Women's Arcadia™ II Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 237.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it once I ordered up a size This is a really compact rain coat great for packing for travel. I had to order up a size, but then it fit well. The bright lavender/intense violet is bright without being garish. Didn't realize that there are 2 colors-- darker panels on the sides-- from the photo, but it looks nice on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outdoorsylady I have had 2 of these jackets. The first one saw me through a 2 week trip through Europe in April when it was rainy and snowy. The jacket kept me dry and warm with an extra layer underneath. I lost the first one, so I got the same jacket again, and took it on a week-long trip rafting the Colorado through the Grand Canyon. It was durable and functional. I did get wet in the biggest rapids, but it was because water came in through the neck; I was doused with gallons of water at a time! The jacket did keep me warm, though. That water was cold! I appreciate being able to purchase quality outdoor wear in plus sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!! This Jacket did not disappoint.. I love Columbia jackets because i have large arms and it's hard for me to find jackets that doesn't cut my circulation off..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket I wore this jacket on a rainy day right after it arrived and then gave my old rain jackets away. I got this one in the mid blue color in one size larger than usual. It does not seem hot at all. The length is perfect with a little extra coverage. The front has a zip and Velcro too -very handy. Very nice quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noisiest Jacket Noisiest jacket I’ve ever worn, got it months ago tried it on it looks amazing. We’re a neurotic bunch of friends, all through grammar; school some same HS, still hanging out. No filters needed, or owned lolol. My bff purchased a beautiful soft shell pink Columbia, the swoosh noise bothers her. We have to meet to see if she can stand the crackle noise of my hard shell jacket before trip. Lolol! I’m hopeful that it’ll get softer when used, anyone know what jackets don’t swoosh and crackle! Hahahaha! Really pretty jackets both of them. I love the small brimmed hood, perfect design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Waterproof Jacket!! Very nice waterproof jacket. Warm, yet very breathable. Fits perfect with just enough room to layer underneath. Very vibrant color; it’s so much prettier in person. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fits great everywhere but the arms I wear a size 16W (wider in the waist) and ordered the 2 X so I would have plenty of room for a sweater under the jacket. It fits perfectly everywhere but the arms. The arms are snug from the shoulder to the elbow. I kept the jacket as it did work for me but I would encourage Columbia to redesign the arms!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Velcro The Velcro on the end of the sleeves get stuck to the velcro on the jacket. It's a little annoying, but it will get in the way and become fussy after getting stuck a few too many times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have This is my second Arcadia jacket and I love it. I love the fit and color selection available in my size. I also like that it kept me completely dry in a down pour while I was on vacation. I was outside for several hours while it was raining and everything underneath the jacket was dry. It is very light and functional. This jacket is a must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful rain jacket Love this coat.. repels water and great on windy days. Bonus that it packs into one of the pockets to easily fit into any bag. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again, but probably won’t have to I bought my Columbia rain jacket because the last rain coat I purchased lost its rain proofing after a few washes. I’ve struggled to find a warm but not bulky jacket that truly is waterproof. This is it! Love the fit and the scrunch of the hood. I would definitely recommend this product and expect it to last a long time. Probably my new favorite spring/fall jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Woman’s Arcadia Jacket I love the weight and function of this jacket. As in other reviews, I would say it runs a little small and recommend to order up a size. I chose the light purple —on a rainy day , the color is uplifting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Nice light weight jacket for raining days. Keeps you nice and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Good , Fuctions Well I love the colour and the look of this coat, but most of all I like that it keeps the rain off without overheating me. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upper arms tight I loved the colour and the fit of this jacket with the exception of the upper arms, which were tight and restrictive. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
Date published: 2018-04-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too small in the upper arms I should have heeded the comments made by other reviewers regarding the fit. Yes, the upper arms are too tight. I am a plus-size woman, and the jacket fits fine everywhere else, except for the upper arms. I cannot wear it comfortably.
Date published: 2018-04-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would recommend This jacket runs a little small but its a great jacket. Great for rainy days and if you're running around and need a light jacket.
