exactly what I was looking for light but warmexcellent length March 10, 2014
omni heat reflective lining This coat is much warmer than I thought it would be. I was able to stay warm during this frigid cold winter in NYC while only wearing a light shirt under the coat. The omni heat reflective lining really added warmth to the coat.I am 5'7" , 130 pounds and bought a medium size which fit fine leaving a bit of room for a heavy sweater which I really never needed. March 10, 2014
Mostly satisfied I love the fit and look of the jacket. It is very warm. But I have been having a bit of trouble with the zipper from day 1. It is a struggle to get it started to go up. March 6, 2014
great jacket! very warm, not bulky. long enough sleeves with a fitted cuff.expensive but well worth the money. March 3, 2014
Favorite Jacket This jacket has been helping me survive the Snowpocalypse of Boston.Highlights:*) Comfortable frozen bench sitting and butt coverage*) Awesome hood that blocks wind, rain and snow*) No need for gloves with the tight wrist sleeves and omni-heat insideLowlights:*) Loss of peripheral vision when wearing the hood*) Probably can't wear it year-roundHonestly, you don't have much to lose when buying this amazing jacket. February 26, 2014
Functional and cute The jacket fits perfect. It is extremely warm and has a nice slim fit through the torso. February 26, 2014
Great coat I've only had this jacket about 2 weeks, but I got it just in time for a big dump of snow and some cold weather. I am about 5'4" and 125lbs and ordered the medium because I have wide shoulders; it fits perfectly. The knit cuff around the wrist of the sleeve can make the sleeves seem too long at first, but the tight knit material keeps the cold out. In terms of length, in front it hits just at the top of the knee; it's a bit longer in back, hitting just at the bottom of the back of my knees. February 25, 2014
Thin, light and warm This is a perfect jacket for travel (light weight) and for everyday for temperatures below 40 degree F. I love the interior silver lining, really cool. It's pricey--but you get what you pay for. I had my other puffer jacket for 10 years and replaced it with this new Columbia coat. I figure that I'll have this one for the next ten years. It has all appearances of a sturdy, fashion forward, toasty-warm quality coat. February 24, 2014
Smaller Than Average + Cost to Ship Return This is a great product - no doubt. It is well made and warmIt comes to right around or above the knees, so if you are looking for the longer coat, this one is not it. It will cover the tops of your thighs only.The product runs small. We got it for my mom who fits a large very comfortable in every other coat, with sweaters underneath or layers. However, this fit her super tight just in a t-shirt to the point that it was hard to zip.Additionally, Columbia offers easy returns, but you do have to pay for return shipping. So beware of that, it is not so simple to return. February 24, 2014
Beating the Cold. Overall I'm very pleased with this coat. I'm 5'7'' and 145lbs. according to the size guide I was in between a Medium and a Large. I took the advice from others reviews that the coat runs small and purchased a Large. I got the right size! I was surprised to try it on, with a sweater, and find it fit perfectly. (I thought the Large was going to be very big.)I live in Chicago and spend time in Minnesota and Canada and purchased this coat to keep warm in the sub zero temps. This coat keeps me very warm, even on long walks. The hood is great at keeping the wind out, however I'm still trying to figure out the cinch around the face to tighten the hood. Shoulders are broad and comfortable. The sleeves are longer than most coats and with it's elastic cuffs, it keeps the cold from creeping up your arms.Like other reviews, I also found the zipper challenging the first several times of using it. I think because it is a double zipper you have to be careful to have everything squeezed together and lined up, then give the zipper a little push while you're tugging up on it and away it goes. I would've preferred the teeth of the zipper to be made of metal. It's made of plastic and I'm concerned it's not going to hold up to all the tugging it requires to work over the years.I do like having the double zipper though. Having young children and bending down to help them with their boots and things, I can unzip the bottom zipper up a bit to give me room to squat down and help them without having to take my coat off.The coat has a nice shape to it in the waist, so you're not completely lost in this coat. The bottom of the coat lands about 4 inches above my knee. I would've also preferred this coat to be about 6 inches longer to help keep the legs a little bit more warm.I also like that this coat is light weight and not overly bulky. The pockets on the sides are small with zippers; enough room for keys or a cell phone. There are also secret pockets on the inside of the coat that are more deep.This is a great coat. For the price, I think some improvements could be made on it. I'm happy with my purchase and have received several compliments that it was a nice looking coat. February 22, 2014
Love my new jacket I absolutely LOVE my new jacket! It is comfortable, soft, and does a great job at keeping the cold out. The length is perfect for covering the waist and upper thighs and the hood covers the head great. February 19, 2014
