Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit and beautiful design I love this jacket. I was hesitant at first because I ordered a jacket from Columbia in a different style in the same size and I ended up swimming in it, but after reading reviews I ordered what I thought would be an appropriate size (small) and it fit perfectly. I am 5”5 118lbs and usually wear an xs or s for reference. Got it in ruby red and it’s so pretty! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color I was looking for a durable ski jacket that will last years and I believe I have found it with this jacket. It is surprisingly lightweight and very comfortable and warm. I can move without restriction in it and the color is so deep and vivid. I love this jacket!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would recommend! Very cute. Colour is as it is. Fits like a glove my size is as follows (height: 5'1" bust: 34 weight: 110). honestly would have been perfect if i knew that the jacket zips up all the way to my face covering my mouth. I would have gotten a size small because an XS even though was a perfect fit for my torso I could barely breath with the jacket zipped all the way. All in all, still kept me warm while I was skiing and was waterproof. would recommend. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome jacket! This is my second Columbia jacket. My first lasted ten years of rigorous use. It was a time for new one. I needed jacket for my trips to Europe. I purchased my jacket in January and it couldn't be better time! We've got pretty rough winter there. I was wearing almost every morning to school.The lining is so soft and cozy I could wear only light shirt underneath. It's incredible light and warm to compare to my old jacket. It protects very well from wind,show and rain.All pockets are zipped and it's a big plus. My favorite is on the left sleeve. I could keep my electronic pass to open security gates. The jacket looks very nice with feminine cut. I just love everything in this jacket. The only one thing upsets me....I live in Florida and I can't wear my awesome jacket here! Great price! Thank you Dear Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat I loved the coat just not the color Color is the only reason I returned it Do order one size up as it does run a tad small I’m so glad I read the other reviews and did that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ski jacket I finally got to wear this jacket skiing yesterday and it performed beautifully! Loved how it kept me warm and dry in the snow. The various pockets were great to put items so I didn't need to carry a fanny pack or anything! This is a durable and stylish jacket - highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! I’ve been looking for a very warm jacket that isn’t too bulky and this is perfect. Love the color, the slimming fit, and all of the features. I live in Maine where temps can get pretty brutal, wearing this with a thin fleece or hoodie underneath is perfect for those cold temps. I love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable Very warm and comfortable! Easy to move in with and without extra layers . Very durable, and not stiff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coat with style The coat does exactly what is suppose to do, keep you warm and dry with great technology. On top of that it looks great and can be worn in any situation, very stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I have been so pleased with this jacket. My sister had one and I borrowed it and had to get my own because of how great it was. It is warm, but not to warm and great for skiing. I love all the pockets and other many features that it has.
Date published: 2018-01-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice coat I bought this coat for skiing and loved everything about it except that it didn’t have underarm vents. I felt like this was going to be important when it warmed up a little since it didn’t have a second layer that you could remove like some jackets. I loved the color and feel of the fabric, I almost kept it anyway.
Date published: 2018-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coat! Very happy with this coat! I spend a lot of time working outdoors in some VERY cold weather, and this coat keeps me comfortably warm without a lot of bulk or weight. Excellent quality for the price. Love the sturdy zipper on the front, the generous size and coverage of the hood, and the outer shell keeps you dry. The thumb holes on the cuffs don't function well and are uncomfortable, but it's great otherwise :) (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing my 15 year old Columbia coat This jacket fits nicely with enough room to layer. I love all the pockets, my previous Columbia coat was 2 coats in 1, but I always used it as one coat, getting just one coat makes it less bulky. Looks very stylish and feminine, but large has enough room to put gloves in pockets and ski without it pulling anywhere. I am 5'5" and 160 lbs. Have not used it skiing in below zero weather, but I would anticipate it working just fine. Also like the thumbholes.
