Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't have enough This jacket is super light weight, warm and looks amazing. I like the adjustable cuffs and upper chest side pocket which by the way all 3 pockets have zippers to lock and guard your goods and keep them from getting lost. I have this exact same jacket in 2 different colors and looking forward to wearing them anytime chilly weather calls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MEN’S PHG ASCENDER™ SOFTSHELL JACKET I'm wearing this jacket as I type this review! This is a comfortable fitting jacket. I'm a bigger guy and it fits me just the way I like it. I ordered a 2XL and it is just right. I like the zippered pockets as well. Don't hesitate when lookong to purchase this jacket. It's good against the wind as well however it doesn't have the insulation to handle extremely cold temperatures but that's not why I purchased it! Great overall anytime kinda jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PHG Soft sell jacket Very comfortable, & keeps you warm even when it’s windy. Very nice to wear looks great. Like that u can adjust the cuffs because the ones that can’t be adjusted sometimes stretch over time. I have two Columbia soft shell jackets 1 I wear in the woods the other I wear as a nice jacket to go out in they both perform well for everything I use them for. Keeps u dry for awhile not completely water resistant but that’s not the use for the jacket but works well for a period, holds heat in real good and also feels really good on the inside doesn’t irritate your skin. I also don’t like wearing big jackets even when it’s cold so if your looking for a mid size jacket that will be as warm as a big jacket I would highly recommend this jacket for you or anyone else. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PHG ASCENDER This Jacket is the best light weight jacket I own now. I thought it would not be warm as light as it is but it is perfect. I would recommend the jacket to anyone looking for a thin warm jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely satisfied I actually bought 4 of these jackets (black w/camo) for the men in our family. They absolutely love their jackets and they fit perfectly. The quality and style is exceptional. I've been told they're great in the rain too. Great sleeve length. Very satisfied & happy that my daughter found them in an Academy store, but we checked online and discovered a discount promo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Casual Jacket I bought this jacket as a gift. The PHG symbol on this jacket really sets it apart from other brands. When you see the pfg or the phg symbol, you recognize that it is a Columbia product. For this feature to be present on this jacket makes you love the Columbia brand. Also the collar is unique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loved it! It's light but still warm. And only having the black with the camo on the inside of the collar is a great design. He loves camo but having the majority of the jacket black makes it look nicer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft shell jacket This is the perfect jacket. Thin enough when only a light jacket is needed. Also makes for a great jacket to pair with a heavier coat if needed when it's freezing. Love the color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Soft and quiet shell with a warm fleece lining. Recommend this jacket for all outdoor activities, but quiet enough for hunting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has poor features The men's phg ascender soft shell jacket is too big for sizing so sitting down it bulks out and makes doing anything awkward also when it rains I does very little to keep you dry I had cold rain constantly go down my back also the bottom of the jacket doesn't hold close to your person around the waist when the wind blows it goes right up your jacket and addition to that it's not very thick so it does little to keep you warm so add that all together and your shivering because this jacket does very poorly on its functions

Rated 4 out of 5 by from India ink??? Let me start by saying that this is a great jacket. I am just a little disappointed in the color. I ordered the India ink jacket expecting to get a purple-ish jacket - this was not the case, the jacket is more gray/charcoal. Just a heads-up if you are looking for purple.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love the product yet disappointed I bought this jacket with the thoughts of it being a purple jacket like the pictures suggest. Yet when I got it it was not purple but a grayish color.. So beware if you want it because it looks purple it's not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Won't be disappointed Wow! What a great jacket at an awesome price! True to size….bought this as a gift for my brother in law…Looks much more expensive than $56 bucks! Classic look and just enough Camo :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket This jacket looks sharp! I love the camo accents and will be able to wear this jacket in most situations. Not meant for extreme cold temperatures but with a good layer underneath you could probably be ok to around 40*.
