Rated 4 out of 5 by Little It's very good but it runs a little small. September 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must have in wardrobe I love every part of this jacket. Kept me dry while commuting to work and class. The adjustable hood prevents it from blowing off in the wind which was key for me. It's a longer length and will cover your bum but is not so long that it is overwhelming. Fits amazingly. Note that it is fitted at the waist. I find the fit flattering but still roomy enough to layer underneath. It is also thin enough that I often layer this under a lighter, spring jacket. Zip up pockets prevents your phone/keys from getting wet. Truly no complaints. Staple in my wardrobe that I would gladly pay full price for. I am rather petite and it is often difficult to find jackets that fit all over. July 7, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Water resistant, not waterproof There are many things I like about this rain jacket-- the long length is practical, it's lightweight and portable, and the bright color (hibiscus) is great for visibility. I got a size up (I usually wear a small, bought a medium)in order to fit a sweater or jacket beneath it. Works great as a windbreaker for cold/windy weather. I searched through many options from many brands before choosing this rain jacket for my work. Unfortunately, I just got back from a camping trip in which I was able to "test" my intended use for the jacket-- mild rain, and walking through wet vegetation. I was wearing a light jacket and t-shirt beneath the raincoat, and both of them were wet after about an hour. The rain soaked through the raincoat, through the jacket beneath it, all the way to my tshirt. The raincoat failed to perform its intended function completely. April 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Jacket fits like a dress shirt This jacket is a very lightweight rain jacket which would lead you to believe you can wear a sweater or sweatshirt underneath it on a rainy day. I read some reviews and sized up one size and the jacket still fit me more like a dress shirt. The only thing that would fit underneath it would be a bra. I had to send it back and they won't even pay the return shipping even though it is clearly their fault. I'm normally not a complainer but this is ridiculous. I am now totally unimpressed with Columbia. I used to think of quality when I thought of them but not anymore. Now it's just cheap garbage like everything else. They have lost a customer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing raincoat I appreciate those who share reviews, good and bad. Hope this one is beneficial. Previous reviews stated this raincoat ran small, so I ordered a sized up to a Medium. I wear a small. Nevertheless, the medium was too small; its sizing compared to XS (returned it). Needing a coat roomy for layering, I ordered the XL, which fit nicely, not too big-a neat look. Upset about ordering the larger size, I took exact measurements. This XL is actually Medium sizing…so beware; this coat really runs slim - due to style or incorrect sizing (?). The sleeves are slim for layering but okay; they’re long and adjustable-Velcro or turned up (2 inch hem gives a neat appearance). Hood has great coverage. Contrary to reviews, the two-way zipper works fine (give a quick glance to align the tracks). Guaranteed rainproof, I tested its limits for cold/wind on a southern 8-degree, 20 mph windy day. Layering with a long-sleeved shirt, silk sweater, and fleece jacket, the coat did fairly well (not toasty warm but didn’t freeze either). NOW the cons! The coat (black) seemed to be a magnet for all dust, lint, airborne particles, none of which just brushed off. This is unacceptable for me, my job, and required travels. Also, there was a hole in the left pocket seam due to faulty sewing. Coat has crinkling sound and it wrinkles. I didn’t mind the used packing box, but it was barely taped together and parts of the garment hung out. Folks, returns are so costly and having to return this second coat due to sizing, poor quality and workmanship is frustrating. My first purchases with Columbia were so very disappointing that they’ve lost a customer. February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice looking style This rain jacket fits well and looks good. It is just the right length to keep you dry. The zipper from the bottom helps you to sit in the car and then zip up for walking. I totally recommend this jacket. Love having a hood also. The weight is good for packing in a suitcase. It takes up hardly any space and is real handy. Add a sweater underneath for warmth if needed. February 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice jacket I live in the rainy northwest and have several rain jackets for different purposes but I still needed a lightweight jacket that covers my rear end, has some feminine styling and is in-between casual and dressy. This fits the bill. I bought the red because I wanted something that would make me more visible while out walking on dark rainy nights. I almost always buy dark colors when it comes to jackets so I was a little uncertain about such a bright color but I've gotten compliments on it already. I have only two complaints: it has no zippers under the arms to allow for venting on warmer days and it could use an interior zipper pocket. Overall a nice jacket and I would recommend it. February 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mixed feelings - but overall good Love how this fits and looks. So far works ok in terms of shedding rain. Just two complaints: 1) The double zipper is very hard to engage - you have to really yank down on it in order to zip. 2) the cinch cords on the hood do not stay in place and are difficult to secure - so on a rainy windy day the hood keeps flying off February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stayed dry I'm 5' 5", a size 12, usually in between a M and a L, read the reviews and bought an XL. I wore it over a long-sleeved tee and light polar fleece jacket - wasn't much room to spare, especially in the arms and shoulders. The sleeves reach almost to the first knuckles on my