To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love the colour of this coat, and the cut fits great. Its very light and you can stuff it in a small pocket. However, I bought this one (Colombia) for more money than any of the others since it claimed to be breathable. I use this coat to mountain bike and road bike and it is sweaty as hell on the inside. The whole inside will be wet which makes me cold. Its cute and does keep rain off but if you're gonna be wet inside might as well buy the much cheaper options which also had reflective material on them. Edit after first real rain test: completely not waterproof. I'm soaked through after only an hour of light rain. I'd return this if I could. Literally brutal.
This is a very nice jacket for the price ($50, Columbia pricetag attached was $99). I ordered a L based on reviews I read and it just fits. It's a bit snug around the hips but everywhere else, fits perfect. My only complaint is I wish it was a bit longer at the back and maybe more hip room. I also purchased the Switchback style recently and it seemed to fit much better and is quite long at the back. It's a beautiful sapphire Blue and hopefully it'll be warm enough for walking. The switchback has a lining and was very comfortable as far as warmness .
I work in a garden center and bought this jacket to keep me dry when I have to be outside in the rain. All my other jackets were "water resistant" but this one is water PROOF. it is mesh inside to help vent it and keep moisture from collecting when it's zipped up. I like the velcro on the cuffs so I can adjust on the fly to close it more or open it for ventilation. I did buy a size up so I had room to move (moving plants, pushing carts, etc.), but it still fits great and doesn't look too big on me.
I really like this jacket. The blue I got was a bit darker than expected but I still really like it. Also, because of the reviews I thought it would run large but it doesn't. My jacket is a bit smaller on me than I expected but it does fit. I do not have big hips but if I did I would have gone up a size. I still gave it 4 stars though because I do like it!
This is an effective jacket--good color, and pretty good fit--arms waaaaayy too long for circumference and wrists waaaayy too big, zipped up it is tight around a non-fat middle with only thin sweater---but overall I am glad for it and will use it til it wears out.
