My son is very happy with this coat. He says it keeps him warm, yet is lightweight enough that he doesn't feel weighted down. He loves the free movement he has while wearing it! When I first ordered it he wasn't sure he'd like it, but now that it has arrived and he has tested it he loves it !
I would recommend this product.

I live in Cleveland, OH where we have experienced a series of artic fronts that have dropped the daytime highs into the single digits, and wind chills well below zero for weeks on end. My jacket has been an excellent performer during this harsh weather. It's much lighter than the down coats I've been used to, and the reflective lining keeps me perfectly warm without layers of clothing underneath.
I would recommend this product.

I wasn't sure about this coat at first. I thought that it was too thin to be warm. I wore it to a Thursday night Broncos football game where the temp outside was 30 degrees and we were just standing there watching the game. I was totally comfortable, my hands and feet were freezing, but my chest and body were ok. I would recommend this jack.

This jacket is the most comfortable I have worn until today. It keeps me warm while cold and not sweat much while hot. Very fitting and the hood is a bonus. This is worth a buy!

I rarely write reviews but after searching far and wide for a warm/ not bulky winter coat, I'm happy to report the Shimmer Flash satisfies both needs. Highly recommend this coat, and the value is practically unbeatable.

Although it came with the Omni heat interior, the exterior of the jacket just let the heat out and the cold in.
I do not recommend this product.

This jacket is amazing. Its is super warm, but not too bulky. The outer sheen keeps the jacket from staining. All around a good jacket and I love it.

I bought two - one for my teenage son and the other for my husband. They both love it and can't get over how light it is while still being so warm. Only wished that they had more color choices available in L at the time I ordered.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this coat for my son. He is extremely difficult to shop for and hates wearing winter coats. However, I have finally found a coat that he loves and he wears it all the time. He loves how lightweight it is how soft it feels.
I would recommend this product.

Bought this coat for a very fussy teenager who most times refuses to wear a coat and he loves this one. Says it is so warm. I think he likes it because it's warm without the bulk. It's nice and thin and lightweight yet keeps him warm just the same as a bulkier coat. It's a hit!
I would recommend this product.

Love this jacket! Very warm,great length. The reflective lining really works.
I probably could have sized down one size but I prefer some wiggle room to layer bulky sweaters underneath.
My only question is is where is my 30 dollar egift card? I never received it in any of my mail folders.
I would recommend this product.
