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 wanted to replace my current current Columbia jacket, as I've had it for many years and it is fading a bit. But this jacket has a strange texture to it. Definitely does not look as though it would last very long. I returned it. Quality was concerning.
Pocket seam was ripped. Stuff falls out all the time. Cloth felt old and stiff and used not soft and fresh and plush like a new Columbia jacket should feel. Fits right, but it did not seem to be a new item.
Within 6 months of having this product the collar started to fall apart. I bought it in June so it did not get much use or washes during the first couple of months. I did not pull any loose threads or pick at it and all of a sudden I notice the layers separating and collar detaching completely. Pretty disappointed since it's a Columbia which I thought was a good brand. It's warm but I definitely won't be buying from them again.
Already knew before folding the jacket out of the package that the fabric was poor quality. I've never felt stiff and boardy and already pilling polar fleece before. Well I thought maybe it will be nice styling because it's Columbia, nope. The ceter front zipper was wavey like I had sewn it in myself, the seams uneven and puckering, the wrists were encased elastic instead of satin elastic (very cumbersome), the jacket was short in length, almost cropped (not sur how this passed QC) and the pull cord with stopper at hem was thinner than a dress shoelace with the cheapest stopper I've ever seen. Maybe it's because I haven't bought polar fleece in 5 years or maybe it's because this is on sale. I'm not sure, but I couldn't justify parting with my money for so many shortcuts tsken on a garment. I'd rather spend more $ on a quality product.
Did anyone else have a problem with ordering the color black??? Ordered both jacket and vest in black and both are charcoal gray, which is not even an option with this item. Returning. Ordering direct from Columbia.
it is rare that amazon sells a damaged product, this jacket is very mistreated in the front , it looks used , it is the first time it happens , and can not return because I live in another country , the costs would be expensive . my wife is very sad for this buy. further el color no is black is dark gray.
