Women's Mountain Classic Full-Zip Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 139.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit, practical, comfortable I love this full zip jacket. I have worn Bean's classic pullover anoraks for 35 years and thought I'd try a full zip for greater ease in removing it once I get heated up on my daily hikes. I love the roomy side pockets ( almost as much as the anorak pouch) , love the zip side pocket for keys or a phone. The mid thigh length is perfect. The XS is a great fit , sleeves nice and long, and the jacket is roomy enough for a fleece layer. I bought the basic navy, but would like to see it made in some other more fun colors. Would definitely recommend this jacket for a solid , hardy windbreaker, seems like it should last me another 10-15 years .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like it, but... I really like this anorak but I can't get passed the dangling pull cords. I understand LLB is keeping the original style look for an anorak, however, the cords get in the way. There's no place to tuck them unless the neck is zipped all the way up and I flip them over the collar. I bend over, and they dangle and get in my face. And, to be honest, I believe they are probably a hazard waiting to happen and will get caught in something they shouldn't. There is a reason manufacturers have gotten away from loose hood cords. LLB would better serve this anorak to have the hide away draw cords as the majority of their coats do. Sending coat back unfortunately

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a wonderful jacket I just got this jacket in yesterday and my first impression is of it is great! Literally the only down side for me is that I feel like the shoulders are a bit snug, if I try to cross my arms it feels restricted as there is no stretch to the fabric. I couldn't go a size up because everywhere else the jacket fits amazingly. The sleeve length is perfect, the jacket hits me right below the hips (which I love), it zips up so smoothly with room for a thick layer under. I love this jacket so much & if there was any stretch to it then it would be beyond perfect but I can definitely live with the overall fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & waterproof I love my new jacket! When I first ordered I thought it would be made of a thinker material and a bit surprised when I open the small package it came in. It is more like a windbreaker material. However, I loved the look so decided to keep it. My first wear was standing in a long line to vote, in the rain in the northern New York State town of Saratoga Springs! I had a thin cashmere sweater on and hoped I'd be warm enough and stay dry! 100% on both counts! I always buy a size up, as I don't like things tight and want room to wear heavier sweaters or layers. The fit is perfect! I would recommend this jacket as a go to rain jacket, lightweight yet warm (no lining). It's casual, yet I would feel comfortable wearing to see a client for business.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, excellent quality I was in need of a lightweight jacket that would repel rain and break some wind. This jacket, while light to carry or tie around your waist, is heavy enough to keep me dry during a light rain or drizzle and blocks the wind. I would consider it a better wind breaker than rain jacket. I am not too sure how well it will hold up against a down pour. I love the hood. It is deep so my face doesn't get wet but I can still see where I am going. One other feature that would be nice would be a hidden pocket on the inside or zippers on the pockets. Otherwise, fantastic jacket that I am certain I will get years of use out of. (General fit on me was a little large, I will be able to comfortably fit a sweatshirt underneath for added warmth).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just ordered my second one I LOVE this jacket. I just got my beautiful, well-made teal jacket and after one bike ride on a windy day, I am ordering a second one in black. It is really windproof without having the slippery feel of nylon. It's very breathable so that I don't work up a huge sweat while I'm exercising in it. The pockets are deep enough, although no zipper on the outer pockets (there is an inner pocket accessed through a side pocket which has a zipper). My weight is mostly around my middle, and the extra-large petite fits me perfectly across the chest/abdomen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adore this jacket This jacket is sized nicely for a petite person. I purchased the petite small and the fit is good and leaves room for a vest or sweater underneath. Some of the time petite sizes are still way too long for me but this product is perfect in length. The only complaint I have is that the elastic in the sleeves is very loose so the sleeves do not stay pushed up and because of the elastic rolling them is impossible. For people who like to push up sleeves this is a minor annoyance. I wear this for dog walking and the pockets are great--plenty of room for pick up bags and a large cell phone fits well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mountain Classic Full-Zip Jacket This is a nice waterproof jacket but a little over priced for a windbreaker jacket. For me it is a little too long. It seems like more of an athletic fit. When the zipper is closed and I go to sit in my car it is very tightly fitted at the bottom. I have to lift the jacket up because I feel like the zipper area might rip at the bottom as I am sitting. The elastic cuff at the bottom of the sleeves is too loose, it would be fine for a man but for me I would like to see it an inch tighter. I do love the deep pockets. The hood is nice, but if you wear the hood and the jacket is zipped all the way up the hood falls over your face.The hood only works sufficiently when the jacket is zipped all the way up.
