Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Jacket I had one just like this years ago and loved it. I wore it during the winter in NY. It's not a winter coat but it worked for me. I wanted a new one and got this one and it's exactly like my old one. So comfy and it's warm and fits and looks so good on. Sleeves are a tad long but still looks good. The jacket sits on my hips and I'm 5'7. I got a large because my breast were a little to big for the medium. May 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Spring Jacket Awesome jacket! Have worn in rain and wind and does an excellent job of keeping you warm and dry! Love the shape it gives when wearing and the fact that it doesn't feel like a cheap jacket! April 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice design, looks sharp I agree with the people who feel the sleeves are longish - I'm 5'10" and usually have a hard time finding sleeves long enough. These go about an inch past my wrist bones, which is great but may not meet others' needs. Love the cut and material of the jacket. It has a bit of a glitch with the zipper, but I'm keeping it for its other features. March 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sleeves are looooooong I really really like this jacket. Its thin and pliable and has a soft fleece lining. I am a taller woman at 5'8 and I really appreciate length in pants and sleeves.... with that being said, these sleeves are so long I dont think they would fit correctly on any size person. With my hands hanging straight down to my sides the sleeves cover all but the last link of my longest finger. I like the rest of the jacket so much, I cant decide to keep and hem the sleeves or just return for my money back... I ordered the Titans pass 3.0 titanium fleece at the same time in an xl and it fits like a glove. March 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good spring weather coat My first Columbia jacket. I like the lightweight feel. It keeps the chill off when you are taking a walk with the dog in cool to mild weather. Long in the arm which I was not used to but am enjoying it now. And it keeps you dry in a light rain. February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite Jacket I have this jacket in both Black and Sea Salt. They are my favorite jackets. In the winter I you will always catch me in this jacket. It can be worn casually or formally. This jacket is warm and comfortable. If you are looking for a nice jacket I would definitely recommend this one. January 28, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great over all This jacket was great but the only problem is if you are large breasted and want some room in the chest area you may want to get the next size up. Aside from that it's a great fit January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect coat Not bulky but very warm and somewhat fitted to make it look a bit nicer no matter what the occasion. January 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Love the wind proof and water proof factor of the jacket, makes it perfect for all weather surprises! The adjustable waist piece is great as well to make the jacket more fitted. January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Jacket Great looking and feels great January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big hit Teenager LOVES it. I found it ran true to size. I ordered a size up & it should work when worn with layers/sweaters/sweatshirts. The selfies showing it off were flying. December 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best! This jacket is perfect! So perfect I purchased two! Washes and dries like a dream. Versatile and good looking! I purchased in white and tons of compliments! Winner! December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Jacket This jacket is lightweight yet warm in all weather conditions. It fits true to size but has long sleeves which is something I appreciate but others might not. This is my go to jacket and although I have yet to launder it, I feel sure the quality will remain. I will definitely be ordering from Columbia again! December 12, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Light Weight I purchased this to replace a jacket I previously had. This jacket fits more like a "man's" jacket. The sleeves are long and wide. I feel this jacket was a little thinner than I expected. I am 5'10" and 200 lbs and this was big on me. December 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very nice jacket BUT sleeves are TOO long! I'm 5'4" and 130; I ordered M and it was too big and the sleeves were definitely too long. Then I ordered S and the fit was good EXCEPT the sleeves were still TOO long. Both were returned. I did get a different jacket in S that fit well, but again the sleeves were too long gut they had Velcro straps to adjust. I recommend the product only for tall women. Can Columbia start making PETITE sizes, PLEASE? November 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not quite what I expected I ordered this jacket in the color Quill based on the online image, and a size medium based on the reviews saying it runs large. I'm returning it because it wasn't as large as I expected, and the color is way darker than I expected from the online photo. I'll be trying a size large in a different color, because I like the quality of the jacket; it looks like it'll be great once I get the right one. November 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! I got this jacket in a size S in black, and XS in white to try to find out what size/color I really wanted. I returned the white because it did have a dirt mark on it, and