Rated 5 out of 5 by coldweatherperson Great lightweight warmth
This is my second such jacket (first one without hood). Very light, very warm, slips on and off easily, and also easy to put on a heavier layer over this jacket. Good, easy to use pockets. I even wear it around the house on cold mornings. I love cold weather, but Not being cold!

Fitted across chest which is reason for only 4 stars. Ordered men's medium. Great fit. Jacket very warm. Great for packing.

This coat is very nice looking. It feels like it would be warm without any bulk at all, it's very thin.
The body is very fitted. This is fine, I just ordered a size up. The sleeves are huge (beginning at the shoulder) baggy, and very long.
I ordered a M and L PETITE and the arms on both sizes hung down way past my fingertips.
I buy all of my coats at LL Bean, because I can get petite sizes. But this year I've tried about 5 different coat styles and have had to return all of them because they did not fit right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IHEARTCAMP My only layer!
It's January/ February in Maine and this is the only Jacket I'm wearing. I am not big on puffy winter jackets and this is thin ( I was surprised at how thin when it arrived), as to be worn as a layer. However it's the only outer layer I have worn since purchasing it! The fit is true to size, light weight and very comfortable. This jacket moves like its a sweater, yet keeps me dry. LOVE IT! I am sure it will be my all seasons jacket, from skiing to cooler rainy days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pixalu It's MAGIC!
I used to have a really great jacket similar to this made by Isis. I lost it one day and was heartbroken. When I saw this in LLBean, I thought I would give it a try as a replacement. I may have worn this every day since receiving a few weeks ago. It is so lightweight and thin, yet very warm. I live in Seattle. I have worn it in temps with a wool sweater down to about 32 degrees. It is pretty water resistant too for most Seattle drizzly rain days. I probably wouldn't want to wear it in a heavy downpour because it is not terribly long, but it is great for light rain. It is also very wind proof. Cold winds do not seem to penetrate. I love this jacket. It's awesome. I may buy another in a color, I like it so well. I will be bringing on my business trip to China next week too. It packs down so light and small. It's perfect for travel.
I'm 5'5", and wear a size 8 dress. I ordered a Misses Med in the black. It fits great. Not too loose, not too snug with a medium weight wool sweater underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 So light weight!
Love the color, it's so light weight, will be easy to pack. It's a teeny bit tight at hips when zipped...I'm now dieting!!! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend! Oh, it's also warm!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DMDJunky Great jacket; disappointing fit
I love the color, material/insulation and hooded style; however, it was too snug in an XL to wear over anything more than a tshirt. I generally wear an XL, so this year's redesign seems to have made it more of a jacket for active people who are going skiing or hiking, not average use around town. It doesn't come in women's sizes; I would have reordered that if it had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBshopper100 Great fit, light, comfortable and functional
I just received this jacket and love it. I'm an extra small and it fits true to size and very well. I don't like bulkie clothes. The fit is perfect and stylish. I chose ruby coral and although the color appears lighter than shown it is very nice. I golf in the winter and feel it will give the warmth needed without the bulk. I'm glad you make this jacket with a hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by icecreamuyell LOVE IT!
This jacket is nothing short of awesome! It is light weight and warm, a wonderful combo.. I live in NH and am a mail carrier, I ordered a large, which is normal for me and have plenty of room to wear a heavy sweatshirt under it, however hardly needed. Went snowshoeing with a t shirt and fleece under this coat in 15 degree weather and I was very warm. I will definitely be buying another in the future and would encourage friends to do so also.. Love .... love ..... love it :)

Exactly what I wanted for my trip to Iceland-fits well with style and femininity-easily packed-and will be useful throughout my summer European travels-extremely versatile. Bravo L.L.Bean
