Rated 5 out of 5áby Janny1111 Best coat ever!
I bought this coat a couple of years ago and it is THE BEST!! It's lightweight yet warm; the fleece keeps you warm and the waterproof shell keeps the wind out. I love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby horsesandcats Great jacket
I bought this jacket in dark blue. I love the color. The fit is excellent. I ordered it in a size small and I can still layer a medium weight top underneath. The only complaint, and I'm not sure how to fix it, is that it's hard to slide your arms into the sleeves if you are wearing a long sleeve shirt. The fleece lined sleeves, though very warm, do not slide well. This jacket kept me warm and dry on a cold and rainy late Autumn walk. Love the hood. I recommend this jacket.

Rated 2 out of 5áby sadinPA Disappointed
I usually like items that I order from LL bean however, this one is not a keeper. I usually wear an XL-1X, so I ordered this jacket in a 1X hoping to layer under it. WRONG....the coat is cut small and the arm holes are a nightmare!! It is nearly impossible to get your arms inside those fleece lined armholes. LL bean needs to remake this jacket with armholes that are not fleece lined and more true to size. Sadly, I will be returning this jacket. The quality and workmenship is excellent as always, they just didn't get this one right.

Rated 3 out of 5áby wickedann Dry and warm, but.....
The fleece lined sleeves do make it difficult to get on and I also noticed there is no interior pocket. If it had these two items resolved I would definitely buy this! I have an insulated anorak (that LLB no longer carries) and I'm trying to find a replacement as that item will be worn out soon.

Rated 4 out of 5áby dawsondawg clingy lining in sleeves is a problem
I have the unlined version of this jacket and love it. this one fits the same. Its well made, waterproof except in an extended downpour, has few bells and whistles (like pit zips or extra pockets). Its VERY lightweight and the lining makes it the perfect warmth for the mid 40s-50s grey PNW rainy days.
I wear the women's (plus) size and the fit is generous for big busted people and not too large in hips. Thats good for me but maybe not if you are pear shaped. The arms might be a bit short for some - though they are not generous in width. I do not have large arms and the sleeves are close fitting. The hood is a nice shape . Overall the jacket fit is a bit boxy - more so than in the photos - and does not have a waist snugging cord
I would like a cell phone/wallet pocket separate from the zipped hand pockets but other wise it has good features.
It gets 4 stars because the very lightweight fleece lining which is great in the body really is awful in the arms. it clings to shirt sleeves when putting on the jacket and taking it off. Its a bit irritating especially when coupled with the close fit of the sleeves. I have yet to take the jacket off without the sleeves turning inside out. I like the warm in the sleeves but would prefer a less clingy fabric.

Rated 2 out of 5áby BeanCustomer100 Sleeves too tight
I had to return this item. The upper sleeves were tight and the armholes were small. No chance of layering anything under this jacket. I bought the plus size 2X and I usually take between a 1X and a 2X.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Lee61 This jacket works for me!
I like this jacket a lot? it keeps you dry! I like the longer length in back and really protects you even in a downpour. I had bought the Modal Rainwear Jacket from LLBean? no lining ? and my arms and shoulders got wet?there seemed to be no waterproof in the material. so I am sending it back..

Rated 5 out of 5áby Janny1111 This is my all-time favorite coat!
I LOVE this coat!! I would love to find one in a longer length as well - this is the BEST coat i have ever had! It's waterproof, warm, and soft. I love the fact that the sleeves are lined, as i generally wear short sleeves. I got this coat last year and LOVE it!!

Rated 3 out of 5áby happytraveler3 Decent jacket, but not my favorite
I ended up returning this fleece-lined jacket and instead keeping the regular (non-fleece-lined) trail model rainjacket. The fleece lining felt nice and would be a good jacket for days that are rainy AND cold, but in the end I preferred the regular one since I can always layer my own fleece under it when it's chilly, and then wear it by itself when it's warmer.
As for the sleeve issue that others have commented on: I agree the jacket could be made a lot better. I didn't have any problems putting it on when wearing a thin (close-fitting) long-sleeve shirt or light sweater, but anything heavier than that was problematic.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Momknowsbest Love the inside fleece lining...
I love this jacket especially the fleece lining inside - the sleeves, the inside body, and even the hood are lined. Other reviewers had an issue with the sleeves being lined, I guess if you were wearing long sleeve shirt it might be a problem.
I planned on wearing this jacket with short sleeve shirts during the spring, summer, and fall.
It is well made and very roomy...
