Rated 2 out of 5áby HaileyC Trail Model Rain Jacket
I have always known LL Bean for their quality, so I was extremely disappointed with this jacket. I have a job that requires me to be outside regardless of the weather, so I was looking for a good quality waterproof jacket. I wore this jacket only once in a light drizzle and was soaked through in an hour. This jacket could maybe be advertised as water resistant, but NOT waterproof as it states. It gets 2 stars only because the one good thing is LL Bean's great return policy.

Rated 4 out of 5áby imdreaming Orange!!!
I like this jacket a lot. The fit is great. The weight is just right. But, the orange is brighter than traffic cone orange. I could hunt deer and be safe. The color sample on the page is much more subdued than the actual thing. I'm still deciding whether to return it for a more quiet color. I may keep it and use strictly for bicycle riding. It's certainly not appropriate for hiking (for which I got it).

Rated 5 out of 5áby gottabecomfy Love this rain jacket!
I've read many of the reviews about the complaints of this jacket. I've had one for over 2 yrs now, and have had no problems with any of the quality, and I stay dry. I primarily use it for riding my horse and have been poured on many times, and stayed dry. Also out exercising, same...rained on, and stay dry. Mine looks brand new. Just ordered a new one in the bold pink, size Large. I am 5'2", 130lbs...I like to layer if necessary and the L gives me that room. Great jacket for the price. I love mine, and it really hasn't had "dainty" treatment.

áby drea9923 I really wanted to love this jacket
This is the second Trail Model Jacket that I've tried. I returned the first one for the same issue and just hoped that it was a one-time defect because I really wanted to love this jacket. Unfortunately, the second jacket didn't fair any better and the lining near all the stitching has started to crack and flake off just like the first. There is definitely something wrong with the design/construction of this jacket and for those of you who live in an area where a rain coat is a must (I'm in the PNW) and used year round, then this coat may last you a year... if you're lucky. I will (sadly) be returning yet another jacket and I won't be buying one from LL Bean again.

Rated 5 out of 5áby OwlPancakes Great Rain Jacket
This jacket has a great fit for a plus size figure! I am very happy with my purchase. It is very hard to find outerwear in plus sizes, that is sized correctly. I am big in the chest and hips, and this jacket fits well over both with room to spare for layering. I will definitely be be purchasing all of my outwear here!

Rated 4 out of 5áby LLinFLA Daylilly = Safety/Hunter/Prison Orange
I really like this jacket. The weight is perfect for hot, muggy Florida heat, which really surprised me. The only thing is I wish I hadn't chosen the daylilly orange. It seems like it would be a cute choice, but there's really nothing special about this orange. Comments range from it being a crossing guard jacket to prison wear. But at least my kids would be able to find me in a crowd!

áby TomT20 2nd one, same problem
My daughter has had 2 of these over the years, and after a couple years of infrequent wear and washing (no dryer), the lining peels out from the inside of the jacket around the neck. Called today, and they said it hasn't been changed but I'm welcome to exchange it or get a refund. I don't want to buy the same problem again, but the next level of jacket costs almost twice as much. For as much as she wears it, can't justify a $150 raincoat.
I see other reviewers have the same problem, LL Bean please fix it!
If the lining gets fixed I'd buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5áby MIoutdoors Seemed chincey for the price
While the color and fit of the jacket was great, I felt like the fabric was so lightweight it seemed cheap and likely to rip/tear easily. It's also very loud and scrunchy sounding when you move. I thought the jacket would be a little more heavy duty, especially for the price, so I'll be returning my jacket for a different option.

Rated 1 out of 5áby AnnoyedByThis Trail Rain Jacket
I purchased the Trail Rain Jacket in red last Spring.
I really like the jacket but after only two seasons...1 Spring and 1 Fall...of very infrequent use, the inner lining (plastic) is peeling.
Very disappointing for a jacket that cost $90.00 and I've only worn enough to have to launder it twice.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Jana2 Good for spring or fall
I just purchased this jacket for a rainy baseball game in philadelphia. It was a super misty day with no serious rainfall or gravity to the rain. However, it was super windy so it made for colder conditions. Temps got as low as 39 degrees and it was a very cold evening for spring weather. The jacket is pretty waterproof and lightweight. I am normally a large size 10-12 in tops and I was swimming in the large when I tried it on. Once I put the medium on it was perfect and still had room for layering underneath. I paired this jacket with my North Face fleece summit series jacket and to be honest I was still cold! My hands were freezing even in the pocket all night long. I really should have brought gloves which would been the best option, but I did begin to shiver all over due to overall cold and not just from my torso area. It was very comfortable and I love the black because it goes with everything. I like how spacious it is and doesn't cling to my hips like some other rain jackets. I'm curvy and not particularly in shape so I like being able to hide what I can! lol I would say this jacket is better for warmer and possibly humid rainy days where you just need to be dry. Or you can be prepared with better layers, unlike I was! I only gave 4 stars because it is a little expensive for such a thin fabric that just protects against wind and rain. BUT comparing it to most rain jackets on the market, this is considered affordable and the logo isn't flashy and in your face like other outdoor brands. Overall, decent jacket and will protect against wind and rain. It is just a shell.
