Columbia has finally started making fitted jackets which work for trim people like me with long arms. I had nearly given up on the brand until now. The weight of this suitcase friendly jacket is perfect for travel, especially for Bay Area weather, and the fabric is durable, wrinkle free, and light weight. You won't sweat in this jacket, but it'll keep the wind out and cover your wrists and lower torso. Looks good too. If you keep moving, the jacket works fine over a shirt down into the 40s, even if there's light rain. Saw it at Sports Basement, but had to go online for black.
I would recommend this product.

I love this jacket. I ordered a large as I measure to a 41" chest and it is listed as something that is somewhat slim fit, at least a closer to the body fit. The large was quite big. I returned it for a medium and I'm much happier. I'm 5'10", 175 lbs, I'm in the middle of large and medium usually. FYI
Aside from size...great jacket. Stretches just enough and the weight is perfect for an early morning hike.
I would recommend this product.

I wanted a light jacket for an all round use. This nailed it. I like the bright color. It is a warmer jacket than I thought it would be. When I layer it in cold weather I won't have to wear as much under.
I would recommend this product.

This is a really comfortable, and easy to wear jacket. I normally go with all black soft shells, but my wife talked me into blue toned one and I gotta say its pretty sweet looking.
I would recommend this product.

I love this jacket - Use it for hiking. It's been a great experience so far.
I had an issue with the size but customer service was excellent - they helped me out with a different size in no time.
