Rated 4 out of 5 by Sporty! Alas, my jacket is not likely to see any "Alpine Action", but I sure look and feel like a skier when I'm wearing it! I love the all of the slimming and cool features of this jacket. Thank you, Columbia for putting a PU zippered pocket on the front! Okay, I don't really know what a PU zip means, but it seems to be a super-rare feature on plus-sized jackets and it looks so darned cool. This jacket looks so sporty, fits like a dream, if not a tad snug (go up a size if you wear sweaters!), and looks like a super high-end coat costing twice its price. Dear Columbia, thank you and please bring this back next year in some super fun colors or patterns and I might just show it off in or near a ski resort...on my way to a mall. October 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yippee! I am so thrilled with this jacket! For the first time in years I have a stylish jacket in my size , most jackets made for my size and shape are frumpy well not this coat ,it's cute & fashionable that is also drumroll Warm!!! I love the colour! I got nocturnal and hot coral the coral was brighter in the hood area than I anticipated but not in a bad way and in the front zipper pocket the colour is more muted so it's perfect! I just received my jacket today & went for a walk wearing it this evening and it monsoon rained with extreme wind ,I stayed warm & dry ! This coat repels water ! Can't wait for snow and skiing ! Thank you so much Columbia for making this in my size which is 2x and I'm Apple shaped with large chest and the fit is perfection ! October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome I live in rural Alaska and my mode of transportation is a quad. I needed something that is wind and waterproof. I normally wear a 1x but purchased the 3x based on reviews and the fact I wanted to be able to wear a hoodie or fleece underneath to make sure I stay warm. This size was perfect so I could layer if needed and still have room and be comfortable. This last week I was able to put the jacket to the test as we have had nothing but rain and high wind. This jacket exceeded my expectations. It not only keeps me dry and warm but it absolutely wind proof also. I am 100% positive it will hold up the same once the snow hits. I also love the style, color and fit of the jacket and o course all the zippered pockets. I would love to see Columbia make this jacket with some reflective stripes....that would make it even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Ever Jacket I am very impressed with the quality of this jacket. The detail is very well made and I love the sleeve cuffs with the half glove that keeps the sleeve in place all the time. The fit is perfect. I rec'd my jacket 5 days earlier than expected. Thanks September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Bought this jacket for my daughter who spends a lot of time outdoors. She had owned a Columbia jacket before and loved it. She gave it to a charity and was searching for a new one. She was so happy with the new one I purchased one for myself also. Awesome product February 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice Jacket I am normally a size 16, but this coat runs small around the hips. It is nice in person and great material, so from a 1X i have to go up to a 2X. This surely makes me feel even more self conscious to know I have to go even more up a size, because name brand companies only make these jackets for skinny no booty girls, even for something that states its Plus Size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight, warm and figure flattering Love my new jacket. It's warm but lightweight and is very fashionable. I'm a plus size and this jacket has seams that hug my curves but not in a tight way. February 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice looking jacket The jacket is nice looking, fits good. My only two wishes for it, is that it to be warmer and longer. I'm 5'11" and I know I have a long torso, but it's unfortunately a tad short for me. February 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket I have been looking for a jacket that fits right and keeps me warm, and this one is perfect. I love it! February 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this jacket I like everything about this jacket, especially the omni heat feature and the cleverly placed pockets. The omni heat makes it warm without bulk. I would buy another in a slightly longer back, as this one just comes to the back of the butt. Only feature I might add is double zipper so you could open the coat around the hips while riding in the car. January 31, 2016
