a great product! I highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JFulton6 Not what I was expecting
A little underwhelmed for the price. Jacket is good quality and waterproof. If given the chance definitely would not buy again, since I bough it thinking it would be good for winter,as it says warmer to -15, but I don't think that it would be good for anything below 45.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CattM Good Jacket
Based on the picture, I thought this jacket was going to be super unflattering but the jacket fits a lot better than I thought it would! It was really static-y when I first got it but that went away after a week. Good jacket!
