Rated 5 out of 5 by SavannahDreamin Very Nice
Love this jacket especially the sleeve length speaking from someone who has always finds sleeves to be too short. You'll want to pay close attention to the size chart for this as I believe 'vanity-sizing' is in play here. I purchased a small and it fits perfectly with even a bit of room for a light sweater underneath... nothing else in my wardrobe is a small. I fall into the medium rage most everywhere else at 5'9", 145#s, 36" bust. Love the ease of the snap pockets on the front but do wish there was an inside zip pocket to tuck a credit card & my phone for quick trips out and about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AllSeasonHiker Great design, bad fit
I was really excited to get this jacket, but unfortunately, the cut didn't work on me at all. I'm 5'2" and an hourglass shape, and as other reviewers with that shape mentioned, it wasn't flattering at all. The sleeves came down to my fingertips, but the jacket itself was short on my torso, which just exaggerated my shape making it look dumpy. It's such a great looking jacket on it's own, but in person, it seemed kind of flimsy, and the zipper didn't look like very good quality. Too expensive for a jacket that is only spring/fall wear. Colors, and the retro pockets on chest are great though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kayakmom Great jacket!
I love this jacket. I ordered my regular size and it fits perfectly. I have worn it alone and under another jacket and love the way it keeps in my body heat without feeling bulky. I often have problems with sleeves being too short but the sleeve length is perfect. I would recommend this jacket.

I love this jacket and expect to wear it a lot this fall/winter. I love the gray color and the orange lining is fun too. The styling of the jacket is very cute and feminine (two words I don't often use to describe a down jacket). To me the jacket seemed to run a bit big, which I suppose may be why it is also offered in XXS. I'm 5'5" and 115 lbs. or so and am pleased with the slightly roomy fit I got with the XS.

Rated 2 out of 5 by travelerdc Wanted to love but disappointed...
I really wanted this jacket and, in theory, it is a great product. In actuality, it's disappointed big time. The down is coming out the more I wear it and the zipper has broken on me twice already. It's really cheap seemingly. I'm 5'5 and about 150 which is my highest. I carry it in my legs and hips so I got the large but it's too big in some places and as other reviews have said too tight across the back between my shoulder blades. The medium fit better in a way but not when it was zippered up. I wanted to love this but the quality doesn't justify the price. I'm surprised at ll bean. It's going back and they need to make some manufacturing/sizing tweaks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by craigs1gurl Very comfortable and warm!
I have had this jacket for weeks now and I love it more each time I wear it. The color is awesome and subtle so it matches just about everything I wear. It has a zipper and snap closure but I find myself using the snaps every time. The snaps look very cool and the small breast pockets have a magnetic closures. The jacket fits snug and is very flattering around the waist but the bust is rather tight so might not be a great fit for a lady with a larger bust size. It also has a good arm length,this is rather hard to find for me. The only thing I find to be bothersome with this jacket is the down comes out a lot. I know this is typical with down but I was hoping this jacket would be different.All in all I would recommend this jacket and if it doesn't work for you LL Bean is the BEST for returns!

Rated 5 out of 5 by prophotographer flattering fit and great style
this is my new "grab it out and the door" jacket! great outerwear in spring or fall, but you will need another layer in the winter. It is warm, but I don't think it will be enough for 30 degrees or less here in the mountains.
I'm 5"1" and 106 lbs. The weight is all in my hips and belly. This is slimming and fits well from top to bottom. I ordered a small. Plenty roomy through the shoulders and a bit on the loose side, which I really like.
This is a winner for me!

Rated 3 out of 5 XL extra strange fit.
Jacket arrived today. Disappointed that they did not offer jacket in true plus sizes. I've got a full hourglass figure and the fit is pretty bad. Way too large through shoulders and arms, sleeves are way long, yet we can't really get this jacket to zip over my hips. Stuck between keeping and returning it. I could only wear this jacket open, with layers underneath. Not quite what I had in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by busy4me great jacket
I really like this jacket it's really light weight but warm on these chilly mornings and nights were having already. I like the button cuffs there a little past my wrist I actually like that I think I have long arms I roll the cuffs when it's warmer and keep them down when the wind is blowing and it's colder I think it fits true to the size chart you can fit a mid layer under it or vest the shoulders are a little tighter on me when I want to extend my arms fully with a layer underneath but I also think my arms and shoulders are big. I'm 5 ft 7 about 160 a little athletic and I got the medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WhitedogL Love this jacket!
I love the style of this jacket, sporty yet feminine and figure flattering, not boxy. I got the granite color which is a deep gray. If you do not feel like zipping it shut, you can snap it shut instead - I like having both options.
