Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Purpose Coat I am very pleased with this coat. It is lightweight but very warm. It is a nice length that works well with pants, skirts and dresses. The hood is very snug and doesn’t fly off my head in the wind? I wore it in a fairly steady rain - it kept the water out and didn’t get weighted down. I am still additional little features like a strap to “tie down” the hood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Price misleading This long jacket was on sale reg$200 for $79.98 . And I received a birthday coupon so I thought wow a warm lightweight coat at a great price. Well received it and price was $100 on tag. Coat is nice but not as warm as I intended or expected it to be. Fit is good. If I lived in colder climate I would send back. Was wanting it to replace heavier older coat but that won’t happen with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Purchase I purchased this coat online when it went on sale. I was a bit worried about warmth and fit when purchasing online, as I did not get the opportunity to try it on. I read others reviews and noticed how great they were- and went ahead and purchased. I am so glad I did! This coat is perfect for Michigan winters with typical below freezing temps. It keeps my very warm- and covers my behind which is always a plus for me. I am a true size small in coats and this was a perfect fit all around. I would recommend this jacket to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping it I loved it, keeping it. Somehow, it looked like the jacket from Uniqlo.IDK. But what I was thinking, it is Columbia.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coat, online color is a bit off All in all the coat is exactly what was desired from a functional standpoint. That said, the color was much more purple (Barney-like purple) than conveyed in the on-line photo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm mid-weight winter coat Bought this coat to keep warm on cold days in Texas (30's and 40's). Love the longer length, pretty color and light weight. Very comfortable to wear. I am 5'6" and 115 lbs, and the small size fits fine with room for a layer under. The metal zipper, which can unzip from the bottom, is a nice feature as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coat I did enjoy this coat however I purchased another coat from here because I’m ALWAYS COLD I’m 5’4” 113 pounds and I purchased the xs and it was a little big. I enjoyed this coat, but I like heavier feeling coats so if you like lightweight and warm, this is the coat for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely warm jacket I love this jacket because it is so warm in weather below 30 degrees and heavy wind. The sleeves are very long, which I really like. Zippers on the pockets are helpful too. I do miss not having an inside pocket but it's an excellent jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Winter Jacket! I purchashed the dark raspberry jacket but the real color is a kittle off. I was expecting a burgandy color but received a purple-ish color jacket. I kept it because it is very comfortable and light. However, you will need to put a sweater underneath because this jacket is only adequate for 30 degree weather but nothing below it. I wish it had more padding or heat technology. I would have also liked the hood to have fur to cover from snow. Other than that, I enjoy wearing the jacket because it doesn’t feel bulky and heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but.... Lovely color, fits well, medium weight. But I think the price was misadvertised and that is why I gave it four stars instead of five. Supposed to be half off of $200, but the original price tag that came on the coat was $100. So this was no deal, no deal at all. Have complained to customer service, but they did not seem to understand my issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You CAN put your arms down! This nicely styled coat won me over for warmth, function, and comfortable fit. I have tested it while wearing cold weather clothing with or without sweaters of varying thickness. Temperatures outside at 36° with a wind chill of 32°, or a morning at 24°, served to validate my wise purchase. The Karis Gale Long Jacket blocks wind and keeps the cold from seeping through. I have all the flexibity needed for outdoor dog romps and activity. Having a two-way zipper is a convenience, too. A size Large fits my 5'8" frame in layered clothing without being bulky nor too loose. The Karis Gale length is an additional prized feature and the side pockets zip. I consider the coat a comparative best choice over similar coats. Yes, you will be able to put your arms down as usual and look great for winter!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from kate822 This is a very nice jacket but runs a little large/roomy - be aware that Columbia has different types of "fit" - active and traditional. You may need to size up for the active fit and size down for the traditional...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night Shadow is Teal, not Blue The night shadow is a pretty color but my laptop shows it as dark blue. When it arrived, I was surprised that it was much more teal than blue. It is a nice departure from black. The jacket has good weight and thickness that should work for me at 30 degrees but probably not lower without layering. I ordered size small (5'6", 112 pounds, 36B) and I have room for a Columbia fleece with a long sleeve shirt underneath. The jacket is long so it covers to about 6 inches above my knees. The sleeves are plenty long and insulated well. This is a high quality product but the "original" price on the website when I ordered it is different than the tag that is attached. The tag hanging from the sleeve clearly says $100. Regardless of that discrepancy, I love the jacket and will definitely keep it. (I returned the Mighty Lite jacket earlier that is similar but too thin for my needs.