    Thumbs down LL Bean Mountain Classic Anorak :(

    I had some money to spend at LL bean for the holidays and decided to pick up a classic jacket. The Mountain Classic Anorak. I always loved these jackets. I remember a buddy of mine had one in the 80s. It was heavy duty and well built. He had that jacket for years and years.

    I got mine a few weeks ago and was really disappointed. The material was thin and cheap. The fit (was advertised as generous for layering) was horde. Very tight. So just a heads up anyone wanting to get this jacket. It's a stinker. At least LL bean has a great return policy.

    Off to look for a better wind breaker/anorak.

    get the green pepper pattern and sew it out of whatever you like, fit and form will be the way you want it.

    or there is a few of the old sweedish surplus running around, I think I have 12 bucks in mine (they USED to be 2 for $18.00 plus some time on the inkle loom to trim it out)

    This is the best option I have found for a cotton/blend anorak.

    I have had one for about 6 months and it's held up well. US made. I got mine on sale from Sportsmans guide and it's in Tiger Stripe Camo. The above link is the only other source I have found for these.

    I got some items from LL Bean last holiday season, not the most recent. A flannel shirt, their hurricane shirt (I think that's what they call it) and two fleece items.

    I really liked the fleece pullover and vest but like you, did not care for the fit of the shirts. They were baggy around my chest/mid section but quite short in the sleeves. I still wear them and otherwise the quality seems pretty good.

    But for the money spent (fortunately all were gifts) there are certainly cheaper options.

    More the likely, but I never looked. I was just surprised how thin the material was. Useless IMHO
