Liked the look of the jacket but was most interested in testing the Omni-Heat technology 'cause I can be a cold, cold girl.
Wore to a windy, rainy tailgate party and got to roam wherever I wanted while everyone else huddled under the canopies near the propane heaters. Lots of compliments on the cute baffle styling. Layered over a t-shirt and medium weight sweater, nice fit.
Have also worn to stay warm on the sidelines at a cold windy night ultimate frisbee game (winner!) and when having to take a reluctant-to-do-her-business-when-it's-cold-and-rainy dog for her evening relief ... Zip this baby up and have no fear!
A little worried about how the cream color will hold up through use, but not worried about staying warm as I put this one through her paces!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this after my trusty, always warm, previous coat broke. I am very picky about what I wear in the cold, and after much research finally decided on this. The other reviews are exactly correct when they say that this coat runs small. I was an XS in my previous coat and a M in this one. It is a little roomy on me, but just enough for layering. As for warmth, it is warm! I wore it during this "polar vortex" weather. The wind whipped, and my face and legs were freezing but my midsection and arms were toasty. It's surprising how warm this jacket is because it is so lightweight. The pockets are also deep and fleecy, and kept my hands warm too. The hood is nice and deep which was great because I was able to put it up over a hoodie hood and my thick winter hat. As for style it is feminine and slightly fitted but with a sporty flair. The bottom band is snug enough to keep the frosty air out, but isn't terribly tight. Lastly, the cuffs are awesome. They're also snug, and go all the way past the wrists into the arms of the coat. No drafts up my sleeves! Overall great coat.
I would recommend this product.

Since we are going through yet another Polar Vortex, your review has convinced me that this coat is the one for me! I have just been wearing two layers of fleece and it isn't enough! Thanks!

This is overall just a really great coat! It was a bit larger than I initially expected it to be, but it works out because it gave me room to layer underneath if I had to. Perfect by itself when temps are in the mid to upper 20s but colder than that I found that an extra layer really does help. When you put the coat on, the inside black cloth cuff part of the sleeve (don't know how else to explain it) does tend to stick out, but that's easily fixed by pulling the outer material back over it. Despite those two minor issues, I really do love this coat. Haven't tried it in a serious outdoor setting, but for everyday general wear, it's great!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this coat hoping that it would be warmer then my current winter coat, which it is not. It is alright as long as the temperature is above 30 degrees. It does not block the wind very well. It is very light weight and comfortable. I do love the color too.
As the other reviews state the coat runs small so I did order a size larger then I normally wear.
Overall if you want a coat for milder weather this is a great coat.
I would recommend this product.

I went to Denver for a training course so I needed a jacket for temperature under zero and
Enter the Columbia’s web and selected a jacket with special condicion and I bought by internet and I sent it to the hotel. The shipment and transaction was very easy, fast and the product is high quality.
Thanks

I am a northern gal so I found the coat works for me and I love it that it is a good car/store coat. I don't overheat in it while I shop for groceries. It stop the wind very nicely.
I would not recommend the coat if the woman is always cold. The person would not able to generate enough heat to warm up the coat inside.
So far I tested the coat in 10F temperatures with -5F windchill. I think I would need a warmer coat if I had to be outdoors for longer period of time if it was colder than 15F. I got my money worth.
The coat does run small. I glad I ordered the XLg.
I would recommend this product.

I received this jacket as a birthday gift and based on reviews went up a size. I normally wear a medium but went up to a large. The large fit me perfectly everywhere but the arms. They are really, really long. So I do need to get them tailored and while I am at it I am getting rid of the cuffs at the sleeves. Totally don't need it the knit material at the cuff. The same material is on the bottom of the jacket as well, but it doesn't bother me there. I got the black and it is a true black which I love!! Not the washed out black that sometimes gets advertised as black.
I know living in California I'll use this a bit rarely, but I like that i have a lightweight but WARM coat that I am squish into my suitcase if I am travelling to a cold destination.
Its a must have!
I would recommend this product.

I got this for Northern Nevada, where the winters can be long, cold, and windy, for me to wear during the middle months of my pregnancy. I don't do a lot of layering, and I am comfortable in this jacket with no layering down to about the 20's. I'm happy with the construction quality, and haven't had anything to complain about. I like how the sleeve cuffs stick out a bit, so they don't ride up my arms while moving around. The hem length is comfortable, even if I would prefer it to be just a tad longer. Overall a very nice jacket.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this jacket for my daughter. She normally wears a small in everything but orderd a medium since she may have bulky sweatshirts/sweaters underneath the coat. The medium was very, very tight, no room at all to even move around. I am now waiting for the large size to come in the mail, hopfully that size works for her otherwise will just give up on this style.
I would recommend this product.

I live in a Midwest college town that requires me to trek up and down icy hills with winds whipping my face the whole way to get to classes during the winter. Temps are usually between 18-40 from November-January. This coat, so far, has seriously impressed me with its ability to keep me warm. It's so lightweight for its function. The elastic cuffs and band around the bottom keep all my heat in and don't let me feel the slightest bit of wind. Omni-heat is amazing. And it's flattering! I got the white - goes with any color boots, scarves, or hats.
I love this coat.
If I had to make one update, I wish it had an elastic drawstring around the hood. Personal preference.
I would recommend this product.

Love this jacket! Keeps you nice and warm and resistant from wind. The jacket is very light and does run a bit small. I am a small, but so glad i read reviews and bought the Medium. Wouldn't be able to wear a big bulky sweater underneath, but you won't need it with this coat!
