Women's Arcadia™ II Rain Jacket is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This rain jacket was perfect for my needs. I was going to Europe and just needed a lightweight rain jacket that would block the rain enough without also needing an umbrella. This jacket was perfect for that and also acted as a windbreaker as well. It de-wrinkled from being stuffed in my bag fairly quickly too. I only have two complaints. 1) the velcro on the front kept sticking to the velcro on the arm when the jacket wasn't zipped. It wasn't the worst but just a mild annoyance. 2) There are small pink color stains all over the blue jacket and I have no idea where they came from. It seemed like every time I took the jacket out of my bag (which isn't pink), I found a new very small pink spot. I haven't washed the jacket yet to know if they come off but they are small enough to where it doesn't ruin the jacket if they don't though. This might not even be the jackets fault since I don't know where they came from but it was just annoying to know that color from something rubbed off on it so easily. I am 5'7, about 150 pounds and I got a medium. It is roomy enough where I can wear a thicker cardigan under it. I would not have been able to wear anything additional under it if I had gotten a small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this rain jacket! I have it already in black but wanted some color this time so went with Sea Ice. I love the hood, the mesh lining, and that it's lightweight and easy to bring along just in case it rains. I've worn it in heavy rain without any leaking. I'm very pleased with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most pinkish rain jacket :) I believe it is more than a rain jacket. It makes you feel comfy, cozy and look good. I wouldnt look for anything else from a jacket and that is giving you more than you need! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light jacket I love this jacket! I usually wear a medium or large top, I ordered large and it fits me perfectly! I can easily wear a sweatshirt underneath it if needed on cooler days. It works well in the rain and as a windbreaker. I wear it on motorcycle rides and don't get too warm because it is so light and breathable. Great jacket! I definitely recommend this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Feel It's an ok jacket for the sale price but I am returning this. I find the mesh liner scratchy and the fit a little snug and I am thin. I like the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I ordered the sea ice color I think (mint and light blue) It fits great, I'm 115lb and 5'2 and was worried a small would be too big but it is the perfect size! Haven't tested out the waterproofness yet but it seems to be a comfy jacket, very lightweight. There isn't a thick layer inside just an fyi for some reason I thought there was. Hood isn't detachable, but I think I'd prefer my rain jacket to always have a hood attached. Can't wait until it rains! Oh and I got an AMAZING deal on this, not sure I would pay full price just because it is EXTREMELY lightweight so I don't see why it's normally priced at $90.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Raincoat This product was bought to replace Arcadia lost on a recent kayak expedition. When the Arcadia replacement raincoat arrived in the mail, it was apparent that some improvements had been made, especially the additional mesh lining, N/A on the original which was lost. The mesh lining added unwanted weight, so was glad to have my original lost raincoat found and returned to me. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from rain jacket I purchased this jacket for an upcoming trip to Europe being unsure of the weather in the fall. I love the fit of the jacket and the fact that it falls a little longer than most jackets. It is roomy enough for a sweater underneath. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arcadia Jacket I bought this 2 weeks back and got to try it last week in heavy rain. It is very light, breathable and gives 100% protection Highly recommend it. I am a small, but bought size medium and it feels very comfotable worn over shirts, light sweaters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't size up I ordered an XL so it would fit over my clothes. However, it was way too big! A regular size Large would have worked better, but it is sold out on-line in my color. Nice jacket for the rain and also lightweight for travel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the color and easy care! The function is great. A lite rain? No worries. Roomy enough to wear sweater or light jacket to layer. Wish the sleeves weren't so short. As a last minute addition to my suitcase for vacation I stuffed it in, hours later I pulled out a wrinkled mess - after hanging for less than 30 minutes it looked great! I would buy this again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was expecting more Was expecting much more from this rain jacket. When I received it, it seemed extremely stiff. I washed it a couple of times, and it still seems stiff. And like I have mentioned before, the draw cords are no longer on both sides of the hips and that frustrates me because now its hard to evenly adjust both sides with only one draw string cord (which took me FOREVER to figure out). Also, the velcro sticks to everything. I preferred the buttons a lot more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is perfect for the