Right As Rain Jacket
Help with bike grease removal
I just bought this jacket and I love it. I especially love the bottom up zipper that allows me to bike in this coat. Unfortunately, the only colour available was the light cream and after a couple short rides, I've managed to get bike grease all over the coat. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can get it off?

Worth the money
I've been looking for a rain coat for several years and decided to splurge when I saw this one come available. I'm usually a size 4 or 6, and went for a 6 in the coat. (5'3", 120 lbs). It's a bit big, but I wanted to be able to wear a Scuba under it if it was a bit chilly. If I had purchased the 4, I don't think I would have been able to.
Over all I'm happy with the coat and have no complaints. I'm sure it will last me for well over 10 years. Only problem is now I want it in the cream color as well. :)

Great rain coat
I thought I would finally write a review of a lulu item since I read countless reviews online before I make a new purchase. I am 5ft 5 and 120 pounds with a 32C. I was back and fourth between a 4 and a 6 since many reviews mention that the jacket is rather tight in the shoulders and that you should order a size up. I finally went with my regular 4 and I am glad that I did. I would even go as far to say that the 4 is a touch big on me. I ordered in the darker color and the hardware matches the jacket just fine. I have also had no trouble with the zipper working. I also find the jacket to be weather resistant, which some reviewers mentioned they had trouble with. Happy with this purchase!

Can't wait for it to rain!
Just got this today in the Plum colour and LOVE IT! I had it delivered to my office and was getting compliments on it as I was taking it out of the bag... with the receptionist saying she couldn't believe how soft it was while she was touchy-feeling it!
Yes, the sleeves are a tad long, but a half roll up and it looks like they now have a cuff and are the perfect length. Deep, fuzzy pockets are great too. TTS with my usual 10 and I can fit a Post Practice Cardi underneath for extra warmth on chilly days without it being too tight.
Not sure how I'm going to take it off before bed lol! It's pricey, but also an investment in me, so totally worth the splurge... I'll wear this for many years to come, don't hesitate!!

Great jacket, bad trims
I was so excited when this jacket was being offered in cashew. It would be perfect for work and weekends. However, when the jacket arrived with coppery colored zipper pulls and gold colored logos I was extremely disappointed. The two do not go together. The jacket should have had either gold trims or copper trims. Unfortunately after all this waiting the jacket will be returned.

Yaay, I found my spring coat!
I have been searching everywhere, trying to find a spring coat/raincoat. I purchased quite a few, including the Arcteryx Codetta which is over $300, and was not overly impressed so I sent them back. I finally got a hold of the "Right as Rain" Jacket and it hit the mark in every way. I love the large hood and the fact that it has a cinch on the back to tighten it up and hold it on in wind. I also love the feminine fit with a cinch at the waist and that it's longer in the back. The material is so nice, not cheap-feeling at all, and it has a beautiful lining inside, and a double-zipper. They thought of everything, even the fuzzy surface inside the top of the zipper so it feels nice on your face! I bought a size up because I have more developed shoulders and back and found my usual size was a bit snug in this area. I recommend that if you regularly do weights or work out your upper body, size up.

Ordered this jacket yesterday and it arrived today. The purple is really a nice color. The coat is just super cute and comfortable. I am between an 8-10 and ordered the 10. Its perfect. A bit of extra room for sweaters under but perfect. The sleeves are a little long though. I may get them altered at the store. Overall, very pleased. Would recommend strongly.

I LOVE THIS COAT!!
I bought the navy color in the fall. I've worn it though the coldest and snowiest Boston winter. It is comfortable true to size. I'm typically an 8 but LuLu stuff runs small on me so I ordered a 10. It is a bit big but that has been perfect for the winter. I get so many compliments on the jacket. It is without a doubt my most favorite coat. I am contemplating another color for Spring?buy it, wear it, love it!!

I was very excited to the spring line of lulu this spring (actually, mostly it was winter since it was still so cold out!) I ordered the Fo Drizzle jacket, thinking it was going to be the answer to all my spring coat problems. It was nice, but not $200 worth of raincoat. Fortunately, I was traveling somewhere with a Lulu store so I was able to go in and return the Fo drizzle, and decided to try on this jacket at the store- I'm so very glad I did! The cut is phenomenal--- something that I just know that I'll be wearing for 10+ years. I finally got to wear it yesterday and today because it was warm enough, an I had several people compliment me on it already :)
The only improvement I could suggest would be to extend the fleece from the neck all the way through the coat

Perfect Rain Jacket!!!
I'm 5'7", 147 pounds and fluctuate between 10 and 12's in jackets (depending on room I want). I ordered the 12 and am very pleased. I could have sized down but prefer a roomier fit, so I can wear layers underneath, and still have breathing room. Love the drawstring in the back, the length and the hood. Just overall great jacket for our rainy season here in Northern CA.
