Rated 5 out of 5 by dstan Well Designed
Well made, classy design. Nice snaps at arms to make the garment neat at the wrist. Length good- just above the knee on me. I found the arm length a bit long in the regular so I went with the petite which was perfect for me.(Spoke with the CHAT folks about the measurements and sizing and they were super helpful.) I had my last LL Bean spring jacket for years and years. This looks like another excellent choice.

Just bought the H2OFF jacket and I wish this longer style came in colors other than black, blue or khaki (such dull colors for a rainy day!). The wine and teal blue are beautiful. Please offer this longer style in those choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MelindaTEXAS I love my H2OFF Raincoats - LONG and shorter
I love L.L.Bean products. I dress my brother and my husband and me with clothes from L.L.Bean. THE H20FF RAINCOAT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES!!! I have both the
RAINCOAT and the LONG (very long) raincoat. I use the shorter version (the "raincoat") most of the time. It's wonderful when it's raining and it's also wonderful when it's cold and windy. The HOOD looks great, and most importantly, it is USEFUL - well constructed, pulls up over head and stays there effortlessly. Can be adjusted for good coverage. Living in a moderate climate, I did not get the heavy-duty lining; I add sweater or fleece-jacket when cold. In Black, this coat looks very professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lila2 Comfortable Raincoat
Even though this rain coat is not the sleekest one on the market by any means, it is COMFORTABLE and roomy to wear layers underneath. I like the long length, to the top of my knees, size L and I'm 5'6.5". After working with the hood it stays on through most windy weather. I like the pleat in the back very much and have noticed that trendier, more high styled rain jackets at MEC have pleats also.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dorbitt Bring back the old coat!
I have an LL Bean raincoat with a little fake belt on the back that I adore. It's too big for me now, and getting a little shabby, and I wanted to replace it, but it's been discontinued.
So I ordered the H2Off mesh-lined, the trail raincoat, and the Gore-Tex packable coat. In their favor, all were light weight and designated waterproof. But the fabric wasn't the same. All 3 coats seemed crackly and stiff; none of them fit as easily as my old coat, which has an almost satiny feel. All 3 went back.
It's very hard to find a lightweight waterproof coat that's flattering. None of these coats fit the bill. Please, please bring back the old coat!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChicagotoCA Great coat, Not waterproof, only water resistant
I love this coat, but in tan, it got dirty, so I washed it. I'm not sure if this caused it to lose waterproofness or not, but I soon wore it out in pouring rain and it got completely soaked through.
I even washed it in waterproofing liquid, but it never regained its waterproofability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by horsegal Comfortable, breathable, classy - not waterproof
I love this coat, and I've had it for over 5 years. It's super comfortable, lightweight, and looks classy on. It repels water if it's just sprinkling a bit. But in a full on rain - yeah, not so much. The water soaked right through. It's great if you need something to wear to get from your car to the office or back, and it might rain. Not the ideal coat if you're going for a stroll in the rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Photophile Exactly what is needed...
The coat is of convenient length for dog walking in the rainy Seattle area. It is easy to unsnap the front if I get hot during the walk. The hood is completely adjustable for any weather conditions. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luvtwoknit Great raincoat but it runs large
I bought this coat especially for a recent trip to the Pacific Northwest. We were fortunate to have mostly sunny weather, but when the rain finally came, this coat was worth the price. The hood has a nice brim on it to keep rain off your face and it tightens nicely around the head to really keep you dry. The snaps on the sleeve are a great feature too. I had rolled it up in the bottom of the suitcase, but when I took it out it didn't look wrinkled.
I originally bought this in dark blue in a size XL, but it was too big. I ended up with the camel color in a large. I would have preferred the blue, but it was not available.

On the day this raincoat was delivered it was pouring rain. I put it on and walked my Corgi in the rain. What a wonderful raincoat. It did its job keeping me dry. Thank you for having such a good product. Oh yes, the Corgi also has a raincoat.
