Lightweight Windbreaker

The product description says the fabric is “bonded to an inner fleece face,” which made me think this would have a really warm lining. It feels more like twill—not the warmth I was looking for. Nice style if you're looking for a pure and simple windbreaker, though.

This coat was disappointing for me. I feel it runs large - and it's a lot of fabric - the arms are very long, and don't know how you could shorten and still have it look good and the overall styling. I think it might be a good choice for a taller (5'8"+) person. Also, while the inner fabric is soft, the outer fabric is noisy and somewhat stiff/heavy. All in all not a keeper : (

I love this rain jacket, it was just what I was looking for and fits me perfectly. I ordered size 36 in Black. I based the sizing on my bra measurements as this is European sizing and it works for me.

Too tight in the hips for gal my age (63). Very well constructed garment & no doubt it will be warm & waterproof for the British Isles.

Wonderful coat that is well made. The sleeves are a little long for me, but it feels good and warm. Can’t wait to try it in Europe.

Lovely rose color and fits well. It feels very solidly rainproof. My only complaint is the the snaps and zipper are very hard to use. The snaps requires a lot of force to close. I have not yet been able to get the zipper to work but hope that with time both of these will improve. I would have expected better fasteners at this price point.

this is a really nice practical raincoat with an attached hood and not too heavy. i think it was worth the money because it well made and stylish. its stylish and feminine. why did i return it? it has a rubbery outer coating which probably makes it really waterproof but i already have a coat like that. i bought something lighter, silkier and less expensive. i hope it will be waterproof like it says!

This jacket is exactly what I wanted. Warm and stylish! It’s a raincoat that feels like you have a sweater undearneath. The back is cute as well! Perfect for our summer trip to London, Scotland & Ireland.

Although the fabric quality was great, the sleeves on this jacket were oddly constructed. (wide and long). Otherwise lovely, just not quite right for me.

Already reviewed but thought I'd mention sizing. I usually wear 10 in jackets/coats I ordered a 44 anyway. Glad I did. Not huge but room for layers. I'm 5'10 sleeves are nice and long. Love this coat.

Nice style. The fabric is a tiny bit...crunchy? Double up/down zipper will solve any sitting problems though. The only thing: I am 5’5”, 124# fit 32D. The size 34 (US 2) fit PERFECTLY. Too perfectly IMO. Very fitted at the waist. I was concerned I’d never be able to wear anything thicker than a long sleeved t-shirt underneath it. Bought it for a trip to Scotland. As I live in SoCal, pretty sure I’m gonna be cold and need a sweater. Ended up with the size 36 (US 4) but have to roll up the sleeves a bit. Still, I like it.

Though you can't really see it in the photo, the hood is held on with a leather strap that needs to be buckled in the front or it will simply slide out of its loops. It's really odd. Unbuckled, which it will be 99% of the time, especially if the jacket is unzipped or on a hanger, it will simply slide out to get lost. When unbuckled, it also hits the wearer in the face while wearing the jacket. I really love the style other than this and would've kept it. I am keeping another IJ jacket, though I don't like it as well as this one (other than the odd strap). You could remove the hood and strap, but then you won't have a hood if it does rain and you'll have empty loops around the collar. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the quality or size of this jacket, and if you like the leather strap, it may be the perfect jacket for you.

Would be nice if they gave a waist measurement of the actual jacket. The size chart does give a waist size, but it doesn't mention how much clearance that will give you. I ordered by chest size which didn't work out for me. I am a little hefty (5'5" and 165 lbs) in the mid section, so I had to go up a size. I ended up with the size 42 Even with the larger size I still will not be able to wear anything real heavy (thick sweater/sweatshirt) underneath. I also need to have the sleeves shortened which is typical for me. All in all I really like this coat. Nice color variety in this brand. Love the Army color which is more green than it shows online.

Very lovely coat! High quality as well as practical. Runs a tad big so I will wait for the 10 before I decide On the 12. To be fair I am between these sizes all the time.

I own a number of rain jackets, but they are black, brown, or screaming neon. I chose the Ilse Jacobsen Lightweight Raincoat in White/Blue, because it looked functional, but a little more tailored and versatile than what I own. I am 5 ft 9 and weigh 145 lbs. I tend to buy a large or a size 12, but I am very happy with the Euro 42. The jacket is lovely. The color is appropriate for spring/summer, and the trim is attractive. Functionally, there are plenty of pockets, a double zip, a hood, and the length is perfect. Covers your rear end when you sit down, about mid thigh length. Again, I find the fit, style, functionality and color attractive. But I haven't worn it in the rain yet!

If you're tall, you will love this coat. Otherwise, not so much.

This jacket is perfect!! It is slightly warmer for a raincoat which is exactly what I was looking for! Repels water nicely but still keeps you warm during a chilly rain. If you are looking to order and are in between sizes order down.

I really liked the rain jacket (I purchased in Red) but I returned it because I felt like a walking billboard for Ilse Jacobson. Her name was EVERYWHERE - every zipper pull, in the lining, on the sleeve, etc. It was seriously too much! If she maybe toned down her advertising, I would have kept the jacket, but I felt very uncomfortable walking around being a billboard.

Love the brick color! Sizing is appropriate. Another grommeted hole for ventilation under the arms would make this raincoat absolutely perfect, but give it 5 stars anyway. Ilse Jacobsen clothing worth every penny.

As another reviewer said, the yellow is more like brown mustard than bright yellow. Mustard doesn't work with my coloring. Returned it for the blue/white one which is like a very pale blue. Love it!
