This jacket is amazing. For how light it is, it is the warmest coat that I have. I love it! I am actually buying a second one!
I would recommend this product.

Love the color, love the fit...nice wrist/hand cover. It hasn't been cold enough to test out the warmth yet. Overall its very light weight, I can move around easy in it and have gotten alot of compliments on it.

I would totally recommend this product to others; in fact, after receiving my jacket two of my family members now want one. The fitting is true to size, and I love the thumb-whole/extra length in the arms/hand area. This extra length and thumb-whole prevents snow from getting inside the sleeves and gets your arms and hands nice and toasty (it's my favorite feature!) It's a pretty warm jacket, although so far this year I haven't gotten to test it out too much. The only complaint I have is that my hair gets static to it due to the type of material (not a lot but just a tad). Other than that, it's a great product with a sleek look that offers many compliments. Enjoy :)
I would recommend this product.

There needs to be a label on each discription saying what the lowest temperature the jacket is good for. The jacket is thin it doesn't even keep me warm at 35 degrees.
You need to update your website to say what kind of weather and temperatures it can withstand.
I do not recommend this product.

I was initially skeptical of the Omni-Heat technology but I was in need of a jacket inbetween a fleece and full-fledged 3 - in - 1 ski jacket. I was suprised at just how warm the jacket was for being so lightweight. The longer I wear the jacket the warmer it becomes. So far I've only worn it in a temperature range of 30-55 degrees. It does run slightly larger than other items I've ordered from Columbia but that allows me to layer if needed. My only complaints are that there's no draw string cord along the bottom of the jacket and I was expecting the collar to be a little stiffer to stand up more on its own when unzipped instead of just falling flat.
I would recommend this product.

So far I'm loving the jacket. It is very "lite" and thin but yet so toasty warm. I bought this for a mountain trip and I've found myself driving with the windows down because I got so warm in it. It can easily be packed in a bag because of how thin the material but don't be fooled by that. It has been great in the wind and a light rain.
My only complaint is that I wish the arms were a little longer. I'm 5'8"- 125lbs and bought a small(a M would have been too big). I do like the thumb holes, which helps to pull the arms down a bit.
Overall I would buy again and would recommend.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for my college daughters last year. They loved the lightweight feeling while they remained warm. I bought one for myself this year. I have loved how it doesn't weigh me down but continues to keep me warm in this constantly changing Iowa weather.

Looks like it should've been a great jacket. I love the idea of the relatively light weight and the reflective lining, but the fit was off (xs too small, s too big) and I thought the cut was weird. Longer in back is ok but it flared out like a duck's tail, and the collar was stiff and tall. The whole thing just didn't work for me.

The Blue Vapor color is gorgeous and the jacket is warm. There has been only one instance where I wasn't warm enough and I am not sure what was going on to make that so. Even with that I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
I would recommend this product.

Thank you Columbia for producing such a perfect jacket. I'm 5 feet 8 inches and weigh 145 with an active/cyclist build. I ordered the blue vapor color in size small and it fits perfectly! I've worn it while biking to work in temps down to 38 degrees (so far), with only a thin long sleeve t-shirt underneath. I do not recommend wearing this with short sleeve shirts as the omni heat material will stick to your skin once your body heat rises.
I have a heavier, hooded version of this jacket from last year and am planning to donate it and purchase another Mighty Lite.
I would recommend this product.

Bought this same coat two years ago in a Large and needed a Medium (I did not shrink any!). Love the coat for a regular winter day and on cold days just throw a fleece underneath and you are good to go. Zippers are good, pockets are good, CUFFS are GREAT (no air up those sleeves). It is a good looking coat on anybody. Accessorize with a scarf and you are good to go. Will buy another color next year!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this coat to replace a well-loved down jacket that was losing feathers. The jacket is extremely light and comfortable over sweaters and fleece. It is fitted, which is flattering, but not so fitted as to restrict my movement. The sleeves have cuffs with holes for the thumbs which prevents cold air from moving up the sleeves. The jacket is not quite as warm as my down jacket, but what it lacks it more than makes up for with style and convenience! I mean, who wants to walk around looking like Donald Duck?
I would recommend this product.

I started working for a company that assembles medical and chemistry supplies and needed a coat that kept me warm as I work in a colder, drafty industrial park (though my job is done all at my desk). My job is non-hazardous, nor do I work with chemicals...so I was shocked when my brand new Columbia jacket already had a tear in it after it's first wash (and yes, I did wash it per instructions on the jacket). I've been a long time Columbia fan and this is the first time I've ever had something like this happen. I live about 2 hours from Seattle - so other than the quality issue, it's true to size (Got a size medium, I'm 5'4, 165lb. female), and it's kept me warm during my rainy, outdoor walks in 35-60 degree weather. Very unimpressed with this quality issue though for the price you pay for Columbia products.
I would recommend this product.

I live in Chicago and this jacket is perfect. I love the new Omni-heat technology. I found that this jacket starts reflecting the heat back almost immediately and keeps me toasting warm. I am also very impressed with lightness and fit of the jacket. I have broad shoulders and most of the coats that I own are very restrictive in this area but not this jacket. I have plenty of room to move and it still fits correctly. One of my better purchases. :-)
I would recommend this product.

I bought this for my daughter, petite 5"2, 120 lbs.. We tried the small but it was too tight. The medium is a perfect fit. She loves the lightweight feel and heat reflective interior. The service was prompt. We will order again from Columbia.

I will be traveling to Ireland and needed a very light jacket that also kept me very warm. This jacket is extremely light, so will fit in luggage and not take up too much space. I've worn it outside on our coldest days(In Texas anyway) and am very pleased with how warm it keeps me at 30 deg and above. Those are the temps I will be dealing w/ in Ireland. I am extremely pleased with the purchase!
I would recommend this product.
