Women's Pardon My Trench™ Rain Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This fits perfectly! I'm a taller plus sized woman. I first bought this coat in an XL. It was too snug in the bust. So I decided to try a 1X. I can layer and still have bathing room. Nori is a lovely olive green. I love the sleeve snaps because I have slim arms. The belt is secure and long enough to tie! I wish this jacket came in beige or tan. Another minor quirk are the zippers, they are a bit stiff. If you're busty or apple shaped I would go for the 1X instead of the XL. I'm seriously considering getting this in black!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked it so much I bought it in 2 colors! I first bought this coat in the bright blue to wear while hiking in Colorado in the spring when there was still snow in the mountains and it would rain frequently throughout the day. I bought 1 size up from what I normally wear so that I could get a fleece and a few layers under it. The coat protected me from the rain but it also breathed quite well while I was actively hiking up the mountains. It was long enough to cover ones behind well but not so long that it impeded my walking. I liked the snaps on the sleeves to allow for looser or tighter fitting as needed on the wrists. The sewn on belt on the back not only looks nice and tailored but is also functional as I did not have to worry about the belt sliding or coming off when not tied. However, I could tie it in the front to keep the fit snug or loose. It has really big front pockets that I love! You can easily get a hat and gloves in there or a map and phone, small snacks even, and the pockets zip shut so no potential for things to fall out. The attached hood is big enough that you can also wear a hat under it and it has the velcro tap at the back of the hood so that you adjust how low the hood goes over your forehead so that you can pull it up out of your eyes. Very important feature for comfort and safety for me. It also snaps up at the neck nicely for warmth and wind protection. The zippers worked very smoothly also. I loved this jacket so much that I bought it in black to take to Europe this fall as I know it will look nice, be very functional and allow me to layer underneath. If you do not need to layer underneath then buy your regular size and it will fit just fine w/ one layer of clothing under it. I normally wear a 14-16 or XL, but I bought the 1X for more room to layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this for our upcoming trip to Iceland. I wear anywhere between a 14-18 but have a large butt and wear a 38DDD, I have an hourglass shape so I went ahead and ordered the 2X. Fits great with the cinch waist, will be good for layering. Love the style, not your basic rain jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile but not so stylish This is the perfect rain wear if you are an avid walker like I am. It both snaps and zips in front which is a favorite feature for a jacket when you are on the go. The sleeves are adjustable with a snap feature. My only complaint is that it is very full from the waist down and with the belt I look chunkier than normal. It could have been more tapered. Yes, it is a vanity reason, but overall I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far... I went by measurements and this coat fit perfectly. I haven’t had a chance to see how it does with the elements, but I like the fit and look. I wanted a rain coat that I could wear with dresses but not too formal. This works for that. When I have worn it in the rain I may add another star. Also, the hood covers my glasses, which in the rain is a huge plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! Being a tall plus sized woman it's hard to find jackets that fit! This one is perfect! Not only is the tie waist an added piece of sophistication, but it really makes the coat look nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Soaking Wet This is a very stylish, well fitting jacket. I bought it in the dead of Minnesota winter because it was on sale and I had credits to use and knew I needed a rain jacket for the non-winter season. I have now worn it a total of 4 times. 3 of those were non-rain days but it provided protection from the wind and I loved it. Today I was out in a light rain for 30 minutes. I am soaking wet. I would NOT advertise this as a rain jacket. Unfortunately, it's been more than 60 days since I purchased online and it is not eligible for return. If you want a nice looking windbreaker, this is it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No wet clothes I love this jacket. I got the Red Camilla in size 2x. It is true to size. I am obsessed with the color. Staying dry in the rain is fashion, fun and functionality in this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice light rain jacket I ordered a 2X in the Jewel (turquoise) color and I love it. It fits very well. I find that I do not need to use the belt...I just left it as I received it from Columbia, which is in a neat bow in the back. The length is perfect for me. I am 5'8" and the hem hits mid-thigh. The front zip pockets are perfect. They are big enough to put my hands in even with my keys and phone in them (with room to boot) and deep enough that nothing falls out of them when I sit down. I have