This coat keeps me very warm and keeps the wind out. It is a little bulky around the collar with the hood but not enough to remove the hood. It is very fashionable and I feel classy in it. I would highly recommend this coat.

This coat fit the bill with ski jacket features like Omni-Heat, hood, fitted wrists and a zippered panel underneath the buttons to protect from the wind and cold while looking stylish with dress clothes. The wind and rain repellency are great. Being 5'5' and 128 lbs., the medium fit perfectly with enough room for a bulkier layer (sweater/shirt combo) underneath.
I would recommend this product.

The one thing I have noticed is that my arms are cold. I thought at first the sleeves didn't contain the magic dots, but they do. I find that if I am shoveling snow, my arms are very, very warm but as I drive to work and then walk from the car to the office, my arms feel cold. I don't have an explanation but feel anyone purchasing this item should be aware.
I would recommend this product.

I live in Chicago, and this year the weather has been extremely brutal. I order this coat with the expectation from the reviews to be toasty warm. While I would not say toasty warm, it did deliver on the other points. One, it does resist wind and rain/snow. Two, the Omni heat part keeps you warm while active in the coat, but if you are standing on a platform outside waiting for a train this feature does not work as well. Three, the extended zip up neck is fantastic in keeping you warm, no need for a scarf.
The coat is very fashionable, and not bulky like other winter coats. My only warning is that if you want to stay toasty warm make sure to wear wool sweaters underneath.
Lastly, I bought the Mercury plaid and it is much more blue than the picture. Which I really liked!
I would recommend this product.

I would recommend this coat to anyone looking for an everyday coat to wear to work as well as wear out on the town. I first ordered a large, which is what I normally wear in most jackets and coats, and it was way too big. I sent it back and exchanged it for the medium which fits perfectly. I love this coat and have rec'd a lot of compliments.
I would recommend this product.

I've been searching for a flattering-yet-warm winter coat and although this coat is adorable, it does not qualify as a "winter" coat, at least not for Chicago. It's uninsulated and not wind-proof. I may have kept this jacket for spring (it'd be a great transitional jacket), but the soft fabric would be a magnet for pet hair.
All that said, I can't stress how cute this jacket is! And it has all the usual thoughtful design elements from Columbia... inner pockets, removable hood, extra cuffs and placket to keep you warm. Just not quite warm enough. :)
I would recommend this product.

I bought this coat for my daughter who walks to school; about four blocks from the house. She received her coat in November 2013 and has worn it daily. Since Christmas it has snowed at lease twice a week and we've experienced a polar vortex. My daughter says the Omni Heat keep her very warm. This coat is waterproof so she stays dry. Its worth it!
I would recommend this product.

It has been an exceptionally cold and windy winter, but so much more comfortable with this coat. I love that it has cuffs in the sleeves and an interior zipper to help keep the cold wind at bay. The length is perfect. It is a bit big on me, but I wanted to be sure I had room for layers. I'm a size 4 and the small felt a little roomy. I really wanted this coat in the Sea Salt color, but could never find it available in my size. So, I ordered the Mercury Plaid and didn't like. I sent it back and ordered the black plaid instead, and like it much better. The best thing about this coat (besides warmth) is that it's not bulky. Functional and looks great, too.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a jacket for both work and casual wear. This one fit the bill. Like the weight of the jacket and length. I also appreciate the cuffs on the sleeves-wind cannot blow up them. Only negative comment is that the jacket is a bit boxy and big toward the bottom.
I would recommend this product.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Zenith Vista Trench II in Sea Salt Plaid color, size M (I am 5'4"). I wore it to London and Paris in Dec for 10 days at temperature between 50 and 38 F. It was perfect for the ever changing wet weather in there; it kept me warm and dry while looking stylish. Inside, I only have to wear a long sleeve shirt, scarf and a pair of Columbia's Trail Summit™ Running Glove (with touch screen compatibility). The coat is good at colder temperature when I am back in USA, just need to add warm layer inside. The thermal reflective lining works like a charm!
I would recommend this product.

Purchased the Vista Trench in advance of incredibly cold weather for daughter in Savannah, Ga.
She loves the Vista Trench... great length and weight not too too bulky and enough room for sweater underneath.
More stylish than typical Columbia coat, is dressier than other Columbia coats and should appeal to many more customers.
I would recommend this product.

I couldn't decide between a wool pea coat and a technical coat, so luckily I found this! I needed something I could wear every day, but especially professionally.
I wore this recently in 20 degree weather in Cleveland and it kept me really warm and blocked the wind well.
I am 5'8" and 135 lbs and it's a little roomy, but not too big. It has plenty of room for layering.
The only problem I have found so far is it collects dog hair really quickly, but so does a wool coat, so I was expecting that somehow anyway.
This also fits really nicely with the belt and looks great. My husband likes the look too and he was pretty adamant about getting wool :)
I would recommend this product.

I was surprised at how heavy this coat was. I am always cold, and this coat blocks the wind and keeps me perfectly warm. I liked that the zipper under the storm flap only came to my waist while the trench actually goes to my knees; this allows for better movement when walking, yet the coat doesn't let in too much of the cold air.
Also loved the inside media pocket with the slit for headphones. It fits true to size, too. I'm very pleased with this trench.
I would recommend this product.

I love the look of this jacket but I have broad shoulders and the medium was too small across my shoulders yet fit everywhere else. Unfortunately, I had to return it and I am sure the large will be too big overall. It feels like it would be warm and I love the neckline.
I would recommend this product.
