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.
Columbia is not constant in their measurement. I currently have.XL Grey one, and wanted to purchase a brighter color...I ended up having to purchase an 2X!!!! And no, I didn’t gain weight for I still wear the grey one daily.
I bought an Acadia jacket 6 months ago directly from the Columbia site and loved it, so I just ordered another one but this time from Amazon. This one was clearly different from the original. Different fabric, no elastic at the cuff, the Columbia logo was not embroidered, and several other small differences. I am returning this because the quality is not nearly as good as the original.
I am beyond disappointed with this. I bought a Columbia jacket expecting it to be of great quality, but this weekend, I found a gaping hole in it, not even along a seam. I purchased this on October 17th 2018, and found the hole on November 23rd. Unfortunately, the return window closed on November 16th, otherwise I would have returned it for a refund. I can’t believe I paid just almost $53 to only wear this a handful of times. This is the last time I buy Columbia products from Amazon since they gave me less than the standard 60 day return window.
Let me begin by saying I read the reviews and bought this anyway, MY MISTAKE!! This is nowhere near a Columbia jacket, it is a cheap Chinese knock off. The fabric is cheap, the sleeves were 5 inches longer then my arms, the hood did not detach, I could go on. I did my homework before returning it just to make sure it wasn't supposed to be like that. I went to a local retail store, found the exact same jacket, it was the quality this one should have been and less expensive to boot. Thank goodness Amazon took it back.
Itchy, itchy, itchy. It looked nice and the Large fit a 12/14 very nicely. But it ITCHED even when worn under a long sleeve shirt. Had a slight oily smell too. Will have to return as makes me miserable to put it on for even a couple of minutes. Glad I tried it around the house before taking it out into the world or risking the return time.
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 ordered a women's XL for my mom for Christmas. I ordered it early. Knowing it would fit her because mine that was a Large was just slightly too small for her, I didn't open it before giving it to her. It was so discouraging Christmas day that she couldn't begin to get it on because it was so small! It was marked 18/20 XL, but my 15 year old daughter who where's and adult XSmall was the only one who could wear it! It fit her perfectly! The coat they sent me was either a youth size or mis-sized and now the return window has closed. Be careful if you buy from this seller and don't let the return window expire before opening it. I'm out $55 and my mom has no gift for Christmas. Sad day.
This "jacket" is a super super thin shell. I wanted to return it but it was past the window so I'm now stuck with a woman's jacket (not a woman) that I can't use. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who would like to be the slightest bit warm.
I bought this knowing that I'd be hiking in the rain. Yes, it fit well and kept my upper body dry. But the hood does not have a drawstring, so it doesn't stay in place. I had to hike with one hand holding my hood in place during a torrential downpour. So basically this is worthless as a raincoat.
