Rated 2 out of 5 by WestieNJ Not quite right
I'm a big fan of softshell jackets. I own 2 other LL Bean softshells and wear them all the time. This one, however, is not a keeper. It is a very thin material that would probably not be suitable for temperatures much below 60 degrees. Despite ordering a petite, the sleeves were too long and the pockets were placed very low - I could not comfortably put my hands in the pocket without leaning forward. Despite having gotten this jacket at a very good price during the 2-a-day daily deal, this will be returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanGirl48 I'm happy with it...
Yes - I'll agree - - the zipper is a pain, but all double-zippers are - this one more because the coat is a longer length. Overall, though the coat is wonderful. I like the longer length, sleeves are nice and long which is never the case...I'm very happy with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 24609lady HOODED...Longer length
When this came up on the markdown, I wanted it!! With reviews
changed my mind because I really don't like zippers to begin with and others already found problems. Just wish LLB would use snaps or buttons to help. So hard to find this length also.

THIS WAS A VERY COMFORTABLE COAT BECAUSE OF THE STRETCH MATERIAL. I ALSO REALLY LIKE THE STYLING. THE ZIPPER WAS DIFFICULT FROM THE BEGINNING AND AFTER VERY LITTLE USE, IT GOT STUCK AND NO AMOUNT OF WORK HAS BEEN ABLE TO FIX IT.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sonomawinetaster should have been made with a lining
This is a very lightweight jacket, most suitable for a windbreaker. I have not been able to wear it for most of my dog-walking in the fall (50 degree temperatures). The fabric is more stretchy than most lycra products, which can be comfortable. However, the biggest problem is that there is no inside lining to make it easy to put on and pull off. The grippy fabric drags across other clothes and needs adjustment when it's on to lie well on your body. I am only using it for short durations outside to top off any outfit. Not very functional.

I absolutely love this jacket. I've been wanting one for quite some time & finally purchased one for my Birthday! When I received the jacket, I noticed the left inside pocket wasn't sewn completely to the jacket. I notified LLBean regarding the defect & immediately the pleasant & efficient customer service representative re-ordered me a new one. This jacket is fabulous for running errands in the winter, especially when jumping in & out of one's car. I detest the bulkiness of heavy coats when driving, etc., but with this jacket, I can easily & comfortably wear only a long-sleeve shirt & I'm warm! I ordered this jacket in a Petite Large in Black & it fits perfectly. The length covers one's bum & looks great dressed up or down. Thank you LLBean for a wonderful product & for your efficient handling of my order. You've given me a very happy birthday & I will continue to be a dedicated customer of LLBean. Happy Holidays & Thank You Again!

Shopped locally and ordered on-line quite a few lightweight jackets and coats for a long trip to Europe in Sept-Oct, where it can be rainy. I liked everything about the coat: style, fit, non-crackly, etc.
HOWEVER, wore it in a very light rain and the shoulders soaked through and made it -- and me -- cold & clammy. Returning it, as wanted something to keep me dry. Oh yes, sleeves too long in a petite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PAyankee Great coat
I bought this the minute I saw it in the catalogue. Loved the slate blue and that it was slim and lightweight and also that it came with a hood. I was surprised at how lightweight it is, but it is surprisingly warm so is perfect so far for fall and probably early winter.
Doesn't wrinkle, would be perfect for travel. Sleeves are long which is great for me but others might not want. Slim through body and arms and perfect over tunic or longer tops. Might not be best for large-busted, heavier figures or if you have really heavy arms or want to wear this over bulky sweaters.
