Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this coat! This is the best coat I have ever purchased! It keeps me warm and protected from the wind. I love the detachable hood for the rain in the Pacific North West! January 15, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love it! I asked for this for Christmas for a new Snowboarding Jacket. I like to snowboard in spring so the weight of this jacket will be perfect. I usually wear a small in Columbia jackets but the reviews said this jacket ran small, so I got a medium and it's perfect. (I'm 5'3/132lbs)... The features of this jacket are great for mountain sports (pocket for goggles/eyewear, zipper pockets etc)... I can't wait to wear it - it's so comfortable and will be great for active wear. I only rated the function a 4/5 b/c I have yet to wear it on the mountain but I anticipate it being perfect. I've worn it outside here at 30 degree temperatures and been warm so I think snowboarding in it with layers should be warm enough too. January 2, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this Jacket! I love this product! Fits great, isn't to puffy and awkward. Is so warm! The Omni Heat feature really makes a difference. I have been wearing this jacket for just about everything! December 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Jacket This jacket kept me warm through the subzero weather last weekend. Love that it's wind proof. Also like all the zippered pockets, and it looks sharp. December 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very warm and comfortable Love this jacket so far, have not worn it in the snow yet but from the omni heat tech I can tell it will keep me warm. I ordered the red it is definitely not red it's more of a coral color. Overall loving my new jacket:) December 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits great Finding the right size took me awhile. I am 5'2", 108 lbs. the sizing put me between XS for the bust and hips but my waist size in Small. I got the Small and it fits great. I can layer a pack able down vest and polar tech jacket under it without tightness. The jacket kept me warm in 30 degree weather. The detachable and adjustable hood helped keep the cold off my head. There is one large mesh pocket inside and a small one with a zipper at the inside flap. I would have liked another large pocket inside. Haven't worn this while snowing yet but I think it will be great for hiking and skiing. December 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It! I bought this for a trip to Colorado next month. However Wisconsin has gotten seriously cold wind chills the last couple days. This jacket is amazing. It is warm fits great and is definitely waterproof. I love my purchase and will buy this jacket again I'm hoping this one lasts a long time. December 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING I've had this jacket for over a year now, 2 winters! By far the best jacket I have ever bought! I love the extra pockets and it really does keep me warm! Even in below zero temperatures!! It's not super bulky and overall a great winter jacket. December 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by casual ski trip Pro:my first ski trip at Colorado at keystone mountain. The jacket is prefect. It keep me dry any warm with three layer system clothes (base, middle layer and this jacket) high quality jacket. comfortable to wear, Con:one down side is that I have smith helmet (Gage version) the hood cannot really go over that helmet. I try to put the hood over the helmet,jacket became very uncomfortable to wear at that point, cannot zip up the jacket after the hood go over the helmet. Columbia need a bigger hood. conclusion : Columbia need to make a bigger hood to support the helmet in market better. December 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect!!!! This jacket is on the thing side but the Omni shield takes care of that!!! If it's super cold I just throw a sweatshirt on with it!!! I absolutely love this jacket!!! December 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by New coat I love the color and it's so warm. December 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great features This jacket would be perfect if it was a little warmer, had vents and the skirt buttons were actually tight. Loose skirt buttons don't do much good when you're trying not to get snow in your pants. :( December 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent in every way This jacket was purchased in the medium light mossy color for my 13-year-old daughter, and we both loved it so much that I went back and purchased the large charcoal / black color for myself. The thumb holes are a favorite feature, as well as the two inside pockets. It is a warm, stylish jacket that we will both enjoy for years to come. When taking it off and people notice the silver omni-heat lining inside, they stop to ask what it is and where they can get a jacket like it! Highly, highly recommend! December 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice jacket! Jacket was for my 10 year old daughter who,is normally a women's small but the medium fit nice will allow sweaters underneath. Not bulky but warm equals happy daughter and mom! December 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm This jacket is warm, and comfortable. I usually dislike winter jackets because they are so bulky, but I feel like I can move in this jacket! True to size. The extra pockets are a nice addition as well. December 