Men's Mountain Classic Anorak, Colorblock is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fitted=much smaller than the original I've had many of the older anoraks (90's-00's) and they were great. This new version is ok. The material is softer, which is nice, but I don't think it will hold up as well as the older styles. The fit is no where near the same as the older styles. I usually wear L, and the older versions L were nice and roomy. This versions L is more like a M, and kinda snug at that. I would recommend TWO sizes larger if you are looking for the same fit as the older versions. I went returned the L and got an XL, and it's ok, but only over a single layer. I might try an XXL...but not sure yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit big. Bought this jacket to use as a slightly thicker outer layer (compared to a lightweight single layer windbreaker). LL website says "slightly fitted" -- size chart indicated medium would be my size. Wanted something that would be good for cold weather winter biking, cross-country skiing, etc. I bought a medium for myself and a small for my getting-bigger-by-the-minute son. I thought the medium was very big. I could fit a down jacket under it. I kept the small for myself (sorry kid) and can comfortably wear one or two layers underneath the jacket. I returned the medium. Aside from confusion on size, jacket is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Spring/Fall Jacket I love this jacket, it looks great and is light enough to stop the breeze and feel warm on a chilly Spring or Fall night. Add a sweater as a mid layer and you'll be ready for anything in those two seasons. I have seen people hiking in these. DO NOT mistake this for a rain jacket or outer layer!!! It has very quick drying material, more akin to a bathing suit. It will not keep you dry out in the elements on the trail if you encounter a downpour. I think LL Bean should do a better job pointing this out before someone ends up in a dangerous situation in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Jacket I have been looking for a good rain jacket for a while. Came across this pullover and had to have it based only on looks (bought online). Upon receiving and using, I was not let down. The material is lightweight yet thick and durable. The sizing allows a sweatshirt or jacket underneath for warmth (as this is purely a shell). The pocket space works great for flashlights, phones, knives, etc. Overall a great product for a great price. I showed my buddy and he picked one up the next day. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but could be better! Deep V-neck zipper makes it easy to get on and off. Kangaroo pouch pocket could be a bit larger and/or a couple of smaller "side" pockets could be added below it as per an earlier version. Open hand pockets just collect snow and are not really useful or needed. Ripstop nylon fabric should replace the cotton currently used since it dries much quicker and is more wind resistant. I use this over my backcountry ski clothes when the wind comes up or for a bit of additional warmth in a snowstorm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I am 6'3'' and 230 lb. No beer belly. Ordered XL tall. Fits good with enough space for a light mid layer. Lightweight fabric. Stores in its own front pocket pouch. Zipper seems cheaply made. No waist-cinch string. Good for summer mornings/evenings at high elevations when backpacking. Think that it will be a good windbreaker in fall when hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to windbreaker I usually give a product a few test runs before posting a review, but I loved this so much after one wearing that I couldn't wait! It's a little like waxed canvas, in that the water just beads right off it (in a drizzle; I probably won't test it in a downpour). But it's light and breathable, yet insulates well too. It's neither fitted nor bulky, and it pairs well with cargo shorts or jeans. I will most likely literally wear this jacket out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent wind shirt I bought this anorak to have a lightweight breathable wind breaker. I live in the high desert of Wyoming so cold and plenty of wind are more prevalent than rain. So far this jacket has been great. No wind penetration at all even in 50 mph. It breathes well enough for vigorous hiking as well. I love the large hood, it seems like a lot of manufacturers skimp on this vital feature or eliminate it all together. My only minor gripe might be that it’s a tad heavier than some other wind shirts I’ve used. Hopefully it makes up for that in durability. I’d definitely trade the kangaroo pouch for a single chest pocket to make wearing a pack easier but that’s ok. A base layer, a grid fleece mid layer, and this jacket are a pretty unstoppable combo. I’m 5’11” 175 lbs. and the large regular was perfect.
