Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Winter Coat Great winter coat, this is my first winter in Chicago and it has done me very well. I'm from Los Angeles, so I needed a hefty coat as I'm not used to the cold, and this did the job. Fit is true to size. I am 5'4 about 135-140 pounds and the medium worked well for me. Still enough room to be able to layer a relatively thick sweater when necessary. I highly commend this coat. April 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall Good This is one of the warmest coats I've ever owned for Chicago winters. Two complaints: Nothing to secure hood when wearing it. Wind gets through easily I washed it according to washing/drying instructions and the omni-heat layer smells absolutely awful. March 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Love this coat. would definitely recommend it March 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by A coat for the cold I ordered this coat wanting a warm jacket. I am 150 and 5'5" and got a medium and its bulky on me. Small may have been too tight. The red is more like a grey red verse a bright red and the fur is weird on the ends because I feel like it sticks out. I tried the coat without the fur and it looks better with the fur on. Not sure how that fur will hold up in the rain and snow. Just feel like it would be soppy and gross. As for the coat itself it's been too warm out to wear it (high 40's low 50's) so I have not been able to wear it to work. I did try it on around the house and I was warm in it so warm I had to take it off! The negative is I do not like the black fabric hand gloves attached to the coat but I see its function for blocking the wind and making a tight sleeve seal. I feel really silly wearing the coat with that function. Overall I believe it will do its function of keeping warm but I don't love the coat for the style or design. March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Definitely Buy I love this coat its my 3rd columbia coat, as usual they deliver. Its beautiful and warm,(I bought the flint grey) the first day I wore it, it was 30 degrees with 20 mph winds. I'm very cold natured and I didn't even notice the cold. I'm 5'2", 105 lbs,my measurements are 36-26-36. I ordered an xsmall this coat fits like a glove it falls about 3" below my knees. February 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice fitted jacket, but color was off I ordered the jacket online. Seems Iike a nice warm jacket with good workmanship. The only thing was the color, it wasn'to as bright as seen online. It's more like burgandy, very dark. February 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this coat!!! Love this coat !!!...fits snug ...The way I like it and is super duper warm!!! February 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love Love this coat! Bought 2 other jackets that I returned before getting this. It's the best. The only reason I say it runs a little small is because if you're busty it might be a little tight across the chest. I'm not.. which works out well for this coat :) I love the color. It's a muted red, not shiny. And it's super warm! The faux fur lining can be separated from the hood and the hood is detachable from the coat! Bonus feature not mentioned - it has a lining in the sleeve that can be brought down and there is thumb hole so no wind getting through when you're wearing gloves! February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome cold weather coat I have worn this coat several times. Including a 14 degree day where I was outside hiking for hours. It does a great job of keeping you warm and the wind off while not overly restricting movement. You still cannot neglect the mid and base layers if you're going to be out for awhile. Especially if you're not moving around much! No coat is going to do that. The only negative is the fur around the hood. Without it the hood loses too much cover. With it, the strands are always in field of view. This isn't a big deal for me as I have other head gear. But if you're going to have a hood the decoration shouldn't take away from functionality. It is fine for occasional use like walking to the car. Size for me 5'4", 115#, wide shoulders and long arms for my size, with good layers was true to size. Bulky mid layers like sweatshirts could be an issue. February 26, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by I wish I could give this a higher rating This jacket would be great except for one thing - THE HOOD. One of the reasons I bought the Apres Arson jacket was because it has a hood. Unfortunately, there is no way to secure the hood to my head - there's no drawstring or snaps. Every time the wind blows, the hood flies right off my head. Or the wind is able to get under the hood and my head feels cold even though I'm wearing a hood. The hood is essentially useless and I am frustrated and disappointed that I now need to purchase a hat in addition to this expensive jacket. This is the first time I've been disappointed by a Columbia product. February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for new York crazy weather Love it, just what I was looking for. The only thing the hood is not adjustable, it doesn't stay on when it's windy. February 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very stylish and warm Love this coat and was happy I bought it. Very stylish and warm but runs small. I bought a XL and it a little snug, I should of got the 1x. I would recommend it to everyone. February 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great coat but... I ordered this coat in mid January and needed it during the coldest part of our season so far. Here is something to keep in mind... If you are a traditional woman who's shoulders are as wide as your hips, follow the