Rated 3 out of 5 by from short in front The picture isn't a very accurate depiction of the jacket. It's VERY short in the front and long in the back. This is not a style I like. However the quality is great and I like the lightweight feel of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An appealing jacket to wear both in and out My building seems to be chilly, so I wore it all day at work. It was very comfortable and with many comment from co workers to take it off and give it to them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs a Little Large, But Great Jacket! I'm surprised at the review that suggested this jacket runs small. It definitely does not. I am 5'5" and 130 lbs. and have an athletic build. I wear smalls and this one fits more like a medium. There is definitely ample room for layering underneath, which is good because it's a pretty thin jacket. I also noticed that it's shaped a little differently than the photo seems to show. It looked more boxy than fitted when I wore it and the bottom of the jacket is higher in the front than the back -- something that isn't very noticeable in the photos. Otherwise, the material is nice; the sleeves are long, allowing you to take advantage of those thumb holes. Like I said, the jacket runs a bit big, so you can continue to wear it while layering beneath as the weather gets cooler. It's machine washable, which is super convenient and it looks nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect light jacket Bought myself and my 16 yro daughter both one and it truly is a perfect light jacket. My daughter fell in love with it as much as I did. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket! Out of all the raingear I have from Columbia, this is literally my favorite one! The material is so soft, everyting about this is amazing. Luv, luv, luv!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket I like the jacket, altho it was even thinner than I expected, but imagine it will be a great barrier. I was also surprised how short waisted it is in the front. From the pictures, I would have guessed it would rest below the belt line, but not so on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket I ordered the Charcoal Heather in Medium. Normally I order Large in Columbia sizes, but based on reviews I ordered the medium and I'm glad I did. This jacket seems to run bigger than other Columbia jackets I have, but the medium is perfect. The material is a little stretchy, which is nice, and there is an extra pocket within the pocket, nice for tucking something away. I'm not super fond of the way the front is shorter than the back, but it's not a deal breaker. I was looking for something heavier than my Gortex rain jacket for spring/fall in the PNW, this seems a little thinner than what I was really looking for, but with the proper layers I'm sure I'll get the weight needed. I can't attest to the rain/wind proofness yet since we're in the middle of a heat spell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my walks I wanted a light jacket that i could wear on my walks that doesnt make me overheat yet keeps me warm and it serves that purpose perfectly. I love that it has thumb holes too to keep the backs of my hands warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Shell Jacket This jacket works great for a lite windbreaker or as a layer for colder weather. I like that it is versatile that way it can be used for numerous weather conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had to order up but I love it I ordered medium (bust 36) but had to go to large. This is a perfect summer jacket for cool nights at the beach. It is a nice jacket and works well instead of wearing a summer sweater. There is no lining, so it is a summer item. I love it and am so happy I found this jacket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy I've bought numerous jackets from Columbia before and this is the first time I'm disappointed in my purchase. The Black Heather color is shown as charcoal black. Instead it's light grey with black linings. Also, I'm usually a L in the Active Fit so I got a L. This one is huge. I would probably fit in a S if I were to exchange. I was very excited for this jacket, but I'll be returning because of the size and the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love This jacket runs a little large and I really appreciated that feature. The fabric is nice and lightweight. I purchased the jacket in cirrus grey heather, and the Wayfarer Cotton scarf in coral bloom (Style# 1657211). Combine those two products with a white tee and you will have a great fashion outfit. I wear it work once a week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Looking Jacket The color Heather Black is actually a gray. I expected a charcoal black.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket, but not as pictured. This jacket is a great softshell, but the cirrus gray color that's pictured is not correct. There is no pink detailing on the actual jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pictures are misleading! I ordered this in black heather, but I was quite surprised when I received my jacket to see that it is gray with black trim. The picture clearly shows a black jacket. I actually like the gray and black. I was expecting the style to be different than the "Sweet As" jackets that I have, but the fabric is not the same. I normally wear a medium but the "Sweet As" has always run a little bit small so I purchase mine in large so I have a little extra room for heavier shirts. The large in the new style is more like extra large. I will be returning mine for a medium. I think the pictures of this jacket are very misleading.
