Customer reviews for Columbia Men’s Zonafied™ Softshell Jacket

Columbia Men’s Zonafied™ Softshell Jacket

The Zonafied windproof softshell puts extra warmth everywhere you need it and nowhere you don’t. The insulation in the front and back panels keeps your core warm but we’ve kept it out of the sleeves so they are low-profile and bulk-free for better mobility. Stretch construction makes this softshell super comfortable while the Omni-Shield repellency, attached hood, drop tail and advanced wind-blocking technology ensure that you stay protected in inclement weather.

My son is very picky about coats. They can't be heavy or bulky but I was always afraid he would get cold, and he would get cold. Moms, if your son only wants to wear a hoody try this jacket. My son really likes and does wear it. I am very happy with the way it looks and the quality. He wears it. Most important thing.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket thinking it was more of a light weight layer. It is much warmer than I thought it would be and I am pleasantly surprised. The omni heat layer is great!
I would recommend this product.

Very nice quality. I think it runs just a bit smaller than most sizes.

The jackets just fit weird. The sleeve length doesn't change for any of the sizes. So they are short on some people and long on others. The sleeves don't have any insulation which feels weird because the rest of the coat does. The pockets are really high, which we be alright except that they are so deep. It's great for storing things, but it cuts at your wrist when you put your hands in them. The drop tail is a significant cut and it felt like the jacket was not centered on your body. The overall quality seemed good though. The most ineffective part of the jacket was the underarm zip vents. The jacket is too thin to have this option. When you don't have significant clothing underneath you can feel the zipper and it is very uncomfortable.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought this jacket to wear it on a daily basis during winter. When I received it I thought about returning it because I thought it was too thin. Then I decided to give it a try, and I absolutely love it because it keeps me really warm weather I'm biking or walking. The only complaint would be that there is no omni-heat reflective protection on the sleeves whatsoever and they are really thin. But this can be easily solved by wearing a long sleeve shirt or sweater below it. Overall, it is a good, comfortable jacket that I wear everyday.
I would recommend this product.

I expected it to be much warmer. If there is a slight breeze the sleeves are only slightly better than having bare arms.
I do not recommend this product.

The 'fit and finish' of this coat is top notch. It keeps my very warm and is very comfortable. I do have a problem with the end of the sleeves, though. They taper off, which I'm assuming has it's function if you're in extreme cold and wearing big, bulky gloves. For normal wear though, it's pretty uncomfortable and if you're wearing a long sleeve shirt under your coat, you can see your shirt sticking out through the sleeve.
I would recommend this product.
