This is a beautiful jacket but, unfortunately, I had to return it because it was too small. It may be alright as long as you're wearing light clothing underneath, but I couldn't get it over my sweatshirt.
I would suggest ordering a size up
I do not recommend this product.

I often have trouble with the fit of Columbia jackets - I am pear shaped and if they fit at the top, they are too tight at the bottom. This jacket doesn't have that problem, yay! I am 5'8" average build, and the medium size fits well and has enough room for a layer underneath. What I really like about this softshell is that it is a little bit longer than others I have tried. I also love the ebony blue color. Very pretty deep, dark color.
I would recommend this product.

The jacket is great! Super warm and comfortable. It looks great and functions better.
One little issue... the sleeves are really long.

I really like this jacket!! I was looking for something not quite as heavy as a winter coat but something that could still handle the elements-basically a Fall and Spring jacket. And I think this jacket it great for those reasons. It's warm and water-proof, but fits well and doesn't look huge on me. It does run rather long, and I did order a size bigger so I could wear sweatshirts under it if I wanted, but it's still form-fitting and not baggy. I really like it, and have been very happy wearing it.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket fits perfect, I have long arms and the arm length is great for me. The jacket is longer in the waist for a great slimming effect. The ebony blue color is an awesome deep eggplant blue. I work outdoors and this is a good midweight jacket for cool mornings.
I would recommend this product.

I absolutely love this jacket. When I first received it in the mail I was a little worried because it was so long in the back, but actually the long cut is very flattering. The Spring season in Minnesota is ever-changing this year and this jacket has helped me get through snow, rain, and temperatures from 35 all the way up to 55.
I would recommend this product.

Bought this jacket to take on a trip to England, love the cut and longer length. This jacket has clean, classic lines and worked for times I wanted to look a little more dressed up, yet comfy. The color and fit were great, the waterproof feature also a plus.
I would recommend this product.

I love this coat! Yes, it's a little longer than I expected, and a little snug-won't be wearing anything heavier than a thin sweater under it-but I wanted it for moderately chilly days so it works for that. I got a large which is what I'd usually order-I wear a 12 and need room across the shoulders. Unzipped it's very comfy, zipped is SNUG, but looks great and works-and it's WARM!
I would recommend this product.

This is a beautifully cut jacket. The long lines flatter those with generous hips. It runs small, so it requires confidence to buy a size larger than one normally would, but it's well worth the leap of faith. Great to wear with a turtle neck or other (relatively) form-fitting top underneath. Wear alone or as a layer under a bulkier jacket. Perfect for autumn (or winter in the south).
I would recommend this product.

I looked at previous reviews before I ordered this Jacket and most of them said that it was tight in the hips... I have to disagree. I wanted a jacket that looks good with skinny jeans and boot or leggings and boots and still flatters my body without making it bulky or looking baggy. I ordered a Medium and I normally wear a Medium/Small in shirt size and a 28 waist/7-8 in pant size so the hips are roomy and the rest fit nicely. It runs a bit tight in the arms and I can only wear a sweatshirt under it... nothing too thick, but for a fall and not being outside for long periods of time in the winter it is perfect. Also the length sits right below my butt and it is very flattering.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased the Kruser Ridge last month and it's incredible. I've wanted to buy a Columbia jacket for awhile now and it has exceeded my expectations! It's the warmest and most comfortably flexible coat I have.

I bought this jacket for my daughter for Christmas. Its just a shell, but keeps you warm and cuts the wind even at 40 degrees. Shes a junior size Medium in most clothing, but I ordered the Large (after reading reviews), and it fits her great. Highly recommend this jacket for an all-weather must-have!

I thought this was a beautiful jacket and very well made - it is cut at the ribs to give an "hourglass" look without being too tight. However, I would recommend getting a size larger than what you're used to wearing as the arms are a bit small.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this jacket for my daughter. She usually wears a size 6. I loved the color, but the jacket was way too small, tight and could not be zipped up. I sent the jacket back, had to pay $18 for shipping. Then I order a medium, only in red because they did not have the blue in medium. It came in and was a little to small.
This jacket will be returned also. I will have to pay shipping again. If I ever order a Columbia product again, I would order through Amazon where I believe returns postage is free.
I would recommend this product.

It looks sleek and fits comfortably. The inner lining is soft though I wish it was a little warmer, because I also wear this as a jacket liner -- but that might just mean I should have gotten the fleece too.
