Bought for my teenage daughter for marching band practice and for future hiking trips. Nice fit and really great value in terms of features. Absolutely love the color combos.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is beautiful, well-made, great fabric and features. But it runs small, tight through the middle and the arms fit like gloves so impossible to wear over anything but a very thin base layer. I'm an XL but have thin arms and this just does not work. Returning it for a jacket designed to fit a real person, not a mannequin.
I do not recommend this product.

This is a top quality rain coat - very stylish and functional. I bought the ebony blue and couldn't be happier. All the extra pockets are wonderful. Highly recommend!

I love the colors available. Great look, but overall the jacket is cut too slim. I am average person 5'6" about 145 lbs. and bought a large to accommodate clothing underneath. The jacket was too tight especially in the arms. I ordered an XL and it was STILL cut too tight. So, great looking but fit not quite right. I returned both jackets.
I do not recommend this product.

I'm an avid outdoorswoman and was seeking the perfect all around shell for both everyday use and for distance trail running in Pacific Northwest conditions. This jacket absolutely fits the bill. It's lightweight, breathable, great fit, great colors, and kept me dry, even when I was sweating from a 6 mile run. I did not overheat, but I was not cold, even with only one cotton layer on underneath in 50 degree balmy weather. The pit zips are ideal, and I love the wrist velcro. The sleeves and waist are both long enough that I don't feel like a midget in a little coat (I'm tall with broad shoulders, so hard to find jackets long enough on the arms and the torso), and the zippers were easy to use. Well designed pockets, waterproof zippers, good stuff.
The only thing I might comment on is the design of the hood-tightening bungee. Somehow I couldn't quite get it to pull snug enough around my head. It may just be that I'm learning how to work with Columbia's hood-bungee system, but as I was running and the wind/rain increased, I flipped up my hood and did have some trouble getting it snug enough. Perhaps I will get better at this with time.
Otherwise, love this jacket immensely and would recommend it to anyone!
I would recommend this product.

I really do like the jacket ... color is great, styling is slimming and boy does it keep this Seattlite dry ... but I don't like having to battle with the zipper every morning in order to get the jacket zipped up ...
I would recommend this product.

I wanted a durable shell for rain and wind that fit well and that is exactly what I got. I'm 5'6, 130 pounds and a small fit perfectly, nipping in at the waist with room to wear a fleece underneath if need be. There is nothing boxy about the jacket which I love. Also I ordered the green and grey jacket with pinkish purple details and the colors are true to the photo and are perfect if you want something a little different
I would recommend this product.

It fits a little larger in the upper arms but otherwise a nice trim fit.

I got this to use as a summer jacket. It is very light weight and tailored. Blocks wind and rain really well and does not feel "clammy".
It fits great over a t-shirt, but would be hard to put something heavier underneath.
I wanted bright colors, but was happy that the yellow is somewhat subdued, not flourescent!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this shell for my daughter and I thought it would have been a little thicker. Unfortunately by the time I saw how thin it was she had already took off the tags so I couldn't return it. This shell is not worth $190.00. This WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN...
