Women's Arcadia™ Casual Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for Seattle This jacket will be perfect for rainy Seattle. Hopefully I won't have to wear it much, but if I do it's perfectly stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket Just moved to NYC and needed something that would keep me dry when it rains. This is perfect. It is a little big on me but I prefer it to be on the large size so I can layer when it gets colder. I love the color and the huge pockets. It fits easily in my backpack without taking up too much space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and functional This rain coat is nice, casual, lightweight protection against summer down pours. I would not call it breathable but I have been wearing on 85+ degree days when really nothing is breathable. Fit-I really like the dip in the back that cover the booty. I also like that the hood sticks out far enough to keep my glasses from getting wet. My only complaints were, for me, the arms were a little snug and long. I did like the drawstring waist which gives a more fitted appearance than a typical boxy shell though. Color-The only way I can describe the yellow color is that it matches the yellow lines painted in the road.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied This jacket can easily be layered, because it runs a little big. I have no complaints most of the time coats say a certain size Then you can’t zip the mess up, without busting something else. I’m glad Columbia isn’t stingy with the room in their coats/jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I got my jacket for my travels so I wouldn't have to use an umbrella and it works wonders.... The hood comes down far enough I don't have to worry about my glasses getting wet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I am 6 ft tall with a small waist and curvy hips. The drawstring waist helps immensely to keep me from looking bigger than I really am. It is also not too huge in the top area. If you are a pear, this is a good choice. I do wish this was made with the canvas fabric of another style that Columbia makes because it is a little noisy, but am happy with this. I haven't been in a big downpour with it yet, so I can't tell you how dry it keeps me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don''t like sleeves I like the jacket but the sleeves are too long for me and there is no velcro to adjust them. Therefore I ordered another style that has velcro cuffs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Northeast's cool Spring weather. This is the perfect jacket for the Northeast's cool and rainy spring weather. You can wear it out in the mornings and fold it up in your bag in the warm afternoons. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket! It's a great raincoat and I think it's the perfect length, as I wanted something to go over my hips. I ordered the same size as my Benton Springs II (which fits perfectly) and I noticed that this jacket is more snug in the shoulders than that jacket. But considering I won't be wearing bulky clothing under it, it's not so snug that I felt like I had to exchange it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love I was a little iffy when buying this because of all the mixed reviews. Once I got it, I was in love. It’s a beautiful color and a very flattering style. Keeps me dry without making me sweat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and perfect weight! I am very happy with this jacket. I had purchased a previous Columbia rain jacket and returned it for this one. This is the perfect weight jacket to use year round. Layering when needed. The inside is a comfortable material. Previous juacoet had a stiff mesh that was not comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best, but it'll do This is not one of my better Columbia-brand purchases. This jacket is fine, and it will do, but it was a lot of money for a shell. It also runs small through the hips and belly; most of my other Columbia gear is a size smaller, and this is still snugger than I'd like. As other reviewers mentioned, it is quite loud when in motion, though that is a lesser concern. Overall, it's fine, it'll do, I'm keeping it, I need it, but I don't love it. Ah well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best raincoatvever I love this raincoat so much I have it in every color. I’ve colloected 9 this far!! Highly recommended. I’m tall the sleeves are perfect. The lining is just right and it folds up to pack easily.
Date published: 2018-03-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight but Good Quality I am a size 2-3X. This jacket in a 2X is a bit tight but the 3X may be too big. Overall, it's a good quality jacket and would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Jacket I bought this jacket because I find other styles are normally unflattering to a curvy body. This coat hugs me in the right places. I liked that it ties in at the waist. The colour is great too. I have received compliments already. So far it has also kept me super dry in a heavy rainstorm. I look forward to putting it to use on my trip to BC. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my Arcadia Jacket I have been looking for two years to replace a beloved Columbia rain jacket that I had for many years. Some Columbia styles in the plus size are tight in the upper arm but not Arcadia it's the jacket I've been looking for. Waterproof, great color on a gloomy day. Drawstring at waist can be loose or tight depending on your needs. The only thing I would add is a drawstring on the bottom hem of the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Love this coat. Had a really old one that was my favorite from Columbia and got paint on it and I knew I wanted another Columbia jacket. Am happy with my choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat, just wish I'd ordered a size smaller This is a great rain jacket. I'm very happy with it. The only thing is that I followed the sizing guide and got what I thought would be a perfect size for my hips, but it's too large. A size smaller would have been better. I'm too busy and lazy to send it back and it works well enough, but definitely a size too large. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Spring Jacket I ordered this for a spring water-proof jacket. While the jacket is beautiful, it is just a shell. A little to pricy for a shell. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs large, However its keeps you dry. Liked this rain coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, dry and great length This jacket is awesome. It is roomy enough for layers and long enough to keep your bum and upper things dry in the rainy Pacific Northwest. It is also fully lined and breathable so you don't end up more wet on the inside than the outside when hiking. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Soaked from day one I bought this jacket Sunday March 12, 2017 in Portland, Oregon. The next day it rained. I walked my daughter to the bus stop and ran a couple of errands. A nice couple told me my coat seemed to have sprung a leak. I was soaked on my head, shoulders and as a large busted woman wearing a t-shirt this is not the coat for a light rainy day. I was cold, damp and severely irritated by the poor performance of this coat. I purchased it for $100 at Nordstrom's and am purchasing a $13 waterproofing spray from Amazon on the 2nd day of ownership because this coat isn't even lightly water resistant. It is a great looking coat and fits great if I'm wearing it on a sunny day and stay away from sprinklers, passing clouds and humidity in general. This is the worst Columbia coat I have ever purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wrong description The uses for this jacket list winter and trail. Please don't be fooled, this is a spring jacket! It is a nylon type jacket with a mesh liner. The jacket is very cute and fits well but I will be returning because it's not a winter coat.
