Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality jacket I am so pleased with this jacket. It washes/dries beautifully and shows no sign of wear or fading after multiple washings. I have the color black. Zippers are durable and no issues there either. I appreciate the drawstring to cinch in the jacket depending on what is worn beneath it. True to size all over including arm length proportionate to the body of the jacket. Would highly recommend this jacket to others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the lines! I love the fit of this jacket. The lines are slimming and provide a sleek, (not form-fitting), fit. I bought this to wear in air-conditioned/refrigerated/outdoor environments over a button-down shirt. I'm cold-natured so I found myself wanting an added thermal layer over time in the refrigerated environment. It was perfect for the cool, fall, outdoor and air-conditioned environments. I also love the pocket options!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable This jacket is super comfortable and versatile! Doesn’t get dirty easily. Warm enough for the fall days, not super thick. Arm lengths are a little long so I had to roll them up but it looks cute that way. Overall was what I was expecting! Happy with my purchase. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love the Softshell I love the jacket! The sleeves seemed to be a bit long and I altered them. Would love to have a petite line of coats. Always loved the quality of Columbia and great price for this item!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a jacket for fall that wasn't too thick so I could still wear a sweater under it without sweating. It is not too thin and true to size

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Black Softshell I’m 5’7”, 135 lbs and the medium fits well. As others have commented - the sleeves are very long even with long arms. I rolled them and dont mind. I especially like the drawcord on the waist. Its lightweight with fleece type lining on the inside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Kruser Ridge Softshell Perfect fall jacket, lightweight but warm and easy to move in. I ordered an extra small which was a good size for me, I'm about 5'3" and 115 lbs. My husband ordered the ascender softshell for men and his jacket has a breast zipper pocket and velcro adjustable wrist cuffs. I really wish the ladies jacket had these 2 features - I would give the jacket a 5 star rating if it included these 2 features that the men's jacket has. Overall, still a good purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the green color This is a great jacket and I wear it all the time. The o my issue I have are the arms are too long. I don't know who's arms are that long but I have to hold them about 4-5 inches back. That's a lot of arm length. But other than the arms everything g else fits great and looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket fits true to size - sleeves are a little long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this jacket! This jacket is amazing, it’s good for chillier days and also water proof. I definitely recommend
Date published: 2017-09-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sleeves too long This jacket is a nice moderate weight and fit fine except for the sleeves. I am 5' 8" and the sleeves extended almost to the tips of my fingers. I've never had this issue with other Columbia jackets. Poor design and Columbia is deducting $6 from my refund for return shipping. I will think twice before ordering again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Perfect light shell jacket. Retains warmth and breaks the wind. Love the trendy colors and great quality. Must have!
Date published: 2017-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy! This jacket is awesome! Really comfortable and stylish. I had to exchange for a size down because, in my opinion, it was large in the mid section. I'm 5'5 130lbs and my usual size is small but I sent it back for an XS and I think it's perfect!
Date published: 2017-08-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I assume When I get this the color was perfect, and the material was just what I was looking for, light spring/fall jacket, however I have not used it because I had ordered a large but needed a medium. This was on sale when I ordered and by the time I got back to place another order, the color in the medium was no longer available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional and functional all at once! Over the past few years, our firm has chosen to outfit our team members with Columbia jackets. We love supporting local companies in the NW and love the way the jackets make our team look. Professional and functional all at once!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight jacket that keeps you warm I originally bought the haute pink jacket and used it throughout my Europe trip. It kept me so warm on colder days and nights that I had to order another. In addition, the jacket is lightweight to carry around easily; perfect for traveling. I totally recommend! Jacket is perfect fit except the sleeves are too long. This was not a big deal for me as it kept my hands warm and did not have to carry gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat This is a very nice coat. The fit is great and the materials seem to be of quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for every day use Love this jacket! I've been searching for a nice, light, softshell jacket to wear when the temperature gets above 50° to protect from the wind. The inside is a fleece fabric, which keeps me nice and warm, but the outside soft shell is great for deflecting wind and keeping you dry from the rain. It fits very well, but I did notice that the arms felt larger in comparison to the rest of the fit. They're starting to flatten out a bit, but I would probably prefer the arms to be slimmer to go with the slimness of the rest of the jacket. The collar is super flexible, I prefer to keep the collar bent down rather than up, but it'll go either way you set it. All in all, it's a great jacket and I'm very satisfied. It's a little expensive, but it's great material that will last long term!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Jacket I read the reviews before I purchased this jacket and saw that the jacked ran a little big so I bought a small. I am 5'4'' and 130. The small is a little snug but the medium would of been too big. I do like how the jacket looks and it keeps me warm when outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket The quality and craftsmanship of this jacket is what I have come to expect from columbia. Better than my North Face jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleeves :( This jacket is really great. One of my absolute favorites but my only complaint is the sleeves are way too long. I have to fold them just to function normally. Other than that, I would 110% recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Needed a moderate jacket for a trip to Tennesse during the holidays. It fit great and kept me warm the whole time.
Date published: 2017-03-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jacket Good quality jacket, warm but the arms are so long makes me think it's a men's jacket I had to check twice to make sure it wasn't when I got it. Would have given 5 stars if the arms weren't so long. Also order at least 1 size smaller.
Date published: 2017-02-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Odd fit Sleeve length is very long and the body of the jacket is cut very small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I love this jacket. It's lightweight and functional for everyday use. It's very warm without being bulky. I would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a lightweight option.
