I wanted to be clear you can stuff this jacket into it's pocket, as someone answered that incorrectly.

Couldn't find many petite reviews so here's mine:
The XS fits great! I'm 5'1 100lbs. I like boxy fits (especially for jackets since I layer a lot) so I was worried thinking I should get a S but the XS is still very roomy! The jacket length is perfect- doesn't past the hip too much. The sleeve length is long but that's fine. It's not a hard fix to scrunch it up or fold it.

I got the lilac color and my sister got the teal color, and they were pretty close to the color in the display image. It looks like these colors are not available anymore, according to the current listings. I got my rain jacket over a year ago and it is still in great shape. This is a thin rain jacket - the fabric is a little transparent and it definitely is not a jacket you would wear for warmth - I will often pair it with a fleece underneath. This works well for keeping out rain and wind. The pockets and stowaway hood all work well. Pockets are not lined. Sleeves are long - see pictures - but I like them that way! You can tuck your hands in to stay dry.I bought it for trips to India and Bolivia in their rainy seasons and it held up admirably! If you are in soaking conditions for a long time (hours) then water can get through this jacket. Most rain jackets are not 100% waterproof because they also need breathability - this one is listed as water resistant, which is accurate. Good purchase and I would highly recommend this jacket!

I bought this to wear on a trip to Ireland. We haven't left yet but I have worn it around town on several rainy days. Of course as soon as I stepped outside it stopped raining so I can't speak to its ability to keep the rain out. I got the Miami blue color and I am really happy with it. It looks pretty with my skin and eyes and goes great with a pair of jeans. It is fairly true to size in my opinion. I am 5'9, 140 lbs and a size medium fit great. Not super fitted but still slimming while leaving enough room to wear a layer or two underneath. It's not very breathable which is great for keeping out moisture and keeping in heat which is perfect for a cool day but not so good to wear on a warm day. I think I would get kind of sweaty in it. If I could change soemthing about it I would get a liner or have another way of venting to get a little air flow. The fabric feels durable, is comfortable and the sound of the material isn't so plastic sounding as some rain jackets I have tried on. It has a nice high neck for keeping out rain and a hood that folds up comfortably in the collar.

Buy it!!

I love love loveeeeee this rain jacket. I have been in Norway for a week in 50-60 degree rainy weather, and this rain jacket has managed to keep me dry, and reasonably warm, through it all. I even ran outside in a thunderstorm in this jacket, came inside, completely dry underneath. There's really no reason not to buy it.

great jacket - I got it today and i am very happy with it as it is light, has nice color to it, has 2 packets, hood, they have mesh near hood on inside side. Material is little like in umbrella, and you might get little hot in it if you wear it when it is hot. I am 165 lbs and 5'8 and size L fit perfect. Glad that I didnt get size XL as it would be too big.I recommend that jacket. Price is good too.

I'm 5'6" weight at 155lbs. I was headed to an alaskan cruise and needed something to keep me dry. I wear a size medium but after reading the reviews I decided to go up a size since I was layering! That was a good decision. I wore a t-shirt, long sleeve shirt, and 2 sweaters underneath and then this jacket and the size up (large) fit comfortably. It was water proof for the most part but I was never in constant rainfall. The jacket kept the rain and sprinkling off but once it did seep through my jacket and got my outside sweater a little wet but I was still dry under all those layers. I give 4 stars because it let a little rain in and I got a very small tear on the sleeve after just 3 days from hiking. I still love it and would recommend it

Love it! I'm 5'9", pear shaped, 150lb, (US size 4/6 shirt, size 10/11 pants). I ordered a medium in black, and it fits perfectly. A small might have fit, too, but I chose a medium so I could layer underneath. The sleeve length is spot on for my height -- it actually covers my wrists!

Update: I wore it on an airboat ride in New Orleans on a warmer November day. It kept the wind out perfectly, was comfortable, and the Velcro on the wrists kept air out of the sleeves even with all the wind. I'll update my review again when I use it on a rainy day in Florida.

Update 2: I've now had this for more than a year and still love it. I've had to walk about a half mile in a Florida downpour, and it kept my hair and upper body totally dry. Great rain jacket! I just bought another one in a different color so I can keep one at work and one at home.

I love this jacket! I got it in the color Purple Lotus. I'm 5'3", 124 lbs. I have a 34" bust, 28.5" waist, and 36" hips. I got the medium and it fits well. In my pictures, I'm wearing the Columbia Benton Springs Fleece underneath. It still fits well. It's definitely not for warmth, but it will keep you dry. I may buy another in the color Lychee. Glad I got it.

I wore this on a trip to Banff National Park in Canada. I am 5'9" about 130lb and the medium was perfect. My only complaint is that the jacket does not breathe. It was not that cold out (about 60F), and i was sweating in this thing. I had to take it off because it was getting uncomfortable. Maybe if i were wearing a long sleeve under it, it would not be so bad.
I do not recommend this for when you are going to be exerting yourself, since you will sweat up a storm. Its like wearing a plastic bag.
Otherwise, cute coat.
