I had been wanting this jacket for months and finally decided to invest the money and let me tell you... it was WELL worth the investment. This jacket is perfect for cool days and even better in cool, wet days.
I bought the Large, although I typically wear a Medium... I wanted the ability to wear a sweater under it without any bunching issues. I'm glad I chose to go with the Large.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is wind resistant and keeps me dry in the rain. and sleet. It provides warmth without the bulkiness of the typical winter puff coat. I have the interchange style jacket in a small and I ordered this jacket in a small as well, I feel that this runs a little snugger than the interchange. A medium would be more appropriate most likely if I plan to wear a sweatshirt underneath. If you are in between sizes, I would choose the larger of the 2. This jacket has little to no stretch so it will not stretch out over time. It has a more fitted style. Sleek black look, and body contouring. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase.
I would recommend this product.

Love the jacket, fits well except through the hips. If you have wider hips, you may want to go up a size unless you are tall and the jacket won't hit you there. Otherwise, LOVE IT.

Thought this was going to be a little heavier for colder weather, but was great when we warmed up to the 40's.
Wears great, fits great, clean up was great. Glad I purchased this jacket from Columbia.

I was a little nervous getting this jacket because I have large shoulders and arms but a small waist and big bust so I would always get an extra large when in reality, I'm a medium is shirts. But I got a large this time and its a bit snug but comfortable. If you have big hips like me, it'll be just a little tight. It all depends how snug you like your clothing to be.
I would recommend this product.

I have been waiting to get a Columbia softshell jacket for awhile now. I've never found a color or a style I liked enough to buy. When I came across this jacket online, I bought it without hesitation. The jacket is great. Fits great, looks great, and feels great. Very pleased. And the color (inkling) is so pretty. Very happy and I highly recommend.
I would recommend this product.

Can you describe the color "inkling"?
Posted March 14, 2014
It looks to be a dark purple...but I'm not sure if my computer monitor is showing it properly. Can you describe the color "inkling" in this jacket? Thank you for your help!

I don't like bulky coats so I absolutely love this coat. It keeps out the cold but doesn't add a lot of layers. I already have the black one and wear it all the time. Definitely recommend this.

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.

This jacket was tight across the chest and too long in the arms. Overall a very weird shape. I'm sending it back, and kicking myself for buying from a company with such a poor shipping and returns policy.
I do not recommend this product.

I've been looking for a jacket that has long sleeves for my long arms. I'm 5 10' and wear a size 12. I'm glad I purchased an XL. Fits great and is a quality product.

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 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 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.

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 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.
