Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Comfort & Function Love the fit, comfort and function of this jacket. It blocks moisture and wind, feels soft and has durability without any added weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket and price Loved the jacket but I ordered a 2X which ran a bit small so sadly, I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional Durability The only issue I have with my jacket is that it doesn't have a hood, BUT I knew it didn't have one when I bought it. So it isn't even a problem. The fabric is wonderful and does the job in keeping you dry proving it's functional and durable in wind and rain. I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket This is a great looking jacket! The style is flattering and it is really comfortable. I do order a size up so that I can layer under it, so I did rate it as running a little small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Coat! I love this jacket! It is a perfect choice for between season weather changes in Western Maryland. It’s warm and water proof making it perfect for those late season snow showers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket I ordered a size up because I have big arms and I wanted to be able to slide it off and one easily when wearing long sleeves. It’s perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I absolutely love my Kruser Ridge™ Softshell Jacket from Columbia. I have this coat in a longer version and have always loved it and was so thankful that Columbia came out with a shorter version. This coat fits perfectly and is the right length for walking and driving. If you are an avid adventurer this is the coat for you. It keeps you warm without the bulk of a heavier coat. In my opinion this coat is awesome. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket This is my second Kruser Ridge Jacket. They fit well and look good. Outdoorsy but also a little fitted looking so they're great on the tennis court and also as a jacket to grab going out to dinner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Time Purchasing This Jacket....Love It! This is my second time purchasing this jacket. I purchased the pink version over a year ago & loved it so much that I decided to purchase the dynasty color recently. Jacket is true to size, it’s of great quality, & the blue is so beautiful. It’s kept me warm even though it’s still winter here. I would recommend this jacket to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Versatile jacket I found the soft shell jacket perfect to wear in and out of the office, especially when it’s windy/raining. Also, I have noticed that the weatherproofing has come up in handy as I have accidentally spilled tea on myself and have been pleased to know that it can be dried off quite easily. The jacket is light, and though I wouldn’t be able to wear another layer underneath (such as sweater) I feel that does more than adequate job of keeping me warm. So far I have bought 2 jackets (black/ blue) because I have been very pleased with the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy Fit I was pleasantly surprised by the fit of this jacket. I was looking for a nice Spring jacket, and this was perfect. I'ts warm enough for chilly mornings, yet not too warm later in the day. I love how the water beads up, and doesn't soak in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right! This Kruser Softshell jacket is a really good mid weight jacket. Ordered a 3X to allow for length and a sweatshirt or sweater, as Michigan winters pretty much demand two layers! Other reviews mentioned very long sleeves, which is true, but at 6'1", I need long sleeves! So, thanks, Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but runs small I order often from Columbia and always wear a 2x. This ran small but it was nice enough to go through the bother of returning this jacket and re-ording in a 3x. Blue is very pretty and as pictured.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for the PNW I love this jacket. Surplus green is my favorite color! I’m 5’8” 300# for reference. It is a little snug in my upper arms and across my chest (hence 4 star rating), but is fine with just a t shirt underneath. Keeps me warm and dry. The 3X would’ve been too big, I think. Arm length and length of jacket were perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boxy, men's style jacket This jacket is built exactly like a men's jacket, with a very boxy shape, big arms, and extremely long sleeves. It's as if someone in the Design office said, "Plus women are big like men, so let's just take a men's jacket, put the zipper on the other side, and slap a plus label on it." If a boxy, traditionally male style is what you're looking for, then you'll love this. However, I think most women who want a men's style jacket will just buy a jacket from the men's section. The quality of the jacket is good, and I like that the lining is just thick enough to keep you warm on a crisp day. However, the moment I put it on, I knew I wouldn't be able to wear it. The upper arms and chest area were baggy and puffed out, and the sleeves hung past my hands. It was extremely unflattering on me, and I wished I hadn't wasted my time. When I took it in for a return, the cashier held it up and immediately confirmed my reasons for returning it, which I had just explained. She even said, "This doesn't seem like a women's style. We have a men's jacket exactly like this."