Women’s Mighty Lite™ Hooded Jacket 4.5 5 144 144
Lite with Might I wore this coat for some snow shoveling and was extremely warm and comfortable. February 6, 2014
Great so Far I've only had the chance to wear this about 5 times but so far, it's awesome. I was taken aback when I first took it out because it is so thin and so light but there hasn't been a time when I've walked out and felt cold (It's been between 5 and 25°). The cuffs with the thumb holes are so clutch! Perfect to put gloves over because your wrists and arms don't get cold and you don't have to worry about getting snow on you. About the sizing- I'm a 6/8 and the medium is a little snug. I can fit a sweatshirt under but I don't think I could wear a bunch of layers...but then again you don't need to wear a ton of layers with this. Got the purple and it's so pretty! There is a very subtle plaid design which I was surprised about but you can't notice it unless you're looking at it up close under light/it's more the weave of the fabric than it is a print. February 4, 2014
Amazing winter coat! lightweight, very warm- like wearing nothing at all!!! I LOVE it! February 4, 2014
Nice looking jacket thought not so warm The jacket is nice, lite and comfortable but not very warm specially from the waist down, the top part feels warmer because it fits more snug to the body. I would say it's great if the weather doesn't drop below 30. Size M fits a little roomy but S maybe too snug I am size 6. I would of love this jacket if they used more insulation material. February 4, 2014
Huge difference between sizes This coat was not made for women. I have hips, because I'm a woman, and despite the reviews saying that it will fit tighter around the hips and baggier up top I wanted to try this coat because of the amazing reviews on it's warmth. I'm a pants size 8/10, and originally ordered a large because the reviews said it ran small (mediums are my typical), but it was giant on me, like a sleeping bag. Returned it and got a medium, and I could barely zip it over my thighs. I was shocked that a company like Columbia would have such discrepancies between their sizes. January 29, 2014
Perfect Fir I was hesitant to order an XS after having read some reviews about the jacket running small, but I decided to risk it and I could not be more happy. I am 5'2" and 105 lbs. The XS is a prefect fit with room for a thick layer underneath if needed. A S would have been baggie and sloppy looking. The contoured shape of the jacket is very flattering and I LOVE the thumb hole at the bottom of the sleeves. Great product! January 29, 2014
Wouldn't survive without this coat I have never written a review for an item, but I love this coat so much I knew I needed to. It is so lightweight, but SO SO warm. I never feel the wind blow through it. I love the thumb holes on my hands because it easily creates a seal when I put gloves on. I am a student at UW-Madison and live a 25 minute walk from all my classes and this coat does its job and then some! I will stick with the omni-heat technology the rest of my life! (I only docked the quality a little bit because there are little strings sticking out from the stitching in certain places.) January 28, 2014
love this coat!! super warm and yet super thin, as promised! January 12, 2014
Tired of that Michelin Man look? I was! My other puffy coat made me look like a marshmallow and ended up feathering all over my sweaters. This jacket solved both of those problems...and it was warm enough to get me through the Polar Vortex in New England. I ordered it in Quill and get compliments on the color all the time! It is nice to wear a shade a little outside of the winter color box. My only complaint is that the hood does not have a cord to tighten it and keep it in place, thus a hat is often a necessity. But overall, this was an excellent, warm, super-cute, flattering purchase and now all of my co-workers want to order one! January 9, 2014
Warm, but.. This jacket was warm, despite being thin! But the quality was bad. Some of the insulation started coming out within 2 days of light use. And the hood just didn't work for me. It was too lose, and kept falling off. Overall, I'm disappointed with the quality, and I'm looking for a different jacket (better built) with the omni-heat technology. January 9, 2014
Quility of Jackets I have enjoyed wearing this jacket and find that it is light weight but keeps me warm and I get many raves about it and have had friends try it on December 28, 2013
Excellent product I love Columbia jackets and coats, they are excellent quality. I am truly a satisfied customer. December 20, 2013
A very favorite! I really haven't seen a Columbia product that isn't excellent! This one is very light weight, soft comfy and a pleasure to wear. Kind of like that coming home after a long day at work, and putting on your joggers and sweatshirt feeling! I purchased a size larger than I normally wear, so I could put a few layers under when the weather gets colder. The only thing that would make it even better, would be another zipper pocket on the inside. One on each side would really be great. One for the cash and credit cards and one for the cell phone! Perhaps some day there will be one like it, with out the outer shell quilted. Something just as light, soft and comfy, with a more elite outer shell and detachable hood. ;) December 19, 2013