sizing guide. If you are like me and your shoulders are wider than your hips, go up a size. I ordered a large and I have a 36 inch bust and usually wear a 12-14 size blouse (depending on the manufacturer). When my large coat arrived it was too tight in the bust. I order an XL and I am very happy with it except for the fact that I only got to wear it for 1 day of COLD weather! I echo what others have said about the zipper -it is difficult. You have to make sure you have the double zipper well gathered to get it zipped. No way you are going to zip this one up in a hurry! That is the trade off for the extra length to keep you warm... February 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Weird fit Coat fit perfectly in terms of length and at the waist, but had really big shoulders and long sleeves...unflattering as a result. Beautiful coat...wish it fit better because I would have loved to have kept it February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy In Marblehead Phenomenal Product! I would suggest. February 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great - could be better To start off with the positives, this coat is definitely warm! I have a 15 minute walk to and from work. It is comfortable and the double zipper is nice for stairs and bus rides. I am 5'3" and 115 lbs and went with the XS. I was hoping to size up and have a bit of room to layer, but I found that when I went up to a size S, the middle section fit almost exactly the same, but the shoulders and arms were laughably big on me. I like the cinching feature of the waist to give me some definition. On the not-so-great features - the zipper can stick and be difficult. The Velcro is so strong that it snags my scarves and clothes - snaps would have been so nice for such an expensive coat. And the biggest annoyance of my life - the hood. Why is there nothing to keep it on? I don't care which way I adjust it, when there is the slightest bit of wind, it flies off. Very frustrating - and cold. I wish I could layer a hooded jacket underneath this easier only for this reason. February 16, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not what I expected from Columbia I purchased this coat in January because I was in desperate need of a winter coat. I tired it on in store and was very satisfied. After buying it I then wore it out of the store! Now, after about a month of wear, I have decided that it was NOT worth the money! Being 5'6" this coat makes me look short! The coat is heavy,bulky and isn't all that warm.The detachable faux fur already looks ratty and makes my hair frizz. I would take it off but doing that makes the hood shorter. Even with the fur attached the hood doesn't stay on my head. Without the fur the hood is pointless. The plastic double zipper is the worst feature! It's hard to zip and not worth my time. Overall I'd say the coat was poorly designed and is way over priced. I'm very disappointed and would've returned it knowingly. February 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST COAT EVER!!! I had to write this review. It is currently 1 degrees with winds -20 to -30 in Chicago. It is really, really cold outside. I wore my coat today going to work. I took the train and I did not feel the cold. I was very warm and comfortable. I also wore the Omni boots, they where very warm and comfortable. I have lived in Chicago for over 20 years and this is the best coat ever!! This coat can handle this brutal Chicago weather! I recommend this coat the everybody. THANK YOU COLUMBIA FOR MAKING THIS COAT! January 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for wintery commute I've only had this product for about a week, but I put it to its first real test on my commute this morning in what the weatherman described as a "squall". I've commuted to work by bus for the past 8 years or so, and after years of miserably braving the elements, finally decided to invest in a good quality, waterproof winter coat. I also wanted a coat that was functional, but stylish enough to wear in any type of outing. Like I said, I've been commuting in this for about a week (mid-January). So far, I find that it's warm enough to stand outside in the slushy rain and snow, but breathable enough that I'm not drenched in sweat while I ride my bus to work. So far, it seems like it really is waterproof and windproof. I am 5'1" and wear a 10-12, and the large fits me great (if not a little big in the shoulders) and hits me right at about the knee. It's a nice snug fit so that no wind is blowing through it, but also flexible enough to easily lift my arms, climb up stairs, etc. Like others have said, I'm not crazy about the velcro on the front closure but it functions well. I've quickly run out the door and just used the velro to close the coat (it's a long zipper and it takes me a while, ok?) It does have lots of nice details that I appreciate- the breast pocket with the opening to slide your headphones through, the puffy collar that blocks cold air and feels like I'm wearing a travel pillow and the little wrist liner thing with a thumb hole. This was a good $100+ more than I typically spend on winter jackets, but it feels worth it if it will actually keep me warm and dry. I'm hoping this will last at least three more winters! January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm coat for commuting in the cold I live in Minneapolis and this coat keeps me warm over a sweater even when waiting for the bus in below freezing temps and wind chill. I usually wear an XS but found that this coat runs a little big, especially in the arms and hips. That said, I'm quite pear shaped (36" hips) and find that the slight bell silhouette is not only flattering, but ensures the coat is comfortable when sitting down on the bus. I don't think sizing would