Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for! I have been looking for a coat just like this, waterproof, warm, and good for packing! This fights the list! I wore it out on a boat last weekend where I purposely tried to get it wet, and I stayed dry and warm. I was pretty shocked since the coat is so light and thin... that Omni heat must be where the magic happens. I am almost 6 feet with a long torso. I wish the arms were just a little bit longer, but they do the job, luckily I don't walk like a stereotypical zombie, otherwise it might be not super comfortable. :) The 2 way zip is really great for sitting and when you want the coat closed, but still want the air flow and to show off your outfit. Thanks Columbia for making all my current coat dreams a reality. :) October 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice I made my purchase based off the reviews of others, most were saying the cost runs very,very small. I sized up, I bought a 3x I'm a 1/2x. It fit rather big but not too big, I could see where some would say it runs small. I did have room to spare, I did not exchange for a smaller size because I'm 6ft and needed the arm room. Nice I like it, nice, very light weight. September 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST Winter Coat! I love this coat so much for winter! I teach and when I have to take the kids outside for recess or dismissal, this keeps my entire body warm. I love how it comes down over my tush and part of my thighs, and keeps me toasty. It is a very lightweight material, so I wasn't sure it was going to keep me warm enough. BUT it definitely does! I think the lining inside must trap my body heat. I am never hot in it though! I LOVE it, and I can't recommend it enough! I can't wait to try other Columbia products! September 3, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Runs small in the shoulders Sleeves are very short and runs tight in the shoulders. I so loved this coat, would have been perfect for being outside in the cold, but had to be returned. August 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Coat! So light but yet so warm! Great for MN winters! July 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket This is the best winter jacket I have every owned. Warm, dry and super comfortable. Love it! May 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality! This coat has everything! It is rainproof, has a hood, is warm and is extremely soft and comfortable! Plus it folds up for travelling. High quality coat! May 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Yes. This coat runs very small. I bought 2 coats at the same time - this one & the 'Sweet As' Long Softshell - in the same size. It is remarkable how differently they fit. FIT - This coat runs at least a size small - maybe a size and a half. I ordered up, because of the reviews (normally wear a 2X in Columbia, and ordered a 3X), and am so glad I did. It fits - but there isn't any spare room at all. I don't think I could even comfortably wear a heavy sweater underneath it. It is snug across my shoulders and tops of my arms, but not to the point of hinderance. The sleeves are verging on too short -- the little cuff with the thumb hole (which I LOVE) does pull at my thumb if I am moving around at all. FABRIC - This coat is crazy light. This makes me crazy happy. The outside is slick, but not shiny, and the reflective interior is not only handy when wearing something a little rough (waffle weave anything that wants to grab all other liners), but does the job of keeping me warm in spite of the thinness. It isn't totally wind blocking, but does a fair job, and I haven't yet worn in any kind of wet. The cuffs are a thin, stretchy, smooth poly fabric that feels good against my wrist and hand. The pockets are fleecy lined. I wore it down into the low 30's with a steady wind, and was fine, tho I could feel a bit of the wind wanting to creep in. I think w a decent (thin) base layer & a shirt, it could be worn into the 20's with no issues. COLOR/STYLE - I have nocturnal, which has since sold out. It's a gorgeous deep, true blue, almost navy color. The double zipper is heavy, & seems like it will wear well. The shape of this is good, even running small - body skimming, not bulky. WISHES - I will always wish for a better fitting hood. I don't understand why there can't be adjustments on them. Are there really that many very long-necked, big-headed people? I wish the thumb hole on the cuff were more envelope style, instead of like a button hole - I find those to be much less binding and comfortable. In spite of the smallness of size - I do love this coat. I'm glad I got the chance to wear it in the last gasp of winter that we're having. April 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Coat Ever Other than running very small to size, this is a GREAT coat!! I bought one for my mom for Christmas in 2015 and she loves it. So I ordered myself one too. At under $100 now, it is a steal. So thin and functional but so warm! Perfect length too. Not too long but covers your rearend perfectly. Love it!! February 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic mid length jacket! I am a huge fan of Columbia! I have owned several of their items over the years and this jacket is one of my favorites. It's lightweight while still being warm during the long, cold Syracuse winters and is so comfortable!!! The length is perfect for driving as it is