Rated 5 out of 5 by BelleSouthe great fit
I purchased this for my great-nephew, age 5, and it is absolutely the best jacket I have gotten for him. He is small and it just has enough room to grow. He is hot-natured, like most boys, and likes the light-weight warmth of this jacket. Plus the hood fits snug to his head without blocking his vision. I wish I had a built-in visor on my hoods! And we both like the zip pockets - I don't have to worry about him losing as much stuff.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JenG5150 Zipper Malfunction
This coat fits great and is perfect for weather down to freezing. We ordered this coat and immediately noticed that the zipper malfunctioned. It would come unzipped at the bottom each time my son wore it. So, we did an ez exchange to get another coat and it has the same problem. I am now in the process of returning the second coat for a full refund. For the price of this coat, I shouldn't have to go to this much trouble. It is not characteristic of LLBean.

Finding a practical,yet stylish jacket in the eyes of an 8 yr old girl is not easy especially for Dad but this jacket gets her stamp of approval.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pahomeschoolmom finally a WARM rain jacket!
I love the fleece lining in this jacket as usually when it's raining here, it's chilly too. The sizing is generous, my almost 8-yr-old daughter's current jacket is a size 5-6 and it still fits her! I believe I got it when she was 6. It washes beautifully as well, actually if I act fast I can usually just swipe the stain off with a damp rag. My only regret is I have no one to pass it down to since it's still in like-new condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KeeperofBoys Perfect rain jacket
This jacket is extremly functional to our family. The boys wear theirs in the rain, wind and in cool days in our Michigan weather. It is lined nicely with soft material and the hood covers their heads and neck in the rain. I will continue to but these jackets for my sons until they outgrow them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCMetroAreaNana Perfect Jacket
Bought two of these jackets (Yellow and Red) for my grandsons. They are ages 5 and 7 and like their jackets very much. They have no problem with the zipper. Perfect fit. Colors are bright and vivid. The reflective area on lower back is a bonus. Keeps rain off of them and inner soft layer provides comfort. I've been searching for the perfect jacket for quite sometime...
"Thanks, L.L. Bean!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by RShields Discovery Rain Jacket, Lined
I've purchased two of these, one for each of my two children. In both cases, the construction of the jackets is excellent. There are no itchy or uncomfortable spots that rub against their skin as the jackets are lined with soft fleece. Also, I love the fact that they are a bit longer in length to help keep their seats dry. I would certainly recommend this excellent jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PortlandMomma Waterproof AND Warm
Living in Portland, Oregon where it rains most of the year, I've been searching for this jacket for a long time. It's perfect for the wet rainy days we have - not too hot, but a lot warmer than just a shell. I bought one for my 8 year old and then went back and bought two more for my 2 and 5 year olds. My Mom saw the kids new coats and requested one for Christmas. Think I'll get one for me as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BUJoeCool Perfect!!!
The lining makes this a perfect Fall or Spring jacket. It's added warmth and soft feel means that it can be used for cooler days, even if it's not raining. Now there is no need to have two jackets, one for cool days and one for the rain. I suppose it might get a little warm for rainy summer days, but we rarely wear rain jackets in the summer anyway.
My son just loves wearing it and it looks nice too. After writing this review I'm going to check to see if there is an equivalent jacket for women. If there is, I'll buy it for my wife.
