Rated 4 out of 5 by Faulpelz My Security Blanket
I had bought the longer, unlined version in the Bordeaux color in the spring and loved it so much (because of how comfortable the fabric felt in wet weather) that I wanted the shorter version, too. The Navy color was sold out, so I ordered the lined one; this will be great for New England fall and my upcoming trip to Europe. The only thing I do not like that much are the pleats in the back; not very flattering if you have a protruding behind anyway. Also, since this jacket seems to be such a hit, why not offer a Long style (I have a long waist)?

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgiaPeech Great jacket, good length, and it's waterproof!
I recently purchased this jacket to take with me on a trip abroad and wasn't disappointed! It is true to fit, and the most waterproof a jacket has ever been for me with the exception of rubber raincoats. Many jackets advertised as waterproof are only "water resistant" and end up soaking up the rain. This one kept me quite dry - and it rained nearly every day we were there. The color I purchased, violet blue, was actually what I would call purple, but I loved it when I saw it in person. Colors never seem to be true when you see them online. Nice longer over the hip length adds to the waterproof experience. A little pricey, I thought, but a great jacket. I would do it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mainefan2005 Disappointed
Last year i Purchased an XL petite and the fit was fine. this year it is too small. Tried on last year's and it still fit fine. Have sent this back.
Hope you are going to bring back a PARKA like this (in these great colours) with insulated sleeves.
My mistake is that this is a jacket, thus, three inches shorter and the sleeves are uninsulated. otherwise i would have ordered the next size up.
Also, do not think the back design very flattering as a jacket. Probably fine as a coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PongoMom Excellent Rainjacket
The fabric is beautiful to look at and the lining is just the right weight for gusty rains. Simply put: I don't get wet and I stay warm without getting hot. I live in a semi tropical climate and can take the lining out. When I visit the Midwest and Northeast, I zip it back in, so this is versatile, flattering fit, great fabric, stay dry - what more can you ask for in a raincoat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by changes Perfect for Fall!
I haven't worn it yet, but I know it will be perfect in the Fall. Very pricey, even after 15% off and $20 in coupons, but seems to be very good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JTCalicoast H20ff Rain Jacket
I bought this jacket and wore it for a trip to Alaska in June. We had all weather....Plenty of rain, cold, wind. I never took the lining out but this jacket kept me warm and dry. It is an excellent rain jacket. I wore it dogsledding, hiking & on a crab fishing boat. I loved it & so
happy I picked this one. The only thing negative to say would be closures on front pockets but I never lost anything I put in them (gloves & headband) It has a roomy interior zip pocket so it all worked very well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luckylady5 Love this jacket!
Bought this for an Alaska cruise and land tour. Just arrived home a few days ago, and I had to write a review..... I was so happy with this jacket! We faced different weather conditions and rain off and on as we toured various parts of Alaska. This jacket proved comfortable, stylish and versatile. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loislb Great fit!
I am petite, and this jacket fit me perfectly - length, sleeves. The sleeves can be adjusted if they are slightly long using the snaps. It's very well made, per usual LLB, and I love the removable lining which will come in handy on cooler fall days. I'm so glad I gave it a try and will get many years out of it , like the other Bean jacket I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SCSunshine When it rains, this is the "Go To" jacket!
I love this jacket for many reasons:
* Light turquoise color is beautiful while also nice and visible - Great for walking around Disney World, as your family can find you in a crowd.
* Fits perfectly - I am a size 12/14, maybe closer to 14, regretfully.
* Zip out liner makes this the perfect jacket for all times of the year here in SC - From relatively cold in January through hot as heck and humid in May. But, haven't made it thru August with it yet....
- Material is tough a durable.
- Jacket material does not allow the rain to saturate.
- Placement of the snaps (front and sleeves) and velcro (on the hood) make the jacket customizable to your fit.
