Women’s Mighty Lite™ III Jacket – Plus Size 4.5 5 50 50
Best jacket ever! Warmest jacket I have ever owned and prettiest! It's nice to have name brand quality items for plus size December 25, 2014
Disappointed Initially, I wanted to buy another Columbia Sportswear Jacket due to my previous purchase of a Water Resistant technology winter jacket last year (2013). So I purchased the Women’s Mighty Lite™ III Jacket – Plus Size 2X, but it was not as warm as I thought it would be (or advertised). Even worn with a hooded sweater underneath, it was not warm enough to withstand the 35-40 degrees NY weather. The Women’s Mighty Lite™ III Jacket – Plus Size's zipper would not zip all the way to the top. The product is not worth this price. It is more like a 60+ degrees spring jacket rather than a winter jacket even with the Omni-Heat and Water Resistant technology. It would be better with an adjustable hood, more plush, and warmth. I really regret this purchase. December 21, 2014
wonderful color I got the pink and the color is amazing. Unfortunately I followed the reviews and sized up in this jacket. It is too big but I have already worn it once. I wish I had of sized down! I am probably going to order another one but what a waste of money...I should have followed my instinct and sent it back right away but I kept thinking it would be great with a sweater...nope still too big. Love, love, love the color and the weight...you will ove this nice jlightweight jacket but don't size up! December 18, 2014
Daisys Nana loves this jacket!! OMG love this coat...love it so much I'm going to get my daughter one.. She will love it.. Thank you!! December 18, 2014
Mighty Lite III Jacket First of all this jacket is so cute, I love that. But it is made so small. I normally wear X-Large in outerwear but I went up to a 1X in this coat and it was tight, in the arms, not only the upper but forearm also. The chest and waist area were doable but definitely didn't fit like a 1X in other outerwear. I'm new to Columbia, so I'm learning the sizes and fit of their line...But I too would say go up a size maybe two, if you're a little bigger in the chest area....I'm keeping it but in the future I will order 2X but I really wish Columbia would re-size their clothing so it's not so tight and you could order your normal size instead of having to guess....Thank you December 18, 2014
LOVE THIS JACKET! I ordered up one size because I wear layers here in Chicago. That being said, love this jacket because it is so lightweight, but very warm. If you put the jacket on a few minutes before going outside - it is toasty. December 16, 2014
Love love this jacket The most comfortable winter jacket I have ever had. Lightweight not bulky and keeps you warm. Live in Minnesota and this jacket is a must for any cold climates. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. December 9, 2014
SO HAPPY AND BEYOND SATISFIED!!! I've been hunting for a good winter jacket that doesn't add a ton of bulk and make me look ridiculous/huge (as I am plus sized) for months...took a chance and ordered this jacket online on Black Friday and the beauty just arrived in the mail today!!! Let's just say I'm THRILLED!! I absolutely love this jacket!! Ladies, if you are curvy/plus sized and are sick of most stores' winter jackets that not only look extremely unflattering but are also physically uncomfortable...bulky...restricting, then this is the jacket for YOU!!! This jacket is SO lightweight and comfortable, barely adds any bulk to your body shape, but the Omni-Heat feature keeps you VERY warm and dry!! We had light snowfall in Massachusetts today and it was freezing. I tested this jacket out for the first time and it kept me nice and toasty! It is so easy to move around in and I can't stress this enough, SO comfortable. It's very flattering too. I ordered this in Black in a 2X. I normally wear an XXL or 1X, but something told me to order this jacket a size up as I have broad shoulders, wide hips and a full chest. I didn't want it to feel tight. I would recommend ordering a size up. I definitely have room to wear a sweater underneath but probably not a very bulky hoodie. I got this jacket for a good deal on Black Friday. It took awhile to ship but it was worth the wait. My only complaint is I wish it had a hood. I notice the longer version of this jacket has a hood but I'm pretty short so I tend to look ridiculous in long jackets. All in all, I am SO HAPPY with this jacket!! It wasn't super expensive, will keep me warm all winter and it is definitely one of the most flattering jackets I've ever seen for a curvy figure. SO LIGHTWEIGHT!! Did I mention that already?? Haha. The Omni-Heat is just magic!! December 8, 2014
