Rated 3 out of 5 by Vermontbeanfan Warm, comfortable but hard to clean
I love the warmth without the bulk. It needed to be washed, I was carful to follow their instructions but it came out with the down in clumps instead of evenly distributed. It was suggested that I rewash it again which I did but same results. Unfortunately the color I love and want is out of stock until June :( I really would like another but im toren since I'm sure it will launder the same and it's just not realistic to have an expensive coat and not be able to clean it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SandraK Bit big in the shoulders, but a great jacket
I'm 5'3" and about 165 lbs, so I ordered the petite in a L, as I wanted to make sure it fit around my hips. It fit well in the hips, but was a tad too big in the shoulders. However, if I were to order a M, it would be too small in the hip area.
No big deal, I still kept the jacket, and it's kept me warm during some cold snaps up here in Canada. Love the red color that I ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScotiaParisCanucks Soooo light, you're amazed at how WARM you are!!
Love, love, this jacket!! If I could afford one in every colour, I would do it! Usually, I order XL for LL Bean items and sometimes they are too big for me (even though I end up keeping them). I ordered an XL in this and everything fits great - still roomy but doesn't look like I'm swimming in it!! The sleeves are nice and long (and on the snug side so you won't get those terrible winds blowing up your arms if you happen to be gloveless and wearing a T-shirt underneath - which by the way, you can in this coat)! The molten red colour is beautiful (as are all the colours). The design of the hood is superb!! You can bundle right up in this, if you want to! I love LLBean products!! : )

Rated 5 out of 5 by laniebear8 Wonderful lightweight jacket
You need to get some more of these in stock! I came back to get another in a different color alas they are sold out DARN!! At first I was afraid it would not be warm enough but learned it is the perfect weight when just chilly and when it's really cold, as a layer under a longer sweater or a heavier jacket. It is warmth without a lot of weight or bulk and that is perfect for me. I absolutely love the feel of the material and hope you get some more in soon. Have received lots of compliments too on the color and the style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mombo6 Great style - not warm enough
I ordered this hooded down coat hoping for a warmer coat than the one I am currently wearing. I thought the 850 down would be better but, alas, it is not. They need to put way more down into the coat for our MI winters! I ordered a medium (my usual size) but after trying it on, would have liked a large for more shoulder room as the coat is quite fitted. I loved the plum color and the modern styling with the smaller baffles. Sadly returned it. Please keep making coats with hoods, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SatoriSun love this jacket: great fit, warm, very light
I am 5 feet tall and approximately 110 lbs. Ordered Petite Small in Molten Red. Product arrived in a timely manner and exactly as described in catalog. Fit was excellent. The first day I wore it the temperature was 4 degrees with light snow and I wore it with a mid-weight fleece jacket and a long-sleeve shirt: stayed comfortably warm with it. The second day I wore the jacket, the temperature was 15 degrees and dry - wore it with a cashmere sweater & a long-sleeve shirt; also stayed very warm. I did not feel trapped even with layers underneath. What I haven't tried as of yet is wearing the jacket in heavy snow to test if it does stay dry. Over all - I love the jacket! The color is beautiful (have received many compliments about the color). It is very light and surprisingly warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovethebeanscene Amazing Jacket
This jacket is simply amazing. It is very lightweight so you think it could not possibly be warm enough. IT IS!! I don't know how such a thin and lightweight jacket can be so warm but it does the job. The colors are beautiful too. I received the purple and loved it so much that I went back and ordered the plum wine also. I ordered my usual LL Bean size and it fits. It is cut a little closer to the body but I can still get a sweater under it even though I don't really need it. Thank you LL Bean for a really great jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JackieJo Perfect jacket for "warmer" winter days
I was looking for a jacket which I could wear during the winter when the temperature is maybe in the 40s and is causal as well. My husband had something similar to this jacket and so when we stopped at the Flagship shore on our way up to Bar Harbor we came across this jacket. It was "me" as my husband would say, was warm and had the hood, which was a plus. I selected the purple color to match other winter gear I have. It has a pocket inside so you can fold it up into the pocket and transport it easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by aLongTimeCustomer Cut smaller than other jackets
I really wanted a lightweight down jacket with a hood. I usually wear an XL petite so I ordered one when they first came out. It was too snug in the hips, so I returned it. My husband bought me the jacket in a regular without the hood for Christmas and it fit fine. So I ordered a hooded XL in regular and just got it today and it was too snug. With both jackets in hand I measured them and found the hooded jacket is an inch smaller in the hips - the bust is the same size on both - the hooded jacket sleeves are about a 1/2 inch shorter.
