For those wondering I'm 5'5" and normally wear a 2XL shirt. I bought a 3XL coat in coral to make sure I had room and I still would recommend this sizing up! For women worried about upper arms fitting, mine are pretty big and it fits comfortably. You don't have the problem here where they size up everywhere else BUT the arms. I have full range of mobility. I'm also bigger busted (42 DD) and have wide hips(size 22 pant). The jacket isn't tight on either place and ends just past my butt.
The coat fits perfectly and I even have some room to spare in case I wear a bulky sweater underneath! It's light with several spots to let air in to breathe. The fabric does make a crinkling sound BUT isn't thick and rubbery.
There are a few features I found that no one mentioned! I love all of them but to be better informed they are:
-zipped & fleece lined pockets
-holes under the armpits for breathable air
-a double front zipper
-a cord around the bottom of the jacket to make it fit closer to your body
-same type of clip on the hood
I love this jacket (finally, a hood with drawstrings on a rain jacket!) and my only complaint is the zipper, which sticks and seems very cheap/plasticky. It's not enough to make me return it, not by far. I've been looking for a great rain jacket for probably 4 years, and this is the best I have found!
Update: 10/22/16: I've had this jacket now for a year and I'm changing my review from 4 to 5 stars. The questionable zipper has held up perfectly and the jacket itself is perfect; warm, breathable, not too heavy, and durable. I managed to snag it on a sharp piece of metal and put a tiny hole in it, so I put a very thin layer of clear nail polish over it and it's held just fine, not even noticeable. I plan to buy another, one to keep in my car, and I will probably get the purple or a slightly darker color this time because I'm a bit abusive towards my coats and there are a couple of small dirt marks on this one now. I wholeheartedly recommend this jacket!
Update: July 2019. Still going strong, still love this jacket. I bought another for a change of pace for colors, but really, this one is still fine. I've bought other rain jackets (the pack it in the pocket kind) from Charles River for my husband and daughter, and thoe are great as well. I love this brand.
So my conclusion: it is highly functional in the camping environment, very well made, and cute. Excellent quality and a great look. I am very glad I bought it, and I would highly recommend it.

Delivery was quick and the purpose for which the jacket was bought, a trip to Thailand in the wet season, has not been tested because it did not rain there once! However, it will get plenty of use here in the UK and I am just about to consign its predecessor to the bin.
Love it. Easy to to wear. Keeps you dry. I do find my arms will get wet eventually. It’s rather big. I ordered up a size as other reviewers said to if you wanted to wear a sweater under it and it’s giant on me.