Fun coat I love this coat! It is bright(pink) and it is light in weight and keeps you warm. Great for shopping and doing errands when you don't want a bulky coat. I do wish it had a hood and I am not thrilled with the weird inner sleeve hand thing with the thumb hole. It just gets in the way. December 5, 2014
Sleeves too tight and confining From the other reviews, I knew others were ordering up a size. I wear an XL in TNF. But trying this on in the store, the sleeves and waist were too tight. I thought I could apply ordering up to the sleeves. Unfortunately, for me the sleeves are just too tight and then the bust is very large. I would have needed to have it tailored to fit. Why must the sleeves be so tight? Arm movement is important...had to return. December 3, 2014
Awesome coat! This is the second Columbia coat I have purchased. The first one was about 15 years ago. I am still wearing that one by the way! I wanted a lighter coat than the one I already had and chose this one. I could not be happier with it! I purchased a size larger so I could wear sweaters and sweatshirts underneath if I wanted. The size is just right. It is large enough for a hoodie, but not so large that I can't wear it alone. December 1, 2014
Love it! When I first received it in the mail I thought, oh no this will never keep me warm. What a nice surprise! It's light weight and yet keeps me nice and toasty. I shoveled snow, kept warm and didn't sweat. Perfect for outdoor sports. I ordered another in hot pink! November 28, 2014
Love this Jacket I purchased this jacket in Quill in 2x. The fit is a little small, but it is perfect under a light sweater or tees. The color is beautiful and a have received many compliments already. It is warm. November 20, 2014
Love this coat so much I am ordering another! I live in Wisconsin so I am anticipating a very cold winter this year. I bought this coat in the coral glow...absolutely beautiful! This color is bright and bold so know this when you buy it it's not a boring coat. Everyone will notice you. Had several people ask where to get it! I also like the fact it is not bulky like down..so you won't get the Michelin man effect. The only issue I have with any of the Columbia jackets is the arm openings are way to small. I bought a 3x in order just to be able to move properly with a sweatshirt or a thin sweater. This coat can not have a bulky sweater underneath. It would be too cramped. November 17, 2014
This jacket needs to be more durable The jacket is extremely light weight and comfortable but is too flimsy and looks wrinkled after only 2weeks of wear. Was looking for a more substantial coat. Would be good in moderate temps but not in real cold weather. More of a wind jacket, which it does keep wind out. November 17, 2014
Great product! Received my jacket today in the coral color. I knew it would be bright and I love it! Wore it outside with cold and heavy wind and it felt great! I would recommend to anyone. It does run a little small. I'm glad I ordered a size bigger so I can wear a heavy sweater under it. November 11, 2014
LOVE IT! I've been searching for a nice light weight, but warm jacket for several years and never found the right one. I was hestiant to order online without trying it on - but fits great. I ordered the size I typically would, but I tend to order a bit larger anyway. Extremely warm, but not bulky, and didn't get feathers all over my sweaterh when I wore it!! Definitely worth the price November 6, 2014
Great Jacket - Warm, trendy and packable Being in the outdoor industry, I've tried several different light down jackets, and this to date, is my favorite. It's breathable, packable and is perfect for chilly mornings and nights. I bought it a little larger so it's longer and more space to bundle layers underneath it, and so far, is holding true to it's value. Sometimes I wish it had a hood, but it's the perfect addition to my street-wear wardrobe and my new go-to-jacket! I love it so much that I may buy another one in a different color. October 31, 2014
Great fit, and very flattering! I love my coat! My husband bought this coat for me after looking for one for over a year. I had a hard time finding a coat that was flattering and fit comfortably, this one is perfect. It's not boxy at all and is very low profile for a 'puffy' coat. It is also very warm, especially for being so thin. I highly recommend it! October 29, 2014
