Women's Arcadia™ II Jacket - Plus Size is rated out of 5 by 304.
Rated 5 out of 5 by rwagner007 from Wonderful jacket!! I do not generally like wearing a heavy coats during the winter, but I do wear a lot of sweatshirts and hoodies. This jacket is fantastic! It fits over my sweaters, sweatshirts, and hoodies and provides outstanding protection from the elements! I would highly recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kim001 from Love this jacket! I recently moved to a rainy area and I bought a couple "cheap" rain jackets and they didn't work for me. I know Columbia is an awesome brand so when I saw a sale on the Arcadia II jacket I ordered one. I read the reviews and was worried about the shoulders being tight but they are fine for me. The underside of the upper arms is where I could use just a tiny bit more room but it's fine the way it is. I wear a 2x-3x and I ordered a 3x. It fits great, I have a little room if I wanted to wear a thicker top underneath. It has enough room so I can sit while it's zipped. I believe the 2x would have been too snug zipped and the arms may have been too short. I love the hood, it's not so big it flops over my face. I also love the mesh lining because it makes the jacket not clingy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coastalbaby from HIgh and Dry I usually take a 1X. I ordered both the 1X and 2X and decided to keep the 2X because I liked to have a bit more room for layering. Primary use is to allow me to walk in the rain and today it kept me high and dry for over 5 miles - wish it had matching rain pants. When I tried my usual 1X size, it did fit - but was a bit snugger around the hips than would have been comfortable to do my walks in. Bonus is the draw string on the hood which really kept the rain out today. Overall weight is light - I ordered the yellow which is a wonderful rubber ducky color. I love the jacket and recommend. (packs light too)

Rated 5 out of 5 by adventuregirl20 from Size up! I love this rain jacket! I love the color, and I love that it does the job of actually keeping rain off of me. I got one that was on sale. It is a red color.The only thing I would say, like other reviewers, is that you should size up. If you are using this in winter time with layers underneath, then it will be hard to fit it over your size IF you don’t size up. I am 5’7”, and I would say my normal size is 2X, but I did get a 3X in this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momboqueen from Nice Jacket I ordered one size up so I could layer underneath, because this is a thin jacket. I like the drawstring on the hood and the high collar that you can fasten if you are cold. I ran water over this for a few minutes and did not see any water get through to the other side. The quality seems really good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KFROMBC123 from Comfortable and stylish I love that Columbia offers sizes for everyone, it really can be hard to find good plus size outdoor gear but Columbia never disappoints. This jacket is roomy and comfortable without looking baggy. The color was slightly different from how it looked on the website but it is a great color all the same. Living in the Pacific Northwest this jacket is perfect for keeping me warm and dry without being too heavy. Definitely would recommend!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by OceanMtn from My Favorite This is my favorite raincoat and I have it in 2 colors. I go a size big so I can layer well under it. Living where it rains ~150"/year it is necessary to have great rainwear that lasts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EAM54 from Great Jacket I love this jacket, the color( I got the Navy), the weight, its perfect for rainy days. My only issue is the sizing. I am normally an xl, read the reviews that this can run tight so I went up to a 1X. Sadly if I am wearing a heavy sweater the arms are still tight. It isn't so much of an issue that I will return it, I just know that I can't wear a chunky sweater if I intend to wear this jacket. I have to say it does keep you pretty warm, even with just a light sweatshirt under it. I wore it last week when the temp was about 20 and it was pouring rain, and I was perfectly warm!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luvselle from Functional Piece of Outdoor Gear For reference, I generally wear size 22 in most retail clothing lines, and between 2x and 3x tops. Columbia I wear size 24 bottoms and 3x tops. This raincoat runs tighter in the arms compared to the Kaleidaslope jacket I have in the same size. It's a good option for warmer weather when I have less bulky clothing and/or and layers going on. It is comfortable and breathable. I ordered in Dark Ivy which to me at least, appears online to have a hint of teal in the product pictures. In person it is a solid jewel-tone green.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CJWid87 from Good Jacket, but Arm Holes Small for Plus Size I have had my eye on this jacket for a long time, and when it went on sale, I was really excited. Unfortunately, when it arrived, I found out the arm holes are too small for my arms. I wear 3x comfortably in a number of other products, but I couldn't get this on over my upper arms. If you're a plus size gal with wide upper arms, this might not work for you! Fit okay elsewhere, but my arms were crushed, and therefore I couldn't even tell if it would fit my shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sabraintheworld from Wonderful Planning a trip to Alaska in the summer I was looking for a good quality rainproof jacket, with a bright color. This one is exactly what I was looking for. It is a little bigger than I thought it should be, but coming to think about the trip it might be a b blessing as I can layer under it. I love it, and with the sale price it was a good price as well. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suedex from It's a Rain Jacket This is a rain jacket and it does what it is supposed to. I am happy with this jacket and wear it a lot with a vest underneath for warmth. The zippered pockets are great and I like the hood. Recommend this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nursepadme from Love this jacket! Great for the wind and rain in Scotland/Ireland! Not heavy, but good at blocking the wind. Not super noisy, good zipper pockets for storing stuff. Only down side was my makeup rubbed off like crazy on to the "wind, dark cyan" color (which doesn't look like it's available at the time of this review) and it didn't come off easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hiker0057 from Arcadia jacket The body of the jacket is true to size but the arms need more room, especially considering this jacket would most likely be used over thicker clothing. I would also like the zipper to zip up from the bottom as well as down from the top given the jacket's length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gooberfarts from Love my jacket I did have to order a size up, it was a little tight in my shoulder area, but thnx to the draw string, the extra baggage was easily contained. For people who get a little to hot this jacket is thin and easy to put a sweater underneath. Its completely waterproof, tested true to oregon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Temp from The color of this item is amazing I ordered the item based off the price and reviews. I love the color is to vibrant. Couple of cons, it runs a little small I ordered my size, never had an issue with Columbia and their items. This does run a little small, so I can only wear a shirt underneath no layering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pennyj from Too short, and Velcro instead of snaps I’m admittedly choosy. I’m just not understanding this rain jacket. Instead of snaps, there are Velcro strips all down the front. It’s sharp, hard to open, and snags EVERYTHING else you are wearing. It’s mid hip length means it’s ineffective as a rain jacket, and it’s one way zipper is sure to get torn out at the bottom every time you get in or out of a car or climb a steep step. The color is gorgeous, but as a coat it just doesn’t work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Clarkegirl16 from Good jacket It works well to keep the rain off. Very small in the shoulders and arms compared to the rest of the coat. Usually I wear a 1x or 2x and had to order the 3x and still can’t wear bulky items underneath.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Idk124 from Yeah it fits but.... The sleeves really are too small. I bought a 3x and it fits great around the mid section. But these aren’t not 3x sleeves. I’m gonna keep it just because I can put it on and it looks ok.... but I’m not happy about my purchase. I really wanted to buy another one and even a coat from Columbia but I’m not going to. I’ll look elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zbt29 from Size Really like this jacket, but it runs very small! I like enough room to have option to wear sweatshirt or a couple thin layers under rain jacket. Reordered next size up, and that isn’t all that much bigger. But kept it anyway because I like the jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by gin1234 from Runs small in arms This is a great looking rain jacket, seems really well made, and the dark raspberry color is just gorgeous. Unfortunately, I had to return the jacket. It was just to snug around my arms. There was no way i could wear this jacket with any kind of layers underneath. Very sad, but I'll try other Columbia raincoats until I find the right one .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zooemployee13 from I love this jacket I work outside at a zoo year-round and I had been on a quest to find the perfect rain jacket because where I live spring, summer and fall, it rains. For days. I had to walk from one end of the zoo I work at to the other in a heavy thunderstorm and this jacket kept my torso dry. My pants on the other hand, well you can imagine. I purchased this jacket in Glacier and it is just wonderful. I like how you can pack it down small enough to stick in a fanny pack that way you have hands free but you still have it with you in the event of a sudden storm. My only complaint is that occasionally the right arm pinches but that may be due to my body shape. As a plus sized woman having a company that makes actual plus sized clothes instead of pretending, unlike some companies, is amazing and I am saving up to buy more products from Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by atiffyfit from Great jacket! I bought this one and a longer rain coat and am very happy with both. Previous purchases turned out to be water resistant and not water proof and I was told to get a Columbia. So I bought two! This is agreat light, breathable short rainjacket that is perfect for 3 season rains. It's shorter and hits at the hip, so if you're looking for a shorter jacket that is waterproof, get this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tstaff0531 from Great Jacket! This is a great jacket! It is true to fit and breathable. I like the partial elastic/velcro in the cuffs. I also like how high the neck comes up to help cover you from weather. There is an elastic pull in the hood that pulls tight for even more overage. When pulled, the elastics allows for a bill to help shield your face. I think this rain jacket has great function for the price. Great selection of colors available. I was very happy with the price I paid for this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CJADC from Lightweight and roomy Good jacket in a summer downpour. Zips and pockets worked well. I have had this same type Columbia jacket for at least 12 years. The waterproofing eventually breaks down, but I also fold and stuff into a backpack. The fit is roomy enough to layer with a heavy sweater so it is also the jacket I take travelling into cold weather when I want to pack light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigAmy from Plus Size Win As a plus size woman, I frequently struggle to find products that fit and do what they are supposed to do. Bought this jacket for an Alaskan cruise coming up, and wore it recently during a rainstorm at home in Texas. This jacket is truly a jacket...lightweight, breathable, and it kept the rain at bay very well. I read through many reviews before purchasing and so many people commented about true-to-size-ness and small arm holes. I reluctantly ordered my size. It fits perfectly, zips up, with a little room to spare for a sweater underneath if weather necessitates. Overall, I’m very pleased with my purchase. In my experience, that is a rarity when online shopping for anything plus size.
