Rated 3 out of 5áby Nudelheim PLEASE! Change lining material!
This is a good jacket. But the flimsy mesh lining MUST go. My current jacket (the third of these I've owned) is barely a year old; the left-hand pocket is already useless because its bottom fouls in the (often sluggish) zipper. I've pointed out both mesh & zipper failings in the past -- but not online. I hope someone's looking/listening now. (Both mesh & zipper come in for some heat in other reviews on this page.)
I'm not an expert; but this would seem a relatively easy fix to eliminate an important flaw in what otherwise is a terrific item.

After my comment about a delamination problem, LL Bean promptly replaced the defective jacket.

After using the jacket for 10 months I noticed small spots where the inner waterproof part of the fabric was de laminating from the outer fabric. Now at the end of 11 months the delamination has increased and is significant. I wore the jacket only about half an hour a day about four times a week for about seven months of the year while walking the dog. The jacket was great until it started delaminating.

This jacket is everything it says it is. Lightweight, waterproof, warm, lots of extras like zippered pockets, Velcro for added protection against the weather, hood front keeps rain and foul weather out of face, deep pockets, snaps and Velcro on the wrists for added comfort. I chose XL men's because I am 5' tall and wanted to cover as low below the buttocks as most of the photos showed hip-length. So this item works well for men and women.

Nice jacket. Fits well. Good colors.
After wearing it twenty times or so, the silver lining in the hood began to delaminate from the shell. I used a self-adhesive nylon tent repair fabric to hold it together. That worked for about four more wearings before another area began to delaminate. Recommend discontinuing this product; it is not up to LL Bean standards.

Great lightweight rain jacket. Bought it in October at the flagship store and have used it several times since in the rain and wind. Works very well. I'm 6'-1" and 205 lbs and it fits perfectly.

Rated 1 out of 5 Guaranteed Waterproof---NOT SO !!!
Stay away from this 'so called' waterproof jacket. I was outside in light drizzly rain for 1 1/2 hours with the hood up and was completely soaked underneath the jacket. We will be returning both jackets that we purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TTA2353 Timely Christmas Present
I gave the jacket to my wife for Christmas so that she would have a confortable waterproof jacket to take to football games we attend next year. Little did i know that the jacket would be utlized much sooner than next season.
We went to Disney after Christmas and the two days we were in the parks it rained and was windy. First, the jacket was lightweight and easy to pack in a backpack to carry. Second, it was great for keeping the wind off you. Finally, it was comfortable to wear while providing excellent protection from the rain.
Great jacket and timely Christmas present.

I bought this jacket to replace my son's previous LL Bean rain jacket. We bought that one the summer before he went off to college...9 years ago and he has definitely gotten his money's worth from it. The new one seems just as great and he loves it. Lightweight so a good option for life in the South. It travels well since it packs up to a nice condensed size. Also, the option of buying a "Tall" version for his 6'4" frame is great. Thanks again LL Bean!
