Rated 5 out of 5 by jacket Fantastic coat my grandson loved it,he is now set for the Mi. winter September 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied Very happy with this purchase Information was very true and helpful Jacket looks great and quality is excellent Overall could not be happier & my grandson loves it June 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 10 yr old son LOVES this coat I bought this coat for my son as he just outgrew another columbia jacket i had bought him last winter. Dang how they grow so fast. He loves that this one fits comfortably and has the omni heat in it and of course he was overjoyed to know he was getting green as it is his favorite color. The sizing is great as I got a L and there is plenty of growing room and the fact that the sleeves grow with the kids is a great bonus. I would recommend this coat to others as it is light weight but extra warm because of the omni heat technology....no more big overly bulky coats in my house December 19, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Zipper too frail for a kids jacket The coat is warm enough, but runs a little small. There will be no need to use the let out function on the arms, as I see my kid out growing the shoulders and chest long before the arms are too short. The biggest disappointment is the zipper which is a very fine tooth size, too small for an active jacket. It pulls open far too easily. December 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Jacket I love my Columbia coat with Omniheat reflective, so I went with this for my 3yo for winter sports and everyday wear. His grandparents picked out a bulky designer coat which was just too puffy and not waterproof. (We had a hard time buckling him into his car seat with it on, and thus he did not like to wear it.) This Alpine Action Jacket seems perfect. It's warm and waterproof/breathable without the bulk. My son can move freely in it, ride his bike, fit in the car seat, etc. The hoodie and chin protector give great coverage in cold, windy conditions. And it's comfy enough that he likes to wear it. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars for function is I'd like to see a larger, more kid friendly zipper. He likes to practice zipping it himself, and a larger zipper would make it less frustrating. I'll be interested to see if the Outgrown system will allow him to fit in it next year as well, but for this year we love it. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome Love it. Stylish and comfortable and extremely warm November 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by definitely warm! This jacket is warm. After trying it on, in less than five minutes, my son was complaining of being hot and was nearly sweating! It's cute and has lots of nice extra pockets inside and out to store things. Overall very happy and I have high expectations for this jacket this winter. So, we'll see! Oh my son is 5, about 45-50 inches tall and this jacket was perfect. Next year, he may need a bigger size. October 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great! Very warm! Love Columbia! We pass them down to younger brothers and sisters and they always hold up! February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket!! The jacket is very nice, great quality! I love the function of this jacket and my son can grow with it. I also must say the minute my 8 year old tried it on, he loved it!! Fast shipping, always a plus! January 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great coat! Bought this coat for my grandson who is very active. He loved it. The fit was perfect and the functionality is perfect for life in Colorado whether he is in the mountains or just playing on the playground. Very well constructed and has some style. Great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Winter coat This will be a gift this Christmas for our Grandson. He told his Mom the coat he saw on line. The ordering was quick, easy and delivery was prompt and without delay. We're looking forward to the look on his face when he opens up his gift. Thanks for a wonderful and reliable product! December 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product was true to size and well constructed. I used the size guide that said that the XXS was equivalent to a size 4/5 and that sizing was correct . December 17, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by cut the cut of the jacket is not like the previous coat I purchased. Same coat. Old coat sz 14/16. New coat sz 18. New coat cut very narrow and did not fit. Don't understand sizing. Vey disappointed! My son really wanted this coat. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My son loves it My son loves this parka. It is very warm, and a bit longer in length so it feels extra warm compared to a jacket that ends at the waist. Very happy with this purchase! December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great jacket Ordered this jacket for my 13 year old son. Fit was perfect with a little room to grow. Color - the green was very bright and will show up easy on the ski slopes. Super quick delivery. I was very surprised how fast Columbia sent this to us. Very satisfied!! December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit, lightweight but very warm! My son usually won't wear a coat appropriate for the weather because of bulk and it restricts his ability to play. This coat is lightweight but the reflective inside keeps him warm. The extendable sleeves give me the hope he will be able to wear it for more than one fall/winter season. If not, the high quality will ensure his little brother will inherit it. Great coat! November 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This jacket is amazing I bought this coat for my son, he hates big bulky jackets but when we tried on this coat in the store he fell in love with it. We go in online because of the color choices available. Even though the coat isnt bulky it still keeps him warm with the omni heat, plus as a parent i love the fact that it has a grow with me option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by boys jacket I have bought Columbia jackets for my self and my boys in the past. They hold up well, and are very warm. I also love the Omni heat clothing as well and highly recommend it. October 30, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poorly designed Although generally a fan of Columbia products, unfortunately this jacket is poorly designed and as a result the cause of endless frustration for my son. The integrated hood is the source of the problem. It is too short to wear comfortably, and when not worn makes the neck opening too tight to zip all the way up or comfortably wear a neckwarmer underneath. It is very disappointing when you expect to get 2 years out of a product, and the wearer can't stand wearing it at all. This is a basic design error and should not have happened. I should mention that my son, if anything, is smaller than the average nine year old so neither height nor girth are the issue here. I can only imagine that the problem is worse for an average-size kid. January 17, 2015
