Why We Love It
We start with premium 850 down, which provides more warmth for its weight, and then treat it with revolutionary DownTek that allows our jackets to do what many others can’t – keep you warm, even in wet conditions.

On the outside, the game-changing Pertex Quantum nylon shell is tightly woven to resist the elements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Philadelphia1234 from Almost Perfect Jacket I was replacing a down jacket I made from a Frostline kit literally 44 years ago! So I did a lot of research on down jackets before purchasing this one and ordered one from a competing brand to compare. This jacket is so soft and cozy the other didn't stand a chance. The mulberry color is beautiful and it's reasonably warm. The only downer is the hood. It has no brim, instead fitting tight to the head as one would expect from a much cheaper jacket. All the other jackets I looked at in this price range had the larger and more comfortable brim hoods. It's also about $50 overpriced compared to other competitors, but a very nice jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Warm,Waterproof,really fits nicely. Hood is great! Love this jacket! I am in the wet rainy northwest and this is the perfect lightweight but warm jacket. The fit is quite good and I can wear sweaters or fleece under it. It has proven it's waterproof qualities on my morning walks in pouring rain or waiting at the train station. Have I mentioned how much I like the design of the hood?No? Well it's so nice because it does not block my peripheral vision and I can wear a hat under it too. I anticipate wearing it for cross country skiing, football and soccer games, and hiking. I like it so much that I splurged and bought it in blue too. Thanks LL for a great all around jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by camsprite from Best winter jacket ever Pulling this slim, almost weightless item out of its package, I thought, no way will this keep me warm through a Maine winter. In fact, though, it's incredibly warm--even for someone like me, who tends to be cold--and it's easy to wear over another warming layer if you want to be extra-sure. I love how light and unbulky the jacket is and how smoothly it slips on over a sweater. I have a very small frame that is sometimes hard to fit, but the XS petite fits like a dream. Wonderful hood, too, that doesn't dig into your neck or chin when you run the zipper all the way up. Tempted to buy another in a different color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yeti from OK for a Fall Jacket, but not Winter wear The jacket is soft, lightweight, and pretty (I got the Plum Wine color). Me: 5'2", 110 lbs. I ordered a medium, and I like the fit. To test how well the jacket would keep me warm, I wore it in dry, non-windy weather that was 15 degrees F. I wore it with thermal underwear and a sweatshirt. Still, I felt chilled. Not freezing, but not comfortably warm either. The LLBean rating of 'Warmest: to -30 degrees' is an exaggeration. The fabric seems to be on the thin side. So, I don't know how well it will hold up over time. I like the jacket. This is a light down jacket that I'll wear for fall dog walks and running errands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Atlantacustomer from Not warm There is no way this jacket would keep someone warm at -30 as the LL Bean write-up suggests. I ordered this jacket based on the product description, because I was looking for a warm winter coat. After two months of winter wear, I have found that at any temperature below 40, this coat is insufficient and leaves me feeling cold. I can't imagine why LL Bean chooses to promote this coat as a good option for freezing and sub-zero temperatures. It feels more equivalent to a heavy fleece or a lined wind breaker to me. It is satisfactory for wearing at 40-50 degree temperatures, but not for true winter weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuincyGirl90277 from Kept Me Warm & Dry My mom sent this jacket out to me for a trip to Denver for a football game. Under it I had many layers and the jacket itself kept me well insulated. Just this past week I wore it here in California on a rare cold and rainy night and I was quite surprised at how dry it kept me as well as how quickly the jacket dried. Super impressed. I'm a little concerned about some thread pulls on the sleeves; when the threads pull out, the sleeves become a whole piece of fabric instead of the 'quilted' look. There were several loose threads that I'll cut from now on. But overall, the performance of this jacket has been exemplary.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sara0418 from Big Disappointment I so, so, so wanted to love this jacket. I love the styling, the color, the weight; everything about it except it is not warm at all. I knew it was light weight, but I was surprised at just how lightweight it really is. It is very thin and seems as if someone forgot to put any insulation in it. On a windy day the wind goes right through the jacket which is a deal breaker for me. Even with a sweater or fleece underneath it just does not keep the cold out. After 1 wearing the insulation is sticking out of the stitching. As I said above, I so wanted to love this jacket, but alas, I am sending it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ArtySpice from not warm, not enough pockets, narrow shoulders Not worth the price, and probably not even worth the steeply discounted price I paid because of getting a sale color and using a gift card. It's barely warm enough in 30 above weather (with layers, fleece, underneath), definitely not going to work below zero. Needs more pockets; 2 just doesn't cut it when you're an active, outdoorsy person who's not always carrying a purse. The shoulder fit is narrow and "off." When I reach up, the arms/shoulders don't seem to move with me, and the jacket is tight across the back when I reach forward. Can't go up another size because every other part fits well.
