Rated 5 out of 5 by This product was true to size I love this raincoat, it's very comfortable and perfect for warmer weather when it's rainy. October 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great multi-use jacket Love this rain jacket. Lightweight but also substantial for cool days as an effective windbreaker. I wore it hiking yesterday (temps in the 40s and windy) over a lightweight fleece top and was totally comfortable throughout the entire hike. Good fit with excellent freedom of movement when putting on and removing my backpack--no hindrances at all. Great value. Highly recommended. October 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hooded Spring/Rain Jacket Love this jacket! Just right lightweight, waterproof in a great fuschia color. Great for spring, summer and fall. Packs up into its own pocket so travels well. I had lost my previous Columbia jacket and was worried I couldn't replace such a perfect jacket but found this as soon as I went to the Columbia site. October 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lori.G This jacket is very nice. But it does run very small. I am usually a large because of my chest. So I ordered an xl so I could put a sweater underneath but that's not happening. I have to return it. October 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cute coat Light weight, breathable. Price was right. Cute color. Not a coat for warmth, it is a summer weight but you can layer under because it runs just a little big. Bought for daughter as a college campus jacket. She weighs about 125 and the medium fits nicely with room for sweater or fleece under it. October 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Rain Jacket I loved the color and how it fits. An excellent purchase. October 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome jacket! Bought this jacket for rainy days and runs. I have been ecstatic ever since it started raining in the area. My dog and I run every morning and even in inclement weather, we need our exercise. The rain made us house dwellers but now we can run and stay dry with this jacket. Best part about the jacket is that it breathes. Every past rain jacket I have had makes you feel clammy and sweaty. Not this one! October 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this Jacket, but... I love this jacket -- its just what I was looking for and the color is true to the website. However, I am tall and it runs a little short for me. I need to order a different jacket to cover my tushy! Quality is great though. September 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for the rain This is an awesome rain jacket and it's perfect for fall weather. Not bulky at all. September 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Patticakes Originally ordered a medium and had to return it for a large due to the fact it was snug with a light weight sweater on underneath. Plan on wearing an insulated t-shirt or lightweight sweater/jacket in fall and spring.The jacket overall is light weight and and has a smooth, outside texture. Anticipate it will repel the rain. Love the bright geranium color. Adding color outside during the gray days. September 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lightweight summer jacket It is very light weight and very cute on. It fits true to size and is exactly what I was looking for when it comes to a nice light summer jacket August 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thrilled! I'm absolutely over the moon with this new rain jacket! It's pretty (in purple) but it's VERY lightweight and completely waterproof!!! I can layer it over a sweatshirt if the weather is cool or just wear it over a T-shirt if the weather is warm. The hood has a center part that helps keep the rain off your face. Love it! August 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Arcadia Rain Jacket in Foxglove This is a beautiful jacket, I wasn't sure about the color, but everyone seemed to like it. It is a great buy at the sale price especially. I love it. I'm 5'1 and 117# I bought the medium and there is enough room for a light fleece underneath. VERY HAPPY August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great raincoat The raincoat does it's job of keeping you dry and it breathes so you don't sweat in it. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great jacket love the color and fit of this jacket. Perfect weight for summer stones and I can potentially wear over something thicker in cooler weather. July 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Way too small Very small, tighter than expected. No room for wearing, say a sweater, underneath. This is like a shell garment and should actually be somewhat oversized. July 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just received and very pleased Received my Miami color jacket today. Have been looking for light weight jacket for summer rains for a couple of years now. Finally found it! color is great, runs a little small so even though I am size S or 4, i ordered M and it fits perfectly. very light, breathable, mesh lining. Guaranteed waterproof. Hope so as i will test it at first opportunity. Long enough to cover the derriere so that you can sit down on the jacket and not get wet. short enough to be just right. The only wish i have is that it came with a built in pouch to