Rated 5 out of 5 by adlr Just what I needed
This light-weight rain jacket is just what I was looking for to take along when I travel. It is very well made and can be rolled up to a small size for packing. It has a loose mesh lining and the hood is double stitched around the front so it forms a sort of bill, which I think will help keep rain off the face. The side pockets have zippers. I've found that most rain jackets are too heavy; this jacket is really light. I ordered one size up because it was described as slightly fitted and it fits perfectly, except for the sleeves being too long, which is always a problem for me. I haven't worn it in the rain yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shelecky exactly what I needed!
I was looking for a lighter weight rain coat with a good to throw on for dog walking in the rain. This was exactly perfect and I love the camo- right on trend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JC1469 Nice fit, very useful rain jacket
I ordered the XS Petite and it fits my 5'3", size 4 frame perfectly. I walk dogs at an animal shelter and needed something lightweight that I can carry around in my car. The length is perfect for me, not too long, because I do a lot of bending down to put on dog leashes and pick up droppings. I ordered the Barberry and it's actually redder than I expected but still very attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by operalover Great jacket for cool weather.
I took this jacket on a trip to London. I wore my jacket on a rainy evening and stayed warm and dry. I especially liked the generous hood and zipper closure. I purchased the jacket in petite small, my usual L.L.Bean size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WebfootedNW This Is fitted, not relaxed fit
Was told when called for info, jacket appears (from front picture) a relaxed fit but not so. I can't wear a fitted one--I need a straight cut relaxed fit. Description doesn't specify. Also sleeves have elastic but too big for my average wrists. Nice weight for northwest rainy weather and seems well made. Disappointed that so many jackets by this and other companies are fitted--I am not shaped that way!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hikergran Only a windbreaker
Well I got well and truly wet yesterday in this jacket which obviously cannot stand up to mountain weather!
I wanted a lighter jacket that was easier to pack than the two good Gortex ones that I already have. It does pack very well and is light in weight, but it is not at all waterproof.
I guess you get what you pay for with this garment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JLR54 Nice jacket, runs a little big
My teenage daughter needed a rain jacket for walking back and forth to school and work and she chose this because of the good deal I was able to get on it. She's 5'1" and about 118 lbs. Her measurements are exactly XS petite but we ordered size small petite based on some reviews that say it runs small and also to allow for extra layers underneath. That was a mistake! The jacket was huge on her. I'm the same height, 20 lbs heavier and the size small petite was too big on me as well. Either the jacket we got was labeled wrong or they run very big. I returned and exchanged it for an XS petite and while it's still a little loose on her it'll work. The sleeves are a perfect length. The gathering around the hood is great because it should stay put if it's a little windy. It's lightweight so she shouldn't get too hot if it's a warmer day. She chose the mulberry color, which she also really likes. L.L. Bean handled the exchange extremely fast. We received the smaller jacket 5 business days after returning the original purchase. I gave the jacket 4 stars because of the sizing issue.

I love this jacket - it's lightweight, comfortable, looks great AND it's definitely WATERPROOF! During our 4th of July cookout, it starting pouring and the jacket kept me bone dry (the food was another story), It's absolutely perfect. Thank you L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiffers923 Convenient Jacket!
I bought this jacket a few months ago because campus is always windy-- my clothes always end up soaked, and my umbrella usually gets destroyed. I prefer rain jackets, but who wants to carry a jacket around all day? When folded, this is easy to fit into a backpack or tote, which means I can always keep it on days when there is spontaneous rain. It repels water well, but I haven't washed it yet.
I got this in the Alpine Gold because it was on sale, it's a LOUD color but it goes well with my navy Bean Boots. Also, I don't have to worry about blending into the background on stormy days! I got this in an XL and it's a bit loose. I usually wear a Large but the looseness lets me layer quite a bit under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LittleElephants Perfect rain jacket
This jacket just came in the mail yesterday, and this morning we had a nice steady rain, so I went for a walk to see how good the jacket was in the rain. It was PERFECT in every way. Nice and light, the zipper zips up to my chin so no rain gets in at the neck, the cuffs are snug but not too tight, the length is perfect, and it is completely waterproof. And when I got back home, I just shook the rain off the jacket while I was on my porch, so it didn't drip water onto the floor in the house. I ordered the mulberry color, which was on sale, and it is a rich, beautiful color. And using my coupons, it cost only around six dollars. What a bargain, even at full price !!! I highly recommend this jacket.
