Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flattering fit So far I am pleased with this raincoat, though I have yet to use it in heavy downpour situations. I as someone with long arms, I am happy with how long the sleeves are, and that the jacket is not crinkly or stiff feeling. It has a good style that is somewhat shape flattering due to the design. I originally ordered the medium but returned it for the small which fits perfectly. Overall the jacket is much more lightweight than I imagined, but I can easily fit a hoody under it for added warmth. Only cons- it is more pinkish-orangish-red than true red, and the extremely shiny omni-heat dots on the inside make it look childish or space-suity, in my humble opinion. Wish they were less flashy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVES IT! I purchased this for my daughter who's in college. It's perfect for her campus walks. She loves the fit & feel of the jacket. It's all we were hoping for and more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a nice jacket, but too light for winter This is a really nice jacket - but way too light for winter! There is no fuzzy lining (that I expected, considering all the pictures and descriptions) so the price is a bit too much for the jacket purpose. I'm still deciding if I should keep it or return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, A WATERPROOF Jacket I have been searching and searching for a properly waterproof jacket, and I finally found one. This jacket is lightweight, but still impressively warm thanks to the omni-heat lining. The hood is removable, which is alwaya a nice option. The sleeves run a smidge long, but there is plenty of room to layer underneath on cold days. I've also tried this out in windy conditions and does a great job cutting down on wind effects as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome warm rain jacket! Very lightweight but the reflective lining adds just enough warmth for cooler days. Wouldn't be suitable for harsh winter days unless layered underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Omni-Heat The product is great, super light-weight, but it might be too light-weight. My only concern is that I don't feel like the omni-heat technology really works, I have to layer a bit, I have to put a thick fleece underneath to feel absolutely no cold. I do the love the pockets, they are so warm. Other than that, I love the product, it's stylish and light-weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saving Jacket! I bought this jacket just to have for those cool fall and spring days when there's a chance for rain. I put this jacket to the test while spectating the Ironman in Tempe this past weekend. The weather took a turn for the worse, and it rained all afternoon with temps in the upper 50s. I stayed completely dry and warm all day! I cannot express how amazing this jacket is! The jacket is warm, yet breathable, and is completely waterproof. So glad I made this purchase!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Love the color, has shape to it & good quality. I love the Velcro on the wrists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't like to be cold in the winter! The coat is very nice. It is the new light weight material, not like a heavy winter coat. I will be interested to see if it keeps you as warm as a typical winter coat! I think a good price for the coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice coat The only complaint I can think of is that it runs a little big. Other than that I think this jacket is great for the rainy NW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fit This is a three season jacket for my area and it looks great, is lightweight, and is extremely comfortable.
Date published: 2015-09-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but big I made the mistake of taking into account the other reviews that said it runs small since the fit/size thing columbia provides is not very specific. I'm 1,54cm and 93lbs and the size S is huge for me, even with layers and layers of clothes underneath. I'm very disappointed since in cannot return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Waterproof Shell I just returned from 3 weeks in Alaska and British Columbia where it was windy and wet for most of the trip. This jacket did not disappoint! Not only is it fully waterproof, it has the warm lining, making it much better in cold conditions than a regular lightweight shell. Although it's not as compact as some of the competition (re: Patagonia N2O line), it is a much better product in terms of functionality. I would highly recommend this. Only downside is no internal pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Female fit Very pretty coat, love it but I ordered a medium. I like my clothes fitted but not tight. It was way to big for me. I would buy it again in a smaller size tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This coat is exactly what I've been looking for! It is very light weight yet quite warm and durable. I have stayed warm and dry so far and can't wait to try it out cross country skiing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rain Coat I am smaller so it did fit me odd but once I put my hoodie on under the jacket it was fine. It's not really black it's more or a dark grey. Please wash it before you use it. My coat had a funny smell. Had to wash it 2 times.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sleeves Very Long I liked the jacket but I had to return the size large because the sleeves were much too long. I had gotten a size large although I usually wear a medium because the reviewers said that the jacket ran small. I will say that the jacket is suitable more for Fall or Spring in the colder states.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it !! I've always been a large size but after ordering the jacket in a large and reading the reviews that it runs a size smaller...i was a little sad but after it came and tried it on out fits so perfectly! Even when i pot the interchangeable sweater inside! I love the jacket!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Jacket Everything I heard was correct. Love this Jacket
Date published: 2015-08-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I love this jacket! I normally wear medium but based on reviews I ordered large and it's perfect because I like to layer. The elastic in the back creates a more slender look, which is good. The reflective lining makes the coat warm without weight. Rain runs right off, which is great for Oregon weather. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Believe them when they say it runs a size smaller. Keep that especially in mind if you are buying this to fit over thicker layers because it fits just right over everyday clothes. I personally think this is great for winter in the southern states. Quite warm on it's own, feels great to slide on. Hood is sturdy and well crafted. Definitely keeps the rain off especially at the neck. Easy to move with. This is more for Fall and Spring for a state like Ohio or Colorado. Has a place for a liner to zip in but doesn't come with one... that's my only complaint though. This is a jacket you can hike with but not the rugged work horse you would do forestry in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scotties The jacket proves to be the best for walking the Scotty dogs each morning regardless of the weather. This garment was a replacement for its Columbia Sportswear predecessor which gave good service for close to ten years. We own quite a large collection of C.S. products that we use for both casual and work (I'm in construction), and enjoy good quality and long garment life. Proud they're from Oregon as well, as am I!
