Rated 4 out of 5 by worth it! I love this jacket, & love that it comes in plus sizes. I love how I can layer underneath, it's pretty roomy. I probably could have sized down, but I was unsure if the sizes were true to size. The wrist cuffs with thumb holes are a plus! I also like how every pocket has a zipper, plus added interior pocket is a bonus! I'd like to see this jacket in more colours. It's very warm, but you don't get overheated or under heated. I'd like to see this jacket come with a attached hood, & maybe a bottom cinch cord to tighten around the hips. I also found that the arms were a tad long, but I don't mind that. THANK YOU for thinking about us plus size ladies out there! October 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Warm This jacket is very light,But very warm. Almost too warm when you are walking in the winter. With temp. -10c to -15c, have to unzipped the jacket. October 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great light fall and winter jacket This jacket is thin and light, but very warm and comfy. I like that it's not heavy and easy to roll up into a backpack or suitcase. Warms up within minutes and is a perfect jacket to take to the airport or any place you're traveling. Fits true to size and looks slimming. September 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thrilled! I bough this as a last minute purchase to head North for Ice fishing and snowmobiling. I was skeptical of the warmth such a thin jacket could provide but I was able to snowmobile for 7 hours in high teens to low 20's without getting even chilled. awesome jacket and I plan to buy another. February 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Coat I was really surprised by how lightweight and seemingly thin this coat was when it arrived. But, with the omniheat lining- this coat is very warm and cuts the wind -really maximizing your body heat. The thumb holes are super soft and warm and the interior zip pocket and zip exterior pockets are great features! Great for outdoor exercise or activities- not ideal for temps below 20 degrees if you're going to be outside and inactive. January 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Thin and warm, but too short I will admit I kept this jacket even though it is a little too short. It's perfect for weather 30-60 degrees, more layers if colder, and i'ts lightweight. January 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight but perfectly warm! I read all of the reviews on this jacket and did buy one size larger than I thought I needed. I should have fit in a 2X based on the sizing guide but I am glad I bought a larger size. It's very warm (despite its thin nature and lightweight). I love the sleeves with the thumb holes. Honestly, that probably sold me on the jacket. I have long arms and the sleeves are actually long enough. The thumb holes are a little tight for my long arms but useful for short wear. I don't think I'll always use them though because I feel like I am pulling on the jacket a little. It's stylish and not too billowy. I really wanted a jacket that was lightweight, warm and not bulky and I found it! December 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight knockout! I bought this item after I'd purchased the vest version a while ago; its quality, fit, and features had wowed me enough that I treated myself to the jacket. It's a great outerwear with a lightweight feel. While I almost live in hoodies, this item is a fashionable change up. I got the jacket in a 2X so I can wear bulky clothes under it; I haven't worn it in freezing conditions, but I don't think it would give the maximum warmth for 25 degree (or lower) weather without something warmer worn underneath. I love the snug cuff lining at the wrists with the thumb-hole; I slipped on my gloves over them and there is no gap for cold air to get to my arms! The tip of the zipper has an ergonomically shaped rubber tip for easy grasping, even with gloves on; smooth action on the zipper, no snags! The reflective dot lining helps me stay warm without over heating, nor do I get a static zap when I slip out of this coat like I do with other like coats. I know most of my points are little details, but it's the little things that round out a great jacket. The only thing I wish for on this otherwise great product is a detachable hood. Thanks for making an awesome jacket! December 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all around jacket I purchased this jacket for every day wear that I could also wear on the ski hill. I run very hot so a traditional ski jacket to too warm. On cold windy days -15 C (-20 C with wind) I was comfortable with a t shirt under it. It handles humidity and rain well and is warm with out the bulk. I love this jacket, I'm so glad I bought it. December 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm warm and warm I was very surprised at how warm this coat is given how thin it is. It is less bulky than your average sweatshirt, and very similar I'm feel to wearing a wind breaker. However, it keeps me warmer than my bulky wool coat. I was out in the snow for two hours and didn't get cold. I love this coat, and I should highly recommend it. December 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy so far! A lightweight down jacket - not sure it will survive the -40 temps we get, but so far I'm happy with it. Definitely keeps you warm in this transition time - especially in the wind! Body is pretty true to size, arms are really long though - will have to get those shortened! November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by drivability I wanted a warm jacket, without bulk and too much weight .Hate driving with a restrictive jacket. This jacket is great for driving and keeps me warm on cold days. Only wish it was a little longer. February 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the jacket but... I really love the jacket, it keeps you warm. It's so nice that it's really light weight. The size does run small. I usually wear a large or extra large, but with this jacket I got a 1XL. It allows me to wear something like a sweatshirt if I need to. The only problem is it'd be nice if there was a drawstring or something at the bottom of the jacket to tighten to prevent the wind from blowing under. Because of the bigger size, the bottom of the jacket is not fitting to my body type. Other than that it was nice to finally find a light, warm jacket for winter. February 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely lives up to its name! Perfect errand jacket and wearing while working out... light-weight incredibly warm and always getting compliments (purchased the jacket in coral glow) - warms up the grey dismal coloring of a Chicago winter. February 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good fit Many of the reviews stated this coat ran small. I feel the fit is great and true to size. My only complaint is the fabric used to line the pockets. It is very cheap and feels awful when I put my hand in my pocket. February 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great jacket Beautiful red jacket runs small so order a size larger than normal. It is so lightweight and comfortable-not bulky at all. I love this jacket and had looked all over for light weight warm one that was comfortable. February 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not what I expected.... Runs a little small, I recommend going the next size up and than you still won't be able to layer underneath. Also, jacket is not that warm. Better for a Fall jacket, will not keep you warm enough on a cold day. January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love love!! I got this jacket delivered today and LOVE it!! It does run a little small. Usually I wear a L or XL, and i purchased a 1X and fits perfect. Maybe with a little room for a sweater underneath. I am tempted to buy another!! January 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love this jacket I had been wanting this jacket for some time. It is very lightweight that makes it very packable for traveling. But don't let that fool you in to thinking that this is a lightweight jacket. It is very warm and comfortable. Had to order up a size to fit comfortable with layering underneath. Love the Omni Heat. I have slippers and vest that also has the same lining. January 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So comfortable. This is a great jacket. So light weight but nice and warm. I don't like heavy restricting jackets so this is perfect. I originally bought the Mighty Lite 111 vest and liked it so much that I bought the jacket too for an Alaskan cruise I am going to be taking. Love the weight and the cuffed sleeves with the thumb holes. Would highly recommend this jacket as well as the vest for slightly warmer uses. January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST JACKET EVER!!!! I do not like wearing jackets/coats but this is SO comfortable it's like not wearing one at all. I'm actually going to purchase the long one too. January 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
