Rated 5 out of 5 by MAwinterbuyer Perfect fit with underlying layer
Hi, I am 5'7" and 156 pounds. I went with a large and it has plenty of room for a sweatshirt underneath. I used the sizing that LLbean provided when ordering. This jacket has elastic wrist bands that help it feel snug at the wrist. The waist also has a fastening string. Overall, it feels comfortable and maybe even a little big as I have a small bust, 36B. I would order it again in Red if it ever becomes available. I can't tell you how warm it is as I bought it in September before winter.

I ordered this jacket twice - in 2 different sizes, but ended up returning both. It's just too bulky and unflattering, even in a smaller size. It felt nice and warm but it was not a good fit.

NYC on 2/14/2016 was record-breaking cold. This jacket outperformed. I highly recommend this super lightweight, comfortable fitting, stylish jacket.

I initially bought this jacket in the solid dark blue, liked it so much, I bought a 2nd one in 2-tone purple. Somehow I had missed this one, the search engine here could be improved . This jacket is on the longer side though not a parka, has no hood which I prefer, has a zipper plus snaps. Could be improved by a 2-way zipper. Pockets - I would prefer no zipper (a previous jacket from Bean was ruined because the tiny pocket zippers got stuck in the fabric & could not be opened). Also - stop putting the inside pocket up near the breast! Lower would be much preferred! The jacket is warm, in wind & snow, but doesn't come in petite. I did get a large even though it might look a bit oversized on me (I am petite, 5'2" and 145 lbs. No girlish figure.
But I wear it with layers, so a medium would be too snug. Hope it (and the zippers) last a long time.

Got this Trail Model Down Jacket in black. True to size. It is so warm and snuggly! I wish I had this jacket earlier in the winter! I am so happy with my purchase. I originally wanted the Mountain Red, and if it becomes available again, I will get it. But I am so happy with the black.

I purchased this coat in the color black in a size 2x and loved it the minute I put it on. It has a great fit, not big or bulky, is true to size and very warm. Highly recommend!

I usually order large, but my Down Vest was a bit tight so order XL for Down Moutain Trail Jacket. Perfect fit, I did talk with a rep as I wanted to be sure on sleeve lenghts, she was great. I', 5"5 140, it was a perfect fit for me. don't like things tight.or heavy.
I carefully studied all the Reviews, some were really helpful
Love the Red color.

I've tried a couple different LL Bean jackets and I've finally found one that is a perfect fit. I am very happy with this purchase. I'm 5'5, 145lbs with an athletic build and I got the size M. There is plenty of room for a fleece or sweater underneath, but it's not too baggy or bulky to be worn with just a long-sleeve t-shirt or turtleneck. The outside pockets are well-placed and the inside pocket is a plus. I would definitely recommend to a friend!

Ordered this jacket in Misses Large. This jacket is not offered in petite except for the two-tone.
I am 5' 117# and the size fit nicely. Sleeve length is perfect as is the body length. From some of the reviews I expected the jacket to look a little "chunky" but was pleasantly surprised. I love the jacket and for a size outside my petite range, it's a great fit and roomy enough for a sweater.
