Rated 4 out of 5 by DaveK1 Great jacket with limitations
This is a great rain jacket, but with limitations.
* Light weight
* Packs well (important for carry-on baggage)
*Good rain & wind protection
The not quite so good:
* The hood doesn't stow in collar -- thus jacket not proper for non-rain wear (or at least inconvenient#
* Somewhat small zipper tends to catch on fabric. Can't zip or unzip quickly. #This is the missing review star.) A larger zipper, I believe, would solve this issue.
All in all, a good buy. I would buy again, and recommend, with above caveats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TerribleTerry Really Good Raincoat Jacket!
It's lightweight & waterproof. I ride a motorcycle and this jacket is great for when I run into showers on the road or when the weather turns chilly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by drewski2 poor design
I returned jacket for the reason that there is a stiffener in the hood brim/visor area which gets contorted when the jacket is stuffed in your pack, well it has memory so when you need the hood you get this stupid visor which you can't keep out of your vision window, so the hood just doesn't work for me. You can't see this on the web page for the product. The other issue I found, but could have lived with was sizing, the XXL I bought is short in the length and sleeves and I don't have a "tall" torso. I hope LLBean pays the return shipping for this botched design.

Coat is well made and fits well. Need to be careful when zipping so zipper does not get caught on zipper flap. Can be un-zipped without much effort if caught. Have used in rain & snow-.was very dry.

I purchased this men's raincoat to get the additional length through the body that I wanted. What good is a rain jacket that doesn't cover one's rear? Great fit with extra room for layering in cold weather. Beautiful two toned red color. I thought I'd found the perfect rain jacket until it rained. My plans were to use this jacket for hiking. Went hiking & ran into rain/sleet/snow. It wasn't even a pouring rain, yet on the return to the car my shoulders felt damp. It wasn't sweat as it was freezing & we were going downhill fast. Sure enough, the areas under my pack straps were wet. Not good so back it goes.:(

Jacket is 100% rainproof. The fit is very nice and comfortable to wear. I love the light weight of the jacket.The zipper is excellent and easy to zip up without getting caught in the material.The Velcro is a nice touch to seal the jacket after being zipped up. I am very pleased with this jacket.

just went thru severe midwestern storm with heavy rain and strong winds and this jacket performed flawlessly - better fit, features and weatherproofing than a competitors high tech jacket at twice the price. Will pair this with a 200 weight fleece liner for my winter outerwear system and stretch use period to year round !

Rated 5 out of 5 by JuliB Excellent for travel- lightweight & waterproof!
Purchased this jacket for my husband at the last minute before a 2 week trip to Europe. I have owned the women's version for a number of years and also my son had one all thru Boy Scouts. It served as a nice light weight jacket for our trip- when wearing a sweater underneath (traveled in November). Weather was in the 50's- or cooler and some times ligyht rain or overcast- and unsure of the forecast for the day (we had walking tours a lot). He was even able to fit our small video camera in the pocket! It packed very well, and is not a rain jacket with a "plastic feeling"- very breathable. It also has a nice shape to it- a little longer in the back and not so "square" looking. It is a "must have" for any trip!

I bought this raincoat just before the boat show in Annapolis, MD.
It rained just about every day with some heavy down pours. This rain jacket was great, it keep me dry the whole time and it was breathable which was plus.