carry around, but it does fold very small. it is very light too. Highly recommend it. July 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Columbia Arcadia II Jacket I absolutely love it. Thank you. June 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bought for Daughter My daughter usually wears a small. Looked at the reviews and almost everyone says it ran small so I purchased a medium. My daughter like her clothes fitted. She says a medium is a bit loose but she says she love the jacket. June 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket! Quality and fit just as I expected. And I love the color (bright geranium). I would definitely recommend this jacket. June 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Color is unexpected Color is a little off from the image, but other than that, it's a pretty good light jacket. May 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth the money! This raincoat is really cute and waterproof! It's very lightweight too!! May 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rain jacket Love this rain jacket. Great color. I am 5'2" 110lbs. and xsm fits good. Material seems rain repelling. Keeps wind out also. I live inOregon so definitely need this kind of coat. Would definitely recommend. March 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This jacket really is waterproof! Living in FL, you never know when its going to rain. I do a lot of fishing and got to test this rain jacket while fishing on a lake. It kept my upper body 100% dry. As long as the pockets are zipped up, you're safe from rain. It is also lightweight and comfortable. I have no complaints at all. March 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love, love, love this jacket! I've worn this jacket several times. It keeps me dry without being hot. Is light-weight and easy to carry and/or pack. And the hood fits - when wearing it, I can turn my head, look up, or look down and the hood stays put without interfering with my vision. The aqua color is very pretty. I highly recommend it. March 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain Jacket This rain jacket is AWESOME! Keeps you dry, and the hood is large and stays up on your head! I work outside a lot and this does an awesome job of keeping my layers dry! March 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for Florida rain. I love this jacket, I do. I have an older version in purple that has an inside zippered pocket I wish this jacket came with. As a swim coach in Fla I am constantly switching in and out of this rain coat. I am "cooler" wearing this one compared to the purple, but as anyone in Florida knows it is very humid and I wish this had more of the "cooling" technology because I get very hot wearing both of them, somedays its almost better to just get rained on.... I wear a light weight shirt under this as it is a bit narrow for me and anything heavier would make it feel too tight. I have a large chest. March 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rain Jacket Good quality runs a little snug, but the next size up was to long in the sleeves. February 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Nice Jacket! Jacket is super nice--cuter in person than the picture! February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME! Pleased! LOVE THIS JACKET! I wear a size large an xlarge in shirts an size 14 and 16s in jeans fits me perfect i ordered a xlarge. February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The perfect raincoat I bought two, one for me and one for my niece and I am extremely impressed. The day after it arrived, we had thunder storms the entire day and the coat did exactly what it promised. I was completely dry where the coat was, my pants on the other hand were soaked, but I love this raincoat. February 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by It's a great coat. It's a great coat but the sizes are much smaller than I am used to and had to send it back 3 times to find the correct size which was very frustrating February 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by By far the best rain jacket offered This is the best rain jacket I have purchased from any company thus far. It is truly breathable and waterproof, not water resistant, but actually waterproof. The hood, waist can be cinched, and the cuffs are tabbed (adjustable) as well. It allows breath ability so one does not get damp. The jacket is fully mesh lined inside a must have feature. I bought the light grape, eclipse blue color, I please with it. The color displayed is accurate with the college I received. February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Rain Jacket This hooded rain jacket is great! It is breathable and comfortable for Florida weather. This jacket is a fitted style and ordering one size larger makes it fit me perfectly. I highly recommend it! February 13, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Works. Could be better. Qualifiers: I've only had the jacket 2 weeks. It is being compared to another Columbia jacket bought 10 year ago which, of course, was perfect. The Good: I generally wear small or x-small but bought a medium hoping that I'd be able to fit a fleece under it and that the sleeves would accommodate my long arms. That worked. I've worn it in the rain--no leaks. The Room-for-improvement: Fabric