I will never go back This is the most amazing jacket you will ever own! I've never owned down before, but it changed my life. I was kind of skeptical of the shiny heat reflecting material on the inside too, but it's proven to be very effective. It's cute enough for every day wear around the city, yet it also works for camping trips and even has a little stuff sack so I can throw it in my pack once it gets warm. It is the only thing that has ever been able to keep me warm on my below-freezing morning bike rides to school. LOVE! March 24, 2014
perfect purple The jacket was a beautiful vibrant color and so light weight it feels like it could float! Hope it works well in Ohio cold! March 22, 2014
Excellent jacket Excellent jacket very light wearing and keeps you warm . Fit is slightly small recemond ordering one size larger . Normally I wear a medium but looking at the other reviews I ordered a large. Love this jacket excellent fit would highly recemond it March 15, 2014
Awesome This jacket is amazing- light weight and warm, cut well for women. February 25, 2014
Red Hibiscus more orange,love it Been looking for a 800 fill power ultra light down waist length jacket with sleeves for awhile after I found a vest I love.I can say this is great value for the performance,and meets my criteria for an interior pocket to hold a smart phone.Only four stars because I'm not sure what kind of wind chill it can handle,or long term quality.It'll be impressive if it functions like my waterproof [tech professional] ski jacket where I use a fleece layer for the coldest days.Given the color,I am not surprised if some darker feathers show through.I said it ranked smaller in fit because I wanted to wear a sweater,or fleece under it,and still maintain range of motion. February 21, 2014
Love this jacket!! Not only is this Powerfly Down Jacket warm and cozy, it's NOT bulky and fits well. It fits into a small pouch when not worn, so very easy to pack; it is lightweight! The color purple is amazing, and I do get lots of compliments when wearing this. February 14, 2014
Disappointed - Not the color I ordered the Red Hibiscus jacket but the color is not what I was expecting, it is more like a Deep Coral jacket. It also looks cheaper than a U$ 220 jacket, because you can see some dark feathers through the fabric. The jacket is comfortable, fits great and its very light. February 12, 2014
In love with my new down jacket! I bought the red hibiscus and it is a bright coral leaning more toward orange than red, and its very flattering for my fair skin and blond hair. I tend to stay away from reds, but the previous comments explaining the true color helped me select this one. I'm a size 4, 5'7", 130# skiier and ballerina. I'm able to wear a fitted fleece over a fitted T-shirt under this coat no problem. The sleeves are my favorite, long, and cozy. The lightweight thin coat keeps me toasty warm walking around in 25 degree Colorado. It is really surpising how light it is, and i love how little room it takes in the suitcase. I'm wearing it on my next ski trip to see how it does. I think this would be good to have in black as well, and will consider a future purchase. February 4, 2014
Down feathers showed through While I liked the color and fit, the jacket showed splotchy dark areas which at first I thought were stains. Upon further inspection I determined these dark spots to be dark feathers or down showing through the lighter colored jacket. I decided to keep the jacket but I would purchase a darker colored jacket next time. January 31, 2014
Lightweight and fashionable It was tough to decide which color to choose. I ended up with the hyper purple. It's a beautiful color. I took it to NYC with me on 1/24/2014 when the average temp in low 20's with wind chill factor making it even worse. With one base layer I found this jacket not warm enough. I needed a light base layer, a turtle neck sweater, and a light wind breaker to be worn underneath this jacket to walk around NYC to be comfortable. Having said that I am usually cold all the time, and coming from southern CA my experience may not be true for others that are used to cold weather. Nonetheless I love this jacket! It's so light and with all the clothes underneath I don't look all bundled up. January 27, 2014
Great, but..... Great jacket, warm, light weight. My only but is in the fit. The jacket runs small, had to order an extra large , usual size is large in a jacket to allow room for sweater. The sleeves are very long in proportion to the sizing. January 13, 2014
