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

Great waterproof rain jacket at the right price. I wore the Emerger II this weekend in torrential rain at it did the job nicely. The rubber cuffs are a great feature and one that is lacking from similarly priced wading jackets from other brands. Convenient pockets with plenty of storage space. It is also lightweight and easily packs into my sling pack. And it comes with the LL Bean guarantee which is unmatched in the industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CUSTOMSTRIPERLURES ON INSPECTION
Received the E II Wading Jacket. This was purchased for an August ?14 trip to a Wilderness lodge on Lake Creek Alaska. I have fished this place in the past and have had great need for a good wading jacket on just about every trip. I read the reviews for this jacket and it seems to fit my needs. I like the construction and the pocket space seems quite ample. The jacket is roomy and appears to allow me to fish with no restrictions. Some reviewers had a problem with the length of this jacket. I can?t imagine why. It?s a WADING JACKET which one normally wears OVER WADERS. I hope that they caught the correlation. I am 6 feet tall and the regular length fits perfectly over the top of my waders and extends to my waist. I do not try to strap a wading belt around my wading jacket because it is NOT dry a top, a totally different piece of gear that I employ when surf fishing. The only concern that I might have is the ?breathability?. Like some other reviewers I do perspire when trudging the banks of rivers, streams and beaches. I have worn the most expensive Gortex, Dry Plus, etc. etc. NONE have kept me perspiration free. What I have learned to do is to rinse my jackets INSIDE as well as outside after a day chasing finned creatures and then allowing (especially the inside) to dry well. I?ll submit a more comprehensive review upon my return from AK. I hope that the 5 star rating remains.
