Flattering & Expensive Looking
November 14, 2010
I just purchased and received the Rambling Rhodie Rain Jacket by Columbia. I am not fan of umbrellas so my raincoat has to be top notch. I LOVE this raincoat and have already worn it several times. I grab it in these cool mornings to act as an extra layer. The cut of the jacket is a little bit slim through the hips which makes it flattering. I am 5'6'' and 130 lbs. I ordered the medium which is perfect. My old raincoat was like a big and boxy, yellow zip-loc bag. The Rhodie is as advertised by providing excellent protection from rain AND wonderful comfort because of the breathable fabric. Great purchase and great price!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, comfortable to wear
Great Product @ a great price!

I got this Jacket for my wife (mothers day). Great product, quality and design. We live down in Costa Rica, and this jacket is perfect for the weather conditions. Lightweight and perfect for rainy days. She even takes it to concerts. Ill recommend this product to anyone. (Columbia rocks). Also, great service and timely shipping from Altrec!
Dancing in the rain
February 22, 2011
The Rhodie Rain Jacket is a great. The color was a little brighter than I expected but I love it. The hood is a little larger to ensure it hangs over the top of my head so the rain doesn't fall in my face. It's very breathable and I wear it on the go most days. The only thing that would have made this jacket perfect would be a waist draw-string! I would definitely recommend this to a friend.Pros: Great value
June 18, 2010
I ordered white,it fits perfect...My girlfriend is jealous and going to order it too :D
Great length and colors!
March 29, 2010
I love the longer length of this jacket. As someone with a long torso, I hate the way most casual jackets hit me at the mid hip length - not very flattering! The green "hummingbird is also a great new color for spring.
So Far So Good:)
December 18, 2010
So far I have only had to wear it once this season & that was the day after I received it. Light weight & love that the rain beads up & rolls right off the jacket. Very comfy. Pockets are deep & warm & when filled they don't make the jacket bulky which is nice. Feminine look with a fitted waist and covers the right places for warmth:) The hood is a little flimsy, but doable. The neck area was in the way at first, but as you wear it, it really is nice. The sleeves are a good length with adjustable snap closure. The pocket that that forms I am not sure about just yet, but to have no velcro on this jacket is great!! VELCRO IS NOT WATERPROOF!! IT ABSORBS WATER. I don't know why the industry hasn't taken velcro out of the picture. I have a size Medium & I am petite & short & it is the perfect size for me. Not able to add layers, but that's ok for me. I look forward to testing this baby out more in the rain...being outdoors for my job dog walking, it is a true pleasure to be dry & warm in the right gear. Thank you Columbia!!Pros: Great value
Lightweight, packable, and comfy!

I bought this jacket for a trip to Japan this past Spring, where it rained during part of my trip. The jacket repelled water for the most part and kept me dry. Because it's thin, you need to wear multiple layers underneath in cold climates. I wasn't a big fan of the hood. It felt flimsy and kept blowing off my head. But the jacket will keep you dry if you're looking for more of a shell. I also like the length, as it shields most of my body.
December 06, 2010
Love this jacket. Made well and durable. I thought the Melon color was really nice in the picture but when I opened the package it looked much better and fresh. The length is great, arm length is perfect too. I would definitely recommend this jacket.
November 15, 2009
It's perfect, but I have trouble keeping the hood on. Probably because I am so short. So I still use an umbrella with it, and now I am extra EXTRA dry when it rains =)
Not as Breathable as I would want
October 11, 2009
This jacket is not as breathable as I would want so I returned it and opted for the more expensive NorthFace Grace jacket.
