Rated 4 out of 5 by MotownReviewer Lots of good features
Generally, I'm pretty happy with this jacket and have gotten a number of compliments on it. The weight is a little heavy for the warmest days but it is very comfortable. I especially like the sleeve lining as all cotton tends to grab with long-sleeve shirts. I like all of the pockets, although the outside zipped one is a bit of an affectation. (That said, it is handy for a cell phone.) I'm happy to have this jacket option as the previous version with "safari style" really raised my eyebrows. (Perhaps I'm being too politically correct, but I really thought the whole "Bwana" thing went out years ago.) My biggest complaint is that the sleeves are way long and the way the stitching has been handled around the cuffs and buttons makes it virtually impossible to alter. But all in all, I'm good with it. I have the khaki version and will likely get the olive gray. Looks equally good with tropic weight trousers, chinos, and jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuckyGSP Arrived as Advertized
I have only recently received this travel jacket however it is just what was expected, lightweight for Mid-Texas winters and will go very nicely with jeans and boots. Seems to not wrinkle if kept on hanger.
Overall, very pleased and would recommend to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by notllbeantype Surprisingly really great!
I didn't see picture clearly & thus didn't notice details like the Zipper on outside pocket. When I took it out of packaging I thought it was extremely nerdy & pretentious. However, when He tried it on, it looked great and just enough "unusual". Material, entire Jacket very well made-- as expected from LL Bean. I thought the color was as pictured and this Jacket could go with everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ipswichtraveler Perfect jacket for travel
The Easy Care Travel Blazer is the perfect jacket for travel--especially for international travel and other extended trips. It has three pockets on the outside of the blazer and two pockets on the inside. The two inside pockets can be secured for especially important items--such as passport, flight itinerary, boarding passes, foreign currency, and U.S. currency. It can help you stay organized. The blazer is well designed and comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. It's the right weight for a range of climates and temperatures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by backpacker Just what I wanted
The blazer came quite wrinkled. A quick trip to the cleaners for a pressing job and it came out in excellent condition. Fits like a glove. Looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ocelot8 Perfect Fit and Well Made
Blazer fit perfectly for a 42 reg. Well made and designed for travelers. The blazer is medium weight and usable in all but the hottest and coldest weather. I looked at other unstructured travel blazers and this was by far the best for quality and price. Would like to see it in navy. Very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MuiscDoc 14 days in Europe
Just returned from 2 weeks in Europe with the forerunner of this blazer as the only Jacket. It stood the packing and unpacking well and looked good as a casual garment or in the concert halls of Vienna with a dress shirt and tie. This newer version, which I purchased upon return has more zippered pockets both inside and out and is of a heavier weight cotton. Some of the interior zippered pocket may be a good deterrent to pick -pockets. Tailoring is much nicer than the original version. I look forward to traveling with this one also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nuff coat
the travel blazer way too heavy for summer wear in Italy--it would be a good hunting coat--made out of heavy canvas material--was also a bit on the 'small' size as far as my usual --I ordered a 46 and it fit me more like a 44--the shoulders are way too narrow--with a few straps it would make a great straight jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PCPC77 NICE FIT / NEARLY WRINKLE -FREE
Purchased for my husband this jacket has a nice fit and all-weather weight.
Unpacks nearly wrinkle-free. Wrinkles fall out overnight on the hanger. Equally acceptable as a casual jacket or worn with a tie.
