So disappointed. I really liked this jacket
on November 20, 2014
So disappointed. I really liked this jacket....at first. I liked the fit, how warm it was and light it was. However, I have had the coat for less than 2 months and I have only worn it about 10 times. I washed it for the first time because some food got spilled on it. I reviewed the care instructions, washed it on delicate in my front load washer on cold. I air dried it and when I went to put it on the next day, the coat was a mess. Strings were pulled out everywhere on the coat. The coat had puckers and broken strings from the collar down to the pockets. So, so disappointed. Can't believe this is a Columbia jacket....should be able to hold up after one wash on the gentle cycle. It really looks bad and I feel like I did not get a quality product. I ordered one for my daughter also, but I didn't get hers through Amazon. She is afraid to wash hers now and I don't blame her. We live in Alaska, our coats get a lot of use. We have to be able to wash them because we play hard in them. I love the color and the style, but will not buy again. I will have to wear this coat and it will be very, very bad advertising for Columbia.....the coat looks like it sprouted hair!
