Rated 5 out of 5 by HetEngeltje Dusk Blue has a nice sheen + no black feathers.
I absolutely adored this coat, however, I decided to buy another one in a more discrete color, as I was wearing it everywhere and red simply drew too much attention.
Here's a tip; zip your coat up and turn it inside out before you roll it into the stowaway pocket. It takes seconds, instead of fumbling around trying to stuff it in.
I've worn this through and through below 0 degrees Fahrenheit to walk in daylight and dark, and it's kept me warm. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who is skiing, but it's perfect for hiking!

Rated 3 out of 5 by GerriR Not a Warm Jacket
I was a little nervous about the couple of reviews that said the jacket wasn't as warm as advertised, but my daughter liked the look of the jacket, so we bought it. However, it doesn't keep her warm at 25 degrees, much less when it's colder. So she is using it just for those days when it's well above freezing. Maybe if it came with a liner, it would be warmer?

I purchased this jacket a couple of months ago, I was so skeptical when I opened the bag and saw this small jacket, I thought there is no way this is going to keep me warm in this Michigan winters, so I put it on with layers, well half way through our walk I had the hood down, unzip. This jacket will keep you warm and it is very light. Oh and by the way it was 18 degrees and windy.
We walk our Samoyed dogs every day rain,snow or sunny days at our local park this jacket keeps me very warm. I also walk to keep up with my daily steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OneandTwins Great Jacket!
I purchased this jacket with gift cards from several family members right after Christmas. I have worn it non-stop since it arrived including during the Snowzilla storm to hit the DC area. This jacket had kept me warm and dry while shoveling in the snow and waiting at the bus stop in a light drizzle. While shoveling (in blizzard conditions) I only wore a silk top and was warm and toasty. The jacket is so lightweight it has made movement a breeze, plus with the hood, no snow has fallen down my back. You do need to purchase this jacket to fit and not too large as the way it keeps you warm is by trapping in your body heat. If you buy too big your heat will escape out the openings.
I am 5ft 5 inches, weigh 140 lbs and the medium fit perfectly (although I sometimes wish the sleeves were just a bit longer)

Purchased this jacket over a month ago and LOVE IT! Warmest jacket I've ever had without the bulk. Feels like you are not wearing one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HikeADK Amazingly warm winter coat
I have used this coat on backcountry hikes - in rain, wind and snow and it has kept me completely warm. Good for layering or on its own, this is a must buy for any sort of winter activity!

Rated 5 out of 5 by camsprite Best winter jacket ever
Pulling this slim, almost weightless item out of its package, I thought, no way will this keep me warm through a Maine winter. In fact, though, it's incredibly warm--even for someone like me, who tends to be cold--and it's easy to wear over another warming layer if you want to be extra-sure. I love how light and unbulky the jacket is and how smoothly it slips on over a sweater. I have a very small frame that is sometimes hard to fit, but the XS petite fits like a dream. Wonderful hood, too, that doesn't dig into your neck or chin when you run the zipper all the way up. Tempted to buy another in a different color!

I absolutely love, love, love this down jacket. It is light yet keeps me warm during stormy weather in the 20's. I ordered the bright green and have received many compliments just about everywhere I go. Fit is true to size, lots of extra pockets inside. Well done, LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuincyGirl90277 Kept Me Warm & Dry
My mom sent this jacket out to me for a trip to Denver for a football game. Under it I had many layers and the jacket itself kept me well insulated. Just this past week I wore it here in California on a rare cold and rainy night and I was quite surprised at how dry it kept me as well as how quickly the jacket dried. Super impressed. I'm a little concerned about some thread pulls on the sleeves; when the threads pull out, the sleeves become a whole piece of fabric instead of the 'quilted' look. There were several loose threads that I'll cut from now on. But overall, the performance of this jacket has been exemplary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clhigh29 Very light and warm
I don't know about those other reviewers saying this jacket isn't warm. I live in a Boston suburb and like to walk in the evening. I've been doing so lately in 30-40 degree weather with wind, and nothing gets through this jacket. I wear a hooded sweatshirt and am as warm as can be. It's so soft and light weight, and I'm very impressed and trust the quality. In fact, the only place I'm cold in the evening are my legs, so I bought the same jacket in the mid-length.
