Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 128 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for the rain! After reading all the reviews I was worried about the sizing. The jacket fits perfectly. While not overly "stylish", it is very functional and served me well in the last few rainy days. I received several compliments on this jacket. I am glad I chose this one. January 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great Good rain jacket but thin January 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rain Jacket I love this jacket. It's comfortable and great to wear as a light spring jacket. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best All Around Fabulous wind breaker! Rain can take a hike because the repellent factor is a 10. Order one size up. January 24, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Foxglove color is not as shown on website Haven't had a chance to test this jacket out in the rain yet, but it looks like it should do the job. I ordered a medium so I would have room to wear a layer underneath since the jacket is not designed for warmth. For those who order the foxglove color, be warned: the color is not anywhere close to as shown online. It is much more pink than shown, which was disappointing since I really loved the foxglove color that was shown online. January 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase I brought this because I needed a lightweight rain jacket that doubled as a wind breaker. This was a great purchase! The fit was perfect and I have a large bust. Thank you! January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Awesome quality! Shipping was excellent! Got jacket in two days. Definitely the best place to buy a durable yet nice looking jacket! January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this coat! I bought this coat for the Seattle weather. After reading the other reviews, I decided to order a size above what I usually take and I am glad I did. I usually wear a small but ordered a medium. I have more room to wear a hoodie or jacket underneath and it keeps me warm. I think if I would have ordered a small I would not have been able to do this comfortably. It keeps the rain and cold out very well! The only issue I have is that the hood is saggy on the sides. January 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Foxglove Color Not As Pictured My daughter loves purple - any variation of it. I bought this color because it appeared from the website to be lilac in color. It is really much more pink. We are returning it. :-( So sad. January 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Love this jacket. Great weight. Very pleased with purchase. January 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by arcadia rain jacket very nice super quaility gear January 2, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by D It runs large. Cut is not too flattering. More of a women's style than a teen. January 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket! I bought this jacket in white for my wife as a Christmas gift. She looks fantastic in it! The quality of the jacket is very good and it keeps her completely dry. It does run a little small so take that into consideration when buying. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rain jacket! Living in Oregon it rains a lot and I needed a new rain jacket. I picked this one in the foxglove color and I love it. The color is very bright and fun. The rain jacket is light weight, but does what it is supposed to. it will be great to wear for spring thru fall. Winter it is too light weight unless you have a sweater underneath. I am a short, curvy woman and it fits great. Good length and I am able to zip it up and it still shows my curves. I would buy this jacket again. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great purchase! This jacket is very light and definitely guarantees full protection. I think it was well worth the cost and it is an essential. The small fits me perfectly and I am 5'6. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One happy daughter! Bought this for my very picky 15 year old and she absolutely loves it!! It is exactly what she wanted. Considering buying myself one! December 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent rain jacket I ordered this to replace an evapouration jacket because it was too hot and had a rubber liner. The arcadia is much more breathable and closer to what I was looking for in a rain jacket. It has velcro around the wrists which is nice. The hood is well designed and so far its been totally waterproof. My only complaint is that the nylon in this jacket seems to be a little more rigid and noisy than my previous north face jacket. That may go away as the jacket breaks in though. Overall it met my expectations and is a good buy if you can get it on sale. December 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by rain jacket I bought this jacket because it was on a good sale. I am glad I did not pay full price. The jacket is a cute color. The jacket is good for a rainy day but not if it it is cold outside the jacket is very lightweight. December 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Acadia Rain Jacket I was very disappointed with all the Columbia Items I ordered. I have to send 7 thing back. I ordered a size bigger because of the reviews and they are all still to small... Items are cut very small. Its a shame.... December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great material and really comfy I have yet to test it on winter - where I live, it's summer- but the material is amazing, really comfortable and breathable. I got it in white with gray and it looks even better than in the picture!! The only not-so-good thing is that runs slightly large. Normally, I'm an L size so I got it just like that, but on the back and the arms it is a bit bigger than normal. Other than that, it feels great when you wear it! December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain Jacket Rain jacket works great and does what it should do. