Rated 4 out of 5 by mommyko Please make Petite sizes!!
I really really really really like this jacket. But it's only in "Regular" sizes. I couldn't resist the temptation and ordered one anyway. While I have no problem folding the cuffs up to conquer the sleeve-length issue, the cinched-waist made it impossible for me to keep it. The waist line on the jacket is more than an inch lower than my natural waist line, this jacket therefore makes my body proportion looking awkward, as if my upper body is longer than it is and my legs shorter. I was also tempted to order XL in Girl size, but that one is fleece lined which wouldn't work for Spring or Fall, let alone for Summer. Please, LLBean, we short gals need handsome and functional jackets too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Capecod2 Awesome jacket!!
Starting with customer service phone call right down to the delivery of this item and quality was remarkable! From the length of it to the length in the arms and the right fit is right on! Repels water and with a sweater under it, it is nice and cozy for those cool spring days. I love it! Would highly recommend this item if on the go and need a jacket for outdoor events.

The fit is so flattering! LLBean needs more items like this for us curvy gals. The fact that it is more fitted means it's more comfortable, and not drafty like other LLBean jackets!
I do want to say...
I dis like that when you tug on the hood a little bit it just unzips so easily!
Also for those colder spring days the zipper gets very cold and there's no piece of cloth between the zipper and your face/neck.
Otherwise I've been wearing this item more than my rain jacket because it's a great jacket for the spring - light but not too light and also breathable.

If you are looking for a stylish, all-purpose spring/fall jacket, this is it! I normally wear small but ended up with a medium as this is more fitted than most LL Bean jackets but as it is unlined, I wanted to be able to layer. The stretch of the material makes it very comfortable to wear and it has repelled April showers nicely. Love the longer length in the back. Great cover when wearing my yoga pants.

I love this coat. The material is soft for a rain coat, and it is definitely water proof. I feel it is a little pricey, but I'll probably wear it often for many years to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NYC72 Very disappointing
I've always had size Large LL Bean raincoats throughout the years. I'm now a size M but I still bought the large so it would be loose enough to wear a sweater underneath. The jacket is skin tight when I'm wearing a Tshirt (it has some stretch) and the back flap looks like an afterthought and hangs oddly. Very disappointing.

I love this jacket. It is true to size. I am 5 foot 3 and 139 pounds. I wear a medium. It is perfect for spring weather and fits well over a light sweater. the dip in the back provides good coverage.
Rolls up in to a small package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolyn25 Great Jacket!
I know why this is a top rated jacket. It has it all, stylish, fits great, repels water, has a hood in case of a downpour, lightweight, pack-able and not bulky. I bought the navy and it's an instant classic. The jacket has zipped pockets to keep items secure, adjustable snapped cuffs and sleeves that can be rolled up and snapped at the elbow and also allow room for a light sweater underneath. I also like that you can fully zip it in case of a downpour or when the weather not an issue I can just close a couple snaps. I have other utility type jackets but none with a hood and as we enter rainy season it's the jacket I reach for. Love the ability to cinch the waist as it creates wonderful shape and the extra length in the back is flattering and provides extra coverage.I wear a 6-8 jacket, am pear shaped and bought the medium; it fits smoothly over my hips while the cinch gives me the definition I need up top. Best purchase I've made in a long time and of course LL Bean stuff is well made.

Love the Luna Jacket, would love it even more in Petite! I am 5'3" and 140 lb - the Large fits well with room for a layer or two. Fit and finish are excellent. This is a practical piece that also looks smart enough for an evening out. Well done, designers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by icmags On-trend Jacket, with all the details
Man, I love this jacket. It. Is. Everything.
LL Bean made your on-trend utility jacket actually have some utility. I had been searching for the perfect waterproof utility jacket for an upcoming trip to Ireland and for the Super El Nino that was supposed to hit us in Southern California. My requirements were seemingly simple:
- Had to be fashionable and on-trend
- Had to be waterproof
- Had to have waist cinching
- Had to have a hood! Bonus if the hood was removable.
- Had to be light enough to be a three season jacket for SoCal
- Had to not be swishy, not overly plastic-y feeling
- Pockets, and zippers are bonus
- Roll-able sleeves
- Available in a color other than olive (since I have a beloved light jacket that's olive already, I opted for the navy)
This jacket fit all that and more!
It's got the pull-tabs to hold up your rolled sleeves!
The fabric is lovely and waterproof, but not swishy or overly loud, in the way cheaper material can be.
I had originally gone with the reviewers here and ordered a larger size (medium) for my petite (5'3 / 140lb / size 8) frame, but found it to be too big. LL Bean's customer service gladly sent me a small and I found it to be perfectly sized, even over my chest (36")! It also works well with a fleece under it for colder days. I do wish they offered this in a petite size, but the small worked very well for me.
