Women’s Mighty Lite™ III Jacket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 225.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A packable must I'm 5'10" and have trouble finding coats that are long enough for my arms. This coat is perfect. It also has thumb holes in an inner fabric so that you can put gloves on and still have the puffy outer fabric so there are not gaps for wind to get to. This jacket is warm but not bulky so that it can be packed easily if you are going from a warmer climate to a colder climate. I usually wear a size 14 and the XL fit nicely, however, a sweatshirt or bulky sweater would not fit under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love Omniheat! Our family has purchased multiple Omniheat products and this jacket does not disappoint. Lightweight and warm, it's perfect for a variety of weather conditions. It's weight also allows for layering without bulk if needed. We recommend Columbia to all our friends. Love, love, love this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! love! Love it! I bought this jacket about 5 years ago for an end of summer trip to Yellowstone. I chose Columbia products due to the great performance I had received from my Longs Peak coat that I biught around 1998 and still have today. This Mighty Lite jacket has served me so well that I am ordering another one to keep on hand and wear since it looks like the styling has not changed. It is perfect for travel and changing weather conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! This jacket is perfect for Colorado weather!! It's so light weight but it keeps me so warm! And it washes perfectly!! In a lot of clothing brands I wear a medium but with Columbia I wear a small and it fits me perfectly! I can't say enough great things about this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jacket I bought this to fill a void in my hiking wardrobe - a lightweight layer for colder days that would accommodate one or two light layers plus possibly a fleece vest under it, and a rain shell over it. This fits the bill, has an attractive fit, and works well under the Columbia Arcadia II rain jacket I already had in the same size - medium. It should be easy to stow in my pack once I warm up hiking and the temperature rises. I'm 5'3 and weigh around 124 pounds. I probably could have used the small instead but it might not have allowed multiple layers underneath so easily and I prefer a looser fit than others might.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight jacket This is a lightweight, but very warm jacket. Excellent quality (like all Columbia products). It is definitely a "fitted" jacket which I really appreciate. If you have more of an "apple" shape, this might not be the jacket for you. Excellent value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I usually wear S in all Columbia products. This one is true to size. Great for the transitioning time between winter and spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! This jacket is so warm without being bulky, I love it! I normally wear a small (4) and the medium fits me well without being too tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So watm I purchased this to use as a lightweight jacket. It is lightweight but so warm. It will pack down to nothing. I thought it would be a perfect springtime jacket but it is more like a winter jacket. I wouldn't wear this above 45 degrees. It has a nice shape and looks good on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jacket is a Delight What's white, light, and just right? My new Mighty Lite III Jacket! The fitted, feminine design allows freedom of movement and provides a pleasing silhouette. It is perfectly warm for these cool spring mornings, and will be light enough to wear over my shoulders in too-cold air-conditioned rooms this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, multi functional jacket with style! I have owned several Columbia products in the past and love their jackets and winter outerwear. When I moved to warmer climates, from the east to CA, I looked for a lightweight jacket that would also keep me warm in the milder winters. This jacket is perfect! The size is true to size or runs slightly large. I'm 5'3" approx 120 lbs and like a jacket that is not snug and that I can wear a sweater under. This jacket is stylish and functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On the go Jacket As I own a number of these Omni-heat jackets, I wasn't disappointed. It has the lightness I prefer, yet quite warm. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jacket! This jacket is VERY lightweight, but keeps you toasty. Love the sleeves with thumb holes, so they don't ride up when you're being active. I love it so much I bought 2! The white is my favorite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very suitable I have longer arms and the sleeves are like they were made for me....perfect. I do wish the bottom hem had a drawstring though. Finally, a ladies jacket that is not pink or light blue. Love the more earthy color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Spring & Fall I just love this lightweight yet warm, wind resistant, and attractive Jacket. Got it and wore it the next day for our unpredictable spring weather. Fits true to size. Love the deep marine color. I have another Columbia jacket for really cold weather, so this is a great paring for spring weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toasty So light yet super warm. Runs a little snug on the chest area so recommend a size up if large chested (or want to layer). Sleeves good length, thumbholes are nice. Inside chest pocket good for phone / credit cards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Perfect I purchased this jacket after getting the longer might-lite. I wanted this for hiking and other outdoor adventures. It is perfect! I live on a lake where the windchill can be unbearable, but I am always warm in this jacket! Its cozy, light and fits in my hiking bag perfectly. I highly recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jacket best jacket so warm!
Date published: 2017-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable to low 30's This jacket has a snug fit so order a size up if you plan to layer. With a single layer and this jacket, I am comfortable to about 32 degrees with moderate activity such as brisk walking. The jacket is obviously very light and can be used alone or layered for exceptionally cold weather. A very functional jacket and warmer than it looks..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I ordered this in a small as I am a smaller person, 5' and about 135 pounds, but it was too tight in the butt area. I exchanged for a medium and it fits great! Love the comfort sleeves and it is warm enough for a late winter/spring day without being too hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, great fit! Very pleased with this coat definitely recommend it.. fits true to size.
