Womens Cascade Jacket (#100054)
Great jacket, just what I was looking for
Just got it today so I have yet to try it out but I already love it. I'm petite so I ordered a small and it was just a little big on me. The small works great for me though because I can wear a hoodie underneath but still comfortable if I don't. I'm 5'3' and about 135 pounds if a comparison is needed.

All around, a great jacket!
This jacket is perfect! It is lightweight, warm (but not too warm), waterproof, and wind proof. I like to layer and to have the option to throw up a hood. The jacket is roomy enough to wear a sweatshirt underneath, but a nice fit without as well. I am long waisted, and I don't have any problem with the length of the coat. I expected it to be the same material as the Men's Waterproof Breathable Jacket, but it is not. I was concerned at first, but after wearing it I wouldn't return this jacket for anything!

This is not the same jacket they sold 2 years ago. The outer material is not as good. :( but other than that I love everything about it.

Buyer beware: Carhartt makes a mens' jacket out of a different, much better nylon fabric. They used to make a womens' jacket out of the same material, item #WJ002 - Carhartt Women's Waterproof Breathable Jacket. Carhartt has since discontinued this jacket, and now makes two very similar jackets with the same material, similar names, but different fabric types that are more typical of common windbreakers. There's this one, #WJ019 - Women's Women's Downburst Waterproof Breathable Jacket, and also #100054 - Women's Cascade Jacket. As many people who own the original jacket (including myself) have noticed, the new jackets are nowhere near as good as the original one (#WJ002). I have complained to Carhartt about this. I explained to them that the original jacket earned raving 5-star reviews, and the new ones are getting a lot of negative reviews, especially by people that loved the original one. Carhartt was very responsive and told me that their womens' line changed frequently due to customer reviews. I can only hope that they will re-continue the Waterproof Breathable Jacket in the future.
