Exactly what I was looking for!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
I ordered both L and XL, thinking I was going to choose between the 2 of them. Before I knew it, my daughter stole the smaller size and I am enjoying the bigger one. Things I love: It is reversible, so if you want a certain look, you have 2 choices. It has a pull string at the bottom to keep your legs warm. The hood can be rolled up and put away if not needed. It's very warm. We are experiencing record lows of -20F / -50F windchills and I am staying warm. Although I wouldn't stand outside for long in this weather, I feel confident that this jacket will keep me (and my daughter) warm. There is room to layer if you buy a bit bigger size. I fit perfectly in the L, but knowing that I might have to layer, the XL helps give the room. Can't say enough great things about this Columbia jacket. Can't wait to see the waterproofing for cold soccer games. Thanks Columbia and Back Country! You've made MN winters more bearable!
