This is a nice spring/rain jacket. I finally found a jacket with sleeves are long enough. The only thing is that it is really tight in the shoulders. Based on the ratings I ordered a size up and it is still tight.
I would recommend this product.

I'm getting ready for a trip to several northern countries in Europe, and was looking for a jacket that was not too heavy, but that could provide wind-breaking/warmth, if needed. After reading other reviews I bought a 3X, thinking that should work. But I could barely get this jacket on because this jacket is cut so small in the shoulders. Columbia needs to do something about its designs for plus sized jackets/coats if it plans to continue to serve this customer base. Very disappointed in this jacket. I had to send it back, at my own expense.
I do not recommend this product.

Quality is excellect. Size seemed as expected with one exception. Sleeves in shoulder/underarm area are a little tight, as it would be hard to wear a sweatshirt under the jacket.
I would recommend this product.

overall this is a very well made jacket, however why is the hood so small? I'm sure you're here to purchase a nice lite jacket to keep you dry, it will do that, unless you have thick hair! The hood on this jacket is incredibly small and doesn't even cover my whole head. So in return my bangs get wet.
I would recommend this product.

The jacket is very good quality and nice and light. The sizing is frustrating because of how small it runs. I ordered a 3X, and my husband got a similar jacket that was an XL. We tried on both jackets and found that the women's 3X was only slightly bigger than the men's XL.
I would recommend this product.

I found this coat to be pretty much true to size, with the exception that the upper arms felt a little snug. This is a good spring/summer rain coat option, lightweight.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this as outerwear for over-top layers on a 2 week trek over China. It performed perfectly. It was the right weight, waterproof and breathable as advertised. I wasn't sure I would like the non-detachable hood but it never bothered me and was nice to have in a mist or drizzle.
I would recommend this product.

Love the H2O and wind protection. Wish the arms were not so tight. I will not be able to wear a fleece underneath when it is cold and wet.

I typically order a 2x in my coats and they fit fine but following the reviews I up my purchase size to a 3x. Gorgeous color, loose fit around waist but snug fit around arms near the shoulders.

I had a jacket similar to this in black and have absolutely loved it. Wore it in Kauii on a Kodiak boat with sea spray and stayed dry and comfortable the whole time. I was so excited that the jacket came in this beautiful color. I have received so many compliments on this jacket already. It is light and breathable yet supremely water proof. I normally wear a large but I don't like my jackets to fit snug (and I have a large chest) which normally I would go up to an XL but I know these do run a bit small. I am very happy with the way it fits in this size.
I would recommend this product.

I sooo wanted to like this jacket but have decided to return. The color was great and with the darker panels on the sides was very figure flattering. However it was very small in the shoulder/underarm area and uncomfortable. It seems as the lining is bigger than the jacket and felt bunched up under the arms. Turned it inside out and it felt much better but you can't wear it that way :)
I do not recommend this product.

Bought this for my Disney world trip in a couple of weeks. I've worn it already since living in Seattle, you will need this jacket. I really like the fact it does repel the rain, and the webbing inside keeps you dry and comfortable.

Great jacket! I read other reviews that advised to size up because the sleeves are cut weirdly and I'm glad I did size up! I went up 1 size and it's too big in the body but the sleeves are short and narrow. Can't imagine what it would be like if I ordered my exact size!
I would recommend this product.
