Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Comfortable warm and dry. Was my primary coat on a trip to iceland with a lot of 30-40* weather with lots of rain and i was very and dry. My only complaint is how the fleece sleeves attach to the shell sleeve. It is only a single bottun and when I pull my arm out the fleece sleeve tend to come out of the shell sleeve but that is minor and i just have to remember to grab the shell and fleece sleeve at the same time September 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent value This is a very nice jacket at the sale price I paid, but it lacks some of the features (pit zips, powder skirt) of more expensive (Titanium) jackets. I was disappointed that I felt cold skiing in the mid-20's without a vest under the two layers. It doesn't seem as warm as I expected. I would still buy it again and plan to get another one in a different color. August 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket but The sleeves of the lining appeared to be too tight even tho my arms aren't muscular. May 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Columbia Quality Great winter coat. Top notch value for your money. Has all the features you look for in a Columbia jacket. Runs true to size. Comfortable, even in the arms. Rain repellent. April 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality Construction We were looking for a year round coat system for the new guy when we stumbled across this coat. It's lightweight and yet flexible and warm. It's durable and the is of quality construction. The only down side is the fleece liner is not black, it's grey. April 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I personally had never owned a Columbia jacket before, but it's the only brand my kids and grandkids but. So I surprised my hubby with one. He loves it. Thank you, Michelle March 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket With the liner in, the Bugaboo™ Interchange Jacket is warmer than I'll ever need here in San Francisco. It'll be great for traveling to the Sierra and the East Coast in winter. My only complaint--and it's a minor one--is that the sleeves are a little too long. I'm 6 feet tall, 180 pounds and on the medium jacket the sleeves extend a bit far onto my hands. The cuffs can be tightened with velcro, but they still hang a bit low. The body of the jacket fits fine, so I hesitated to say it runs big. But there's no two ways about the sleeves. I really like the Surplus Green/Graphite color. With the liner in the shell completely blocks the wind. I've walked through some wet, windy weather in this jacket and felt nothing but warm and snug. March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat Bought this to replace my husbands old Columbia coat. We like this one b/c of the versatility of the solid black color we chose, it can be dressed up or use for everyday. Always love your products! Couldn't beat the price either. March 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits true to size I usually wear size Large but I ordered an XL thinking it ran small, but once it came in I tried it on and realized it was too big. I sent it back and reordered a Large, the Large fit perfectly. I would say this jacket is true to your normal size. Returning it was super easy also, they received it in 2 days and reimbursed me a few days later. Jacket it very nice for rain, really cold weather, and even if it's a little bit chilly. Great customer service and product, I would recommend this. March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Nice Jacket Great jacket. Kept me warm and dry during a hiking trip in the Utah mountains. Great quality and plenty of room to keep you comfortable with your pack on. February 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality and fits well Quality is okay and also it makes you warm while you are walking. It is good for trekking though. I would reccomend for it but not for high season of winter. February 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly What I Hoped For This is my first Columbia coat and I am very happy with it. I usually wear XL or 2XL, so I was a bit apprehensive on size after looking at the reviews here saying that it fit slightly small, but I got the XL anyway. Perfect fit, a 2XL would have been way too big. It's definitely waterproof and is very warm. I love the fact that you can remove the inner lining if it's not too cold out and it still looks great. If I had to pick one negative, it would be that the sleeves are a little long (I'm only 5'10"), but that is easily fixed with the adjustable cuffs. Getting it on sale only made it better. Very happy with my purchase. February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat! Love the coat! The bottom draw string is not my favorite design, but overall...2 thumbs up!! February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So good I have 2 I purchased this coat last winter and loved it so much I purchased a second one this winter. Very warm, withstands harsh temperature and winds. I wore only a polo in minus degree temps and was very warm. The only gripe I have is my shirt sleeves get caught to the reflective material when puttin on the coat causing them to ride up. February 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Future Investment I bought this for my son who is 12. Of course it is a little big but he will be wearing it next year. February 17, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointing The velcro on the shell that runs down the length of the jacket has become frayed and separated from the shell. The jacket itself doesnt seem or feel cheap. so maybe it was a quality control issue. If this were after a couple of years of use, I would understand. but I purchased the jacket at the beginning of December. February 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket This jacket is awesome. Keeps you warm and toasty. February 6, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Warmth I bought this jacket hoping to get rid of a big bulky parka for packing purposes. It indeed fits the bill for packing, however it is not as warm as the parka, which is insulated with thinsulate. I guess if you wear enough base layers it will do, but don't expect good insulation from really cold and windy weather. And, the hood has absolutely no protection at all. February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Bugaboo Jacket Great jacket for travel to wet and colder places