Rated 5 out of 5 by Not sure yet. I got this to get ready for winter, but I live in New Mexico, so it's not cold enough yet to make a true review. But from what I've seen and felt so far, it's worth it, I needed a replacement for my old columbia jacket and this more than met my needs. I think it's a tad over kill for this area but I also bought it because I'll be moving back east soon and I feel I made a great choice. The only problem I might see is about the sleeves haven't check if there are any buttons, but it was kinda hard taking off the jacket with the sleeves tightened down, we'll see, otherwise I'm more than happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Affordable and functional I bought this jacket to wear under my patrol vest. Very warm with the liner zipped in. Hood works well without a helmet. Overall a good winter/ski jacket. Might be nice if the shell also had omni heat, rather than just the liner. What would be really nice is the option to purchase a puffy to zip into this jacket instead of the fleece. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo is the bomb :) Good product that met my expectations. It is built well and the technology lives up to the billing. It is stitched well but I had issues with the velcro when I first looked at the product at an REI store; it was damaged. They did not have the correct size so I ordered directly from the Columbia site. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo Great jacket wore it daily on a 14 day trip to Alaska worked as a windbreaker, raincoat and was fairly warm. There is no temperature rating on the coat so layering is suggested October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Jacket on the market Have worn Columbia gear for 10+ years, This jacket has all the top features needed with the quality only Columbia offers. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Jacket for College! I bought the Collegiate Navy color, and wow, I was impressed. You can't tell in the pictures or video, but the material of the jacket is top notch. The outside looks very nice and resistant. I started sweating as soon as I put the jacket on in my room. I am in Chicago for school, which everyone knows is really cold. I haven't faced a winter here yet, but I've been in Boston's winters, and this Jacket can definitely hold its own there. The only problem, which isn't a problem, is that since I am rather short (5'5"), I have shorter arms. The small size jacket fits perfectly except for the sleeve length. The sleeves are a little long on me, however, if I use the cuff adjusters, it's alright. However, the arms look a bit scrunched up, which is fine with me, but I wish it was a tad bit shorter. Better longer, than too short. Overall, I am satisfied. September 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo Excellent in an extremely cold Michigan winter August 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great I love this product for my husband. He was so much warm in NYC winter and dry. He loved it. June 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by All it is supposed to be I bought this for my son and he loves it. Interchangables are great for changing winter weather and can be stripped down for summer mountain weather. I now want one for myself. March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This jacket is super warm and looks great! This jacket is very warm, and perfect for our Michigan Winters. It's unbelievably light weight and has convenient pockets. I ordered the red one for my 16 year old son, and he's gotten many compliments on it. March 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light Comfortable & Warm This jacket is for our tweener son. The jacket is so light as compared to my Bugaboo Interchange which I've had for a few years now. Our son has told us that the jacket is very comfortable and warm. March 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo Love it. Very versatile February 22, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointing Not nearly as good as previous versions of the Bugaboo. No interior pockets and the 2 exterior chest pockets aren't very useful. The hood is not lined nor is it attached/sealed all the way around the collar. It snaps on each side and then attaches w/ a zipper in the center. The result are gaps between the collar and hood that will most likely give you a nice blast of cold air down your neck. The fleece lining isn't nearly as thick or heavy as on my last Bugaboo. If the silver reflective dots really do provide any benefit, I haven't noticed yet after a week of wearing in single digit temps. You will probably want a layer underneath w/ another fleece or sweat shirt. On the plus side, the size and fit are exceptional. I'm 6-5 and a pretty big guy and the 2XL Tall fits PERFECTLY! I probably should have returned after the first day I wore it outside, but didn't have a choice as big and tall outerwear isn't exactly easy to come by. I hate to write such a negative review, but I think that Columbia dropped the ball on this jacket. I loved my old Bugaboo, but it had simply gotten too big and I thought I could get a nice replacement for it during the end of season sale. At this price point, I would have expected something better. Not sure if this is a case of the bean counters dictating product or what, but this is a total disappointment. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat, great price I was in desperate need for a winter coat. I always wanted Columbia brand but got it until now. The coat is lightweight. Thinner than my older coat, yet very much warmer. I love it!!! I definitely recommend this coat. BTW I live in western New York (state) AND it is FREEZING here at the time of this review. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men's Bugaboo Interchange Jacket I am a woman and bought this jacket for myself as I love the color. It's currently my favorite and love it so much, I bought a second one 3 weeks later for a back-up. It's been below zero lately and this is very warm. When it gets a bit warmer, just zip out the lining and it will be perfect for early Spring as well as Autumn. One of the best 3-season jackets I've owned. February 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by coat Bought this for my son. Fits well. Looks nice. He liked the jacket that can be removed to wear separately. We have not had much wet, winter weather yet since he got it so not sure how it is in snow but it seems like it should be fine. February 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must-have! This jacket is very impressive. Living in Seattle, we've had a lot of rain recently. I wore it the other day and was very comfortable, both in dryness and warmth. I was expecting to have to remove the inner shell because it's not very cold right now in Seattle, but the jacket (as is) was amazing. I am happy it will be in my closet for years to come. I am 5'9" and 170lbs. Athletic build. Perfect fit even with layers on underneath. February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by MEN’S BUGABOO INTERCHANGE JACKET Had been looking at this jacket for a couple of months. Caught it on sale in Dark Navy for less than half of list. I'm 6'0", 200 lbs. The jacket fits me perfectly and allows room for a t-shirt and long sleeve fishing shirt without being too tight. Fished in 30º weather and didn't get cold once. The sleeves run little long for normal wear. But, the extra length helps when fishing. The liner jacket worn alone is very nice looking. I'm always impressed with the quality of Columbia products at their different price points. February 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by warm keeps me warm with not a lot of layers February 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Men's Bugaboo Jacket Great jacket overall. Originally ordered XL and had to return it for XXL. I am 6' and weigh 230 but I have a large chest. The fit is snug around my upper arms so that when I wear a sweater under the coat the inner sleeves do not slide on easily. I love wearing the jacket and appreciate the interchange functionality. January 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Jacket This jacket is beyond what I was looking for. Great constructions, lots of small details come together to make this jacket wonderful. Works for any conditions: snow, rain, cold, wind, it performs in all. Love the color I got, green. January 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good looks - Bad insulation I ordered this jacket to replace my two existing winter coats for the Chicago winter as I believed Columbia jackets would be more effective, and am utterly disappointed as the weather goes sub-zero. Pros: I love the design and it looks very stylish. Cons: It does not have enough insulation to get you through midwest winter. Outer layer is almost as thin as a sheet and inner layer is just a fleece with omniheat lining. Arms feel very cold if you bend it from elbows since the jacket itself gets cold and there is not enough cushion not to transfer that coldness to your arms. Hood is very long. Even though I have a 'long' head, hood goes over my head and covers my eyes. All in all, it looks very nice but I regret buying this jacket because it is not better than my two other jackets warmth-wise. I would have returned if the weather was cold enough to test when I received the jacket. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Field Jacket Bought this because I wanted something that was going to keep me warm and dry in freezing conditions but was also lightweight and not bulky. It is not built to be as warm as other coats that are usually bulkier, but you can compensate for that by wearing a thermal layer underneath a long-sleeve t-shirt or sweatshirt. December 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome product Incredible jacket from a reputable company. Great fit and function. An improvement would be to use zippers on the chest pockets rather than Velcro and also incorporate zippers for both interior pockets. The interior pockets are large and accommodating but could be better integrated into the jacket. December 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Escellent warm jacket for rainy, cold weather. I bought this jacket for my dad and he loves it. It's great for rainy and cold weather. When he walks in light rain, the water just beads and rolls off. He loves all the pockets and how warm it is. We like that there is a detachable hood that zips off, but I would say that the zipper should run all the way across the hood, not just part way (in the middle), as that would be a sturdier design. Sometimes he has a hard time getting it on and off, as the fleece liner inside gets bunched up a bit. I would recommend two straps inside to hold the fleece liner in place (not just one). We thought the outer shell had a