July 21, 2011
My NEW fav!! I was looking for a rain jacket that was mid thigh an cover my butt, light weight and easy to pack on hike's and was nice enough to walk around casually. Living in Norway, its all about having versatile GOOD gear. Columbia is already a great name in gear and this rain jacket is no exception. Its made well, blocks the wind AND the rain. Fits true to size with a little wiggle room. You can zip it up, snap it up or both. Long enough in the arms (with snaps at the wrist to make it loose or tight) and covers your butt, just perfectly. The hood is not too shallow or too deep and has adjustable cords, along with a little visor. I purchased the Seminole and just fell in love with the color and pink accent. You can't go wrong!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, versatile
May 13, 2009
I have been meaning to buy a new raincoat for years and finally did it. I have been using it for long walks in the park with the dog. I actually bought 2 coats - this Rhodie and a Marmot. I love the Rhodie. It's great in the pouring rain, the hood's adequate, and the length goes just a little bit longer, to the tops of my legs, providing very good & comfortable coverage. I am tall, so length is always an issue for me. My friend also got the same jacket. She's a bit shorter and it looked great on her as well. I usually take a M or L, and I ordered a L and the fit was good. It's not bulky at all, in fact it's pretty flattering, but I'd be able to wear a sweater or light fleece underneath. I got the "Hilltop" green color and it's beautiful in the misty rainy woods. If you're looking for just a nice looking raincoat with a good hood that works well in the rain, I'd recommend this one. I'm happy with the price and Altrec customer service.
Awesome Rain Jacket!
September 21, 2009
I love this jacket! Keeps you very dry and I love the flattering shape.
I love my Jacket
July 17, 2009
I had seen this jacket in a store and tried it on there and absolutely loved it...except for the price. On Altrec.com, including shipping and tax, I saved over $20 versus purchasing it in the store; I love that. This jacket is comfortable, lightweight, and long enough I can sit on it - perfect for wet benches, bike seats, etc. I find myself hoping it will rain some days so that I can wear it more often because it's functional and so cute.
Rain rain go away!
January 23, 2011
Love this jacket. I have had so many compliments on it. The color is beutiful, I go the blue. It keeps me dry every time, in the Northwest rain. comfy too. The hood keeps my hair from getting wet. Love ,love, love it!Pros: Performance, Great value
Exactly what I was looking for!
April 09, 2010
This jacket is a perfect three season walking jacket. The sleeves do run a bit long, but otherwise it's true to size. I am 5'10" 150lbs and the large is perfect...still has room for a layer underneath but fine just with a t-shirt. Love it!!
A great all-around rain coat
October 18, 2010
I was hesitant to order this coat on-line because of the sizing issue some people have had. I'm happy to report that the XL that I ordered fits exactly true to size. The sleeves are long enough, too, which can often be an issue for us taller/larger gals! I was lucky enough to be able to test it out the day after it arrived in a very heavy downpour. My whole body stayed completely dry, even my face because of the wonderful brim on the hood. I love this coat and am looking forward to many more rainy days!Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value
Couldn't wait for it to rain!
April 10, 2010
Love the jacket! As simple as it is, I have received many compliments. Usually wear a large and the large fits perfect.
June 22, 2009
Little bit longer than most jackets. I am 5'2" and hits mid thigh. Does run smaller than the chart indicates-order 1 size up.
A decent raincoat
November 30, 2009
This jacket is well-constructed and looked like it would do the job when you're out in the rain. However, the fit wasn't right for me. I am between sizes, and will look for another on altrec.com. Good company, good service.
July 20, 2009
Love the length. Glad I ordered the large and not the medium. Slim cut in the hip, ample in the chest and arms.
Looks custom made
March 25, 2010
A close examination of manufacturing, feel and fit shows this jacket to be a clear winner.
Good Choice for stylish, yet functional rain jacket
January 03, 2010
Love the jacket - good thing bought a M instead of S - not enough room to layer when your shoulders are broad. Still wish Altrec would honor shipping deals to Hawaii - that is only complaint.
Women's Rambling Rhodie Rain Jacket
November 10, 2010
I was looking for a longer rain jacket, and found this one. It is now my favourite jacket. It fits me perfectly, keeps me dry and warm. I am 178 cm (5 10) and wear a size 28 for jeans and large on top. I have a very athletic body shape, am not very curvy, wearing a size 34DD. The Columbia jacket fits me just perfectly. I can wear a t-shirt and sweatshirt/fleece shirt underneath without a problem. The arms are not too long. The hood fits. There is really nothing for me to complain about. Great jacket for the price! :)
Great rain jacket...perfect length!
June 27, 2009
After searching for quite some time to find a rain jacket of adequate length (I'm only 5'5", but for some reason, many manufacturers feel the need to make small-sized jackets incredibly short!), I finally found this jacket...and I adore it! The hood keeps me dry, and the added length (over comparable jackets from other brands) has really helped in terms of added protection from the elements. Highly recommended!
