Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favourite Jacket This jacket is the best I have ever own. The fit, style, and functionality, durability of the jacket is beyond my expectations. Just love it and even though I paid the full price; it is worth every penny. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Omni Heat Jacket I love this jacket. The fit is perfect and it keeps you warm. No need to wear a sweater underneath. I live in the northeast and it can be very cold at times. It is also light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stay warm on a very cold day This jacket runs a tiny bit on the small side but the snug fit is perfect on a very cold day. I have been outside for hours in below freezing weather and stayed warm without perspiration.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too long The coat is too long. It's the third jacket I bought from 3 different manufacturers and all of you are under the impression that 3x means 6 feet tall. This is not the case. Zipping it up is a chore and when I get to the neck part of the zipper it sticks horribly. It takes me 5 minutes to zip the dang thing up. Once I get it on, it's warm and dry, but it would be awesome if it was 3 inches shorter. I only wear it when it's snowing and I still wear my old down coat when it's dry out because it's easier to zip up. If I could return I would but I've worn it a few times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love, love, love This coat is beautiful and it's super warm while still remaining light weight. Love the liner that helps keep the sleeves down on your wrists.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright jacket This is an excellent jacket with a few minor exceptions. It runs small. The camellia red is a combination of orange, pink and red, like a deeper salmon color. I found this jacket to be heavier than I expected. It is heavier than my down filled omni heat Columbia winter jacket so I was surprised at the weight of it. My two other Columbia jackets are size 2x and I have plenty of room. This 3x just. fit. Would I purchase it again, absolutely but wanted people to know some of its drawbacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend this product! I have many different winter jackets because I have never been able to find the perfect one. I am a full time student with a daughter so I need something light weight because I am carrying it all day long, something I can move in very well, and get that will keep me warm. This jacket actually hit all of that! My favorite jacket, I highly recommend this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket I’ve Ever Owned!!! LOVE this jacket!!! This is my first Columbia purchase, and it instantly turned me into a forever customer! It is so well made and thought out. I’ve worn it the past few days, and have found new features and pockets every single time I’ve worn it. It is SOOO warm! Exactly what I needed!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Alpine Action Omni-Heat Jacket I saw a friend wearing a men's Omni-Heat jacket on a very cold night & asked if he was cold since it looked like it was a windbreaker. He told me no & explained how the reflector liner worked. I checked online & found the women's & it was on sale for $61 off plus a $30 gift card & I couldn't resist. I have worn the jacket in 16 degree weather while snow blowing & when I was finished I wasn't all sweated up since the jacket is breathable. It's not bulky when I drive, I really love this coat & have recommended it to several friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is it cold out? Because you can't even tell with this coat! It's super warm and not excessively bulky. I got the 1X because they were sold out of XL and I'm glad I did - I think the bottom may have been too snug of the XL for me. The material on this one is a little prone to getting hair stuck to it (like dog hairs) and it makes a scratchy-swishy noise when you move, but it looks really slimming. The very bottom is a bit snug, but I like that because it keeps the cold out. Really happy with this and it fits so much better than my old worn out Columbia jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm I love this jacket. I purchased this jacket for a trip to Washington DC during their winter months. The jacket kept me warm without having to layer much. The protection against the wind chill, sleet, and snow was absolutely awesome. I'm on the curvy side and had to zip my jacket on over my waist. Once zipped I was able to snuggle it over my bottom. It was a tight snuggle. This was minor being that I was looking for a product to keep me warm. The hoody was good not to thin and stayed on. Sleeves were also another great feature that helped you remain warm and protected you well from the elements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Ski Jacket So far the coat seems very warm and comfortable. This size seems to run a bit on the small size. I ordered my regular size which fit but I would not have been able to fit my layers underneath comfortably. I am tall so the arms were short on the size I would normally wear. I ordered a size up and all is good now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm Jacket Recived jacket on schedule date. I was looking for a warm jacket . I was more exited on how many pockets there is in the jacket . I was truly amazing how warm it was when i used it for the first time. Recived alot of compliments how nice my jacket is. I am happy with my jacket and think i made the best decision on buying this jacket. Thank you Coumbia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from always the little thing :( Overall the jacket is perfect. Warm and comfy, fits just right for a sweater underneath i bought a 2x but the two small buttons on the inside of the jacket are defected the lower part of the jacket. Sad I know, but i was thinking i wouldn't really use the buttons always. But it would have been nice to get what i paid for you know. I hate that now i have to return it and wait all over again. Waste of time i needed and wanted to use my jacket now. :\

