Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I love this jacket. It's perfect for the regular winter temps in the 20's and up. It seemed a bit lighter so I didn't know if it would be up to that cold but it keeps me nice and comfy. It runs a little small but I really like the fit and the way it hugs the body. Great movement and stylish. Have always been a huge of Columbia products and this just reinforces why I stick with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Jacket This Jacket is so cute and stylish and was on sale at 50% off the regular price, I had to have it! It is the lightest weight jacket I have ever had but still quiet warm. I live in northern North Dakota, we typically see temps anywhere from -30F to +30F in the winter and so far this jacket has kept me warm. Sizing runs a bit small however. I ordered my regular size but it was snug. I sent it back and reordered a size bigger. This time it fit nice, with room to spare. Customer service is awesome and super fast at replying and resolving any issues. I definitely recommend and will be a Columbia customer for life! Thank you for giving me my faith back in the customer service industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coat, love it Normally take an XL and ordered 1X and fit is great--can fit bulkier clothes underneath. Very warm, very light and nice features such as the inner sleeve/thumb hole aspect which I had never seen before. Was in 18 degree weather walking and was warm as toast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to return, but very nice looking The sizing chart looked good for my actual measurements, but the 2x was about 4-5" bigger than what the chart states. Too big for me! I sent it back, but I can tell you this is a very nice looking jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket Ever! I am in LOVE with my KALEIDASLOPE™ II JACKET!!!! It is very light and not bulky at all while being super warm and cozy! I love the zippered pockets located inside the jacket, making it super easy to keep my phone close, and not worry about it falling out. I also love the fuzzy/furry collar - it's so soft against my skin when I have the jacket zipped up all the way. I was worried that my upper arms wouldn't fit in the sleeves after reading a ton of reviews, but I was able to slide the jacket on WITH NO PROBLEM!!! The Omni-Heat lining is FANTASTIC keeping me warm without the bulk! While comfortably snug, I am super cozy warm in my 3XL jacket! For size referencing I normally wear an 18/20 or 2XL top; bust is 46DDD, shoulders measure 18 in across, armpit to armpit measure 21 in across, right arm measures 17.5 inches at bicep, left arm measures 18 inches at bicep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Reliable I've had this coat for about four months now, and am throughly impressed with how it holds up. This year I've been in -10 degree weather, all the way to 55 degree weather in this coat. It consistently keeps me warm even when it's well below freezing, but isn't too hot when it's well above freezing. The down filling makes it light and easy to carry, too! All in all, I'm super pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket I live in an area that is very cold during the winter and I hate heavy, bulky coats. This jacket is perfect. It handles sub-zero temperatures easily and is perfectly comfortable when the temps are above freezing too. My keys actually weigh more than the jacket. I'm glad I read other reviews and ordered a size larger to accommodate winter clothing. I'd recommend this jacket to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light weight jacket Warm but light weight. I bought this for hiking when weather is above freezing. I normally wear a size 18 but bought a 2X due to other reviews saying this ran small. I think it fits true to size and 2X is a little big but is short waisted. I’d prefer a longer waist jacket but the options are limited in plus size. Buying a bigger size will allow me to layer underneath. This jacket is part of the interchange system so it could zipped inside an outer shell rain jacket for extra protection. Over all great jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy I tried this coat at a store & feel in love. This coat is light weight & very comfortable. Love the extender liner that come out of the arms that goes into thumb holes. Makes the arms stay in place & no wind goes up into my arms. The coat does run small. I usually wear a XL & I got 2x. The coat is worth the price. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Montana tough I knew what kind of coat I wanted down to the color. I spent a couple of weeks looking around on the Internet and in a few shops, and I decided to give this kaleidoscope jacket a try. I ordered a size up after reading the reviews that it run slightly small, but I wish I would not have. I do not feel that it runs small. If anything it runs SLIGHTLY small. I kept it regardless. I love i, and I can fit it over lots of thick sweaters. So soft a light weight, yet very warm. I am shocked by just how warm it is. Nice cut, feminine. Love the material. Also love the wristbands. I have worn this coat every day for the past 2 weeks since it arrived because it has been a snow storm with subzero temperatures around here. OMNI wowed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday wear I love my jacket. It’s great for everyday wear. I read review prior to purchase and they were true, I ordered one size up and it fits perfect. The warmth of the jacket is great for this Chicago weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket Bought this to walk the dog in colder temps. Reviews indicated they fit small so I initially ordered 2X, it was far too big, returned & purchased 1X which is perfect. I find it true to size. Love the hot pink color, warm & cozy with the hand covers & fur collar. Great jacket. