Rated 5 out of 5 by Mojojojojojo from Great Winter Jacket Great jacket overall. Very warm. With that being said, don’t wear it unless it’s very cold out. Just got back from skiiing and it held up great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyL from Good wind and rain protection I've used this jacket from 50 F down to 3 F so far. At colder temps (< 20), a Columbia vest or long sleeve fleece makes a great combination. Impressed with the wind blocking capability. I can walk from a warm building into the cold and not feel the chill at all. Plus with the water resistance and hood, no need to keep check on the weather. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FW22 from Great coat, but runs large. This is an excellent jacket. Warm enough for Midwest winters, but it is a little larger than I had hoped. I have many other Columbia jackets and I wear XL in all of them, but this seems more like an XXL. I would have returned for a smaller size, but already took the tags off. Gave 4 out of 5 stars due to sizing issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin14 from Great jacket I purchased this jacket not knowing how it would fit or how the material was, and like many of other consumers stated it runs large but it's ok all depends on how you like your jackets fitted. I ordered a small based off of what other people said and it fits just right not to baggy or long or short. I'm also 6 feet tall and 177 lbs and like I said a small is just right so keep that in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OregonEasy from An excellent rain / cold weather jacket I purchased this jacket more than a month ago and I am very pleased with it, On cold days I wear it with a light fleece interior jacket and it is perfect! I have now been in a few light and heavy rainfalls wear the jacket and it does a great job of shedding rain. The two large side pockets hold both my gloves and a stocking cap with room to spare. The fleece lining is perfect - not too warm and definitely not cold. I have received several positive comments about the jacket and am happy to provide this very positive review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cloverboy from For my son Bought this jacket for my teenage son. He's pretty picky about what he wears being a teenager. He loves this jacket and the way it looks. He says its very warm and fits great. So glad since we looked everywhere for a jacket he liked and this one fits the bill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texasroughboysmom from Texas Teen loves it My 6', 150# son asked for this coat after his lighter weight one (also Columbia and has help up 2 seasons of tennis) was not enough for 32 degree mornings. So far he is loving it -2 weeks. We bought a M adult so he could wear a hoodie under and have it still fit- it does! He loves that it keeps him warm on chilly mornings and we expect it will be his coat to take to IL for Christmas sledding with the family. He also likes the detachable hood, just hope he doesn't loose it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael64 from Warm enough for Michigan I just received this and Michigan is just ramping up for winter weather. So far it has been more than warm for late Fall and based on that I feel it will stack up nicely to the coming snow. The jacket has a nice soft feel to it as it is water resistant and not waterproof, which in a way I wish it was. The sleeve length is good on it but it is just a tad small across the torso from other XL size jackets I've had. Overall I'm very happy with the jacket and look forward to many years of wear!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kachylou from Great coat Great coat, thick and warm. Bought for my husband who is a solid XL and the coat was huge on him. It was so big I could have fit myself inside and still had room. Otherwise, a very nice coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nophah from The ONE I've been looking for So often I find a "large" jacket that is snug in every way. Or snug in just one or two ways. This large jacket actually fits like a large jacket should! Not loose, but comfortable. It feels like wearing a favorite blanket, has enough pockets, provides waterproof convenience with the comfort of a fleece jacket. I only wish all Columbia garments fit me this well in the large size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarBar from Great Jacket for Cold Weather I haven't really been able to test this jacket out in cold temperatures but It's fleece lined and insulated so it should be nice and warm. It's not waterproof but is labeled "water resistant." It is an attractive jacket. Not too bulky. I ordered the XL because it was reviewed as being "oversized" and fits me well with room for layers underneath. Just a nice all-around jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPGR from Great Jacket - slightly too big This jacket was awesome it was just slightly too big so make sure to read the sizing chart before ordering to make sure you have the correct size, I exchanged mine for a size down because the first one was slightly too big but it was great otherwise

Rated 4 out of 5 by Uteopia from Great jacket, can't wait to use Ordered a medium as that is what I normally wear. Fit like a large. It was huge. Really nice thick jacket that feels solid and well made like all of Columbia's softshell jackets. Ordering a small now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MadisonC from Great jacket Got this for my husband for our upcoming ski trip to Canada and so far so good. Haven't gotten to really put it to the test yet because we live in Florida, but the quality is great. The fit is nice and roomy enough to add a sweater/fleece layer under if desired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mDash from Nice Coat for New York Winters I bought this to replace a heavier, bulkier winter coat that I had. Nicely provides warmth and protection from wind and rain, but without a lot of bulk or heaviness. I like the understated solid navy blue color, without flashy color combinations. Just a minor quibble: it doesn't have any inside pockets, which I would have liked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gserafin from Almost Perfect This jacket is made with very nice materials, which is what you can expect from Columbia products. Do not expect to use this jacket as a sole winter jacket for those living in northern states, such as WI. On a particularly cold day, I pair this with a hoodie underneath and am usually warm enough. However, if worn alone as the sole source of warmth, the cold air can really be felt through the arms, as there is less padding there. Of course, less padding throughout means a lighter jacket- which is nice. Overall, this is a great jacket to pair with either a long sleeve shirt or a sweatshirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aresab from Excellent warm, comfy jacket I received my jackets and they fit great, I would say XL is perfect for my 6.0' 225 build. Very comfortable and have been very warm down to the 20's (lowest since I bought them). I bought 3, 1 of each color and all are very nice. I'd buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lefty32 from Very versatile winter wear I bought this jacket to replace an expensive, premier label insulated golf jacket-not to play golf in but to wear as I commute to Seattle and walk the streets therein during our cold, wet winters. This fills the bill completely. It is warm, water repellent and conveys the business casual look I need entering a meeting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Thick! Excellent for Cold! It's nice and thick for the cold but also great for rain. Has nice pockets and looks sleek. Really fashionable. It is not intended to be used in sub-zero temperatures so do not expect that out of this product, but it is great for anything between 20degrees to 50degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoCats84 from Great Jacket My father loves this jacket I got for him. He wanted a little heavier jacket, but not a big coat and this is perfect for him. It keeps the warmth in without needing a big, bulky coat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bubski from Like the hood This coat has the right amount of insulation but still manages to be light weight. During the dead of winter here in the Midwest, on occasion, you may need an additional inner layer. Not a problem with this coat as its cut provides a little extra interior room for that sweater. There is a cinch cord midriff to pull in the edges to keep the cold out. You have to look to find hooded coats these days. When the temp drops and the wind is raw, nothing beats covering your head and neck with this hooded coat. The zipper pulls the collar up to shield your neck and chin, very nice. The hood is removable with several buttons if you prefer. I got the lighter gravel color. When you brush up against your salt covered vehicle to reach that last bit of snow or ice, it does not show a stain like the darker colors may. As a plus, its a Columbia product. Their customer service is second to none

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveOH from Perfect balance I was looking for a versatile coat to wear during the occasional times I go snowboarding. It was the right price, for a durable coat that wasn't too heavy nor too thin AND provided flexibility. I have wore it a few times already in the snow and rain and it not only kept the rain/ dampness away, it kept me warm. It fit true to size XL, I normally wear a Carhartt XL winter coat at all times, this thoroughly impressed me with the warmth captured without the heaviness of a duck-canvas coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mcco from Gate Racer Very warm, perfect for skiing. The hood fits well over a ski helmet. The color and style is classy enough to wear to work.
