Women’s Kruser Ridge™ Softshell Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 225.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softer then your average soft shell LOVE!!! This soft shell jacket, it’s not nearly as stiff as other soft shell jackets, it has a soft knit lining. I can literally wear this all day like a fleece it’s so comfy and not restricting like most soft shells that you feel like you need to take off once you get inside. I’m comfy lounging on the couch in this and comfy going outside on a windy and drizzly day. For sizing reference I am a large in most shirts and a large in this soft shell jacket (I wear medium in the Benton springs fleece jackets)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket The color is just as pictured. (olive) The shape is flattering. I usually wear between an M and L or 10/12. I ordered the L so I could wear layers underneath and it worked perfectly. It's really a thick shell. I figured if I ordered it on the big side I could make it more versatile by adding the layers myself as needed. I wore it in snow and it repelled moisture perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wind and Waterproof! I love the soft shell: it is truly wind and water proof as evidenced by me getting caught in the rain on the way back home. Besides it not having a good it’s kept me dry! It’s not super think but still retains enough warmth to feel comfortable in 50-60°F weather. It fit me well everywhere but the arms, they were a bit too long but I don’t mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large I am 5' 2", 150 lbs, and I got M (could have do with a S?). Upsides: comfortable and warm. Downsides: sleeves are too long and open (no velcro).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Irregular Extra Long Sleeves Loved the jacket and material BUT the sleeves were huge in the upper arm area ( I don’t have thin arms) and the length was 5 inches too long. Maybe men’s sleeves were put on this jacket. I returned it and disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's silky smooth It is a very good quality jacket. When you put it on, you immediately feel warm and it's wrinkle proof and stain proof and all the good stuff that Columbia is known for. The bad thing about it...the color. I ordered it on line and was expecting a nice blue color just like on the picture, but instead I got a navy blue, which does not go well with me. I did not return it because it's a hassle, but I really don't like the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket but runs really large Great jacket, loved the texture and color but the hands run really large.
Date published: 2018-04-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good jacket, poor fit The jacket does what it is supposed to do, it keeps me dry and warm. However, the fit is a bit boxy and the sleeves are a bit long and are open ended without a velcro strip to tighten them (like the men's jackets have). Those are the big detractors for me. Don't get me wrong, I do like this jacket and it does keep me warm and comfortable, but there are a few things that I would change if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Comfy Royal Blue The material is good. Runs just a tiny bit smaller from others, but otherwise does its job. Will get other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite softshell I love this blue! This jacket is warm... but not too warm to wear at work. It is figure flattering and washes extremely well. I’ve only let it air-dry, but after several washes the stitching remains intact and precise just like the day of purchase. Thank you, Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket! I really, really like this jacket. I love the color and the material. It's soft on the inside and smooth on the outside. As other reviews have said, it does run a little bit big. I usually buy medium jackets and sweaters, but even over sweaters, this jacket is a little big. I probably should've gotten a small. I have long arms and sometimes have jacket sleeves that are too short, but with this jacket, they're too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for both spring and winter First I bought the black one then bought red one because I loved it. It is a very nice jacket that you can wear under your winter coat or just by itself if you have nicer weather. I definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this jacket! I now have two of these jackets, my first was a navy blue Michigan jacket, so when I wanted a jacket for work it was a no brainer. I have extremely long arms, and often have to buy talls bc of that. This coat is plenty long enough to cover my arms appropriately, and I believe it’s bc of how they cut the end of the sleeve. It’s at a slight angle, so it’s a little longer on the top. The jacket is perfect for fall and spring in the Iowa wind. I thought the photo online appeared a little more red in color than the actual jacket is, it is a true rust color. I should add that I’m 5’-9”/172 lbs. bc I always find that helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Material - truly water resistant This jacket looks very nice. The deep rust color looks great. The inside is soft and the outside really is water and wind resistant. My only complaint are the sleeves are long on me. I do roll the cuff up at least one roll. I am 5'5" and I am about 160 lbs. The large size fits perfectly other than the long sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat Fits great. True to size. Using it for for winter days that are on the warmer side when you dont want to wear that heavy coat. I live in the NE weather allways changes. Coat repells water which is good for light snowy days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, not for short people This seems to be a nice jacket, but it is made for a much taller person than me. I'm 5' tall and normally wear small jackets. Other Columbia smalls fit great, but this jacket (size small) is huge. The arms are really long and wide.
