Rated 5 out of 5áby cavesar Nice fit, need to order one size up for layering
Again the LL Bean sizing is getting trimmer. I ordered one size up to fit over an Pathfinder Soft-Shell Jacket/Vest or PrimaLoft Packaway Jacket. And in warm weather I can wear it over a shirt without it being too bulky.
If I was planning to wear over a bulkier top layer I would order two sizes up.
Good thing only the Burnt Orange/Cayenne matches the Soft-Shell Jacket and Vest I already have. If the Green was two tone to match the Soft-Shell Jacket/Vest that are on sale .... "We are going to need a BIGGER gear room."
As I noted about sizing in my review of the Soft-Shell vest - Like much of the LL Bean outerwear the sizing is now "athletic," not sized to wear over a heavier layer. So the Large I ordered fits perfectly over my Medium LL Bean fleece jacket and vest from a couple of years ago. Or my Large PrimaLoft Packaway jacket and vest.
Too bad our big rainy days were just before I got this jacket, I will have to wait and see how "really dry" I stay. But then I always pocket/pack a 30 or 55 gal drum bin liner as a plan E(mergency and vapour barrier) just in case.

Rated 1 out of 5áby RESJR78 Good fit but failed pretty quickly
I bought one of these jackets to replace a Bean Stowaway Goretex jacket that had started to leak. The fit of this jacket was good and the reviews that I read indicated it would be a good waterproof rain jacket. I used it a couple of times on fishing trips in 2014 and it worked pretty well. But during the winter the lining began to crack and fail and when I took it on a fishing trip to Canada this year it leaked like a coarse sieve. This one is going back to Bean for a return as it should not fall apart so quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Spiritwind Not waterproof
We bought a set of rain gear well in advance to use on a Grand Canyon rafting trip this past May. Turns out they were expensive and useless. One day we were rafting through a downpour and we were soaked and close to hypothermia as the cold rain soaked right through these and we may as well not have worn them. These might be good for a quick shower but don't depend on these for anything where it is really wet. Just wish I could get my money back!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Boages Uncomfortable
The TEK2.5 waterproof system may work well, but I did not wear the jacket in the rain to verify. The lining was too hot on bare skin and that's why I deem it uncomfortable. Another person may not have the same problem and that is why I could recommend this item to a friend. I really wanted to keep the jacket for all other reasons, but could not bear the feel of that lining.

Rated 1 out of 5áby MichiganMatt not waterproof
This would be a great rain jacket; if only it was waterproof. I took the Trail Model Rain Jacket backpacking on the Michigan Manistee River Trail. I wore it for a half a day in the rain; the jacket only seemed to repel water for minutes until water was soaked through to my shirt. I have had a lot of LL Bean items over the years; this is the first one I was extremely disappointed with. This jacket should be discontinued and reengineered to meet Bean standards.

Rated 2 out of 5áby woodmanofwarvalley Runs small, order next larger size for layering.
My body is certainly not that of a catalog male model.
I found that this rain jacket is cut extremely small for the size listed
and does not compare by size to LLBean shirts and other jackets.
I guess that is why it is on sale.
There is no room for layering under it.
Returned for credit

Rated 5 out of 5áby pkbrando All it should be
Comfortable and waterproof.
That's what I had hoped for -- I was looking for something light weight and easily packable for traveling, and this fills the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5áby cozymysterymom perfect
this jacket is lightweight and waterproof. Perfect for on the go, you can roll it up and fit it in a bag. My whole family has one. It has a slim fit that the older kids like.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HappyInAsheville0001 Comfortable, great fit, perfect
My wife and I purchased this Trail Rainwear and love them. They are light, waterproof, comfortable, and made very well. We use them all the time but got them for hiking trails in the Mountains around Asheville and the Great Smokey Mountains. Like everything else we have purchased from LL Bean, we expect to be wearing these for many years. Thank you again LL Bean. Russell & Barbara
