I purchased this to wear on campus in the inclement weather and it does just the trick! I was happy to read in the description that the jacket runs small, so I was able to purchase the right size.
I would recommend this product.

The jacket is light weight, but seems like it will do the job I purchased it for: keeping me dry and warm from wind/water while salt water fishing on the Gulf.
Note: This runs much smaller that the other Columbia jackets. This is my 5th jacket from Columbia and by far the one that runs the smallest. Runs small through bust and shoulders.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this jacket for mild winter weather and rain, and it works great. It keeps me warm and comfortable. I would recommend this jacket. I normally where a L and based on other's reviews I ordered the XL, so that I can layer under it with a fleece or sweaters when it gets really cold. A great jacket for wearing in California though!
I would recommend this product.

I thought the jacket would be a little thicker but it is still a good quality windbreaker. Also the hood is nice and big so it covers your whole head.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for my 14 year old daughter and she LOVES it. The women's cut fits her just right. She usually wears a size medium but the only size left was a large, it fits her almost perfect - just a little bit big. She wears a sweatshirt under it and that is enough to keep her warm going to and from the bus stop during this COLD Minnesota winter that we're having.
I would recommend this product.

We received the order in a timely fashion not long after we ordered it. It was purchased for my daughter in college to wear on rain days. So far so good.
I would recommend this product.

This is not a coat I would ever wear in the winter. When I read this I was expecting a winter coat that was insulated due to the wording of no stranger to cold-weather. This must be cold weather in California. Here in Wisconsin, this would be a spring or fall coat. I kept the coat for that purpose and liked the fit and style, but not what I was expecting to receive when I read the description.
I do not recommend this product.

I live in Florida but have a trip to England planned and needed a packable, light weight jacket that will protect from rain and wind. This jacket met its obligations. Luck had it that it became cold and rainy just after I received the jacket, much like English weather, it performed perfectly. The size runs just a bit snug so if you need to layer, give yourself room.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is great. Its just heavy duty enough for my needs without being super heavy. I wear is alone as a rain jacket or over my insulated jacket as a shell in winter. Great price for staying dry.
I would recommend this product.

This was a Christmas gift. Love the color and Style. Can not coment on size I wear a small but it was a gift in size large it looks like it would be true to size. The problem I have with this jacket it is no more than a wind breaker and wish that details made that more clear. Not for cold weather in New England. A late spring/early fall jacket only. I am giving only 2 stars because of that.

I bought this coat hoping the jacket would be warm being that it is supposed to but it's 34 degrees out right now and I swear the cold stuck like glue to this jacket. I would have preferred to have a woman's jacket that curves at the hips but it is quite boxy in the hip area.
I do not recommend this product.
