Rated 5 out of 5 by light and warm Great Jacket. It is very light weight and super warm. Another great product from Columbia. This is an excellent layer under a rain shell or stand alone jacket when the sun is out. It's very stylish too! April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful spring jacket Here in NW Montana, we have a long spring season, so an appropriate jacket is a must. I have worn it in temps from 25-50 degrees and been comfortable. The stormy blue color is a pleasant change from winter's dark colors. This jacket is snug in the waist and roomy in the shoulders. April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicely tailored and still feminine This jacket is very light and yet extremely warm. I have worn it a few times and am very comfortable in it. I am normally a size 8 and wear a small in other products, but chose large for this jacket are reading other reviews. I'm glad I did, it fits well, just a little loose which means I can wear a thicker mid layer when I am in ski country. Great buy, I am very please with it. March 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Jacket!! I read reviews about the jacket running small and in my case that's not true I wear a medium and bought a medium it fits perfect I'm 5'8" 115 pounds small chested with long a** "monkey" arms lol I also live in Maine and been freezing out today it's a whole 5 degrees and this jacket is keeping me toasty warm way warmer than my bulky down jacket I am in love thinking of buying another in black I got ruby red and it's not red red it's a pinkish coral color it pretty definitely recommend February 10, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed I had high hopes for the warmth of this jacket but feel very let down. I cannot wear it below 35F without feeling chilly. Even with a cardigan underneath it isn't warm enough for too much below freezing. The quality and weight are fine but there is not enough warmth. January 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved it It was thinner than I thought it would be but my daughter in law loved it. Perfect for her. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Women's mighty lite 3 Love this jacket! So many compliments! I am going to buy another one! The one I bought previous is a white. No heavy at all! December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lightweight Jacket I bought this to take with my on a trip to Iceland in May. I'm spending 8 days in Paris first so I have to pack for both climates. I won't have room to pack my regular Columbia convertible jacket. Super light, so warm and looks great too, I wear for casual nights out. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hate the cold-Love this jacket! I am not a fan of cold weather so was looking for a thin, light weight but warm jacket. I have longer arms and was concerned about the sleeve length but was pleased that they are the perfect length -no cold wrists. The Omni heat lining works great! Thinking of investing in the boots with omni heat lining as well. I highly recommend this product. Arrived quickly and just as described. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat I have this coat in black and absolutely love it. I ordered it in the purple dahlia color thinking it looked more maroon online, it is definitely purple. It is slightly shiny purple, so I am returning it. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazingly warm. I live in the Front Range of Colorado. This jacket is so light but extremely warm. I have worn it in rain and snow (walking to and from my car and on my daily walk), and I am not chilled at all. The extended cuff with the hand warmer that has a thumb cut out is added warmth with or without gloves. It ran about a size small so I went with the medium instead of the small. November 27, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fit I tried this product on in the store and it fit perfect but the jacket had a stain on it with no others same size so i ordered it on the web but the jacket that came was way smaller than the one I tried in store :( I still want to find one but in store would be better than on line to verify fit November 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by so thin but so warm I love this jacket.my friend in Colorado recommended it .I loved it so muchI bought one ofr all of my girls for Christmas November 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and cute! This jacket fits very well. I am 5' 9", 145 pounds and it is not usually easy for me to find jackets with sleeves long enough! So far it has been very warm, but lightweight enough to still move around in. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved it! I needed a lighter-weight coat that would be small enough that I could roll up and fit into my carry on luggage, yet warm enough that I would stay warm without having to layer a ton of clothes underneath, while stylish enough that I could wear this to a work function. This coat fit all of my criteria and more! It did everything it was designed to do and it sure kept me warm with the space blanket liner. The thumb holes helped keep my hands warm when I realized I forgot to pack gloves. I love this coat and I'm so happy to be able to make this part of my fall/early winter wardrobe! November 3, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Light and warm but tight It's light and warm and looks great with most tight pants, but it runs small. I'ma 34C, ordered a medium and have to suck my chest in when zipping up. There's only space for a thin base layer underneath, so I can't wear it to work over a business suit or over a warm sweater. Rated this a 3 because other companies don't charge shipping and covers refund shipping too. October 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Little Jacket I was looking for something less bulky this year but still wanted to stay warm, so far so good. I like that all the pockets zip, it has Omni Heat, which you feel...means I don't have to bulk up on layers to stay warm, so I can actually move around freely. The fit is nice, and I receive lots of compliments when I am wearing it. Originally I had bought the large based on several reviews I read on different sites which all said it runs too small... this is not true, and I had to exchange it for the medium which fits perfect! this jacket is true to Canadian size, so go with that. October 20, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Its okay. In Fargo ND it gets pretty chilly so this jacket may not have been the best choice. Though it kept the bite of the cold out I wasn't completely warm. I still like the jacket and will wear it this fall but I will be purchasing a different WINTER jacket soon. September 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product We like the materials that make this product, however what we liked the most was the fast delivery from the time we place the order on line, it was delivered next day!! Amazing! August 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Zipper not for a liner Fantastic jacket. Light and very warm. Only recommend that Columbia make all jackets available to use as a liner for their waterproof shells. This zipper is small & not compatible May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun Jacket I love the blue color, bright and cheerful. This jacket is very lightweight but warmer than you'd think. Sleeves are long but that's okay with the inner wrist liners. May 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product, meets my needs exactly I consider myself a true size 4, and struggle ordering clothing on line. In this case, the fit was perfect, and the jacket is performing exactly as I wished. I bought it to wear to the barn for riding; it is a light, but very warm spring/fall jacket that will fit nicely under my bulky winter coat for extra warmth during the winter. It fits well enough and is flexible enough that I can ride and work in it. Lovely product, definitely recommend it. April 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mighty Lite jacket III Fitted perfect with a little extra wear great buy!!! April 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleased Alot thinner than I thought nevertheless I'm pleased with it as I will be wearing thin & thick long sleeve under it in my south dakota weather. Even thou Im a true size medium, I ordered a large due to reading other reviews stating it's a close fit....happy with my decision! Ground shipping took longer than I anticapted. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite go anywhere jacket I love this coat so much, that I replaced after I lost my original coat of same model at a conference. Things I love, 1. Great style, not bulky. 2. Omniheat 3. Thumb holes 4. Wash and hang dry overnight...ready in AM 5. Quality made ( should have listed #1) 6. The blue is pretty..original was black. Both nice colors. I love this coat. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best jackets! I bought the longer version of this jacket 2 years ago up in NC and it's been my go to coat for everything! It's so light and well insulated which is such a great function duo and I love the fact that the sleeves are more closed so air doesn't blow up the sleeves keeping you warmer. I would recommend this jacket/coat for anyone anywhere because it is that versatile ;) The price in the long run is worth it :) March 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacket I'm a ski instructor and wear it under my jacket and sm toasty warm. Wear it by itself also and love it! March 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lives up to it's name! I bought this jacket to replace a long sleeve but lightweight jacket I had been wearing to and from the gym because it just wasn't keeping me warm enough in the winter. I wanted something that wasn't bulky and that was small/thin enough to fit in the small cubby/locker but still kept me warm. After much research I purchased this one and am very satisfied w it. It's stylish and form-fitting but also warm. Best of both worlds! I live in Missouri where the weather can be 60 degrees one day and then "feeling like" -25 the next. This works for either because it doesn't make me too hot when it's warmer. I had a coat w cuffs previously and although these are different w thumb holes and want to pull back through the jacket when I take it off, it's not a deal breaker. I'm also 5'7" and about 150 lbs and thought a medium worked well. I went by the