is crunchy/loud. Prefer snaps on zip shield: velcro gets caught on everything. Doesn't have back vent. Zip doesn't open from the bottom. Hand pocket zips close up instead of down. No chest pocket. The mesh lining in the sleeves "sticks" to shirts so the lining gets pushed out of the sleeve a little when putting the jacket on. Ok on sale and for occasional use. I'd hesitate to recommend it otherwise. February 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall great jacket Overall, this jacket is great for the price. Keeps the wind and water out while keeping heat in. I love to layer underneath depending on how cold it is outside. February 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Rain Jacket!!! I received this coat as a birthday gift in preparation for college. It is a beautiful green (that complements my red hair). It is very waterproof and roomy. I am 5'5, 120ish lbs and I ordered up a size (normally small, got a medium). This was the perfect decision, as it is comfortable even with a sweatshirt underneath. I love this coat, and love the price even more!! February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by West Coast Rain The Women's Arcadia™ II Rain Jacket arrived just in time to wear in a heavy west coast rain storm. The fit was perfect, shed the rain and roomy enough for an extra sweater under the jacket. Loved the fact that it packs into it's own pocket. Great for travel. February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! I wanted an easy to pack, lightweight rain jacket for a vacation in 80 degree weather with plenty of rain. This has a mesh lining to keep it from getting clammy when I wear short sleeves. It has all the details I expect from Columbia. I rated it a little small because it has a slightly fitted shape, it is not boxy. Very becoming. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hood/underarms could be larger but great jacket I am 5'5" 110 lbs, small frame, long limbs, but I like roomy clothes. I got a medium, the underarm area is tight if wearing a sweatshirt, and the hood could be a little bigger to shield face and hair from rain. I wish it had the storm hood. I am picky about binding clothes, maybe its just me. I do love that its not hot and its lightweight. I think a bigger size would be too long in the sleeves, I would not order a tailored cut jacket (active) as this one was labeled modern classic. Wish relaxed was an option. January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Cute & lightweight I bought two of these for my daughters for Christmas - had to give it to them early as we had 3" of rain in 36 hours. It's lightweight & packable - perfect for them. Thank you!!!! December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight and warm Nice lightweight jacket, that keeps you warm and dry December 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product runs a bit small. This rain jacket runs a bit small. I had ordered a size small which is what I typically wear. It was a bit tight when I tried to layer it with a fleece underneath. Also, it was a bit shorter than I would've liked-coming just to my waist. I've decided to return it and get a longer rain jacket. One would still get soaked with this one from the waist down. December 4, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little small I bough it in the same size that I buy my coats expecting to have some extra space to wear over sweaters but it didn't work, it's too small for that. Other than that the jacket is great. December 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality with great price I lost the same jacket in red color in a tour trip and I was so happy to find the replacement here. I love the feminine foxglove color, and the fit is exactly the same as my prior one - true to size. The cut is fashionable too. I'm able to wear a short sleeve, a long sleeve, and a fleece jacket inside to keep me warm. Thank you for the great product and great price! And free shipping! What a good start of my holiday season! :-D November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Florida Weather I LOVE this jacket, and I LOVE that it was on sale! I am 5'5'', 126 pounds, and the small fits perfectly. It's great for Florida rainy days. I also plan on using it up in Maine and on our boat. Get it, you won't regret it. November 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Color Love the color and the jacket was perfect for the rainy 10 days spent in Alaska. October 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wish I bought 2 Perfect on rainy days and nights watching my children play soccer. I stayed completely dry! The color is great and I've received tons of compliments. Great quality October 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT! I'm 5'3 and 115lbs and this jacket fits perfect. It has enough space for a sweater. It has been good in light rains. I love the bright colour (foxglove) and the material isn't as thin and flimsy as my previous rain jackets. I love that it can be packed into one pocket which makes it easy for me to carry around in my bag for school. Overall recommend! September 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain jacket Loved the color. Much prettier in person than in the catalog. I'm 5'2" and 105 lbs. XS fits perfectly and I could wear a fleece under. September 8, 2015
