Rated 5 out of 5 by Bster Excellent Jacket
I had an anorak like this from Bean's many years ago, and am very happy to see it return. It's very difficult to find anoraks, at least for women. The material is soft and the size is just right - I always wear a medium in Bean tops and this is the same. I can easily fit a lightweight fleece under it. Very comfortable and I love the style. Thank you for bringing it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Briannamom Good fit and great look
I bought this for walking the dogs on rainy spring and fall days.
Love the style, and it's roomy enough to layer a turtleneck and a hoodie underneath.
Thanks LL Bean!

This jacket lasts forever. I believe I have one of the original
lined jackets from 1984. I still wear it because I love it. I just wish
LL Bean would bring back the thinsulate lined version of this
jacket, so I could get a different color. Then I would be a happy woman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanshoprinMA wow!
Ok, so my friend showed up the other night with her new anorak on... and I was so excited to discover they were brought back. I logged on here tonight to order a new one for myself because I love this jacket. My problem? My original red anorak that I bought in the summer of 1992 is still going strong and I've talked myself out of getting a new one until my old one shows any signs of wear or distress. :) I'll see if they have sizes for my kids, however. If these new anoraks are ANYTHING like the old ones (and they look to be), you won't be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gemini730 Very Nice Jacket-fit runs large
Very nice jacket-the fit does run large. I`m 5 feet 2 and a half-109 lbs. Petite extra small was of stock-ordered petite small. Petite extra small would have fit better, but petite small is okay, just a little bit large.Perfect for cool fall/spring weather in East Texas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RoxiFlawless Great Jacket!
I am a plus size gal (225 lbs. and 5'11") and usually wear a 2X in tops and a 1X in bottoms as I carry my extra weight in my middle. After reading the reviews on this jacket, I ordered both the 1X in red and 2X in the navy. The 1X fits great with a long sleeve t-shirt underneath and the 2X fits great over a bulky sweatshirt. I absolutely love the big zipper kangaroo pocket. These jackets will be great at my son's baseball games and all of the outdoor sporting events we like to attend. No need to bring a purse since everything I need can be secured in the zipper pocket!

Rated 3 out of 5 by lostandfound Not what I expected
Comfortable, but then again I sized up on purpose. It is a good fit and it keeps me dry for the most part on rainy days. However, I cannot expect to be outside in the rain for too long before I start feeling the dampness from the rain on my skin. I expected it to be completely waterproof but it is only slightly water resistant.
As a result, I am disappointed. But it is a good rain jacket and I have a feeling it will be very durable.

Jacket does run large, My usual size was too big. The reason for my return was the jacket is quite heavy. It would be great for a light early winter/early spring jacket. I was looking for a light nylon type wind breaker - something with a hood- that I could toss on in rain instead of carrying an umbrella.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pcgolfer Great traveler!
I have been ordering these since about 1985 ?? and am now on my 5th one. No, they don't wear out -- I lose them. These are perfect for traveling as they can be rolled up into a small package and put into a purse or fanny pak, plus they are wonderful for layering. Very wind proof and water resistant plus have great pockets for stowing whatever you need to carry. A work of caution: don't leave one anywhere, you will never get it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lcymagoo Comfortable and nice quality
This was one of my best purchases! I just went on a trip to Northern Wisconsin and wore this most the time. The pockets are great and eliminated my need to carry a purse. When out on the boat fishing It wasn't too hot on the warm, cloudy, windy days and when it was cool a sweatshirt under it was just right. Since it is waterproof the pouch was a great place to keep my camera. When I got blood shed on it, I was able to wipe it right off without stains. I am 5ft 2" and 125 lbs. I usually wear a small to medium in sweatshirts but had to send the small back and get a xs petite. It is still roomy for a sweatshirt underneath. I would highly recommend this! Very nice quality!
