Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like it! I got this jacket as the weather transitioned from winter to a chilly spring. I am 5'5", 165lbs and the medium is true to size even with a thin cardigan and scarf underneath. I must say the jacket is too light for weather temps 40 and below. Also, it can get easily stained, for example the tip of the long collar will eventually become darkened/discolored. A wash does the trick and it's back to new. April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! My sister-in-law let me borrow her jacket like this one on a cool evening and I fell in love with it! I am always cold and her jacket warmed me right up--better than any jacket I have ever had. So I had to have one! Based on other reviews, I was afraid the size small would be too snug for me. However, it fit perfectly. I am 5'4" and a curvy 120 lbs. The sleeves are long which is how I like them. I definitely recommend this jacket. March 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Women’s Mighty Lite™ III Jacket I bought this for my sister and she loves it and case closed. March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect light coat I absolutely love this jacket! I got the blue and it is exactly as shown online. I ordered a medium, my usual jacket size, and the sleeves are a little bit longer than I was expecting but I got used to it very quickly. The one downside I found is that there is no elastic to cinch up the bottom a little. I don't think this jacket would get me through the winter but it is perfect for early spring weather! March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the jackets This is a warm, lightweight jacket. Very pleased. Purchased 2, one for myself and one for my granddaughter. She is also pleased, doesn't like heavy jackets. Unbeatable price!!! Excellent purchase!! March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very lightweight but warm The purple is a little brighter and shinier than pictured. I ordered a small based on reviews that say it runs small, and I have room to put a thick sweater under it. Very lightweight but also warm. The neck opening is loose even when zipped. March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My New Fav Jacket! Although very light weight, is extremely warm with the omni-heat insulated inside! My range of motion is great in it while hiking. Not too bulky where you can't be flexible. Great for freezing temperatures or snow. The pockets are super warm also, true to size, and stylish color. LOVE IT! March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The PERFECT Jacket! I LOVE this jacket. I had no idea what I was getting just needed a lightweight jacket to throw on. When it came in I couldn't believe how well made and light it was. I especially like the knit sleeves inside the sleeves to keep cold air out. It's the perfect weight for the south's winter months. February 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My daughter loves it Very light weight but warm..my daughter loves it! Thanks so much Columbia for making great quality products! February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the right coat I loved the color of the Purple Dahlia coat. I am 5'3", 130 lbs and generally the coat fits good. The lower half of the coat is snug, but can still fit a fleece jacket underneath for me. Very wind proof so around ~30s F it should keep you warm. February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Lightweight Jacket I live in west central Florida and bought this jacket for an upcoming trip to Alaska. I was very pleased with the light weight and the inner reflective fabric, which will be great for our Florida winter and the upcoming trip. I ordered up a size as the other reviews said it ran small. This jacket should be easy to layer with and still remain comfortable. I'm very pleased with my purchase, esp. as it was on sale! February 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommended I bought this for my wife, and she is really happy with this due to it's size and weight to carry over where it fits easily. February 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket Great for x-country skiing- not too hot lite but also great for traveling compacts to nothing and is warm. Washes great, dries quickly and a very attractive jacket. January 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great around town coat I needed a lightweight but warm jacket to wear when running out that looked nice but didn't weigh a ton. This is a great jacket. My favorite part besides the omni heat is the wrist sleeves that have thumb holes! Cool pockets too. January 22, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ruby Red is Dark Pink Warning: If you want a red coat, Ruby Red isn't it. The photo on the website is a little misleading. The shade, in reality, is dark pink. Here's a photo of it next to a red blanket. January 20, 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 Perfect Light Weight Jacket I live in Arizona so I wanted something that was stylish, functional yet warm enough for our "winter" here in AZ. The only issue is that I wish it came in black or maybe a tan color. Other than that the jacket is perfect! I ordered it a little larger so that I can wear it with a sweatshirt if I want as well as the fact that I am tall and have longer arms so I wanted to ensure that the length would work. I probably could have gotten away with a medium but didn't want to chance it. January 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight Warmth As a dog walker it's important to be prepared for all types of weather. This Columbia jacket weighs next to nothing and the Omni-heat lining keeps me warm on even the coldest of walks. I particularly love the thumb holes! They work great for keeping your hands warm if you've forgotten gloves. The fit is great for fashion but isn't the best for lots of layers though this jacket is warm enough for near zero temps without additional layers. January 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs Large I have 3 other Columbia Coats all in size Large. Ordered this in a Large and it was very big. The sleeves went down past my knuckles (and I have long arms) and are wide. Ordered the Medium and it fits okay. The sleeve length is better and I can use the thumb holes with ease still but the cut at the hips is narrow. I am 5'11" 145 lbs and have small hips. January 5, 2016
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 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 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 Lightweight and comfortable I really like this jacket. It is lightweight and very comfortable and the blue color is attractive. I haven't used it in winter yet, but I bought it for late fall and early spring traveling from the Midwest to Florida ,so it will be perfect for that. October 26, 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 4 out of 5 by Does not run small Can't comment on the functionality because the size hinders that a lot. The quality is obviously there though, solid seems, symetrical everywhere. Bought a size L because the product description says it runs small AND it's the "active" fit. I'm 135lbs, 5'3, bust / waist / hip of 31 / 25 / 39 so I went up a size in the hip to be safe. Wish I hadn't. Even with a large sweatshirt underneath, I'm still swimming in this coat. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket I purchased this jacket to prepare me to travel to Chicago in the early spring. It is very warm and does a great job cutting the wind. I would say this jacket works best in 25-60 degree temps. Worked out perfect for me. Cannot wait to wear again next winter. