Rated 1 out of 5áby RufusRed Overpriced, Awkward Hood
This raincoat has a hood with a sort of baseball cap like brim that so doesn't work. It kept falling into my eyes, blocking my vision no matter how I tried to lay it on my head. It's waterproof and the cut/fit isn't bad but for the price, with all due respect, I love LL Bean, it was like a glorified garbage bag. This product needs to go back to the drawing board.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TaraSMC A must have
When my boyfriend saw my raincoat (I have the women's yellow), he decided that he had to have one too. It's light weight and long with room to move. It doesn't pull when we sit in the car. We love the zippered pockets so that my belonging stay dry. The hood is perfect. I was going to get the lined one but decided that it would be too warm for mild fall or spring temperatures. Instead, we wear a fleece under it. Yesterday it was rainy and raw out. I had on my ski jacket (also LLBean) and then the raincoat. I was warm and dry. The fact that the raincoat stuffs into its own pocket was a plus.

Rated 2 out of 5áby NCmountainwear Disappointing performance
I bought this raincoat for my husband last Christmas, and since they are still selling the exact product this winter, I'm giving an update to my previous review right after the purchase. My husband does NOT like this raincoat. Even with the TALL size, it hits right above his knees, and channels all the rainwater running off the coat right onto his slacks. He ends up drenched from the knees down. He also doesn't like the hood, because you have to wear it, or it flops open behind your head collecting water. It can't be taken off, nor is there a zippered pocket to stash it in, like the parkas have. He much prefers to wear a rain hat he already had. Finally, as many other customers have said, LLBean zippers are a bugger. We both often struggle with the zippers on our LLBean parkas, and this raincoat is also a problem. All in all, I wasted my money buying this raincoat. It's not up to Bean quality.

Rated 5 out of 5áby fish4321 lenght of coat
you should consider making this coat in an extra long model. your "tall" model just comes to the knee of an average height male.

Received coat but had a slight problem with the zipper. I contacted LL Bean and they sent a new one out that day. When the new one arrived it was amazing how easy and efficient LLBean's Customer Service took care of me. I highly recommend the Rain Jacket and Kudos to their Customer Service. Thanks LL. Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Bonnie876 Too hot
Thought I was buying a light weight summer raincoat for my husband that would pack and layer well for traveling. It is light weight but the lining makes it very warm- definitely not for southern climates. Very disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5áby atexasborndane Not really waterproof, as the zipper doesn't work
I am in the process of returning this waterproof Trail Model Rain Coat because try as I might, I cannot get the front zipper to work. Nor does it have snaps - only small velcro patches which are difficult to line up and are not of much help.
I bought it to replace my old LL Bean Stowaway Raincoat which has been great, but has completely lost its waterproof quality over the years.
Unless the delicate zipper on the Trail Model Rain Coat works, it's useless.

Rated 4 out of 5áby chucker219wasp great fit and waterproof but poor zipper
the jacket is great in every way except for the zipper.
trying to get the zipper started is very frustrating, I got wet because I didn't zip it because of this problem and then it rained while I had it on.TO LATE.
to bad that such a great item is almost ruined by a simple zipper.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Mn1952 Defective zipper
I needed a longer raincoat to replace a jacket that is wearing out. I was hoping that the zipper issues mentioned in prior reviews had been corrected. It still hasn't. I couldn't get the bottom ends of the zipper correctly aligned; if I forced the zipper handle up, then it became almost impossible to unzip at the end. I would not want to be struggling with that zipper in the rain, and I don't think that I could force it more than a dozen times before it broke.
I would suggest replacing the zipper with several snaps, and replacing the small Velcro strips at the edge of the flap with one continuous Velcro strip, top to bottom. Still rain-proof, and zipper problem eliminated.
