Men’s Wild Card™ Jacket is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket Used for the first time on a 10 mile hike with temperatures in the mid 30's, with wind gusts of 15 mph, and a steady wintery / wet mix for most of the day. This jacket kept me warm and dry. It regulates your body temperatures nicely so you don't overheat. The omni-heat & omni-dry technology really works. Can tell I'm going love this jacket already. It runs a little big but realistically my size runs between a small and medium. Excellent quality and nicely made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit and warm Was totally toasty at 19 degrees with only sweat underneath not crazy about the silver collar but is light and with the additional lining of down no problem for winter I like how the collar zipps up too the chin will not have too put face mask on much and will protect from cold as well on face

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wild card Great jacket. Except for the wrists, no Velcro, so the zippers are sealed. Removable waist skirt. Hood is insulated, unlike most other jackets. Liner is not removable, giving better wind resistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright Visibility - Wife can find me in a crowd! My jackets arrived in the nick of time. Had a cold spell, 29F rain and windy. My previous Columbia jacket served me well for 10 years. I'm in and out of the elements all day. The rain beads up, I just give this jacket a shake, and get in the vehicle. It has good visibility, too -- and the wife can find me in a crowd. Bright, fun colors, and this puts a smile on her face.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coat not worth $250. Returns department priceless! Fit great except for the collar. HUGE. Like Dracula. Not as warm as the 7 year old Columbia I sent in for zipper repair. Bought this with a credit. Wore it for 10 minutes talking to the neighbor. Brrr. Too drafty. Like it wasn't windproof. Maybe I'm getting more sensitive to the wind. I don't know. I sent it back not knowing that I had left my keys on the pocket key snap. About a week later I got a package from the returns dept. MY KEYS!!! They sent them back! WOW! Thank you Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter Warrior Jacket This jacket really was an upgrade from the snow jacket I had for about 5 years now. For snowboarding or skiing, it has several functions that help keep the snow out. -The sleeves have inside cuffs that cup your wrists and make sure any snow that gets past your gloves wont go much further and you can remove it before it melts. -The snow skirting is really well made, with good elastic and multiple adjustment points. -Plenty of storage pockets, maybe 7 total inside and outide -Detachable hood that is actually lightly insulated and has something inside of it to help it actually fit on your head. When I forgot my stocking hat it actually kept my head a little warm compared to being exposed completely. -Venting throughout the jacket so when it gets hot on the hill you can actually cool down. Many other features too but overall Im very satisfied with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!!! Best single-layer jacket I've bought from Columbia and I've had several. Super warm from below zero to above freezing without having to re-layer. Pit zips really do the job when it warms up. If between sizes, go up or shoulders may feel snug. Tried M and L on in a store, went with L. Absolute winner all the way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing jacket This jacket is great! Perfect for skiing. It runs a little large, not in width but in length, which is great for skiing. The Omni tech heat thing is great, I only wear a base layer with this jacket on top. The powder skirt is very useful and the color looks great!! (Orange)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little bummed... This jacket was suppose to replace an older Columbia skiing jacket, and I'm a little disappointed in it. There's little to no insulation to this jacket. It does have the heat shield technology, but it's much thinner than expected. I honestly haven't tried it out in the cold yet, mostly because i plan to return it and get something that will help protect me while skiing. Maybe the Powder Keg jacket, but still $400 is a bit high :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I get a lot of compliments and love this jacket. It fits well and is made strong. The warranty is legitimate and worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My replacement I have not used it yet. If this jacket is anything like my last one then is a gem. I had my other jacket for over 5 years skiing about 35 plus days a year and it was great. I can let you know how it does after another 35 days of skiing this season . Keep your snow dance going and enjoy your skiing season.
