Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING I absolutely love this jacket. It is my favorite. Very lightweight and warm! May 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best. Jacket. Ever. This is the best jacket I've ever seen, worn or bought. It's so light weight that when I first got it I was skeptical it would keep me warm but the omni-heat keeps you ridiculously warm, even during a blizzard. The water proof exterior is fantastic for snow or rain. The pockets fully zip so you don't lose anything, it even has a hidden interior pocket. The longer length is great and the zipper zips up from the bottom too so you don't lose circulation when you sit. The jacket rolls up so small that I can fit it into my purse, it's the PERFECT travel jacket. It's even machine washable! Buy it, you won't regret it. The jacket does run really small however. I usually wear an XS in shirts, small in jackets, and I had to buy a size medium to be able to layer a light sweater underneath. So size up. April 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Coat I bought an XL because another reviewer said it ran very, very small and she said she had to go up 2 sizes. I normally wear a medium, so I got the XL. Way, way too big. I think the L would have been fine (I was worried about wearing sweaters underneath and being comfortable.) Of course they were sold out so I got another, slightly more expensive coat, which I like. However, when I shipped this back, you have to pay your own shipping and it was an extra $12! I thought that was absurd. What company charges to return ship something anymore? In the future I will purchase the Columbia products from Amazon, where return shipping is free. Amazon seems to have the same products for the same prices, even the sales. March 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! Haven't used another jacket since I bought this one. Much lighter than the navy my friend has, they must have updated the color, but still very pretty. Very classy and lightweight which is perfect for wearing around everywhere and the office. You definitely need to be walking around to activate the omni-heat otherwise it's not very effective strolling down the street in a 45 degree sunny day with blistering wind; only set back I was disappointed with. March 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Coat I bought this coat at the end of the season so I'm not sure how warm it will be in -20 weather. It's extremely light, a great length and not bulky. I bought the small and it is quite fitted, which is what I wanted...I'm 5'7" and 140 lbs. The blue is nice and so far it seems good for the money. March 26, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Maine winter coat I found the price excellent w/ my purchase. Living in Maine, winters can be brutal & I found this coat to be very warm even on blustery days. I will admit as the others have (that's why I gave it four stars) I wish the hood had some type of Velcro or pull string to keep it from falling off your head. I'm anxious for summer but happy knowing I have this great coat for next winter too. I'm 5'8", 180 lbs & the large fits nicely. March 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazingly light, warm jacket This jacket is unbelievably light and easy to move in! It's a bit fitted so you can tell you're actually a female in the coat, and it's so well thought out: inside pocket, thumbholes, zipper pockets, double center zipper... But if I could add a couple things: pull or snap to keep the hood on and snug, and a pull at the bottom for when it's REALLY cold. This jacket will keep you warm into the 30's, 20's or below with some warm layers. It warms up within a minute if you put it on cold. ***If you wash it DO NOT dry it. Mine melted a bit and I was devastated - on medium heat for just 20 minutes WITH other items! But I happily bought another, plus the down-filled version, and will NOT dry them at all going forward! March 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by wiseshoper Jacket was purchased for my daughter, she LOVES it. The jacket is so lite weight it's unbelievable just how warm it keeps her. The purple color is pretty. Suggestion; add velcro fasteners to the base of the hood to assist in keeping it on. Dress lite when wearing this jacket you can become "hot" easily, even during cold weather. March 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great!!! I love this jacket!!! Nice and warm. I wore it throughout a weekend with > -20 degrees; with a long sleeve shirt and sweatshirt under it and I was very comfortable. A little roomy so I can wear a sweatshirt if I want and be comfortable. Does run a little small, but I read the previous reviews so I knew before I ordered. The only suggestion I would have is there needs to be a drawstring in the hood. It is wide, I think so you could wear a hat and scarf comfortable but there is no way to tighten it. March 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Classy coat This is a classy coat, sharp for everyday use. The material feels very silky & is fine for chilly weather, though a little tight for wearing sweaters underneath. My main problem was the 1st one I ordered was L & it was too small. XL wasn't available in purple, but Customer Service was very helpful & tracked down an XL through Amazon--delivery was prompt & I am delighted with the jacket. February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by terrific winter coat! Love it!!! I have to say this is the warmest, lightest coat I have ever owned!! Would recommend to anyone wanting a light weight longer coat! So happy with my purchase! February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight, Warm Comfort I have never been a person that likes wearing a coat due to how heavy they can be so I was looking for a coat that was lightweight yet warm. I have been very pleased with the comfort and warmth of this coat! February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and warm I usually only get black jackets. I decided to go for the trade winds Grey. It's a little out of my comfort zone and not exactly the color I was expected. The coat is also shinier than I expected. I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it so I left the tags on for a few days. I live in New England and the two weeks I've had it the temps have been from 20-40 degrees, and my body was always comfortable so I did decide to keep it. It's light and easy to carry a bunch of stuff while wearing it (I'm a commuting student in Boston.). I ordered a M thinking the jacket would be a little big and that was okay. It is big up top, not too big, but around my hips are a little