Love it, but a bit small I am 5'8" and normally wear a 1x/2x in clothing. I bought this in size 2x. While it fits, it's a bit snug in the chest/hip area as the jacket is fitted. I am sending it back and ordering a 3x, unfortunately. I want to be able to wear sweaters/sweatshirts under it and there is no way any of that will fit. The jacket itself is gorgeous, I absolutely love it. I bought the Quill color (purple) and it's a bit darker than the picture, which I'm fine with. I can't wait for my new one to arrive so I can actually wear it! No complaints, but maybe Columbia should adjust their size charts so I don't have to order this twice? October 23, 2014
my dream coat I love this coat. It is so nice. I love the comfort cuffs. The omni heat technology is amazing. I will wear this beautiful white coat until it wears out and I will then buy another! October 13, 2014
Way too small I should have listened to all the previous reviews when they said this runs small! I got the same jacket in a longer version last year, so I went ahead and got the same size as I had previously (even doublechecked by trying it on again before I made this order, just to be positive on the size.) This jacket fits perfectly if you're just wearing a t-shirt underneath, but definitely no room for an extra sweater or layers. My main use is for my commute to and from work where I'm standing outside waiting for buses, so it essentially works for that, but I'm not planning on wearing it all day at work, so I'd have to bring my sweater separately in a bag or something. I'm going to the store this afternoon to return it :( September 18, 2014
great Love it. Its light weight and I love the way it fit me. I never wear it out doors let due to the fact it just now turning fall season in USA. I bought this coat for the winter. September 8, 2014
Finally pulled the trigger and so glad I did! I have been looking at light-weight jackets like these for a few seasons. I'm so glad I finally purchased it and wished I had done so earlier. SO light and warm, very compact (have worn under softshell to ski). Every member of my family has one now and those days of super-puffy, giant winter coats are gone! The reflective inside of coat really does the trick. I go between XL and 1X for coats and on this one I needed the 1X since it is fitted at the hips. December 16, 2013
Great jacket for travel in Ireland I bought this coat a month and a half ago for my year in Northern Ireland. I generally wear on the bigger side of 22/24 and I also run warmer than most. This jacket has been great in the weather here. Although there is no hood, I have been kept toasty warm even in the rainy, cold, blowy wind. It has almost been too warm at times. What I love about it is the lack of bulk. I needed to pack very light and this did the trick. Some reviews have complained about the thinness of the outer fabric but I have had very few problems with it. I haven't been exactly careful wearing it and I even bumped into a barbed-wire fence and so far no holes or tears. If I were more rough I'm sure it would tear but it is serving my daily activities and needs. I highly recommend this as a good every day warm jacket. December 14, 2013
Warm,light and very practical I bought this jacket to wear for dog walking in Massachussetts winters. It has now become my favourite coat anytime I venture outside. It keeps me warm without overheating me like other winter coats do, it is comfortable as it is so light I bearly notice I'm wearing it. And it is good quality material with sturdy zips . The arms are a good length on me ( i have long arms). The pockets are a good size for putting gloves in. I love it! I chose red so that I can be seen by cars when walking on dark roads. December 13, 2013
Warm and Comfy Bought this jacket for running around in. Needed something that wasn't heavy and not too hot while doing errands. It fit the bill. I normally wear a 1x but decided to go for a 2x so I could wear extra layers if I wanted to. Even with a roomy sweater - you don't feel bulky or look so broad shouldered. Would buy this jacket again. Am very happy with it. November 24, 2013
Very pleased I ordered this jacket in spite of reviews that is runs a little small. Really the only place I find it to be a little too tight is in the arms. I probably won't be able to wear bulky sweaters under it, but I am still very satisfied with my purchase. The quality is great. It is very warm and lightweight - which is exactly what I was looking for. Love the color, love the jacket! November 24, 2013
