Rated 4 out of 5 by ConnecticutSenior Desire some changes
The coat is light in weight and warm - good insulation. Easy to put on.
The zipper was a problem - lining from side opposite to the storm flap would get stuck in zipper. My inventive wife sewed a seam parallel to zipper that secured the lining in place and this has prevented the lining-in-the zipper issue.
Please consider this simple change to this jacket and, perhaps, also consider a using larger gage zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teddymeister A Great Lightweight Functional Warm Coat
This is a great versatile coat. I intentionally bought one size larger to accommodate layering and that was a good decision. It is amazingly comfortable, light and warm. It fits well over a vest. And, for the first time in years, I have a coat that fits well over a sports jacket! Even though the hood is not insulated, it's ok when wearing a hat, blocking out the wind. I also like how the hood can be stowed away in the collar, adding to its lightweightedness. It's a perfect raincoat windbreaker. The water beads off like off a duck's back. All in all, it's a plain, lightweight, functional but stylish coat. The one disadvantage is that there is no option to button the coat. It can only be zippered closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by palomasail Warm coat, looks good
I purchased this for my teenage son. He likes it; it's more than warm enough for him even on the coldest days (single digits).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Knittingqueen A very nice and warm coat
My husband had to replace his trusty old cold-weather work jacket this year. We bought this one. He is very happy with the look and how warm it keeps him. His only complaint is the zipper which tends to have a mind of it's own (this is the reason for four stars instead of 5). The biggest challenge with it is that it tends to snag the fabric as you pull it up.
Aside from this it's been a great jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clothesguru Comfortable and nice looking
I purchased this coat for my husband as a Christmas gift. He has been wearing a short red-ish fleece for cold weather for everyday for a number of years but it didn't look very stylish. His good wool overcoat is a little too heavy to wear all of the time. He loved this new all-weather coat. It is lightweight and it keeps him nice and warm -- plus, it covers him through his hips, which the old coat didn't. It even looks smart enough to wear to church and musical events. I love it and so does he!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HSPR Perfect everyday winter coat
This coat is one of the most comfortable I have ever worn. As advertised, it is light but warm and suited for all but extreme winter weather. Especially appreciated is how thin the material is, so that it is well-suited for everyday wear, driving, air travel, and errands. It is also better-looking than pictured (the one I wear is black), and while it could use an additional pocket on the inside, it works quite well as is with three outer zip pockets and one inner zip pocket. In the end I am especially pleased with its weightlessness, so that one is barely aware it is on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ibknittin AAll-Weather Commuter Coat
I ordered this to replace the ratty old coat I bought for my husband 20 years ago (fom LL Bean,and it's still serviceable). Unfortunately, i was too long for our purposes. Great coat for commuters, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greenfinder Much improved from previous version
Almost perfect. Longer length covers sport jackets. A new 2-way zipper is a biggie for those who want to button up while driving.
Looks good enough for a formal winter rain/snow coat, yet warm.
The older version had an insulated hood, a important miss on this new model. Still, a terrific, light winter stormcoat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ramapo Can be improved
I commute five hours a day by train. Great coat for commuting, but could use breast pockets, like on a P-Coat. And the hood needs to be bumped up to a insulated hood. But i like the pull ties on this hood. The breast outside pocket is great but should be lower down to stay out of the way of my LL Bean carry bag strap. Lastly, the fabric style could be more exciting. But real light, breathes and is warm. Good zippers , too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Larrypop Terrible zipper, can't use coat as is.
This coat seemed to be just what I wanted, light weight, warm, longer but not too long. BUT the zipper is impossible. It is not just hard to engage, it is almost impossible.I have not been able to use the coat but once. Who needs a small, hard to see or feel, double ended zipper anyway. I intend to have a tailor replace the zipper with a larger, easy to use, single ended zipper.
