Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent jacket Purchased to replace another Columbia jacket. Had to return the first purchase due to size issue (too small). Cust service was very good and I received my replacement jacket in 2 days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good winter coat I bought this coat a few weeks ago to replace an 8 to 10 year old Columbia Titanium coat with a busted zipper. It is nice and warm once you zip up the liner jacket separately (I am in northern Minnesota). The only thing that I don't like is that the main coat zipper is not a two way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second Columbia coat I just bought my second Columbia coat. The first lasteust because.d years and still wears well. It is time to retire it and possibly drop it off at Goodwill or AmVets so another person can enjoy a warm coat. I might even order another j

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polar Vortex Hits NE US - Columbia Whirlibird III Jacket to the Rescue!!! I bought the Jacket in Early December of 2013. Temperatures in the NE US have be fluctuating like crazy this winter. The Temps last week hit the single digits in my area, with windchill temps in the negatives. Last Tuesday, it was 1 Degree Fahrenheit in my area! That is cold for the Washington DC area, but the Omni Heat lining took care of retaining my warmth, and the outer shell deflected the cold temps of the wind. I felt very warm with this jacket. Yesterday, the temps climbed to about 55 degrees, and it was heavily raining all. I unzipped the lining from the outer shell, attached the removable hood, and I had a comfortable rain jacket! My only two issues with the jacket which are minor, is the lining on my right sleeve always pokes out when I insert my arm. It is easily corrected but just annoying to fix. Also, this is probably only an issue with the Graphite-white jacket, but the white portions of the jacket get dirty easily if your not careful. Yes, it is stupid but something to consider before making your purchase. I'm glad I bough the jacket this winter! stylish, versatile, and most importantly warm! I most certainly got my moneys worth!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sizing Runs Small, But Great Jacket! I'm glad I read other reviews and took them seriously regarding the size. I normally wear a 3XL shirt. I bought this jacket in size 4XL and it fits perfectly! had I ordered a 3Xl, I'm sure it would have been too small. The jacket itself is great. Used it for a week of snowmobiling in Colorado and was never cold, never wet, nor did snow work it's way inside. Excellent!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket This is a very nice jacket but make sure to order one size larger because as others have said, it run small I luckily read the reviews prior to purchasing so did order one size larger and it worked out great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I live in the Chicago-Metro Area and it was very cold outside, yet the Jacket kept me warm. This was a GREAT Christmas present that I will enjoy for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlibird Bird III jacket Very lightweight but very warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Men’s Whirlibird™ III Is Another Columbia Hit I went from the Double Whammy, to the Men’s Whirlibird™ III. I wasn't disappointed. It has all of Columbia's features at a decent price for the quality. I have a 42" waist, but I ordered the 3XL to give me a bit more waist room for zipping it up. I can wear a 2XL, but zipping it at the waist can be troublesome. The Whirlibird runs a bit small. The Omni-Heat thermal reflective material definitely does the trick. Perhaps too well, as shopping inside a store for more than about 10 minutes causes me to begin to sweat and overheat. But that just means the coat works. I can only think of two negatives that cause a one star reduction for my review. I do wish that Columbia would go back to snaps in place of Velcro. Velcro gives out way quicker than snaps ever did on my stuff. I also wish that Columbia would have kept the internal breast pocket on the left side as in their past coats. For some reason, they decided to move it to the right side. I think for right-handed folks, it makes more sense to keep it on the left side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Shell I already have a blue Whirlibird, wanted a red one. Ordered a 3X because the fit is slightly on the small side. This is a great jacket! Great quality, like the features! But... I do not like the liner. Love the shell. I have been very dissapointed in Columbia going away from the fleece liners in favor of the so called tight fitting, not flexible, china shiny fabric nilon jacket, which feels like putting on a plastic sheet jacket. The fleece liners were great, warm, soft, stretch, comfortable, an were nice to wear without the shell. That is my only down side with this jacket and the rest of Columbia clothing line. So, Great Shell poor liner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design Flaw I am a big fan of Columbia products,I own an array of winter hats coats and gloves. That is why I was so disappointed when I just recently purchased their latest line of winter jackets called the Whirlybird II. Although it is stylish and functional as advertised, there is just one problem with this particular model,"durability". The outer shell material frays very easily when it comes in contact with the Velcro on the jacket. My whole right sleeve looks like I had the product for years, when in fact I just had it two weeks. If this problem was corrected this would be an awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive....But..... Anything of any quality is worth paying more for. Columbia Sportswear has been on my family's clothing shopping destination for decades. You just can't beat their quality. As for this coat, I live in the Northwest where we just went through the coldest weather we've had in about 25 years. This coat saw me through the coldest temps in a very comfortable manner. And, it's much lighter in weight than previous coats that I have worn that weren't nearly as warm or comfortable as this CS jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Winter Coat Had to return it for a bigger size, also the lining hangs longer than the coat. When I get the coat and actually wear it out. I will let you know how I like it. I had to BUY another coat they do not let exchange for a different size - ridiculous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Coat I purchased this jacket as a present. This coat is great for the erratic Chicago weather. The outer shell is sturdy and the inner shell is light and stylish but still warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zippers Galore This jacket is very well designed for convenience. Pockets everywhere, zippered cooling vents underarms, the zipper that holds the liner in the shell also zips together when you remove the liner. With temperatures in the 30's, I've been wearing just the liner in complete comfort. With the way the shell seals you in, I'm sure it will keep me warm when the temperature drops and the snow gets here. I normally wear 3XL shirts and bought the 4X jacket online since I have an outlet store nearby in case I needed to return it. The liner fits great. With the shell attached, it's a little snug around the middle, but a 5X would have been too big. Besides, snug keep the cold out.
