Columbia Switchback II Jacket for Ladies
Extremely useful and practiclal
I had another Columbia jacket I purchased a few years ago at a major department store. Because of moving, it had gotten misplaced, lost or donated. I contacted Columbia's customer support and described the jacket and although they do not manufacture the exact jacket any longer, I was very excited to receive this jacket and it was also on sale. It is water resistant and I love the feature with the hood that allows the hood to be zipped inside when not in use in the collar. It also has the side zip pockets that allows for storage for golfing,working out, horse back riding, and is very travel friendly.

A little disappointed
I put on the jacket and started checking myself out in the mirror like any normal woman would when they get new clothes. I noticed that the neck piece was really stiff and kept jabbing into my neck, even without the hood hidden inside it. I also felt like the material could rip by the slightest brush of a tree branch. On the bright side, it was very breathable, and the sleeve and torso length was perfect. (not sure if torso is correct terminology). Plus it wasn't boxy, so it gives you a nice shape.

Love the style, not the color
I love the style of this rain jacket. The cut/fitting is very flattering, but I have to admit that I'm not impressed with the White color. You can see right through this material because it's so thin. If you wear anything other than white underneath you see that color through the fabric, including your skin tone. Not what I was hoping for. I have a black one that I bought in another store & it works great for what I was wanting, the the White color needs some improvements!

Keeps you dry!
Took a walk in the rain and stayed warm and dry! The rain rolls right off. I washed it once and hung it to dry and it was dry in just a few minutes. The fabric softened up a bit too. I will wear it for years. It's perfect to roll up small for travel. The cut is nice for women and is flattering.