So Warm and Comfortable! This coat is absolutely AMAZING! It's so comfortable. It's not bulky at all. We have not yet had extremely cold weather, but I've found that it's TOO warm for 30's & 40's. I think this coat will be perfect for our cold winters. I found it to be true to size. I am a size 18 and ordered a 1x and it's a perfect fit. I love that it's not puffy as that does not bode well for my size. This is my favorite purchase of the year... hands down! November 21, 2013
warm and light! I love my coat, although I have not used it in really cold weather yet...I live in Montana and I think it will be great for layering! I wish it had a hood though. I ordered one size up and happy I did. great coat! November 15, 2013
Great Jacket Love this jacket I would recommend this but make sure to order up a size as it does run small. November 11, 2013
Nice and light weight... I hate being in a bulky jacket to be warm so this new Omni Heat is wonderful for me. It is very warm and light. I love the color Dark Compass also. If your looking for a warm light jacket then this is the one. November 2, 2013
A little small.............. Nice coat overall. I love the light weight warmth. October 28, 2013
Great Coat! I bought this coat for a trip to Alaska. What I love about this coat is that it is lightweight , but warm. I bought the coat in dark compass and the color is beautiful. I also bought the matching vest. September 13, 2013
Nice Jacket! This jacket is very light weight and seems to be warm. I bought this for the cooler weather and haven't had a chance to test it out yet, that is the reason for the 4 stars. It fits nice on a larger frame and is not puffy. I am 5'5", weigh 189, and the 1X fits perfectly. I really like the columbia products and wish they would make available more styles in the extended sizes. September 12, 2013
Warm I wish it was a little longer, other than that it is great. January 19, 2013
Great jacket Looks nice, good weight and keeps you warm. January 18, 2013
Lightweight, Warm Jacket I love this jacket! It is lightweight and the Omni-Heat technology really works. I live in a cold, snowy climate in the winter and this jacket keeps me warm and cozy. I wear an 18/20, but opted to get the 2x so I could wear heavy sweaters underneath. Perfect fit. The reasons I gave it four stars as opposed to five: 1. The zippers are thin and seem fragile; 2. There are no toggles at the bottom to keep the cold from creeping up inside; and 3. Polyester? Really? This is the cheapest fabric known to man. Doesn't seem worth the cost of this expensive jacket (even though I bought it on sale). Also, I am disappointed that Columbia doesn't carry their full line in plus-size options. I found a similar jacket with hood and toggles on the bottom, in a bright purple, but they did not carry that model in plus-size. I would have preferred that model. That said, this jacket is warm, stylish, and comfortable. I would highly recommend it. January 12, 2013
Women's Mighty Lite III Sorry but this jacket does not meet my needs, the size was too big and not warm enough for what I was expecting. I have several Columbia products and love the quality, however, I am returning the item as it is not what I was expecting or looking for. January 11, 2013
Warm & very light! I ordered the red jacket, and based on other reviews, ordered a 2x, as I usually fit in a 1x. The size is great, maybe slightly big, but kept it because it has room for bulky sweaters. It is generous in the waist area without being too bulky. I live in Wisconsin, and have worn the jacket to go sledding. It is surprisingly warm, despite how thin it is, and it looks so much better than the typical "marshmallow" coat, especially on a larger gal. I would definitely recommend this jacket, I have received many compliments on it. One word of warning - the red is more of a candy apple red versus the red I thought it would be, but otherwise it's great!! January 11, 2013
Great Jacket! I bought this jacket for a trip to Ireland over New Years. The weather was cool (40-50 F) windy and misty with some rain. We were out and about most of the time walking and the jacket was great. It kept me dry and warm. The thumb holes are wonderful for keeping the wind out and the sleeves down. It is cut a bit small in the arm, so I ordered a 2X as I would normally wear an XL or 1X, and that worked fine. I didn't need any layering as it will keep you warm. I wouldn't wear a sweater under it unless I was out below 30 F or more. January 5, 2013