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I love this coat! I got the off white color and I was hesitant to get it, but I am so glad I did - I have gotten tons of compliments. It fits like a glove. I love that there is a zipper on the bottom so that you can sit down without feeling like your going to rip the seems. It is so warm and comfortable for how light it is. I’m easily able to wear a sweatshirt under it without feeling like it’s too tight. I ordered a small and I’m 5’3” 140lbs. Great coat for the weather in the Midwest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Columbia! I had bought a different style (Mighty Lite) on sale at end of last winter. When I tried to wear it for first time this winter, the zipper did not work. I called customer service and the people there were fantastic, making a return for a fix or credit very easy to accomplish. When they couldn’t fix it, they gave me a credit for the full price (not the sale price I had paid) so I could replace it. I replaced it with this coat and I’m delighted. It is NOT made of down, to which I am allergic; it is cozy and comfortable and very warm. The small fits me perfectly and I love the dark raspberry color - it is not too bright and I don’t look like every other person in town who is wearing a black quilted jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light but Warm First the product runs true to size. I’m 5’4”and 115 pounds. The size small fit me well and allows room for a sweater or other layers underneath. I loved the rasberry color and it was just as pictured online. The fit is very flattering, it’s not too puffy, and looks attractive on. Some cons are there is no lining inside the jacket, and there’s no elastic around the cuffs of the sleeves. However there is a lining inside the hand pockets, pockets have zippers, and the hood does have a Velcro closure All the zippers on this coat are metal which I like because I feel they hold up better long-term. Warmth of the coat is very good! I live in New England and use this coat for church as well as when I know I will be outside with not much physical activity and I want the length and the warmth. I like that there is s two way zipper when I sit down. I did speak to customer service about the Mighty Lite coat with Omni. If I planned to be more active In this coat I might have chosen that one. But if I’m more active I prefer a jacket over a coat. Fyi - the Mighty Lite has about one third less fill so I felt Katis coat was a better choice for me. Perfect for my needs and extremely happy with the purchase. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coat The coat is lightweight but very warm without the bulk. I love the purple color and the length of the coat which keeps a good portion of my legs warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat, Great price! Love love LOVE my coat! I live in MI where it is currently in the negative temperatures, and this coat keeps me so warm - and my favorite part is that I can move around great and chase my two children under the age of five, without feeling super bulky and restricted. Love the way the coat zips all the way up and keeps my neck warm, but doesn't feel like it is choking me. I am so happy I decided to buy a long coat to keep the lower half of my body warm; the zipper at the bottom allows you to unzip a little bit before you sit down or spread your legs so you aren't crammed and ripping your coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I have been looking for a longer jacket. We have been having some pretty cool weather lately and I have been wanting something a bit longer than what I have. I wanted warm without a ton of bulk and this jacket has it. I usually wear a medium in most brands and this one is pretty roomy. I can layer under it without looking stuffed in. The two way zipper allows you to bend and move freely. The sleeves have a soft fleece lining just in the last few inches which I SO appreciate on cold days! Overall, this is a great jacket, especially for the price, and I’m glad I made the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light coat for ~30-50F This coat is super light, but warm enough for 30-50 degree weather with just a shirt / light sweater (single layer) underneath. Anything below that, you'll need to start layering with fleece. With extra layering, it'll probably be warm enough for even colder temps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket Very nice jacket. The raspberry color is great and the fit is flattering. Jacket runs true to size. The material seemed thinner than I expected but has kept me warm and cozy in 20-30 degree weather. Overall, I would recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Lightweight but so perfect I bought this as a present for my best friend for her birthday. She absolutely loves it. She has long arms and was so excited that the sleeves covered her wrists! She said she's never had a coat that had such perfect sleeve lengths before. It's really leightweight and looks so beautiful on her. The cloud color is a very, very light gray. My only concern is that it is going to get dirty easily. It's so nice looking and will really keep her warm on the cold days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. I live in Central Alaska and it gets crazy cold and windy, sometimes -40F or colder. I need a jacket that covers my butt and legs, that I can wear layers under, and also breaks the wind. I previously ordered a jacket from Columbia that was also a medium but it ran small so I couldn’t layer clothes. So I gave it to a friend and bought this Karis Gale jacket. The Karis Gale Long jacket fit my needs perfectly, I can wear a thick hoodie or sweater underneath