I have trouble with fit being tall and large- but this is great. The length goes over my bottom. It has snaps and a two way zipper. There is also an inside pocket. A hood that is just the right size. I bought the Grill color which is great- goes with most things. Now I am looking to buy the red so people can see me when I am walking the hills.
I would recommend this product.

I really like the longer length and originally bought the grill color, which is a nice charcoal color, but the zipper stuck, so I exchanged it and they had the Burnt Henna Lattic print available in my size so I got that instead and love it. Really vibrant color picks me up on a rainy day...which we have a lot of here in Portland =). Well constructed and great fit.
I would recommend this product.

This is a very nice jacket, but the fit is a bit off. I ordered a 3X. I usually wear a 2X in most clothing. I was able to zip the jacket, but didn't have much wiggle room. The sleeves were also very tight on my upper arms.
I also didn't care much for the color when I received it. I ordered the Grill expecting a nice gray. The color is more of a dirty gray. Wish I had ordered the black instead.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for an upcoming trip to Paris, France where it rains a lot so I haven't worn it yet. However, it fits great, has enough length and looks quite smart. I think I will be really happy with it.

I ordered this rain coat for a trip to Switzerland in September. As usual with Columbia, it arrived within 2 days! I love it. The weight is perfect, the fit is excellent, and it looks sharp. The only issue is, the sleeves are a bit long...same problem I've had with other Columbia products.
I would recommend this product.

Really like this jacket. I don't think it runs small at all. I got a 1X and I normally would wear a 2X. It fit fine.I like the longer length. The jacket is actually a little heavier than I expected it to be. I thought it would be really thin.
I would recommend this product.

the only thing is that you are correct when saying that the product runs a little smaller - love the coat, lightweight enough not to be to hot and still keeps you warm and dry -- my last coat was from Columbia and loved it, had for several years so had to turn it into my work coat.
I would recommend this product.

The coat seemed to lack the quality I've experienced with Columbia in the past. For example the hood is attached. The coat seemed exceptionally flimsy. I did like the fact that the coat was longer than many I've seen. I don't mind paying more for quality. I was very disappointed and I have returned the coat.
I do not recommend this product.

This coat, especially in the upper arm, runs small. I normally wear a 1x or 2x, depending on the style of the garment. With this coat I definitely need a 3x if I ever want to wear clothes under it and move comfortably. I am returning it with the hope there is a 3x available. Since I haven't worn it in the rain, I cannot attest to its waterproof feature; I am relying on the reliable name of "Columbia".
I would recommend this product.

I recently purchased this coat to use for my daily walks when it rains and for an upcoming trip to the UK. I have family living in Scotland and they recommend leaving the umbrella at home and bring a waterproof coat instead. I spent a great deal of time researching coats and this was the best choice and price for me. The Inkling print is pretty, a true navy and will go nicely with my blue wellies!
I would recommend this product.

I wanted a nice rain jacket with a hood. I like that the jacket is long, so it keeps me covered better in the rain. I bought it a little big, so I could use it in the winter with a sweater underneath and in the other seasons without. I'm very happy with my purchase.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is perfect for rain and really keeps you dry. It's not a super warm coat but it works if you layer because there's a little wiggle room. I did go a size up though, if I had gotten a 1X it wouldn't have fit my shoulders. The design is a bit awkward, the back poofs out a bit on me, but maybe that's just me. Overall, it's a really great jacket that'll get the job done leaving you free to splash around a little.
I would recommend this product.

I really like this jacket - it is a little large, but that is my own fault I read the reviews that stated the arms ran small, so I ordered a size up. Mistake on my part - I would say it is true to size. Everything else is great!

I ordered this jacket before a spring trip where I needed one jacket to span temps from the high 30s to low 60s (and possible rain). Here's what I like:
1. It's roomy enough to wear layers underneath.
2. For packing purposes, it squashes down into an unbelievably small space and looks fine when you take it out.
3. The side pockets zip, which is great for holding keys, gloves, etc. without fear of losing them.
4. The length provides more coverage in case of rain than many jackets, but without the bulk of a trench coat.
5. It's warmer than it looks if you are walking around a lot.
My one complaint is that the zipper is hard to work. Despite more than 30 years of independent zipper experience, I struggle with it every time. When I am in a hurry, I just do the snaps.
Based on the size guide and my hip measurement of 48, I originally ordered a 2X and was swimming in it. I returned the 2X for a 1X, and the 1X works well, even with a fairly bulky sweater underneath.

This coat is exactly what I was looking for. The day I got it we had torrential rain and I wore it and it kept me dry. It is a lightweight and breathable coat. The back is slightly longer and I love the fact that it covers down to my knees. Perfect for warm weather but could wear layers with it for extra warmth if there is a cool rain out there.
I would recommend this product.

This is just your typical Mom raincoat with those great Columbia bells and whistles. It is a big through the body, but a little tight around the arms, typical problem for me. It bells out a little on the bottom- especially in front (yuck) which was almost enough for me to send it back. I have had a ton of trouble finding a raincoat this season and this was the best that I have found. I got the black and blue print, which is pretty without being IN YOUR FACE bold. the sleeves are plenty long and have adjustable straps. It's not to heavy, perfect for spring/fall, and the hood is adjustable and big enough for a pony tail or bun. the two way zipper sticks a bit. but it's a nice feature.
I would recommend this product.

Great for travel, because it's so lightweight. Gave 4 Stars because Sleeve length is a little long, but better than too short. Also, upper arm is a little snug, not roomy enough to comfortably wear a thicker sweater underneath for layering. Love that the hood fits snuggly to keep you protected and is adjustable and fantastic that the front pockets have zippers! Good thinking, Columbia!
