Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warm coat! Bought this coat for visiting my sister in Chicago and wore it for the first time this weekend. It’s VERY warm, didn’t feel any of the Chicago wind through the coat. It’s in the 20’s, but of course the wind chill make it feel colder. My only complaint is the zipper is a bit sticky, but hopefully that will losen up with use. My sister loves the coat so much she wants one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and flattering! This is a fabulous coat. It is super warm. Since it is made with a closer fit, it does not make you look bulky. It is longer so it keeps more of you comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice coat but not warm enough for me in VT I loved the color of this coat and thought for sure it would be plenty warm enough. I was disappointed though when I wore it out in 20 degree weather and was not warm enough. Really wanted it to be THE coat and was disappointed to have to send it back. Ended up with a Marmot 700 fill down parka which is warmer but not waterproof. Guess you can’t have everything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and Cozy I really like this coat! I was able to purchase 1/2 off. Love that the fur comes off but wish the whole hood came off. The zipper is hard to manage since there are two to be able to zip it up from the bottom. Another issue, I keep finding small feathers on my shirts that work themselves out from inside. There is no velcro on this coat which is great for keeping scarves nice! Overall, very warm with only a few design issues from me. I ordered a small and am 115lbs 5'2". It comes to my knees and the sleeves are a bit long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my whole body warm. I live surrounded by fields, and on winter days, this jacket has been a game changer. When I take the dog out, this jacket keeps the wind from cutting through. I also work outside, getting in and out of large vehicles and regular cars. With the double zipper, it is easy to wear, and keeps me warm as I am inspecting and monitoring drivers. The coat is heavy, but manageable. I am 5’3” tall, 135 lbs and normally wear a medium in Columbia clothes, I ordered a large in this coat to make sure I have room for winter sweaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter Coat! I love this coat! It's super warm and doesn't let the wind through. I don't mind going outside so much anymore when it's below freezing. I just wish I would have sized up from a L to XL so I can wear bulkier clothing underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pefect jacket I am 5’1”, usually wear xs outfits and xs-s coats. This jacket runs a little large but still perfect for layering underneath. We had winter storm recently, and this jacket keeps me survive. You won’t see it’s value until the weather gets really cold, so I am really glad that I purchased it before snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty! This is honestly the first cold-weather coat that I've ever purchased. It is a great coat with lots of zipper pockets. The fur around the hood is stylish and you could dress it up or down. It's SO warm too. I'm a Southern girl that's hot-natured and this jacket is fabulous. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm, but.. I am 5’1, 150 lbs. I purchased this coat in the rust color and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!It was very warm on a day where the high was -10 with a fleece shirt underneath. I was still warm. The quality is excellent.. except the feather shedding. I know an occasional feather pokes through all coats but this one seems excessive. Love the pocket locations, love the sleeves. The hood doesn’t fit well but it is because I am short(and have a large head!!) It is one of two coats that I have(the other is from Eddie Bauer) that totally blocks the cold from the Wisconsin winters .The last item to note: the zipper. Take your time zipping it up and hold on to the end of the zipper.It is very difficult to zip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for NY winter I bought this coat because I needed something warmer in NY. The heat down in the jacket actually helps keep you warm and the length is great! I’m 5’3” and it hits me just above the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Bought this coat for my daughter for Christmas. She wears Medium in “everything”. Disappointed Christmas morning as the cost was very tight. But no worries - always difficult buying clothes online. Very easy return process and we then purchased the Columbia Icelandic parka the one I had originally wanted but which was too pricey- by the day after Christmas it had been reduced 30% - a Christmas miracle! Ordered a large and an extra large, will return the one that doesn’t fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit tight I ordered this coat for my mother, who is larger than I. It would have been a bit small for me. Very warm, and suitable for frigid temperatures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm coat I purchased this coat two weeks before Christmas. We were having mild temperatures in Indiana. On Christmas day we had snow, and bitter cold. This coat kept me warm and cozy. No air getting up my arms. I am 5'8", 145lbs. The large fits well.You can have a layer underneath if you need one. This coats is down to my knees, which is what I wanted. The Coat is well made. Plenty of pockets.The hood fur comes off. I put it back on for more coverage. Washable & warm. 3lbs total weight. I am very pleased with this coat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too big and bulky I ordered this in a medium and t was way to big. It had an odd extra collar that was probably really warm but stuck up in my face. I can imagine how dirty it would have gotten from makup and rubbing on my face everyday. The cloud color was an ivory grey. The coat was boxy with no shape and was very heavy. I’m sure it would have been extremely warm which is what I was looking for but I don’t want to have to wear such a heavy bulky coat just to stay warm. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A.E. 550 This coat can easily handle anything Chicago can toss at it! The fit leaves just enough room for a winter sweater with out being bulky or too tailored. Good looking coat that is comfortable in a wide range of temps....well made, solid and doesn't weigh a ton. Typical, great quality Columbia stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Buy! I live in the cold New England and had been looking for a winter jacket for a while. I get extremely cold and usually need to wear multiple layers. With this product, I never have to layer and so far it’s been great in the low 20s! I absolutely recommend this product for the cold nights. My only issue is that the material from the hood comes off on my clothes but that’s a small issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! This is my first Columbia jacket. I am impressive with the quality and it will be the first for many after. You will not be disappionted by this jacket. It keeps you warm definitely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really is a warm jacket! I live in NYC and winters here can be brutal. I got my jacket the friday before it was supposed to start snowing for the weekend. It really is the warmest thing I have owned. I usually walk really fast in the cold, but with this jacket, I just pulled up the hood and took my sweet time getting to a party in 20 degree weather and snow. I was so warm, the only time I felt the cold was when I took my hands out of my pockets. I also usually wear light sweaters under my other winter jackets for extra warmth but didn't have to do that with this one. Only bad thing about wearing short sleeves with this jacket is the weird feeling of the lining on your arm, but you get used to it. One thing that really took some time to get the hang of was the zipper. The first few times that I wore this jacket the zipper was a pain, it wouldn't catch all the way so only the "top" part would zip. But after a few wears I got to "know" my jacket and can now zip it up no problem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm coat, perfect length Purchased for my wife for cold, rainy, dreary European winter use. "This is the warmest coat ever" has been her mantra since it arrived. The technology in this coat, the extra length (vs a ski coat), and the water repellant function all combine to give her the best all around coat for shopping in outdoor Christmas markets in the rain without the cold weather being a distraction to our activities. Pair this with a nice pair of warm winter boots, gloves, hat, and scarf and be warm, no matter the weather or the activity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coat but runs BIG The coat is really warm! Which is exactly what I wanted! It also has a lot of pockets and is nice and long. But it does run big (pretty big, in my opinion). I'm typically a small in everything (5'6", 125 lbs, size 4-6 in clothes) but a "small" in this coat was too big. I would exchange for an XS if it was still available!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmest Winter Coat Best winter coat I've ever owned. So warm and cozy. A little bulky, but that comes with the territory. It's almost too long for me, I'm 5'3". I've had real trouble with the zipper once, but otherwise as long as I'm paying attention to what I'm doing, the zipper has worked just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warmest jacket I have owned This jacket is very warm and has soft collars around the face and neck Very comfortable. The zipper is sticky, very hard to start. This is the only drawback with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderfully warm coat This coat is perfect for errands and shoveling in the cold. It is a bit long for any athletic endeavors beyond walking though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! Love the longer length. Perfect to wear to work or for a chilly walk. I definitely think this will be my choice for cold, windy days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat! This coat is exactly what I was looking for in a long, warm winter coat! I’m 5’10” and it falls right below my knees. It has a built it neck wrap that snugs up close around my neck so I don’t have to wear a scarf. It inner cuffs are long and snug on my wrists so no air blows up the sleeves. The coat is not super poofy so o don’t feel like a walking marshmallow! This coat was a great purchase and I would definitely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m in LOVE! I ordered this jacket in the deep rust color and couldn’t be happier with my choice. The jacket is long and keeps out even the smallest of breezes. At the same time it keeps my body temperature comfortable