Women’s Mighty Lite™ III Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 202.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toasty So light yet super warm. Runs a little snug on the chest area so recommend a size up if large chested (or want to layer). Sleeves good length, thumbholes are nice. Inside chest pocket good for phone / credit cards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Perfect I purchased this jacket after getting the longer might-lite. I wanted this for hiking and other outdoor adventures. It is perfect! I live on a lake where the windchill can be unbearable, but I am always warm in this jacket! Its cozy, light and fits in my hiking bag perfectly. I highly recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable to low 30's This jacket has a snug fit so order a size up if you plan to layer. With a single layer and this jacket, I am comfortable to about 32 degrees with moderate activity such as brisk walking. The jacket is obviously very light and can be used alone or layered for exceptionally cold weather. A very functional jacket and warmer than it looks..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I ordered this in a small as I am a smaller person, 5' and about 135 pounds, but it was too tight in the butt area. I exchanged for a medium and it fits great! Love the comfort sleeves and it is warm enough for a late winter/spring day without being too hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable! I purchased this jacket along with a vest and went up a size due to the layering. I really like this jacket. Light weight yet keeps you warm on those 30 degree days that you don't need a heavy winter coat. Not bulky either. The silver interior lining keeps the heat in. I would recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Jacket I wear this in California, and find myself getting sweaty while wearing it. It traps your body heat, and so the longer you wear it, the warmer you get. Not great with heavy winds, but good with water. The neck part is a bit high, however. It feels a bit weird with it zipped all the way up, so I just zip it up partway. I'm 5'2", 120 lbs, and I wear a size small.
Date published: 2017-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Love this jacket. It's light, warm and super comfortable. I also own the long version, both in size small. For reference, I'm 5'7", 120lbs, and 32DD chest. It fits great, it's not too big or too small, perfectly comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I originally purchased this needing a thinner jacket for the Idaho winter. My first jacket arrived and was unfortunately ripped (it does seems that the fabric is somewhat delicate), but Columbia was wonderful about helping me get it returned and another one ordered. The second one arrived in perfect condition. I purchased the deep marine color, which is a beautiful shade of blue. I'm 5; 7" and 115lbs and small-chested and ordered an XS. It fits perfectly and it is extremely flattering, even my boyfriend commented on how nice it looks! Highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love it! I love this jacket! It's nice and warm without being bulky. It does run a little small, so if you are going to wear it over heavy sweaters or sweatshirts you'll want to order one size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Loved the purple color. I asked for a smaller size thinking that it would be too big if I ask for my normal size but it was actually small, so ask for your normal size! Don't ask for a smaller size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight, yet warm jacket This jacket is very thin and lightweight, yet really warm. I love the cuff with added thumb hole. The cuff, however, is a thinner material and I already have a snag. Seriously, not a deal breaker though - just be careful. The fit is true to size (I purchased a small....5'9", 132lbs) with a nice hourglass, fitted cut. The length hits several inches below the hip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty best lil Jacket ever!!! Only Jacket I'll ever wear with temps 35 and above! Super light weight hardly know you have it on. Warm and toasty the best Jacket ever. I need same Jacket at car length and I give all my others away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Jacket I got this jacket because I wanted something lightweight and still kept me warm. This jacket does just that. I love it. I ordered a large because I always order a large with Columbia. I usually wear a medium but their clothes seem to work better if I get a large. If you want warmth and no bulk this is the jacket for you. I also love the color I got.