Rated 2 out of 5 by ericeileen7174 It was perfect except for the hood.
The hood was bulky and didn't lay nicely. The Velcro strip on the back of the hood was there for some reason but I could not figure out how to use it. When the hood was rolled up, the appearance was not nice.
I still have a navy raincoat (TRAVELER) with a flat hood behind the collar that I purchased in about 2002 and it is in perfect condition. The styling is perfect. However, I was looking for a new color.
I was also looking for a jacket that would be more appropriate for going to the city or for traveling abroad. This hood made it great for camping and hiking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by trish1921 Nice but Too Heavy
This looked like a very nice jacket, nice fabric and well made. Think it would be great in New England during the Spring or Fall. However for the deep south it was just too heavy for most of the year and not enough warmth for the winter. I had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moodylu Love this jacket
The more I wear this jacket, the more I appreciate all the quality features it has. I love the double zipper, so great for comfort in the car. And the quality snaps are a surprise bonus for when you don't want to zip it up. The material doesn't wrinkle and it keeps out ALL the water. The hood has a built in visor and the hood has adjustments in the back for a good fit. There is an hidden inside zippered pocket! The outside pockets are deep enough for your hands (angled). I bought the Deep Navy - it is a gorgeous color, not a drab navy and not purple, very classy looking color. The inside is comfortable, not too hot in the heated car. No hot flashes with this on! I LOVE IT. Worth every penny and I think I will have this jacket for years to come. It is waterproof but not annoying to the touch like the cheaper jackets. You can see the rain drops repelling on it like a freshly waxed car. And I am a petite but it is plenty long enough when sitting down in the petite size. A plus is that you can adjust the waist with the pulls on the inside so nobody knows. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by Virginian3 I LOVE it!
I'm 5'10", pear-shaped with long arms. When I shop online, I almost never buy"long" sleeved items, because they never are, but I needed a raincoat, so I decided to try this one in the clear emerald. The color is GORGEOUS, the sleeves are plenty long enough (!!!) and it's generously cut thru the hips. I couldn't be happier with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VintagePauper Windbreaker, waterproof and awesomely great fit
A great buy for those hikers, running to the store or sitting at a ball park. This jacket is worth every dollar and down to every detail to the words in their description. Yes, I was hesitant buying from a catalog. Chicago winds blows on a rainy cool day, I am dry to the bone. I was able to wear a sweatshirt underneath without the bulkiness. And it is washable - No dry cleaning!
Go for it ladies, let it rain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fabulousfoodie4fun Perfect Non Winter Jacket
Beautifully made jacket exceeded my expectations. Love the Orchid color, the roomy styling that allows for layering with a sweater and the 2 way zipper. Nice soft fabric doesn't crackle. The hood is a necessity in this wretched climate.. No velcro to snag sweaters or gather fuzz on the cuffs, snaps are much kinder adjustment feature. Definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by granny25 Just what I had been searching for!
Jacket fit was perfect fit in my normal my size; comfortable and roomy and very stylish. I bought it in the Emerald Clear and the color is truly beautiful. A great change of pace with a lovely new color! Fits normal; and some of the features and pockets have been changed to give the jacket a new appearance. I am very happy with my choice to buy this jacket and highly recommend it. Normally I do not find time to leave reviews but I think this jacket deserves this applause!

Rated 1 out of 5 by wizdwood200 VERY DISAPPOINTED
I bought this coat 2 years ago. Absolutely loved it. Wonderful fit. Always kept me dry. Got an oil stain on it that won't come out, have to buy a new jacket. New jacket arrived today and it is too, too short. I am sending it back tomorrow.
