Rated 5 out of 5 by CrusherLarue Staying dry
I recently moved to the Oregon coast. The rain can be intense at times, especially during the winter. With the high winds, it rains sideways. I searched for a long lightweight raincoat that would provide more coverage and found one with high reviews at LL Bean. With my rainboots, I am entirely covered. I gave my new coat a trial run during a recent wind and rain storm. I walked along the coastline and the wind blew the waves on to the pathway. I was pelted with water. And, I stayed dry. The hood has a good design, cinching at the neck and staying in place, keeping my head dry. I am very pleased with my new coat!

Rated 2 out of 5 by patiogardener Too narrow!
I wish I had bought this coat a few years ago when the style had a loose a-line body. This year's coat is straight and narrow and snug over the hips even with only lightweight clothing underneath. Everything else about the coat is great - supple fabric, rich blue color, nice details. But who wants a tight raincoat? Back it went.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarileeD Kept me dry
Finally! Found THE raincoat to keep me dry. Love the long length. Walked 15 minutes in a torrential rain and I was completely dry (except for the four inches of my pant leg not covered). Need to get high rain boots to solve that issue.
Nice, lightweight and won't be too hot in spring. In colder weather, plenty of room for a sweater or suit jacket. You can't go wrong getting this coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JudithAnneK Love My Coat
The color is great, the feel is great and it is nice and long. Light in weight, but warm enough for cool days, which we had last week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by didi417 Waterproof and great fit
I was so impressed with the way the coat fit because I usually have problems with sizing. The first day I wore the coat it was pouring down raining and hot outside. I was worried about getting wet and being to hot but it was really waterproof and very light. I am so happy that I decided to purchase this coat.

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!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsDLP40 LOVE THIS COAT!
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.
