Rated 4 out of 5áby vgrosenw The Perfect Waterproof Raincoat!
i purchased llb's mesh-lined raincoat after buying, & returning, the trail model raincoat. although comfort level is a subjective call, the mesh-lined raincoat is everything the model isn't. i chose the ?deep navy,? which is akin to an air force blue. from the start, the coat was comfortable, the way an old sweater or broken in pair of shoes might be. it?s cut like a trench coat, hitting my knees, with a back pleat for ease of walking. in monsoon weather, rubber boots complete the look. no rain hat is necessary as there is a permanently attached hood with a supplemental visor. the fabric is water proof, without being clammy, & is lined in mesh to forestall sweating. the sleeves are cut loosely, without being baggy, & have snaps near the cuffs for cinching in, or i slightly roll them. the closure is a combination of double zipper & snaps. the outside pockets are at a perfectly positioned slant for hands, tissues or gloves. my only misgiving is inside pockets might have been useful. all in all, i think i?ve finally found the perfect raincoat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Leeleigh Perfect Raincoat
I ordered the deep wine color. I'm 5'7", 146lbs and the Misses Medium is a great fit. Enough room for me to wear a thick sweater on cold rainy days, but not too big that I'm swimming in it wearing a light shirt. The hood design is great and should work well to keep the rain off of my face. Now I'm waiting for rain!

Rated 5 out of 5áby easywayshopper very nice
I've shopped around, and I just can't beat good old LLBean. The large petite is just right for ne. I am glad that I didn't order the medium, for this is a good fit in the raincoat, although in shirts the medium petite is better for me. The material is nice and can be worn on days that are sunny, too. I ordered the navy color and am pleased with it. Once again, LLBean doesn't disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5áby starfarms I love this raincoat!
I'm writing this review due to the fact that every time I wear this raincoat I receive so many compliments! I ordered this raincoat in the Deep Navy, size MP. I'm 5'2-1/2" and it fits me perfectly! The sleeves are the right length and I love how the sleeves have two snaps at the cuff to adjust the fit at the wrists. The length is just the right length for me. I want it to cover my backside well when it's gusty and raining. It has a full length zipper and snap closures and I usually just keep it snapped. The hood gives super coverage when it's raining which saves the need for an umbrella and leaving both my hands free. The only thing missing for me, that I would like, is perhaps an inside pocket. The many times I have worn this raincoat, I have never felt too warm or uncomfortable wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MJdeCA Best Raincoat
This coat was bought for summer wear because it is light in weight. But it has been perfect for cooler autumn days in WA state. I can wear a bulky sweatshirt, plus fleece or down vest under it easily for extra warmth. Sheds rain well with no leaking. Love the khaki color because it is darker and a warmer shade than normal khaki. It also blends in with the color of our golden retriever. I thought it would hide the fur that adheres, but the coat seems to repel dog fur as well as water. A great buy! I'm 5'7" tall, size medium.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Pairadise Great raincoat!
I purchased this raincoat in the Vibrant Blue. What a wonderful color! I like to wear bright colors on dreary days. Fit & length are great, like the extra weight in the hood so it doesn't blow off so easily. The sleeves are dressy looking. Overall a big winner with me!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Tasmania No zip on pockets
I only just got the coat - I'm a size 12, ordered the large, and am glad I didn't order the medium. My only quarrel with the design is the the pockets don't zip or fasten! And they're a little shallow, so not good for anything you don't want to lose. There is an internal pocket, but that would be counterproductive to access in the rain. Might return this one...

Rated 3 out of 5áby NewGrandma Zipper defective
I bought this raincoat to use on an Alaskan cruise. It was perfect for that. With the attached hood and longer length plus type of material it was just perfect for what I needed it for.
However....I had tried it on when I received it and it was fine. I don't know what happened but the morning of the cruise the zipper broke!!
I had no choice but to wear it and use the snaps instead. I am going to keep it because the snaps do a decent job of keeping it closed but very poor quality control if the second time you use the zipper it jams and won't function properly!

Rated 3 out of 5áby BWeaves Redesign?
Can we PLEASE get this redesigned so it's a functional raincoat? I don't know who decided that rain coats need to be above the knee, but they obviously have never been in the rain in Florida.
Can you please make this coat with the following features?
Ankle length. SERIOUSLY<- ANKLE LENGTH.
A-line with a big pleat down the back. You used to have one like this.
A vented back yoke so the mesh can breathe.
A hood that is attached so you don't have to deal with a collar. Really, a collar is not necessary.
Two way zipper and small snaps (like the current one has).
Inner elastic cuff so water doesn't run down your arm when you raise it to fix the hood over your eyes.
A hood that covers your face and stays up.
Who's with me on this?

Rated 5 out of 5áby M3Maine Great Rain Coat
I love this coat. It's long enough to cover my back. I like that it zips and snaps. The color is great, not just a boring dark blue. The material is light weight but durable. It's great for watching my kids soccer games, since they play rain or shine. I can wear extra layers underneath if I need them, so it is good for any season. I am so happy I purchased it!
