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!

This coat fits more like a shirt than an overcoat. The coat does not meet in middle in front without being zipped. I tried on with a sweater and it felt snug, yet the stretch in fabric allowed for some give. This being said, the style is most flattering and the color classy. I am going to give it a try. Looks like it would be a good windbreaker as well as waterproof.

Wow, what a beautiful rain jacket! I was looking for something stylish to take to Europe and this fits the bill. It is not too heavy nor too light, seems extremely well made, fits great with just the right amount of stretch, the longer length will keep my bum dry and doesn't look like some dowdy raincoat. Yes, it's more than I'd typically spend, but I think this coat should last me for a very long time.

The "short" coat was indistinguishable in length from the 3/4 coat. I liked it better than the 3/4 coat since it has a packet that covers the zipper and inner sleeve liners at the cuff to keep wind out. It was too large for me, so order down if between sizes. Also, I had hoped for a more substantial fleece liner.

Nice coat but fleece lining was rather thin and offered not as much warmth as I had hoped. If you are between sizes, size down.

This jacket makes me so happy. I purchased it in the yellow color and the bright color makes me smile on a rainy day! it's a little more gold in color than pictured but i really love it. I went up a size since my preferred size wasn't available. i'm happy i did since it's roomy enough to fit a heavy sweater underneath. The jacket seems well-made and i was happy to see that there are snaps at the sleeves to keep them from falling over my hands.

This is a well made coat but it's bulkier than I'd expected. Would have tried a size smaller but the Army color is too green. Sad to have to give it up.
