Rated 5 out of 5áby mgprof Terrific Raincoat - Perfect for Ireland
My wife and I bought these raincoats for a trip to Ireland over the Christmas holidays. We wore them every day, and they were terrific. They are described as "packable" and they really are - the coat rolls up and fits into the hood in a very compact, light bundle. The fabric is light in weight, but the coat is completely waterproof and the frequent brisk wind did not blow the coat to an uncomfortable degree. The closures - zippers and velcro - were well placed and worked fine. There have been comments about difficulty with the main zipper - we did not find this a problem. After a few careful closings and openings, the zipper performed well. The hood has several adjustments so it will keep you dry while allowing good vision. The men's version had an outside zippered cell phone pocket which the women's model did not have - my wife was envious. Probably LL Bean will correct that soon. In summary, this raincoat was outstanding - exceeded my hopes in every way. Would not hesitate to recommend this to a friend.

Settled on blue. Average rain ware. Like the length but have not tested against heavy rain. Where's the pouch so I can fold into it.

I bought the raincoat (in 2013) because a friend had had one for a couple of years and it seemed great.
When I wore mine in rain, I felt cold and damp from the start, but, because I had such high expectations of LL Bean, I assumed it must have been my imagination, condensation or something. Eventually, when the lining disintegrated, I realized it was an inferior product and the thing had been leaking all along. It was difficult for me to accept this, because LL Bean products are typically very, very good. Finally I have come to my senses and decided to return the raincoat.
I just looked at my friend's raincoat: it is still, after many years, in excellent condition. Evidently, LL Bean changed manufacturers after my friend bought his coat. I wonder if they've changed production details again and if the current models are better than the one I got....

Rated 5 out of 5áby Skilord Excellent Rain Jacket
This is the perfect rain jacket for skiers. Being a ski instructor I'm outside teaching in all types of weather. This jacket has kept me dry and is long enough that it covers 100% of the lower portion of my ski parka even when sitting on the lift. Excellent product!!1

Rated 1 out of 5áby EastCoastLiving Not the quality I expected from L L Bean
I own an L L Bean (women) Gore Tex rain jacket that is mid length and I love it, it even works great as a windbreaker so I wanted one for my husband but the only mid length Gore Tex for men that L L Bean carries has a lining & is too warm for just a rain coat/windbreaker so we tried this one & we don't like it at all.. The plastic is hard & feels cheap.. We returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Road Just what I needed in a rain coat.
It was a little tight but that could have been me ordering a smaller coat. It does fit good and it works fine. Everything worked including that famous sipper. That you l.l. bean.

I bought this rain coat in Feb. 2014. It's been dry in California between then and this wet winter. Now, I've been wearing it a few days a week. Today, I noticed that a place in the hood was peeling off. Today, I returned it. I have an old pre-waterproof-breathable era long slicker from a famous maker that's still waterproof and that's good for outdoors and daily town life, so I don't need a replacement yet.
