Women's Mighty Lite™ Hooded Jacket - Plus Size 4.5 5 42 42
Pleasantly Suprised I purchased this coat on a whim, forgoing my usual wool coat that I freeze in all winter. Finally deciding I was going to have a warm coat this winter. I searched every website and store I could find and eventually stumbled upon this jacket. I am 5'7'' with a long torso and arms, so finding clothing that fits well is challenging. Most of the jackets I had tried thus far went up to my forearms when I put my arms out in front and are so puffy I feel like the stay puft man from Ghostbusters. I decided to purchase one of these jackets despite being unable to try it on as there are no stores carrying it near me and I figured "why not?". Living in Green bay, WI, I worried that it would not be warm enough, based on other reviews. I can 100% say that is not the case. This week it has been below zero temps, currently it is 5 degrees, but with windchill feels like -18. I walk across a open parking lot 1 block wide to get to my work and I can definitely say wearing this jacket, I am not cold, any area covered by this jacket is toasty warm. There are a few downsides to this jacket. 1. As I mentioned, I have long arms, thus, the thumb holes feel like they are attempting to sever my thumbs if I put my arms out, however, this is not a deal breaker as I simply don't use the holes, I find no real difference as the material still seals well. 2. The dang zipper is one of the most frustrating zippers it has been my displeasure to work with. If I were not so thrilled with the rest of this jacket, the zipper would ruin the deal for me. Columbia if you read this, please examine the zipper, it sticks and catches and takes 3-4+ times to attempt to zip with the right maneuvering. With those being said, I would still recommend this coat in a heartbeat for anyone who is looking for a long jacket that provides an amazing amount of warmth. As a testament to this jacket, for Christmas I went on to purchase one for my mother who is in her late 50's and is constantly cold, she loves it as well! January 8, 2015
slimming coat! I love the way this coat is so slimming! It is also really warm using Omni heat technology. It only weighs 2 pounds. It runs a bit small. My usual size was too smug when worn over a sweater. I love having the 2 way zipper when I sit down. December 20, 2014
Not true to size I am very happy with this coat with the exception that it is rather not true to size. I will have to return it for a smaller size. Otherwise it is a very nice coat. December 19, 2014
Just perfect !! Love this coat. The little thumb holes on the sleeves are great and the pockets are coZy. The jacket is so soft and warm and airy December 18, 2014
Mighty Light AWESOME So... I will start this review off by stating that I live in Minneapolis. I have a close and personal relationship with bitter cold (I would say not by choice, but that's a lie. Go Twins). This coat... Takes the cake. I traded out my threadbare 3 in 1 interchangeable jacket for this thin little slice of heaven and could not be happier. When the mercury dips into the negatives, I throw on my long Benton springs fleece jacket for layering and I am good to go. The wind does not penetrate this jacket whatsoever, which was important for me. Standing temperatures don't bother me, its the wind chill that irritates me. I'm built like a chunky Amazonian woman... 5'10 with a large chest and hips, so the 2X was perfect - Roomy enough to move and layer when necessary. I generate a lot of heat, so the OmniHeat tech is absolutely divine. If you're constantly cold, this would not be the jacket for you. The only thing I don't like about the jacket is how dainty the outer fabric seems. Stitching has come undone in some areas, which I fixed with a little knot using my thread and needle. I, however, don't feel this is a deal breaker because dang it... I'm warm and not puffy looking. I have recommended this coat to 3 people at work - Now, all three of us dance donning our light jackets in the parking lot while the other office gnomes grimace in their cubicles. Win.

