Last year I bought a down vest with omni-heat. I love the vest though it was a bit snug. This jacket is a bit roomier and very comfortable! The sleeves are nice and long!
I would recommend this product.

very comfy, but it is already smelly! I am a biker and I wanted a down coat for it's non-synthetic breathability. Even though the down is "all natural" the inside gets HOT AND SWEATY! Maybe would be good with armpit breathers? I want a coat that is warm enough and breathable enough for winter biking...
On the up side, it is so cozy and comfortable AND WARM when sitting around the cold house! arms are long, body is great size!
I would recommend this product.

I just love this jacket. It's warm, without being stuffy and it looks good. My favorite feature though is the hidden cuff in the sleeves of the jackets. No wind or snow is going to blow up your arm.

I had a down vest that I got at JCP 10 years ago for 50 bucks that keeps me warmer. It has only been in the high 30s low 40s here lately, and I have still felt chilled wearing it. The color looks different online than in reality. The omni shield works wonders though! Just a little soap water on a sponge takes most spills right off
I do not recommend this product.

I recieved this jacket in less than 24 hrs & was shocked because of the Holiday rush. It's extremely light but very warm, even with a t-shirt on. I don't like anything bulky especially w/I drive. I love this jacket. I would highly recomment this jacket. I also read a comment from another buyer who stated that all the feathers started to come out. I've had this jacket for a couple of weeks now, and I haven't seen one feather come through yet.
I shopped all over for the right jacket. I'm extremely happy w/my choice. Thank you Columbia.
I would recommend this product.

This is the BEST jacket. I live in Minnesota and it is pretty cold, but this jacket keeps me toasty. It has so much less bulk than my ski wear that it is my jacket of choice for commuting or going out. It also looks great. I have had several people come by my cubicle at work just to look at this jacket and see how light weight it is. And I get lots of compliments when wearing it. I love the bright yellow color because the bus driver can see me standing at the stop. I can't say enough good things about it. It's worth the money. Get one.
I would recommend this product.

I got this in Ice Grey and did not like the color. The coloring almost looked like it had bled out in the creases like tie-dye. I could also see through the material (I don't think the other colors would do this) and see the feather outlines which I thought made it look cheap. Sizing was accurate as I usually wear medium and the medium fit nicely. Jacket was warm when I tried it on, but was not quite what I was looking for in a "poofy" jacket.
I do not recommend this product.

Attributes - light weight, great mobility, yet surprising warm.
Every bit, as described.
Exposing this product to the windy winter weather of SW Montana. Work in a sporting good store, & see many name brands to compare. This one's a winner!

I like this jacket but the fit doesn't work for me. The M was too tight under the arms & across the hips & chest while the sleeves were too long.
I tried the large, and the body fit better, but it still pinched under the arms and the sleeves were of course even longer.
They were out of the Sea grape in L so I tried the yellow. When I took it out of the box, I thought I'd already gotten dirty fingerprints all over it. But when I looked closer, I saw that it was the darker down feathers showing through.
I didn't want a jacket that always looked dirty as well as not fitting properly, so I'm returning it and also giving up on this jacket altogether. :(

I bought this for my fiancé and she loves the style, color and the way it fits, but it simply doesn't keep her torso warm enough in 0 to 7 C weather with a shirt, sweater and scarf underneath.
She wanted to keep it clean so she only wore it in clean, non-dusty cities; yet, the cuffs still got slightly dirty, perhaps to be expected with an almost-white jacket, but she's extremely clean and careful and it was only a week of use at this point.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is the BEST! First of all, the wild melon color is what drew me to it-- LOVE! When I tried it on at the PDX store, I was sold! But the few days after the holidays when it was in the 20s and I was as warm as could be without any bulk is what has me writing this review. We went for a hike and everyone kept asking me "are you going to be warm enough in just that?" I figured the only way to know was try. Not only was I warm enough, but the way the fabric breathes I was never too warm. It was a great trial run. And, for the daring, I say wear it inside out--- that inside fabric is fashion forward!!
I would recommend this product.

This is a nicely made jacket but it runs a bit small. I bought a medium for my wife but it was fairly snug on her with not enough room for any layering underneath. She is not a Large in any type of apparel. I recommend the jacket but keep in mind it runs small.
