Way too small and has no stretch, so I sent it back within 5 minutes of receiving it. I own multiple Columbia sportswear jackets and coats and I order the same size I wear and all of them and this one was way too small and because it has no stretch, there was no way it was going to work.
I am 160lbs and 5'6 very curvy small chest x large fit perfectly with plenty of room for sweaters etc... I really like the functionality of the hood as well, doesn't hang over to the point where I can't see but hood covers enough to where I don't get wet, good design, I noticed Columbia runs small so I get x large in their clothing. I have big thighs and the jacket doesn't hug that region, fits nice and loose but not too bulky looking either. The sleeves have a Velcro options so sleeves can be more fitting or loose whatever you prefer.
At first the price kept me from ordering, but it has turned out to be a great jacket and worth the price. Sometimes I have to order up 1 size, but this fit just right! (5'4", 175 lbs, pear shaped female!) The mesh lining makes this jacket very comfortable. It is breathable, but repels rain really well!
My old Gore-Tex jacket finally went kaput much to my dismay. I usually wear a large shirt, but I got the extra large jacket and I'm glad I did. It fits without any pulling when I sit down in the car when it's fully zipped. There is alot of extra room if I need to wear a fleece jacket underneath. It's not as warm as my old jacket though and I don't like the crinkly plastic sound.
The jacket is lightweight and fits appropriately. You can adjust the fit either by a drawstring or Velcro. I dislike the Velcro use on the sleeves and zipper. The material crackles like a cheap windbreaker.
I bought this jacket for my daughter who was headed off to college. She needed to have something to keep dry as she made her way around campus. She loves it and says it has really come in handy and kept her dry in the wind and rain! I decided to get one for myself since she loved it so much! I was really looking forward to mine to arrive and it came today. I usually buy a size XL and figuring it was a rain coat, I thought it would be roomy. Not at all. With just a light sweater underneath it just fits. I will probably return it. So disappointed.
I received the product and it was a perfect fit. Since it had been storming here I needed a jacket that didn’t get soaked when I ran through the rain. I felt I could shake off most of the rain and it dried pretty fast too.
