    BUY THIS! Great product!, March 8, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    As a college student, I wanted a reliable, lightweight jacket to use when it’s raining, when it’s windy, and when temperatures are mild. This jacket is perfect for all three. It is completely resistant to rain. My one complaint would be that the hood does not stay on as well as I would like. This problem is easily remedied by bringing along an umbrella as extra protection. I also like using this jacket as an outer layer to my other fleece jackets. It does a great job of keeping in the warmth and blocking out wind. Wearing this jacket over a fleece or other jacket functions well as a winter combination and keeps me very warm in cold/snowy/icy conditions. Finally, I also wear this jacket when I need something light to wear when temperatures are mild (not warm enough to go without a jacket but not cold enough to wear a fleece or something else that’s too warm), at night, and going to and from the gym. Sometimes, however, wearing this jacket can get a little too warm. I sometimes find myself starting to sweat, so I guess it’s not too breathable. Then again, I have not tried unzipping the underarm/side ventilation slits, which I am sure would remedy this problem! Anyway, this jacket is multifunctional, looks GREAT, works phenomenally, and is a fantastic price! I absolutely love it and would recommend it. The sizing is also good. I am 5’6″ and 130 pounds and the medium I bought is perfect, even when layering in the winter.

    More affordable than the North Face Resolve, June 5, 2013
    By 
    HKoldtimer (St. Louis, MO, US) –

    I bought both the Columbia Arcadia and the North Face Resolve at the same time as gifts for my mom and younger sister, respectively. They are very similar rain jackets. I thought it may be helpful to do some comparisons:

    [Fabric & Overall Quality – EVEN]
    The 2 jackets feel the same in terms of fabric quality and thickness. These are rain jackets and so there is no insulation whatsoever.

    [Construction and Attention to Details – Advantage: Arcadia]
    Both jackets are mesh-lined in the torso area (but not inside the sleeves), both have 2 zipped front pockets and Velcro tabs along the front zipper flap.
    Features only the Arcadia has: one zipped and mesh-lined inside pocket to the left, Velcro-adjustable sleeve openings, Velcro-adjustable hood (on the back side of the hood when you are wearing it) and mesh-lined hood.
    Features only the Resolve has: double-flapped front zipper (for extra rain protection), stowaway hood (fold and store in a Velcro-lined compartment on the outside of the collar) and fleece-lined inside collar.

    [Fit – Depends]
    The Arcadia has half-inch longer sleeves and three-quarter of an inch longer torso. The Resolve is more of a slim-fit and athletic cut, which should look better on a skinny person. My wife is a petite, 5-3 person and she weighs 110 lbs. The Resolve fits her well without feeling tight at all and still has room for a fleece shirt inside, except that the sleeves are way too long (she said they are good for hiding one’s hands if it’s too cold!). Length-wise the Resolve is able to cover the whole back pockets of a regular fit denim my wife was wearing. I would expect the Arcadia to be even longer than that. In retrospect I should have gone for an XS with the Arcadia instead. That’s the agony for ordering online. One tip: those You Tube product videos showing the height and weight of the models are really helpful to let people make better judgment on which size to order.

    [Price and value – Advantage: Arcadia]
    The Resolve has an MSRP price tag of $ 90 verses the Arcadia of $ 65. I paid full price for neither of them. %) If I were the end-user I would have picked the Arcadia to save a few bucks.

    [Color – Depends]
    I bought the Mojito Green for the Resolve, which is a bright and close to fluorescent color that an active and young person may like. As for the Arcadia I got the Hillside, which has a green/white color-block pattern like the navy/white one Amazon carries. The green color is softer but not too dull (think hunter green).

    All of the above comparisons are based on the features. I’m sure most of the reviews you can find for both jackets would tell you that they are superb choices for their water resistance and breathability.

    Great Rain Jacket, December 13, 2010

    This jacket has been great. It keeps the rain out leaving me completely dry. The only complaint I would have to say about this jacket is that towards the waste it’s a little bit tighter compared to the rest of the jacket.
