Rated 5 out of 5áby MomDee Rain Jacket for college
This was a christmas present for my daughter. She loves it! It has a lining for cold weather that can be removed during warmer weather. It fits well and still has room for bulky sweaters in the winter time.

This is a very nice coat, but was way too tight in the shoulder. So i had to send it back.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Springlover2 Didn't know I needed a raincoat till got this one
I initially wanted a soft-shell parka -- around 28" long (the center line from collar to bottom in the back), soft to the touch, drapes well, nice-looking and water- wind-stopping. I ended at buying this rain jacket. I never thought that I actaully needed a rain jacket. But once bought, it became irreplaceable. My objection to raincoats in general is that they are clammy and cumbersome to wear. LLBean has done a good job in making its H2off fabric breathe. I saw another reviewer complaining about it being not breath enough in the summer. My guess is that the jacket breathes much better when temperature outside is lower than inside, in 30-40 degree weather. Fortunately, I plan to use this jacket only in winter and spring/fall. I have looked around for other products and other brands. This parka-length jacket is the best in fit and style. I like the collar to lie flat, unlike most sporty jackets. Also I want my parka to be light and versatile. The drawcord on the waist helps to wear the parka alone or with heavy layers, without leaving a too big gap at the bottom to let cold air in. For reference, I usually wear a Small in LLBean outwear and Medium in LLBean shirts. My only disastifaction is that when I looked at the inside of the fabric, it looks like rubber. The label says that it is nylon, but it looks the same to me as the raincoat materials in the old days. The idea that I am actually wearing a raincoat, even when it is not raining, bothers me a little bit. But the jacket keeps me warm (in 34 degree or above), looks and feels like a soft shell. I have actually considered buying LLBean softshell coat before buying this jacket. But the softshell coat seems to have too small arm holes to accomadate heavy layers and its length too long for taking fast walks. I hope that LLBean will one day make a real soft-shell parka of the same cutting as this rain jacket, so that customers have an option.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CyclingCityGirl Perfect fit, cute style
I just received this and it fits perfectly! I am a petite small, and the jacket is well proportioned for my frame. It is a little roomy for a sweater or light fleece underneath, but it does not look boxy or baggy at all. I like how you can adjust the waist and hood. I ordered the teal, and although it is a little brighter than what is shown online, it is not overly so. I'm glad for the added visibility since I plan to wear it when out walking in the rain.

Rated 2 out of 5áby RLRS sleeves too long
I ordered medium petite and the sleeves hung down below my hands. Medium petite "big shirt" has sleeves shorter than regular medium but this jacket does not. I would not recommend this jacket to a petite sized person.

Rated 4 out of 5áby NYgal works for me
I have other H20ff coats & jackets in PM or PL depending on style & linings; this one I got in PL but a PXL might have worked, if I wanted to wear a heavy sweater (ie Irish knit); would like ALL the H20ff styles to have: inside zippered pockets, not in the breast area, to fit a wallet; outside deep pockets (not slash pockets), removeable hoods, and snaps & zippered fronts. Keep them loose & not fitted (no princess seams please). But they last a long time, so I probably won't get another one! Otherwise they all keep me dry & warm if lined. Would be nice to have colors the same year to year, or at least add matching accessories to make them a bit more stylish (hats, gloves, rain boots?). Had a hard time finding anything to match the violet blue - which is a beautiful color.

Rated 5 out of 5áby bvlsjw Great raincoat for cooler weather
I love the color, fit, and quality of this raincoat. It gives me more warmth than an unlined one, just what I was looking for in spring and fall. For me, it will be good down to about 40 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JKDNM Nice Jacket
Great quality, love the bright purple, makes me visible to cars when walking on fall days when there is little sunlight, runs a bit large, that is nice if you want to wear it over a bulky sweater
