I love the style of this jacket and its longer length. I also like the fact that it has snaps on the storm flap instead of velcro. However, even with a size up from my normal size it is still too small. I can barely get it to zip, much less layer so it will need to be returned.
I would recommend this product.

The length of this jacket is great. Just a bit below the hips. Nice shaping to give it a more feminine appearance. It does run a bit small.

Unfortunately, I had to return this coat. It was too small in the chest area. It even looked small on the hanger, but when I put it on, it pulled in the chest area and just seems too tight all over. Would love to have kept this coat because it was just what I was looking for.
I would recommend this product.

I love the length and the fit. It's a raincoat but I wear it for more than just rainy days. I liked it so much we got 1 for my Dads wife and she loves it too. But we did have to exchange hers for a larger size. I do think it runs alittle small. It's comfortable and breathes so it doesn't leave you feeling wilted when the sun comes out.
I would recommend this product.

This coat does exactly what it is intended to do--keeps me dry in the rain. The water wicks right off. Plus the hood is great--it stays up and covers your face enough to keep that dry as well. It does run very small (I am usually a solid medium in everything I wear, but the large fits me perfectly), but it fits quite nicely. I love the longer length, and the cut is flattering as well.
I would recommend this product.

I'm a size Small, but I bought a Medium because reviews said it ran small, but I found the medium to be too large. For a fitted, feminine look I would have gotten the small, but I'll keep the medium so I can fit thicker clothing underneath it. But for that reason I think this coat is true to size! Length is great for more rain protection, and hood is a good size. The red pattern and color is just like the picture. Its very light and with no plasticy feel for a raincoat.
I would recommend this product.

I have been searching for a water-repellant windbreak but I am short and the boxy style of most windbreakers just look horrible on me. Shopping at other companies, I have bought and returned many raincoats over the year; but this Columbia raincoat is as close to perfect as you can get. Its like they got in my mind and designed exactly what I have looking for. It keeps the wind and rain off plus is very stylish. The cinching at the back waist gives it just enough shape to make it look almost dressy. Loved the color (I got the red) and what girl doesn't need a red raincoat. This was my best purchase and would strongly recommend it to others.
I would recommend this product.

I'd been looking all over for an affordable light-weight waterproof and breathable jacket. I found it in this Columbia jacket. I bought this to wear as a shell over a fleece jacket when the weather's cool or just alone when it's warmer. I love that it is a bit longer than many other similar jackets and that it has a double-zipper up the front and pockets with zippers. This jacket is so popular that I had to order it directly from Columbia -- it was sold out in the retail stores near me.
I would recommend this product.

this coat is really cute. modern fit. not a straight boxy coat. i am 5'8, about 140 and ordered a size large. fit perfect. this is a true rain coat, not really a warm coat but very cute and functional for rainy days or evening that are a bit chilly where you just want something to cover you.
I would recommend this product.

I had been looking all over for a light weight rain jacket that was functional, would hold up against the rain very well and was comfortable & good looking. I walk to and from most of where I need to go in the city so these things were important to me. So far I love this rain jacket! I took note of the many reviews that advised to order a size up from your usual size and the jacket fits great! There's a little extra room to wear a fleece layer underneath in the cooler weather.
I would recommend this product.

holy moly this is exactly what I've been looking for! It's supremely waterproof, well fitted, light, comfortable & flattering. The length is perfect for helping to protect the lower half in downpours... the slight A-cut of the jacket is flattering at the waist and also directs water runoff out and away from you. The hood is also well fitted, which is great because many rain jackets have hoods are too large and floppy. It stays put. It also has a look that could be deciphered as hip instead of sporty, if you're looking for a great functional background piece that doesn't scream "I'm sporty yo!". I'm 5'6" 140 lbs and the medium fits perfectly with enough wiggle room to be active or ride a bike in. Great jacket! Make it in more colors please!
I would recommend this product.

Great weight, great rain proofing, love that it has form. VERY glad I'd read reviews about its sizing because it does run very small. Don't feel bad about ordering a large or extra large even if you've never done that in your life.

I bought this jacket for an autumn trip to the UK and couldn't have been happier. It kept me dry and helped to cut down on the wind, as well. I normally wear XS or S in clothing but the S bunched a little in the back so I went with the M to have room underneath for layers. I couldn't be happier with this jacket!
I would recommend this product.
