My review is just after one rain and it performed as advertised. This was exactly what I was looking for. And the packable feature is very convenient.
I would recommend this product.

It is a great rain Jacket. I didn't give 5 stars because I don't like the Velcro.

I received my jacket in just a couple of days and immediately started wearing it! I have been walking a lot for fitness this spring. I got caught in a rain shower, and stayed dry! It lives up to its claim to be waterproof, and is great to wear other times too. I only wish you had the light blue one in stock when I bought it, I would have preferred that color.
I would recommend this product.

I think the jackets are a little pricey but overall a very nice lightweight spring jacket. Keeps you dry and warm. For cooler days you can layer with a lightweight jacket, so buy a size larger because it runs a little small. The sleeves are nice and long and adjustable with Velcro; which is very nice since I'm tall. I usually buy coats/jackets a larger size to accomadate for my heights, so they are a little longer. I would love to see a talls collection!! I would definitely recommend this jacket!
Columbia, how about signing up with retail me not?

I wasn't sure how it was going to look in person but it was great, it's lightweight. The hood has a little part that you can pull to make it tighter on the inside, and when you stuff the jacket into the pocket it has a zipper so you can close it. The jacket fits me just right, I live in a climate where it doesn't get cold so it's not necessary to layer but it's probably better if you buy a size up if you need to layer. It rains often in Miami so this is a great purchase. I'm 5'0, 129 lbs and it fits just right.
I would recommend this product.

I have used this jacket 8 times already since I purchased it and love it. It's light-weight. Looks great and keeps you dry. I ordered it in a Medium and it fits great. Also, the product shipped very quickly. A definite plus in my book! I would definitely recommend it!

Debated over a medium or large as I usually wear a medium or size 8...I went with the large because I'm 5'10" and have extremely long arms.
I decided on a large, should I want to wear a sweatshirt or something underneath and it fit perfectly! The arms were just long enough to make it to my wrists. I took it with me on a lovely spring hike just last week--while the base way warm, the summit was freezing and crazy windy! The jacket protected me from the cutting cold wind and the snow/melting ice I encountered.
Love this jacket!
I would recommend this product.

I have the purple one and it is great! It protects me in the rain and is very fitting. I love this product, but I have one question, is the white one see through when wet? My daughter really wants this one, but I don't want it to be see through.
Thanks! Olivia

I bought this for a June trip to the Northwest US. We got lots of rain (and even snow!) and this jacket was perfect. I coupled with a fleece zip up on colder days and it was a great combo for staying warm and dry (and I'm a Floridian and so a wimp about being cold).
Fast forward 6 months later and I wore it on a very rainy visit to Universal Studios in Orlando with just a tshirt underneath (it was probably in the 50s at the time). Very versatile--you can use in all sorts of climates with proper layering.
I would recommend this product.

This rain jacket is the perfect fit, for me. I am 5'2", and wear size small or medium, or in number size, pants size 8. What I'm trying to say, is this jacket, which comes down below the hips, fits well, since I have hips. It's not tight around the hip area. I also found it to be light weight, and perfect for summer rain....and Waterproof, it keeps me DRY! I have found so many rain jackets don't come with hoods -perhaps the manufacturers do that intentionally so the consumer purchases umbrellas and hats-. I prefer a hood on my rain jacket. I also find many rain jackets to be "water resistant", which doesn't keep me dry in a downpour. The only thing I found that needs improvement, is having directions included with jacket, on how to pack this "packable" jacket into it's own pocket. I had a hard time figuring it out, and had to resort to You-Tube to find a "How-To" video. Other than that, this jacket is perfect. I purchased the Hibiscus red, and it's bright and very pretty.
I would recommend this product.

So what size did you end up getting this jacket in such that it wasn't tight around your hips? Would you say it is a "fitted" look?

First off, I have not used this jacket yet so I can only speak to the fit and the quality of the rain jacket. I got the red jacket and love the color. I got the size I normally wear and it fit perfect. I am tall and was happy that the sleeves were long enough. I have my fingers crossed when it rains and I have a chance to try it out it will definitely repel the rain 100%.
I would recommend this product.

Doesn't rain often here but when it does I really need this jacket. Exchanged the medium for a large. I'm 5'7" 138 pounds. The medium was a little confining and not appropriate for layering. The large fit just right. Love the navy/white contrast.

Sizing and styling is basic but nice. Hood is sized appropriately. It is fitted enough to look feminine but large enough I can fit a layer or two underneath if needed. I was worried it might be too snug but I ordered my normal size and it was perfect.
Lightweight and packs fairly small but I keep it folded in my car for emergencies. I picked up this jacket on sale- and its still a little pricey for what it is but its classic-looking and will last.
I love the hibiscus color- its a bright salmon/poppy color- not quite red, not quite pink.
I would recommend this product.

I needed a rain/wind jacket for camping and hiking. I read other reviews, and ordered two sizes larger than my size. It was perfect, and I love it. It is well made, and I love the velcro tightener on the cuffs. It is stylish enough to wear for other everyday outdoor activities also.
I would recommend this product.
