Rated 1 out of 5áby scuba114 difficult to zip
My raincoat came today just in time to use as it's been raining for the past two days up here in Syracuse with no let up expected. I walk my dog 2/3 times a day and was looking foward to using my raincoat.
The zipper was made very poorly and I could not zip it closed. After 10 minutes I finally got it to zip and went for a walk with my 7 month old Lab. Upon getting home I could not zip it off. My wife tried to help me unzip it with out success. After a period of time we were able to un zip it enough to pull it up over my head.
Why would LL Bean allow their usually great products to be made with such poor quality zippers.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rupa78 Great jacket for the money
I am very pleased with this jacket, and also have the Trail model pants. I have been doing a lot of hiking while spending the summer in NH, and this jacket has been the perfect companion. Breaking through the tree-line anywhere on these mountains is like entering another world weatherwise. The temperature drops, and the wind goes crazy.
I've only encountered mild rain, where it worked just fine. However it really performs great as a windbreaker. It is easy to pack, takes up very little room, and the hood is also great for keeping your hat from flying off the side of the mountain. lol
I am somewhat confused by the reviews saying the jacket is too short. I am 6'1", and it fits perfect for a rain jacket. I have two other rainsuits for hunting & fishing, and the Trail model jacket is longer than either of those.

Rated 1 out of 5áby mountainrambler A big disappointment
I bought this jacket for my husband for travelling and hiking. It has not lived up to expectations. It is not waterproof. The pockets are made with a flimsy mesh fabric that tears if you put car keys in it. My husband has not worn the jacket a lot but the breathable lining is already starting to rub off at the hood. I bought it just over a year ago and I feel I should send it back.

Rated 4 out of 5áby FunCruiser Not the right color
I ordered the Trail Model rain jacket for my husband and myself for an upcoming Alaska cruise. I ordered the black for myself and the Deep Loden for my husband. The deep loden for my husband looked like a dark gray, but when we received it, it was green. I will be returning it for another color, as my husband does not like green. I like the jackets, as they are not too heavy and bulky. They will pack easily and not take up much room. Other than I ordered the wrong color, these will be fine for what I bought them for.

Rated 4 out of 5áby GiovanniDeHydropolis Great jacket except ...
Great waterproof, breathable jacket overall. However the TEK2.5 laminate flakes off in the collar/shoulder area after about 18 months of light use. I have had to return two with the same problem.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Adventurephiles Keeps the wet out and the dry in
This jacket seems to do the job just right. It keeps the wet outside and keeps me and the stuff in my pockets dry. In regular sizing there is plenty of room for layers - or stuffing a small backpack inside as well. I just wish it was a few inches longer so it would cover my pants pockets too. I know you can pack the jacket into its own pocket, which does make a small package, but the jacket rolls up into small spaces anyway so I'm not sure I would ever use that feature. Perhaps for backpacking...
In short, I am glad I bought this.

Rated 5 out of 5áby carajean74 Super cute on my husband
I bought this jacket for my husband as part of a deal: you get rid of your beloved old nasty windbreaker and I'll buy you something from LL Bean. This is what I bought him. Really nice fit. He wears large and it's a true large. The green is a little more vivid than I expected, but it's a great color. And, the pockets are right where they should be. It's kinda perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5áby kgarb good all purpose jacket
My husband and I both have one of these jackets. This was a repeat purchase for him. We love these jackets on days when light rain is predicted. They are great for traveling. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bellinghamlove Just what the Pacific North West ordered!
It rains in Washington and we can not stay in doors every time that it does. This jacket is lightweight, simple in design, yet everything I wanted. I am a 2XL and it was still generous in size.
