Women's Ultralight 850 Down Sweater is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fits well but feels plastic and tore easily I was really looking forward to wearing this jacket. It fit my relatively petite, narrow shouldered curvy figure well and seemed like it would work out despite feeling rather plastic and not as breathable as I wanted. However, the first time I tried wearing it, the fabric tore under normal usage, not even doing anything athletic. It must have rubbed on something because i found a feather later then realized there was a 1-2" gash near the bottom of the sleeve. Since this was supposed to be a reasonably rugged jacket for every day wear, I am returning it rather than getting a replacement. I don't want to tiptoe around in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Universal Jacket Ever! This jacket is the most versatile jacket I have ever had -- I have worn in while walking to class, hiking, and everything in between. I have been caught in the rain in this coat and it stays dry enough in comparison to other insulated jackets. Perfect for the fall to winter transition. I love the grey color because it matches with everything. I am very petite, the coat is a good fit but I can still layer it over a hoodie so it's not too snug, which is great. It cinches at the bottom which keeps the cold out, and it's great to travel with because it packs to such a small size. Such a good value! - Malu, L.L.Bean Student Ambassador

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stitch lines came undone -- Twice! I am very disappointed in this product. Expected better quality, especially at this high price point. Ordered it last Thanksgiving and noticed during the holidays that one of the stitch lines that holds the down in place started falling and then pulling out. Before long, a section of the lined stitching was missing. After the holidays, I exhanged it (around Feb). Then, the new one had a stitch line start to loosen and pull out. It was in a different place. Both times the problem was visible when I wore the coat. Still wearing the second coat and disappointed everything I see the missing stitch line and thread hanging. Can't believe it happened twice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I saw these light weight sweater jackets on sale a few weeks ago and purchased 30 of them for our staff. I purchased sizes small to 2 X. I had our company logo put on them locally. As you can see our staff looks soooooo professional and the girls love them. No problem getting the staff to wear them every day. They are definitely comfortable, arms have adequate room to flex when staff is loading equipment in and out of our company cars each day. While these sweater jackets are light, they definitely are warm as indicated in description of product. About a third of our staff wished the jacket had a 2 way zipper. Much more comfortable while driving. Thank you LL Bean for another great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't fit like my last one We are trying to get a new 850 Down Sweater, and using the size chart, ordered a womens small initially and it was far too large. We returned it, and ordered the Petite after checking the very worn size on my current sweater from 2015. I wear that one all the time and it's getting worn out. This down sweater came and was still a bit long and the sleeves were long. The one thing I don't want is longer sleeves. If I could wash it and shrink it just a little I'd be delighted, but I'm afraid not. So we returned this one too. The Size charts don't leave me any choice but to try a Childs 650 Down Sweater - Keeping my fingers crossed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket I really love this jacket. The fit is perfect for me and the length in the arms is just right also. The jacket is so light that you can't believe you are wearing it. It is nice and warm for my walks and soon to be cross country skiing. A perfect jacket for layering too. I live in the Pocono Mts. of Pennsylvania and I will be nice and warm this winter. Perfect jacket!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Borrowed my daughter’s then just had to get my own Bought one for my college student a couple years ago, then borrowed it for a trip to Alaska. Loved it so much I ordered one for myself. It was perfect for layering and folds up tiny for the suitcase and still looks great. I typically wear a Medium or Large depending on the style. I ordered a Medium and still had room for a couple layers underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from order down I am glad I read the other reviews that suggested ordering down a size. I typically order M because I do not things super snug. I ordered this in size Small and it is still pretty roomy. Quality is nice and it keeps me warm on cooler fall days. I plan to use this as a layer under a shell when skiing. I think it will keep me plenty warm on a cold winter ski day.