on same trip. Can remove fleece liner and use as a rain shell and wear fleece on colder dry nights. And when it is cold put it all together to keep dry and warm. I would have liked to see a zippered pocketg in the outside front chest area as on the Alpine. There is one on the inside but can't get to it with the fleece liner in. February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by bugaboo jacket It is a nice jacket, it looks good and fits good. February 5, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by mens bugaboo jacket I currently have a Columbia winter jacket very similar to the bugaboo but I wanted a red one. I placed the order in the same size as my first jacket regretfully it is much smaller than my present jacket. I have not returned the new in hopes it will be offered in 2xl so I can exchange it. It has been weeks so I probably will return it very soon.XL February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Live up to expectations. With some layerings, this jacket serves its purpose. Its keeps me warm and the being waterproof and windproof allow me to exhibit freedom to do the activities without worries January 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous All-Purpose Jacket I'm a woman, but prefer the fit of the men's jackets. This jacket is roomy, has 3 layers which I put to the test yesterday. It was pretty cold and I wore all 3 layers and was toasty warm. I've worn it also without the inside fleece layer and was comfortable in 40-50 degree temps. It is also water-proof which in Oregon is much needed. I love that the hood can be adjusted so it stays above the eyes and fits the head better. My other jacket doesn't have that and I rarely wear it in the rain for that reason. I highly recommend this all-weather all-purpose jacket. January 31, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Functional Disappointment Absolutely love the color, ordered gloves and hat to match in separate order. Two points: Most important is liner problem, which is most annoying. The coat can't be removed without liner snagging clothing under it, binding up, and making very embarrassing to remove. Sleeves have to be peeled off. Product isn't as warm as presented. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Jacket! This jacket is fantastic! The outside shell is truly waterproof, the water just beads off. The fleece interior has the omni-heat material and keeps me very warm by itself in very cold, windy weather. Both pieces are easily worn separately and together and are connected by metal snap pieces which make it easy to put together and take apart. Living in the PNW it rains nearly everyday in the winter and this jacket has proven its worth! I normally wear larges and this jacket fits me fine in a Large. I had ordered an extra-large at first after reading previous reviews and found that was WAY too big. I am 5'10" and about 210 lbs - the large fits me perfect. January 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat! My husband can't wait to hit the slopes! January 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite jacket! This is my go to jacket when it's cold and rainy....or just really cold. I love the ability to swap out the liner with other ones. I also have the columbia mighty lite jacket that zips into this one as well. Nice and warm combo. This jacket is very durable and comfortable. You can tell from the quality that it will last a very long time. I'm 5'8" and 160lbs. I bought the small and it fits very well. If anything it's a little large, but it keeps me warm, dry, and looks good in the process. Love the hyper blue color! January 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Surprised with the weight and Amazed with the performance I used much heavier jackets in the past and was expecting this jacket to be of the same. When I received this product I was surprised and worried that did, I am going to be frozen with this product, however, I was amazed with the lightweight performance jacket that I bought. The size was perfect, light, able to withstand the wind here.... I would surely recommend this product to my friends. January 7, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not What I Expected I got my "Bugaboo" coat in October 2015 and it has been a disappointment since I got it. The inner sleeve material catches on every long sleeve shirt I have worn with it. That makes putting it on and taking it off more work than it should be. The velco fasteners don't always work...but worst of all it's not that warm. I was told this would be as warm as my 20 year old Columbia Challenge Series coat which it clearly is NOT. If you want a light spring or fall coat this might be ok, but it is NOT ok for winter in Wisconsin. January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT FOR COLD WEATHER The jacket is great, i wear the thermal insert when I am a little chilly and I add the shell when it is windy and wet. It is a good all-in-one jacket. January 6, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Unsatisfied customer I specifically asked about the fit when I ordered as I am aware that sometimes sizes vary. I was told that fit was regular. The coat is fine for fall weather but when cold weather is an issue you cannot layer . The coat itself is not warm enough for winter weather. It does look very nice just too bad I can't wear it for what I bought it for. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hesistant, but Wowed I read several reviews on winter jackets that I could go skiing with on the weekends and wear to work during the week. After comparing many jackets, I selected this one. Once it came, I almost sent it back immediately. I thought, there is absolutely no way this fleece and uninsulated shell are going to keep me warm. I even went to my nearest Columbia outlet store to look for one to exchange it with. The employee at the store told me I should give the current coat a try because the Omni-Tech fleece really does work. So, I decided to give the coat a chance and if I was dissatisfied, I would return it before the 30 days were up. I am extremely glad I gave the jacket a chance. It feels like it adjusts the amount of heat it absorbs based on the outside temperature. I have worn this jacket in temperatures ranging from single digits to the mid-40s and have been comfortable at all times. I am now a believer in the omni-tech fleece. It also fits very well and looks great. As a former review stated, I also wish the collar was not quite so high, but it does help with extra warmth on the colder mornings. January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent buy! I’ve had my share of jackets, work jackets, and Interchange jackets, and this one is the best by far and my favorite at the moment. It’s not too heavy and the Omni-heat makes it warm yet not to hot that you sweat. And the best part is that you get three combinations with the sweater and a jacket in one. January 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great quality My son loves this coat he says it keeps him warm in the morning's while waiting on the school bus. January 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loves it. Purchased this as a gift for our son and he loves it. Omani-Heat is excellent and jacket is light weight and has great move ability. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just returned from the glaciers and national parks in Chile and Argentina The functionality, quality and durability of the jacket greatly exceeded my expectations during a recent 11-day trip in remote Chile and Argentina. Layers are essential for warmth, comfort and safety in that part of the world. The outer jacket is 100% waterproof. The interior fleece lining has an added/built-in warmer insert that kept me toasty warm during freezing temps and fierce Patagonian winds. The four exterior pockets were large enough for everything needed for day trekking and photography. I was also pleasantly surprised that the interior fleece lining was removable and had two zippered hand pockets of its own. My only complaint is that the outer jacket's chest pockets have two Velcro tabs each under the flaps, instead of zippers; that made it slightly challenging keeping some snow and rain out of them if the flaps weren't just right. Overall, though, the jacket is exceptional. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket for the Price I bought this jacket for my son-in-law for Christmas this year and he loved it. Very warm not to heavy and loves the color. December 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice jacket I wish I would have gone with a medium but the large has plenty of room. The zipper seems a bit weak we will see how it holds up. The jacket could use more pockets. With zippers. Seems plenty warm. December 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Runs a little large and not as warm I was unable to test this jacket in really cold conditions because I had to return it because the Fit was a bit large. I'm usually an M but this seems to be a fit for an L. In terms of warmth it doesn't seem as warm as other Columbia jackets I've purchased before. I wouldn't recommend this jacket as the warmest one. In terms of color and design it's great. It looks elegant and the black color matched perfectly with the inner grey fleece layer. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very impressive I bought this jacket a year ago. Great fit, looks good and keeps me warm on the ski hill. My only wish would be a more convenient pocket for the ski pass. December 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Second time's a charm I first ordered my Bugaboo about two months ago. When it arrived, I inspected it carefully and saw that the hangtag on the fleece had not been sewn on correctly and one side had come off of the fleece altogether. I returned the product, but was unsure if I wanted to chance the purchase of another coat from Columbia. After looking at other products again and asking other folks I knew with Columbia jackets I decided to give them another chance. The second jacket arrived in good condition. It's very comfortable -- much more so than my old L.L. Bean jacket it's replacing -- and seems as if it will do the trick at keeping me warm in the relatively mild Virginia winters we get here. These jackets fit a little small -- I tried a number of jackets on in a store first, and a medium in most other brands fit me best. The large Bugaboo worked for me; I really couldn't find much else I liked without going up significantly in price. December 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Had one before. I have always had Columbia jackets because they were always very warm and functional. As the winters here in MN get really cold mid January to mid March and I tend to work outside this jacket was hands down the choice for me. No complaints until my 7 year old Columbia Bugaboo 3 in 1 jacket ripped at the left pocket last year. I decided to wait until this October to replace it as I wouldn't need a 3 in 1 interchange winter jacket at the start of summer. I bought the jacket and knew I made a good purchase. One complaint is for there is no elastic in the cuffs on both the inside fleece and the shell. Which has the cuffs cover half of my hands. The Velcro on the shell comes in handy but not as secure as if the elastic was in the cuffs. Than one other feature missing is the outside zip upper chest pocket on the fleece coat. Other than those missing important features this jacket would be great. December 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fell in love!!!<3 As I was looking around the store for a new jacket; I spotted this gem. Tried it on, jumped around, tons of twists, flexed in every possible way, fitted great and it passed with flying colors!!! Once I had the receipt in hand, the tags were off & walked home in the bitter cold, NOT SUFFERING 1 SECOND!!! Best purchase in a longgg time!!! Also it was on sale!!!!! What a bonus!!! A++++ ladies and gentlemen!!! November 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is so comfortable to wear This jacket is one of the best things to wear in cold climates. As an amateur adventurer, I find this jacket to be of great need. As a native Californian, I am not used to the cold. The inside of the jacket is filled with a Omni-Heat™ thermal reflective liner, and the it is surrounded with Omni-Tech™ waterproof/breathable critically seam sealed, so that my skin can still breath while being warm. I used this jacket when I hiked a trail on Mount Hood, and it worked like a charm! I was neither cold nor warm, I was very comfortable! November 28, 2015
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. November 22, 2015
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 Good quality and price Very happy with the purchase, delivery is very fast. Good service. Jacket is good quality. October 19, 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
