Women's EvaPOURation™ Jacket is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain coat The Evapouration Rain coat is lightweight and compact when folded. A medium fits me perfectly for my size, 5'7" 122 lbs. I love the technology that Columbia used to make this rain coat as the rain beads on the coat and when you shake the wet coat, the water just rolls right off. I appreciate the zippers under the arms to vent the coat and also the roomy zippered pockets for my hands. The coat provides great coverage as it is long enough so that it covers my butt so the rain doesn't roll onto my pants. My daughter also has one and she loves it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket This fits very well except the sleeve is a little long. I like the color. It hasn’t rained yet so have not tested it in the rain yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expecting a little more to it This jacket does repel water. But it’s really thin. I am a bit afraid that it will tear or rip easily. But I have worn it. So I don’t think I can return it. But for its function as a rain coat it will do the job. But it doesn’t really double as another coat nor do I think it will keep you warm on a cold rainy day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another keeper! This is my daughter's second Columbia rain jacket. She has had the other for four years now and STILL loves and wears it. I bought this one because she was drawn to the arm vents -- a nice feature to keep cooler when the weather is wet and muggy. She's delighted with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased for spouse This jacket was the perfect style, fit, and color for my wife. We live on the coast and it's a everyday piece of gear for her. She wears it to work, to the store, and oh yes, for those walks on the beach. It's light but durable! Thank you Columbia, this one will be a mainstay for her everyday affairs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable I ordered Evapouration after standing at an outdoor concert in a downpour and my waterproof coat left me soaked. I love my new coat! Went to another outdoor show, it poured, and I stayed 100% dry! Yay! Great coat. Great value! What more can I say? Been a summer of rainy shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value rain jacket! I got the evapouration jacket on sale and it has definitely proven it's value. Waterproof and lightweight, this jacket is ideal for any outdoor activities. It's also very premium feeling, the materials and zipper are high quality making it feel extremely durable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very oddly sized! Ordered an XL but it's barely a size Large. Though I normally wear a Large, I wanted an XL so I could wear this on a boat over a wet suit. That is impossible. I can barely wear it over a tee shirt! And, the sleeves are so long they cover almost my entire hand! This coat is like a size Large (a tight size Large), with sleeves the length of a size 4X! Very, very disappointed. I'm keeping it only because I love the color and will wear when it rains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As one would hope! It was a replacement jacket after 24 years of similar Columbia jacket - very pleased with updated item

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jane I love this jacket. The hood is adjustable so it doesn't fall over my face and just the right snugness. I already had a chance to wear it in the rain. The length is nice and the zipper opening vents are a nice feature, Folds up nice and not stiff. I definitely made the right choice with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought my second jacket I wear this jacket for cycling. It has always kept me 100% dry in the rain, and is an excellent windbreaker. The underarm zippers help ventilate during strenuous rides. When I lost some weight and my first jacket became too large for me, I bought this jacket again in a smaller size - it had become my favorite. It’s cute enough for routine wear around town, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great raincoat, but don't put in your washer! This raincoat is awesome for travel and super lightweight. However, the instructions for washing say you can put it in your washer on a gentle cycle...not the case for me. I washed my first one on the gentlest cycle my washer can do. It came out with some tears. The best thing to do is hand wash this coat. Luckily, Columbia has fabulous customer service and sent me a replacement! It held up for two weeks travelling in Costa Rica and not only kept me dry, but warm on a particularly cold, rainy boat ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gift for grand=daughter I gave this as a gift to my 20 year old grand-daughter- she liked it a lot and it fit well. She was looking for a lightweight rain jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could use better ventilation My work has me outside for 3-hour chunks every day in all weather conditions, so finding a reliable rain jacket at a good price-point has been an all-consuming task for me. I believe I'm one step closer to the ideal combination of waterproofing and frugality with this jacket. I bought this jacket a couple months ago and have weathered a couple rain events in it and haven't had any issues soaking through yet. October and November thunderstorms will truly put this jacket to the test. The one thing that's mildly disappointing about this jacket is that it doesn't actually ventilate very well. Don't get me wrong, I'm totally in love with the pit-zips, but I do wish that there was mesh to keep them from opening too wide and that there were other ventilation openings. On days when you go back and forth between hiking and standing around, expect to get pretty moist inside this jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product, but not recommended for warm climates My husband and I purchased the male and female versions of this jacket because we needed new rain coats. We liked that it was waterproof, but had vents to prevent overheating. Unfortunately, the jacket doesn't breathe at all even with the vents open. Even though it is waterproof, the inside becomes wet if you do the slightest bit of activity or spend any real time walking around in it. I also find the hood extremely annoying. The string adjustments are not easy to use and it is hard to get the hood to sit in the right place. It's either blocking my face or not covering my head enough. This was a replacement for a sailing jacket I lost which had similar waterproofing technology and vents that wasn't from Columbia. That jacket didn't have this breathability problem, so I'm disappointed in this purchase from Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Rain Jacket This jacket replaced one I had from Columbia Sportswear for more than 8 years. The design is "cleaner" and it has functioned perfectly during our overly rainy, cold winter and now spring. I love the color and the stylish inner, zip-out lining is great for wearing on it's own.
