Women’s Kruser Ridge™ Softshell Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thin material but overall good for fall weather I bought this for my upcoming trip to Alaska in the Fall. I will have to layer it with a sweatshirt and a top as it is rather thin. The inner lining is not fleece, so it only provides warmth thanks to the poly outer shell. Overall, it will be perfect for the cali fall or spring chilly nights, but nothing colder than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yahoo!!! I recently purchased a few items from Columbia. Going out on a limb with the purchase, not knowing if I'd like their products or not is always concerning! However...... I LOVE LOVE LOVE this particular jacket!! It's sleek and fits very well! I purchased the same jacket, different colors, for my sister and I and they're both awesome!! Perfectly lined with a little bit of fleece and a nice outer covering! We are both fans of Columbia now!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fall jacket I love this jacket because it's lightweight but it's still warm for Midwest fall days. I ordered a small and it fits perfectly over a sweatshirt or a normal shirt. I just love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket I debated a long time on whether to get this soft shell jacket. I was looking for something that would keep the wind out and keep me generally warm. This does deliver on that promise, but it ran a little large, so it's a bit baggy on me and I'm a pretty large woman! As such, some wind can get in, but overall it keeps me warm and is a good jacket. Not my favorite, but certainly serviceable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable!! Very adequate for our GA weather because it is not too warm it is just perfect for a mild winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great layering jacket I love this jacket. Lightweight, yet the lining kept my warm during a recent camp out in cool weather. I imagine it will be a great piece to use as an additional layer when temps drop. I felt the sizing ran big. Originally ordered a medium and had to exchange it for a small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is so comfortable This jacket is so nice, I love jackets with zip up pockets and it's meant to be an outdoor jacket but I wear to sleep in since it's so comfy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I love this Jacket but had to send it back. The reviews say it's true to size but in my opinion it runs large. I like my jackets to be fitting and I felt like it was baggy in the mid section. I feel like the modern fit has a lot to do with it. If you buy, I recommend going a size down if you like a tighter fit, or you may just want to look for jackets that say "active fit" instead of "modern fit."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Material Love the soft touch of Women's Kruser Ridge Softshell Jacket. Nice cutting too. Unfortunately, run too large. Will definitely get the right size back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great jacket! I ordered a small and I am 5'1" 115 lbs, it fits a little big on me, especially in the sleeves. But I wear a lot of sweatshirts and currently live in Michigan so it is perfect for when the weather gets a little chillier. Amazing quality, definitely recommend to friends

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Jacket with Great Quality I was a little worried about the sizing after reading reviews, however I recommend sticking with your usual Columbia sizes you get. The sleeves are just a tad long like 1/2 an inch which I just fold, fits well otherwise. My aunt has the same jacket and after wearing it I decided to get one of my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High-quality & versatile jacket Extremely well made jacket that can be used in a variety of conditions -- by itself, or over layers. The Quill color is a really nice eggplant shade. I bought in on sale at a really good price. I thought the jacket ran small. It fits fine, but not a lot of room for layers beneath. Even though it ran small, the sleeves are too long, and I'll have to hem them about 1.5 inches -- this is almost never a problem for me. Still, I'm pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Very pleased with this purchase. I'm 5'11", so finding jackets with sleeves that are long enough is always a challenge -- this is a great one! I got it on a super sale in the color Mineshaft, which is a little more brown in person that I thought from the photos. Overall, please and recommend this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome coat! This coat is super soft. It can worn for dressier occasions or out in the woods. Do feel like the sleeves are long on it bit otherwise, its a great fit. Would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a bit large but cant go wrong with this product Its a little large but thankfully it has a bottom string to make it tight, the fit is perfect, and the functionality of the jacket is just wonderful. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ...Not What I Expected I've had other "lightweight" jackets that promised warmth without being "bulky." I am super impressed with this jacket. It's extremely lightweight, and when I tried it on, it was instant warmth. I can't wait to test out how cold I can "go" with this jacket. I know i'll definitely be just fine for Chicago's Colder Fall Weather. The only con to this item is that it runs a touch small. It's still an EXCELLENT jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my demands! I had seen this jacket in summer sale, the Omni shield technology was something new to me so I went ahead and bought this jacket in CHIANTI color. The material is soft , jacket is warm & it fits the need! What's best the price is 35$ in sale ( original is 115$)! So I am more than happy for this jacket, Wisconsin summer is a mixture of rains & hence I wanted a jacket that would help me. This is truly lightweight material. The reviews said it runs large so I ordered small for myself & I am happy with fit. I am 34 D with a 7 month baby bump right now and weight 139 pounds! This fits great for me & it's a tad loose at arms, which I prefer in my jackets! Also my baby bump area is a lill' tight as I am in 7 th month( so no complaints there)! Great buy with a great sale price! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality just runs a Little Large I ordered this jacket for all of my hiking, camping, fishing adventures. I ordered a small and it does run a bit loose in the arms and waist (I am about 5'7 and 130 pounds.) But overall I love how light weight and warm it is. And zip up pockets are always a plus for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from runs larger than a prior softshell I had a prior softshell from Columbia -- I'm not sure which model it was, but that fit much better. This one was purchased a replacement jacket, and I do notice that it fits a little bit looser. The shoulder seams hit at just the right spot. The arm length seems like they are maybe just a tad longer (which I don't mind at all). But the arms themselves also seem a little bit baggier/looser overall. The torso section is also a little bit looser as well. I like to have a little bit of a snugger mid-section fit (which my prior Columbia softshell did have -- and I was still able to layer and wear bulky sweaters underneath). Overall I love the quality, but I'm just knocking off a star since it seems like the sizing has changed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from exactly what I wanted This product is exactly what I wanted for spring skiing and outdoor activities. Will also work great for spring traveling.
Date published: 2017-03-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizing is a little off I purchased a similar softshell jacket about a year back and the fit was much better. The arms on this jacket are slightly too long and the jacket itself is a bit too loose to be considered a size XS. I was hoping that it would be the same size as the jacket that I was trying to replace. I am 4'10" and weight about 115lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Weight and warmth The arms on this jacket are unusually long, but I will appreciate that feature on cold spring/fall hikes. It has a nice weight and it's warm. It looks very tailored and the colors are beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for spring skiing and travel! This jacket is almost perfect (a couple of inside zip pockets would have made it so). I love the trim fit and length of both the body and sleeves (I wear a medium and am 5'10"). I ordered the chianti, and it's gorgeous! I got this for spring skiing, but will be reaching for it for many more activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little lighter weight than expected This is a great spring/summer jacket for Wisconsin. It will probably be warm enough for me when it is 65-70 degrees because I'm usually cold. For early spring, I'm wearing it under a heavier jacket. The quality is excellent and the x-small fits perfectly with room for a sweatshirt underneath (I'm 5'5", 112 pounds). The Chianti is a rich, dark red that looks like it did on my laptop screen. I have several size small Columbia jackets and this is my new favorite since the x-small fits better & this one has such a flattering fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good standard jacket. I bought small in Pond colour. Tried on jacket only to realize that pond is defiantly not my colour. Very roomy fit, great material and overall good looking. I will pass this on to one of my lucky daughters as this is not my colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have fairly large shoulders and long arms, so i always run into problems with the length of sleeves being short or the shoulders being too small in women's sizes. Therefore, I usually buy in the men's section for jackets, but men's jackets unfortunately don't follow the curve of my body. This jacket fits perfect. The sleeves are long and the shoulders have just enough wiggle room. I don't run into the same issues i usually do. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket I bought this jacket a couple of months ago for a trip to the Northwest US and Canada. It was perfect. It kept me dry and warm. It isn't for cold weather but for 50 - 60 degrees, it was great! It was very easy to move around in this jacket, I didn't feel confined at all. I have no complaints about this jacket at all! Highly Recommend!
