Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect windbreaker This is the best windbreaker I ever owned. It’s very lightweight and very compact compared to others that I’ve owned in the past. It fits nice, I was thinking about getting extra-large but I’m glad I did not because the large I got is roomy enough. I’m very happy and satisfied with my jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great windbreaker This windbreaker folds up very small and has been great in the rain. Very lightweight and functional for spring weather. Probably will get another to leave in the car.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a real wind breaker. The product name caught my eye and I bought it. Turns out its not a windbreaker though. It protects well against breeze and rain, but not wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Weight Jacket Great jacket to take on a Spring trip to Washington DC. It can be packed away in a backpack just in case the weather changes. It will work well for a cool night as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect light jacket! This is the perfect light weight jacket that you need just to keep the mist or light wind off of you. I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too small for Large, off the size chart It is a very nice, light, and foldable to almost nothing if you want to pack it in a carryon. The colors are spectacular and so is the tailoring. The problem is that it is way off the size chart. I usually order Large with Columbia and had no problems so far. This one, the zipper needs about 3" at the bottom to come together, although at chest level it would be okay if you could zip it up that far. Columbia ought to let this to be known before one orders and have to pay for the return shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight wind breaker/rain jacket With unseaonally cool nights this summer, this jacket has been perfect for sitting on the patio in front of a fire pit. Great quality, light weight and comfortable. It's perfect for cool spring and fall days as a jacket and works well during a light rain to keep you dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality product but not as advertised Lighter than expected. Product states that there is a mesh liner. However, the liner is only in the pockets. The zipper appears flimsy and not designed to be zipped quickly. This jacket would be a great summer or early fall wind breaker. I have larger than average shoulders that don't always fit well in jackets and coats, but this jacket was a great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Windbreaker This is my most favorite lightweight windbreaker. Ideal for those temperate days - and convenient to layer. Packs into a small volume. Good fit. Well constructed; but remember the fabric is light - use caution regarding abrasion or straining. Best for casual wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our weather I needed a light shell for our Puget Sound weather. Even in the summer we are too cool for shirtsleeves. In the fall & spring it will be perfect for all day use. Also it is attractive

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Northwest After purchasing this item, and others I found that, especially in the Northwest with our rain the coat keep me dry with a comfortable fitting. The only change I might suggest is to have a good that folds up into the collar as on the Northwest we do not believe in umbrella. A little rain on the head is not a bad thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good and fits good, but poor quality zipper Everything good about jacket except poor quality zipper. Sad, but is light weight good in wind and rain, but have to slip it over your head to get it off most of the time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Men's Flashback Windbreaker Nice lightweight windbreaker. No problem with the quality or workmanship. HOWEVER, I was disappointed in how the jacket just hangs, and has a tendency to fall off my shoulders if not zipped at least part way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Practical I live in Florida and this product has already served as functional for the many rainstorms. However, I primarily purchased this product because I am going to college next year in New York. I already know that this product is going to serve as an incredibly functional outer-layer to protect against cold rain and snow. It is very thin and light, so it won't lay heavy on top of my other layers. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp-looking windbreaker As far as windbreakers go, this does exactly what you would want. The fit and styling sets it apart. This is very sleek and sporty at the same time. Really like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT This is a man's jacket bought for me a women. I didn't like the women's plus size jackets so I check the size chart on this man's jacket and it fits perfect. Because this one had so many color options I found this purple/navy color was the one for me. LOVE IT.....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light every things as shown but the one thing missing was the laces at the bottom of the jacket. fits good,go one size down for a snug to body feel and true to size if you want a regular loose not big nor snug. just right kind of feel. any larger is preference

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Windbreaker! I got this in the Shark/Pine Green color and it looks so fresh! This is simply a windbreaker with no lining and water resistant fabric. The water beads off this jacket in light rains and mists, but you'll need a different jacket if you'll be in a downpour. I live in Vancouver, WA and work in Portland, OR and this works fine in typical rainy days here. Excellent to use during hikes! Pair it with a sweater and you're set! I'm 5'10" and 210 lbs and the Large fits me perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Very Lightweight Windbreaker Based on other reviews I bought a Medium instead of my usual Large and it fits perfectly. Both sleeve length and waist fit just right. Can't go wrong with this one for buth good wind and light rain protection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleeves a little short The Sleeves are a little short for me. Excellent at stopping both wind and rain. Doesn't keep in heat. Recommend wearing a hoodie underneath it will keep you warm in like 20 degrees and looks fresh

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the coat I love the coat but it runs fairly big. I chose to get a small and it fits like a medium.
Date published: 2015-03-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the look but could be improved The look is sharp (I purchased black) but like a lot of Columbia clothing, it's oversized. When it's zipped up and the drawstring is tied the material around the stomach bunches up. I feel like I have to constantly pull it down so it doesn't pop out. Otherwise, it seems to be wind and water resistant and will be a good addition to my Spring clothes.
