Women's Arcadia™ II Jacket - Extended Size is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 134.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket While I haven't worn this in a downpour, it did keep me dry when out for a few hours in a drizzle. I bought it in the Blue Heron color and love it - it's a bit different than the blue you get in most active wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from RUNS A LITTLE SMALL I am normally a 1x in most coats, but when i got a 1x in this i could just barely zip it. I would suggest going a size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I’ve been looking for This rain jacket is great I love it! It runs true to size for the most part a little tight across the shoulders with a sweat shirt underneath but nothing uncomfortable. Great for the rainy season when carrying a umbrella is to much with kids and all their stuff
Date published: 2018-03-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for rainy day This jacket keeps me dry in the pouring rain. Sizing permits a fleece jacket or sweater underneath for warmth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made Good Great cost for warm weather. Wore it on a cold day and i was FREEZING! Do not wear for warmth! The arms run a lil snug compared to my winter coat, which has plenty of room. Overall, well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best raincoat I’ve owned a lot of raincoats but this one is by far the best one. I would recommend this Jacket to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Protection! I bought this because sometimes it is difficult to carry my backpack and other items and hold an umbrella at the same time. I have worn this several times now and love it. The hood is great because of the drawstrings I can close it in around my face to keep the wind from blowing it back off of my head. The drawstring at the bottom ensures I can get a close fit and not have wind blowing up the coat as I walk. It is water repellent so that even if its a heavy rain when I remove it I am dry under it. I would recommend this coat to anyone looking for a rain coat. It does fit a little small so if I am wearing a more bulky shirt the coat fits slightly more snug than when I am wearing a thin shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasts forever! I am only buying a new one for a new burst of colour in my wardrobe. I have owned one for four years and have done many portaging/camping expeditions in it, plus my everyday wear, and it is still in great shape. It is extremely waterproof, breathable and comfort level is great. Packs away into any small space for a just in case on any trip. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love almost everything about this jacket I shopped a long time trying to find the right jacket to wear most of the year around in the Pacific Northwest and this one is almost everything I wanted. My main problem with it is merely cosmetic. The sleeves are way too short. My sweater sleeves are exposed when I wear it and I will have to wear gloves to keep my hands warm and dry. I could’ve used another inch in the length overall too. I wear an xl but had to size up and pay extra for a 1x because the jacket runs small. I don’t plan on returning it because I love everything else about it.
Date published: 2018-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking, I bought this rain jacket one size larger so I could layer it over clothing. It is a great looking jacket and I love the color (I got the Blue Heron color). The fit is perfect for me. I love this jacker and would highly recommend it and would definitely buy it again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best daily jacket in PNW Love this color! Very pretty french blue. Sleeve runs a little less full than my last jacket, which lasted 4 years. Love Columbia's quality!
Date published: 2018-02-22
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Odd fit Sleeves are too short. General fit is large, other than the sleeves - I sized up per other reviews and I should not have. No tailoring to the shape at all, no unique features. The waterproofing is effective and I like the high neck when using the hood. I returned due to sizing issues.
Date published: 2018-02-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the jacket Colour is vibrant, it has a somewhat fitted style rather than bring boxy like dome plus size clothing, it is well made and it rolls up into a tiny shape, easily fitting in a larger purse and easy to pack when travelling. It dries quickly once out in the rain! Love ❤️ this this jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accidental purchase I would call my purchase of this rain jacket a happy accident. I didn’t realize it was a rain jacket, I just really liked the cut of the jacket. I didn’t own a rain coat and I liked how well it fit so I decided to keep it. Now I have a rain jacket to take with me on hikes that will last for years.
Date published: 2018-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I love this jacket. Like others have said it feels a little tight in the arms as you are putting it on but once on it is no longer tight. All of my friends love the color. It keeps me dry in our long rainy season.
Date published: 2018-02-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light jacket or raincoat This jacket is very light. It’s good for a rainy summer day. It doesn’t get too hot, but keeps the moisture out. I got the Dynasty color thinking it was a navy color. It’s a lot lighter than the picture. It’s almost a royal blue. That was a bit disappointing, but otherwise I recommend this product.
Date published: 2018-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is great for the rain and a great spring jacket. I love the jacket it is light weight and great in the rain, I also love the color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I love this jacket. The sleeves are a little short but I have long arms. The water repels off perfectly and the hood doesn’t bother me as some have. The only negative is the mesh lining inside. My ring gets caught sometimes when I put it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oakster As usual great product and quality. Fits a bit smaller. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
Date published: 2017-12-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I was worried about how it would fit because more fitted jackets tend to be tricky with size. The previous reviews were spot on with saying how it fits true to size and a tiny bit tight around arma but only when putting it on. I would highly recommend this (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women’s Arcadia II Jacket- Plus I was hesitant to purchase online, however, I bought it and was delighted to receive it so quickly. The jacket is everything and more than I was hoping it would be! It is lightweight, durable, and all I have been searching for in a daily rain jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry like the Mojave If you want warmth, this is not the jacket for you. If you want to stay dry, this is what you want in your wardrobe collection. The arms are a bit small on me but my arms are larger than most people my size.
