Rated 2 out of 5áby happytraveler3 Weird back flaps
I returned this because of the extra-long back flaps, which are terrible. Flapped down, it looks like a duck's tail; flapped up, they don't sit flat and so you have this weird lumpy section of the jacket. Too bad, because otherwise the jacket seems pretty good.

Rated 2 out of 5áby TravelinGirly Great jacket with the worst zipper in the world
I bought this jacket for a trip to Scotland's wet weather. The fit is wonderful as it leave room for layering. The fabric sheds water beautifully and in windy conditions it keeps the wind away. However, the zipper is a nightmare. I had read the other reviews and thought...I'm experienced with double zippers and they have never caused a problem. The zipper on this jacket is unlike any other double zipper I have ever used in that it does not line up and zip. The frustration level is high trying to get the thing to zip. Quite often I used the snap to close the jacket but that did not make for a "tight" closure. Bottom line - it's a fabulous jacket with a horrible zipper. That's why the 2...the zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5áby activeoutdoorsylady great raincoat
Love this raincoat !! The fit is true and I like the longer length, yet it is SO lightweight and comfortable. Hood is large enough to cover, yet not too big. Love the aqua color also. Thanks LL Bean once again.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Waimea Just what I was looking for
After getting soaked recently with my old raincoat, I decided it was time to look for strictly waterproof raincoats. I knew LLBean would have what I needed. This coat is perfect, love the color, and the long flap in the back is a great idea. Although I don't consider myself Petite, I Ordered a Petite Large after checking the size chart, the sleeve length is better in the petite for me. This coat has many features that are useful.

The jacket fits well and packs small. Features I liked were: snaps instead of Velcro (it often snags clothing), longer hem in back for better coverage, with snaps to even out hem if you want and removable hood. Works great for travel with plenty of options to customize it.s

Rated 4 out of 5áby 30yrBeanGirl Back Bay Raincoat
I ordered this for the longer length. I got the teal blue which is a very pretty color in person The XS Reg. length gives me ample coverage from rain and is roomy enough for an underlayer yet I'm not "swimming" in it. (5'2"/100 lbs.). I've yet to try it out in the rain hence the 4 star rating. I like the zip front chest pockets. The ample hood coverage is a plus as so many other rain jackets give you whimpy hoods. I like the drop tail bottom and the snaps that let you fasten it up if you choose. Nice little touch; not hard to adjust. One little request would be to put zippers on the hand pockets; since they are on a slant. Other than that, I think I'll wear this rain jacket often.

Rated 5 out of 5áby jigivler saved my vacation
I just spent 3 days in Washington DC to tour many of the monuments, museums and other landmarks. It rained the whole time, much of it so torrential that there was massive flooding! My Back Bay raincoat kept me perfectly dry (at least from my mid thigh and up! - would have needed high boots to keep the bottom half dry...) while I walked around the monuments, and between the other sites. I walked between 5-6 miles each day, and was delighted with the performance of my raincoat.

Rated 3 out of 5áby PollyCat Back Bay Raincoat
I really wanted to like this coat but it was much too tight across the bust in my normal size. Also, the long "tails" in the back were a bit strange. There were snaps to get them up under the coat when not in use, but it puckered when I used them. What I did like about it were the front snaps and the two-way zipper. The hood fit very wall and was flattering. The arm length was a tiny bit long, but I liked that, along with the color which was beautiful. Probably would have kept it but the way the sleeves were attached did not allow for the arms to have much freedom of movement. It went back.

I liked the style and fit, but it made too much noise. I was wanting a lightweight rain resistant jacket for travel to Europe this fall-one that would cover those longish open cardigans and this would have worked if you don't mind the noise with every movement.
