I just got this last week and almost returned it after I couldn't get the zipper up (it's a double zipper). After playing with it for 10-15 minutes, I was able to get it to work and now it is "breaking in." It's still somewhat difficult to zip and unzip, but it seems to be improving so I plan to keep it.
Otherwise, I love the color (white) which goes with all kinds of bright scarves and hats! It's a very warm but lightweight coat. I can fit a couple layers including a sweater under it. I'm 5'1" and 112 pounds and got a small which fits great. It's long and goes down to just above my knees which keeps me warm on cold days. I like that the hood detaches and the sleeves are plenty long as I like with a nice snug liner to cover my wrists.
I would recommend this product.

Size is true, I have purchased many, many Columbia garments for myself and daughter. Most at stores. My online items do have issues which I will talk to customer service. I purchased 3 of the same coats. They are great. Fit well and feel yummy. Yes yummy! Light weight and very warm, even in the worst weather here in Minnesota.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered a size up b/c everyone said it ran small. But, it fit me in my hips, but everywhere else it was too big. Just like someone else said, it looked like a black trash bag on me. I normally love Columbia stuff, but the sizing is odd on this coat. I returned it
I do not recommend this product.

I wanted a long puffer coat that was waterproof and would keep me warm and this definitely did the job. It is extremely warm and the fit is perfect. I love that it doesn't make me look boxy and gives me shape. I love the pocket on the inside and how the sleeves have a built-in under armour type slip. The color is really nice too. I am very happy with my purchase.
I would recommend this product.

This coat over all was exactly what I wanted. The style is nice, not too bulky but very warm. Nice shape to the coat. However it runs very SMALL. Order the next size up even if you think you will be fine based on the measurements.
The zipper on my coat sticks quite a bit and some of the stitching above one of the pockets started coming undone. Unfortunately I am unable to return this coat or exchange it because the tags were removed.
Overall its a nice coat, just be sure you really like it and check it over before you remove the tags. There is a warranty on the product, but they website says it takes the company 4-6 weeks to fix any problems.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this coat for my daughter as a gift. She loves the feel, look, and comfort of this coat. She was particularly interested because of the warmth the coat has and will provide in the winter months.
I would recommend this product.

The jacket is medium weight and fits pretty well. I am 5'5" 127 lbs with a 32 DDD bra size. I ordered a small after reviewing the chart sizes. The jacket fits nice in the arms, hips, and is a great length (hits 4 inches above my knees). It is a little snug in the bust and waist.
It is great quality and keeps me warm in the Wisconsin winters while I walk to classes on campus.
If you want a medium weight and price range jacket this is a great choice.
I would recommend this product.

I recommend this coat. The one annoying feature is that the zipper is tricky to use and being someone who is ducking in and out of warm places all day in NYC that is a nuisance. But it is warm, light and comfortable!
I would recommend this product.

I really wanted this jacket to work.....The jacket is made well. I have been buying Columbia for many years and the quality is fine. I give this coat 4 stars only because the fit was not right for me. I am about 34-27-35, 32D, weight 120 pounds, 5 foot 4 inches tall. The length was fine and the overall fit was fine. What I did not like was the bell shaped bottom of the coat. If it were a subtle shape I would have kept the coat. But I have narrow hips....and the shape of this coat did not work for me - it looked exaggerated and not so flattering. The waist is more fitted than I would have liked too. I don't want to swim in my coats but I would like a to find a middle ground between too fitted and too big. I thought the arms were fine, the baffling was well done, the hood fit well, and the pockets are great. It may be hard to tell from the photo but there are 4 pockets on the outside.....2 hand pockets and 2 horizontal pockets below hand pockets on the side (all zippered). If you have shapely hips and a small to average waist you may like the fit of this coat.
I would recommend this product.