Not as expected.
April 10, 2010
Coat color was not as advertised, and we could not see how the hood was the least bit 'stowable'. A hangup of mine is noisy fabric and this it was. Finally, I had ordered two different sizes in two different colors. They shipped separately and I called for an RMA (which was not a problem) AND I canceled the second, which WAS NOT YET SHIPPING. Low and behold, the second coat shipped a week+ later and they claimed I had not canceled it. This was resolved.
Stylish...will work on a trail or in a city
December 15, 2009
I wanted a rain jacket that covers by rear and top of my legs. This jacket meets those requirements. I like the color and the hood has a little cap like beak which will give added coverage. The jacket has an a-line cut which makes it a bit dressier looking that the usual rain jacket. It will definitely keep most of me dry.
December 19, 2009
Very nice jacket! They do run a little small, since it is lite weight, choose a larger size for warmer wear underneath. FAST SHIPPING!
May 12, 2010
I am very pleased with how this jacket fits and breaths. It will provide great protection on my trip to India this summer (during Monsoon season!)
Great long length and full coverage!
April 01, 2010
I was looking for a raincoat with a longer length and this rain jacket fits the bill. I ordered a woman's size L in black and was disappointed to find that the jacket runs about 1 full size smaller, so it is best to order the next larger size. I returned the jacket for this reason, so I cannot speak for it's rainproofing ability, yet I did feel that the hood provided a good amount of coverage as well as the sleeves and upper torso portion having a very nice feminine fit. If you are wider in the hips and hour-glassed shaped, definitely order the next size up as this jacket is slender in the hips. It seems like it would be very durable and provide a high level of coverage in any amount of rain.
I love this Jacket!
November 11, 2009
It's really flattering! I got it in White and it looks very chic. I wanted a rain jacket that was long enough to cover most of my body without being too big or bulky. Its very light weight. A great buy! I feel like I'm in Aspen on the slopes when I wear it.
Great Rain Jacket
June 11, 2009
I have along torso so jackets tend to be too short on me. This is perfect. The fit is great, the length is great. It's lightweight and breathable. I love the green color!
November 11, 2010
I ordered the small and it works great for me. I'm 5'5" and about 130 lbs. It's not too tight so I can still wear another sweater or what not underneath for colder days. It's a great jacket for spring and fall. While wearing it during really hot summer days I did get a little hot. The waterproof protection is great. I love how the pockets are fleece lined and that there is an inner zippered pocket to keep stuff safe. I really like the longer length too. I ordered the melon and it's much brighter than the picture. It's very pink. One thing I don't like about the jacket is that the zipper gets stuck sometimes. Overall great jacket. Recommend.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
Attractive yet functional
May 15, 2011
I love this rain jacket. I've had trouble finding rain outerwear that I think is both attractive-looking and functional -- they tend to be functional but very casual looking, or stylish but not that functional (i.e. no hood and just water resistant). This rain jacket has a nice cut and I also love the color (I bought in Seminole). The only issue I have is that I sometimes have trouble with the zipper and need a few tries to be able to zip up (and it sometimes gets stuck when unzipping), but it's a fairly minor nuisance. Just bought this recently, so I can't really speak to its durability, but it seems to be made with excellent quality.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Great rain coat!
October 02, 2009
Bought this for my college daughter in Seattle she loves it and it fit her well. I like the zip pockets great for traveling. I like it so well on her now I am going to purchase one!
excellent choice for spring/ summer
April 25, 2010
great fit, lightweight, and the green is really vibrant and cheerful on a dismal day
Just what I was looking for...
November 10, 2010
This rain jacket is perfect for Oregon downpours. Long enough to cover thighs!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
April 13, 2010
Cute fit. Runs true to size.
December 21, 2009
this was a gift for my daughter since the moment she unwrapped the package she said i love it that fit perfectly and the delivery was on time , thanks.
June 19, 2009
I was looking for something that would keep me dry and look nice doing so, whether I was running errands or meeting a friend for lunch. The slimmer styling has wonderful feminine lines yet more than ample coverage. I am of average height and can see that this would be great also for people who are taller because there is plenty of length in the body and sleeves relative to the body width, which is on the slimmer side. I debated between two sizes and I am glad to have ordered up, because I want it to fit over heavier garments. Love the lightweight fabric, and it is nice to find something with a bit of style that is actually waterproof...and not just water resistant!
