Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Excellent in heavy rain
This is the best raincoat I've ever owned. It is completely rain proof, even at the seams and front closure, in heavy drenching downpour and wind. The medium length is perfect for keeping my thighs dry. With the lining it is still not very warm, so not a good winter rain coat, but all other seasons is excellent quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiMar A world traveler coat for sure!
The perfect coat for traveling.. This coat took us to Rome and Dublin and a few places in between..Always felt perfect for the occasion in it.. Runs a bit big, but I like to layer clothing anyway.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TravelnMom Not enough room for layering
I do a lot of traveling and believe in layering. this is too fitted to do this. It is not a relaxed fit. I have an older version if this coat and the styling was perfect--Ragland sleeves with room for a fleece sweater. I plan on returning it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LoveMyCorgis Old Style Much Better
I purchased a version of this coat many years ago. I still have it in a pretty light blue, perfect condition. I wanted a new raincoat to wear for everyday with a lining to keep me cozy during fall and spring. I don't think this coat is warm enough, very thin quilted lining in the body and nothing in the sleeves. I ordered three different sizes because the reviews were very conflicting. My other coat, without that ridiculous cinch in the middle, is a size PXL. I am able to comfortably layer a heavy sweater underneath. This new style however, without a sweater is tight across the chest and butt, and puffs out in front and sides. RXL was no better. 1X fits comfortably but looks very strange due to the awkward design. Also I am only 5'2" and the waistline on the raincoat is about 3 inches above my natural waistline. I may keep the coat because I like the color, Dark Orchid, the material, snaps instead of Velcro on the front flap and cuffs, and the length of the coat (1 to 2 inches below my knees). LLBean, please return to the older version and make the lining more substantial, also prettier colors.

I bought this to wear on a cruise to Alaska and it was perfect. If needed, wear a fleece underneath for added warmth or even a thin jacket. This keeps the heat in and the moisture off. Very nice choice for an outer layer.So glad I had this for my trip.

I purchased this coat in September of 2015 and have found it to be more versatile than I expected. I love the coat. I am finding that I wear it in the winter when there is wet snow and the temperature is 25 degrees or higher. I also wear it more frequently than my down coats/jackets when I'm shopping in the winter months because it isn't so hot when I'm in the store. As far as the fit, I like that it has a little shape to it compared to my down coats. I'd say it fits a little slimmer than my usual size S from LLBean but not to the point where it's too tight. Very nice coat. I have no complaints at all.

Nice raincoat. Good for spring and fall. Fits true to size with enough room for a sweater underneath.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mainefan2005 lovely but not generous in size or insulation
Beautiful cut. This coat wasn't as heavily insulated as i had expected. It was also too small and i bought an PXL.
I returned the coat because of size and insulation level.
Wish that the sizing for petties was the same as Misses but shorter.

With all the negative comments about the sizing and quality I hesitated to buy this coat. But after looking around a lot of web sites the LLBean raincoat looked like my best option for a waterproof plus size raincoat with a little A line in the back. I usually wear a 1x to have a little extra room for a heavy sweater. I looked at the sizing chart and based on my measurements I stuck with the 1x. The raincoat fit exactly to the dimensions in the sizing chart for a 1x. I wondered whether I would get a lighter or darker blue - the unlined coat online looked lighter. I bought the lined coat and it is a beautiful dark navy blue. The lining looks light weight. I don't expect it will be warm in freezing weather. But I plan to wear it for rainy days 40-65 degrees and it looks fine for that. The quality of the coat I received looks very good. I am pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanniespicks I love this raincoat
I Just received this raincoat. I am very pleased with the fit, material and how light weight the coat is. I got the PM, I am 5'3" and a 140 lbs. It is a tiny bit roomy but If I had a blazer on underneath it would be perfect. I am keeping it. I travel a lot and need something that packs well..This is perfect. I am very please with this coat.
