Women's Water-Shedding Raincoat
Just what I've been looking for!
I bought this coat to take on a trip to Ireland. I haven't been yet so can't comment on how it will protect in that weather, but it is perfectly adequate for wearing at home in GA. The hood does seem a bit large, and I might try wearing a cap with a bill underneath. Other than that, it's great.

The Perfect Raincoat
I was so pleased with this raincoat that I ordered my daughter one too. It is just perfect for our Florida climate with the zip out lining. Love that it is so lightweight but warm and does a great job keeping me dry in the rain.

not the same as pictured
I ordered the "black" because the picture showed it "black and white". When it came, it was "black with stone or tan trim, not white". I returned it.
Quality of the coat looked ok, but it was not the same color I saw in the picture.

Love this coat
I love that the lining can be taken out - I am going on a trip this fall and will take the coat and lining to make sure that I am covered for all sorts of weather. Looks dressy enough to go out for dinner but fine for over jeans as well. Doesn't look like a rain coat......

Great Color Combination
This raincoat was all the I had hoped it would be when it arrived.
I fits very nice and I know I will get years of wear out of it.

Just what I was looking for for travel
I had been looking for a light to medium weight jacket for travel that would have all the properties I wanted in one. This fits the bill - it's a raincoat, but the hood is detachable so it is very appropriate for more "dressy" events. It is black, so it goes with everything. Maybe best of all and very unusual for me, the sleeves are long enough.

This coat IS machine washable!
I like customer reviews because you get helpful information. I decided to add my voice to the person who said you can wash the coat, and to the person who didn't like how stiff the coat fabric is.
The coat is 100% polyester so I couldn't understand why it said dry clean only.
I would NOT wash the liner, but I decided to wash the coat because I also didn't like how stiff the coat fabric is. The coat has a backing that is kind of fibrous and that is what makes it stiff. I did wash the coat on a regular cycle in my front loader and it came out fine- the wash made the fabric much softer and did not damage the backing at all.
I have the dusty plum color and I really like it- and now that I know I can wash the coat I like it even better!

Exactly what I was looking for
This raincoat is exactly what I'd seen on several women and wanted, but couldn't find in a store. So many coats are called raincoats, but don't have a hood, which just doesn't make any sense. This one has a great, adjustable hood. It runs true to size and has a lining that gives a bit of extra warmth, but it is not for very cold weather. My only tiny complaint is that it is a button front--I'd prefer a zipper-- and the button holes are just a bit tight. Other than that, perfect!
