Rated 5 out of 5 by HonestShopper I really want in white
This is the second time I am writing about this jacket. In this spring I was wearing this jacket in island coral color almost everyday. I saw the new Lined Freeport Field Jackets in the summer catalog. I really don't need a fleece lining for spring or summer. When it is getting too warm to wear it, it must be very annoying to carry such a heavy jacket. Please bring back unlined Freeport Field Jackets in white and rhubarb colors included. I think that most reviewers want thicker fabric, not a fleece lining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spokesgirl Great Jacket
I love this jacket - so much so that I think this is my first review after years of purchasing from LL Bean! I bought this for a trip to France, and it was the perfect layer for 60-70 degree weather. And actually chic enough for Paris, especially when paired with a scarf. I only wish I had seen the lined version before my purchase, for comparison at least, but am very happy with this regardless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cin1295 LOVE THIS JACKET!!!!!!
This is the perfect jacket for cooler spring and summer days. I purchased this in Soft Moss and paired it with the LL Bean Floral dress in Sea Grass for a great traveling ensemble.
I love this jacket so much that I have to purchase another one in a different color, maybe even 2 more!!
Please keep making this jacket as it is extremely comfortable and just enough on a breezy day or in a cold airport!

Rated 5 out of 5 by aquamaid Versatile, very cool jacket
Great quality jacket and the petite is perfect for my 5'4" height. I see this as a 'go to' jacket for spring, summer and early fall. Easy to fold and pack, too. Zippered pockets are a nice touch to carry cash, a credit card and keys for a quick outing. Get it, you'll love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PatKCalifornia NOT a Barn Coat ...
What I was really looking for was an unlined or lightly lined traditional barn coat. You know ... sturdy canvas fabric, loads of deep pockets, falling to below hip level, with those neat contrasting cuffs and collars, etc. But try finding one of those! All you can find nowadays are barn coats with heavy linings, which I can only wear one or two months a year where I live in Northern California. So I gave the Freeport jacket a try, and knew immediately it was no barn coat. Way too short, not very sturdy, and with a weird styling ... the business of the back of the coat being longer than the front has never looked very attractive on me. Sigh. I sent it back. All I want is a lightly lined or unlined barn coat!! Wonder if I'll ever find one?

Rated 5 out of 5 by leg71 Great jacket!
As a person who is often chilly and needs a light jacket, this fits the bill perfectly! The length is true to size. I ordered a 2X because I am a size 16-18 and was worried the arms may shrink in length and width. The muted blue color is a great color and a nice neutral choice. I would buy this again and recommend it to friends and family

Rated 5 out of 5 by louisek SO CHIC!
Chicest garment I've ever purchased from LLBean! It *is* what I would call a "shirt jacket". Unlined, only a bit heavier than a sturdy shirt. It's what you would wear over a tee shirt or tank top or spring/summer dress. The double stitching shapes the shoulder area beautifully. The hardware is neither too lightweight (cheap looking) or way too heavy for the garment. And it's not sparkling gold, thankfully. The stone color is gorgeous but less on the grey end and more on the cream end. I'm 5"5" and it hits the very top of my thigh (perfect!) -- this blond model they use is beautiful but she is very tall and the garment is a bit longer and has more movement than it appears in the photos. True, as was mentioned -- the collar is a slight downfall as it's just cut too wide but this is a common problem these days with S/M/L sizing. Collars look sloppy on everything now in my view. This looks best when not sized up to accommodate more than a shirt or turtleneck underneath since it's cut like a shirt around the shoulders. I bought a medium (5'6', 130) so it would be roomy but it's not cut for that. I'm exchanging for a small or even xs. By the way the pockets are too small to be of much use other than for a couple of credit cards and keys. Normally that would really annoy me but this jacket is so very chic and the pockets are so well proportioned for the look -- who cares. Not a practical "jacket" but a very chic shirt jacket to make a plain outfit look polished for shopping or dining and to protect against freezing air conditioning during summer. As for ironing -- personally I like this sort of garment slightly rumpled and the seams puckered slightly -- that's the nature of the style!

Good spring/summer jacket. Love all the pockets. Just enough weight to tame breezes, but not wintry heavy. Works well for those of us who are always cold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by marylandcrab Puny zippered jacket
I returned this jacket because it's zipper was impossible for me to open or close. It was just puny, not strong or large enough for a jacket. I wish I could have kept it because it was perfect in other ways. I would not recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SunLily Wanted to Love This
Contrary to many reviewers, I was quite happy with the weight of this jacket. My problem was with the sizing. After measuring my arm length according to the chart, I am a regular rather than a petite. I am 5'3" and weight 108. The XS was huge on me, with the arms extending to the middle of my hand, and the overall girth of the jacket and sleeves was voluminous. It had to go back.
