Women's Arcadia™ II Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 217.
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.

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.

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 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

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.

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 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 lightweight jacket I haven't worn this yet as its January and I'm in Chicago. I'm looking forward to wearing it in the spring. It seems to be good for a rain/windy day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect This is a great jacket in the Oregon rain. Not a warm jacket but great outer layer.

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!
Date published: 2018-01-05
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.)

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this rain jacket Bought this as a rain jacket for a trip. It is a great jacket but not very warm. It is thin. I enjoyed it and opted to size up for plenty of room. My true size was a bit snug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arcadia Ii Jacket It's a really great rain jacket, if that's what you are looking for. The jacket looks a lot heavier in picture. I was looking more for a winter coat. Love the coat just a little disappointed in the weight of it
Date published: 2017-11-10
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 I give this jacket an A++ It has been a while since I have purchased a new rain jacket. I was scrolling through the website and stumbled across this gem! I have always been a little wary when purchasing outerwear online, But this jacket has restored my faith! It fits so well and I couldn't be happier! Columbia knows how to make good products and I'm a frequent customer and this jacket is one on my favorites.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from over priced horrible paper thin wind breaker jacket that is way over priced I paid $75 and so not worth it. The jacket looks nothing like the picture online the picture online looks thicker and durable and it's not!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket The jacket came in very quickly and was perfect. It fit great, it's a great length and it's extremely warm. I can't wait to use it in Chicago this Winter.

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 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof. The jacket fits very nicely, has a nice shape, and is attractive. It's a nice windbreaker for cooler days. My problem is that it is definitely NOT waterproof. When I wear it in the rain, water rolls off me for about 3 minutes before it starts soaking through the material. I took my dog on a 10 minute walk around the block in moderate rain (he's slow) and by the time we got back to the house, I was soaked through to the skin and had to throw all my clothes in the dryer. So if you're going to be outside in a light drizzle for under 5 minutes, you might be OK. But if it's actually raining, you're going to get drenched. I'm really disappointed, because I like the jacket otherwise. But I did buy it because I wanted a waterproof raincoat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Love this as a light rain jacket for the wet PNW!
Date published: 2017-10-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket, but... I really like the jacket. It’s zips up and fits over my butt, which is on the bigger side. The only qualm I have is with the arm holes. As a plus size women, I have bigger upper arms and this jacket is a little too tight. I would suggest on the next version of the jacket they open up the arm holes a little. Other than that I love it!
Date published: 2017-10-09
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.)
Date published: 2017-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket-but get a size bigger! Light and comfy. Great quality. Just be sure to go up a size to be comfortable. I typically order a 2x but got a 3x-it fits like a 2x! Would recommend though!
Date published: 2017-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great windbreaker and rainjacket This jacket is exactly as advertised except nicer. I am particularly gratified by the fit - as I have been unable to find a waterproof jacket that fits comfortably in stores. I was concerned about the sizing as there is very little difference on the fit/size guide between the regular XL and the plus 1x and I had tried on the XL and found it too small, so I was pleasantly surprised at the difference. I can wear another layer underneath for warmth which works well in the cool wet autumn weather in Seattle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arcadia II Jacket This is my 2nd purchase of this particular jacket - It's a great lite weight rain jacket. Took it along for a late spring trip to Alaska which included 4 days in Nome area - layered with a lite down vest it was a perfect choice for staying warm and cool as the day required! The adjustable hood and sleeves are a plus too! I probably could wear the 1X but I like a loose fit and ability to layer.
