Uses Winter


When seriously cold conditions set in, this ultralight, surprisingly flattering mid-length jacket will keep you warm and protected. It battles arctic air with 600-fill-power goose down—which is super warm, soft, and packable, and our patented thermal-reflective technology—which reflects your body heat for warmth while maintaining a high level of breathability. The water-resistant shell fabric has a lovely sheen, and the baffling’s quilted pattern goes from larger on the shoulders and hem to smaller at the waistline for a figure-flattering effect.

This product is made with 100% responsibly sourced down. We are committed to ensuring the highest industry animal welfare guidelines. Learn More »

Women's Hexbreaker™ III Mid Down Jacket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Jacket is perfect for fall and winter. I got a small and it fits great. Although I wish the jacket had buttons instead of velcro. The zipper gets stuck at times. Over all great jacket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too thin This does not look durable, super light. It runs a little big and is too thin, not a winter jacket in northern America.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Columbia never diasappoints This jacket was exactly what I was looking for, warm, stylish, high-quality, great price (I did get it on sale too). The outer fabric is soft and luxe. The fill is ideal, not too bulky. The length is perfectly flattering. The zipper can be pesky but that's just a double zipper problem and not a quality issue. The coat has also shed some feathers early on (mostly on my driver's seat). Overall I love this coat and we've already had many cold days here in CO to test it out. Columbia never fails to provide a great qaulity item at a very reasonable price point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coat for the price I got this coat for a deep discount, only $99.00. So overall I was pleased with the quality for the price. It's very warm, I'm from Minnesota and we regularly have below zero days. The material is nice and soft, I ordered the sea salt color (off white). I also like the longer length and ability to be able to cinch the bottom and make it tighter. It sits about 3 inches below my butt. I'm 5'5. The detachable hood is nice too. My only complaint would be the zipper, I expected a coat of this price would have a better zipper. It gets caught in the fabric really easily when trying to zip and takes some effort to get it zipped in the first place. Other than that, its a great coat and I recommend. Runs true to size, I'm normally a size Medium in clothes and it fits great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lightweight winter jacket I bought this is in a large due to others reviews of it running small but found it was pretty true to size. I got a large and it was a little big on me. It is very lightweight, which worried me that I would feel cold, but so far I find that it is warm without all the bulk of the typical winter jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mid down jacket I live in northern Illinois so it gets pretty cold here. I needed something that would be light but would be able to keep me warm. The omni heat is so great. In 10-20 degree weather, I can be fine with a long sleeve shirt underneath my coat. I find myself having to take off the coat because I do get very warm. The only problem I have with the coat is that the color is white. The black was all out of stock unfortunately, so I had to settle with the white. It is hard to keep it white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat, great price This was a present for my wife who is always cold but does not like to wear bulky coats. She absolutely loves this coat! Before she would always wear a hoodie underneath as an extra layer with previous coats. Since wearing this coat she no longer needs an extra layer and is warm even though the material is much lighter then she is used to. The bottom line is we are very happy with this purchase and I highly recommend this coat. We live in Ohio and the week we received this coat temperatures hovered between 20F and 0F. Needless to say that's pretty good temperatures to get a good sense of the coats quality right away. My wife is 5"5, 125 lbs. and the coat completely covers her rear end and has a inner adjustable drawstring to adjust the fit. The coat feels very lightweight but is warm,has a removable hood and has columbias inner silver lining that creates added heat. This coat is great for everyday women who want comfort and warmth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Down coat to be seen in I purchased this to wear when I'm out walking after dark. It is white and I can definitely be seen. It is also a warm coat and the upper thigh length is perfect over my yoga pants. I can also squish it into a cubby when I wear it to class, and it comes out just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it!!! I have found that Columbia is the brand for me. I had four jackets home and returned all of them until I found this one. I have long arms but Columbia doesn't skimp. It fits great and is the perfect length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm Jacket I bought this jacket for my trip to Colorado. I can say it kept me very warm while walking around downtown at night in 10 degree or less temperatures. I read a review that mentioned it wasn't very thick, and it's not but it gets the job done! Great quality jacket. I usually wear a small in clothes but like my jackets roomier for warm clothes underneath so I sized up to a medium. It fits great!