long enough to sit on but does it interfere with your legs and doesn't ride up the way waist length jackets can. I am 5'3" and it hits mid thigh which is exactly what I was looking for. My only negative is that the zipper is quite finicky and rarely zips on the first attempt. Other than that, I love this coat!! February 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This coat is true to it's name. It truly is lite. This is my first experience wearing a Mighty Lite. I get cold very easily. I was impressed with how this coat retained it's warmth. I will buy this coat for my granddaughter. February 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect winter jacket I am in love with this jacket. it's very warm without being bulky. I normally wear size 2X for regular clothing like shirts and blouses. but 1X in this jacket was perfect for me February 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mighty Lite Hooded Jacket This is a great coat, very light and warm. However it does run just a little small. I would recommend it to others in perhaps a size larger than a person normally wears. February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very warm, light weight I love this coat. It is light weight and packs really well and is also warm. I can move freely in it. February 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good Thank you for your work! February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Love the fit. The length is great. Can use it as a windbreaker or layer it on a colder day. The Omni tech is amazingly warm. January 28, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great concept, BUT... I love the idea of the omni-heat, and it does work well, but the sizing is terrible. I am a 3x and I would expect the sleeves to also be a little roomy. The sleeves appear to be the same size as on a coat that is size large, no room at all. I cannot wear a sweater underneath, even with a t-shirt the sleeves are just too snug. If I hadn't cut the tags off I would be returning this coat. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome!! Love this coat,it's lightweight what I was looking for.love the lining not heavy at all.Very warm ,gonna wear today . January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely comfortable light weight warmer than expected Extremely lightweight for driving..shopping in stores without sweating..very very comfotable. Zips top and bottom for sitting. Pockets are deep and top convenient pocket in placard are very accessible without bulk! WINTER walking you can easily layer with fleece or sweater for more warmth. I ordered a 2nd one for colors. My daughter owns one and gave me a fabulous gift card so I am getting another one. G re at for any age and size. Unique lining is fun to wear ..feeling very special in an easily slip into warm jacket. One other thing built in sleeve hand warmers. .love them .. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great jacket Do you drive a car? Then this jacket is a must for you to have. It is very warm and comfortable to wear. A soft jacket. I love the bottom zipper you can pull up to increase your leg movement while driving. I know you will be very happy to add this jacket to your collection. It has great style and can be also worn to dress up or in sports attire. January 26, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible coat.. They took a large piece of fabric and added arms & a hood.. Absolutely no shape to the coat. I could have made that coat myself. January 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfectly long I have another 1X jacket that fits very nicely so I got a 1X in this one as well. It is a bit bigger though. Not too much, but noticeable. I like it though b/c I can wear my heavy sweaters underneath! I wish I had a picture though b/ there are 4 of us at my work and we all have the same jacket in different colors!!! I do wish it had a little drawstring in the hood though. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Purchase I purchased this jacket for a January trip to Chicago. Even when the temperature was -1 with a wind chill of -20, I was toasty warm. The sleeve inserts that fit over the thumb are a very nice addition. I also appreciated the very thin construction of the jacket since we were flying & I needed to store the jacket for the flight. I would purchase this again without any hesitation. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the coat! This is my first long coat and I have to say I love it. It is the perfect length for day to day. The full length zipper is great. It's light weight and warm. If I was going to have a suggestion it would be for the hood only. It needs to be secured with something because I have to hold it on in the windy rainy weather running between errands. Otherwise I'm very happy with my purchase. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful color Love my new winter jacket. I waited a long time to order one, but when I found it on sale I couldn't resist. So warm, yet so light weight its easy to move around in. January 21, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sizes Wow! I like the Mighty Lite each time I try it on, that's all I'll ever do as, I mis-ordered 2 different sizes based on reviews and my stupidity, and now that I know the size I need, they are all out of that one, in all colors. Jeesh! The size chart is way off. I'd say to go with your gut on size/fit. Too bad, I was looking forward to owning one. I found the online ordering system and applicable credits to be cumbersome and a waste of a lot of time. January 20, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I really wanted this jacket to work but I ended up returning it based on a couple different features. I ordered a 2x based on reviews that the jacket ran a little small. The fit was perfect through the shoulders and bust area but was too large through the hips and below. The weight of the jacket was perfect, great for the fluctuating winter temps in Colorado. I would have liked a drawstring for the hood as well as around the bottom so those features could be cinched in on colder/windier days. January 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Large I ordered the 1X after reading the reviews however it was HUGE. I went back to order the XL instead but it is no longer available. The jacket is great - light weight, warm, great in a big rain storm. Perfect length just above the knees. I am 5'6" and 150lbs. Love the jacket just wish I had ordered the XL while it was available. January 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Light Jacket coat is very light weight but it keep you warm for the most part, hood do not stay on and there's no string to pull tight January 20, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointed with Columbia while i was thrilled to see columbia is branching out to the plus sizes, they still have a lot to learn about tailoring to the plus size body. first lesson - my head is not the size of an elephant just because i have some extra junk in my trunk - this hood is completely unusable and I'm forced to literally hold it up if I would to shield my face from the wind and the rain. Second lesson - my wrists are not the same size as my elbow - the sleeves barely tapper and im left with a fistful of extra fabric at my wrists. Aside from fit, im disappointed about the finishing of the collar - every other jacket i have from Columbia (and i have quite a few) the interior collar is something soft and comfortable to the touch - this jacket has the same finish on the interior collar as the exterior so it feels as if i have a wet plastic bag on my face - which is extra wet due to the ineffective hood. this jacket lacks the attention to detail i have previously received from Columbia products and if they made another long jacket in a plus size i would return it in a heartbeat. I am extra disappointed that in the making of this plus size jacket Columbia designers seemed to have forgotten the aspects that make their products great - i hope they are reading this and will make a product i want to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product. This jacket is great! Very warm and light. January 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I saw this jacket in an outlet store but they only had the shorter length version. I was skeptical that it would keep me warm but took the chance and ordered it and I'm so glad I did. The length is perfect for me, it covers my backside fully and on me, is just shy of mid thigh in length. The zipper is of questionable quality but I can live with it because there are so many other things to love about the jacket. I've worn the jacket outside in increments of an hour so in single digit temperatures and it keeps me warm. I didn't think I would use the comfort cuffs with the thumb holes but I use them nearly every time I wear the jacket. It is super warm without being bulky and it looks so much nicer than my 12+ year old Columbia bugaboo jacket. January 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice light longer jacket Love the color, size, length. Wish the hood had someway to close, when windy and needing it to be up. January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable and light weight Bought this for my wife for Christmas and she loves it. It's light weight and great for everyday wear January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat !! I usually wear a 1X, but bought a 2X since it said 'runs a little small' - it's actually quite roomy and could have gone for the 1X, but I love it ~ it is so super light, yet VERY warm in 35-40 degree weather in the San Francisco Bay Area this winter. I am not sure how it would do in a much colder climate, but imagine it would still be quite warm. I'm going to buy another one ~ sale price is right ! The only thing I would prefer is if you could also snap it and not always have to zip it to close it. January 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat! I haven't had a new winter coat in over 14 yrs because I am so picky. I am that fluffy person who can't find the style I want that looks good and fits right. This coat met all my expectations and I am so happy I purchased it! I have two family memwbers who have the same coat but we all have it in different colors. January 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Coat I was so tired of being cold and wet. I have this same item in a short jacket without a hood and love it so bought this longer coat version with a hood. Best and most cozy coat I've ever had. January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect coat for the PNW I love this coat. This is my second winter wearing it. Its got all the warmth of a large puffy coat, but is not bulky and marshmallow man looking. I wear it almost everyday, enough protection for short time spent