Great jacket without the bulk! I bought this as a gift for my daughter but I'm going to order one for myself! We love that it doesn't 'bulk us up' as who wants to look bigger than they are! The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is that it is a little pricey for what it is and runs just a tad smaller than other brands. However, both of these are typical of Columbia so if you have other Columbia products, you know this already. Overall a great product and I recommend! January 1, 2013
Runs Large I am so grateful to Columbia and their extended sizes! This jacket is lightweight and doesn't add a lot of bulk. It's nice and warm and I'm looking forward to wearing it to Big Bear. I am 5'6, 215lbs and a 40DDD and the 1X is still rather large on me. My measurements are 46-35-43 and 1x is said to fit up to a 45-38-47. I still have PLENTY of room in the chest and way too much in the waist and hips. But I still love this coat, but I am thinking of taking it in. December 28, 2012
So far a great coat I purchased size 3x based on the size recommendation although I've never worn a 3x. I wish I had gotten a 2x since the coat runs a bit large. So far I have yet to be cold wearing this coat and that's pretty good given that I live in south dakota and its been around -5 here. The only down side since the coat is too big that when wind hits it, the wind goes straight up the bottom as there's no adjustable waist band. Overall, I really like it. December 26, 2012
Bought for my wife... She loves it!!!! It is lightweight and she loves it. I am thinking about buying me one in mens. Columbia is the greatest maker of coats and jackets ever!!!! December 25, 2012
Love my Jacket I will say this jacket runs VERY small. I normall wear an XL Ladies. Luckily I had tried one on in the store and realized I needed a 2X. However I could have probably gotten away with a 1X but when I would reach out the sleaves were a little short especially if I had thumbs in thumb holes & I primarly bought the coat for riding my horse at winter events so I didn't want to feel binded in any way. The coldest it has been since I recieved my coat is 31 but a VERY windy 31.... My job requires me to go outside a good bit and I can say that on that windy 31 degree day that my upper body was toasty but my legs were freezing. So far I LOVE this coat! I wish they would line some jeans with the same liner... I would buy a pair for sure! December 21, 2012
light but warm I love this jacket but purchased it in the orange, which looked like a pumpkin color. Unfortunately it was construction cone orange which will not be attractive on anyone. Will be sending it back as I do not need to be that visible in a crowd. Don't love the other colors either but it would have been nice otherwise. Also loved the price. December 15, 2012
My MN Fall Coat! I have perhaps a dozen jackets to choose from to handle the wide range of temperatures we have in MN in the Fall. This jacket is the only one I have been wearing since I got it. It is light weight, fits well over my sweaters, blazers, or just my T-neck, and I have yet to be cold in it and it has been down to the low 20's a couple nights already. Ease of movement is a plus, and the sleeves are not too short, which happens often when I order a 1X vs. an 18. great pockets, not too shallow. I get comments about the shiny inside, but then I get to educate others about the omni heat concept. November 5, 2012
coat I love my jacket. It is very warm and I love the color. I do wish you would honor other coupons, I wasn't offered anything off regular price until I signed up for rewards then that was only 15 %. I would have liked to see at least 25% or better, like other competitors offer. Anyway, I love my jacket. Thank you November 3, 2012
Lightweight Nice Fit The Mighty Lite Jacket is very comfortable, extremely light weight, and has a nice fit with becoming lines for a plus size woman. The sleeves are a bit long for me, but I can make that work given the inside elastic cuff design. I was expecting the jacket to be warmer than it is, however. For Minnesota weather it's a great late fall jacket, but I don't think it'll work as a winter outdoor use coat in this climate. I think it'll be perfect during the winter when I'm in and out of the car and shopping. I would recommend it to others who need a jacket for these circumstances. I would purchase it again.
