Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit I wanted to purchase a coat that I could wear on cooler nights in the Summer and that would get me through Fall as well, this coat is perfect! The colour is beautiful and the fit is exactly what I was sized for by the sizing guide. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is absolutely amazing This jacket is thin but still keeps you surprisingly warm. The waterproof ability is absolutely great, it repels the water great. The only downside is that it is a little tite around the shoulder area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! Beautiful jacket. I have wanted a Columbia jacket for years as my friends all like your products and have had them for years. Quality & function are outstanding! Runs small so I sized up 2 sizes. Roomy but wanted the fleece jacket to go under it for warmth on a cold rainy day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE MY NEW JACKET.... I ordered this jacket for my upcoming cruise to Alaska next year. It fits perfectly with my fleece jacket that is also Columbia. The length is perfect being 5' 8 and it hood really covers my face. My only concern is that the hood doesn't have a pull string like my windbreaker jacket also from Columbia. Otherwise, very happy. Thanks for the great products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket - just what I wanted I ordered this is one size larger and it is large but I wanted to be able to layer underneath so it's perfect for my needs. I love this jacket! The only thing I would change is that I would add a double zipper. I hate sitting in the car with my jacket all bunched up in my lap. Other than that it seems perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice rain jacket I ordered up a size because I live in FL where it rains all summer and didn't want the jacket to cling. It's plenty oversized. I also want to be able to layer if it gets chilly. The color (whitened pink) is great for hot climates! I love the mesh lining and would like it to go all the way down the arms not stop at elbow length so the taffeta lining doesn't get clammy in humidity. A double zipper would be nice so it can be opened from the bottom a bit when sitting. The hood is a bit bulky and I would prefer if it could be stowable in the collar when not needed. I would also like the arms to be a bit fuller as the body is plenty large to layer but arms will be a bit snug if I add anything more than a thin fleece even though I ordered up a size. None if the things I would like changed are show stoppers, though and I love the jacket!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket! I bought this for my daughter b/c she has to wait at the bus stop and needs something that will keep her dry. So far, so good. I read the jacket runs a little small so bought a size up and it is perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Tight This doesn't fit your plus size ladies, tight in bust and arms area

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring on the rain! The first thing I thought when this came in the mail was that the color (wild geranium), while still pretty, was a bit brighter than it seemed on the site. When I put it on, I noticed it's a bit tighter and more tapered than my other Columbia tops and jackets of the same size, especially in the shoulders and upper arms. That said, it still fits well, but if you want a loose rain jacket or want to wear thick layers underneath, definitely order a size up. Compared to other packable rain jackets, this one is bulky and heavy. It was raining heavily the day it arrived, so I tested it out right away, and it works very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Torrential Monsoons I wore this jacket in a horrific monsoon, in Cambodia, while ATVing and the only part of me that was dry was under the jacket.
Date published: 2017-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting color and very roomy. I wanted to buy a large enough jacket to fit over my coats to provide waterproof protection. This provides a lot of room. The material it very thin, so it can be worn on mild days. I wan't sure if I would love the color, but I really like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket - definitely waterPROOF I had an older Columbia waterproof rain coat (used in Ireland, Vietnam, Indonesia), but it was mid-thigh length & I wanted a shorter rain "jacket" which would be smaller to pack in my duffle. I found this jacket during the website's Summer Sale & purchased the mint-green color (Sea Ice). The length of this jacket is what I wanted & the color is very pretty; the darker color on the sides helps give my body some shape & a waistline, so I don't look like a scoop of pistachio ice cream. (!) It folds up smaller & is lighter than my older coat. It has performed well during several summer thunderstorms here in the Rockies - I was still dry afterwards, so it's definitely waterPROOF (not just water "resistant"). As always with Columbia outwear I bought 'up' one size to the 2X so I'd have room to layer clothing underneath during cooler spring/fall weather with heavier tops, a fleece vest and/or a sweater underneath. (I wear a 1X size in Columbia pants or shirts, for comparison.) It fits me like other outerwear does in the Columbia line, including the circumference of the sleeves being large enough so the long sleeves of a shirt or lightweight sweater will fit inside comfortably. Thank you, Columbia, for remembering even plus-sized gals like to be active in the outdoors! ♥♥

