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.
I bought this as a fall coat but it is not warm enough for Quebec weather. I feel like I could only wear this from may to september. I gave it 4 stars because it is well-made but it is a little big for me, I bought a large and I'm 5'6 / 165lbs.
I received the coat yesterday and its slightly different than the picture. There is no emblem for omnitech on the arm. I don't even know if it's really waterproof or not because I haven't worn it in the rain. Overall, the coat fits well but I recommend sizing up for a fit with a sweater underneath.
I used to work for Columbia Sportswear so when purchasing this jacket style I knew that I needed to size down. I’m a petite size. I’m 5’2, 34D, size 4 in jeans & dresses. I ordered an Xs and it is perfect. It fits but still has a little looseness to not look too fitted. If you want to wear multiple layers under this or even a fleece coat, I would not size down because as is it doesn’t have the extra room to accommodate. I could wear a very thin athletic zip up jacket and a long sleeve tee comfortably under this jacket as is right now. If you are average height and built then I would go with your normal size, but if you are petite- size down. This style is not built with petites in mind and the sleeves and length are long and unflattering if you size too big.
