Rated 3 out of 5áby berggie Just received.. it is really short
Should have paid more attention to other reviewer comments. The jacket just arrived; the fit is fine if you never plan to sit in the rain. I would expect this type of jacket to provide at least a little lap protection from the rain. I am 5'11'' and it barely covers half of my pant pockets when standing. Also, the bottom is fitted tight so you could not get any lap protection anyway. Anything in my pants pockets will get soaked. Bought it for a trip to rainy country so I don't have time to exchange. I'll have to pick up a poncho to throw over this. My Bad.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GetTheFlick A Great Windbreaker Too
I'm retired so I get to go out and take pictures every morning. It's also when I get my exercise -- 3 miles of walking every day. I bought the jacket so I could keep walking when it rains. The jacket works great (of course.)
The bonus is how great it is as a windbreaker. I was out yesterday for a couple of hours at 25║F with blowing snow. (Which is about as bad as it gets in Georgia.) I stayed warm and snug the entire time.
I brought a couple of hand warmers along just in case. The pockets aren't insulated (of course) so my hands were bound to get cold (despite the knit photographer's gloves and fingerless wool gloves.) I never had to use them.
I am very well pleased with the jacket (and the pants.)

Rated 3 out of 5áby Citydog Very, very short.
This jacket is extremely well made, great, breathable fabric, and a very flattering, comfortable cut. It is, most unfortunately, extremely short. (This was bought in a size large for someone 5'9" and 185, and otherwise fit great.)
If it were maybe three or four inches longer, it would easily rate five stars, but as it is, it stops a couple of inches above most shirts, so unless you tuck everything in, it's going to funnel all the water onto the hem of whatever you're wearing and the front pockets of your pants.
If you are ordering this to wear with rain pants, you'll be fine, but if you were hoping for something to wear alone for activewear or for commuting, keep looking.
LL Bean oddly doesn't have anything in between this short jacket length and the awkward, knee-length coat version of this. They *do* have a couple of hunting shells in a perfect field coat length, but they only come in camo and hunter orange.

Rated 5 out of 5áby hassansabrina4 Awesome,looks great, bright colors
I got this jacket for my boyfriend, the size chart is awesome. It came in a few days. I got the blue one an it's really colorful. I really liked the grey one but the blue one looks awesome. It's a nice rain jacket. Fits like a glove. I would say to anyone one, if you want a nice bright duelable rain jacket, this is the one to get..:-)

Rated 5 out of 5áby longtimeBeanbeliever perfect replacement for 15 year-old Bean jacket
I have a Bean Goretex jacket that is about 15 years old that got a cut in it and needed replacing. Like that jacket, the new one is lightweight, comfortable, rainproof, a great value and eminently packable. It's great for everything from watching our son playing soccer in the rain to walking around Walt Disney World in the rain. You can layer under it if need be (in marching band season) or wear as is with a Tshirt to stay dry and comfy in any temperature. I look forward to many years of wear from it!

Rated 5 out of 5áby AAAlvin Windbreaker of all Windbreakers
A windbreaker is not a windbreaker unless it is a windbreaker.
This windbreaker is indeed a windbreaker.
Thank God, L L Bean has them available, no one else does.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Buttons94 Fits wonderful!
This is being written on Christmas morning and my husband has just unwrapped his new rain jacket. It fits and looks wonderful and is so comfortable. Roomy enough to wear with a heavy sweater or sweatshirt and still have ample mobility. It is very well made with both outside and inside pockets. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rmccasli Lightweight, durable, perfectly waterproof
This is my first L.L. Bean product review so please forgive me =) I just want to say LL Bean makes solid quality stuff, they charge more but you also get more. This jacket is a perfect example of how spending a bit extra will give you something not flashy but instead practical, durable, and nice looking. When you have a lifetime guarantee on something nowadays it stands out and this product truly stands out and I am very happy with its waterproofing features. It has always kept me dry and I always get compliments when I wear it. It is so light it can fit in almost any bag but when you hold it carries a durability twice its weight and size. Highly recommend!
