Rain trench with flair!

Runs large. Lots of cute details, great for fall weather. The jacket comes with extra ties and accessories. The belt was great to cinch in since it is oversized.

Great twist on a rain jacket!

I thought the fit was loose and comfortable. There was plenty of room to wear a heavy sweater and still cinch the jacket closed and not have it look too big. It was perfect for a cool rainy weekend in Portland! If you don't want the oversized look and feel I think sizing down is a definite possibility and it will still fit.

Comfy trench

Definitely oversized-I️ initially rented a large and there was no way. The small was still big but much better. Loved the quality and comfort

Cute concept but oversized is an understatement. I was drowning in it and did not wear it.

Too big, super oversized and unflattering.

Shitty Reviews, but I'm in LOVE!!

Yes, this is an oversized coat, but make sure you check for the straps in the bag which are included. Utilize the belt, and all of the cinches included on the sleeves and the tail of the coat to your liking. It is so versatile, I love it!!

Functional and fashionable!

Lots of little details on this great coat, and it really is rain resistant! Fit beautifully, the ribbon belt was a great touch. The collar tie made me super nervous, i just kept it in my pocket because i was terrified it would slip out, but for unpredictable Chicago weather, it would really help you keep the rain out in the hood. Very cute!!

Out of town wedding

I got this piece and promptly returned it. It's well made but even as someone who is 5'10 I feel like The medium was way too baggy. I didn't end up wearing the jacket as I wanted to.

Felt like wearing a sleeping bag

The medium was way too huge - I felt like I was wearing a sleeping bag. But at least the jacket is warmer than it looks.

Nice light raincoat

This is was an okay rental. I liked it. The original belt was missing so they provided two replacements which didn't look as nice. It was comfortable and easy to wear, but ran big, so I sized down.

Fabulous Rain Coat

Despite mixed reviews I like this rain coat. But I can see how it could be overwhelming on some. For reference, I'm 5'7 and you can see how long it is on me. It's not super flattering once you layer a sweater under it, but I liked it open with the belt tied in the back.

Fantastic material but a lot going on with this jacket

First off, the material is amazing. Feels so luxe. However there is a lot going on with this jacket which was a little too long on me at 5'6" and definitely oversized cut. I wanted to love this and thought it would be effortless but it wasn't. Maybe better on someone taller / thinner or if you size down.

Oversize means size down as it's just too much material

The jacket looks great and I really wanted to wear it but even with thick sweaters underneath, the large is just too baggy. It's meant to be oversized but I look lost in it.

Runs Way Large

I didn't even wear this out. It looked like a huge bag on me. Runs large and long. Being 5' tall, this almost came to my ankles.

Wore this for my travels during some chilly days.

Light, flowy jacket... but a bit big. Based on previous pictures, the sleeves were either going to make or break this jacket and unfortunately for me, it did not work out. It scrunched in all the wrong places. The pluses are.... it's a great length and definitely high quality! It came with a few different belts to try which was fun to play with! I am renting another jacket that looks just like this without the sleeves.

cute spring raincoat; XS = a sloppy size 6?

as others have said, this is so gigantic that it's nearly unwearable. That said, I live in Portland, OR and a spring raincoat is a must even in May and June. I'm 5'1 and a size 2. The XS in this is still just a smidge too big to wear over work clothes. It looks OK on the weekend over a sweater, but even in the XS at my size it looks like I'm wearing my dad's clothes. Part of that is the style and part of that is the styling of the sleeve. It's a beautiful cut and material, and if I were a bigger person the XS would work well.

Took everyone's advice and sized down.

Great cut, beautiful sleeves, great if you are hourglass shape (jackets are hard for us!) Unfortunately I need for a trip. The belt (it comes in a separate bag) I suspect may not be the original, the color is off. And the belt accent around the collar is MISSING completely. Tried "Chat Now With Us" in Help Section - during stated hours and I waited a while = no response. There is time to ship me another one but I can't get any help.

Just meh.

I wanted to love this. It is super thin and not for cold weather, but it has a nice lining in the pockets so you don't freeze to death. It is a lot of work to get it right. Too many straps, drawstrings, etc and it was just ok. It runs large. I wore it once and dumped it in the drop box.

It was fine, just fine.

The coat was an odd length. It made me look short and I'm 5'9". The coat did work lovely to protect me from the rain that I dealt with the evening I wore it. The coat was light and easy to stuff away while at a restaurant, then bar. It was fine coat. It just didn't make me ooo and ahhh.

Brought this along for a work event outside because the weather report suggested rain.

This jacket runs extremely large but with the belt you are able to create shape by cinching the waist.

Stylist Review

I love the color of the jacket. It runs true to size. It will keep you dry in the rain but also keep you in style! I also like that it comes on other colors. The pockets are huge so they can carry a lot. The belt was not included with my jacket.

What a fab jacket

I wore this all the time. Like every day. Loved it. HOWEVER I did not receive the belt pictured on the model, I received to smaller, thinner belts that were very hard to keep connected and fastened, which was really annoying. Fucking great jacket though.
