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.
This is an average light weight rain jacket, but I bought a large and it barely fits me and I normally wear a small-medium. I am very surprised because Columbia normally has good quality clothing. Things made in China especially often end up needing to be ordered 2 sizes larger. I will keep it since was buying a couple of rain jackets for future guests to use but now my imminent guests will be out of luck.
I’m a little disappointed with the jacket, especially for the price. It feels cheap, the zipper is cheap plastic and the material makes a loud crinkle noise every time I move. Also, while walking in the rain with hood up, it repeatedly falls down. They might as well left the hood off the jacket because it it useless. I will be returning this jacket. Very disappointed in the Columbia brand.
This cut is tight in the hips, I'm basing this off a few people who have this jacket. However, I'm only reviewing because the yellow picture is a nice, pale yellow. I saw one this color at the Columbia store. The one I received however, is bright rubber duck yellow, so keep in mind the color may not be as appears.
Although it seems to otherwise be a very good jacket -- I bought one for each of my three daughters -- the zipper on this one broke after being worn fewer than ten times. My daughter is without a needed jacket, and I'm very disappointed with the purchase, as a result. This isn't a cheap item, and Columbia is considered to be a decent brand; I expected better.
Bluebell color is much darker than pictured. Check out the photos by Emily which shows the true color. Inside mesh is scratchy. Overall disappointed and I usually like Columbia wear. The kid clothing is so much nicer.
I originally bought an XL from a local store and it swallowed me whole! It was huge! They didn’t have a L for me to buy when I took the XL back so I came and ordered it on amazon. It’s sooo much smaller than the XL. It fits my body but the sleeves are short. It severs it’s purpose but for the price it should fit!