Best coat I've ever owned! I absolutely LOVE this winter coat. I walk my dog about an hour a day regardless of weather conditions, and especially in this winter, it has been a life saver. It is worth double what I paid for it. It is SO warm and I have worn it in negative temperatures as well as pouring rain and it has kept me warm and dry! The fit is perfect for me. I got a medium and I am 5'10" with longer arms. I can easily layer underneath it (not that it is necessary). The arms are plently long and can even go to the middle of my palms if I allow. They also bunch up nicely if you need to use your hands. I would say this coat is true to size and I would highly recommend it! February 18, 2014
very comfy I bought this coat to take on a conference in Wash DC during 25-30 degree temps with a snow storm and rain/sleet with a lot of outdoor walking I wore a sweater once under and I was too hot! it fits snug and very comfy warm and water just rolls off! Love the hood it is a great fit and protective from weather February 17, 2014
AMAZING I love this, i had a winter coat for over six years just because i couldn't find one as warm. Then i went to a columbia store in Mall of America and i was amazed. i looked around and found this amazing one, but they didn't have my size. i search 16 different store for a winter coat and none of them came even close to this. I got mine online and delivery was amazing fast too. i wear this coat every single day and absolutely love!!!! its not only warm, but stylish too. so glad i waited to find this. February 17, 2014
Warm & lightweight without all the bulk I own other omni tech jackets but needed something long with down for this brutally cold winter-this worked great. Bought it one size bigger based on other reviews and it is perfect for me. February 16, 2014
Thin, but Incredibly Warm When it first came in the mail, I was concerned at how thin the package was. I've never needed a down coat before (lived in the fl). But this coat is super warm, and the thinness is actually a great feature. It's flattering, rain/snow resistant, and toasty. Other people say the sleeves run long, but at 5'10", I liked the length.I did have a problem with the left pocket zipper breaking, but I fixed it with 20 minutes and a sewing kit.Overall, fantastic coat. Definitely a worthy purchase. February 16, 2014
Best winter coat This is by far the best winter coat I have purchased. It is extremely warm and yet when I have to run in a store I don't overheat. Only wish I had purchased this coat a long time ago. February 15, 2014
Finally a Warm Jacket My Fashion Conscious Daughter Will Wear My 25 year old daughter is very attentive to the style of every garment. She will forsake comfort for it. On a recent trip to a local city on a bitterly cold day, my heart went out to her shivering in a woolen pea coat as we walked the windy streets. I resolved to find her a warm yet fashionable coat she would be happy to wear. I surprised her with this coat and she was THRILLED! It fit perfectly, was extremely warm and she loved the length and style. She wears it every day to work and out on dates. The coat was a big hit and mama's happy that she's comfortable. February 15, 2014
Keeps my baby warm and dry in sub zero temps I bought this coat for my daughter who is away in college. It has been especially cold (sub-zero) often and she was miserable. When she got the coat, she said it was the warmest coat she has ever had. She paid us a surprise visit for Valentine's Day and I was surprised at how thin it looked. The reflective lining really does its job. She doesn't feel or look like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man but stays warm and dry. She loves it, so I love it.After reading the reviews I did buy one size larger than she wears and it was a perfect fit! February 14, 2014
Couldnt ask for more! After searching high and low for a longer down jacket at the mall, with no luck I decided I needed to order one online, did a little research and decided that a Columbia would be the best fit for me (I have also had them in the past-love the quality). I found this jacket and read the reviews, I decided this was the one for me. It does run a little large- I am usually a medium (140 lbs and 5'5") but I went with the large just for some breathing room if I wore a bulky sweater or something. I have been happy with my choice, I will say the sleeves are pretty long but not a huge deal, and i can feel the extra space the large provides but at the same time it keeps all the cold air out. This jacket has kept me warm in these negative temps, i can go out in -20 weather with just a blouse on underneath and not feel a bit of cold! I would certainly recommend this jacket to anyone who has to brave these cold winters, its worth it! I have to say it is absolutely wonderful to have such a high quality jacket to keep me warm! Thanks! February 13, 2014
Great coat This coat is awesome! The longer length is functional, and yet still stylish. Omni-heat keeps you warm without the bulk. And though it is a down coat, it is still quite slimming.The sleeves weren't as long as I had expected based on other reviews, but still fit my long arms. And it does run a little small compared to other brands, but not enough that I would have considered returning it.I was a little put off by the price at first, but I can say that this coat was worth every penny!! I would absolutely recommend this coat. February 12, 2014
