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 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 Nice lightweight jacket Love the lilac color. Runs a bit large but OK with it for layering. It is a lightweight jacket. Would buy again. Would have loved an inside pocket for cell phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits perfectly I didn't realize I was getting a rain jacket. My fault. However, when I tried it on, it fit so well i decided to keep it. It will be perfect for wet weather. Light weight, beautiful color, sage green, great fit and room for something underneath if needed. Seems well made and sturdy. Haven't worn it yet but sure will get it out for rain or snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I bought this jacket for my grandmother as I have one similar to it. We went a size up so that she could layer up. Should work perfectly for what she needs this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great car jacket I have several fleece jackets and a couple of heavy duty winter jackets but I was looking for something a little lighter that I could wear in the car. Living in Colorado during the cooler months means you are getting out of a warm house, into a warm car, into warm buildings, in the meantime you are in the freezing cold. This jacket is light enough to leave on in the car without impeding movement, light enough to wear inside and warm enough to keep the chilly winds off. Perfect for being out and about, especially during the fall and spring months. I purchased the Dusty Green color and it is beautiful. It will go with most other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket I am very pleased with the jacket even while it runs a little small. It is definitely made well for what it is intended for. I really love the color.
Date published: 2017-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional while looking great! I loved this coat and the way it fit so much I purchased it in another color. It is thin enough that you can wear it in spring/fall and enjoy the rain/wind protection without getting too warm. You also cannot beat the sale price. Completely worth every penny and then some. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket Jacket is as advertised. Brought this jacket on my Alaska cruise. Kept me warm during the chilly early mornings & nights on the cruise, didn't need my sweater. The jacket is waterproof, but wish it came with a hood so that I could cover my head also. Other than missing a hood, I love this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Have had this jacket a short time but love it thus far. Fit is good and especially like the length. I'm not a fan of purple and found nightshade to be mostly a bright navy with a touch of purple. The contracting color really sets it off. I've gotten many compliments on the jacket as well. I really wish it had a hood though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! I LOVE this jacket!! Love the Nightshade/plum color and it kept me warm when the weather was below 0!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue jacket This jacket was great value for money. I skied a number of days in it and found it very comfortable. I think it you skied on a day where it was raining, the water would eventually get through. All in all it's a great jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I work in a cold environment and my co-workers who had already invested in Colombia products, introduced me to the soft shell jackets. I absolutely love this product and it fits to perfection. The pockets are deep and secure enough to keep my loose items in and it also has a stylish professional look. I definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I debated on purchasing this jacket for a couple weeks, but I'm so glad I gave in. It's warm but lightweight & I love that it's waterproof. The sleeves are a tad long but it's not a big deal. Love everything about this jacket!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Consider alternatives This jacket has an awkward cut - long sleeves and distinct flare at bottom. Tried to return and the cost to ship back is 1/3 the jacket cost! Better to buy (and try on) in a store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, but Just a tad too snug. Exchanging for a 2X and I wear a size 16 jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, Great Fit! Very flattering fit for a plus size woman---has shape and not boxy. Nice medium weight, not flimsy/too light but not bulky either. I bought this for layering warmth while traveling, so wanted something packable and not bulky in the bag. This jacket will work just fine. Well constructed too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women’s Kruser Ridge™ Softshell Jacket - Plus Size OMG, this jacket is beautiful and fits just right, no room but I love it and it is soooo soft. I am so delighted seeing as how it is soo difficult to find name brand products in plus size without paying a lot. I love the jacket and have received many compliments on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and style I love this jacket. The fit and style are great. The fabric was thicker than I expected. It seems to be a crossover between a light winter coat and heavier spring/fall coat.
Date published: 2017-02-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hooded I absolutely love this coat, it was not was I was expecting but it's better. The only improvement is it need a hood. It seems all ur larger jackets (ie 1x and larger) have no hood. We like to keep dry too. Other then that the jacket is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime jacket I own this in black and there was a sale for the midnight one so I purchased it too. These are extremely comfortable and move with your body. I have worn this in spring, fall, and winter. Perfect for all year around. I usually wear a 2x but got a 3x incase I wanted to layer clothing.
