Women's Principia™ Softshell Jacket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended for rock climbers This jacket was much lighter than expected, and the soft inner lining was a nice touch for warmth. I'd say that this was designed with rock climbers in mind - the arms are definitely on the long side, but this is ideal for climbers. It was a bit boxy fitting in the torso, but that should make getting a mid-weight vest under it just fine. I ended up not keeping it (it was just a poor fit on me), however the functionality of the jacket cannot be argued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering Fit Flattering fit to the light soft shell. Material appears to shed light moisture well. Light fleecing on inside provides some warmth. Great jacket to throw in your bag in case the weather turns south.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good over-layer Fits a little larger than I expected but it's a great size for fitting layers underneath. Great material.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sleeves way too long This item is just average. For the quality it's way overprices and the sizing is weird. The sleeves have gorilla arms. The overall fit is still on the large size. Nothing special here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Love love love this jacket! I will start by saying it is not what I was expecting its a lot lighter than I anticipated. That being said it still keeps me very warm I bought a large definately could have gone smaller but big hoodies fit under it very well. It has xtra long arms which is so nice as other jackets expose my wrists brrr. You wont be dissappointed as long as you realize that it is light and not a heavy duty extreme weather jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket Weight for windy/rainy weather This is a nice fitting jacket and I love the color! I ordered the red onion which is really a raspberry color (much lighter than it shows on the computer) I live in Oregon where weather can be windy and rainy so this will be one of my go to jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricipia softshell This jacket is a beauty. I love the color. It fits a little snug, but it's still will work for fall or spring weather. I won't send it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute fall/winter softshell! I got the Principia jacket just yesterday and am already in love. My long monkey arms fit perfectly in the Medium, and the body of the jacket is just right for layering underneath or over. My favorite feature is the adjustable hood. So many jackets have hoods that flop back at the first gust of wind - this one stays put perfectly without making me look ridiculous. It's perfectly warm in 30-40degF weather with just a long sleeve shirt underneath it, but will definitely accommodate an additional layer. The front pockets are also deep and roomy - perfect for stashing your cell phone, wallet, keys, whatever!