Date published: 2018-01-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket but TOO SMALL Normally wear size small everything comfortably. I ordered this jacket online size small and I could barely zip it up with just a shirt underneath. Definitely size up if you intend to layer up underneath this jacket at all. Ended up having to return the jacket because they didn't have any mediums left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking jacket I saw this jacket at a department store and decided to look online for a better deal. I signed up for the Columbia Sports rewards program. I got an extra 10% off an already lower price than the department store. I was very happy with how fast my jacket came. This is a high quality ski jacket. I will be shopping online from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Cold Weather and Wind I love this coat and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want a big bulky winter coat! I love the slightly fitted look because it accentuates my smaller waist. I'm 5' 4.5" with a 34" bust, 27" waist, and a 37" hip measurement. A small fit great on me with just enough spare room to wear a hoodie underneath. However, there isn't a whole lot of spare room in the hip area on me (not enough to be uncomfortable in any way), so if you have bigger hips go up a size. I've had this coat for about a month now and have worn it in 5-15 degree weather (not including wind chill) as early as 4:30 in the morning and as late as 10:30 at night. I'm not a skier, but I love all the little pockets and features that help keep the snow from getting underneath the coat. It has kept me quite warm and I can't feel the strong gusts of Wyoming wind through the coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect winter jacket! I really love this jacket! It is extremely warm- I usually wear this only when the highs are in the 30s because otherwise, I end up getting too hot. It's an active fit (so it's more fitted). I am 5'4" / 170lbs / size 12 / 36DDD bust and the XL fits comfortably. I have plenty of room in the midsection and arms, but I think a large would have been too snug across my chest and shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gr8 Gift Bought this for my girlfriend and she absoulutely loves it. Ordered medium in nocturnal color,she is 5’4” and weight around 130lb and this fits perfectly. It an definitely hold Michigan Winter and yet keeps you very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent winter jacket I purchased this jack for a future trip to Iceland I have coming up, and I cannot have been happier! The jacket is warm and comfortable, with sleeve holes for thumbs to keep your hands a bit warmer than a regular coat. Material seems like it will last a long time. Only comment is that it is a very fitted jacket, so I can only layer with thin tops (no sweatshirts for me).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket Love the jacket. I bought the jacket for my daughter but I may be keeping it. I was at a football game, I tried it on as a test run, and it kept me warm and toasty. It is functional. I can't wait till my daughter puts it on when we are at Breckenridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Personal Igloo This jacket keeps you warm without being bulky. It is a good length to wear with snow pants for skiing or snowshoeing (not too short,) yet has a flattering cut to wear with your jeans on chilly days. It kept me warm and dry in a recent snowfall, and because I love to take pictures with my cell phone, I especially liked the handy front zipper pocket. Lots of other pocket options, inside and out, too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I love this jacket. I’m finding new things I love about it everyday. Hidden pockets, removable hood. The only wish i could say in this jacket is It needs ventilation in the arms or somewhere in the coat. It’s a great coat for negative degree weather or windy days. There’s great features to keep the snow out and to hide your valuables from the elements on the slopes. In everyday errands like shopping I felt like I was going to pass out over how hot I was in the jacket— heavy sweats in weather just above freezing. I’m a size 10-12 and about 5”8 and the Large fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent winter coat! I have been shopping for about 3-4 years for a winter coat that is cute, warm and at the same time not bulky. This coat has exceeded my expectations. Super cute and stylish and lightweight and no cold air gets in! Well worth the price so glad I bought it and I love the fun watermelon color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for fresh powder Wore this for the first time in fresh powder after a big overnight storm in Tahoe. Kept me warm, and most importantly dry. Perfectly paired with bugaboo pants and fleece leggings. Big fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm I've had this coat for about 2 weeks now and the coldest its gotten is about 10 degrees, with some wind, and it has kept me very warm on those walks. I have no doubt it'll continue to keep me warm when it gets below 0 later in the year, but there is still room for me to layer a sweatshirt in there too if need be. I'm also 5'7, 135 lbs and it fits great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jacket!! The jacket fits as expected. The sleeves are long enough so they do not ride up when the jacket is used for a variety of winter sports. The style is so attractive since it fits close to the body. And the color is striking. Thank you for making such a pleasing and functional jacket. I love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! I needed a new winter jacket for the Boston winters and this one was perfect! I didn't want down because it was too static-y, so I was a bit hesitant to see if this jacket would keep me warm without down. It definitely does! I ordered a medium and I can fit some hefty sweaters underneath and not feel like the jacket is too tight. The many pockets are excellent and the quality of the jacket is awesome. Very well made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great jacket I’m a 32B, 5’, 110 pounds. I bought an XS. The wind guard around the waist is too tight to snap shut. And the hand sleeves lift too tight around my thumbs meaning that they are sewn in short. Fully zipped the length fits just around my hip bone. It’s a snug fit over all and I can’t layer under it but I didn’t want a bulky coat. It’s good for going to and from work, in-and-out of the car. I also bought a size small which actually fits a little baggy and balloons out. I can layer under the size small and use it for camping. On both sizes, the hood is big and roomy which is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice I live in South Dakota, where winters can be brutal. So far I have had this coat through one ground blizzard and it works like a dream! I have had a Columbia coat for 13 yrs and it's held together so well. This year I decided it was time for a new coat. I am extremely picky about the features, but this one had everything I wanted and more! Long sleeves are a must. I don't want to put my arms up and the sleeves go to my elbows. I like the sleeve ends that you can stick your thumbs through. Keeps the cold off your arms! I don't like the 2 in one coats, and the this one has the silver dots to keep me warm.
