Women's Sweet As™ Softshell Hoodie is rated out of 5 by 53.
Rated 2 out of 5 by KM1234 from Please go back to the super stretchy side panels I bought one of these a few years ago, when it had side panels made out of very stretchy material. This meant it fit all of my curves perfectly, which made very comfortable and super flattering!! I love it so much that I recently bought another one in a different colour, however they’ve change the side panel material to a much more rigid fabric, which means it now does none of things, and is just a very standard jacket. Columbia - please go back to making the version with super stretchy side panels, I’ll buy 3 of them!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shopbot from Very thin than expected This jacket is very thin but the over quality is fairly good. It is true to size and is not boxy like my other Columbia jackets. I wish it was a velcro closure at the wrist and not elastic closure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sciencegeek from Could be perfect First the bad news. As others note, this runs small, not just slightly, but more than one full size small. I normally wear a small in Columbia products, rarely a medium. I needed a large in this, and it still fits trim. Well, and with good mobility, but trim. For reference, I'm 5'7" and 130 lbs. Minus half a star for sizing so different from other Columbia products, and from their sizing/measurement guide. Another issue is that the hood is huge. It almost completely covers my eyes, and there is no way to adjust it. I will have to add a piece of velcro, or create a dart seam to get it out of my eyes. Minus another half star. The good news. Everything else is excellent. Fabric, stitching, styling, cut of garment, shape - all high quality, functional and flattering. The pocket zippers are low profile to not add bulk under a pack belt. The sleeves allow freedom of movement even over a light and midweight layer combination. It packs/rolls up into a fairly small bundle and weighs less than some other softshells I tried. These were critical for my intended use of backpacking and trail running. The dark cyan is a lovely color - bright and rich, but not over the top intense that looks inappropriate in the wilderness. If not for the first two items mentioned, this would have been an easy 5 star jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarah2 from Nice light jacket I have been looking for a soft shell jacket for a few months....wanting something for the in between weather and a trip to the Oregon coast later this summer . This jacket is thinner than I was hoping, but it fits my needs. It does run a tad bit small. But it has a nice fitted shape. We have had rainy weather this last week and it has kept me dry. The hood is a nice addition. I like that it also has inner pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sherl from Perfect jacket for late spring and early fall! I've been looking for a weight light jacket for both water and wind resistant. There are different brands jackets on the market meet my criteria. But this Columbia one fits me perfectly. Love it so much! I usually wear "small". But this one runs a bit small so I bought two "Medium" ones. Strongly recommend it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by FOCOgirl from Awesome Jacket! I love everything about this jacket! It's super light weight, 100% waterproof, and really comfortable. I ordered my normal size, small, and it fits smaller that most things I've ordered in that size from Columbia. I like tighter fitting jackets so I think it's perfect but if you want layers under it then you might want a size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cascadepoppy from Versatile Jacket in great colors I have two of these jackets from last season and got a third this year because I was wearing the heck out of them. They are my absolute go to when I need a light jacket. They stretch, they are breathable and they are super comfortable. I hike, walk the neighborhood, and wear it to work over skirts and dresses. It is slightly water repellent so I can stay dry even in light rain. I wear the bright pink when I hike, so I am visible and black for everyday. I got the navy blue with the teal piping this year. It is more of a sporty look, which is fun, but I have to say, the cut is a bit tighter through the hips than last years. I have noticed this with a few other Columbia products that I have re-purchased. So, my only recommendation is you might need to order a size up or be comfortable with a snug fit. Otherwise, I hope Columbia continues to offer this jacket every year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mamatamas from Really enjoying my new jacket I needed a lightweight jacket for every day use and have been looking for something that was wind resistant, water resistant, and had a hood. I live on Hawaii, so lightweight was key. This jacket fit the bill. I was a little nervous about the quality because of the other reviews about the zippers. Those were the first things that I tried out. Initially I did have trouble with them and felt like the quality wasn't great. But, as I've worn the jacket, I feel like the zippers are less sticky, so open and close a lot smoother and easier. None of them have failed yet, but I've only been using the jacket for about a month now. Time will tell. I had another jacket from a different brand, which lasted years and I can tell the difference between the quality of the zippers. I have used the jacket on windy and rainy days and thus far its held up quite well on those fronts. I do love the jacket and would have given my review a 5 star except I don't like the texture of the jacket on the inside. It's kind of rough on my skin. Nothing that will scratch me, but I was really hoping for a softer feel as I usually wear the jacket with short sleeved shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomThings from Perfect Spring/Fall Coat!! I was looking for a coat just for the spring and fall time also one that would resist the rain. It is absolutely perfect for that. It fits nice and snug around the tummy area and it has enough room in the sleeves to wear a sweater underneath if it was really chilly. I love it! