    SmartPak Winter Jacket is rated 4.337 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from strange fit I bought a medium and also a large in this jacket...despite some of the reviews on the zipper etc. I am 5/6" & 127lbs...both were too small! I sized way up because of the reviews & wanted enough room to layer if I needed to. the medium was hands down too small & tight across the chest (by the way, I am small busted) the Large fit fine across the chest, but the arms/sleeves were strangely tight & tight across the shoulders. I sent both back-sadly. I wanted one of them to work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Warm! I bought this jacket last month and have worn it 4 times to the barn on very cold days. It is exceptionally warm and comfortable and not overly bulky for riding. I love the detachable hood and the wrist warmers with thumb holes. I also really like all the pockets, but some of them are too small to be really useful. I haven't had any problems with any of the zippers yet, they work great so far.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Winter jacket without the bulk The jacket is well constructed and has a lot of nice features. I normally wear a size medium Columbia jacket, so ordered the medium in the SmartPak Winter Jacket. Unfortunately, I had to return it for the size large. I'm hoping the large will provide more room for layering. Layering is beneficial to keeping warm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sizes run small. Quality of the zipper isn't great for the price. Nice jacket overall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well thought out design I returned this jacket because I realized quickly after opening it that it was not going to have enought insulation for a MN winter. Other wise I liked the design and qualities.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the sale price! I bought this coat for $94 on sale with free shipping, so it was a great deal to begin with. I listened to other reviews who said it runs very small. I ordered an XXL when I usually wear an XL, and it fit perfectly. I like all the adjustable parts of this jacket. The zippers can be a bit fussy, but it does not bother me too much. The armpit vents are great, but the zipper sometimes sticks up and pokes you under your arm. Very warm and definitely waterproof. I wouldn't recommend it for full price, but if you can get it on sale, it's totally worth it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket I bought this jacket last winter and love it for the warmth. I've warn this in 10 degree weather with a few layers (under armor and fleece) and my core was never cold. I am not too excited about the fit in the arms though. I do not have stick arms and yet it is made for people with skinny limbs, so the arms are bit snug. The snaps on the wrist come undone all the time too, but that doesn't bother me as much. I've never had a problem with the zipper. Wish I had exchanged it for a larger size when I had the chance. Otherwise, I love this jacket. It's very well made.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice jacket, Awful Zippers and snaps I have this jack for a year a half. The snaps have never stayed closed. Every zipper splits when closed or gaps and gets stuck. The jacket is warm comfortable. It runs small. It also looks nice.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor zipper construction I purchased this jacket back in 12/2012 and the first one lasted a few months before a zipper failed. Smartpak replaced it for me no problems. But now my second one I've had for one winter season, really 2013-14 and now 2 zippers have failed on this one. I do love the style of the jacket and the fit, but one pocket is unusable due a broken zipper and now the main zipper is broken. Poor manufacturing on 2 jackets.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost everything I wanted This jacket was the perfect winter riding jacket. Back vent, adjustable waist, vented arms, hood. But, the main zipper is made of cheap plastic and separated the first time I rode. I'm replacing the zipper with a metal one but wish the jacket had come that way in the first place especially at this price.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zipper broke first week This jacket was exactly what I was looking for, so I was very disappointed when the zipper broke the first week I wore it. Based on other reviews I did go up a size and was happy with the fit, even with a sweatshirt underneath. It was warm without being too bulky, and I loved the attached hood for rainy days. Hopefully Smartpak will upgrade the zipper in the future

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME jacket I purchased this jacket at Equine Affair in November 2013 and wear it regularly. I wear it to do chores, I wear it to ride (love the underarm zippers) and I even wear it out in the field for my day job!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sizing WAY off_ I thought this jacket was pretty and well made, but wow, was the sizing ever off! I wear a medium in nearly everything, every brand, but in this - I probably would have needed an x-large. Sent it back and got a Mountain Horse brand jacket. Very pleased with that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from zippers don't last I bought this jacket last year from the smartpak booth at Equine Affaire. I fell in love with it! Great fit,great look, and super warm. It worked out perfect all last season but at the beginning of this season the zippers on both side pockets broke, they split open when I try to zip them. This is how I lose things like my cell phone that ended up buried under snow in the ring last week. Now just the other day the front zipper did the same thing so I can't wear the jacket at all....I'm very upset. I know I've had it a year but most other jackets last through many years so I'm going to contact smartpak to c if there is anything they can do. But overall it has been a great jacket and I miss it very much since right now I don't really have another winter jacket that is suitable for riding.