I purchased this winter jacket in December (2020). It is a 3 in 1 winter jacket with an shell jacket on the inside that can come out to be wore just as the shell or together with both outer shell and inner shell jacket. The inner shell jacket threads started coming undone near the left cuff in January. Very poor stitching on the inner jacket. The zipper popped off the same inner shell jacket in February. It is broken and can not go back on. The jacket most likely needs to have a new zipper. I contacted Crazy Deals company and requested that they send a replacement inner shell jacket or a refund for that jacket. Crazy deals informed me that nothing can be done to replace this jacket and no refund can be provided because it was past the 30 days return. I expressed my disappointment to them. Crazy Deals should have provided a replacement jacket. The product needs both jackets to work as an effective winter jacket. It was a very expensive jacket ($300 plus) and it hasn’t even lasted three months. I will never purchase from this company again due to this experience.
I'm almost 6'2 and 225lbs & it's impossible finding a women's tall(ish) plus size coat without looking like youre wearing a box. 🙄 (Sleeves were a smidge short, but I'm used to it. This coat was what I needed for skiing and other active outdoor activities. I hadn't even left the spot where I opened the package & the zipper started to SPLIT. I had read quite a few reviews with this exact complaint, but I thought I'd take a chance. The zipper itself doesn't seem bad, but the teeth it feeds into is definitely NOT the quality I have been used to having both Columbia and North Face coats in the past. I would definitely NOT recommend buying this coat, unless you plan on dropping another $50+ to have a higher quality zipper installed by a tailor. Please Columbia, use a higher quality zipper, especially on jackets that will be used what they are made for. PS. If you could make a Plus Size Tall line for WOMEN, that would be great too. Because believe it or not, plus sized tall women actually enjoy skiing, snowboarding, sledding & stay physically active all year round. 😉
Love this jacket! I have worn skiing and it was almost too toasty! I wear the inner jacket a lot by itself and the outer shell on rainy days. I’m a size 16/18, kinda tall with a moderately tall torso (average women’s shirts are often just a little short on me) and the 2x is a good roomy first. I probably could have gotten away with a 1x, but glad would rather have it be loose. Live the color and quality. Just what you would expect from Columbia.
Well made jacket. Fits true to size. I'm a fat apple shaped woman and wear a size 20 and the 2X fit tight in the tummy with both jacket layers (but did fit and zipped and didn't bunch/roll!) but the 3X was too big. Waterproof. Strong. Warm. I got this as a replacement for an older style Columbia jacket and very pleased.
This jacket is very warm. My husband has the mens version so I already knew a little about it. Columbia jacket sizing is sometimes a little smaller than usual (in my experience). I still fit in my regular size but it is not as "relaxed". I found this to be true with this jacket also. I am pleased with my purchase.
I like in Minnesota and having the three-in-one option is very nice. I use the outer shell in cool, rainy or breezy spring/fall weather. I use the inner shell in dry early winter or early spring. I use the whole jacket set in dead winter when it’s freezing and windy.