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maman2three from Exactly what I was looking for Very happy with my new hoodie / jacket. It's nice and light and actually fits my athletic shape well (I bought a small and my measurements are 35-25-35). Usually if something fits around my shoulders and chest, it is way too big around the waist. This has a nice tapered fit. I was surprised at how resistant to water it is; have worn it out in the rain a few times now and have stayed dry as the water just rolls right off. Only issue I've had is that the zipper is a little sticky. Wish this came in more colours!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ReidsMom from Very thin I was hoping use this as a fall/spring jacket, but it was much too thin. It has no lining and would not work for what I wanted. It was also shorter on the torso than I liked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Megan04021991 from Just a tad small I have a regular Columbia jacket without a hood and it's a large so I thought ordering a large on this one would be ok. It was pretty small so I had to get an XL. Otherwise it would've been a 5 star item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Estere from Not what I expected This jacket looks good, but had a texture I did not expect as well as it was not soft at all. I am returning it because it was not what I wanted but if you need a rain jacket for warmer days this could be the right fit for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CWK1 from Love it I originally bought one of these from the outlet store because I needed some hiking wear, it was so inexpensive and I loved the colors. I found myself wearing it as my go-to for all casual outings when I needed a light jacket or windbreaker. It's light enough to carry in a backpack or even around your waist, but it is also quite warm, especially if it's windy. I have quite a few friends who have these, too, and wear them all around. The only problem I've had with my original one is that the cuff seam came loose within a few wearings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TigerFan from Great All Around Jacket Bought this for 10 day trip to Europe. Very well made, looked great, seems indestructible and, believe me, I put it to the test! It does fit a little on the small side. Since it did not rain on me, I can't comment on the water resistant capabilities. Great hood that stayed on in wind gusts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jewells from A family favorite This is the fourth one of these jackets I have purchased. The first was for my youngest daughter, then two more for me and my oldest daughter. We wanted one after borrowing the first. After daily wear for two years, my daughter outgrew hers and we are replacing it. Comfy, lightweight, nice cut that flatters. The colors keep changing and some are a little bright for me, but that is my only negative feedback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PlaneGirl from AWESOME lightweight jacket! I find this jacket to be very practical it sheds rain very well and is light weight enough I'm willing to stuff it in a bag or small pack just in case I find I need a little jacketness. It was very comfortable in high humidity conditions of Wisconsin while being just the correct amount of jacket. The fabric breaths so I did not get extra sweaty nor dose it stick to your skin. The fabric is not noisy and it has a nice amount of stretch making it very comfortable to wear while riding bikes. It SO nice I bought a second one "Hot Coral" :) In our household I'm known as a "coat aholic" so if I like it, it must be a great jacket. Thanks You Columbia for the awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by beckster from Perfect I Wanted a white lightweight rain coat with a hoodie for the beach. Read a lot of the reviews about it being small, but I ordered the size I normally would, a medium, and it fits perfect. I am tall, about 5'9" and the length of the coat and sleeves is perfect. Love the way it fits, not too tight and not too loose. It's always kind of scary to order online without being able to see, feel and try on, but I love this coat and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cross from Tight fit This is a well-made good looking jacket. However, the fit is tight. I'm sure it is made to fit like this since it is made of a stretch material; I had no difficulty zipping it up. The jacket fits over a teeshirt, but it would not fit over a sweater. I am impressed with the pockets as they easily unzip to a warm material that will fit my cold hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OutsidePDX from Spring Time! I love this jacket. I got a size L with the intention of being able to layer underneath for chilly morning bike rides. The jacket is still flattering though, even without those extra layers (thanks, waist cinch) ! The water resistance is fantastic too, as the rain can sneak up on you quickly here in PDX.
