Rated 5 out of 5 by buckscountymama Love this jacket
I wanted this jacket last year but didn't get around to buying it. I just got it a few weeks ago and have worn it non stop since. I hate driving with a coat on and usually wear a down vest. The problem with that is when you do need to get out of the car, your arms get cold. This jacket is so lightweight, that it's comfortable when driving. I love that the sleeves are nice and long and the jacket is not tight across the chest or back when driving. I chose the gunmetal grey and think it's a beautiful color. It's a dark grey with some blue in it. For reference I am a size 14 and very busty. I purchased a size large and it fits perfect with a light to medium weight sweater underneath. It's not a jacket to wear when it's really cold out and if you will be outdoors for an extended period of time. I've worn in in 30 degree weather so far, going in and out of the car and it's great. I don't find that it sheds very much. Just the normal amount of feathers you would get with down.

If this coat didnt shead feathers constantly I would adore it. I love everything about the jacket but every single time I wear it, I am covered in the down

Rated 2 out of 5 by CountryGalLovesLLBean Cute Jacket, Not For Me
Just not warm or rugged enough for my lifestyle. Fit was good with medium weight sweater. I am 5'4" about 150 lbs and the Medium was very comfortable. If you are looking for a cute lightweight jacket to run from house to car to stores, I could recommend this, but I need more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texaskaryn65 My Go To Jacket
I live in North West Indiana on a lake and temps last year were as low as 18 below. I wouldn't go on a hike in these temps, but for running to the store etc this jacket is great. When they say ultra light they mean it (maybe 6 or 8 oz.). I wore it all last winter and with a scarf and gloves I was totally warm. The hood replaces a hat for running in and out. I really LIKE this jacket. I am 5' 1" and carry my 150 pounds in the tummy and bust. I bought a petite L and it still leaves room for a sweater without being tight in the bust when zipped. At first I thought " why didn't they use real leather for the toggle closures", then I had an ah ha moment, they wouldn't hold up to the many washes I'm sure this jacket will go through.The arm length is perfect too. Just ordered another one in blue. Can't say enough.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SW1978 Micropuff down jacket
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.