Not Sized Well I bought this coat for my daughter who wears a size 6 and it is too small. We have to return it. She is currently wearing another well known brand in a size small, which fits fine. Other reviews said this runs small so we ordered the medium. It looks nice and is amazingly lightweight so we are disappointed. December 19, 2013
Best coat I own I'm amazed at how warm this jacket is. I was surprised and confused when I opened the box on the lack of bulk. Walking around in a winter wonderland is no problem in this jacket, I stayed warm without layers underneath. December 18, 2013
Warm and well-fitting, but not standalone It's definitely comfortable and well-constructed, but it can't stand up to Chicago winters without a second layer of outerwear. December 18, 2013
Great coat! This coat is everything I wanted it to be. It is very light weight yet also very warm and cozy. I love it. I did order a size larger than I would ordinarily order, because I had been told that it ran small. I usually wear a size M or L in a coat, but I ordered an EXL and I'm happy that I did. Fits great and looks good, too. December 18, 2013
surprisingly warm you would not think this is a warm jacket from how thin and light it is. Surprisingly keeps all your warmth inside with the omni-heat technology. i'm confident i can use this as my winter coat, but with a scarf because the neck area seems a bit loose. December 17, 2013
Omni-Heat Chicago I live in Chicago, IL and well so far the weather has been OK- I would like to say the Jacket is pretty good, I love the way it fits and keeps me warm. I was a little skeptical at first, but now that the temperature has dropped a little more I have been able to put it through the real test. I love how I can still wear a sweater underneath if I have to and not feel tight. It is true to size, I bought a Medium, and it fits great, I love the length of the jacket!!! and the total plus is the fact that it is so light!! I love it!!!!! December 17, 2013
Excellent Jacket- Warm and super light! This is easily the lightest and warmest winter jacket I've ever had. It is true to size. I am a petite person and I ordered small. It fits perfectly. I LOVE it. December 17, 2013
Got What I Needed Finally! Excellent fit and quality! I am 5'9". I have little wider shoulders and long arms, therefore it has been very difficult to find a winter coat. Usually when the body is fit, the shoulder is too narrow. Or when the shoulder is fit, the body is too big. I am glad that this jacket has solved the problem! December 17, 2013
One needs to be thin. This product is not made for a woman with hips. December 17, 2013
Nice jacket, but... I returned this jacket after trying it on. It is very thin, I did not test outside because I wasn't happy with the fit. The pockets sit too low and it makes it uncomfortable. Also did not like the zipper on the jacket, it bunches up in the stomach area making me look like a have a big stomach while I do not. Overall, its a nice jacket, but not for me. December 16, 2013
Not quite warm enough, but.. I live in Minnesota and the temps are currently sub zero. I purchased this coat knowing full well it wasn't down filled but liked the style enough to get it anyway. As I suspected it's nort quite warm enough. BUT I can layer a shirt and sweater with this coat and be perfectly warm! I'm still looking for the down filled parka to beat all parkas but in the meantime this will suffice. December 15, 2013
Excellent jacket, second time around Bought this jacket first in size L in gravel. Ran small, plus gravel means army green. Returned it and got XL in quill and fits great with wiggle room. I am 5' 9" and 165 lb. December 14, 2013
Easy to pack. Warm, yet don't get overheated. Usually take a SM, but based on other reviews, went up to a Med. and fits pretty well. Runs slender at hips, wide at shoulders and narrow at bottom. Unzipping bottom helps. Agree sleeves run long, but inner cuff makes them manageable. Hood doesn't stay on in wind, so took 4 tucks around edge which helps. If redesigned, adding thin elastic around edge of hood might solve the problem. All in all, a great coat, especially if traveling to a cold climate. Chose color Quill and love it. December 14, 2013
Great coat This is the coat everyone should have. It is the one you can wear in the car and still be comfortable. It is very stylish, but most of all, so lightweight and keeps you so warm. It is longer in length to cover. I love it. December 14, 2013
Not Nearly Thick Enough I purchased this coat as my primary winter coat as I do a lot of walking around my college campus, however when I received it, I was unpleasantly surprised. I had read the reviews before I purchased it and many stated it was "surprisingly warm." I guess I'm not exactly sure where people were writing their reviews from, but this jacket could never withstand our cold Minnesota winters. It is about as thick as a windbreaker and I couldn't last ten minutes out in the cold wearing this jacket. I am returning it and going for a reliably warm down jacket. December 14, 2013
lightweight and functional This coat is great for everyday winter wear in the midwest. It's not great for the super cold spells (single and below zero digits), if you have to stand outside for lengthy periods of time, but it will get you to your car and home! I love how lightweight it is. I don't like feeling huge and bulky in winter coats, just to stay warm. I'm a little nervous that I am going to snag it on something. It seems a bit delicate, but we'll see how it lasts the winter! December 14, 2013
