Rated 3 out of 5 by cotyc Sadly
I spent a lot, and I mean a lot, of time looking for a jacket that was more than a shell jacket and less than a heavy winter coat. I was very happy when I read about this jacket....especially the lining. Unfortunately the sleeves are also lined with the same material and you cannot put your arm into the jacket without the sleeves of whatever you are wearing bunching up as you try and put on the coat. Not a good experience and I am sadly disappointed.
I am very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SofiaKey Not What I Expected from Experience
Having ordered two trail model rain jackets in the past (which I wore over a fleece jacket), I was pleased to see LLBean had developed a fleece-lined version, thinking the fleece would eliminate the need for a second layer. I ordered the new model, expecting it to be the same length and having a two-way zipper like the previous styles. I was disappointed when it arrived to find it was about four inches shorter and had a one-way zipper. I did wear it on a birding field trip to give it a chance and realized I needed the length to cover my hips for warmth. I hope LLBean will bring back the original Trail Model with fleece lining; then it will be perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sevarge Not as described, product issues
This product is described as suitable for -10F. It's impossible. This is a lightweight jacket with a lightweight liner. It's good for rain protection only. Also, the lining fabric is soft and fleece like, making it very difficult to pull the jacket on if you're wearing a sweater or similarly soft fabric. In fact, the liner pulls through the end of the jacket near the wrist and you have to adjust it by pulling it back in the jacket. I tried to like this jacket but in fact I didn't. I sent it back after fussing with it just trying to pull it on. The goofy lining and th the fact the jacket wouldn't be warm enough for me were deal breakers.

I received this jacket for Christmas and was very excited to wear it for the first time. I work outdoors and wanted one coat to protect me from all the elements at once without having to change throughout the day. The first time I wore this it was 20 degrees out. I had a base layer and a fleece hoodie underneath and I was absolutely freezing. It did not keep me warm at all and I am on my feet moving around all day not standing still. I can't even imagine wearing it in -10 degrees as it states in the description. Sadly returning this item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NewEnglandGirl77 Disappointed
I will start off by saying that I love LLBean, (my husband loves his Wicked Good Slippers!) but when I received this jacket, I was immediately disappointed. I could NOT get my arm through it, even when i had short sleeves underneath?I've encountered jackets like this while trying them on in other stores, but I always assumed it was a manufacturing error. I made the mistake of not reading the other 100+ reviews that all state the same thing, so I had a feeling that the sleeves were going to be an issue. Not sure why nothing has been done to address this problem!!! Now I have to spend $6.50 to send it back? :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarciLynn Nice jacket
I was a little leery about this jacket because of the reviews about the arm lining getting stuck on everything Well, it does. It is a little difficult to get this jacket on over sleeves of any kind except short. As I ofter do wear just a tee shirt under my jacket, this will not be a big problem for me. I did wear it yesterday though with a long sleeve shirt. It was a little difficult to get on but not impossible. Otherwise, I loved this jacket. It is just the right amount of insulation, water and wind resistance. I like that the hood is lined also. Yes it will take a little extra time to put it on when I am wearing long sleeves but overall I think it will be worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SweetB Needs a little tweaking to be awesome
Love this jacket but wish it had smooth lining in the sleeves as it is very difficult to get your arms in with a sweater or fleece on.
Also, I wish it had snaps for the wind flap instead of velcro which
catches on anything knit. Other than that its a nice jacket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wvillelady Skip this jacket
Sleeves are narrow to start with but the fleece lining is impossible. As you put your arm in, the lining clings to any fabric except maybe satin and bunches at the cuff so your hand won't go through. Very disappointing. Guess I'll stick with my 10 year old windbreaker with a cotton sweatshirt fabric type of lining. It fits perfectly and the natural fabric doesn't cling like the synthetics do. With a nearly $100 price tag I expected better quality.

The lining on the sleeves make this jacket ridiculous to wear. The zippper gets jammed constantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vandyboy Comfortable, fleece liner is a plus
I first ordered this jacket that does NOT have the fleece liner. I sent it back and purchased this one, and absolutely LOVE it!!! The liner provides a little extra warmth for those cold rainy days/nights here in Maine. Also, the jacket does not make a lot of "noise" while moving in it. Perfect for walking my dog on rainy days!!!
