Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This is a nice windbreaker that is lightweight but most certainly does not resemble a garbage bag or a throwaway poncho. I just returned from a 6-mile hike on a cool Fall day with winds gusting to 25 mph and was very pleased with how comfortable I was throughout the hike. It is a bit boxy but I prefer that type of fit for freedom of movement. This is going to be one of my favorites September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great outdoors jackets It's windy here so a good wind breaker is a must!! Very easy to function in and keeps me warm. September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Super cute and fits perfectly July 30, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight pack able jacket Love the fit and look July 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice windbreaker I got the tippet color and It is very attractive. The fabric is soft, and I really like the zip pockets. Not a heavy jacket, but great for cool summer days. May 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lightweight Jacket I bought this jacket as a versatile, lightweight option for an upcoming trip to Portugal that will include lots of hiking and some time walking around Lisbon. I've packed it in my backpack and worn it a few times in preparation for the trip and I think it's going to work out great! Perfect on the trail or paired with a casual outfit walking around town. I bought it in Foxglove and I've gotten so many compliments on it! May 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Windbreaker This jacket was purchased for a beach trip that i knew was going to be chilly, and windy. It does exactly what its supposed to. Its so cute. May 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wind Breaker This is a nice jacket but it is very thin. It is not a jacket you where on a chilly fall day but one you were on a windy spring day. Over all this love this jacket May 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made I bought this jacket for a light weight option while hiking and for a trip to Iceland next month. It's great at stopping the wind and rain so far! I like the feel of the material. It's soft and moves. It also breathes which is really necessary! I also like the drawstrings that allow the bottom to be tighter. The pockets are very deep as well. I think it's the perfect addition to my pack! May 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for college students I've worn this jacket everyday since I received it in the mail. I can wear hoodies underneath and it still fits! It is very athletic looking and have received lots of compliments. Love this! April 28, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor quality for Columbia I'm a huge fan of Columbia outerwear and this jacket was a complete let down. The material was flimsy and cheap- a combination of a trash bag and throw away poncho. The fit is very boxy. April 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice and Light If you are looking for a very light windbreaker this is it! I purchased a medium and it is a little big but i think that is because it is not fitted and I usually look for fitted jackets Bright blue color is beautiful and easy to spot in a crowd April 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Windbreaker I was looking for a light jacket for walking in the spring, and this is exactly what I was looking for. It's extremely lightweight and comfortable. It does fit a little on the small size around the bottom of the zipper/waist area. I don't know if I would go a size larger though since it fits well everywhere else. April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for layering I bought this jacket in "Miami" and am very pleased with the color - as pictured - and the quality. I usually wear a small, but bought a medium so I could layer a sweatshirt underneath after reading other reviews. Lightweight and easy to roll up and put in a bag. April 2, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Windbreaker I am disappointed in the quality of this Columbia windbreaker. It is so thin and flimsy. April 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Jacket Light weight and stylish. I usually wear a large in jackets but the medium is just right. March 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket I love my new jacket! The color is pretty and it serves it's function well! The tag that is included that says this will make you want to get outside and it does! Can't wait to buy my husband and kids one of these and a fleece one as well! Love all of Columbia's gear! March 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase This is my first windbreaker and I'm in love. I've had it for a year now and the quality is still amazing. It runs a bit small so if you want to keep warm you have to layer which means buying a bigger size. If you wear a small go up to a medium or large (depending on what you want). Best product :) March 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This jacket is Awesome! This jacket is perfect for Spring . March 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Windbreaker Jacket I ordered the Stormy Blue windbreaker jacket and the color is beautiful. The material is soft and light and the jacket looks great on. The quality of the jacket is excellent and well made. March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shipment Excellent!! Will order soon March 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The color & size is perfect I love the color it's look exactly how it looks on the internet it fits a little small my I like my jackets fitted so it worked out perfect February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for trails and light hiking This jacket is very thin but is totally waterproof. Id usually wear it when i'm hiking or when i'm on a run because its super comfortable and it doesn't take up a lot of space in my backpack. Very pleased with this product!! February 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This jacket is just what I needed This windbreaker is great. It's light weight and fits perfectly. Love it February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit It is very light weight with a hood. It was exactly as advertised, the color was as shown on the photo, and it arrived on time. I love it. