Rated 5 out of 5 by DisneyNana Great Jacket
I found this jacket to be well made and true to size. Petite is perfect! Wore this jacket for several hours during rainy weather and was completely dry at the end of the day. No lining makes this jacket perfect for layering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mitsoumom No Breathable
Bought this jacket for a recent cruise to the Baltic and was so disappointed to find that it is NOT breathable! In fact, two minutes after wearing it, I noticed that I was perspiring and my arms were wet soon after. The lining of the jacket is like plastic, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised. Such a shame, because it has everything else going for it. LLBEAN: Please make a breathable jacket that is also waterproof and windproof and doesn't leave its wearer wet inside. My jacket will be going back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MimiClaire Lining is disintegrating after a few uses
I love this jacket but am returning it because the white "lining" on the material is flaking off after a few uses. I'm disappointed because I LOVE this coat but when I take it off I've got white flakes all over my neck.
Thank you LLBean for your promise to stand by your merchandise and issue a refund since I am not happy with my coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoldenRetrieverTaosLover Durable rainproof protection
This is a well made medium weight jacket that keeps you dry. Nice features include deep zip mesh pockets, substantial two-way zipper, a storm collar with snaps to protect in fierce weather,inside mesh pockets, and a Velcro tab option to close the coat if you don't want to zip up. I am 150 lb and 5' 5" and bought the extra large which gives ample room to layer under it for use all year long. I layer with LL Bean's Wind Challenger fleece jacket and stay warm and dry. I have one in Navy and another in a discontinued snazzy granny apple green color. The navy jacket zipper became dysfunctional after 6+ years of hard use, but the jacket is still going strong. Great jacket!

I got this in a Petite M because I like roomy jackets (normally I go for PS). Color was periwinkle blue. It's so light and so rainproof. Just a welcome item. Highly recommend it. I'm 5'3", about 116 lbs. The petite M is just the right size for going over a fleece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dmwake2 poor quality
I have always been impressed with the quality and durability of L.L.Bean clothing. But this jacket is disappointing. After wearing only through 1 season, the inner layer is separating at the back of the neck along the seam line. The grey is just peeling away.

I have always known LL Bean for their quality, so I was extremely disappointed with this jacket. I have a job that requires me to be outside regardless of the weather, so I was looking for a good quality waterproof jacket. I wore this jacket only once in a light drizzle and was soaked through in an hour. This jacket could maybe be advertised as water resistant, but NOT waterproof as it states. It gets 2 stars only because the one good thing is LL Bean's great return policy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by imdreaming Orange!!!
I like this jacket a lot. The fit is great. The weight is just right. But, the orange is brighter than traffic cone orange. I could hunt deer and be safe. The color sample on the page is much more subdued than the actual thing. I'm still deciding whether to return it for a more quiet color. I may keep it and use strictly for bicycle riding. It's certainly not appropriate for hiking (for which I got it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by gottabecomfy Love this rain jacket!
I've read many of the reviews about the complaints of this jacket. I've had one for over 2 yrs now, and have had no problems with any of the quality, and I stay dry. I primarily use it for riding my horse and have been poured on many times, and stayed dry. Also out exercising, same...rained on, and stay dry. Mine looks brand new. Just ordered a new one in the bold pink, size Large. I am 5'2", 130lbs...I like to layer if necessary and the L gives me that room. Great jacket for the price. I love mine, and it really hasn't had "dainty" treatment.

by drea9923 I really wanted to love this jacket
This is the second Trail Model Jacket that I've tried. I returned the first one for the same issue and just hoped that it was a one-time defect because I really wanted to love this jacket. Unfortunately, the second jacket didn't fair any better and the lining near all the stitching has started to crack and flake off just like the first. There is definitely something wrong with the design/construction of this jacket and for those of you who live in an area where a rain coat is a must (I'm in the PNW) and used year round, then this coat may last you a year... if you're lucky. I will (sadly) be returning yet another jacket and I won't be buying one from LL Bean again.
