Women's Arcadia™ II Rain Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 82.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for and more This jacket is everything I was looking for in a raincoat and more. I got tired of getting soaked in the rain picking up my kids from school and everyday errands. Umbrellas don't help. This jacket does! It's so light wt and breathable. Love the zipper pockets for my keys, wallet and phone. It has velcro at the ends of the sleeves as well. I'm telling you it's the best! I did my research. It's really a life saver! I wanted the purple color but got the rose bc I needed a Large (fits great, I went 1 size up, I usually wear a medium) the color is beautiful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional and attractive but small under the arms My hall closet used to have several jackets I used when it was raining or to carry when traveling. I intended for this jacket to replace 2 of them. The jacket I purchased is a beautiful magenta ("bright plum") color. It's lightweight and form-fitting. Best of all, it doesn't feel hot despite being waterproof. Unfortunately, there are 2 characteristics of the jacket that I find disappointing in a higher end product: there are no interior pockets and the underarm space is extremely limited...meaning that the jacket can't be used as a shell with anything bulky underneath. And those with heavier arms will not be comfortable in their normal size...or even a size larger. I'm 5'7" and 135 lb, and the medium is a good fit save for around the upper arm, where the jacket is too tight. I'm not sure I'd buy it again, even at the sale price I paid.
Date published: 2017-01-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very waterproof! This is a great outer shell to keep dry. If you are layered up for warmth, this could be a little tight and you might want to size up. I'm 5'4, 120 lbs and I feel like it is just snug enough but if I put a thick sweater on under this it might be bulky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product buy better to buy it after Christmas! The product is great and fit as expected, my only concern is on how the price drop almost to the half after Christmas. If you can try to buy it in sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat I do not usually like rain coats but this is one that I will wear for a rainy day. It is not only stylish but it is also light weight. It keeps you warm and dry in the rain. I love the hood that you can use to keep your hair dry when its raining outside. This coat is light weight and not big and bulky like some rain coats I have had in the past. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-10-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Rain Jacket I loved the color and how it fits. An excellent purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! I love this jacket. The color is so much nicer in reality. Very bright purple! Very lightweight, really waterproof and very packable. I can just put it in my purse and go on with my day. All my other jackets are Columbia and this one didn't disappoint at all. Will buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! It hasn't rained since my rain jacket arrived, and it has been too hot to wear it outside. But the medium fits just right, a little roomy but that is what I like so if need be I can wear something heavier underneath when the fall weather sets in. I love the color "Miami."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-07-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
