I love the feel of this jacket ,soft and comfortable to wear. would have liked inside pockets but the outside pockets are a nice size. love the way the hood can be tightened but you can still see with no obstructions. Also like the way you can snap and/or zip the jacket closed. I would most certainly recommend this Rain Jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShopWebber stylish rain jacket
i bought this jacket, having owned another color from previous years.
i like the styling of this one a little better bc of the waist-shaping. the previous model had none and in comparison, this newer model is more attractive fitting. small issue, though with the 'waist shaping' cord: when cinched, even a little, it adds a subtle bulge right in the front where the cord lock is. not a deal-breaker. i can live with it.
love the colors offered- kind of an "in-your-face" to a rainy day.
I bought dark orchid and clear emerald. be aware that the colors on the web site are consistently more vibrant than actual (i've noticed this over the years on several different computer monitors and always take that into consideration)

I have only used this raincoat once, as I received as a Christmas gift. I do love the fit and I didn't seem to get hot in it. The only feature that kept me from rating it a 5 was the pockets. I would love to see zippered and a little larger side pockets. Not big enough for keys and I was worried about my phone falling out. Otherwise, another great product!

I love this rain jacket! I have an LL Bean rain jacket that I have worn for over 15 years and it was time for a new one. When I could not get the color I wanted in my size for the LL Bean rain jacket I started to look in other stores. I could not find anything I liked as much as LL Bean rain jackets. I finally decided I would place an order with LL Bean, even though it would be a back order, and wait for what I really wanted. It took about 8 weeks to finally get my jacket but it was well worth it. I love it. Especially the color!!!

I looked everywhere to find this jacket with the quick fasten snaps down the front instead of the Velcro found on all other jackets. Small issue, but I have found the Velcro really doesn't stay fastened, snags other clothes & gets gummed up with lint, etc. I have worn it multiple times now. The fit is great. I am 5'2, 130 lbs. The Reg. Med. allows enough room for a sweater underneath. The sleeve length (adjustable snaps) is fine and shoulder and hips fit fine. As always great quality from LLBean and I know I will enjoy this for a long time. Also, I really like this shade of navy, it is on the blue-ish side, very pretty.

This jacket is smaller than my previous one and a different fabric. I returned it.

I bought this jacket for our Pacific Northwest winters. Rainy but not too cold. The jacket claims to be waterproof and breathable. It does appear to be waterproof, but the breathablilty is marginal. If you never break a sweat you will be OK in this jacket. The sleeves are a bit long and close with a snap. They cannot be closed sufficiently to stop wind and rain from blowing into the sleeves. You get two options to close them. Too loose and way too loose. It does have a two way zipper, that's a plus. This one will be going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by malenkya With a few tweaks it would rate 5-stars
Great fabric -- windproof, rainproof, lightweight and not repulsively squeaky or shiny. Wore it for the first time on a Fall weekend when the weather varied between 50 degrees and windy to 70 and rainy, and I was relatively comfortable throughout, with just a long-sleeved knit shirt beneath. (Another layer would have been better in the chillier hours.) Not crazy about the fit. In an attempt to give it a more "feminine" look, LLBean's designers sewed a belt-like horizontal panel into the back. This makes it a bit snug at the waist for me, but it's acceptable. I'd rather have a waistline that I can wear loose or snug in at will. The real reason for denying this coat five stars is the pockets. There are only two on the outside and they are shallow and slanted, totally inadequate. (A third inside pocket is hard to reach and not very useful.) My car keys felt unsafe in them and they were too small for my sunglasses. I have another LLBean lightweight jacket that has four exterior pockets, two with zippers and two with Velcro. An arrangement like that would increase the utility of this coat enormously.

Beautiful color. As usual, I tried to order 2 of these, one in Large, one in XL. The XL is not available until the end of January! This happens all the time with LL Bean---that and the inconsistency of sizes that leads me to have to order two sizes to begin with. I could wear this jacket with just a t-shirt underneath but would need the XL to layer with anything else. Since my trip will be over by January,I have had to look elsewhere and return my LL Bean purchase. I'm sure that this is a great jacket and the color was perfect. I hesitate to order from LL Bean these days as it seems the out of stock problem is ongoing. Why is it that this does not happen with other companies? We expect better from LL Bean. .
