Rated 5 out of 5áby Kizyle Primaloft Packaway Jacket
I got this jacket a year ago. 5'10" 205lb athletic build and a large tall fits great, typically I wear regular but regular seemed too short so returned for tall. Blocks wind decently, can wear inside with no activity with long sleeve shirt underneath at up to 60 degrees, then can go outside to walk the dog comfortably at 30 degrees. Great jacket, light as a feather, packs down to nothing and easy to take with you just in case it's needed.

It is light and compresses so that it fits easily into a shoulder bag or daypack. For walking around town under a leather jacket it keeps you toasty in the 20s.
I'm 6' 3" and the tall size is sufficiently long.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Ron2toes Not true to size.
We returned the jacket because the item was not true to size. My husband could not move his arms in it. Too fitted.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Ladysouth Permaloft Jacket
Like it but not as advertised. It's a windbreaker or under layer, not a warm jacket.
Pro; very light, very comfortable, good construction
It's perfect to wear in the house when the temp is 60 degrees.
Con; Cut very short to be worn as an under garment
Anything worn under it has to be tucked in or it shows.
Comfortable down to 50 or maybe 45 degrees.
Below that requires a sweater under it or a jacket over it.
My wife ordered for me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby NorthCountryGuy Exactly what I wanted.
First thing - Get a size up from what you normally get from LLBean. Most of what I wear from them is an X-Large (a few Larges)...however with this coat the x-large was a bit snug, definitely not enough room to comfortably have a thick flannel or a sweatshirt underneath. The 2X has plenty of room and isn't too baggy. Also, if you have a long body, get a tall. Again, normally I do not order talls from LLBean, but with this coat the regular was a bit too short.
Now about the coat:
It is exactly what I wanted! A light weight, warm coat that I can pack into a backpack and take with me anywhere. It weighs next to nothing and is surprisingly warm for how thin it is. Wouldn't take it out in below 0 temps but anything In the teens or higher is perfect.
I cannot comment on the water resistance as I have not taken it out in the rain...but the material seems sturdy enough to keep me dry.
I could not be more stoked about this jacket. With realistic expectations, I think anyone would find this a useful coat.

Great coat. Didn't go into the store to buy a coat- just to return something but I couldn't pass on it. If you're ordering online there are a couple things you should know:
-It's lightweight so you'll need baselayers/thermals/a shell when temps drop below freezing. It would be nice if it was a little warmer, but Va winters only get so cold for so long so it's really about what you need and where you are. Should work for me as a versatile everyday jacket for most of the year.
-Under "Size and Fit" it's described as "Slightly fitted." Consider yourself warned. I'm 5'10" 170lb - and Medium fit perfectly but when they say "falls at the hip" I guess that means it's short and barely covers your belt. The Tall version fit me much better.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Fernery Not as warm as expected
I love the lightweight packability of the jacket, and though it can be worn by itself, it seems more suitable to be worn as a layer under something else. Wouldn't recommend wearing it alone when the temperature dips under 40 degrees.Had hoped that it would provide more warmth on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bogeycat Lightweight and warm
Hard to believe a jacket so light is so warm. Perfect for winter days in the south.