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic coat This is the third time I've bought this coat for my kids. It's great for high schoolers as it keeps them warm without being so puffy that it takes up their entire locker - they'll actually wear a coat outside! The colours are exactly as they appear on the site. We've been very happy (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Owned since 2012! I have owned this coat since 2012. Have winter camped for 6 days in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 and various other winter/camping activities. Yes, does run small, arms tight, but I put on whatever hoodie I want and put the jacket on. It gives a bit after a while. Never have been cold but never have been hot or sweaty either. Can jump out of winter camping and go to a store and never have to take it off due to being hot. I love this jacket! It maintains your normal body heat without overheating you. It does run a bit short in back but I always have a base layer tucked in my pants. Have never had issues of cold draft. LOVE the thumb holes and fits great with gloves and makes a wind proof shield up the jacket arms with or without gloves on. Looking at purchasing my 2nd today as it has been through camping, Boy Scouting, cooking and campfires and has scars but still very usable. The old one will now become my work jacket and new one will go camping with me again this year. I am a 3x up top and short waisted and I find no issues after wearing for a while. Give it a chance, it will probably become your favorite too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Temp Jacket This is my second purchase of this jacket. My first is still going strong after two years of heavy wear but I love it so much I wanted a second in a different color. I live in Chicago and this jacket is perfect for me in 30-50 degree weather which is most of winter. It is very lightweight and really works well for going on and off heated trains without suffocating you. Note: on both I went a size up and they fit perfectly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy. It's going back today. I bought a parka at the Columbia store last year and love it. It's light and warm. So I ordered this jacket, thinking that it would be as good as my parka. Nope. It runs very small. I normally wear a 2x. But I usually size up for winter outerwear so that there is room for a sweater or sweatshirt. And I have never had a problem with doing that. This is a 3x and barely fits WITHOUT layering. The color is very unflattering, as is the fit. It runs very short in the body and just doesn't really look good on a larger woman. I do love the cuffs (my parka has them too). And I am sure it is as warm as my parka. But unless you are small, this really doesn't work. Columbia needs to look at it's plus size clothing with a more critical eye. You can't just make things bigger. You have to design for a larger frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to wear with Hoodies This is as awesome coat to wear with performance hoodies to run errands or go shopping in ---with the omni heat inside and wearing a hoodie--keeps you comfortable in the midwest weather!! lightweight but warm! :) But you don't get overheated in the stores either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TIGHT SLEEVES I purchased this jacket in a plus size. The sleeve circumference isn't proportional to the jacket's size. Sleeves are too tight!!!
Date published: 2016-12-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from KALEIDASLOPE™ II JACKET The high collar is great! It is soft and cuts the wind out. The style is fun and different from every other "quilted" jacket. Still loving that Omni heat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Winter Coat Ordered during Thanksgiving sale as I wanted a new winter coat that was easy to travel with and drive while wearing. This fit the bill and after reading many of the reviews I made the purchase. The coat fits well but is a bit snug in the arms. I can get thin long sleeve layers in it, a long sleeve t-shirt and a fleece jacket (I purchased a fleece with the coat) but no bulky sweatshirts. so far That is the only negative for me. It is warm and waterproof and is comfortable to wear. We're heading into the below zero temps so the testing continues to see how well the jacket keeps me warm :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite winter jacket I bought this jacket last year and loved it so much I purchased another one this year to make sure I always have one around. It is light weight and comfy yet so warm. Perfect by itself or layering beneath a coat. I am tall and the length and sleeve length is perfect. Columbia clothes always fit my long limbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from RUNS TOO SMALL This coat runs really small. I had to order 3 sizes larger. It also is a shorter coat with no draw string or toggle around the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice coat and fit My wife bought a coat at Costco that was much bulkier and not at all flattering. I immediately went to the Columbia site to show her some other options, and we ordered this coat. It looks really great on her. The collar isn't stiff like some coats, so she can fold it down when she doesn't want it around her neck and chin. The collar is also lined with super soft fur-like fleece. The coat looks just like the photos. She says it keeps her warm now that we've had a few days where it hasn't gotten above