Men's PrimaLoft Packable Insulated Jacket
Husband's new favorite jacket
My husband has quite a few heavy winter jackets, mostly with hoods. Now that the weather is warmer, he's living in this jacket on walks. He says it's super comfortable and lightweight. He is 5' 10 " and weighs 168. The medium is a perfect, fairly close, fit. It runs true to size, but if you are between sizes, you probably should order up a size.

Both the regular & talls run small!
I had purchased jackets in both the regular and tall sizes to see if anything would fit my growing teen. They both seemed to run short in the arms. My son is very thin so I can't attest to the body portion - but shoulder-wise they also seem to not have the right amount of room. Both were returned. Sad as I had wanted to purchase a packable coat for use on trips & vacations.

I just bought this jacket two days ago, since it was on clearance at LE Dept in Sears. What attracted me to this jacket was its lightweight design and high warmth fill. I didn't even know it packed inside the pocket, until I was pulling off the tag, then read about it here. However, its portability did draw me in. This is great for travel and I think it will come on handy on an upcoming trip to the Oregon Coast. The wind, dampness and temps are more intense up there and it'll be nice to have something that won't take a lot of room.
Once I've tested it out completely, I'll try to update this review. For now though, it looks promising to get 5 stars. If it doesn't work out, LE's return policy will cover it, so I can't go wrong.

Weird fit in the chest
This was not a good fit. I am generally a small, but this jacket tugged in the armpit/chest area in an uncomfortable way. I am returning it.

Great for my teen son
Bought this a little big to allow room for growth and layering for my teenage son. He loves the lightweight aspect and the fact that the jacket is simple and warm enough for our Mid-Atlantic winters. He says it generates a lot of heat, but for now he can still layer if needed. Bought it on end of season sale, but is probably still a great buy at regular price.

extra large too large.
Nice lightweight jacket, but way too large. Normally wear extra large but this extra large was too large. Decide to go with a little heaver jacket so I traded it in for the very popular squall jacket.

Wind blowing hard and still warm.

Simply said, this jacket turned out to be exactly as advertised and I highly recommend it if the style and cost are right for you.
I live in Tucson, Arizona where a lightweight, insulated jacket actually comes in handy when out and about on cool winter evenings, but my primary reason for purchasing the jacket was in preparation for a trip to the frigid east coast in February. I didn't want to lug a bulky heavy winter coat around airports, preferring instead the lightweight look and style of PrimaLoft, The medium was a perfect fit for me, allowing me to wear it with or without multiple layers underneath very comfortably, depending on the weather. Simply stated, I have nothing but praise for this product and it was a good choice for my particular needs. I expect this jacket to be a favorite companion for years to come.

My son loves it! "Pack-ability" is great!
Meets our expectations for warmth and fit and receives endorsement from our teen!

Nice lightweight, warm jacket
Bought this as a gift for my husband in a tall size. He has commented several times about how warm, light and comfortable this jacket is. He loves the burgundy colour too.
My only criticism is that for a tall size, it could have used at least another inch in the sleeve length and maybe had the sleeve edges a bit tighter. He is very happy with it.