out in the elements. Love the spandex cuffs inside as well. For once a columbia extended size has arms long enough for me! I dinged them one box on quality, as my second year wearing it, the threads on the cross seams are starting to fray a bit. Does not hurt function, but when i look down i notice a few "hair" like threads sticking out. January 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great coat for reasonably cold weather I really like this jacket. It's the perfect length for me - almost down to my knees and is so light and easy to move around in. I find I'm very comfortable when the weather is in the 20s or even in the teens with my sweatshirt on underneath. My only complaint is that it has no drawstring for the hood. I think if it had that, I would be more comfortable in the lower temperatures, but without it, the wind just whips right in. I have to wear a stocking hat and scarf underneath the hood to help keep out the wind, which works well as long as it's not too windy. January 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm & Dry! The Women's Mighty Lite Hooded Jacket is the very best investment I've made in a long time. The exterior fabric keeps me dry in rainy weather & the Omni-Shield Shell keeps me very warm, even in snowy climates. The best thing about the Mighty Light Hooded Jacket is that it is true to its name! You do not need to layer clothing under it & it isn't bulky like other winter jackets. I love it! January 12, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by cold arms I love the way it looks! Makes an over eater, under achiever look fantastic. BUT NO SILVER DOTS in the sleeves. The body remains warm but the arms freeze. PLEASE send me silver dotted sleeves to sew into the coat. I want to take to Iceland but can't take as is. January 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lite Hooded Jacket I love this coat. It is so light to wear but very warm. Love the length - I bought the navy and the colour is perfect. I very much like the sleeves that tuck into your hand - great feature. I look forward to having this for a while Sandra January 7, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Weird sizing and bad fit You would think that for an athletic clothing company, they would actually make clothing for athletic people I am 5' 10", I have larger boobs and my 10 year old xl jacket does not fit anymore after having kids. I ordered the 2x as per your size chart the shoulders and chest are way too small and the waist and the hips are like a freaking tent! And sleeves are too short! I will be returning. Your sizing needs to revisted. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love I just received my new jacket in the mail - I love it! The length is perfect. There are lots of negative comments about the hood - to me it's just right. I like wearing a hat and the hood in combination is spot on. I ordered a size up to accommodate my chest size. My hip size does not require extra room so the jacket "bells" out more than I like but it's better than being snug in the chest. The only other drawback is minor and taste specific - I am not crazy about white stitching on a black jacket (logo). Otherwise, I'm crazy excited about my new coat for the Minnesota winter ahead. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice jacket. This jacket is very light weight and warm and can be folded or rolled up to pack. It will come in handy when travelling to the air port this season as I can pack it into an outside pocket of a suit case easily. I'm very happy with this purchase. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by mighty lite Love this coat. Very light weight but keeps me very warm. I highly recommend this coat!! January 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice and WARM!!! I have only had it a short time but used it during the 1st snow storm in Northern Michigan and I was warm, no wind came through it, and I stayed dry in the wet sleeting blowing snow. I was out for about an hour each time and it was great!!!! I love that I couldn't feel the wind that was whipping all around me. If I have any complaints its that it runs a little small in the breast area I'm a (D cup) just FYI but still comfy enough and definitely warm enough! December 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not water resistant First let me start by saying that I'm a fan of this coat. I love that it's so light weight, with that being said I live in Chicago,IL and we just experienced our first winter storm mix. I'm sad to say that this coat did not stand up very well to it. I got wet, especially my arms. I had a light jacket on underneath it and the jacket arms were also wet. My chest area did not get wet nor did it get cold. I'm not trying to detour anyone from buying this coat, just let you know that it's not completely water proof. December 29, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ehh! Nothing special and very thin. It's long to cover your hinny, but it's very thin and won't handle the Portland, Oregon rain. Expensive for what it is. Sleeve length was ok. I'm 5'12". December 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, but packed with tech quality! This coat amazes me, it is soo light but with the lining being reflective technology where it uses your warmth it really makes this coat one of a kind! Love, that it isn't super heavy! Great sizing as well. Worth , the money! December 27, 2015