Great coat, runs small After doing much research on this jacket I had read reviews, comments etc. Anticipating a upcoming trip to snow country, I thought this would be the perfect coat. I ordered this in a size medium. I am 5'8, 133 lbs. & generally wear a size 6. The medium was tight. I returned it to the store. The sad part is I ordered it on sale & by the time it arrived & I discovered the Mediums was SMALL, when I repurchased it the price had gone back to $140.00. Columbia didn't have this coat in Quill size Large when I tried to repurchase. I lost my Columbia points for the return, my Discover card cash back awards, & my free shipping. I was so elated to be saving so much money on my original purchase! HA! The coat is everything all others were raving about. Extremely light weight. Good construction. I agree about the hood issue, it could use some sort of closure. I am leaving next week for the snow trip & am sure this coat will do well. I will write another review upon return. December 13, 2013
The Omni Heat technology behind this jacket is superb! This jacket is light weight, smooth, high quality fabric and very functional! The technology behind the Omni Heat Thermal design is superb. The jacket is light weight so it will have a tailored feel to it making it feminine without the bulkiness of a heavy coat, without sacrificing the need for warmth and flexible movement. December 13, 2013
Womans Winter Jacket It was a tight fit in the chest area for my daughter. I have sent it back & requested a larger size. Waiting to receive an e-mail as I requested to see if my request has been honored so that we don't have to start looking for a different jacket. December 13, 2013
Functional and attractive I wanted a warm knee length jacket that was lightweight, warm and could be worn to work. This jacket fits the bill. Unlike many winter jackets it has a flattering cut and can be worn with pants or dresses/skirts. It doesn't get too cold where I live, mostly 20's-30's, so I can't speak to if it would be warm enough in a really cold climate. December 13, 2013
Really like this jacket I really like how light weight this jacket is while still keeping me warm. I live in MN and it was below zero this week and I stayed warm. Even with a sweater under the jacket you do not feel bulky. The hood stays up in the wind. I like the inside pocket as well. I ordered the medium and it was too small, had to get the large. I wear a size 8 or medium clothes. December 12, 2013
Love this winter jacket! I bought this jacket to keep me warm when I walk my kids to school in the windy, below-freezing Colorado weather. I have not been disappointed. It's the perfect length and warmth, and is so light and has a flattering cut. It breaks the wind enough to provide relief. My knees and my face may freeze, but my upper body is toasty. I like that the zip comes up high and the neck is a bit tight, so the wind doesn't get down in there. There are only two things I don't like about this jacket but neither is a big deal. One is that the omni-heat lining works up a massive static charge, so that I'm always giving/getting huge shocks. The other is that I wish the hood were a bit larger. It doesn't provide any protection for my face. That said, it stays put and doesn't blow off, so there might be a trade-off there. I'm 5'11", 150 lbs, slender build and the Medium is a perfect fit. Love the built-in texting gloves. I have trouble finding long-enough sleeves with my long arms, and they take care of it. The jacket is snug enough in the hips to provide an incentive to lay off the holiday treats. Overall, super happy with this jacket and find it a great value. December 12, 2013
If it weren't for the hood. The hood on this jacket simply won't stay up. There's no hope if it's windy. Even if I walked briskly or turned my head too much or too quickly, off it slid. I always had to keep one hand on the hood to keep it on. There's no drawstring to adjust it. If it were deeper so it hung down further, the weight of it might keep it up. I felt like my forehead always stuck out, even when it was up. It just doesn't work. If you don't care about having a hood, this is a great jacket. Fit was great, weight was great, nice that it's packable, and I really think the Omni-Heat thing did its job. I was always warm. But I wanted a jacket like this precisely for the hood, and that's the jacket's worst feature, so back it went. I really, really tried to make it work! December 12, 2013
Excellent Purchase I am so happy with this purchase! I live in upstate New York and the temperatures are already dipping into the single digits from time to time. This jacket is so warm and does it's job--omni-heat is absolutely everything! Don't be fooled by the fact that it is so light, it is par for the course! It does run small and I am glad I listened to the other reviewers on this score. I am 5'4" and 125 lb and ordered a medium and it fit comfortably with lots of room for layering underneath. A size small may have fit but would probably not have given me enough room for layering which one needs to do in this part of the country. December 12, 2013
Light AND warm This jacket is amazingly light, yet amazingly warm. When I first took it out of the box (I got it online), I was surprised by how thin it appeared. I was actually worried if it could be any warm. But I was very pleasantly surprised when I wore it outside in the windy Cleveland weather. The jacket keeps me so warm, it doesn't feel like I'm outside. We get some really strong wind gusts here, but I don't feel them with this jacket. Even the sleeves seem to be insulated, which was not the case with my old coat. Overall, this jacket represents a great value! My only slight complain is that the white color seems whiter in person than in the picture online. December 11, 2013