Date published: 2016-12-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! I bought this to replace a Columbia coat I had bought at an outlet maybe 15 years ago. That coat is still in fairly good shape and will still use it for grubby work. It's durability is what brought me back for a new coat! Pros: The new coat fits well! The overall fit is true to size with just a bit of room for heavier clothes. The sleeves are plenty long to help keep out the cold. Nothing worse than short sleeves on a winter coat! I like the double zipper for mobility and the cinch cords inside and the bottom to keep out the chill. Cons: (These are more personal preference) I don't care for the Velcro closures over the zipper. Wooly gloves and scarves keep getting stuck on the hook side. I will be replacing those with snaps. I love the longer inner sleeve to tuck into my gloves, but I wish there was a thumb hole. I'll be putting those in too. Overall this is a great coat - lightweight but warm!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy one size larger than you normally wear. I bought this for my teenaged daughter. She is a solid medium in juniors sizing at major retailers. This coat was small in the waist, hips, and shoulders in just a tshirt. We wound up going to a store that carries Columbia and got a different style in a medium that fit perfectly and has room to wear a sweater. I'll be sending this one back so if you normally wear a small stay tuned - one will be available soon. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it but shedding feathers I really love this jacket and it keeps me warm. My only complaint is that the outer material seems so fragile and the feathers are coming through already (had it a week). That said, it's really soft and definitely water repellant. Overall, solidly worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I love this jacket! I own the Mighty Lite but was looking for something a little warmer, so I bought this one and was not disappointed! It's slightly shorter than I expected, but fits well. The jacket runs large. I knew from my previous shopping with Columbia that I would need to size down (I'm 5'2" and 120lbs and usually wear a small, but with Columbia I am always an extra-small). I love that it's water resistant. I wish the hood were larger/stayed on better, but that's my only complaint.
Date published: 2016-12-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Large for sure I typically wear small tops. I am 5'5" and 135 pounds, 34 D chest for reference. I measured myself when I ordered this coat and used their sizing guide and I fell at the lower end of what a medium would be. I normally would have gone with the small in that case too, but the description says it runs small. It really doesn't. I wore this yesterday and though is was warm and comfy, it was a bit like a potato sack on me. It does not even come close to skimming my figure and there was sort of a 'dorsal fin' effect on my back due to the extra fabric. I had on a long sleeve shirt and a fleece beneath the coat yesterday so I can't imagine what it would have looked like if I had had no extra layers. It was 12 degrees here yesterday and it was super warm, just too big. I am exchanging mine for a small. I hope there is enough details here to help others choose the appropriate size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This jacket is light weight but keeps me warm. Haven't tested below 30 degrees yet though. This coat is flattering on and I love the thermo reflective inside and how the air is blocked inside the wrists. I am very happy with my purchase.
Date published: 2016-12-07
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty thin, barely covers butt This jacket looked like it would be a lot longer, but it barely covered my butt. I wish Columbia would show the jackets in photos on actual people, that would be helpful. Also pretty thin and seems flimsy. Will be taking back.
Date published: 2016-12-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect coat Love this coat! Light as a feather-surprisingly, yet warm as can be! Smart new technology! Inner drawstring cord at waist nips in for nice shape too! Searched high and low for fingertip length coat, which is perfect for football games. Definite winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very High Quality Coat I am a college student and its hard to stay warm walking across campus but this coat is perfect. The omniheat works wonderfully to stay warm but not sweat. The only drawback is that it does make you look kind of bulky but i don't really mind it at all. I still think its a beautiful, functional coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat I work in downtown Cleveland, OH where it is very cold and windy during the winter. This coat keeps me very warm without being big and puffy. The coat is stylish and I receive a lot of compliments. I am 5'2, 110 and the small fits me perfectly.
Date published: 2016-01-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coat This is definitely light weight, but warm. I have not tested in below zero weather, but kept me warm and a child windy night in the teens when I was outdoors for almost 2 hours. While my legs and feet were cold, the rest of me was comfortable. This has been a great coat so far in the week or so that I've had it.
