Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kyrie from Ky on Friday, March 17, 2017This coat is so cute, great length and stylish fit. I got. Medium. I wear small in Lands end. And Calvin Klein coats but this fits perfect. Love the sorbet color. Wish it wasn't sold out in M as I would buy one for a gift
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rvr2mtn from Columbia River on Monday, January 30, 2017I am really wanting a longer rain jacket, and especially one that I can sail in. I also plan to put a down coat under when needed. This is not going to work. Wish it did. Returned
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Searching for New Boots from New York on Friday, January 13, 2017Looks like a quality product and I love the color (summer red). It's too bad they don't have an XS. Returning it as it's too big for me. This is on the heavier side, so good for fall or even a mild winter.
Reviewed by Rhubylu from Seattle on Saturday, December 3, 2016I was surprised at how uplifting this color was to wear. (summer red?) I don't usually wear bright colors but really need to be visible walking my dog on dark rainy nights. It is very well crafted, long enough to cover my butt and styled simply with out that look of a standard issue NW raincoat. It fit perfectly as long as I didn't need to wear anything underneath but this is Seattle so this won't get me through the cool winters. This coat is thin and sadly there is no room for layers beneath.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Eva in Seattle from Rainy Seattle on Friday, October 28, 2016There is a story about this raincoat for me. I actually bought it last year. Gray with hot pink zipper. The styling is great. Tailored at the waist, deep pockets, functional and well designed hood, and the two way zipper is a very useful design in a sport coat like this. Actually, with a nice scarf this doubles as a nice everyday coat that can be worn to functions, lunch events, professional meetings. Anyway --hooror -- I left mine somewhere!! Called all over town. No one had it. So on-line i went and there it was at Sierra Trading. I ordered it and boy do I keep trackof it now. Don't even mind that I had to pay for it twice!
Reviewed by Enzo the Puppy from Portland, OR on Tuesday, October 25, 2016I live in Portland Oregon and need a dedicated raincoat that is both functional and fashionable for wearing around town. When I found this for a steal, I jumped on it. I'm largely glad that I did. I generally dislike the look of "performance" clothing, and this is a perfect compromise between function and appearance.
I have a few STYLING issues though:
1. The wrists have reflective banding on them. That means a black stripe with two vivid white stripes on either side. The black alone could look okay but the white striping totally clashes.
2. I wish I had paid more attention to the hood styling. I knew it was a fold-up hood, which is typically great, but for my purposes it really isn't. The material the hood is made out of is thin and cheap and made out of a glossy clashing black with some print material. Now, if you want to wear this for your your regular coat, it isn't a big deal, but I was planning to wear it to walk the dog etc. in heavy rain. So I would have preferred a regular hood. But that was my miss, and might just be particular to me.
COLOR: I bought the color called soil, and thought that it would be a plain brown. When I got it it was labeled soil green, and is more of a olive brown, more brown than green, but just FYI. I like it a lot.
Regarding FIT: I'm a size 12 with a large bust, so I usually wear XLs on top, and most reviews I read said it ran small, so I bought an extra large. I found that a large would have been just fine, and perhaps more flattering, but the extra large is probably good because of course I will be layering under it. SO I dissent with those who say that it runs small. There are two other particularities: 1) I'm 5-10 and the sleeves were surprisingly long, but that's okay for outerwear; and 2) I actually have a pretty narrow back and shoulders but that area is a bit snug.
WARMTH: definitely light to midweight. It is lined, but with a poly type fabric. For the Pacific Northwest, it will probably be fine to wear all year round with layers under, but if you are in the Midwest etc. you are probably just going to get fall and spring mileage out of it.
I'm not personally sure whether I will keep it or look for something a bit more stylish or with a hood that is cooler, I'm super picky LOL. Regardless, I like it a lot and highly recommended with the caveat that you should take a look at the two styling issues I pointed out. But if you're cool with them, grab it. It is a really, really nice coat at a great price right now.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Just wanted to stay dry from Michigan on Tuesday, October 18, 2016Ordered on XL which should have fit with room to spare. Could not zip it shut. Also the sleeves were extremely long. Returned it.
