Rated 5 out of 5áby Jaga Waterproof
Bought this jacket in the winter to wear over my jacket to keep me dry. It kept me very dry. Now it's warming up and it's very light so it's good for warm wet weather. It's breaths well enough to were during the summer. This is my first goretex coat and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LetItRain913 Truly a Waterproof Coat - An Excellent Garment
Recently, I decided that I should walk to work and back each day. It's an hour each way. To deal with the rainy days I began a search for a waterproof rain coat and pants. I've had other rain coats and pants that leaked around the seams and wouldn't really keep me dry.
Today, I was able to test this Gore-Tex Stowaway Jacket and Gore-Tex pants and I can confirm they definitely kept me dry. The coat itself is very light, the design must be well thought out for it to perform the way it did today, the seams are extremely well constructed. They don't leak at all. The hood tucks away around the collar so when you don't need it, it is out of the way. I am very impressed with the design and manufacturing of this coat. It certainly has surpassed my expectations and it was a pleasure to walk home in the rain today. I was completely dry when I arrived at my destination.
Thanks LLBean, you have provided the garment I was looking for, need and wanted. This jacket combats the rain better than any jacket I have ever worn. I am more than confident that this coat will stand up to the heaviest of rain.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MInCincy Nice but a little short.
I read the reviews that said this jacket was a little short and ordered the tall version. I'm glad I did. The tall seems just right. Great in the early spring time wind and rain.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Manhattoe Nice jacket, but be careful
I purchased this in yellow/gold and wish I had gotten a darker color. The light color shows dirt quickly and it's difficult to get it clean once stained. This leads to more frequent washing and,over time, the jacket has definitely changed color, becoming less vibrant.

Rated 2 out of 5áby sparkoo no double zipper is a bummer
I have an older model of this jacket with the double zipper which I find to be a necessity and was very bummed with the new version which is shorter - unhappily and has no double zipper.Boo hoo. Beans is usually very good a not messing with success so the shortened length and single zipper are unhappy changes that will make me take even better care of the old model. The newer model is not an all year round jacket like the old model can be with enough clothes under it. I'm disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5áby noisy Noisy Jacket?
I am sure this jacket meets are the specs included in the description, but the material that is made from is very noisy. I bought for my husband to wear hunting and it is too loud to take into the woods.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Goodhue An Outstanding Investment!
Simply put,the Stowaway Jacket with Gore-Tex is one of the very best products offered by LL Bean! I've owned 2 of these rain jackets for many years and I always reach for them on a rainy day. This is a year-round jacket,not too heavy for the summer and great as the top layer in cold weather. (Of my 2 jackets,one is a Medium,the other a Large for use as an outer layer. - I am 6ft,160 lbs.) Don't let the price scare you off! This jacket is far and away better than any other rain jacket on the market,and with proper care lasts forever! ~Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect All Weather Jacket
Quality jacket. Wasn't sure about sizing ( 6'2 170 lb ) Got Large
Tall. PERFECT. Allows nicely for LL Bean Down Vest. Without
vest still great fit. Looks great and comfortable. Looking forward
to testing as rain gear. Worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5áby forkintheroad dry as a bone
Bought this for a recent trip to Ireland, wanted something very rain proof. It kept me dry as a bone in severe wind and rain during an Irish winter. I was very impressed. The velcro strip on the hood to keep it from falling over your face is an excellent feature. I would give it five stars if it had more pockets. There are only the two side pockets. An outside or inside chest pocket would have been great for smaller items since the two side pockets are pretty much taken up with hat and gloves. It was comfortable at 30 F with cotton T-shirt and sweater underneath. For colder temperatures you could layer more or get one of the quilted insulating vests Bean sells.

Rated 4 out of 5áby TruthIsFreedom Nice windbreaker and light rain jacket
This is a very comfortable jacket that runs true to size for LL Bean products, which means generous cut with room for other layers, as it would typically be worn. The jacket is a little lighter than I was expecting but it still works as desired. The zipper and pockets are well made and finished.
