I expected better from Columbia. The sleeves are too long, the zipper not strong enough for a jacket and poor quality, the inside zipper flap gets caught in the zipper, the velcro not needed and gets in the way of the zipper, there is no snap or nice end of the zipper at the neck - looks unfinished. I'm returning it!
Didn't realize there was no adjustable velcro at the hood, so hood hangs really low over my face. I may try sewing something there similar to the velcro strip that was on my old jacket I had to replace. I'm not a sewer so this will end up being a post apocalyptic-looking fix that probably will not work. I also wish the arms had elastic at the wrist. The length of the arms is oddly a little too long.
Ordered XL which is the size I usually buy in a jacket or coat . It would zip but was too tight at hip . While I like Columbia this was too cheap fitting just a polyester shell with mesh lining as advertised but fit wasn’t worth. Tag attached valued it at $90 retail it’s a $25 jacket at best . Size up in my opinion
I would usually order a small in jackets - I ordered a small and it fit perfectly. The fit was loose, but that's what you want with a jacket like this. I live in AZ, so I didn't need a waterproof rain jacket, per se, I just needed a light windbreaker. This would have worked well for that purpose, but I could *not* get over how loud the crinkliness of this jacket was! It was like crumpling up wax paper any time I moved. I sent it back for that reason. However, if that doesn't bother you, then I'd HIGHLY recommend this jacket!
It is lightweight, but still has a plastic feel. Also I'm a taller female 5'11, ended up going with a mens instead, more room in the shoulders and the arms are longer. This is better fit for someone 5'7 and below
I was expecting a little more form this jacket. It’s fine, but the fit is a little weird I guess. I am 5’5 and 114 pounds. The sleeves are pretty big around the wrists. There is velcro to tighten the sleeves, but without tightened it’s very loose. The jacket is loose around the chest and waist, but tight at the hips. The jacket in general looks big on me unless I have layers under it. I haven’t wore it out in the rain yet so I can’t speak about it being water proof.
It's a little big, the chest folds into itself funny cause it's too big. It's definitely too big for me, but allows room for layers though. It's really really noisy though. I've never had a noisy rain jacket and it's annoying. I might return it.
Unfortunately I purchased this coat under the impression that sizing up would leave me with much room to layer. Not the case at all and I'm not sure if I can exchange or received another coat instead. Knowing how reputable a company as Columbia is, I assumed their raincoat would also live up to the high standard. This is not the case and I dont see myself buying from them again.
Runs big. I normally wear a medium I ordered a small. Fits perfect. Water proof lightweight. Only issue is it’s very loud the material makes a lot of noise when you move or walk. I wanted this for work around my horses. It’s very loud for them.
I’m 36 D chest ( small size worked ) Measurements 36-26-34. In ordered a small fits perfect
I got this to replace my old one I left at the track. I loved the other one since it covered my butt. The other thing I don't like is that the zipper on the pocket is up when closed. The other one closed at the bottom. I do like this hood better. When you zip it up all the way it is closed. My old one you had to use those silly strings. This one has them also but the hood closes well with just zipping up.