Big girls, this will fit you! I am so excited about this coat, really and truly! I searched everywhere looking for a new coat because I haven't had one in years and I needed to make a wise decision. I'm a big girl, almost pushing the 3x sizing (also only 5ft), so that makes the search for size, quality, and price pretty difficult. I read reviews and was somewhat concerned about sizing, where the waistline would fit, if it would zip, and whether it would be warm enough for the wind-whipping Illinois winters. I walk about four blocks into work, so I really need something that has me covered. I do tend to run hot, so the omni-heat works really well for me. So far I've worn the coat into the high teens with howling wind and every place that the coat covers is kept incredibly warm! I will have to experiment with colder days, too. The color is beautiful, and the quality is great- the pockets are lined with fleece and wonderfully deep. What a relief of a purchase for me! It gives me shape, is stylish, and is everything I thought I would never find in a coat (as a fat girl). The zipper can take an extra minute to work sometimes, but that's such a minor issue for me, I can't be alone in being glad that something this beautiful even ZIPS! I read other reviews about people saying the outside fabric is delicate and pulls easily, which could be true- if you're not careful. Just be mindful of treating your stuff properly. Thank you, Columbia, for making such a wonderful coat! December 17, 2014
Slim fit and warm I had all 3 plus sizes to try on. I am between size 18 and 20 but even with a thick sweater, the 1X fit well through the body and shoulders. While I generally find sleeves long on me, these aren't so the sleeve extension cuts into my hands a bit. Overall very happen with this coat. December 17, 2014
Lightweight and Warm I have used this coat as an everyday coat since it arrived and am glad I purchased it. The coat runs small so order 1 size up, however the arms are long. I am about 5' 8 and normally wear a 2x but after trying on in the store I knew to order the 3x. My first impression of the extended cuff with thumb loops was that I would hate them and they would be in my way all the time. However, I am actually enjoying them. They keep out the wind and cold and help keep the hands warm on days when you don't have your gloves. I have worn the coat in the 40's and not been too hot in it even wearing it when running into the grocery store, and worn it in the 10's and still been comfortably warm. It is very lightweight and I love that. I cannot drive in a coat that is bulky and this has been perfect. My one complaint would be that the hood will not stay on if there is any wind at all, unless you zip the zipper all the way up. Overall, this is a great lightweight but warm coat and I am happy with my purchase. December 17, 2014
Lightweight and warm It does exactly what it is supposed to and is super comfortable. December 16, 2014
Awesome Jacket This jacket is amazing! It fits with enough room to layer If need be and I can do my errands while staying really warm and not feeling bulky. At first I thought it was too thin but I was wrong lol. It keeps real warm. I love the hood and thumb holes and the stitching designs. I have received many compliments. I live in Indiana so it can get pretty cold but I love new jacket. December 16, 2014
Amazing Lightweight Warm Winter Coat I am tired of the big, bulky and HEAVY winter parkas that I've been wearing - you know, the kind of coat that immediately overheats you when you go into a store, to the point you have to take it off. ARGH. I have been on the hunt for a lightweight yet warm winter coat for a couple of years. Nothing has been what I wanted. So this year I did a google search and was led right to this coat. I can't say enough good about this coat. The lack of weight is amazing for a knee length winter coat. The inside has the Omni-heat lining that is reflective material that uses your own body heat to warm you but still allows the coat to be incredibly light. The arms have a cuff that includes a thumb hole at the end which I imagine is handy for some people. I'm not one of those people, but it is not necessary to use the thumb holes at all. The cuff is stretchy enough to stay pretty tight around your wrist and prevents wind from moving up the arm hole. The coat is attractive, too. I bought black and I get nothing but compliments on it. The only problem with the coat is the hood, which is not able to be made tighter. It's still a good hood, but it is not something to keep the ears as warm as it could with the somewhat loose hood. I love this coat so much that when Black Friday came around (two weeks after I bought the coat) I ordered another one in another color for myself. I'm a person that falls in love with a shoe or a product and then if I don't buy another, they usually get discontinued and I'm out of luck. Not this time - I will be more than ready for a bunch of long winters in these coats. As far as sizing, I can wear an XL or a 1X in most everything but I followed other reviewers advice and got the next size up. It fits perfectly and I still have some room in case I wear a sweater or something more bulky on top. Love the coat - it gets the highest of recommends from me. December 10, 2014
