Women's Prodesse™ Jacket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Raincoat for both travel and home WONDERFUL raincoat! I've used it on two trips and at home for shopping or going out. Not only has it kept me dry, it also works great as a windbreaker. Precisely the multi-purpose coat I was looking for. I have also received many compliments on the style. As with most of my coats, especially dual purpose, I always buy 1 - 2 sizes larger so that I can layer underneath. This is particularly important on trips, when luggage space is a concern. I was ready to buy another one but it had sold out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Prodesse Jacket The construction and fabric quality are very high. The styling is really nice. The jacket and colors look exactly like the website photo. I ordered a small because that's typically my clothing size, and it fits nicely with room for layers underneath like a vest or sweater for cold weather activities. A really nice feature is the hood styling is such that the hood does not weigh on top of your head. If you've ever had a raincoat that does this, you know what I mean. It's a bit roomier in the hip area than I need, but acceptable. The sleeves are very long; they rest about 4 inches below my wrist-bone when my arms are down at my sides; I am 5'3" in height. There is an adjustable cuff tab, but there are two snaps for this adjustment, and my wrist could use several more snaps set much further apart. It's not a deal-breaker, I'm not going to return it because of this; I will probably make the cuff tab shorter by sewing it and it will work much better for me. Overall I'm very happy with the jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Armholes too small This is a coat that is intended to fit over other clothes. The armholes should be cut to be loose, as most coats and jackets are (other brands). Although I normally wear a Small, I ordered a Medium, and the armholes are still too small. They are cut as if it were to be worn as a snug fitting shirt. Same issue for another jacket I bought in a Large, and returned. Columbia needs to take a serious look at this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too noisy I was hoping this product was a little more like my Omni-shield jacket which made very little noise - I guess that's what Omni-tech means: waterproof=noisy? It's just a little too noisy for me (crinkly when I move). Also the color looked more brown online, but in person it's actually purple-ish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I have been looking for a longer, waterproof, jacket that was still stylish and this definitely fits the bill! I walk to work, so having the length is important to me in not appearing in the office like a drowned rat. I don't get too hot in this, it doesn't "sweat" inside like some waterproof jackets do - great breathability. Runs a tad big, but that will be perfect for layering as it gets colder! I only wish that it was slightly vented at the bottom in the back, it would help the fit for the more "bootylicious" ladies. For reference: I am 5'7", 34DDD, size 8 and purchased a Medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket I have been looking for a good rain jacket that doesn't make me sweat and get sticky on the inside. This jacket is perfect. I feel like the jacket runs a tiny bit large but that is okay with me because when rain jackets are too tight you can't wear anything underneath, I actually prefer it to be slightly larger. I was up in Rocky Mountain National Park this past weekend and it rained a lot and I got great use out of this jacket and it kept me perfectly warm and dry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Styled Rain Jacket I'm one that definitely needs a rain jacket for work and therefore don't want it to look 'outdoorsy' when I have to go to meetings and such. I've been trying to replace my current one for years and never found the right one until I found this jacket! It's a perfect rain/wind jacket that can go with your work clothes! [or just everyday outfits]. It does run large. I'm a bit chesty so I noramlly order a Large but returned for a Medium. I ordered my hiking rain jacket in a Large and so I did this one too. I ended up returning it for Medium and can still fit multiple layers [thick sweatshirts] under it! It also has zippered side pockets + top velcro pockets on the front which are big + perfect for stashing gloves, phones, wallets, keys, basically everything you need to not get wet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Jacket I searched all over for the perfect rain jacket and I found it in the Prodesse Jacket. It's long and has large pockets so I can store everything in them without having to carry a purse. It has a bonus inside zippered pocket where I keep cash and additional zippered pockets on the sides of the main pockets which is great for any extra storage needed. It's perfect for Seattle's rain and I've received several compliments on it since I've bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minimalist and cool This jacket has a slightly oversized cut that is a nod to retro rain jackets, but with a nice, understated look that is somehow very up-to-date. It is great for people who want a quality Columbia product without super-obvious branding.