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, heavy duty jacket without the bulk I wanted a heavyweight jacket, without feeling like the Michelin man, and this is perfect! I was a little worried the 2X might not fit my giant hips (as the XL was WAY too tight) but took a chance and received it in the mail and it fits great! Plenty of room, and not too bulky. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! I got this jacket right before the artic blast... it definitely kept me warm and dry from the weather elements. It wasn’t bulky. Honestly I think this runs a tad big. I was able to wear a t shirt and a thick hoodie underneath. The sleeves have thumb holes that partial covered my hand, which I loved! The hood is removable. So many pockets! Can’t ever have enough pockets! A very flattering fit, does not make you look boxy. Definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for skiing Great for skiing or to wear on a cold day on your way to work... I bought this coat for my daughter most jackets do not fit her through the waist line took a chance and do not regret it ,she was very happy with the way it fit ,said it was probably one of the only ones that fit her well ,plus it is warm and functional

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Jacket Is Not Warm You will FREEZE in this jacket. I paid a lot of money, thinking that OMNI Heat would keep me warm. I was freezing in this jacket. Omni Heat reflective lining is a JOKE. Even with a wool sweater the wind blew through the jacket. The only reason I did not freeze is because of a wool sweater. I tried this jacket without layering and I felt like I had on a summer thin shirt I was that cold. It did nothing for me but cost me a ton of money. Never ever again will I buy anything from this manufacturer. I see why prices are constantly slashed but you get what you pay for. In this case I paid 200 dollars and this Omni jacket was no better than a ten dollar joke. So I did not get what I paid for. I will stick with the manufacturer that will refund your monies, if their products don't stand up to the test.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product provides warmth without bulk Love all the pockets, especially the zip pocket on arm which provides easy access to pass, key or tissues etc. Layers well and keeps me warm in cold temps and wind. Only downside for me is that front stormflap closes with velcro and if I have jacket open, some gloves etc. will catch and snag on the velcro. Runs bit small at bottom/hips so I ordered a size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well and plenty warm Purchased for a ski trip this winter. Coat fit well, had plenty of pockets and kept me plenty warm during the trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I ordered this as I hate bulky jackets but hoodies weren't cutting it anymore. I did order a size up as reviews stated it ran a bit small. I probably shouldn't have as its a size to big so from that I would say they run true to size. Very same jacket seems light but the warmth level is there for sure . The sizing I would say is a best guess as like I said I ordered a size up because people said they ran small but this seems very true to size . The omniheat liner is a cool feature I've worn it alone and it definitely does ita job. Highly recommend this jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I was surprised at how fast it arrived, when I opened the box it was just as detailed on their online add. I gave it as a Christmas gift and it fit perfectly. She loves it and it was right on time because we were just sit with some really cold weather. It was the perfect gift!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing! I ordered this jacket for an upcoming ski trip, and absolutely love it! I am typically size 14-16, and previously ordered XL Columbia jackets which fit but were a tighter fit. I ordered the 1X in this jacket due to previous reviews that it ran smaller and hoping to be able to wear a sweatshirt under this and have some room to move comfortably. Even with the larger size, the jacket is slimming. The black color is great as it has a slight pattern to it. The jacket is not a typical down filled jacket, so it is not as "poofy" which makes it easier to move around in. Super happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Coat Love this coat! I struggle finding coats that fit around my shoulder and upper back. This coat is excellent. It is so warm and so comfy. The secret pockets are great too. The length is perfect and doesn’t rise up too high. Would recommend to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat! This is my favorite coat! I got the dark raspberry due to my slight obsession with purple & the color did not disappoint. I love the functionality of their coat. The large pockets and the thumb hole sleeve are some of my favorite aspects of the coat. It’s not bulky, but it keeps me very warm in Minnesota.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty perfect This is a very flattering look. It also keeps me incredibly warm during the NYC winters. Almost too warm! I have to take it off on the subway but the great thing is that I don't have to layer up underneath it. I can wear something I would normally wear on a warm spring or fall day and the jacket does the rest!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, Quality Coat The coat is very well made and high quality material. The colors were great as well, like a dark plum. I will say as a larger chested woman, it was a bit small there and I thought the 3x would cover that but not quite. Great coat though
Date published: 2017-12-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn’t fit right I ordered a size up like the reviews said and it didn’t fit. I’m bigger around the middle, so the coat was tight in the middle and big in the chest and shoulders. I loved the way the coat looked and also loved the thumb holes!
Date published: 2017-12-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coat ever! Recently ordered and received my coat and I am so glad that I made this purchase! This is the warmest coat I have ever had and just in time too as old man winter has arrived. I did order a size up simply because I like to wear hoodies and sweaters. I probably could have gone with my normal size, but I do like the extra room. The color (Nocturnal) is beautiful, almost a periwinkelle and the pink trim is super cute. I love the pockets and that the hood doesn't annoy me when not in use as many will. While a warm coat, it isnt overly bulky and is even comfortable to drive in. Overall I would highly recommend this as a warm and comfortable coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpine Action - Great Winter Gear This jacket is lightweight and so warm. I was out on a windy day where the temps were approx. 10 F and didn't care. After 3 hours hiking off trail the amazing part was I didn't overheat either.
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Warmer Jacket I debated for awhile in getting this jacket versus others, and choice this one because it was light weight, repelled rain and had a lot of pockets to carry things. It runs smaller because of the material, but it is really warm on rainy cold days.
