The reviews for the coat are very good, but man, it is huge. I saw a commenter's advice to order a size down. I'm always a 46L so I ordered a 44L. Way too big. I'll order again but a 42L, if STP still has one. Also, with the lining in, the coat is pretty heavy.

Quality, good looking double breasted raincoats are hard to find, particularly the full length variety. I was impressed with its looks as soon as I put it on. The design is classic in every good meaning of the word. Other reviewers have mentioned it tends to run large and this is true. I normally would take a 40 Regular so I ordered the 38 Regular. It is perfect as there is enough room for a suit coat underneath, but not too large to wear just with a dress shirt. The liner is not as heavy as some, but if it gets that cold, better to switch to an overcoat. The liner zips out. There is no pocket slit to enable access to a pants pocket, but it is what it is. Not a deal breaker by any means.
Sierra Trading shipped it promptly and was packed very professionally. A good place to do business.
Looking for a smart looking coat that will get noticed? Then this is the item for you.

I needed a new lined trench coat for a work trip to a cold location. Being sort of out of season when I was looking, my choices were limited. But Sierra Trading had them, in stock, and shipped it to me in 2 days. The coat was perfect in its size and features and is great for use both over dress clothes and as an outdoor jacket. The removable liner and collar makes this versatile for use in the rain in the hotter months as well. It has many nice features, such as the multiple button front closure options (a little or a lot) and the belt that is captured in the belt loop (nearest the belt buckle) with a button close flap to keep it from falling out. If I had a couple complaints, they are that the belt is not captured on both sides and walking while wearing it with the belt not fastened or tied tends to make it work lose from the other belt loop and drag on the ground, and that the outside pockets have no path through to the inside like my old London Fog did (so in order to get to items in your pants pockets, you must lift the jacket up or unbutton the front). These are minor. The jacket is great, it serves its purpose well and is well built, and is a great deal.
Well I bought my husband a 46R in this coat and he wears 46L in sport coats but we decided to try a regular length in this coat and it fit beautifully. The coat is very sharp looking and my husband already owns two wool dress coats by Ralph Lauren that I also purchased from Sierra Trading Post a couple of years ago. I bought him the dress coats in black and a dark gold brown and they fit perfectly in 46R also. I hope this helps with your decision. I can't answer about how much longer an XL is than a L in the 42 because I got regulars. He is 6'1'' tall and weighs 250 if that helps at all.

It is 1" longer. According to the product overview above: Length: Short 44", Regular 45", Long 46", X-long 47" (based on size 42)

Sorry to tell you, but i got the 46 short, and not the 44R. The reason I did so, was because I am 5'9" and I figured that the short's arm length would be perfect (it was!) and I wouldnt have to spend $$$ getting it altered. If you are around 5'9" or below, I would recommend getting the "Short" if available. Its only ONE inch less long in drape than the "Regular."
