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.
Fit me really well. So comfortable. I like how it keeps me warm in early morning. I have washed it and it still looks the same. The thumb holes on the arms are nice to have but it’s not comfortable to use. But this is not a huge deal.
I wear size L or XL, size 14 jeans. I ordered this jacket in a L and an XL. The L was a little too snug and the XL fit pretty well with a little room for a cardigan over my top so I kept the XL. It's the end of March by the time I got the jacket and it's been in the 50's-60's outside so I don't know how warm the jacket is. It's a lightweight jacket. I like the way the jacket comes in at the waist to give a slimming look. I bought the mineral pink color which I think is really nice. The collar is fleece-lined inside.
The washing instructions on the inside tag says Machine wash, cold water, gentle cycle, dry on low heat and remove promptly. From past experience, I'll say that a jacket made of this material should get very little dryer time. The zipper on a jacket from a different manufacturer that I previously owned buckled a bit after being in the dryer for 15 minutes on low heat. I won't let this jacket tumble in the dryer for more than 5-10 minutes so it fluffs up and then air dry it the rest of the way.
I adore this jacket--fits better than any I've had (other than another Columbia jacket). However, it had a sickly sweet chemical smell, which took five washings in hot water, detergent, and white vinegar, to remove. Do manufacturers do this to keep insect and mold damage from occurring? Please know, this stuff is toxic to people, too, and for someone with a keen sense of smell, unbearable. From Bangladesh, not China, but it seems Bangladesh has adopted the same ghastly practice of treating their products with toxic chemicals. What will it take? Legislation? Returned products? I've returned many products, even books, for this reason.
Originally I had purchased the hooded one exactly like this. The large was way to large and the medium was too snug. Decided to try this one instead because I just loved the color. Medium too small and large was just right! I am normally a size large.
I absolutely love this coat and how comfortable and light it is. My only thing is I still have to layer up under this jacket with another hoodie to keep warm in weather under 30 degrees, not my favorite thing but I don’t mind it to much.
Great quality! Got this and Columbia’s fleece to wear on colder winter hikes and they’re both amazing. I think the sizing is a bit big. I got the XS and still wish it was a bit smaller. Even with the fleece on underneath. But SUPER warm and comfy!