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket I really love this jacket... Very light a warm March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light but warm and great for Winter Sports It's important to note this jacket is actually a little lighter in weight then I had expected; they say mighty lite and is it. I had thought it would be a little more insulated then it is, based on the thickness of insulation in my partner's omni-heat jacket and others I'd looked at in person. It also does not offer much wind protection. However, that's OK as I am finding it's perfect for winter sports - as promised, it keeps you warm when you need it but doesn't make you overheat. It has been just right for outdoor ice skating and snow hiking on a warm winter day and I can already tell it will be perfect for curling next season (on a semi-outdoor rink) and x-crountry skiing. Rather then starting off cold then getting too warm - or starting off warm and then getting overheated - this jacket starts out with you comfortable and stays comfortable. It also manages to have a slim cut yet not feel constricting, which is great. On really cold days and on less-active outings, I think it will still be warm enough when layered with a sweatshirt or wool sweater. March 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awsome jacket i bought the blue one for my daughter for Christmas and she loved it. It's warm but not too bulky. She loved it so much that I ended up getting a red one for her as well. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyGolfer I purchased this jacket because I wanted a "light" winter jacket - not those "puffy" ones sold everywhere. It exceeds my expectations! It is extremely warm and very light. Love it! February 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warmer than it looks! I was looking for a warm, but lightweight jacket and this one has been perfect. When I first received it, I could not believe how thin it was, but I went outside in 20 degree weather the next day and my upper body stayed warm under the jacket. This is huge for me because I am always cold. As for fit, I'm 5'1" and have a small, athletic build and I probably could have gotten the XS, but I bought the small. It's bigger over thinner clothing, but buying the small meant that I could wear this over a sweatshirt or a thick sweater and not feel like my arms couldn't move. February 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by not as warm as I'd hoped Great jacket overall. The red hibiscus is slightly lighter than shown online. Will be great when temps get above freezing. Would recommend pairing with a wind breaker over it, as wind rips right through this. The omni heat lining does a great job of keeping you warm, but it takes some time to get body heat generated to get the reflective process in motion. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mighty Lite III I love this jacket! I will be ordering 2 more in different colors. It does run a little small, so you might want to consider ordering a size up. February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best jacket I read all reviews and decided to buy one size up, had to return. I bought a medium size and have plenty of room to add another sweater underneath. Had this jacket with New England temps of low 20s this winter, and was very comfortable not feeling cold at all. Love it, this is my second jacket have a black and red, excellent buy. February 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Habiscus Red Mighty Lite III The jacket itself is great. Seems light weight and warm. Love the thumb holes. However, habiscus red is definitely not red. It seems more neon pink with a hint of orange. I do not completely dislike the color, but it is a terrible color on me and I will be returning it. It could be this is why the habiscus red color was on sale and the blue was not. February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by functional and fashionable I ordered this jacket in large in the Red hibiscus. The color is amazing, and I love the thumbhole cuffs. It does fit a little on the small side, I normally wear a medium, but the large fits well for winter wear. I specifically purchased this jacket because a friend gave me a Columbia vest with the Omni-Heat lining and I can't live without it. The lining keeps you warm, while allowing the jacket to be super light. Would definitely recommend. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOMEN’S MIGHTY LITE™ III JACKET Light, soft, comfortable and WARM. I love this jacket and will buy more! February 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Late Fall / Early Spring Jacket Not as warm as I wanted it to be. Not a freezing temp jacket by any means! February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 2nd Mighty Lite jacket Last year I bought the longer version of this and really love it. It wears well, keeps you warm in any weather and is easy to pack. I know I will like the new short version I just purchased. February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by warm, flattering, lighweight jacket I bought one of these for myself and one for my sister, and we both love them! The jacket is very thin and light but incredibly warm. The fit is flattering and easy to layer. It's easy care with machine wash and dry and has come out of the laundry beautifully. I wish I had one in every color! February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket. These are awesome jackets. I already had one so this was bought for a friend. Great color. They do run a little small but it is noted so buy accordingly. February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top product Just love it, this is a top series February 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by My Omni Sheild Jacket The jacket is so warm and light weight. I had the vest and was so happy with it I ordered the jacket. My only complaint is the thumb holes in the sleeves, I don't like them and did not know they were there when I ordered. Overall though, I'm very happy with it. February 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy My jacket is exactly what I was looking for. It's made of quality materials and has all that I wanted in a jacket. I bought the coral color coat and it's an awesome color. The thumb holes are an amazing addition to the coat. I would definitely buy another Columbia product. February 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket. Light weight yet warm without being hot. Will purchase another one if goes on sale. Love this jacket. Light weight yet warm without being hot. Will purchase another one if goes on sale. February 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I'm sad I fell in love this this jacket but unfortunately it didn't fit. And they were all out of stock! I'm very bummed out but my sister fell in love with it too and now it's hers. I just wished I would have fit me but now I know to order one size smaller. February 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great warm light coat This coat is great. The omni-heat technology is great and keeps me warm on the colder than normal Ohio temperatures. The fit is small which the website stated and was helpful. I got pink it is very bright and attractive. This is really stylish and great to wear with any outfit or to any function. The lightest, warmest coat I've ever had! January 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite jacket! This light, thin jacket is my absolute favorite. It's warm without all the bulk. I bought the corral color and get compliments every time. On very windy days, wear an outer shell with it. January 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Color Great looking light weight jacket. Able to move around easily. Comfortable. January 21, 2015
