Women's Ultralight 850 Down Sweater Coat is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 252.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The PERFECT Coat I live in Michigan and have always hated bulky coats that don't transition well to varying temps. I would opt to not wear a coat and freeze instead of wearing one and then sweating to death in the car or grocery store. Then last winter I found this coat and it is the absolute perfect coat for me! It was 4 degrees this morning and I was toasty warm in it. I transitioned to my car and had the heat up to 74 degrees and was still comfy. I can walk around the grocery store with it on and not get too hot. Plus it's lightweight and I get a ton of compliments on it. I love it so much! I need to get the other colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Practical Coat Ever I am just loving this coat! It's super lightweight but it keeps me warm and comfy. It's the most practical coat I have ever owned because, it can worn with a dress, skirt, pants, jeans, leggings and still look nice. I can wear it for all three New England seasons. It's water resistant so on those cold rainy or sleeting days, I just pull up the hood and go. It dries quick and still keeps me warm. Driving in the car is perfect because the down keeps my body at a perfect temperature, making it comfortable to leave it on. Zipper can be zipped from bottom up to loosen up while sitting too. It's perfect and stylish. I'm so happy with my purchase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, poor design Looks pretty good at first, fits well, and is a warm coat, however, the down has relentlessly been shedding since the first time it was worn. Feathers are coming through the outer shell constantly. This looks very poor to have feathers protruding from your coat, and it is a very embarrassing quality of merchandise for the LLB brand. Feathers need to be preened from the fabric to keep it free of protruding white feathers, and the feathers also end up stuck all over your other clothing. At this rate, in one season, this coat will be a nearly empty shell. After barely two-months of light use, this item will be returned for a refund. =(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice coverage, warm, great for travel Took it to Iceland and Denmark in April and it was really needed! The Good: Item was great for travel, packed up light and small. It was warm and a great wind breaker. Longer length was nice as it kept my upper legs warm, and hood was useful as I don't like wind blowing down my back. Pockets good size and zipped closed. Size was appropriate, although I went up a size or two so I could layer underneath. The Bad: We had a rainy day, and the rain totally penetrated all the little seams and I was soaked. AND then I smelled like a wet chicken. It did dry fairly quickly on the vents of the car, but still had the residual smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly warm I had been looking for a waterproof parka for my every day commute to the office - something professional looking but still waterproof and warm. This coat fit the bill! I love the hood for those suddenly windy days, and the sleeves are tight fitting around the wrists, which keeps the cold out. The zippered pockets are essential for me too. I can sometimes be a petite (I'm a tad under 5'4"), but I ordered the regular size XS because I wanted to get more length. It fit perfectly. It's stylish and modern but still very lightweight and surprisingly warm, even in 20 degree Boston temps last week. I couldn't be happier with it. (Well, maybe if the pockets were lined).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Saw it, and Had to Have it! I stopped a woman on the street and told her I loved her coat! She said, 'LL Bean! You can have one, too!' and so I did. I just love the styling of the seams that create a nice waist and have a little flare too. The zippers go top to bottom, and bottom up, which is nice, especially when driving. The Ultra Light 850 Down Sweater Coat is so light, but the fabric blocks the wind and your body heat makes it warm, or, it feels that way to me. I just discovered that it folds up and tucks into a neat little package formed by the hood. Everything about it is cute, stylish, and I just had to have it! I bought the aqua, which goes great with grey hair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat! Needed a lighter weight coat for comfort..I have thicker down coats for my winter weather in Maine, but, they are so big and bulky when I am driving and shopping. I read the reviews on this coat, bought it and just lovel it...It was 40 degrees this morning and was very surprised how warm and comfortable it was...I ordered a 1x because I wanted alittle more room than a usual large which I take...Glad I did..I was much more comfortable in the 1x..More tummy and hip room than a large...I can’t wait to see how warm it is when the temps drop to our normal 10 - 20 degrees here in Maine...The length is perfect...Got a lot of looks with this coat on ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Love: the 850 'sweater' coat I adore this coat as well as all my family and friends who have ALSO purchased one! This covers me in the plane or train, in the snow and rain and fog, and while reading a book. I don't get how it can be warm, with some layers under, in the freezing cold and not too hot when I'm snuggled in the arm chair. Amazing coat. Truly amazing. It also feels great on because it's so incredibly light, soft, and the fabric isn't noisy or shiny. Love it. A number of my friends and family who have purchased this coat as a result of seeing it on me is the true test of a great product and the highest praise.
