This is an awesome jacket!

  • Fit:True to size

The outer design is really nice. It somewhat resembles a sweater look. It's light and thin enough that it keeps in heat when it's chilly and is breathable when it's a bit warmer. As far as the omniheat technology... I don't really notice much of a difference. It is compatible with all Columbia brand layering coats/jackets. I really like this jacket!

Very warm

    Those little silver dots really work. So much to the point where I rarely take it out skiing, as it tends to be too warm. But for cool weather, this makes a great outer piece, or as a burly mid-layer for truly arctic conditions. Be careful when you are about town and have it unzipped, people will see the silver dots and start asking questions.

    Excellent cold weather capability. With just a long sleeve underneath the Grade Max will suffice in temps ranging from 20-30 degrees. The Omni-Heat is no gimmick. The silver lining is really eye-popping and I'm not sure what to make of it. It seems to stick to my under layer. Quality and construction are top notch. The wool material adds a really nice touch to it. I'm 6'0 and 185lbs, a size M fits me perfectly. I'll grab this before my TNF Venesborg jacket when I'm going out. It has no bulk to it which is very important to me. Best fleece I've owned.

    This is a great jacket. Fits perfect. The wool is where it needs to be and the polyester is too, so movement is not impaired. The cuffs are poly, so it doesn't wear out as fast. The omni heat liner is neat, little shiny but okay none the less. Sizing is true, I got a medium, it you are planning on layering a lot, go to the larger size.