New jacket for Christmas I was a little disappointed at first as it doesn't look like it's going to be very warm. I had an outdoor event to attend where they were forecasting temps in the 20s. Wore my new coat but brought along a spare, just in case - I definitely did not need it! It kept me very warm and had the added benefit of being stylish and not bulky. My only "issue" was that the way the seams are sewn inside made the sleeves a little uncomfortable when I wore it with short sleeves. I would also have preferred a slightly longer length but as far as keeping me warm, that it did! Sleeves are also a little long - maybe they're supposed to be this way so you can pull them down over your hands? Not sure. January 6, 2014
Love this coat but it is losing feathers I love, love, love this coat. I wore it for a week straight. My daughters and sister-in-law are planning to purchase one. The only problem is that it does seem to lose feathers. Not a lot ...but it makes me nervous b/c I wear it all the time. January 2, 2014
Great Three Season Jacket Great jacket that is light weight and easy to pack. I was a little surprised at how thin the down was but it seems to warm enough so far. December 29, 2013
Powerfly The jacket fits well without any sense of restriction in movements while keeping me perfectly warm. The comfort of the transition from outside to inside is seamless. December 26, 2013
Warm and Lightweight I got this for my wife. She loves it. It is very lightweight and looks great. No regrets. December 26, 2013
Super warm! This is my second one of these. Had to get a second color because I love the fit & style! December 23, 2013
Wonderful Jacket This down Omni-heat jacket is my new favorite! It's a go-to during the cold weather. Great fit, wonderful function. Omni-heat is a new discovery for me, and I love it! It really does keep you warmer. The fit of the Powerfly jacket is definitely a more slender, active fit than the Mighty Lite. This was perfect for me, as I have more of a petite frame. December 20, 2013
tight under arms I ordered this jacket because it was not available in any stores within 100 miles of my house. I liked the jacket when it arrived but it was very tight under my arms. I am 5'5, 130 lbs 34b-c and I ordered a medium. I am returning the jacket. It was just too uncomfortable with my arms feeling like they were being pushed up and cut into. Otherwise the jacket fit well. I liked the comfort cuffs. I was sad to have to return it. I think if I had gone up a size it might have helped under the arms but then would have been too big everywhere else. December 19, 2013
Great jacket w/some small issues I am between sizes (M/L) for most Columbia products and I initially purchased the large due to the reviews saying it ran small. Strangely enough, the large was really big. I could fit a sweatshirt and sweater under it, I had so much room. The medium is a bit snug with two light layers under, but works so much better. I kept the medium. As others have stated, the sleeves are long, but that's normal for me. I have also noticed that the feathers are coming out (it's why my rating lost a star). And on a black jacket, it's very noticeable. In 35+ degree weather, it's great alone. At about 30 and under, I found I needed another layer, especially if there was any wind. The cold and wind would make the jacket cold (outer part) and then the inside wouldn't do much for me. I don't feel the wind, but I feel the chill. December 18, 2013
Exactly what I wanted! This is one of the best winter jackets I have ever owned. I have been wearing Columbia jackets for the last 10 years and this is by far my favorite. It is lightweight, warm, and flattering. The red hibiscus is a a beautiful color, more of a light orange/pinkish color. December 15, 2013
Would recommend jacket to others So far have worn it for trail running in single digits and below zero wind chills, with two thermal layers and one base layer. I am a person who is normally VERY cold and was not cold at all with this jacket. I tried to wear it shopping (outdoor outlet mall) with just a sweater and found it not to be warm enough. However, it could have been because it is a small and I could have use something a bit more form fitting (or I should have gotten a X-S instead). Overall it is a great addition to my trail and road running gear. December 13, 2013
To light as a feather! The function of the jacket is perfect. It definitely keeps you warm. The only flaw I have is the color. I purchased the jacket in rip tide (baby blue). Like other reviews, you can see the feathers. At first I thought I got it dirty, but when I looked closer, it's the feathers that I see. I'm sure on the darker colors you won't be able to see it. For what you pay for, I shouldn't see this. December 3, 2013
the lightest jacket I've owned This is the lightest jacket I've owned and I got the purple color which is exactly what I was expecting. I live in Pittsburgh, PA and despite the winds, I was very comfortable wearing it outdoors. The sleeves may seem a little long for some, however I love my sleeves to be a little longer in a coat. December 2, 2013
