I really wanted to like this jacket so much so that I sent the first one back (too large). I had to order a size down, to a small.
That aside, I had to send the second one back as well. During the winter I wear flannel shirt almost exclusively. My flannel and the jackets interior microfiber made this slightly difficult for o get on and off. They stuck to each other. There was no give to either material. it wasn't that difficult but I didn't want to think that hard every time I put it on and took it off. A silk lining would be nice. I still recommend the jacket because it is nice, it's better without flannel, and a lot of reviewer seem to manage just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by litoguti Great looks and excellent function!
If I were to rate all the things that I had purchased from LL Bean this would rank at or near the top in terms of questions from friends and acquaintances. Where did you get it? LLB!! Functionally very good, with good wind breaking and water repellency. Warm. Hood is quite comfortable. Pockets are also good. I would have much preferred a two way zipper though. Great item!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeaner978 Lightweight and snug jacket
I originally bought a size medium but later returned it for a small. I'm 5'8" with a medium build and these run very large. I would order a size down. This is my favorite jacket when there's not a lot of precipitation outside. It's very lightweight, comfortable, and warm. It also cuts the wind. I just wish it was a little longer to cover my hips. An elastic drawstring would be a nice addition to help insulate from the wind but overall a nice jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Woodmon Can double as a sleeping bag!
This jacket was enormous on me. I wear everything large with the occasional XL t-shirt, so I figured a large would do. I figured wrong. I bought the jacket hoping to wear it under my winter coat, but I'm fairly certain that, if I tried hard enough, I could fit it over my winter coat. If the tag didn't say otherwise, I would absolutely believe it was an XL or even a 2XL. On top of that, because of the way it was folded and packaged, the shoulders kind of stood up like they had pads, which made me look like an 80s high-powered business woman. I am exchanging it at a store soon to see how a smaller size fits, so I would definitely recommend going to the store first. I really hope a medium isn't too small because I like the jacket otherwise.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DutchJohn Too much poly, not enough WOOL!
Although this sweatshirt looks great and is quality made I should have checked the fabric content closer. I find that polyester and other synthetic fabrics tend to make me sweat! When I saw "Wooltech" I figured that wool would be the majority fabric but that's what you get for assuming.
Just doesn't work for me, natural fabrics are the best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by warrenisaac Runs Large!!
I am a medium in everything, and LLBean sweatshirts usually run a little looser on me, but this was huge! The sleeves were a good 8 inches too long (granted, I am fairly short, but these were way longer than usual). The body of it was so large it was comical. I had to return it.
Otherwise, it seemed like a great jacket. Warm and comfortable, but not quite as soft as I hoped. It does have the scratchy feel that usually comes with wool.
Just be sure to think carefully about your measurements. If LLbean sizes run slightly larger on you, I would definitely go down a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by supermom12 attractive, hooded and cuts wind
I bought this beautiful jacket for my son, who loves a midweight jacket for in-between Michigan weather. It fits him great, arm length being critical. He is 6'2, 220 lbs. and large is perfect. It will be super for college , as it cuts the wind and he loves a hood for rain. It also looks really nice for social outings. The wool will add warmth. He is sure this will be a favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChandlerCourt A Great Jacket
I have really enjoyed this hoodie. It's warm, comfortable and versatile. It does run a little big. I wear a medium in most jackets and found the small fit me far better.
