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.
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.
It didn't come with a tag attached so that was already an indication of something: just as I thought, when I tried it on and placed my hands inside, there was a tiny scrap of what might have been a sachet (advil? something) and 3 tiny parts of styrofoam. I just wasn't in a good condition to go to UPS to drop a return and really liked the color but knowing that someone HAD WORN this was not really pleasant.
This jacket looked okay, but it was a slightly large on me. (I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs and I ordered a small). The only real issue I had with it was that the hood was kind of an odd shape and wouldn't stay on my head. It wasn't adjustable with drawstrings to make it tighter, either. I ultimately returned it because of this- otherwise, I'd be walking around in the rain holding the hood over my head.
Bright rose color is very pretty imo, however the inside liner which is the color next to your face is not. Ashy tan is the way I would describe the liner color and unless you have the coat zipped totally up it will be by your face, for me this did not look good. I sent this one back and purchased a different color. The fit is good (fitted at the waist which I like) and the coat appears to be well made.
Love the color. Love the bit of curve in the fit. The hood is huge, and would definitely keep out the rain! I like the feel of it, it would definitely keep out the wind and rain! But the overall fit is confusing. This jacket fits like a MEDIUM in the arms and across the back, but an L or XL around the hips. I really want to love this jacket, but I think it's going to be too uncomfortable.
I was looking for a light-weight rain jacket that would be nice for summers. The Bluebell color on my computer looked bright and cheerful - almost a periwinkle. The one I received was more a dull, fairly dark cornflower blue. I liked the jacket though the color is unacceptable to me. I might order in another color and hope that it is brighter.
This is a nice product. Would have liked for it to fit. Even cannot return it as it said 'No return on this product." I ordered a medium and it would have been tight even for a small. So now I have an expensive jacket that I cannot wear!
I ended up returning this jacket as it was too big for me. It is very light and I think it would be easy to travel with. But I'm usually a small/medium for t-shirts, running more medium than small, so I thought a medium would be good for me as I was planning on wearing layers (I'm 5'7" and 130 lbs). It felt like a bag over me. The cut wasn't flattering. Also, the material is really noisy. I can imagine it being annoying in the quiet wilderness.
