Rated 1 out of 5áby LuciV Not Weatherproof
I've been looking for a plus sized rain coat for some time. I did my homework, read reviews, and got pulled in by the 2-a-day markdown on this jacket. I like that it's lightweight and not as loud a fabric as I anticipated (I expected some crinkly noises with a waterproof jacket). Unfortunately, the first time I got to wear this was a real test -- walking 20 miles on a rainy Seattle day for a fundraising/ awareness event. By mile 1, I could tell the jacket wasn't breathable since my eyeglasses kept fogging from the bottom up due to the heat escaping at the collar. By mile 2, my arms were soaked through, and by mile 3, I had to take it off entirely and switch to one of those disposable emergency ponchos. Not what I expect from L.L. Bean.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Verified Reviewer Trail Model Raincoat
Pretty but flimsy. Read the washing instructions...I've never owned a raincoat that I "might" have to iron. No wonder it was on sale! I'd return it but I needed a raincoat for a trip - no time to return and find another one. Big Letdown.

Rated 3 out of 5áby regie nylon rain coat
Purchased this coat three years ago, loved the coat just what i was looking for. Unfortunately it is no longer water proof and the lining in the hood is disintegrating. I have been an LLBean customer for 40 years this product does not live up to the standards i'm accustomed to from LL Bean look elsewhere

Rated 2 out of 5áby ELDShopper No style or shape
I've been searching for a replacement for my well worn LLBean Gore-Tex parka that I bought about 15 years ago. I was hoping this would be it. But no - this raincoat is basically shapeless and baggy.The fabric and weight, however, would be good for travel.
I normally wear a Petite Small or XS, depending on the item... the PXS in this coat is too large, though I could live with it if the overall fit were better. At a minimum, I'd suggest an inner draw cord at the waist to give the coat some shape.
So back it goes and I will continue my search!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Tanina Flimsy and doubtful breathability
I was desperate to replace a beloved Gortex raincoat bought a long time ago that has kept me dry for many years, in all seasons including summer, thanks to the breathability of its mesh lining. I was keen to receive the Trail Model Raincoat coat to replace this valuable piece. Unfortunately, the Tail Model is nowhere near what I expected. I do not want the plastic-like lining anywhere near my skin during a summer hike; it will definitely make me perspire, as others have reviewed. Furthermore, the mesh pockets feel too flimsy to keep any weight in them without tearing. I am returning the coat and my search continues. Maybe I will try the H2OFF coat, if it is light enough...at double the price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby sierravista Best coat for Iceland, Ireland, etc!
I purchased this coat for a recent trip to Iceland, and I am so glad I did!
This coat saved me many times during my 6 day trip in Iceland. It was great - I stood in waterfalls, withstood wind gusts of 40-50 miles per hour, snow squalls, and beautiful, cool, sunny days as well. Another great feature: it packs down to almost nothing if you roll it up. I placed it rolled up in my tote for the international flight.
I told several other people to purchase this coat before the Iceland trip. We all bought the Trail Model Raincoat - and all of us were so happy we did!
Thank you LL Bean for a terrific product at a reasonable price!!! Can you make it other colors? I would get another one if it came in more color choices!!!
Love this coat!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Curlysue529 Trail Model Raincoat
I received this as a gift as an "extra" raincoat to leave in my car. I loved the concept as it was lightweight, kept me dry and was a good length. I lost weight and it was too large; tried to replace the french blue/periwinkle but have never seen it again. Please bring that pretty color back.

Rated 4 out of 5áby suki99 So far...so good.
Just received this today in the mail. It's a perfect jacket for our trip where I might need a lightweight rain jacket. Blue color is great. Zipper was difficult to "get going." Bottom zipper will be good to unzip when sitting down otherwise it would be too tight. I ordered a small based on the size chart. I will be wearing a sweatshirt underneath for warmth. I have very narrow shoulders and the medium would have been way too bulky across the shoulder and chest areas. I wish it had a slight flair to it from the waist down for extra roominess in that area. Also cannot fold the jacket into the pouch as shown on display page. It's way too small. That is one reason why I chose this rain jacket for travel. Can someone help me out with this please. Has anyone ever completed this task?? Thank you. Am looking forward to wearing this.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Mapreader travels well and protects
This fits comfortably over a sweater and blazer jacket, Besides being waterproof and comfortable, the dual zipper permits you to zip up from the bottom, making it more comfortable when sitting down. The length and color are good. I am pleased with the size, pockets, high collar. It is a good accessory for travel since it can protect in several climates with layering.

Rated 3 out of 5áby DanskerK Just what I needed Except for...
The fabric, the length, the color, all lovely BUT, sadly and annoyingly, I anticipate needing to send this back within the year because of a broken zipper just waiting to happen! The zipper toggle at the bottom of the closing is nowhere near as sturdy as is needed for the length (which is perfect) of this coat: the closing mechanism should have been snaps or a really big toothed zipper. Size wise: I am 5'3" & 126lbs so followed others advice and bought a small: too small with a bulky sweater under. Petite medium was just perfect.