without overheating. Great for outdoor adventures no matter the conditions. As a mom of three I’m absolutely loving all of the pockets. The two front plaque pockets hold all of my gear while keeping the two hand pockets free for warming up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heavy bulky stiff Quality is great but too bulky, heavy and stiff. Columbia quality is outstanding. They do have other coats which are as soft as a blanket with similar functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic purchase!! I love, love, LOVE my coat!!!! I purchased this coat to weather Chicago winters. I am very impressed with the look and the quality of this coat. I really enjoy the way Columbia manages to add extreme warmth while keeping it light and very attractive. The channels of down are on the inside with a flat surface on the outside. This creates a very nice, slim profile. I wore the coat at 20 degrees and snow while shoveling and found myself extremely warm. The length of the coat was also perfect as it kept my legs really warm. This is my first Columbia purchase, and I've already placed an order for winter clothing for the grandkids!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket My wife is one of those people who can be cold in Arizona in July. We were at our son's lacrosse tournament last weekend. With the wind, it was about 20 degrees. She was actually warm! Awesome jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love columbia! i ordered this coat in a large because i'm tall (5'10") with long arms. The coat is cut large in the body so i'm waiting for my medium to arrive hopeful that the arm length doesn't shrink up too much in the smaller size. As far as warmth factor goes, the inner silver lining is awesome! i have one Columbia's short jackets with this lining which prompted me to seek out another in long-jacket version. The overall quality of the coat is top-notch with extra warming details. The only reason i gave this coat a 4 was that it didn't have the inner thumb-holed wrist band that my other Alpine had (another delight of long-armed people).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must have I have always wanted a really, really warm coat, something that I could put on for those days when the wind is bitter, and cold. This is the coat. I just survived our first snow storm with little discomfort. This is the warmest outerwear I have had the good fortune of buying. And it will last for years and years. This coat may have made my winter a whole lot more fun. Thanks Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT I’m 5’6” 125# and bought a large. I’m loyal to North Face but after not really finding what I wanted and budget being a little tight, I decided to try this jacket. I live in a colder weather climate and needed something longer. I absolutely adore this jacket. I can layer without being restricted and it is SO warm. The hood is not detachable, which I thought was a drawback at first, but now I wear it constantly and not sure even if it was able to be detached, I would. Seriously get so many compliments and and very pleased with this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy I bought this coat! I bought this coat for my daughter who goes to school in Boston and walks long distances every day. I wanted her to have a coat that not only kept her warm and covered her, but was also affordable. She absolutely loves this coat- her exact words were she is warmer outside with her coat than she ever is indoors. For reference my daughter is 6 feet tall, wears a size 4-6 and the small fits her perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Buy Been looking for a jacket that does it all. I love this for its waterproof and warmth features. And don’t forget the extra 550 turbodown. You don’t need to add more layers to your clothing just to feel warm, just a single top and this jacket and your good to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality This jacket is very warm. The snaps allow for a quick button up or zipper when you have a few min more. I'm 5' 3" and 120lbs and the small fit perfectly. There's just enough space to wear a sweatshirt underneath. The only negative is that the rogue feathers tend to poke your arms when wearing thinner shirts and some feathers stick to your clothes after removing coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Coat I was gutted I had to return my L Black coat due to it being a size too small and all colors and sizes sold out. Especially sad when I returned it at my local Columbia store and the cashier bought it as soon as it was returned :(. I thought I'd fit into a Large based on how my carson pass fits me. I'm 5'5 1/2 and 206 pounds. Coat zipped up, but looked and felt too tight. I should have read the measurements provided in the fit me guide, I find it true to size. This is a VERY comfortable and warm coat. I struggled with other brands this winter, trying to find a nice quality, decently priced, and good fitting (not restrictive in the shoulders and arms) coat. Luckily, XL in india ink was back in stock, and I just placed an order. I'd definitely say it seems like a great quality coat. How it will hold up, I cannot say. I hope the feathers don't leak like others have said, but very happy with its first impression. I think its a steal at the sale price, as imo its worth full price. I had no issues with the zipper as another reviewer mentioned.
