Versatility and Warmth
on January 23, 2013
I will go ahead and state I work for Columbia Sportswear, but I will try to give an unbiased review. There was a reason I chose this interchange above my many choices. The 100 grams of insulation in the liner is our highest grade, and I need that for the Minnesota Winter, with this jacket on and minimal layering my core has never been cold, even outside at negative temperatures for over a half hour. I am 5' 9" 150 pounds, the medium is a great fit with the small exception of the sleeves being a little long. The liner by itself is a great warm early winter coat. Despite what some people are saying the liner is not truly waterproof, just very water resistant, the shell is rain and wind proof. This is an overall excellent winter coat for the northeast, midwest, west and northeast.