Warm I love that it's light weight and keeps me warm. December 9, 2014
warm so far I ordered this in a 2x based on the reviews which said it ran small, it was to big. I normally wear a 1x so I say it runs true to size. I have only worn it for 2 days and they were both in the 30's it did seem to keep me warm and toasty. I always look for a thin but warm coat since the Chicago winters are cold and hopefully this will fit the bill. December 4, 2014
Perfect This jacket is so very light weight. It is like a miracle space suit! It is SO warm. I put it to the true test looking at property in Northern Minnesota when the wind chills were -30. I was not cold at all with NO layering under the jacket. I wore it shopping in Minneapolis which was a bad move because I got very over heated in the stores. I love the look of this jacket and it is super warm. December 4, 2014
Overall amazing coat I'm a bigger girl and I love that I could actually find a longer coat to fit me. It's light weight but does a great job of keeping me warm. I'm located in Michigan so it's functions well in our up and down temperatures of winter this far. I'm happy with the product over all, however the built in hand cuffs with the thumb holes I wish were removable. They're thin enough fabric that I push them back into my sleeves and wear my own gloves. Great coat and love the two way zipper! December 3, 2014
2X Black i'm 5'3" 200 lbs all belly. Some of the other long coats made me even more round... this was a perfect 2X for me. It has plenty of room for an extra sweater, but i'm fine without one. It's not the warmest coat for our cold Chicago Winters but for me it's perfect since I already own Columbia's short puffer coat which is easier to drive!! November 30, 2014
Warm but sizing is a little off Great coat, will definitely keep you warm. Only issue I had was the sizing. I purchased the 3X so that I could wear bulky sweaters, for the most part the fit was ok, but the arms were tight & just made it uncomfortable to wear. Ended up returning & going with a different brand. If there were a 4X, I might have exchanged. November 27, 2014
Love the length! I just got this in the mail today. I have been anticipating it all week, and based on reviews I didn't know if it would work or not. 1) very lightweight 2) I can move easily in it 3) I took my measurements and could have actually gone down a size. It's a little big but not worth returning 4) of course it was snowing last week and now it's 40 degrees but so far it's been great- true test will come later I'm sure November 24, 2014
Excellent Product Everything about this jacket is perfect. The description is exactly what it is so there were no surprises when I received it.its functional comfortable and even fashionable as I wear it with career clothes as well as casual jeans and boots. I love the quill color and the length is perfect. With the omni heat lining it is amazingly warm without the bulk and I absolutely love that feature. November 23, 2014
Over Promised and Under Delivered I bought this coat based on reviews and the fact it is supposed to keep warm. I walk my dogs twice a day, every day, winter, summer, spring, fall, no matter how cold. Let me start by saying I'm in the midst of menopause and I've got plenty of body heat. I don't even sleep with blankets half the time. I felt like I was walking around naked and afraid. There was no heat to be had, no protection from the wind or cold. The only good thing about this coat are the thumb holes so I didn't have zero degree winds blowing up my arms. I think about the only time of year this coat would be good might be early spring. I wouldn't recommend this coat if you're trying to stay warm. Even with layers, it's not going to do the trick. It will be returned tomorrow. November 20, 2014
Has what it takes! I was not sure this coat would be warm enough for a Minnesota winter, but since it came early I found out! Love this coat. The length was what hooked me but I find it plenty warm too. I agree with another review that it helps to wear the coat a couple minutes before you go out. I am getting compliments on the fit too! November 20, 2014
OK coat if you're not in super cold climate I like the way this jacket fits, except for the hood. It fills up with wind and blows off. It would be great if it had an adjustable cord inside. We haven't had too many days below 30 yet, but I suspect this jacket won't do me much good under 20, especially if it is windy. Columbia didn't offer any temperature range with this product so I took a chance. I will still enjoy this jacket for a few months of the year, and maybe when I'm skiing or snowshoeing, but I will need to find something warmer for everyday wear December-February. November 13, 2014
