This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. It fits well, does not restrict movement and keeps me warm in very frigid conditions and it looks good.
I would recommend this product.

I am assigned in Korea with the Army and did not have a jacket warm enough for the winter over here. I ordered this Jacket received it in 10 days fit great very very warm even in the cold wind in Korea. This is a great winter jacket for very cold weather and stylish. I would like to thank Columbia for shipping to an APO Address a lot of companies do not.
I would recommend this product.

Love the Black Print. I take my dog outside 2 hours a day . (English Setter) So I really put to the test Down Jackets to see how they really keep the heat in ...cold out.Last couple winters here in Pa have been pretty cold. I usually wear a tee shirt and a long sleeve mock turtle neck. I will follow up later in the winter with how this jacket does. One thing I noticed is the Media Pocket on the inside of the Jacket could be bigger. I have a Samsung S5 and it comes no where close to fitting in this pocket. Which is a bummer brcause that was one of the things I thought was neat about this Jacket. It's a good quality Jacket something I have come to expect from Columbia. Looks like there could be a tad more Down stuffed into the Jacket. But sometimes that can be misleading , Down is a powerful insulator. Most of my other down Jackets are 550 fill and this one is 650. I can hardly wait for that first 15 degree day (with the wind blowing) to check this Jacket out!!!
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this jacket in a size small for my husband and it is just huge. The body is big and boxy and the sleeves are Hulk-sized. I'm not sure if there was a mistake with the cut because he has several other size small Columbia jackets which fit nicely. It's a shame cause we like the style and it's really warm but it has to go back due to the poor fit.
I do not recommend this product.

As an owner of multiple Columbia products, I am always excited when I add to the collection. The brand has excelled at creating great quality and putting products on the hanger that perform as advertised in the designated conditions. This puffy was purchased as a ski jacket and is a beautiful piece. It fits true to size, has the necessary pockets, powder skirt, cuff adjustments and an adjustable, removable hood that actually works. My only complaint is the size of zipper used on the front of the coat. Too small! C'mon guys and gals, how can you design a great, functional piece and not put a big zipper on it. This is the outer layer! Owners/users will have gloves or mitts on riding a lift trying to adjust a zipper that belongs on a pant fly. Really? I expect better and will have the zipper changed out with the local seamstress or tailor to something more usable... as you should have.
I would recommend this product.

My son loved this jacket online! Ordered it for him as a Christmas present. Since his current medium Columbia just fits and he is still growing, I ordered a large. It is humongous! The coat is of excellent quality and looks very warm and functional but waaaaay too big. Unfortunately, there aren't any available now online. Will have to return.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for long winter walks with my dogs. I live in east central PA region where average winter temps range approximately 10°-32° in the evenings, plus wind. I'm 6"-2", 190 lbs and wear a 36-37" long dress shirt sleeve. The large fits me very well. I have an older polyfill Columbia jacket that is OK, but wanted something warmer. This works great with either a t-shirt and mock crew pullover, or on extra cold days an added sweatshirt. I like the extended sleeve and comfort cuffs and powder skirt - no cold air on the wrists or up the back. On colder days I wear a fleece balaclava with the hood up and I'm toasty warm. Because the zipper is designed to be waterproof it is a little snug running. I realize the jacket is primarily a ski jacket, but I sure do appreciate the extra features you wouldn't normally find on your average winter coat. I also like the black print pattern - different but not too flashy. All in all very satisfied.
I would recommend this product.

Great jacket with all the necessary features to keep you warm in the tough MN winter. As another reviewer noted, the only complaint I have is the small internal pocket, only suited for an ipod sized device. The rest, great Jacket, warm + light, this is my first down jacket and i will go back to on down. I got it half price and its worth it, full price I do not know. But I never pay full price for stuff.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a warm down jacket and had purchased one at another retailer. Unfortunately when I received their jacket, it was very under filled and lightweight without much warmth. This jacket is well filled, and is extremely warm. Great Quality.
I would recommend this product.

Excellent jacket and a must have for winter!
Built quality is amazing and unlike other reviews, I did not find this jacket too heavy. It is decently sized allowing for me to wear an under layer comfortably.
The only thing to note would be the size of the hood as it is helmet compatible so it tends to be slightly large for people that don't wear helmets like myself, however, it can be adjusted and I managed to find a comfortable fit.
My only critique would be that generally Columbia jacket sleeves run half inch to an inch longer than they should be for a medium size. This makes the sleeves look slightly puffy. I have tried many Columbia jackets and that is what I have noticed on all medium sizes.
Other than that this jacket is great and highly recommended!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this to replace a 10+ year Columbia interchange jacket, which while still effective, is a little heavy and dated technologically. Based on reviews that the jacket may run a bit big, I bought the Large but ultimately returned it for an XL. I'm about 6'1" and 210, the large may have been ok minus 10 lbs, it looked better and more fitted while the XL is much bigger all the way around. This leaves room to layer and the sleeves on the Large would slide up if I lift my arms up as well . Overall I love the jacket, though I have yet to wear it outside since it's not cold yet. It's also significantly lighter than my old interchange which I'm looking forward to.
I would recommend this product.

It is difficult to write a review with absolutely no negatives. I like everything about it. I live in the mountains at 9,000 ft. And the winter is often harsh. The jacket is warm, color is great, pockets are more than I anticipated and I am sure I will have it on more than any other jacket I have this winter.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is well designed, warm and a good value. But mine was very tight around the chest and waist. I have average build so that surprised me. Returned the coat and ordered a size up.

I am 5'11 160 lbs and the Medium is a perfect fit.
This jacket is very warm and works well for the New England winters with just a thermal and tee as base layers. If you want to bulk layer under this jacket i.e. fleece or sweatshirt then I would order one size up from your normal size.
I would recommend this product.