snug. I'm 5'2 and about 140 athletic build. If I went a size down to accommodate my upper body, I would have ripped the bottoms. I wish the top was a little smaller. February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small but mighty! A great coat! It's nice and light for the car or while running errands and going from the store to the vehicle where you'd be too hot/uncomfortable wearing a bulky coat but it's warm enough for the hockey arena! I don't use it as my 'playing outside' winter coat, but if you wore layers you could. I love that it has a bottom zipper so you can sit comfortably. February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome jacket The is a awesome jacket February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat I love this coat. Lightweight and warm without bulk. February 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! This is easily my favourite coat of all time! Weighs next to nothing, yet keeps me warm even in frigid temperatures. And yet, I can wear it while shopping in the mall and not get over-heated. Best purchase ever! February 23, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product was true to description Coat is exactly how described, lightweight but so warm and comfy. Love the color also! February 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mighty Lite Coat I purchased the mighty Lite Coat for my adult niece for her birthday. I was worried it was too thin when it came. My niece decided to wear it on a 8 degree day. She only had a t-shirt under the coat. She said she was sweating as she walked to work in downtown Chicago. I love Columbia gear. That's the only gifts I give. February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Senior This coat is great. As a senior and beginning to struggle with carrying heavy and bulky items, this coat is perfect, not only is it lightweight, completely functional and provides all the warmth I need it is very easy to maintain and carry wherever I go. Based on material and quality of product I do not believe I will need to purchase another coat for many years. Thank you Columbia for surpassing my expectations. February 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best buy I ever made This coat is the lightest, warmest, sweat proof coat I ever bought for the cold weather here in Chicago. I love it. Columbia is the best. February 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I can not believe how thin yet warm this coat is. Bought this for work in a negative degree environment. Worn with an under armour base shirt and a thermal I stay amazingly warm. I do think I could have ordered a small (I'm 5'7" and 140#) but I wanted to be able to layer. I love this coat. It does everything I need and it's super cute. February 17, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by The Hood The look of this jacket is very deceiving and makes you think it will not be warm but it definitely is. This jacket is great for anyone using public transportation. The bad part is the hood is horrible. There's no way to tighten it so the wind always blows it straight off. In -8° weather my body was extremely warm but wished the hood stayed on. February 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Beautiful, lightweight and so warm... love Columbia February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this coat! I am beyond pleased with this coat, which I bought on the recommendation of a friend. I living in South Carolina, it is perfect unzipped for our mild winters and it just got me through a week of 7 degree weather in Chicago. It is conveniently fits in my cross body bag and although it is warm, it isn't too heavy. February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME! I love my Columbia coat! It is light weight but yet so warm. I don't like wearing a coat while driving because they are so bulky but this one is different! I would recommend this coat to anyone!! I have 2 of these coats, 2 vests, one waist length coat. Trust me, if these would not do the job I expected, I would only have one coat! I have a total of five Columbia Mighty lite Omni Heat coats/vests! Love them!! February 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and Warm I LOVE my jacket. Fits perfectly! It's super light material so it's not bulky. I am never cold with this jacket even in -20 weather. Shipping was super speedy. I ordered the jacket and got it two days later. Excellent product!! February 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfort I like the length and how thin this coat is. I thougth it would feel funny with the Omni Heat lining but I do not notice it. February 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THIS COAT! I'm 5'4", 110# and the S fit perfectly with room for a sweater or hoodie underneath. I wear this for long walks and errands. Could not be happier with the coat as it keeps my legs and bum covered and toasty, plus my torso. I'm in Western NC where winters are not bad but I'm amazed at the warmth for such a light jacket. Love the thumb feature, color - EVERYTHING! February 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs small ! A friend had this coat and loves it. This coat is very thin, but the technology keeps you warm in that your own body heat reflects against the Hi Tech liner to keep you warm. The light weight is great. SIZE: It runs SMALL. I wear a size 10 dress and had to get an X Large, and another size up may have been better. The design is made for a "stick figure" not a female with curves; another reason to go to larger size, othewise it will fit in the shoulder but you can't zip it around the hips. The sleeves are the correct width in the upper arm but tapers narrower towards the wrist, which I don't understand. Tight squeeze if you have on a shirt and a sweat shirt or sweater. I am 5'5" and the length goes to the top of my knees, which I wanted. I'm very happy with the coat and the blue looks even better than the web picture. The zipper can go up to your chin, and the zipper does not touch your skin. Pockets that zip on each side. CONS: stick figure sizing; hood does not have draw strings, sleeves are too narrow. Another pocket for a cell phone would be handy. February 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by looks nice I'm 5'3" 34"D 30"waist. Bought the XL, sleeves a little long, otherwise fits perfect. Can add sweater for days under 45 degrees. Bought this coat for cold mornings walking the dog without the dogs hair sticking to me. Love bluebell color. February 7, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cold in Minnesota I was disappointed that this jacket wasn't warmer. Bought the jacket while temps