Satisfied with purchase

I am normally a medium but was concerned because my arms are so long, but I still purchased the Medium size and it was perfect length. I like the way it fits and looks. It is a little thin so it requires another fleece if you are trying to stay warm as well.

I was very afraid to order this product...but it is well worth the purchase

I am a hippie girl with curves and a wide big booty and meduim slim waist. I was debating back and forth if I should or shouldn't order because I am shapey. I ordered the size 16/18 and it fits really really nice. Not too big or too small just right fit..true to size. Overall a real good nice price and fit Highly recommended. I was going to order the 16w-18w but that would have been too big...Hopefully this information is helpful....enjoy!

A Great Product

I've only worn this jacket a few times now, but it is absolutely perfect for me. Living in Portland OR area is a real test for it and so far, so good. My only issue would be the belt....why do they make them higher up than an average waist is?

Fantastic, functional, stylish jacket!

I live in a place where it would be more appropriate to wear a swim suit than clothes so having a rain jacket is essential. There isn't a lot of warmth to the jacket but that is a nice feature for me so I can wear it on a 60 degree day or a 30 degree day and vary my layers accordingly. The zipper can be catchy which is why I gave it a "4" on the quality scale. Other than that this is a diverse, functional and stylish jacket worthy of it's price tag.

Nice color and comfortable

The color and style very nice after I took off the belt and allowed for the fit by buying a size larger than I would have normally. So far has kept me dry and comfortable, but have not given the absolute test of driving rain.

Sleeves run a bit large and long

I like this coat..stylish for a rain coat. But it is thinner than I expected, maybe would need a fleece inside during the rain. I have problem with the sleeves because it runs larger and longer than the usual size I have. BTW, there is a ventilation part on the back, makes me think that if I walk in windy rain, the water could go through inside the back part (but have not try it yet, though). But overall, I like it.

Bring on the rain!

I usually wear a medium, but based on the reviews I ordered a large because in the spring and fall I'll wear a fleece underneath. I'm glad I did -- It's a perfect fit over the fleece, and it still looks like a good fit without the fleece. I also love the oversize hood, which should protect my glasses from the rain, and the long sleeves that actually come down past my wrists (I have long arms, and that's a problem sometimes). On top of everything else, the jacket is really cute -- I got the red hibiscus. I haven't actually had a chance to wear it yet because it won't stop snowing, but it seems like it will keep me dry.

Great style, fit and comfy raincoat.

I wore my new raincoat for the first time today in the pouring Oregon rain and it was comfy, cozy and warm. The fabric is very light so I wore a light fleece jacket under the coat and it kept me perfectly warm and dry. The fit is stylish and flattering for a raincoat but has enough room to layer it as needed for the cold. Because of its lightness it will pack and travel very well. I am a medium and the fit is perfect. I would highly recommend this light raincoat for its high quality and good looks.

This raincoat is up to the task!

I ordered this trench to take on a trip to Iceland, and I was grateful to have it every single day! I love that it was lightweight enough to stash in my daypack but substantial enough to get the job done. Although it's not rated to be completely water proof, this jacket kept me completely dry even in a steady rain. The quality is even higher than I expected. I ordered a medium and feel it fits true to size. The belt keeps it from being boxy or bulky looking, but there is still ample room to layer up underneath. In fact, I was even able to layer it over my Mighty Light jacket on a couple of occasions. The quill color is a lovely purple... pretty but still muted enough to be somewhat of a neutral. This jacket exceeded my expectations, and it will remain a wet weather staple now that I'm back home.

Great Lightweight Rain Jacket

Great travel coat.

This coat is so good for traveling, because it's lightweight and packs so well. I've worn it in heavy rain and wind at the beach and the waterproofing worked really well. It breathes well. My only complaint it the belt is so short and the waistline is high. I'm 5' 1" and it's on the border.

this was exactly what my wife needed.

This rain coat was perfect and it fit perfectly. Its lightweight, but functional for using in mild weather with rain in the forecast. And it looks great too.

My boyfriend bought me this jacket. I have since ordered 2 more for a friend, since we got a return pass to the outlet. I LOVE it to say the least. If I can get my hands on another pass I will be going back and ordering another color for me and a few for my daughter. Best rain jacket ever. Looks so nice on.

Stylish and Functional Raincoat

I recently purchased this raincoat. It fits perfectly and is high-quality. I use it for everyday use of rain or wind protection. My favorite feature is the feminine structure which flatters my figure. I definitely recommend this product!

Perfect Sizing

The fit is great but that's about it. I was really disappointed that the jacket has no lining. It seems to be common-sense that jackets of this sort have one. This jacket is going back. Instead, I have purchased another Columbia jacket. This one is the Arcadia. It's a perfect fit and has a lining, too.

I love my rain coat. I would recommend to anyone and yes it does run a tiny bit small. I plan on buying another color soon. The fact it breaths you don't get sweaty and over heated with it. Totally would recommend.

really like the color

got the red hibiscus, color alone picks you up on a dreary day. I live in North Carolina, we've been getting an unsusal amount of rain so I was looking for a rain jacket that would be versatile and stylish. I've worn it with skirts and shorts really like the length. Very pleased.

