I bought this jacket for my boyfriend who can't seem to not stop wearing the jacket everyday. He has told everyone how much he loves it and loves how light weight it is.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the jacket for my husband. He loves it. He continues to comment on how functional and comfortable it feels when wearing it. He says he can wear it while driving, that's a big plus for him.
I would recommend this product.

Ordered the medium based on the fit chart. Should have paid more attention to reviews about the jacket running small/tight. Was able to return the jacket to a Columbia outlet with no problems. Need to replace with a large but at $240 it is simply not a good value. Jacket bunches up leaving a depression in the center of the chest in the sitting position. Sleeve cuffs are very thin. Was disappointed in how warm the jacket felt on a 30 degree night. Only worn once so not sure about true comfort levels. Other than the sleeves the quality and look of the jacket was as expected.
I do not recommend this product.

Thought it would be much bulkier. Only good for temps down to 30 degrees. Below that you need several layers.
For the money, it was not worth it. So I can't recommend it.
I expected this to be much warmer.
It is well made & has great pockets, it is just not a real cold weather coat.
I do not recommend this product.

I have not had it in the cold yet. But it is warm fits good love the color and the pockets. I got this for a heavy down to go over other lighter thinner downs when I'm in real cold weather. It's going to work great.
I would recommend this product.

Great product! comes with a pack-sack that I will be using next camping trip. I'm in SD and we have been getting some ice storms. I keeps me warm and the wind has not been an issue at all, this coat has blocking it. Lately the temps have been a low of 20 degrees F and the wind has been 20 to 25 miles per hour. I have had a t-shirt on with this coat during these conditions without problems at all. Would like for it to get colder and have higher wind speeds so I can see what this coat can really do!
It is true to size for the active fit on me with a size large. I'm 6'0" 186 lbs Mesomorph build.
I would recommend this product.

I love the warm and comfort. The only thing I would change is that it is that I have a large upper body so the XL is tight in the chest, back and shoulders. I love the thermal lining and down filling. I've been out in very cold conditions with just the coat, with a sweatshirt under it or a fleece under it and all have been very comfortable
I would recommend this product.

I can't imagine a jacket being lighter then this and still as warm. It's perfect for hikes in the cold because it breathes well and is extremely light. Looks great too, I like the Sanguine color. I haven't warn it in rain yet and it seems like you want to avoid having it in heavy rain. But that's true of any jacket that breaths this well. It's expensive but if it last 5 years, it's very much worth the price.
I would recommend this product.

Great jacket for straight up warmth. Add a shell and you're good to go! First foray out was -25 windchill in beautiful Wisconsin, worked great. Inside pocket would be an added bonus.

I purchased this coat just before Christmas for my hiking to Kilimanjaro. Right after Christmas, Northern California was hit by a serious cold wave. It may be the Omni Heat technology or the construction, I stayed very warm and comfortable in this coat. It worked very well in the cold temperatures!!!! I wear it every day since I purchased it!!!!!
I would recommend this product.

After trying several brands, I finally found a light-weight, warm winter jacket. This model blends function and style. I opted for an all-Black version -- it looks nice enough to wear to work or out but is warm enough to wear on the coldest days.
Although warm, this jacket probably would not be sufficient for skiing Ski Cooper's Chicago Ridge or in heavy, sustained winds. But for a commuter who lives, works and plays in a cold climate, this jacket is excellent.
Fit is snug but slimming. Comfortable to wear, even while seated.
I would recommend this product.

Although it is a very well made High Quality Product , the XXL was not true to size and did not fit my husband .
I actually sent it back just yesterday 1/2/13 . The good news is my husband was able to find another Columbia jacket that fit correctly at Columbia Outlet in Tinton Falls, NJ . That is how much we like your products.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the mens Hellfire Jacket for my boyfriend for Christmas. Since he doesn't really like wearing coats, I wasn't sure if he would like it. Well....he loves it and has been wearing it everyday!
It's a great looking jacket, and made very well!!!

I returned this jacket immediately upon opening the box. The fabric was chintzy, the down thin and when I held it up tp the light I could see right through it. A Spring/Fall jacket with a deep winter price.
I do not recommend this product.

This jacket keeps me warm without making me sweat. Very breathable.
Only complant is that the seams are not sown as one would expect. Otherwise, good quality.

Quality product. It has not been cold enough yet this fall to wear this jacket. I have put it on a few times and due to its ability to retain heat, was not able to keep it on for long. Im looking forward to a cold winter! The quality is great. It is lightweight and the chest pockets make it very functional. Im very happy with this coat. Omni-heat.... what a great idea!
I would recommend this product.
