This jacket looks light, but it has a substantial weight to it and it's warm enough for Chicago, which has had several sub-zero-degree days this winter! It's an efficient jacket; the Omni-heat reflective technology keeps me warm when I'm outside, and the Omni-shield seems to repel snow (it hasn't been warm enough for rain), yet it's not bulky. Like the adjustable cuffs, hood, and the interior pockets. The zipper seems sturdy and works well. The fit is a bit snug, so I'm glad I read the other reviewers' comments and ordered a size up. I like this one so much, I am planning to get another Omni-heat coat!
I would recommend this product.

After trying many jackets, I tried this one. It's very good -- using newest omni-heat material so it's light, not bulky, and warm. But it is designed for you MOVING -- as soon as you walk, move your arms, etc (like skiing would do) you are warm. Any activity at all and you will be toasty. And it covers your butt so that is important for warmth. I would have liked a double zipper but honestly it's an excellent jacket and I do recommend it. Everyone else thinks so too since they all want mine. :-)
I would recommend this product.

Wore for the first time on a day with -20 wind chill skiing. Coat performed well and was as warm as could be expected with that type of cold.
The hood does not completely cover a helmet, and also does not allow the collar to zip up completely in the front. If I were not wearing a helmet it most likely would fit well. This allows for a wind gap under your chin. Who designs this stuff for skiing ?
I do not recommend this product.

This jacket is stylish and comfortable. I am 5'7 and 135 lbs. and bought a size large. It is a good fit for me. No need to layer because the jacket is warm enough by itself. I love the jacket in white and it is sleek enough that I don't look like a marshmellow. FIVE high fives for this jacket.
I would recommend this product.

Jacket is very cute, but is sized small. I bought XL and jacket looks more like Medium. I will keep it as it is well made, but will not be putting layers under it. Is also not as warm as I thought it would be, but live in Minnesota, so maybe we need heavier jackets here!! Have recieved compliments on it, and have been told that it will not be as warm as I thought it would be.
I would recommend this product.

This coat is very warm & will keep you dry. It does a very good job of keeping you from over heating with under arm vents so you stay dry & warm. Fit runs a little small. Looks better than it does online. Looks fantastic on, not boxy. Allows for layering. Taking this coat back home to Alaska!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this because I desperately needed a new ski jacket. I live in Minneapolis and got this just in time for the temperautre to hit -20 (-50 wind chill). This jacket is great. I LOVE the thumb holes to keep air from going up the sleeves and to keep them in place. The velcro cuff is also easy to use so I can put gloves or mittens on and it's super easy and quick. It keeps me warm without feeling like Randy from a Christmas Story ("I can't put my arms down"). I can't wait to hit the slopes with this jacket!
For the color, I chose the purple. I was skepticle and undecided but went with my gut. I really love the purple. It's bright enough to not look like a weird shade of black, but not so bright that I stand out like a sore thumb. Love not looking like everyone else and still being stylish!
Really, I would buy this jacket again. The only problem is that now I want to get some gray ski pants to go with it!
I would recommend this product.

I go to school at Ohio State, and we have a huge campus that requires a lot of walking--it's especially hard walking around when it's so cold outside! But you can't miss class, so that's why I decided to order this coat. It's kept me so so warm, but it's not a coat that would make you sweat from being too hot either. I love the overall look of the coat, as well. It's very feminine and flattering. I would recommend this coat to anyone looking to stay nice and warm!
I would recommend this product.

I returned this coat because it has velcro closures and that sticks to my scarves and hair. I wanted snaps all the way down in addition to the zipper. I have an old Medium size columbia that i love with snaps and zipper but it is not warm for cold weather. This XL was tighter than my old medium coat, especially in the arms. Wish you made one with snaps and zippers like my old one.
I would recommend this product.

I am so pleased with this jacket! I have worn it skiing multiple times in below zero weather and pouring rain. In both conditions the jacket kept me warm, dry and very comfortable. It fits well, looks nice, and I love the purple color!

This coat looks great on. I am a little bottom heavy, so like all Columbia coats, it is a little snug near the hips. I got a Size Large in the Black. I have gotten many compliments on it already. Love it!

I love this jacket! The fit is very flattering, it's not to puffy and it still keeps me warm in Chicago with the -40 windchill! I'm so happy I purchased this! I'm about 5'5'' and 120 pounds and a small fits me well. When i try layering A LOT is it a little tight around the shoulders but nothing that would bother me too much.
