Columbia Women's Lay 'D' Down Faux Fur Jacket
Who said white isn't practical!
When I tried this coat on I knew it was the one for me. It's a great design...I bought XS which was snug, but my previous jacket was too baggy so I was pleased with the tighter fit. I've just returned from a week on the slopes and my white jacket remains mostly white, despite my friends telling me it wasn't an ideal colour for skiing. It kept me nice and warm in the -3+ conditions and I'm so pleased I spent a bit more this time and bought a decent skiing jacket.

I love this coat!
This is my new favourite coat. It provides instant warmth and the omniheat technology is fantastic. It's a little on the snug side - I'm a size 14 and the Large size is just about big enough if you're wearing a thin fleece underneath - you certainly couldn't wear a bulky jumper under it.
I've found I also have to be quite pedantic about making sure the zip is in its little catch when I first do it up, otherwise it's apt to break open at the bottom. But apart from that there are no flaws that I know about.
I'm a big gadget geek, and this coat provides lots of things to discover and play with, in terms of detachable and handy zips inside and outside.
I would heartily recommend this coat to anyone, whether for snow sports, or just for general winter wear.

Perfect Ski Jacket
Purchased for a ski trip to Aspen over Spring Break. My wife is very small but reading other reviews decided to go with a Medium. It fit her really well, the small would have been too small I am sure. The jacket is warm, yet breathes very well for the warm days on the slopes. She loved the pink color.

Glam Snow Coat
I really love this coat, it is well fitted, warm and looks fabulous. I was concerned about the white getting grubby but the coat has detachable fur and is easily cleaned.

Warm and comfortable
I was looking for something that I could hike, ski and survive the cold New England winters. This coat is very warm and still stylish. It's not bulky but keeps so much warmth in that I've had to unzip it hiking in -10 degree weather. Worthwhile purchase.

Superb jacket and flattering cut
I would recommend this jacket to all ages and in fact bought the same one for my 15 year old daughter - and she loves it also

Go to winter coat
The coat has everything I need in a coat! fashionable style, inner pockets, omni heat, soft lining in pockets, and a hood. The fit is perfect with a modern look. The material is flexible and lets me move. My one and only coat!

Lay D Down Jacket
The jacket is very warm, which is exactly what I was looking for this winter. We are having record low temps and the heater is not working well in my car, and the jacket is keeping me warm!
The fake fur sheds a bit around the hood and I am not thrilled with the color of the sleeves - grey with the white jacket. But all in all I am very happy with my purchase.
