Rated 5 out of 5áby seattlekd Excellent all-purpose rain jacket!
I can't say enough about how great this jacket is for a rain jacket. It's a bit on the pricey side for a rain jacket, but well worth it if you are out in the rain a lot.
I bought this jacket for a family member last Christmas, and she loved it so much that I decided to buy myself one this year, as I recently got a new puppy who needs a lot of walking, and well, it rains a lot here in Seattle!
I normally wear a size 8-10, and am of medium height, and the size medium fit me perfectly, with just enough room to wear a sweater or fleece jacket underneath, but not too much room. The dark royal blue is a good color that blends well with most of my wardrobe. The jacket is well made, with a good hood and velcro on the sleeves. I have received a number of compliments on the jacket, which is surprising for a raincoat!

Rated 5 out of 5áby MyOpinionOnThis I am loving this jacket!
I wanted to replace a windbreaker that I had but was leery to buy this because I was afraid it would be too short on me. I am 5'4" and wear a size 8 top, usually. I do like a comfortable fit on my jackets, never too tight or confining. I ordered the Medium and I love it! It fits a bit roomy, which is great for the times I might wear a bulkier sweater underneath, and the length comes just below my hip line. It is warm and I love the way the hood fits and covers my head without blowing off. I'd highly recommend it. In fact, my sister ordered one as soon as she tried mine on! :)

Rated 5 out of 5áby danibell compact and keeps me dry!
I bought this jacket as a replacement for one that has been with me for over ten years. Needless to say I had very high expectations, and I hoped that this one would turn out to be another great Bean product, and it really is! I am from the states, but live in Germany, and always pick up my outdoor gear whenever I am home for a visit. I've had this jacket for a little over a month now, and It certainly stands up to those rainy German days. I love that it stuffs into its own pocket, making it easy to take with me wherever, too.

Rated 5 out of 5áby UpstateMommy A keeper!
I have had my previous LLBean raincoat for over 15 years. It has served me well but I was tired of it. (Isn't it great that it never wore out before that happened!) I decided to get myself a Trail Model Rain Jacket as a replacement. I am so glad I did.
I am 5' 0" and 105 pounds. The XS fits very well. Not too long in length or in the sleeves. It quality is, as always, up to Bean standards. I can't wait to wear this one for 15 years too!

Rated 3 out of 5áby MamaUpstate Broken Zipper within 6 months
This jacket has kept me warm and dry and breaks the wind... but I just wore it as a shell biking, and the zipper popped open at the bottom! I've only had it for a few months - got during our unseasonably rainy summer.

Rated 4 out of 5áby sitkasue Great multifunctional item
I've purchased and used at least four of these in the last ten years. I like them because they are completely waterproof and yet very small when stuffed into a corner of my pack. I take one everywhere I travel including the desert where they are great windbreakers. The earlier version (of the men's, at least) had a two-way zipper, and now neither the men's nor women's versions have that handy feature - my reason for four stars instead of five.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SandraSLH Absolutely perfect!
Purchased this rain jacket for our long trip to Europe, which included Scotland and the Isle of Skye, London and Paris. In September, the weather was in the low 50s and it rained every single day. I purchased this coat in a large (I'm normally a size 10 and the medium fit well, but I wanted to layer with fleece underneath, so I opted for the large). With a long-sleeved shirt, fleece and outer rain jacket, I was warm and dry. These rain jackets saved us for our entire 3 week journey where it rained all but 3 days. Never once did I feel that the water seeped through--it also added a layer of warmth over the fleece, and even without the fleece acted as a good wind-breaker in Paris. Cannot recommend this more highly! Only wish it came in black!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Anamari1 Just what I neded
My jacket arrived yesterday. I found it to have excellent fit. I wear a size 12 and bought a large which gives me enough room to layer on cooler days. I bought it for an upcoming trip and I'm sure it will fit the bill. The royal blue is more like a navy. I would have liked something more colorful like the berry color but it won't be available till later in the year.

Rated 4 out of 5áby axelamai No Pit Zippers
I bough this jacket to replace an old one I had bought 6 years ago. I love this new jacket but the only downside is that they no longer make the jacket with pit zippers which come in handy in those humid rainy days.

Well made, comfortable. Not only keeps you dry in the rain, helps keep you warm on a brisk day.