Date published: 2016-01-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket I bought this for my wife. She is always cold and it keeps her warm anywhere we may go, no matter the weather. It's a great, light weight and breathable jacket that has held up very well. The only problem was that the right pocket had a hole in it, when we received it. I sewed it up and it hasn't been a major problem, and I never bothered reporting it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great coat - defective zipper This is a very nice jacket, however, the zipper was too difficult to use. It only zipped once every 5 or 6 tries. This is disappointing, since I consider Columbia to be a high quality reliable product. Also have to pay for shipping to return and unusable jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LIGHTWEIGHT I ordered S size as I read all reviews about size runs small. I am XS and S runs large for me. I kept product as I was in a hurry for a winter jacket. I didn´t rate with 5 stars because it isn´t as warm as I expected. I haven´t use it with snow but with windly 57°´s I am cold with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great warm jacket I live in Chicago and take the train and walk everywhere. The jacket is light yet very warm. The more you walk, the warmer it gets as its surfaces reflects the heat of the body. My only complain is that the hat draw cord elastic snapped after one month of use. I have tried to take to Columbia to have it fixed but they did not accept in-store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove! I tried this jacket it on at Dick's sporting goods. It was the last jacket of its kind. It was an Xs and I normally wear a size small. I didn't think it would fit but I tried it on away. Omg! It was so light weight and comfortable. It fit perfectly and maybe even a little extra room to bend and move around. I was in a bit of a rush that day so I left it. I could not stop thinking about that jacket so I searched for it on the Columbia website and found it on sale! This is the perfect jacket for anyone who looking for a warm comfortable jacket. It also gives you that hour glass look!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does not run small and the color is different First, dont believe the reviews about it running small, because of that I got an xl and it is too big on me. I am 5'4 and 180 lbs! The coat itself is great!! Warm not bulky. I could not wait to get it but now I have to return it. Also the color sea salt looks a little darker on the picture but it is actually really bright white. I wanted a little darker white like the pic. Other than that I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Coat For COLD Weather This coat is amazing. I am a college student at Michigan State and I have to walk a lot to get from class to class or to a bus stop or standing and waiting for a bus. For much of this week the temps were below zero and strong winds and I was completely comfortable in this coat! I did layer with a long sleeve shirt and a sweater with a scarf, but I was toasty warm inside my coat. I was worried when looking for coats because I am always cold outside, but this coat does the job! Pros: Super light, but extremely warm Longer length to cover your bottom Nice hood for really cold weather Stops the wind Has nice and comfy cuffs on the sleeves to kind of trap heat in and keep snow out Cute and gives you shape so you don't look like a big block! Con: It has a double zipper so you can zip up from the bottom when your coat is all zipped up. This sometimes makes it difficult to get the zipper started so I have to stand and fumble with it before going outside And I gave it "good" on quality because it seems like the Velcro that goes over the zipper seems a little fragile, but nothing has happened yet! ** I usually wear a large but many reviews said it ran small so I looked at the sizing guide on Columbus's website and took measurements and followed their guidelines. I ended up getting an XL and it fits perfectly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super light, but very warm I searched for months for a good winter coat, longer to cover my rear, but still stylish. There was one of the other Columbia styles that sold out too fast in November so I was forced to keep looking. I settled on this one because of the sale and the good reviews. First, the shipping took a little too long, over a week. Second, upon taking it out of the package I was shocked at how light it was. I really felt disappointed that it was not heavier. That next day it was 12 degrees outside with snow and a wind chill of 0 and I was outside playing with my kids. With a regular fleece underneath I stayed very warm. I could feel the warmth of the Onni-Heat on my back. Initially my arms were a little cold, but after being outside for an hour my freezing legs brought me in, the rest of me was really warm. The wind was blocked well and it was dry when I was done playing. Even with the negative temperatures I am still warm when warming up my car and to and from work through the parking lot. The pockets are great, lined with fleece. The double direction zipper works well. The hood stays on and fits well. There is a pull string for the waist, the length of the arms is good and the cuffs stay snug. the length for me is perfect, but I am only 5'1". 