Rated 5 out of 5áby Chillyhead Keep dry
Comfortable and light weight. Looks good. Have not had a chance to test its waterproof fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5áby grandmaofAanl Zipper works!
I recently purchased this coat for my husband but had to send it back because of the zipper. I am happy to say that the zipper on the replacement works great! I can now give this coat 5 stars!

Rated 4 out of 5áby mjb5 Right Size
The raincoat is exactly the right size. Come down around the knee area. Was looking for a rain jacket that was longer than the traditional type jacket and this met that requirement. The material seems to be quite thin and since it is winter, I haven't used it yet in the rain. It does seem to be quite expensive for such a lightweight jacket. BUT, it is LLBean and one can never go wrong with an LLBean product.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Illmo Trail Model Raincoat
I wanted a longer raincoat, instead of today's short waist-ed offerings that are the norm. Despite the reviews on the zipper I decided to take a chance. I had no problems with the double zipper. It works as long as everything is in a proper straight alignment,which I suspect may be the problem with some reviewers. They could be angling the zippers instead of keeping them straight. I ordered the loden green & the color was true to the picture. Seems well made, but have yet to have rain to try it in. I do find the visor to be quirky, but adjusting the hood & a ball cap makes it work. Seems it's too stiff & needs to be more flexible. I'm 5' 8", about a solid 220#. I wear xlg in everything so that is what I ordered.. Fits good & the length hits me at the knees, which is what I wanted. I also have room for a hoodie or fleece if the weather is cooler.

Rated 4 out of 5áby grandmaofAanl A great coat, but still problems with the zipper
Bought this for my husband because he wanted a raincoat that covers his legs better. I have this same coat and love it. Unfortunately, like many other reviewers have stated, the zipper is awful!. It just doesn't want to go. I tried everything, and could not get it to zip without a LOT of work and patience. Otherwise, this is a good coat, really water resistant. I am returning and reordering in hopes of getting a better one, but, LL Bean, please take note and put a different zipper in these coats!

Rated 4 out of 5áby trainman52269 small pouch
The raincoat is nice and light weight. The hood does an excellent job. The pocket or pouch is way too small to jam the coat into. After using the pouch, the raincoat comes out all wrinkled.

Rated 1 out of 5áby TheRealBull Not As Pictured
its just a rain shell with a hood and zipper; not a jacket. It has ZERO lining. ZERO! The picture makes it look like there is a white cotton lining for SOME warmth. There's isn't. Just a fishnet-type breathable element. If it's 40 degrees and raining (like now in New England) you would still need to wear a coat under this jacket.
For what it is, not worth $90. Not even close.

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.
