Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three in one This is the first jacket that I had with Omni-Tech™ waterproof/breathable fully seam sealed Omni-Heat™ reflective lining. I am warmer and dryer now. It came for the coldest and snowiest time this year. Great snow blowing and using outdoors. Plus great looking. I have lots of compliments on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good 3 in 1 Jacket. Chest pocket is no fun. I have a couple Omni Heat Jackets, but I never had an Omni Tech one. I must say the fabric is great, 100% Waterproof and gives a little extra protection against wind when used in a 3 in 1 style. It is a good jacket overall, great for rain in cold weather. I do not like at all that you would have to undo the zipper of the internal jacket to reach the chest pocket, which is on the right side. I like them on my left side, to reach with my right hand as my other Columbia jackets. The hand pockets of the external jacket could be improved, the fleece is very thin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and flexible I bought this coat at the start of winter, we are currently experiencing temperatures in the teens Fahrenheit. I wear a very light sweat shirt underneath this coat and it is very warm. I love the way it fits, it is tight but flexible. I can move around and it doesn't feel like I'm wasting a bulky winter coat because that is not what this is. It's a slim coat that brings great warmth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aravis explorer interchange jacket This was a Christmas gift for my Grand Nephew. He will be attending the Winter Olympics in South Korea as a photographer. He researched different jackets and decided on this one. He is certain it will be beneficial in keeping him warm. Thank you for such a good price on an excellent jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE COLUMBIA !! My husband feel in love with this jacket the moment he saw it. The color green is perfect and all the pockets and functions it has makes it even more amazing. He was also impressed he could wear it for different temperatures! Another great product from columbia. They never disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful warm jacket I received my jacket on time and I could not be happier or more satisfied. I ordered the Forrest green color and it's beautiful. The jacket is well made and the XL size fits me perfectly. On the exterior it has smooth even stitching with an attractive finish to the fabric. The zippered pockets work flawlessly and have a comfy micro fleece type interior. What I like best is the high-tech thermal insert that zips out so you can adjust your jacket to fit the days weather. Overall Columbia has produced a superior product that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for high quality all weather jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable Used it in 30 degree weather with no problem! Stayed absolutely cozy. The sleeves are a little loose, but not a huge problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Great! I really like how the coat fits! Slim look but still has room in the pockets for whatever you need to store in the coat. Very light for a coat that provides such so much heat. I wear this coat in some of the coldest conditions in America and I have zero issues of staying warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket for the Price I got this for my teenage son who is notoriously picky. Not only did he like the fit and look, but it isn't too bulky and works well for skiing. Great bang for the buck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice all weather jacket This jacket isn't fancy but it does the job at keeping warm and dry. If you expect the logos to be monogrammed you would be disappointed, for they are printed on this jacket. Otherwise it's typical of the 3 in 1 series of jackets but a bit more plain. I would recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warranty Replacement I bought this Jacket because my last Columbia jacket zipper failed. It was under warranty, so I received a gift credit. Not Bad! This new jacket is warm, lightweight and stylish. Style is so important up here in the woods of Michigan's upper peninsula!! I've had this jacket for about three weeks and use it almost every day. It has a zip out liner if I want to use it on warmer days. Very versatile.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Coat/Jacket I like the coat, however it runs small and my major issue, IT HAS NO POCKETS ON THE INSIDE!!! IT ONLY HAS THE FRONT POCKETS TO PUT your hands in and they are kind of tight. I dont understand the lack of pockets, it should had at least one inside pocket, I bought this coat in the hopes to use it everyday to work, but I wont be able to do that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Winter jacket Light, seems warm. My only complaint is the pockets, or lack thereof. Outside pocket are small, things tend to fall out of them if not zipped and no inside pocket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product This was a gift I got for my boyfriend to go to Iceland with in January. It fits very true to size but tends to be in the bulkier side compare to other 3 in 1 products. He tells me it's a little stiff to move around in but as for warmth, he seems to be comfortable in 20 degree f weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Combo I am already enjoying this jacket! I will wear the inner layer around town and put the outer layer all together when I want to go out and adventure. Highly recommend this jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING This, no no, THIS has been THE best jacket I've owned. My last jacket was a Marker ski jacket ($300+), and this Columbia is leaps & bounds better. So much warmer, AND I have 3 jackets in one! The reflecting Omni-heat is very warm, coldest test so far is -2° and was wonderful! I'm seriously considering buying a second one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and functional Very warm jacket. The technology is superior to any other I have had. Warm and dry inside and out. Nice you can remove lining and hood if needed. Room to layer underneath if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where I look first! There are fewer than a handful of places I look when searching for a specific article of clothing. Keeping in mind the purpose of the item, Columbia is usually the first! Over 30 years of purchases, my satisfaction with the quality, durability, features, and consistant value of Columbia products has never led me astray. This jacket is a case in point. I recently moved from South Central Pensylvania to the Poconos. (Less than 150 miles, but what a difference in weather!) I now live on top of a mountain! I needed a much warmer coat for my daily hikes through the woods! This jacket fills the bill! 'nuff said! And it was on sale, too! (Plus 20% off!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmth for those cold days I bought this jacket for myself since I have an Oregon trip coming up. I wanted to make sure I was warm. The inside layer definitely keeps you warm with the omni-heat technology it's pretty cool I must say. I live in Los Angeles so I've been able to wear both layers separate according to the temperature. Thanks Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm but a tight fit I bought this jacket recently for warmth and dryness in the Fall/Winter and in that regard it works great. It's well made and very warm. However, the waist to chest fit is VERY tight. I wear a medium jacket and have a 32" waist and this jacket is very tight on me. Snug is not the word but "tight" definitely is. Without a doubt, its a great jacket but you better be very thin to wear it.
Date published: 2017-12-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatility and warmth This jacket cuts the wind and keeps the heat inside all while being very lightweight. The lowest temperature I've used it in is 15 degrees but all I had on underneath was a light short-sleeved tee shirt and I was very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unfortunately returned It is an extremely well made jacket. I lost a lot of weight recently. I usually wear XL. This was L size. In my opinion, it is made for slim people. There was a 2 inch gap to close the zipper. Wish Colombia would specify this fact in the pictures and specification. I have to return it back to Colombia. Majority of large companies agree to ship and return free of charge. But in my case I will end up loosing about $8.00 for a non fitting jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So warm, so versatile Love the 3-in-1 functionality of this product, you can wear this jacket anywhere from the fall (inner layer only) to dead of a cold winter night (both layers together). Highly, highly recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally worth it I have not tested in very low temperatures but works really well in 17F and can be detached from in rain or can be configured to meet your needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmer than expected good thing it’s a three in one, because both together often too warm. At least so far, it hasn’t got below 30 yet this year. Haven’t had a chance to test the waterproofing yet, but nice and toasty and comfy.
Date published: 2017-12-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I’m done with single zippered jackets This coat was awesome in every regard except for what has become a deal breaker for me. I’m no longer going to be buying jackets without the double zipper. There is just too much stress being placed on the lowest end of the zipper where it is sewn into the jacket. Every time I bend over or sit down I’m reminded that the bottom of the zipper is at peril.
