Rated 5 out of 5 by CJLColorado Emerger II Rain Jacket Lives up to its Billing
I just finished a very wet 4 day fishing trip and had ample opportunity to test the effectiveness of the Emerger II wading jacket. I replaced two other fairly new rain jackets with the Emerger II because they simply failed to keep me dry. I fish throughout the year in the rocky mountain region and we've had lots of rain this spring. You will not be disappointed in this rain jacket for fishing. I found the fit quit good, the cuffs do a great job of keeping under layers dry when you reach into the water, the hood adjustments worked great and the draw strings at the waist helped lock in the warmth. It rained three out of four days on my recent trip to the Bighorn in MT and the wind was a constant companion. I stayed dry and comfortable with temperatures in the 40's. Highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1923 Waterproof, Roomy
Excellent for wet and cool fishing conditions. Wear a 200polartec jacket if cold weather. Rubber lining with nylon outer layer. You will sweat if you wear for extended time in warm weather. Reminds me of rubber and canvas hip waders years ago. Great and plentiful pockets. Velcro patches. I put A-positive patch on one side(we are both the same blood type). I will add a Velcro American flag also. Velcro wrist closure, will not hinder blood flow like elastic band does.
Thank you for a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by walyfish2 Wading jacket
Just got it. Definitely waterproof, zippers, pockets, fly patch, net loop all work well. I have not tested it to the extreme, but my guess would be it would be sweaty on a hot rainy day. Works well as a light raincoat around town

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyFishCincy Great Value Wading Jacket
This is a great value-priced wading jacket. Fits great with room for layers. Lots of freedom of movement. Great pockets with good edges for hemostats today attach to. This is a much nicer jacket than I expected for the money and has great styling. Waterproof and I like the way the cuffs keep water out as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CWinWA Excellent Wading Jacket at Affordable Price
I ordered XL for my husband and S for myself. I'm a medium sized woman, and the men's size small fits perfectly. This jacket is waterproof and the quality of construction is excellent. It's got all the features I wanted in a wading jacket: short length, two big pockets that can hold fly boxes, places outside the pockets to hang equipment and flies, zippered and lined hand-warmer pockets, a hood with built-in visor, and more. You can fasten the storm collar with soft lining all the way up to your chin. Fabulous jacket for fishing in rainy and windy conditions.
I originally ordered a Medium which was too large for me, and LLBean's customer service was outstanding as they helped me process the exchange over the phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 8iowa Good for fishing and all around use
I've had my Emerger II jacket for almost a year. I wear it in rainy weather in the Winter in Florida and in Summer and Fall in Michigan's U.P.
I have not found it to be clammy, although being non-breathable, this jacket would not likely be comfortable on a hot humid day..
I do have a little trouble keeping the hood from covering my eyes but at least I'm really warm and dry..

Rated 4 out of 5 by YellowstoneMan Well constructed.
Jacket is very comfortable, repels mild rainfall, acts as a good windbreaker and slows body heat loss. Purchased large size to cover 3-tray chest box. Must experience heavy rain before I give 5 stars.

I bought this for fishing but wear it whenever i'm out in the rain. I like the pockets and the fit is perfect.my only complaint is its clammy feeling it should have a light cotton lining inside that would make it a great jacket

I had to laugh, going to meet friends to go fishing for a couple weeks. Saw there was quit a bit of rain in the forecast and had been looking to invest in rain jacket for quite a while. On the way picked up the jacket at the local L. L. Bean store, next to no rain happened during the day.
I will write a proper review in the future. I do not expect to have any situations because of the purchase history we have with L. L. Bean products.
Great products and customer service - Thank You
