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 recommend this product.

This coat was great, however, the color was more of a red/orange and I was looking for a true red.

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.

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 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.

This jacket has been a warm, comfortable mid-layer over wool base layer and under shell for cross-country skiing. It also served as mid-layer with heavier clothes for downhill ski on 2 degree day; my core stayed warm even though my toes froze. It has slim fit that works as mid-layer. The size small fit in a store, but the small I ordered was too small!. Medium works but is a little loose. "Light grape" color is a beautiful medium blue-purple.
I would recommend this product.

Great jacket. Super warm. Fits perfect. I'm 5'9, 135. After reading the reviews I ordered a small. The sleeves are plenty long enough and it fits great in the torso. Definitely recommend this jacket.

I ordered this jacket in the blue vapor and the color is just as beautiful in person as in the photo. The jacket is super light and thin but is quite warm. I ended up having to exchange it for a smaller size, as it does run a little large. I normally wear a size 8-10 and usually wear a medium; unfortunately, I looked like a blue marshmallow in the medium but the small fit perfectly. I also ordered the white for my sister-in-law and ended up ordering a smaller size for her too...so my mom kept the first one for herself! Overall, we couldn't be happier (or warmer) with our three jackets. Highly recommend!
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is warm but very comfortable light in weight. The sleeves were just a little short so the thumb holes didn't fit perfectly, but other than that it fits great! Also, it really doesn't get too hot, making it an easy choice for a whole range of temperatures.
I would recommend this product.

Great jacket for it's warmth yet thin enough that it doesn't make you look over sized. The hand extensions replace the need for gloves. The zipper pockets both on the inside and out are a perfect design for keeping things safe. I like this jacket so much that I'm purchasing another. Only complaint is the color selection is not to my taste or accurate and I've returned 2 for black.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a lightweight yet warm puffer style jacket that would not make me look like a marshmallow. This coat delivered everything I wanted. This coat is extremely lightweight and has an attractive slimming cut. The fabric does not get crunchy and I like the very faint plaid detailing on it. The Vapor Blue color I selected feels trendy. I've worn this coat for a couple weeks now and find it to be plenty warm enough for most Vermont winter days. Regarding sizing, I'm 5' 4" and usually wear a 12. The L is roomy enough to wear a sweater but not so roomy as to wish I had sized down. I like the length as well, which for me falls below the hip but I am short waisted. I do agree with reviewers who said that the sleeves are too long. The sleeves measure 23in (armpit to wrist) which is a full 3in too long for me. I roll them up which exposes the gray lining. I don't mind this because it is the same gray lining that shows on the inside of the zipper area when the coat is not fully zipped. I really like how the interior cuffs with the thumb holes keep your wrists covered when your glove and cuff separate. Overall, very happy with this coat.
I would recommend this product.

I really needed a new jacket and wanted something that wasn't as bulky as my old one. This Jacket fit that requirement well. I spend a few hours a day outside with preschool children and wanted something that would still be warm enough though. I have to admit, it isn't quite as warm as my old coat, but it seems to keep me from freezing to death. Love the cut and style of the coat.

I'm very sensitive to the cold and have been caught more than once without suitable clothing for the weather. Example: packing a suitcase for the mountains or coast, when it is 100 degrees at home. There is no room in the suitcase for my heavy winter jacket and besides it is 100 freaking degrees out, who needs a stinking coat. Then I get to where I'm going and freeze my tail off.
That is why I bought this jacket. It is very light and takes up very little room. There is absolutely no excuse not to pack it. So far (it is only October) it has kept me warm in 40-60 degree weather and seems to do a nice job blocking the wind.
The the liner does warm up nicely after wearing the coat for awhile. I'm usually active so don't know how the liner would work sitting on a cold bleacher watching a football game.
I'm very happy with jacket. The color is beautiful and it is incredibly light. I don't expect it to keep me warm once the temperature drops below 40 or possibly even 30. But I don't care, when winter arrives I bring out my heavy duty winter jacket.
I would recommend this product.