Date published: 2018-04-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Small Very nice lightweight jacket. Great colors. However, it does run small. For the plus size ladies, I highly recommend you order one size up. The armholes and across the chest are tight. If you normally wear a 3X, I would pass on this jacket. You will not be comfortable. I really wanted it to fit properly, because it is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Arcadia Ii Ordered the Arcadia II in the blush pink for my daughter. The color is bright and fun, and the jacket looks great. Columbia is the biggest and best at outdoor gear in the PacNW and this jacket shows why - its functional, comfortable, and weatherproof. When a heavy jacket is too much, the Arcsdia II is the perfect alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket I love it! I want to purchase a second one in a different color! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good material but It’s kinda tight around the armpit area I got the size 1x so i would recommend sizing two sizes up if u want a comfertable fit .. I would def return my 1x for a 2x maybe 3x .. light weight
Date published: 2018-03-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice rain jacket I should have listened to the reviews that said this jacket runs small. I ordered a large enough size, but this jacket was still too small, especially in the sleeves. I returned it for size. Everything else about this jacket was very nice.
Date published: 2018-03-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for PNW Kept me dry, it’s packable and plenty of room for layers. I’ve worn my Columbia vest or fleece underneath this. Sleeves were a little snug with the fleece underneath, but so cozy. Great jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket This is a great rain jacket for all seasons!!! This is my second time buying this exact jacket (only because I gained weight ) and this jacket is awesome! Definitely keeps you warm and definitely keeps you dry :) I highly recommend this for jacket for all seasons of the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I always loved Columbia outerwear. Not only is it stylish but it does exactly what it says it would do,protect against the weather. This jacket is nice and I don't get wet at all.I was hesitant because it's white but so far I haven't had any problems. I liked my jacket so much I purchased my son and jacket from here as well.I will be buying more outerwear from Columbia soon for the whole family. If you're looking for a nice jacket to throw on to run your errands without worrying about getting wet,this is the jacket for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome but runs small in the chest area I really love the jacket! Only problem is it runs a bit small mostly in the chest. If I went a size up I would be drowning in the arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Best jacket EVER!!! Definetly recommending.
Date published: 2018-03-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more ventilation The fit and look of this jacket were great. True to size, and I was able to get warm layers underneath. I use this jacket mostly for hiking and snowshoeing. When hiking I found the big flaw is it is missing pit zips for ventilation, so event though it is advertised as breathable It became very uncomfortable on a warmer wet hike. It keeps the rain out great, but not great for spring/warmer weather hikes where it is wet out as the heat gets trapped inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Rain/Wind Jacket The first time I ordered it was a little small (I had ordered an XL) so I was disappointed when it didn't fit. My fault because I didn't read the fine print. Before returning it I had my granddaughter (college age) try it on and it fit her. I did go ahead and order another in a larger size (2X although I would normally wear a 1X) and I really do love it. It's come in handy because we are having a lot of rain right now.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great protection This is my first Columbia jacket, and I can say that I’m love. Every rain jacket I owned got drenched in moderate rain, but not this one. I was completely dry and protected from the wind. This is a thin jacket but it keeps you relatively warm from the cool wind during a storm (in Texas). I wasn’t sure what size to order, I wear size 14 and the 1X was a little large which is ok so I can layer it with a fleece jacket. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! I was looking for a lightweight jacket what would still be warm and that also repelled water. This fits well, looks nice, and is very functional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift I purchased this jacket as a gift for my cousin. It fits true to size and she can fit it over her puffer. She does a lot of work outside, and I think this will be perfect for her. The materials feel like they are high quality, and it looks really good on her! I cannot speak to its performance, I do not think she has had an opportunity to use it in any rain yet, but I know that she really loves the jacket. Thank you for making great quality gear!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I love this jacket. I am tall and this jacket is plenty long enough in length and sleeve's are perfect for my long arms. The only complaint I have is the sleeves are tight. I had hoped to wear a heavy Columbia fleece jacket under this one, but the sleeves are to small.

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.)
Date published: 2017-12-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Functional I returned this item because I needed a jacket that was longer, but I wished I could keep it! Nice fabric, good color, not as heavy a fabric as the one I kept. The fit was good, but I ordered a size larger based on other reviews. It was roomy enough to wear over a light sweater. Sleeve length was good. Closure is zipper and Velcro.
