Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I love everything about this jacket I like the length and also the bit of elastic on back to make the fit perfect I am 5'10 (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like, not love... If this jacket were constructed from a slightly thicker material, it would be perfection! I will say it kept more of the rain off me than I thought it would being "water-resistant" according to the original hang tag. I love that it runs slightly large because I'm a die-hard layerer when it comes to clothes. The length is fantastic & the drawstring on the hood is great. It could benefit from a dual-direction zipper, but its not the end of the world that it doesn't have one. I absolutely love the fact that this jacket has stretch to it! I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this jacket...as long as you're not looking for something with lots of warmth because this wouldn't be the jacket for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Jacket Is Definitely Sweet I was expecting something with more weight which I equate to durability for some reason but don't let the lightweight fool you, it's sturdy, comfortable and breathable. I was surprised at how lightweight it was but it blocked the wind from chilling me during my sons football games. I live close to the Coastal area of NC and wind is big issue in our area during winter even if the temperatures are milder than the majority of the country. I also like that it's water resistant, the rain rolls off, we just had a lot of flooding from a tropical storm and this was my go to whenever I had to leave the house and it kept my upper body dry. My sons were in awe and asked for their own soft-shell jacket as well. It fits comfortably and looks great, the color isn't as dark as pictured and is lighter but I'm happy with the product nonetheless. I would love to have this in a dark green and black as well!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fitting and slimming Sould had listend to the other reviewers. The jacket run true to size. I am between a 2x and a 3x so I orderd a 3x. I had to send it back and re order the 2x. The jacket fits beautiful. Even gives you a slimming look. Feel very light on the skin. I only order jackets with hoods and I love the once from Columbia because I have a lot of hair and everything fits compftably in it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet As long softshell This WOMENS jacket is the best ever, it's the first women's jacket to fit me well. The sleeves are longer and torso too. I've always had to buy men's jackets to fit me. As a women's 2x plus size was short on me as we as the sleeves. I'm hoping u keep this longer size at all times as I'm just dying to buy myself another WOMENS jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jacket ever! This is one of the best jackets I have ever owned. I love it!. It is a great rain/wind jacket. Perfect for those chilly Indiana spring mornings. It runs a little big but it's great with a sweater or sweatshirt under it. This jacket does not provide warmth but it will keep you dry! Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice, the double zipper is a nice addition I really like the longer length of this fleece. It's soft and warm, runs a bit big but not big enough to order a smaller size. It is very suitable for layering. The double zipper allows me to zip it up without stretching the hemline.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket I love this jacket. I thought the fit all over was very good. It is a very light jacket and is not lined so it's perfect for spring/summer, but if you were going to wear a sweater under it you would probably have to go a size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fabric; dab funny on the fit FIT - I have quite a few Columbia things at this point, and generally wear a 22/2X. I was concerned about this jacket being snug (wanting to wear a base layer under it, since I knew it was thinner fabric), so I sized up to a 3X. The top portion is downright big on me; very - VERY - long sleeves, and boatloads of room around my torso (and I'm broad & busty, so that is something). However, it fits exactly how I want over the hips - not tight, not loose, but skimming. So - it will indeed work for wearing a heavy fleece underneath. Or for someone who isn't a very pear-shaped 3X. COLOR - the Black Heather is nearly charcoal in real life, & great looking. FABRIC - It is thinner - not the near neoprene weight of a lot of soft shells; it's a true shell thickness. It has nice stretch & is really easy to move around in. The pocket insides are a little fleecy, as are the first couple inches inside the cuffs. It isn't rustly or noisy, which is great. It will be great for travel, because it compresses down into nothing. PERFORMANCE - It blocks wind like a champ. I was in 40 degree temps, HEAVY cold wind, with just a t-shirt & cardigan underneath, and was completely warm enough. It shed the bit of rain I got caught in as well. WISHES - I wish anyone would make a hood that fit tighter to the head, and wouldn't be blown down in any bit of breeze. There has to be a way. I wish it had a double zipper - it's long, it really should have one. I wish the sleeves weren't so long - I did size up, & so that's part of it - but they're long even for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but not what i was expecting. The size is great and the fabric is good but I bought it thinking it could be a lightweight winter jacket. I am a fairly warm person in the cold but this would definitely not handle a Michigan winter. I would get it if you are looking for a long wind- breaker or for a light rain storm. I could see it working well for a summer camping morning. Overall a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for in-between seasons I really like this jacket, though I had hoped it would be a little thicker--I have another Columbia softshell that I really love, and it has a little more weight to it. This jacket is *very* lightweight, it's not going to give you any kind of warmth, it's really more of a windbreaker/light rain jacket. That said, with a lightweight fleece or wool top underneath, it's ideal for our Oregon spring when you still need a jacket but your winter jackets are too much. I usually wear a women's XL or 0X, so I was worried the 1X would be way too big. It's a little roomy for me in the upper body, so I imagine it's a pretty true 1X. Nice enough to wear over my professional work clothes, also works over yoga pants and jeans on weekends, gives me the flattering coverage I want. Now they just need to make the same thing in a slightly heavier softshell fabric. I'll keep buying them.
