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 ordered Columbia's Mighty Lite Hooded Jacket and the Heavenly Long Hooded Jacket so that I could compare them. For anyone else wondering what the difference is, here's what I found: --Mighty Lite (ML) is a bit lighter than the Heavenly Long (HL), and I believe the HL would keep you a bit warmer because I noticed a difference even while wearing it indoors for a few minutes --HL has a much cozier, fleece-lined hood, whereas the ML hood is just the same material as the outside of the jacket --ML is slightly more fitted around the waist and hips, sort of like a 'slim fit' whereas the HL is a more generous, 'classic fit'. (I didn't notice a difference in the bust or shoulders.) --Zipper on HL seemed a bit better and more smooth to zip up than ML, but not a big difference
If anyone is confused about the XXL size vs. the 2X, they are NOT the same. XXL is actually a size that falls in between 1X and 2X. Seemingly they have the same shoulder measurements but the XXL is smaller on the bust and waist.
Zipper is a little difficult to get started, but once you get it in the right position, it's great.
Overall I give the Heavenly Long 5/5 because it's a great lightweight jacket, and very warm despite being not heavy! Also I love the lined hood because I think it will help the hood stay up in a wind, and because it feels extra cozy. :)
I already had this coat in 2 colours so it was a no brainer when I saw the discounted price. I only wish they would do it in a 'tall' for those of us that are either tall or would like it to keep our knees warm, which I would love. I'm 5ft 5 inch and it comes about 3 inch above my knees. All the tall coats I have seen are too thick and heavy for me. This is perfect weight and thickness for our mildish winters on Vancouver Island,BC,Canada.
Found it very unflattering (it's somewhat tight but also puffy so you look like the Michelin man) and the length was awkward for me. It was restricting my legs from walking normally. Ended up returning it and getting the Columbia Carson Pass coat which I love.
This coat is the perfect car coat or walking coat for winter, spring or fall. Light in weight and warm. It fits as expected. I bought it larger than my normal size so it will fit nicely over winter clothing.
Very light and comfortable. I ordered 3x and it was a little larger than I hoped. I kept it because I can wear it with a bulky sweater. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 is because the zipper is not the smoothest
This is a great versatile coat. Perfect for wet or moderately cold days, yet lightweight when you go inside to shop. I have it in black and malbec now and it will be my "go everywhere" coat at this time of year.
