Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane73 Petite fit is great!
So nice to find a petite coat that isn't too tight across the shoulders, and has the waist in the right place!
I am 5' 2", and ordered a Petite Small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CitySophisticate Exactly what I wanted!
I've looked everywhere, both in stores and online, for a waterproof raincoat that hits just above the knee and looks appropriate for wear in the city. I've tried on coats costing 3 times as much with no luck. Finally I thought of my one-year-old H2OFF rain jacket, which I love. This coat is exactly the same except that it's about 6 inches longer.
I'm 5'2" and weigh 134 lbs. The medium petite fits perfectly except it's somewhat full in the shoulders when worn with a tee shirt. This means I'll be able to wear it with a heavier sweater. I especially like the drawstring waist and the sturdy, easy-to-use two-way zipper. The quality is excellent. It will completely cover the longer tunics I've purchased over the past year.
I'm a happy customer and think I've saved a lot of money compared to what else is out there. Thank you LLBean.

I saw the rain coat on line from LL BEAN and I knew my wife
Wanted a rain coat and had looked all over so I wanted to
Surprise her so I ordered her the coat.
When she opened up the package she was not only surprise but more important she was very pleased.
I ordered black because it goes with everything and the attached
Hood is so beneficial and just a great feature to the coat especially
If you get caught in a down pour unexpected without an umbrella.
Both she and I would highly recommend this coat.
Would also like to add that buying items from LL BEAN
One has no worries they stand behind all their products
And if not satisfied you can return it for full credit or exchange it for another. Not many retail store treat their customer like LL BEAN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by carbel replacement raincoat
Replacement for a favorite Bean Goretex long raincoat that was lost. This is much shorter though longer than just a jacket and is missing the nice zipper inner pocket for folding and stowing the coat. However it is comfortable, has nicely adjustable cuffs and is a very pretty dark blue. Hood is very adjustable with a nice brim, elastic hood control and adjustable back velcro, all important for effective rain protection. Ordered an PXL so I could layer and it fits well for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by consumer336 Best raincoat ever & absolutely waterproof
This a wonderful coat. I've worn it in three rainstorms so far and it is absolutely waterproof. It has a sleek, stylish cut. The XS Regular fits me perfectly--plenty of room inside but not baggy.
I am 5'4" and the coat comes to slightly above my knee.
The navy color is kind of sapphire blue and a nice, bright change from my customary black/gray/deep navy palette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by consumer336 Bring on the rain--good fit, good coat!
I'm very pleased with this raincoat. I purchased size Extra Small Regular, my usual size and it fits perfectly. Not baggy, not too tight.
I am about 5'4"/ 110 lbs, slender build. The length is pretty good. It comes to about an inch above my knees.
Some customers have said the coat is too tight in the armholes/shoulders areal....I think it might be if one has fleshier arms than I do. But I tried it on over a blazer that has some light padding in the shoulders and it was not difficult to get the coat on or move around.
I am glad I did not size up.
The bright navy color is sort of marriage of flag blue and indigo.
Not navy, brighter, but still kind of neutral.
I expect it to be a blessing in a rain storm. If not, I'll tell you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ResQMee The very coat I've been searching for!
I bought a Large for my size 12, 5'7" self in the Deep Navy. Great fit, classic color and best of all, the hood on this LL Bean raincoat fits, too. No sag, no blowing off. Coat has snaps, not Velcro. Zips from top AND bottom. Roomy enough for my CA weight sweaters. I love this coat...which was recommended by a friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vgrosenw Great raincoat; fair hood
need to write an adjunct to my february 2015 review. wore the mesh-lined raincoat yesterday in a late spring storm & i remained mainly dry. the one issue was with the hood. although it can be cinched in to fit the wearer's head, there doesn't appear to be any way to secure the hood. whereas the coat's overall design & fabric get a 5, the hood blowing off in stormy weather decreases the score to a 4. (will try improvising the next time i wear this coat in stormy weather with a piece of yarn or binder clip.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by PoodleMom407 Goodbye Kick Pleat!
This a great coat. However, I need to replace mine which is now several years old. The fabric is wonderful and it has all the elements of a terrific coat that can take you from walks in the rain to an evening out. My one complaint is the kick pleat which I find really dates the coat. It makes it look 'old fashioned'. It adds a cumbersome and unnecessary amount of fabric to the back of the coat. How many coats do you see now that have kick pleats? I hope LL Bean will update the design of this great coat and I'll hold off ordering my new one until I see what happens!!
