Women's Waterproof Ultralight Down Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, waterproof and durable I shopped extensively for a good winter coat that was warm and durable. I love the warmth and lightness of down, but I eventually snag and tear the thin shells. If you’re like me and are a bit rough on your coat (dog walking in the woods, yardwork, etc) this is the coat for you! It’s warm and waterproof, the adjustable hood has a rim that stays put and the exterior breast pocket is perfect for my phone. One reviewer mentioned the sleeves are a bit long but the adjustable Velcro wrist tabs solve that. It is not really slightly fitted so for those of us with curves up top, there is room to breath. The only suggestion I would offer to llbean is to make the hand pockets a little deeper so that they can hold a phone more securely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect mix.... For years I’ve wanted a really good waterproof, down jacket. This is it! If you want a shapely fit, this isn’t it. It has a boxy fit, but does the job on snowy days. The hood is roomy and adjustable. The down fill is perfect. It’s a keeper....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from only coat that fit I inherited big hips from both sides of my parents! You're right, that's sad! I tried men's coats that were too long in the sleeves. I purchased the more fitted 850 coat that was snug at the hips, but this coat is just perfect!!! I can zip it up and still have a little wiggle room! I love the looks of the coat and it's very warm! Thank you LLBeran, for finally making a winter coat for a bigger hipped woman!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All of It I needed a coat to protect me from the winter elements on my city walks and rural hikes in Michigan. It was delivered just in time for our first snow storm. After a couple of hours traversing in the freezing rain and snow, I remained perfectly dry and warm. The longer sleeves and semi fitted core provides ample room and coverage during physical activity while remaining air tight - perfect for XC skiing. The black (L) version comes with a dark silver lining. Pretty cool. I’m always in a sweater and my arms slip in with such ease. Glorious. Oh, I blacked out the LL Bean logo on the front with a Sharpie. Not to worry, there’s another one on the back. A bit of overkill for me. Lastly, not a criticism rather an observation, it comes with a left handed zipper! I’m sure I’ll adjust to it just fine. ;) Great coat, hope to wear it for many winters to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but not slightly fitted I have large upper arms and often wear a large but ordered an XL in order to wear more layers or thicker clothes underneath. It is a really nice jacket and well made, comfortable. I like that it is lower in the back but I agree with the person who said it is boxy. Wish it had an inner draw cord at waist to give it a little shape. I look like I have a small pillow in front. I like the jacket but not sure I will keep it as I don't want to look pregnant at 59! Still deciding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nailed it - finally! A ski parka that works from LL Bean. All these good features work for the skier: Hood is large enough to accommodate a helmet, zipper encloses the neck and face area well, plenty of inside and outside zippered pockets, insulation provides warmth enough without multiple bulky under layers, the bit longer body length provides good coverage when sitting on chairlifts. One last improvement needed now for all your ski parkas are a sleeve zippered area to accommodate the RFID cards used at most ski mountains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for Me I love the jacket, light weight and easy to wear, great for my morning walks! I found the fit fine, I just wish it had a flap over the zipper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but not petite This coat is exactly what I wanted so I was really disappointed that it didn’t fit. The sleeves are below my fingertips when I hold my arms to my sides. It is also big in the shoulders. Thought of ordering an XS but I am afraid the sleeves would just be too long in that size as well.
