Customer reviews for Columbia Women’s Arcadia Rain™ Jacket

Columbia Women’s Arcadia Rain™ Jacket

Our popular Kona jacket gets a new name and a new look for spring. All the same weather-ready elements remain, like waterproof construction, an adjustable storm hood, and drawcord adjustable hem to block wind and rain.

I like the color and the pockets. I wear a medium but I decided to get a large and I'm glad I did. The jacket does not keep you warm as much as I thought so I would recommend wearing with hooded/sweatshirt.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is nice and lightweight and would be ideal for backpacking--- if it just had a packable pocket. Was dissappointed that it did not have this feature. I also would recommend buying a size up as this runs small for an outer layer. I wish I would have bought a size bigger for added length as well. I can fit a hoodie under mine but its just long enough to cover my torso. I prefer rain jackets to be longer to help cover at least part of my backside. It would have been nice if it would have at least been long enough to cover the jacket I was wearing underneath it. It would also have been nice to have longer sleeves so as to keep my hands from getting freezing (I like to pull them up into my jacket. I did end up buying a size bigger than my chest/waist measurements-- and the bust was plenty big it just needed to be longer. This jacket will probably work great for people that aren't tall and skinny. I was also bummed that the cinch up things for the waist are made of a rubbery material and dont keep it cinched up well at all! The hood ones are a little better and it stays cinched up for the most part. Also the hood isn't very deep... so if you have a bun or a ponytail its hard to keep the hood far enough forward to be effective. This jacket is def. Columbias very basic rain jacket.
I do not recommend this product.

Really pleased with the look and fit of this jacket. I like its longer length as it gives more warmth and more protection. Based on reviews, I chose a medium. I can wear turtleneck and fleece under it comfortably. I like the use of velcro on sleeves and on front zipper packet. I wore another Columbia Crest while traveling in Antarctica--wish I had this one then, but I bought it after the trip. With layering, I would have been comfortably warm on deck.
Haven't tested the water repelling feature yet, as it hasn't rained hard in Florida recently. I hope it is as good for that feature as for the others.
I would recommend this product.

I needed a good hooded jacket to use when walking the dog in the rain and this fits the purpose fine. It is completely waterproof. I got the White-Niagra and it is really classy looking. If the weather is cold you need to add an extra layer under it (it is not for use as a cold-weather jacket alone) but there is plenty of room to add a sweater and you are toasty warm. As recommended by the manufacturer, I ordered a size larger than normal and it fits fine.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket fits great. I purchased the small, I am 5'2" and 118lbs. The jackets has an inner zippered pocket, which is great. The waist and sleeves both have velcro to tighten. The only thing I don't like is the hood. At least for my head, I wish it was slightly larger. Otherwise, it is a great quality and good looking rain jacket.
I would recommend this product.

Living in Portland I'm no stranger to the rain, this jacket keeps me dry all day running around Portland State Campus. The sleeves are long but that worked great for me because I always have problems finding jackets with sleeves long enough for my arms. Overall very pleased and happy with my purchase!
I would recommend this product.

Best jacket for my environment. I'm very picky about my coats, it doesn't get very cold in my region so I usually burn up in coats. This jacket keeps the wind at bay and keeps me at a reasonable temperature. It keeps me dry and the size is just right. I can fit a sweater under it for added warmth. Great product!
I would recommend this product.

This jacket was purchased as a gift and the person loves it. It has become their main jacket. It breathes, which makes it very comfortable. It is roomy enough for a sweatshirt to go underneath. The drawstrings at the bottom and the cuffs around the wrist are excellent at keeping the wind and rain from coming through. The hood is deep enough to cover the head without blocking vision. I am more than satisfied. I have a few Columbia products and I have not been disappointed. Thank you.
I would recommend this product.

Purchased this for a Christmas gift for my mom. It's somewhat light weight, so on chilly days, you would need to wear something heavier underneath. The medium fit, with a little room to spare. My moms 5'8" wtih a slender build.

I LOVE my Columbia Water Proof jacket. It gave exactly what it promised. It was the perfect fit and is very light weight. I like how there are pockets inside the jacket. I really recommend this jacket to anyone who wants to stay dry in the rain.
