Women's Arcadia™ Casual Jacket is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aracadia Jacket I love this jacket...both for the comfort and practicality. It fits true to size, is very well constructed and the color is very flattering. I tried it on for my husband's opinion and he felt it was an excellant choice. Can't ask for better than that!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i loved it but... i really love it but the only thing is that the arms are a little baggy and it doesn’t fit very well around the butt & waist area. but the jacket itself is super cute and comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really weird fit: huge wrists, too small around the hips. Love the yellow color and thought this was really cute when I saw it (a bit more fashionable than a lot of the Columbia stuff). Was very disappointed when it arrived. I am a perfect example of an average-sized American woman. I'm almost 5'4" talk and wear a size 12-14. And yet, 90% of Columbia clothing doesn't fit me. Why? Excellent question. If the majority of people are a certain size, I don't know why you would design clothing for women who are 2-3 standard deviations above the norm. Anyway, I knew not to get my hopes up about this fitting. I ordered the large and it was too small around the hips. The elastic wrists, which I expected to alleviate the problem of way too long arms, we're so huge that the sleeves hung down past my hands. Seriously? Do you know how big a woman has to get before her wrists get super thick? Linebacker sized. I don't think they use fit models at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket If you’re looking for a jacket to wear in the rain, this is a great choice. I was disappointed that the fabric looks like plastic, I wanted more of an all purpose coat. The cut and and style is cute. Wish there were more pockets and a 2 way zipper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with Jacket I'm satisfied with this jacket. It's been effective with water proofing and has a good look to it. It's lightweight and comfortable. I do wish there were an extra pocket, as there are only 2. I also wish the hood had stoppers on them to keep the chord in place when you try to bring the hood in closer. I purchased the M in green. I'm about 5'6 and 160 lbs. I have a small upper body and waist but a large bottom and wide hips (athletic build). It just about has enough wiggle room for me in the hip area. I like that it cinches at the waist but I wish there were a tad more wiggle room in the hip area to prevent it from slightly riding up. Maybe a 2 way zipper would be a good solution. The hood is nice and roomy. I bought a similar coat from Marmot several years ago for a slightly cheaper price and the quality of the Marmot was a little above this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite rain jacket I'm 5'4", 132 lbs and I got a size Small in this jacket - my normal jacket size. It fits perfectly - just as a rain jacket should, but cuter b/c of the waist cincher. I'm a big fan of highly functional jackets that are somehow super flattering on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strange Proportions I loved the style of this jacket so I ordered it in a medium, my normal size. For reference, I'm 5'8" and about 145 lbs. The sleeves were nice and long which was awesome because my arms are long! The jacket was super narrow in the hips though--like barely could zipper it, tight on my butt narrow. I had to return it and did not order the large because I think it would have been huge up top and in the sleeves--even for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain jacket The jacket is very comfy and fits true to size i just recently bought rain boots so i was looking for a cute affordable jacket and this was that!! 10/10

Rated 4 out of 5 by from small through hips and butt I was so bummed I had to return this jacket as the quality seemed really, really good. I am pear shaped and this jacket is cut for someone with less hips and butt than I have. If I would have gone up a size to accommodate my backside, the top of the jacket would have been too big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Add ons This jacket is comfortable and light weight but I would like a dual zipper so one can undo from the bottom as well as the top. Also an inside pocket while travelling is always a great idea - one big enough for a passport, cash and/or phone. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy I wanted a sweatshirt with no hood and full-zip. Nothing like that exists so I chose the fleece jackets from Columbia. Love them. They've been perfect this spring in the cold, rainy PNW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This was exactly what I wanted in a rain jacket. I live in oregon and a good rain jacket is needed 24/7.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Good Overall fit is good. Wore this 2 days of constant rain. Stayed dry and comfortable. Ordered a size up to accommodate wearing bulky sweatshirt under. Only negative is would be nice if sleeves had velcro to tighten them. Otherwise, I'd recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rain jacket! I love this jacket so much I bought two :) it's waterproof yet breathable, light and perfect for the 100 days of straight rain Portland has had so far! Highly reccomend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good jacket but a little snug Great jacket but I would order a size up. I am usually an XS but the XS is a little snug. The S would have fit better. Functionality is great though and what I was looking for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeps me dry Bought two of these for two different locations. Specifically, for walking the dogs and the other, for getting my daily walks in no matter the weather. I like the colors I selected...sea salt and the red. Love the hood and especially the longer length in the back. I bought the MED as I like plenty of roominess with the option to wear warm layers underneath in case its cold. Keep in mind, this is a light weight rain jacket. Perfect for keeping you dry in the rain. I would recommend this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very hard crinkley plastic feel This was pretty uncomfortable and not flattering at all. Like wearing a hard plastic bag, no venting either - returning. :(
Date published: 2017-03-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good and works This is a very lightweight rain jacket that looks surprisingly stylish. Some other commenters noted it sounds pretty crinkly when you move. I notice that a little bit, but it's not bad at probably happens with any thin raincoat with water repellant coating. I'm 5'4", 125lbs and the small fit great--the backside covers my behind but doesn't fall awkwardly low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect casual raincoat for Seattle i NEVER write reviews even when i hate a product, so hopefully that can be a testament to how wonderful this jacket is. Dress it down, dress it up. I have Patagonia, North Face and this is my favorite because of the flexibility but waterproofness of the fabric. My other shells have a thick waxy fabric and this is the opposite...i feel like i could sleep i this...COMFORTABLE I walk a mile in this to work in Seattle

