Men’s Bugaboo™ 1986 Interchange Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect hybrid jacket I purchased this as a replacement for a warm-up jacket I had from LL Bean. It actually ending up replacing my warm up and my existing fleece. It's perfect for rain (without the fleece liner) and for colder temps with the liner zipped in. The fleece liner is heavy enough for travel as a comfortable car coat. The colors were limited but the rust/navy combo is very attractive (my wife says so). Columbia offers so many products that it is hard to shop anywhere else. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from could be improved Just went skiing in it under January-like weather. The bottom of the sleeves should be larger to more readily fit over cold-weather gloves/mitts. I miss the left upper-arm pocket of my other Columbia ski jacket where my flip-phone fitted perfectly. Could use another 6 to 8 inches in height to keep wind off my lower back. (Have been skiing for 60 years in New England and Quebec. Am still at an advanced level but now stay out of the bumps and woods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bugaboo jacket Over the years I have always wanted to purchase this jacket. I have other Columbia jackets and all of them are excellent. But I have to admit. At this time my new Bugaboo jacket has become my new favorite. The comfort level is exceptional. It’s not to bulky or heavy. I love the pocket in the front at the main zipper. It’s big enough to allow me to put my phone in. I will be getting another one soon because I like some of the other colors as well. Thank you Columbia for bringing back this style of jacket. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive jacket I purchased this jacke for my husband in an XL. Previous Columbia jacket was a L so this one runs small. The construction if strong, the color and style are very nice. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve this jacket I really enjoyed the fit and comfort of the jacket. The texture the waterproof features all the extra amenities really prove to be helpful. Only one small issue was with the Velcro on the cuffs sticking to the Velcro on the front jacket a small price to pay for this wonderful and very detailed outdoor jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and stylish men’s Bugaboo jacket My husband loves his new Bugaboo jacket featuring a zip out lining. The colors are classic, and he has worn this brand most of his life. The price is reasonable because we purchased it on sale! The quality is superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect If you are looking for a classic wind and weather proof shell, combined with a inner fleece layer system that keeps you warm look no further than the Bugaboo. The high collar, elastic waist, and sleeve adjusters help keep the wind out and warmth in. This is not intended to be used in extreme weather conditions; I have specific storm gear for those times, but this jacket system is Perfect for a·près-ski outings, or when you want a great looking, retro shell and fleece liner system for everyday weather and wind protection. In a word, Perfect. This jacket is EXACTLY what I needed amd wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and quality. Bought this coat for working out doors for multiple hours at a time. Live in ohio so it gets pretty cold. Jacket is extremely warm and the zip in fleece is a big plus. The jacket does sit higher up on waist then what I imagined but is elastic so it keeps you warm. The only compliant I have is the velcro to seal the front zipper. It is terribly loud when taking the coat off. Especially when in a room of people, i.e. a classroom. But its warm so who cares. Overall great product and highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings back memories Wow !! I owned an original 1986 bugaboo as of last week, Red with blue teal trim. As with my original, the quality has not missed a beat in over 30 years. Only reason I needed a new one, is that I grew lol. By the time I own this one the same number of years as my previous one, I will be dead and buried. My old bugaboo was perfect, so I donated it to a needy family. I hope the new owners will enjoy it as much as I did

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jacket ever I was a little nervous about the sizing but it turned out to be a great fit. This jacket is perfect for the cold weather in NY. I like that this jacket is a 3 in 1 jacket

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good customer service and product! My review is based on my first impressions and about two weeks of use. The coat appears to be well constructed and of good quality. Owning and using Columbia products in the past I have no reason to believe my first impressions are wrong and feel the coat will last and function as described. As some reviews have mentioned the collar is a bit tall and sleeve length just a bit long in the size I ordered. This seems to not effect the function of the coat and the taller collar although a little bulky offers added protection and warmth. This coat is definitely a colder weather garment but the ability to take out the liner offers versatility. Customer service could not be better! Great communication and support through out the selection and buying process. For their quality and service I would recommend Columbia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Best jacket ever owned I received the original Bugaboo as a Christmas gift 30 years ago!!! That jacket lasted me 20 years!!! I only got rid of it because the fleece around the sleeves started fraying (donated it to a homeless shelter). Twenty years, 3 states and six cities later, all I can say is it was the best coat ever!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Jacket This jacket is just okay. The styling is attractive but execution of the design is lacking. Unless you are a giraffe the high collar is bothersome. The jacket runs small so purchasers should be prepared to consider sizing up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got this jacket in 1989 and still have it!! I have the blue one. I bought it my freshman year of college and still have it!! So temped to buy another one..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gift I love the Bugaboo jacket. I got my first one in 2007 and it sold me in the Columbia brand. I have since owned many variations. My wife got me the black as a birthday gift, and it's really great. The red zipper accents on the fleec are fantastic! The jacket is very warm! I wore it on a hike in 17 degree weather through Appalachia and remained warm throughout my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally made a good jacket The heavy layered design gives solid protection from harsh elements entering in from the waist to the neck; with a very durable feel to it. It reminds me of the coats I wore growing up in the Oregon mountains. Much better than the Michelin man looking design Columbia has gone with for way too long. Those wimpy high priced Michelin man coats lack solid protection, get tore up easily, and are ugly on top of it. This Bugaboo is solid, built for the outdoors, and looks good. My only recommendation is that a hood add on would be great, and a necessity for some people depending on where they live.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!! I've been waiting for Columbia to release the original "Bugaboo" for a long time! Had one in high school (white, neon green,) and wore it for years after! This couldn't be any more like the original! This fits true to size (I'm 6'3") and an XL fits me perfectly. Very warm coat, very sharp looking! I would also love to see a release of the original "Whirlibird" the one with the high collar and down filled zip in liner! 2 very classic jackets that don't get enough credit! Great Job Columbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like It !!! Just what I was looking for. Color,style,has pockets, shorter length, no hood and 3 point interchange system. I ordered the Blue Macaw color came in same as shown. I'm 6' 240 XL size runs a little small compared to my 4 other Columbia Jackets. Not undersized enough to get a larger size. I hope this review helps with your decision.
