Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacket is light and warm! Purchased this jacket as an everyday winter option. Great choice as it is light, flexible, breathable and warm. I made the mistake of wearing it one day in warmer temperatures when I should have chosen just a sweatshirt. The jacket was too warm and I had to take it off. The fit is true and I like the longer waist on it. Also has all of the snow sport options like a snow skirt, zipper vents on armpits, loops in pockets for tethering keys and such, and detachable hood. No regrets here. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeping the Coach Warm! As a high school spring tennis coach, this jacket is the key to braving New England weather when having to be outside! It keeps me warm and prevents the cold breezes from penetrating my body. Comfortable and warm...you bet! This one is LOVE! March 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great coat but limited pockets I wanted a lined coat instead of a shell for skiing in the very cold weather. This coat is very warm which met my expectations but the pockets are a little lacking. The top pockets are smaller than other coats for wallets, glasses, RF lift passes, trail maps, etc. March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Ski Jacket Just took this in weather ranging from 15 degrees to 31 degrees with wind and without for a couple days of skiing. Pit zips were needed as this coat was very warm! I wear and extra large typically but had to get a large in this coat as it runs a little bigger than true size. Excellent wind and sleet protection. I was sweltering after a few hours running the diamonds. Great buy, would highly recommend. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Like It I've had it for a few months now and I have been happy with the coat. It keeps me warm down to the high teens, but I actually prefer a different coat when it is below that because of the hood which isn't very thick. With everything considered, I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat Once again Columbia produced a quality product. The fit and feel of the coat was great. I wore the coat in -20 degree weather and felt very comfortable. January 14, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disapointment Two years ago I purchased the older version of this jacket. I do not use it for any athletic activities at all, its a town coat. I returned the first jacket as the underarm zippers leaked, only to find out that it is a design flaw only to be fixed with some silicon. The next issue was a seam opened up near the waist. I called the store about having it repaired at my cost only to be told to take it to a seamstress which I did. apparently Columbia does not want to service its products. Now the stiffening wire for the hood has come apart, exposing a sharp end. I'm not sure how I'm going to repair that. On a good note it is very warm. November 26, 2013
