Women’s Hot Thought™ Jacket – Extended Size 4 5 12 12
Not the same quality as the men's product The women's jacket does NOT provide the same warmth as the male version. My husband loved his Omni Heat-Omni Tech jacket. You could instantly feel the warmth. I thought - why not get one for myself. I liked the fact that these jackets do not take much space in a suitcase. But the women's jacket does NOT supply the warmth. I compared the labels of our jackets and they say the same thing, but the women's jacket does not provide the same quality. Basically, this can be classified as a heavy wind breaker. I also find with Columbia, I need to upsize. While I can wear an L/XL at any other store, I must order a 1X at Columbia. November 11, 2013
Difficult zippers Returning the jacket. I had hoped to wear it as a top layer for skiing. It's warm, it looks great, but the zippers are very difficult to operate with small pull tabs and sluggish tracks -- not at all convenient with ski mitts. September 15, 2013
Waterproof and Warm! I haven't had a chance to use the jacket yet but it is exactly what I was looking for. I t has the warmth and waterproof all in one and if needed you can layer with heavy sweater or polar fleece. The size is perfect, I usually wear a 16 to 18 and ordered the 1X. August 14, 2013
Great rain jacket This is a great rain jacket, although it runs a little small and a little short. Kept me dry in Alaska and in Portland, OR, and that is a testement. July 18, 2013
Omni Heat jacket I love this jacket - I wish Columbia products did not run so small in sizing. July 1, 2013
Almost Perfect There are a lot of great things about this jacket. The material isn't stiff at all so you can move, it does a great job regulating your body temperature, and so far the waterproofing works well but I haven't tried it in very wet conditions, only light rain. The things that make it "almost perfect but not quite" are that it's a bit shorter then I would prefer (especially in the front... I would like for it to cover my upper thighs but it only comes to my waist), and I'm not a huge fan of the two-tone black sleeves (the body of the jacket is black but the arms are a grayish blackish design with a small line pattern running through it...it's hard to describe - photo included). The other thing I was also a little concerned about was that I wanted to buy a fleece for layering and I wasn't sure how the sizes would line up, so I bought the same size in both the fleece and the jacket and they work perfectly together.

Beautiful! It's a keeper! If you're looking for a very stylish, super-functional lightweight rain jacket with the much coveted Omni-heat feature, look no further! I got this coat in black in my normal size it fits true to size, if not just a tad bit large in the hip area. That's a plus for me for being able to sit down in the coat and still keep it zipped. Interestingly enough, the sleeves are a just tad bit long on this jacket too, but they're easily managed with the velcro adjustments provided. The black one has a style feature of dark grey/black sleeves wich is a nice touch and makes the jacket look a little more dressy. This jacket is perfect for a slightly cool, rainy day or as a light everyday jacket to have on hand for chilly mornings. For those of you keeping track - this is my 12th Columbia jacket! I love them all and wear them proudly. Thank you for stylish, plus-sized jackets, Columbia! Please keep them coming. March 29, 2013
My go to jacket. I have used this jacket in all types of weather, very pleased with it's performance. With a benton fleece underneath I remain very warm in moderate winter temperatures. March 20, 2013
Columbia womens hot thought jacket My wife loves it. Fits perfectly and is great quality. I have a Columbia waterproof jacket of my own and highly recommend the men's and women's March 15, 2013
jacket runs a little small great jackst love the hot thought.. only issue if your layering this jacket runs a tad small. November 13, 2012
Cute, but not great I love the color of the jacket, but found that the sizing and cut isn't great and it's rather thin for a jacket. October 12, 2012
Onmi Jacket I found the jacket runs slightly small through the hips. Manufacturer needs to remember that women have hips. It will be hard to zip if bulky clothing is worn under it. I purchased it because my husband has one and loves it. It would be nice if the hood would roll into the collar like his does. September 22, 2012