be an issue unless you are very, very slim. Also, the slightly bigger arms allow for sweaters to fit nicely underneath. The zippered pockets and adjustable hood make this coat very functional. At this price point, I do wish that some of the materials were a bit higher quality; for example, I wish that the velcro closures were button snaps and that the arms were lined with a thicker material, like the men's Barlow Pass coat. Despite that one complaint, this coat in gorgeous, well made, and is great for protecting from severe cold and wind chill. I'd highly recommend it, especially if you can get it on sale! Love the lighter tan-grey color, too. January 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good winter coat Pros: waterproof, toasty insulation, excellent for bus commuting in windy, rainy, 30-40 degree temps in Seattle winter. Also nicely fitted. Cons: the faux fur on the hood looks like I'm wearing a muppet & tho it's detachable, when removed the brim of the hood sits too far back to shield my face, and I'm not a fan of the Velcro - fine when coat is zipped but catches on clothes when open. Size reference: I'm 5'3" 108 lbs 34/26/35 and the XS fits perfectly. January 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this coat! I have searched far and wide for a coat that has the features I wanted and needed in a winter coat and this one nails it on the head! Its tough to find a long winter coat that is fashionable, warm, not shiny, not "quilted" or puffy, not black/grey, and that has the ability to remove both hood and fur AND has wrist warmers built in with thumb holes so no more cold wrists when donning gloves. I couldn't be happier! January 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good value for money. I purchased this Jacket for the Chicago winter. So far, It's been very good, but thankfully , the winter so far did not worsen and is relatively warmer compared to the last couple of years. This jacket ,works great for temperature of 20 F and i find it really comfortable to walk with it to get to my work place everyday. The Omni insulation is great, i can really feel my body heat reflected through this material. I do not know yet, how this Jacket would work for even lower temperature, but overall, it is a great buy for the price it comes with. I got a crimson red Small and it fits fairly well ( if not a little big ).I'd recommend this product. January 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost Perfect I absolutely love this jacket. I walk to work in Chicago and it has kept me warm. The only two complaints that I have is that I wish there were buttons instead of velcro for the outer enclosure which is in addition to the zipper. Also, the zipper seems to be a bit tricky to zip up. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A gem of a jacket I bought this jacket for a Scandinavian trip. This jacket far succeeded my expectations. It's warm and comfortable. I backpacked Scandinavia wearing this jacket and was almost too hot-- it was perfect. I've also worn it in the snow while snowmobiling. It did a fabulous job at blocking the wind and insulating me from the wind and snow. I would definitely buy this jacket again. I'm 5'4 and about 125 pounds-- went with a small and it fit perfectly. All my other Columbia gear is a small so I feel as though it was pretty true to size. December 31, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too tight and long I'm 5'4" and about 115 pounds. I see an interesting divergence in the existing reviews about whether this coat runs large or small, and I think I can guess why. I find that it's tight in the arms but long overall. I got a small because I couldn't imagine wanting armholes any tighter than that, but realized after wearing it out that it's designed for someone who's longer everywhere. The waist sits a little too low, the sleeves are too long, etc. I didn't try on an XS, but I'm guessing it would look better while being more constricting up top. (Unless all the coats are the same length, but different widths -- in which case, it's really only appropriate for someone at least 5'5".) December 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy and Warm! First off, I'm 5'8", 138 pds. with 34C/34D chest. The size small fit very well, with only a slight tightness in the chest, which was not bad at all. I liked that it was form-fitting. I have smaller hips but did not really experience the bell shape that some did. (Maybe slightly curvy...but not like a bell.) I bought it in the red and love the color! It kind of changes from a rust to a cranberry red depending on the lighting. Overall I thought it was very flattering. As far as warmth, it is extremely warm! Tested it in 10°F weather and was toasty. I'm sure it will be just as warm at negative temps. This coat is awesome! December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This! I was looking for a knee length coat that would keep me warm while outside for a couple hours at a time for my job. This coat is great! Wore it the other day while standing outside for work, temp was in the upper 20's and I stayed warm and dry while it was snowing heavily. The coat fit great although it may run a little small depending on how roomy you like your coat. I'm 5'7" and weigh 150 lbs, ordered a medium and think the coat has a nice tailored look to it. Does have a little bit of a bell shape on the bottom but nothing bad. I ordered the kettle gray and think it is a nice color that can look either gray or brown depending on what you're wearing it with. Exactly what I was looking for and my husband really likes how it looks on me! December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best winter coat EVER! !!! Love this coat! !! It's warm & you can move around in it. So functional & I