Columbia Men’s Shimmer Me™ III Jacket

Versatile, warm and protective, this ultra-lightweight and insulated jacket weighs in at an airy 18.3 ounces. Clean, streamlined design lines give the Shimmer Me everyday cred while the thermal reflective lining and Omni-Shield repellency effectively manage cold conditions and inclement weather. The Deep Woods and Buffalo colorways are available in a beautiful and supple matte melange fabric.

This is a great coat. We live in the where temps run single digits and this jacket does the job. Not bulky either which is amazing.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for my 15 year old nephew and he is very pleased with the quality, fit and color. He was surprised to find the wind proof sleeve.
Teens can be very selective when it comes to clothing, however this jacket hit a home run!
Thanks for the great quality,
A happy Aunt

The only thing I saw that was "missing" was the bottom edge was straight, not elastic for a snugger fit.
I got it for my husband, was going to wait until his birthday in September, but with our ice/snow days I gave it to him this past week.
He loves it!

Received my Shimmer Me III jacket as a replacement for the original fleece Interchange Liner in my Bugaboo coat. It is light, warm, well fitting and really enjoy the Omni-Heat interior. My arms slip into the sleeves very smoothly, which is a treat and you hardly realize you are wearing it. The Bugaboo, which I love, becomes even more versatile. Of course you can wear the Shimmer Me III liner as an independent, light weight, but warm jacket.
This is a great product!!
I would recommend this product.

Even the Polar Vortex was no match for this under my shell (Jet Stratus), even on the coldest and windiest days. It's a keeper, I'll get another next year if I can't find one at an outlet before then.

I purchased this jacket for my 13yr son, huge success! He rarely takes it off, looks good on him and will be great for the Northwest's camping/hiking weather.

Really like this jacket. It is warm without the bulk and looks good on. Works well on it"s own in fairly cold weather and works well under a shell in really cold weather as in Columbia's interchange system.

I owned a full winter coat from Columbia (inner and outer layer). Somehow I managed to lose the inner layer, but with the outer layer remained I purchased just this inner layer again. IT'S BACK TO THE GOOD LIFE. Winter turns to Summer the moment that jacket hits my skin.
My ONLY complaint is that it's really shiny. I tend to keep it zipped and secret. I don't want to resemble a disco ball.
I would recommend this product.

This is merely a fleece. I was looking for a single layered jacket with THICK INSULATION to suit the New England winter. But this is just a total waste of the money we pay. I'd rather wear a normal branded fleece than pay this amount for a fleece that just has a fancy name and build that doesn't suit even the florida winters.
I do not recommend this product.

What?
Posted February 6, 2014
Couldn't disagree more. While it is clearly a light weight liner if in the elements for a long time, but very useful if you are out in the weather for a short time in very cold weather.

You're not talking about this jacket
Posted December 16, 2013
I admit, a lot of Columbia fleece's are pretty basic, on par with your run of the mill St. John's bay fleeces from JcPenny, however there is no fleece in, on, or around this jacket whatsoever.
You must be talking about a different jacket as I own this one, it's a polyester shell, and omni-heat inner shell, with a thin layer of down like material in between.
I regularly wear this jacket on walks in -20 to 0 degree days in northern Wisconsin, and have yet to get a chill or feel the wind in this jacket. I'm super surprised by the wind breaking abilities of this jacket since that's not it's main purpose. Also, it is very breathable, I can wear this when transitioning from 65-70 indoors shopping, keeping it on for an hour, and never coming close to over heating.

Don't let the light weight of this jacket fool you. Although temps in the northeast are not cold yet, I wore this jacket when it was in the low 20s at night, and it was certainly warm and toasty. I also like the fact the jacket does not restrict movement in any way like some of the heavier jackets I have worn in the past. 5 stars on this one.
I would recommend this product.

This is a surprisingly warm jacket for how thin it is. I have a huge poofy one that is no warmer, but makes me look like a navy blue version of the staypuff marshmallow man. This one is much sleeker and looks way better on. Columbia's customer service was awesome with the exchange I had to make for a smaller size (my ordering error, not theirs.) This is my go-to jacket on the coldest day of the year when I take the dog out for as long a walk as he can tolerate.
I would recommend this product.
