Rated 5 out of 5 by seattlekd Excellent all-purpose rain jacket!
I can't say enough about how great this jacket is for a rain jacket. It's a bit on the pricey side for a rain jacket, but well worth it if you are out in the rain a lot.
I bought this jacket for a family member last Christmas, and she loved it so much that I decided to buy myself one this year, as I recently got a new puppy who needs a lot of walking, and well, it rains a lot here in Seattle!
I normally wear a size 8-10, and am of medium height, and the size medium fit me perfectly, with just enough room to wear a sweater or fleece jacket underneath, but not too much room. The dark royal blue is a good color that blends well with most of my wardrobe. The jacket is well made, with a good hood and velcro on the sleeves. I have received a number of compliments on the jacket, which is surprising for a raincoat!

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 5 by 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 5 by 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.

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....

Purchased for my 15 year old daughter. She tried wearing the coat on three different occasions in pouring rain; and she was soaked underneath within a short period of time. I plan to exchange for the Pathfinder coat, which our other daughter has worn with great success.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CMofATL Not breathable as stated.
I was looking for a summer weight, breathable jacket I could use if it gets a little breazy or starts to rain. This is not it. The description says nylon, but it's actually nylon bonded to vinyl. This kind of material does not breathe and is uncomfortable in hot or cold weather. I was disapponted because I liked the style and fit. Had to returned it.
