Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthernMihome Not bad at all!!
I haven't used this coat very long but when I have it's been very nice. Northern Michigan can be very cold and wet in the spring. I wanted a warmer waterproof option and was a little apprehensive at first but this seems to work well. I'm a small, this coat fits roomy and I can definitely layer without it being tight.

So excited to receive this coat. Just in time to ward off the cold and chilly winds! The lining is easy to put in and out and it is attractive. It has snaps on the front too so you don't have to zip it up if you choose not to do so! A great purchase and typical of the quality you learn to expect from LLBean.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Oilwell Too tight
Number one: the heavy zipper doesn't zip.
Two: I ordered the size LLBean advisor and I felt worked for me.
It fits if I zip out the lining, but with it in, it is too tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaPat7 early Christmas present
My daughter had a previous coat like this which, over the years, has lost its water repellency. Since we have had so many rainy days, she was frustrated with being soaked & requested a replacement. She chose this one & I ordered it. It was to be her Christmas present, but it arrived just before a nasty downpour , so I took pity on her & gave it to her. SHE LOVES IT!! It not only keeps her dry but is warmer than her old one. Kudos again for L.L.Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by savtah Good but not great
Many years ago I purchased the lined raincoat from LL Bean. I was so happy with it I purchased one for my daughter. This year I wanted to replace the coat since it was no longer waterproof. I ordered the same size only to find it too small! The old coat fit great but the new coat was tight. The old coat had a removable hood- not so on the new one. The wrist detail wasn't as elegant & because the hood was attached, there wasn't a collar. I kept the coat but was disappointed.
Why did you change a good thing!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by NWArtist Nice Coat, but...
I was looking forward to receiving this coat as I have been looking for a 'long' coat. I am still using an LLBean coat I bought about 5 years ago in a Medium. Since being on new meds for the past year, I have gained weight in my midriff, and though the coat still fits, it is snug and I cannot wear layers. I ordered the Large thinking this would fit fine and possibly be able to wear a light sweater underneath. The coat arrived just about an hour ago and I am so disappointed in the size. It fits like my Medium does now. I removed the lining and though it was less snug and more comfortable, I would not be able to layer my clothing. Alas, it goes back. I will not reorder in an X-Large because the sleeves at the shoulder were already off and the X-Large would definitely be too large in the shoulders. However, this is a very nice coat - I ordered it in black and it would be nice enough to wear for an evening out. Again, I am very disappointed and hope LLBean reads these reviews because the sizing needs to be adjusted to fit "normal American" women with curves! This is actually the first time, too, that I've been disappointed with a product from LLBean, maybe my coat was defective in the size, but as of this writing, sizes and colors are extremely limited or sold out. Hopefully the next stock will be truer to size.

This coat is LONG?
I wanted that for walking in our rainy climate, it keeps my legs dry.
Though the colors are not great and it is not the most stylish coat, it does do the trick. The pockets do not zip closed which is a bit of a downside to me and there is only one zip pocket up on the front along the zipper for keys, iPod etc. I am 5'4" so I ordered the petite. The fabric is nice, breathable and waterproof. good quality overall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DutchTreat2 Excellent quality, dorky style, stiff fabric
This coat is very well made and the fit is perfect. However, the fabric doesn't "drape" and the coat has no flare to it, so I looked like I was stuck in a big, long, straight tube. I tried cinching the waist, but that didn't help. I really like LL Bean's quality, but the look of this coat was so unattractive that I returned it. One final thing, it was in the khaki color and IMO it had too much of a golden hue to it.