Will keep you warm! If you want a very warm coat, this is it. Works extremely well in single digit and below zero temperature. Runs small and a bit narrow. My only complaint, because of the narrow fit I need to unzip the bottom slightly to make movement a bit easier. February 12, 2014
Women's Hexbreaker II Down Jacket Fantastic coat. Extremely high quality, warm, comfortable, and also stylish. Well worth the price. February 11, 2014
Phenomenal coat I bought this coat for commuting back and forth to college and it works phenomenally well! I am very impressed with the Omni-Heat feature. I am not dissatisfied with any of the features on this coat. February 10, 2014
Did not disappoint I had a close friend recommend this jacket for cold weather days. I ordered it online and have not been disappointed. It is lightweight, fits the body well and functions perfectly. I am sometimes a medium and sometimes a small. The medium fit well for me. 5'8" and 140 lbs. Hope this helps! February 10, 2014
Nice coat runs small Very nice quality and wh.at I am looking for but had to return as it ran too small. I am 4-11 and 110 lbs yet jacket was tight February 10, 2014
Warm and stylish I bought this for my daughter who will be going to University of Chicago in the fall. We gave it a test run this week, during the 5 degree weather/snow Chicago had. It was great! Kept her very warm. The fit was also very good. She is 5' 6" and weighs about 110 lbs. There was still plenty of room for her to layer under the coat. The cut of the coat is tapered in at the waist, so it's not boxy at all. I love that it has the dual zipper. February 10, 2014
Love this jacket! We've had subzero temps and this jacket has kept me cozy. So warm and cute, too! We've had subzero temps and this jacket has kept me cozy. February 10, 2014
Keeps you warm! Very very pleased with the jacket.Although I did notice one zip was broken which I don't really mind because I don't use that zip as it's one of the hand pockets and usually I just keep my hands in the pockets to keep them warm.I live in Boston so definitely need a jacket to keep me warm and I'm thrilled with it - the sleeves are fantastic as it has some cotton at the end and the pockets are also a nice material inside that will really keep your hands warm!Very highly recommended - Couldn't be happier.I usually wear either small or medium clothes but I got a medium which is perfect because you can still fit a sweatshirt easily underneath and not be tight but not loose either. February 9, 2014
All was great except for the sleeves I loved how the jacket fit through the body, the length and the fact that it was warm without the bulk. However, the sleeves were just too tight over the full length of the sleeve. The cuff was so bulky that that it pushed my mittens off. Sadly, I had to return the jacket. February 9, 2014
A Little Narrow in Bust and Hips This jacket is not bulky and a great length. I have several Columbia jackets (can you ever have too many??) and always wear a small. But this one does run a bit narrow so I can't wear bulky sweaters under it. But it is getting me through the polar vortex walking to work so I am appreciative of the snug fit that is keeping out the wind. I also love that it has a great fitting hood that doesn't flop into my eyes. February 9, 2014
Great jacket Light weight, relaxed fit jacket provides comfort and warmth. It has been wonderful in the wind and 20 degrees and below temperatures. Fits a bit smaller than most large. February 9, 2014
Get it on sale I absolutely love this jacket! As a college student I am out walking in the freezing cold every day. It's incredibly warm and I often wear it with only a long sleeve shirt underneath. However, several weeks after purchasing the product the left pocket zipper broke. Very disappointing, but still functional. It's been a great coat for the freezing past couple of weeks! February 8, 2014
Runs to small as others said I bought extra large believing that would fit me from other comments made. It was still too small, I gave it to my daughter, she loved the coat fit her perfect. She wears a Large. I still would love to purchase the same coat IF it would run true to size. February 8, 2014
Maybe not for buxom bosom or bootie women I returned ran way too small. If you buxom on top or bottom this is not the coat for you. February 8, 2014
Great Jacket for tall and slim I can see why people say this jacket runs a little smaller. I am 5'6", thin build and small bust (34A) and this jacket fits me perfectly. The sleeves are quite long but i love that because I usually find my wrists freezing from that space between gloves and end of sleeve! Materials are great. Length is perfect for this winter chill. Love the knit cuff that keeps wind from going into the sleeves.Overall VERY satisfied with this product. February 6, 2014
very small and tight The jacket is nice quality but so not true to size. I wear medium but ordered large and it was very tight ad uncomfortable under my arms. February 3, 2014
Love this coat! I am 5'9" and 125 lbs (with long arms) and the Medium is a perfect fit. I live in Ohio and purchased this coat after experiencing the first "Polar Vortex" with temperatures in the negative digits. We're currently experiencing the second round with temperatures as low as -12 and the coat has been amazing! The sleeves have an additional elastic band that fits snug around the wrists, which doesn't allow any air to sneak in. The Omni Heat provides warmth without the additional bulk, so you can move easily in this coat and don't look like a marshmallow. I purchased the SEA SALT (off white) color and was a little nervous about it getting dirty, but the fabric wicks away moisture and dirt. It's perfect and I love it! January 29, 2014
