Rated 3 out of 5 by Wenonah Bad zipper
I love the color and the fit but the zipper drives me crazy. It is a two-way zipper. It zips on the wrong side and is most difficult to unzip when zipped up from the bottom. I sent the first jacket back, thinking it was a defective zipper but the 2nd one has same problem. Luckily, it also has snaps. The hood is too big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlpacaMom Nic quality, but not for me
This is a nice quality rain jacket. I liked the bright color, the adjustable hood, and the adjustable drawcord at the waist. However, I am fairly long-waisted, and the waist on this coat rode too high on me. I had to send it back. For someone more short-waisted, I think it would be very cute. I'm sure it would keep the rain off. Wish it fit me better.

Bought this for vacation and it was great. Put in suitcase, carried around and it never wrinkled and always looked great. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kimberwick Ideal Dog-Walking Jacket
Water "resistant" doesn't cut it in the Willamette Valley. I purchased the H2Off rain coat last year and it proved it was up to its name. Since my current dog-walking jacket was due for a replacement I decided to go for the H2Off jacket. The mesh-lined version is perfect for our moderate temperatures, and I ordered a roomy size so I can layer as appropriate. I like the two-way zipper and the ability to snug the waist a tad. My only complaints: even in a petite size the sleeves are too long, and the generous hood blocks my vision unless I wear a baseball cap. But the rain beads up on the jacket and it dries quickly. <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeanneFromAtlanta This rain jacket filled the bill!
Although I have a variety of rain gear, when we booked an excursion for June to Alaska's Inside Passage aboard a National Geographic ship, I knew I'd need not only protection from rain and wind but also a garment that would fit over whatever layers I might also need for warmth. It also had to fit easily in my backpack for shore excursions too. I initially ordered a petite small, and without additional layers it fit me perfectly, but with the added layers it was too snug around the hips and didn't zip easily enough for me.
I didn't know if I should exchange it for a regular small or a petite medium, so I called Customer Service, hoping for some guidance. The woman I talked to could not have been more helpful, advising me that she had measurements available to her that were not posted on the web site, and she willingly walked me through the considerations (arm length, jacket length, etc.). I settled on ordering the petite medium, and it is perfect, fitting nicely over all the garments I sometimes had to wear. Though a little roomy without added layers, it's a satisfactory trade-off.
The only Improvement I would make to the jacket would be to have a hood that can be rolled into a zippered collar when it's not in use. I do, however, like the tab at the back of the hood that lets me control how far forward the hood falls when it's on my head. Most hoods fall down over my eyes, but this one works!
All in all, the H2OFF Rain Jacket is great!

I love this jacket!The sleeves are rather long for a petite and wish it had one more zipper inner pocket,but the one it does have is quite roomy. The hood adjustment is great and like the longer length for coverage walking in rain. One improvement would be to have zippered outer pockets to keep heavy rain out.Love the bright emerald green color for visibility when walking dogs and the material is soft & lite weight.Would definitely recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaJeno Love it!!
This high quality rain jacket was perfect for me. I wore it on a windy day, and it completely blocked the wind. I haven't tried it on a rainy day, but am confident it will be fine.
If you have trouble with sleeves being too long, be careful. I ordered it in a petite large...perfect sleeve length, and the rest of the jacket measurements were the same as the regular large.
There is little "noise" factor in the fabric...try it, you'll like it!

Boxy fit and not classy style. Material felt very rubber-like. Would be hot to wear. I wanted more of a all weather like material that was rain resistant, this was not it! I returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kzumaWA Great jacket
I live in the Pacific Northwest, so needed a rain jacket that would allow for layering. Usually I wear XL, but this jacket was too small for layering so returned it and ordered 1X Womens. Good fit now with a sweater and vest. I love the snaps, rather than velcro, as well as the double zipper. It provides good wind protection and reasonable waterproof protection for light rains. Have not tried it in heavy rains. Deep Orchid color is gorgeous. Like the ability to give it waist shape with the elastic pulls and like the pleat in the back. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star is that there should be more pockets than the two side pockets and one zipper pocket at the chest. Women need to squirrel away stuff when hiking rather than carry a bag and it's better to have lots of pockets.
