Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too short This seems to run really short, I was so surprised at both the sleeves and the body length. Love the color, but I had to return it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet As Softshell Hoodie I have a windbreaker, a raincoat, multiple sweatshirts and a jeans jacket that have ALL been replaced by this jacket. It is the perfect weight for summers, esp mornings & evenings, is the ONLY jacket I own where the sleeves are not 3" too long ( I am 5'1") and I LOVE the shape of the hood. It sits right where I put it, not covering my eyes or sliding off. Very figure flattering, made well, LOVE the color. The fact it was a $90 jacket for $45 sure didn't hurt! THANK YOU for the awesome sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works in Iceland! Just got back from a week in Iceland and this jacket as my outer layer kept me warm. It’s excellent at breaking the wind and is completely water-proof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket a must have for a woman on the go! I am so excited about this jacket...it is big enough to wear a sweatshirt under it. It is a stylish jacket. I'm never disappointed in Columbia clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colombia jacket This jacket is exactly what I have been looking for. Light weight yet plenty of protection from wind and rain. The color is perfect too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expectations Achieved This jacket is just what I was looking for: it is lightweight, will pack easiy, wicks away moisture and repels rain. I am taking it on a european trek this summer but have been wearing it stateside to make sure it fulfills my expectations. It exceeds them. The sleeves are long and the jacket has enough room for a thin layer underneath. It weighs next to nothing and will pack into a sandwich bag. Most importantly is that it is windproof and repels rain so if unexpected weather occurs you are covered—literally. Another excellent and dependable jacket from Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I bought a 3x in dark cyan. It was more blue than I realized. It was a bit tight zipping it up but it was fine once I had it zipped up all the way. It does a great job of keeping me warm and helps me stay dry!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I ordered in 3x and it fits a bit snug in comparison to other Columbia coats in the same size. Also the length is a bit short. However, the quality seems great and the material is nice and light for spring. I have the red one and I love the colour! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and functional A great, lightweight jacket. So comfortable I hardly know it's there. Wind and rain resistant without the stiffness of a raincoat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like cats I like this jacket, but it does run a bit small. The sleeves are a bit too long too. The overall quality is very good. I haven't used it yet. I bought it for my upcoming trip to Ireland.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight I like this jacket. It is a little short in the body, would like it to be a bit longer. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality Order a size up if you want to wear a thick layer underneath. The cut and line are plain in an attractive way and practical. The dark cyan is a great colour. I like the hood and the high performance features of the fabric. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket This is the best jacket ever!! I wore this everywhere. I just recently lost this jacket and I am lost without it!! I am waiting to see if they bring it back. I will buy 2 if they do. I wore this from fall right into winter. It was the jacket you could even wear in the warmer months for rainy days and not get hot due to the omni material. You can even keep it on when inside and not get overheated. Please bring this jacket back!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket I love not only the color but the looks and the perfect fit. The material seems to be very durable. I really like it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the shoulder cut Nice soft fit. Love the cut on shoulders, I have a fuller body, so sometimes the shoulders are too big. The raglan shoulder cut is the perfect answer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel Love the lightweight breathable material. Pretty colour. Folds down small. Great as a travel jacket but also would work well layered under a more waterproof shell. Love the lining - doesn't feel sticky on bare arms when wearing a tshirt under it like most jackets. Good pockets with soft lining is a nice touch too. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it but...... This jacket is lovely but a tad too short for me even at 5'3". That wasn't a huge issue for me. I ordered the red camellia and it's a stunning colour but I knew it would stay in the closet because I typically wear more earthy colours and this was a bright. It was true to size with stretch. Sleeves were long but they can be rolled and it still looked cute. I would recommend and probably would have kept it if the black or blue had been available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Light I wanted a light raincoat for spring/summer that would pack up nicely when traveling and I think this is it! I purchased the red camellia and it's a really pretty color. It fits true to size and I look forward to wearing it for long travel days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this Jacket! I Love this jacket ~ the first one I received was from my employer, first for the branding with our company logo and second because we sell homes and are in and out all the time. This jacket fits nicely without looking like a box. I wear the plus size 1X and it still looks like a fitted jacket. I love the zippered pockets ~ deep enough for you phone and your hand with the added bonus that they are warm. There are also two inside pockets (not zippered but handy for papers and such if you don't want to get them wet. The jacket is just the right weight to help with wind and water but does not overheat you. I just purchased 2 more jackets just in case they are discontinued. Soft jacket and not a lot of noise ~ I wear two hearing aids so this is a big factor for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Happy With the Hood I loved this jacket, but was unhappy with the way the hood fit. It seemed tight around my face. I have an older Columbia windbreaker and the hood forms a brim, which keeps the rain off your face.
Date published: 2016-09-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain jacket This jacket is light weight and rain proof. I love the feel and it fits just right. It is very comfortable and easy care. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light jacket for spring or fall.
Date published: 2016-09-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome rain jacket! This is a great rain jacket. It keeps you dry and the hood doesn't fall off when the wind hits. I'm hoping to be able to layer it with a sweater to make it a part of my fall wardrobe.
Date published: 2016-09-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from not for me If you like raglan sleeves and a thin poly-type hoodie you will like this. It just wasn't for me. Runs a little wide - a little large.