good concept, needs some tweaks Wear a 16-18. purchased the 2x based upon reviews saying runs small (I found otherwise). I was going to return for smaller size. Then, gave test: In very unsheltered area, 27 degrees w 30mph consistent wind, while wearing light shirt... I felt wind come right through the jacket. I think it may be better with a wool sweater or something. But, for this price I would expect it should handle a bitter fall day. Not quite! Size: Top area, shoulders above chest fit ok despite being much larger than my size. But the waist and hips bell way out. So, maybe runs small up high and true to size (way too big for me) down further (and I have a gut). Was going to return for smaller size but, after stood in wind... feeling disappointed. It would not handle below zero without really good bottome layer(s). Loose Hood has no adjustment mechanism. So is more for over other hats scarves. Blows off. The lightweight fabric and breathable concept is great! So it's sad to part with because it was exactly what I thought I had been looking for (and still am) breathable,hood, not too short. in plus size. November 10, 2014
Very Cold in MN I purchased this jacket based on reviews that were from customers that live in cold states. I am from MN and after reading positive comments I thought this was the jacket for me. However, I was greatly disappointed after only wearing this jacked once on a 38 degree day with wind that made the temperature feel like 28 degrees this should not be considered a winter jacket for cold regions of the United States. I could feel the wind blowing through the jacket. Luckily I brought along a fleece jacket and changed and I was much warmer wearing just a fleece than the supposed winter jacket. If this jacket does not keep you warm on a 38 degree day, I am not sure how it would do on a -38 degree day that we have in MN. November 8, 2014
I love this coat I'm so happy that I found the coat that I like it so warm and comfortable I'll be ordering some more stuff soon November 8, 2014
Great Jacket!!! I was stressed this jacket wouldn't fit after reading reviews,but I found it was true to size. I could even fit layers under it. This jacket is so warm, and it's not super bulky and heavy. I am obsessed with it and can't wait to wear it more. Thanks so much for making a quality plus size jacket! November 7, 2014
This coat is okay I bought this coat to wear when I travel to North Dakota in a few weeks. I wanted something long that would keep me warm in very cold temperatures. I am 5'0" tall and I normally wear a size 18. I had been reading the reviews that the size ran small so I initially ordered a 3X. It was huge on me so I returned it for a 2X. This was a good fit and I would have been able to do some layering underneath if I wanted too. My complaint with the coat is that it was a little too lightweight. I wore it outside here in Texas when it was just a little chilly with the wind blowing and I felt like it did not keep me warm. Also, the arms were too long. I really liked the thumb hole feature in the sleeves. If the sleeves fit right that would have been perfect for keeping my wrists warm after putting on gloves. The pockets were too low for me as well. With my short arms only my fingers fit inside the pockets when I was standing up. I ended up returning the 2X as well. October 11, 2014
Great jacket! I ordered this jacket because I wanted a black hooded jacket that was a longer length. I don't like the one put out by another popular company because it's so bulky. This one has a much cuter shape and also has thumbholes in the cuff. It's a very thin material, but seems quite warm. I live in New England, and I think it will work out really well. I should say that I'm typically a 14/16 (L/XL) in clothes, but I find that Columbia runs tight through the hips. If you have hips and are around that size, I recommend ordering the 1X. It may be a bit roomy in the chest, but otherwise it's wonderful. August 31, 2014
awesome jacket I love this long jacket. It is the lightest and warmest jacket I have ever owned. The thumb holes are very handy and keep the sleeves down so well, I hardly need to wear gloves. I purchased this jacket in the "dark purple" color and find it is very flattering. December 17, 2013
Nice Jacket This jacket is pretty nice. It was not as thick as I was expecting. It would not make a good winter coat. It is a light jacket. I like how it is longer than most jackets. Columbia makes a good product. It was just not what I was expecting. That was my fault for not reading more about this product before purchasing. I am still happy I have it to add to my jacket/coat collection. I am still in the market for a nice warm winter coat though. November 29, 2013
