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.
I would recommend this product.

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.

Nice jacket, wanted something light weight Nd this is perfect. I had to order a 2x though to get the right fit and I normally would wear an XL or 1x in other brands, so runs a bit small.

This is a great, completely waterproof, raincoat. I got the Groovy Pink color - which is really like a dark fushia - very pretty on a dreary rainy day.
I wish this jacket was slightly longer - another inch or 2 would make a big difference.
I found the jacket to be slightly small for its size - and I bought 1 size up from what I usually buy - when I tried to wear it with a long sleeve shirt and sweater underneath, the shoulder area and arms were too tight. This is unfortunate as it offers no warmth on its own.
Overall I really like it though.
I would recommend this product.

I LOVE THIS JACKET ONLINE SO DECIDED TO ORDER THE PRODUCT. I READ SOME REVIEW ON THE PRODUCT BEFORE ORDERING. IT FIT VERY SMALL. THE MATERIAL IS EXTREMELY LIGHT AND THIN. THE JACKET IS ONLY GREAT FOR SPRING OR WARM DAYS. THE BIGGEST CON IS THAT IS IS EXTREMELY SMALL. EVEN WEARING A SWEATER OR LONG SLEEVE SHIRT IT PRETTY TIGHT. IT IS NOT TRUE TO SIZE AT ALL. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON PRODUCT.
I would recommend this product.

I LOVE the color (I got the red hibiscus). I am normally a 2x, but ordered the 3x because of the other reviews. It fits a little big through the mid-section, but I'm so glad I got the 3x because the arms are quite tight. I can get the coat on and off without a lot of trouble, but it is annoying. I'll be keeping it though - everything else about it is great.
I would recommend this product.

I'm not sure why this "Plus" size was designed to run small, but it is, mostly through the shoulders. It looked like a beautiful jacket otherwise.

I have several Columbia jackets and all are the same size. This one runs considerably smaller. If you order this jacket, order a size larger than you normally would. I can't comment on anything else as I've already returned it.

This jacket is absolutely perfect for rain in warmer months. I bought the jacket for a summer trip to Seattle. I needed a jacket that would keep the rain from keeping me indoors, while also being breathable and light weight. The jacket is very light and will easily fold and fit into a bag or pack without taking up too much room. Once again, Columbia has crafted a quality product to help me get out and enjoy life!
I would recommend this product.
