Uses Winter, Ski / Snowsports


Uncompromising warmth and next-level style that’s built to move in—this performance men’s ski and snowboard jacket is inspired by our sponsorship of the 2014 U.S. Freestyle Ski Team in Sochi. Patented thermal reflective technology and our superior synthetic insulation keep you warm in the coldest conditions, while a blend of two types of waterproof-breathable fabric—a rugged cross-dye on the shoulders/bottom hem and a stretch-infused twill in the arms and body—delivers the perfect blend of mobility, style, and performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mens Parallel Grid Jacket I LOVE my new coat . It is extremely light weight yet the special heat lining keeps you very warm. Beautiful design and I have gotten a lot of comments about it. You have to like bright colors though as you will be seen on the mountains or anywhere very easily . February 19, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Men's Parallel Grid Jacket Good value for the price. It was a replacement for a Columbia down parka purchased in the 1970's which is still functional but somehow is a little small now. I was originally looking for another down parka but decided to try this new technology. It was a good choice. It does work better with layering where it was not as necessary with the down parka. All in all, it was a good decision on my part and seems to be well constructed. I would recommend this jacket to anyone. I would give it 5 stars if it had more outside upper chest pockets and a larger inside pocket. February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Xmas present for 15 year old son Ordered the jacket from the Columbia website and arrived in plenty of time for Xmas. Was exactly what my son wanted. We went skiing a few days after Xmas with temps in the 5 degree range (wind chill was -20 degrees). Jacket was plenty warm keeping in mind we layer to accommodate taking off clothing if needed (not needed this day). My son is 5'7" and just over 100lbs. A small would fit him perfect but I wanted him to be able to wear this for a long time so we bought a medium. The hood is large enough to wear a helmet but don't have a Go Pro mounted or it wont work. Also with the hood/helmet you cant really turn your head too well. Final thoughts... sizing was what I expected, jacket is very fashionable and it performed as expected in temps expected in December in Colorado. December 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect For starters, WOW. Completely satisfied with this coat, it is everything I hoped it would be and more. I can wear a t-shirt under it and am toasty in 15 degrees. Columbia nailed this one. December 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Cool Excellent purchase for my son(21). It was great that you mentioned that the size runs large. Otherwise I would have gotten a medium. The jacket is great looking, warm, lightweight and versital. The zipper construction is very cool. My son loves it and already wore it snowboarding. December 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Teenager Jacket Have trouble finding a jacket for a teenage boy that is both functional and design cool enough to merit a purchase. Bought this online (Adult Small) and he was actually excited for it to arrive. * Disappointment when it was too large. Considered returning it, but they don't make Youth sizes...... so we will closet this jacket until he grows into it. November 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This jacket is nice! In the past I have gotten XXL Columbia jackets and they have been a little big around the waist for me but XL was just a little to small so I needed XXL. Anyways this jacket fits nice, it's baggy and long enough that you can move in it but it has an athletic fit as well around your waist, it was designed for Olympic teams and I think that's a good thing. This is also the very first ski jacket that I have ever worn that I can fit the hood over my massive head/helmet. I love it! Just wish they would have brought back some of sweet neon/bright colors from last year, it's good to been seen on the slopes. October 14, 2014
