Ilse Jacobsen

Ilse Jacobsen Logo
When living near the water as Ilse Jacobsen does, waterproof footwear is a necessity. Tired of bad smelling PVC rubber boots and raincoats, Ilse Jacobsen wanted to create a stylish, functional, and comfortable rainwear collection for activities in both urban and suburban settings.

The rubber boots are made of 85 percent pure, natural rubber. Each boot consists of 27 individual parts and are assembled by hand which makes it a very slow process; nevertheless, this very process gives each boot its unique appearance. The boots are lined with cotton-fleece and have a heat insulating innersole which makes them both warm and comfortable to wear in any weather.

Ilse Jacobsen raincoats eschew the outdated, rubber rain slicker for a jacket with a more modern silhouette and rainproof protection. These jackets utilize a bonded softshell with a warm, inner fleece layer and a waterproof, breathable softshell outer that is treated with a DuPont(R) Teflon(r) coating that brings waterproof protection into the modern era.

Since the company was founded in 1993, the design philosophy has been based on Scandinavian simplicity, embracing comfort, elegance, and femininity in fine balance with modern urban living communicating the lifestyle of Ilse Jacobsen.

I LOVE these boots! I received these as a birthday present from my mother in law in November and I’ve worn them many, many times. I wear them to watch my kids’ sporting events, which are outside in usually terrible conditions. The felt lining and platform keep my feet warm. I had an Achilles issue and had to keep my ankles slightly elevated at all times. With their slight heel, these boots were incredibly comfortable. I wish they came in leather so I could wear them to the office!

These shoes are incredibly comfortable! I feel like I’m walking on clouds. I have a narrow heel and there is no slippage whatsoever. I wear a size 10 and the 41 is a perfect fit. Plus they are as cute as they can be.

I love the design and color of this coat, but the material is a little stiffer than I anticipated and the XL, really extra large! I don't see many other stylish really waterproof options, so may order a size smaller even though I wish it was lighter.

I love the style of this coat and the trim fit which also allows for a thin jacket or sweater underneath. The biggest problem however is that the lining is quite thin and the outer fabric, though completely waterproof is also somehow a bit rubbery feeling and seems to actually ATTRACT the cold, so that I was quite chilled within moments of going outside in it while visiting Scotland and England during an unseasonably cold and wet spring in 2018. I'm going back to Scotland for another 10 days at the end of March and am here on Zappos looking for a new coat that will keep me both dry AND warm.

European sizing. I looked on the very top horizontal line of size chart and noticed my bra size of 38. I ordered a 42. Will be a loose fit over a tee shirt and snug with a chunky sweater. Blue Grayness color is exactly as pictured. Fabric is supple and lightweight and I have been completely dry wearing it. Hood does not detach, fits well, good coverage with unobstructed view. Love the length, covers my butt. Sleeves are wonderfully long with a snap should you choose to make it fit snug at the wrist. NOTE: there is no zipper or flap over pockets and pockets not roomy/deep enough for my smart phone or keys and no way to keep those items secure. Otherwise, I love it! So happy with this well fitting, feminine, stylish, waterproof, keep you dry rain slicker!

I absolutely love this shoe. We are going on a trip to Africa and will be doing a lot of walking when we tour. These are so comfortable I have worn them around the house to make sure. Nothing is rubbing nothing is pinching they feel almost like a slipper :-)

I wrote the review from Santa Barbara. We've been having some awful weather, and I still stand by my review - great coat. I still hate the DOG COLLAR, and I don't understand why Ilse Jacobsen doesn't change it. I've been meaning to go to a fabric store, and today when I put the coat on, I realized the dog collar had gone through the loops, which attach it to the coat and the hood was on the floor - thank goodness I didn't lose it. Anyway, this is my recommendation - buy some braid for tiebacks for curtains in the shade of your coat. I got some today - not as fat as I want, but it will do the job and is a great improvement on the dog collar. See below - put a knot in each end and you're set - no dog look any longer, and you won't lose your hood. Still a GREAT COAT!!!!

I ordered this rain coat for my grand daughter who is extremely hard to please and I was rewarded with her response, "It is cute and I received 2 compliments the first day I wore my coat." She enjoys wearing the coat even when it is not raining because she stays warm and feels stylish. I selected a size 6 and the fit is perfect and she can still layer warm clothes under neath her coat. She is 6 ft tall and slim like athletic build. The purchases was a success and best of all she will stay dry and warm. Great coat! We love it.

