Women’s Switchback™ III Jacket - Plus Size is rated out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Emmers12 from Great Rain Jacket This jacket is very nice and will be used for rainy days. I needed a jacket that was able to keep out rain and it’s worked so far. My only issue is that I am not able to zip it up, my normal size for jackets is 3x , so that is what I ordered. However, it is too small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by singeropera from Great jacket! I purchased this at the last minute for a trip. It packs very well (doesn't take up a lot of room), and is very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlaCarole from Beautiful Color, Good Fit, High Quality Construction My jacket arrived on time and in perfect condition. It fit just right -- Every aspect of the jacket was good quality. It was not mesh lined, as I had expected, but it is just fine for me. I wanted a bright color to stand out in rainy weather, and the Camellia Red is perfection. I like the pockets and the zipper -- everything works as it should. Thanks, Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hconner from Columbia Jackets a Christmas Win. I ordered these jackets for Christmas for my teachers. I ended up pressing vinyl monograms onto them. I ordered sizes ranging from M-2XL and they all fit the people they were intended for. True to size for sure. They are sturdy material and perfect for the South where you don’t always need a “cold layer” but just a rain layer. Adding a fleece underneath makes them perfect for Winter too. Great Jacket, Great fit, Great Price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennifah99 from Great all year jacket Bought this jacket to keep in my car as an all year jacket to have. Living in South FL you never know what the weather will be, so I decided to buy this jacket to keep in car. Was at son's football game and of course out of nowhere the rain came and this was in my bag. Kept me nice and dry!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Crystal23a from Mesh lining I love this jacket. But want to clarify in the description it says mesh lining. The only mesh lining is located on the inner pockets. The jacket is not actually lined. I love all my Columbia products!
