Fantastic 'light' Jacket
This is a really great light jacket. It fit me great, very comfortable, and blocks wind. I have not used this jacket in the rain yet. I would not recommend this jacket for extreme cold weather though.
The only thing I am disappointed with is the pockets, like others have said. If you have the pockets open, you will lose body heat because of their mesh design.

onw of the best jackets i have ever owned
I bought this Jacket for cycling in cold weather since i commute everyday by bike.
i first wore this jacket on a really windy day with the temp some where between 20 and 15 degrees and it kept me warm but not sweaty (i was also wearing an underarmor base layer and a very light fleece) the contoured cuffs were perfect for when i was in a riding position and didn't leave and annoying gap between the glove and cuff where cold air could get in and the extra length on the back kept my bum covered. i rode about 20 miles and still didn't feel like i was over heating or sweaty. so far i am extremely pleased with this jacket the only thing is i wish the mesh in the pockets was a little heavier but i understand they are supposed to be vents or than that this jacket is perfect.

Coat is very light but yet warm with its reflective lining. Have yet to be in inclement weather so cannot comment on waterproofing capabilities. Advertised as true to size but I find it running a bit smaller than true. Would love if it had more pockets especially on the inside. All in all, would still recommend.

No shoulder room
Way too tight thru shoulders and arms, big in body, could be a smidge longer

Ok But not Great
I bought this product to withstand this winter. but the hands are not have proper insulation and this is not standing good against cold. they say omni heat or omni etc. technology but when i wear this jacket and walk in the winter even about -2 or -3 i feel the chill inside. not very much happy with this product.

Don't Believe the Hype
Bottom line....this is a nice 'light' jacket....I mean it's Columbia right? But, don't expect this thing to keep you warm as the temp drops. This is truly a fancy wind breaker, with very little insulation. I figure if you are out running a marathon and already generating a lot of internal heat, maybe this jacket would sort of keep you warm, but I wouldn't want to be caught in a blizzard with this jacket being the only thing between me and the elements. So, in conclusion...if all your worried about is looking good and stylish then you're good to go, if you are worried about staying warm in temps below 35 degrees F (no matter what you're doing)....then you better hope you have some extra clothes to put on under this jacket.

Great coat, slightly expensive for what it gives you.
Based on the previous review, I decided to order a size smaller to see how it fit. I'm 5'10" 150lbs and usually buy medium clothing. I went with a small and it fits exceptionally well. A bit tight around the armpits if anything while wearing thick multiple shirt layers underneath. This coat is very light for the amount of protection it gives you. It's doing well for the (Oregon) fall so far but I'm strongly predicting it won't hold up during winter if you do not own a set of underarmor base layers. So as far as the Triteca 2's flaws, the previous review was also correct about the jacket only having stretch material mesh lining for pockets. So most the tech in the coat is being rendered useless if you keep the pockets open. Especially during windy days because a lot of the trapped heat easily escapes. So if you like to walk with your hands in your pockets a lot, you may want to use your pants or buy some fly gloves. Although I must admit the pockets are pretty good sized. Just slightly odd angle. Also make sure the armpit zippers and bottom skirt are synched tight for full protection.
Bottom line: I would say it's slightly over-priced. But for the technology in this along with the solid brand you can't go wrong, if you have the $.

Its all the Columbia technology in one jacket.
This is one sweet jacket.
Its been raining everyday in Portland this last week. I decided to buy a jacket that will allow me to go outdoors.
This jacket has a great over-sized comfortable hood. The zipper is lined with a polymer to keep water out. The blue with the red highlighted zippers is stylish enough. Omni heat works and if I start to broil, there are zippers under the arms that allow heat to escape. The material is water resistant, wind resistance. I have a 42 chest and a 31 waist so I can wear a large or medium. The medium fits me better than the large and unzipped still keeps me warm.
One area of improvement are the pockets. It does not have cozy fuzzy warm pockets. There is just mesh for the hands. Maybe next year, they will take care of this.
