Rated 3 out of 5 by BWeaves Bring back the A-line long raincoat
This is the ONLY LONG raincoat out there. In Florida, when it rains, it pours. A raincoat that hits mid thigh is useless. While I love all the features of this coat, it is too slim and sweaty for Florida. It doesn't breathe. And the pleat is too low to be helpful around the hips.
My previous LLBean long rain coat had the perfect shape. It was A-line with a big pleat down the back and a back cape so the mesh lining was vented. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the A-line LONG raincoat. And make it in bright pretty colors, too.
A shoulder cape that covered my purse would also be nice. I'm not hiking in this coat. I'm going to work or shopping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cctearoom PERFECT!
I love this raincoat. I am 5 foot 10 inches with long legs and arms. I bought the navy blue in size 18. It is roomy enough to wear a sweater underneath as well as being long enough in arm length and overall length. The color is a pretty blue not a black/blue. I find no problem with the hood, in fact you can turn it back to frame your face if weather permits, but can also be worn to more than cover your head and protect your face. This was a bit expensive but the last time I bought a raincoat was about 20 years ago! This raincoat will certainly last that long!. (I hope that it doesn't outlive me though!)

This coat is of superior quality in both style and workmanship. I am a "raving" romantic who finds strolling in the rain a poetic experience and this coat enhances that, offering great protection from the elements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kfay1 Good fit, waterproof, good coverage
The hood covers well, but slips off - and the "tightening" things are on the inside - would be better if it had someway to keep it up with ties on the outside of the hood.
Pockets are deep but hesitant to put anything in if it is important, would be better if it had snaps, zipper or not angled but rather up and down pockets

Rated 4 out of 5 by SweatPants Almost as good as my last long coat
My previous coat (not LLBean) had mostly good points but one thing I especially liked about it was the sizing. I buy my coats on the larger size because I like to layer when I travel. The new H2OFF Mesh-Lined Long Coat is very nice BUT it is too slim for layering for me. A "plus" is the new brim of the hood which is stiffer and looks like it will not slide off my head as easily. The fabric feels very silky and I like the Khaki color. It has a zipper as well as snaps so it will keep me dry. It seems to be very waterproof.

Mesh-Lined Long Coat
The fit is perfect for wearing over those layered pieces on cooler days. The life of the first raincoat exceeded my expectations. I purchased my first one in 2006 and I'm using it as a backup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppingValkyrie Love it!
Love the slim lines on this raincoat, gives it style as well as practicality.
Please note the Regular is very long! I am 5'5'' and my usual size on LL Bean coats is "medium regular," but I exchanged this for a "medium petite," which is 2 inches shorter and hits me right at midcalf, which is the classic perfect length for a long coat.
(Amazing how much the Regular's extra 2 inches made me look dowdy, and almost as if I was wearing my father's raincoat!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Reda Poor substitute to previous raincoats
I used to be able to get a full length raincoat with a removable lining from llBean. I am disappointed that this is no longer the case. There is a lining in the top half of this long raincoat, but it is not removable. Moreover the fabric, though perhaps more waterproof than previous raincoats, has a very artificial feel to it. I returned the coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Murphy81 Great coat
I love the coat. The fit is wonderful and the water repellency is the best I have come across in a raincoat. I wish the coat came with a zip out lining for cold weather wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StormDancer Good-bye umbrella!
I am thrilled with this coat. Lightweight for the amount of warmth. Sturdy construction, adjustable hood and roomy pockets. The FIT is PERFECT. There is enough room for a D-cup and a medium weight sweater without hanging over the shoulders. The water LITERALLY falls off so you aren't sitting in a puddle on the bus or in your car. It is worth every penny.
