Columbia Women’s Mighty Lite™ Hooded Jacket

Beautiful geometric baffling, flattering seam details and a long silhouette lend a feminine feeling to this hooded jacket while the Omni-Heat thermal reflective lining and insulation keep you warm when the wind-chill drops; two-way front zipper facilitates mobility.

I've only had the chance to wear this about 5 times but so far, it's awesome. I was taken aback when I first took it out because it is so thin and so light but there hasn't been a time when I've walked out and felt cold (It's been between 5 and 25°). The cuffs with the thumb holes are so clutch! Perfect to put gloves over because your wrists and arms don't get cold and you don't have to worry about getting snow on you.
About the sizing- I'm a 6/8 and the medium is a little snug. I can fit a sweatshirt under but I don't think I could wear a bunch of layers...but then again you don't need to wear a ton of layers with this.
Got the purple and it's so pretty! There is a very subtle plaid design which I was surprised about but you can't notice it unless you're looking at it up close under light/it's more the weave of the fabric than it is a print.
I would recommend this product.

The jacket is nice, lite and comfortable but not very warm specially from the waist down, the top part feels warmer because it fits more snug to the body. I would say it's great if the weather doesn't drop below 30.
Size M fits a little roomy but S maybe too snug I am size 6.
I would of love this jacket if they used more insulation material.
I would recommend this product.

This coat was not made for women. I have hips, because I'm a woman, and despite the reviews saying that it will fit tighter around the hips and baggier up top I wanted to try this coat because of the amazing reviews on it's warmth. I'm a pants size 8/10, and originally ordered a large because the reviews said it ran small (mediums are my typical), but it was giant on me, like a sleeping bag. Returned it and got a medium, and I could barely zip it over my thighs. I was shocked that a company like Columbia would have such discrepancies between their sizes.

I was hesitant to order an XS after having read some reviews about the jacket running small, but I decided to risk it and I could not be more happy. I am 5'2" and 105 lbs. The XS is a prefect fit with room for a thick layer underneath if needed. A S would have been baggie and sloppy looking. The contoured shape of the jacket is very flattering and I LOVE the thumb hole at the bottom of the sleeves. Great product!
I would recommend this product.

I have never written a review for an item, but I love this coat so much I knew I needed to. It is so lightweight, but SO SO warm. I never feel the wind blow through it. I love the thumb holes on my hands because it easily creates a seal when I put gloves on. I am a student at UW-Madison and live a 25 minute walk from all my classes and this coat does its job and then some! I will stick with the omni-heat technology the rest of my life!
(I only docked the quality a little bit because there are little strings sticking out from the stitching in certain places.)
I would recommend this product.

I was! My other puffy coat made me look like a marshmallow and ended up feathering all over my sweaters. This jacket solved both of those problems...and it was warm enough to get me through the Polar Vortex in New England.
I ordered it in Quill and get compliments on the color all the time! It is nice to wear a shade a little outside of the winter color box.
My only complaint is that the hood does not have a cord to tighten it and keep it in place, thus a hat is often a necessity. But overall, this was an excellent, warm, super-cute, flattering purchase and now all of my co-workers want to order one!
I would recommend this product.

This jacket was warm, despite being thin! But the quality was bad. Some of the insulation started coming out within 2 days of light use. And the hood just didn't work for me. It was too lose, and kept falling off.
Overall, I'm disappointed with the quality, and I'm looking for a different jacket (better built) with the omni-heat technology.

I really haven't seen a Columbia product that isn't excellent! This one is very light weight, soft comfy and a pleasure to wear. Kind of like that coming home after a long day at work, and putting on your joggers and sweatshirt feeling! I purchased a size larger than I normally wear, so I could put a few layers under when the weather gets colder. The only thing that would make it even better, would be another zipper pocket on the inside. One on each side would really be great. One for the cash and credit cards and one for the cell phone! Perhaps some day there will be one like it, with out the outer shell quilted. Something just as light, soft and comfy, with a more elite outer shell and detachable hood. ;)
I would recommend this product.

I bought this coat for my daughter who wears a size 6 and it is too small. We have to return it. She is currently wearing another well known brand in a size small, which fits fine. Other reviews said this runs small so we ordered the medium. It looks nice and is amazingly lightweight so we are disappointed.

I'm amazed at how warm this jacket is. I was surprised and confused when I opened the box on the lack of bulk. Walking around in a winter wonderland is no problem in this jacket, I stayed warm without layers underneath.

It's definitely comfortable and well-constructed, but it can't stand up to Chicago winters without a second layer of outerwear.

This coat is everything I wanted it to be. It is very light weight yet also very warm and cozy. I love it. I did order a size larger than I would ordinarily order, because I had been told that it ran small. I usually wear a size M or L in a coat, but I ordered an EXL and I'm happy that I did. Fits great and looks good, too.
I would recommend this product.

you would not think this is a warm jacket from how thin and light it is. Surprisingly keeps all your warmth inside with the omni-heat technology. i'm confident i can use this as my winter coat, but with a scarf because the neck area seems a bit loose.
I would recommend this product.

I live in Chicago, IL and well so far the weather has been OK- I would like to say the Jacket is pretty good, I love the way it fits and keeps me warm. I was a little skeptical at first, but now that the temperature has dropped a little more I have been able to put it through the real test.
I love how I can still wear a sweater underneath if I have to and not feel tight. It is true to size, I bought a Medium, and it fits great, I love the length of the jacket!!! and the total plus is the fact that it is so light!!
I love it!!!!!
