Women’s Arcadia Rain™ Jacket – Extended Sizes 4.2 5 118 118
Arcadia Rain Jacket I love this jacket so much that I just purchased a second one. Perfect for walking the dog on a windy or misty day and plenty of roomy pockets. December 18, 2013
Nice Jacket I bought this jacket for my wife. It fits perfectly and the quality is excellent. She loves the color. December 15, 2013
I love Columbia Sportswear I have had a rain jacket for years and hate to give up the one I have but it is slowly falling apart. Now I have a great new waterproof rain jacket because you know I live in the state of liquid sun shine. However right now I'm wearing my Columbia winter coat as the season is unreasonably cold right now. December 4, 2013
Women' Arcadia Rain Jacket First I bought a 2x because I read a review describing this jacket as running small to size. It was too big around the core and felt uncomfortable. I returned for a 1x and this jacket had very slim arms , but the rest of the jacket felt good. I need to return because the sleeves limit comfortable movement. November 26, 2013
Rain Jacket I bought this jacket a size bigger because as it gets colder I want to wear more layers underneath. The jacket fits fine but heavy items underneath will not work. I am disappointed, November 6, 2013
Good but small Just the coat for our Seattle winters--wet but not that cold. I bought the quill color, and if you like a deep, gorgeous purple, this will be just the one for you.This coat has everything you'd expect from a Columbia--adjustable at the cuffs and neck, a drawstring at the bottom, hood with a bill, etc. The hard rains haven't hit yet, but I expect it to "weather" the season just fine.In regards to size. First, let me say kudos to Columbia for beginning to add extended sizes to their lines. It's great that folks are understanding that just because you're fat it doesn't mean you're not active!In agreement with other reviewers, let me say this size runs very small. I usually wear 1X-2X in just about anything, and sometimes buy an XL. In this case, the 3X is just right for me. Not baggy, but enough room for the fabric to breathe, and enough to fit a thick fleece or sweater underneath. Sorry gals, their size guide says 3X is equivalent to 24W-26W, but I'd say if you usually wear over about a 20W (maybe 22W?), you'll need to find a waterproof breathable somewhere else.The one concern I have about this coat is the velcro that's used for closure over the zipper. I like that it basically closes itself as you zip up, but on a previous coat I had with velcro covering the zipper, it ended up snagging on any kind of fuzzy sweater. It presents no problem with smooth fabrics like sweatshirts, t-shirts, wicking shirts, or fleece. I know the velcro itself will slightly snag on fuzzier sweater fabric--I tried it. What I'm not sure about yet is whether the actual placement will tend to brush over the sweater surface as you put it on. I'd like to hear whether other people have had issues with that. I read all the reviews and no mention, so I'm hopeful.The breathability is great. Overall, I'd recommend the coat for wet blustery days. November 2, 2013
Long arms Although I absolutely loved the color & material of the Arcadia Rain Jacket, the fit was not right. The shoulder width & sleeve length were too large yet the rest of the jacket fit fine so getting a smaller size was not going to work. I did return the jacket. October 30, 2013
Love it! This will be my "go to" jacket in misty Portland, where you never know if the sun will come out or if it will actually rain. Good color, fits well, comfortable. October 15, 2013
This producr keep you very DRY This product is great. Works well as a light jacket or over a sweatshirt or sweater. Keeps you dry! October 10, 2013
finally! Looked all over for a light weight jacket for everyday drippy Oregon weather. Should have looked at Columbia Sportswear first. October 9, 2013
Nice jacket The jacket was really nice but it was shorter than I like and it was also too big so I had to return it. October 2, 2013
Love the jacket, but.... Love the jacket, but it doesn't breath well enough for me and I do not like the plastic-y feel of the fabric on my arms. If this had a mesh lining and pit zippers, it might feel better on. September 23, 2013
Women’s Arcadia Rain™ Jacket light weight, rain jacket. Packs well, fun colors. very suitable for a rainy day. not a heavy rain event September 16, 2013
nice jacket I really like it although I'd prefer to have a hood that can be detached. August 25, 2013
Rain Jacket Traveling through Europe with this jacket was easy, light and could easily fit in any carry on bag. However we were caught in a Torrential Rain in the Swiss Alps and while I did not get wet, I did not feel that way. I felt cold and damp. Not at all what I expected from this outer way. May be ok for everyday use from the car to indoors but certainly not a travel jacket.You must buy a size or two larger than normal as this does run small. August 15, 2013
