Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is ok I ordered a size 3 XL and it was true to size I gave it to my mother in-law for a birthday gift who is way smaller than I am and it fit her well and she loves it so that’s all that really matters I love Columbia products so I just brought a similar one in the men size and can’t wait for it to get here

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket I really like this jacket. I normally wear a l/xl but because I'm over 6' foot the sleeves are always to short and the jacket doesn't seem long enough for me I got a plus size. Almost the same feeling but I do like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm Works well for warmth which is what I wanted. Just a little bulky, and the pockets were too far back on each side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dotswarm ll fleece jacket Nice color, size is accurate, light to wear but provides warmth from the dots. The red orchard is very pretty and goes well with the gray collar.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not realy warming Very thin fabric. The isolation doesn't help because its too thin to keep me warm. very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Fleece While I was expecting a red, it's more like a dark pink. Love the fuzzy collar and the inner heat system. I'm also glad that I read the reviews and upsized.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket The fleece collar is very warm and much appreciated, and the windproof lining works very well. I only wish it were larger. The fit is tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Hockey Games I purchased this coat to wear to my son's indoor hockey games. At a tournament this weekend, I saw other moms in their winter coats, hats, and gloves. I was warm and cozy in my Columbia coat. For a lightweight coat, it kept me warm and the pockets were roomy for my hands. My only complaint is that I really wanted a red coat. The coat looks red on the internet, but it is really more of a hot pink (it is called Red Orchid). I bought a size larger than I am based on other reviews and their is room for bulky sweaters underneath. The sleeves are long enough for my 5'8" body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fall jacket I bought this jacket to be worn in the fall months. It is pretty warm and cozy. I bought it specifically because it has the omni-heat and I wanted to have that feature in a fleece. So far I like it. The bluebell color is way lighter than what is pictured, though. I expected it to be a dark blue, but it isn't and I didn't want to go through the hassle of paying for return shipping to have the color changed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Womens Dotswarm II Fleece A nice fleece, but it runs true to size. At first I ordered up a size, and it was very large. I returned it and reordered. My size fits correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy This product works well as a layering piece or on its own. It's very comfortable and moves with me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty but sleeves are short It is very pretty and fits well but the sleeves are not long enough. I would have given it 5 stars if the sleeve length was satisfactory. However, it keeps me warm and is light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket does it's job!!!! I work outside and have been looking for a jacket to keep me warm. I have tried many jackets and been unsuccessful, until I bought this one. I thought because it was very light that it wasn't going to work but it DOES!!!! The best part was that my hands kept warm just by tucking them in my sleeve cuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Jacket I have a Columbia Winter coat with the heat dots and love it so I thought I would give the light weight jacket a try. A great buy for quality and it keeps you toasty without the bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight coat I wear this coat running to and from the car. It's very warm and lightweight. Knowing that Columbia runs small i purchased a larger size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from color I ordered the color black for the second time from online. The jackets where diffent stlyes but the color was the same. the color is more of a dark gray. I was hoping for a true black with this different style. Other than the color I like the fit and the warmth it provides.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good jacket at sale price The Mayan Green is much more teal than any shade of green. The fleece isn't near as thick as I expected but I caught it at the end of year sale and I'm happy with it for what I paid. Definitely buy a size larger. I am a perfect 20 and the 3X coat fits well with room for a sweatshirt or layers underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Omni-Heat I love the coat, with the Omni-heat, It really keeps you warm. Fits true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Warm but not hot I really love this jacket it is so warm, so cozy. I am allergic to alot of material that annoy my skin but this material feels soft and it moves with you. I love it with omni heat inside. If its chilly above 30 I can wear this alone and not be cold at all. I also love how in real cold weather the collar flips up and keeps my face warm without irritating it. Also on dressy nights I wear under a thinner coat and keeps me warm but dressy..I bought purple one with out Omni for other times. The material is so snuggly. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This item runs small I have 2 other Columbia jackets and they fit great. I ordered this style in the same size and it is not as comfortable, it feels a little snug. I am a little disappointed because I really like the jacket and the color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great style, colours. Bought one of these 7 years ago, and wear for work. Light weight, warm and durable. The old one finally looked old, and so I indulged once again. Ordered three in different weights for our winters here in South West Texas. I am tall and a bit overweight, but 3x is probably equivalent to a 1x.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OmiHeat Lining=No Heat! I bought this jacket because of the Omi Heat lining. Sorry to say this jacket does not keep me warm. I wanted a jacket that could keep me warm on a cold winter day without bulk. I need to keep looking. Good Features: Large Pockets, Drawstring at the waist, Collar that zips all the way up, long sleeve length and not bulky. Again I'll keep this jacket because it will be good for a chilly spring day. But was so disappointed in the OmiHeat lining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SLEEVE PROBLEM I love all my Columbia gear...BUT...the sleeves are ALWAYS too short!! Otherwise, I like it. Someone commented on the quality of the fleece, it's fine in my mind. It's a little stiff, but I like the omniheat/dotswarm factor. I will keep it, even with the sleeve issue :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from very cheap looking fleece I was expecting a fleece of much better quality, like the Fast Trek II but this is a sort of stiff very cheap looking plasticy "fake fur" pile type fleece. The collar is lined in a nice soft fleece that's like a minky blanket (or the benton springs coat i'm guessing), but the main jacket feels terrible. I wear a 1x but the body fits a bit snug and the sleeves are hilariously baggy. I'm keeping it only because it's a warm coat, but will only wear it when it's very cold out. Off to order a Fast Trek II for the majority of the fall and winter.
