Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality I love this jacket. It not only serves as a rain jacket but is a great all around spring jacket, breathable very nice material. I bought it in the white, size 3X. I would like to purchase the blue also. It does run a bit large so I would go down a size. But all in all, I am very satisfied with my purchase. I would recommend this jacket to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite jacket I first wore this jacket over the weekend and it was great. While in DC visiting museums and sight seeing, it kept me dry when it rained and when the wind started picking up I did not get cold at all. I had on a short sleeve shirt underneath and jeans. There is light lining on the inside and I was very comfortable. I am 5'3 and 208 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new everyday and hiking jacket! Perfect for everyday, hiking, or just walking the dog. This jacket is light but it is water resistant and breathable at the same time. Zippered pockets and adjustable wrists make this a great jacket. I wear this as my go to since it arrived as it looks and fits amazingly well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket for Portland weather! I really love this jacket. It's the right weight for me (not too hot, not too cold). Fit is great! Waterproof and was just enough for a trip to the Oregon Coast. I have the white with gray trim. Very flattering

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight around the tummy It fits, but its really snug. Pros - Its zip up-able - It protects from rain - The seams are very strong - The bright rose color is very colorful - The sale price was amazing - Great quality fabric Cons - Snug, Can't layer it with other jackets - thin, I was hoping for a little warmth All and in it's a fine jacket and the fact that outdoorsy jacket even get up to this size in women's is crazy. So if you are a little bigger then 2X, 3X would prob fit very well, but if you at exactly at 3X you should probably look at Men's sizes. (Not as pretty and not a lot of cute colors)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Inland Northwest I purchased this for the spring in the Inland Northwest as I only have winter jackets. I received this jacket the day it rained all day, amazing! So comfortable and did a great job at repelling the rain. I would note that there is no warmth to this jacket as it is just a shell, so layering up is a good idea. I am plus size and this fits comfortably. I wear a 2x usually but got the 3x so I could layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain Rain Go Away I love this rain jacket! I got it for a planned trip to Costa Rica, but I've used it for the rainy weather we've been having here too. It's lightweight and airy but definitely water proof. The color in the picture is very accurate, bright rose is a great pop of color, especially if it's raining!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am elated! I squealed like a kid on Christmas morning when I put on this well made brand name rain jacket and it zipped up past my hips like a jacket is supposed to. I'm and outdoors person and have been my whole life. An autoimmune disease has lead to me gaining weight and frankly I just don't like styles of the regular plus sized stores! I don't need clothes for work, I need clothes for play. I have found them! Columbia I am pumped! Thank you! Please keep making these sizes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent rain jacket This little jacket is a workhorse for me. It shuts out the rain, cuts wind significantly, and keeps me warm and dry even through a rainy winter. I agree that it does run a little bit small, and this may be due to the cut of it more than the actual measurements of the garment. I can get a fleece jacket and a thermal shirt under it without problems, though, and I'm normally about a size 20 in street clothes. Also it's a little fiddly with the hood and the zipper. I find the hood only stays up if I pull the zipper almost all the way up, or if I pull the side adjustments on the hood. I believe this is more a matter of learning how the jacket works than a problem of manufacturing or fit, though. Since I figured that out I haven't had any issue. All in all I love my fuchsia ray of sunshine, and recommend it heartily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal for those rainy days This product is perfect. Only runs a little small but that's because it's fitted as opposed to some jackets. I even bought a second one because I love it so much! Perfect for those rainy cold days when you don't want a full heavy jacket.
Date published: 2017-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain Jacket I love this jacket! It's color combination is beautiful! I mainly just wear it on rainy days to work, or to go into town and run errands. it's been great so far! It was slightly bigger in the shoulders compared to its sleeves but nothing that would deter me from buying it again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color was dissapointing I liked the sizing and the quality, but the color was a tad disappointing. Bright Rose is actually Fuchsia Pink. Its slightly tacky.
Date published: 2017-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever I was looking for a light coat for travel. I love this coat!! I'm picky. It's lightweight but warm. Flattering. True to size. I wore it on a hike in the rain it kept me dry. For the price you can't beat it. Believe me I looked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arcadia II Jacket plus For most that jacket is perfect. I am in my menopause and this jacket breath perfectly. Shopping during winter I put on a vest under the coat and it is perfect. However my size is usually 2X, in this jacket I got 3X. One suggestion, I would replace the single zipper by a two way zipper. It is more comfortable when sitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice jacket The jacket is very big on me but if they had a 2x I would have ordered it instead but I really like it.
Date published: 2016-12-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice jacket! Fits a little tight around upper arms. Otherwise true to size. I wanted a light jacket and I got it. Maybe a little too light. ;-) It's more like a wind breaker. Love the colour though. I'm keeping it. Hoping if I lose a little weight it will fit better in the arms.
Date published: 2016-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket was all I wanted in a raincoat. It is very comfortable, It is the right weight for me, meaning it is not to hot for our climate.
Date published: 2016-11-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs a Bit Small This is a beautiful jacket and looked to be everything I needed for Washington coast outerwear. For it being sized at 3X, it just fit too snugly thru the shoulders and arms over a shirt and vest, especially when I normally wear a 2X.
