Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Casual Jacket Great jacket for staying warm for my Minnesota winters. I recommend getting a 1 or 2 full sizes smaller than what you may be used to. No need to layer anything more than a single under shirt with this jacket. I am just over 6ft and 190lbs and I like the fit of the medium, which is surprising as I am usually a L or XL for most clothes. Jacket was a little too warm while I was skiing so I recommend this jacket as a commuter/casual everyday jacket. But I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from overall good/great coat! Sleeves feel a little light on the down warmth, but pretty much the same in other similar coats from other brands. The main zipper sometimes is hard to zip up. Also, I wish on the main zipper there was a bigger leather "gripp/handle". I think on the chest side pocket it has a bigger leather grip/handle than the main zipper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket! Bought this for a trip to Iceland this November and I think it'll work great! Super warm, long, and roomy enough for mid layers. Can't be the winter sale price! Excited to put it to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs a Little Large A five star product. The quality and the functionality are excellent except it runs a little large. So, I wear like 2 or 3 layers of thick sweatshirts, hoodie, or sweaters to prevent cold snowy winter gust sneaking in from the bottom part.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I walk and take the city train as part of the daily commute to and from work, and was looking for a heavy duty jacket or parka for the harsher side of winter... I looked around at different stores/brands and decided on this jacket. It took me a few wears to warm up to this jacket, at first it didn't seem as warm, but once you get going it truly warms up with you. It is like wearing a shield, on the days when the weather is harshly cold, snowing, with lots of cold air, I don't feel the cold at all, I don't feel anything, I just get cold in my face and hands (I need to get gloves) but otherwise it really protects you from the elements. It also looks really good, makes you feel like a million bucks. I am very happy with this jacket and I would recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very large Bought the jacket hoping it would be warm. It turned out to be okay, it wasn't super warm but it would do the job if you packed a fleece under. I wore it in the snow on top of a short sleeved T-shirt and i wasn't cold. However, the size runs super large. I bought a small and it fit me like a large would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and functional! I bought my husband this coat to replace a down coat from another brand from a few years ago. This coat has a much better fit and is much lighter in weight while still being EVEN warmer than his last coat. The coat runs a bit big, but has several spots to cinch the coat so it still gives a little bit of shape. This coat has been amazing in the VERY cold and snowy Chicago winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Men's Alpine jacket Between the reflective interior and the down fill, this coat will definitely keep you warm. It is not without its flaws though. For some reason the zipper that attaches the hood to the jacket is only half the distance of the opening. There maybe a reason for this but, in fact, it just allows a fresh breeze to blow onto your neck and head. The coat comes with a two-way zipper which is more of a nuisance than a benefit. The zipper starts 5-1/4 inches from the bottom seam of the coat. Once zipped the bottom zipper can be opened further. It seems to me that 5-1/4 inches is more than enough to allow for free movement. More importantly, the two-way zipper makes it difficult to attach and then close the coat. Minor issues both, but you would expect more from a garment that costs almost $300.00.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from $104 The quality, comfort, warmth of this parka is unmatched would hesitate to suggest purchasing it under $200

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat My husband is 6.0 220 pounds. I ordered the large and it fits him perfectly. He prefers the coat without the hood so I'm glad it's detachable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome winter Parka I've owned other brand jackets and my last winter jacket lasted me 23 years. Put this on and fell in love with this jacket. This I should last me till I'm buried in it. Highly recommend although selfishly I don't want to see anyone else in my jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long Waterproof Parka This is one of my many Columbia pieces that I currently enjoy wearing in Mountains of CO throughout al times of the year. With that being said this coat is completely waterproof which is really nice as a top layer, the coat runs large and has plenty of room to layer extra warmth. The coat does well by itself with just a medium thermal and undershirt in 25degree weather. However anything colder and you reall can feel the chill in the shoulders due to the area that the down is spread throughout. All in all this is a fantastic jacket that would do well in subzero temps with any other Omni heat jacket as medium layer.
