Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light and Warm Jacket This jacket is very light which I love! It also has that stretchy material around the wrist area to keep in more warmth. I’m looking forward to trying it out in the Bay Area winter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a keeper Excellent insulated down jacket. Ticks all the boxes for me - lightweight, packable, seamless, appropriate length, warm, low price. I am tall and slim, size 2 and was worried that the size S would look too baggy. It fit perfect with room to layer under and did not look oversized like some Columbia jackets are for me. Got the purpld/navy version and the color is true to the stock pics and easy to match. Managed to get this on sale which is an added bonus. 100% would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Explorer Falls Jacket I love this jacket so much! Get one while they are on sale! The color is a little lighter in person but it's still a beautiful warm jacket. It's light and packable as well. Fit me just right. Columbia is such a great company to work with. I had another down jacket that they were not able to repair (the pocket zippers broke) so they sent me a credit for much more than my broken jacket was worth. It's hard to find company's like Columbia nowadays that honor their product. I'll never buy anywhere else. This was my replacement purchase. I'm excited to wear this jacket next winter in Colorado.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and comfortable Wore this on a recent camping trip, it's was in the 30's-40's at night and this jacket was perfect. I can tell it would work great in colder temps as well. Even slept in it the second night. It was so comfortable, not too puffy, and true to size for a jacket - so in my normal size I could still fit layers underneath and it didn't feel too big or small. Very excited to own this and would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Columbia Favorite I really like this jacket... the color, weight, length, temperature comfort, hood. The fit is perfect in my usual size medium. I'm 5'6" 120 lbs with broad shoulders and long waist. Perfect for daily wear in Minnesota winters. Lightweight and not too thin. I'm hoping the outer fabric will withstand dogs and branches, it's such light and comfy fabric!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Bought Three I bought theee of these...so if that doesn’t say something, idk what will. I bought a small for myself and gf and she loves hers like I do. You can dress it up or down. The jacket is really well made and super light...but the best part? Incredibly warm! I would have payed full price now after owning one. Definitely worth it! Definitely recommend! We have also gotten compliments on the colors! The only one we don’t have is the purple because they were sold out :( THATS HOW AMAZING THESE ARE! I would suggest seeing the size chart because to us...they were true to size. I’m a size 4 and she’s a 2 and we both got a small. Best of luck! Stay warm!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy Received this jacket last night and will post another review once I see how it holds up in 0 to -20 temps. So far, I love it. I clicked 4 out of 5 stars only because the color is so different than I expected from the pictures. This jacket is more like a dusty brown less like a chocolate deep brown as the pictures show. Love the pockets, the inside pocket is super deep...and has one with a zipper one without. Both outside pockets have zippers and room enough for my cell phone. It feels good to wear, and the size (I bought a medium and typically wear medium or small) is perfect, I can even layer with a sweatshirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! I bought this jacket for running in the winter (in the Northeast) - I was looking for something shorter than a parka so that I didn't restrict my leg movement. I found this to be warm and light and perfect for the job. The hood stays put when running, too, which was one of my initial concerns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile I love that it is ultra-lite and packs into itself. Comfortably fits over my base layer and under my raincoat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight & warm Love this jacket! I usually wear a size 6 and a small or medium for coats, but needed a large, so they do run small. The sleeves are a bit long, but I'm a bit short. It is so easy to pack, stylish and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Postpartum Jacket I love it, it's cute, light, and warm at the same time. What I like most is the fit, after having a baby it doesn't make my front look pudgy, more flattering actually!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Jacket I am enjoying this jacket much more than I expected. I wear it pretty much everyday. It fits perfectly and keeps me warm. They colors pair nicely with just about anything. I really enjoy that you can dress it up or down and it’s definitely not too puffy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia is my go to I love my coat!! So light weight and functional and looks good on. I love the two tone. Columbia is the best and I can always depend on their products in the harshest conditions!