Rated 5 out of 5 by CWinWA from Excellent Wading Jacket at Affordable Price I ordered XL for my husband and S for myself. I'm a medium sized woman, and the men's size small fits perfectly. This jacket is waterproof and the quality of construction is excellent. It's got all the features I wanted in a wading jacket: short length, two big pockets that can hold fly boxes, places outside the pockets to hang equipment and flies, zippered and lined hand-warmer pockets, a hood with built-in visor, and more. You can fasten the storm collar with soft lining all the way up to your chin. Fabulous jacket for fishing in rainy and windy conditions. I originally ordered a Medium which was too large for me, and LLBean's customer service was outstanding as they helped me process the exchange over the phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FingerPicker from Bombproof jacket! I purchased this jacket prior to a 12 day flyfishing raft trip on a remote SW Alaska river (Kanektok River). I was looking at $350+ Simms guide jackets, etc. and decided to take a chance on this one since I had already blown a lot of cash on flies and other gear. It rained nearly everyday. We had no respite from the rain and wind, being in rafts and tent-camping the whole way. It was nasty! This jacket got tested in so many ways on this trip and came up a winner. Performed just as well as those high-priced guide jackets. I usually don't write reviews, but felt compelled to rave about this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nord from D-ring failure Bought my first emerger II last year, wore it about 4 times. Almost lost my net because the D ring stitching came apart. Returned it, I hand picked another one that appeared to have the best stitching at the D ring, wore this one once and the stitching on the D ring looks like it is beginning to fail. My net is actually pretty light but during a rainstorm it does get heavier when the netting gets soaked with water and fly casting must put extra strain on the ring. The jacket is packable, cut to wear outside of vest and kept me fairly dry but they need to do more work to secure the D ring better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rikochet from Emerger II rain failure I purchased the Emerger II wading jacket for a recent Labrador fishing trip. Just spent the last six days in heavy rains and cold weather in northern Labrador fishing camp. Wore LLB polar fleece jacket under Emerger jacket every day. Rain penetrated the Emerger jacket every single day...and not just a little...even fleece jacket underneath was damp. Took numerous pics of wet rubber coating inside Emerger (happy to share with LLB staff)...actually looked like I feel in the lake. And it wasn't sweat...there was no sweating going on in the cold weather sitting in a canoe all day. Poor performance from this product. Will be returning jacket and finding something more rain worthy. Jacket features are nice...but rainproof worthiness is extremely poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJLColorado from Emerger II Rain Jacket Lives up to its Billing I just finished a very wet 4 day fishing trip and had ample opportunity to test the effectiveness of the Emerger II wading jacket. I replaced two other fairly new rain jackets with the Emerger II because they simply failed to keep me dry. I fish throughout the year in the rocky mountain region and we've had lots of rain this spring. You will not be disappointed in this rain jacket for fishing. I found the fit quit good, the cuffs do a great job of keeping under layers dry when you reach into the water, the hood adjustments worked great and the draw strings at the waist helped lock in the warmth. It rained three out of four days on my recent trip to the Bighorn in MT and the wind was a constant companion. I stayed dry and comfortable with temperatures in the 40's. Highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 3 out of 5 by guyagooch from Willing to give it a try Received my LLBean Emerger II wading jacket today, and I almost packaged it up and immediately sent it back. ALMOST.....this jacket was ordered as a replacement for my 15 year-old + LLBean wading jacket. The new jacket lacks a mesh lining that separates my bare skin from the rubberized feeling jacket interior. My old LLBean wading jacket was more comfortable. I don't like the way this feels on bare skin. So why didn't I send it back ? Because I searched the web for a better jacket, and frankly I couldn't find one. I'm keeping it for now and I hope that I can adapt to the clammy, plastic on skin experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FishingDeacon from Alaska Weather Tested I purchased this jacket in 2012. Since then it has kept me dry on multiple outdoor trips in all kinds of weather. This jacket has held up for over 6 years of hard use and abuse, including 17" of rain in 76 hours in Katmai, 60 mph winds and sleet in Kodiak, 5 day treks in constant rain, and multiple fishing trips. I have so much faith in it, it is now my everyday rain jacket. This year alone it went with me on 3 multi-day fishing/outdoor trips where it kept me dry through 10+ hours/day of wind and rain. Only the DWR coating is not what it used to be, and the exterior now wets out quickly, which compromises the breathability somewhat. The cuffs are starting to show wear, and tend to come undone, but everything else is solid. Things I love: the fit, the durability, the pocket design, the zipper storm flap, & arm cuffs. Things that I think could be improved: the hood is very adjustable and it works, but something is a little awkward about it. I also would prefer a separate high collar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by somers77 from Great jacket for the price I recently purchased this jacket after ordering several wading jackets from llbean and other companies. I returned all other jackets and wound up keeping this one. I actually found that this jacket had all of the same features as the $329 jacket that I ordered from a different company. There is a lot of space in the pockets, the hood is excellent and does not obstruct your view, and the jacket kept me completely dry on a nasty day in Jersey. I am very picky when it comes to purchasing items like this, which is why I purchased a few different jackets from different companies. This one was the best.
