Women's Arcadia™ II Rain Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 544.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for rainy days I bought this jacket after my husband received his (just like this one but for men), and wore it in a heavy rain while we were traveling. The jacket is small enough to pack in our small backpack, and light weight. I ordered the S and have enough room for layers underneath in case it gets cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleeves are long if you're short I like this jacket a lot - haven't had to test it in heavy rain yet. I'm short - 5'3" - and the sleeves are very long. I have to roll them up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing! Great quality jacket but be careful of the size! Purchased as a gift for someone that would take a medium with no issue. This jacket was small and tight. Love Columbia products but they need to realize that real people wear this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs Large I am 5"2 115lbs and usually wear a small but had to return for an XS, XS was perfect with flees sweater underneath. Most Columbia jackets have long arms so keep this in mind, the velcro helps to tighten the sleeves. Very good quality. light weight, thin and easy to pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for rainy days! I think this is a great raincoat but beware it is not meant for cold and rainy. Very thin. I think if you live where the rainy days are also warm this is the perfect light jacket for you. I live in Chicago so although it’s great for the rain, it doesn’t provide any warmth so i have to pair it with large sweaters to compensate. All in all a good quality raincoat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight rain protection I needed a rain jacket that wasn't bulky and would be easy to wear over sweaters. Also wanted a jacket I could store easily in a bag. This jacket fits those needs. Comfortable when wearing and keeps you dry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love this very nice looking rain jacket. And this was what I tried to look for. Everything is great besides it’s a little large for me. I am 5’3’’ and 110 lb. I ordered the x-small which means I couldn’t get smaller than that. But I love it a lot. It’s so stylish and show my good body shape! I wish the rain comes often then I can wear it often.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality I haven't been able to test this jacket it the rain yet as I've returned for a larger size (like to be able to layer) but it feels well made and has good reviews, so I have high hopes! I'll be bringing it on a camping trip to Iceland so I really hope it holds up to the weather!
Date published: 2018-04-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket for the price I think this is a well made jacket, especially for the price. It fits true to size, except the sleeves were a bit long so I had to cuff them. I haven't had a chance to wear it in the rain yet so I am not sure how it performs. I am 5'5" and approximately 132 lbs and bought a size medium.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Couldn't handle the Boston Marathon I bought this specifically to take to Boston to watch the marathon as they were calling for rain. It didn't take long at all for me to notice that the inner netting and my possessions in my pockets were wet. Enough rain soaked through the back that three other layers underneath the jacket and my entire back were wet. We moved in & out of the rain so I was only outside for a total of 2-2.5 hours. Very disappointed in how this held up, would return if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Rain Really needed a decent rain jacket for Seattle. So far this has proven to be great. Size is perfect. The Velcro tends to get stuck to everything. The hood is also perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not waterproof I have owned this jacket for 7 months and have been soaked through a few times now. I think if a jacket is waterproof it should be able to withstand being in the rain for more than an hour and a half before completely soaking my clothes underneath. Even being in the rain for 15 minutes causes the jacket to be damp on this inside. Overall a good fit but now I need to buy a new jacket because I need a jacket that is truly waterproof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Light enough to pack wherever you go. Love the color too!
Date published: 2018-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat! I purchased this coat to replace my favorite Columbia rain jacket that I lost while traveling a couple months ago. So glad I found this! The jacket fit perfectly despite many reviews saying they run very small, and shipped very quickly. I can still fit a bulky sweater underneath with no issues. The material is thin, but I believe that is what allows it to be breathable and not too hot - rain coats aren't meant to keep you warm in <40 degree weather, just nice and dry. No complaints here and would definitely order again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Columbia’s great quality!!! Colors vivid impeccable quality love your styles price is the best. I shop at the outlet store at lake Oswego Oregon a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally an affordable waterproof packable coat This is exactly what I needed. Fully waterproof, easy to layer over warm layers, packable for hiking etc.... or days when it’s not raining until afternoon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from David Jacket is truly of great quality. Protects well from rain and wind. Style is good too. As of functionality — at least one internal pocket could have been good addition. Otherwise product is great, excellent balance of price and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket! I have a Columbia rain jacket that I have had for 8yrs or so that is still functioning perfectly and has never let me down. I decided i wanted to change it up and get a new color so i bought the Arcadia 2 in the Wild Geranium color as i like bright colors. This jacket has not disappointed me one bit! Just like my old jacket, it takes the rain like a champ! I like the length also as it is just a bit longer to give better coverage. I am 5’6 with a medium build and bought a large because i wanted to be able to layer underneath in colder weather. Worked perfect! You will not be disappointed in this jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Arcadia™ II Rain Jacket This looks like a great jacket. It does run on the smaller size, so please keep in mind when purchasing. I will look into purchasing a larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Jacket I bought this jacket for an upcoming trip to Iceland and Ireland. After looking at many jackets, I choose this one. I liked the style and the fit. I took it for a trial run while walking the dogs. I plan to take it to New Orleans also. I highly recommend this Jacket.
Date published: 2018-04-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! Perfect for a light sprinkle or a heavy downpour. This is basically just the shell, so on cold days I wear a jacket under, but can also wear during the summer without being too hot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Run Small I order a long jacket here on Columbia and I ordered a small and it fit perfectly. I order a small on this one but it runs a bit small and I am a bit disappointed. The quality is good
Date published: 2018-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well in rain! I purchased this jacket because I work outside in the rain in Washington state. The jacket fit perfectly and kept me dry in multiple rain storms. The hood fit well and the closure on the sleeves of the arm protected the rain from coming inside the jacket. I would recommend the light weight jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from small rain coat Sadly we have to return this coat. It is to small. Women's coats are form fitting and not to my liking. I found a similar style in men that I am going to order instead.
Date published: 2018-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from hood covers my baseball hat I usually wear a small or medium in most things. Runs a bit small and the arms are small also but it will be fine unless I want a lot of warm clothes underneath. Nice and waterproof. Hood covers my brim of hat which is very nice. It's a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog Walker I’m a professional dog walker so I’m required to work in all weather. I’m in and out of my car into the elements multiple times a day. My body heats up and cools down back and forth all day. I struggle to find clothes that truly keep me dry, breathable material, light weight and comfortable. This jacket hits all the marks! I highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket “Dynasty” is more like a royal blue than the darker navy that appears on screen. While I wish the on screen representation would have been more accurate, I don’t mind the color. Overall this is a good little light weight rain jacket. I like that I can fold it into the pocket. It’s very convenient for travel.
