Women’s Mighty Lite™ Hooded Jacket is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 507.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty Light Jacket I had bought this coat 2 years ago in Black and still have it. It is the warmest, lightest coat that I have ever owned. I saw that it now came in Gray and could not resist ordering it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket I bought it for a trip to Europe this December, so I haven’t had the chance to try it on cold weather. However when I tried it on I inmediatly felt the Omni Heat technology working. I also love that is not heavy at all, very light, so it’s great for traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Coat I had the shorter version of this coat for 4 years, and it was amazing! Very lightweight but warm. At first I thought it was too thin, but it got my through several Minnesota winters! It is great because I could fit another sweater under it if it were cold, but by itself it was not too hot for changing seasons. I also liked that it was versitle for everything from errands, to outdoor activities, to church! I got many compliments on its classic simplicity. I am excited to wear the longer version of it now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim fitting alternative to down puffer coat I was looking for an alternative to a huge, puffer down filled coat. This coat is a great option. It is slim fitting, long enough, and has a hood. While I haven't had the chance to wear it in the winter yet, I do own the short jacket version of the Mighty Lite and that one certainly keeps you warm. I've worn my shorter Mighty Lite on backpacking trips at elevation to keep warm, and while running in 25-30 degree weather. Be warned that Mighty Lite jackets seem to warm up using your own body heat and the inner reflective coating, so they are not instantly warm like a down puffer coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functionality is great, look is average If you are looking for something super fashionable, this is not it. This is a coat for the people who live in the brutal winters, who just need a coat that's functional. Don't get me wrong the coat looks good on, but it's something I would wear to a fancy banquet or dinner party. The true purpose of it is to get you through your city winter walks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome jacket! I will be needing the jacket for this coming winter to visit family in PA. The jacket is lightweight and pretty thin but well insulated. perfect for traveling and packing it in the suit case. you are able to move around super easy without all the bulk. I had to exchange to a size larger. I am normally a size Large however the jacket fit a bit snug and I wouldn't be able to layer at all with it. SIDE NOTE: customer service is always AMAZING when I call and so helpful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this in summer but can't wait for winter! My sister owns this jacket and loves it. I was looking for a longer jacket to cover my bum and it needed to be warm. I do live in Wyoming after all. I love that it's hooded as well. I tried it on after I received it and it's snug in a good way! I was wearing a thicker cardigan when I tried it on and it was very comfortable. I sat down and it felt good. Didn't pull in any areas. It looks pretty professional for not being a wool jacket as well. I'm 5'7" and 135 lbs. I ordered a small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Form Fitting Light Weight Warm Jacket Fabulous form fitting light weight warm jacket. Perfect for driving. Arms are long and cuffs tight. I'm 5'8" and ordered the small, it is a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed I needed a new coat for walking between classes at College in the winter so I decided to but this coat. Ohio winters can get really cold. It is perfect for college students. the length keeps the top of your legs and your torso warm. The coat is not thick making it easier to maneuver in, but the insulation keeps you warm and toasty. I also got a wonderful deal on the coat making it more appealing. I would defiantly buy this coat again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have owned the short version of this jacket for 2 years and wear it often all year (in Alaska where there are significant temperature differences between the seasons). I'm looking forward to using this jacket often as well. It's just what I was hoping for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight but Warm This is the perfect jacket for traveling, it can fold down to practically nothing but still provides warmth. I am 5'10 and 130 lbs the small fits me nicely....the sleeves could be a bit longer but the inner sleeve makes it ok, I just don't use the thumb holes or would pull. It's long and lean with fabulous zip pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter coat I bought this coat ~2 years ago and have worn it almost daily for two winters. Despite being very light and thin, I find that when walking the lining does an excellent job of keeping you warm - even when it's -40! Love this coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4th Mighty Lite I saw this jacket on a woman in a story in a brutally wet, cold and windy day in February in Houston. Came home, ordered it. Loved it so much I ordered it in another color. Then one for my daughter-in-law. Two friends saw mine and bought one. Just got one for my granddaughter. So very warm on the soccer field. Light weight. Easy to pack.Love the pockets and hand extension on the sleeves. Warm and cute at the same time. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great go-to coat This coat packs a lot of positives into a very light weight. It is somewhat surprising that this coat keeps one as warm as it does, but it does the job keeping your body heat in and the cold wind out. Living on the norther shore of Lake Michigan tests this time and again. The longer length contributes to the warmth factor while still being comfortable to work outside and ride in a car. I am also pleased that the arm length is appropriate for a taller person with the thumb hole cuffs being a nice extra for those very cold days. I bought this coat to replace one just like it that I wore out. It is my "go to" for everything in the winter months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lite Hooded Jacket (Chalk) I ordered this jacket preparing for fall/winter months. I am hopeful it will serve its purpose of keeping me warm being a very light jacket. I do love the color and the way it fits, especially the hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I absolutely love this jacket, the fit is perfect and best of all its so warm without being puffy. I would recommend this jacket to anyone :) (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I just love this jacket! I was looking for jacket that would be good for this crazy weather that we get in March and April, when you do not know what to wear because temperature goes up and down by 10-15 degrees, and this jacket is just perfect! It is light, very thin, and still warm. Love the hood in the windy & rainy days, and I got it in red colour. It is nice and bright! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat Love this coat - I bought a second one for when the first one wears out but so far it is still in great shape - washes well, comfortable in many temperatures - super light weight but still warm.
Date published: 2017-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second one I bought this coat 4-5 years ago. But, after losing close to 20 pounds I had to give it to my mother. I was very happy to find this website and get a second one for a pretty decent price since it was on sale. The color is gorgeous. It is warm enough to wear it at -10 C. I usually wear it between February and April and again in the Fall during the colder days. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Spring and Fall coat! Although this coat is very lightweight, it is warm and breaks the wind nicely. I'm using it for spring walks and it's perfect. The hood stays up when you put it on and adds to the comfort. Surprisingly warm lightweight jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this jacket I have had ++++ compliments on this jacket. Love the color. Price is right. Light as a feather. Great for all activities. This is a fall to late fall jacket, not for cold weather.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too snug, too thin I ordered the Mighty Lite in Chalk, size M. I'm 5'7", wear size 6/8 in clothing and have always worn a medium in jackets, no matter the brand. When I zipped the jacket, the fit was very snug through the hip area. (You could call it the 'skinny jeans' of jackets.) I also did not like the thin outer material of the jacket. My challenge with this purchase is that it was for a future trip to an extremely cold climate and I had to make the judgement to return it now and get something with a better fit and slightly thicker material. I need to be able to layer clothing and have a jacket with a comfortable fit.
Date published: 2017-03-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in Every Way! I love this coat! Beautiful color--"chalk"--off white. It does fit a touch snug so I ordered the medium and it fits perfect. I'm 5'3" and 125. Very lightweight but warm and very comfortable! I have ordered 4 coats from Columbia Sportswear during the winter sale. I have been very pleased with every one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope Finding a winter coat that doesn't make me look like the Stay Puft marshmallow man isn't easy. I have settled for big, bulky coats in the past, just because I need the warmth in the cold Indiana winters. I picked up this coat with high hopes. And honestly, I think it may be functional if you're constantly moving (walking in the city, etc.), generating heat. If not, it's basically useless. It's not windproof and it doesn't create its own heat. It's essentially a thin jacket with a liner that keeps heat as long as you generate it. I don't live in a city where I'm constantly moving. I'm only running from my car into the store, and vice versa. So I found this coat to be lacking quite a bit. I don't recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Winter Jacket My daughter love this Jacket not only it is light weight but it is also water resistant. It keeps her going from school to the bus! Definitely a great alternative for a sweater

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat I absolutely love this coat! I always wear jackets, so I was looking for a coat that was lightweight, comfortable, kept me warm and looked great. The WOMEN’S MIGHTY LITE™ HOODED JACKET surpassed all my expectations!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE it but some zipper troubles I really love the length, the warmth, the color and almost everything about this jacket. The only thing that I would want other buyers to be aware of is the zipper can be a pain in the butt. It is fine sometimes and I thought it just needed to be used more but it can get irritating. It works, it is just hard to get started.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning The other down coats make you look like an overstuffed tomato. I got the eggplant in extra small and it is stunning-the perfect length, warm, slim in profile and almost like a perfect dress. The sleeve feature that keeps the water in at the cuff works great. I like internal thumb hooks. Perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as warm as I expected. I was hoping this jacket was as warm as a shorter version I had bought years ago. It was not as warm. It has the same reflective lining and is just as light but something is different because it is definitely not as warm.
