    RJ Classics Washington Xtreme Soft Shell Show Coat is rated 4.5294 out of 5 by 17.
    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!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little too thin. I know every now is looking for that super stretchy and thin show coat. I tried this one on in person and it looked like I was wearing a shirt. the material is literally so thin the you can see through it when holding it to the light. It just doesn't even look like a show coat. If your'e looking for a nice, stretchy, and durable hunter/jumper coat, I'd recommend the Grand Prix Quinn, also available on SmartPak!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great concept, not so great coat I think that this style is the coat of the future -- basically the same fabric that yoga pants are made out of -- cut like a dressage coat. This coat needs a few extra touches though to look like a dressage coat -- it needs shoulder pads and back venting with buttons or zippers or something that will give it a little interest from behind. The vents as they are are only a couple of inches deep. And it needs metal buttons! The plastic ones are just too cheap looking. A great idea whose time has come, just not quite right here. And crazy expensive compared even to pikeur or cavallo coats.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my life! This coat was the first soft shell show coat that I bought. I stepped into the next generation with this coat and couldn't imagine going back. When I first saw it I was blown away by the amazingly soft and stretchy fabric - what really sets it apart though, is the quality of the tailoring. When you put this coat on it looks like it was professionally tailored but then you also feel like you can go do some equestrian yoga! I've machine washed and hung the coat for care and it's held up beautifully over the 1+ year that I've owned it. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most amazing coat EVER!! I'm so happy I bought this coat.  It's extremely comfortable and stylish!  It fits like a glove, but is stretchy enough to allow the movement you need.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Coat - Worth the $ After searching endlessly for a coat that work well for dressage and stadium, I wound up with this coat. The Pikeur Skarlett was much too short and boxy, and traditional wool coats were not an option. It has the technical, lightweight fabric that make it bearable to wear on hot days. The shape is very flattering, and after only competing in it once, I received many compliments on it. I LOVE the zipper behind the buttons, it makes for a very polished (read: can't gape and see through to your shirt underneath) look and is very elegant. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! Like everyone else at a horse show on a hot day, I would be dying in my wool coat. Even so called lightweight and stretchy ones! I had never spent more than $200-$250 on a show coat.. And obviously as they are all getting much more technical with advanced features and fabrics the price is reflecting this! So when I started looking around, I knew to get what I wanted it would be more of an investment.When a button on my old coat broke at a spring show, a friend loaned me her wellington extreme coat. We are similar in size, but I would say she is slimmer than me. The jacket is SO stretchy all over it fit me like a glove.I showed in her jacket in my classes and knew there was no going back to the wool!!I ordered this jacket to finish out my show season, and ordered a size smaller than my old wool coat as it is much more forgiving. I can't even describe how much I love it! So light weight, and so flattering. I ordered the navy as I primarily show in the hunters now, and it is VERY dark. Dark enough that at first I thought they sent me the wrong color! My friend's coat is the black one and next to that you can tell its navy. Just so y'all know, it is a very, VERY dark navy.I am a pretty normal fit, don't usually need things altered (sleeves etc) and this is no exception. It was delivered on a weds and I tore the tags off and showed in it on a Saturday.I would suggest investing in a lightweight and fitted show shirt to wear under this jacket. Anything of a thicker material that is baggy doesn't look good under it. I bought the new tredstep symphony long sleeve white shirt, and it was a perfect match.Soooo much more comfortable than any other jacket, AND you can use the smartpak 20% off coupons on r&j classics! Technical and totally new, but still very classic and appropriate for hunters and hunt seat equitation.Everyone who tries mine on wants it! AND did I mention you can throw it in the washing machine!? :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome coat, but pricey I've waited a long time to find a lightweight coat with stretch that's washable. Luckily I tried on a RJ coat locally to find my size, so knew what I needed. I'm exceedingly happy as this coat's fit is perfect, styling is modern yet classic, and the material is amazingly comfortable. The zipper under the buttons is very smart and keeps everything in place. The stretch is what sold me and is why I'm keeping it even thought is way overpriced. We'll see how it holds up (that's why I only have 3 stars for durability - as I have yet to wear at a show), but the fit and comfort are superior. It's the first time I'm excited to wear a coat.