Date published: 2017-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable! I purchased this jacket along with a vest and went up a size due to the layering. I really like this jacket. Light weight yet keeps you warm on those 30 degree days that you don't need a heavy winter coat. Not bulky either. The silver interior lining keeps the heat in. I would recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Jacket I wear this in California, and find myself getting sweaty while wearing it. It traps your body heat, and so the longer you wear it, the warmer you get. Not great with heavy winds, but good with water. The neck part is a bit high, however. It feels a bit weird with it zipped all the way up, so I just zip it up partway. I'm 5'2", 120 lbs, and I wear a size small.
Date published: 2017-02-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Love this jacket. It's light, warm and super comfortable. I also own the long version, both in size small. For reference, I'm 5'7", 120lbs, and 32DD chest. It fits great, it's not too big or too small, perfectly comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I originally purchased this needing a thinner jacket for the Idaho winter. My first jacket arrived and was unfortunately ripped (it does seems that the fabric is somewhat delicate), but Columbia was wonderful about helping me get it returned and another one ordered. The second one arrived in perfect condition. I purchased the deep marine color, which is a beautiful shade of blue. I'm 5; 7" and 115lbs and small-chested and ordered an XS. It fits perfectly and it is extremely flattering, even my boyfriend commented on how nice it looks! Highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love it! I love this jacket! It's nice and warm without being bulky. It does run a little small, so if you are going to wear it over heavy sweaters or sweatshirts you'll want to order one size up.
Date published: 2017-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Loved the purple color. I asked for a smaller size thinking that it would be too big if I ask for my normal size but it was actually small, so ask for your normal size! Don't ask for a smaller size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight, yet warm jacket This jacket is very thin and lightweight, yet really warm. I love the cuff with added thumb hole. The cuff, however, is a thinner material and I already have a snag. Seriously, not a deal breaker though - just be careful. The fit is true to size (I purchased a small....5'9", 132lbs) with a nice hourglass, fitted cut. The length hits several inches below the hip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty best lil Jacket ever!!! Only Jacket I'll ever wear with temps 35 and above! Super light weight hardly know you have it on. Warm and toasty the best Jacket ever. I need same Jacket at car length and I give all my others away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Jacket I got this jacket because I wanted something lightweight and still kept me warm. This jacket does just that. I love it. I ordered a large because I always order a large with Columbia. I usually wear a medium but their clothes seem to work better if I get a large. If you want warmth and no bulk this is the jacket for you. I also love the color I got.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and Comfortable I live in Upstate NY, right near Canada. It gets to be -30 during the winter months. I bought this coat with a matching base layer. I went hiking today, (15 degrees) wearing both coats. I was warm and comfortable. I'm not sure that the coat itself in our tempatures would be warm enough. I'm 5'4, 130lbs. The medium fit me just right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too tight WARNING: this coat is not designed for curvy women. I read reviews saying it ran small, so I ordered up a size to an XL. The coat is uncomfortably tight across my hips and chest and it bunches up in between. Unfortunately, I will be returning it. It is a quality coat, but the fit issues make it unwearable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from impressive The Mighty Lite III performs better than I expected! I love the comfort cuffs - they prevent heat from escaping and cold from getting in and extend a bit past the wrist and provide a super thin overlap under gloves. The extra high collar stays up to protect your neck, but is easily tucked under if you need a little breeze. I read comments prior to purchase and did buy a Large instead of Medium. This did give me enough extra room for layering. It does have adequate extra length so that if you bend over it does not ride up and expose you. If I had purchased a smaller size, I don't think it would have fit over the hips w/o riding up. I was initially going to say I wish it had inner pockets, and then I found the inner security one! If I had to change anything, it would be to add a inner security pocket on the other side (a balance thing for me), make the bottom larger with a stretchy drawstring, and add a hood. On the hood issue, I wish designers would add an under cuff zipper on the neck piece and a hood zip in option. I purchased this for a mountaineering course and hoods large enough to accommodate a climbing helmet are recommended. I like this jacket enough to not return it, but I will forego another purchase of a hooded jacket and just purchase a less expensive balaclava. I love the Deep Marine color! I will re address this review at a later date if it fails to hold up to claims of being rain and stain resistant, but after a couple of weeks in my crazy life, it still looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Jacket I actually bought this jacket about three years ago for a trip to Europe in November/December. I wanted something that would keep me warm during my trips outside and I also wanted something that wasn't bulky and that would not take up much room in my bag. This jacket delivered!!!! Don't let the light weight fool you! This jacket will keep you warm without all the bulk of a typical jacket. All three of my daughters have since purchased this jacket. This purchase was by my youngest daughter. This is a fabulous jacket and certainly a favorite of mine.....or I guess I should say OURS!
