This jacket seems well designed and has all the Columbia technology for a great outdoor experience. BUT, It felt as if it was designed for someone with a really BIG body - like a big pot belly. The arms and mid-section of the coat are just huge. I sent it back for a refund.
I do not recommend this product.

This was the first type of winter jacket I've owned in a long time and have been very impressed so far. Keeps warm while outside (mostly from blocking the wind) and fits well.
The fabric in the arms is soft but when wearing long sleeves it makes taking the jacket off a test of patience or the work of two people. This is a MINOR inconvenience compared to the GOOD quality and AMAZING functionality.
Would recommend highly.

This is an awesome jacket. It is very comfortable and warm. It is literally -12 degrees today with wind, the jacket was perfect. It also feels comfortable when the temp is in the 40's. I am a bigger guy and the strech material works great when getting in and out of the car. I don't even feel that I have a coat on most of the time. This is a very high quality jacket. It looks sharp and can be worn for any situation.
Highly recommend!

My Husband "loves" his new jacket as he states continually. He has gotten many compliments on "wow, that's a really nice coat!"
The comfort and fit is excellent. He was concerned when he first put it on and then was happy to find how easy it was to adjust it to a custom fit. Thanks for making this upcoming season so warm and comfy!

It's light, warm, durable, practical with lots of pockets, and it looks good. I have short arms, so the sleeves are a little long, but that's remedied by the adjustable wrist straps. I took this coat with me to the Amazon rain forest in Brazil, and it kept me warm and dry.
