This jacket, though pricey, is wonderful for travel. It is just the right weight, fits over other clothes, blocks wind and repels rainwater very well. It fits nicely. The blue is a lovely color however I think the other color selections are not attractive. I hope LL Bean will continue to offer the coat for awhile until I can afford another one and will consider some more practical color selections.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LauraDC Very nice but...
It is very good fabric, a deep navy and looks stylish for a rain proof jacket. It is trim look with an adjustable waist and a good length. My major complaint is that for such a versatile travel jacket it only has two slash pockets. It makes no sense. In the inside there is a perfect place for a pocket. It looks like there is one there where the mesh ends but on closer examination it is not a pocket. It was very disappointing but I need it now so I did not return it.

If a rain jacket can be called elegant, this is it. The fabric has a wonderful feel, neither stiff nor sleazy.
The fit is true to size and the color spot-on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Catmom67 Rain coat in purple.
Bought this for a trip to Alaska. The quality seems good but I was disappointed that there were no pockets on the inside of the jacket and also that the pockets on the outside had no zippers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Melarancio DOES NOT FIT
Ordered July 17, arrived September 3. I ordered the same size as my H2Off street length coat. The rain jacket is too small around the waist. Now I'm out the return shipping and a rain jacket. The color is not available in the next size up. Very disappointed. I guess I'll continue wearing the old yellow LL Bean raincoat with the hood that falls over my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyinCincy Love this jacket!
I was looking for a lightweight yet warm jacket that would be perfect for travel, and protection in rainy weather. I've checked lots of stores and sites and this one seemed just right. I received if Friday and I'm thrilled with it. The fit is lovely and the snug abdomen that others complained about is why I live it. This jacket has a shape to it so you look a bit tailored versus shapeless and frumpy. That being said, I bought a medium and wear a size 10, it fits well, but if you were any bigger it might be tough to fit a sweater/sweatshirt underneath. I wanted a fitted look though so it's perfect. I've purchased for a September trip it the British Isles, so I'll soon find out if it's really waterproof!

Rated 4 out of 5 by judgewoman Cute jacket but runs REALLY BIG
I ordered this in the Coral color, which I loved. It is more pink than orange; I would call it a peony color. The jacket itself is lovely but it runs really big. I am about 110 lbs, 5'1". I normally wear a size 2 petite in just about everything. I ordered the XS but it is huge. It's really not fitted at all. So you should definitely order a size down, and if you're my size or smaller, this jacket is not for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lorrose Too much change in style
I ordered this Jacket in a Medium Petite, because the Large Petite in the old style was way too big for me. I was surprised when I received the medium to find it to be way too small, so I returned it ( which cost me a lot of money ) for a large. The large fits well, but I miss the old style. The Jacket, which is 159.00 USA ended up costing me about 240Cdn. what with Customs , Taxes and Return Post. I have always known my size at LLbean, but now I am no longer sure. I can no longer aftord the return costs. I do however still like the LLbean quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by themudpuppy perfect jacket
I have been looking for the past few years for this kind of jacket! I wanted one that I could wear with a fleece vest in the not-so-cold winters of Seattle and yet stay dry in the rain. In the past the jackets have either had too much going on at the neckline, the hoods were enormous, or the linings were odd colors/plaids.
This jacket was a bit more then I wanted to spend, but I am so glad I did because it completely fits my requirements. I hadn't realized there was a zip out lining when I ordered it which now gives me even more options. I love that the hood can be shortened a little bit in the back or it can be fully extended to cover the face more if it is really raining hard. I also like the little kick pleat--it looks cool and is functional. I ordered the violet color and it is BEAUTIFUL. I'm just curious why you didn't offer that color in the coat because I was also considering that but went with the jacket because the color is awesome. Sleeves are a teeny bit long but they will work. I find that younger petites must have longer arms because it seems that all the petite manufacturers are going with longer sleeves!
This jacket was well worth the money and I can't wait for the cooler weather to get here!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LCIgrl The perfect light weight coat
I purchased this coat just a couple weeks ago and I absolutely love it! Chic, yet completely functional as a working rain coat, a combination that is very hard to come by!