like the style of the coat. I can't say enough good things about this coat, best winer coast over bought EVER! !!! December 19, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Odd Bell Shaped Bottom I really wanted this coat to work, as it was everything I was looking for, but it didn't work out. I'm 5'4" 125lb and got the medium, as sizing says it ran small, it absolutely engulfed me. Not only that but the bottom had an odd bell shape to it, and not one that would work with a womens curves, huge bell. I've decided not to exchange as I'm too afraid it will have the same odd shape. Plus it cost $16.50 to return through UPS so I'm not putting any more money into it. December 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great coat but order up!! I really love this coat, though I wish I had ordered a large. The medium fits with a heavy sweater, but i will not be able to layer a vest. 5'1" 120 lbs. If you like a little wiggle & layering room order next size up, better than too small The length is great, I think the cut is attractive. So far warm, but real winter hasn't hit yet. I am not fond of the velcro outside closures, wish they were snaps. So far have worn it in sleet and light snow-low 20's, hope it stay warm when the temps really dip. December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by SHE LOVED IT Got this jacket for some one special and she loved it!!! December 14, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by This Jacket was not for me This coat runs small and the Kettle Gray is more of a weird green. The cut was not flattering on me (I am 5'10, normally wear either an L or XL, but I would not have been able to wear more than one layer under it comfortably.) I saw it on a petite woman in the red and it looked great! December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent coat Excellent winter coat. It really runs small, so I recommend to order a size up. My size is XL and I had to exchange it for 1X. I have not tried it yet, waiting for colder temperatures, but it seems to be very warm. I like the style, it is not bulky and it is confortable. Very good support service with Columbia. Very satisfied with my order and service. December 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Coat! The coat is well-made and really warm. However, it's too large for me so I decided to return it. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this coat Size up....I'm normally a Large and ordered XL which fits good,,...this coat looks great and the red color is beautiful and it's not a bright red...coat flares out at bottom which I like....can't wait for it to get cold so I can wear my coat....its been seasonably warm in Dec 2015 December 13, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not a great coat I was really looking forward to liking this coat - the vibrant red as shown online seemed unique and the rain protection/down fill combo sounded promising. I ordered both a S and a M, fitting somewhere inbetween, at 5'10'' and 130 lbs. What a disappointment! The red was a deep maroon, really just not a flattering or interesting color at all Very misrepresented on the online image! The small fit too snug, while the medium was too baggy. The sleeves were bulky and the material was too stiff - my arms could barely bend at the elbows. The zipper going up to the face clung at the chest and cut into my chin. Not a bit of softness or give to the material. The reflective dots honesty seem like a scam - I do not believe a bunch of aluminum foil will keep me warmer. Such a cop out! The down insulation was thin and I did not trust it to keep me warm. It was like a super light down coat trapped inside a stiff waterproof shell. The flaring out at the hips wasn't even the biggest issue. Additionally, I had to pay $30 for a return. Definitely do not suggest this coat if you want to feel warm, protected and comfortable. Went with a Patagonia coat (so soft and comfy!) and a $5 CVS poncho instead for sublime rain protection on a stormy day in iceland. December 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Winter Coat I live in Iowa and need a warm coat.. And I got it .. I normally wear a large but from reading other reviews I thought I should go to XL and Im so happy I did . Coat fits great.. December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love, love, love this coat It's true that the coat flares out a litte from the waist, but that's helpful in keeping it under your butt when you sit down. It keeps me toasty warm and dry, and yet indoors I don't get too hot. Amazing. My last Columbia coat lasted 20 years so all this new technology is blowing me away. December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this coat I love this coat! The quality is superb. I really love the fabric. It's only been cold enough to wear it one time but then it was in the teens and snowing. I was very warm and stayed dry. It does bell out a little at the bottom which is disappointing but overall I highly recommend it! December 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmth with a style I bought this coat in gray two winters ago in medium for snug fit. I got red one this year in small for a slim fit. Red color looks little darker than what it looks in the web. I wear size 6-8 for dress. Only thing i want to reconstruct is the hood without adjusting draw string for the snow storm. It looks classy but litte heavy for the weight. Its construction looks sturdy and durable. I'm sure it will last long time. It surely keeps you warm throughout the long winter in the east coast. December 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Average The hood does not cover my whole head, and that is disappointing. I need protection for my head from snow and rain. Also, the interior is