    Simple. Perfect.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I love how simply and functional this jacket is. It will keep you warm and dry all day on the mountain. It's not too bulky like a lot of other ski jackets that make you feel like a marshmallow. A great winter jacket for the price.

    Super cute!

    Got the rich wine color and it's beautiful! Originally purchased a medium but had to return it to a different company and bought the large from Backcountry at an even better price. I wear a medium but had to get the large to be able to get it over my hips and chest. I have curves so the jacket would not come over my hips. Large looks big on me and the sleeves are definitely longer than they should be but I still LOVE IT! I hope it works great on the ski slopes.

    Columbia Alpine Action OH Jacket

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    This jacket is very nicely made. Because of the snug fit I won't be able to do any layering so unfortunately, I'm going to have to return it. It's a shame because it really is a nice jacket.

    Ski season

      I purchased this jacket for the upcoming ski season and got a chance to test this out the other day while messing around learning to snowboard for the first time. I am 5'2" and about 150lbs and I sized up to a large to adjust for wearing winter layers underneath. This fit perfectly with a t-shirt and a hoodie underneath, and still had just enough room for proper arm/body movement. The arms have a thin layer that goes around your hands with a thumbhole, which was super handy for keeping my jacket sleeves in place while putting gloves on and off. I had never had a jacket that had that feature before and I loved it. There are two standard side pockets on the outside of the jacket and one inside pocket on the left chest which perfectly fit my ski lift pass, ID and any cards I was carrying and my chapstick. There is also an extra snap closure to keep the bottom inside hem taught around your waist to keep any snow from getting inside the jacket.

      After testing this out during many a fall while learning a new snow sport, I have to say this is a great jacket! The only con, and it isn't really a con for me, is that it is a single layer jacket. There isn't a separate jacket and shell that you zip together. Personally I prefer that because it feels less bulky. I would highly recommend this product if you are in the market for a new ski/snowboarding jacket.

      I bought these for my sisters birthday and this is her review:
      "I ordered a small and I'm 5'3", 120ish lbs. I love my coat! Love the red wine color and it's super warm and I love the many pockets around the coat. The coat is also not very bulky which is another feature I like about it. I should be able to layer two thinner shirts under the coat (probably a bulky sweatshirt won't work, but long sleeved shirts will be just fine.) My one complaint is that the sleeves are a tiny bit too short for me (which is unusual because I'm normally battling sleeves being too long) so the thumb holes on the end of the sleeve are a bit too tight for my liking. However overall I love my coat and I'm excited for to use it!"

      Exactly what I was looking for

      Have been looking for a purple ski jacket for a while now. Love this jacket. It’s very warm and extremely comfortable. Love the dark purple color.

      Really nice

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Nice jacket! I bought a medium to allow some extra room for layering. I like the coloring of the Raspberry a lot. The pockets are useful as well.

      Solid buy with interesting sizing

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small

      Size: 2-4 top, 6-8 bottoms
      Used in: 6F to 40F, walking with some pretty fierce wind and snowmobiling.

      Findings: This kept out the snow, wind, and cold wonderfully, but I would have liked more pockets. Also, I'm not sure it would do well if it had been much colder, or if there had been more wind on the chillier days. On the plus side, I didn't overheat when I wore it near the 40s (with human-bowling wind).

      Fit: I bought a small in Iris and a medium in Black to test the colors and the size, since I'm heavy-bottomed and others said it ran small. I honestly found the fit comparable--both were comfy, with enough room to wear underarmour and a thick sweater underneath, with some room to spare.

      The main difference seemed to be in the circumference of neckpiece. If you don't like a snug neckpiece or have a thicker neck, small is not for you. Also, the optional hand warmer thingies were very warm, but felt a little short compared to the jacket's sleeve. When I wore it, it felt it felt like it was trying to pull my hand back in, even though the sleeves are almost too long for me.

      Style: My clothing needs to be functional and look good, and this did both. It wasn't too sporty or bulky, so I felt like I could still rock the streets AND be comfortable. That said, I ended up keeping the black instead of the Iris, which was a little...middle-aged looking.

      Warm and comfortable!

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Extra Small
      • Height: 5'1"

      Love this jacket - It's versatile, keeps me super warm and love all the pockets!

      Good fit, nice and warm

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'1"
      • Weight: 115lbs

      I live in Wisconsin and today I wore this coat in -39 degree wind chill cleaning 3 or 4 inches of snow of my car, and I was toasty! I usually wear my fleece underneath for extra warmth and it fits well with layers, I bought a small and I'm 5'1 115lbs. I would recommend. Ive also been complimented on the foam green color of the coat by a classmate; it's an unusual color but pretty without being an overbearing color.

