Women’s Flash Forward™ Hooded Down Jacket – Plus Size is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hooded jacket I bought the non hooded one in black and loved it so I got the hooded one too but in the blue green. I wear it more than the black one. It's very warm for as light weight as it is. Great for North Carolina winters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from *Runs Small in the Waist I just got it, so I can't comment to how warm it will be on the trail, BUT it's TOO narrow in the hips and bulky in the shoulders and upper arms. It feels like a man's cut. I would return it if there was another option for plus size women's packable down jackets right now (off season). I'm 5'6" and between size 18 and 20 in pants (usually 20 because I like to be comfortable) and 18 in tops (my chest is not large)- I ordered a 2X in this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooded Flash Forward This is a great jacket for layering under a waterproof shell. It has a lot of warmth with little bulk. I've worn it during light freezing rain and the water repellancy was decent. In colder conditions this would work best as a layering piece.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I ordered 5 coats for myself and my children, they are all very thin, poor quality, and a total waste of money, I tried to return them to only find out that I have to pay the return shipping fee! I should have stuck with North Face, I will NEVER purchase this brand again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! This runs smaller than the other Columbia jackets that I have. I love it! It feels comfortable and is not to bulky but keeps me warm and dry. It was great when it was cool and I was out in a light rain. Great coat for flying because it will be compact in a carry on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ColumbiaRocks The jacket is pretty, but sleeve openings are way, way too tight. That part of the jacket feels like a size XL. I haven't had this problem with Columbia in the past.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Jacket was cut small esp towards the waist. I bought the jacket because of the hood and was disappointed that it ran way to small and hood was also small didn't cover my entire head and for the record I don't have a large head

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BLC123 This jacket has no loft whatsoever. I initially thought it would puff up but it never did so I had to return it.
