Women's Outrigger Jacket
2 outta 4
I ordered a XL in red and one in blue and both fit PERfectly (5'7" 170lbs). Liked the velcro adjustments at sleeves, the strong smooth zipper, the hood with stand out visor that others didn't care for can be great for ladies who wear glasses or shades as it keeps the rain off the specs and doesn't fall down over your face, the length is perfect to the bottom of my rear, lined with mesh, plenty of room to go over a seatshirt. There is that superfluous short elastic band at the small of the back that LE puts in so many of their jackets which serves no purpose other than making the jacket stick out in an unflattering way in an unflattering spot - please LE, reviews say please lose this useless elastic!
Now, I enjoyed the red and blue outriggers so much I decided to order a green....it swallowed me whole! Back it went. Thinking maybe there was just something wrong with green LOL - I have just ordered a conservative black and I swear, tho it SAYS women XL, it is cut for a large man.
So back it goes and I give up. Does LE realize how many sales are lost due to no uniformity in sizing?

Returned this item. Ran small for me.
The jacket was nice, but was too tight across the back.

Women's Outrigger Jacket Short Sleeves
I returned the 2x for the 3x thinking the sleeves would fit better. Wrong! Again the sleeves were too short. LE quality is not as good as previous years. Wish I could recommend this, but I can't.

I generally wear a Women's 28, have a large bust and hips, with small arms and back. This jacket just arrived in a 4x and I will wait to return it after the 5x on backorder has arrived so I can compare. On the positive side, the shoulders fit well and the sleeve and torso length are good. On the negative, the lining material feels uncomfortable against my skin with short sleeves and stuck enough to me shirt that after a 15 minute walk it had pulled the hem up from my hips to just under my bust. Definitely something wrong there. I would love about 2 inches more in the hip so on wet days the mist doesn't run from the jacket onto my jeans, and PLEASE get rid of the back elastic. On the web site I thought the concealable hood was great, but in reality no one in their right mind would wear it tucked away. It makes a very large, ugly and uncomfortable bulge behind your neck. This is the way it came, so it wasn't the way I folded it. Worst of all, the lining came with over and inch unattached to the jacket on one side. This with the fact that a shirt I recently got frayed at the collar after 3 washings is making me fear the the quality Land's End is so well known for is no more.

Luv outrigger jackets!
I have a few of these jackets. Some are fleece lined others are not. The new style with the detailed waist on the back is very nice. I bought the light blue. Another great purchase!

The jacket looks great.
I haven't worn the jacket yet, as it is for Spring or Fall around here, but it fits true to size and appears to have the features and quality I expected.

Gets my vote
I love my jacket. The color is great, the fit is perfect and I really like the weight. The only reason for not getting 5 stars is that the lining in the sleeves sticks to the clothing I am wearing and pulls out of the cuff.

Nice, trim jacket
I like this jacket. It has some nice features as listed and it's pretty trim fitting. Navy makes for a continuous look with jeans. Winter weather here is so variable, when we have those warm days when all the snow melts, this jacket is perfect. Wear it with a thin fleece pullover and even a moderately cold day is fine. Layering with a light jacket like this is great for shopping. Versatile!

Love the color!
I decided to get a red jacket after my tan one was taken by mistake from several hanging on a coat rack. It fits well and I like the fabric. I would have preferred a more substantial lining, but this is satisfactory. I haven't worn it in the rain as yet.
