RAINFOREST Packable Roll Sleeve Anorak
First thing I noticed....this coat isn't lined. It does seem to be well made, there are a good number of pockets and interior pockets...... but even the $130 coat I ordered had a lining. What on earth are they thinking ??
That being said... I got this coat in Grass. It's a very rich primary color. The size of the coat, plus the color, were very overpowering on my petite frame. I am a size 12, and consistent with the other reviewer's comments, I ordered a size up (XL). At first, I was thinking I was swimming in the coat...BUT if you want to cinch in the drawstring at the back to have a 'skirt' type of effect, you should size up. This coat could work if you are tall, but as a petite person I felt like I was swimming in the material. I also couldn't Cinch up the sleeves because the proportion to my size looked terrible.
I found that I highly disliked that this coat ZIPS ONLY. There are no snaps, belts, or alternate fasteners. I don't like that because sometimes you dont want to fully fasten the coat, yet you dont want it gaping open.
The deal breakers for me were the lack of lining, length (overwhelming), zipper-only, bold color, and the overall $$/value comparison. This is a strong "3" rating. Not Bad, Not Good.
This raincoat is very functional, but stylish !! I bought another brand a few days prior and then saw this one at half price from an older line and knew I was going to like it, so keeping both. The other jacket I ordered search ' Gallery hooded Jacket ' As for this rainforest Jacket it's light and perfect for southern calif but still good for cooler spring / summer climates. So stylish and the draw string in back adjust for desired waistline :) I normally wear a medium in jackets but being on sale only had in large and fits perfectly, so you may want to go up a size. Love the length too for those rainy days !! The only thing I would recommend is that they line it for more comfort and clean interior appearance ( w/ out any added filling or would be more of a fall / winter jacket ) is what I'd expect at full price, so consider lining please. I do love everything else about it , stylish , functional and not overly busy as some jackets.
Bright color, short sleeves
Unfortunately, I returned the raincoat because the sleeves were too short for my long arms. I am 6 feet tall, and often have a problem finding coat sleeves that cover my wrists. Otherwise, the raincoat appears to be made well and is a beautiful vibrant green.
Great anorak with style
I ordered in two sizes, med. (my usual size) and large because someone commented that it ran small.
I kept the large.
I love the color, caper, and style. I've received several compliments.
