Rated 3 out of 5 by Blueridgegirl Strange color?
I so wanted to love this jacket (b/c I ordered one last year in camel), and am a big fan of the quilted vests in the Primaloft line, but sadly I'm returning. I ordered the lavender mist color jacket in the tall size, and was expecting the color to be darker, I guess. I was kind of expecting a pretty "springy" pale lavender color, but in reality the color looks really, really washed out, barely lavender at all. From far away it would be difficult to distinguish what color it actually was, b/c it doesn't look purple. The good news is, I found it to be true to size, despite what other people have said. Unless you have really, really thick arms, I can't see why this jacket wouldn't fit you. LE: please choose some more vibrant colors for this style that are some where in between really, really washed out and florescent day glow colors!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jeege Not pleased with the jacket
I have the permaloft in the vest, silver 2x, and loved the color but the cut is somewhat big. So I ordered this jacket in the melon 1x. It ran a little small and there wouldn't be enough room for more than something light weight underneath. But the worst was the color. It is TOO BRIGHT almost a day-glo color. I do love the fabric & might consider another color in a 2x.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SEAHORSE02 Fun jacket!
Loved this jacket so much I ordered 2 - the celestial blue (beautiful dark blue) & the fuchsia (a lovely wine) with the blue in reg. large & the fuchsia in XL & both fit. The blue is just the little tighter across the back but both fall just at the bottom of my rear lengthwise & with the slight tapering in on the sides, this makes a very flattering silhouette on my 5'7" 170lb. frame. Being really warm-natured, this jacket is all I need unless it gets below freezing as it is surprisingly warm to be so truly lightweight. Utterly comfortable & sharp looking...considering ordering a 3rd color for the fun of it!

This jacket is really nice, it fits great, and I love all of the colors. It is nice enough to wear just about any place. We do travel a lot, so it perfect. I think I am going to buy another one in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CharBabe A Wonderful Jacket!
I love this jacket so very much! I am very thankful that Lands End offered this jacket in a tall. It fits perfectly. It is not too tight in the arms, but then again I don't have "thick" arms. It is very flattering and very warm, surprisingly so. I have two of them -- the black and the fuschia. I don't see a need for the packable feature, but it's not an inconvenience that it's there. Please continue to provide clothes in TALL. Thanks so very much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GypsyDetroit Loved it 98%, enough to order at 2nd
This jacket is fantastic except for the sleeve length. When I reach my arms out, the cuffs stop 3 or more inches from my actual wrist. But, that's not an uncommon issue for me. I love how the material looks and feels, plus I love how easy it is to pack it into its little pocket. I bought one in Raspberry to add to my car's emergency pack and found myself pulling it out to wear it a lot over the past couple of weeks. I'm ordering a second in Mauve to wear regularly this spring.

I initially bought this in the regular small (which was too big) in the fushia (which is bright but has an awful lining), then in the silver frost (which was just blah). The regular small was overall too big (too high a collar, sleeves too long and way too boxy--a first for jackets from lands end), I'm 5'1 and generally a size small or 6 but I have broad shoulders. So those all went back. I bought the petite small in black and while I like the fitted look through the waist, the sleeve is short as is the shoulder allowance. So, I ordered the lavender mist in the Medium Petite. Well, at least now I have the size figured out (it's a little big but fits better than the regular small and allows more room through the shoulder and sleeve than the Petite Small.) Unfortunately, the lavender mist has that cheap gray looking lining and is really wash of color that is too pale pink looking for my taste. So this too will go back as I keep an eye out for the Neptune Blue to come back in the Petite Medium. Darn

I so wanted to love this jacket, but I ended up returning it. It was too snug in the arms, no way you could put it over even a thin sweater. The arms were also too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigdogzog Neptune Blue Is The Bomb!
And should be a mandatory color for all redheads... Overall, the fit of this jacket is as expected. It is a little boxy, but the length is great. I've worn it several times now and love the fact that it can be packed away in it's compact pocket. It's warm enough for cool Winter days and large enough to layer for cold days. It doesn't do a great job at cutting the wind, but looks great and keeps me toasty otherwise.

I don't know why they call this a spring jacket, as it is the same weight as the winter one.
The only reason I didn't give it full stars is because the sleeves are a little tight.
