When I first got it out of the package, I thought the jacket was a bit thin and lacking some insulation. However, within minutes of trying it on, the jacket puffed up. Super comfortable and looks really nice. The hood is a nice addition too. Why get a pricey North Face when you can get something just as good (maybe even better) for half the price.

I definitely recommend this jacket. It does come a little snug, I ordered a Medium at first then returned and got a large. I'm 5'7'' and 160 lbs and the Medium was too small, so if you are bigger order the Large. I wore it with only a t-shirt underneath while shoveling our first significant snowfall when the temp was in the teens and I was sweating profusely. GREAT JACKET...I fully endorse Columbia Jackets with Omni-Heat!

Hood is sewn in, non-detachable, and adjustable both in terms of its position and tightness on your head. Material is 100% nylon with 100% polyester lining. Filler is 85% duck down and 15% feathers. It has internal mesh pocket big enough for your ski goggles at the bottom right, but no other internal pockets. I am 5'10", 205 lbs. and the large fit perfectly around my body with the sleeves reaching my second knuckle. I wish the elastic in the wrists and waist were tighter to keep out the cold, as they are not very snug. I also wish the hood was detachable. There are two outside welt pockets and a napoleon pocket, all of which zip closed. I wish the welt pockets did not have zippers, as it would make it just a bit more comfortable on my hands and reduce the likelihood of snagging my gloves. Mine arrived with the remnants of an annoying price sticker someone had placed on it.

I field tested this jacket on the Outer Banks in April in the pouring rain and 50 degree temperature. In my subjective opinion the Omni Heat lining does not materially affect the warmth factor of the jacket. The printed metallic liner is soft and not irritating at all. Also, as a softshell, this jacket is water RESISTANT and does shed light precipitation very effectively, but it is not waterPROOF, and you must realize that if you get real down soaking wet the jacket's heat retention properties are gone. I used Penguin brand waterproofing spray, but at the cost that the jacket won't be as breathable after this treatment. A little bit of the filler material came out of the seams when I first unpacked it but its nothing to worry about.

Bottom line is that it's an acceptable substitute for a more traditional bulky winter jacket for all but the more extreme environments and activities. Its stylish and looks good.

As a lifelong participant in extreme sports, I own over 20 jackets and coats. The warmest winter coat I own is the LL Bean Duffle Coat and the best raincoat is the LL Bean Trail model (comes in lined and unlined). All this being said the Columbia Hellfire is a very good, quality product and you wont regret getting it.

I can say without a doubt this is the best jacket I have ever owned. It is very warm, without overheating me. It looks very stylish (more of a purple than a blue), it is light, and versatile. I feel like buying another one in another color. You can't go wrong with this jacket.

Very warm jacket for its thickness. I've worn it in -40c and was still warm! Only problem was that I ordered it in blue and the color is purple. Not sure if it was a mistake by the shipper. But still a nice color

This coat is very light and very warm it doesn't restrict your movement at all. Great coat for driving although you may need to turn down the heat.

I wear this to work every day in NYC. I was thinking about investing in a nice leather jacket but for 1/4 the price I get a jacket thats light weight and comfortable while keeping me warm out side but cool in the subway.

I fully recommend this jacket.

Jacket arrived on time and looks great, feels warm. I have had no issue of feathers coming out as some others have mentioned.
I am very happy with this purchase.

My husband loves this jacket. He said it was light but very warm! He loves the green color it looks great with his favorite football team hat. Philadelphia Eagles