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so soft and comfortable I have been looking for a jacket like this for awhile. It is everything I wanted it to be,soft comfortable, perfect for cool damp weather.You can even wear a sweatshirt underneath if it was a bit more chilly. This jacket is great quality,nicely made and beautiful colors to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jacket for rainy weather here in Florida showers come and go this jacket is in my car at all times just in case the fit is great for me and it stays cool
Date published: 2017-07-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from very nice material Beautiful color (Sea Ice) was surprised jacket is two tone with sides and sleeve backs a darker blue. No problem just unexpected. I was glad I read the reviews about sizing as it does run small. I'm 5'8" 165 lbs so ordered up 2 sizes to 2 X. Actually is large through torso but that's fine for outerwear, however the shoulders and arms just fit. I don't think anything other than tee shirt will fit beneath. Size is nowhere near 20 -22 W as stated maybe 16 at best.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you have larger arms or bust, size up! I really wanted to love this jacket. It's cute and functional, and of course, well made. But it was waaaay too small across the arms and back. Unfortunately, I'll have to send it back, thus the 3 star review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my jacket jacket is comfortable and fits very well. Being a larger size, I usually have trouble with fit but this jacket is just right. I will be putting this to good use over the coming years. Love the red camellia colour. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Raincoat I love that I finally have a plus-sized raincoat! I ordered the 2X and 3X, as I wasn't sure what size I would be, and found the 3X fit better around the hips (I wear a size 18-20 pant). When I did the measurements, I was a 2X for the bust and waist, and 3X for the hips, so I would recommend going with what ends up being your largest measurement. I just got back from a rainy weekend hiking in my new coat, and I found it kept me dry. It's just the rain protection though, no extra insulation, so you want to be sure you can fit layers underneath if it's going to be cold. I had no problem with a thick hoodie on underneath. The only potential downside is that the zipper seems a bit lower quality, but I had no problems using it this weekend. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! The first time I wore my jacket, it was very windy. Usually, I'm chilly in my old coat. Not with this one!! Also, I was just our doing errands in the rain for about 45 minutes, and the rain didn't saturate this jacket. With my old coat, I would have been soaked through. I love it!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not good enough I found the fit to be too small even though it is a plus size. Arms are tight and across the back is tight , I need looser fitting jackets. It also isn't warm, and wont accommodate wearing a hoodie under it , it Would be nice if it had a fleece lining or fit larger to be able wear something under other than one shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice jacket just not for me This jacket runs a little small in the shoulders and upper arms. Not sure i would be able to wear anything but a thin t-shirt underneath. Also, I was looking for a slightly longer length as I wear alot of tunic style tops. Also, the jacket has velcro on the panel that flaps over the zipper. I have ruined many tops with the velcro from jackets. Please Columbia, use snaps rather than velcro. If you are looking for a lightweight shorter rain jacket and don't mind the velcro closure, this might be ok. But I didn't love the fit, finishing or colour of the jacket so back it goes. I will try other Columbia styles of rain jackets in Plus size to see if I can get one that fits my needs. When I preview this review, the site indicates that I was "incentivized"/received sample product. This is in no way the case. I purchased the jacket that I am reviewing and will be returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I had been eyeing this coat on the website for months, and finally made the purchase. It was exactly what I hoped for. The fit is perfect, the colour is great (I got the blue) and it definitely breathes. I bought it specifically for travel, so the packable feature was very important to me. My only criticism is the "packable pocket". On other coats there is an actual pocket just for packing. This coat is supposed to pack into the actual jacket pocket, meaning that the mesh lining is exposed when the jacket is packed. I am just concerned that when in a bag with all my other travel stuff the lining could be damaged. I was hoping for a more sturdy packable option, but hopefully this will be ok. Other than that, it's a great coat. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket! Spring in Canada means you can go to work in the morning needing a winter coat and go home in the evening needing a raincoat. The fact that this jacket easily packs away into my backpack is super useful. I got caught in a downpour yesterday and was glad I had it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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.

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 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.
