Rated 2 out of 5áby Krysta Didn't like
Purchased one two years ago and thought this was the same. It isn't. The quality is not the same. I love the old one but the new one went back.

Rated 3 out of 5áby bluebob Nice but fell lining fell apart
I ordered this for husband Christmas loved the jacket but the lining is separating from the jacket and certainly not keeping him dry.
I just sent a note off to customer service and hope they can help me with this issue with another jacket since I read they have improved the product. It is a great jacket IF it will work this time. Not the typical great product for LL Bean you expect.
I sent pictures with my note but since they are on my cell phone I do not know how to get them onto this review....

áby southshoreanchors ...Need another rain jacket
This was a decent rain jacket for the price...when I bought it.
Right off the bat, I seemed to have issues with the hood, when I put the hood on, I couldn't get it to keep from coming down over my eyes, even after adjusting the closure on the back of the hood.
The hand pockets seem oddly placed...as they don't go down to the bottom of the jacket, instead, stop 2 inches above the jacket.
The underarm vents are a nice feature, for when you are constantly active.
The reason I can no longer wear this jacket is because the lining, that I believe makes it waterproof, has separated from the nylon outer shell, and now is no longer waterproof at all.
I am wondering if I should have spent more money initially on a Gore-Tex product.
Normally the product and quality-level from LL Bean is great, so perhaps this was just a defective jacket.

Same issue as others, I've had the coat for over a year, but still disappointed in the quality.

Rated 1 out of 5áby rhardaway Poorly Designed Zipper/Storm Flap
I ordered this lightweight jacket for a European trip. The jacket's storm flap continually got caught in the front zipper. I finally threw the jacket into the trash because the zipper became permanently stuck on the storm flap. Poorly designed product.

Rated 2 out of 5áby natzfan Expected Better
Echoing the views of Disappointed. The rubber backing has disintegrated to the point where the jacket has become embarassing to wear. I love the jacket, it just hasn't given me the quality i have come to enjoy from LL Bean products.

Rated 4 out of 5áby cerberez Waterproof, not so breathable
This is a fine jacket for keeping the rain off.
pros: light, keeps rain off, big hood, packs into pocket
cons: sweat built up inside it (maybe it's not so breathable after all), it felt sticky and plasticky against skin, and the hood was too big for use without a hat or helmet (it partially blocked my vision and bugged the heck out of me)

Rated 5 out of 5áby dwrichter Love this jacket
This is a great rain jacket. Comfortable to wear, very waterproof, and it fits well. What more could one ask? Liked the material so much I bought different style but same material for my wife. I've had it for six months now and wear it often.

Rated 1 out of 5áby DanD4 Looks Good - But Fails
Jacket only keeps moisture our as long the water barrier on the inside of the jacket is intact. Unfortunately, the waterproof material has delaminated on the original purchase and the replacement - each in about a year.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Jules56 Darn!
I really love the gold color of my jacket! Unfortunately, that is the only thing I love. I purchased this for a Spring trip to Ireland, because it was lightweight and packed well. Ireland was sunny the whole time I was there, but for one afternoon of misty rain. I was warm and dry, very warm; too warm. I became sweaty and sticky, the sleeve lining stuck to me, uncomfortably. As I loved the color, I thought I could deal with this. Fast forward to the heavy rain we just had in New England, and I thought I was prepared. I made a dash of about 50 yards, and was soaked through. I had to wrestle myself out of the jacket, finally having to exit my car, into a deluge, just to get the darn thing off! I still love the color, and as it is now a sale item, realize this color will be going away, as will my jacket. DARN!