Great Jacket!! I have had this jacket for about two weeks now and I LOVE IT!! It is so comfy that I find myself wearing it all the time. Not bulky at all but still very warm. I really like this jacket because when I wear it, I don't get overly warm in it. It helps just regulate my normal body temp. I also really like thumb holes in the cuffs. Overall a great buy!!!! November 24, 2013
Winter in North Dakota..... The jacket keeps the warmth in and the cold out as advertised... You can really feel the omni-heat kicking in when you start moving- I like to put mine on a few minutes before heading out the door to warm up the air inside the coat. You'll want to wear a hat under the hood to take up some of the extra space. I love the length, keeps my bum warm!!! Had it for a week and a 3 inch stretch of seam on the right sleeve just opened up... I stitched it closed myself and it looks fine. Some of the threads on the stitching overall fray and look a little bit ragged, but other than than, the coat works and feels great! Super light, slimming, and I can wear a light work blouse underneath, I don't have to layer at all... YAY! November 21, 2013
Women's Mighty Lite Hooded Jacket Omni -Heat thermal reflective lining and insulation is everything they proclaim. Watching a soccer game on top of a hill in 30 degree temperature with whipping winds was the test to prove how very good their product is. I am enjoying the jacket. November 21, 2013
Great Jacket Wore this for the first time today(sub-freezing & windy this morning) and it was great! Love the warmth without bulk or weight.... Omni-Heat is the BEST! It does seem to run small and the style is 'fitted'; I returned my first purchase and re-ordered 1 size larger and the fit is comfortable and roomy enough for a sweater. I'll probably order the short jacket and vest soon. November 20, 2013
love my coat Great coat light but very warm.omi heat is great November 15, 2013
Women's Mighty Lite extended size It feels a little small but that could be because it's a form fitting coat and I'm used to looser coats. I love the feel of the coat it is so soft and light! Have had many complements on the look. Very fast shipping. November 13, 2013
Love this jacket! I ordered this jacket in navy blue (abyss) and love it! It is very lightweight and the fit is very flattering. It is a rather fitted style so if you wear bulky or thick sweaters you should probably order a size up. I wear very thin sweaters and shirts so I stuck with my size. I cannot believe how warm it is considering how light and thin it seems. Great jacket! November 13, 2013
I love this jacket!!! I had the shorter version but it was stolen...and thank goodness, I love this longer length and fit so much more!!! November 10, 2013
Awesome, I never write reviews but this coat is fabulous, it was my goto coat last winter. Looks great with leggings and boots. November 6, 2013
Perfection! My oldest daughter started Kindergarten this year and as the cold weather/wind moved in I discovered that my wool peacoat, while nice and cute, was not going to suffice while I stood at the bus stop each morning/afternoon. So I set out to find the perfect coat. I initially decided I wanted a 3-in-1 type coat but after trying one on in store and discovering how bulky it was I quickly changed my mind. So I came home and started looking online and until I came across this one, I didn't think my "perfect coat" existed. I wanted something lightweight but would also keep me dry and very warm - I found it in this coat! I wasn't home when it arrived and my husband said he had to open it because he didn't believe a coat was inside. He also didn't believe that something so lightweight and thin would be very warm so he tested it out...he said he now hates his 3-in-1 and wants to purchase a male version of this coat. November 6, 2013
Not Another Jacket Gearing up for cold temps at my bus stop and Metrorail. The design is innovative as Omni-tech that I can anticipate to stay toasty and dry. October 14, 2013
Perfect Warmth - Soft as a Bunny !! This jacket is the very best !! I ordered the 3x in Quill and it is delightful and met my every expectation. The quality is exceptional. It is soft when you put it on, there is no "crackly" feel or sound to the polyester, it is like the down filled jackets. Very lightweight. The package was so light I didn't think a jacket was in there. It feels just as light when you wear it. The purple is a deep rich dark purple, not cheap looking or too bright. It is a perfect 3x, runs true to size. Sleeves fit well. The zipper works from the top and the bottom. The hood is ok, I wish it laid down a little flatter, but I think it will with time. Nice secret inside pocket on the left big enough for cell phone or keys. Fleece lined hand pockets also. It is so lightweight that it does not restrict your arms when driving or loading groceries in the car. Very flexible and soft. You can feel the Omni Heat working. I love it. If you are trying to decide, should I buy it or not, the answer is YES, you should get it !! You will love it. I am excited about winter now !! October 7, 2013