Good length, plain, sizing runs small
March 30, 2010
Nice mid-thigh length rain jacket that is very lightweight. Hood fits well, sleeves are long. Runs small, misses should order a size up. Red ibis is not red, but an intense coral-pink, brighter than shown on my screen. Kind of plain but seems to be good quality. Returning it because sizing is off, also color was not as expected. Wish the Arcadia was this length; it's much prettier but also runs small.
It is a nice jacket but...
October 13, 2009
I liked the style, but it is not warm enough for me so I had to return it.
Lined! True to size
April 19, 2010
This is a nice, lined (hard to find) rain jacket. Several reviewers suggested going up a size, but that was bad advice! We had to send back both our jackets for our usual sizes (S for my daughter, M for me). Order your regular size!
Rambling Rhodie Rain Jacket
May 27, 2010
Outstanding product!! Just as described, fits me perfectly!! Thank you!! Will be back!
March 31, 2010
I really like my XS jacket. I was having a hard time finding an XS that had a hoodie that would actually fit over my head (as I'm pretty tall). So the length is nice and the fit is still flattering. I also could do without the white stitching, but otherwise it's a great jacket fashionably. Functionally, it's awesome! Repels rain for sure.
Love this jacket.
April 18, 2010
But the Hummingbird color is not the subdued shown - it is a neon kelly green. Can't get and stay lost in this color. Service excellent, will be back.
June 11, 2010
Light weight, fashionable, very nice jacket
Perfect rain jacket for Seattle rain
November 28, 2009
I received the rain jacket and was so excited- it fits well, is super light weight, and it's a great protection for the Seattle rain. I got it for yard work in the rain and it's so light, it feels like I'm not wearing a rain jacket. I haven't tried it out yet in a heavy squall, but so far very happy with it.
If you're average for your size, buy your usual size
May 24, 2010
I usually wear a medium (like at Express, the Limited, the Gap, Old Navy, or Eddie Bauer -- other brands sometimes run big for the size). However, I ordered a large since I wanted to be able to wear layers underneath. Some reviewers said this fits true to size. Others said they were glad they bought a size up since they planned to wear it with layers underneath. I usually wear a size 8 tops (6 bottoms) or medium but bought a large since I was going to possibly wear some layers. I wear a DD/E cup size naturally and can get by with some large tops. Large was just too big. The arms were too long, and I have long arms. Large was just too baggy overall. I'd recommend buying the size you usually wear. I did find a medium in a store, and that's the size I should have bought. While the cut is somewhat hourglass, the bottom of the jacket is pretty flared making your hips look wider. My shoulders are broader than than my hips are wide. So I wasn't too keen on having the hips look wider than the shoulders even when I tried on the right size. I ended up just returning this and going with a different jacket that didn't have the flared bottom. The jacket itself seemed constructed well and I have no doubt it would have kept me nice and dry.
great lightweight rain jacket
September 18, 2010
love the style and length of this rain jacket. the fit is true to size except the sleeves are a little long. this jacket will be perfect for running errands, travel, and everyday wear. i ordered the seminole color which is a beautiful burgundy-like hue, however, my biggest gripe is the accent threading & pull strings are not the same as the picture provided on the website (white & seminole accordingly). the accents are HOT PINK -- grumble, grumble!!! i'm still deciding if i'm going to keep the jacket just due to this detail, because the styling is nice otherwise.Pros: Great design, Performance
February 27, 2011
This item arrived just in time for a rain storm. Kept me warm & very dry while walking the dogs during the storms. Would definitely recommend this one.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
October 04, 2010
We just moved to the PNW and I needed to ourchase rain gear for our whole family. I love this jacket! It is so comfortable and it is slimming too. Great quality!
Son's girlfriend's Christmas Gift
December 28, 2009
Young ladies can often be very hard to buy for. I bought this jacket for my son's girlfriend -- She loved it. The fit was excellent. The jacket is very stylish and long enough to cover the hips.
Kept me dry!
