Right As Rain Jacket
Love this rain jacket!
I needed a rain jacket for the fall/spring seasons that wasn't too heavy and would keep the rain out, and knew this was the one when I saw it at my local lulu. I bought it in the cranberry color and have gotten so many compliments on it. I haven't had a problem with the zipper and actually like the ribbon ! Gives you a great silhouette (I'm 5'2, approx 105lb). It's a bit pricey, but I know this will be my go-to rain gear for years to come.

Fits larger - great for layering!
I bought the jacket in fuel green and am in LOVE with the silhouette, quality, price and color. The jacket runs larger, however it's meant to be layered. I pair my Eddie Bauer Astoria Hooded Down Parka with the jacket and it aligns perfectly (on the bottom) with the Right as Rain jacket. The hood is big enough for my big ponytail.
I do not feel that the fit is "slimming," but the jacket still looks great!!!
The pockets are deep so I can stow all my belongings and not have to carry my purse around.
This is my favorite lulu purchase yet!!!

Beautiful Fitting and Color!
Got the fuel green and what a beautiful color! The fitting is perfect and very feminine! I love the longer length in the back and long sleeves. I have not yet put the coat to the test in a rainy day. I am 105 lbs, 5' and got a size 4 which gives me tons of room for layering as this jacket is NOT warm, definitely need to wear thick sweater underneath for cold and rainy days!! I was not planning on buying this jacket when I went to the store, but after trying it on, I fell in love, plus I got it for 40% off, I do not think it is worth it USD198.

In love... Minus one flaw
Like everyone else on here, the zipper is seriously straining the love I have for this jacket and the only thing stopping me from buying another. I love my Bordeaux version so much but the zipper is an ordeal every time I go to put this on or take it off (everyday). Fix this issue for the next run please!!

The jacket is great but it's useless if you can't zip it up. I spend 5 mins trying to get the zipper started and most of the time I just give up. The jacket is nice but seriously useless if it won't zip up for rainy days.

I received this jacket yesterday I am very pleased with it looks amazing on, I did size up to an 8 usually wear a size 6 glad I did am able to layer under it if I want to and cinch up if not. The zipper I found to be fine I believe some issues others have had is due to the fact it is seam sealed therefore does not work quite the same as a normal zipper but find it goes up and down no problem. I would recommend this coat love the big hood no need to carry umbrella and the fact you can cinch it to where you want it. The sleeves are long but I like that as you can tuck your hands up into sleeve and also when I put my arms out they are still covered. Love this coat it was fortunate to find a size 8 online was the one and only one so guess was meant to be. I would highly recommend this coat is a good staple to have especially with our West Coast weather :)

great jacket.. needs a few updates
awesome jacket and color (bordeux)! This is a nice piece to have in one's closet.
however the zipper is horrendous! the zipper pull is tacky and ruins the overall look of the jacket. Also, jacket is a little snug under the arm, but not a big deal.
It would be nice if the jacket was fleece lined like the lulu rain jackets from the mid 2000's were~ especially for the extra warmth. Don't know why lulu got rid of the fleece lining!?
All in a great jacket, just needs a few updates to make it perfect! :)

Could be better
I like everything about the jacket except for the zipper. The zipper is JUNK.

Really like this jacket!
I was skeptical about this jacket and honestly after ordering had plans to return it. It arrived today and I really like it, will NOT be returning this one! The shoulders are a little tighter, but I think that is a part of the charm..fitted on top and roomier on the bottom. I am really tall, so the length is great. I usually only buy down puffer jackets, as we live in the high Rockies, but found that I needed a thinner waterproof layering piece after I stood in the rain and watched my son play football all season. I also will enjoy this on my afternoon walks in the mid season, when a heavy coat would be too much. It is super cute with leggings and boots. I have the fuel green and the color is beautiful. Don't hesitate to buy this color. As for the zipper, it is a taped zipper, which is what you want on this type of coat. Which means that water won't leak through. Taped seaming is what all high end outdoor companies use on this sort of item. I don't see any problems when looking at it, nice brand of zipper, etc. Lulu, if I have trouble with it, will you exchange, as I am sure you would do...your customer service is great. Don't hesitate to buy this ladies! Really nice! And SOOOO functional!!
