Rated 5 out of 5 by Juliej005 Go for it!
I'm so happy with my snowfield jacket purchase. It runs true to size. It has a nice arm length. I'm 5'8" and at times Beans sleeves can be slightly short on me. The jacket is quite warm and not bulky. I love the waterproof construction. It keeps you completely dry. This jacket is a great buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanShopper2356 The color
I was very disappointment with the color , not as bright as it looks in the picture , really quite dull looking . I really like the style and it's very warm but for the price it's not worth keeping .

Rated 5 out of 5 by NACB Snowfield Jacket
I just received my fuchsia / plum berry jacket today. Took dogs for a walk with temp of 40 and brisk north wind dropping temp to low 30s. This jacket is too warm for this weather, just had t-shirt underneath. Cant wait til it gets colder. I know it will be more than perfect. The color is bright and beautiful. It has a relaxed fit and is very comfortable. Plenty of room for layering when needed. I purchased a small and am 5' 5" and 130#. Very pleased with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaitlinY07 Great winter jacket
I just started wearing this as the mornings in Boston are hovering around 25 degrees. Right now I have the hood off because I don't need it (it's nice that it's removable). The jacket is really warm. I like the sleeves; it has a tight fleece cuff inside the regular sleeve that allows you to pull your hand inside the outer part. It's not very long. I also like that the cuff is dark; I used to have a coat with light cuffs and they would get dirty so easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mhambone Build quality is good. A bit boxee, too short
I am 5'3" and 135, ordered a women's small.
The jacket is of good build quality. The lining of the cuffs, collar and pockets is very nice and non-irritating.
However, the jacket is basically a square. If I raise my arms, the jacket lifts well above my belly button. It is *just* long enough to prevent me from returning it, as I didn't buy it for any active winter sports, like skiing. It would offer no protection from wind or snow drifts around your waist.
It also fits a little wide, especially given how short it is. If I had gotten a size down, god forbid it be any shorter in the XS or petite sizes. So I'm convinced size misses' small is "right" for me, but the "relaxed" fit is "relaxed" even for me, and I am one that gets extremely agitated at the fashionable "alpine" ultra skinny fits at many winter gear retailers. Even with a heavy weight sweater under it, I have lots of room. Which does make the jacket very comfortable, which is ultimately what I need. Just a little boxy looking.
The arms are also very generous with their space, and my arms are those which typically don't fit at all in those "alpine" fit jackets.
So, overall, I give it 3 stars. I will keep it as I need a light, waterproof winter jacket for standing for long periods of times as bus stops here in the Pacific Northwest wet, windy winters. If I was still back home in the Northeast, no way would this jacket do the job! Nor for any winter sport. As a note, I have *not* been able to test the waterproofing in our rain, which it will get plenty of work with. I hope it's up to snuff.

I bought 2 of these coats and had to send both back because of zipper problems, opening and closing coats. I'm very disappointed to see they are still selling them. Mine was a size 1X.

Love this one. Warm and it doesn't feel heavy. A keeper for the cold winter ahead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ActiveRescueDogOwner Outstanding, hooded jacket for cold rain & snow!
XS Regular fits me perfectly! I am 5' 3 1/2", 120 lbs...and finally, a waterproof warm, hooded jacket I don't get lost in! The trunk and sleeves are just the right length for me. This is one of the best purchases ever. I tried on every ladies jacket in the store, and this one fit the best by far and was the most comfortable, despite the fact that it was not the most expensive :-)
Then, I wore it while walking my dogs through SuperStorm Sandy, and I stayed dry and warm despite driving rain and variable gusty winds! The hood actually works! It hangs over the head just the right amount to provide coverage.
I continued to wear it through snow and ice storms, and it still looks brand-new!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RubyTuesday Definitely weatherproof
I have worn this jacket in negative wind chills, blizzards, and heavy winter rain - it definitely keeps you warm and dry. The lining is very warm and comfortable, and the outer layer won't let a drop of moisture in. The downside to this is that the jacket is cumbersome to wear, and I can hardly move my head from side to side when the zipper is done up all the way. There is probably no real way around this if you want a well constructed weatherproof jacket. Also, I would love this jacket in a petite option: there was a ton of excess material at the back of the jacket for me, and the sleeves are too long for me.