fingers, so I can easily curl my fingers in out of the rain, or velcro the sleeves snugly about my wrist. I'd prefer a longer jacket, as it barely reaches mid-thigh, but I walked for two hours in light rain, and stayed reasonably dry. A little damp around the cuffs. January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fitted, classic looking jacket perfect for women:Awesome I love how this jacket is fitted to a woman's figure! This is why some reviews say it runs small. It fits perfectly yr size w 1 cotton layer under it. If u need warmth (have a fleece or sweater under it) or have a fuller figure, choose the next size larger. I'm 5'7",150lbs,sz M. The zipper is fine, but U need to make sure the 2 zippers are completely lowered & held on the one side, while inserting the bottom part of the other side of the zipper. Pull this bottom part completely down to the end of the 2 zippers. Then try to zip the coat. If the 2 ends of the zipper are uneven, it won't zip. This is true of most zippers. January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So happy with this purchase! I live in Oregon where it rains....I wanted a longer length rain jacket that was waterproof. I searched many stores in person and on-line and kept coming back to this jacket. I LOVE it! I bought the hibiscus color and have had many compliments. I am about 5 ft 3 in and weigh 150 lbs. I bought the XL so that I could wear a fleece vest under it when more warmth needed. This works great. The sleeves are long.....but I can either turn them up or tighten up velcro at the wrists! Walked in a rainstorm last week and stayed perfectly dry. I also like how the hood can adjust with velcro in the back. December 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by NW RAIN GEAR I live in Oregon, so rain gear is very important if you want to be able to function outdoors. I just needed a shell so i could use it all year warm or cold. The reviews and sizing guide say it runs small. I am 5'7" 150 lbs, normally i order a Medium so i sized up to a large. When I received the coat and put it on it seemed way to big. I put it on with a cardigan on underneath and it still had a lot of room. It was pouring rain out so I decided just to stick with it and wear it out for a walk. The hood had amazing coverage and room. No water got through at all, and i ended up being very warm after 30 minutes of walking. I decided just to keep it and I am happy I did. I wore it again with my Suit underneath and it fit with a just enough room to spare. I am happy I sized up and cant wait for the weather to get colder to bundle underneath! December 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Rain Jacket for the Pacific NW! Love this rain jacket! I live in Portland and we get pleenty of rain, so a good rain jacket is a must! This one works great, it is long (I am 5'7" and it hits well below the hips) and it is also thin so you could wear it in rainy weather no matter the temperature. There is still plenty of room to wear a thicker sweater underneath it as well. Overall a great jacket! November 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT! I live in Chicago and after last years terrible fall/ winter experience I quickly realized it was about function and not style, also that i had no coats with hoods. I bought this as my new fall coat and could not be happier! unfortunately it has been cold and rainy enough for me to break this out already and Ive gotten tons of compliments! im 5'8 and normally wear a medium/ small (i like my stuff more fitted) but after reviews reluctantly ordered the large, which im so glad i did! It fits just perfect, plenty of room for a layer underneath when it gets cooler and it is fitted and not boxy at all. Sleeves are freakishly long but i just rolled them up once and it looks like theyre supposed to be that way. I stay dry and warm and really love this coat. I wear this downtown for work everyday and it looks great with jeans as well as dresses or dress pants! September 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Jacket but... 95% of the reviews on this site and other sites stated that the jacket runs small and recommended ordering a size larger. I did order a larger size but it was too big so I returned it. I am disappointed that Columbia does not cover the cost of shipping for exchanging an item. The closest store is over 2 hours away so I cannot return it to a store. March 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Johummingbird nice raincoat, just what i was looking for, reviews warned of coat size running small so i ordered large, slightly large but fine. March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by NR125 It's been a little cold to wear this much, but it seems perfect for spring mist or rain. I'm out walking or hiking every day, so look forward to getting a lot of wear out of this coat. It's fitted and more stylish than other raincoats I've had. I like the bright red-orange because it makes me feel visible when walking along the side of neighborhood roads. The zip pockets, plus inside pocket are well positioned and are just big enough for a few dog treats or phone. The zipper and snaps are well constructed and the hood adjustable. All in all, a really nice coat that looks like it will wear well. February 25, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Defective Zippers! I had an immensely disappointing experience with this jacket! Although I loved the jacket itself, it came with a defective zipper. I could barely get it zipped up at all; it took many tries & much struggling, The 3rd time I wore it, the zipper stuck at the bottom & I could not unzip it. I ordered a replacement jacket of the same style, size & color, & it had the exact same zipper defect! I have to wonder about quality control at this point. I'm now waiting for a "Dusk2Dawn" jacket, hoping that there are no zipper issues. February 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by quality of garment I am absolutely in love with columbia cloths..Iam addicted..I wish I can get passes to their employee store often.. January 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy Glad I went