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dusty purple/India ink I was looking for a warm jacket came across this one and fell in love with the colors. Keeps me warm, lightweight & just awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm I have the black/gravel color. I purchased to replace a older Omni Heat Jacket. Love the color blocking, I get lots of compliments on the pop or orange. It's warm and has been helping me get through the high and lows of NY weather this year. The length doesn't stop at the hip but isn't long either. Perfect length to keep the wind out!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Been looking at this jacket for some time and finally bought since it was on sale. But shortly was disappointed when I wore it first time hiking and it ripped. The outer material is very thin and a branch hit me just right and put a 2inch slice in it on my chest just off from the Columbia stitching. So currently trying to figure out how to repair. Just disappointed that it's not rugged enough for outdoor activities. It's very warm

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm a zipper freak As an adult who does not change size much most of my outerwear lasts a long time....if it has a good quality, tough enough zipper. I ordered both the women's Explorer Falls and a boys jacket because I like to layer, maybe had I only ordered one it would not have been so obvious. The boys jacket has an AMAZING zipper, the Explorer Falls has a thin, not strong, wont last long plastic zipper that I know won't last more than a couple of years. Other than that I think the jacket is great, it is warm, attractive and does the job as expected. Remember Columbia, girls play hard too and want our equipment to hold up to that!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Explorer fall jacket Definitely as described a jacket not a coat for winter especially not for Chicago/NY colds or snow, but if you were another thick layer underneath perhaps that would help a little. A little below waist and color exactly as shown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket for the winter I ordered the jacket for Christmas and received it very quickly! It’s been terribly cold out and this jacket keep me warm! Very happy about the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thin. 90% down so warmer than other more feather % jackets I am surprised to see people say that this runs large. I am a pretty true size 8, and I ordered a medium. This jacket fits me without a ton of room to layer underneath, but I can get a few layers in. It is not bulky or a boxy and my opinion. And the medium fits more like an eight rather than a 10 in my humble opinion. The shell is thin, but looks a little more rugged than some jackets of this nature. The down is very thin, and because of that, it’s hard for me to think of it as warm. Let me explain, if I am outside and 15° weather as I was this morning and the shell of the jacket gets very cold, and I rest my arms against my belly, for instance, then, I feel like I can sense the cold coming in as there is hardly any puffiness to this jacket. I would love it if Columbia used more earthtones such as tan, or added a 10 zipper on a black jacket for instance. I feel like the colors are really dark, or sort of Gaudy magentas usually.I don’t mind the olive and black combination of this jacket and I especially like the orange zipper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very lightweight I love the colors, but I was hoping for a warmer jacket more for cold winter days. I can still feel the cold wind through the coat - this is more of a fall jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps You Warm I have used this jacket while snowshoeing in the mountains and it has kept me very toasty! I love the block colors, very puffy and warm. However, it is really not all that water resistant. I've gone out snowshoeing when it's snowing pretty hard, and within a pretty short time the coat is starting to get wet and soak through. I recommend wearing a water proof coat over it if you're planning to be outside in the snow for a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy coat for CO winters! This coat is so cozy and warm. I love the fit. The lining is very soft. It will definitely keep me warm on chilly Telluride morning walks to the gym! I'm 5'2 135lbs and I went with a small. The small fits perfectly with enough room for a hoodie underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight I love this jacket. The color (deep rust) is subtle yet it pops, the jacket contours very well and it actually kept me warm while in Edmonton when it reached 28ºF. The only thing I don't like about it is that you can't cinch the hood. It stays on your head when you have the jacket zipped all the way up, but I always like that added security when it's windy, this way I'm not walking around with my head being pushed back from the wind tunnel that is created when it enters the hood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loose fitting on arms Recently purchased this piece in small size. I liked the black/purple combination and it looked good on my body while trying. However, i was disappointed with the sleeves. First, the arms were loose and gave an appearance of over bulging arms. Second, the sleeve grip at the end of the hands was also loose. Did not wear it outside, but from it's appearance and touch felt it was a durable light weight jacket perfect for fall weather. Maybe x-small would have been better, but i didn't feel like buying one at the moment.
