Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindi Great jacket I was introduced to the new product line from Columbia - Omni Freeze at the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon Expo in May. This is a great product line for athletes that enjoy comfort while engaged in our favorite sports. I was just on vacation and found that I had not packed my jacket, so I stopped by Dick's on a rain day to pick one up. When I saw a Columbia Omni Shield jacket I thought I would give it a try. The jacket is lightweight, however keeps you warm in cool restaurants. The sleeves have velcro tabs and also roll up and stay in place for a 3/4 sleeve coverage. There is a hood that can be unfolded out of the collar as needed. It folds up nicely to be carried. I just used it at home for marathon training in a light sprinkle of rain and it was comfortable and shielded me from the rain. It is a great jacket for form and function. July 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoonWallow Light weight jacket This jacket runs a little small, so order one size up. It does have a slenderizing fit and design, which I am very please with. I like the ability to fold it tight and carry in my purse/tote. It is very light weight. The side pockets are shallow and I would not chance carrying anything valuable in them. I am not a hood wearer, so I cannot comment on that, but the collar is stiff and does stand up rather high, which may bother some. I keep the jacket unzipped at the neck to avoid it poking under my chin. I have this jacket in turquoise, black and white, it's perfect for those chilly summer days. Because this jacket is thin & light weight, your clothes do show through the white one, which makes it my least favorite, otherwise I love the jacket! November 9, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by sunnida Jacket way too tapered for layering I bought a large so I could wear a turtleneck under. The shoulders were too big, the sleeves too long but the jacket was so tapered it barely zippered across my chest. There was no way I could put anything under it except a bra. Many of my jackets are medium so I can't figure out their sizing. I returned it. January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by gdaig1981 Great Jacket!! I was looking for a rain jacket to wear to a concert that I was attending. I didn't want to spend too much but I wanted to get a good quality jacket. I found this one on sale in a bright purple. I love love love the color and the quality of the jacket! It's been a pretty rainy summer where we live so I've been able to wear this jacket a lot and I am so glad I purchased it. It is a good fit around the waist and hips. August 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by kptaszek Perfect! but ran a little small... Normally a size small but this one was tight. Returned for a medium. Good buy. December 21, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by amby great for rain but gets hot I burn up if I'm wearing this in the summer during sprinkles. But it keeps me dry. With the hood was bigger because if I have a poney tail it barely covers my head. I can also feel the coldness of the rain drops on my skin. But it does its job as being waterproof so I plan onn getting another. I'd never pay 60 though. Got mine for 30. February 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by JackieJohnson Absolutely Wonderful! This jacket arrived earlier than expected! It is a little brighter than pictured, so it stands out and is even more gorgeous. Very lightweight and can pack down, and it perfect over a hoodie or fleece for the rainy and wintery days! Great for running. Would absolutely buy again. November 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by emmy Great! I recently bought this jacket to take with me on a fall cruise. We had heavy rain the other day so I put it on. It is very rain repellent but still lightweight and comfortable! July 23, 2014
