I received this jacket as a gift for the holiday (but only after much of my own research, of course) and it has definitely been my favorite gift! I LOVE green, and it's definitely the perfect lime green. Not too obnoxiously bright, but not too pale. The inside accent color is brown, and the inner layer is sooo soft. The only thing I find a bit annoying about it is that the inside layer snaps in, it doesn't zip in, so I find it easier to put on one layer at a time. Not a huge deal considering how warm the jacket actually is. I haven't tested it out with any skiing or snowboarding, but for everyday wear in lower than -15 degree northern new england weather, it's fabulous. Very stylish, and fit me perfect--true sizes! The arms aren't too short, and the back is just long enough that it covers my back when I bend over. Overall, awesome jacket, great color, very warm, and super stylish. Go Columbia!
