Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit This is an awesome jacket! I have an average height and build and this jacket fits perfectly all around. Super warm as well, can be worn with just a flannel underneath and will provide plenty of warmth. I bought mine in mystery and love the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for winter This is the first and best down jacket i ever purchased. i said is a little large is because it is puff with down feather so you will look like kinda big when wearing it but compare to other down jacket i would say this is very normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from new favorite jacket nice and simple, perfect for a chilly day/night or if its raining. I like the detachable hood and that its not too bulky for a down jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from old-school, heavy warmth I usually buy light, packeable jackets with higher-fill down - but this piece made me realize that there is no substitute for a heavy, thick jacket. That's what this is - its old-school design and weight gives you a comforting hug when you put it on. Even though it doesn't have ultra high-quality down, it's extremely warm - I think Columbia's down+thermal tech actually does work. I naturally pick it over my high-fill puffy coats when I'm heading out in the morning - but tend toward serious, expedition-weight parkas when the mercury drops into the low 20's or teens. That being said, I'd have no reservations about wearing it in very cold conditions with proper layering. It's a great-looking jacket if you favor a workman-style retro look. Out of all my coats, it is certainly the most durable and rugged. If you want something that looks modern, get something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Turbo down bomber Function is good,but I feel not warm at 40 D.it run big as s size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colors not as advertised It's still late summer here in Philly so I don't have a review on the functionality yet. Was a bit disappointed that the contrasting wrist and waist elastic shown on the picture (mine should be deep rust w/grey accents) were not on my jacket, so it was all monochromatic rust. Not bugged enough to return it, but the contrast was one of the things that attracted me to the bomber jacket. Fit and finish was fine. Cost you a star, Columbia!
