I ordered this jacket just before the rainy season really kicked in where I live and I could not be happier with the purchase. This jacket has proven to be worth even more than I paid for it in my opinion. The soft lining runs all the way down the inside of the sleeve and the outer material keeps me completely dry even in the worst storms. It fits close to my body without being suffocating and I have the freedom to move freely without feeling restricted or too hot. I would by this jacket over and over again if I had to.
I would recommend this product.

I really love this coat. I bought this to replace a North Face and ended up liking this jacket more. It's extremely warm and not too bulky. I really like that the coat is lined through the sleeves. The only con is that it does run a little small. The XL fits me the way a L usually does, except the sleeves are too long. Overall though, I'd recommend this.
I would recommend this product.

I really like this jacket!! xs fit perfectly (5'4 & 116 lbs)... though it is a little shorter in the front, it's not bad or noticeable at all. It's super warm & soft. I've gotten a lot of compliments & people asking where I got it, too. Really like this jacket.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for the rainy months in Oregon last fall and was able to use it for the winter months in Louisiana. This jacket is amazing! Super comfortable to wear, non-bulky, easy to drive or do anything with it on, and super easy to clean. As for sizing: mine fits perfectly. I even checked the sizing chart and the measurements were on the dot for my size.
My only problem with it is that my draw-cord for my hood broke on the left side on its second use. Other than that, this is the perfect jacket for any cool or rainy weather!!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket just in time, the past few weeks weather has been below 30 degrees all the time. I love throwing a layer or two underneath the jacket and I am warm and ready to go. I haven't spent a long period of time out in it yet, but am sure it will hold up pretty well. Definitely worth the price!!
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this in xsmall. I am 5'4" and 112 pounds. The fit is perfect. This jacket is ideal for windy, cooler days. I use it all the time during the winter months in Mexico City where the temperature hits around 40 in the evenings and mornings. However, there is enough room for layering, so I was also able to use it in colder weather (in the 30s). The fleece lining is a great detail. I ordered it in the hibiscus red. The color is vibrant, orangey, slightly pinkish. Think of a red hibiscus flower.
I would recommend this product.

Most jackets when they say fleeced lined, only the body is fleece lined. THIS jacket the fleece lining continues down the arms for full body warmth. The other plus is that its water proof. You can stay warm and dry on a chilly rainy day. I haven't tested it out n freezing temperatures, but its been great on the colder (mid 30's) days. The cut of the jacket hits right at the hips and covers my bottom. Its also slimming not bulky! Excellent jacket!!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this coat to replace a NF and I have to say, I wish I had gone with Columbia in the first place! I love the fact that this jacket has a hood. I also like the adjustable sleeves. This helps when wearing bulkier sweatshirts underneath. A small fits well (I'm 5'1) with plenty of room for hoodies underneath, while not being bulky without. Very warm and wind resistant as well. I'm just hoping the white stays white!
I would recommend this product.

This jacket has kept me warm, dry, and stylish. It fits perfectly (5'7, 130lbs, got a small) and I have used it every day since I got it. I have hiked, gone to work, and even ran in it during a cold snap. I absolutely love this jacket!

I recieced the jacket right on time with shipping. I'm 5'7 and a size 6, The fit was very true to size (medium). It keeps me warm but it isn't too warm. I go to college in Mississippi but i'm from Illinois so I needed a functional jacket for both climates. It has a hard shell outside but its fury on the inside. Love the jacket!!
I would recommend this product.

I really like the fabric, warmth and fit of this coat. I have worn it in temps (so far) of about 50F with little physical activity and while others around me were feeling the chill, I was not. I also really like the fleece lined interior.
I would recommend this product.

Nice tailored styling but not too slim fittting. The weight is perfect for chilly to cold evenings/fall weather. The outside finish protects against wind and rain. Nice lined hood is adjustable. Big inside pockets! Zippered outside. Just a perfect all around jacket. Worth every penny.
I would recommend this product.
