Rated 5 out of 5 by mainerinnyc2 from Absolutely Gorgeous Anorak First, thank you to L.L.Bean for bringing this back - I've been waiting for years! Also, I'd pay an extra $50 (if not more) to have it made in Maine. This anorak feels like better quality than the originals. The fabric is amazing with great details like the leather tabs and the color is beautiful. Incredibly happy with the design and quality. I can't believe it's so cheap. Large sizes, even for the typical L.L.Bean boxy styles. I'm usually a small and I've returned this to get an XS. The small fit over my 9 months pregnant belly....it was huge! We'll see if the XS is okay or if I need to exchange it to get an XXS (that seems ridiculous).

Rated 5 out of 5 by revjudith from Versatile, functional, stylish I purchased the Mountain Classic Anorak in the colorblock style, as I have two others (one solid, one plaid) and I absolutely love them for international travel. They pack up into a nice size little pillow for snoozing on the plane. The front pocket is very useful when touring foreign cities -- passport, money, and other necessities are secure and easy to access. We were in Norway for two weeks in late Sept-early October -- weather variable, with some rain, some sun, a lot of in-between. My anorak was the PERFECT outdoor layer. Thanks LLBean for making this product so useful and so attractive. The color combinations are great !

Rated 5 out of 5 by BubbaWubbaWuzzaBear from Favorite jacket! I purchased the solid black Mountain Classic Anorak. It has a relaxed fit, it’s lightweight, packable, and SO comfortable. I love that I can wear it with leggings, because it actually covers my butt! I usually wear a medium, but I purchased the large for an oversized, comfortable fit. It fits perfectly and goes with everything. It’s so easy to dress up with a cute scarf or necklace. I get compliments on this jacket all the time. After purchasing the solid black, I loved it so much that I purchased another Mountain Classic Anorak in the red and navy color block pattern. I don’t know which one I love more! I will definitely be buying another one soon!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ElleMay from Hood Fail--too roomy & not adjustable This Anorak has many things going for it such as the fun colors and huge front pocket along with wind and water resistant fabric, BUT the "Roomy, adjustable hood" is ridiculous. It is far too big and does not have any adjustment features other than the drawstring. Due to the extreme size and way the hood hangs over one's face, it is not practical to use in the rain. To use this jacket in the rain, one must plan to wear another hat with this anorak. This hood needs to be less "roomy" and have a behind the head adjustment system. Overall, the poor design of the hood negates this anorak as a rain gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by foxyny from CLASSIC ANORAK The name says it all. This is truly a classic. I did not retire my 10 year old bright red anorak until I received the new version. It is just as well made and even more stylish with the colorblock design. It is wind and rain resistant with a great hood and functional kangaroo pocket. I first ordered the regular size small (5'2 1/2/128 lbs) instead of petite which was a mistake. It looked sloppy and the sleeves fell to mid-palm. The petite version fits perfectly. I expect to get just as many years of use from this anorak as I did the previous version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ldshopper from outstanding water resistance I just had to add to my previous review. Two days after my jacket arrived I had a chance to test it's water resistant properties. It was about 60 degrees and raining heavily when I went out running errands. Water beaded up and didn't soak thru - it performed as well as any waterproof jacket I own! Hood fit perfectly. The other amazing thing was that the jacket was completely dry a few minutes after being indoors. I went outdoors in this during a flash flood warning, and was completely dry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pammac from I bought it to wear on my sailboat I bought a medium and it fit perfect. I am 5'4", weigh 154. Chest is 38, waist is 34 and hips are 43. I can put a layer underneath it. I will use it in light drizzle or damp weather on my sailboat. I have other foul weather gear for more heavy rain. Seems like a nice lightweight jacket. I bought one for a friend for her birthday, i got the large for her. I did try it on, too big for me. I got the medium. Arm length is perfect too on the medium. Found this true to size. I got the green and blue colorblock for myself and the red and blue for my friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aydah from Love at first touch! This is amazing - I was looking for a cute but durable jacket for biking, rainy spring days or hanging around a bonfire into the night - this hits all the nails on the head! It's comfortable, soft and not plastic-y, warm enough yet cool enough and I love how far it unzips so I don't mess up my hair on days I want to be cute! It's everything I hoped for and the colors are awesome, will be buying other colors. I am a 10 in most womens pants, med in most tops and the medium is the perfect fit with room to have a long sleeve underneath - any smaller and it would have fit but not around my hips.