great warm light jacket Look forward to wearing it skiing this winter / spring. I bought the Hibiscus Red so my family will not lose me on the slopes :)) November 26, 2013
Very flattering I bought the jacket in deep blush. It's a fun, vibrant color and I got lots of compliments on the way it contoured to my figure. It's the perfect "puffy" coat, without being too puffy and making you look like a marshmallow. Very warm and comfortable. I'm very glad I purchased it and highly recommend it! November 14, 2013
Great Jacket I received my Powerfly about a week ago now. When I first opened the box I was a bit disappointed in the color. I ordered the Red hibiscus. The color is a red/orange/pink/coral depending on the light. I hated the color at first and almost returned it, but have gotten many compliments since the color is unusual. The feathers do not show through the outer layer. I am 130lbs @ 5'4". It fits perfectly in the torso and shoulders. Yes, the arms are a bit too long but not a problem. I love this jacket, very warm, comfortable with nice finishing touches in the pockets, zipper chin guard and it packs down small in the provided stuff sack. November 6, 2013
I love it!! This coat works very well. For how light it is, it keep you very warm. This is my favorite coat. Its a bet pricey but your getting your money worth. I'm from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and we get all types of weather, even low as teens and wind chills at single digits and this coat still kept me toasty. All my designer coats got booted for this coat. I would recommend this to anyone and happy I bought it. November 3, 2013
Love it! Super light-weight and warm. I have this jacket plus a big bulky, knee-length "puffer" from another maker. But, this one is warmer and easier to pack. (I travel often for work so this is key for me and the primary reason I made the purchase.) If Columbia makes a mid-thigh length for next season, I'll be buying that one, too. (Hint, hint.) Be careful with your bracelets. The cuff liners are great for keeping out the wind but they will pull your bracelets off so be aware. April 24, 2013
Feathers show through! Unfortunately, the Wild Melon color has the same problem that so many others complained of. You can see the dark feathers straight through the fabric. I was soooo bummed because the jacket fit like it was made for me! I really, really wanted to keep the jacket but it looked filthy because of the gray spots that showed through the whole front of the jacket. Boo hoo. :-( PS. I ordered a Medium. I'm 5'11", 145lbs, have a shorter torso and long arms and it fit perfectly! I probably wouldn't have been able to fit a bulky sweatshirt under it though. March 19, 2013
this is a great jacket!!!!! I love this jacket, it is light weight, it is very comfortable, it's breathable fabric - i don't sweat (very important to me!!!). For the price this is a great great jacket and an excellent deal. March 18, 2013
Fashionable and Functional, this jacket has it all! Light weight, zipper closures, inside pockets, storage pouch included. I'm a freeze baby from the Great Northwest. This jacket keeps me toasty warm on those sub-zero, windy days. When I am indoors shopping, I can tuck my jacket away in the handy porch and throw it in my bag. I highly recommend this jacket :-) March 4, 2013
Powerfly I got this jacket in Wild Melon. It fits perfectly! Not too bulky and very lightweight. The color is beautiful and it seems to keep me warm. I have received so many compliments. BUT...the dark feathers show through and make the jacket appear dirty! Very disappointing :( February 28, 2013
LIght as a feather I love this jacket. I bought it because so many people said the sleeves are long, and they are! But that is fantastic because they don't come up on your wrist when you put your hands out in front of you and I love that. I normally wear a med in my shirts so I bought medium and large to try them both and the medium fit like a glove. If I have a super bulky sweatshirt underneath it is a little too small, but for normal winter layers it is perfect. I love how well it stuffs into a small space in my suitcase and how light it is when I put it on. Good job Columbia, you got this one right. February 26, 2013
Excellent winter jacket It is amazingly warm in such light weight! I have alway been not so into down jackets as they make you look clumsy. But i noticed this one is particularly thin with high technology built in and I deciede to give it a shot. It worked out perfectly! I wore it during my whole ski trip with only a tshirt and cardigan inside and I felt warm the whole time! Incredible! Besides, the melon color is gorgeously stunning. Love love! February 15, 2013
