Rated 5 out of 5 by nannaof12 light rainjacket
this is a really nice light waterproof jacket for warmer weather. It fits well in my grandson's back pack, (is advertised to fold and fit in a pocket but evidently I'm just not that good at compression), but the back pack is fine. It comes in really bright colors so you can pick your child out of a crowd in the rain which is nice. It is just the right length to cover but not so long as you have to sit on it in the car. This jacket was a great choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeeT1 birthday gift for grandson
I ordered this red raincoat for my 9 year old grandson for his birthday. His Dad told me that he had outgrown his raincoat since the past school year. He suggested this item and I ordered it and had it sent to his home in Connecticut. It arrived in plenty of time for his birthday An added benefit was the free shipping for sending it. As usual, L. L. Bean's service was excellent. The raincoat if a bit long , but should fit for at least 2 seasons. After that, it will be saved for his 5 year old brother to grow into.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PastPerfect1 Great fit, but would have preferred better lining.
This is the third jacket of this series that I've ordered in the last three years. While the outer quality and fit is great, and the jacket is indeed waterproof, I was disappointed with the cheap-feeling plastic liner. But, since my son likes it and hasn't complained, we're keeping the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marni76 They are great!
I have twin grandsons - one is always too cold while the other is too warm. I bought them identical rain jackets - one lined (warm) and the other unlined. Got them in their favorite colors. I like that they are both rainproof, have a hood, and have reflective patches. The boys were both very happy with their new jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hobbyfarmmom Great rain jacket!
This is a great all around rain jacket! Keeps you dry, very light weight, packs up easily in a zip up pocket. Great fit, true to size. I bought both my sons one, in green and blue. It's a great jacket for rainy summer days, but roomy enough to layer a sweater/sweatshirt under in colder months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maezi Waterproof , good fit
Great lightweight rain jacket/wind breaker. Packs easily as well. Can be worn over a sweatshirt in cooler weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pesca Nothing as good as this for this price !
Bought this 2 months ago for my 11 years old. It kept him dry and not sweaty in the rain with 85f in the east coast, and then during a week of fly fishing in British Columbia . He even fell in the river while wading and the jacket kept him bone dry! Amazing. To those who criticize the inner layer, it may look cheap but it works , no sweat, wind resistant , and waterproof. Finally, although it may be early to tell, through all his adventures the jacket seems also pretty tough.
I have looked around for other jackets for kids for serious rain, and unless you want to spend $150 or more nothing is close to this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SF77 Tacky White Lining
Usually love LLBean products for my kids but this year's rain jacket came with a shiny white inner lining that makes it look cheap. It also looks like it could rip or tear easily. An inner mesh would have been a better choice. Bought online and it's going back!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mom2hannary Not the best choice for older kids
For years I have been loyal to LLB when it comes to rain gear for my children (9 and 11). Sadly this year the jackets are just not going to work for us. The colors for the older boy crowd were not a hit in our house (would love to see black/navy as color choices). I also didn't care for the way the reflective material was placed this go round. A mesh lining would be nice ~ as it is now, it feels very plastic-like, and I'm sure it's wicked hot. So we have opted to try another loyal brand, and who knows maybe next time we can come back to LLB.
We'll await a redesign.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rockhop Great jacket - but orange is too much
We have bought several of these jackets over the years for our kids as they have grown - excellent quality, light-weight, taped seams. But I allowed my 10 yo son to order the show-stopping, should be outlawed in most states, hunter "orange". It's just too much for my taste. Of course, he loves it!
