Rated 3 out of 5 by from Softshell Overall, it is not I have expected. It is difficult to buy clothing online. It will not stand under Cold Weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket, not as warm as expected I got this jacket to use in the colder climates. Generally, I overheat easily so a good fleece + windbreaker is enough. I have one other softshell jacket from another brand that seems to have a more wind-resistant shell as well as thicker fleece. Depending on how easily you get cold, this jacket may not be as warm as expected. I'd say it's good for around 60 degrees cool/breezy weather. Quality is overall great, however, I think the cuff velcros should go further up the tab since the adjustment tab sticks out a bit due to the gap in the velcro and the end of the tab. The hood is a bit clumsy and doesn't sit well when not on, but it's removable so I have no complaints on that. Pockets are well placed and nice and soft, it is a bit loose in the mid-section for those looking for a more fitted jacket.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy! Exactly what I was looking for. It was a great fit, very comfortable and versatile with the zip off hood. Zips up to provide nice neck coverage when needed. Pockets are ample and sleeve length is perfect. For some reason many jackets now have too short sleeves for me. I am 6 ft. and take a large but have been having trouble recently but this was a spot on fit.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sure I got a large. 6'1" ~165lb It's fine for shoulders - arm length is a little long for me. The arms are strangely SKINNY though. Overall quite happy. Water resistance is nice, coat looks nice. Alone it only works down to say 30F (with little wind). With a sweater under, you can go lower. With a sweater under and another fall jacket (I was experimenting) I was warm at low teens with wind blowing. The hood is fine for me, I thought I saw someone complain about it.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid jacket. This is a very solid, well made jacket. Has some insulation, but really more like a shell than a standalone. Good for temps in the 30s and above, or colder if you have some base layer underneath.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket! The material is ideal because it repels water and always looks clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket The sale price was a great deal on this nice looking jacket.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Lighter Jacket This is a nice jacket. It is lighter than I was expecting, but it will replace my current light jacket. I like the fit. It is slimming, but not too tight. I generally wear athletic fit, but not slim or modern fit clothing, but this jacket fits perfectly. This will be my fall/early spring jacket. I would have to really layer up to comfortably wear this during winter.
Date published: 2017-12-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain/winter jacket Got this specifically as its cold and always raining in my city. Have used it for 2 weeks now and I am loving it. It dries quickly and the cap is particularly useful. They ran out of stock on colors pretty soon on this product. It does the job - protects you from rain and the cold and looks great too. Good product overall.
Date published: 2017-12-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hood is HUGE Good quality but hood is way too big. Good thing it is detachable otherwise I would have returned it. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lighteweight Winter Jacket We live in Minnesota where the weather gets frigid. My boyfriend wanted a nice light weight, wind resistant, winter jacket. It keeps him warm for the winter and he loves the color. Great Christmas present!
Date published: 2017-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good thin coat I would recommend for temperature's over 30°. It's light so it's easy to move in but protects against the wind well too. Not think enough to use as a main winter coat though
Date published: 2017-12-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn’t fit- too tight I have always been able to purchase a size Medium. I own 3 other Columbia coats but this one was too tight around the waist when zipped. I was looking for a soft shell I could wear over a hoodie. Seemed like a pretty nice coat but did not fit right. I am returning it.
Date published: 2017-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! fits different types of weather and activities. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
Date published: 2017-12-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fall jacket The soft shell is versatile for urban/trail transition. Light, comfortable jacket, excellent for travelling as well. However there are no inner pockets, which is an useful feature that should be considered for future design. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but bad hood. Product works well and fits to size but settings are complex. Hood drops over face (eyes) making it difficult to see. Hood doesn't remain on top of head and wind can sneak in your ears.
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket This jacket is great! Perfect for running around town in 30 degree weather. It completely blocks the wind, and is even a little heavier than my old softshell from a more expensive competitor. With that being said, there isnt much insulation, so the material passes cold after prolonged exposure to below freezing temperatures. It stretches and moves along with you, and there is enough give to layer a thin fleece underneath. Nice and toasty with minimal layering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is amazing! This jacket is so warm and fits perfectly. Would recommend to everyone!
