I've never owned a more windproof jacket! Wore this coat on a motorcycle and felt NO breeze coming through. Also super warm on some chilly Minnesota days. I love the length of this jacket, and the fact that it zips apart into 2 jackets.
Thumbholes are a good idea, but not executed as well on this jacket as I've seen on others. The slits are too small for my thumbs, and tight, so I don't use them.
I kind of wish the hood was lined, or that the inner fleece jacket had a hood that lined the outer waterproof shell. Since it's so thin and not lined, you can't really use it for warmth in the winter.
I read other comments that said this jacket picks up lint, and they were right! My friends and family noticed that my coat was furry with lint and hair, so that is the WORST thing about this coat.
But overall this coat is versatile, and not too bulky (I was able to shove it under an airplane seat that was already full with an overstuffed backpack). Warm, waterproof, and windproof! Great price for Columbia, too.