size chart. March 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by No Bulk! I was looking for a winter jacket that allowed me movement and no bulk, especially while driving. This jacket does just that! I also love that it fits really well over my bustier chest which is always a huge factor when buying a jacket online! The only con I have with the jacket is I am a short girl and I have a really short torso so the jacket is a little snug at my hips but not enough to not be able to wear it. Overall I am very happy with it. February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light Weight Yet Warm Based on how thin/light weight this jacket is, I was afraid it would not keep me warm enough at 30-40 degrees. However, it's been a great find and has kept me comfortable even at a breezy 29 degrees with just a long-sleeve t-shirt underneath and a hat on. I've noticed I sometimes feel a bit "cool" but never cold. This seems to be because the jacket doesn't have a lot of fluff - like down - to hold in warmth. The heat of your body is just reflected back to you from the lining. I've come to trust the jacket and love the fact that it packs into a tiny space in my backpack. I can fit into a Small, but chose a Medium to allow for a fleece pullover underneath, just in case. It breathes well, looks sharp, and the sleeves and neck provide good coverage. Highly recommended. January 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight and Warm; Runs Small Based on reviews, I ordered an extra large instead of my usual large. I am tall (6') with very long arms, and this jacket fits me perfectly in length and arm length. The body is a little loose, but the tapered style keeps it from looking frumpish. My jacket arrived during a cold snap - 10 degrees on average - and it keeps me warm. I absolutely love this jacket. I'm tempted to order in another color, and that's saying a lot because I'm pretty frugal, lol! January 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Jacket - Mighty Lite III I bought the jacket for my daughter who requested it for Christmas. She really loves the color and fit. I would recommend this product to anyone. January 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for late fall and early winter! I really like this jacket. It's great for those cool days where a hoodie isn't quite enough but you don't want anything too bulky. I would have given this jacket a 5 star rating but I was as bit frustrated with the sleeve length. I'm 5'10 and usually wear a medium. I went up to a large to get more length which I got but still can't comfortably use the thumb holds. The sleeves are long enough but just barely. So if you have longer arms like me and length is as issue place your order accordingly. January 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by warm, light and gorgeous color It was hard for me to decide to make this a barn jacket because it is so pretty! It is very warm and a nice alternative to the usual heavy bulky Barn clothing. As a recreational rider who doesn't need clothing with quite the durability of the folks who work at the ranch, I decided to take a chance with this and I love it. Went for a very cold ride with friends on Christmas, and I added a heavy vest but my arms were still plenty warm. It also has a thumb hole in the lining which is great with gloves! December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It! This was a Christmas gift for my daughter in law. She loved it! It fit perfectly & the bright color looked great on her. She was so excited to have such a good looking jacket & was excited to go back to work wearing it. I ordered online from Columbia & shipment arrived promptly as stated at time of order. December 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best find for keeping me warm! I am always cold & live is Southern Alberta. I usually wear numerous layers, even while inside. This jacket is light weight, comfortable, stylish & so very warm. I wear it with only a t-shirt & stay very toasty. December 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied Customer i got the black color in this coat but before I bought it I read the reviews. I usually wear a large but everyone was saying to get a size larger than what you usually wear because it runs small so I bought an XL. Fits perfect and keeps me warm! I will be purchasing another color in the near future. December 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lite but mighty I do admit I was intimidated when I got this jacket shipped to me, it was very lite and thin. I thought pretty pricey for a windbreaker. I of course thought might as well give it a shot, see what all the positive reviews were ranting about. This jacket is awesome, it really does keep you warm. I may be cold everywhere else but not my arms and core. The coral glow is very bright but no less beautiful. I love the omni-heat technology, it really works! December 18, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Small and light I first bought a Mighty Lite III three years ago. The sizing was changed, even though the jacket is still named the same. I ordered an XL, like the jacket I already have but it was smaller. So I looked at the Plus sizes and found that Columbia charges $20 more for 