This jacket is simply perfect! I live in Seattle and have been searching for a "girly" rain jacket for quit some time. This was exactly what I was looking for. The material is soft, flexible and very comfortable. The color is exactly as pictured! I wear a size 13/14 pant and L/XL t-shirts & sweaters. I was worried about the fit but to my surprise the XL fits perfect and I can comfortably wear a sweater underneath. So grateful to this company for making a wonderful product of good material and fashionable at the same time!

There are so many great reviews here that helped me decide on my purchase, so I only have a little bit of info to add. I ordered the Aqua and the Mint, as I could not tell from the images here or searched online which one I would prefer. I'm attaching 3 pictures that I hope will help future buyers who may have the same dilemma! They're both very pretty and bright! For the record, I really liked the mint in person but it didn't go well with my rain boots and it is a much darker hue than I hoped, and I LOVED the aqua, so my decision was easy. For size reference, I am 5'3, about 140lbs and I'm wearing the size Small here with a relatively thin sweater underneath. It's comfortable and I can cross my arms across my chest pretty well considering the fabric has little give, if any. I would only size up had I planned to wear a heavy fleece under this jacket, but I do not, and sizing up may cause me to lose some of the flattering shape.
I love this jacket (finally, a hood with drawstrings on a rain jacket!) and my only complaint is the zipper, which sticks and seems very cheap/plasticky. It's not enough to make me return it, not by far. I've been looking for a great rain jacket for probably 4 years, and this is the best I have found!
Update: 10/22/16: I've had this jacket now for a year and I'm changing my review from 4 to 5 stars. The questionable zipper has held up perfectly and the jacket itself is perfect; warm, breathable, not too heavy, and durable. I managed to snag it on a sharp piece of metal and put a tiny hole in it, so I put a very thin layer of clear nail polish over it and it's held just fine, not even noticeable. I plan to buy another, one to keep in my car, and I will probably get the purple or a slightly darker color this time because I'm a bit abusive towards my coats and there are a couple of small dirt marks on this one now. I wholeheartedly recommend this jacket!

wish i could give TEN stars!
This is so darned cute - much more so than I expected when I ordered it. Also the fit is perfect - I was not sure about that, either. I am 5'6" and 150 (or so) lbs and almost ordered a large, but got medium - it fits great. The SLEEVES ARE LONG ENOUGH, and they have velcro tabs to snug them at the wrist. The construction seems really good, and the reflective stripe is really reflective. Now i can walk the dog in the rain at night and not worry about not being seen.

Excellent quality, perfect for camping/hiking, looks good
I have tested this raincoat in two hiking trips in the last 4 months, and it has worked beautifully. It protects me from the wind (especially if I tighten the sleeves, zip up all the way, and put the hood on), and it stops the rain. I tested it in the rainy conditions while hiking in Peru (at the end of the wet season/ beginning of the dry season), and I can report back that it perfectly protects the clothes from getting wet, and keeps the warmth very well. Additionally, the pockets are very convenient, as they are big and they zip up all the way, so you can put anything you want to have on quick access there (like your phone) without being worried about losing it (or about it getting wet in the rain). Finally, it is also easy to clean: just wipe it with a wet cloth.
So my conclusion: it is highly functional in the camping environment, very well made, and cute. Excellent quality and a great look. I am very glad I bought it, and I would highly recommend it.

Worth buying! Strong recommendation! I watched a light show with it on me in the rain today, it ABSOLUTELY WORKS. The color is very beautiful. My family love it as much as I do.

I'm 5'4, size 14 & the XL fits fantastically with a cardigan underneath for warmth (I like it a little baggy to give the rain room to drip off). I bought this last month to wear in Seattle when we visited and it worked great to keep me dry for the five days it rained there. I've also work it in the rain at home and it has kept me dry this past week. No need for an umbrella.
I agree with other reviews that the hood should be better because it blows off in the wind and has no drawstring, but with a baseball cap, it's not bad. It isn't a warm coat so I did pair it with a cardigan and thermal underwear on one day when it was in the low 40s. That worked well. It also works as a wind breaker.

Cute and functional rain jacket
Very comfortable and can easily fit long sleeve shirt underneath. I thought it would be a little more lightweight than it was since I bought it for summer, but I am still overall satisfied and would buy it again. The pale pink is super cute in person as well, and the jacket will be good for any season.

I loved this jacket
I loved this jacket, but I had to return it. Based on reviews saying it runs large, I ordered size small. I'm 5'5" and weigh 122. I wanted a jacket that fit well all over but had room in the shoulders, and the small was a little snug in that area. I'll be reordering a size medium. The small fit as I would expect, but I should have stuck with a medium, which is what I would normally order. Very nice quality!

Hated it at first, but now I would own nothing else
I originally actually HATED this jacket. I thought it was so god ugly when I put it on for the first time and the noise it made when I walked due to the waterproof material was a major turn off. But I needed a newer lightweight jacket for spring. For the winter I wear a knee length down parka from Columbia but my only other jacket for the spring was a lightweight fleece jacket also from Columbia. I'm a student at Michigan State and I had classes at 8 am. So I would leave around 7 am to walk to class and up until April it was freezing in the morning but hot by the end of the day and my down parka would not suffice in that weather. This jacket is perfect for both fall and spring in Michigan. And I'm in love with the Navy now and the silver accents. This jacket really grew on me. It's long enough and loose enough to still wear a hoodie underneath, something I can't do with any other jacket. The waterproof works amazing as well and the detail in the flyaway areas for breathability is great too. My only negative comment about this jacket is that I wish the pockets were a little bigger. It fits my iPhone 6 very tightly. It's hard to also have my hand in the pocket at the same time as my phone. Another negative about this jacket is the hood. But with all jackets it's hard to get a good hood for some reason. Forget about using the hood if you have your hair in a pony tail or up. The elastic that pulls the hood tighter is also weird to me, I can pull it tight but the strings go right back to normal. I haven't figure out how to fix that yet. But it doesn't really bother me, I still love this jacket.

Nice jacket but had to send back and exchange for a medium vs a large. Haven't received the Medium yet so I hope it was the right thing to do! Going to Scotland so need to be able to layer underneath, but the jacket was large enough I could have worn another jacket underneath. I'm 5'3" and 140# - usually wear a medium but decided to go up a size due to the conflicting size info in the reviews. Good news, though, is that the other reviews were absolutely correct in how easy it was to send back and exchange.
