Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I’ve never owned a Columbia jacket. As a matter of fact, the last winter jacket I bought was over 20 years ago! It’s amazing how technology has changed. This jacket is light, comfortable and very warm. I like how you can use the liner as a light jacket by itself. I looked at all the top brands and this jacket was the best!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YES! Get this! Jacket for all seasons! My fiancé was making faces when I first suggested this jacket. He's never enjoyed a Columbia jacket before and thought this was too expensive. When he discovered that you can wear the outer shell as a rain coat, the inner coat as a spring/fall jacket, and both pieces together as a winter coat, he agreed to try it out. When he first tried on the coat, a smile came across his face, and he said, "yeah, I really like this"! He has worn the outer shell over a suit the other day and said it kept him completely dry in a downpour. It hasn't been cold enough yet to wear the complete coat, but living on the Hudson, I'm sure he'll have a chance to test it out soon. So far, so good - highly recommend, even for those men who "make faces" at spending a little more - they'll soon realize it's worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 3-1 Jacket This is a great 3-1 jacket. I ending up buying this one after comparing similar jackets across multiple brands. The jacket runs large so I am reordering in the right size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket For The Snow & Extremely Cold Upper Michigan Winter Weather Great jacket, good fit, comfortable. No complaints. recommend order g next size up- I ordered 1 size up so a sweater or thick shirt would comfortably fit underneath and also to have some room to move around comfortably, the sleeves were perfect length with the 1 size up too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On The Cutting Edge First to comment on size. People come in so many different sizes and shapes, it can be misleading to go strictly by reviews. That said, I first ordered a large but changed to X-large. I'm glad I did because this is just right as far as being a tad bit tight when I cross my arms. But that is MY build. It's a bit long in the sleeves but that the cuffs hold it off my hands. It is best to know your dimensions and compare them with what you are buying. I got this coat out of season so I have not used it yet. I can still comment on the quality, design, and function. Columbia guarantees their products for life. It is hard to find this commitment to quality these days. The design of this jacket fits my needs well. I like things that can fulfill more than just one need. This jacket can be modified to meet a wide range of temperatures, and weather conditions. That adds to the value of this purchase. It's like getting three different jackets. I like pockets since It gives me options for places to carry things Gloves, keys, phones etc.. this is one reason I chose this jacket. The inner jacket mates so well with the outer that together it feels like one. The silver reflective lining is really nice. It feels almost instantly at "body temp" as if it was just worn. It may be waterproof and well insulated, but stays comfortable because of its breathe-ability. If I was active I'm sure I'd use the under arm vents. They are secured with mesh so they are not big gaping holes.. just a place to breathe, and give perspiration a place to exit. The hood is large but also adjustable.. cinch down the elastic cords to close around your face and you can keep the top out of your eyes with the adjusting tab in the back. So you could layer your head cover in cold weather and adjust the hood to match. There is also a "visor' on the hood to keep water from dripping on your face / glasses. It's little options in the design that I like about Columbia's products. It is a product that built to perform its function well, not just look the part. Stress points are reinforced with more stitching. Little things like the main zipper has a pull tab modified with a durable extension so you can operate it with gloves.. Columbia has learned through the years what is needed to make the function meet real world needs not just fashion. On that note... I got the one ( darker) camo pattern. It is MUCH darker than the site photos.. and I'm glad because I worried it would look more plaid than camo. It is a nice mix. I think the photo may have turned off some people they way it looked on line. It's a very nice jacket and I'm very glad I got it. It will serve me well for many years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirl like a bird Perfect Product for outdoor in all seasons. Lightweight, Omni Heat technology, breathable, stylish. Its fantastic jacket, three in one. I was confused with so many jackets, but finally made decision with Whirlibird. On Time Delivery. I was happy to see the product and feels fantastic and stylish wearing it. Number of pockets to keep things in well in place. More than worth for money. #Columbia #TestedTough