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sleeves too short Nice fit overall through the body and shoulders but the sleeves are very short. Will be sent back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and Cozy..but.... I love this jacket.. Its warm, versatile and looks good.. But their are a few drawbacks..The SIZING! Its made VERY SMALL! I am 115lbs about 5'1 and I needed a size large! (Medium fit but with a hooded sweatshirt, which I tend to where under my barn jacket, it felt too tight and restricted!I had to return the item- which unfortunately took a month to get it back.. Apparently they were overloaded and short staffed due to holidays.. Got the jacket on 12/27, sent back that day and did not get new jacket until 1/24!! I was disappointed in the turn around time- but I understand the crazy holiday season...So then I received my size large jacket, which fit GREAT! and was cozy and warm.. but then I noticed the inner lining in the sleeves that go over your hands to keep the snow out were stitched wrong! The holes that your thumbs were suppose to go in were on the pinky side! :(I called Smartpak first thing Monday morning, 1/27/14 and they kindly overnighted me a replacement jacket which I recieved today! So that was awesome and it was stitched right and fits great!NH winters have been brutal but with this jacket- no problem! I wear a long tee shirt and hooded sweatshirt underneath the jacket and Im sweating during chore time.. The underarm vents work great! and I LOVE the hood.. Its not as restrictive and tight as my other jacket! I like the reflective patches on the jacket as well!My only concern is the zipper quality.. I have already had trouble 24 hours into wearing it with the zipper and I fear it will break off! Its a very thin zipper- but I guess I can fix it...other than that great jacket!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So warm! I bought t his coat a month ago and I am thrilled! It is toasty warm and holds up well to horse drool and even the occasional teeth grab from a fresh pony! Does run a little small so I would suggest buying one size larger than normal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter jacket! This jacket it great! It's warm without being super bulky, the cell phone pocket is in a great place (on the chest), and the overall fit is flattering and functional. It also keeps you warm and dry when it's raining. My only complaint is the zippers don't seem to be very high quality. So far they work fine though. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Jacket I got this as a Christmas gift and couldn't be happier with it. I am very petite and the xs fits perfect. Usually even xs jackets are bulky on me, not this one. The fit is very flattering.It is also super warm without the bulk of most winter jackets. I have worn this in below freezing temps and still kept warm with only a thermal underneath.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the zippered vents! I went to my local store to look for one of these jackets with the vents and it was $225 on sale! I figured let me at least try SmartPak's version and see before I purchase the other one. I'm so glad I did! I love the vents, which I did open up and did make it cooler without me having to remove a layer. Granted, this jacket is for COLD weather, and by that, I think 35 degrees and below. Otherwise a vest and underlayer is better. I had good movement in the jacket, but I am curvy petite (5'1) so it does fit just a bit bigger than it should, but for the price, I couldn't beat it. It looks good on, and it has good room if you are bigger busted (I'm a 36DD and got the XL), and it kept me almost too warm once riding, but I was ok with that, and the vents were enough that I didn't really "think" about being too warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from flattering fit and great features I just love this jacket! It fits great and looks great. Can be adjusted a bit also. I got on sale too! Think I might buy another one for everyday and keep the first one for the barn.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Barn Coat I ordered this coat for a friend for a Christmas present and was so happy I did. She loved it, and all of the features make it a wonderful barn coat. It's a lot warmer than you would think for the weight, which is nice b/c I usually feel like a marshmellow in barn coats. It's so nice to have a detachable hood! And it's waterproof, which is great for turnout. It's definitely fitted, so buy a size up if you're concerned about getting a large sweatshirt under it. Overall really like the many features of this coat - I want one for myself!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some great features needs some tweaks I needed a winter riding coat that was  waterproof and warm.  I ordered a medium initially and had to return it for a large.  