Women’s Norwester™ Anorak is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful design and well-made jacket What a wonderfully well-made, warm jacket with a beautiful retro design. The compliments have been non-stop. It's very warm with the omni-heat technology and the pockets are lined which make it nice for your hands when it's not too cold outside for gloves. I picked my usual size M for Columbia pullovers. I am 5'10, 145 lbs with an athletic, lean build. It's a really versatile jacket that I've been using when it's raining out or dipping into the 20s. It looks and feels like it will last a long time so I am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This jacket did not disappoint This jacket holds the heat in very well. Wore it at above 5,000ft in low fortys temps and it kept me very warm. I'm 5'1" and 100lbs and ordered the size small, it fits very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing warmth with sweet style I've been wanting this jacket for so long and was stoked when the black/tan came back in stock only in my size (a miracle, I know)! The omni-heat feature keeps me crazy warm, enough to even feel sometimes too to indoors-- fine by me! This style is super unique so I really hope it holds up for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I’m 5”8 and 158 lbs/ athletic build and the large was the correct size so if I wanted to add a layer under I could. I wanted this jacket for snowboarding so wanted some flexibility in it. I could of used a medium If I was getting this more for casual wear than outdoor activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Anorak Purchased this for the field in a cooler desert climate. Did very well with the first snow fall of the year. The side zipper is a life saver for getting the anorak on or off. The quality is great ad the design is beautiful. Only complaint is that the item has a slim fit, making this item a little small for my liking. I usually wear a small in Columbia tees, a medium in Columbia pullover sweaters is my preferred fit. However, a medium in this anorak was still a little bit too small for the fit that I was going for. So, if you don't mind body skimming clothes purchase your regular size, if you like a little room be sure to purchase one or two sizes up. For reference, I am 128 lbs, 5'4" 36 bust, average build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable + Warm I really like this jacket. I was excited when it arrived and the inside was the omni-heat material (so it has a space-blanket heating effect). It's REALLY comfortable - I wore it in the movie theater throughout an entire movie because I was chilled and it felt like I was wearing a blanket! PROS: * Warm * Comfortable * Fashionable (I've received multiple comments!) * Lightweight * Lots of pockets (three!) * Soft material (And not just the inside - the outside of the jacket is really soft to the touch) * Feels high quality CONS: * The over-the-head method of putting it on and taking it off can be tricky. There's a zipper down the side that you can undo and it's easier to get on, but I do end up quite staticky!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG AMAZING This is the most amazing jacket I have ever bought and I’m a long time shopper with Columbia and I think this is the most functional, comfortable and the most stylish coat on the market, between any company.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Run small It still fits but its far tighter than my usually sizes of XL ; when i wear it ; sometimes I'll be hot but then there's time where I have on the jacket with an anark cost and a jean jacket and I'll still be cold. But for the price I paid ($176.32) I expected better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Anorak Beautiful looking jacket and functional. Bought for my daughter who left California to go to school in Montana and the jacket is doing the job-very warm. She can wear a small or medium-I bought the medium so she could layer and still be comfortable. Would buy again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something different.... Love the old school look of this pullover. Yeah, the color schemes are a little bland (I got the Deep Rust), but I think that's what makes this jacket stand out. The side zipper makes putting on and taking off the jacket a lot easier. Love the sleeves are long enough and not to tight around the shoulders (a problem I have A LOT!). And the pockets are awesome! Kangaroo pocket for your hands, a small zipper pocket, and a snap pocket that is perfect for your phone. This jacket is one you just feel cozy in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm but small I love this coat. It definitely runs a little small so I may be exchanging but the quality is wonderful and I can tell it will be warm for this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivery Haven’t wore yet but, I did try on. It runs alittle small but, it’s very warm so I have no worries about delivering mail this fall or winter. I’m very ready.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! I've been looking for an anorak for a few years now. The last version that Columbia did was nice, but a little awkward to get on over my broad shoulders. This jacket, however, is GREAT! It has a partial side zip to help with the on and off, and it fits like a dream! Can't wait for colder weather, because this jacket is going to get a major workout this season!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great on. The top looks really nice. The fit is great and it does not make you look fat. It is a little difficult to take it off over your head, but I would buy another one if it should ever need to be replaced.