Other than sizing, this jacket rocks! Since many of the other reviews mentioned going up two sizes, I ordered the 3x and found it to be a little too big. Thankfully, the velcro at the end of the sleeves and the pull ties at the waist help with this problem and I'd rather have the extra room for sweaters than have it fit too snugly. The adjustable strap for the hood is a lifesaver since the main reason for buying a new rain jacket was for a repeat trip to Scotland. The last time I was there the rain jacket I took did not have an adjustable hood and I spent a LOT of time looking at the ground because the hood was in my face. So, good jacket, great color, excellent quality. My only advice is to size up one size instead of two if you want a closer fit. August 2, 2013
Feature missing I was looking for a waterproof jacket that can be folded into a puch like my old Pacific Trail jacket does. July 29, 2013
Good quality, feminine rain jacket I listened to other reviewers (which I'm glad I did) as this jacket runs a little small. It is light weight, breathable and I love (how the navy/white one I bought) has the white panels on the side which provide a nice slimming effect. I am tired of being out in the weather and looking like man due to large, square rain jackets. I'm excited by this one as I now feel like it gives me a bit of shape (while leaving room for layers underneath) and I look like the woman I am! July 25, 2013
Very Comfortable After a lot of research I finally decided on this rain jacket, among others, and I must say the jacket is really nice. It is not as thick as it looks in the picture, so it is a thin rain coat, but it feels great and is very light.It runs small. I am a heavy woman, normally an XL. I had to order a 2X just to have a good fit, with a little room to wear regular clothes underneath. So if you are a small usually, you may want to get a large etc.I chose the Navy and White color pattern, which I love. Surprisingly turns heads and it looks exactly like the picture. Love this jacket! July 4, 2013
Yet to Try Haven't used it yet. Cruising to Alaska. Counting on continued excellence we've experienced with previous Columbia purchases. May 19, 2013
Not the same as in store I saw this raincoat in a store and they didn't have my size. Note that it runs small. The salesperson wrote down the product information so I could order online, which I did. I was very surprised when the coat arrived and had a white trim on the inside of the zipper. The same coat in the store did not have this and I never would have ordered the coat with this trim. I took it back to the store and they compared the coats and they have the exact same style number although they are not exactly the same. The online description needs to include this or show a picture of it. Columbia did resolve this issue to my satisfaction with no problem. May 17, 2013
Traveling both Europe and Alaska I needed a lighter weight jacket for European rains, and then an all weather jacket for Alaska that I could layer with for extreme temps. I ordered a 1x - my normal size - and the jacket was too small in the shoulder/arms area and in the abdomen/chest. The length of the sleeves and the overall jacket were also short.I returned and started reading reviews on this jacket which all seem to indicate that the jacket runs small. Based on that information, I decided to take a leap of faith and ordered way up to a 3x!Although the 3x is a tad big around the hips, the length is perfect. The sleeve length is also a tad big, but has good coverage and will work while wearing something bulky underneath.I was able to minimize the width around my hips by cinching with the cord. The shoulder/ arm area is still a little narrow, but I knew that if I ordered a 2x that I would never be able to comfortably wear a sweater or sweatshirt underneath the jacket .I love the way the hood fits, and the coverage above the forehead/eyes. I am happy with my choice. April 27, 2013
Pretty Good This is a great rain jacket. The size and length is great, hits right at the hips giving a great shape. I've worn this jacket in heavy wind and downpours and I've stayed dry and relatively warm. The one problem with this jacket is that it doesn't have any vents. On warmer days it's not breathable which makes me sweat (I hike for a living), which is sometimes uncomfortable. But overall it does what it's suppose to do. April 14, 2013
Awesome Jacket I just love this jacket. It keeps me completely dry and warm in the pouring rain. I love the style and fit too, I live in both Seattle, WA and Minnesota so something that works in all waether is great. Just put a sweatshirt or shell underneath and you are ready for the MN cold. Just take it out and you still stay warm and dry even in Seattle's heavy rain. Thanks for making a waterproof jacket in an extended size that looks and preforms great. Next test is Europe for three months - can't wait. April 7, 2013
Just what I wanted I lost my old Columbia jacket and was delighted to be able to replace it. Love the length, the velcros, and the light weight (price was nice, too). I bought a size larger than usual, after reading it ran small, and wish I had not--I found it true to size. March 31, 2013
it's a rain coat Like the color. I got the black and white. I haven't had a chance to see how it works in the rain.I got the 3x size. Wanted it to be big enough to fit another jacket or layers of clothes underneath. The top part of the jacket fits fine but the bottom of the jacket is tight against my body. To the point I may not pull the jacket down all the way while wearing. It makes it hard to zip up the jacket.Columbia has to realize that women have hips of varying sizes and need more fabric to accomadate that. I think adding an elastic trim around the bottom of the jacket would be a wonderful addition along with the extra fabric added. That way the coat will hug the body no matter what.Also I would have loved the jacket to be long enough to cover my entire backside. Right now it covers maybe half. March 26, 2013
