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 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I love this soft shell jacket. I purchased in Chalk & it's such a pretty, creamy color. It's a very flattering cut. I'm 5'7'' & 125 lbs & the XS fits great. I will definitely use this jacket in many seasons. Very pleased with my purchase!

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.

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 Affordable Deal! Great jacket the item is exactly as described. the jacket worn outside, and proved itself, when blocked the wind, and helped keep body heat. very happy with it! would recommend this product

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Large... This is a really nice jacket, just wish it wasn't so large. I ordered a small, which is what I wear with typical Columbia jackets, but it's bigger than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Windproof Jacket What a beautiful functional jacket! Not hot like fleece. It is very lightweight but sure does the job of keeping the wind and cold out. Excellent jacket! Thank you, Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Transitional weather solution This will be a great addition to my outdoor gear - lightweight but warm enough for 30-50 degree days which is what I was looking for. I use it for commuting to work, errands, shopping, general outdoor time and its the right weight between my heavy winter jacket and my windbreaker. I have coupled it with a vest to go into colder days. it is similar to other softshell jackets, a little lighter but for the price, it fits the bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but runs large Great jacket, but runs big. I have two Columbia jackets and two pullovers, all size medium, so that's what I ordered. Its too big and the sleeves are even a little long, which normally doesn't happen. I'm 5'8" and 150lb for reference. Otherwise, it holds up in our crazy Indiana weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! This is a great jacket! Perfect weight, not too heavy, not too light. The only issue was that the sleeves are too long. Otherwise it would have been perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Got this jacket cause I loved the color This product was amazing just runs big, I figured I would get one size up so I could wear More under the jacket. So I recommend if your getting this jacket and usually get smalls then don't go up a size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from soft shell jacket I was looking for a light but weatherproof jacket for walking my dog. This seems to handle some wind and drizzle, I just wish it had a pocket on the inside and a some reflective trim. The sleeves are a tad bit long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Softshell jacket Initially ordered a medium, as my other Columbia jacket is that size - but this one was HUGE. Returned in for a small, which fit much better. Sleeves are very long. This jacket will be good for high 40's to 60's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket! This is a great jacket. I have worn this as my light and heavy jacket as it is very comfortable and lightweight. It is true to size but the sleeves are a little long, which I like but you may not. The material is of good quality and water/weather resistant. I have not laundered this yet but it spot cleans easily. This is the second Kruser Ridge jacket I've purchased from Columbia and will definitely be ordering from them again in the future!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice spring/fall Jacket Definitely not a jacket for winter weather. I purchased this after reading a review that claimed it was a good jacket to go out and play in the snow with the kids. I had to go back to my down jacket. Will be great for spring/fall. My only complaint is the sleeves are extremely long! I normally have a hard time finding sleeves long enough for me, but these are way too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful jacket. I have several in black that are a year or more older than this one. But this jacket seemed at least a full size larger than all the others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, solid shell made of lightweight material. I ordered this mineshaft (nice, dark grey) shell after eyeing my husband's Vortex Columbia jacket (still in excellent shape, by the way, 11 years later). The Kruse shell is lightweight you almost can't believe it is windproof unless you take it outdoors. I wore it several times in San Diego winter (40-60 degrees...that's as much cold as I can sanely tolerate), and it is just perfect. I've purchased several cheapy military/jean jackets over the years and this shell just perfectly layers underneath to keep me snug and wind-free without the bulk of a puffer/snow jacket. It is definitely a bit large, but it's described as "classic" fit so I expected as much. I'm 5'9," female, physically active chasing after my 3 little ones, 140lbs, extra long arms (comparable wingspan of a 6'2" male, tested and true), and the shell fits comfortably all over with even a good inch of material to give on my arms. I expected this to not be fitted tight like a compression jacket, so if you go in with that expectation, you'll be thoroughly happy with the purchase, for hopefully as long as my husband's 11-year old jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Softshell This jacket is warm and wind proof enough for southern winters. I bought an XS and its plenty big enough for a bulky sweater under it. Good length as well. I'm 5'5" and 125 lbs. I would definitely recommend going for the smaller size if you're in between.