not tried it in the rain yet. To me, the material seems like it will repel rain quite well. I am glad that the front of the jacket has snaps as well as at the wrists. My 2 other Columbia coats have velcro and it drives me bonkers. LOL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plus comfort Very difficult to find extended sizes in store, limited styles online. This is my favorite all purpose rain jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the spring showers headed our way!! I purchased this in the Red Camellia to wear on rainy days (especially when working). I did order a size up because I wanted to be able to fit sweatshirts underneath. I work for the USPS and bundling up - especially here on Cape Cod - is essential. The Red Camellia is a fun color and it looks great with my polka dot rain boots. The hood closes nicely to help with the wind. The belt makes the trench coat style especially flattering. The sleeves are adjustable around your wrist to keep your arms dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Perfect! This coat is not only beautifully made, but the colors are to die for! I purchased the yellow ray color and it just makes me feel so good and happy inside! Funny how a little ray of sunshine does that for us! I am very very pleased with my purchase, and I HIGHLY recommend this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adorable jacket-get soaked I absolutely adore this jacket--it is so cute and flattering. However, it is water repellent not waterproof and EVERY TIME I wear it I get soaked through. A rain jacket that isn't waterproof is not useful. It breaks my heart, because this jacket is so darn cute, but it is unusable. Seriously, I get soaked every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mild Weather Raincoat This raincoat is super light to wear and effective. I loved how secure one can make the coat with all the buttons, zipper and the tie for the hoodie. This coat can handle light and heavy rain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight in the shoulders. I ordered my mom a 2x according to the size chart. I would say this jacket runs a little small. It was tight in the shoulders and is shorter than I thought it would be. Also, the color was more red than what the picture depicts--wasn't a big deal, but worth noting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Singing in the Rain This trench is flattering on, while it keeps me dry and comfy in heavy rain. The cut allows excellent mobility and function. Casual, yet looks a little dressier than most rain gear. Versatile light weight, perfect for warmer rainy days or to wear layers beneath in cooler temps with its generous fit, but not cumbersome. Rolls up nice and compact to stow in my bag when not needed. Truly great value for durable fabric, quality craftsmanship and smart looking fashion savvy. I now own 3; they're THAT GOOD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to Size After reading the reviews I had some concerns about the size as they stated it runs larger. However, this jacket is very true to size. I didn't size up or down and it fits well. It's not overly loose for many items underneath, so I would order the size you think you need.
Date published: 2017-08-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice! I bought this coat for an upcoming trip to Ireland and overall it's a very nice coat. The only thing I would change is the belt-It's completely attached to the waist and you cannot remove it. I would have liked it more if it gave you the option to wear without the belt, but overall I'm happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great style but lacks ventilation I bought this jacket for a 3 week trip to Iceland and Northern Europe this summer. This worked well in the rain, mist and cooler windy days. It kept the chill out and repelled water well. This is a light weight jacket that really held up well for traveling which often involved getting shoved into a backpack, suitcase, day bag, locker, etc. I really like the attached belt, but wish the straps were just a bit longer. I bought a size larger than I normally wear so I could have 2-3 light layers underneath it without it being too bulky or tight. My only complaint is that this design of this jacket doesn't have enough ventilation in it and the entire inside of the jacket was often wet from condensation. Seriously, the entire lining was SOAKING WET to the point that my clothes were damp too. I had to go to the museum and restaurant bathrooms to wipe down the inside of my coat with paper towels and use the hand dryers to dry out my clothes. I could understand if we were hiking or doing something strenuous, but we were just walking around the city or riding on the bus/tram. As much as I like the style and functionality of this jacket, I think it will need to be returned. I just can't deal with the interior moisture issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Jacket for Many Occasions I bought this as a sports jacket, but find that it is the perfect one for folding up and dragging around in case of wind or rain. I bought it sized generously so I could wear a wool jacket or quilted vest underneath. The 2-way zipper, vented back yoke, hood, and breathable water-proof fabric were that interested me in this jacket.
