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.

I LIKE THE GENERAL LOOK, COLOR & FEATURES OF THE JACKET; HOWEVER, SINCE WE HAVEN'T HAD RAIN IN SAN FRANCISCO?YET? I CANNOT GIVE A REAL EVALUATION.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by psbh Pleasantly surprised-
I am 5' and have a hard time finding a good fit. The sleeves on this jacket were the right length for me. I liked the navy color of the jacket and material. I would consider another color in this coat without a lining.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DeeTour Petite?
I'd recommend this jacket to an average size woman.
This is a beautifully tailored jacket, but sleeves are far too long - at least 4" for this sm-med 4'10" petite woman. The sleeves have snaps to tighten width, but lack a way to adjust for length. With snaps several inches up the sleeve, there's no way to alter sleeve length. So disappointed. Wondering if clothiers will ever understand the meaning of petite?
