Columbia Men's Ballistic II Fleece Jacket
Wind-resistant against a winter blast, the Columbia Sportswear Men's Ballistic II Fleece Jacket uses soft and comfy bonded fleece to guard against the elements during a bone chattering adventure. Reinforce at the chest and elbows with stretch twill, this Omni-Shield advanced repellency treated jacket protects against swirling snowflakes, a constant rain, or a stumble while crossing a stream. Designed with plenty of stretch properties, the Ballistic II ensures your every move while snowshoeing, long dog walks before the storm, or when adapting shredding the slopes. With a compatible 3-point Interchange system, this fleece nestles into a Columbia shell of choice as the perfect layering piece. When your physical activity gets your heart rate going, regulate your temperature by unzipping its underarm venting system and pump your arms a couple times to let your built-up body heat escape. Featuring a new longer cut, fresh colors, and all the gust-fighting gusto of years past, the windproof Ballistic II is every bit the modern mountain multi-tasker.

Its hard for me to find a jacket that fits my arms. Also, I work partly inside and partly outside and unzipping the side vents makes all the difference between the two. I plan on wearing this jacket for as long as it holds together which I imagine will be years to come.

This is a replacement for an original Ballistic fleece approximately 6 year old. The original is worn, but in good shape. The new version appears to be the same or better quality. The new version is warmer and windproof. The underarm zippers do a great job of regulating the temp. The zipper pockets are big. The placement seems a little off compared to the original but it is not a big deal. The new version has an internal elastic cuff that keeps snow and cold out much better than the original velcro strap. I use the coat for skiing and snowmobiling. The coat can be the outer layer other than very cold or heavy weather days. Fit seem true to size.

great coat for price
Bought this coat for a teneage son - he loves it and he likes it because it is warm without the bulk. He will hand it down to his dad - who also likes it - when he outgrows it.

Warm and well built jacket
This jacket exceeded my expectations. It is very wind and rain proof and is excellent as a stand alone outer layer in the 20 to 40 degree range. I have not needed to yet but I am sure it will serve as an excellent inner layer under any of my winter jackets when I am in the bitter cold. It is an athletic fit and has longish sleeves but the large on my 5' 10" and 190 lb frame fits very nicely. Not too loose and not too tight. The zippered side vents are necessary as the jacket is warm enough to make your back sweat in warmer weather or when excersizing. It is a bit heavier than my North Face fleece and warmer also. A nice addition to fill in when the fleece is not quite enough but full winter protection is not needed.

I love this coat, good for indoors and out. It blocks a good amount of wind, very comfortable. The little things make this jacket great. Big pockets, double cuffs (awesome), water resistance. Its good to wear on those days of cold wind with a light drizzle. This jacket keeps you "warm" not "hot" so when you walk indoors you don't have to take it off to stay comfortable. Great buy!