Date published: 2017-02-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's fine, really Maybe I'm out of touch but I thought there would be more to this coat for the money. It's a bit thin; not sure it would serve in lower temps but I haven't had an opportunity to test that. It's nice looking and very light so overall, I'm satisfied.
Date published: 2017-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat Fits perfect. I'm 5'5" & 130 and I got a medium so it would fit comfortably over bulky sweaters & sweatshirts. It fits perfect. It's not bulky and extremely warm, which I am please about. I have the red and it's pretty bright definitely a vibrant red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new jacket I was looking for a lightweight hooded jacket for colder weather. Both the shorter hip length mighty lites and the longer jackets were options I was open to. All of the mighty lites I tried were more fitted but I still chose my normal size of medium. Just keep in mind that being more fitted, each size may be perceived to be running a little small. In the end, this jacket's longer length, hood with no fur liner and comfort cuffs with thumb holes (Love!) were the big plusses for me with this jacket. Happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy Jacket This jacket is a bit snug, but perfect for looking cute and staying warm.
Date published: 2017-02-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not true to size These jackets are not true to size. In order to get one to fit around the chest it is too big everywhere else and too long. I usually wear a medium. This is the second size I ordered in the same jacket and they just don't fit right! Very disappointed and need to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat for the high country. I'm 5.2 and 97lbs and have a hard time finding a coat that is not too big, long, or long in the sleeves. This coat fits perfect and is great for driving and walking to work. Great color too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survived Iceland & Finland I was really worried about how thing this coat was, as I was purchasing it for a trip to Iceland and Finland. It was no problem at all. In fact the Omni-heat worked a little TOO well and I had to zipper down the collar to get a little air. I was out in the rain, wind and sleet, without an umbrella, and managed to stay dry. I do wish that there was a little more room in the hip area as women tend to have these things. I ordered a Large, but an XL would have been too big on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit for XS! I'm 5'3 and 110, I bought the XS and it fits perfectly! The arms are a tad bit long, but that's fine with me. I wear a Small in some other Columbia jackets I have, but I think the small would have been way to large for me for this jacket. I found it fit well over my bust as well (US size 32g), which can be tricky at times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Coat - Keeps you warm Dealing with Michigan winters, this coat is great. Light in weight, thin and keeps you warm for running in and out of the car/house. If you're moving around outdoors, the insulation serves it's purpose of keeping you warm. I purchased a small in the purple dahlia color coat and get many compliments. I love the thumb holes, as well. My only recommendation is that the sleeve (w the thumb hole) be extended a little more. It pulls when I do use the thumb hole...often times making it uncomfortable.
Date published: 2017-01-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Winter Coat Bought this coat for walking in winter weather. Fits the bill. Keeps the thighs covered from the wind. I love the hand covers. The coat is thin, not a puffer, but the reflective lining does the trick. Good for temps down to the 20's with a sweater underneath. I miss having snaps along the zipper placket. This is a nice feature on other coats when I just want a quick closure without zipping the entire coat and then unzipping from below -- but I really like having the two-way zipper.
