Why We Like The Rugged Path Parka

Most insulated jackets take a beating in the rain, but the Columbia Men's Rugged Path Jacket is capable of taking a licking and still retaining its lofty warmth, so even if the weather outside is dreary, we take our daily hikes, walks to work, or quick jaunts to the corner store. The Omni-Tech construction with fully sealed seams renders precipitation a non-issue, and the Omni-Heat thermal reflective lining helps us stay warm and cozy while negativing the elements. Toss in a couple zippered hand pockets and even an internal zippered security pocket for safe storage, and you've got a jacket that can keep the weather out and essentials in.

Awesome Jacket

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. Has a high end look but also functional. I have worn it on an evening out and while shoveling snow. Kept me warm in sub 10 temps with 20+ mile per hour winds. Also, get loads of compliments. Fit wise, I border between Medium/Large and in a medium I still have plenty of room.

Zipper Broke

The zipper broke probably the fourth time I wore the jacket. Quality was fine otherwise, but it's not going to work

Perfect Parka for Cold Weather

This jacket came at the right time for my son as he works nights and it has been really cold in New Jersey. This keeps him very warm.

Great Coat with an awful zipper

This is the second winter I have worn this coat and up to this point it has been fantastic. It's warm, fits well and looks good. The zipper, however, is awful. Bending down to pick up a glove I had dropped resulted in the zipper breaking. This is an expensive coat with a very cheap plastic zipper. It's clear based on the reviews that a lot of folks have had zipper issues with this particular coat. I'm disappointed that Columbia does not seem to have addressed the zipper issue. I