Great Coat Simply put, I love this coat. I bought the short version of it last year in late fall/early winter, thinking that I'd move to a heavier coat in the full blown Chicago winter. I didn't have to. This coat is surprisingly warm. Depending on how fast I'm walking, I've even sweat in it! I bought the longer version of the same coat this time around. I do think they run slightly small, so order accordingly. There isn't a single thing I'd change about this coat. December 11, 2013
Almost perfect... I looked at many different coats but this had the cuffs that I was looking for and the omni heat lining. These features are great! My only complaint (the reason it got 4 stars and not 5) is that it is not offered in a petite. I expected it to be longer on me and the sleeves maybe alittle long but the neck when zipped up is way to high and interfers with driving. It's fine when walking the dog, which is why I wanted this length. The shoulders are big but I think it's because the waist falls at the wrong spot on me and it rides up a little and pushes the shoulders up on me. I still love the coat but if your petite just be aware of these issues. I am 5'1" and 140 and ordered the large. December 10, 2013
Awesome Winter Jacket! When I first received the jacket, I was very surprised of how light it was. I really like the length as it contributes to keeping me warm. I walked my dog while snowing and sleeting and the jacket was warm. Though the outer layer material looked like it was getting soaked, the jacket stayed surprisingly warm and no moisture seeped into the jacket. December 10, 2013
THE BEST WINTER JACKET EVER I got this jacket in white last year. It looks so elegant and keeps me warm even when its way below freezing point. I love the omni heat. But Since white gets dirty i need to wash it every other week.. After so many washes in Machine it still looks great. Also, Its NOT BULKY. So, this year I decided to get one more and got the one in Abyss. WOW ! Just WOW !!! I am not a winter person. I love to stay Warm and seriously with this jacket I don't even need GLOVES. I just pull the arm from inside. It keeps me toasty warm even in snow. in nut shell.... Stylish and fully functional. Highly Recommend. December 9, 2013
I love this coat! I was looking for a long coat that was warm, but not super puffy for my son's winter soccer games. When the package arrived, it was so light, I was worried it would not provide the warmth I needed. This coat was everything I was looking for. I love that it is light weight, but keeps you warm and dry. It is great for traveling as it can be folded up and not take up a lot of room in your suitcase. December 9, 2013
I love it The best jacket ever!!! December 8, 2013
Warmth without the bulk! My girlfriend had the short version of this coat last year, she loved it so much she bought two colors. Well, if she bought two colors in the same coat, I was willing to give it a go. My bum tends to get cold quite easily so I opted for the longer version. And I LOVE THIS COAT! I live in the city and the wind off the lake is BRUUUTAL! So the fact that I have the protection of a longer coat agains the elements and I keep the warmth whilst walking my dog, collecting my children from school amongst the elements of a Chicago winter. Well, the choice of this coat could not be more perfect. I definitely think the the quality of the coat is high! You are wanting a functional, LIGHTWEIGHT coat. I disagree with some of the reviewers. I also disagree with some of the reviewers on the sizing. I do think the sizing runs a bit large. I ordered a small and the cut is kind of boxy. I definitely have room to layer on a 1/2 zip fleece or something if I needed to. I am actually glad that Columbia has not gone too far off the far end of sizing as some other retailers have where a size 2 is really a size 6. December 6, 2013
Great Coat This is a great coat. It is warm without the bulk and I love the longer length. The only con is that the wrist cover with the thumb slot is already coming apart at the seams, I have only had the coat a month. But other than that the coat is warm and very comfortable. The weather has just started to turn to the great midwest ice land, and so far the coat has done great. Blocks the wind well. December 5, 2013
Great coat ! Runs a little small, I order one size bigger, fits perfect ! Light weight, warm,,, Love this coat ! December 5, 2013
Wonderful features I ordered one size larger because it is slim fitting. This worked great, and I am able to wear over bulky sweaters. It is very light in weight, which makes it very comfortable for driving. I am very pleased with all the features of this coat. December 5, 2013
warm and cozy This jacket is exactly what I intended to purchase. It's warm, functional and a great length. My only constructive feedback is in the quality of the zipper. The main zipper feels low quality and is not smooth or easily zipped. December 4, 2013
Great for Wisconsin My daughter wanted this for walking to and from college classes in Wisconsin Winters. She has nothing but positive things to say about the coat. She says it is incredibly warm, yet the coat itself is very lightweight, which is nice because she is weighted down with books. Would definitely recommend this coat. December 4, 2013
