Rated 5 out of 5 by Definitely RECOMMEND!! I live in Minnesota and this coat holds up to cold temperatures. I am very pleased with how warm it kept me during our frigid winter weather. Only concern is that some of the seams seems to be fraying every so slightly, so I hope that this does not continue, as I hope to have this coat for several years. Overall, very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional and Stylish! This coat is fantastic! It might be the warmest coat I've ever owned. It's lightweight, but the reflective heat technology keeps you so warm. My college town gets extremely cold in the winter, and I can wear this around campus and feel protected from the elements. I first discovered this coat when I tried on my friend's, and although I'm usually a small, my friend's medium fit me great! It's also very fashionable! I wear mine just about everywhere right now because it goes with everything and it's so cute! February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This jacket is lovely:) My new Shimmer Flash jacket is lovely and not bulky and it is lightweight but very warm! I received it during the coldest and snowiest weather on record on Pennsylvania and it is perfect! I am truly enjoying this well-made, stylish and functional jacket. January 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING Oh my gosh i love this jacket! It's so comfortable and simple to wear out to a party or wear to dinner. I love it. January 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket This is my second one! It is the lightest-weight, warmest jacket I have ever had. Great fit. My only complaint is that the fabric in the pockets keeps getting caught in the zippers. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! This coat is awesome! It feels so light when you are wearing it and not bulking and heavy like some winter coats are. It is very warm. I did have to order a larger size so it would fit in my shoulder area which made the bottom part around the waist a little bigger then I would have liked, but overall fits well. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT I was skeptical that it would be warm enough for skiing or even be that cute but I absolutely love it. Its really cute and very warm even in New Hampshire and I'm really excited to use it. I got the purple in a small and im about 5'6" and 130 and it fits very well... great price for a great jacket by a great company. January 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Jacket This jacket is so warm. It get the job done and it is light weight. January 16, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Color is not what it appears I received this coat one day later than it was supposed to arrive. I opened it at night when there was only artificial light and I was almost horrified to see a traffic-cone orange color. In comparison to the picture of the coat on my computer I would never call the coat Red. The next day in natural light it looked a little better, but I still was not happy with the color. Unfortunately I can't comment on the warmth of the coat because I returned it the next day. Also although every review I read said the coat ran small, I didn't find that. I ordered a Medium, when I would normally order a Small, and found it to be big and shapeless, it didn't look good on me at all. I returned the coat the next day. I was also very upset to have to pay for the return shipping myself. January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable, Minnesotan winter-proof! I bought this jacket in black. It looks and feels like a high quality product (which is what you expect from a name-brand like Columbia). I ordered the small, as I'm usually on the fence between that and medium and I'm quite short, and it seemed a bit small at first, but worked out well! As a Texan, I feared my upcoming trip to Minnesota in the winter of 2013, but this jacket kept me completely warm at -20 degree (F) temps with a -60 degree (F) wind chill! (I wore about two layers underneath along with a scarf of course) January 14, 2014