Date published: 2016-11-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst buy Ever ! 1 thing to be sure of before buying this Jacket is that it's not meant for Rains.. its hood is super useless for that purpose.. it slips away with every drop that falls & is not correctly made... wore it twice and constantly thought of the $s that washed away in the rain with this jacket.. :( :'
Date published: 2016-11-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from sadly returned Previous review advised was tight in the arms. It was light and easily packable. Not as sturdy a fabric as I hoped. Decided to return. Customer Service helped to make return effortless. I already have my credit! Will not stop me from future shopping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great rain jacket I recently took this jacket with on a trip to Ireland, I got great use out of it on the trip. It kept me dry and happy, the rain didn't keep me from enjoying my vacation. The temperature wasn't too cold (late september) so this jacket was perfect! It kept the rain and wind out, but for colder weather, you'd probably need to add layers. The only downside was that I didn't feel like the jacket breathed at all, after walking around a bit I got very warm (uncomfortable warm).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light jacket Loved this jacket the first time I saw it but it was a little snug around the hips. Fits more lite a 2X. I have since lost weight and have worn it a lot and it looks like new. No wrinkles and a beautiful colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lite Jacket Marvelous for travelling. Fits great and feels good
Date published: 2016-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable in wind and rain This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. I'm traveling from the summer heat of Florida to cool, rainy Denmark. This jacket closes up at the wrists and neck without squeezing your wrists with elastic. Packs small and light.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What happened to the Sleeves??? The sleeves of this jacket fit like a 1x, but the rest of the jacket fit like a 3x, which is what I ordered. The sleeves were very tight in the upper arm, making the jacket very uncomfortable. I was really excited about receiving the jacket, but now I have to send it back. I don't think that I want to take a chance on trying another jacket.
Date published: 2016-07-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but didn't need to size up I took the advice of other reviewers and sized up to a xxl. I typically wear xl in clothes/jackets and sometimes have issues of not enough room in the chest area. I was swimming in the xxl, it was huge. Exchanged it for an xl which fits great. Good quality, looking forward to the rainy season to try it out!
Date published: 2016-07-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from beautiful color like the coat color is spot on but it is boxy and casual fit. Also seems shorter in length. But I still like it. :)
Date published: 2016-07-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs small I should have listened to the other reviewers, it does run small. I got a 3X and while I can zip it, its way to tight in the shoulders and arms. On the plus side, I bought blue and geranium and the colors are beautiful.
Date published: 2016-07-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snug shoulders, great length Descriptions are accurate on this jacket but I am returning it. The shoulders are snug but the waist is comfortable. Sits 'just right' at the hip.
Date published: 2016-06-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket but runs small This jacket is super nice. I got one for my daughter too. Works great. Beware it runs super small. Probably about a whole size and a half too small.
Date published: 2016-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is above expectation Jacket fit very well which as a plus size person that doesn't always happen. It is lightweight and easy to pack when travelling. And waterproof!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jacket! I bought this for my daughter. She loves that it is light weight and truly water proof!
Date published: 2016-04-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Arms run small I do like the jacket but the upper arms are so narrow that it restricts movement, you can't even move your arms in the jacket. I am sad it didn't fit well because the price was great.
Date published: 2016-03-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very narrow sleeves I should have listened to the other reviews of this jacket. The sleeves are extremely tight and narrow. They are very out of proportion to the rest of the jacket. Any movement, such as paddling, would be extremely restricted or nearly impossible in this jacket. If the sleeves were a normal width, the jacket would be great for outdoor activities.
Date published: 2016-03-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from armholes too small I ordered larger than I needed (2x) because the reviews said the armholes run small. It was still too tight around armholes! I returned it.
Date published: 2016-02-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too small I loved this product when I ordered it. But, it runs very small! I normally wear a 2x but it was extremely tight in the shoulders and seemed like the sewing in the shoulders were off. The design of the jacket did not work well at all. I feel like rain jackets should fit bigger or true to size and this is not the case.
Date published: 2016-02-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful jacket! I do however recommend ordering a size up from what you normally would. Unless you like things that are too small for you lol.. Wonderful jacket otherwise
Date published: 2016-02-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight jacket The jacket is a great value for the sale price. Definitely a lightweight jacket. It does run a bit small, and the arms are narrow.
Date published: 2016-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! I am in love with this rain jacket! It fits perfectly and does the job, light weight and durable. I love it!
Date published: 2016-02-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product runs small. I would have loved this product IF ONLY it didn't run so small. Unfortunately I am sending it back, and am very disappointed that there are none in a larger size.
Date published: 2016-02-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Arms too narrow for comfort Love the jacket but the upper arms are so narrow that it restricts movement. This will be returned. I bought a larger size than usual to prevent this, but it didn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Jacket When they say it's breathable, and waterproof, they meant it! Great little jacket, and keeps the water out. I'm a size small, and that's what I bought. Fits perfect

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product runs small Ordered one size bigger than I needed. Unfortunately it was still really small.
Date published: 2016-01-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket and decent price I purchased this jacket in a size 3X. It fit really well and true to size. This is more of a spring time jacket, it is quite thin. Its not a winter jacket. It is quite loud when you move. I got this coat in Bright Geranium, and it is definately more of a bright pink colour, not orange as the picture suggests. This coat is not restricting in any way, hreat range of motion in this jacket. Great for a rainy or cool day. Keeps you dry. Can be folded up nice and small for storage in a backpack. It is very lightweight. It was wrinkled from being folded up when i recieved it and I hung it up but the wrinkles seemed to stay on the jacket, that was a bit of a downfall for me. Overall pretty satisfied.
