Women's Arcadia™ II Rain Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 359.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staying Dry I originally wanted a jacket that was waterproof. That’s it. Truly waterproof. I decided to purchase this jacket and give it a try. I’ve been on two outings where it has pour down so much cold rain that I should have run for cover. However, the large overhanging hood, the stellar waterproofing and the heat tech inside kept me dry and warm. While others ran away to find shelter, I was able to continue working in the rain. I’ve already recommended this jacket to family. They are loving theirs as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket. The water beads on top and does not seep through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I expected :) This is a great coat for every day wear. Reasonable price and you get what you pay for! Impressed with the water resistance - better than a similar product from another prominent retailer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted" Columbia is my go to brand, as it has survived my stint in Peace Corps, many hiking, camping and kayak trips. This jacket is waterproof and light, exactly what I wanted. Thank you Columbia!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ended up returning this Only because I needed something warmer. This jacket seemed like a quality rain jacket but is super thin and I was hoping for something warmer so I wouldn't have to layer quite so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift! I️ bought this for my daughter for her 20th birthday. As a student at a very wet Oregon University, she asked for a lightweight, water PROOF, jacket that could hold up to the crazy wet Oregon weather yet, be thin enough to stow away in her back pack. A few days after she received it, I called her to follow up. Her response: I’m wearing it right now and it’s pouring! She was walking back from classes and rain was much heavier than expected. She said she was dry and LOVED the hood. It was roomy enough for her to wear a hoody sweatshirt and headphones underneath and still be comfortable. Thank you Columbia, for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry but a little warm I love this rain shell, but it is a little too warm to use in summer. I love it for running around the city, but it would probably be too sweaty to hike in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Arcadia Rain Jacket II Living on the West Coast, I have needed a waterproof raincoat for some time. I ordered my coat online and was very impressed with every step of this process- including email updates about where my coat was in shipping. Delivery was true to their timeline. It makes me feel confident to order more products from Columbia in this way. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This rain jacket is well-made and light weight. The color was a bit darker than the picture. Nice full mesh lining and big zippered pockets on the sides. I was looking for a front double zipper so I had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket Living in Florida, owning a rain jacket is a must. The cheap previous one I had made me sweat. Spending a little extra money on this one was worth it. It is so comfortable and keeps me cool and dry. I will be buying more in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Jacket for Light Rain I purchased this jacket for the sole purpose of wearing out in dreary weather - it's perfect! The material is great and seems to be durable. It arrived on time, maybe even a day or two earlier than expected. My only complaint is that I ordered a size small (I'm a small person) and I wish I had gotten a medium to wear thicker clothes under.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good material, just bulky Nice material, but I found the coat to look a bit masculine and bulky. If it had some extra pleats or something it might look a bit more feminine. I would still recommend this product though
Date published: 2017-11-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has great features! This jacket is lightweight and keeps me dry when it rains. I am very satisfied with this product and love shopping at Columbia. I highly recommend this for anyone in need of a rain jacket it's definitely worth the price I paid. The pockets have zippers to keep objects like keys and wallets dry too! Only trouble I had is keeping the hood on when it rains because it's a little big for my head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome rain jacket! I bought this jacket for a trip up to Seattle where it rained A LOT. This jacket kept me nice and dry. It is a great top layer and wind breaker as well. A little short on the arms for me but I am fairly tall (5'10). Definitely would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive & affordable Rain jacket My daughter has owned this jacket for one year. It's her go to jacket for most weather conditions. On her recommendation, I ordered myself 2 of these jackets. I was very pleased that they were on sale too! I wear a size 12 in women's clothing so I ordered the size large. It fits nicely with room for a sweater if needed. Very happy with my purchase and I do recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arcadia Rain Jacket I wanted a travel rain jacket that was not too heavy, rainproof and a good neutral color to match anything i carried. With the hood and the omni tech as an added feature, this truly was a perfect choice. I got the stone which was the best color. I love my jacket, really really happy with my selection. I have had excellent experiences with Columbia in the past owning many winter coats and jackets. Again, a happy customer! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect rain + jacket! I've worn this jacket twice in the rain now and it does it's job well! It's also just great for everyday wear. It's light weight and breathable, has nice outer pockets, and good sleeve length. I'm 5'7" and ordered an xl so I could wear over heavy fleece in colder weather. It fits great with room to move. Perfect! Would definitely recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Waterproof We both purchased waterproof jackets for a fishing trip at the cape. It rained all day on 10/10/17, we stood in the rain and fished. As we were leaving, we took off our jackets before going into the car and it didn't matter, we were soaked inside out. I purchased a jacket at the outlets years ago and never had an issue with it, it was definitely waterproof. The new styles, not so sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love everything about this Jacket! The Arcadia II is light-weight, well tailored and comes in the best colors (Night Watch is my favorite). For some reason, I tend to take a size up in Columbia garments (one size larger than I normally wear in other clothes). I don't care what the label says as long as the garment fits, and this jacket does. I'm actually looking forward to wearing it in a downpour and plan to bring it to Europe with me in a few weeks. Gives me a nice shape (not a boxy jacket) and has velcro cuffs and a roomy hood. It also packs into a pocket, so it needs very little room in a suitcase. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for great price I bought this jacket as it started to get more rainy out. Much to my pleasure it was fully waterproof and has good air flow in the jacket as to not overheat. It is also a great shell for those who like to layer up. It is great quality and I cant wait to use it for winters to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket Ever! This hits all the marks - stylish, great fit, super functional! Good for hiking in the Gorge, or hanging out downtown - rain or shine. Great lightweight fabric that is super for layering. Again - the fit is terrific. I'm an XL - taller and a little on the chubby side - and this jacket shows off all the good and hides the not so great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for PNW rainy season Love this jacket! Exactly what I was looking for for the PNW unpredictable rainy weather. Have gotten lots of comments on the color. Repels rain very well without making you cold from the rain, does feel a little small when trying to wear a sweatshirt underneath it. Overall great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Coat Bought this jacket for a recent trip to Iceland&Scotland to keep me dry from the rain. For the most part it does that - for shorter periods in the rain. Does feel like the rain is absorbed into the jacket over time. Have this jacket in another color as well - I just wanted black. I'm usually a small in things but have this in medium so it would fit comfortably with larger sweaters underneath. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket This jacket is amazing. I own it in two different colors, black and night shadow. It’s perfect for rainy weather or even just a cooler day. The hood fits well and isn’t too large. I love how the sleeves are adjustable to tighten them up with the strap that Velcro’s.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid if you have a large chest Very pretty color and good quality. I enjoyed taking it out of the package. However, when I zipped it up, it was uncomfortably tight across my chest - and I was wearing only a t-shirt. It looked ridiculous - and I would generally be wearing something thicker underneath. The hips and waist were fine - the jacket needed a few more inches around the chest area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This produce has great features I purchased this jacket for my daughter off at college and she loves it. She told me when she received it in the mail she tried it on and walked around her dorm room with it on for 20-25 minutes and then said she's going to wear it as an everyday jacket. So, I will be buying another one but this time for myself and my younger daughter.
