Women’s Flash Forward™ Windbreaker Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 171.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Right Stuff This windbreaker jacket is exactly what I've been looking for. Sat at a windy football game with sideways rain. Kept me warm and almost completely dry. I know it's not waterproof, but for such a lightweight jacket, it kept me dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from True to size This jacket is a bit thin and not good for raining weather. After one machine wash no dryer the Columbia letters came off the Jacket. I still love the jacket!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Duper! I own several Columbia Flash Forward Jackets, short and long. I think they are Super Duper! I love the fabric. It's lightweight and soft. The colors are fun and yummy. These jackets are NOT designed for a drenching downpour. With an umbrella, they keep me warm and my clothing dry. I also wear my jackets on bright, sunny, and cool days. They are more versitile than a rain coat. I seldom wear clothing with advertising labels. However, I break that rule for these festive jackets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loves her jacket It’s perfect! It’s always hot in Louisiana. It’s great for rainy days and windy days without being heavy and making her hit. The two tone makes it extra attractive. She loves it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light outdoor jacket This jacket is perfect for fall and spring-like weather. It keeps the wind from overtaking your skin without also keeping you too warm at the same time. I am excited to keep using this when i'm out running errands or even on a run in the slightly cooler weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my purchase My daughter purchased this jacket last year and we would share wearing it. When I finally decided I wanted my own, I was happy to see the item still available! I am 125 lbs 5’7” and ordered a small. Love the fit, style, comfort and use when raining or a windy day!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Material too thin I really like the look and colors in the jacket but the material is extremely thin. I am a bit concerned that it may not last long and tear within the first few uses. It also fits a little smaller than most medium jackets do on me. So if you plan on wearing anything thick below the jacket, it may not work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Truly dissapointed I am a HUGE fan of Columbia gear, I would say 85% of my outdoors attire is Columbia. However this rain jacket majorly let me down. I used it for the First time on a lightly rainy day in Iceland, with my down jacked underneath it. I got SOAKED. It leaked at basically all of the seams, the entirety of the arms, and a good portion of the lower back. I understand it is not a rain jacket, hence water resistance in the description, but it was a light sprinkle. I was soaked all the way through in maybe 20 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value This jacket is a pretty basic windbreaker. Cinches around all the edges. That’s it. No fancy features. And it’s a great jacket for the value because lots of other brands have similar basic windbreakers for twice as much. Not the most stylish jacket ever, but the generous sizing means I can fit it over a fleece, and it’s at least stylish enough that I will wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Folds small! This is a great jacket when it might rain. Carried it with me every day while travelling. Used it for another layer of warmth a couple of times. This rain jacket folded up small enough to keep in my purse. Very lightweight and easy to fold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windbreaker is warm too This is my first time buying a windbreaker. I was concerned it may not feel warm in the wind but it's just right! I don't sweat in it nor feel too cold. I love the sheer soft material and the fit is not too long and not too short .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia windbreaker My favorite windbreaker so far!! Truly waterproof and lightweight. Perfect for spring!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from MY LOGO PEELED OFF!! After a few washes and wears of my Black Jacket, the white Columbia logo peeled away. This is disappointing because this was 40 big ones. If I buy a jacket this price, I wouldn't want it to fall apart. This is cheaply made and doesn't break any wind. There is no blue accent on mine and it honestly resembles a garbage bag. AVOID IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment This windbreaker is perfect for layering over warmer clothes or wearing over a tank for warmer days. Does the job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! It's perfect. I bought the sorbet, columbia grey windbreaker but some people mistake it for a rain jacket. I wear a large but I bought a medium. It fits better than I expected, it fits perfectly. I smile every time I see it, it's so beautiful. It looks exactly like the pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight but heavy in function! I read reviews, and researched other Columbia windbreaker jackets on sale and not. Yes, this one was on sale, but considering the ease of packing it for convenient portability, the Omni-Shield SPF 40, the nice soft fabric, choosing the beautiful sorbet/grey...I was very happy when it arrived. The Flash Forward Windbreaker is meant for somewhat warmer days. It affords protection from the sun and wind without that humidity-building effect. I purchased a Large to allow for a t-shirt, and at 5'8" and 145-ish lbs. I can easily flex, yet I am not boxy-sloppy. How nice to have a stylish windbreaker that folds down to fit in a small compartment of a backpack or tote pocket. If you already have a substantial windbreaker jacket, I would add this one as another seasonal Go-To.