Date published: 2017-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Fits true! Doesn't run small The jacket is WATERPROOF and wind doesn't cut it. It's the first of November and we already have 18 inches of snow. This jacket is the BOMB! I ordered a size large based on the reviews (I'm 6'1" 170 pounds) and should have gotten a medium. It is too wide in the waist for me and fits like a large. Love it so much I'm not sending it back. I've gotten a ton of compliments in the month that I've had it (the dark red color). You can't go wrong with this one.
Date published: 2017-11-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good - bad color Overall the jacket is very good. Fits great! Quality is excellent and it is very comfortable. The only down side to it is that the color is not what I was expecting. “Gravel” is a dark green, not a grey like the images portray.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket. One recommendation I love this jacket and the color pops!! The only thing I'd change is the size of the hood; it's really big

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features This is great for all seasons. Rain or shine, all works well
Date published: 2017-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket The jacket is comfortable and warm for mild winter days, 30 to 40 degrees. It is wind resistant also.
Date published: 2017-02-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Functional Although I like the jacket, the hood attachment is entirely too large. I returned the jacket because of this. If the hood fit better, therefore functional, I would have been more likely to keep it. What is the hood designed for and who is it designed for?
Date published: 2017-02-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Function with Style Great jacket. Blocks the wind and provides good warmth in 40 degree temperature. Very good looking soft-shell, black with blue zipper. Jacket collar is high when zipped up. The hood works great alone or over baseball hat. I bought the large and it fits great. 5'9" 160 lb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beefy This is being worn quite a bit during USSA Alpine race training. It definitely protects you from the elements....love it.
Date published: 2017-01-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, but too small I wanted to love this jacket. It looked well-designed and well-made and it was the perfect weight -- not too warm, but warm enough. But it was too small. It was a medium -- my normal size -- but very tight in the chest and in the arms. Maybe it would work if worn over a light t-shirt, but even an ordinary long-sleeve shirt made it too tight. Reluctantly, I sent it back. (I have not had this problem with other Columbia products. As I write this I'm wearing a Columbia fleece in size medium and it fits perfectly.)
Date published: 2016-12-29
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a winter coat I bought this jacket for my husband with the intention of using it as a winter coat (I live in the SE US; our winters are mostly >20deg F). When I received it, I found that it was more of a fall jacket. I received the jacket within the promised time and the quality of the material was excellent. However, I will be returning this product with the intention of buying something heavier from Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Love it, wish I had bought two.
Date published: 2016-12-23
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointed Tight fitting, especially in the arms, no way to wear layers underneath this jacket, and not warm enough on its own. Wind cuts right thru it, no windblock ability at all. Loaded up with features such as a hood, and waist draw string that would make one think this could be used in harsher weather, but what good is a waist draw string to keep out drafts if the fabric itself doesn't keep out drafts? Might be ok for a cool summer night or warm fall weather. But I honestly don't understand what this jacket was made for.
Date published: 2016-12-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Multipurpose Jacket This jacket is great for windy days, light drizzle days, and moderately cold days. It's my go-to, all-weather jacket for variable conditions in the early spring and late fall. The hoodie was an odd shape, but it's removable. So, I just took it off. Also, the collar is a bit "tall," but it's okay. I'm 6' tall and 185lbs. The medium fits me well.
Date published: 2016-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is Awesome.. This is honestly a must have product. Its really warm even in really cold temperatures.
Date published: 2016-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Jacket I've ever had This Jackey is really nice. It fits well and the outside layer is meant for weather while the inside layer keeps you warm, which is exactly what I wanted. The hood part is removable which I thought was pretty neat as well. I would reccommend this Jacket if your looking for something that isn't to big, casual looking, weather protective and can still keep you warm.
Date published: 2016-11-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coat Good coat I like the fact that the head is removable. It's a medium weight jacket good for everyday use. It would not be my snow jacket. With that said recommend it.
Date published: 2016-11-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Recommended with Concerns I love jackets. I ran a sport fishing boat in Alaska for 10 years...so I kind of get into this sort of thing. The jacket definitely runs a little small. I'm a usual medium, had to send back for the large. The material isn't your high quality soft shell like (north f***), but it is good to take the bite out and repel a little bit of moisture. The cuffs are strangely large and intended to be adjusted for normal wear. The hood is good, and is acceptable when closed up tight. There are hem adjusters, and the area where your mouth rests on the jacket when zipped up 100% is comfy...worth the price, but not premium quality. But *good* quality.