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm jacket I wanted a jacket that was a little heavier than a windbreaker for cold days on the golf course and this one was perfect. I ordered the 1X and it does fit a little snug. Most Columbia items in 1X fit me fine. So that is why I gave it 4 stars. But quality is 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket!!! Purchased this jacket and absolutely love it. Fits true to size and sleeve link is great. Very comfortable and keeps you warm even though its a light jacket. Love the 2 front zipper pockets. Very sleek and water and wind resistant. Ordered another one so I would have an extra!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not be more happy! I work for a large company and we wanted to get great quality jackets for our team of 15. Ordering was effortless, all different sizes in men's and women's were all in stock, all shipped together and received within a week. Numerous compliments from others. Thanks Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small through the bust I wanted to love this jacket, it is great quality but it was too tight through the busy fir bevtobwear with a medium weight sweater and the next size up is out of stock in the color I need.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I purchased this jacket as a lightweight jacket for fall and spring. Unfortunately, it was too small. I even bought a size up in case i was wearing a sweater and needed a little extra room. I expected it to be a little heavier material than it actually was, so I ended up returning it for something i actually could use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely Satisfied Great jacked, looks exactly like it does on the site, was a little smaller than I expected but it still fits well and looks great on! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing The Jacket is so Soft/Warm it fit just right. I was so happy with my purchase, that I’m think about gettting it in another color. The weather here in the Windy City is perfect for Women Softshell Kruser Ridge Jacket. Thank you Columbia for such an awesome product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Jacket, but sleeves are too long This fits pretty true to side. It's very well made and would serve as casual or slightly dressy. Elegant. However, the sleeves were way too long. I wish Columbia would give seperate plus sizing for tall/long armed women, and petite, short armed women.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Outdoor jacket The jacket is very thin, lightweight and mostly comfortable. It is a little stiff due to fabric it is made from. It is definitely water and wind resistant. I stayed warm in the early spring weather and felt comfortable. The steely blue color is sharp! Sleeve and waist length provide good coverage. I tried the 2xl first and the stomach area was much larger. This one has a more fitted waist area with my muffin tops, it is a bit more fitted...gotta lose those! Anyway, it is a great spring or fall jacket. I wear it for work outside, get dirty brush off and head to meetings. I can also see wearing it out hiking and camping as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plus Size Jacket I love this coat! The color is terrific and it's very stylish. I carry a lot of weight in my hips and I can zip it with no problem. The only thing I don't like is that the sleeves are about 1 inch too long. I wish the sleeves wouldn't get longer with larger sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! I love the sleek look of this jacket. I feel like it runs true to size. I loved mine so much, my Mom just had to get one as well. Also, I would like to THANK Columbia for making actual PLUS size clothing! Anytime I'm looking for a nice jacket I turn to Columbia. I've purchased 3 jackets in the last 2 weeks ALL Columbia. Because NO ONE else bothers to make cute ones in plus sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for everyday use I absolutely love this jacket. Originally I was searching for something sturdy that I can use outside but I love the feel and look of this jacket for work. It is something I can wear at work without looking too "sporty." The only gripe I have on it is that the range of motion on the shoulders is limited that I have a hard time when I try to shrug out of it while sitting. Otherwise, it is great against wind and thick enough to accommodate 20-30 degree weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft Great Feeling Jacket This jacket runs a little small but feels wonderful. I am usually cold and wear this jacket often. I love the zippered pockets, hold a phone and keys with no problem and the fabric inside is soft and warm. The drawstring is handy at the bottom of the jacket.
Date published: 2017-01-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one issue I love this jacket, except for one thing. The lining is a material that doesn't slip easily over fleece or flannel. It runs a bit small (for my hips) so got the next size up. LOVE the pink color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket, light weight yet very warm! I have been looking for a columbia jacket for a while now, my husband owns a few of them so of course I wanted one too. I love the soft shell columbia jackets because they're light yet keep you warm. I would recommend this jacket to everyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleeves too long Sleeves were too long. Had to have them tailored. Runs a little small in the hips which I've found to be true for most Columbia products. Would have been great to have a two way zipper.
Date published: 2016-11-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket Nice light jacket, perfect for fall, with a long sleeve shirt worn underneath. The sleeves seem to be long for size of jacket, so I shortened them. The only improvement would be a two way zipper and a hood.
