Year-round versatility for mountain-lovers.

You can take the Columbia Women's Whirlibird Interchange Jacket out on chilly shoulder season hikes as well as winter ski sessions. Zip out the insulated liner when you only need this jacket's Omni-Tech waterproof protection for rainy summer strolls, and zip the liner back in when it gets cold out. The liner's Omni-Tech thermal reflective lining uses silver dots to reflect your body heat back to you. The liner is also water-resistant to shed rainfall on autumn camping trips. An active fit makes sure you can move freely in the Whirlibird, and a drop-tail hem enhances your coverage from the wet world. The Whirlibird also features a powder skirt that snaps back when not in use, a removable hood, and adjustable cuffs for a secure fit.

Versatile and Toasty!

I ordered the Whirlibird Jacket (in red hibiscus plaid) and I love it! I haven't worn it on the slopes yet or in extreme cold conditions, but I can already tell it's a super warm jacket. I love that it has a zippable insert that's cozy and fashionable, so you can wear it alone or keep it in the jacket. The entire jacket is also very stylish and I'm obsessed with the color and pattern! I'm excited to snowboard in it and see how it does this winter.


Great Ski Jacket

  • Fit:True to size

Wore this right out of the box in Breckenridge. Wind chill below zero two days and never got cold! Lots of pockets for storage. Great jacket, great deal.

Did you have many layers under the jacket? It doesn't seem to be filled, so I am wondering if it banks of lots of layers under.


Good but Flawed

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'5"
    Size Purchased: Large

Warm jacket with a good fit. Loved the color, I was easy to find on the mountain. My main complaints are:
1) The Sleeves - don't secure well. The liner isn't very attached to the shell so it can be awkward when taking off the jacket. You need to pull from the sleeves.
2) The Zipper - is hard to zip/unzip, especially with gloves on. It's coated probably to be water proof but it can be challenging to line up.
3) The Powder Skirt - doesn't work when also using the liner.

Another review said they had a problem getting the hood over a helmet but I didn't have an issue.


Warm but some flaws

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'3"
    Size Purchased: S

I got this jacket in purple for a ski trip. I do not get to ski often so I did not want to spend a lot of money on a jacket. This jacket was very warm even with minimal layers on underneath while skiing in 10-20F degree temps! The purple color was pretty too. I ended up unzipping the tow layers so that the bottom layer would retain my body heat a little better. It kept me dry when it started snowing as well. My complaints are mainly: 1) the hood will not go over a ski helmet and the collar does not come up very high to cover your face, which sucks when it's snowing hard and you are skiing; 2) the main zipper was a little difficult to zip/unzip; 3) a bit boxy fit through the mid-section could be more flattering; 4) could use more pockets; and 5) the pitzips/vents only vent the shell and not the underneath layer. Overall, it served my purpose but it could be improved.


Almost a five star pick

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I absolutely love this jacket. The insulated liner is lightweight and plenty warm on it's own. Though when zipped together there is no possible way you can use the powder skirt that is attached to the outer shell.

Water Resistant . Breathable. Definitely a great pick for frigid temperatures, and playing in some powder.

Hi, can you still close the powder skirt when the liner is zipped in or does the liner get in they way of the closure?

They are made to be worn together like that so you should definitely be able to use the powder skirt with or without the liner!

You actually cannot use the powder shirt when the inner liner is attached :/

Reading reviews half says runs small & the other half runs true to size. I'm trying to decide between a sm or md? 5'5 and 125ibs

What is the center back length of a medium?
