Men's Go To™ Hooded Jacket is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for Autumn I bought this jacket for my father and he said that while the Omni-Shield kept him warm, he would still need an extra layer underneath during colder months. He described this as the perfect jacket for autumn where the days are cooler, but not frigid.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Warm jacket - if the zipper worked I bought two of these jackets; one for both of my teenage boys. The jackets looked sharp and were very warm. I bought one in red and one in black, both adult smalls. Unfortunately the zipper on BOTH jackets started to malfunction right away. The zipper on the black one completely broke off just a couple of months in. We've had wonderful experiences with Columbia coats in the past - handing them down through two boys and cousins without any wear or tear - so this was a big surprise and disappointment. We went with a different brand for this coming winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit bulky and not as nice as the Voodoo Falls jacket. I was looking for a hooded Omni-Heat jacket to have an option at foregoing a hat. I had been looking to buy the Go-To Hooded jacket for a while now but it was always sold out by the time I would get to it. I finally caught it during Black Friday but ended up returning it shortly after. Although this is a fairly nice, if average, Columbia jacket, I was really disappointed in what they consider "Comfort Cuffs". All of my other Columbia jackets (at least 12 of them) have either the elastic or velcro cuffs. I incorrectly assumed that the "Comfort Cuffs" would be comfortable. First, instead of being of a substantial fabric, they are no more than a very thin stretchy material. Second, they do absolutely nothing in keeping the end of the sleeve above the hand. The cuff fits at the wrist and pretty much stays there, but the body of the sleeve just doubles-over the cuff, covering the hands but not in a helpful way. I also purchased this in the "New Cinder" color. Columbia really needs to improve the color of their online product images, because "New Cinder" is really just an ugly brown color. I like brown- but this color is not nice. In the end, I returned the Go-To jacket and instead purchased the Voodoo Falls hooded jacket, which fits great, has regular elastic duffs and comes in nice colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Quality Unfortunately, the workmanship is very very bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Jacket Overall This is a good jacket overall. I tested it in 20-30 degree weather to see if it would keep me warm and it did. I like the detail in fleece lining the pockets. My only knock is the hood could fit better. This is a problem on a Columbia brand rain jacket I have as well. No matter how you use the adjusts, it seems that the hood always likes to drape over your forehead, interfering with your vision some.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jacket felt too thin, had to return The jacket has the omni heat tech. Cannot be used with out layering on cold days and sub 0 temperatures. Was looking for something light and warm, had to turn to turbodown. Ended up paying return shipping of 12.00$.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Husband Fave My husband looooves this jacket. It's not as warm as I thought it would be, but it's great quality and value. He is on the large side of medium, and ordering the medium was a solid decision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter coat for someone who runs hot! I bought this for my boyfriend and he appreciates how light weight the jacket is, but still warm with the Omniheat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Below zero - No problem I have always been a great fan of Columbia clothing and outerwear but it is my first time using a jacket for cold winter. I was delighted with the high quality and technology of MEN'S GO TO™ HOODED JACKET since I unwrapped it. Great fabric, perfect construction, lightweight and very warm. I left my heavy wool coat at the hotel and went for a day long walk in a freezing Washington, to take pictures, tour the city and I my Columbia jacket felt great. I highly recommend this jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ca hiker I live in southern California and in the winter it can be in the high 30s and low 40s in the morning so it’s great having a warm jacket to start off a hike that is lightweight, doesn’t restrict my movement and is easily stuffed into a day pack when the temperature raises. Also I will be taking this jacket with me when I go backpacking in the Sierras this summer to stay warm on those chilly nights. I’m 6’1” and 215 lbs. The fit is pretty good but don’t expect to use a lot of layers. It could get a little snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! 10 out of 10, would buy again! This is my go to jacket for everything. Most of the time it is the only jacket I need. It is worth the buy, expecially while it is on sale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jacket much larger than expected Also, the jacket is a lot thinner than anticipated. Worried it will not be warm enough for below freezing temperatures. Wish there was a way to specify temperature ranges for each jacket. The main concern is that my husband who usually wears Mediums, this jacket is way too large as a medium. Now I have to go to the hassle to exchange before Christmas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Depends on what you need it for I ordered this coat Black Friday for my teenage son. It was thinner than I expected, although it has omni heat I feel like I would need to buy an additional something for him to wear under it. Long time Columbia customer but not what I was expecting. This is more of a Fall jacket in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Go to Jacket This jacket is light weight and fits me so good. Material is very good and too bad some others complained about the faulty zipper. I wish there are more colors, but honestly who cares about the color when the quality is so good :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality zipper I am truly disappointed for purchasing this from Columbia expecting it would be a quality stuff. Every single time I try to zip it , it's layer is stuck within the zipper and I have to leave it unzipped or wear something else. Utter disappointment
