The first time I wore this jacket, it was raining and it did what is was suppose to do and repelled the rain. I absolutely love this jacket, as it feels like your wearing a very expensive jacket but paid a very good price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tinkermouse Keeps me dry!
I'm in California so I'm not in an area that gets alot of rain, but last winter we finally started getting some rain and I decided to buy myself a raincoat that wasn't real pricey.
I bought the orange and I'll admit that hindsight makes me wish I'd just bought a more neutral color (the orange is REALLY bright) but it's fun and it meets its purpose. I agree with other reviews that it is not warm - it's not meant to be. It's meant to keep us dry! And that it does.
On cold rainy days I wear it over my regular coat. Buy a size larger if you plan to wear it over your warm coat.
Because I bought it larger to wear over a coat the hood is too big, so I fold it back around my face. Makes the cute lining visible!

It's a pretty green and comfortable but in cold rain it's not warm at all. It needs to have a lining that helps you stay warm.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ChynnaBlue Lovely jacket, but sizing is a problem
I ordered this as a TSV in the size I bought in a Susan Graver coat and it was much too small across the back and shoulders, but I forgot to return it on time. My bad! But then I didn't need a coat because it was too warm for one, anyway. This fall, I came back to see if I could find one in the next size up and I was thrilled to see it with an "as is" price, so I picked it up. It came packaged with the "as is" disclaimer. Thank you to the lovely QVC shopper who returned it in perfect condition and I love my new jacket. It is still a little snug around the back and shoulders, even though this one is in my regular QVC size, but nothing I can't live with considering how infrequently a light jacket is needed where I am. It's either too warm for a jacket or cold enough to need a heavier coat and there's not a lot of in-between weather.
Note: I see some people have said this coat was too big and others, like me, have said it is too small. Seems like there's an issue with sizing and quality control. I would not recommend this as a gift because of the sizing issues, which is too bad, as it is a lovely coat.

Wonderful weather jacket. Thrilled to death over it. Outer repellent material is soft to touch, nice deep pockets, very comfortable, Vibrant true color. So flattering I have received comments from total strangers. My first, and wont be my last purchase from this designer
Rated 4 out of 5 by Abweeta So may compliments
I have gotten so may compliments on this jacket. I feel cheered up every time I put it on, a wonderful antidote to a rainy day.

The turquoise color was lovely but the hood was HUGE, falling over my eyes. ( I will have to put darts in to wear.) Even with a hat underneath it is huge. There should have been an extra snap or two down the front. I feel the designer really "cut corners" on this coat. I should have sent it back. Needless to say, this is my first and LAST Dennis Basso. I will stick to Bob Mackie (all top quality) or go to Land's End.

Simply love this jacket. Ordered in the teal/turquoise color when it was TSV. Lots of compliments to date! I ordered in the large and found it roomy but not overwhelming. If ever comes back as TSV will order in another color :-)