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality all weather coat Very nice coat that is perfect for all types of weather. The outer layer when worn by itself fits a little large but that is to be expected as it is designed to be worn with the inner layer as well. I live in the southeast where between November and March you never know if it will be cold and windy, cold and wet, or warm and rainy. This coat has you covered for all of the above.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket does great things! I love the multi-use aspect of this jacket -- or should I say "these jackets." The zipper is a little small for the bulky coat and must be held together for several inches to operate. Nice and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket; can't wait until next winter. I bought this jacket as an end of winter clearance item in March. As such, I haven't experienced a cold snap to test the jacket's warmth potential. I can say that it's incredibly warm in the temperate springtime temperatures in Cincinnati, Ohio. The jacket's 2 pieces are of good quality and are much less bulky than my older Columbia 3-in-1 from the late 2000's. I really like the fabric used for the outer shell of my new black melange (sp?) jacket. Muted, yet modern. My older Columbia was a size medium, but I needed a size large in this jacket to achieve the same fit. The hip area was a couple of inches narrower in the new, size medium jacket, which hindered my comfort when sitting and crouching. I switched to a size large and all is well. My wish list for future Columbia jackets includes a zippered inner pocket for the outer shell, like my old Columbia jacket. I'd also be thrilled if the inner shell had a bit of elastic around the wrists, again, like my old Columbia. Over-all, I love the new jacket and can't wait to fully test it out next winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best jacket ever Recently bought this jacket and took it up to colorful Colorado. The temperature would fluctuate from high 20's in the early morning to mid 50's in the afternoon, and would dip back down to the 20's once the sun would tuck away behind he mountains for the night. This jacket was he only one I needed, and i felt dumb for packing the other 3 jackets I packed. The jacket fit true to size and I loved the waterproof outer coat in the snow. I had never spent so much on a jacket (and that's because I got it on sale) but it was worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket ! TV broadcasters wearing Columbia coats never seemed to be freezing while reporting the cold / storms so I bought one . It is, no doubt, one of the best coats ever purchased !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warranty Replacement I've owned a Columbia winter coat for 25 years. Recently, the zipper began to pull apart. Relying on the lifetime warranty, I sent it in for repair or replacement under the warranty, figuring Columbia would find some reason the warranty did not apply or merely replace the zipper. Instead I was able to pick out this wonderful replacement coat with the warranty credit! A wonderfully warm and useful coat with a zip out liner that can be used as a fall or spring jacket. Well made and very useful with lots of pockets! I strongly recommend this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cold weather and skiing This jacket kept me warm while skiing in 10 degree weather with just one UA base layer long sleeve on underneath. I started with a long sleeve and sweatshirt under this jacket but was sweating in under 20 degree weather because of how warm this jacket can be. You will only need one shirt on under this jacket to stay warm. Great quality, my expectations were exceeded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat I took this coat to Italy in the off season so I expected it to be cold and rainy the whole time. This coat kept me warm and dry the whole time. When it get too warm I loved the option of being able to take out the separate down jacket. On another note I ski a lot and this coat has been great for that as well. Highly recommend this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ski Coat My son and I have both been wearing this coat (I'm wearing the women's version) for skiing this year, and it's been great. We've stayed dry and warm all season, through every kind of weather. The fit is nice -- roomy enough to allow you to wear base layers and not feel constricted. Once ski season is over, we'll slip out the inside coat and wear it alone. Nice coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product!! This jacket is the best jacket I've ever owned! I love how it keeps you warm and how it's very stylish. Plus, it's affordable! Doesn't get better than that. (Actually, it does) Once you purchase it you'll know what I mean. I never thought I'd ever write a review for a product, but this jacket changed my mind. Simply amazing !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You really get 3 coats for the price of 1 I bought this coat for my son-in-law on the Columbia website after we were not successful in finding him one at the local Columbia outlet store. He really liked the 3-in-1 feature, but we couldn't find one in his size, XXL, in a color that he liked - green. This coat looked brown to me online, Peatmoss Buffalo Camo, but when I opened the box, I was very pleased to see that it was more green, and very similar to the one he liked in the store. He has already worn the inner-jacket by itself. What I liked most about it is that it wasn't bulky. I think he will get many years of use from this coat/these coats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whirlibird Parka Winter coat is wonderful. Color is great and the black just adds to the warmth. Absorbs the sunlight. I did have to get used to the liner and the area that rests on my shoulders. Seem I was feeling a cool sensation when I first wore it. Gone now though. Temperatures here so far range from 0 to 25F. Haven't had to wear an extra fleece liner. The price was reasonable too. Don't know if I would have paid $200.00 though