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The plastic bag jacket I'm using that title because that's exactly how it felt when I put it on. It even comes with the noise when you move. I usually love my jackets from here, but, obviously not this one. The color was even off. I got an xs, but even that was to big. The sleeves covered my hands, could've used them as gloves!. A very cheaply made jacket for the price. Waited anxiously for it, and now it will be returned. VERY DISAPPOINTED....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and Functional This rain jacket is great! I wore it every single day on vacation to Alaska, and it kept me almost completely dry. The only exception was a four-hour-long kayaking trip in the pouring rain during which my forearms got wet from water dripping down into the sleeves. For that reason, I wish the sleeves were velcro, but that's my only criticism. It looks stylish, is completely waterproof, and actually breathes. I ordered the Pulse color, which is a nice purplish gray. For reference, I am 5'7, 160 lbs, and ordered a medium, which I could still fit a fleece pullover under. This jacket is a great choice if you want something a little more stylish than your standard shell!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would have kept if 2-way zipper Typically sz 8 petite so I was expecting the waist to be too low, but thought the style would be more forgiving in the hips. So sad it didn't work for me (30" waist 40" hips) in either S or M. If tweaks included either more fabric in the hips or 2-way zipper I would have kept the S. Interior zip pockets and Velcro back hood would be my other wish list items. Pros: lightweight, easy to pack, Cypress = cute army green, cinchable waist, dolphin drop hem, good hem length, and elastic sleeves that look cute pushed up. Cons: finding long torso with low waist-hip ratio to be standard Columbia fit, fabric a bit noisy. Columbia, please consider other body types in your designs. I would have paid more!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Great jacket for use as a shell. If it's cold you'll need layers underneath. I wore a fleece under it and it still fit. I wore it while on vacation in Ireland and it held up well and can be "scrunched" up to fit in a backpack. My only two complaints are that it needs more pockets and the hood drawstrings can't be cinched; the drawstrings need to be tied together to secure the hood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color not as pictured! I'm not sure about the other color options but when I excitedly ordered the "Ruby red" I was expecting it to be bright red. Instead I received a HOT PINK jacket on the mail. The quality is great and these jackets would be wonderful but be cautious of the colors. Disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Raincoat! Hey! This raincoat is great. It keeps me completely dry. Only complaint is that the hood doesn't quite stay forward, so my face gets a little wet. Otherwise, excellent product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING if used correctly LOVE this jacket. I think the below review was confused by the functionality of this jacket. This is not your traditional Columbia RAIN jacket. and that is why i love it. Columbia continues to come out with NEW and fresh product so i can broaden my own closet with more pieces from them because I love their brand, instead of getting my regular black windbreaker staple each season. I love throwing this jacket on for running errands, walking the dog, being casual, or even for a windy day walk to work. I think this jacket fits great and I think the cinches are very flattering. I also love that the zip does not have velcro over it to avoid clinging onto scarf, shirt, hair, etc. Some people might shy away from this due to the thin fabric used on it, but this works great for me as it makes for a sleek look, less bulk, and is more flattering on my figure. I am a shorter gal and I love how the back is a little bit longer of a dolphin hem than the front. Great versatile piece to add to my winter/spring seattle wardrobe! You can never have too many black jackets :) i would say it runs a TINY bit large depending on how you like your outerwear/layering circumstances, but i think true to size if compared to other columbia clothing you own

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks like Prince Charming, but it's a frog Got the right size (small), but it still fit like a baggy, shapeless tent even when cinched at the waist. It's too long with the tail in the back (if you're 5'2" and under) and the sleeves are especially baggy and way too long (and I have very long arms). The material also feels flimsy, like it might tear easily, and would not hold up in the rain. Not worth the price. I did like the fit of the hood, if only the rest of the jacket followed suit.
