Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Lightweight Jacket Purchased this jacket on the Columbia website and overall I'm happy with this jacket for the sale price. I'm roughly 6'2" and I got the large. It fits pretty much perfect, the sleeve comes right to my wrist - not too long, not too short. The jacket is surprisingly roomy which should allow you to wear a light sweater or hoodie underneath no problem. Good for layering. You wouldn't know it by the pictures, but the sleeves from forearm to wrist is a thin spandex material as is the side, from armpit to hip. Otherwise, the jacket is a nylon type material, as you would think from looking at the pictures. The spandex material doesn't make the jacket bad, I just wasn't expecting the dual materials when considering the purchase. September 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for me Columbia has finally started making fitted jackets which work for trim people like me with long arms. I had nearly given up on the brand until now. The weight of this suitcase friendly jacket is perfect for travel, especially for Bay Area weather, and the fabric is durable, wrinkle free, and light weight. You won't sweat in this jacket, but it'll keep the wind out and cover your wrists and lower torso. Looks good too. If you keep moving, the jacket works fine over a shirt down into the 40s, even if there's light rain. Saw it at Sports Basement, but had to go online for black. October 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect gift I gave this softshell to my housband for his birthday, and he couldn´t be more happy! August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great!! I love this jacket. I ordered a large as I measure to a 41" chest and it is listed as something that is somewhat slim fit, at least a closer to the body fit. The large was quite big. I returned it for a medium and I'm much happier. I'm 5'10", 175 lbs, I'm in the middle of large and medium usually. FYI Aside from size...great jacket. Stretches just enough and the weight is perfect for an early morning hike. July 16, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by wind breaker good sizing ,rather thin ,not what we were expecting for quality, but to expensive to send back not very good for easy return policy cheaper to keep it . July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharp I wanted a light jacket for an all round use. This nailed it. I like the bright color. It is a warmer jacket than I thought it would be. When I layer it in cold weather I won't have to wear as much under. May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Coat I have ever bought This light weight coat fits perfect. Moreover, the function of the coat is great. It breathes and moves with my body. November 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks cool This is a really comfortable, and easy to wear jacket. I normally go with all black soft shells, but my wife talked me into blue toned one and I gotta say its pretty sweet looking. August 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket I love this jacket - Use it for hiking. It's been a great experience so far. I had an issue with the size but customer service was excellent - they helped me out with a different size in no time. August 17, 2012