a size up, as people recommended. Like the tailored fit and the bigger hoodie that stays up when walking... January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great basic rain jacket I live in Oregon, so it's essential to have a reliable rain jacket. This is my second from Columbia, and I love it. It's tailored well, so it isn't boxy and has a feminine feel. The hood is generous. It's also a bit long in the back, which is really what I was looking for. January 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fit for a woman's body! I have not had a chance to wear this jacket to test the elements yet, however, once I received the jacket, I of course, tried it on, and the fit was small (I went up a size) but it was cut so nice for a woman's body! It wasn't just boxy as so many jackets like this tend to be. It was also light weight, and felt like it would still breathe while keeping you dry! The hood is very large - so I feel I will be very protected from the rain! December 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Stylish rain coat I should have listened to the reviews about the coat running small. I ordered my usual size medium from another on-line company and it was way too tight so I returned it and ordered a large from Columbia because that company did not have a large in stock. I love the coat and am glad I went through the hassel of returning it. You may want to mention that it does not run true to size. November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rain jacket! This is a very good light jacket, it is breathable but blocks the wind nicely. I wear it over a sweater usually when it is cold out, and I don't get overheated. November 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Rain Jacket Took heed of other reviews for the sizing of this rain jacket and ordered up a size. The cut is very stylish, and because of that, it is a rather tight-fitting jacket. I am 5'5", weigh 135, small boned. Normally a Medium jacket is quite loose on me so I was confident a Large would fit like I prefer coats to fit -- a bit loose. If I were to only wear this for summer rains, fit would be fine, but most of our midwest rains are in the spring and fall so fleece is a must for me. With layers under this coat, the arms were pretty tight. The rest of the jacket was snug, however, it was acceptable. Debated with myself because I really, really, like the jacket, however, ended up returning it because of the tightness when layering under the coat. October 21, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Small on the Fit Otherwise it seems to be a great raincoat. However, it is so small, I won't be able to use it in anything but warm, summer, rainy weather. There will be no way I will be able to layer under this coat to insulate myself. Kind of disappointing since I was really looking forward to having a great raincoat for fall/winter. Besides my own personal issues with the fit, it seems like a really nice raincoat. Too bad I won't be able to actually test it out until next spring/summer. I will still recommend this coat, but be sure to go up maybe even two sizes, to allow for insulating layers underneath. October 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lightweight Jacket! I bought this jacket for an autumn trip to the UK and couldn't have been happier. It kept me dry and helped to cut down on the wind, as well. I normally wear XS or S in clothing but the S bunched a little in the back so I went with the M to have room underneath for layers. I couldn't be happier with this jacket! October 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight is what I was looking for! This is a nice lightweight jacket that repels the rain and wind pretty well. The style and fit allows for layering which is perfect for this time of year. The only complaint I have is the zipper is sticky and difficult. I'm hoping it loosens up... October 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Jacket This longer length jacket is perfect for what I need it for, a little longer, rain proof and complimentary to the female figure. September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by best rain jacket ever holy moly this is exactly what I've been looking for! It's supremely waterproof, well fitted, light, comfortable & flattering. The length is perfect for helping to protect the lower half in downpours... the slight A-cut of the jacket is flattering at the waist and also directs water runoff out and away from you. The hood is also well fitted, which is great because many rain jackets have hoods are too large and floppy. It stays put. It also has a look that could be deciphered as hip instead of sporty, if you're looking for a great functional background piece that doesn't scream "I'm sporty yo!". I'm 5'6" 140 lbs and the medium fits perfectly with enough wiggle room to be active or ride a bike in. Great jacket! Make it in more colors please! September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase Great weight, great rain proofing, love that it has form. VERY glad I'd read reviews about its sizing because it does run very small. Don't feel bad about ordering a large or extra large even if you've never done that in your life. September 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rain jacket Am so pleased with this jacket. Fits great and I like the longer length. August 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain Jacket Love that it is very stylish! Bought it in the red color. It will stand out! July 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I've been looking for. I had been looking all over for a light weight rain jacket that was functional, would hold up against the rain very well and was comfortable & good looking. I walk to and from most of where I need to go in the city so these things were important to me. So far I love this rain jacket! I took note of the many reviews that advised to order a size up from your usual size and the jacket fits great! There's a little extra room to wear a fleece layer underneath in the cooler weather. July 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Raincoat! I love this