Women's Flashback™ Windbreaker Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashionable and functionable Purchased this windbreaker in the purple and turquoise color scheme and loved the throwback retro look! I have received so many compliments from a ton of people. It is also functionable in the summer for wind and sun protection as well as perfect for layering in the winter. I bought a M ( I’m 5’6 and 130lbs) I would recommend a size up if you truly want to layer, but if not purchase your regular size. Definitely water resistant not water proof! Would buy again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of my go to jackets I love, love, love this windbreaker! It's the perfect weight for a throw on and go jacket for those days you need a light layer. I have gotten so many compliments on it. If it gets restocked, I will probably buy another color!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very lightweight, almost like wearing nothing This is a cute jacket purchased this mainly to wear not for the warmth because it is too lightweight but to wear indoors or even at beach and during fall when your other jackets are just too heavy. I like ithisni can keep it in my tote. No lining inside so definitely would be great as I mentioned for a cool day. In my opinion it runs a tad smaller but not a very noticeable difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packable, lightweight, good colors I like to travel with functional clothing that doesn't take up much room. It's great when it's stylish and functional, too. I chose the black with purple and teal. It is light enough to stuff in its own pocket for packing yet I think it will be a great wind and,light rain barrier. I would prefer another inch or so in length, but I wouldn't call it short. Sometimes with Columbia I need an XL in jackets, but the L in this fits fine. I'm not planning to wear heavy layers under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic! I looove this jacket! My husband was gifted a men's version of this jacket for his birthday and after 'borrowing' his so many times I decided to order one for myself. The design is classic and it's crazy comfortable. Everyone should own one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay jacket for its price I found this jacket to be only okay. I thought it was going to be a lot thicker than it actually is...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for SoCal outdoors/travel I purchased this jacket mostly because I love the retro look of it. I'm also a sucker for anything with "America" themed colors. This jacket is perfect for travel, hiking, and kayaking. It can be worn by itself on warm days to protect from the rain or layered with a fleece pullover. I bought mine with room to spare on purpose for layering. It's very thin so it packs up very easy in the side pocket of my backpack and can easily fit in my fanny pack as well. I also bring it with me to theme parks just for the water rides so I don't get soaked. It's an all around multi-use jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but no hood I really liked my last windbreaker, but after a fall it had small abrasions and tears and needed to be replaced. I like the colors of this new jacket. Keep in mind that it is very lightweight. But it does break the wind and keeps you warm. It easily packs away in a small amount of space. I do wish it had a hood...even if it was hidden in the collar for use as needed. However this sale price was well worth the buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True to Image and Size This windbreaker is exactly as it looks. The material is very light and breathable. It was fine with light rain and it's packable. The colors are very pretty and bright. I had the blue and red windbreaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain-free, 90s-style I can't say how much I love this jacket. Love! I had the chance to test it out on a recent trip to DC when it was both pouring and just sprinkling. The jacket kept me nice and dry outside as I was walking around and it also shielded me from the cold AC inside the building where I was staying. The jacket does what it's intended to do and makes you look great while doing so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size fits me well... I'm happy that I ordered the windbreaker. I was hesitant at first because I was not sure if the size would fit me. I just followed the size guide and when I received the product, I'm just so glad it fits me well. Now I used the windbreaker all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light jacket! This jacket is perfect. It is lightweight and just what you need for cool summer nights or early mornings. It doesn't take up much room if you want to pack it into your backpack. You can even put on a thin layering jacket underneath and it makes it a little warmer. It runs true to size. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great spring or summer windbreaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect light weight windbreaker Love this zip up windbreaker. Perfect for cutting that nasty wind on a breezy day. It works on a cool evening for holding in a bit of that body heat. And it packs to the size of a wallet for easy packing. This little jacket will be with me on all my travels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colors and quality are first rate I am so thrilled with this purchase. Often similar products (not Columbia) depict brilliant colors, but the actual product when you receive it -- not so much :-(. I love this jacket for primarily two reasons. (1) brilliant colors (pink and green Women's Flashback Windbreaker Jacket) and size. The XL is generous, for those that need it. I'm in love! Thank you Columbia!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Lightweight Jacket Absolutely love this, it's so comfortable, and does the job too. Also fun retro aspect is my dad had a Columbia jacket from the 90s in the exact same colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for running I bought this jacket primarily for running as well as hiking. It has x2 great pockets but NO zippers! Also a little snug around the bottom (I'm a small person). Could be longer in back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is exactly what I was looking for - a thin, lightweight, windbreaker that can be worn in both cooler and warmer weather... plus it's cute! I spend a lot of time out on construction sites and this is the perfect jacket to layer with - the neon yellow even matches my safety vest ;) Size is fairly true to size, if you are concerned about it being too small, order the next size up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great but doesnt break any wind It is very thin...I thought it would have more weight to it. Kind of feels like I'm not wearing a jacket. It very cute, I get a lot of compliments but I didn't get it for that purpose. Kind of feel like I wasted my money but its whatever because it was on sale. Just know I will be looking for a thicker one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very lightweight This is a super light weight jacket! I have not used it yet, I bought it to use while in Hawaii in May for those pass by rain showers. I'm super excited because it's so light and should be perfect for the warm weather and easy to carry around without adding much extra weight! Also I said it runs a little small for the size, but not really. I guess it's not as XL as some other XL items that I've bought but fits nicely- so that's my reasoning for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic windbreaker It's super soft and lightweight, classic windbreaker material. I was hoping it would be really thin, like this old windbreaker I used to have in the 90's, and it's perfect! Very thin, like many other reviews have said. It fits like a 90's windbreaker too, loose enough to fit a sweatshirt under it and a little tighter at the cuffs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute! I LOVE this windbreaker. It is seriouslt the cutest thing, and I have gotten tons of compliments on it. The only thing is that it isn't reallt warm. It's super thin, BUT you can layer it. That's what's so great. I am 5'4 and 118 lbs, and I ordered a medium. It fits PERFECTLY, but it also has room to wear a normal jacket underneath for some warmth! LOVE it, and I totally recommend this product.