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied Customer Definitely a great coat for this Chicago weather. December 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! This jacket is perfect for outdoors activities in the winter and for everyday. I love it. It keeps me warm and fits great :) December 4, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Alpine jacket Was so excited when the jacket came but was very disappointed when it didn't fit. November 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Through the grocery store & sledding adventures! This jacket is perfect for all winter activities! From grocery hauls to sledding with the kids you'll be warm and able to function! It also has multiple zipped pockets. I am very happy with my purchase and know this jacket will be awesome for the off season and even during the season when it's chilly! November 7, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by not good for extreme weather This is a nice kick around town coat but not for extreme temperatures due to the omni tech lining. review is more for the omni technology. I am a dog musher and winter camper. I am outside daily and in extremely cold temperatures. I purchased omni wear for warmth and found that it works as long as you are wearing it. if the garment is removed and exposed to coldtemperatures the omni lining becomes extremely cold and is counter productive and causes chilling if you put the garmet back on. October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing coat!!!! Im 5'1'' 104lbs ordered size small ( usually Im xs) and the size is perfact!!!! very light weight! Very comfortable! just LOVE it!! September 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I just love it! Light weight, very comfortable. Perfect insulation and waterproof. I used it for hours in the snow: playing and skiing. Never got cold or wet. Smaller than the other ones I have for travel. August 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING!! This jacket is perfect!!! July 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Size Up at least one size This jacket is warm (no, HOT, actually!) and very stylish. Definitely a great purchase. I purchased an XL and am pretty much a TTS XL, but this jacket (and almost all Columbia jackets, actually) runs a size small. I would need an XXL in order to wear this coat, and would probably be better off with a 3XL if I wanted to wear a sweater under this coat. Buy this coat, but size up at least one size. Note to Columbia - please offer your jackets in 2XL, 3XL sizes. June 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product I live in Southern Ontario, Canada, this is warm enough for our winter, good product! May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket I bought this for my wife. She does not like being cold. This jacket kept her warm skiing in cold, foggy and windy weather. It was 10-15F. It fits comfortably. Not bulky! The sleeve has a nice pocket for RFID pass cards. Sleeves are nice with the thumb slit. She is 5'2" 115 February 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome product Perfect for skiing or cold weather in general. I was warm all day. February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Favorite Jacket! I've worn this jacket in below zero degree weather and it has kept me warm. I am usually a small on top, but I ordered a Medium after reading reviews and it fit me perfectly. This is the best jacket I have ever owned and I definitely recommend purchasing it. It has a ton of pockets and it keeps me so warm! Love, love, love it !!!! February 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by elbows small I am 5ft5in 130lbs. I returned the medium sized jacket. I was love with this jacket!! The body fit nicely, but the arms of the jacket was way too small, especially in the elbows. it was not a jacket you could layer. Im sure it will fit somebody, their sizing is a bit off. I am normally a size small. February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality and function Great for outdoor snow activities...lightweight and warm. Wore it in 4F weather...not warm enough for just walking, but good for skiing/boarding February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for DC Metro Area Winter I ordered this jacket after our last blizzard to make sure I was well equipped if mother nature decided to throw us another. It keeps my upper body nice and warm and I love that the pockets are lined/insulated. I'm 5'3 135 lbs and the medium fit perfectly (enough room for bulky sweaters underneath). If you're looking for a jacket to keep you warm in <21° temps, this is the one. February 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket, but... I bought this jacket a few months ago and initially loved the jacket. I frequently buy products from Columbia and am typically very satisfied. Everything about this jacket seemed great: very warm, not too heavy, stylish, etc.. After only wearing the jacket about 10 days, the zipper broke and i'm no longer able to zip the jacket at all :( January 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by satisfied customer One minor note: When zipping up the coat my wife has trouble getting the zipper started. January 25, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by bulky, too small this may be a great coat for someone with a smaller bust, but for me- size med, but a 34DDD- this coat is terrible. it makes me feel super bulky, theres no range in motion, and i cant layer under it. the worst is if i