Rated 1 out of 5 by WindmillMom Awful plastic look and feel
This jacket is flimsy and the area inside the hood/neck is like shiny plastic. Not at all the quality that I was expecting, especially for this price. It's going back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ClevelandGal Plasticky feel inside
I wish this had a mesh lining or some other lightweight lining. It has plastic-taped seams in the inside that are shiny and plasticky looking. I'm not sure if we will keep it or send it back.
The other Bean raincoat, the Discovery Raincoat, has a mesh lining but it looks like it has zipper issues so I got this one.
I wish LLBean still had a windbreaker available for kids. My boys had the Casco Bay windbreaker, I believe it was called, for the last 2 years. It was water resistant enough, had a soft feel and a thin soft lining. It was fantastic for light rain, wind, chilly weather. My older son has outgrown his and I'm trying to replace it with this. We don't need complete water proofing, our kids don't stand around in heavy rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by activefam Very functional and worth the price
Because I have a girl and a boy in different sizes, we are buying the gender-neutral colors and they are both wearing them, which is how I can justify spending $50 on a windbreaker rain jacket. We use them a lot, mostly for wind breakers but we're often in light rain and sometimes in heavy rain. We often use them over fleece. Because they are breathable, we use them for activities like biking, hiking too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shirxo Looks great and truly waterproof
I'm a petite woman, 5'2" and 105 lbs. I bought the medium in blue, and it fits me great. I can wear layers underneath in the winter too. Great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ActiveMomCanada Excellent rain jacket for active kids
I bought this jacket for my 4 year-old son. It is an excellent jacket that is truly waterproof, and withstands walking home from school in heavy rain (without an umbrella). It has nice reflective features, as well as a brushed softer section near the chin so that there is no chafing when the jacket is zipped all the way up.
My only complaint is that the hood seems to be quite large (or wide); it would be nice if it had some adjustable cords to get a better fit in downpours. Hence, the 4-star rating.
My son is slim and 44" tall. The size 4 fits him well, with room to grow into next spring (and possibly beyond). The sleeve cuffs can be adjusted to fit around his wrists so that his hands are not swallowed by the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by notnick "It's Waterproof!"
That's what my grandson said the first time he wore it in the rain. The construction is excellent, and LL Bean service great as always. After looking at several kid's raincoats, bought this and glad I did.

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.
