Rated 4 out of 5áby serendipity7 great fabric, impractical pockets
Bought the teal jacket -- good fit, gorgeous color, and wonderfully soft fabric. Only complaint is the vertical pockets -- I like the look (vertical is "slimming", right?) but without a zipper to secure things, gloves and other items are destined to fall out.
Didn't have an opportunity to test out the waterproof quality.

Love this coat. It's roomy, well made, and the right length. I bought it for an upcoming trip to Ireland. I got to try it out yesterday in a downpour. I was completely dry when I got to my desk.

Rated 3 out of 5áby jessie32 not a great fit
The rain jacket was too tight across the shoulders. I bought it so I could wear it in the winter to shovel snow and put a fleece layer under it, but even without a layer you could hardly move your shoulders. The color was great and the rest fit good .

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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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.
