I bought the longer version of this jacket 2 years ago up in NC and it's been my go to coat for everything! It's so light and well insulated which is such a great function duo and I love the fact that the sleeves are more closed so air doesn't blow up the sleeves keeping you warmer. I would recommend this jacket/coat for anyone anywhere because it is that versatile ;) The price in the long run is worth it :)
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket to replace a long sleeve but lightweight jacket I had been wearing to and from the gym because it just wasn't keeping me warm enough in the winter. I wanted something that wasn't bulky and that was small/thin enough to fit in the small cubby/locker but still kept me warm. After much research I purchased this one and am very satisfied w it. It's stylish and form-fitting but also warm. Best of both worlds! I live in Missouri where the weather can be 60 degrees one day and then "feeling like" -25 the next. This works for either because it doesn't make me too hot when it's warmer. I had a coat w cuffs previously and although these are different w thumb holes and want to pull back through the jacket when I take it off, it's not a deal breaker. I'm also 5'7" and about 150 lbs and thought a medium worked well. I went by the size chart.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a winter jacket that allowed me movement and no bulk, especially while driving. This jacket does just that! I also love that it fits really well over my bustier chest which is always a huge factor when buying a jacket online! The only con I have with the jacket is I am a short girl and I have a really short torso so the jacket is a little snug at my hips but not enough to not be able to wear it. Overall I am very happy with it.
I would recommend this product.

Based on how thin/light weight this jacket is, I was afraid it would not keep me warm enough at 30-40 degrees. However, it's been a great find and has kept me comfortable even at a breezy 29 degrees with just a long-sleeve t-shirt underneath and a hat on. I've noticed I sometimes feel a bit "cool" but never cold. This seems to be because the jacket doesn't have a lot of fluff - like down - to hold in warmth. The heat of your body is just reflected back to you from the lining. I've come to trust the jacket and love the fact that it packs into a tiny space in my backpack. I can fit into a Small, but chose a Medium to allow for a fleece pullover underneath, just in case. It breathes well, looks sharp, and the sleeves and neck provide good coverage. Highly recommended.
I would recommend this product.

Based on reviews, I ordered an extra large instead of my usual large. I am tall (6') with very long arms, and this jacket fits me perfectly in length and arm length. The body is a little loose, but the tapered style keeps it from looking frumpish. My jacket arrived during a cold snap - 10 degrees on average - and it keeps me warm. I absolutely love this jacket. I'm tempted to order in another color, and that's saying a lot because I'm pretty frugal, lol!
I would recommend this product.

I really like this jacket. It's great for those cool days where a hoodie isn't quite enough but you don't want anything too bulky. I would have given this jacket a 5 star rating but I was as bit frustrated with the sleeve length. I'm 5'10 and usually wear a medium. I went up to a large to get more length which I got but still can't comfortably use the thumb holds. The sleeves are long enough but just barely. So if you have longer arms like me and length is as issue place your order accordingly.
I would recommend this product.

It was hard for me to decide to make this a barn jacket because it is so pretty! It is very warm and a nice alternative to the usual heavy bulky Barn clothing. As a recreational rider who doesn't need clothing with quite the durability of the folks who work at the ranch, I decided to take a chance with this and I love it. Went for a very cold ride with friends on Christmas, and I added a heavy vest but my arms were still plenty warm. It also has a thumb hole in the lining which is great with gloves!
I would recommend this product.

This was a Christmas gift for my daughter in law. She loved it! It fit perfectly & the bright color looked great on her. She was so excited to have such a good looking jacket & was excited to go back to work wearing it. I ordered online from Columbia & shipment arrived promptly as stated at time of order.

i got the black color in this coat but before I bought it I read the reviews. I usually wear a large but everyone was saying to get a size larger than what you usually wear because it runs small so I bought an XL. Fits perfect and keeps me warm! I will be purchasing another color in the near future.
I would recommend this product.

I do admit I was intimidated when I got this jacket shipped to me, it was very lite and thin. I thought pretty pricey for a windbreaker. I of course thought might as well give it a shot, see what all the positive reviews were ranting about. This jacket is awesome, it really does keep you warm. I may be cold everywhere else but not my arms and core. The coral glow is very bright but no less beautiful. I love the omni-heat technology, it really works!
I would recommend this product.

I first bought a Mighty Lite III three years ago. The sizing was changed, even though the jacket is still named the same. I ordered an XL, like the jacket I already have but it was smaller. So I looked at the Plus sizes and found that Columbia charges $20 more for 1X plus that is actually sized SMALLER than the XL. And the measurements of Plus are not proportional. The product was changed but NOT IMPROVED. Very disappointed.
I do not recommend this product.

I am so warm in this jacket that I actually wear tank tops under it! I actually can roll my window down for cold fresh air when driving because I'm always very warm! I should have ordered a medium because I'm a small but I love this jacket because it keeps me super warm.

I have this jacket in black and the harbor blue. Just note that the blue is more of a purple-ish/royal blue than what it looks online. Very pretty color. I love how it is so light and easy to move in, yet so WARM. I usually wear an extra-small in clothes, but I got the small so I could wear sweaters under it and because my arms are a little long for my size. It fits great! It's slightly big on me through the waist, but it's cut well enough that it doesn't look boxy. The sleeve length is perfect! I'm fighting the urge to buy this coat in every color!
I would recommend this product.

Very light weight and keeps me warm while I walk the dogs. On colder days, around 40 or so, you can really feel the wind. If this was a wind stopper as well, I would have given it a 5. It also runs a bit tight in the hips but overall, it's a nice fall jacket.
