Why We Like The Coldfront Down Hooded Jacket

On winter days when the winds howl and the skies threaten us with falling flurries, we slip into the Coldfront Jacket before heading into work. The tightly woven fibers stop gusts and flakes from finding entry, while pockets of down trap our heat inside, and strategically placed synthetic fill eliminates cold spots.

Super warm and nice fit

I love this coat but I try not to wear it in dirty places since the color shows stains easily

Very warm

Bought this for my mother who is always cold. Very warm, this beats out other puffy jackets we tried without being the size of a parka. Word of warning, they do run slightly large in size so take into account when purchasing.

Weird fit, fiddly drawstrings, bad cuffs

I returned this product before using it

I wanted to love this. I do love the 'watercolor nimbus' color, which I went for only because it was cheapest (not normally a pink person) but is actually really pleasant. The jacket seems warm. But the fit is really perplexing. I think it would fit somebody petite much better. I'm about 5'7" & a size 4, with fairly (but not especially) broad shoulders and a small bust, and I bought a size small, my usual. The sleeves are quite wide and there is more than enough room around the middle — I had to cinch down the waist to avoid drafts — but the jacket's waist hit me quite high on my own, and its back and shoulders are cut weirdly narrow. Reaching around with my arms led to a lot of pulling across the back that made me worry about stressing the fabric too much, and the jacket felt constricting to my range of motion. As a result, it just looked super unflattering and dumpy, between the puffy sleeves, the shrunken-looking shoulders (the sleeve seams hit too high on them) and the too-high waist cinch (think peplum). I think if I had sized up to a medium, it would have been too big around everywhere else. This just seems cut for somebody more petite. Aside from the fit, the jacket seemed very warm, and the hood is tremendous — it's very thick and generously sized with good coverage and a nice long neck (sometimes jacket hoods skimp on that, like you have no neck!), and the cinch on it is easy to use (and cinches just below where my ponytail is). I can't say the same for the waist cinch drawstrings. They would be much better if you could access them from inside the pockets, as you can on many jackets, rather than from inside the jacket itself. If you're getting a draft from the bottom and need to tighten up the waist to seal it off, you first have to unzip the jacket to access those drawstrings, and once you do they're small and fiddly — I can't imagine managing them wearing mittens. I'm also not into the thumbhole cuffs. They're a thin, slick, stretchy fabric — not cozy. I don't really see the point, other than keeping snow out of your sleeves. But decent gloves' cuffs would do a fine job of that.

Nice jacket

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this jacket because the sale price on this particular color (the blue came) was hard to pass up. I will be using it for winter dog walks. I ordered large instead of XL (I am often between these sizes depending on the brand). I have some other Outdoor Research items in size large also. It fits very well. I wouldn't say it runs incredibly large as other reviews said. However I didn't need to size up, so they must not be totally wrong. It's warm. 700 down fill is pretty good. It has a nice hood with a toggle to snug it down. It has cuffs at the wrist to keep the warmth inside. It covers your backside somewhat. Good zipper. The camo blue color is odd yet not terrible. It has some pink and gray mixed into it.

Amazingly warm!

This jacket has exceeded my expectations. I am in love with this coat! As others have reviewed, it runs a bit on the bigger side. I ordered a small- and was anxious, however I would say that I have room to wear a bulky sweater underneath and not feel restricted at all. Thank you for the amazing coat!

Super warm and comfy

I really like this hoodie. I've just been wearing it around town. It's kept me warm in 15-20 degree weather with wind and snow. I really like the teal color.

Love it!

Fits perfect & is exactly the level of warmth I was looking for. I love the color, deep pockets, inner pockets, & thumb hooks. The jacket fits true to size & I'm still able to wear a hoodie under if it I want more layers.

Just what I needed!

Perfect for keeping me snug and warm on cold winter walks during the day and when I walk my dog at night. Love the glove inserts and the hood and extra lined pockets. Just right!
