Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cint While I didn't expect jacket to be as lightweight, I liked that it is. The material quality is great, and jacket has a stylish look to it. It's going to be a good addition to a cute summer outfit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase A good product to have as basic/essential. I chose the Light Blue color and it's beautiful. It folds very small, so you can fit easily in your bag. Only problem I had was that my measurements were between 1X and 2X, so to make sure it would fit I picked the 2X. It ended up being a little larger than expected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the product was not what I expected product was made of a cheap plastic material. Not what I expected from Columbia. Return it for my money back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light windbreaker This windbreaker is nice for a cool windy day at the beach. I wouldn't recommend wearing it hiking or on a warm day. The nylon doesn't breath and it makes you sweat. Very wet inside the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This jacket is a great purchase. True to size, and the day after I received it, there was a huge rainstorm so I was able to really put it to the test. The jacket repelled water, the hood of the jacket is big enough to cover my entire head! I definitely recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a windbreaker I misunderstood this was not a lined jacket. It's a windbreaker but I needed a windbreaker so I'm happy, I just wish it came lined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favourite jacket Very pleased with this jacket. True to size. Great for rainy days! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Size chart sucks but good jacket As a reference I have a 52 inch chest and hip measurement. Based on all my measurements, their sizing chart told me I would be a 3X (usually I'm an XL in clothing). Tracking details did not update properly either, was told it would arrive one day and then it suddenly updated a day after it was scheduled to arrive saying it would be almost another week. When I got the jacket I put it on and it is huge! I have 6 inches of room around my chest and almost a foot of extra fabric around my midsection. Do not trust their sizing chart!!! Jacket is good quality and I like it otherwise. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packable jacket for travel. This is nice looking, lightweight, and since it packs into its own pocket, functions as a travel pillow too. I hope this jacket comes back into production, as I now wish I would have purchased a spare. I ordered it one size up and it works fine with layers beneath.