October 08, 2009
I've only used the rain jacket once since getting it (it's only rained once). But it kept me warm and dry. I really like how it is a bit longer - it's definitely more stylish than any other rain jacket I've had.
Great jacket but sizing does not seem correct
July 03, 2010
I loved this jacket but needed to send it back as was not big enough to wear anything but a tee shirt under. I usually wear a size 12 but the large was very fitted and I needed more room
November 05, 2009
It's nice to finally find a great functioning rain jacket that also looks feminine, too
Just what I was looking for!
April 19, 2010
Fits true to size. Exactly what I was looking for...a stylish jacket that keeps me dry!
Great Rain Jacket, great price
July 24, 2009
I really like my Rambling Rhodie so far. I like the way the hood fits. I can see from side to side. I like the length and the mesh lining. The delivery was on time also.
Love this coat!
December 29, 2010
I wear this almost every day and in really bad weather and it has never failed me. I stay dry and I have it in two different sizes for the really cold days so I can really layer up if I need to.
July 21, 2011
The Columbia Rambling Rhodie Rain Jacket has an attractive style, length and color, however the zipper was very difficult to operate, and the hood is a strange design. I couldn't deal with the zipper, so I returned it. Altrec Customer Service is the best!
This is a very cool jacket.
November 16, 2009
Very pleased with the look and quality of the jacket....love the brown with the white top stitching. The sleeves are a bit long (and they'd be impossible to hem with the pleat and snaps)but it doesn't look bad with a cuffed sleeve.
Not really happy with purchase.
April 09, 2010
Quality was fine, but I did not like the material it was made of -- too crinkly. I returned the jacket. Will still make purchases through Altrec.
I love this jacket
November 30, 2009
I love the jacket from the moment i take it out of the box. I like the material a lot better compare to the North Face the Venture jacket. It feels so much softer and it covers my butt. I have bought from Altrec a few times. They always ship my order fast. The jacket feel pretty true to size. I normally wear XS but as a jacket i ordered a S instead. I have enough room to wear a sweater inside and still look flattering.
July 30, 2010
I loved the quality of this jacket but had to return it due to fit. I am normally a small end size large and this fit way to snug - - definitely could not wear layers underneath.
I love this jacket.
June 09, 2010
This coat is awesome. Breathable, good fit, nice color, and excellent length. It handles the temperate rain forests of BC with no problems. I even wore it ziplining and into the mountains and it kept me dry and cozy. I never felt clammy in it.
November 17, 2009
I was in need of a truly waterproof shell, but I wanted something that I could wear with semi-professional clothing and not look like a goof. This fit the bill. This jacket is also the perfect weight--I could wear it in a summer rainstorm, but I can throw in on over my winter sweaters for a wind/water barrier. The best part is how the jacket unzips from the bottom to give more freedom of motion.
beautiful jacket ,amazingly enough the fit is just about perfect
April 07, 2010
I bought the large . I`m 5'2" and 145 lbs . Except for the sleeves being too long the fit is amazing . On me it is form fitting but fine with 2 layers underneath . I bought the turquoise and it`s gorgeous .Really ,a well made jacket at a great price .
Excellent Rain Coat!
August 20, 2009
I just received this coat today and I love it! I spent a lot of time online hunting for a longer-length rain coat for an upcoming trip to Ireland, and I believe I picked the right one. It's a nice length (hits about mid-thigh-I'm 5'7") and it has a slender cut while still allowing enough room to layer underneath. Also, I ordered a small (I wear a 4 normally) but was worried about the sleeves being long enough, and they are. I love the 2-way zipper and the snaps on the front and at the cuffs (vs velcro that snags on everything). It's fully lined with nylon and mesh (unlike many of it's competitors) and has a hood that fits my head nicely and is adjustable at the sides and in the back. I am very happy with this purchase!
February 03, 2010
I ordered this jacket in the bark color, since I'm a big fan of neutrals. The medium is a perfect fit. The shape is roomy enough to fit a thick sweater or sweatshirt (especially in the sleeves which always seems to be a problem) but the cut is still very flattering. I'm 5'5" and the coat hits right around mid thigh. The only thing I'm not crazy about it the white stitching detail, but that's just being picky. Can't attest to its waterproof capabilities... I don't think I've ever been so excited for it to rain!
