Women’s Kruser Ridge™ Softshell Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plus Size Jacket I love this coat! The color is terrific and it's very stylish. I carry a lot of weight in my hips and I can zip it with no problem. The only thing I don't like is that the sleeves are about 1 inch too long. I wish the sleeves wouldn't get longer with larger sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! I love the sleek look of this jacket. I feel like it runs true to size. I loved mine so much, my Mom just had to get one as well. Also, I would like to THANK Columbia for making actual PLUS size clothing! Anytime I'm looking for a nice jacket I turn to Columbia. I've purchased 3 jackets in the last 2 weeks ALL Columbia. Because NO ONE else bothers to make cute ones in plus sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for everyday use I absolutely love this jacket. Originally I was searching for something sturdy that I can use outside but I love the feel and look of this jacket for work. It is something I can wear at work without looking too "sporty." The only gripe I have on it is that the range of motion on the shoulders is limited that I have a hard time when I try to shrug out of it while sitting. Otherwise, it is great against wind and thick enough to accommodate 20-30 degree weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft Great Feeling Jacket This jacket runs a little small but feels wonderful. I am usually cold and wear this jacket often. I love the zippered pockets, hold a phone and keys with no problem and the fabric inside is soft and warm. The drawstring is handy at the bottom of the jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one issue I love this jacket, except for one thing. The lining is a material that doesn't slip easily over fleece or flannel. It runs a bit small (for my hips) so got the next size up. LOVE the pink color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket, light weight yet very warm! I have been looking for a columbia jacket for a while now, my husband owns a few of them so of course I wanted one too. I love the soft shell columbia jackets because they're light yet keep you warm. I would recommend this jacket to everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleeves too long Sleeves were too long. Had to have them tailored. Runs a little small in the hips which I've found to be true for most Columbia products. Would have been great to have a two way zipper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket Nice light jacket, perfect for fall, with a long sleeve shirt worn underneath. The sleeves seem to be long for size of jacket, so I shortened them. The only improvement would be a two way zipper and a hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How many ways do I love this jacket!? I don't think I can rave enough about how much I enjoy this jacket. The outer shell has repelled a rainstorm and in the inner lining has kept me warm. The lining is a plush, soft texture, but not really a typical fleece. My body temperature runs very hot, so during most of the year, even rain, snow and cold I have to be very careful how warm my outer wear keeps me. The Kruser Ridge has fulfilled every expectation, even in 68 degree stormy weather, when most people are very cold, I may need a very light jacket and still get to warm as I'm outdoors. But, as I have gone hiking or walking along the foothill trails, I find the jacket to be the perfect weight. I am a fairly large woman, and wear 3x typically. I was very worried when I read that the jacket runs small, but I took a chance, and I wasn't disappointed. I have very broad shoulders, but my arms tend to run smaller than most my size. I also do not have a large bust size, so I found the arms and shoulders to be very roomy. I don't feel restricted at all. I sometimes have trouble with the hip and lower stomach area being too small on clothing, even when across the bust is too big, but this is large enough to zip up and room left over, but still with a flattering women's cut. The set in sleeves are a much more flattering look than a raglan sleeve, and hide the broadness of my shoulders. I think the one drawback is no hood for those rainy days. I did give 4/5 on function because it is so waterproof that a hood would help keep my head dry. But, I enjoy the jacket so much, I don't think I'll miss it. I love this jacket so much I bought two different colors and may go back for another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Arrived damaged pocket I just opened my package and the zipper on the pocket is ripped. I tried to call customer service because I need to return this but I want a new one and they don't have Saturday hours. I need this quick and I'm not happy that I have to wait until Monday. I bought this with a gift card so I don't know how I get credited.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect light coat This is a great buy, I like to travel in the fall so this is perfect for that weather. After reading the reviews I decided to go 2 sizes over and don't regret it. It's loose fitting so I can easily pile sweaters on. I have a strong bust so I bought one that was 3 inches above ( and it's not that big).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am in love with this jacket! I am 5'8" and have a big bust. I usually have trouble with jackets not zipping over my bust or being too short. This jacket is a great length. It repels water very nicely. It seems very light, but is great at blocking the wind. I will probably use this jacket in the winter time, since I hate wearing bulky coats. I have been wearing this non stop since I got it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I bought this for my wife for Christmas. I used the size chart & it was right on the money. The only problem she has is that the sleeves are too long for her. She will have those tailered as she loves the jacket otherwise

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent jacket Liked the feel of this jacket, not to stiff like some soft shells. Ended up returning it because it was a little to big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style & function! Love this jacket. Fits true to size. I normally wear women's size 20 and the 2X fits well, with enough room underneath for thin layers. Lightweight, but good for keeping the wind and rain out. Easy to pull on and go. Only wish it had a hood sometimes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket This a great fall jacket and the sleeves are big enough for my arms! This jacket is a bit more roomier than the other jackets that Columbia sells.
Date published: 2015-10-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs True to Size I read reviews for this jacket before purchasing and decided to get a size up from my normal 2X or size 20 in tops. The 3X I received is too big overall, the shoulders, the length of the sleeves, and the mid section (and I am very round in the tummy and bust). I am glad that it zips, but I think it is too big and I will return it and order the 2X. The fabric is sturdy and definitely appears that it would break the wind and be water repellent, or at least resistant, and I will enjoy wearing it apple picking in the upper Midwest in October.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beauitful Jacket I love this jacket. It looks great and feels great. It is a lighter jacket than others and I like that because we live in a warmer state and this will not be hard to drive in and shop. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket I LOVE this jacket. It's perfect for those in-between seasons in Minnesota! It's warm when needed, but doesn't overheat me on the more mild days. The fleece lining is so soft and the waterproof outer layer is great! The sizing was a little off for me. I usually wear a 18/20 or 2X in plus sizes. The 2X was a little narrow on my shoulders and short in the arms. So I ordered the 3X and that felt pretty wide at the bottom for me. The cinchers would bring the bottom in, but then makes it look like a poofy bag on me. I chose to keep the 3X so that I could wear long sleeve shirts or other light layers underneath it. I chose to get it in black so that it goes with everything. I also plan to bring this jacket along when I go to Ireland early this summer when the weather can be cool and rainy. I think it'll be great for that. Overall, I just LOVE this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat I read the reviews before purchasing this. It suggested that the fitting on this jacket was more fitted than relaxed. I am really between a 1X and a 2X, so naturally I went with the 2X after reading about the fit. I wish I had gone with a 1X. The fit is a little looser than what I would like. I live in Maine so this coat is more of a Spring/Fall coat, but I do love it. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE MY JACKET! I love that my jacket isn't bulky or puffy but still keeps me warm & protected from the elements. It's not constricting and moves with my body. I think the quality is excellent & it is figure flattering! I very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windproof and Water resistant This jacket is fantastic. Blocks the wind and will keep you dry, unless it is a monsoon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket Comfortable for driving, additional pocket for phone would be nice. Don't understand why all men's jackets and coats have inside pockets?? Wish it were a little larger to allow a heavy sweater to be wore..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me Great jacket for running errands as well as giving a dressier look than a fleece. I chose a size up from my normal - glad I did, perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent jacket I bought a 2X. It is a good jacket to aerobic walk within as the weather turns cool in the fall. It is a little tight to put a fleece vest under it for increased warmth. I sweat very easily due to 50+ hot flashes when I exercise. So I cannot comment on if it is breathable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! I recently purchased this jacket. It's a warmer than I thought it would be, that's good!! The sleeves are very long! Once again I'm having to shorten them... Overall i love this jacket! Buying a different color soon...
