Rated 5 out of 5 by Different and mostly good I bought this largely because it folds into its own pocket, compact and light weight. It was intended to be a lightweight jacket to keep handy in the car. It has become more than I wear it often. Drinking coffee with with this thing zipped up, using my seat heater, or a moderate hike causes me to over heat quickly. The non omni heat version would have fit my needs better but this thing is versatile and warm for its weight. I like it, February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by light and warm Bought this jacket thinking it would be good for cool days but works for the colder days. if worn with a light fleece under will be more than enough for snowy winter chills. February 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sleeves Way Too Big I really wanted to like this jacket. The Compactor Down Jacket is light, warm, and functional. The Omni-Heat Thermal liner is innovative and cool looking. My biggest gripe? The ultra-big and super-wide sleeves were a bit over the top. I like my down jackets to be sleek and 'just big enough'. Every time I wore the Compactor jacket, I felt like the Michelin Man - and therefore had to return it. Nevertheless, I'm still a Columbia fan ... January 29, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too big I am 6'3" 180 lbs so I ordered a large. The sleeves fit tight and the body was way too large. I was swimming inside the jacket. The Jacket would have been moving all over when doing active sports and too much material when walking and sitting. not a good design. But the quality is solid. I will return and look to another style in a medium for a better fit. January 17, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Zipper Broke My zipper broke after less than a month of light use. November 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So light weight and warm Very happy , looks great , very light weight packs easily into it's own pocket , everything I was looking for . June 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by size I normally wear a large which is what I ordered and it fit like an xl. I then ordered a medium and I'm keeping it but it fits tight. I would not buy this online . Go to a store to get the right fit March 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm, functional and looks gret My wife purchased this jacket as a gift. Initially I was concerned that it would not be functional, as it felt very thin. However, I find the jacket indeed keeps me warm, and it is now one of my favorites. February 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket has kept us warm during 0 degree days. stops the wind pretty effectively. very comfortable to wear. February 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket The jacket performs well in Colorado winter. 100% down in the jacket do wonders. Unlike synthetic materials the jacket breathes very well and keeps my body at constant temp at all times. The jacket is light and very comfortable to wear.. Got the jacket for half off from Columbia online sale. Do check the site for good deals. Highly recommended. February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compactor Down Jacket Excellent product, true to size (5'10, 230, XL) and functions great as a mid layer jacket. I live, hunt and ski in Northeast, Temps have been in single digits to negative degrees this jacket works great on and off slopes or in woods. Highly recommended! February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and lightweight Wonderful coat; very lightweight and definitely warm. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmth on the go! This is a great jacket. Lightweight and extremely packable. Zips into one of the jacket pockets and can then double as a neck pillow in your car or on a plane. Wouldn't be my go to jacket in weather below 20 degrees, but for temps in the mid 30s to low 50s this jacket fits the bill. February 12, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not for me Jacket felt Too thin .cheap for a ski type jacket Lacks the feel of down Returned jacket after first try on February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Its the best The down jacket is extremely light weight and warm! Other down jackets let the wind blow through. This one does not. It packs down incredibly small. We need some precipitation here to see how it performs in the rain. Love it! February 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket Love this jacket. Compresses into the pocket for easy carry. Very warm! I'm 5'9 220 and a large fits great. So the sizes run big. December 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great compact down jacket for a giant. First off the original jacket I ordered was a medium. I have always ordered between medium to large depending on the company and style of jacket. After receiving the jacket it was huge. Maybe even big for a large size. After calling Columbia they sent me out a new one so I can send back the smaller size. I am now wearing the small and it fits great, very lightweight, and decently warm. This jacket is not going to be your 30 degree go to jacket but maybe throw under your rain jacket or a colder 45 degree day no problem. It is extremely lightweight and even packs into its own pocket for storing. My only other gripe with the jacket is I think its about an inch too long, maybe just my preference. December 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Climbing Kilimanjaro Oct 2014 My wife and I have just returned a few weeks ago from climbing Kilimanjaro. It was supposed to be the dry season, but on Day 2 it started snowing and raining almost constantly for the next few days. I had a Omni Heat puffy which I wore almost every awaken hours for most of our trip. The fit was perfect, and the lightness made it so easy to wear. You don't feel you are wearing a jacket at all. (As a side note, we also had sleeping bag liners with Omni-heat coating, and they also made a big difference in comfort) Your products made a HUGE difference in making our trip awesome - staying dry and warm while most were miserable around us. We summited without a hitch. Please keep up the great work! Love your products. October 16, 2014