rain I received the product and ordered the Lychee color and it was a little more pink/ orange than anticipated however it's an excellent product. The functionality is excellent and it was the first time I was in a rain coat that I felt like I wasn't toasty hot because of the material. The material is very breathable which makes it more enjoyable to wear. Would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice rain jacket Nice rain jacket. Light weight.Easy care, I got something on it and it just wiped off with damp cloth. The one thing I do not ilike is that there is no choice of stow away hood. It also works for a wind jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! I love this jacket so much! It was a little snug when I first ordered it, so I gave that one away and got a large instead so it would be more comfortable for me. I love the large. It's perfect! It's so comfortable and great for the misty mornings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Was trying to find a good looking, wind and rain proof jacket for months - that wasn't going to cost an arm and a leg! Luckily I looked at the Columbia website a few weeks earlier and signed up for their emails ... sure enough the jacket I saw before was now on sale. It has everything I was looking for and couldn't be happier! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket for Rain Columbia Sportswear Arcadia 11 Jacket is a high quality item and I made a good choice by investing in this. I purchased this to protect me from the rain and because of the hood and material it was made with it has been working well for me. The rain just rolls off the jacket. It is also easy to maintain, you can place it in a machine for delicate wash and hang it up, do not put it in the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful so far I purchased the Arcadia II predominately to take on summer camping trips. We camp a lot in the Sierras, and afternoon rainstorms are common there. Interestingly, in the 3 weeks I have been out so far this year, it did not rain at all! Perhaps the fact that I finally broke-down and bought a rain jacket was like an anti-rain insurance policy :o) I can't comment on the water-proof aspects of this jacket yet, but I do really like the fit and design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best rain coat I've had First of all, I love the color of this rain coat (I have the purple/purgundy color). I also like the fit and haven't had any problems with the arms being too long or the fit being too snug. I wish it was a little roomier in case I layer under it, but I'm still comfortable in the jacket. There are two things I don't like about this jacket: one is that it has Velcro tabs over the zipper. I think Velcro is a nice idea, but the tabs get stuck to the lining and my other clothes. I think snaps would've been a better option, especially if I just want to quickly put the coat on for some rain protection. The other issue I have with this coat is that the pocket says it's packable, but there were no instructions with the coat or online (that I could find) to show me how to pack it. My two issues are definitely not deal breakers for me, but I wanted to be honest. I would still absolutely recommend this jacket to anyone needing a nice, light rain layer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute raincoat Though I haven't had a chance to wear it in the rain, the jacket is really cute on.. It is not meant for cold weather, but can be worn with a layer underneath. The bright rose colour is cute, kind of like a raspberry colour, not too bright or flashy. I find that I did go up a size to make it comfortable and to have the ability to layer beneath it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty rain jacket Love this rain jacket! It's perfect for Spring! It's waterproof, light weight & has a very flattering cut. I'm 5'7'' & 125lbs & the XS is a great fit. I love the bluebell color. It's so pretty! I can foresee using this rain jacket for many seasons. Very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great find I've been looking for a rain that is stylish but also functional. It has breathability too so I don't sweat while wearing it. The maroon color is very nice. I also like the pockets because they are deep and protect my items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Rainjacket Ever! There's a saying in Florida: If you don't like the weather, wait a while. My old black rain jacket was like wearing a plastic bag so I felt it was time for an upgrade. And what an upgrade this lovely jacket is! Light, airy, and the lining makes it seem as though it's air conditioned. And the pink is such a lovely color...it'll make a rainy day fun. Can't wait for a really rainy day to be ever so stylish whilst puddle jumping !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice waterproof jacket and keep warm This is a nice jacket with good quality. I like the hand pockets that has zippers. However, the color (bright plum) turns out it is a little off from what I saw on the computer screen. It is understandable and is fine with me. I would appreciate if there is a video on the website to demonstrate how to fold the jacket and pack it in the packable pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall great I have one for myself and this is for my girlfriend, it handles rain pretty well, she is about 5'5", 120lbs, and small seems to be a little large. Should have bought XS instead.