Date published: 2016-12-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic This has a classic look and will be replacing the North Face jackets my daughter and I had, which have curved hems so seemed short in the front. In contrast, the Kruser has an even hem and falls mid-hip with just enough tailoring for a trim look yet plenty of room for layering. I am 5'4" 110# while my daughter is 5'8" and 135#. I purchased size small for us both. The arms are long, so great for her and I'll simply hem mine a bit.
Date published: 2016-12-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! This jacket is both lightweight and warm. This is a perfect jacket to use everyday during winter. The jacket also fit well and is slimming, not bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket but Runs Very Large I bought this jacket on a sale, and i love it! It's a great value for the dollar. It's high quality and keeps you very warm. It's not a sub zero type of jacket, but it does the trick in 40's and 50's degree weather. The only issue I have with it is that it runs very large. And by very large, I'm 5'7.5" and 150-155 lbs, ordered a Small, and I'm still swimming in it. Order one or two sizes down for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kruser ridge This jacket is amazing it is just like the North Face jacket and for a cheaper price, which is great! I do not like the fact that the sleeves are really long and have no adjustment straps but overall it is an amazing jacket that keeps You very warm.
Date published: 2016-12-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cut, runs large I read the other reviews and decided on a large, which is my normal size (5'10", 170lb). It's still roomy on me, which is nice for layering. And since it's not bulky, it still looks good. Nice tailoring at the waist. As others say, the sleeves really are quite long. My arms are long and many jackets are short on me. This one actually comes to the second joint on my thumb. Better than too short. All in all a good purchase.
Date published: 2016-12-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket Its a nice jacket but the arms are way too long. It would fit a long thin armed person good but me being a farm girl i have very muscular arms so its a bit binding.
Date published: 2016-12-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh It is okay. Nothing special. Definitly will be returning. Some columbia jackets fit well while others seem to have a poor fit. Im just not too fond of this one. I ordered an extra large and it just was not quite right. Material was disappointing too.
Date published: 2016-12-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket I own to date! I purchased this product because i am a ranch hand who spends many below 30 degree mornings fiddling with water troughs, and driving tractors and golf carts in cold winds. This jacket is in fact wind and water proof! water beads up and falls right off and I only wish the rest of my body could be this toasty when running around the ranch! Great for stock shows too when washing animals in early mornings! Way to go Columbia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite This jacket is al all around excellent example of the quality, fit, and comfort I associate with the brand. The fabric has great give and is very warm, and the cut is comfortable and super flattering. It is nice enough to wear to the office. A bonus - pet hair does not stick to it! Just a quick shake and it comes right off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best jackets ever! I bought this jacket 2 1/2 years ago during a Christmas sale. I bought a size medium in the color black. I wore that jacket out. It was great in chilly, rainy, or snowy weather. It could be dressed up or down. The fabric is great because it doesn't catch fuzz or dirt very easy and it is stretchy which makes for a comfortable wear. When it does get dirty, it washes amazingly well. I love the zipper front pockets. I stick my cell phone, money, credit card, whatever I don't want to fall out. I wore the old jacket so much that I broke the zipper (everything else still looked new). I sent it in to Columbia to have it fixed. I guess it was beyond fixing so they gave me a credit to buy a brand new one. So, customer service is amazing. I just received this new jacket and can't wait to start wearing it out! Seriously a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new jacket! I got this jacket for when it gets below 50 here. It's summer right now so I'm not sure how it will perform yet. The workmanship is great and the fit is perfect except the sleeves are a tad long. Still workable tho. I have a women's large 5'06/160.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stiff It looks and is made nicely. I wanted to love it but it would be too constricting For hiking. Plus sleeve length is too long.
Date published: 2016-07-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Love the look and feel of this jacket. Already owned a purple one, decided to get a black as a good lightweight jacket for wearing out to a casual dinner as it looks quite stylish
Date published: 2016-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket I had one just like this years ago and loved it. I wore it during the winter in NY. It's not a winter coat but it worked for me. I wanted a new one and got this one and it's exactly like my old one. So comfy and it's warm and fits and looks so good on. Sleeves are a tad long but still looks good. The jacket sits on my hips and I'm 5'7. I got a large because my breast were a little to big for the medium.
Date published: 2016-05-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Spring Jacket Awesome jacket! Have worn in rain and wind and does an excellent job of keeping you warm and dry! Love the shape it gives when wearing and the fact that it doesn't feel like a cheap jacket!
Date published: 2016-04-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice design, looks sharp I agree with the people who feel the sleeves are longish - I'm 5'10" and usually have a hard time finding sleeves long enough. These go about an inch past my wrist bones, which is great but may not meet others' needs. Love the cut and material of the jacket. It has a bit of a glitch with the zipper, but I'm keeping it for its other features.
Date published: 2016-03-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleeves are looooooong I really really like this jacket. Its thin and pliable and has a soft fleece lining. I am a taller woman at 5'8 and I really appreciate length in pants and sleeves.... with that being said, these sleeves are so long I dont think they would fit correctly on any size person. With my hands hanging straight down to my sides the sleeves cover all but the last link of my longest finger. I like the rest of the jacket so much, I cant decide to keep and hem the sleeves or just return for my money back... I ordered the Titans pass 3.0 titanium fleece at the same time in an xl and it fits like a glove.
Date published: 2016-03-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good spring weather coat My first Columbia jacket. I like the lightweight feel. It keeps the chill off when you are taking a walk with the dog in cool to mild weather. Long in the arm which I was not used to but am enjoying it now. And it keeps you dry in a light rain.
Date published: 2016-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Jacket I have this jacket in both Black and Sea Salt. They are my favorite jackets. In the winter I you will always catch me in this jacket. It can be worn casually or formally. This jacket is warm and comfortable. If you are looking for a nice jacket I would definitely recommend this one.
