This jacket is of excellent quality. I don't like 100% nylon jackets because when it's hot they stick to your skin. This one is soft, like a microfiber. Some have commented about the length of the jacket being too short, but to me it's perfect. Great jacket!
I would recommend this product.

This jacket fits perfectly with a little extra space for movement, which I find hard sometimes because of my chest size. It bundles up small and barely takes up room in my daypack~!

I will not be able to fully test this jacket out until I leave for my vacation in a couple of months but it fit great; the jacket is lightweight, perfect for layering; and it is made very well. I can't wait to give it a spin!!

I have not run the jacket through a full contingent of weather, so this review is limited to my July 5th - foggy damp, then cold wind and finally sunny, warm and windy day at the San Francisco Casting ponds. (just off Ocean Beach)
The jacket was spot on with a light t-shirt underneath. I normally get a 1 x but ordered the 2x to maker sure I had room for Nano Puff insulator or my waders. Glad I did the 1X would have been more of a "fitted" fit.
The hood fits nice over a ball cap. Without a cinch strap I'm not sure it would work well without a hat.
I just might get another color...
I would recommend this product.

I love this jacket! I wear it when I bike and hike. It blocks the wind and the rain and it's very comfortable to wear. The pink is definitely pink! It's light weight enough that I just roll it up and shove it in my bag so that I have it if I need it. I wish I had one in every color!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this jacket for work. I am outside a lot and want to be prepared for the quick climate changes that occur in our area. It has been perfect for me. The jacket keeps me cool when the sun is shining and warm enough when it starts raining. The hood helps keep me dry and I never get cold. I have received a lot of compliments about it as well. The sleeves are a bit long but otherwise it fits great since I often wear bulky clothes. Great price too.
I would recommend this product.

I wanted to love this jacket, the colors are so cute (I ordered 3 colors to try green, pink and purple). The jacket is just too short esp for plus size. If they made it longer it would be perfect, had to return them all.

i have 2 of these jackets because i love them so. It is perfect for spring and fall, good for light mist. (do not recommend for heavy winter rain). It is Durable, great for riding my bike, good flexibility and appreciate the pockets that zip. one of the best coats i own. Fits comfortably and has a nice style, not boxy.

This jacket is light - I wear during moderate activity and I'm never too hot or too cold.
Though it doesn't look like it, the material does not absorb rain and I stay nice and dry.
My favorite feature is the elastic on the sleeves and hood. The sleeves don't hang past my wrist and the elastic isn't so tight that it's annoying. Seattle has a lot of wind along with the rain, and because of the elastic on my hood, when this is zipped all the way up the hood never blows off of my head.
Finally, I think it is a clean, simple, sharp looking coat and it fits very well, true to size.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this jacket from a Columbia outlet for my morning jog. It feels very comfortable, light and easy to move around. The upper arms fits perfectly and the length for someone who is only 5'2" is just right. I purchased one size up. I have another Columbia rain jacket and it truly sticks to my skin. This jacket is perfect for spring and fall weather in Cali. I would highly recommend this product.

This jacket is perfection! I first ordered the black and have worn it to death. The fit is comfortable. I am a 16-18 and the 1x is perfect. The XL is too tight. It is soft yet it wicks away moisture beautifully. The collar will stand up or lay flat. It's cool enough to wear in CO summers with a tank underneath. It's sporty looking but not crunchy and noisy. The pink is so bright and gorgeous! I have ordered three other colors and plan to wear them regularly. This one is a home run!
I would recommend this product.

I wanted a nice lightweight jacket that would be good for everyday running around and something that would be great in light rain. This is PERFECT. It is NOT plastic feeling. I did not want a windbreaker or rain jacket feel. I love the material. This is perfect for our early Springs and also the Fall weather in New England. Very good quality, and I liked the hood because too often hoods just fall over the face / eyes and they are really not useable. This hood is smaller and I used it this morning in our drizzly weather and I could walk and see without it falling over my face.
I would recommend this product.

I was super suprised at just how COMFORTABLE this jacket is. It has a lot of stretch to it which makes it a perfect fit for just about anyone. It's very lightweight and perfect for the rain, but it would definately need to be layered for any warmth. I can't wait to wear it on my Portland trip next month. My only complaint is that I wish it was just a little bit longer. It falls right about to the hips (and I am only 5'3"

I ordered this item from a 3x to a 2x and then gave up and returned it. It feels too baggy in the chest and stomach area even with sizing down, too shirt at the waist, and too long in the arms. I'm 5 ft 4 inches and I'm not as big as my weight makes me sound but I am large chested.
I really liked the purple color but it just didn't fit right. The material feels so nice too.
Try to down size and go from there
I would recommend this product.

I bought the turquoise jacket and it is very pretty. Made out of great quality. I bought the jacket according to my measurements and it fit nicely. It's pricy but I waited for it to go on sale. It's great for layering, it's very light weight and is perfect for a wind breaker and a light rain jacket.
Perfect for hiking on a spring day.

Don't get me wrong. This jacket is great! Built with quality materials. Made for the wear and tear. I read other reviews saying it ran small and to order a size up. I even measured myself to make sure I ordered the correct size. I was swimming in this jacket. But what I was truly hoping for was a softshell jacket made with a neoprene type material. This felt like a very soft and brushed windbreaker. It would be perfect for a slightly chilly or rainy spring/ fall day as it is light weight and water resistant.
I would recommend this product.
