Plus, it's more environmentally friendly with a new recycled shell that's tough against the weather and easy on the planet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RJOM from Need another layer I agree with others who commented that the coat is not as warm as advertised. I wore this for the first time in the recent cold snap in Massachusetts, temperature about 35 degrees. I never wear another layer underneath, but with this coat and walking outside from a long parking lot to dinner, I was disappointed and thinking that I need a sweater or pullover underneath it to feel warm. This is probably a good November coat, but probably not for December to February without layers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dylan21 from Makes a Good Sweater After wearing this on my daily walks for a week in mild temps(mid-40s) with 2 other layers I would classify jacket as borderline warm but very light weight and comfortable.I like the 3 zip outside pockets and the one large non-zip inside one, but i can't imagine wearing it in the 25º temps it is recommended for. I have 2 older LLB coats in my closet that are much better suited for cold weather. I think it would be great for running errands where you are not outside much. I am mostly wearing it inside in lieu of a sweater. There is a lot of freedom of movement and it looks nice. I'm really glad i bought this on sale($100).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Caper from Way Too Optimistic Rating My wife and I just bought these jackets and we think they are great except the temperature ratings are absurd. I just came back from a brisk walk wearing LL Bean's heavy weight long john 1/4 zip top and at 35 degrees out, I was cool. Nice looking and fitting jacket, but you don't want to wear these in temps anywhere near what Bean has rated them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by capecodmick from Light as air, warm as toast After nearly 20 years I was still overjoyed with my Bean Flying Tiger leather jacket in the wintertime. (And when the temperature dropped below 20 degrees, I simply wore my Bean Sweater Fleece beneath it for even more warmth). However, I have to admit that my beloved Flying Tiger is a tad heavy. So when my father-in-law bought a 850 Down Jacket, and it was as light as air, I had to buy one for myself. So comfortable, so warm, so light--and yet it's good to minus 25 degrees! And knowing Bean products, I'll probably have this jacket as long as I've enjoyed my Flying Tiger. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Rated 5 out of 5 by i1pro from Excellent everyday jacket using modern materials I'm a big fan of LL Bean. I've been very loyal since my first winter jacket for college. Many jackets after, I still come to LL Bean for the best warmth to price ratio. This jacket is excellent, made with the latest materials and technology. Excellent quality Down (850 FP) and treated for water proof. The outer shell is Pertex Quantum, which offers similar isolation and breathability to the good old Gore-tex but much thinner and comfortable. missing from my wish list: 1. more down packed into it. 2. pockets inside the jacket. 3. Dual side zipper. 4. inner stretchy cuffs like the older jackets had. * I really wish LL Bean would list the Fill-Weight along side the Fill-power of the down. Otherwise all the jackets seem identical.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DCLLBeanFan from Stylish, but not as warm as the rating states I've decided to write this review after commenting on another reviewer's thoughts about the jacket not matching the rated warmth rating of 25*; you can read those comments under his 2-star rating for the jacket. First the good: 1) This is a very stylish jacket which has generated many unsolicited positive comments in the single 24+hrs I've had it; always nice to believe other people think you have innate good taste and sense of style even if it isn't true! 2) It is lightweight, but can keep someone comfortable when standing around in gentle Fall weather (50*, no wind) while wearing light layers underneath. Areas to improve: 1) found the fit to be a tad tight under the arms and across the shoulders for a Large, Regular fit. I found the best approach for sizing various pieces of apparel is to start with what you think your normal size is (me: Regular, Large), and then try on different combinations around that (ie Lg-Tall; XL-Reg; XL-Tall). I'm a bit wider across the shoulders, so the combination of XL-Regular worked best for me; the XL-Tall fit too large for the rest of my frame. I encourage you to try this approach in order to find your own correct fit. 2) The warmth rating system. In my estimation, this is in serious need of revision for this jacket. I find it very hard to believe most people would find themselves comfortably warm at the rated temp of 25* with this jacket as their main article of warm clothing. If a person has to wear a base layer, a mid layer, this jacket, a waterproof shell, and have a roaring fire nearby for the rating system to make sense, then the rating needs to be adjusted. When I see an LLBean outerwear jacket rated at whatever, I (and I would presume most people) presume the jacket alone should keep me comfortable down to the 'standing around doing nothing' temperature level (25* in this case). I shouldn't need to have to have multiple layers of other warmth assisting clothing to reach that rated temperature. Otherwise, on my own, I can simply buy a waterproof shell, and layer sundry other articles of clothing such as thermals, an Irish wool sweater, and/or a polar fleece underneath to reach whatever 'cold temperature rating' I need to stay warm in. This jacket's rating simply isn't accurate. 50* Fall weather? Yeah, probably. 25* Winter temps? Not likely. This is still a nice jacket, but I would caution potential buyers to be more realistic about the temps they will use this jacket in, and the amount and type of additional layering they will need in order to remain comfortably warm as the temperatures drop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nate from Not as nice as expected Its not as warm as expected. It is also barely water resistant. It's a very loose term apparently. Water doesnt soak in immediately but it doesnt take long to penetrate the fabric. It's not what I expected at all given the brand and description. Wont make this mistake again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Matt from poor quality Bought the coat in April of 2019 and it's already ripped at the seam. Maybe wore it for 3 months. I would pass on this one.
