Rated 5 out of 5 by HoyaShopper Best Rain Jacket/Windbreaker I have ever owned.
I absolutely love this H2Off rain jacket and I wear it almost every day. It breaths very well so you don't sweat in warm weather and it breaks the wind so you stay warm on blustery days. Plus it is waterproof. I purchased one for myself and one for my college age daughter for a trip to Rome spring 2015. It is the most versatile jacket I own. It is extremely lightweight and easily rolls to a small size to fit in a carry on or suitcase. Since the weather in March in Rome can be beautiful 70 degrees or raining & 40's, we bought one size up so that in colder weather we could wear a very very warm fleece/sweater underneath. This jacket blocked the wind and with the fleece kept us very warm on the 40 degree days and during a rain deluge also kept us totally dry. My husband was jealous. I especially love that it is long enough to cover your rear end so that the rain doesn't run off and make your rear wet. Fit is accurate to size, but arms are slightly long. If you have short arms you may want to get the petite.

This is my second H2Off jacket. I have a 3/4 length one that is several years old and is still in great shape, but I decided to treat myself to a shorter one a few months ago. I'm so glad I did. The fabric on this newer version is so much nicer and I love the larger inside pocket. The jacket is soft, stylish and stands up against the heaviest downpour. The new colors are great as well. I bought a deep purple-violet color that really pops and adds some fun to a rainy day. The petite small is perfect for my 5ft 4in 110 lb frame. I layer it with a warm fleece and have a great three season jacket. It's another LLB winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ldshopper beautiful jacket
The teal blue color is absolutely stunning! A lovely blue/green color. Love that there are snaps instead of velcro down the front and for sleeve adjustment, as velcro can snag clothes. This does not look or feel like a typical rain jacket. I recently returned one of your competitor's rain parka as it didn't look or fit right. LLBean made a superior product. Although this jacket is expensive, I believe it is worth every penny. The pleat in the back provides for a great fitting garment and not at all boxy looking (it gives it a tailored look).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ishop4value Very nice rain jacket!
Silky fabric, true to size, great color (purple). I bought my usual size -- small petite -- and it fits well. The sleeves are a bit long, but the snaps allow me to adjust them. Two small concerns prevented me rating it 5 starrs. The pockets would be smoother if they zipped or snapped and the zipper is a bit tricky. The zipper works smoothly, but sometimes takes a few extra seconds to upzip at the bottom.

I, scrupulously shopped for a replacement to a Columbia jacket I loved and had for over 25 years. When I washed it all the white waterproofing material flacked off to my horror. This new jacket had nearly all the same positive features without the problem. I like the way it looks on; I thought I wouldn't like the hood design because it doesn't zip into the collar, but it actually lays nicely on the back when I'm not wearing it. The other style doesn't. I forced myself to get the beige for night safety; I love and wanted the purple and other colors but as a pedestrian, drivers can't see you in the dark winter colors. I am very please!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanMY H2OFF Rain Jacket
Jury is still out on this one. I returned the Petite Medium jacket to exchange for the longer coat version in Petite Large. Jacket was too small to wear anything but a fairly thin tee top under it; and the length was shorter than expected (I'm 5'1" tall). The next test is the water-proof feature when the coat arrives.

I am 5 feet 4 inches and I usually order a petite medium. In this jacket a petite medium was too long in the sleeve length. The only other thing that I did not like was the flared style. It has a pleat in the back which makes the jacket flare out in the back. I did like: the material, the double zipper, nice hood, inside small pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SPArno great jacket for our weather
This jacket was for my daughter. We live in Alabama so this is the perfect rain coat for our weather. Very comfortable and lite fitting. It won't weigh you down.

Kudos to LL Bean for this jacket. I walk my dog in all weather, even in a downpour, and needed a jacket that doesn't leak. I have worn this in rain and came home dry everywhere the jacket covers, so it did the job as advertised.
Usually I wear a women's size L petite, but ordered a size XL petite so I could wear it over a heavy sweatshirt or sweater. It fit perfectly with all the extra layers I had on during a recent cold snap in the 20s. The sleeves are just the right length, long enough to cover the top of my gloves.
I love the front snaps and use them instead of the zipper.
The interior pocket is a nice touch for securing documents when traveling, or for keeping dog treats dry.
All in all, this is a superlative garment.
