Rated 4 out of 5 by PearlsMom Sleeves/cuffs too large
I really wanted to like this jacket, I even ordered a large and medium trying to get correct size. I think it runs large and the Medium fit best, but the sleeves were full, a little long, and the elastic "cuffs" were large, and when I shoved my hands into the pockets, the sleeve slid up halfway to my elbows. I knew this would irritate me in the long run, so I am returning them. I wore only a t shirt underneath for testing and it seemed pretty warm for our damp north coast weather. I would probably have kept it if not for the sleeves. M & L in pine on the way back to stock for you ladies waiting for one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DachshundFriend Warm w/ Layers
The jacket arrived just before our cold snap here in Northern California. It actually was below freezing at night!
With a light sweater underneath and a light scarf, I was usually plenty warm. There were only a few times when I was chilly, but I was outside, not moving, for an extended time in the wind, without all of the layers.
I have a heavier weight fleece jacket that is warmer, but it does not pack small at all. I love the light weight and pack-able part of this jacket. This can go on all of my vacations where this could possibly be needed.
The only complaint is that my first choice color (purple) was sold out, but I am enjoying my second choice color (blue pine, a pleasant light teal). The jacket is currently entirely sold out. I also would like to buy one of the men's version for my husband (also sold out).
I would probably get the vest, but the only color they have right now is the color of my jacket, which I like ... but variety is the spice of life!

Rated 4 out of 5 by twilightcampfighter Almost perfect
Great warmth to weight ratio on this jacket. Would you catch me wearing it in negative temps? No way. Temps in the 30s and 40s? Definitely. I am 5'3", 150#, 36DD and the medium petite fits perfectly. I don't feel that the sleeves are too long, they come past my wrists but don't cover any part of my thumb (perfect for cycling, which is one of my main uses for this piece). I do think the sleeves are too wide overall which makes for a less flattering look, and the cuffs should definitely be tighter to keep out the cold. I also wish that the back of the jacket had a bit more length for the aforementioned cycling use. When you look at the price compared to similar items from competitors, this jacket is a good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mntgirl Best Jacket
I bought this jacket to replace one that was very old and heavy. This jacket is so light weight and so warm it has exceeded my expectations! It has been below zero degrees that last few weeks and this jacket has kept me warm and with only a T-shirt and fleece under it. The best part is that when I need to take it off indoors it doesn't weigh a ton and it doesn't take up a lot of space. I would recommend this jacket to everyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ek1229 The sleeves were all around too big.
I wanted to like this jacket and the weight and thinness were great. But the sleeves were way too long and had no way to keep them pushed up a little. But also they were wide and floppy. I was disappointed and that is usually not the case with llbean products (which I have been buying for 40 some years).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanamoves As described
I had the chance to wear this jacket in the Midwest during the last "deep freeze" and it was nice and warm. It is so light weight it doesn't seem possible that it would be so warm with a lightweight layer under it. The sleeves do run long but one can easily turn them under. Much better too long than too short. Good for travel in different weather situations. Great purchase! Glad I got my husband one also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MerzasMom Love this jacket!
I love, love this jacket. Live in New Hampshire and it is wonderful for running errands even in Dec. Walking the dog and traveling will be two other major uses. Ordered the vest also. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wildinjun Very Pleased!
I was hestitant to purchase this jacket until I read the reviews. I needed a jacket would fit in my daypack for short hikes with my doggies since my fleece jackets are way too bulky. The Cayenne color is absolutely beautiful! And the price was even better! The jacket is extra roomy but I am okay with it. This will allow me to dress in layers until I need extra warmth or protection from rain or snow. I was about to order another one in Gunmetal Grey or Plum but they sold out! Bummer for me!! The only negative is that I cannot figure out how to stuff this jacket in its own hand pocket.

This jacket fits well, is comfortable, and looks good.. It is very light weight and did keep me warm on a cold day. Have not tried washing it yet. I look forward to taking it on trips. It will fit easily in a backpack.