freezing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! I got this jacket in the Tradewinds Grey. It's more of an ice blue-y grey than just grey. I still really like the color. In multiple reviews they said they wished the jacket was a few inches longer. I would agree with that after putting on the jacket. I sized up a little bit and it's still just an inch or two shorter than I would have liked (I'm 5'7"). I love how lightweight the jacket is. I don't feel claustrophobic or overwhelmed by this jacket, but it's an easy jacket to through on and wear, or to layer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is the same arm size being used regardless of coat size? I tried the 1 X on at BassPro, but the arms were tight and the body ok, but I wanted it a little looser. I wanted to wear sweaters under the coat so I went with a 3x only to find that the arms were still soooo tight with the rest of the body being impossibly large and tent like. I am not sure who is designing for plus size women, but many of us do not have stick arms. TNF XL is just right in the arms, but a little tight around my hips. Is it much to ask for some uniformity in size? Needless to say this had to be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Jacket Replaced daughter's Omni Heat Jacket from 7-8 yrs. ago, which still is in excellent shape. The Omni Heat feature, light weight, and all the other features makes this jacket an excellent buy. Highly recommend if you are looking for a jacket that will keep you warm, light weight, and great buy for this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the thumb holes on jacket I had this coat in blk for a few years. This is my favorite go to jacket. I work outside in the cold a lot and this does the job. It seems a little thin but don't be fooled, the lineing is what makes the difference

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket, but returned it For a plus size jacket, I found it to be too short. The quality is great, and it's really light. I just wish it was a couple/few inches longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! Wanted a non bulky winter coat and I have the mighty lite vest and figured this would suit perfect. Held out too long before I ordered and missed getting the blue one so I ordered the green and love the colour!! Love the thumb holes and it's roomy enough I can fit a fleece under it on a super cold day. Almost looking forward to a cold day to wear it...almost

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jacket Works For This Cali Girl My alltime favorite winter jacket is the Exofficio Storm Logic. I own one in XL. It's lightweight, has interior pockets galore and looks great. Unfortunately Exofficio only makes women's sizes to XL and I no longer fit in an XL jacket. So as I've gone up in size, Columbia has earned my business. I applaud Columbia for realizing that Plus Size Women wear adventure gear too and that we want sporty and comfy clothes too. I already own the Mighty Light III vest so I wanted a jacket with a similar look and fit. Also I live in Los Angeles where it doesn't get too cold so I didn't want a jacket that would make me too warm on 60 degree days. I chose the KALEIDASLOPE™ II JACKET over the Mightly Light III because the silhouette looked a little more hourglass and the slightly higher and furry collar looked cozy. My hair is short in back, so having a little more collar length to keep the chill out is better. I ordered the jacket in black. While it doensn't really show up in the photos, the baffling on the chest and upper back part of the jacket isn’t sewed flush, and it does look a little weird in my book. Maybe it serves a purpose, but I think it would have looked better flush and sewed down. The omni heat works very well and for So Cal temps is fine for me. I do prefer a jacket with primaloft because it regulates with your own body temp better in my opinion, but Columbia doesn't offer that in their clothes. I wish this jacket had an adjustable cord for the bottom, because i would like to be able to adjust the fit a little. I was between this and the Voodoo Falls Turbo Down (that has an adjustable bottom) but that jacket seemed a lot warmer so I chose this one. So here’s why I’m going to rate this jacket 4 stars vs 5 - Columbia are you paying attention, this is important - you need to cut your sleeves wider in your Plus Sizes clothes across the line. I do fit in the sleeves in this jacket, but it’s snug. I’ve found this to be a problem in their shirts as well and I’ve read many plus size women complaining about sleeve size in the jackets too. Not just this jacket, but other Columbia jackets too. If you’re a plus size woman, you’re not only bigger in bust, hips, and stomach, you’re probably bigger in the arms too. I can only wear this jacket with a thin long sleeve shirt under and even then it’s snug. There’s no way I could wear a thicker shirt or sweater. I actually spent time on the phone with a Columbia rep so I could get the shoulder and sleeve sizes before I chose a jacket. It would be nice if those numbers were included on the website. This is a nice jacket and Columbia makes good quality products. Just please listen and start making the sleeves wider on Plus Size Womens clothes. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back for another! So many new colors this year! I own this coat in black and came back for the white one, but I have my eye on the Nightshade color as well. Beautiful! This is my go to, super stylish jacket when I need something light, but toasty. I find this jacket to have a slight slimming effect too, so...bonus! Be warm! Be stylin'! Get this jacket and get ready to receive tons of compliments!
