I bought this for my daughter. It is perfect for her. It's thin, yet extremely warm. She loves it! The color is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a warm, comfy jacket that isn't bulky at all.

I just moved to snowy utah, and this jacket is perfect! It is so light weight and so warm! It's a little bit big on me, but perfect for wearing sweatshirts underneath, however, it's warm enough without another layer.

I ordered this jacket offline and I LOVE it! The green was a little brighter than I thought based on the picture, but it is sweet. It fits great, the hood is awesome and the zip in front comes up high so you can bury your face in if it is really cold. I don't have any complaints about this jacket, very happy with it! (Which says a lot since it is my third down jacket-the first two weren't quite right!)
I would recommend this product.

Your 3rd "Down" jacket? The Shimmer Me isn't a down jacket. Is this review for the right item??

I usually don't wear short jackets because I don't like it when my legs are cold, but I love the warmth of this jacket. I wore it today, a very windy and cold day in NY. I was sooo warm! The wind couldn't penetrate and the omni-heat lining really did keep my body heat in, almost to the point of making me sweat. I'm sure that I will get a lot of wear out of it this winter. It's my weekender jacket.
I would recommend this product.

I am extremely happy with my Shimmer Me. Wonderful product. I love how the jacket fits and I especially love the cuffs with the thumb hole for warmth. You've thought of everything. Columbia is my chose for winter wear. Good job.

I am always cold, but hate to wear bulky coats. This coat is so lightweight and warm! I love it! It is a lot warmer than I thought it would be. The pockets are nice and large and the sleeves are roomy enough to wear something a little thicker underneath the coat and still have room to move around. Wouldn't change a thing!
I would recommend this product.

I just got this jacket last week, and wear it all the time. The fact that it keeps me so warm is the huge bonus as I'm often times cold.
The best thing I have to say about this is that it works everywhere! I was heading to the mountain to ski yesterday and halfway there I realized that I had forgotten my ski jacket at home. This was the only jacket I had so thought I'd give it a chance. I was able to ski all day long - kept me as warm as my ski jacket does, and was easy to maneuver in as well.
This jacket is now my favorite!
I would recommend this product.

I'm petite (5'4", 105lbs), and sometimes it's hard to find a puffy jacket that looks right on me. They usually look HUGE and shapeless. I decided to take a chance on the Shimmer Me in black., I bought it online without seeing it in person. I am so glad that I did, as right now there is a serious cold snap in my area (The highs have been below 50), and none of my coats are keeping me warm. This jacket is perfect. It's a puffy jacket without the puffyness! The arm length is just right. There's plenty of room for me to wear a long sleeved shirt underneath or a sweater. There's really no need to because the jacket keeps me sooooooo warm. The thumb holes are great. It's the perfect length. Often times with other xs coats I've tried on, I notice that the length can sometimes be too short, while the rest of the jacket fits fine. This just touches the top of my thighs. Also, it seems like it's fitted, because I can still see the curve of my waist...another big issue I have with puffy jackets is that they have no shape. Shimmer me is so light you wouldn't think it would keep you soooooo warm, but it totally does. I don't even want to take it off after I get home. :) I'm glad I went with the black, but I think I want the graphite one too (I read that it's actually more of a green color!). If you're reading this, you must be trying to decide if you want it, just go ahead buy it. You know you want to, it's worth the $.
I would recommend this product.

I love this jacket! I love that it is not a puffy jacket with all of the warmth! I have worn it for about a month now in 30 degree temps and is still warm. I think that any lower and you would either need to layer more or wear a coat for colder weather. The pockets are lined which makes your hands warm quickly. The fit is just right. Roomy enough for a sweater underneath but not so bulky it looks too large. I also love the thumbholes. Wind does not get in ; ) Also, the color black is a true black.
I do not recommend this product.

Runs small. It's a lot thinner than it appears on this website. But it's also warmer than you'd expect. However, I would not call this a "Winter" jacket by any means.

Love this jacket. It is lightweight but warm. There is really no bulk. It is easy to move around in and you can get a seatbelt withouth feeling like you are trapped.
I am sure I will get many years of use out of it.

I love my new jacket! Its super warm, fits perfectly and has everything one could ever need to keep warm. The hood fits perfectly, it has a pocket for your cell phone, cool wholes for your thumbs and the interior reflective lining keeps me super toasty. Also, the two front pockets are lined with a super warm fleece. Love this !!!
