Rated 5 out of 5 by SMNM It Protects!
We purchased two of these rain jackets for our bicycle trip to Costa Brava. It rained almost everyday of the 10 day trip and this jacket kept us very dry. The orange color was great because it was easy to see even through the dark clouds. It was also good protection against the wind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brucejean55 Great rain jacket
I love this item. Better than I thought it would be, actually the best rain coat of this type I've ever owned. My wife fell in love with it, wanted me to order her one in women's , she wears it every time it rains, said it was the best rain coat she has ever owned, and that's something coming from her.

Rated 2 out of 5 by stevefromvirginia Not waterproof
As another reviewer has mentioned, this jacket is not waterproof. For short periods of time, maybe, like running from the car into work but after 20 minutes or so the dampness will begin seeping through. So I can't recommend this jacket for tailgating or hiking or whatever on a rainy day. L.L.Bean has a lot of excellent products ? the Katahdin Iron Works boots, for example ? and maybe my expectations are unreasonably high, but this product does not belong in the catalog.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MinnesotaSportsman TALL = BOX FIT
Super Box Fit on this jacket.
I was planning to use this coat duck hunting but..
Unfortunately, it's probably one of the widest jackets I've ever put on and has NO DRAWSTRING to control the wide, cape bottom. Surprisingly disappointing fit for a simple LL Bean rain jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Makowa good rainwear for a start
have one of these in alpine gold and it has so far been the best real first rain jacket I've ever had.
it repels the rain very good and is a good product for the price.
you'd normally have to pay a lot more to get something with it's same water resistance, making this the ideal choice for anyone on a budget.
in case you did not know it also repels and blocks wind, so it's just as good for either windy and/or rainy days.
yet it's also good for activities in the rain. thanks to this I can brave most any conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by castle211 Discovery Rain Jacket. WOW.Exceedingly Happy.
On Wednesday,7/15/2016,Chatted with LL Bean about Discovery Rain Jacket.We leave for Europe in 1 week. Possible rain. I have the LL Bean King of Prussia,PA store 15 minutes from me, however this particular item was out of stock. LL Bean received order On Line, they , processed and shipped it on 7/15/2015. Received it today, 7/16/2016. What I thought would be 4 days took 1 day. No charge for shipping. Fantastic. I will shop LL Bean all the time.In 1 month I have made 4 purchases on line Free delivery. This is the greatest thing. LL Bean should make their Stocks in the Market rise and make tons of money.I highly recommend LL Bean to my friends and large family.Thank You..

Rated 1 out of 5 by MichiganMatt Waterproof or not
This would be a great rain jacket; if only it was waterproof. I took the Discovery Rain Jacket backpacking on the Michigan Manistee River Trail. I wore it for a half a day in the rain; the jacket only seemed to repel water for minutes until water soaked through to my shirt. I have had a lot of LL Bean products over the years; this is the first one I was extremely disappointed with. This jacket should be discontinued and reengineered to meet Bean standards.

Rated 2 out of 5 by longtimecustomeralso Good enough but sizes run small
Quality is fair. It is was not a high priced product and seems about what I would expect from a discount store. The size is smaller than the standard that I have been used to from LL Bean. I had to return the medium for a large. The LL Bean coat that this one replaced was a medium and still fits. (It's not me growing that made the new one too small).

Rated 4 out of 5 by SJNeets Nice Jacket
Good quality, works well. I'm 6' 2", 240 lbs - the XL Tall fits perfect - slightly loose, and the bottom of the jacket falls about two inches below my wrists when I'm standing with my arms down to my sides. (Wish it had an interior pocket).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer The old one was better, this new version is OK
I had one of these for ten years or so, the zipper went on it, something that happened to me on two llbean coats in one year, but they were over ten years old. I love their men's jackets and coats because they come in tall sizes, if you are over 6 ft, you know from what I speak. However, this one is shorter than the old one, by two inches. I still recommend it, I where it all the time, I like that it's excellent for warm days when it's raining. I have a hard shell for colder days. This coat with a fleece jacket under it is fine form most ever day with weather. And if it's raining it will keep you warm. When it gets under 20 or so and with strong wind, it will give in to the cold wind. I like the pockets as well. We have several of them, one for each in our family. The price seems high, but if you check around it's right in line with other soft shells.
