Rated 4 out of 5 by 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). October 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lite Jacket Marvelous for travelling. Fits great and feels good September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket! Great quality and nice looking! August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Columbia I love everything I've bought from Columbia. The fits are perfect!! August 3, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. July 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! July 28, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. :) July 19, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. July 18, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. June 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. May 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!!! April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best jacket! I bought this for my daughter. She loves that it is light weight and truly water proof! April 2, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. March 2, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. March 2, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. February 26, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. February 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 February 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket! I am in love with this rain jacket! It fits perfectly and does the job, light weight and durable. I love it! February 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. February 19, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. February 16, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product runs small Ordered one size bigger than I needed. Unfortunately it was still really small. January 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. January 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by very happy a little small in the arms but I love it anyway December 21, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good for price Good spare rain jacket. Go at least one size up as runs small. I have XL Columbia shell bought 15 years ago I still wear but with Asian manufacturing I now have to buy 2X to zip or move arms. Caution no free returns, so guess size right! December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket I was little worried after reading reviews about being small but I ordered my normal size and fits great. It is on lightweight side so if you were to wear heavy sweater under you might size up. I like the lightweight perfect not hot like my other rain jacket. November 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rain coat I liked the quality of the coat. I ordered a 1X which I usually wear a XL or 1X, but as in the reviews the sleeves ran a little small - as in tight around upper arm area. The rest of the coat fit fine except the sleeves. I returned the coat and did not order another one in the next size because I was afraid it would be too big. September 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Light Weight Jacket I purchased this jacket in a 2X, it is a little large for me. I am naturally a 1X but decided to go a size up for comfort and layers. I would recommend this jacket for early fall or light rain. September 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Choice This rain jacket was even better than I expected but exactly what I hoped for. The size is just right, the color is so pretty and bright (perfect for a dreary, rainy day :). The quality is pure Columbia. Love it! September 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by vwhiteman Given as a gift. Recipient loved color and how it fit. Venting helps keep from getting too hot. Excellent waterproofing keeps wearer dry. Bought 1 size larger so could be worn with sweatshirts, sweaters into the fall. September 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has great features Excellent waterproof material breathable material August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Arcadia ll rain jacket I bought this as a lightweight spring/summer rain jacket to throw in the car or cram into a bag for traveling and it's been great. The jacket fits true to size, is so well made, comfy and it breathes. It's great for traveling as it takes up very little packing space. August 18, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Tight arms The upper back and arms are a little tight August 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Weather Protection I spend a lot of time outdoors with my job and like to know that I am prepared for the changing weather conditions in my area. I can wear this jacket both indoors and out and feel comfortable. It's light and has roomy pockets since I carry a lot of things around with me during my workday. I'm set for rain and wind yet comfortable in the sun. I have received numerous compliments about the jacket from co-workers and the price can't be beat for the quality of this jacket. August 11, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Jury still out ... While the body seems to fit true to size, the upper arm segment of the sleeves fit very small. I normally wear a 2X comfortably and the sleeves of the 3X are still a little snug. With plenty of room through the body, I still will not be able to layer this as I had hoped due to the sleeve fit. I would have returned it but the sale price was excellent and I'm hoping that the rain proof aspect will meet my expectations and needs. Have been unable to test that as of yet ... Love the colour. August 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rain Jacket The jacket fits well around waist. But arms are very tight. I even had on sleeveless top. Would never work with a sleeve on August 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great structure and utility for raingear Definitely buy one size larger to get a comfortable fit, especially if you plan to wear something warm underneath. I prefer my jackets to be roomy so I bought a size up. The jacket is structurally sound, the color is true to what's seen online and I'm confident that it will keep me dry on those very wet days. August 3, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by NOT WATERPROOF I've had this jacket for almost a year now. It handles a few sprinkles, but for any kind of steady rain, the water soaks through after being outside in the elements after 30 + min. I bought it for day hikes, but I can't trust it to keep me dry (and therefore warm!) for longer than a short while. This jacket is only suited for running errands in town. April 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pink jacket Nice light jacket, perfect for spring March 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by arms a little tight I read all the reviews before I ordered and it appeared pretty consistent that it runs small so I ordered one size up from what I would have chosen. That size fits very well except for one thing and that is the arms - up towards the shoulders, it is a bit snugger. I will no doubt layer items under this jacket and it will work but it is snugger than I would like. I thought about returning it but in general the overall look and fit is good but it would be nice if you could enlarge that area of the jacket. February 6, 2015
