Rated 2 out of 5áby MamaUpstate Inner coating peeling off!
I purchased this 18 months ago and it's leaky. I just used the Nikwax wash and waterproofing products, so we'll see if that helps, but the inner waterproof coating at the neck is all peeled up, so I think I will end up returning it. My mom has had two Bean rain jackets in 30 years, so I'm disappointed in the quality of this one.

Rated 1 out of 5áby MiaJ Not a raincoat
I bought this jacket in yellow last winter for jogging in the rain in the Pacific Northwest. Sadly the rain comes right through, and the jacket isn't at all breathable. When I take it off, there is more water inside the coat than outside. My Nordic pole-walking group was admiring it one day until we went for coffee and they saw the inside. The water beads up on the inside surface from condensation that can't escape, and my tshirt gets soaked through. I suppose it might be ok if you move very slowly and it's only sprinkling a tiny bit of miniature rain drops. But the jacket does nothing for real rain and exercise. The petite size was perfect so am very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SouthieKitKat Exactly what I wanted, SUPER FAST
I inadvertently left my old navy rainshell on the train a few weeks ago. Hearing the weather forecast of a nor'easter for Boston/Maine this week, I ordered the Trail Model Rain Jacket YESTERDAY. Rather than opting for free shipping, I paid for express hoping that I would get it Wednesday. It just arrived to work TODAY before a single drop of rain has fallen! The petite size large would have been fine, but I ordered XL so that I can layer it with a heavy fleece. I ordered it in daylily, which looked a bit more muted in shade in the pictures. The actual jacket is very bright, but not fluorescent. This is fine because I walk my dog in the woods and along the marsh. Even thought there is no permitted hunting where I live, it is better to be safe than sorry since there are duck hunters from time to time. The hood is adjustable, which I love because I have a rather short neck. There are vecro tabs on the cuffs and an flap over the zipper with velcro to keep the rain out. For the price, this is a really nice rain jacket. We shall see how it holds out during our nor'easter. I just love L.L. Bean.

I bought this last year? and every time I wear it in the rain? I feel that my arms are damp! So, to me it's not waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RomeosMomToo Trail Model Rain Jacket
I recently received this jacket and have worn it in the rain a few times now. It is lightweight, fits well and the hood is very handy. The zipper is well made and moves smoothly, as it should. I like the color blue/green and it is comfortable and keeps me dry. It is well made and I would buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5áby northernlucy Great Jacket, But Short In The Back
I have owned the coat version of this jacket for some time, and absolutely adore it. Decided to order the jacket version in another colour. Both versions are well made, comfortable and well designed. I am 5'9" tall and weigh 195 lb. I ordered both in 1X Reg., and they fit perfectly. However......the jacket was not long enough to cover my butt and unfortunately I must return it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby draftybarndweller Waterproof, lightweight
I love this garment. I did get it in P Medium because I wanted room for a fleece garment or sweatshirt. I'm 5' 2" and about 118 lbs & usually buy PS. It is so packable & comfortable, the sleeves are Velcro adjustable, the hood has a little visor & is very good at keeping rain off glasses. I chose the dark blue & like its neutrality...can wear it with anything. Not too dark a blue. Just right. I highly recommend this raincoat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Truce Trail Model Jacket
This jacket is really pretty. I ordered in periwinkle. Love the color. I ordered a Med. I am 5ft 9, 155#. It fits perfect. The sleeves run on the long side, however there is velcro on the cuff to tighten. That works perfectly. I would not have ordered a smaller size as I would prefer the sleeve longer vs. shorter. There is room to fit a sweater underneath. I have not worn in rain yet, but my kids have the kid's version and the jacket is great in the rain.

I work outside, taking care of horses and riding about 10 a day, in the rain, when it does rain. So, I need a legit raincoat. I was really excited about this one. So far, I've worn it twice, never washed it, and water seeps right thru--leaving me soaked. I wish I had saved a little more $$ and purchased a different one. Not sure if I just need to get the next heavy duty version up from LLBean or switch companies. Kind of heartbreaking....