lined with a metallic sheen that reminds me of aluminum foil. Why not do a fabric? A light fleece? That said, exterior of the jacket is pretty and functional. Not as warm as advertised. I will wear it until temp drops to 25 degrees. Did I mention how disappointing the hood is? December 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmish I loved the original Omniheat jackets, but a long jacket was not offered in the early days of Omniheat. Given my winter novice status, I did not understand how important this was. I've waited five years to justify the cost of a new coat and decided to go with the Apres Arson. I love the longer length, but I don't feel like the down filling is as good as my first Columbia jacket. My arms in particular are quite cold on my morning walk to work when the weather dips below freezing. I would still recommend it for the combination of water proofing and down + omniheat. That being said I have not tried the Turbodown. Perhaps that is warmer? Also, this jacket runs a bit small. November 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shape is weird, but will be very warm I got this coat despite concerns about the bell shape mentioned in other reviews. The coat definitely does have that shape, and I'm not a fan. I'm also pretty bottom heavy so it's strange for me to have that problem. However, I'll probably still keep the coat. It seems like it'll be very warm, and I need something that holds up to Cleveland winters. I also really like the red color. Winter is dreary enough as it is, so I like having a brighter option in a coat. For reference, I got a size small and I have a 27 inch waist, 39 inch hips, and 5'7". Fits snug but not tight in waist, large in hips, and hits just above the knee. November 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE LOVE - Warm and Toasty! WARM Coat. Snowed 6 inches in Chicago today and I was comfortably warm for the 45 minutes spent outside watching the kids play with only a a thin t-shirt underneath). Love that it is water and wind proof (thanks to my daughter for testing the water part with several snowballs). For sizing, I am 5'6", normally wear a 12 or large with a 36DD bust and hourglass figure - no tug or pull issues in the bust or bottom. Sleeves were just past the top of my wrist and the length was just to the knee. The coat is contemporary in style (being mid-30s its important that I don't look "old" in it), tailored with back snaps to adjust it inward offering more of an accented waistline which makes it even more flattering to the figure and not awkwardly bulky. Kudos to the design team - pockets are well placed and not tight - love the warm lining and the sleeve/wrist covers with thumb holes - great with gloves! Hood stays up and doesn't obstruct views. Zipper starts just above the knee and has a reverse zip to allow for more leg movement and comfort while driving/sitting. I still need to test it walking long distance/commuting in high wind, though. I bought it to replace my mink (yes, that's what you have to break out in single digits with 30mph wind in Chicago) as a commuter coat as well as to wear for the football games in December. I figure if I was as warm as I was in a T at 35 degrees, a wool or cashmere sweater at 10 degrees or lower should be more than fine. Oh, and this is my first Columbia in 15 years - that bugaboo set is still going strong and well used for sledding/skiing. November 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by bad zipper, runs very small but..... Fabric: top drawer. Ruff: love it in winter. Waist tabs: extra love it. But the zipper wouldn't budge from the start, it runs quite small * I'm a 14 and it was tight, and * gasp * it has velcro tabs. I'm returning because of the zipper. But if I'd known it had velcro I wouldn't have chosen it from the start, despite the excellent style. I simply can't bear velcro - the way it sticks on mittens, scarves, my sweaters, etc. All things winter. November 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Columbia jacket The jacket is extremely warm and very comfy. It's quite stylish and looks quite different from the others. November 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just got this at the Columbia store Just got this coat & love it!!! I was looking for Chicago-winter warmth with a defined waist. The reviewers who say the hips are TOO generous and "bell" like must be ultra-blessed with man-like figures. If you have standard size 12-14 hourglass curves, you'll love this coat! Plus, the waist-cinched is adjustable so you can bring it in or out to be as curvy hourglass or not as you want. For reference, I'm size 12 Julie pants @ Ann Taylor Loft, size 32 jeans at GAP. I got size XL because I need to be able to fit winter sweaters etc under it. I'm 5'4" and this coat ends just above the knee for me. Last year my thighs were cold waiting the train on the commute, so this should be great. November 12, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Awkward Coat I just received this coat today, tried it on, and am immediately returning it. It looks ridiculous. I read the previous reviews about the hip/mid thigh area being a little large and looking somewhat like a bell, but not all of the reviews seemed to find that to be an issue. Trust me: it's an issue. The hip/thigh area is VERY disproportionate to the waist area. To give you an idea (using the medium sized coat), measuring the outside of the coat in inches, the circumference of the waist area is about 35 inches & the circumference of the thigh area is about 47 inches. November 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hot on the Wifey My wife ordered this jacket and looks smokin' hot in it. She wore it to a football game and stayed nice and cozy the entire game. November 8, 2015
