by fromgood looking light coat I get many compliments. The belt is too long so I took it off the coat. The coat still looks good.

by fromMy updated review I first bought this coat in a Medium after reading the reviews about how small it runs. The medium, as my prior review states, fits very trimly, looks great, and has a wonderful hood, but did not allow for any layering without feeling restricted (which I hate). Room necessary in order to be a useful, versatile garment. I also appreciate the two-way zipper. Because I liked the coat, and because I couldn't find another that I liked the looks of as much as this one, and because I have had good experience with REI's Elements line, I decided to try the Large even though buying a large considering my size (5'3", 125lbs) seemed absurd. Amazingly the Large fits great, even through the shoulders, but the label SHOULD read Small or Medium with this fit. It still has a trim, stylish shape, but there is now room enough in sleeves and body to not only put layers underneath, but to move easily when I do so. I believe this will now be a good 3-season raincoat. I may take up the sleeves an inch which would still leave the little strap/buckle intact. The medium was also a bit short-waisted; this one is better. I also don't mind the extra hem-length with the larger size. I am returning the medium, and looking forward to actually putting this one to the wind/rain test. I am surprised at REI for designing a casual, functional coat which runs so very narrow.

by fromExcellent for work and traveling I am giving 4.5 stars because I am very satisfying with the product, but there are some room for improvement. Good quality and very stylish, yet functional. Love the pockets and also the hood to snap on for a sudden shower. Hope the colar is shorter not to touch the chin. The buttom front velcros should be replaced with the snap buttons not to run my stockings. Water protection in the rain was OK, but not in the stormy condition.

by fromGreat jacket for rainy travel I purchased this jacket for a trip to Italy in the spring. The weather was rainy for 6 of the 11 days we were there. This jacket was waterproof, comfortable, and stylish enough that I didn't think I looked like the average tourist in their bright blue rain slickers. The hood was perfect for days when it was only sprinkling and I didn't want to pull out my umbrella. I only wish the jacket would have been warmer and a little more wind proof. However, if I layered a sweater, sweatshirt, and this jacket, I was fine most days.

by fromLots of compliments! I'm 5'1" and 110 lbs, and the Women's Small fits me perfectly. I am pleased with the rain repellency--haven't tested it in a downpour yet, though--and the styling of the coat and hood is very, very nicely sewn and designed. Cozy feeling; lovely, soft fabric. There is something about the tailoring that apparently looks really nice, because friends have remarked how smart it looks. I got the denim color, which is jean-like in hue, and my only mild complaint is that the belt is waaaaayyyy too long for the zippered girth, forcing the wearer to tie it in a silly way (as shown in the catalog photo) or tuck the tail over the belt in the back. I would prefer an adjustable arrangement without a huge tail left over.

by fromjust what I wanted I like everything about this coat, jut what I was looking for after 2 failed attempts at other rain gear. casual enough for everyday and travel, or can dress up with this coat. The length is perfect for both good coverage and easy mobility.

by fromGreat multi-purpose waterproof jacket Wore this on a trip to the UK last week. Performed really well in pouring rain on a walk on Bodmin moor and worked just as well on the business meetings portion of my trip a few days later. Can't find the 'document pocket' anywhere, though. Am I missing something?

by fromAwesome.... so far! I had my eye on this coat for about six months before I finally bought it. Based on other reviews I was worried that the sleeves might not be long enough. I am 5'6" and normally wear a S, and I have encountered this problem with other coats in the past. I ordered a S anyway, and am pleased to report that the sleeves are just long enough. The rest of the coat is true to size as well. I bought the grey color (porpoise) and must say it is much more flattering in person than online. I've only had the coat for a few weeks, so I can't speak to it's long-term durability or dryness in a down pour, but is has been perfect in light to medium rain so far!
