Women’s Flash Forward™ Windbreaker Jacket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Windbreaker It works well as a windbreaker, but is very thin and probably not the best for rain. It runs a bit small so if you're planning on wearing it over clothes definitely go up a size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I haven't had the chance to wear this yet but after trying it on I can tell it will be a go-to when I need a light jacket. Great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this jacket, and wear it more than is probably socially acceptable. Unlike other rain jackets/windbreakers, this one is incredibly lightweight despite its heavy duty protection. It is well insulated, so you won't get sweaty and gross, but it will keep you toasty. Overall, would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a light jacket that does the job of a heavy one in windy/rainy weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This is exactly what I was looking for - a packable windbreaker that folds up/squishes down to almost nothing, and repels water for the 10 minutes at a time when I'm outside at work. Gets the job done perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Windbreaker This is definitely a wind breaker. Not a rain jacket. When receiving it I could see right away that it would not keep rain from seeping through over time. Very quickly it would not do well in the rain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and easy to carry I have worn this windbreaker out on a few hikes and so far it has served its purpose well. It is lightweight while still giving protection from the wind (although the winds have been light). When I have needed to take the jacket off it has been easy to put in my backpack without adding weight and bulk. I really like that it as a drawstring on the bottom of the jacket to keep it snug around my waist and not allow cold air in from the bottom and keeps heat in. It fits true to size. The material doesn't feel cheap, but it is thin and my only worry is that it will rip easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trailblazers I love my Women’s Flash Forward™ Windbreaker Jacket>It's perfect for those windy days when you just need a little light jacket. It's thin but not too thin, it fits true to size, it washes well in the washing machine and it's very easy to travel with. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish but Thin I received this as a gift for my 16th birthday yesterday, and I'm loving it! I'm usually a medium, as I like baggier clothes (I'm 5'2"), but I went down a size after reading some reviews. The windbreaker fits like a glove and it looks super cute with all my outfits. However, I live in the suburbs of Chicago, and it's always windy here...literally 24/7. The windbreaker doesn't do much in terms of protection, but it does shield you from drizzling rain. 4/5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Windbreaker I absolutely love this windbreaker. It not only blocks wind but repels water as well. It is just enough jacket on those 70 degree days. You can fold it up and it fits snug in a purse. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly Made Incredibly thin it doesn't work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wind goes right through it! Honestly, I want to love this windbreaker. But I wore it out to a fairly windy site and the wind went right through it! Left me absolutely freezing! It is made of basically plastic. If youre going for a windbreaker, i'd go for something that actually does its job :( I feel bad that this doesnt work because it's honestly really cute and the color is adorable. But if youre looking for a windbreaker that actually stops the wind, it just doesn't perform... at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional & feminine Great windbreaker with added perk of a hood. Vibrant color- I purchased orange-bronze shade - packable and crushable and any wrinkling falls out quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I was looking for a good windbreaker-type jacket, and came across this. I love it!!! It runs a little large, but overall I don't mind, it makes it easy to layer if I want. It's thinner than I thought, which I actually ended up really loving--I live in Southern California, so it's nice to have a light jacket that does the job against wind and rain. And it also makes it extremely easy to roll up and pack!! Overall super happy with my purchase. I'm 5'3", 135lbs and ordered a medium.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Windbreaker I ordered XS and I feel like its a little big on me. I always went to the store and bought jackets. I start ordering online recently, and yet I am satisfied with all the products that I ordered online. I really like the speed of the delivery. This particular product seems to be a little thinner than I expected. It is to wear during early fall or late summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I just moved to a new climate, and running outside has been...an adventure. Yesterday, it was rainy and cool, so I pulled out my new windbreaker. It worked great, except for one tiny thing: my shirt sleeves got a little wet. I liked that the jacket isn't too tight on my wrists, but it was a little bummer that I got wet, since it was so cool (45 degrees F). It was great to take off the jacket and be mostly dry while I was driving home, though. It is a great jacket for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect windbreaker Jacket is nice and roomy and will be perfect for layering. It will also be great for traveling as it will fold/roll up to fit in any bag/suitcase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love this jacket. I've purchased other jackets as well for my family. Great price and quality. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my dauther loves it Bought this for my 14 YO b/c she hates heavy coats that restrict movement. This has been great for rainy sporting events and on days when you need something more than a tshirt. We went with a large so that she could layer underneath if needed. I'd still say the large is a little smaller than the typical large.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not water resistant Wore this on a rainy day and soaked right thru this water resistant and water repellent jacket. Not raining hard either but enough to soak thru. Really surprised and disappointed cause columbia jackets are pretty much all water resistant but not this one. Learned the hard way!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight jacket I have not worn the jacket more than trying it on. I bought it for fall and for vacation. It will pack nice and light. Colors are perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I love the color of this jacket. I wore it to the coast this weekend and it kept me warm enough while hiking, but I didn't get to hot. I love the mesh pockets- they're perfect for collecting shells so that the pockets don't fill with sand. And they prevent my hands from getting sweaty.
