    RJ Classics Washington Xtreme Soft Shell Show Coat is rated 4.4667 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, perfect, perfect! I have been looking for a soft shell show coat for ages! I've looked at Pikeur (the Gotha coat) and Grand Prix too since they were in a similar price range - but the sizes either fit only my waist or only my shoulders (I have relatively wide shoulders). I was very adamant on getting a Pikeur coat too - but luckily I found this at SmartPak! It sits perfectly on my shoulders and the waist area looks great too - the zipper under the buttons helps reduce any wrinkling! Coat ends where the sleeves end, which is great for me but may be a little short for dressage or other disciplines. Saved me a bunch of time and money since I didn't have to tailor it at all. Personally I don't think it's too thin - i've also only had it for a few months so I can't comment on durability. I only wish it had custom collar or inner lining color options - but honestly it fits so well I was willing to give the fancy flairs up for this coat. Highly recommended and well worth the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality material and details The material is amazing for jumping but also looks so chic! The details help to support the jump at hand of jumping and showing but make this the most comfortabel jacket. Felt so good and looked even better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried this coat on at a show and loved it but wasn't really in the market for a new one. However, I couldn't stop thinking about how amazingly well it fit and how great it looked. I haven't gotten to show in it yet so it's hard to gauge the durability and such but so far I love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far I have used it once and absolutely loved it. It is so comfortable. I had first ordered it one size larger and had to return it and order 1 size down. I do wish it had come in a short but the regular does fit ok. I thought price was very good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unfortunately did not fit. This coat has many good qualities. It is lightweight, flexible and good looking. Unfortunately, it did not fit my daughter's build which resulted in strong wrinkles in the arms and the sides of the body. Likely would fit better on someone who was not as muscular.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Side by side comparison: this wins!! I needed a soft shell coat for showing hunters in the summer. I get migraines when I get overheated, so a breathable, lightweight coat was a must. Over a 2 week period, I tried three GP coats (TechLite Classic Sport, TL Quinn, and, Classic Sport Washable) and 2 of the RJ Xtreme coats: the Washington Xtreme, and the Monterey Xtreme. At first I liked the Quinn; it fit better than the first GP I'd tried. If I hadn't had this Washington Xtreme side by side with the Quinn, I would have kept the Quinn. But once I put this on, it was a whole new story. I love the four button look and the zipper closure behind the buttons is very flattering. (The Quinn has these features too.) Where the Quinn and the Washington xtreme coats differed is in the finishing details. This Washington Xtreme looks more polished and fits me like a glove. The Quinn and other GP coats flared out over my hips a little too much, were a little bit baggy in the waist for me, and the back vents weren't quite high enough (maybe why the waist was baggy). The Washington Xtreme, on the other hand, had just the right flare and length to the hips, and the waist was perfect and the vents ended in just the right spot. I also noticed a difference in the fabric when I had them side by side: the TechLite fabric of the Quinn was a little shiny. I didn't like it at all once I noticed it. The Washington Xtreme fabric is a lovely, soft lightweight, breathable fabric that is just stretchy enough to give and makes the fit perfect. Also, I love the zippered sleeves which make it easy to slip over gloves if needed and the angled zipper pockets are flattering and handy. The cut of this coat is very slimming and flattering. The Monterey Xtreme was also a bit too flared in the hips for me, but everything else fit fine. I just really like the 4 button look but the Monterey is a bit more classic. For sizing information, I wear a 4-6 in street clothes and the 6 in this coat fit me perfectly. I have average proportions. I wore a 12 in the GP coats. I am so glad I got to compare the Washington Xtreme to the Quinn side by side. The Quinn is a very nice entry level soft shell coat. But this is a step up for sure and if you're going to spend the money, spend the extra $50 and get this one. You won't regret it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our hot, humid weather This is a comfortable, (relatively) cool show coat that (for once) does not feel like you are trying to jump fences while wearing a suit coat. It is very thin and lightweight, which takes some getting used to, but it still looks like a traditional coat when on and it is great for showing in the Texas heat and humidity. (I don't feel like I'm going to pass out after each trip.) I wear it in the hunters and think it looks perfectly appropriate. I particularly like the hidden zipper, since I have a large chest and pulling and gaping are often issues unless I buy the coat very large. This fits my chest without looking too big elsewhere. It is also easy care. I liked it so much I bought one for my trainer as a gift.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I just received this coat in the mail. I had seen it in a local tack store, but they did not have my size. I wanted a soft shell coat, with a bit of a pattern. The tonal black is gorgeous and exactly what I was looking for. Some of the other soft shell coats are very shiny, but this one has a more natural looking tone. I am rather large chested, but smaller everywhere else so other coats I looked at would need to have some tailoring done to make the rest of it fit properly after sizing up for my bust. This one fits wonderfully everywhere, no alterations required. I can't wait to start showing in it!
