With Omni-HEAT™ thermal reflective lining, Omni-TECH™ waterproof outer, and attached adjustable storm hood, the Carson Pass II is ready to stand up to the nastiest weather. Meanwhile the zippered chest pocket and dedicated device pocket keep valuables safe, and close at hand.
I absolutely LOVE my Columbia Carson Pass II jacket!
The construction is sturdy, but moves well. All of the zippers and snaps are heavy duty. The 9 pockets inside and out are perfectly placed and generous in size. There's even a nerd pocket with a pen holder and room for a small writing pad. The exterior bottom pockets are quite roomy, with a soft lining. I discovered that the flaps can be tucked neatly inside the pocket for ease of slipping hands in and out with no scratchy zipper in the way. I appreciate the thermal reflective technology. I wore it recently in 25 degree weather with strong winds, and it kept me quite comfortable without the bulkiness of most winter coats. I especially like the overall length. It provides warm coverage to an area often neglected in women's jackets. This coat is a good value, and money well spent.