Amazing Jacket This is such an amazing jacket. The color and fit are exactly what I expected. It keeps me warm without being bulky -- perfect for everyday winter wear in the city, as well as hiking in the woods. I love it! February 15, 2013
My first Columbia Like the other reviews, the ice gray does come off a little "cheap" looking becuase you can seee the down through the top layer. I love the way it fits and am happy with the warmth despite it's super thin design. Overall, a great jacket. February 14, 2013
beautiful jacket love the color and function. just found it a little snug around the abs. the next size up would be too big. I can manage. glad it was on sale or I might have returned it February 13, 2013
Hope it will be great When received, it fits great and looks great. It's a nice bright grass green. Then, I discovered a stripe across one sleeve of dark fabric or something inside. I'm in the midst of trying to work that out with Columbia for a trade or something. When I get the final jacket, it seems like it will be great. February 11, 2013
Women's Omni Heat Down Jacket Ideal weight and warmth for travel. February 10, 2013
Women's Powerfly Hybrid Down Jacket Just received yesterday as I have been out of town. The jacket is to tight I will have to return. February 10, 2013
Nice jacket but too small This is a nicely made jacket but it runs a bit small. I bought a medium for my wife but it was fairly snug on her with not enough room for any layering underneath. She is not a Large in any type of apparel. I recommend the jacket but keep in mind it runs small. February 7, 2013
Wms Powerfly jacket This is a great coat. Very happy with the fit and the warmth. The color is beautiful and so many people have told me how nice it looks! From WI January 30, 2013
function and fashion This jacket is on. looks great and fits great cut for a women. Function is great very warm thermal liner really does make a difference the inner cuffs are also a nice touch well thought out. I do have other brands like this category. This jacket is by far the best. January 29, 2013
Runs small I bought this jacket as a Christmas gift for my wife. I ordered a large since she recently lost 74lbs...she couldn't even close it to zipper it up. her current size is a medium top. Had to be returned. January 12, 2013
It's like a toaster! Warm on the inside, sleek on the outside. This jacket is the BEST! First of all, the wild melon color is what drew me to it-- LOVE! When I tried it on at the PDX store, I was sold! But the few days after the holidays when it was in the 20s and I was as warm as could be without any bulk is what has me writing this review. We went for a hike and everyone kept asking me "are you going to be warm enough in just that?" I figured the only way to know was try. Not only was I warm enough, but the way the fabric breathes I was never too warm. It was a great trial run. And, for the daring, I say wear it inside out--- that inside fabric is fashion forward!! January 8, 2013
Looks Great, Not Warm Enough I bought this for my fiancé and she loves the style, color and the way it fits, but it simply doesn't keep her torso warm enough in 0 to 7 C weather with a shirt, sweater and scarf underneath. She wanted to keep it clean so she only wore it in clean, non-dusty cities; yet, the cuffs still got slightly dirty, perhaps to be expected with an almost-white jacket, but she's extremely clean and careful and it was only a week of use at this point. January 3, 2013
Yellow is see-through I like this jacket but the fit doesn't work for me. The M was too tight under the arms & across the hips & chest while the sleeves were too long. I tried the large, and the body fit better, but it still pinched under the arms and the sleeves were of course even longer. They were out of the Sea grape in L so I tried the yellow. When I took it out of the box, I thought I'd already gotten dirty fingerprints all over it. But when I looked closer, I saw that it was the darker down feathers showing through. I didn't want a jacket that always looked dirty as well as not fitting properly, so I'm returning it and also giving up on this jacket altogether. :( January 1, 2013
Women's Powerfly Attributes - light weight, great mobility, yet surprising warm. Every bit, as described. Exposing this product to the windy winter weather of SW Montana. Work in a sporting good store, & see many name brands to compare. This one's a winner! December 30, 2012
Did not like color I got this in Ice Grey and did not like the color. The coloring almost looked like it had bled out in the creases like tie-dye. I could also see through the material (I don't think the other colors would do this) and see the feather outlines which I thought made it look cheap. Sizing was accurate as I usually wear medium and the medium fit nicely. Jacket was warm when I tried it on, but was not quite what I was looking for in a "poofy" jacket. December 26, 2012
