Columbia® Pardon My Trench™ Rain Jacket for Ladies
light jacket for PNW rain
I think this jacket is up to par with some of the weather we have been having here. Plus I needed a longer light rain jacket to go with my long shirts/skirts/dresses for work. For the price, you get what you paid for. I like that this jacket is light and keeps me protected from light rain. I haven't tested it in heavy rain but i don't expect it to protect me like the north face. Same material as Northface on the outside, just a little concern on durability though. Other than that, I order this and received it within 2-3 business days for standard shipping. Just in time for the holidays! Thanks for making my first purchase fast and efficient!

Designed for a petite person?
I was attracted to the figure-flattering, feminine style of this belted rain jacket. I ordered this in a small and found the fit to be really nonstandard. I am average height: 5'6", and weigh 114lbs. *Most clothing tends to fit me either large in the chest or short in the sleeves because I have a straight body type.* This jacket, in a size small, was actually long enough in the sleeves, but tight in the shoulders and bust, and narrow in the hips. The waist belt landed on my rib-cage, not my waist! It did not give an hourglass silhouette as in the picture! I sent it back and ordered a medium. It is actually for my daughter who will be traveling to the UK soon. She is 5'4", 120lbs and bustier than me. I hope it fits!

I didn't heed the warning of the other reviewers and bought this in my usual size. Seems it was much too small. I bought in an XS (5'2", 115lbs) and found that the sleeves barely hit my wrists. For jackets, like most people, I want sleeves that hit on my hand to make sure there is no gap if I'm wearing gloves. It was also uncomfortable with a medium-bulk sweater underneath. I unfortunately had to return this.

Pardon my trench
I really like the design and look of this jacket. I purchased one for myself and my mother. I ordered a large. My body measurements are just smaller than the ones listed and it barely fits me. It runs small in the hips especially. I do love how it looks though. My moms measurements are within the ones listed for XL and the jacket did not fit. Could not be zipped.