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works!! Bought this jacket for Seattle's rainy weather. I was able to test it out yesterday. I'm usually a Medium, but opted for large as the comment stated it runs small. I'm so glad I did. A Large, gave me breathing room yet still looked feminine. Lightweight yet warm. I wore a wool cardigan underneath (although w/ the room I could wear a sweatshirt & it would've worked too). It was in lower 50 degrees. Walked about a mile in the rain and ZERO rain came through. The little drops rolled right off! I just took off my coat and gave it a few shakes to dry the outside of the coat. I was completely dry! Hood was also great coverage. The inside drawstring helped cover my face & cheeks. My only con: I wished this came in a long! I need a long rain coat to cover down to my rain boats! Pls make one! December 13, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by XL feels like a M I ordered this jacket and a coat during Black Friday sale online, great prices! When I received them and tried them on, it felt like a medium. I normally get my coats and jackets in a XL in case I want to wear a sweater. Both were too small to even zip up and the selection of plus sizes are not so great. I had to retune both and lose my deals :-(  December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! Fit true to size, looks like the online photo, functions as advertised. And received sooner than promised. No complaints here! December 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally a rain jacket that works I run a farm, which means that I am outside in all weather, including the downpours of New England springs and summers. I have tried every rain jacket I can get my hands on, and this is the only one that has worked. It is truly waterproof, it is comfortable enough for me to work in, the hood covers my face without blocking vision, and the length keeps me dry even when bending over. I would definitely buy again. The men's version is great too. November 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lightweight rain jacket! I am thin 5'8" and got a Medium since my shoulders are a little broad and my arms and torso are long. It fits perfectly! Maybe a little baggy/wide in the torso, but there's room for a hoodie underneath. It's definitely thin and perfect for fall/spring rain in the PNW. I've had it for over 6 months, I don't know how I lived without it! I plan on wearing it over a down jacket for cold and rainy winter days. November 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket This thing will keep you dry in the rain! November 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Jacket This jacket is my first rain jacket and I love it . I debated between this jacket and a North Face jacket since it was my first time purchasing one and I was not only pleased with the quality of this product but also the price. November 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by not bad the shoulder is a little narrow. besides that, everything is pretty good for this item! October 31, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by It was right until it wasn't I LOVED the color and feel of this rain jacket. My issue is that I couldn't layer underneath it. I bought this for a trip to Iceland and I will need to layer warmer clothes underneath. I returned it so I could order a men's equivalent. So, if you don't have to layer and just need a light outter shell - go for it. If you need to layer, and have to go larger than an XL, you need to shop in the mens section :( October 29, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by This jacket runs small I like the jacket, but will not be able to wear anything but a thin layer underneath as I th it runs a little small. October 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Function and style I wanted a waterproof shell to wear over layers while hiking and watching outdoor sporting events. My granddaughter likes the look of it, not "grandmotherly" at all. Because it's nylon, it's "noisy" when hiking, but not too much. The sleeves are long for me, a plus since I pull them over my fists during rainy and windy weather. There are velcro tabs to pull the wrists tighter. It keeps me very warm and dry, exactly as advertised. I don't get too sweaty either. The hood works well, easily adjustable for wind gusts. The zipper pulls up and down easily, too. I would definitely recommend it. October 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket! Have worn, and enjoyed, Columbia rain jackets for years. When my daughter needed a new one it was a natural choice. October 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Stayin' Dry Two days after receiving this raincoat (XL Geyser) I went camping. Just when I pulled into a campsite, a downpour began. No time for a tarp. I cooked dinner with just the van's lift gate for shelter as I set up camp. This raincoat performed! Feet and legs got "damp" , but not shoulders, or head. Trustworthy! I like the soft, lightweight fabric and the beautiful color. It folds up small, but it's not designed to pack into a pocket. It fits nicely into a stuff sack I had. I bought the XL instead of L after reading reviews. It fits fine and has room for a light jacket underneath. I did research and one reason I chose this was the length. A raincoat should cover your seat! However, if I were designing a raincoat it would: 1. Absolutely have a two way zipper for convenience in sitting, reaching jeans pockets, etc. WHY in the world have raincoats omitted this feature? 