Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Jacket for my nephew I bought this jacket for my 15 year old nephew and he is very pleased with the quality, fit and color. He was surprised to find the wind proof sleeve. Teens can be very selective when it comes to clothing, however this jacket hit a home run! Thanks for the great quality, A happy Aunt

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jacket The only thing I saw that was "missing" was the bottom edge was straight, not elastic for a snugger fit. I got it for my husband, was going to wait until his birthday in September, but with our ice/snow days I gave it to him this past week. He loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Shimmer Me III is Great Received my Shimmer Me III jacket as a replacement for the original fleece Interchange Liner in my Bugaboo coat. It is light, warm, well fitting and really enjoy the Omni-Heat interior. My arms slip into the sleeves very smoothly, which is a treat and you hardly realize you are wearing it. The Bugaboo, which I love, becomes even more versatile. Of course you can wear the Shimmer Me III liner as an independent, light weight, but warm jacket. This is a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Puffy I Ever Owned Even the Polar Vortex was no match for this under my shell (Jet Stratus), even on the coldest and windiest days. It's a keeper, I'll get another next year if I can't find one at an outlet before then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Merry Christmas! I purchased this jacket for my 13yr son, huge success! He rarely takes it off, looks good on him and will be great for the Northwest's camping/hiking weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Really like this jacket. It is warm without the bulk and looks good on. Works well on it"s own in fairly cold weather and works well under a shell in really cold weather as in Columbia's interchange system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There is no other option once you try it I owned a full winter coat from Columbia (inner and outer layer). Somehow I managed to lose the inner layer, but with the outer layer remained I purchased just this inner layer again. IT'S BACK TO THE GOOD LIFE. Winter turns to Summer the moment that jacket hits my skin. My ONLY complaint is that it's really shiny. I tend to keep it zipped and secret. I don't want to resemble a disco ball.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Daily runner. Awesome jacket, warm and comfortable. I like it so much I bought a second one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT WORTH THE MONEY. DOESN'T SOLVE THE PURPOSE. This is merely a fleece. I was looking for a single layered jacket with THICK INSULATION to suit the New England winter. But this is just a total waste of the money we pay. I'd rather wear a normal branded fleece than pay this amount for a fleece that just has a fancy name and build that doesn't suit even the florida winters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light As A Feather Don't let the light weight of this jacket fool you. Although temps in the northeast are not cold yet, I wore this jacket when it was in the low 20s at night, and it was certainly warm and toasty. I also like the fact the jacket does not restrict movement in any way like some of the heavier jackets I have worn in the past. 5 stars on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked the wife's so much I got my own. This is a surprisingly warm jacket for how thin it is. I have a huge poofy one that is no warmer, but makes me look like a navy blue version of the staypuff marshmallow man. This one is much sleeker and looks way better on. Columbia's customer service was awesome with the exchange I had to make for a smaller size (my ordering error, not theirs.) This is my go-to jacket on the coldest day of the year when I take the dog out for as long a walk as he can tolerate.
