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 specifically because the description said it had a mesh lining. I already have (and love) the Columbia Splash A Little rain jacket, but it's far too hot to wear during summer rainstorms. I wanted this Switchback to wear in hot, rainy weather, so I was looking for a mesh lining specifically. Well, the only mesh in this jacket is the inner pocket panels. The rest of the jacket is completely unlined, and it was sticking to me just trying it on in my air-conditioned apartment. Gross.
I've been brand-loyal to Columbia outerwear for years, and this is the first time I've been disappointed in a purchase. If the description weren't misleading, I never would have purchased this. It's going back asap!!
The length was okay, but the overall sizing was way too small. I shouldn’t of bought due to the bad reviews but I thought i’d give it a try as it had a few good reviews. I do agree it’s a thin material but not terrible for a rain jacket. The under arms were super tight and you could barely move in it. The only reason this gets 2 stars is because the color of the pink is so pretty! I unfortunately returned mine.