Date published: 2017-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT COAT FOR THE PRICE! Love this coat! Perfect weight for a lighter coat, but still warm. The outside provides a great barrier to the elements. I am sure this will be a continual favorite into spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these jackets! I have now purchased 5 of these fantastic jackets. The cut, style, and fit is very flattering and classic. I have ordered the 2X size to wear over layers, so that I have room for a fleece or sweater. I also ordered 3 of the 1X size to wear with just a shirt, and they look very fitted, sleek, and stylish. These jackets are well constructed and nice colors. The fabric seems to be quite durable, and the darker colors can even be worn in the woods, or in the horse barn. They are also classic enough to dress up and wear with a nice pair of slacks or skirt. Just LOVE these. My recommendation is to order true to your size for regular wear as a light jacket, and order up one size in order to layer underneath in cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! I love it! It is the most comfort jacket I have ever owned. It does run a tiny bit small nothing you need to worry about though. Definitely will buy a couple just to keep different colors in my wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is what I expected from a Columbia product I needed a new work coat that was light weight but warm and water resistant. This product is both of those things. I like to where layers at work cause I go between working outdoors and indoors. This coat fits true to size and has plenty of room to layer clothes under it. Plenty of room for movement. I've been wearing Columbia coats for the past 16 years and have never been disappointed and this coat dosent disappoint either!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great color and quality Every day I wear this I get at least one compliment on the color, it is the perfect bright pink. The jacket is great quality and does well in the rain and wind although it is more of a fall coat than winter. I wish it had a hood which is my only complaint. I am normally a 1X and I ordered a 2X because I don't like jackets to be too tight and I wanted to be able to wear sweaters under the coat. If you're like me and like a little more room rather than totally form fitting I would order a size up so you can wear a sweater and still move easily, it still has some form fitting so even with some extra room it still flatters your figure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Great jacket for everything other than sub zero cold. The shell is water and wind resistant, lightweight for its function. Bought a size up to go over sweatshirts and mid weight layers. I train horses and dogs in all kinds of weather, I'm sure this will be a staple in my wardrobe late fall, winter, and spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite jacket I don't think I can rave enough about how much I enjoy this jacket. The outer shell has repelled a rainstorm and in the inner lining has kept me warm. The lining is a plush, soft texture, but not really a typical fleece. My body temperature runs very hot, so during most of the year, even rain, snow and cold I have to be very careful how warm my outer wear keeps me. The Kruser Ridge has fulfilled every expectation, even in 68 degree stormy weather, when most people are very cold, I may need a very light jacket and still get to warm as I'm outdoors. But, as I have gone hiking or walking along the foothill trails, I find the jacket to be the perfect weight. I am a fairly large woman, and wear 3x typically. I was very worried when I read that the jacket runs small, but I took a chance, and I wasn't disappointed. I have very broad shoulders, but my arms tend to run smaller than most my size. I also do not have a large bust size, so I found the arms and shoulders to be very roomy. I don't feel restricted at all. I sometimes have trouble with the hip and lower stomach area being too small on clothing, even when across the bust is too big, but this is large enough to zip up and room left over, but still with a flattering women's cut. The set in sleeves are a much more flattering look than a raglan sleeve, and hide the broadness of my shoulders. I think the one drawback is no hood for those rainy days. But, I enjoy the jacket so much, I don't think I'll miss it. I love this jacket so much I bought two different colors and may go back for another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect light coat This is a great buy, I like to travel in the fall so this is perfect for that weather. After reading the reviews I decided to go 2 sizes over and don't regret it. It's loose fitting so I can easily pile sweaters on. I have a strong bust so I bought one that was 3 inches above ( and it's not that big).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My new go to jacket This jacket is great for braving many elements - wind, rain, late summer mountain chill at night. Not sure how it will do in the Colorado winter but I'm sure with a few layers it'll work just fine. I wish it had thumb holes and a hood but overall fantastic jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I bought this jacket to take to Alaska this summer. I have been wearing it and just love it. It was very windy here one day and it blocked the wind great. I am sure it will be perfect for Alaska this July.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful jacket! I love this jacket! It fits perfectly! I am a size 16 and am very busty, but the 1XL fit great. The Mineshaft color is gorgeous in person. It's the perfect length, covering the butt just barely. I also have long arms, so I was worried, but the sleeves are actually a little bit long, which is good for a jacket like this. I also went to the pond today and the dog got her muddy footprints all over me, but it came right off! I wish I needed another, I would buy more, haha.
Date published: 2016-01-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect item! I absolutely love this coat! The quill color is just perfect. The only thing I would change, would be to give it a hood. I love that the upper side of the sleeves is longer to cover your hand. And, that it is longer in the back to cover your rear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent jacket Liked the feel of this jacket, not to stiff like some soft shells. Ended up returning it because it was a little to big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Alaskan Fall I ordered this especially for a trip to Alaska in October and it was perfect. The fit was great, I could wear layers underneath with no problem, and it was water resistant which helped with the rain. I love this jacket and look forward to wearing it for a Georgia winter too!
