Women's Arcadia™ II Rain Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 231.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! I have to walk to school everyday and this jacket keeps me completely dry. The water just rolls right off if! I like me clothes to be a bit form fitted to show my curves and for a rainjacket it seems pretty good. And even though it's a rainjacket it's like enough to use as a wind breaker too. I would definitely recommend this to many of my friends and family!☺️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Perfect rain jacket layer! I live in the Midwest and we get rain through the summer so I needed something to keep me dry that wouldn't make me hot. Love how the pockets are lined with mesh so when input my wet hands in the pockets they actually dry! Fits a little big but I'm petite and wanted room to add warm layers beneath for fall and spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking & functioning Jacket I wanted a nice looking rain jacket that was both fashionable and functional, and this one did not disappoint. I love the back belted detail, its adjustable and gives just enough shape. This is a rain shell, not meant for warmth, just dry. For warmth you need to layer. The fit was as expected thru the body, it skims but is not tight and the arms have plenty of room to layer under and they won't get tight, and this is coming from someone who often has this problem. All in all a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rain Jacket This jacket is so wonderful, it really can be used for anything. It not only blocks the rain but will block a light breeze and has just enough space to be worn over any clothing too! I love the functionality and it is a great overall purchase! Thank you Columbia, you knocked it out of the park again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great waterproofing! This is a great shell. Waterproofing works great and it's still breathable. I wouldn't rely on it to keep you warm; but then again, that's not the point of a shell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight Rain Jacket I purchased this jacket because we have been having a lot of rain lately and I wanted something that was lightweight. I ordered an XL. It's a perfect fit around the bust area and I was hoping for a little more room. My clothes were dry when I wore the jacket without an umbrella. This was a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product fits perfectly for my needs! I bought this to replace a lost rain jacket that I loved. But this Columbia jacket is even better! Meets my needs for a rainy hiking day or errand running days! Comfortable fit, love the style, pockets and waterproof ability. Price was right within my budget and high quality product! Thank you Columbia!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as promised! This jacket protects me from getting wet when out and about in downpours. Zippered pockets keeps valuables dry; interior lining 'breathes' so is comfortable to the wearer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very thin If you are looking for a super light rain jacket, then this is the one for you. I bought this in the hopes that it would be similar to another jacket I purchased two years ago, which was thicker and had a soft fleece inside. Alas it was not meant to be. Though it's not what I was expecting, it is still a great spring rain jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome purchase! I absolutely love this jacket! Great fit, runs true to size. I would definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Jacket For the Portland rain, I couldn't have found a better jacket! It's lightweight but warm and doesn't leave you feeling steamy inside! I wore it out on a rainy day and it kept me warm and dry. It fits great and it's too loud or "crinkly."
Date published: 2017-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I ordered this as a windbreaker/rain jacket to wear while motorcycling. I am 5'4", 112 pounds and for the most part wear a small or extra small. I ordered the small, but because I need this jacket to fit over a heated motorcycle jacket/liner, or a fleece, I wasn't sure it would be large enough. It is, but still looks great when worn alone. I like that it's rather shaped in the middle, not boxy, so looks nice when wearing alone. Hasn't rained yet, so I can't testify as to how well it does in the rain. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my rain jacket! I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall, 139 lbs and the large fit me perfectly. I love how it fits, feels and looks. The lavender is a beautiful color. It's well made and you don't have to worry about the zipper pulling apart. I ordered a medium and it was too snug around the hips on me so I gave it to my 36 year old daughter and she loves hers too. She is 5 feet 2 inches and 135 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to jacket for just about everywhere. I like the fit and the feel. It doesn't seem as fitted in the waist as the picture which suits me just fine - I need a little more room there. Like the zippered pockets and, for me, it's warm but light-weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I bought this jacket because it has been raining tremendously here lately. I had other water resistant jackets and for the price of those I figured why not just get a waterproof jacket and this one fit the bill. It's lightweight yet very durable which I love! Also it's is a great price especially since most waterproof jackets I've seen begin at $100. I bought a size large because I have a large chest (36 D) ( I'm 5"0) and I didn't want the jacket to be too tight, fits great!