Don't even think of getting a liner This is the only Rain Jacket I could find in my size that was not a "poncho". It is too tight of a fit around the waist, and I even ordered one size up. It will have to be a summer rain jacket, which is disappointing, since I won't be able to wear it with a liner. I need a waterproof jacket at times, I seem to only find water-resistant ones. February 13, 2013
nice jacket I thought this jacket was to thin. I was looking for something a little heavier. I returned it. February 2, 2013
Zing is Dayglo Orange Received 3X Zing Jacket today in an effort to replace a 14 year old OmniTech Jacket I love in XL that doesn't button around the waist. Best part was waist. Fit great. Sleeves are too small around. Color looks like a construction worker. Fabric is way more like plastic than my original. Going back. Sad. January 25, 2013
excellent product I am very happy with my new rain jacket. I previously had one from Columbia and it lasted me about 10 years. Happy to see the new one met my expectations. Only one small critique -- the tabs on the sleeves stick up when you have it closed all the way. I think you should just clip those off (about half the triangle) and sleeves a little long. Other than that -- GREAT!! January 14, 2013
Jacket Dosen't look the way its shown online December 19, 2012
Does not breathe well Columbia has great stuff but this product does not breathe well as advertised. When walking in the cool weather, you still sweat a lot--my Costco jacket that cost 1/3 of this product works much better. When contacting customer service service, they explained you should open the flaps or unzip the jacket for better breathing--this product was purchased so someone wouldn't have to do this. I would avoid this product if you plan on getting warm while you are using it--you will sweat underneath a lot. December 14, 2012
Arcadia Rain Jacket Here in Portland, OR I was tired of not having a good rain jacket. I got this jacket and I'm really happy with it. It fits well and is very water proof. If I was designing it I would add some flannel to the inside of the pockets so that they are soft and warm. and maybe add another inside pocket. Oh, and a key clip to one of the outer pockets too. But overall, a great jacket. December 14, 2012
It's... OK. What can I say, it's a rain jacket. The material is kinda stiff, and very light weight; it feels like it wouldn't stand up to a brush by a black berry bush, but maybe that's an illusion and it's sturdier than it appears, don't know.My biggest issue is probably with the fit. The 2X size I got is snug in the hips while being very billowy throughout the rest. I also had an issue with the hood, cinching it up didn't seem to help it stay on in the wind and rain, it only served to make it more uncomfortable for me. I've tried to wear this three times and it's just too loud (I don't mean color I mean the swish, swish when I move) and not very comfortable. I might wear it again if we have a deluge but this will probably hang in my closet even through most of the rainy days. (Instead I'll just wear my new Columbia Benton Springs fleece jacket which doesn't have a hood but when paired with a beanie has provided good weather protection so far)A note on the sizing:It bears repeating that while this is a 'womens' jacket it doesn't seem that a womans curves were taken into consideration. I practically swim in the main body of the jacket while at the same time having trouble getting the zipper started at my hips. (and my hips are proportional, not overly wide) Maybe having an adjustable waist hem would have been good. December 2, 2012
Great rain jacket! Love the waterproof capability! Water beads up and you can brush it off easily and it dries fast. November 22, 2012
Keeps me dry in Oregon rain and warm 50 degrees. Keeps me dry, love the hood and room to put fleece underneath. Perfect for Oregon weather. Zipper is a little sensitive, keeps wanting to zip over flap material in. Just take your time and it gets easier. Rating is due to zipper. Should be more than good. November 19, 2012
Runs small but worth it I ordered the Arcadia knowing that it would run a little small which it does (mainly in the waist area), but its still comfortable and not to tight even with a light sweater underneath. The material feels quality not cheap at all. It is surprisingly warm and definitely keeps the rain out which is why i bought it. November 17, 2012
Perfect Seattle Jacket! I now live in Seattle and after a year of convincing myself I didn't need a rain jacket I finally broke down and bought one. Having a large chest makes jacket buying a bit difficult which is only reason this jacket fits a big snug for me so I would recommend ladies with larger chest to size up. Also, this jacket is light so layering it is a must. It's comfortable, durable and keeps me dry in the Seattle rain. Love it! November 3, 2012
