AWESOME lightweight jacket! I find this jacket to be very practical it sheds rain very well and is light weight enough I'm willing to stuff it in a bag or small pack just in case I find I need a little jacketness. It was very comfortable in high humidity conditions of Wisconsin while being just the correct amount of jacket. The fabric breaths so I did not get extra sweaty nor dose it stick to your skin. The fabric is not noisy and it has a nice amount of stretch making it very comfortable to wear while riding bikes. It SO nice I bought a second one "Hot Coral" :) In our household I'm known as a "coat aholic" so if I like it, it must be a great jacket. Thanks You Columbia for the awesome product! August 28, 2014
Perfect I Wanted a white lightweight rain coat with a hoodie for the beach. Read a lot of the reviews about it being small, but I ordered the size I normally would, a medium, and it fits perfect. I am tall, about 5'9" and the length of the coat and sleeves is perfect. Love the way it fits, not too tight and not too loose. It's always kind of scary to order online without being able to see, feel and try on, but I love this coat and would recommend it to anyone. August 17, 2014
Tight fit This is a well-made good looking jacket. However, the fit is tight. I'm sure it is made to fit like this since it is made of a stretch material; I had no difficulty zipping it up. The jacket fits over a teeshirt, but it would not fit over a sweater. I am impressed with the pockets as they easily unzip to a warm material that will fit my cold hands. June 4, 2014
Spring Time! I love this jacket. I got a size L with the intention of being able to layer underneath for chilly morning bike rides. The jacket is still flattering though, even without those extra layers (thanks, waist cinch) ! The water resistance is fantastic too, as the rain can sneak up on you quickly here in PDX. May 8, 2014
Decent for Running I ordered this is a L and as you'll see from my other reviews, sizing with Columbia is hit or miss. I am a large bone 5'10" frame. Nothing out of the ordinary. The jacket fits, but it's a little small in arm length and across the shoulders. I took it out for a short run and the fabric already smells, so I am bummed about that. However! It did repel the rain, moved easily with me as a ran and kept me at a good temperature the whole time. And I felt seen - I bought the white one. I just want to be able to buy a L at Columbia and have it fit. I am far from an XL and actually closer to M in most other brands. April 4, 2014
Product great for running Very stylish Looks and feels high end Wife who is hard to please is wearing it. no complaints so far February 27, 2014
LIghtweight jacket I received this jacket a week ago. It runs true to size and is very lightweight. This jacket is more for a spring weather or early fall. It is rain proof which is a good thing for where I live. This jacket will be good for running outside in cool weather. February 24, 2014