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lex Bought as a gift for my daughter. She LOVES it! Great fit. Great against the weather. Prompt delivery. Very happy!! January 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product, wild color The fit is great. I usually wear an XS in Columbia products and bought this in S so I could wear a warm fleece underneath. Worked out great! Jacket does a great job blocking most wind, though if you've got the pockets open (even with your hands in them, you'll get a draft as they are mesh inside. The jacket is so thin and lightweight that I folded it up into a sandwich bag. You can definitely take this thing anywhere. On the color, the "laser red" is most definitely a neon pink. On the bright side, you'll be very visible in parking lots! November 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light & waterproof Love that this windbreaker is made of super thin material, but completely waterproof. Great for rainy summer days were you don't need warm layers but protection from the rain. I like to wear it on hikes & runs around town. The color is not quite what you see on the website - the 'laser red' is more a neon pink. November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I had my doubts about this jacket, but overall very pleased! I was a little apprehensive when ordering this jacket. I'm 5'2 about 110 lbs and I ordered an extra small in the color candy mint. To my surprise I was able to fit a size small Columbia fleece jacket underneath without feeling suffocated. It definitely keeps the wind out and it's great for light rainy weather as well. It is very light and thin, but then again it is a windbreaker and I think it does its job very well. I have received many compliments while wearing it and I love it's compactability. October 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice everyday jacket This jacket is great because it is super light and easy to fold to pack along with you on hikes or trips. I got the light blue/ blue one and the colors are identical to the photo posted on the website. October 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I ordered it in black & I love it! Perfect for different types of weather. It's very comfortable, lightweight but still keeps me warm. Will defiantly buy another one. September 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Wrong Jacket? I purchased this jacket thinking it was the same jacket that I saw in the store, because they had the same exact name. But to my surprise I get the jacket shipped to my house and it's not the one from the store, but a lower quality, less functional, and unappealing jacket. September 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! I wanted something light, easy to put on, and comfortable that I can wear to school, or anywhere without it being too bulky, and this is exactly what I was looking for. I am petite size, so this is a bit baggy for me, even though I got XS, but it isn't that noticeable. Tippet looked like a great color to wear, too bad the XS was out of stock, so I got candy mint. August 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very light This is a great jacket! My sister and I both ordered the color "candy mint" and love them. I ordered a large because I was scared a medium would be too small to fit my large bust (36DD in Victoria's Secret to give you an idea). Needless to say I made the right decision getting the large! It still has just the right amount of extra room I was looking for. All the reviews said the jacket was extremely light weight and they were right! I wish it was a tad bit more thick but otherwise it's a stunning jacket. August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very nice windbreaker I like this jacket. I've been having trouble finding a jacket that the sleeves were not way too long, but this one is just right. My arms are normal length for my size, so I don't know why things are being made with extra long sleeves. I ordered a size large to wear over sweaters and bulky tops, and it's just right. Anyway, this is a very nice light weight jacket and I will wear it a lot if we ever get our normal rainy climate back here in the PNW. August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket! I absolutely love this jacket. It is very light weight and the colors are better than the pics. I've gotten ton of complements on this jacket. August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silky soft to the touch I love my new windbreaker from Columbia. It fits me perfectly. The material is so soft and light weight. It's like wearing next to nothing! August 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just What I wanted! This windbreaker is just what I wanted, it's lightweight, fits great and has some awesome colors. Not to mention at a great price! I got a size Large because several reviews said it runs small, and I also plan on layering with it so if that's what you plan on doing, I suggest sizing up. As for the material, it's a windbreaker, it is supposed to be light and the material is supposed to be thin so no surprises there. July 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Outdoor Michigander Found the jacket to be snug over the bust when zipped shut over a cotton "T" shirt. I am large busted and have a small build so I ordered a medium. A size large would be too big overall as well as arm length being too long. Love the jacket's bright blue colors and the waterproof factor. This will make the third jacket from Columbia I have purchased for the 4 seasons in Michigan. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacket This jacket was an exact fit, fits thin layers underneath, and is incredibly light weight. If I didn't already own it, I'd buy it again. July 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! Absolutely wonderful windbreaker. At first it seems thin and you wonder how it will protect, but it blocks the wind without making it feel like you are wearing a plastic bag. All jackets have to let some air through, and this one is no different. It lets just enough air in to keep you comfortable. I will definitely be using this at night while camping! Perfect light layer! May 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great overall This is the perfect wind breaker May 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by windbreaker Purchased this jacket for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! The feel of this coat is amazing. I was expecting a bulky windbreaker fabric and this coat feels like a very lightweight silk/satin! Love the colors. April 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain coat It's a very comfortable sweater it looks good when you wear it I would buy another one April 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it! This jacket is perfect for spring and cool summer nights. It's a very thin jacket but it does retain some heat. It Is also nice for the rain. The only thing that might throw you off is the color. The dark blue is not a true blue. It is indigo, almost purple but it didn't bother me because I like purple! April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable It is easy for me to wear lightly It is good to sports to everyday wear March 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it It fits a lil big but its very thing so it's great if u wanted to ear a long sleeve shirt March 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this jacket!!!! I was looking for a light summer/spring/fall jacket and this jacket is perfect. I'll mostly be wearing during the summer later in the evening when it gets cool. I am 5'1" 120 lbs and the small fits perfectly. It is not too tight in small like some of columbia's other jackets. It has a really nice taper at the waist. I could fit a very light fleece underneath if i wished. The coat is long enough i am sure for the taller folks. It comes about 7"-8" below my waist. The Foxglove color is beautiful! I just love it thanks Columbia for making such wonderful products!# We are not built like men and do not wish to have our clothes styled like men's.#THANKS. Carol March 10, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Looks sturdier in the illustration... ...I was trying to purchase a ladies piece closely resembling a mens Columbia rain jacket I have--and although this particular windbreaker looks fairly sturdy in the illustrations, it is actually pretty wimpy. Waterproof, I am sure..but rather flimsy, and not sure its worth the price I paid (and it was on sale at a substantial savings, to boot!). January 29, 2015
