Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this because I needed a windbreaker that wasn’t too expensive. I love the price and retro colors. It was a little snug but super flattering. The day after I got it it was super windy and it did it’s deal. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Windbreaker! I wore my windbreaker out on several occasions and was complimented by people I know. The windbreaker is true to size, comfortable, breathable, and overall an excellent product. I bought two in different colors. I enjoy using it to run as well at the gym and at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greater than it appears when I received the product itself I realized it was thinner than I thought but it stills function to a high standard as any other columbia product which truly shocked me & the price on it is worth it as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flash Forward Windbreaker Lightweight but effective in blocking wind and rain.
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Weight Windbreaker True to size. Lightweight and great for runners that need a little windbreaker. Recommend for those who layer underneath. It is not exactly for warmth so if you are looking for that, might want to go for something heavier.
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from light weight, big on functionality Great funtional jacket light weight in a great big world. Fits great, built for the task
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent I bought this jacket because I had previously bought a windbreaker from Columbia that I was very satisfied with and I thought this would be of a similar quality; however, this jacket is extremely light and does not offer much protection from light breezes or wind in general.
Date published: 2017-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lightweight jacket. Jacket blocks wind well and keeps you dry in the rain. I would definitely recommend anyone who needs a lightweight jacket to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect windbreaker My daughter was looking for a windbreaker that was similar to one she had for soccer but not as expensive and this fit the bill perfectly.
Date published: 2017-12-08
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!
Date published: 2017-11-19
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 4 out of 5 by from Love It fits perfect I love it !
Date published: 2017-10-28
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!
Date published: 2017-10-26
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.
Date published: 2017-10-26
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.
Date published: 2017-10-22
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.
Date published: 2017-10-19
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.
Date published: 2017-10-18
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.
