Rated 5 out of 5áby hillbillyattorney Second review
I wrote a very positive review soon after I received the red coat. Would you believe that I failed to zip it up and only used the snaps? Duh. The past three weeks in the Alaskan wilderness and near the glaciers demanded I really button up. The zipper was not functional. With some embarrassment and trepidation I called a Bean rep who encouraged me to send back the coat that I had been wearing for nearly four months. Not a problem that I got it dirt cheap on a two-a-day special. No questioning, no awkward silences, just pleasure to help me. She assuaged my guilt feelings and arranged a replacement, though the red was sold out. I love the light mocha (buttercream) and am so very grateful that Bean is, well, just plain generous. Who wouldn't buy everything here?

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jericho Great raincoat!
This is the raincoat I've been looking for to replace an old, much-loved LL Bean raincoat. While this is heavier than my old raincoat it fits well with enough room to wear over a sweater or jacket, has a 2-way zipper and a detachable hood, and good pockets. Thanks, LL Bean!

Rated 2 out of 5áby nik6380 a big frumpy no
This jacket has no shape at all. I really wish it had some sort of sinching ability on the inside because it just looked like a garbage bag on me. I ordered a 2X but could probably go down to a Misses' XL. Very disappointed; went back.

Rated 5 out of 5áby hillbillyattorney 3/4 lines waterproof jacket with mesh lining
What a terrific coat. It truly repels rain. Consistent fit to my usual size and I especially love it that I can snap it without bothering to zip it on warmer days. Pockets are roomy. Thanks, guys.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LuvToWander Good one
I needed a raincoat with a little more coverage and a little more style. This fit the bill. I wore it on one of our many rainy days we have had recently. It was also a cold raw day so I was wearing several layers underneath it. I still had enough room to move my arms freely without it feeling like I was in a straight jacket. That was nice to find out so it will stay handy and I won't have to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Beancomfortfan Worked great in rainy windy London
Just back from very rainy, windy London with the H2OFF DX raincoat. Rave review! Professional work visit so I needed to look businesslike yet keep dry. While others were soggy with inside out umbrellas from strong winds, I stayed dry and looked good in this coat. It still looked good after all the airport, Tube and train trips, no wrinkles - amazing. I didn't know if it would work as well as Gore-Tex, but it did. Stylistically, I can't say I loved the big buttons, but otherwise a big thumbs up for the coat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Boblomo Awesome Coat!
I am very happy I bought this coat for a trip to Ireland. The coat is awesome. The size, shape and color are great. I wore it in the very windy countryside. I recommend this coat to all. It will keep you dry and protect you from the wind while looking classy and it is roomy enough to wear a sweater under for those colder days.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MerryGK Disappointed-no interior cinch elastic waistband
I have been looking for an attractive yet utilitarian raincoat for many months. I noticed a co-worker at the elementary school where I work wearing a nice rain coat so I asked about her coat. It looked so feminine with the cinched waist. She graciously allowed me to wear the coat for recess duty and I was sold! However, I went to buy this coat and was so disappointed that this year's model has no interior elastic waistband so the coat appears more tent-like and less flattering than the model my co-worker owns. This coat is a great coat on many accounts - the hood, the interior pocket, the lightweight fabric, adjustable wrist snaps-I wish I could just get last year's model. LLBean, please bring back the waistband. For those that don't care for this feature it could be left alone, uncinched.

Rated 2 out of 5áby WebfootedNW Love coat, hate snap covers
Purchased for rain wear for trip as well as live in NW. Sleeves in regular longer than average. Biggest problem was snap covers on sleeves marred and scratched after a couple wearings. I don't remember hitting or rubbing anything--just normal wear. Sadly returned coat.

Rated 4 out of 5áby RankinRean Lovely coat, but size and pockets detract a bit
Thank goodness for online reviews! At 5 foot 8, it would never have occurred to me to buy extra-small (XS), but some reviews had commented that this coat is sized BIG and they are right. I was convinced to try XS whereas I usually buy Small. The coat fits perfectly, which is rather bizarre! Love the blue colour, detachable (zipped) hood, and styling with large, colour-matched buttons , but the pockets are not very useful, except to put your hands or a pair of gloves in. I wouldn't trust them with safely holding much else.
