Rated 5 out of 5áby IrisNClover Just what I've been looking for!
I have always wanted a black all-weather coat that looks good, but is weather resistant and has a hood. I found it in this coat! The zipper works wonderfully - I'm not sure what former reviewers ran into, but I'm known for my problems with zippers - and this one hasn't given me any. It looks great on, fits beautifully, keeps the wind and rain off. And I'm wearing it in Vermont and NYC! Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby CatskillsLover zipper always a problem
We just received this and used it twice.
We bought this to have a lightweight waterproof jacket that's easily packable. It does all these things and fits well and and goes easily over my husband's suits. We bought XL Tall and it is roomy enough. Olive green is a nice dark color.
For several years we have had trouble with LL Bean zippers -they used to be much better in the old days. They are flimsy and hard to use - not solid feeling. We wish they would use better quality zippers as they did years ago.
Other than the zipper, this seems fine.

Rated 3 out of 5áby DCOriole Two big problems
Had this for a year and a half now. Zipper never a problem. However:
1) not enough Velcro on the sleeves (small boned people can be fat), and
2) the hood fabric and lining have cracked at the base and are peeling apart.
Other wise not a bad coat.

Rated 1 out of 5áby ToddfromPR Zippers do not work. Avoid these faulty products.
Very disappointed in zipper of fleece and unfleeced models. Would not purchase these faulty products again.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ConnecticutCowboy Tops in Service
LLBean goes beyond in customer service. When I bought the Trail Model Raincoat there was trouble with the zipper on the first and the second one that they sent.
That is when the extra measure of LL Bean Customer Service kicked in. They had the warehouse people try the zipper until they got one that worked. I wore it grocery shopping today. It fit great, looked great, has a hood that fit over my Doolittle Raiders' Cap and even the side pockets have zippers to keep out the rain. There are Velcro strips as a back up to the zipper closure. It is a KEEPER!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby South1 Much improved hood on raincoat
Much improved hood on these raincoats! The older model barely covered half your head. Lightweight & waterproof. Happy with this purchase. Like the length for when the rain comes down in "buckets" here in FL! Bought this for my husband & a women's coat for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SoCalBeachcomber Just right for a light rain
My husband really likes the coat. We had one light rain and
he said it was just light enough to walk the dog comfortably.
It is a good length if you need to sit.

Rated 4 out of 5áby elbo350 Mixed Review
This purchase was really an exchange. I had bought the same raincoat previously, and it proved to be a leaky one. I gave L.L. Bean the benefit of a doubt, and made the assumption that the individual raincoat in question was simply a lemon; these things happen. The 4-star rating is not for the product, but the customer service that made the exchange easy and painless. As for the coat, the jury is still out.

Rated 5 out of 5áby hashimoto rain jacket
I love it. I ordered a man's large as I wanted to be able to put additional layers underneath. I read the previous reviews and there were some complaints about the zipper but mine works fine. There is also an adjustable strap on the hood so that worked out as well. Very pleased with the jacket. Great purchase for the price.