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and Comfortable I live in Upstate NY, right near Canada. It gets to be -30 during the winter months. I bought this coat with a matching base layer. I went hiking today, (15 degrees) wearing both coats. I was warm and comfortable. I'm not sure that the coat itself in our tempatures would be warm enough. I'm 5'4, 130lbs. The medium fit me just right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too tight WARNING: this coat is not designed for curvy women. I read reviews saying it ran small, so I ordered up a size to an XL. The coat is uncomfortably tight across my hips and chest and it bunches up in between. Unfortunately, I will be returning it. It is a quality coat, but the fit issues make it unwearable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from impressive The Mighty Lite III performs better than I expected! I love the comfort cuffs - they prevent heat from escaping and cold from getting in and extend a bit past the wrist and provide a super thin overlap under gloves. The extra high collar stays up to protect your neck, but is easily tucked under if you need a little breeze. I read comments prior to purchase and did buy a Large instead of Medium. This did give me enough extra room for layering. It does have adequate extra length so that if you bend over it does not ride up and expose you. If I had purchased a smaller size, I don't think it would have fit over the hips w/o riding up. I was initially going to say I wish it had inner pockets, and then I found the inner security one! If I had to change anything, it would be to add a inner security pocket on the other side (a balance thing for me), make the bottom larger with a stretchy drawstring, and add a hood. On the hood issue, I wish designers would add an under cuff zipper on the neck piece and a hood zip in option. I purchased this for a mountaineering course and hoods large enough to accommodate a climbing helmet are recommended. I like this jacket enough to not return it, but I will forego another purchase of a hooded jacket and just purchase a less expensive balaclava. I love the Deep Marine color! I will re address this review at a later date if it fails to hold up to claims of being rain and stain resistant, but after a couple of weeks in my crazy life, it still looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Jacket I actually bought this jacket about three years ago for a trip to Europe in November/December. I wanted something that would keep me warm during my trips outside and I also wanted something that wasn't bulky and that would not take up much room in my bag. This jacket delivered!!!! Don't let the light weight fool you! This jacket will keep you warm without all the bulk of a typical jacket. All three of my daughters have since purchased this jacket. This purchase was by my youngest daughter. This is a fabulous jacket and certainly a favorite of mine.....or I guess I should say OURS!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Arrived I don't know why some of the other people are saying it runs small. I would say it's true to size or perhaps a bit big... I ordered a size small, and for reference I'm about 5'4", weigh roughly 118 and am a 32B in the bust. The overall fit is fairly loose, but the sleeves are quite long and the fit of the sleeves is too loose for my liking. Debating returning it for an x-small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket Jacket is form fitting but too tight for me. Very warm, light weight, perfect for packing and exactly what I'm looking for. Sending back to get one size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect winter coat This jacket is amazing. It fits true to size and the omni heat is amazing. I bought this jacket for a trip to Missouri and I stayed warm in 16 degree weather. The jacket isn't bulky like most jackets of this type and it complimented my small frame. I'm 5ft 5, 116lbs. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket Ever! I bought the exact same jacket in another color a couple of years ago at a department store. I used it and loved it in both Arizona and Chicago in the dead of winter. It is a perfect fit, tapered at the waist, with a high collar which when zipped eliminates the wind, has long sleeves and thumbholes to keep wrists warm. Easy to zip up or down and both WARM WARM WARM and LIGHT LIGHT LIGHT. Great zippered pockets and hidden inside pocket. Cannot say enough...it is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! My wife loves this jacket. The red is awesome and looks great. It has these little hand warmers with holes for thumbs, which I didn't realize and wife loved. Great gift idea for anyone... just a really nice looking, high quality product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket I bought this jacket because I wanted a jacket that was light weight but still kept you warm and toasty. Needless to say this wasn't it. The jacket ran a little small. I wear a medium and bought a large. When I tried it on I had a long sleeved thermal shirt on and it was very tight on, no wiggle room. Went outside in 40 degree weather, no wind just cold and it didn't keep me warm even with a thermal shirt on. Would love to have kept it but sorry to say I had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket for cold weather activities. I actually purchased this jacket for my girlfriend. I have the Mighty Lite Box Quilt jacket and she wanted something similar for herself. The "Purple Dahlia" color was on sale for $40. This color is fairly accurate to the image on the site (incorrect image color is a common problem on the Columbia website). This jacket appears to fit her well and is fairly flattering. She doesn't think the OmniHeat works as well as I do, but she still likes to wear the jacket often. As with this and my own Mighty Lite, we both agree that lightweight OmniHeat jackets like this are best for outdoor activities- where you need an outer layer that is very lightweight, allows plenty of movement, and keeps you warm during a time that you are generating a decent amount of body heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket without all the poof!! I've bought 3 of these jackets. 