Amazing packability into a quart-sized Ziplock bag for camping trips. Kept reviewers warm in subfreezing weather. Relaxed cut allows for layering underneath. Warm, insulated hood a popular feature. Long arms ideal for taller men. Reflective interior lining keeps body heat in.
Hood can’t be tightened. Runs large. Feathers leak out for some.
A “perfect fit” for many. Great variety of colors to choose from. Tests well for warmth by reviewers who live in subfreezing weather. Repels a fair amount of water and this synthetic down keeps you warmer in wet conditions than real down. Lightweight.
Too bulky or “puffy” for some. While a perfect fit for most, too big for others.
A solid choice for a thin but warm jacket. Ideal for casual wear. Machine washable and tumble dry. Good price (variety of colors to choose from, some colors cheaper). Water resistant. Good for layering.
Too thin for some reviewers – more like a liner than a jacket. Runs quite large.
Exceptionally lightweight. Omni-Heat reflective lining keeps you nice and toasty on freezing days. Lots of pockets. Not too tight for layers – quite perfect for layers over or under. Water resistant.
When not on sale, can be expensive. Not for subzero weather conditions.
Excellent ratings for warmth in winter weather. Bargain price. Reflective lining traps in body heat without making you sweat. Roomy and a good fit for larger men. Non-down insulation better for wet weather, though this jacket is not technically water resistant.
Doesn’t have a hood. Consider purchasing a size down because runs large.

A Columbia down jacket can keep you comfortably warm on your path to adventure. Down is a fantastic insulator; the feathers retain body heat to keep you warm in even in chilly, wet weather. Because of this, you can often get by with a thinner down jacket, even in winter. If you travel often, this is especially important — look for a packable down jacket that won’t consume too much suitcase space. Many Columbia down jackets are waterproof, so if you’ll be venturing out in wet conditions, this coat is ideal. And good looks are certain: Men’s Columbia down jackets come in a number of fine styles, from the classic hooded jacket to the retro puffy jacket — and you’ll find a number of bold colors to suit your bold lifestyle.