even though it was easy to remove I know with pets and kids I didn't want to take the chance of always getting marks on it. If you are deciding between the XS and S, it depends on what you want to wear underneath it. With the S I am able to comfortably have a thin long sleeve shirt, or even a thicker flannel on underneath and not feel like the arms are tight. If I have just the thin long sleeve on under the XS it felt a little too tight. The XS was shorter than the S, and I loved how much longer the S was because I hate having to constantly pull down my jacket. The sleeve seemed like the same length, they are longer than most jackets. I went out into the light rain and it just beaded on the jacket and shook right off! Definitely warm and worth the money! (I am 5'1 125lbs) November 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent buy I love my jacket! Received it a few weeks ago and have used it several times. Wore it in the rain (in Florida the rain pours sideways so even with an umbrella you usually get wet), and it whisked away the water wonderfully. Also wore it on several windy chilly days and it kept me comfy. I typically wear a medium, but this one was a little roomier than I anticipated (I'm 5'7" 145#). I have broad shoulders so a Small is too small-overall I'm very happy with it. Great product! October 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I bought this jacket as an alternative to the standard fleece. It runs a little large and the sleeves are a little long but other than that, it's great. I also bought one for my best friend for her birthday. October 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by plane Jane This is very boring and plane jacket. No features and a boxy fit even in the small. I returned this for a slightly more expensive soft shell with much more personality and very nice features. Get the Prime Peak softshell instead, much better fit and value. October 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied I always biked to and from work with weather like here in Chicago is crazy !i bought this jacket last year in spring i am super happy i dont need any extra layer to add..highly recomendef! September 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful jacket I usually wear a size small but had to bring that back and order an extra small. This is a great fit and style! July 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too big... I ordered a small since I have other things from Columbia, but is too big, had to returned and I ordered an XS. May 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Big, but I'm keeping it I generally wear a Med but having ordered this online i was unsure about its fit b/c I read mixed reviews before I ordered. (I'm 53, 5'8 and 153#). All I knew was, I wanted it. It is considerably bigger than I expected for a Large (I have a Columbia fleece in Large and it too, is roomy but not as much as this). But, I'm keeping it. I can layer and not worry about feeling bulky. It looks big but not ginormous and, I'm keeping it. The color is an odd shade of "red" - it's a bit orange-y but...I'm keeping it. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight jacket Great jacket for in between seasons! April 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kruser Ridge Softshell This jacket is great. It's thin, lightweight, windproof, and warm- but won't overheat in spring/fall transitional weather. It's has a nice fit, allowing for layering, but not baggy. It's a classic fit and will, in my opinion, never go out of style. For reference: I am 5'2", 108 lbs. I got size small and am very pleased with the fit. April 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little long by the waist Bought this for a friend. She likes it but do complain that it is a little longer by the waist. March 27, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by XL is really XLT Advertised as XL, XLT came...too large. Bummer, really love Columbia. Could return :-( March 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by too big I'm 5' and wear size 0-1 100lb I usually can't fit into women's clothing and buy clothes in the juniors or children's departments. I wish they had a petite version of this coat. Otherwise I wouldn't have to return it. Great quality. Love this coat, just too big. Looks like I'm drowning in it. March 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket! I don't like big bulky coats so this jacket is perfect for me. It is very warm without being heavy and is the high quality you expect from Columbia. I purchased this jacket about 2 years ago and I reordered it in the same size but it's too big and I am returning it. March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Well made, warm, fits great February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Coat Love this coat, it's a great fit true to size. I'll be able to wear something underneath it and still have room to move. Will be great for outdoor activities. December 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kruser Ridge Softshell is very breathable I got this jacket and wasn't sure about how warm it would be out in the cold and wind, but it proved to be fairly insulated. This product is easy to wear with layers and has a nice, classy look to it. Getting marks or substances on the Softshell isn't hard, but is simple to remove them. The only other thing I would want out of this jacket is a hood to stay more resistant to wind. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kruser Jacket Bought this for my wife. She loves it. Light weight jacket, just right for cool SC mornings. November 18, 2014
