Right As Rain Jacket
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!!

Love the this coat but....
I have 2 of the previously Apres Jackets from YEARS back, and I wanted to replace it with a more weather resistant jacket. I LOVED this jacket and the colours but the fit is so strange. The length and style is great, but the shoulders and so strange. If I sized up, the shoulders were TIGHT and I was swimming everywhere else in the coat. Sadly, my dreams of having this coat is over....as it got returned. TOTAL BUMMER!!!!!

Looks great but....
This jacket looks really amazing. Great fit and length. I'm usually between a 6 and 8, and went with the 8 so that I can layer in colder weather. BUT I wore it for the first time in the rain a few days ago and I really found that the water droplets accumulated on the coat, making me substantially colder than I should have been. I was quite disappointed because I really broke the bank for this one! I went inside and got my front hallway soaked because there was so much water on it. My old raincoat (not a lulu) allowed the droplets to roll off nicely which I miss.
I'll be wearing this coat because of the great look, but when it's raining I'll go back to my old one.

Love this jacket
Bought this jacket a couple months ago in I love it. However, the zipper is almost impossible to zip up, it's a fight now everytime I put it on. I think it's only a matter of time before it completely breaks....again, I do love this jacket :)

Love the jacket!
I just got the fuel green color in stores and it is absolutely beautiful, I don't know why it hasn't sold out yet!! I am normally a size 6 on top and this fits well. I essentially found it to be a bit too big but after trying on the 4, I did not have enough space in my upper torso. My shoulders and chest felt super tight (and I am NOT muscular at all), so I put the 6 back on and thought hey, it's totally fine, I'll be layering long sleeves and thicker tops underneath anyways. I am 5'10 and it covers my bum and then some which is perfect for when it's pouring out.

Not for broad shoulders
I ordered both a size 6 and 8 after reading all the reviews. I usually take a 6 in most Lulu things.
I am 5'10" tall, 135 lbs., my shoulders are a bit broader than average but not linebacker-ish. I am a 34b.
The size 6 fit great everywhere but the shoulders. It was snug when I tried it on with a tee shirt and because I really want to be able to wear it with a sweater, it didn't work. I then tried on the size 8. I was swimming in it! Everywhere - in the arms, body, sleeves, etc...
I tried but they're both going back.
The quality, weight and color (light gray) were great.

love this jacket but...
I love this jacket, it is perfect in every way BUT the zipper jams every single time I do it up. I bought this jacket 2 years ago and have had the zipper replaced 4 times it is so frustrating!
