Women's Classic Marinac Jacket
Heavier than I expected, but nice
More jacket than I thought it would be--thought it was flee cider.

I bought this jacket for my walks outside. I did size up so I could wear a sweater underneath. I'm 5'9", 175 lbs and bought an extra large. It does have bungee adjustments on the sides to tighten. This jacket fights the wind well.

Wish it fit better
I liked the look of the jacket, except it bunched up in the armpit area. It makes it look like it is way too big even though it fits nicely everywhere else. I would try the next size down, but it doesn't come in XS. I'll have to return it. Too bad because I liked it otherwise.

Please make in size XS!
I'm 5'3" and 36-29-37 with broad shoulders, and I ordered this in a size small. I really wish they made this in extra small, because that would have been better for me. The size small is baggy on me, but I'm going to keep it because the style of the jacket is casual, so a little looseness doesn't bother me much. The quality of the fleece is only okay, but for the sale price, I think it's a good buy. Unlike the other reviewers, I am a fan of the raglan style sleeves. The sleeves make it easy to move your arms, which I like.

This isn't the "classic" Marinac
I have an original Marinac jacket, with the set-in sleeves and inside pockets. I wanted to buy another color (getting tired of black). Now, I see that this new version doesn't have the inside pockets that make the jacket so useful for travel. Please bring them back! I can only hope that this version being on sale means a new design is on its way (with inside pockets, please?)

Please make in XS again!
I love love love my XS purple Marinac jacket bought several years ago- it's soft, warm, and zipper pockets are big enough to phone, keys, earplugs, etc. I especially appreciate the pockets during air travel. I'm afraid I will lose this and wanted a back up - but the Small I bought is WAY to big for me and feels bulky instead of wonderful. (And from reading other reviews, perhaps this new version not as lovely as the one I adore?)

Marinac Jacket - a good jacket but less so than the original
I got my Marinac jacket the year after Lands' End started offering them, and it is absolutely the best jacket I've ever had. Useful in a wide variety of temperatures alone or layered, amazingly lightweight, warm, windproof, water-resistant, washable, and also I use it in extreme cold as a layer under my down jacket. Time to replace it as the zipper has finally broken. However after reading the reviews of the current redesigned jacket, I am wondering if I should instead take it to the tailor & have a new zipper put in. Awhile back I bought another Marinac - I think it was through your business line - but it was not the same quality and the cut didn't work for me.
If Lands End feels it needs a cheaper line, then keep the current cut, but please reinstate the original quality Marinac as well. It should be one of the "evergreen" signature pieces of the Lands' End brand. The "little" things make a difference! The lining makes it easy to layer & get on & off; the inside pockets mean you're all set with hands free; the elastic all the way around the sleeve works for warmth and so does the classic stand collar with its little flap. The set-in sleeves on the original give it a sharper look. I don't think you can get a jacket like the classic Marinac anyplace else, but I guess I have to do some research now. Please reinstate it!

Needs Hood and Longer Length
I've been wearing my husband's Marinac for several years and, while I love it for the warmth and rain resistance, I'm tired of bending over and having it ride up my back to reveal my shirt and/or bare skin if my shirt became untucked. Please make this jacket longer to cover the hips and add a hood. I ordered the Polartec 200 parka thinking it would be the same thing. No, it is not and it will go back. I'll keep wearing my old Marinac until I find something else, even if it's from another company.

Liked the previous version better
Have had this "same" jacket for several seasons and loved it. I walk at 6A in all weather and this jacket, alone or with a light layer underneath has never let me down. I was a bit disappointed to find that this newer version does not have the extended inner front lining or the inside zippered pockets. I'm keeping it but I'm not sure that I will like it as much as the previous version. Not cold enough yet [TX] to test the lack of wind break lining. Why oh why did you change perfection?