Date published: 2017-04-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than the other reviews made me think For a similar price, it is difficult to find a good quality plus size rain jacket. I decided to try this one for its reasonable price point compared to the competitors. I was worried after reading the other reviews, but as a savvy outdoors-woman, I knew this was a SHELL coat, which means that if you don't layer under it, you may get the sensation of cold/wet transfer to your skin. Overall, water beads on the surface of this coat and doesn't appear to soak through, although I haven't yet tried it in prolonged wet weather. The zipper on mine was perfectly good (some reviewers thought it was hard to do up, but it's really not) and the double zipper is great for undoing from the bottom up to allow for more comfortable wear while sitting (in a car, for example) or to keep the coat unzipped but not windblown. The size was a bit larger than I anticipated (2X fit me easily with room for a fairly bulky sweater underneath - I wear a size 20 top and bottom). And I had actually looked at the sizing measurements and measured myself. I was on the cusp of 1X and 2X so I ordered the larger size to allow for a sweater layer for cooler weather. If I intend to be out in the rain for a very prolonged time, I might toss a small poncho in my bag for extra protection, but again, I haven't yet tried this coat out in the pouring rain for very long. The back vent is fantastic for allowing air flow - although armpit vents would be make this a better hiking coat. I love the colour (red/coral) and the waistbelt helps define my waist instead of normal plus size coats which just hang and make me look round. Overall - a very good review. I can't wait to bring this on my trip to Scotland this summer where it will be truly battle tested in the rain and I will post a follow up review after standing out in some pouring rain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shape, not breathable The shape is great and has a nice professional and feminine cut. It is nice and lightweight but I really wish it was fully lined like the Arcadia. It is not breathable and you end up pretty damp inside if you do any sort of physical activity. Great for wearing to work, but definitely a no go for hiking. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Cute I've only just got this but I love it. It fits perfectly. The style is cute and flattering. It is light weight but not cheap feeling in anyway. We'll see how it does in heavy rain, but so far it is just what I wanted!
Date published: 2017-03-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, feminine, nice color This had a lot of the features I was looking for. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it doesn't have underarm air holes or back ventilation. I like it's lightweight portability, practical color and feminine length and belt to accent waistline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but zipper doesn't work well I really liked this jacket when I saw it in the store but the zipper was incredibly hard to get going and there was only one left in my size. So, I ordered it online, but have the same problem. Luckily there are snaps to use instead. Rest of the jacket is really good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Color was as expected though Even though the trench rain jacket didn't fit me properly, it's still a nice jacket & seems to block out the elements. The sleeves were a little short & I don't have hips so I looked nothing near the model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Versatile Rain Jacket I loved this jacket, I felt that it was a little large though. It is a great rain jacket for Spring/Summer. Mine seemed to be a bit bigger than I was expecting but because it is a light rain jacket, it will work with a sweater underneath. My only complaint is that the belt tends to untie a decent amount
Date published: 2016-04-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Basic I wanted a light jacket for the spring so I ordered this. Rec'd it and yes it's light - I could probably fold it up and put it in my purse if I didn't need to wear it. I also like that it's a longer jacket and covers my behind. What I don't like: the waist tie is attached to the jacket so I looks funny if not tied. The cuffs have buttons and even the tightest adjustment is too wide and still slips my entire hand through it. Other than that, it's okay for what I need. It's not a bad jacket but I can't recommend it if I'm not totally satisfied with it myself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Water Resistant I bought this knowing full-well that it was just a shell. All I wanted was something water resistant. I wore this in a light rain and my arms were soaked. Did it do a better job than a cotton sweatshirt? Yes. Did it do the job I expected of a trench coat with 'rain' in it's name? Absolutely not. Returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect rain jacket and day layer I'm obsessed with this jacket. The length is great, long enough to cover your bottom in the back and all necessary parts in the front. The waist belt makes for a feminine shape, but the jacket is casual for running around in tennis shoes. The quality is great, and the jacket is thin and unlined which works well for rain without the cold. It was the ideal top layer while hiking in the PNW last week. I highly recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from rain jacket ran a bit larger than i expected, and the material was a lot stiffer than i was looking for. it was sort of an uncomfortable fabric, but i suppose it would be light and useful if you were out in the pouring rain. ultimately i returned this product, but i'm sure it would work well as a rain coat, just not what i was looking for particularly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good rain jacket Bought for my mom. Pictures looked a lot better online. Looked thicker than it actually was. But if used just as a outer rain jacket it does the job. Material was really thin.