sit, by lower back is exposed. it sat a my natural waist, which made me feel even more top heavy. like i said, if you have a small bust, this coat may work for you, but as someone with big breasts, this is not the coat you are looking for. January 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket This is a great jacket. Not intended for temps below 35*, unless you have room for a sweater or sweat jacket underneath. At first was a little stiff, but with use loosened up. January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ski jacket bought this coat for my daughter. fits her beautifully and is very warm. another great Columbia product. January 4, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great! This is exactly what I was looking for, a little thicker than I expected, but it was actually perfect once I got used to it. My only mark down is the hand/thumb holes are a bit rough and not the most comfortable to wear if stretching out at all. January 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great but the color is NOT accurate. I ordered this for my daughter because she wanted a red jacket. The Ruby Red color is a dark pink. It is NOT red. Although it is great quality, I am returning it because it isn't what I thought I was ordering. December 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very warm coat! Coat runs a little small. I can still get a sweatshirt on underneath it but it's a little more snug than I would like. The coat has been very warm so far. Living in MN I wanted a warm coat. I got the ruby red color coat and it is more of a pink color. Not exactly want I was hoping for but it will work. December 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall an awesome jacket I bought this jacket to use for snowboarding but completely fell in love with it and use it as much as possible. It keeps you super warm and is incredibly light weight. It allows for plenty of movement. The only problem I have had with it so far is that when I completely zip it up its a little uncomfortable on the neck. Overall definitively worth it. I love it! December 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it This is my first jacket from Columbia and I am so glad I bought it. It truly does keep you warm and free of water. It is also very comfortable, I wear it around the house as a blanket! December 18, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Alpine Action Omni heat may be warm if you are moving, but it isn't when you are standing still. I had also ordered the 650 turbo heat jacket and returned it as I thought the wind would blow up the bottom. Living in Minnesota I want a warm coat as I am a freeze baby. My 20 year old Columbia is warmer than this. Think I'll go back to a big down jacket. The fit is nice so am keeping for a fall coat. December 18, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too small. Usually wear a large and read reviews about jacket running small so I ordered an X-large which was entirely too tight, so I returned this jacket which of course is an additional expense. December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Coat Perfect for the cold. Couldn't ask for more. December 16, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ruby red is not red, its pink I like it anyway but I was expecting another colour and its clearly not red. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'M FINALLY WARM I have been searching for a winter jacket that would actually keep me warm in the winter with no luck. Finally, I found this wonderful jacket! The Omni heat is awesome and really works! Absolutely love this jacket! If you have long arms like me, go with a size bigger than you would normally wear and the sleeves fit perfect. December 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great looking jacket but runs small in chest My daughter loves the coat, but it is a tad small in the chest area. She is only 13 with an average sized chest, but I would have liked the coat to be a tad bigger. If I would have ordered a size larger, I think it would have been huge. December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 stars I've always loved Columbia products and this jacket certainly does not disappoint me! It's true to size, keeps me really warm, and water resistant. One reminder I'll give is that please get a size bigger than your normal size. I'm 5' 1" and 112 lb. I got XS - it fits me really well and looks stylish. But the thing is during winter I wear more layers than usual. When I have more layers, its a little tight. I should've thought of it when I bought it. But it looks really stylish when it fits you perfectly. So its kind of a dillema. December 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Satisfied Bought this Jacket to replace a jacket I had for 8 years, I am satisfied with my purchase. It keeps me warm, so far. We haven't had cold enough temps here to really test it out. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket! When I received this coat I was a little nervous about how warm it would be because it is so thin, but I can tell you that the Omni Heat works great! I took my pup on a hike in the upper 30s with only a short sleeved tee shirt under my coat and I was perfectly warm. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs and ordered the small. It fits great, and I still have plenty of enough room to wear a sweatshirt underneath for when it gets really cold. I'm totally happy with this jacket and can't wait to wear it all winter long!