Great jacket, but not for me

This is a great jacket! It felt very well-made and I loved the purple color. However, it was too small for me in the hips (I usually wear XS-S on top and M on bottom). I have a long winter coat in a size S from Columbia and it fits perfectly but the S in this one was way too small in the hips. I had to go all the way up to a L in order to fit my hips but that was way too big on top. So, I'll have to keep looking for a raincoat. But, if it fits you, I think it would be a great jacket!

Favorite rain shell

This is my favorite rain shell I have. I love the texture on the fabric, the double zips, and belt. However, the sleeves are too short. I wear an XS in Columbia very consistently, and the rest of this jacket fits great but the sleeves are too short, especially for a rain jacket.

Nice, but very small

I usually wear 14/16 or large. I ordered XL, which is listed as 16/18. It fit snug with just a light, thin top. Could never wear it with a sweater. Had to return it, and it didn't come in a larger size.

Just what I was looking for!

I had been looking for a light weight, waterproof, stylish jacket with a hood for quite awhile so I was thrilled to find the "Pardon my Trench" jacket! I'll wear it everywhere from the Oregon coast to Paris in the rainy weather.

For long-armed girls

I am a size small normally, but I found this product's version of small to have particularly long sleeves. Since I am on the petite side, I will not claim that this product is made for gorilla-like bodies, but if you are also a bit more compact in size, be aware that the Small will flap past your hands. I'm 5'2" and 120 lbs and I think Columbia generally makes the smalls for people bigger than me. No big deal. I'm ordering the x-small, and then I can go play in the rain!

First Rain Jacket Purchase - Love it

I realized one day - that I'm almost 28 years old and had never purchased a rain jacket. Yes - I had them, but they were ones you got for activities andI hadn't purchased one of my own. I was drawn to this one because I have hips and this jacket has a double zipper so you can unzip from the bottom if needed. However, even with my shape, I don't need to unzip from the bottom, because it's cut for a woman. I also love the option of buttoning or zipping. Plus, the tie-belt makes you still look like a girl, not a box. The pockets are great and the bill over the hood keeps the rain out of your face. I could go on and on about how much I love this jacket. It fits perfectly and was well worth the investment.

Good waterproof acket.

It is a good waterproof jacket. It was not exactly what I thought, because I thought it was thicker, but it is a thin jacket to protect water only and not the cold. Anyway it is a good jacket, very nice, good quality and good price.

Runs Large

The jacket is well made.I normally wear a size 4 and the small ran large and looked boxy and unshapely on me,so am returning it.

Color and fabric disappointing

The cut and style of this jacket was good. I particularly liked the way the back is vented so you don't get that clammy feeling in damp weather. I'm not crazy about the belt - it just seemed extraneous. The Burnt Henna color is too bright for my taste. But the fabric is what I disliked the most. It feels more like plastic than a fiber.

Sassy coat

I love this coat and get compliments every time I wear it. The red is a great color, not too bright-just perfect. I generally have issues with the sizing of Columbia coats-M too tight in my hips and Large too big overall, but got this in a Medium and it's perfect. Great Spring coat.

Great jacket

I ordered the red, and love the brightness on a rainy day. This jacket is waterproof, lightweight, and comfortable. Fits perfect, true to size. I like the 3 different choices for closing and mostly tie the belt, but in a downpour it's great to zip up. The zippered pockets add to the appeal.

For the one you love...

Took the advise and got a large for layering purposes...fits great and hides its real use...a raincoat...very well. Loved it so much, I got one for my mother...as she spends much time overseas. Perfect for packing, styling and staying dry.

Just Right Spring Jacket.

The fabric is so soft, not crinkly and keeps the chilly spring breezes out when I'm walking the dog in the evening. I like a fit. The cut is slightly tailored, so it looks good over clothes I wear to work as a teacher. I don't look bulky and the jacket is long enough to cover longer sweaters. It unzips from the bottom, so it doesn't feel tight when I'm sitting in car. The hood lays flat on the back when not being used. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I haven't had a chance to use it out in a downpour yet.

Stylish and Functional

I bought this jacket on impulse after seeing that this upcoming week was going to be filled with lots of rain since my current rain jacket doesn't keep me very dry. According to the size chart, I would be a small (5'6", 28" waist) but the medium fits perfectly. So far the jacket has kept me very dry. It is very lightweight so I need to layer with fleece on cold days, and I think it will be great for warmer rainy days. I noticed that some of the thread was loose in some areas, but not very much. The tie belt is flattering, as opposed to the boxy shapes of other jackets.

Stay dry in the worst weather.

I chose this rain coat because it was billed as waterPROOF, not just water resistant. The first time I wore it was to watch a parade in what turned out to be a cold downpour. With a couple of layers underneath, I was warm and dry the whole time! The hood was snug, and the little bill on the front of it kept the rain out of my face and off the glasses. It resisted dirt and stains and looks like new. This is the perfect travel raincoat!

Women's Pardon My Trench™ Rain Jacket

A jacket is very comfortable and highly recommended for rain.

Exceeded expectations

This is the perfect stylish light weight rain jacket. The picture doesn't do it justice. It it is very flattering. It is vented in the back and is light weight. I like that I can zip it or snap it or both. The hood is perfect. The length falls just below hips and the ability to unzip at the bottom ensures sitting is easy. It is true to size. I can't say enough about it.
