Patagonia Women's Larissa Jacket
You need more than beauty to handle beastly weather; the Women's Larissa Jacket from Patagonia knows this. It comes armed with technical performance storm fabric for nasty conditions. The all-recycled, 2-layer polyester fabric has a waterproof/breathable H2No barrier and is treated with a Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) to shed rain and sleet; the interior taffeta lining slides easily over layers. The lightweight raincoat features a shorter trench style and feminine front princess seams for an urban aesthetic. Hidden front snaps lend a clean finish: You can snap the jacket all the way to cover your neck and seal out weather, or wear the lapels open for additional style. Other features include two front zippered on-seam pockets and an attached belt at the waist. Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.

Sylin' on Rainy Days!
I love this raincoat! I ordered a small, I typically wear a size 4 and this is a perfect fit to wear with a blouse or a long sleeve tee. However, I wouldn't recommend it with a sweather as it would be too bulky and uncomfortable. It looks great with jeans or slacks.

Great, packable rain coat
I bought this for my wife, who is 5'2" and small build. It fits very well, although it gets tight with much layering. Consequently, for someone of similar size, it may not work for cold, winter rains. That said, it looks great, repels rains very well for the type of cloth it is, and packs into a very small ball (about a pop can). The price was also great. We're taking it to London next month and it should do very well. I can't speak to the durability as we just got it last week, but Patagonia usually does a good job on quality and durability.
