Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Rain Coat! Bought this jacket for a trip to Ireland I have coming up. Used it this weekend in the rain and loved it. It fits perfectly with some extra room so I can wear a fleece underneath if I need to. It also has zippered pockets which I love!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from quality and workmanship I bought this same jacket a few years ago in a different color. When this jacket arrived I was unpleasantly surprised with the decline in quality of the garment. The velcro closers were made of much narrower velcro, there was less stitching on the front of the jacket and it just felt "cheaper". I have not yet worn it in the rain so I do not know how that will work out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what i expected The jacket is beautiful. Fits just as i expected. Roomy enough for layering in cooler conditions. I love that the seams are sealed. The color is great and just as seen on the website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, light travel rain jacket I'm going to Ireland in the winter and cannot wait to pack this and travel with it! It's a little bit small to size but I kind of like that. You can put a few small layers underneath to stay warm. Overall, I am impressed with the quality for the price. Glad I bought this rain jacket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, great price I bought this jacket for backpacking and a trip to Costa Rica. It's lightweight with great placing of the closures so as not to allow water in. I love the hood with tiny visor! Should be great for Arizona monsoons. I ordered one size up so that I could layer if needed and it is still a great fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Arcadia II Rain Jacket LOVE THIS JACKET This is my third Columbia waterproof jacket (and yes, I still own the other two). This is a great shell to wear on it's own in warm weather or with a light sweater in cooler weather. I have worn it during the Florida heat and heavy thundershowers and it keeps you dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I LOVE this rain jacket. This jacket is super light weight, good quality material, and not your every day loud rain jacket. The fit is true to size and I wear it over everything including when I go to work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arcadia II Jacket What I loved about this jacket is that it is truly waterproof. What I didn't love about it is that it is NOT breathable as stated on their tags. I just completed a 100 mi ride for Alzheimers in NH this past weekend. It DID keep me dry but man did it lock in the heat. I bought this a size bigger as I thought on cold rainy days that I would need to wear a sweatshirt under it - now I'm thinking I wouldn't need to as it kept the heat in. It would have helped to have more vents/zippered or holes or something to make it breathable. This jacket isn't necessarily recommended for cycling but I believe this is what they showed the model wearing while mountain biking. Anyway, if you are looking for waterproof - this is it! If you need it to breath while doing an activity - not so much

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arcadia Rain Jacket This jacket is awesome for the price you pay! Durable, waterproof, and lightweight enough that you can wear alone on a warmer but rainy day, or you can still fit lots of layers underneath if you need to stay warm as well.
Date published: 2017-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I love this "rain coat". It's not so heavy or hot that you can't wear it during summer rain. It is excellent at keeping you dry. I love the color. I love the velcro sleeve cuffs to help keep wind and rain from blowing up your sleeves and soaking your clothes underneath. A great purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ordered this rain jacket for my wife and she absolutely loves it. Fits true to size very light weight and breathable. Would highly recommend this product to anyone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Bought this jacket for my hikes at the Glacier National Park and it kept me dry and warm. It fit just perfect. It rained quite a bit during tbe entire 3 hour hike and i stayed dry.
Date published: 2017-06-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit The fit is great to not look bulky when wearing it with light clothing, but large enough to feel comfortable when wearing more layers. Wish it had one more zipper pocket (like inside breast pocket).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great lightweight raincoat! I purchased this raincoat for my long-term stay in New Zealand. It is lightweight and can be rolled up small to fit nicely into a backpack. It easily unrolls and opens up quickly without any wrinkles. If the weather turns cold, it is warm and comfortable with a fleece layered underneath. I highly recommend this raincoat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Rough Weather I live in DC and the rainy summer can get pretty intense. I desperately needed a tough rain jacket that looked good too. This jacket is lightweight and pretty but still holds up great to the tough weather here. Love wearing it and have received a LOT of compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Arcadia II Rain Jacket Fits perfect and is exactly what I was looking for to take on my trip to Iceland!
Date published: 2017-06-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not very thick but totally wind and waterproof This jacket served me well for a week in Iceland -- it's completely wind and waterproof, but it's pretty thin, so it's definitely meant more as a shell than as a jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camping I purchased this for my daughter for her first adventure camping trip. After she returned after spending a week in the mountains camping and hiking. She reportedly said her jacket held very well doing those rainy days. She had no problem staying dry during the time it rained and for the rest of the week. I will definitely be purchasing one for myself and recommending this jacket to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice jacket for the price. This jacket is real light weight so if it is cooler out you will need to layer it with something else. When I wore it in Glacier NP I had a Columbia light weight long shirt sleeve shirt and then the typical fleece Columbia jacket under it and I was warm even though it was raining, cold and windy. Probably about 40 out. Love that it is easily packable! Fits nicely into my Osprey day pack along with everything else. Would recommend it for your basic rain jacket. My wife's review.

Date published: 2017-06-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeping dry I live in the Northwest and a hooded raincoat is part of my outfit most of the year. The fit on the Arcadia is just a little longer than most out there which is great for my long torso.
Date published: 2017-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I hoped for. This jacket is lightweight enough that I can move without feeling restricted or overheated yet will keep the chill out from a cold rain. The fit is great. I was right in between a L and XL on my measurements and decided to go with a L because I don't like things baggy, especially when I'm hiking or moving a lot, it fits just like Id hoped. It is an attractive jacket and the two tone colors are really nice. The construction and durability are top notch. Very please with my rain jacket and plan to get much use out of it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Nice jacket, just wished it had more than the shell. Definitely does not keep you warm, should be worn with layers but it serves its purpose which is to keep you dry.
Date published: 2017-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be better! This jacket is definitely water proof! It's fits well and I wear it when it isn't raining as well. Much better than any other water resistant jacket I have had. Also can be rolled up very small! It's light as well l, and breaks the wind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new rain jacket I previously had a 3 in 1 jacket from Columbia and loved it, but it is now too small for me. I needed to replace that jacket and another from another company. My previous Columbia wore very well, was waterproof and very versatile so I chose to try this Women's Arcadia II which I know will serve me for many years to come. Thank you Columbia for quality wear. I chose XL so I could layer with a sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product consistent with columbia brand Love this jacket !! Jacket is perfect for this rainy spring weather yet light enough for warmer temperatures. Quality only to expect from columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order a Size Up - Great Quality I am 5'4'' (150lbs) and a large fits very well. The hood keeps my head and face dry, and I like that it is long enough to cover most of my butt. I haven't had a chance to test it in a heavy downpour yet but am very satisfied with the quality of the material and style. It is also very lightweight and easy to pack for long hiking trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket Fits true to size and is lightweight while still keeping me dry. I am 5'10, so it can be hard to find jackets that are long enough in the torso and arms, but this one fits well. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around rain coat! This is an excellent, simple rain coat. It has nice structure and works wonderfully as both a windbreaker and a water resistant jacket. I wouldn't recommend for super cold weather (without layers beneath) but perfect for those spring heavy downpours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice raincoat Love the fact that it keeps you cool and is well made. What would make it a 5 is if it fit into its own pocket for easy travel. Maybe some stiffness around rain cap to keep rain out of eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I purchased this jacket for a trip to Ireland in February, so I ordered it a size larger than I normally wear, so that I could layer underneath it and it ended up being exactly the right size! I can fit a nice warm sweater or jacket underneath this shell while hiking and stay perfectly dry. I have used the jacket without layering and it still looks great too. The seam sealing and Omni-tech keeps me totally dry while hiking or while I'm just our running errands and the best part is that it doesn't have that sticky feeling I get with most other rain jackets! All-in-all I have to say that this was a great purchase that I would make again!
