Rated 5 out of 5 by customer50 Women's Pathfinder Waterproof Shell
I bought this to replace a 40 year old wind jacket. I mainly wear it snow shoveling with a base layer and heavy fleece jacket underneath. I wore it to shovel snow in a drizzle and the water beaded up. So far I haven't felt the pit zips through the underneath layers while shoveling snow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MiaJ A very loud jacket
I bought this jacket but returned it right away because the material was stiff and loud. My daughter could hear me trying it on from another room in the house. It was also very short. I felt like it looked like a "little girl" jacket. I felt a bit silly with the short length.

Miss Small fits well on my 5'1.5" (1.57cm) frame. I first ordered the Petite S, but torso was too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by B Excellent, waterproof jacket
The fit is true. It is waterproof. I have worn this jacket hiking, biking and kayaking from Bhutan to the Andes...it is outstanding. Many people along the way have complimented the look and fit. Love the underarm zips for those hot, wet hikes! I take it everywhere just in case and I am never disappointed.

I just love everything about this jacket, color(foggy grey), fit, features, price, the whole package. I can fit a fleece under this jacket and even without the fleece the fit is just great. The pockets are roomy and the hood has great adjustment features.

Rated 3 out of 5 by munchkin12 Technical rain jacket at a lower price
I have had a rain jacket from another manufacturer made of the same fabric for over 8 years. This jacket traveled with me everywhere, from bicycle trips, backpacking and skiing. Alas it was finally starting to wear out. I was excited to find the Pathfinder shell was made of the same fabric that doesn't delaminate over the years as many others do and has kept me dry through many downpours. I tried the shell on in the store and thought it was perfect. I was wearing a thin fleece at that time. When I got home, I tried the jacket on again while wearing a light t-shirt and found that the pit zips rubbed under my arms. I may be more sensitive in that area than others, but was afraid that would be a problem for me and returned the shell. I loved it otherwise. Give it a try. If that feature doesn't bother you, I think you will love this jacket!

This shell keeps you dry from weather and from perspiration, which keeps you at just the right temperature. Easy to fold and store when not in use. Hood is comfortable with or without a hat. Pockets are great, especially the chest pocket. Well made and comfortable.

by ErinRose AMAZING!!!
I just got of a 6 day river trip with 18 of my students. It rained for over 20 hours. Thank goodness I recently purchased the Pathfinder jacket and pants, because I stayed bone dry. The large is big enough to wear a PrimaLoft layer underneath and the large pants were big enough to wear fleece pants underneath; while being just about perfect with light layers under too.
I would recommend this jacket/pants to anyone. I am so happy I finally bit the bullet and spent the $$ on good rain gear without breaking the bank.
I am looking forward to next ski season when I will wear this jacket on wet powder days with the PrimaLoft layer underneath, and for spring days when a only a light breathable layer is needed.
L.L. Bean you never cease to amaze me.
And yes those are Bean mocs on my feet...they also stayed cozy, warm and dry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TEHReviews Well designed jacket
I saw this jacket on a fellow hiker and decided to buy one for myself. It is a bit pricey, it cost more than the winter coat I bought at LLBean late last year. But I love the feel of the material and the stiffness. I love all the pockets and zippers, you can zip open the sleeves for ventilation in warm weather rain. The front pockets are a bit small and I'm concerned things could fall out if not zippered. I was wearing the jacket on a kayak adventure when my son toppled me over and the jacket performed well for me and my time in and then out of the water.

Although this coat was more expensive than others, it fits great and really keeps me dry. I commute daily into a large city via mass transit, and I'm always dry... even in the pouring rain!