      Soft and Snuggly

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'0"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      I love my down jacket and my Carhartt, but when temps plummet and the northern Idaho weather vacillates from rain to blizzard, to frozen wasteland, I'm glad I have a proper Columbia again.

      Comfort: A+
      The collar, inside of the hood, and the inside of the hand pockets are SO soft, bunny-soft without all that pesky shedding of fur.
      The length is right. This is a jacket, not a parka so I'm not sitting on the coat when I drive. However, my ass isn't hanging out in the cold, cold wind either. Columbia strikes a happy medium here when a lot of other jackets miss the mark.
      This is the first time I've had a powder skirt in a jacket without constantly being aware of its presence. Well played Columbia, well played.

      Pockets: A+
      2 zippered hand pockets
      1 outside chest pocket (taped zipper) large enough for iphone SE
      1 inside zippered chest pocket, also large enough for phone w/ headphone buttonhole
      1 inside drop-in pocket - this one is mesh & has an elastic top, I might not trust my keys in here, it seems suited for a hat or gloves
      1 left wrist pocket

      The Alpine has 2 slash pockets with ultra-soft lining that does a good job keeping my hands warm even when I forget my gloves. Also, the zippers on the pockets don't bother my wrists when I'm slouching about with my hands in my pockets - excellent.

      Zipper: A+
      Primary zip is plastic with large teeth so it's quiet, snag-free, & easy to operate.

      Thumbhole Thingies: A++
      So. Comfortable.
      Thin, double layer of stretchy, synthetic material wards off the chill & fits perfectly - even under gloves!
      The thumbholes are engineered properly - they don't inhibit taking off or putting on the jacket. I could write poetry here but I'll spare you - that's how good these thumbholes are.

      Fit: A+
      The fit is quite attractive, the Alpine nips in at the waist and achieves a feminine look that isn't always present in outerwear.

      Sizing: B
      The Alpine might run a little small. I'm quite short at 5' and the sleeve length is good for me even in Medium.
      I wear a small in Basin and Range and Under Armour but I chose a Medium Alpine to accommodate layers. I've worn a hoodie with a down vest under the Alpine and did not find it too snug.


      I can't believe I went years without a proper ski jacket, it's so nice to be snugged up in coat that truly suits all winter weather conditions.

      Too snug

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'0"
      • Weight: 128lbs

      I'm 5 feet & weight 128. I normally wear a size small with room to wear a sweater. But I read reviews that this ran smaller, so I ordered a medium. Fits a bit snug, especially around the wait. Granted, I have a small muffin top...:) But I really like it. I live in Alaska & today's temp is 21 degrees. Felt the cold on my arms as I was driving my ATV, & it's not that windy. Maybe blowing 18 knots. But still. Don't think it'll be warm enough for the minus 20 temps we get this winter..Also, the neck feels bulky, if I don't zip it up all the way. But when I do, it feels tight.

      Love it

      This jacket is wonderful. Wow, it's warm. I snowshoe in Yosemite National Park, Sequoia/Kings Canyon, and in the Sierra National Forest in the 30's snowstorm or not. The option to pull the inner sleeve down and around your thumb/hand is nice. The pockets are perfect. The one thing I wished I had researched was arm vents which it does not have. This is minor to me as I just vent the main zipper instead. I'm very pleased with this purchase. I may have 2 long sleeve base layers and a tank top underneath @ times or 1 long sleeve base with a tank top(recent snowstorm/was perfect). I think a medium would be needed if you have these layers and a sweater. I don't want that bulk and prefer to use thin base layers for comfort. I am athletically toned/34D.

      Love this coat!!!!

      Fits great, true to size. love the color. Pockets pockets pockets. A++ Warm, slimming (no balk) hood removable- it's perfect!

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: M
      • Height: 5'8"

      I gave this as a gift to my sister, and she wears it every day. It's warm and very slimming. She's tall making the cut a bit short... and snug. But she loves it!

      Great jacket!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I was looking for something that would keep me warm, but also had a removable hood and this jacket is perfect so far. It has been plenty warm with only a light layer on underneath and has kept me completely dry in the rain. The fit is about what you would expect with enough room to have some layers on underneath for the colder part of winter.

      Pros:
      True to size and not too bulky
      20K waterproof
      Removable hood
      Plenty of pockets
      Cuffs with thumb holes keep the sleeves from riding up

      Cons:
      No arm pit vents
      Powder skirt cannot be removed
