Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueHeronIslander Comfortable, versatile raincoat
I took this coat to Scotland in early May and was pleased at how well it kept me warm and dry in 45 degree weather with rain blowing sideways at me. Though it's not what I'd call dressy, it's less casual than other coats and looks nice with almost anything -- jeans, dressy slacks, or skirts. I think they call it "dressy casual." I liked the adjustable cuffs to keep the wind from blowing up the sleeves, the combination of zipper and snaps in front, the easily adjustable hood, the roomy pockets, and the interior pocket for keeping cash, driver's license, and house keys. My beautiful blue version of the jacket was stolen, and I will get another one when it comes available in March of 2016. I ordered the orchid one but was disappointed in the color and returned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VTSkier2015 Sleeves too long, waistband too high
I bought his coat because I needed a good-looking, all-round, lightweight, foul weather coat for an October trip to northern Italy and southern Switzerland. The style, materials, and workmanship are fine. My problem is the fit. I'm 5'3" tall, so I ordered a Misses Small Petite. The sleeves are about 1-1/2 inch too long. Also, the cinch-in waist band is a nice idea, but falls 1-1/2 inch above my waistline. I don't have time to exchange the coat. This is the second coat I've purchased from Bean that had this fit problem. In the future, I will try to remember to order Small Regular (not Petite) and hope that the waist will fall where needed and the sleeves won't be horribly long.

This raincoat is lightweight, rainproof, and smart. It is a great addition to my wardrobe. It will be great to have when I am traveling especially to England!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dryasabone Raincoat that lives up to hype
I love this coat! It is long enough that my backside does not get wet in a heavy rain. It is sturdy and comfortable. I wore it in a heavy downpour and every part that was covered by the coat was nice and dry. Not so my socks and shoes. I especially like the fact that I can unzip the zipper from the bottom for driving, such a great feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jane73 Petite fit is great!
So nice to find a petite coat that isn't too tight across the shoulders, and has the waist in the right place!
I am 5' 2", and ordered a Petite Small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CitySophisticate Exactly what I wanted!
I've looked everywhere, both in stores and online, for a waterproof raincoat that hits just above the knee and looks appropriate for wear in the city. I've tried on coats costing 3 times as much with no luck. Finally I thought of my one-year-old H2OFF rain jacket, which I love. This coat is exactly the same except that it's about 6 inches longer.
I'm 5'2" and weigh 134 lbs. The medium petite fits perfectly except it's somewhat full in the shoulders when worn with a tee shirt. This means I'll be able to wear it with a heavier sweater. I especially like the drawstring waist and the sturdy, easy-to-use two-way zipper. The quality is excellent. It will completely cover the longer tunics I've purchased over the past year.
I'm a happy customer and think I've saved a lot of money compared to what else is out there. Thank you LLBean.

I saw the rain coat on line from LL BEAN and I knew my wife
Wanted a rain coat and had looked all over so I wanted to
Surprise her so I ordered her the coat.
When she opened up the package she was not only surprise but more important she was very pleased.
I ordered black because it goes with everything and the attached
Hood is so beneficial and just a great feature to the coat especially
If you get caught in a down pour unexpected without an umbrella.
Both she and I would highly recommend this coat.
Would also like to add that buying items from LL BEAN
One has no worries they stand behind all their products
And if not satisfied you can return it for full credit or exchange it for another. Not many retail store treat their customer like LL BEAN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by carbel replacement raincoat
Replacement for a favorite Bean Goretex long raincoat that was lost. This is much shorter though longer than just a jacket and is missing the nice zipper inner pocket for folding and stowing the coat. However it is comfortable, has nicely adjustable cuffs and is a very pretty dark blue. Hood is very adjustable with a nice brim, elastic hood control and adjustable back velcro, all important for effective rain protection. Ordered an PXL so I could layer and it fits well for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by consumer336 Best raincoat ever & absolutely waterproof
This a wonderful coat. I've worn it in three rainstorms so far and it is absolutely waterproof. It has a sleek, stylish cut. The XS Regular fits me perfectly--plenty of room inside but not baggy.
I am 5'4" and the coat comes to slightly above my knee.
The navy color is kind of sapphire blue and a nice, bright change from my customary black/gray/deep navy palette.
