shredgirlwrote a review of Columbia Flash Forward Printed Windbreaker - Women's on March 21, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs large
I bought this because I needed a super light windbreaker to wear while snowboarding in the spring (when temps are too warm for a traditional jacket, but you need something windproof to fight off the breeze on the chairlifts). I wore this last weekend while snowboarding in mammoth, and it worked fine. I loved the colors, and how lightweight the material was.
I am really busty, so bought a medium. This fit well, and I was able to wear a fitted layer or two underneath it. The sleeves did feel a little big (not in length, but in overall circumference). This was even more evident when I was riding fast down the runs and the sleeves were kind of flapping in the wind.
I was looking for a cheap, cute jacket and this definitely fits the bill. I would recommend it for spring skiing, but take into consideration that there are no pit zips, and the fabric is noisy when you're riding down the mountain. For the price though, this jacket was great!
