Rated 5 out of 5 by Zeke099 Good Buy
This is a good looking jacket for use during fall and spring. It provides more warmth than a windbreaker, but isn't too heavy for days when temperatures are moderate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Scotnik Great Look, but a Bit Snug
I love the styling and detail of this jacket. It is also a great intermediate layer of outerwear for those chilly spring and fall days. Nevertheless, despite ordering a XXL, the armpits are a bit snug. This is only a problem in getting the jacket on. It does not "feel" overly tight while wearing it.
(Hey, I'm not all that fat, but I suspect that as I lose weight, this handsome jacket will be easier to don. Perhaps that is L.L. Bean's goal. They are sly like that.)

Just right for fall/spring, weight,lining, lots of heavy brass zipper pockets goes along with the rugged stitching design.Had to wait a couple weeks for this color but well worth it. LLBean is the best!

The item was extremely small for XXL. I have XL sized jackets that fit better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TMorso Good jacket, funny sizing
Love the jacket - it's perfect for that intermediate time between fall and winter. It's comfortable and warm, but my only complaint would be it fits a little funny - it's a large but still seems too big (and I wear a large!). That's not really anyone's fault, but in a perfect world the jacket would be cut just slightly slimmer (although I suppose it's designed to wear a sweater underneath, too).

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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.