The sizing runs very small, 5' 6" 118# , and although the body fit would have been "okay" the arms were really tight and got uncomfortable after only a few minutes of trying it on so I know it would not have worked for either riding or chores unless you want to keep your arms stuck out straight all the time.   I sent it back and ordered a large which fits fine.   There are some nice features to it, the extended material at the sleeves with a thumb hole but the quality seems as though it may not hold up there, time will tell.  Love the hood design and it fits over a baseball hat or would probably fit over a helmet if need be.  The main pockets are quite small and barely hold a heavy pair of winter gloves, although there are several additional pockets.  It is pretty lightweight for as warm as it is. I wore it in a light rain with a turtleneck and light sweatshirt and was really warm, also used the hood and visibility was still good with the hood up.  The zippers are not a good quality and should be upgraded.  The second one I ordered in large  came with a defective zipper on one of  the main pockets so I also sent that one back and am on my third coat!  customer service was great in dealing with these issues and I have worn the coat several times now .  It is not real bulky or heavy but still very warm.  Have not worn it in a heavy rain but it did repel a "misty" rain quite well.     Lots of good features but needs a little upgrading.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket, But Needs Some Adjustments. I bought this jacket for winter weather days at the barn and to potentially ride if needed. There are some great features- nice fabric sleeves to stretch over your palm and with a thumb loop for extra hand coverage, decent pockets and a overall flattering fit and nice snap gussets at the back (for a more relaxed fit at the back/when riding).I initially was going to keep the jacket, as the price point was good, the weight was decent for 20's-40's weather and I liked the look of it. However, within week, the zipper (this jacket really needs a more expensive metal zipper with better and stronger tracking) broke. I was very disappointed, as I love me some Smartpak! But, the zipper is too flimsy for the jacket's level of bulk and I knew this problem would just persist with future models. So I ultimately returned the jacket, voiced my feedback to Smartpak reps (love them and did it very constructively) and invested in the Ariat Regent Insulated Parka. I have to say that for my purposes, this jacket is a much better fit. With some tweaks and adjustments though, The Smartpak Winter Jacket will be a winter riding staple!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome winter jacket Love this jacket! Really nice fabric and warmth level.  I am 5'4", 130 lbs, usually a size 8 and the medium fits perfectly. Jacket has a nicely fitted style, which may be why some said it ran small while I think it is very true to size. Got one for my sister, too! Highly recommend for winter riding. Dirt brushes right off, too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, comfy, cute I've worn this jacket several times now in 30-40 degree, windy weather in the south with a long-sleeved t-shirt/turtleneck and a fleece vest and it was great. If I added another layer, I'm sure it would be good with colder temps, too. The only drawback I've seen so far is that the main pockets are a little small - however, there are multiple pockets all over the jacket, so there is plenty of room for things. The fit is small - I usually wear small but got size medium and thought it might still be too snug when I first tried it on, but it's been fine. I'm a size 6-8. Like the hood, the armhole vents. Overall a great buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holy WARM! The first 27 degree, rainy work day up on the windy mountain, I put this coat on over just a short sleeved t-shirt. I was EXPECTING to freeze, since it's unbelievably light weight and fairly thin, that was far from the case. I had to open the vents while turning out and feeding because I was roasting! There are little thumb holes on the cuffs that I didn't notice until that evening which are brilliant for activities that keep your arms close, but I just know I'm going to tear the stitching if I use them with arms fully extended.The sizing, however is ridiculously off. I have two other jackets in a size Large, which is what I bought this in, and I could completely wear this under them. Having said that, I would be able to use this with just a long t-shirt or a light fleece shirt, and I wouldn't have to layer up NEARLY as much as under other coats. This is a blessing because there's no way I could layer under this coat. I'm normally a medium, and if I had to layer, I'd have to buy an xl.I also find that when I undo the lower zip, to allow for use in the saddle or bending, getting the zip back in place is cumbersome and I have stepped out of it rather than muck around on more than one occasion.On the whole, I think it will be my go-to coat until it dies, and that's saying something when the weather up on the mountains in winter is often in single digits or negative numbers. A few more tweaks and it's a grand slam, SmartPak!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from not quite as expected This is a nice jacket but I have my doubts that it will live up to my expectations. the jackets material and insulation are much thinner than I had hoped for. We have not had it long enough to experience how warm it will actually be for the winter use that it's intended for. On the positive side, it is a sharp looking jacket that I will enjoy wearing even if it's only in milder weather.