I have looked for quite a while for a rain and wind-proof coat that is actually knee length and has the style to be a city coat as well as a more active wear coat. This is the one. As a Seattleite, I walk in the rain. The cut of most shells means wet thighs. Not so with this length. The quality of the fabric and construction is excellent. I was not sure how true the fit would be, as I knew I would be layering under the coat, but the 12 was just right, which is my regular size. The sleeves are over-long, but that can be managed by re-hemming or turning them up. As with many hoods I've worn, this one is tall enough to fall over my eyes. I will add a snap closure or something to adjust that. It would have been a good feature to add some adjustability. It seems to be an issue with most manufacturers of outerwear, but that's the only reason this coat didn't get full stars. Note: The photos of the "Army" color are the wrong coat. The black coat photos show the true length. I'm happy with this coat and will be wearing it for many years.

I got a 4 (the smallest size) - I weigh about 103 and am 5'6". It's big and roomy, but amazingly fits me well around the shoulders. It leaves a lot of room to wear stuff underneath, which you need if it's cold outside and NOT summer rain storm. It's well made, great zipper with closing over top so rain doesn't get in, great sleeve closure with grommet so rain doesn't get in, great hood, which doesn't fall down, and great construction - well made. The only thing I can say negative thing about is that after taking the coat off and on many times, the grommets hold so well that eventually they might tear out. I don't know b/c it will take some wear and tear, but that's what I think will happen. Nonetheless, I would still buy it again without any reservations. The main thing I DON"T LIKE is the dog collar that attaches the hood - it's ugly, hideous, and doesn't fit with the style of the coat at all. I plan on buying the same color cording (perhaps the same cording you see holding back curtain), and taking out the dog collar and using it. Unfortunately, you have to use it until you replace it b/c it holds on the collar. The color is a rose color - I wanted the red, but it was sold out across all sites. I like the rose, but would have liked a brighter more vibrant color that can be seen i.e. bright orange or a slicker yellow. I bought it to walk my dogs when it's raining in Southern California, and they just have to go - I love it and it works great!

This is a gorgeous exceptionally well made jacket! The color is Burgundy (called Eggplant) and would have kept for the color alone but the jacket just did not fit my 5'2" frame and had to return. I'm buying this for travel and a comfortable fit is a must for me. Highly recommend otherwise.

Fit was fine but this is a raincoat that could not be disguised as anything else. Awkward “neck belt” to hold hood in place. I ordered the “Canyon Rose” color which was a dull, muted color. Not the right raincoat for me.

This jacket is very soft, and relatively warm. Would be good for a mall walk, or car ride. Returning because of the overall boxy fit. Wish it offered at least slight waist definition.

This trench is light, sleek, stylish and would be a 100% keeper except I received it without the strap that attaches the hood to the coat. Oops! I will reorder with the hope that the trench is complete.

i usually wear a petite xs and the 34 fit very well. the fabric is very stiff and it looks way more sophisticated than a rain slicker. and the fact they really thought through details like making sure water can't seep through the zippers is very cool since most city-style raincoats are water resistant rather than waterproof. the references to the brushed fleece and warmth retention are a bit misleading. this raincoat would work for spring or fall, but it is not a warm raincoat or a winter raincoat.

Love the rain coat - the material feels great and it is a nice length to protect the legs. It runs large - no way am I really a 40 - probably more like 42, but that's okay as long as you know.

Awesome!! This raincoat does EXACTLY what I need it to do - keeps me DRY, even when it’s raining sideways. It’s a rubbery fabric and waterproof. Very lightweight - no real lining but perfect for layering. Generous fit - it’s not like other Ilse Jacobsen’s winter coats as it’s a true A shape and NOT fitted at the waist. But still flattering, when unzipped, for those of us who do better with a roomy fit. I would give it 6 stars if the hood were sewn in as part of the coat. The little leather neck/hood strap is needed to keep the hood attached. It’s kinda odd but really, not a problem and easy to ignore.

I really like this raincoat, but I bought it because I wanted something with a cozy fleece interior lining and a raincoat on the outside. I put "fleece lining" in the search and this came up and in the description, it says it has a fleece lining. But, the photos indicate there is only a flannel lining and upon receipt I realized that there is NO fleece lining, so there is a bit of a misrepresentation. IF I needed JUST a nice plain black raincoat I might keep it, but I don't so I hope they change the description. Leigh

This is the raincoat I've been looking for! I recently moved to the Pacific NW and we get some serious rain in winter. I needed a stylish raincoat that I could layer underneath and that was long enough so my legs don't get soaked during my commute. This raincoat has everything I wanted and more. I got the blue grey color and it is even prettier in person. My biggest concern when ordering was sizing. The sizing chart on zappos is wrong. I went to the Ilse Jacobsen website to help determine my size. I am 5'5'' with a 34" chest and got a size 34. It fits with enough room to layer underneath and falls at the tops of my knees. Also, the hood is a fantastic size-- it overhangs your face so your face doesn't get wet but doesn't block your vision. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I love the belted hood feature on this coat. It is a really cool and unique detail that I'd never seen before and I've had no functional issues with it yet. If you are looking for a functional and flattering A-line coat in a range of pretty colors, I recommend this coat. Definitely one of my best zappos purchases!
