I LOVE Columbia, but I was a little disappointed in the warmth of this jacket. Very much meant for spring, and it is not as warm as an older Columbia jacket of the same loft that this was supposed to replace.

That being said, the heat-sealed seams are pretty great and it is VERY water resistant for just being a puffy. I would know, I've worn it while working hot days in an ice castle.

How much does it weigh?
I wish you guys would put the weight of all of your products in the tech specs. It would be so much easier.