were in the 20s, and it wasn't warm enough without wearing layers underneath. Primarily, I'm outside to and from work. As we tend to get below zero, this jacket would not be warm enough for me. I'm disappointed. The upside is that I did get warmer the more I walked so the lining does reflect heat. But the jacket did little to keep the cold out. It does block wind, which is essential here. For early winter or late spring when temps are in the 40s, then it would probably be fine. So, for now, the jacket will stay in the closet until it is warm enough to wear. February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bought for my sister and she is hooked on Columbia What jacket for my sister after she had purchased a north face jacket and the Northface jacket was a lot more cheaply made she got the Jack in about a week ago and has already purchased two more Columbia jackets because the quality is so good February 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by light bug warm Purchased for my daughter, she really likes her jacket, very light warm, the only thing was that she was wanting the purple color. But im a true beliver of Columbia i have 3 Columbia coats and ski pants, stands by itself for durability, warmth, size.. February 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by WINTER coat I have the shorter version Kaleidescape which is warmer and better made or was. Have had it for years so wanted a longer one for warmth and still light weight. This seems cheaper made which was a bummer. Got a good price so that helps. I am 5'6 125 and normally wear a small but got a medium which I have room in shoulders to wear sweaters. February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mighty Lite Hooded Jacket I purchased this for my 21 year old daughter, she loves it! Keeps her warm walking between classes on her college campus, fits perfectly and she likes the way it looks as well. February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Buyer's remorse!!! Was first introduced to this coat a year ago....bought one for my (almost) 94 year old mother. Every other coat feels too heavy for her and your coat is so-o-o warm as well as lightweight. I then bought one for myself and last month gave it to a visiting friend....then promptly ordered another one for myself. I would say I'm downright "evangelistic" about this coat...can't say enough good things about it...washes perfectly, easy to roll up and pack. Oh....took my wheelchair bound father to the movies and rolled up my coat to give him more neck support. You have created a MUST HAVE coat! Very impressed! Charlene February 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by love at first sight This coat rocks. I had been looking for a longer winter coat, but didn't want to pay $300 for a North Face. It is super thin so I don't LOOK like a marshmallow, but the omni-heat keeps me nice and toasty so I feel like the perfect s'more<3 It works great for outdoor activities like snowshoeing, or just walking to my car. Seriously, the perfect coat to survive a brisk MN winter while still looking awesome. (not to mention it's a great price for an awesome quality) February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect coat!!! This coat is amazingly lightweight and warm!!!! I was looking for a coat that didn't weigh much as I will be traveling with a lot of clothes as it is. The length and fit is perfect for at 5'9", 160lb. person. January 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I tried this coat on in a store last fall, but didn't buy until January - why did I wait so long?? It is warm without being stuffy, and fits very nicely. The Nocturnal (dark blue) color is just different enough from black that I don't need to worry about mistaking my coat for someone else's. The sleeves are plenty long and the pockets are deep (although they are placed a bit lower than I'd expect). I bought a L, which is what I wear in Nike gear, but I'm usually an M in regular clothes. January 30, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mighty-Lite Hooded Jacket I thought this jacket would keep me warm while I'm outside walking the dog in cold (15 - 35 degrees) temperatures. However, it does not. Did not send it back because I'd removed the tags. Never dreamed it would do such a poor job. I like the color, and it looks nice, but it doesn't keep me warm. January 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cak Just what I wanted. Great warmth, not bulky, without down! January 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Womans Mighty Lite Hooded Jacket This jacket is exactly what I was looking for . It is so light and comfortable and at the same time amazingly warm and comfortable!! I got it just before some of the coldest days in January so it really got put to the test . It is hard to believe something so light can be so warm. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Jacket Ever This jacket is amazing because it is very light and keeps me warm. I actually bought a second one for a back-up. I hope Columbia will make this exact design as a soft shell for the spring!! It is tailored VERY nicely. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Might Lite is a great jacket! Love this jacket. The hood is a bit large but is functional in Michigan Winter wind. I find I unzip to cool off it has been freezing and below and this coat works well. I can even wear a fleece underneath if needed. I have not needed it. January 25, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wrong This is not a coat for the winter.Very thin 6mm January 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it My new coat is warm, lightweight and very comfortable. Best of all it is a lovely shade of (navy) blue! January 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Love it..I am amazed how thin it is, yet how warm. January 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by One Cold Mom Love this jacket. I work in a higher elevation where it tends to be super windy. Rainy or snowy. My previous winter snow jacket just wasn't cutting it. I tried out a friends jacket with the omni heat and decided to purchase one. This jacket is light weighted and really keeps you warm. I wear mine with a light sweater underneath and that's all I need. True to size. Looking into buying more. Only thing I wish it had was a drawstring on the hood. Other than that good product. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmth without bulk When I received my coat, I thought "this isn't going to keep me warm." Was I ever surprised, warmth without bulk. I am very pleased with the coat and would highly recommend it. January 21, 2016