Date published: 2016-08-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight hoodie I was impressed that this product was delivered on the day I was told it would be here. The jacket fits true to size and is comfortable. The color is true to what I saw on my computer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd measurements, make sure to get proper fit I ordered this item from a 3x to a 2x and then gave up and returned it. It feels too baggy in the chest and stomach area even with sizing down, too shirt at the waist, and too long in the arms. I'm 5 ft 4 inches and I'm not as big as my weight makes me sound but I am large chested. I really liked the purple color but it just didn't fit right. The material feels so nice too. Try to down size and go from there

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size Issues I ordered this soft shell jacket bigger than I normally wear due to user comments on the size being so small ! I had to return and reorder my usual size and find it generous and true to size in a 1X. Maybe Columbia has fixed the size issues. Beautiful colour in the Bright Geranium...a mix of pink and peach. Wish there were more sizes to try on in the outlet stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Product but not what I was hoping for. Don't get me wrong. This jacket is great! Built with quality materials. Made for the wear and tear. I read other reviews saying it ran small and to order a size up. I even measured myself to make sure I ordered the correct size. I was swimming in this jacket. But what I was truly hoping for was a softshell jacket made with a neoprene type material. This felt like a very soft and brushed windbreaker. It would be perfect for a slightly chilly or rainy spring/ fall day as it is light weight and water resistant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket I bought the turquoise jacket and it is very pretty. Made out of great quality. I bought the jacket according to my measurements and it fit nicely. It's pricy but I waited for it to go on sale. It's great for layering, it's very light weight and is perfect for a wind breaker and a light rain jacket. Perfect for hiking on a spring day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jacket Very Nice I am very glad I purchased this jacket. I haven't worn that much but I would recommend it. One thing, I believe it is a bit expensive for a spring jacket.
Date published: 2016-04-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Returned too small Unfortunately I bought the wrong size and returned it and the color I wanted is not available in my size. If it became available in my size I would diffiently reorder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable After reading reviews I'm glad I sized up. I'm normally a 2X. Bought the 3X and it is so comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect light Jacket This jacket is light - I wear during moderate activity and I'm never too hot or too cold. Though it doesn't look like it, the material does not absorb rain and I stay nice and dry. My favorite feature is the elastic on the sleeves and hood. The sleeves don't hang past my wrist and the elastic isn't so tight that it's annoying. Seattle has a lot of wind along with the rain, and because of the elastic on my hood, when this is zipped all the way up the hood never blows off of my head. Finally, I think it is a clean, simple, sharp looking coat and it fits very well, true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Hoodie i have 2 of these jackets because i love them so. It is perfect for spring and fall, good for light mist. (do not recommend for heavy winter rain). It is Durable, great for riding my bike, good flexibility and appreciate the pockets that zip. one of the best coats i own. Fits comfortably and has a nice style, not boxy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from run small I'm a 2x normally but I bought a 3x after reading reviews. A 3x fits perfect. I'm 5'4" and weigh 230 pre. There's enormous that room to wear a sweater or sweatshirt. It's not overly baggy.
Date published: 2015-08-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No weather worries I purchased this jacket for work. I am outside a lot and want to be prepared for the quick climate changes that occur in our area. It has been perfect for me. The jacket keeps me cool when the sun is shining and warm enough when it starts raining. The hood helps keep me dry and I never get cold. I have received a lot of compliments about it as well. The sleeves are a bit long but otherwise it fits great since I often wear bulky clothes. Great price too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I love this jacket! I wear it when I bike and hike. It blocks the wind and the rain and it's very comfortable to wear. The pink is definitely pink! It's light weight enough that I just roll it up and shove it in my bag so that I have it if I need it. I wish I had one in every color!
Date published: 2015-07-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in between jacket I have not run the jacket through a full contingent of weather, so this review is limited to my July 5th - foggy damp, then cold wind and finally sunny, warm and windy day at the San Francisco Casting ponds. (just off Ocean Beach) The jacket was spot on with a light t-shirt underneath. I normally get a 1 x but ordered the 2x to maker sure I had room for Nano Puff insulator or my waders. Glad I did the 1X would have been more of a "fitted" fit. The hood fits nice over a ball cap. Without a cinch strap I'm not sure it would work well without a hat. I just might get another color...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lightweight Jacket I will not be able to fully test this jacket out until I leave for my vacation in a couple of months but it fit great; the jacket is lightweight, perfect for layering; and it is made very well. I can't wait to give it a spin!!
Date published: 2015-06-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This jacket is perfection! I first ordered the black and have worn it to death. The fit is comfortable. I am a 16-18 and the 1x is perfect. The XL is too tight. It is soft yet it wicks away moisture beautifully. The collar will stand up or lay flat. It's cool enough to wear in CO summers with a tank underneath. It's sporty looking but not crunchy and noisy. The pink is so bright and gorgeous! I have ordered three other colors and plan to wear them regularly. This one is a home run!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft shell Jacket This jacket is amazing, great features
Date published: 2015-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! This jacket fits perfectly with a little extra space for movement, which I find hard sometimes because of my chest size. It bundles up small and barely takes up room in my daypack~!
