Men's Northern Comfort™ Insulated Hoody Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket It was a present for my boyfriend and it was a bit large. But the quality is so good we loved this jacket. I hardly recommend this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, could be a bit more tailored I bought this product in size M though I would normally go with L. The jacket is pretty long and fits a tall person (I am 6'5"), sleeves could be a bit longer and overall the jacket a bit more tailored. Give it 4 stars for the value :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I bought this jacket as a basic layer for a roadtrip across canada. It has been super comfortable and never been too warm or too hot, i really liked it. Downside is that it is a bit latger than ibexpected and the fabric part is a bit of a grease magnet :/ (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Casual and Physical Excellence I wear the down hoodie for physical excursions outside to keep warm and in casual business settings for warmth and comfort. I would recommend this hoodie for anyone who needs a guaranteed source of warmth and comfort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light jacket I wear this jacket while playing golf on cool days. It allows me to move freely when swinging a club and looks great when I’m at the 19th hole. A very nice addition to my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light and warm I bought this jacket thinking I would use it for spring and fall; however, when I got it, I found it to be pleasantly warm. I could wear a fleece with this jacket over it and feel very comfortable on good weather winter days. I would recommend this product. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect marriage of hoody and a jacket! I am so impressed with what Columbia has done over the past couple years! This is the perfect lightweight jacket, heavy sweatshirt! I have received a ton of compliments wearing this, the style and the functionality are on point. A down lined hoody, who needs that? Everyone! If you are anywhere near the fence on sizing, go down. I initially got a large because all my hoodies, sweaters etc are large but I got this in a medium. Fits more like a jacket than a sweatshirt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Northern Comfort Hoody Jacket Review Wow, Another hit with my son! I ordered this Hoddy jacket for my son. He received it today 10/11/17, he Loves it! I could hear the excitement in his voice. He was like "MOM I Love IT, Thanks mom, what other colors they got? lol. Thank you "Columbia" for another great item!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great material and the color is great The best part of this hoody jacket is by far the color ruby rust! It goes well with everything and I’ve been asked many times where I’ve bought the jacket . Have gotten many compliments. The quality is also very well and it doesn’t look cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT! Bought this for my hubby as a gift. He is 6'1" and about 250lbs. The XXL fits great! Plenty long enough and enough room to wear long sleeves under. It did take a while for the fold lines from shipping to work themselves out so it looked boxy the first time wearing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No neck protection It's a very good budget jacket, only downside is neck protection, wind comes down the jacket through the collar area. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not true to size ! I ordered a medium size and it was too large for me. When I want to return and exchange for a smaller size I have to pay for shipping. This is the only company that charges shipping for exchange. Also, the picture doesn't justify the product. The sleeves and the hoody is made of really poor sweat fabric. Not very impressed with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable hoodie It's a comfortable hoodie. I like the style of it with the down vest look. This hoodie does keep me nice and warm. The only thing I wish it had was some sort of chest pocket, either external or internal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous spring/fall hoodie! Love this hoodie - it is nice and light, yet should be warm for those chilly spring and fall days. I am also going to wear it under my winter coat for added warmth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and comfirtable Great buy, especially on sale. Very warm and nice colorways

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KEEPS YOUR CORE WARM!!! I got this as a gift and love it! In the Portland weather it is perfect. I can throw a heavier coat or a rain coat over it and it doesn't feel bulky. Definitely a little pricey for a hoodie BUT it is a nice thick down. I am going to get a black one too!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low Quality I love this product, but I was disappointed that they used cotton for the hood and sleeves, this means shorter lifespan due to fading. Polyester in replace of the cotton would've made this product perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Just what I was looking for, really good fit, warm and I really like the way it fits me.
