Columbia Chugach Men's Down Jacket
January 13, 2011

Purchased this jacket to use when traveling to the Northeast USA. 4 star rating at this time because have not tested under extremely cold conditions yet. So far, only low 40 degrees F wearing a t-shirt. Surprised how light and packable this jacket is. Size Med fit is very comfortable and will be able to layer underneath if needed. Tried wearing this jacket indoors because it is supposed to be breathable and found it comfortable. Wanted a machine washable product and it was not listed on the specs, so contacted Columbia prior to purchase of the new Omni-Heat product. Look forward to testing the Omni-Heat product further when experiencing very cold temperatures. I am very pleased with this purchase so far. The service and shipping offered by Altrec continues to be terrific.

Another Great Columbia Product
March 12, 2011

After a long season ice fishing my 4 year old Columbia was finally starting to show it's age and it was time for a new jacket. My wife spotted this jacket in a local store, but they didn't have the color and size combination we needed. I was very happy with the price of the jacket thru Altrec as it worked to be cheaper that I had originally expected. The jacket is very warm, and is less bulky than other down jackets. I haven't had the jacket out in any extreme cold yet(hopefully not til next winter) but the omni-heat really seems to work quite well. After even some light activity is seems the jackets heats up and keeps you toasty warm. I would recommend this jacket as a great all around jacket.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value

Great jacket
January 28, 2011

Wonderful Jacket, super light, very warm and soft. I wear it over a t shirt and that's all I need to be protected from very cold days. I'm not gentle with my clothes so I don't know how long it will last but it looks pretty strong.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Awesome Purchase
January 05, 2011

I bought this down jacket for my fiance for Christmas. Last Christmas I bought him a North Face. There is no comparison!!! This jacket has an insulated lining that stays warm with your body heat. He is outdoors quite a bit, and he says it's the warmest jacket he's ever owned. It is lightweight and an overall wonderful purchase. I will purchase a coat just like his for myself.

columbia chugach jacket
March 11, 2011

This is my second Columbia jacket. The first was a Bug-a-Boo and it is extremely warm and durable. It weighs heavy on my sore shoulder, so I ordered the Chugach for its lightweight. On that, it delivers. This new jacket is lightweight, warm and very comfortable. I am disappointed that it does not appear to have the quality zippers and wrist bands that the older jacket has. It looks good, fits well, but gives me the impression that I better not snag the zipper or use the coat for active wear. Time will tell if it is durable-but perhaps that is the compromise one gets when selecting a lightweight winter coat. It sheds rain well and is warm, although I have not had it out in any extreme temperature to date. Bottom line, Columbia needs to keep its good name by reverting back to quality zippers and details like the elastic wrist band area. I recommend this coat for those who do not expect to be involved in active wear.

Pros: Great value, lightweight, warm, Cons: zippers, wristband

Appealing Jacket
February 21, 2011

Lightweight material with the down and omni-heat makes for a very warm jacket. Without the bulk. I'm 6' and 160lbs. I normally wear a medium coat, but the large fit perfectly for me with just a little room for more under dressing. I gave 5 stars without knowing the durabilty as of today. Will update if applicable. The reflective lining is great, whereas I have other articles of clothing with this technology. I live in the midwest and find this jacket to be a perfect complement! Thanks Altrec for your prompt sevice.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value