2 for my daughter and 1 for a gift. We live in a cold climate , daughter attends collage so warmth is important without the bulkiness . Super light weight and the colors are awesome!! I prefer the mid length just for more coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Investment I bought my first Mighty Lite jacket about 5 years ago for a summer trip to Switzerland. I needed something packable to put in my backpack on day hikes. This jacket was perfect: Packable, flattering and warm. I purchased my second jacket that winter in a snug size S to wear as a layer under my ski jacket. I wear my Mighty Lites to my kids' cross county and track meets, and to winter swim meets, as it keeps me warm from the car to the pool, and then easily smushes down into a seat cushion. It's perfect for walking the dog in fall through spring, and I also wear it indoors on chilly days, because it's so comfortable. My teenage daughter owns and loves the hooded version, and this year I'm considering purchasing the mid-length hooded jacket. I have washed and dried each of the jackets MANY times, and they still look great! I'm 5'5", 145 lbs & small-chested. The S fits snugly; the M fits very comfortably, with room for a thick sweater underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome, but wrong color! I ordered this jacket in Camelia Red, but be warned, it is definitely more pink! It's a shame because I love the jacket, but am really not all about pink. Will be returning and re ordering in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This is a great little jacket for almost all seasons if you are always cold like me! I wear this jacket a lot and can even wear it under another coat in the super cold weather. Here it goes down to -25C so layers are helpful. I love, love this mighty jacket and most the omni heat products I have purchased from Columbia. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty Lite mighty warm Bought this for my wife. It fits her figure attractively like it shouid You can actually feel yourself warming up when you don this jacket, the Omni insulation is amazing. Other design compliment was the comfort cuffs with thumb holes, that was apparently a big deal for her. Wears it all the time now, perfect Fall jacket for Eastern Canada

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 5th One!! Every closet should have a couple of these in your favorite colors. Great wind cuffs on your wrist, easy entry pockets, good length, and overall nice coat. The medium just fits but I like to have room for winter clothes underneath so I buy large and it is perfect. :)
Date published: 2016-10-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket, but a little big! As the title states, it's nice, but too big. I normally take an XS, but after reading other reviews about Columbia jackets running too small, I decided to get the S. Wish I got the XS. I'm about 5'4", 110 lbs. Other than that, it's not too thick, and is a nice style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering Shape Love the color and shape; I am post 65, so this fit gives me a young attitude! Comfort cuffs and thumb holes are a real plus for walking the dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-to Jacket For several years I have owned two of these Mighty Lite III jackets and these are definitely my GO TO jacket for fall and spring. This spring my favorite purple (Columbia color Quill) jacket got a tear in the fabric right on the front so I need to replace that one. I ordered "Nightshade" which looked purple online but I have just received it and it looks more navy blue to me in person. I can see that there is a shimmer of purple but I not really what I had in mind. I am returning but will purchase another color. One thing I noticed was that the sleeves on the jacket I received seemed to be longer and fuller between the elbow and the wrist than my older jacket. Not really crazy about that. Hoping that will not be the case with the second one I order.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wanted to love.. I wanted to love this jacket. I love the omni heat feature, it is super light and packable. The sizing was off for me though. Super tight in the shoulders and hips, i could barely zip the medium. The large zipped but was too big everywhere else. So bummed! Totally recommend this jacket if you have the right body type!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Just got my jacket. Unfortunately I am writing this review without actually getting to use it yet. It is summer. I bought for next winter. Love how lightweight it is. Glad I read the reviews. Order one size up. Runs small. It fits perfect if you order up a size. Very comfortable. Wore it around the house as soon as I got it. Feels great. Now the true test will be when it gets cold. Cant wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket I love this jacket. It's light weight and very warm. My mom has 1 and loves it too. I had to buy one and am so glad I did. I love the pink color.
