Love love love!
I actually LOVE how big this rain hoodie is! It fits me how I want it too perfectly! You have enough room to layer underneath if it's cold. I wear a 2x to be over sized to wear with leggings and that's the size I ordered. I am about 225 pounds 38-40DD size bra and kind of broad shouldered and bigger arms. I think if I would have ordered an XL it would have been hard for me to get it over my head. If the hoodie is too long you can pull the tie at the bottom to make it smaller. If u don't like oversized I would order a size smaller.

Good quality but runs big
This does do the job of blocking out wind and keeping you protected from the elements, but it is waaaay too big! I ordered a large (the size I normally wear), and I'm swimming in this! I like things to fit but to not be tight, but this is rediculous. The only reason I did not return it was because I was only planning on wearing it when I exercise, but now I wish I had gotten it much smaller. It fits maybe 2 to 3 sizes too big.
The good: the green is nice and bright and the pockets are great!

This Jacket is a winner!
The material is softer than I expected! To make things even better, this jacket is lightweight and it kept me warm. I'm very pleased with my purchase. Also, I normally buy XL tops in women wear to make sure it fits my arms. I purchased this jacket in a size Large and I still had room to wear a sweater underneath.

Okay if you like girly colors
I haven't worn it yet, but I trust everyone who says this works great for wind and rain.
HOWEVER, the sleeves are ridiculously long, 6 or 7" too long, so that they cover my entire hand. I will have to hem this to be able to wear the jacket. If you hate to sew (I like it), consider this fair warning.
A second issue: This version has such girly colors. Try this slightly different product by the same company: "Women's Ultra Light Pack-N-Go Pullover - Available in Many Colors." I wish I had found it before ordering this.

Hi I love the jacket & the material
Hi I love the jacket & the material. I am 5 ft 5 in with chest size 42G (dress size 18W) and the XL is easy to get on & off. Ironically, I needed the XXL in the traditional full-zip. In jackets such as this I would normally buy a mens XL or womens XXL. I used my bust measurements (add 3 inches in the event a sweater will be worn) to decide on which size would be best. Hope this helps.

Perfect For Central America!
Getting ready to go to Central America & I know that it's going to be raining. All of my other pull overs are either too bulky or would be way too hot. I've ordered Charles River Apparel in the past & haven't regretted it one bit. This pullover was my first go-to. I received it the next day via AlumiGogo Prime. Love this light weight pullover. I'm normally a size small, however, I ordered up a size as I wanted it to be a bit roomy. I'm glad I did, because the fit is perfect! I'm a big fan of Charles River Apparel. The brand is well made & lasts forever.

Perfect for our upcoming trip to hike the Cascades
PLEASE read all of the reviews that talk about sizing. This item runs large. I am somewhere between a medium and a large, generally getting a large in a pullover like this, intending to wear it as a waterproof layer over a sweatshirt or sweater. I read the reviews and opted for a medium.
It's still pretty big, but in a good way. The sleeves are long, yet the elastic keeps them in place above my wrists. But if my hands get cold while hiking? I can pull them down and over for extra warmth. And I definitely have room for a large sweater/sweatshirt underneath, in case it is needed for warmth.
It's got an elastic pull with a toggle at the waist to pull that in if you like. Same on the hood - you can secure it on your head. Zippered pocket for secure storage AND kangaroo pockets on the front.
Look at the model. That's how mine fits. A bit boxy, but totally cute if you ask me. And practical. Yes, it's lightweight. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE. Buy it as a top layer for the hood and waterproofing and I will be STUNNED if you are not happy.
At this price I want to go back and buy every color. But as my husband would say, "How many windbreaker pullovers (or insert any other item I am obsessed with at the time) do you truly need? Well, need and want are different discussions, and I WANT this one in every color. :-)
I have no earthly understanding of the one star reviews.

It fits well & doesn't make me look like a giant blob
I ordered a size down from my normal size due to the reviews and that was very helpful!
It fits well & doesn't make me look like a giant blob.
I'm 5'1" so the sleeves are bunched up on me, but I would recommend for ladies who are bigger.
I weigh 180lbs & carry my weight in my tummy region, have a 40D chest. The L fit well.
I would size up to my normal XL size if I wanted a thick layer underneath.

Not form fitted, so liked it, perfect for hiking
I am usually a L/XL, read the reviews & ordered an L in the coral. Very happy with purchase, price, fit. Roomy enough for a sweatshirt under it. I bought it for hiking walks with the dog, and the bright color serves a dual purpose. The front pocket that is not very flattering, is most functional, especially with that big pocket to put your hands in. The coral color is more a pink coral rather than an orange coral. All in all, very pleased.

like it, but runs big! keep that in mind!
Nice lite quality material. It is a bit large. I normally wear a small and the small is very roomy on me, but I will keep it, as I am using it while hiking. It will give me plenty of room and coverage if I should encounter any rain. Conveniently packs away when not in use!