1X plus that is actually sized SMALLER than the XL. And the measurements of Plus are not proportional. The product was changed but NOT IMPROVED. Very disappointed. December 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mighty Lite III Lite Womens jacket Well I tried 2 jackets. They are not made for women with hips. Too narrow around the bottom of the jacket. December 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmest light jacket ever! I am so warm in this jacket that I actually wear tank tops under it! I actually can roll my window down for cold fresh air when driving because I'm always very warm! I should have ordered a medium because I'm a small but I love this jacket because it keeps me super warm. November 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat! I have this jacket in black and the harbor blue. Just note that the blue is more of a purple-ish/royal blue than what it looks online. Very pretty color. I love how it is so light and easy to move in, yet so WARM. I usually wear an extra-small in clothes, but I got the small so I could wear sweaters under it and because my arms are a little long for my size. It fits great! It's slightly big on me through the waist, but it's cut well enough that it doesn't look boxy. The sleeve length is perfect! I'm fighting the urge to buy this coat in every color! November 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Fall Jacket Very light weight and keeps me warm while I walk the dogs. On colder days, around 40 or so, you can really feel the wind. If this was a wind stopper as well, I would have given it a 5. It also runs a bit tight in the hips but overall, it's a nice fall jacket. November 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pretty Blue This jacket is awesome! It fits me true to size and i am already wearing it:) I'm so happy with my purchase. It is lightweight and thin but the thermal heat keeps me very warm. October 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Jacket Love this coat!! Very warm without the bulk. I purchased a red one a couple of years ago--still in great shape--just wanted a different color. Glad it's still available! October 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sizing? Omni-Heat? I've read a lot of reviews because of all the sizing comments. I looked at the sizing chart and it stated I would be a medium. I ran down to my local REI and tried on both the M and the L. I find the jacket to fit true to size, if not a tad loose. I typically wear a M in tops and the M Columbia jacket fit great. I have had a Columbia snow jacket with Onmi-Heat for 3 years and I can attest to the claims that the technology keeps you warmer. September 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great travel coat The coat itself is good quality, light weight, the cuff features a thumb hole so no wind can go up sleeves, zips easily, and nice high collar keeps the heat in and wind and cold out. It is nice because it is so light and easy to move around in. Not bulky like most coats. Love the reflective lining! It does keep you nice and warm. The Cons are the sizing. I bought a Med., and Large because of the mixed reviews on the sizing. I am 5'4" and 157lbs with broad shoulders and size C bra. The Med. was too tight across my chest to zip up. The large was perfect except for I was wearing a t-shirt when I tried it on. If I had on a sweater or hoodie the coat could have been too constricting all over. I had my daughter-in-law try them on. She has an hourglass figure with size D bra. She usually wears a Med. and she too liked the large size fit but felt the same way (if she was wearing a thicker shirt the coat would have been too small all over. I would say if your not a slim build or have a larger chest size go with at least a large or X large size. I was disappointed I had to send the coats back and reorder. It was on sale and I got it at a great price but the shipping (you have to pay to ship the items back out of your own pocket) cost me more than what I saved in the sale price. Wish this company gave its customers a prepaid label. August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket I got this jacket right at the beginning of February. I ended up wearing it during the coldest months this year. It was lite weight, yet very warm. I should note that it took a little while for the jacket to warm up as it reflects your body heat back to you so I might feel cold when I first went outside. I ordered the xsmall because after having tried on the small in a store I realized that it was too big on me even if I wore a sweater under. I am very slim and the jacket doesn't have a slim enough cut for me to be comfortable in the body with a small. I really love the jacket. I got a bright blue and I'm so happy I decided not to get black. In the winter having a little color is a good thing. I recommend this jacket. June 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good looking, but not very warm. I bought the white jacket and its indeed smart. But its not warm enough. I stay in New Jersey and it was a cold winter for us this year. And even with the heat reflective technology and down fill this jacket did not serve the purpose. Its only good for temperatures in 30s... April 9, 2014
