Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sizing I selected runs a little small because it is a little shorter than I like. I am 6'2'' though so the tall option probably would have been better. Very happy with the jacket overall. March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by over all review I love this 3 in 1 jacket it fits good and im 150 ish and i chose extra large and it is big and the stomach area and the to front pockets can fit a tablet if disire i put this on today and i felt cold after having it on for 1 minute amazing but main coat texture is diffrent from what i thought it was going to be. and i also lift so in the arm area it good just a tad of restriction if you try to cross your arms and when you have the coat on its hard to look down but over all it very good i would recommend it to any big guy or tall people its just great January 7, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very Warm Raincoat This coat is very good but needs some changes to make it better - inserts for pockets and room for a second liner - the softshell with a hood is the perfect addition - to a perfect coat. December 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is my third. I bought my first in Oregon because the Omni-heat reflective liner looked like it might actually work. The coat was so comfortable and looked so good one of my sons decided he wanted it and took it to college. Another of my sons was disappointed he couldn't do the same. So online I bought a coat for him, and one for me. I thought about buying a spare in case another of my sons spots it. I normally buy a medium but the large size coat fits me perfectly. For the warmth it does not have bulk, and the liner zips out. I consider it my all time favorite coat, and I have bought and worn many including down vests and parkas. April 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by why did I wait? I am a fishing guide and have been looking at these jackets for a numbers of years, and finally purchased one. I can not believe how great the coat is. It is 100% water proof, wind proof, and keeps me at jut the right temperature. Super coat... April 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice weatherproof jacket This is a very useful 3 in 1 jacket. Especially good in rainy conditions. Not as warm as I thought it would be. Omni-Heat inner layer seems to work much better when you are more active and generating more body heat. If you are outside in sub zero Temps waiting for a bus go for a down jacket. March 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Jacket I bought this jacket as a compact yet warm jacket for the cold winter months in New England. The jacket served its purchase very well with great insulation and pockets. Only complaints are the color is more of a dark grey than black, the pockets serve no warming purpose, and the inner jacket fastners broke with the first month (the glue came loose). March 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Quality But Beware of Sizing Upon receiving my Northwest Traveler Interchange jacket, I immediately tried it on for sizing. It was a good thing I ordered a full size larger than what I normally wear. Unfortunately, the sizing for this type of jacket (interchange) is much smaller than the labeled sizing. As for the quality of the product, I would have to admit that I was really surprised at the warmth this jacket provides for the weight of the jacket. The Omni-Heat Reflective Microtex Light combined with the 100% polyester microtemp XF 11, 60g insulation of the liner jacket provides a warm comfortable total combination jacket without the bulkiness that other types of jackets that provide the same level of warmth. I will recommend this product to my family and friends that are looking for a light weight warm jacket that allows for an active lifestyle. February 27, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by this is not a winter jacket Jacket is to thin to use in Minnesota area February 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost Perfect If I were the designer, I would have built in a way to keep the hood tucked away when not needed. Other than that, a great jacket at a great price. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by NYC JACKET 4 SURE This is EXACTLY what I was looking for: quality, style, price = 3 in 1 to me. The versatility of different liners that Columbia offers is another plus. I can wear this jacket in 3 of 4 seasons in NYC. (Summer to hot) I would absolutely recommend this jacket. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Winter Jacket This is by far the best jacket I've owned. The jacket is well worth the price you pay and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for anything they can use year round. The omniheat inner layer is almost too effective, in a good way. Anyways, but this jacket. You won't regret it February 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what you'd think This jacket is awesome it terms of it's pockets. It's also very stylish, extremely comfortable, pretty light, and all around great. This is, of course, aside from its main function, keeping me warm. For the price of this jacket, I would expect it to be much warmer than it is. I can't wear a t shirt and just this jacket in ~20 degree weather while walking to class (college student) because I get too cold. If i wear a thin pull over and this jacket, it's the warmest thing in the world. The jacket looks great but the warmth is an issue for me, I thought it would be better. I am keeping it, just because I can easily put a pullover on under it and then it becomes very comfortable. For sizing inquiries, I am 5' 11" , 170lbs, athletic build, and a large coat is pretty large, I will be returning it for a medium. February 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very pleased with fit and finish I really like the fit and the features of the Traveler jacket. I tried on many different models before deciding on this one. My only complaint is that while the medium fits perfectly, the sleeves are a bit short. I have not experienced this on other jackets that I own, so I have to assume that this may be unique to this jacket. Very warm, blocks wind well. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the purchase. February 8, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fit was not as advised by guid I am 5'7" 170 lbs. with a 41" chest, 33 waist & 19" from armpit to wrist. I used the size & fit guide, however it was not even close. The coat was tight in the back & chest (Only wearing a t-shirt). When my arms were raised above my head bottom of the coat was well above my waist line and the arms were 1"-2" short of my wrists. Needed the Coat for a Ski trip & had to buy something from a local ski shop. Returned for refund February 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great overall jacket I really like this jacket! I feel very stylish in it and have received some nice compliments. It is important to note that the jacket feels pretty light which is not necessarily bad. So far it has kept me warm and very dry in the low 30s/rainy days with just a shirt/long sleeve underneath. The only con I feel are the pockets for the outside shell. Though they are very spacious, the inside material of the pockets makes them not so warm. They feel like the outside of a leather jacket in the cold and I would recommend getting some light gloves at the very least to keep your hands warm when the cold winds come in. The inner jacket's pockets are warm and would have liked to have the same type of material for the others but oh well. Other than that this jacket is great! December 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beware of the color I bought a Navy color and when I received it, I was surprised to find out it actually has two colors: top half is black and lower half is navy. This does not show clearly on the photo online. Anyone who want to buy it should be aware. Also, it is very thin, almost like an one-layer jacket. I bought Columbia 3-in-1 years ago and it was thick then. Not in coldest weather yet to test its warmth. Besides these, the quality of the jacket is very good. November 25, 2014