Date published: 2017-08-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I ordered this jacket, and I'm glad I did! It's lightweight for outdoor activities, like hiking, and for cold nights, you can fit a hoodie under it.
Date published: 2017-07-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great It's a great product. Slightly tight on the chest area. If you have a large chest then size up! I am a 36DDD and that was my only problem. Still fits but squishes the girls!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I was looking for the lightest waterproof jacket, and this is it! It's been pretty hot this summer, and I am taking a trip to Florida so I wanted a jacket that would cool me off and keep me dry. It's true to size, and I love the size of the hood and the quality of the material. Pockets are deep too, which is good for keeping even he biggest phone dry as well. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and Practicality Especially, since the price is so low, I would jump on this, especially if you're out on the water a lot. I found the quality wasn't as high as most products, but wasn't terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lightweight jacket I saw this online and was not sure I would like the color combination (pink/pulse) so I went to Dicks to try it on. Loved it-much better than pictured. The pink is lighter than shown online. I am larger on top and this jacket fits perfectly and camouflages being top heavy. Very lightweight for traveling purposes. I am 5'2" and approx 145.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My new windbreaker Perfect weight for a windbreaker if you live in a warm place. I'm 5'3" 137 lbs. the Large fits well altho I wish a bit wider in the chest. I'll use for hiking/biking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Windbreaker Just what I wanted for cooler summer weather or while out in the boat. I like that the fabric is not stiff and the color is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cute but horrible quality I fell in love with this jacket from the second I tried it on. However, there are no directions on the tag as to how to wash it so I washed it with all my other clothes. After the second wash, the "Columbia" decal had completely peeled off leaving an ugly outline of stickiness and the cheap white paint on the zipper had completely come off. This shotty work is NOT worth $40 and I am unbelievably disappointed in Columbia. I usually really enjoy this company's products but this windbreaker isn't worth the price it costs. DO NOT BUY, I recommend any other brand for specifically windbreakers as this is poorly manufactured and overpriced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lightweight windbreaker I like this windbreaker. It's very lightweight, protect you against, sun, wind and rain. I have not used it in the rain yet, but it's a good windbreaker for hot weather. It's very thin, so it won't protect you against cold. I love the look and the colors. Very happy with the purchase, it would be nice to have in a light weight jacket, but it only came in windbreaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cooler days This jacket is very lightweight, soft, and stylish. It doesn't provide warmth but does cut the wind chill. I ordered it to keep the sun off my arms while fishing and hiking. It's a perfect transition piece for cool mornings to warm afternoons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent but runs big Prodcuct is amazing and the color is really cute. I received medieval and white. It runs about a size big and the bottom does come with draw strings but they are hard to tie. Overall it does keep me dry and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light Jacket This jacket has been perfect for spring weather that can be unpredictable. It is made of light materials, so it shouldn't really be used to try to stay warm. However, it has been good for layering, and it is waterproof. I ordered an XL because I had a Columbia hoodie that was XL. This is a little big for me, but it would be good for layering when I am out in the rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN’S FLASH FORWARD™ WINDBREAKER JACKET This is a great product because its true to size. Not too big not too small and they fit like windbreakers should fit. It is especially useful this season because it keeps you dry and does not make you feel hot. Overall it's an awesome product. I now own 3 of these jackets. :)

Date published: 2017-04-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to for spring I have worn this almost every day since I got it! Over a hoody for extra warmth, over my cycling jacket, too. Its not too noisy, which can happen with wind breakers, so I wear it in the office too :). My daughter had a kid's version and she loves it too. All around a great buy!
Date published: 2017-03-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall nice jacket. I noticed the COLUMBIA logo was silkscreened on, what happened to when they were stitched? The quality is decent on my jacket. It does run a little small in the sense that it fits with just a tshirt underneath it. If I had a sweater or thicker shirt on it would be snug.
Date published: 2017-03-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outershell only This is not a lined windbreaker, so it is very thin. It is splash proof, and feels kind of like tent or parachute material. It is nice to wear over a long sleeve shirt, if it is chilly and you do not wear anything under it you will be cold. Fitting is true to it's size, and very comfortable, but if you are looking for a warmer jacket they do a sell a lined version of this one!
