Rated 4 out of 5áby aacguy Great jacket, with a caution
I love the style and function of this jacket - perfect for the casual look of pairing with jeans on an autumn day. The lining of the arms is a much appreciated feature, making it easy to slip on and off. Haven't used it in colder weather (< 55 F), so can't speak to warmth.
The caution is the sizing. I wear a size 42 and found the Large a close fit across the shoulders. I liked that, as it gives a nice, trim look for me. But people should be aware this jacket is cut a bit on the trim side and it won't allow for heavy layering underneath it. The length seems standard.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MikeInCincinnati Fantastic Jacket
I bought the Pine Ridge in orange, and I have to say it is a super-stylish jacket. It turns heads and gets very enthusiastic compliments. People have told me that they were going to steal it from me.
Before I bought the jacket I read the online reviews. One reviewer had commented on the fact that it is sized large and has no shape to it. I agree with this to some degree. I bought a medium and it felt so loose that I was going to have it tailored a bit. However, I thought I should wash it first to see whether it shrunk --- I assumed it would shrink at least a bit because it is cotton. I was super-pleased with the fit after I washed it. The shoulders fit perfectly after washing. Also, the cuffs were super, super loose before I washed it. After I washed it the cuffs are much better. However, they are still too loose. As a result I am going to add some Velcro next to the snaps so that I can tighten the cuff further. I would strongly suggest that LL Bean add a 3rd snap so that you can tighten the cuffs further if you want to.
It was also very loose around the waist. After washing it is now very snug and I'm pleased with the fit, and I no longer feel that I will have to get it tailored.
In sum, I would recommend this jacket very highly to anyone who wants a very stylish coat that is great for Fall and Spring, and that can handle layers underneath. If it at first feels too loose, I suggest washing and drying it before you return it --- that very well could solve the problem.

Ordered a second Pine Ridge Jacket in Briar, first was Dark Loden. Perfect jacket for Fall, early Winter and Spring. It is wind (the inner fleece helps) and rain resistant. The zip pockets are ideal for preventing your keys, money and cell phone from falling out.

Excellent Customer Service!!! I spotted this item on the website, but there was a note stating not available till Jan something. I called customer service to see if this was true and she stated it was. She said to "wait a minute' and she would check with one of the stores to see if they had one. A few minutes later a gentleman came on the line and stated they had one they could send out, so I gave the info and sure enough it came in a few days.
The jacket looks and fits fine. I cannot wait for cooler weather to wear it. I know it is coming soon.

Rated 5 out of 5áby French02chris BEST Jacket for me......
I usually buy clothes on sale (like most of people)...but for this jacket, I paid full price and did not mind at all...
I love it, and it fits me perfectly.
I am 5"11 and I have a medium built frame ( I wear size Medium for Tshirts)...Therefore, I bought my jacket in Medium.
It comes to about my hips, and the length of the arms are perfect for me.
However, just like pants, a jacket is something that you do have to try before buying it, as all jackets ( just like pants) have different cut.
I also got caught in the rain ( in Maine), and this jacket did hold up very well in the rain!!
Anyways, for me, this is the best jacket ever ( I am actually going back to LLBean this coming Sunday, and will buy another one in a different color)
ps: I bought the "green" one!!!

Rated 2 out of 5áby jmsjei Not LLBean quality
Although the stitching on the outside was neat, the zipper jammed with the facing due to erratic stitching........on the FIRST attempt!
I have been wearing LLBean merchandise for a very long time and was disappointed to see the shoddy quality.

Rated 3 out of 5áby zewerw it's slim cut
sizing is off from normal LLBean products, normally when I order an X-Large standard cut I have no problem with sizing, this jacket is cut slim and doesn't say so in the description, so it will fit you if you don't have much of a gut... I have an average size gut I'd say, not too prominent and it was way too tight in the mid-section. if I were to order up a size everything else would be too big. Other than that, material seemed sturdy, I loved the design of it and that it was somewhat water resistant... I had plans to wax it so I could wear it as a motorcycle jacket, but had to send it back...
