I had to return this jacket. I ordered it in medium and while I loved the fit over my summer clothes I was pretty sure it would not look as good over layered or heavier winter clothes. I put on something that I would typically wear on a cold winter day and sure enough it made it look like I was wearing a coat too small for me. It has a very feminine attractive fit but should be ordered a size larger if you layer clothes or wear big sweaters in the winter. I really did like this coat and will probably reorder in size large. I wish when I had returned it there would have been an option to just exchange it.
I would recommend this product.

This coat is of very poor quality..it is very thin.....and I am 5'7" and a size 6 and the LARGE is too tight....so be careful when you order..I will not be able to fit this over sweaters...I saw other comments that are similar..so I got the L instead of the M and it's fine in regular clothes but not winter clothes.
Also..make sure you measure the length....it is not long enough to keep you legs warm...just FYI
I do not recommend this product.

I've been looking long and hard for an insulated coat that doesn't make me look like the Michelin Man or a puffy marshmallow. This coat really fits those requirements! I ordered the mystery color, which is really a unique color (kind of like a grayish-blue). I've also been searching for a coat with this color to specifically match a scarf that I own. I do agree that if you plan on wearing this coat with thick sweaters, then, you need to order a size up. I'm 5'8'', 140 lbs, 34D, and I ordered both the small and the medium. I wound up keeping the medium, as I tried it on with the thickest sweater that I own and it worked out the best. The medium with a sweater underneath was not tight at all and fully functional. The coat does not cover your legs, but if you look at the measurements of the coat beforehand, that's fairly obvious. I was looking for a coat that was long enough to cover the butt, and this one does. My only slight issue with the coat is the hood. I wish it had a drawstring. I just want it a little tighter around my head. However, I will most likely be wearing a hat with it, so I'm not too concerned about it. It's still in the 40s here in Illinois, so the coat is too warm to wear right now. However, I have read reviews elsewhere of the coat from customers in WI, MN, IL, and MT who say the coat keeps you quite warm in cold weather. I always say that those from colder states have the best judgement on whether a coat is functional for cold weather!
I would recommend this product.

My daughter usually wears a medium with plenty of room to spare--this was way tight. The lightwieght fabric and construction looks flimsy--you can see the outline of what you are wearing through the garmet.

I was very pleased when the coat arrived. It is the perfect length, weight and style. It is lightweight so I don't feel like I'm wearing a down comforter but I keep really warm. I like the added feature of the sleeve with the thumb hole in it because it ensures my sleeves stay inside my gloves. The only downside is that I ordered an XL and it truly is XL when I should actually have a L. Oh well - more room for bulky sweaters underneath.
I would recommend this product.

So far, perfect! Has all the features I wanted in a coat for travel. However, have not tested how WARM it is, since have not been through winter weather with it. But, sure was warm while trying it on! Priced well, too. Mystery funny name for really great color (kind of deep teal).
I would recommend this product.

I love the weight of this coat and look forward to testing it out in extreme conditions of Minnesota. I have been searching for a jacket like this for several years. I wanted something warm that didn't make me look like a marshmellow!
Nice slim fit, I bought the small (I am a size 4 - 6). It fits well and I have plenty of room in the shoulders for a sweater. The hips area is slim....I typically have problems with the fit in the shoulder not the hips...but the zipper can be zipped up from the bottom to accomodate snow pants.
There isn't anything about this jacket that I don't like. Like I said, I am waiting for extreme conditions for my final thoughts on just how much I like it and that is why I rated the function as average for now.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for a replacement for my bulky down coat. I thought this had everything...stylish, thin yet warm and with a hood. The Omni-Heat sounded like something I could really use in Chicago winters. The fit was really tight for a small as well as a medium (I am 5'4", 114#). Going up to a large would throw it all out of proportion. Sorry, Columbia. I really liked the construction, the materials, the potential for Omni-Heat, but if the coat doesn't fit...

This is a very nice looking coat. I was looking for something longer in length and this goes to about mid-thigh for me. Runs a little small, I normally wear a medium, but ordered a large and I am glad I did, wanted room if wearing sweatshirts and sweaters. Hasn't been that cold yet so I can't say if it will keep me warm.
I would recommend this product.

I LOVE this coat. I've been searching for a long coat for a while to help with the winter chill that starts to take over NJ starting in late October. The length is perfect, I love the thumb holes (helps keep the sleeves down and my wrists warm which is always a plus), and overall it's great quality. As a curvy girl who's smallest asset is her waist, I do wish that it had a cinched waist. I didn't purchase any of the other 'cinch waist' coats from Columbia because I have seen them on my friends and you can barely tell they even have the feature - so why spend more money? Besides that - this is well worth it.
I would recommend this product.

A beautiful coat with a great color (Mystery)... one that I was looking forward to wearing for a long time. Within the first week I had to take it to my dry cleaners to have a snag on the front bottom of the coat. Week 3 my sleeve brushed up against a metal corner and snagged. I am not rough with the coat. The outer material is VERY thin. It's fine for warmth, but terrible for durability. Disappointed and wish I had seen it at a store instead of ordering online!
I do not recommend this product.

I am allergic to down and am constantly searching for a warm down-free winter coat that is stylish. I saw the technology advertised with this coat and jumped at the opportunity to try something different. It's extremely lightweight. It does a decent job at keeping me warm, but I haven't tested it in below freezing temps yet. I wish it came in more colors. I also wish I ordered a size smaller. I ordered a Large (I am 5'9" and 147 lbs). I figured I may need to layer underneath, and also read that the armholes were tight. In retrospect, I would have been fine with the medium. The sleeves are pretty long in the Large, even though I'm tall and long-limbed. Too late, already took the tags off. Overall, happy with my purchase. Like I said, wish I ordered a size smaller and wish it came in more colors.
I would recommend this product.
