Going back to LLBean. What a poor fit, bad zipper, tight fleece sleeves, overall bad quality. LLBEAN??

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dryguy Good coat
I love this coat for rain when there is a nip in the air. The fleece lining is great. I have to order in a larger size because the cut in my size is too small. Also I have not had it for very long so time will tell if my initial reaction is correct.

Got the xxlarge for passengers/crew on boat. So far all have enjoyed the comfort, warmth and rainproof material of coat. Yes, the lining in the arms bunches, perhaps the warmth means more than a wrinkle or two. Also bought the unlined one last summer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Glennod Poor Zippers, bad fit and lining was poor.
Just returned this coat to the LL Bean retail store. I should have read other reviews more carefully. Others were right. The zippers on this coat are extremely poor quality. It took me four tries just to zipper up the coat. Also, the coat fit me extremely poorly. I ordered an extra large. I am 5' 10" tall and weigh 200. The coat looked like a sack on me. Finally while wearing a sweatshirt or sweater the lining rode up on the sleeves and had to be adjusted. I highly suggest looking at other coats.

This would be an excellent rain coat if the zipper wasn't so difficult to start. And easily gets stuck on the fabric. Other than that, it is very warm and does keep you dry. The zipper needs to be replaced with a more reliable zipper. It's very frustrating as is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yendilady !!!fleece lined sleeves
This coat is a good length, a good design, a good price: as my husband said, "Everything was good about it, except you couldn't wear it." Why? Because the sleeves are lined with fleece, and he couldn't get his arm down it with his blazer on. Maybe you could, if you were wearing a relatively smooth shirt (i.e. not chamois).

Rated 5 out of 5 by doodobber Lightweight but hopefully warm
I bought this for my son for Christmas so he hasn't seen/worn it yet. I took it out of the bag and it seems to be a very light weight fleece lined coat. This will be perfect for him because he's hot natured and loves cold weather but needs something to keep dry in Ohio winters. Shipping, of course, was quick and ordering online is so easy.

Definitely warm and definitely water repellant, this coat will find me wearing it often in the Fall/Winter/Spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dunerd Went With the Men's
I'm a woman. And always cold. I figured this was the perfect coat, would keep my legs dry and it has a fitted hood. But after reading the reviews for the woman's Trail Model Coat, where virtually every reviewer said the sleeves would catch on clothes, I decided to try a men's. The Medium was perfect (I'm 5'9', 135 lbs). The arms are a little larger and while they catch sometimes, it's much easier than the woman's coat. Overall, it is not that much larger, and since this coat is bought for terrible weather, who cares that it's a little big -- I'm warm and dry! I walk a mile to work every day and in bad weather, I am so glad I now have this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lancastrian A good fit and completely waterproof
We have two Labrador retrievers and they need two 30-minute walks every day no matter what the weather. In our corner of the Pacific Northwest, rain is a frequent occurrence.
So far (worn 6 times) the coat has proven to be completely waterproof. With the fleece lining, I expect it will be quite warm as the rain gets colder! I'm glad I chose to get the lined version of the coat.
Why aren't the brighter colors offered with a lining? I'd have preferred the bright yellow for our murky winter mornings.
