Men’s Bugaboo™ 1986 Interchange Jacket is rated out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeM227 from Warm and Comfortable Jacket Overall this is a warm and well constructed winter jacket. It sits just below the waist, which other reviewers have noted and which I like. The liner and shell are fairly simple to separate, and there are loops in the sleeves and a Velcro patch in the collar to keep everything lined up. Velcro is also used in the storm flap and sleeves. My only concern is how well the Velcro will hold up and/or collect lint over time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JC28 from Good jacket, weird fit This is a quality jacket that's nice-looking and well-made. However, it didn't work out for me due to the fit--ample chest room but tight in the waist area. Also, both the collar and sleeves are big. Ended up returning mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tana06 from Men’s Bugaboo 1986 Interchange Jacket Extremely warm jacket. Great for the cold Winter months in the area where I live. Helpful that the lining can be worn separately also. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, the overall jacket size fits very well, but the bottom half is just a bit snug in the waist area. Other than that, the jacket fits wonderfully. I always buy Columbia coats when I can, great quality indeed! Thank you Columbia for the warm jacket (red-n-black) that will last me for many years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EastCoastColumbiaFan from Return of an old friend Showing my age, but I had one of the original 1986 Bugaboos in 1986, Gray outer with the iconic blue buffalo plaid fleece liner. Wore it for years, including harsh West Virginia mountain winters, including multiple attempts at skiing on the ice/man-made snow that sometimes passes for snow there, until father time increased my waistline until it couldn't fit. Try as I might, could not find a suitable replacement, including multiple tries from the usual known suspects . Stumbled onto the 2018 version of the 1986 Icon, and it was worth the wait (Peatmoss). The fleece lining is incredibly warm, alone or with the outer shell and looks awesome by itself. Combine with the shell, it is warm and impervious to the wind and rain. Love the high collar (a Columbia exclusive it seems: I have an Ascender soft shell jacket with the same feature that is a must in winter golf season in southeast Virginia) that keeps your neck warm in the wind. I don't recall two internal zippered shell pockets on the original, but they are priceless, hold both your cell phone in one and car keys/reader glasses in the other, a feature I have not found on any competitor jacket. Sizing is spot on ( I usually wear a medium Columbia fleece jacket and vest for comfortable fit: I ordered both a large and medium, with the large giving me some extra wiggle room that I like, the medium was a bit tight, gave it to my son, both were on sale and too good to pass up at the price.) I have a long commute to work and the jacket keeps me warm during the ride but doesn't fry me in the car. Pop on the shell upon arrival and I am set to go. Love the 1986 Bugaboo. My only regret is that they didn't have the iconic blue buffalo plaid fleece liner.....

Rated 2 out of 5 by Retired74 from Not like my old one My old jacket was bought in the 1980's and I still have it. The Velcro on the sleeves stop working and one zipper on the pockets so I bought a new one. The old had a nylon jacket insert. The new one is hard to get on because the cloth insert bungees up and my hand can't get thru to the end of the sleeve. Instead of snaps to close over the zipper there is Velcro. This makes a lot of noise if you need to open the coat in church or the movies. Once the jacket is on - it is a warm jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodd from Awesome Jacket! Thank you for bringing this jacket back! I refused to buy one of those puffer jackets as they are quite ridiculous looking and therefor I have been wearing the same winter jacket since 2004. In fact, I started wearing my old Columbia Criterion jacket that I got back in the late 90's. When I saw that Columbia had brought this back, I had to have it. I bought the black one. I am ordering the blue one today also...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Scottiebro 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 goodgriefdegreef 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 TimTim 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 Lollipop 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 MurrietaRob 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 Kaleb 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 Angelodimorte 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 4 out of 5 by Zillo 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 5 out of 5 by DruZ 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.
