Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Lightweight Jacket Absolutely love this, it's so comfortable, and does the job too. Also fun retro aspect is my dad had a Columbia jacket from the 90s in the exact same colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for running I bought this jacket primarily for running as well as hiking. It has x2 great pockets but NO zippers! Also a little snug around the bottom (I'm a small person). Could be longer in back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is exactly what I was looking for - a thin, lightweight, windbreaker that can be worn in both cooler and warmer weather... plus it's cute! I spend a lot of time out on construction sites and this is the perfect jacket to layer with - the neon yellow even matches my safety vest ;) Size is fairly true to size, if you are concerned about it being too small, order the next size up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great but doesnt break any wind It is very thin...I thought it would have more weight to it. Kind of feels like I'm not wearing a jacket. It very cute, I get a lot of compliments but I didn't get it for that purpose. Kind of feel like I wasted my money but its whatever because it was on sale. Just know I will be looking for a thicker one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very lightweight This is a super light weight jacket! I have not used it yet, I bought it to use while in Hawaii in May for those pass by rain showers. I'm super excited because it's so light and should be perfect for the warm weather and easy to carry around without adding much extra weight! Also I said it runs a little small for the size, but not really. I guess it's not as XL as some other XL items that I've bought but fits nicely- so that's my reasoning for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic windbreaker It's super soft and lightweight, classic windbreaker material. I was hoping it would be really thin, like this old windbreaker I used to have in the 90's, and it's perfect! Very thin, like many other reviews have said. It fits like a 90's windbreaker too, loose enough to fit a sweatshirt under it and a little tighter at the cuffs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute! I LOVE this windbreaker. It is seriouslt the cutest thing, and I have gotten tons of compliments on it. The only thing is that it isn't reallt warm. It's super thin, BUT you can layer it. That's what's so great. I am 5'4 and 118 lbs, and I ordered a medium. It fits PERFECTLY, but it also has room to wear a normal jacket underneath for some warmth! LOVE it, and I totally recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windbreaker Perfect fit, material was very thin compared to what I am use to. I really think It will be perfect for spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colors, wish it was longer I love the colors of the jacket, they look very good in person. The only problem that have with it is since I am tall, I wish it was longer to accompany my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Love the colors, fit and ability to toss on to protect from wind and perhaps drizzle should the need arise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight wind stopper I ordered this just a bit late in the season so wasn't able to wear it much before heat waves arrived, but it will be great when the weather cools. I wish Columbia would add reflective strips to their jackets for those of us who walk our dogs or run before the sun comes up (or after it goes down). It's a comfortable, lightweight jacket that I look forward to wearing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money!!!! I am still shocked that this jacket was originally 60.00!!! Even with the price reduced to 39.99....my gosh... It is clearly NOT worth the money. This jacket is paper thin... I could have used it as a kite. The only mesh lining is where the pockets are on the inside. Very disappointed. Sorry Columbia....cheaply made. Sent it right back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun retro windbreaker Love this throwback windbreaker! It is the perfect spring jacket/layering piece. I only wish they carried more colors so I could buy multiples (all black or brights would be great). Most of the colors are not colors I would wear (too girly). Hopefully they will come out with better colors next season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from flashback windbreaker The Flashback windbreaker is awesome . I loved the color foxglove. I would buy another one if they came in other bright colors but they don't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro Windbreaker I bought this in Collegiate Navy and really like how retro the patterns are. I'm usually between a n XS and a small and purchased an XS in this and it fits really well! Not too baggy, but not tight at all. Be advised that it is very thin. I'll probably wear it during the summer time to the beach or something.
