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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Duse Comfortable. Waterproof, Fit great
Kept me dry for an entire day. Fit great. Velcro strap on hood needs to be a little longer. Hood keeps slipping into your eyes. The only week spot for staying dry is the zipper. Ensure the flap over zipper is over the top of the xipper

Rated 5 out of 5áby Beanfield HE 'SAID' HE DID'T WANT ANOTHER COAT
My husand said he didn't need another coat, but after this one arrived he wore it every single day.
It does need some time to dry, but it is worth it and launders nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rabbitkung the color, the length are exactly right
I bought this Trail Model Raincoat for my husband for him on our vacation.Even though we could not have it on time before we left for our vacation. When he tried it on he liked it, the length and the colo and not bulky or heavy to have it in the luggage.
I spent quite a long time to find the raincoat that he would like to have to substitute for the old one from LL Bean which he had been using for many years. Thankks again LL Bean for the good products.

Rated 5 out of 5áby KenCo Nice packable raincoat
OK, this is a nice packable raincoat. It is very light weight and well made. In my opinion, it is good exactly as stated, packability and light weight. In this regard, it is about the same as other quality, light weight coats in the same category. This is a very good raincoat for summer backpacking in the Sierra Nevada, where you need protection from the occasional rainy day. Its also ideal for travel, being one of the few that comes in a longer length. This gives it a higher score for the adventure travel crowd. That being said, it probably would not hold up for every day use. One reviewer said he got excessive shoulder wear after everyday use. I suspect he might have often had a backpack. It's just not heavy enough for every day. Like other light weight nylon jackets, you have to be careful with the zipper. It is prone to snagging if you go too fast with it. The hood is quite nice with a hard brim and an adjuster to keep it out of your face. I wear a baseball cap under this type of hood to keep it from falling foreword. I like the self pack pocket, but personally, I always fold my coats into thirds, roll it up from the bottom and tuck it in the hood. Sizing is just about right. I'm a big guy, 6' 245lbs and it fits fine. I bought the GoreTex one and had to return it because it was too small. All in all, a very nice coat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby brobert Fits and Works Great
I've had this coat several years now and it's held up perfectly. I agree with other reviewers that the hood is awkward, but I wear a baseball cap under it and it works fine. I love that it's long enough to cover my bottom. A couple of years ago I backpacked at Yosemite and was going to just bring a light rain jacket since I'd never encountered rain there before, but my brother convinced me to bring this jacket and I was very glad I did. We were in several major thunderstorm that each dropped 3-4 inches over the course of several hours and the jacket kept me dry and comfortable (well as comfortable as one can get in a pounding rainstorm).

Rated 2 out of 5áby CandorAboutProducts Hood Poorly Designed
The nylon, length and general shape of your Trail Model Raincoat is fine. But sadly, the hood on the raincoat was poorly designed. When worn normally, the visor on the hood is so low as to block all vision.

Rated 1 out of 5áby NorthernVirginiaShopper Poor quality, Do not buy.
Wife washed this according to directions in cold water on low.
Dye ran. I had to drive to Tysons Corner, Virginia to return it at an L.L. Bean store. Otherwise, I would be charged $6.50 shipping charge to return it by UPS to L.L. Bean.
