Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item My sister is receiving this for Christmas as she lost her previous Columbia Softshell Jacket. She is going to love it as she asked for this specific one for Christmas because she loves it so much. The fit is great on her and she loves the material as it is not bulky and fits like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Very happy with my new hoodie / jacket. It's nice and light and actually fits my athletic shape well (I bought a small and my measurements are 35-25-35). Usually if something fits around my shoulders and chest, it is way too big around the waist. This has a nice tapered fit. I was surprised at how resistant to water it is; have worn it out in the rain a few times now and have stayed dry as the water just rolls right off. Only issue I've had is that the zipper is a little sticky. Wish this came in more colours!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sweet as Softshell, but the zipper did not work. I cannot review this well as it was defective when I received it. The zipper would not work, and then I had to pay to return it to you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very thin I was hoping use this as a fall/spring jacket, but it was much too thin. It has no lining and would not work for what I wanted. It was also shorter on the torso than I liked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a tad small I have a regular Columbia jacket without a hood and it's a large so I thought ordering a large on this one would be ok. It was pretty small so I had to get an XL. Otherwise it would've been a 5 star item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected This jacket looks good, but had a texture I did not expect as well as it was not soft at all. I am returning it because it was not what I wanted but if you need a rain jacket for warmer days this could be the right fit for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well I have an older version of this jacket and ordered this one to have color options. The jacket sheds light rain very well and is just enough protection on a windy or cooler day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I originally bought one of these from the outlet store because I needed some hiking wear, it was so inexpensive and I loved the colors. I found myself wearing it as my go-to for all casual outings when I needed a light jacket or windbreaker. It's light enough to carry in a backpack or even around your waist, but it is also quite warm, especially if it's windy. I have quite a few friends who have these, too, and wear them all around. The only problem I've had with my original one is that the cuff seam came loose within a few wearings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Jacket Bought this for 10 day trip to Europe. Very well made, looked great, seems indestructible and, believe me, I put it to the test! It does fit a little on the small side. Since it did not rain on me, I can't comment on the water resistant capabilities. Great hood that stayed on in wind gusts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A family favorite This is the fourth one of these jackets I have purchased. The first was for my youngest daughter, then two more for me and my oldest daughter. We wanted one after borrowing the first. After daily wear for two years, my daughter outgrew hers and we are replacing it. Comfy, lightweight, nice cut that flatters. The colors keep changing and some are a little bright for me, but that is my only negative feedback.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I returned the jacket I was looking for a lightweight, fleece lined jacket. I thought this was it but this does not have lining. It probably is a great jacket but not what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