raincoat, it covers more than a jacket and the fit is flattering. It also breathes, not like those plastic jackets. Because it's a tailored fit it's flattering but it does run small. I got a size larger than usual and it fits great. July 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and cute rain jacket The jacket is light, including the hood which I like. The material is nice. I like it. July 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great light-weight waterproof/breathable jacket. I'd been looking all over for an affordable light-weight waterproof and breathable jacket. I found it in this Columbia jacket. I bought this to wear as a shell over a fleece jacket when the weather's cool or just alone when it's warmer. I love that it is a bit longer than many other similar jackets and that it has a double-zipper up the front and pockets with zippers. This jacket is so popular that I had to order it directly from Columbia -- it was sold out in the retail stores near me. June 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by really cute this coat is really cute. modern fit. not a straight boxy coat. i am 5'8, about 140 and ordered a size large. fit perfect. this is a true rain coat, not really a warm coat but very cute and functional for rainy days or evening that are a bit chilly where you just want something to cover you. June 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by OMG!!! I have been searching for a water-repellant windbreak but I am short and the boxy style of most windbreakers just look horrible on me. Shopping at other companies, I have bought and returned many raincoats over the year; but this Columbia raincoat is as close to perfect as you can get. Its like they got in my mind and designed exactly what I have looking for. It keeps the wind and rain off plus is very stylish. The cinching at the back waist gives it just enough shape to make it look almost dressy. Loved the color (I got the red) and what girl doesn't need a red raincoat. This was my best purchase and would strongly recommend it to others. June 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by rain jacket I knew it fits small, so I ordered a large one and I have no problem with the size. It´s great and I love the color. May 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect functional raincoat This coat does exactly what it is intended to do--keeps me dry in the rain. The water wicks right off. Plus the hood is great--it stays up and covers your face enough to keep that dry as well. It does run very small (I am usually a solid medium in everything I wear, but the large fits me perfectly), but it fits quite nicely. I love the longer length, and the cut is flattering as well. May 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely raincoat I'm a size Small, but I bought a Medium because reviews said it ran small, but I found the medium to be too large. For a fitted, feminine look I would have gotten the small, but I'll keep the medium so I can fit thicker clothing underneath it. But for that reason I think this coat is true to size! Length is great for more rain protection, and hood is a good size. The red pattern and color is just like the picture. Its very light and with no plasticy feel for a raincoat. April 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I bought 1 in Grill and liked it so much we got 1 for my mother-in-law for her birthday! I love the length and the fit. It's a raincoat but I wear it for more than just rainy days. I liked it so much we got 1 for my Dads wife and she loves it too. But we did have to exchange hers for a larger size. I do think it runs alittle small. It's comfortable and breathes so it doesn't leave you feeling wilted when the sun comes out. April 13, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Runs small I just received this coat and tried it on and unfortunately it is too small. I can't get it zipped so I'm sending it back for a larger size. Love the color and jacket. April 9, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by XL is more like a L Unfortunately, I had to return this coat. It was too small in the chest area. It even looked small on the hanger, but when I put it on, it pulled in the chest area and just seems too tight all over. Would love to have kept this coat because it was just what I was looking for. April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice jacket The length of this jacket is great. Just a bit below the hips. Nice shaping to give it a more feminine appearance. It does run a bit small. April 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great jacket This is a great jacket for wet weather, especially fall and spring! It fits well and I love the red color which isn't too flashy but still fun to wear! April 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice jacket, but runs too small for me I love the style of this jacket and its longer length. I also like the fact that it has snaps on the storm flap instead of velcro. However, even with a size up from my normal size it is still too small. I can barely get it to zip, much less layer so it will need to be returned. April 2, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not at all waterproof All the tags and labels called this jacket waterproof. It was water proof for maybe the first 5 mins of light rain, then it leaked all the way through, and I was soaked for the rest of the day. Unfortunately I really didn't test it in the rain until 2 months after I bought it, so I couldn't return it. I regret buying this jacket and would return if I could. Its was such a bummer because the fit is so nice. September 16, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not waterproof I bought this jacket this spring to wear during the cooler summer days. I wear this jacket all the time and it is very comfy and breathable. However this jacket is not waterproof. Even in light rain water seeps through at the shoulders and leaves you soaked as if you weren't even wearing a jacket. I am very disappointed as I love the fit of this jacket but it is dry impractical because it does not keep me dry whatsoever. September 12, 2015
