Men's Ultralight Packable Wading Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have in Day Pack Needed a packable, super light weight shell (wind proof and water-resistant) for hiking and general light-duty outdoor adventures. This is definitely super lightweight, stuffs into its own pocket, and is wind and water resistant. Surprising for a garment of this weight, it has taped, sealed seams and water-sealed zippers. Yet, care must be taken with the zippers, as they are finely crafted, yet somewhat fragile and particular. This is not a jacket for rough use. I have found that if I use it with a patient hand, it is the most lightweight wind and water resistant shell I have ever stuffed into my day pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra light packable wading jacket I fished 4 1/2 hours June 5 2017. Temp was around 47-50 degrees. Fine rain, mist, heavy rain. I ran into it all. I wore a Carhartt long sleeved T shirt under the rain jacket. I stayed warm enough. I stayed very dry with only the end of my sleeves just a tad damp. This jacket dries super fast as I dried it with the truck heater on my lunch break. It is very light and I was worried about it snagging and tearing. It didn't do that. I went through a ton of wet alders and not a tare or rip. It worked well above my standards. Perfect for what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ultralight + waterproof = outstanding product I bought mine @ 6 months ago. I had been wearing the Trail Model Rain Jacket for 10+ years, & while it's a great jacket & an outstanding value, I was looking for a much lighter waterproof breathable jacket for running. Well, this is it. 10 ounces w/breathable waterPROOF film, waterproof zippers, elastic cuffs & a deep adjustable hood w/visor. It is easily the lightest LL Bean offers, & maybe offered anywhere at this price. It is a bit austere to save weight: there is no chest pocket nor cuff adjustments. There are hood & hem adjustments, so I don't really miss them, even when running in a driving rain. Designed for flycasting, I do find it a bit short; in the cold my fleece layer sometimes protrudes from the bottom. It's otherwise quite roomy. And it's true, the waterproof zippers do require some care when closing bc they're tight. I consider it a fair tradeoff for the seal & no flap. I highly recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I didn't know what to expect when I ordered it, but it fits really good and is a real quality item. It actually protects against hard rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% lightweight and waterproof! I haven't had the chance to test this jacket for durability, but it 100% passes the lightweight and waterproof test. I'm so happy I purchased this. I filmed a video of myself getting drenched in different intensities of water volume and it kept me dry and cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my EDC bag It packs down to the size of an orange. I keep it in my bag at all times and am going to buy a few more to have in the car, and a couple other bags. It allows for layering perfectly. Get one!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality for price This was to replace rain gear (same product from LLBean) which was stolen...this product is much lighter antd is flimsy compared to the last one -- not worth the $109 it cost.