This is a really nice rain jacjet. I love this jacket. It looks nice and really does its job. I wore it yesterday in the Seattle rain and stayed nice and dry. I love the lining. You do not sweat like other rain coats and that is very, very good!The only problem I have is this...I ordered the coat in blue and they sent red! I was dissappointed as I am a Seahawk fan and wanted this jacket for the games. I sent an email about this and they said the blue was no longer avaiable and have since changed it on the web site. I am keeping it because it is such a nice jacket, just wish they had the blue I ordered. October 28, 2012
More jacket than I realized When I bought this jacket, I didn't realize that I was getting more than just a nice windbreaker. We will be traveling to Europe during Thanksgiving, and it will probably be pretty cool and rainy. I cannot believe I lucked out and got a great jacket to take with me! I've worn it several times, and it does its job; I stay dry and warm. I am very pleased and fully recommend this product. October 11, 2012
It gets the job done I have been waiting in the Portland area, where it never rains in the summer, to try this jacket I bought in July. Finally I decided the only way would be to go to Alaska. In Ketchikan, where it rains like 250 days a year, I finally got my chance. It rained hard enough to put my digital camera on the fritz. But nary a drop reached through this rain jacket. Exactly as I expected from this vendor. (BTW, about 18 hrs immersion in a bag of uncooked rice fixed the camera.) September 27, 2012
Order at least one size up! I normally wear an L /XL, but the first Arcadia jacket I ordered was an XL and it was too tight to zip up. It was pictured as a pretty soft 2-tone green on-line, but the actual color was somewhat "gawdier". I reordered and opted for a 2X so that I could get it in blue, since that color was out of stock in a 1X. The 2X ended up being not too large considering that I want some extra room underneath for layering. So, my advice would be to order at least one size larger than you normally wear. It is still warm and dry in coastal NC where I live, so I have not had the opportunity to test out the warmth or water-repellancy of the fabric, but if it functions as described, it should be the perfect 3-season jacket for this climate. September 22, 2012
Too short, but overall a good jacket. The previous reviews were correct in saying that the length of this jacket runs on the shorter side. I was slightly disappointed when I tried this on, but the quality and the color made up for what the length was lacking. I chose the pink/orange and love it!The other thing I noticed was the drawstrings on the bottom of the jacket do not stay when they are pulled tight. Would have been nice to have some sort of plug that keeps the strings synched. September 21, 2012
Ready for fall Great fit and feel of the jacket. Love the colors & lightweight, comfortable fit September 19, 2012
Awesome Buy I regularly wear 14/16, I bought a 1x and it fit perfect! Just enough room so that i can be comfortable and not so small that i cant put a hoodie under it. Jacket it great with keeping me dry in the rain (which is its purpose). July 27, 2012
Alaska adventure jacket Perfect jacket for our summer trip to Alaska - as rain jacket, wind breaker, layering jacket. Hood & zipping pockets a plus. Wish it had a pocket or two inside. Online price was reasonable compared to in store price, even when I added expedited shipping. So glad I found this jacket! July 20, 2012
good jacket All in all a good jacket. Does what it's for. Not long enough for my likeing. Other than that I like it. June 30, 2012
A true rain jacket, finally! It's great to finally find a true rain jacket that repels the really wet instead of fashion statement 'shower proof' jacket, and this one looks good too. I've only had the jacket a few days, but tried it out in a thunder storm downpour, staying completely dry as the water beaded and rolled off the jacket. I did have a bit of an issue with the hood blowing off in the wind, but if I did the jacket up to the neckline better this will likely not be such a problem. My only complaint is the length of the sleeves, I don't need to cover my hands and using the valcro cuffs makes the sleeves bunch up. June 18, 2012
Happily surprised I had been looking for a rain jacket in the stores for a long time, never finding one. All I wanted is something like a windbreaker. Where I live, it will rain, yet still be in the 80's F so something with fleece was not going to cut it. It finally occurred to me to look online and I found this jacket. It had all the features that I wanted AND it came in 3x. My first choice was the Women's Arcadia Rain Jacket in Elderberry/Rouge. Unfortunately, that color didn't come in a 3x. I settled on the Clematis Blue/Compass Blue. I fully expected to need to send it back, since a lot of the reviews said it ran small. Much to my surprise, it fit perfectly! Only slightly snug with enough room for a thick sweater underneath. The colors looked much nicer than in the online photo and the stitching is very well done. This jacket will last longer than I will, I believe! It even has a little velcro strap in the back of the hood to keep it from flapping down over your face! I highly recommend this product. Make sure you use the size chart for the jacket if you are worried about fit. June 5, 2012
