I've had it for a few months now and I have been happy with the coat. It keeps me warm down to the high teens, but I actually prefer a different coat when it is below that because of the hood which isn't very thick. With everything considered, I would recommend it.
I would recommend this product.

I wanted a lined coat instead of a shell for skiing in the very cold weather. This coat is very warm which met my expectations but the pockets are a little lacking. The top pockets are smaller than other coats for wallets, glasses, RF lift passes, trail maps, etc.
I would recommend this product.

Once again Columbia produced a quality product. The fit and feel of the coat was great. I wore the coat in -20 degree weather and felt very comfortable.

Just took this in weather ranging from 15 degrees to 31 degrees with wind and without for a couple days of skiing. Pit zips were needed as this coat was very warm! I wear and extra large typically but had to get a large in this coat as it runs a little bigger than true size. Excellent wind and sleet protection. I was sweltering after a few hours running the diamonds. Great buy, would highly recommend.
I would recommend this product.

As a high school spring tennis coach, this jacket is the key to braving New England weather when having to be outside! It keeps me warm and prevents the cold breezes from penetrating my body. Comfortable and warm...you bet! This one is LOVE!

I'm a big guy and I made the mistake of layering more than I should and went hiking lets just say way too warm if it's not freezing outside. I can't wait for the snow

I bought this to get a warm, non-bulky jacket/coat for the winter. Iwanted an all-black coat. This one is depicted on the product page as being all black. The coat that was sent has charcoal-colored shoulders and collar, the coat is NOT all black as depicted. Color me NOT satisfied.
I would recommend this product.

Two years ago I purchased the older version of this jacket.
I do not use it for any athletic activities at all, its a town coat.
I returned the first jacket as the underarm zippers leaked, only to find out that it is a design flaw only to be fixed with some silicon.
The next issue was a seam opened up near the waist. I called the store about having it repaired at my cost only to be told to take it to a seamstress which I did. apparently Columbia does not want to service its products.
Now the stiffening wire for the hood has come apart, exposing a sharp end. I'm not sure how I'm going to repair that.
On a good note it is very warm.
I do not recommend this product.

Purchased this jacket as an everyday winter option. Great choice as it is light, flexible, breathable and warm. I made the mistake of wearing it one day in warmer temperatures when I should have chosen just a sweatshirt. The jacket was too warm and I had to take it off. The fit is true and I like the longer waist on it. Also has all of the snow sport options like a snow skirt, zipper vents on armpits, loops in pockets for tethering keys and such, and detachable hood. No regrets here.
I would recommend this product.

Bought the all black jacket as shown on the website and received a different colored jacket.
Instead of all black, the hood and shoulders (all the way to the elbows) are a charcoal gray.
The jacket is very nice otherwise! Great quality and will keep you very warm. Just do not expect to get the all black one if that's what you ordered.
Will be returning. Hoping to get the jacket I actually wanted
I would recommend this product.

This is an excellent jacket. It is not cheap or very thin. It is high quality and lightweight. It keeps you very warm in the cold and feels so nice. With the technology this jacket has you don't need a big heavy jacket to keep you warm. The black does have grey on it, but I like it much better this way with the two-tone. I will definitely be keeping this jacket and buying another one in red. Columbia hit a homerun.
I would recommend this product.
