Rated 4 out of 5 by Krisanne too short vs too long
I ordered this as an XL Petite as I find when I order regular XL the sleeves are over my fingertips. Alas, the petite is too short in body length. I loved this coat, but am returning. Maybe Bean could consider making short, long or extra long arm lengths like they do for some jeans. Probably not cost effective. I love Bean; however, for my body type (large bust, no waist and regular hips) tops and coats are difficult.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Samjaydee NOT waterproof, even in a light rain
My title says it all. Would give this a zero rating if I could. The jacket itself would make a nice windbreaker, but the point of a RAIN JACKET is to keep a person dry! So everything else goes out the window when it fails completely at its intended purpose. I wore it, once, in a very light rain. It soaked through right away. I do realize these jackets are treated to be waterproof, and since they are not made in this country, there are usually defects in the manufacturing. But the waterproofing process needs to be good on a rain jacket. And the batch mine came from is not. Most of the time returning for a different one takes care of the problem, however I am not happy about having to bear the cost of returning it for something that is not my fault. I will not be trying another one of these jackets, I will opt for a different one if I can find something on sale/clearance. I have also seen the hood criticized on other reviews and it is tiny. It will not keep your face dry. And for those of us who wear glasses, they will get wet. Because of this I wear a baseball cap, which remedies this problem. The small hood was not enough to deter me from this jacket. However not being waterproof is a total deal breaker. This one will be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilyn4cats Beautiful jacket!
I got the azalea print. I had a chance to try it on, and my usual size fit, but it felt small around the hips. Since I might wear a sweater under it, I ordered the next size up. Can't wait to wear it! It's still a little too chilly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kamakazi Good Jacket
i bought the jacket for my daughter who is going to Disney World and rain is scheduled. We got Mulberry which is so pretty. They really should include directions or have a video on the website about how to fold it up into the pocket. I had to chat with a specialist and she gave me the instructions, but i feel like it will come out wrinkly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cinnamon123 great in Ireland
I bought this for a trip to Ireland in Nov. where it rained every day. Trip was great, jacket was perfect and easy to stow in a light backpack. Did not get wet at all, and I like the hood as it keeps those wet gusts off your face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyfishWoman Great as windbreaker and rain jacket
I bought this jacket in 2013 for my trip to NYC. It's self stow was great for packing. It served well as a wind breaker and for the light rain. True test was my July 2014 Yellowstone River float trip--got caught on river in pouring rain storm with side winds & dropping temps. I stayed dry under my jacket!! And it cut the cross winds blowing down the river valley. I did get pretty cold after a while, but this is a lightweight and very breathable jacket and I only had a t-shirt on underneath--expected. Great jacket for its purpose and price! Only complaint is sleeve cuffs are only elastic without Velcro straps to tighten cuffs--re-design idea...

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Jacket
My daughter out grew her kids size, ordered one of these and it was too small. Called customer service, they worked with her on another size, returned it, they send the other size, fit perfectly. She has the black jacket with a pink monogram, not my taste but she loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YJ2014 Waterproof, comfortable, packs small
This jacket is great! It is extremely waterproof and the hood covers my head nicely so even when I wear my glasses they can avoid getting wet. I also love how small it packs up to be. It is lightweight but it does trap heat inside of it so if you are moving it can get warm. I am about 5'4" and 120 lbs and I ordered a size small and it seems a little big on me but not too much. I didn't go smaller though because I like to wear hoodies underneath it when it is chillier out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoyeFamily Practical and comfortable
I got this jacket in petite blue. The jacket fits really well and hits right at the hips. The color is unobtrusive, not bad, not amazing. The jacket is very lightweight, so will not provide warmth. It isn't too clingy nor does it stick to you too much like some raincoats. Also, it is terribly convenient that it stuffs into it's pocket! Perfect for throwing in a bag for work, a baseball game, or a hike.
