Great jacket, very happy with my purchase. I ordered the Abyss color in a size Small. The color is more blue than it looks in the picture (I was hoping for more black), but it depends on the light. I was too pleased with the fit and quality to send it back because of the color.
I usually have trouble finding jackets because I have broad shoulders, but a slim waist. This Hexbreaker jacket fits me very well, with enough room to layer a sweatshirt underneath if need be.
I would recommend this product.

This coat is simply amazing. I wore it on one of Chicago's windiest and coldest days and I remained nice and toasty the entire time I was outside. I ordered a size medium as it does run slightly small (I am a petite and curvaceous size 6). I have to admit that I was skeptical as I am anemic and normally a cold natured person but after wearing this without a sweater as well as another recent Omni Heat purchased coat, I am now a true believer! Way to go Columbia!!
I would recommend this product.

I walk between home and work in downtown Chicago. This coat did the job with high temps in the 20s. The hood stays in place, keeps my neck warm and protected.

I love this coat -- so warm, and not bulky at all. I love the shape of the hood, as it is shaped well, stays on well, and doesn't impede my vision. The longer cuff is great, although if I put my gloves on after putting on the jacket, they can be hard to pull on all the way. But the longer cuff allows me to go without my gloves most of the time, I'm learning. The zipper can be a little tricky to get started, but I"m working with it to figure out its "trick." Hoping its not a long-term problem. Overall, however, very warm and fits very well.
I would recommend this product.

This is a perfect cold weather coat. High quality design, attention to details--extra length cuffs, slightly longer in back, easy to reach zippers, well fitting hood. I needed a medium although I am slightly over 100 lbs. I tried it on in the store before purchasing on line for the desired color.
I would recommend this product.

I love this coat.
It looks good, is comfortable and warm!
Is a little too warm when in the car but otherwise I am very pleased and happy I purchased this coat!
It does run small as others have indicated-I usually am a medium and the large fits well. I am 5'6" and 145 lbs.
I would recommend this product.

The size small was too tight in the shoulders with a shirt and fleece under it. I usually wear a small in most coats. It also has front pockets that are not deep and go in towards the belly and not down. When you bend down, things tend to make their way out of the pockets. I sent it back and really like the Madraune long jacket. I tried it on and the x-small almost fits better then the small hexbreaker. I am looking for the madraune in a small.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought this for school to survive the winter in Ann Arbor. Though I couldn't test it out during the first polar vortex because my flight was cancelled, I'm assured there will be one coming this week, which I am excited to test my coat in.
So far I've used it in the 20 degree weather range and it works great! Mind you I would only wear a t-shirt underneath and I would be 100% comfy.
Interestingly enough, I am still as comfy if I wear a sweatshirt too, not too warm. I imagine it will be fine in the negative degree range. It covers great and has fitted cuffs and also pull strings on the hood, very soft, nice pockets, easy to wash.
Only complaint is that the sleeves are a bit long.
Also, just a fact, not really a complaint, you will get hot in this jacket if you're just walking around indoors shopping, or something of that sorts.
I bought it in Sea Salt, looks great. I didn't want to look like another black blob walking around, considering I have black snow boots, and considering that everyone has the long down jacket in black.
I'm 5'3'' and 135 I got a Medium for room in the chest area.
I would recommend this product.

I do like this coat and it seems very warm. I wear a M top but ordered a L and it fit perfect. I did return it, but the only reason was because I wanted a long coat with a belt on it and that was more figure flattering to my smaller waste. But the coat is nice, I just wanted a different style.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is not bulky and a great length. I have several Columbia jackets (can you ever have too many??) and always wear a small. But this one does run a bit narrow so I can't wear bulky sweaters under it. But it is getting me through the polar vortex walking to work so I am appreciative of the snug fit that is keeping out the wind. I also love that it has a great fitting hood that doesn't flop into my eyes.
I would recommend this product.

This coat is awesome! The longer length is functional, and yet still stylish. Omni-heat keeps you warm without the bulk. And though it is a down coat, it is still quite slimming.
The sleeves weren't as long as I had expected based on other reviews, but still fit my long arms. And it does run a little small compared to other brands, but not enough that I would have considered returning it.
I was a little put off by the price at first, but I can say that this coat was worth every penny!! I would absolutely recommend this coat.