bungee to tighten it around his hips, but we don't think it has one. Overall, he is very happy with the jacket and he gets a lot of compliments on how nice looking it is. December 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket Great jacket. Quality construction. Very warm. Fits well. December 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by bugaboo jacket I purchased this product to stay warm and dry this winter in Cleveland OH. The jacket seems very well constructed and seems to do as advertised. I haven't had a chance to test it in a real soaker. The liner tend to extend out from the end of the sleeve which is no big deal. I think they could improve this by adding a double zipper (both directions) and lining the hood (it is not lined now). I am happy with my purchase December 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugaboo jacket I purchased this for my husband because his job has him outside a lot. He absolutely loves it and said he wished he would have had it a long time ago!!!! A very warm jacket! December 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My first Columbia jacket I needed a winter coat after moving back to the Midwest from Phoenix. Columbia was one of the 3 brands I thought of when researching. The price was right, the features are handy, and I haven't been cold in it yet. At around 3 lbs it is the best coat I own. December 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Omni Reflective Heat Works At Dicks Sporting Goods tried on the Bugaboo jacket and left the jacket on as I shopped the jacket area. After a few minutes, took the jacket off and I felt the heat liner and to my suprise the omni fabric not only retained the heat, reflected the body heat back to my fingers. - Water proof and warm. November 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Jacket This jacket is great for those cold, snowy days. I love the interchange function as it allows the jacket to vary along with the various temperatures. Jacket is obviously well made, holds up great over many uses. Another fantastic Columbia product! November 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for the price! I bought the Interchange jacket about a month ago and have worn it several times a week since then. So far, I don't have any complaints. Some people have mentioned the need for an insulated hood, but personally I have always found hats more effective anyway. My interchange is the Collegiate Navy with the liner being a lighter shade of blue. The switch from just the liner to the complete system is quick and easy. Wearing just the liner has also been a huge benefit. It fits well and the omni-heat technology really keeps you warm inside. I read a different review regarding the color of the branding; for the navy the lettering is light grey, so I think it blends well and doesn't seem brash at all. Lastly, the shell also works well on its own. Its obviously not as warm as the whole jacket together, but it really keeps out the wind especially with its high collar. One last note, there is an optional addition to the interchange system and that is the "Go To" jacket. I have gone ahead and purchased this for added warmth. Winters can get quite cold. Overall great product. November 3, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great Jacket Just a couple things I wish were different: #1 -- The branding on the chest and sleeve. The color is such a contrast makes it more like a billboard than a logo. The thread should be a closer match to the background. #2 -- Wish you could choose the color of the liner separate from the shell. Would much prefer the Graphite shell with the liner that comes with the Black one -- really don't like the light grey color when wearing just the liner :-( That said, the Omni-Heat reflective inner material is amazing, feels like an externally powered thermal blanket to me. Much appreciated when the temperature is 40 or below, however, expect to sweat a lot when the temperature is higher than that. October 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dang, I guess I need to buy another one. I am not sure exactly how old my Columbia Bugaboo jacket is (somewhere in the range of 16 to 18 years), but I think it is probably time to replace it. Biggest reason is three small holes from campfire sparks and the outer shell is no longer waterproof. Thats it. After almost 18 years of serving me well, from working in the Gulf of Mexico in the winter, to search and rescue, fishing, camping, hiking, skiing, and everyday wear when it is cold this jacket has served me well. Unless you knew the style changes throughout the Bugaboo history I seriously doubt you could look at this jacket and tell how old it is. I did not baby, pamper, or even take all that great of care of my jacket, and it still performed flawlessly. If it wasn't for the waterproofing being worn out and I am very unsure of how to fix that, I would not consider buying another. Don't get me wrong, I am not getting rid of my current Bugaboo, I will continue to use it for anything but wet weather. I only hope my next Bugaboo, works as well and lasts just as long. My jacket is one of the reasons I continue to buy Columbia, and will continue to do so until my trust in the product is broken, (which hasn't happened yet). October 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall great product! Great coat but hood is not insulated. I would recommend this. October 9, 2014
