Love this coat!

This coat is so cute, I can't wait for the weather to change. I love the unique color (mineshaft), it's taupe. I was expecting it to be shinier, it is more matte, but gorgeous. This coat does run a tad small, but I did not order up. I tried it on with a medium thick sweatshirt and it's fine. It is just a tad snug in the shoulders on me (I have very broad shoulders). This coat is definitely a slim style fit- it has a slight hourglass shape to it. A very flattering look. If you like a straight hanging, roomier feel, this coat is not for you.

I haven't had a chance to test the warmth of it yet, but I have had many of these lightweight down jackets. The thin design is deceiving- these coats are warmer than you think. That being said, I am not expecting it to be my go to coat in the dead of an upper Midwest winter. It will take me to the early part of winter, and then again in March for spring.

The construction and materials seem solid, up to my expectations for a Columbia product. Time will tell how it wears. I am replacing another lightweight down jacket (different brand) that didn't last long. I got that one from STP as well. You can't win every time, but I'm glad that at least I paid the lowest price out there. STP always has phenomenal deals.
