Rated 3 out of 5 by DannoGo4 Not quite there yet
The fabric of this shell is quiet and seems durable. Like the other reviewer, I'm 5'-8" and 162 lb. and the fit is trim but roomy for additional layers.
During a Wisconsin deer hunt this past weekend, I tried to stick my hands in the shell's pockets but the left pocket zipper was sealed shut. A fellow hunter and I attempted to wrestle the zipper open with no luck.
Another problem is that the hood seems too large when it's up. If I wear a brimmed cap, the hood is fine but when I wear a stocking cap, the hood settles well over my face. Many of my alpine Gore-tex shells have an adjustment on the back of the hood, near the nape of the neck, allowing the wearer greater peripheral view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deebar More than expected
The finish is perfect and I just may order another . Comfortable but not for really cold weather but expected that to begin with . I'm 160 and 5-8 and the large fits perfectly and has a bit of room for another layer .
Used it just once atop my horse in 38 degree weather today for about an hour and I was very impressed . Buy it and you'll like it .

This is just a suggestion but LL Bean should consider making this in regular colors-black, blue, Maine Warden Green and so on but in a regular fit. This could be a best selling jacket / parka with the big game liner in the matching colors and in regular fit. Just a thought.
