Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with the jacket - will recommend it Runs a little large compared to the marked size. Other than that, it's a great jacket. I bought an L sized grey-black jacket with pink zip. Looks good too. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! I needed a wind-resistant, flexible layering piece for biking commuting. This absolutely fits the bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful lightweight multipurpose jacket This jacket is great for the cooler months of the year. The fleece provides a nice layer of warmth, and I love that the jacket is water and wind resistant. I would say the only drawback for me is the cord at the hem. When untied, it can easily get caught on nearby objects. Otherwise, this jacket is accurately advertised and a worthwhile purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket! Bought as a Christmas gift and although it runs a tad small it is a great jacket for a great price. Was thicker than I expected but that's a great upside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter jacket This is an all around great jacket. It was a gift and I like the waist and the fit of the jacket. I plan to buy more for other friends and family. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flash Forward Lined Windbreaker This jacket quality exceeded my expectations. The weight was perfect for the climb I was planning on. The size seemed to be a bit smaller than another Columbia fleece jacket I have had for years. Perhaps the sizing has been adjusted. Because I now live in Mexico I ordered both a s and m to insure I got the right fit for my Malinche climb. I kept the medium and it was perfect with light layering and helped with the wind. I am 5’4”, 135lbs. Hope this helps. And yes - I returned the small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is versatile To be honest I just received this jacket and have only worn it outside once as the weather hasn't really been cold enough yet. But the day I did wear it oh my is it soft and cozy. I ended up taking the jacket off during my 3 mile walk home from work. I was able to roll this jacket up into the hood and tuck into my backpack. I am looking forward to using in the cooler/windy weather just ahead here in the NorthEast. This jacket is so cozy I often wear in house to keep me warm instead of turning up the thermostat. It's also quite cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Columbia This jacket is everything I hoped it would be and more. Lightweight but keeps me warm and dry. I get compliments on it each time I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!!!~~:) I ordered the whitened pink,pulse color. It's very true to the picture. Even better in person actually! The material of both the fleece and windbreaker are very soft and comfortable. The fleece lined all of the coat and hood but stops on the sleeves where the pink breaks and the other color begins. Not a negative just an FYI. I thought it would feel funny but it doesnt at all. It's not form fitting and can fit a sweatshirt comfortably underneath which I was worried it might not. I am 120lbs 5ft 3in and ordered a small it fits perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and attractive Such a comfortable jacket and it looks attractive too. I just wish Columbia made a version that was soft and lined like this windbreaker, but was fully waterproof rather than being minimally resistant. I always wish I could wear this cozy windbreaker in rainy weather, but it just doesn't cut it for wet conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very light to carry and provides great warmth. Protects from wind perfectly. I use it when I am biking, very convenient product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket is wonderful! The color is exceptional. It is soft both on the inside and the outside. I walk in it every day. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft and pretty I think my issue is that I'm curvy- not big-- I'm 5'6 and a size 8-- but curvy. I had initially ordered the large based on other reviews, and I was swimming it it. I then ordered the Medium, and it's fits great, except the bottom, which hits my upper thigh--it's not super tight, just not as loose as I would have liked. Still happy with this beautiful, soft jacket though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jacket Its a great jacket its an extra large which is my normal size..... Its just a little to short in the arms

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flash forward lined windbreaker This is a great windbreaker, although it does run a bit small. Love the colors, warmth, and the fact that it does well repelling water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the colors The colors are really nice and the top fits well. I think it will be nice to wear in late fall and will provide warmth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Attractive, lined windbreaker Great windbreaker if you need a bit more than a shell jacket. I am a petite and slender female. I prefer a looser, longer fit in my tops and jackets. I ordered a large in this item, but I still found it a bit short in the length. I liked the color. I had ordered the graphite, shark jacket. I thought the bit of pink gave the jacket some pop. I also liked the light weight fleece lining. Unfortunately the fleece lining inside the sleeves ended at the point where the graphite and shark colors met, that is at the seam between the two colors. I also found the sleeves way too long for my arms. In addition, I could not accept the lack of cord locks on the pink "strings" at the base of the zipper or the neck area of the hood. I returned the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice coat Bought this coat for my daughter going to London on a Girl Scout trip. Perfect for a little cold and rainy. Too hot for Spain, but worked well in Sweden at 60 to 70 range. Lining inside just the right amount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windbreaker I have wore this more than my spring jacket... very comfortable and if it starts to rain no need to grab another jacket. Very durable and functional. Great product A+ in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! Best jacket for "in between" weather, when you're not sure if it's really cold but it's not really warm. I always have it handy for the frozen food section at the grocery store and when I go to see a movie because I usually sit where the air conditioner blows on my neck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I love this lined jacket. It is so soft and warm enough for a cool spring day. Love, love, love...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Jacket I've owned a few Columbia jackets and this is now my new favorite. To start off, it's absolutely adorable. The colors are pretty true to what is displayed on the website. The fleece lining makes the lightweight jacket warm enough for cooler days. It runs true to size. The only downside I have is that the fleece ends about mid-forearm. I would prefer if it went throughout the whole sleeve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight Jacket This Jacket is so comfortable and light weight. Has a soft material inside to keep you warm but not to heavy to feel weighed down. Love the color want to get one in each color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I have a wilind breaker jacket, however was looking for something with a light lining. Living in Southern California, we do have cool mornings, and then it warms up during the day. I have worn this jacket to the beach, mountains, indooors, outdoors, etc. Best to layer with as well. Love the color too, typically, not a pink person, but have received more compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I recently bought this jacket and I love it. It is lightweight but really keeps the wind out. The lining is super soft and it has big pockets to hold your essentials. Absolutely a great wind breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I ordered this coat to be used as a rain jacket, and I absolutely love it! I am 5'9 and about 140lbs; I ordered a medium and it fit perfectly! The jacket is not the most breathable material but it serves it purpose. It has zipper pockets , which are lined with the same polyester material as the outside of the jacket. The inside of the jacket itself is lined with a paper thin layer of fleece. The fleece provides comfortable layer for your skin instead of the polyester material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product fulfilled my expectations. The jacket is light and airy, but also warm. It fits perfectly as well and would recommend!