Date published: 2017-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and functional The material is soft but durable. It is light enough for the summer, and enough room in the shoulders to move freely. I like the drawstring around the hood to tighten it when in wind and rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry as a Bone I needed a solid jacket to take on a trip to Alaska that would be light, but still keep me warm & dry. This jacket totally fit the bill. I got stuck hiking in a torrential downpour for a couple hours. Yes, hours -- but all of my layers underneath the coat remained completely dry. This is a fantastic investment if you are looking for something light & functional to keep you dry. I've also worn it on some fourteener summit hikes & it worked well in keeping me warm despite high winds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light-weight rain jacket I love this periwinkle blue color and get compliments on how pretty it is. It has both a front zipper and Velcro straps. The sleeves have Velcro straps to tighten around your wrists. Nice pockets too. Definitely light-weight. I weigh 130- 5 ft. 3 and Small is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Arcadia 2 Rain Jacket I purchased this jacket for my sister who moved to Colorado without a rain jacket. The size small was too small even though she isn't a big lady. So I reordered a medium in the purple lotus skyward in size medium. The color is beautiful, fits great with room to layer underneath. We are satisfied with our purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought it twice! My wife and I bought it for our niece and she liked it so much we bought a second one for our other niece. Simple as that. They are teenagers and they loved it so much they called us to tell us. That's right you heard me, teenagers called once to thank us and again to doubly thank us. Can't beat that recommendation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps water out, but hood is too small! Went snowboarding on a snowy, windy day and this jacket did its job with keeping water out. The material was thin and lightweight so I was a bit skeptical. My jacket size are regularly a size larger than my shirt sizes so I have room for comfort and I was surprised that this jacket still fitted well along with my layers (I had on 4 layers of shirt, long sleeve, hoodie, and sweater). Only complaint was how small the hoodie part seemed to be. With a beanie on, the hoodie barely fit. But other than that, this was an awesome jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rain Jacket Bought the rain jacket several weeks ago and will just get a chance to first wear it tomorrow finally. I love the way it looks. The arms are very long, I have to fold them. I do wish that it had a better lining in it. The under arms fit a little snug.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Rain Jacket but doesn't pack into pocket This is a decent rain jacket. Very light (good for spring or fall weather) and definitely protects against the rain. But I'm a bit disappointed as I bought this jacket because the description says "packs into hand pocket." – forget about ever fitting this jacket into pocket. They should just send it with a little bag that it can pack into. Also runs a bit small. I bought a medium so that I could fit my Ultra Light Down underneath if necessary, but it definitely fits like a Small in my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stains Easily I have this jacket in white, flint grey and love the way it fits and keeps me dry. For some reason there are stains to the jacket that will not come out. This is very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Giraffe Neck The color is cute and the jacket fits well BESIDES THE HOOD. This hood will only fit if you have a giraffe neck. There isn't no way to change the way this hood fits. It will not stay on which defeats the purpose of a rain jacket if your head is getting wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket! Although I live in California where it never rains, this jacket keeps me dry on every hiking trip. It has adjustable straps which is very helpful. Looks great! I am 5'6 and 115 pounds and ordered a medium because I like to layer alot. Fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you dry! I bought this jacket specifically for a trip to BC during their rainy October. It is lightweight so I got a large so that I could layer clothes underneath. Worked great. I stayed completely dry. The hood has elastic that you can tighten down with wind and it does not drip in your face!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for cold rainy weather, very thin I could ball this jacket up and put it in my pocket! I love the color and it is exactly what I was looking for but my reason for saying that is that it is definitely not worth the $60 price tag!! That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars; the price.
Date published: 2016-11-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket! This is a really good rain jacket. I got it last week and wore it the next day on a 3-mile hike in coolish weather and light rain. It kept me warm and dry, and the pockets were great for holding keys, dog leash, etc. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket This jacket will be traveling all over the globe, I am tall (5.9) it is a nice length and the sleeves are long enough, it is light weight has some warmth when just a little cool, but it breathes and does not make you sweat or sticky, can be worn indoors without looking like an outdoor coat and will easily slide in the outside pocket on your suitcase, will also fit in my purse, also folds into its own pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I am absolutely in love with this jacket. It looks really nice and I've gotten compliments everytime I wear it. It also has a nice shape and it doesn't feel bulky. I bought the ryby red color and it's a very girly and pretty color.