Date published: 2017-03-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT "breathable" This jacket does not let body heat and perspiration escape. In fact, after wearing it, especially in cold weather, it is often much wetter inside than out. A mesh on the inside might help. Very disappointed in this jacket.
Date published: 2017-03-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I live in Hawaii, so was only looking for a light rain jacket to use when walking the dog. This jacket is perfect for that. It is light weight, yet keeps you warm and dry. I like the material, and the pull cords to tighten the hood and waist. I'm not a huge fan of the Velcro on the wrists. I have small wrists and need to tighten them up, so the straps kind of stick out. I was also disappointed that there were no inside pockets. But other than that I am very satisfied with this jacket. I plan on purchasing another.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy I love the look and fit of this jacket and am sure it performs exceptionally well, just like all Columbia gear. However, it is sooo noisy and crinkly and I didn't like the feel of the fabric on my skin. :/
Date published: 2016-11-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect light rain I got this specifically for light rain and around town type of stuff. The fit is great. I love the zipper chest pocket for lip chap or car keys. This is a lot of jacket for the money.
Date published: 2016-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer rain jacket This was just what I was looking for. While the price is quite steep, it has a lot of the features that I just can't do without including zippered armpits, cinch elastics for the waist and hood, and velcro wrist closures. It's thin and lightweight, and does its job. Not to mention the nice color teal (that is not pink!!! thank you Columbia!!) called "Miami" (very fitting!), so nice. I ordered a small (I'm 5'6" and about 130 lbs) which fits well and allows for some layering underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could use inside pockets This coat needs inside pockets. Also, the main front zipper is sticky..could be smoother. I like how it packs inside its own bag. Love the color.
Date published: 2016-08-09
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure it is waterproof I wore this jacket in the rain, and it was wet inside. I wanted to give it another chance, and today I had the chance to wear it in a downpour. The inside was wet. Possibly - just possibly - that was because I didn't put it on until I was already slightly damp, and I did not put up the hood (I wore a large hat) so some rain may have come in the neck. But it seems that the inside was wetter than those things would explain, and my clothes were pretty wet, too. It was not that warm a day, so unless there is absolutely no breathability, I suspect that the jacket is not waterproof. My husband likes his "watertight II", but it only comes in men's sizes. I'm looking for a similar women's jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I love this jacket! It's one of the best purchases I've ever made & I can't wait to give it as a gift this holiday! Would buy again.
