I haven't really put the Columbia Belle Star through the ringer but so far, it's treating me well. I like the liner a lot, it's cozy and warm. Wind protection is great as I don't feel too much cutting through. Style wise, it's not much to speak of really. I think the only thing I would really change about it would be the length. I tend to prefer my jackets a bit longer - I'd rather have more of my backside cover up. Mind you, it's not because I have a bad looking backside. I just like to make sure the parts near the top of my pants and the bottom of my jacket are toasty just like the rest of me.
