I was looking for a shell which this is not, but this is a very lightweight warm jacket. I almost kept it because I love the omni-heat, and how lightweight it is. The only concern I had was the zipper: not sure how long it would last because it didn't seem very sturdy. The outer fabric was really lightweight, but the tag did guarantee a degree of weather resistance.

I have purchased several Columbia coats, jackets and vests from Sierra Trading Post and have been very happy with every one of them. However, this jacket has a strange cut in the sleeves; they hit high up under the arm and rub. Other than this, the jacket is great for those cold runs around town.

I bought a Large for my husband who is 6'3" and 197lbs. It fit great, with the arms being just the right length. It is very light weight and warm for Appalachian winters. My only complaint is that it is quite noisy. The reflective lining makes a distinct russling nose when you move around. You won't have to worry about sneaking up on people with this jacket on.

This jacket is everything that Columbia says it is: very warm, very light weight, and very packable. I use it under a wind/rain parka for cold weather. Though I first ordered a medium, I had to exchange for a large size to have more movement.

Primaloft is a great product, very warm and light weight for it's thickness.
I had high hopes for this jacket and was disappointed it did not fit well. The jacket is fitted which is not necessarily a problem, however the sleeves have very high and tight arm openings. These were uncomfortable and prevented movement. Unfortunately this jacket had to be returned.

This is a very light yet very warm jacket;the Omni-Heat® thermal reflective lining works as advertised. The jacket will keep you warm in weather at 0 degrees F and above and you can definitely fit it into a backpack without taking up much room.
