Rated 3 out of 5áby ZionHiker Could have been much better
This jacket could have been almost perfect.
The PROBLEM IS THE COLLAR, WHICH IS A PROBLEM ON ALMOST ALL JACKETS MADE TODAY. The zipper zips all the way through the collar,which I don't like because you don't need the collar much of time. The collar will constantly hit the chin when it isn't zipped all the way through because it is just jutting out right under your chin.. The front of the jacket is also left open when the collar isn't zipped up, so the top of your chest can get cold.
The collar should be separate from the zipper and body of jacket. You should be able to zip it all the way to the base of the neck and keep the collar down.
You should be able to flip the collar up and then snap it in place. If you don't need it, it can be folded down and out of the way.
Please start making some jackets in this manner.
The jacket is comfortable and the material is nice, but the collar makes it less than it could have been.

Rated 3 out of 5áby EvansgaPRG Runs Small
Ll Bean Jackets have been a mainstay of my winter clothing. They usually run generous in size and can be used with layers of clothes. This one runs small and thus tight with no room for layers. It was a big disappointment.Returned for larger size.

Rated 3 out of 5áby KeepShoveling Warm, but poor fit
This jacket was incredibly light, compact, and warm, but the fit was really off. I'm 5'8", 170lb, athletic build, and the arm holes were incredibly constricting in both small and medium sizes. Just standing, the jacket was pinched at the armpits, and I can't imagine doing anything active with it on (eg. shoveling). Meanwhile, the bottom of the jacket fits like a garbage bag.
If only the fit was better, it would make a great fall jacket / winter layer...

Rated 2 out of 5áby Anvil Defects
I decided to try this one again (odd sizing caused me to return the first) but it arrived with loose stitching and a cut in the fabric of the left sleeve. I've returned it for an exchange but since I have to pay return postage from Canada it ends up costing my an extra $10 each time.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MadeinMichigan Almost perfect
This coat is very warm, light weight and quiet. The only thing I would change is the length, the bottom of the coat fits like a sweater, if I had my way it would be long enough to to protect my back when I bend over and sides when I reach for something. There is a Long version but given the measurements I don't think the problem will be completed corrected but it's worth a shot.
Excellent coat, I wear mine under my bow hunting jacket and even snowboarding. Packs up small and is good for your day pack in cold conditions or an everyday jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5áby ATHIKERRICK Almost Perfect Outdoor Jacket
As many people have lamented, "This jacket is cut tight!" I'm 5'10" 242 lbs. The XLg fits me pretty good with a thin top. A mid or heavy weight might be too thick. The jacket is good for moderate outdoor activity. If your doing anything too strenuous your probably going to sweat. I've worn it while hiking in high 30's and been comfortable. Sheds light mist and dries fast. Just wish Bean could build quality outdoor gear for people who aren't thin.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Almonds Cold and poor fit
This jacket is too light to use when it's cold out, and too warm when it cool (think early fall).
The cut of the jacket is poor too. Bean's has many better jackets and I will stick with them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tedward Great jacket!
so light weight, but very warm! Have been able to wear it lately with temps in the 40's and it's toasty warm! not bulky like down which was another factor when purchasing, looking into the vest version. Curious to see if it keeps me warm when the 20's & 30's arrive, I'm guessing it will.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JGST19 Great Jacket!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought this jacket for a backpacking trip last year. The temperature got down to -2 and i was toasty with this and a rain jacket over it to repel wind. It snowed and i was completely dry. It is breathable and has a good fit. I got the cayenne color, also I was able to stuff it anywhere in my pack. It is really cool that it can go inside its own pocket. Wish it had a hood though!!!!
