I must admit that I was a skeptic at first, especially about the Omni-Heat thermal lining. However, I was delightfully proven wrong because this jacket is simply awesome.
It is very warm and form flattering, something that I find lacking when it comes to winter gear for the ladies. I must admit though, that this jacket runs a bit small. I have always owned Columbia jackets for the winter because I find them more functional, warm, and durable. All my other jackets are medium, but for this one, I had to get a large.
I live in Buffalo, NY and we've gotten quite a bit of snow along with temperatures in the teens, with wind chills that have been up to -15 degrees Fahrenheit this week alone!! The only thing this jacket is missing for me is a hood. The best part? It comes with actual deep pockets! Something that is extremely rare for anything for women! Albeit, there are only two and no inner pocket, but I can live with that!