Date published: 2017-11-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rain jacket When I read some of the other reviews about size and people stating they ordered a size up, I did the same. I originally ordered the 3X and it was just too large, so I returned it (had to pay to ship it back) and ordered the 2X and it fits much better. Having said that the plus size jackets could be a bit roomier in the shoulder and arm area. But there was ample room in the body of the jacket. It's great for a rainy day, and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love I absolutely love this jacket. I brought the 3x and it fits me perfect... since my thighs and waist are more curvy. I can’t stop wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Was looking for a replacement light jacket for spring and fall season. I absolutely love this jacket. Good quality and looks good. I bought a plus size in 1x as I was unsure how it would fit. It’s a bit larger than I thought but that’s ok, I can wear a sweater or bulky top with it. Great price too. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This jacket is offered at a great price considering the product you receive. It's water proof and keeps both you and your pocket contents dry on a rainy day.
Date published: 2017-10-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit I wanted to purchase a coat that I could wear on cooler nights in the Summer and that would get me through Fall as well, this coat is perfect! The colour is beautiful and the fit is exactly what I was sized for by the sizing guide. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is absolutely amazing This jacket is thin but still keeps you surprisingly warm. The waterproof ability is absolutely great, it repels the water great. The only downside is that it is a little tite around the shoulder area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! Beautiful jacket. I have wanted a Columbia jacket for years as my friends all like your products and have had them for years. Quality & function are outstanding! Runs small so I sized up 2 sizes. Roomy but wanted the fleece jacket to go under it for warmth on a cold rainy day!
Date published: 2017-09-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE MY NEW JACKET.... I ordered this jacket for my upcoming cruise to Alaska next year. It fits perfectly with my fleece jacket that is also Columbia. The length is perfect being 5' 8 and it hood really covers my face. My only concern is that the hood doesn't have a pull string like my windbreaker jacket also from Columbia. Otherwise, very happy. Thanks for the great products.
Date published: 2017-09-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket - just what I wanted I ordered this is one size larger and it is large but I wanted to be able to layer underneath so it's perfect for my needs. I love this jacket! The only thing I would change is that I would add a double zipper. I hate sitting in the car with my jacket all bunched up in my lap. Other than that it seems perfect.
Date published: 2017-08-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice rain jacket I ordered up a size because I live in FL where it rains all summer and didn't want the jacket to cling. It's plenty oversized. I also want to be able to layer if it gets chilly. The color (whitened pink) is great for hot climates! I love the mesh lining and would like it to go all the way down the arms not stop at elbow length so the taffeta lining doesn't get clammy in humidity. A double zipper would be nice so it can be opened from the bottom a bit when sitting. The hood is a bit bulky and I would prefer if it could be stowable in the collar when not needed. I would also like the arms to be a bit fuller as the body is plenty large to layer but arms will be a bit snug if I add anything more than a thin fleece even though I ordered up a size. None if the things I would like changed are show stoppers, though and I love the jacket!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket! I bought this for my daughter b/c she has to wait at the bus stop and needs something that will keep her dry. So far, so good. I read the jacket runs a little small so bought a size up and it is perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Tight This doesn't fit your plus size ladies, tight in bust and arms area
Date published: 2017-08-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring on the rain! The first thing I thought when this came in the mail was that the color (wild geranium), while still pretty, was a bit brighter than it seemed on the site. When I put it on, I noticed it's a bit tighter and more tapered than my other Columbia tops and jackets of the same size, especially in the shoulders and upper arms. That said, it still fits well, but if you want a loose rain jacket or want to wear thick layers underneath, definitely order a size up. Compared to other packable rain jackets, this one is bulky and heavy. It was raining heavily the day it arrived, so I tested it out right away, and it works very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Torrential Monsoons I wore this jacket in a horrific monsoon, in Cambodia, while ATVing and the only part of me that was dry was under the jacket.
Date published: 2017-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting color and very roomy. I wanted to buy a large enough jacket to fit over my coats to provide waterproof protection. This provides a lot of room. The material it very thin, so it can be worn on mild days. I wan't sure if I would love the color, but I really like it.
Date published: 2017-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket - definitely waterPROOF I had an older Columbia waterproof rain coat (used in Ireland, Vietnam, Indonesia), but it was mid-thigh length & I wanted a shorter rain "jacket" which would be smaller to pack in my duffle. I found this jacket during the website's Summer Sale & purchased the mint-green color (Sea Ice). The length of this jacket is what I wanted & the color is very pretty; the darker color on the sides helps give my body some shape & a waistline, so I don't look like a scoop of pistachio ice cream. (!) It folds up smaller & is lighter than my older coat. It has performed well during several summer thunderstorms here in the Rockies - I was still dry afterwards, so it's definitely waterPROOF (not just water "resistant"). As always with Columbia outwear I bought 'up' one size to the 2X so I'd have room to layer clothing underneath during cooler spring/fall weather with heavier tops, a fleece vest and/or a sweater underneath. (I wear a 1X size in Columbia pants or shirts, for comparison.) It fits me like other outerwear does in the Columbia line, including the circumference of the sleeves being large enough so the long sleeves of a shirt or lightweight sweater will fit inside comfortably. Thank you, Columbia, for remembering even plus-sized gals like to be active in the outdoors! ♥♥
