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!

I'm so excited to see these colorful rain jackets with xs size for small lady like me. it's so handy in Portland where rains a lot. I can see why some customers think it is too small, but if you are slim, this jacket make you stand out. On the first day I ware it to the supermarket, 3 ladies walked to me and asked me where I got it and how much I paid. It's an eye catcher. Thank you Columbia for making this type of jackets available for skinny ladies like me. This the most beautiful rain jacket I have seen.

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!

Stylish rain jacket
This jacket is very stylish for a rain jacket. It is not very warm though. If you want to wear this in winter weather you need something like a fleece jacket underneath. The jacket runs a little small. If you are in between two sizes, take the larger one.
