Rated 3 out of 5 by Fishduck weatherproof at first, but practical features
Except for when new, this is not a jacket that can be depended on to keep you dry in very wet weather. The fabric stayed functional for less than a full season of a Gulf of Alaska duck hunting season. I bring along another raincoat made of a rubberized fabric any time I will be hunting for more than a few hours in the rain. However, the fit and features are very practical. I'm 6'5" 180 pounds and the Tall XL left plenty of room for extra layers underneath. I returned it for a refund, but after looking at and trying out a few others, I'm going back to the LLBean jacket, because I don't think anyone is making a better supposedly breathable and "weatherproof" duck hunting jacket in tall sizes.

Bought this jacket before duck season and loved it all season long. The pockets are great and there are a lot of them. Not to warm but with layering it worked out great so I got to use it all season on every duck hunt (early and late). Very happy with this jack and I bought the waders also and just as happy with them.

Great camo pattern. The pockets are too small for my gear. The coat is sized too small, I wear an X-large in everything and this x large wears like a large. I sent it back for a refund. The reason is pocket size.

I actually used this jacket recently during the heavy rains of our big flood event. Kept me dry and comfortable. Lots of pockets and looks to be typically well made EB product. Only change I would make is to add some snaps on front so you could close it somewhat w/o using the zipper.
Some folks comment it is too light in camo color, but after 50 yrs of hunting waterfowl I find that most camo patterns are too dark and you look like black blob out in the marsh.....especially if your gear is sopping wet.
So far, I like this coat a lot,

I've been looking for a good waterproof hunting jacket for awhile now, and I think I've found it. After having tried it on and looking it over pretty well at the L.L. Bean store in Freeport, I ended up ordering it online after getting home. It seems to be very well made with a lot of thought into how it will function. I'm looking forward to using it this fall.

This jacket has more than you need without being overwhelming or getting things lost because of pockets inside pockets inside pockets. There is just enough pocketing for everything you could need, the shell holds are great, the cuffs and waist being neoprene-style are excellent and serve to keep water out, while still being surprisingly breathable and maintaining dry warmth.
The best thing I can say about this jacket is that it is so well thought out. Things make sense, everything is functional and it's a beautiful jacket. Hunting in MI all winter, I need something warm and dry that literally can't fail - this jacket it is. Oh, and the magnet closures on some pockets are awesome for cold or gloved hands. A must-buy.

Well, Ive had this jacket for a spell now and used it on a few hunts. It's been perfect. Add that with Bean's 100% lifetime guarantee and its a winner.
