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 bought this as a fall coat but it is not warm enough for Quebec weather. I feel like I could only wear this from may to september. I gave it 4 stars because it is well-made but it is a little big for me, I bought a large and I'm 5'6 / 165lbs.
I used to work for Columbia Sportswear so when purchasing this jacket style I knew that I needed to size down. I’m a petite size. I’m 5’2, 34D, size 4 in jeans & dresses. I ordered an Xs and it is perfect. It fits but still has a little looseness to not look too fitted. If you want to wear multiple layers under this or even a fleece coat, I would not size down because as is it doesn’t have the extra room to accommodate. I could wear a very thin athletic zip up jacket and a long sleeve tee comfortably under this jacket as is right now. If you are average height and built then I would go with your normal size, but if you are petite- size down. This style is not built with petites in mind and the sleeves and length are long and unflattering if you size too big.
This jacket does exactly what it says it will do…..I guess I just expected it to cover my behind and it stopped quite short. However, what was covered stayed completely dry as I stepped out into the rain today. I just didn’t like that my behind and legs were soaking wet. The hood did keep my hair and glasses dry, but I could not figure out the weird drawstring contraption it has. It looked kinda messed up, to be honest. I liked that the sleeves were adjustable. That kept my arms very dry. The jacket is nice and light so it wasn’t killing me to have it on for a minute here in hot Texas. I basically think it is a nice waterproof windbreaker and of that is what you want, this is perfect and is a beautiful color. The jacket stopped just above my hipbones. I am 5’9” and about 130 lbs, 36” bust. I got the medium and it was baggie enough on me to fit a sweater or whatever underneath.
