Rated 5 out of 5 by RinaGina Comfortable, warm, and flattering (but runs large)
As soon as I put this on, I felt like it was one of the most lightweight, comfortable winter jackets I had ever worn! The only issue is that you definitely need to order a size down. I never wear anything below a medium, and the small fits me with enough room for a warm sweater beneath. Even being a small, the sleeves are comfortably long. I used to find LLBean sleeves to be too short for me, even in a medium! Sometimes I'd end up ordering a large (in which I would be swimming in the torso) just to avoid the skimpy sleeves making my arms look like dangling monkey arms! Fortunately, LLBean seems to have changed their cut. But, truly, this is a lovely, stylish jacket, with a flattering, girlish fit to the waist area and a comfortable feel overall. I highly recommend it. Just order a size down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by toto17 not up to standard
upon opening the package I found a lightweight jacket with almost no down in the layers. the closures were cheap and the jacket was of inferior quality. I was looking for a sturdy winter jacket for everyday use and this did not fit the bill.

Love the color (red) and the style, just wish it was a little heavier.

This is the best jacket I've ever owned. And living in Upstare NY my whole life, I know all about the perfect jacket for winter. This is light-weight, yet warm. And it's not restricting, especially driving your car. Love it! I highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mwcait24 Light, comfortable, and warm
I bought this jacket a few weeks ago and have worn in several times on days when the temp is anywhere from 0-25 degrees. The coat is very warm, despite being very light. It seems to run a bit big. I tried on a few other LL Bean coats in size medium but this one fit me in a size small. I am 5' 10", 150 lbs for reference. On exceptionally cold mornings, I add a layer underneath like a light fleece or sweater and am very comfortable. The hood helps keep your head toasty warm on windy days. My only cons about this coat are: (1) It does not zip up far enough to cover your neck whatsoever. Plan on wearing a layer underneath that covers your neck and/or a scarf of some sort. There is literally no neck coverage. (2) The sleeves are a bit shorter than I would like. At my height, it is difficult to find shirts/jackets with long enough sleeves and this jacket is no exception. Despite this, I still really like this jacket. It blocks wind and cold weather VERY well. It is warmer than the jacket I snowboard in and has been a life saver on those cold mornings waiting for the bus to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by paticular warm, comfortable and light weight down
This jacket is the best overall weather down coat I have ever worn.
It is ultra light weight. it is super warm and really pretty.This jacket and its longer version replaced several coats in wardrobe. The reverse zipper is great for car and travel. I was surprized how great it was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OutdoorFunFamilyGA The Perfect Winter Coat
I was looking for a warm, light weight, slightly dressy parka and I can happily say that I have successfully found it. I just can not get over how light and airy it feels and how warm the coat keeps me on 21 to -5 degree days. I would definitely recommend this product!
I would normally order a medium although I periodically wear heavy wool sweaters in the winter so I went with a large to accommodate the bulk. I could have probably gotten away with the medium but wanted to be comfortable. Thank you LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongBeanshopper Perfect fit, looks neat
Jacket is great for cold days in North Florida and very warm with a sweater underneath. It is just right for shopping and grocery runs. I think it will be my "go to" jacket. With so many reviews of items complaining about sleeve length, the sleeves are a perfect length for me on this coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Izzygirl18 Good Fit, lightweight, grey great color
I have read many reviews and the ones that have helped me most gave specifics as to the purchaser's body physique. I am 5'5', 123 lbs, have a thin torso and have an athletic build. I also have broad shoulders and longish arms. The small fits just fine and I can put a light or heavier layer underneath and still be comfortable. The jacket is more form fitting than other Bean products which I was pleased with. The grey is a great color and the toggles are cute and make this jacket a bit more trendy and I like the double zipper and the hood fits nicely. The only reason it did not get 5 stars is that the puff material is thinner than I expected, and most important the pockets outside and inside have no zipper ( bad move). However, I like it enough to keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janhanna How can this be so warm?
One would think that there is NO WAY this thing is as warm as it is. It's so light and also roomy.
I've worn it in 20* degree weather, with a Tshirt and light sweater and it kept my core very warm. I love that it's not so bulky. I would definitely recommend this!