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic jacket This jacket is fantastic for cold to extremely cold conditions as well as snow, sleet, wind, and rain. I wear it for everyday use when going to class and also for skiing; it works great for both. Very warm but doesn't make you hot when it isn't as cold. Love the two piece design. My only wish is that it was easier to adjust the hood straps, but this really isn't anything big. Overall a great jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third Winter and still love it! Thanks Columbia for another quality product! This is my third year wearing this jacket in the cold Wisconsin winters! I work outdoors and wear this everyday and it has held up great! Warm, snow and windproof, and looks great! Alot of pocket space and zippers that never fail. The best exterior fabric of any jacket Ive ever owned. Light weight and comes out looking like new when washed. Keep making this great jacket, because this one will probably last 10 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I got this jacket to replace an old Columbia interchange jacket I have used for many years that was showing a lot of wear. This jacket is lighter than my previous one, but it is much warmer. I like that this jacket is longer in the back as well. Looks great, feels great, I'm warm in our sub-freezing temperatures this winter. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "multi-tool" jacket I bought my first Columbia Interchange jacket back in college. I just replaced it this snow season, almost 20 years later. These things are durable, warm, and will keep you dry. I have noticed a lot of major as well as incremental improvements: The new omni-heat really does work. This jacket is warmer than my previous one. The insulated liner looks great on its own, and they have significantly improved the ease with which you can separate/attach the two components. Zippers seal better and move freely. Venting works great. If you don't know what mother nature is going to throw at you, at least you will be ready with this jacket. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warmth for the weight Very lightweight and packs much smaller than its predecessor. I got a medium and it fits pretty close to the body (I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs, right on the border between S and M; S would have been tight). Sleeves are slightly long for me, but that is a minor issue. Tested it at 25 F with a wind and it was quite comfortable. Have not tested water repellency yet.
Date published: 2017-01-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that warm I have to say I've been disappointed in this coat so far, in that it's nowhere near as warm as the description and the reviews claim. The patented "Omni-Heat" material inside the inner layer is *supposed* to reflect all your body heat and keep you warm, but that's what any good thick coat does, and this doesn't actually do it. I walk outside and immediately start feeling cold seep right through, which didn't happen with my old bulky down coat. Sorry to say it, but the Omni-Heat material feels a little like a shiny silver gimmick.
Date published: 2017-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coat ever! Deliciously warm and cozy--even without the outer sheath, but when it's really cold (20 degrees or below), you will need both layers. I'm a 5'8" woman and found this coat in the Mens department (thanks to a great sales woman!) The "thermal reflective" technology is no joke. I started sweating within minutes after trying it on in the store. The hood is detachable and there are lots of inner and outer pockets. A LOT of thought went in to the overall design of this coat. My husband bought this coat as a birthday present for me. He paid around $200 for it. Frankly, it's so much warmer and practical than the mink coat he bought me on Valentine's Day several years ago. (But I would never tell him that!) The only criticism is the zipper on the inner liner. Hiccups when it runs up and down and seems a bit "cheap"--perhaps a zipper made in China? Other than that, a fantastic coat! Thanks, Columbia, for a great coat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I have this jacket and I absolutely love it. This jacket fully protect and block cold. The only one thing I absolutely don't like about this jacket is its Hood/cap. It's rough and uncomfortable (only there incase needed in rain) doesn't keep head warm. You need to wear a beanie in order to use jacket hood comfortably.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large sleeves The inner shell is superb, very warm and great fit. However, the outer shell is oversized as the sleeves are huge and billow significantly. The jacket is very warm but the fit needs improvement.
Date published: 2016-12-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from warm and functional I have mostly been using the inner layer as it has not been very cold here. The inner layer is warm and the outer layer together provides good protection from the elements. Fits well.
