This is such a great rain jacket. Very thin material so it's good to wear in the spring or fall if its warm but just wet. I bought it in a size bigger than I need and wear it over my warm jacket. It definitely keeps all the rain and water out. Very good buy.

Didn't get this from Zappos but I've owned this jacket for about three years and it's great. Fits well and I've gotten compliments on it. I like the adjustable sleeves and the overall fitted look and feel of the jacket. Also like how the hood is a little extended and can stay in place on your head when it's raining or you're moving around. Overall great.

Very nice, durable jacket. I was impressed that it doesn't over heat your body, but it also keeps you warm, if needed. A great jacket that fits well!

This jacket is attractive in color and the way it is designed. It is true to size. It has many features to keep the wind out. The shipping was next day. Overall it is excellent!

Great raincoat. I'm typically a size 6 top/ 4 bottom. The medium was the perfect size to leave a little room for a sweater underneath.

Of course since I bought this, it hasn't rained but it's still a nice, lightweight jacket. It fits well but I don't think it would keep you warm in cold weather.

I love this jacket. It has a flattering fit - much better than I had expected from a rain jacket. The hood is large and the chin flap helps when there's a downpour. The only thing that's missing would be one of those pockets that can contain the entire jacket. But it packs down pretty small anyway for convenient travel. I ordered a medium, my usual size, and it fit well without any extra bulk.

I don't know why it took me so long to buy a rain jacket. Love this coat! It is nice and lightweight and fits in a bag if needed. Have used it so many times in the past month. Great price!

This jacket was very feminine and flattering. Great lightweight jacket, I usually wear XL in Columbia, but there wouldn't be any room to wear any other jacket underneath but perfect for a spring/summer rain jacket.

I purchased this after a particularly rainy spring and wanted a jacket with a hood. For the price, it is a great deal - the hood works great and it has a nice fit. Light weight and you can easily wear bulkier clothing underneath. I am usually between a S and a M and went with the M and it fits great.

I got a rain jacket due to rainy weather these past few months and I love it! I'm always satisfied with Zappos and their fast shipping. When I tried it on, the arms fit perfectly but overall, it was a little big on me even though I got a small. I'm thinking if I put it over a sweatshirt or what not, it will be perfect! The color is little bit darker, which I like, and I love the soft part on your chin! I am very satisfied with my purchase!

I wish that every company was like Zappos! Seriously. I can breathe easy knowing when I order from them it's going to be flawless. I love this jacket. I would return it for size reasons but I need it this weekend. I ordered and extra small and I wanted it to be more form fitting. It will be when I wear a layer - but I love a form fitting lady jacket. Buy this jacket, it's great.

Gave it to my daughter for Christmas. Exactly what she wanted. When she wants to be a little warmer she wears her fleece jacket underneath it. Great jacket at a great price.

This isn't a review about the coat so much as the price. When I received the jacket, there was a price tag on it valued $5 less than what I paid. I checked online and the price on the tag was the retail price from Columbia. I contacted Customer Service and they adjusted the difference. :) Zaptastic service!

I ordered this jacket in XS as I'm 5'1" and 110 pounds. Columbia usually makes very nice products and this is no exception. It fit great, but I would not be able to wear anything but a tight shirt underneath, so for my purposes, it will need to go back. I think the bigger size will be too large all around. I would have prefered the all-white jacket, but the blue and white was actually very slimming. Perfect if you just need a lightweight rain jacket.

Love the jacket. It's very functional. I like the blue and white design and it looks great with jeans. Very sporty look. The only complaint I have is the zipper since it is on the wrong side (at least for my taste). It's like it's made for left handers. The actual zipper is on the right, all my other zipper clothes have it on the left.

I got this jacket to wear walking to class on rainy and very windy days. It's perfect! This is my go-to jacket! I usually wear a medium but I ordered a large so I could wear a sweater under and it fits great!

I like this jacket, but it has some limitations and is best for very light rain conditions. I thought it would be great to go without an umbrella to I would have my hands free to hold dog leashes, shopping bags, books, etc., but the hood on this jacket is disappointing. It is not large enough to keep the rain off my face or from dripping inside my glasses. Even worse, the hood keeps slipping back farther as I walk. Then rain gets inside the hood, so pulling it up into place again dumps water down the back of my neck. In short, this jacket is styled to look cute rather than for actual rain wear. It is not long enough to provide much protection from rain anyway - it only keeps my shirt dry and I arrive at my destination with wet pants, face, hair, hands, etc. The fabric is water repellent; rain beads up on the surface and it is necessary to let the water drain and drip from the jacket after use, comparable to using an umbrella. The jacket is attractive and cut to flatter a slim figure. I enjoy wearing it but am keeping an eye out for a fully functional rain jacket.

Warning for other pear shapes out there, this jacket is snugger at the hips than the other brands that I have tried.

It's a really high quality coat! The sleeves are long which as a taller woman I like, and it's a great length. The only thing I would say is that it runs a skosh small, not enough to not fit, it's just a little tight.

Super cute jacket. Fit true to size. I'm 5'2 and I have an athletic body type. I ordered a small and it fit me perfectly, with enough room for light layering underneath.