Love the quality but sleeves are too long! I loved everything about this jacket except for the sleeves. They are way too long for me!! I wear large in all brands and after measuring myself, I ordered the same size for this. Sleeves end at the tip on my middle finger, so now I have to get it altered. The fit otherwise is perfect. January 24, 2014
Trying to Survive this Winter and Look Good I bought this for school to survive the winter in Ann Arbor. Though I couldn't test it out during the first polar vortex because my flight was cancelled, I'm assured there will be one coming this week, which I am excited to test my coat in.So far I've used it in the 20 degree weather range and it works great! Mind you I would only wear a t-shirt underneath and I would be 100% comfy.Interestingly enough, I am still as comfy if I wear a sweatshirt too, not too warm. I imagine it will be fine in the negative degree range. It covers great and has fitted cuffs and also pull strings on the hood, very soft, nice pockets, easy to wash.Only complaint is that the sleeves are a bit long.Also, just a fact, not really a complaint, you will get hot in this jacket if you're just walking around indoors shopping, or something of that sorts.I bought it in Sea Salt, looks great. I didn't want to look like another black blob walking around, considering I have black snow boots, and considering that everyone has the long down jacket in black.I'm 5'3'' and 135 I got a Medium for room in the chest area. January 17, 2014
Can't wait for another cold snap ... ... Ridiculous I know but I'm dying to see how warm this coat keeps me in those single degree temperatures. Wearing it in the average cold temps, I don't feel such a need to layer underneath it because it's so well insulated. I thought of exchanging sizes because it does run a little small but changed my mind when I realized it's warmth. January 15, 2014
myvenus I do like this coat and it seems very warm. I wear a M top but ordered a L and it fit perfect. I did return it, but the only reason was because I wanted a long coat with a belt on it and that was more figure flattering to my smaller waste. But the coat is nice, I just wanted a different style. January 13, 2014
WONDERFUL COAT! I love this coat.It looks good, is comfortable and warm!Is a little too warm when in the car but otherwise I am very pleased and happy I purchased this coat!It does run small as others have indicated-I usually am a medium and the large fits well. I am 5'6" and 145 lbs. January 10, 2014
Excellent Quality This is a perfect cold weather coat. High quality design, attention to details--extra length cuffs, slightly longer in back, easy to reach zippers, well fitting hood. I needed a medium although I am slightly over 100 lbs. I tried it on in the store before purchasing on line for the desired color. December 31, 2013
So warm and comfortable I love this coat -- so warm, and not bulky at all. I love the shape of the hood, as it is shaped well, stays on well, and doesn't impede my vision. The longer cuff is great, although if I put my gloves on after putting on the jacket, they can be hard to pull on all the way. But the longer cuff allows me to go without my gloves most of the time, I'm learning. The zipper can be a little tricky to get started, but I"m working with it to figure out its "trick." Hoping its not a long-term problem. Overall, however, very warm and fits very well. December 29, 2013
stylishly functional! I got so many compliments on this coat! The fit is just wonderful and it is very nice and warm! The creme color is very elegant yet the coat is very functional. I like that is is warm yet lightweight and not so bulky! I highly recommend this coat. December 28, 2013
Windy City's Stamp of Approval This coat is simply amazing. I wore it on one of Chicago's windiest and coldest days and I remained nice and toasty the entire time I was outside. I ordered a size medium as it does run slightly small (I am a petite and curvaceous size 6). I have to admit that I was skeptical as I am anemic and normally a cold natured person but after wearing this without a sweater as well as another recent Omni Heat purchased coat, I am now a true believer! Way to go Columbia!! December 21, 2013
Tight in the shoulders and bad pocket design The size small was too tight in the shoulders with a shirt and fleece under it. I usually wear a small in most coats. It also has front pockets that are not deep and go in towards the belly and not down. When you bend down, things tend to make their way out of the pockets. I sent it back and really like the Madraune long jacket. I tried it on and the x-small almost fits better then the small hexbreaker. I am looking for the madraune in a small. December 16, 2013
Works for Chicago Winter I walk between home and work in downtown Chicago. This coat did the job with high temps in the 20s. The hood stays in place, keeps my neck warm and protected. December 7, 2013
Wonderful coat! I am very satisfied with this coat. It fits perfectly, and it is also extremely warm! I couldn't be happier with this product, and I would definitely recommend it. December 3, 2013