126 pounds, normal body type. Small fits perfect. Looks really nice with jeans or dressy work clothes. Has a thin profile for being a winter coat. So even though it is super light, it is still warm enough for Midwest winters and playing outside. I suspect if I were being even more active like skiing it would be even warmer. I have not had a down coat for many years and I was annoyed to remember that there would be feathers coming out randomly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little Lightweight This coat works well enough. The temps are ridiculously cold this week (10 degrees on down to below zero) and I've been sufficiently warm. For something this lightweight, that's impressive. The sizing seems fine. I'm 5'7" and 140 lbs. The small is great. However, the shell seems a little fragile. I've been wearing it for a couple weeks and have nearly snagged and ripped it twice. Feathers keep poking out, which looks crummy on the black. I'm also not a fan of the velcro. It snags my scarves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coat ever! Being cold is the most uncomfortable feeling for me. I've always hated winters. I don't even like air conditioning. This is the best coat I have ever worn. I don't have to stuff myself with uncomfortable layers. A light sweater,a scarf and gloves and I am ready for cold Iowa winters. My first time experiencing -22 degrees and I can honestly say only my eyes were cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So warm, so comfortable, so fabulously lightweight I have been looking and looking for a coat that would keep me warm but not be so constricting as the old, heavy ski jacket I've been using for the coldest winter days. I was dubious of how light and "airy" this coat feels, but WOW -- it is fantastic! I put this jacket on for the first time this morning as I got into my frigid car (no garage; low overnight was in the high 20s). Before I made it to the end of my driveway, I was already warm, and my entire commute was toasty. I have it in the white color, and it's beautiful. I'm 5'5" tall and 110 pounds, and the XS is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cozy I really like this coat. It's very light weight but warm. I do think it runs small. I ordered a large and I am 5'7" and about 134lbs. This coat does not have a lot of extra room. The sleeves are nice and long, which I like. I do wish the coat was a little longer. When you sit in the car it barely covers your bum. I wear this coat on days that are above freezing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short coat The coat fit perfect--very true to size! But I though the coat was going to be longer and it wasn't. Also I'm not sure how warm the coat actually is. It felt too light to keep me warm in this cold Illinois weather!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not warm! This coat is amazing for temps in the 40s and 50s, and its adorable and has all the bells and whistles that make it customizable and ultra comfy....BUT I was seriously dissapointed when I opened the package. I have sweatshirts that are heavier than this so-called coat! which is fantastic if you really need something ultra lightweight that you can wear a million layers underneath....however i'm right on the great lakes, and i need something thats gonna keep me warm in below zero temps. this isn't it. being returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hexbreaker indeed Way to go Columbia! First let me say, I've been reluctant to try the Thermal Reflective technology. But I'm glad I finally did. The thermal technology lining is shiny - but it works! Very well made. This coat is great in so many ways. For reference I am 5'4", 120 lbs, 32D, 35-28-36, slender, and narrow hips. I find the fit of this coat is superb. This coat has a very streamlined elegant structure. I got the XS and I have room to layer without taking away the nice shape of the coat. The coat is lightweight, soft, and super warm. The hood fit is spot on. Chin and neck coverage just right. Side pocket placement perfect. Length of coat covers one's bottom but still allows movement (plus you've got a handy two-way zipper to increase ease of movement). Speaking of this coat's two-way zipper - it's tricky at first - it took a few tries to get it but once I did - no problem. I found that if you hold both of the bottom front corners of the coat straight and taut you will easily get the zip to catch. This coat has a very nice classic look, it's practical, and warm! If you've been looking and looking for that perfect mid-thigh (ish) everyday winter coat - this just might be the one! I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering warm coat I just purchased this coat in the white color. I'm 5 foot 8 inches , 135lbs, with broad shoulders and the medium fits great. It has all the features I was looking for in a new winter coat: slim fit, the right length ( covers the bum comfortably), elastic cuffs, removable hood, adjustable cord at the waist and bottom. Looks very well made and not cheap like some of the new shorter down jackets. Can't wait for cooler weather to wear this coat ( well, not really, but I am anxious to wear it out and about as it's so nice looking!)
