Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by WisGuy from Packerland on Wednesday, October 29, 2014This is an excellent lightweight jacket that can stand on its own, I would imagine down to about 5-10 degrees with a sweater on underneath, or as a warm liner for one of Columbia's 3-in-in Interchange jackets. I got tired of shivering below 10-15 degrees wearing my Interchange jacket with only the fleece liner jacket in it the past two seasons so I contacted Columbia, they confirmed that the Shimmer jackets have compatible zippers, so I ordered this one in the dark gray color that perfectly matches my navy and gray outer Interchange shell. It has the sleeve and collar loops to retain in the shell and does in fact zip perfectly into the shell's zipper, just as well as the original liner. Although it is quite warm and I suspect will extend the useable range of the Interchange system down to at least -10*F, it does not look any bulkier zipped into the Interchange shell than with the original fleece liner.
The jacket looks good in person, better than in the photos and while I doubted I'd use it for anything other than a liner when I ordered it, after trying it on, I like how it looks by itself and I will be using it as a solo jacket until it gets cold enough to zip it into the Interchange shell. It is pretty generously sized (I wear a size 46 sport coat) but not bulky. The outer shell is quite thin and does not seem like it would fare well being brushed too close to a thorn bush or barbed wire fence, but does seem fairly water repellent. The inner liner is quite cool looking, with a very shiny metallic gun metal color reflective fabric that is much softer to the touch than it appears. Hand pockets have very warm, soft liners. Comes with an inner chest pocket, but unfortunately, not an outer Napoleon/chest pocket that would be most handy for carrying a cell phone.
Overall, it's a very good jacket and with a price hovering slightly above a half c-note with 40% off coupon, it is an outstanding value.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by MTtrailrunner from MT on Sunday, April 27, 2014There's no doubt the omni heat interior resembles a disco ball or tin foil, alien-avoidance system. But it is very warm for its weight and sheds light moisture well. I deduct one star personally as I really miss a chest pocket and the boxy fit is sort of iffy for me, like always feel in between sizes. Columbia just often fits me like this. I'm an average build and the torso has a ton of room. If you like athletic, trim cuts you will swim in this. Thus for me, there's no way I could wear anything over this. I might have tried a size down if they had it in this just to see but at the same time I can't really say it's the wrong size..Just boxy. The inner cuffs are nice and not tight at all. Kind of need them as there is no adjustment on the main cuff. Zippers work well and hand pockets are lined and comfy, as is the collar. Outer material is not crazy shiny like many of these kinds of jackets, so that's good for my taste. The dark green is more matte finish than the other colors.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by slider from Iowa on Sunday, April 13, 2014I wore this coat while riding my motorcycle in 40 deg. temps with nothing more than a t-shirt underneath it. Stayed toasty warm.

Question & Answer
“Could this jacket be used as a liner for the interchange system in the Bugaboo Kustom jacket:
I think you probably could, the zippers appear to match size wise. If not it would probably work well for layering. I've always had a good experience whenever I've had to exchange or return if it doesn't.