2. Use snaps instead of velcro on the front. I plan to change this myself. 3. Have a detachable hood. This coat is stylish. Sometimes I would like to wear it in a little dressier venue or as a simple windbreaker. 4. Figure out how to secure the sleeve lining so it doesn't push out of the end of the sleeve. I will probably compromise the waterproofness by a small stitch or two under the arm. I am very pleased with this purchase, and will enjoy keeping dry on hikes in the rain! October 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by They look Great! The Columbia tops are excellent gifts for my children and grandchildren. I recently purchased a number of tops for my granddaughters and had the logo put on them from the GIGL golf league they are in. October 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket This jacket is very comfortable and keeps me dry! I have received many compliments on the color and fit. I have the bright rose. October 8, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Thin! I was expecting a little more from this jacket. The material is almost paper-thin making it unsuitable for cool days. I am returning this item and getting a thicker replacement. October 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase thus far!!!! I bought this when I came to college and it has been THE best thing that I have purchased since coming to college! It keeps me dry and it keeps you warm when it gets cool. I love that it is Packable because where I attend college it will rain suddenly throughout the day so I love to keep it in my backpack for days that it might rain. October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I bought this jacket for an everyday kind of jacket. I am completely satisfied with this purchase! The jacket is light enough for everyday but also great to layer over a sweatshirt. It is a little bit tight when layered, but still a great fit! Love this jacket! October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my jacket This jacket is perfect for keeping the rain off of me for my job. I wanted something that was light weight but kept me dry and this jacket was it. I definitely recommend this jacket. October 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rain coat Looks and feels thin. Not a flattering material. September 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice rain jacket! I wanted a rain jacket that wasn't bulky and looked feminine. This was perfect. I got the white because all my jackets are dark. A great change. September 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket for the PNW I bought this jacket because I live in Seattle and it rains here ALL THE TIME. I needed something that was durable, washable and water-proof - it has all these wonderful qualities! I ordered a Large so that I could comfortably wear work clothes or a sweatshirt underneath it, it has ties at the bottom so you can cinch up the waste (which is what I did). Overall, this jacket is magnificent and is a great investment for anyone who wants to travel around the world or for the weary resident here in the PNW (or any rainy town for that matter)! September 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and waterproof I purchased this jacket for our trip to Alaska. It performed well in the rain. I like it because it is not bulky, so I could roll it up and stick it in a day pack when I wasn't wearing it. It does run true to size and was a bit snug over the fleece jacket I purchased for warmth. If you plan on layering, you may want to size up. September 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it! I really like this windbreaker, I had another one in black, and their are so usefull! September 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just a little too big I love this jacket. It is super comfortable! The only issue that I had with it is that it runs a little big. Other than that its a great jacket and I will be ordering it in a size smaller. August 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Truly rainproof! I always get compliments on my hibiscus Columbia raincoat. It is quality construction and keeps me dry and the wind out as I walk. The hood is large enough with it's little visor to keep the rain out. My only problem would be that the sleeve length runs quite long. I have long arms and a wider back, so I needed to get an XL size. The large ran too small. Overall this is a great coat. August 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for Rain, but... The product is perfect for the rain in the spring, summer, and fall. It keeps me dry and does it's job. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the ruby red color is actually pinker than it is in the picture. It wouldn't be an issue if I actually liked pink, but I don't. I am searching for one in another color and I will probably gift this one to someone as returning it would be a hassle. August 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes me look forward to rainy days! I have an active dog and am outside walking or running at least 30 minutes, seven days a week. Bought this for drizzly days and LOVE the color (Groovy Pink). Plenty of room for layering underneath as the temperatures drop. Wore this on a recent trip to Colorado and it kept me dry in the drizzle! August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket, love the unique color! I love the shape of this jacket! It's okay for curvy ladies like me and doesn't hug too tight in the hips. I wear size 12 in pants and a L jacket was just right. Many reviewers were disgruntled about the color "red hibiscus." Don't be fooled - red here does not mean true red. This is what I call watermelon red and has kind of a pink/orange hue to it. It's bright and beautiful! August 10, 2015
