To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Grabbed this coat specifically to travel to cold, wet, and windy Iceland and am glad I did. From cruising on choppy seas in the North Atlantic, to going behind waterfalls, and braving glacier walks, this coat kept me both warm and dry. And having an inner layer that could be worn separately or removed altogether meant never overheating.
I bought this for my husband and it was too big. He is 6'3 about 230 lbs with a long torso. I figured he wears an XL regularly but need talls., so I got an XLT... this jacket was way too big on him. Sleeves were too long and it was very wide. Length was ok though. I figured a Large tall would probably have been better for him. Great jacket though- the detachable fleece liner is a great addition to it.
The liner that Columbia has chosen is of a fleece-like fabric. This does not allow one to slip the coat on. It 'sticks' to any fabric on your long sleeve shirt and so the inside sleeve pushes out with your arm. I used my old liner from a previous Columbia coat and it works great. I guess I will just use the new liner as a sweater or some sorts.
Jacket does not keep you warm. There is no drawstring at bottom of jacket to keep cold air from coming in. The liner is very thin and offers no warmth. The liner at the arms extends out past the outside jacket arms when wearing. I have numerous Columbia jackets and this is the worst I have ever had. In 39 degree air no rain or snow it is like you are only wearing a light jacket with no liner. Poor performance for a jacket.
1. This would be a great jacket except the zipper being a small size limits its strength. It kept coming apart. It's not a 2 way zipper either. If you need more knee room when bending over for work, shoveling snow etc., not possible. 2. Jacket has no inner pocket. 3. Fleece liner jacket has no top (phone) pocket.
Warm jacket. Zip out liner is convenient. However the zippers on the jacket I received are completely useless. As other reviewers items they come apart at bottom, and very difficult to reset. Had to return.
Normally this jacket would get a 5 star rating due to the fact my hubby has owned 2 of these and they were awesome. However this order was for my son who picked the 2 tone tan and blue and was sent instead black and purple. Not sure yet on if we will go through the hassle of returning but was it really that hard to get the order correct the first time.