and still be able to move around, and it keeps me warm without overheating. The inner cuffs are fleece lined up to the wrists which is a nice feature in case you don’t have gloves on and just stick your hands in your coat. The 2-way zipper is convenient for sitting and driving. For reference: I am 5’3”, 145#, 35-36in bust, and a big behind, and the medium fits me with room for layers and doesn’t pull anywhere or feel snug at all. But it also does not look baggy and sloppy. Lots of compliments. For those wondering if it's warm, it is. However if you’re planning on being outside in the cold without layers, this coat won’t keep you warm for very long. I put it on over my tank top when I left the gym on a windy day and I could sort of feel a chill going through. But if I had been wearing long sleeves I would have been okay. The coat isn’t quite as puffy as I thought it would be but it’s still very nice, and it washes well. It does not have the Omni heat feature but it doesn’t need it. It has a little inside chest pocket that Velcros shut which is perfect for my work ID. Overall this jacket serves the purpose I need it for, which is commuting and walking moderate distances in the fridgid Alaska winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Columbia great Value As soon as I received this coat, I wanted to order another but they were sold out in my size. It isn't bulky but very warm. It is stylish and a flattering cut. It can be dressed up or down. To top it off it was extremely affordable, especially compared to other top name brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter Jacket! I love this jacket! It’s warm enough to keep me cozy during the cold Chicago winter, but the color and cut is cute enough that I don’t feel like a huge blue marshmallow. It’s the perfect jacket for running around outside during the afternoon, and for an especially cold date night. Did I mention I love it? I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy 2017 This coat is perfect for temperatures in the 30's to low 40's, in the Chicago area. I love the length and the lack of bulk. I especially love the color, as black gets so tiresome by mid-winter. I also love the fact that it is synthetically insulated, rather than insulated by any kind of animal 'down.' Bottom line...I love, love this coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passes the sub-freezing test! I got this coat just in time for the below freezing all day, every day temperatures. It has not failed me! I bought my usual size small, and it’s loose enough to layer underneath but snug enough to keep in the warmth. I’m 5’1” and the length is just right. The night shadow color is absolutely beautiful. I can wear it it with tan, black, or even colored pants without clashing. The sleeves have fleece lining just at the ends, which is fabulous when you’ve forgotten your gloves! The only thing I would possibly change is the Velcro...it makes closing the coat quite easy, but Velcro also tends to get caught on things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat! I love this coat! We have had below zero temps for the nearly 5 days since this coat arrived and it has kept me toasty warm everyday while I walked across parking lots, pumped gas, walked the dog, etc. The snug cuffs are terrific, it’s nice to have my rear covered and the lack of bulkiness in the car is wonderful. I have received more compliments on this coat than any other. Just wish I had gotten another one in a different color so I could mix it up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter coat I was looking for a warm winter coat that would be good for everything from going to work to going out to dinner to going for a walk. Since I live in a rainy area a hood was also a must. So far this coat has been great. It's comfortable and it's warm and fits great. I also love that it has nice deep pockets so my keys and phone don't fall out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not warm and cost error I'm 5'4" and 125 pounds. The coat was beautiful (dark raspberry) and the small was a perfect fit for me. Upon opening the jacket, I wondered how it could possibly be warm since it was so thin. Went out walking my dog in 32 degree weather with no wind and I was very cold - even with a sweatshirt and another shirt underneath. Very disappointed in this product and am returning. Also, the sticker price was $100. This item showed at $200 online but was really priced at $100 in the stores. Not good marketing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Night Shadow is beautiful! I did a lot of research and was between a couple of different Columbia jackets. I ended up going with this coat since it was a fantastic deal and it seemed to be more insulated than the other jacket I was looking at. Upon receiving this jacket, I was pretty shocked by how thin it was. It was almost the same thickness as the inner layer that came with my boyfriend's Columbia ski jacket. However, it's been frigid in New England this past few weeks and this coat has been more than warm enough! The fit is super flattering and i get so many compliments. The color is absolutely beautiful. I thought the sale price was a super good deal since the coat is worth $200, however, when I received the coat in the mail, it had a $100 price tag on it! So even though I wasn't getting quite the deal I thought I was getting, I love this coat and would recommend it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not that warm This coat was not warm enough for the winter temperatures that we've been having in the Northeast lately. When I received it I immediately went for a short walk around the block to see if I would be warm. I was not.This is disappointing because I have another Columbia coat & I'm usually sweating in it due to warmth. Unfortunately I had to return this one.