Date published: 2015-12-18
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Warm for what I was wanting Ordered this as a gift expecting a typical breathable type rain jacket. The inside liner is rubber which makes it really warm even when its like 70 degrees. The large was also a little small for someone who is 5'8" and average build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Rain Jacket I bought this jacket to replace a similar Columbia jacket that I've been using for 10 years and is just about worn out. I'm what is currently described as a "curvy girl", but I admit it, I'm a petite girl with a big butt! Size 10 pants are a little small on me and size 12 too big. I bought this jacket in a large and the top part is very roomy, but the bottom barely fits, it will be a little tight if I wear layered clothing this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and dry I cannot say enough good things about this jacket. I bought it because I was tired of getting soaked while walking/doing agility with the dog during spring and summer. We live in Germany right now so we get a lot of rain, even in the summer. This is perfect since it is not warm AT ALL. On a chilly day, I can wear a long sleeved t-shirt or thin hoodie under it and on a warm, humid rain day, I can wear it with just a tank top and stay cool and dry. I bet this would even be a good choice for runners since the ventilation really works well. I love the color (geyser) too: happy and highly visible! The pockets are great for dog stuff and keys and the hood has a velcro strip on the back to adjust it so it doesn't fall in my eyes. At $99 it is an investment but it feels very well made and looks like it will last a long time. Well worth the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product runs small Jacket was very tight in bust area. I am size 14 and XL is too small. Fabric is noisy when rubs together. Fabric weight too heavy for humid climates Had to return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waterproof but wasn't breathable I purchased this in Foxglove for a week long walking trip in the English Cotswolds. I wore it occasionally during the trip and on one whole day it rained. While it seemed to keep the rain out - the inside became wet. Just didn't seem to breathe as stated. I wore moisture wicking base layers under. Each time I removed the jacket, the inside seemed as wet as the outside. My clothing however was dry. The hood worked well, but had to purchase a ball cap to keep the brim up. On a prior trip to Alaska I used a much more expensive Columbia jacket that truly was breathable, but was more than 2x the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Jacket I'm a Aquatic Biologist and work outdoors majority of the time. This jacket works great for me when I'm working in the rain. Especially when the temperature is a bit cool.
Date published: 2015-05-06
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not right for me I don't want to be too hard on this jacket because I bought it and returned it and didn't use it in the field. The fit was all wrong. I'm 5'10" 135lbs with long arms and a long torso. To me the sleeves were too short and the shoulders were too narrow. I also thought the jacket was a bit rubbery in texture which was off putting. I didn't use the jacket in the field, but I can't imagine it breaths or does well in hot humid rainy conditions often found in south Florida where I live. This jacket might work for a different body shape and for a different climate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket! Hands down the best rain jacket I've had. The first time I got to use it I was in the middle of a 20 mile canoe trip in a solid Texas downpour and it kept me nice and dry. Just keep in mind that it has no insulation at all; it will keep you dry but you need to layer under it for warmth to make this an all season jacket. On its own it is fabulous for warm weather inundations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket Love this jacket, I wear it to run, hike and bike. This is the perfect jacket for the NW. Light weight, breathable and waterproof. I can' t say enough good things about this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice rain jacket! I love the color, which is very close to my LL Bean Molten Red. I love how this rain jacket has the underarm vents and generous zip pockets. It's bright, high viz, and looks great with my black Columbia rain pants. I typically take a MED in LL Bean jackets, vests, etc. and the MED Columbia also fit me well with room for layers. 5'2", 125 lbs, 34B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great spring/summer jacket This jacket is very breathable and the rain just falls off of the material. I bought the red hibiscus and I love the color! I would say that because it is so breathable, I tend to wear a long sleeve for the spring rains to keep me comfy (hence why I call it for spring/summer use). I wear size large normally and got the jacket in large. I can wear a fleece zip-up under the jacket and it still looks find. The hood fits great with ponytails and keeps my face dry. For improvement of design, I would suggest to alter the zipper so it is easier to use. Currently it tends to get stuck more often than I would desire.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof I was disappointed in this jacket. I was expecting it to be waterproof as described but it was not. When wearing it in the rain, I had constant moisture develop on the inside making me cold and damp. Definitely not worth $99.99. I will stick with Goretex from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teenager Approved Purchased this for my 13 year old daughter. She likes things a little more fitted and this was a perfect fit for her. Excellent for rainy soccer practices and trips to the coast. Breathable too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High-Quality Basic That Does It's Job I was looking for a basic lightweight rain shell with "pit zips" for ventilation while exercising, and this jacket does the trick! I've already used it a couple of times in moderate rain, and it's kept me dry. The zippers near the arm pits allow for good ventilation, and the hood keeps me dry without getting in the way. I also like that the sleeves are long enough (I am 5'10" and often have a problem with too-short sleeves). The only suggestions I would have to make this jacket better are a smoother zipper (the sealing material makes it a little hard to zip up), and a hanging loop on the inside (there is currently one on the outside).
