Rated 4 out of 5 by from She loves it I purchased the flash forward windbreaker for my daughter for Christmas she loves it and wears it all the time. My only complaint and reason for not putting 5 stars Is it is really thin and could've been a little larger but no reason to actually return it. I would recommend it but it's definitely a spring windbreaker. I do wish it was thicker. I have a much less expensive one that's thicker than this. But Overall my teenager is the one who wears it and aside from wanting it a little bigger but she is completely satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my rain jacket! I bought this jacket for a trip I was going to take. It was ideal because it is light weight and can easily be brought anywhere! I love that the sleeves were long enough, it fit well, and I think the cut off where the colors switch is in a flattering spot. I would recommend this rain jacket to anyone looking for one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-To Light Adventure Jacket This jacket is so much more than just a windbreaker! If you're looking for a light and dependable jacket - look no further! This jacket is perfect for rain or shine, spring or summer. The lightweight and water resistant jacket is my go-to light adventure jacket. Whether I'm out and about either on the lake, river, dirt roads in Nevada or various trails around Lake Tahoe - you won't see me leaving the house without this bad boy packed in my daypack. I have countless Columbia jackets and various goods for all seasons: light weight and heavy winter styles, and this one surely does please just like the rest of my Columbia outerwear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cbeck Ordered this as I needed just a lightweight windjacket that packs small for boating. Works great. Love that the hood has ties to hold it over my ears. Some jackets just have some elastic which lets hood fall off head in the wind Would definitely suggest it to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hooded Wind Breaker Great jacket to stuff in your tennis bag or a backpack for something lite to pull on. I got the blue and white. Like the colors because they're nautical looking and I needed a lite jacket for the beach. Nothing bad to say about this jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible jacket! I needed a windbreaker for a trip to Scotland this summer, and have always LOVED Columbia coats and jackets... this one tho, is MY FAVE! The color, Midieval/White is more gorgeous in real life and I orderd the 1X so I can put a thicker long sleeve under on cooler rainy days. This jacket exceeds my expectation, thank you Columbia!
Date published: 2017-05-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scrunchable I got a 3X and it's bigger than needed around the middle but the arms fit more like a blouse, so I will not be able to wear a sweatshirt under it as was my plan. It's not been tested yet, but I'm sure it will be great for our Alaskan cruise in July and the drizzly weather that Oregon is famous for. The light blue color shown matched the color of my jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jacket I thought this might have a liner so I was disappointed that it didn't. It looked like it did on the website. But I still like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from zipper the only thing is that the plastic zipper is a little hard to get started, other then that the coat is great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My everyday go to! I've ordered two this month and I absolutely love them! My go to jacket due to the weight and material! The fit is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I have always loved the Columbia brand. I am a 2X. The fit is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome sauce If you want a lightweight jacket perfect for the rainy Northwest or anywhere else buy this jacket. Water just beads off and it dries very quick. I got this jacket because I needed a lightweight jacket for spring and it works perfectly. This is the greatest jacket I own. With this jacket a grownup can play in the rain again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I needed a light-weight jacket for spring-time walking, and this fits the bill perfectly. It's comfortable and roomy without being too large. The large pockets comfortably held a larger handkerchief. I'll be wearing this jacket for awhile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent wind blocker This jacket is perfect. Large enough to layer, light as a feather and soft. Packs up into nothingness, but is there when you need it. The grey and mint color is very pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my windbreaker Bought it Monday and had it by Thursday. I'm in love with it and can't wait to shop more from their online website. Very comfy and thin so I can wear a hoodie under it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... The hood is really small. It's a very thin coat, but works for just keeping dry.
Date published: 2017-03-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this windbreaker Absolutely love this windbreaker. Needed something to keep me dry even though the temperatures are warm which happens a lot in the Spring in Oregon Does not add any extra warmth but I have other coats for that. Loved it so much I bought a second one in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent light weight jacket This jacket is perfect for cool mornings or breezy days. Fit is very true to size (unlike many of the fleece products from Columbia). This jacket won't keep you warm, as much as it helps knock the chill off....it's super light weight (no lining), which I love. Great color and design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this jacket!!! I bought this jacket for myself as a spring jacket. It's very lightweight and comfortable. The color block coordination is a perfect style. I really love this jacket. The fit is also great. This is a perfect jacket for a spring in Chicago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice! I love the color of the jacket but I could've gotten a 2x but overall this is a nice jacket. Now I have to order 2 for my kids!
Date published: 2016-03-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An almost perfect light weight windbreaker I love this jacket. It's the perfect weight for biking or shoving in the bottom of your purse for an emergency rain jacket. My only complaint is that I wish this jacket came with a pocket or bag you could stuff it in to make shoving it in your purse just a bit easier. If it had that, this jacket would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I wasn't disappointed when I received my jacket in the mail & it came in a timely manner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extremely Thin I returned this product today, I received it A LOT faster than expected. I should have read the reveiws, this jacket is EXTREMELY THIN. Paper thin. Feels a little rubbery. The color is true to the picture, I ordered the stormy blue and loved the color. I ordered a 3x which is usually a bit big on me, this jacket fit and was right on my stomach so everyhting was obvious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plus size windbreaker Miracle of miracles, it's a plus size jacket whose sleeves are long enough for a taller lady. I'm 5'9" and the sleeve length is just right. The material is great quality and the styling is fresh. I have the purple/gray combination and it looks great with denim. The fit is close, which I prefer to extra fabric flapping around. The fabric is thin and silky, and floats over a t shirt. It's not for a cold day, but it will keep the wind off your skin on a windy day. Highly recommend, and I think I'm going to get one for my daughter, too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from flimsy Overall the jacket is cute.but the material is too thin.
Date published: 2016-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket & love the fit! The jackets that I purchased are great & I love the fact that the jacket is a little large as sweaters or other apparel can be worn underneath it! I wish that the jackets had inside pockets, either using velcro or a zipper to hold other items in place, but I can make do with the deep outside pockets, as I don't carry a purse. Other than that, the jacket is really great & I love the fact I can wear it through most of the spring, summer and fall, on the warm days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only Online I was very happy to finally find a women's windbreaker in a 3X. Can't find in stores. Love the color. Only complaint is that the mesh lining doesn't run inside the upper body of the jacket.
Date published: 2016-02-11
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thin Just be aware, this jacket is very thin and while it might be waterproof, you'd have to wear a long sleeve shirt under it to stay warm. Even a thin cotton lining would have been helpful.
