Women's Arcadia™ Casual Jacket is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good jacket but a little snug Great jacket but I would order a size up. I am usually an XS but the XS is a little snug. The S would have fit better. Functionality is great though and what I was looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeps me dry Bought two of these for two different locations. Specifically, for walking the dogs and the other, for getting my daily walks in no matter the weather. I like the colors I selected...sea salt and the red. Love the hood and especially the longer length in the back. I bought the MED as I like plenty of roominess with the option to wear warm layers underneath in case its cold. Keep in mind, this is a light weight rain jacket. Perfect for keeping you dry in the rain. I would recommend this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very hard crinkley plastic feel This was pretty uncomfortable and not flattering at all. Like wearing a hard plastic bag, no venting either - returning. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good and works This is a very lightweight rain jacket that looks surprisingly stylish. Some other commenters noted it sounds pretty crinkly when you move. I notice that a little bit, but it's not bad at probably happens with any thin raincoat with water repellant coating. I'm 5'4", 125lbs and the small fit great--the backside covers my behind but doesn't fall awkwardly low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect casual raincoat for Seattle i NEVER write reviews even when i hate a product, so hopefully that can be a testament to how wonderful this jacket is. Dress it down, dress it up. I have Patagonia, North Face and this is my favorite because of the flexibility but waterproofness of the fabric. My other shells have a thick waxy fabric and this is the opposite...i feel like i could sleep i this...COMFORTABLE I walk a mile in this to work in Seattle

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The plastic bag jacket I'm using that title because that's exactly how it felt when I put it on. It even comes with the noise when you move. I usually love my jackets from here, but, obviously not this one. The color was even off. I got an xs, but even that was to big. The sleeves covered my hands, could've used them as gloves!. A very cheaply made jacket for the price. Waited anxiously for it, and now it will be returned. VERY DISAPPOINTED....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and Functional This rain jacket is great! I wore it every single day on vacation to Alaska, and it kept me almost completely dry. The only exception was a four-hour-long kayaking trip in the pouring rain during which my forearms got wet from water dripping down into the sleeves. For that reason, I wish the sleeves were velcro, but that's my only criticism. It looks stylish, is completely waterproof, and actually breathes. I ordered the Pulse color, which is a nice purplish gray. For reference, I am 5'7, 160 lbs, and ordered a medium, which I could still fit a fleece pullover under. This jacket is a great choice if you want something a little more stylish than your standard shell!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would have kept if 2-way zipper Typically sz 8 petite so I was expecting the waist to be too low, but thought the style would be more forgiving in the hips. So sad it didn't work for me (30" waist 40" hips) in either S or M. If tweaks included either more fabric in the hips or 2-way zipper I would have kept the S. Interior zip pockets and Velcro back hood would be my other wish list items. Pros: lightweight, easy to pack, Cypress = cute army green, cinchable waist, dolphin drop hem, good hem length, and elastic sleeves that look cute pushed up. Cons: finding long torso with low waist-hip ratio to be standard Columbia fit, fabric a bit noisy. Columbia, please consider other body types in your designs. I would have paid more!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Great jacket for use as a shell. If it's cold you'll need layers underneath. I wore a fleece under it and it still fit. I wore it while on vacation in Ireland and it held up well and can be "scrunched" up to fit in a backpack. My only two complaints are that it needs more pockets and the hood drawstrings can't be cinched; the drawstrings need to be tied together to secure the hood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color not as pictured! I'm not sure about the other color options but when I excitedly ordered the "Ruby red" I was expecting it to be bright red. Instead I received a HOT PINK jacket on the mail. The quality is great and these jackets would be wonderful but be cautious of the colors. Disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Raincoat! Hey! This raincoat is great. It keeps me completely dry. Only complaint is that the hood doesn't quite stay forward, so my face gets a little wet. Otherwise, excellent product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING if used correctly LOVE this jacket. I think the below review was confused by the functionality of this jacket. This is not your traditional Columbia RAIN jacket. and that is why i love it. Columbia continues to come out with NEW and fresh product so i can broaden my own closet with more pieces from them because I love their brand, instead of getting my regular black windbreaker staple each season. I love throwing this jacket on for running errands, walking the dog, being casual, or even for a windy day walk to work. I think this jacket fits great and I think the cinches are very flattering. I also love that the zip does not have velcro over it to avoid clinging onto scarf, shirt, hair, etc. Some people might shy away from this due to the thin fabric used on it, but this works great for me as it makes for a sleek look, less bulk, and is more flattering on my figure. I am a shorter gal and I love how the back is a little bit longer of a dolphin hem than the front. Great versatile piece to add to my winter/spring seattle wardrobe! You can never have too many black jackets :) i would say it runs a TINY bit large depending on how you like your outerwear/layering circumstances, but i think true to size if compared to other columbia clothing you own

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks like Prince Charming, but it's a frog Got the right size (small), but it still fit like a baggy, shapeless tent even when cinched at the waist. It's too long with the tail in the back (if you're 5'2" and under) and the sleeves are especially baggy and way too long (and I have very long arms). The material also feels flimsy, like it might tear easily, and would not hold up in the rain. Not worth the price. I did like the fit of the hood, if only the rest of the jacket followed suit.
