Rated 4 out of 5 by tonytherifleman Waterproof, fits well
Works as advertised. Great on a raw drizzle type of day, and I suspect it will work well during heavy rain, haven't had the opportunity yet. Stayed comfortable and could move around in it as well. I like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gmomof4 Nice and bright!
Ordered this jacket for my husband as a gift. He has started kayaking and needed a light weight, water resistant jacket. The jacket is bright orange - very visible. That made me happy. He only wished that it had more pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by live2roam Great little jacket
I brought this jacket on a kayak journey of the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior. The July air temp on the lake was cool in the morning and evening, and this jacket was just the right thing to have. It didn't interfere with paddling, was waterproof, and it packed up light and small when not in use. As an added bonus, it saved my skin on a mosquito-plagued hike across one of the islands! Well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SubmarinerNuke Keeps the water out-mostly
This lightweight jacket is good for the occasional spray and temps in the 70s and the wrist cuffs can keep the drips out if you remember to tighten them. It only has one pocket which is inconveniently placed near one shoulder and can only carry a tiny amount. The elastic drawstring on the waist does not run freely very well making it difficult to get a good seal. I bought the blue one because it matches my boat's color and it is a good match, so I guess I'm happy.

Feel and Freedom of Movement Excellent!
Wear and Tear unsure at this time; too new. The fabric has careful care instructions to prevent tearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PDXVal Nice jacket
I bought this jacket to wear while kayaking. Thanks to reliably fast FREE shipping I received this in time for a trip that coincided with a forecasted "atmospheric river event". Thankfully we only experienced the tip of the event but I got to try out the jacket in a pretty good rain for about an hour and it held up well. I was warm and dry. I feel confident it will keep me dry in similar instances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicstyleplus "A Good Deal!"
I chose this for a multi-purpose jacket and I am pleased with it.Made in the U.S.A. is a plus!!Well made..sleeves/cuffs just right for me and the sleeve cuff is exspandable,also the neck is high which I like and a good closure.A zippered pocket for essentials very handy!I have the periwinkle colour and it is vibrant!! One can wear a fleece or sweater underneath.This fits the bill for all water sports really.A good choice from L.L.Bean!Very pleased it was on sale!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cricket808285 Large neck
I just got this and it doesn't fit too badly except for the neck. The neck is very large and water would definitely get in it. Perhaps on a man this would work, but not on a woman unless she had a large neck. I will have to return this.
