Rated 5 out of 5 by Photophile Exactly what is needed...
The coat is of convenient length for dog walking in the rainy Seattle area. It is easy to unsnap the front if I get hot during the walk. The hood is completely adjustable for any weather conditions. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luvtwoknit Great raincoat but it runs large
I bought this coat especially for a recent trip to the Pacific Northwest. We were fortunate to have mostly sunny weather, but when the rain finally came, this coat was worth the price. The hood has a nice brim on it to keep rain off your face and it tightens nicely around the head to really keep you dry. The snaps on the sleeve are a great feature too. I had rolled it up in the bottom of the suitcase, but when I took it out it didn't look wrinkled.
I originally bought this in dark blue in a size XL, but it was too big. I ended up with the camel color in a large. I would have preferred the blue, but it was not available.

On the day this raincoat was delivered it was pouring rain. I put it on and walked my Corgi in the rain. What a wonderful raincoat. It did its job keeping me dry. Thank you for having such a good product. Oh yes, the Corgi also has a raincoat.

Love the adjustable hood. Fit is great. Hope it last 10 years like the last one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cosmolina Great raincoat - for everyday use
Overall this is a great all-purpose raincoat.
Likes - nice length, 2 way zipper (a must!), great hood, adequate sleeve length (sometimes hard to find for tall or long armed gals), beautiful blue color, flattering design with drawcord waist.
Cons - hood does't fold away or zip off, so it's always out (not a deal breaker), limited pockets - only 2 outer (it would be great to have a zippered inside pocket or two for safe/dry storage!), not great for sustained wet weather use. To clarify the last one - the lower/thigh aspect of the coat did not seem as waterproof as the top. After walking in a steady rain for about 40 minutes, my upper, then lower legs were soaked.
This is a great everyday multipurpose raincoat. I use it around town and for work (dress casual), for which it's perfect, but I wouldn't suggest it for long hikes in inclement weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueHeronIslander Comfortable, versatile raincoat
I took this coat to Scotland in early May and was pleased at how well it kept me warm and dry in 45 degree weather with rain blowing sideways at me. Though it's not what I'd call dressy, it's less casual than other coats and looks nice with almost anything -- jeans, dressy slacks, or skirts. I think they call it "dressy casual." I liked the adjustable cuffs to keep the wind from blowing up the sleeves, the combination of zipper and snaps in front, the easily adjustable hood, the roomy pockets, and the interior pocket for keeping cash, driver's license, and house keys. My beautiful blue version of the jacket was stolen, and I will get another one when it comes available in March of 2016. I ordered the orchid one but was disappointed in the color and returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VTSkier2015 Sleeves too long, waistband too high
I bought his coat because I needed a good-looking, all-round, lightweight, foul weather coat for an October trip to northern Italy and southern Switzerland. The style, materials, and workmanship are fine. My problem is the fit. I'm 5'3" tall, so I ordered a Misses Small Petite. The sleeves are about 1-1/2 inch too long. Also, the cinch-in waist band is a nice idea, but falls 1-1/2 inch above my waistline. I don't have time to exchange the coat. This is the second coat I've purchased from Bean that had this fit problem. In the future, I will try to remember to order Small Regular (not Petite) and hope that the waist will fall where needed and the sleeves won't be horribly long.

This raincoat is lightweight, rainproof, and smart. It is a great addition to my wardrobe. It will be great to have when I am traveling especially to England!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dryasabone Raincoat that lives up to hype
I love this coat! It is long enough that my backside does not get wet in a heavy rain. It is sturdy and comfortable. I wore it in a heavy downpour and every part that was covered by the coat was nice and dry. Not so my socks and shoes. I especially like the fact that I can unzip the zipper from the bottom for driving, such a great feature.

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.
