REI Belltown Rain Jacket - Women'sis rated4.6out of5by20.
Rated5out of5byhulawitchfromgreat jacketThis jacket is made to run bigger than normal, which is exactly what I was looking for. I plan to wear it over several layers in colder weather, and I think it will be great for that. I also love the longer length so it can be worn to work as well. So far I have worn it only in warm weather and it has been very comfortable and waterproof.

Rated5out of5bySophieBluefromNice!I ordered this out of desperation after getting caught in three rainstorms in the last two weeks. Brought it to work today, even though it was too hot this morning to wear it, and SOOOOO glad I did. Another drenching on my bike ride home, but even though my skirt and sandals got soaked, I didn't mind because I was so toasty warm and dry in my REI rain jacket. Who knew that rain protection could be so comfortable! The hood adjustments and plethora of pockets made it perfect.

Rated4out of5bykkrissiefromABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!This is my go-to jacket when it is threatening to rain or is raining and or windy It is light, so if one is looking for warmth, put a sweater on underneath it. My only two wishes for this jacket to be absolutely perfect are:
1) a detachable hood
2) nicer rich colours such as a rich red/blue colour...not the two colour combination of red and blue,but a red/blue red colour as opposed to a red/orange red colour!

Rated4out of5byhulawitchfromlove the longer lengthlove the longer length and lining to avoid that clammy feeling of lots of waterproof jackets. It is a little too oversize, but works for me because I want to be able to put many layers under it. If you don't want to wear a lot of layers i would buy a size down.

Rated4out of5byColorado Rickfromgreat item if you can buy it on salemy wife found this on a visit to REI where it was on the close out rack @ 50% off with a extra $20 coupon :), She is petite and finding items that fit is a challenge.
She wears it hiking, and to and from the office. It is light and provides good room for layering if needed. Shes says that the color is a fantastic purple, overall, this has become her favorite jacket in moderate temps for just about any outdoor activity. Her camelback is a good fit when wearing it with this jacket.

Rated5out of5byNature GlimpsesfromMy favorite rainjacket of all times!!!I love wearing this rainjacket. The material is wonderful and doesn't make a crinkly noise when you walk. The material feels soft but it keeps out the rain very well. I bought a size up because I wanted to have lots of room to wear sweaters etc. under it. It has nice pockets and zippered one inside the jacket.
I like the drawstring around the waist--I can adjust it depending on what I am wearing underneath it. The jacket is also nice and long. It is the best rainjacket I have ever owned --and it is just fun to wear.

Rated5out of5byPaleoistafromthe perfect casual rain jacketI love this jacket! I've worn it on long walks during rainstorms, with the ample yet comfortable hood up, and remained completely protected from the rain. I also enjoy it as an all-purpose jacket for cool weather, and it is roomy enough that I can layer a very lightweight jacket or several warm layers under it for really seriously cold weather. I bought a size large despite the fact that I'm an average-sized woman so that I'd have that option, and because I like my clothes to be a bit on the roomy side, as a rule. So, for versatility, comfort, great design and durability, I honestly can't imagine a better buy. I bought this jacket in a light olive color, so it's very casual. In a darker color it could also work as a somewhat dressier jacket, to go to dinner at a nice restaurant, to the theatre, etc. It's simply wonderful!

Rated5out of5bySassufromA great rain jacketThis jacket is very comfortable. It has performed well when I used it for a long walk in the rain: I was happy with the combination of waterproofness and breathability, and it is also windproof.
I also find the style attractive. The jacket fits nicely over a couple of light layers. Although the style is casual, it has the advantage of being long enough to go over a suit jacket, so can be used as an emergency raincoat (e.g., during professional travel).
