Women's Water-Shedding Raincoat
I had been searching for a longer, rain-repellent coat for some time and this one was perfect. It is fairly easy to remove the liner and the garment is light-weight and wrinkle resistant. I would have liked to have the sleeves fuller and the hood smaller but these problems are minor. I do love the coat.

Nicely made but way too wide
Nice quality fabric and well-made, but the petite extra small was very wide in the torso area. It would have fit nicely when I was 9 months pregnant. The fabric was heavy enough that the torso area stood away from my body. I looked pregnant even though I'm in my 60s.

What a disappointment
Ten years ago I bought a rain coat from Norm Thompson. I've worn it to death. Getting ready for a big trip, I decided it was time for a new jacket. The old one still fits, but I've gained a few pounds in ten years, so I ordered one size larger.
Imagine my disappointment when I couldn't even begin to button this jacket. The styling is substantially similar to the ten year old jacket, but the cut is not. I am so disappointed that I have to return this jacket.

Looks like a much more expensive jacket
Excellent craftsmanship, high quality materials. The zip-in lining is an is an added feature, not as bulky as some I've seen. At a bit over 5'4," 140 lbs, i'm usually size 10 or medium in most clothes. I am on taller end of petite, but decided to order a petite large because sometimes the shoulders on petite sizes are snug on me and lengths long (this is a 3/4 length jacket). It was a good choice in my case, although the sleeves are a tad long, because I want to be able to layer. Lots of room, zip in lining, buttoned-on hood (no velcro, and I like that).. Haven't tested yet for how well the jacket resists rain, but I think this will be a good choice for the trip we are planning for mid-Septemeber to Alsace.

Loved this coat!
Good fit, liked the color, removable liner just the right weight for my part of the country.

Exactly as presented in the description.
The coat is exactly what I need, but the outer fabric is a little "stiffer" than I expected. I had a similar coat (different brand) that had a much softer feel.

I wore this coat last spring. It was terrific. Since then I lost some weight, so I just bought it again in the next smaller size. It has lots of room to fit over heavy sweaters or blazers. The hood is very useful, and the lining gives you some added warmth.

Very stylish coat for cooler or rainy weather.
This is a very stylish coat that fits well over blazers or jackets/sweaters. The zip-in lining makes it usable in cooler weather. The contrasting black trim and lining make it look reversible My only wish is that it could be reversible. ( However, to make that happen, the zip-in liner wouldn't work.) It's very comfortable and always looks good for casual or dressier occasions.
