Rated 4 out of 5 by NYBeanQueen Comfortable, good fit and very packable.
I like this jacket alot. It is light weight but still warm. I have another one in a smaller size that I wear when the weather is warmer but I got a size larger to wear a fleece under it. I like the hood for rainey weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anadyr Better than I expected
This is a really awesome jacket. It is very light and yet much warmer than I had anticipated. Whatever was said in the description was exactly correct.
I will say one thing in general about LLBean clothing for women: The colors are often too "girlie". If we are off hiking in the wilderness, we don't need to look as if we were mall-hopping. I realize this is just a personal preference. My first choice was to get the mens' hoodie in kelp, but that was back-ordered until June!
However, I really do like the jacket..it does what it claims to do and is very comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by farmgrandma Poor fit and defective zipper
I have had very good luck with purchases from LLBean but this was a disappointment. First, the zipper split as I was starting to zip it. Secondly, the jacket was a poor fit, rather snug through the middle. I also felt the fabric was not very nice--sort of flimsy and dull. I ordered the reversible quilted fitness jacket instead and it was perfect. I think LLBean skimped on the zipper and fabric on this one. The lady I talked to on live chat was very helpful and I will keep ordering from them.

I found the sizing was smaller than expected. Would have liked more room in it. Okay though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrystalM Warm and toasty
Living in the south we don't have much cold weather, but I ordered this jacket for our March visit to NYC. With average temps in the 30s with very windy conditions, I was very warm and toasty with just this jacket, a sweatshirt and tank underneath. Only wish I'd had pants like these ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by hugeBeanwardrobe I like this jacket.
I bought the medium size (my usual size) and it was a bit snug on me. I returned it and bought the large. I can wear it with a sweater under the large.
I like wearing this jacket very much. It is so lightweight but it is warm enough right now in 20 to 30 degree days. I am glad I bought the one with the hood. I have used the hood and it repels rain and kept my head warm even in strong wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinProf Great all around
This is a great light-weight jacket that is also warm. I am currently wearing it with temps in the low 30's with a fitness weight fleece cardigan underneath and still comfortable. The fit is trim, not bulky. It will be good for travel as well as everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lifetimellbeaner Great jacket, love the color
I got an Ascent Packaway Jacket last fall in Cayenne. Loved it so much that I could not resist getting another in Blue Pine in the hooded version. These jackets are surprisingly warm. I thought they'd be fall and spring jackets but have been wearing them right through this cold Maine winter except on sub-zero days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BarbMcD Awesome Jacket
I love this lightweight jacket with the hood! I ordered the green one (a bit darker than shown) but the color is great! Nice Spring color. Fits true to size. At first I ordered this same jacket without the hood in blue - did not like the blue, it was more of a teal. After trying on both styles of jackets, I'm very happy I got the one with the hood. Weights nothing.... I will use this jacket for when I travel and have to pack since it folds up to nothing.

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!
