Women's Stretch Primaloft Packaway Jacket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I've worn this jacket for my early morning brisk walks for about 4 weeks with temperatures in the mid 20s to low 40s. It does block the wind and I'm plenty warm. I need to unzip it half way through my walk. A sweatshirt has been all I need underneath. I usually wear a medium but wanted the option for more layering underneath if needed. Also, I have broad shoulders and long arms and the large is perfect. Hips measure 42 inches and there is room to spare. It has been the perfect jacket for cold mornings when a fleece is not warm enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moves with you I found this jacket to be flattering and easy to wear. You can move with it on. They were out of XXS in black, so I got XS and it is loose but still looks nice. I will be keeping this one in favor of the hooded version; that one seemed to run tighter in the hips in both XS and XXS. I wear size 2 jeans for size reference, if that helps. I will definitely get some use of this on fitness walks in pretty much any winter weather. it's lightweight but warm in motion. I believe you look good when you are comfortable, so I am feeling great about this jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I really wanted to love it!! I have tried so hard to love this jacket because it’s exactly what I was looking for (material, weight, fit, comfort) BUT it’s just NOT warm enough! I live in MN and I’m not one to complain about being cold. I don’t expect to get parka warmth from it, but even wearing it when temps are in the 40’s F (and long sleeves under) I still feel cold through the jacket. So if you’re looking for a light, packable jacket in warmer temps this may be perfect for you, but I’m sadly returning mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful general purpose jacket I bought this jacket to serve as what used to be called a "car coat." That is, a winter coat for running errands, visiting family, walks when the weather isn't too cold, travel when I didn't anticipate major outdoor activities. I specifically wanted a coat for a wide range of temperatures but on the warmer side of winter. I have cold weather parkas, but I wanted something much lighter in weight, less bulky, easy to take on and off, packable for travel. This is that jacket! It is featherweight but warm in the 20F-40F range. Could go a bit lower depending on layers. It is water-resistant and stops the wind much better than I anticipated. I wish it came in as many colors as the non-stretch packaway, but black was ok with me. Also, I wish the cuffs were rib-knit rather than elastic, and I wish it were 2 inches longer, to cover the rear end. However, I couldn't find any jackets in that length (~30"), so I'm not deducting stars. I really think this jacket is perfect for my purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket I love it. Warm enough without weight. I tried it on in Victor store otherwise I would have ordered a small. Medium is just right as you can wear a sweater under it and still is not too big if you don’t. Nice deep pockets. One of the best purchases from LL Bean in quite some time,e,g jeans pockets are small, lined jeans are cords are not as good as 5-10 years ago. But this jacket is great and so versatile. And I was pleasantly surprised at warmth for such a lite fabric. Also very good wind breaker. Just what I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Jacket I first bought a medium size but it was too fitted and didn't allow for any layer underneath, so I returned it for a large. Much better fit with room for extra layers. Jacket is very comfortable and looks good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmth without bulk!! I was pleasantly surprised how warm this thin jacket was. Granted I probably won’t wear it if we get those single digit days with wind. But it’s working with our current winter and so much nicer to drive with this on. Only wish it wasn’t quite so form fitting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poorly sized Love the jacket, especially the smooth look versus puffy jackets. The hip/seat is way too snug in this jacket, especially with a one way zipper. I tried the large and it fit perfectly in the top and sleeves but was far too snug in the hips. I also tried the extra large and it fit comfortably around the hip/seat but the top and sleeves were far too loose and baggy. Would work well on a very slim person but most definitely not made with pear shaped women in mind.
