Women’s Alpine Action™ Omni-Heat™ Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED MY JACKET I bought this for myself and as a plus-sized women, it's very difficult finding winter clothes that fit just right. This jacket was just right not too tight around the wait (as my belly is bigger after having 3 kids) i was able to zip it all the way up (because I have full-sized breasts) and it kept me warm, dry, and comfortable when we went to the snow to do some snow tubing and snowboarding! And yes, it looks cute. It did NOT make me look frumpy =)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but the hips! Overall, this is a great jacket. Good fit but can't do many layers (2 max for me); I love the extra fabric that comes out to cover your wrists (great when it's cold and windy); I ordered "emerald" but the color looks like a lovely turquoise color. I'm a big gal, with good hips, and even though I love this jacket, it can be a little tight in the hip area though, so just an FYI

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passed the Minnesota Test A small issue I've had so far is the fabric on the back between the shoulders bulges out. This might be to account for activity using your arms or simply for people with a large bust, but it initially looked really silly to me. The hips also felt snug to me at first but I think in comparison to my last coat, it is just a slimmer fit. The neck area is a bit constricting for me. Hopefully the more I break-in the coat, the more flexible the neck will become. If I'm not wearing a scarf and my hair is out of the way, it feels great. But I typically have my hair down and a scarf on which, when fully zipped, makes me a feel a little bit like I'm wearing a neck brace. Otherwise, the coat stands up beautifully to the MN winter so far. I haven't worn it in one of the super cold days yet *knock on wood,* but its been well-below freezing every day that I've had it and the coat keeps me very warm. I've taken it through snow and sleet -- a HUGE step up from my last coat that was 0% waterproof. I stayed super dry every time. I appreciate the internal media pocket so my phone doesn't shut off from the cold while in an exterior pocket, however the two breast pockets seem to be a bit lower on me that I would like. Perhaps the size I got is intended for someone a bit taller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Alpine Action Omi-Heat Ski Jacket, style# 156224 After using a Columbia jacket for more than 15 years, I thought it was time to upgrade to a new model. I am an advance skier (3 Diamond slopes) Skiing in weather that is -10 Celsius (14F) , the Alpine Action Omi-Heat jacket is a true disappointment! The hood doesn't fit the helmet, the sleeve cuffs are to narrow, and worse of all the jacket doesn't keep you warm despite wearing a base and a mid layer. I regret buying the jacket and will need to go back to my old and reliable one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Love this jacket but it does fit smallish. I am not as comfortable if I have thick layers underneath like a hoodie. However, if you have thin layers, you will stay warm in even the coldest weather. I love the built in half glove things with the thumb hole. I find it provides just enough coverage. Also love the fleece lined pockets. They get nice and toasty if you keep your hands in them or especially if you use hand warmers like I do. If you tend to wear bulkier layers, I would strongly recommend going up a size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from warm but not heavy Warm Coat with enough room to layer on really cold day-- I like to wear underarmour hoodies and the coat fits great with them--also fits with sweaters with cuddle duds underneath --very nice if you like to be able to move around and not feel like you are suffocating or be constricted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat! Love the fit and the colors. It was true to size. My only complaint is the hand/thumb part doesn't stretch well and I end up ripping it when I reach for something.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy the Lhotse for warmth My goals with this purchase: (1) A coat that’s comfortably warm over two long-sleeve shirts in 20-degree weather, and that I can wear over a sweatshirt in colder temps. Something I can quickly toss on for three-a-day dog walks and numerous errands. (2) Velcro sleeve adjustment, a necessity as I have short arms. (3) Something flattering. (4) Versatile, easy-to-keep clean main color, i.e., black or dark gray. (5) Collar color that does not drain color from face or need frequent washing. I prefer fleece linings, but who wants to remove and wash a lining every time its baby blue collar shows a little dirt? I ordered the Alpine Action in a 1X, and found it too large for my build (38-35-45). It might have been more flattering in an XL, but I decided the reflective lining wasn’t warm enough. In 45-degree weather in high humidity, with a couple layers, I could still feel a bit of a chill. For vigorous activity it might be fine, but for a brisk dog walk it was lacking. Based on the reviews regarding warmth, I switched to an XL Lhotse Interchange. More flattering. Insulated lining could stand to be a little warmer, but it was sufficient over a single long-sleeve tee in 35-degree weather. And I think the “pit vents” could improve motion and comfort when layering over a sweatshirt. A feature I appreciate: If you unzip the faux fur collar trim, the zipper on the hood stays hidden. I’m keeping the Lhotse and returning the Alpine. See Lhotse review for a photo of that item.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Ordered several sizes larger than normal after reading reviews and coat was still too small. Sizing is way off. It cost me $12.71 to return the darn thing! Won't order from Columbia ever again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stylish jacket. I bought this jacket as ski jackets are normally very warm. This one is not, because of the "Breathable" fabric means the cold gets through the sleeves when there is any breeze. Maybe waterproof but disappointed in not being warm unless you already warm. Other when that, the coolness in the sleeves it is a nice jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new jacket! I can't remember the last time I had a real winter jacket but with recent below 0 wind chills in the last 2-3 years I decided that I really needed one this year and I decided to treat myself. I'm so happy I did! I normally would wear a 2x but I had to go up a size and i am still able to wear a hoodie or a sweater underneath. I love that it has to many pockets outside and in. I got the black one which isn't really black it's more of a charcoal grey but it still looks great. It also has these hand sleeves which I find handy so the sleeves doesn't move up in case your ever reaching for something. So far I've been kept warm and I really love my new jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this coat! I received this coat last week and since then it has been really cold in Minnesnowta. It has been awesome. Very well made and warm. I love all of the pockets!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Pit Vents?!! This is a great jacket, seems like a nice level of warmth for those colder days on the slopes. Cut is nice and the powder skirt stays in place through the full range of motion BUT, prepare to sweat on those warmer days as there are no pit vents. Regardless of how breathable it's advertised to be, it can never make up for vents. Sadly, I've had to return this jacket as it isn't suited for true skiers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket if you know what you're looking for! It can get well below freezing here in Denver. I was looking for something that would keep me warm as I walk around while at the same time keep the wind and snow out. This jacket is thermal reflective, meaning it keeps your body heat inside. This is great as long as you're moving around or for someone like me that generates a lot of heat naturally! If you're not moving around and not your own heater, then you'll need to layer if you want to stay toasty warm. The hood could be better. I found that the shape/structure of it was annoying. It does stay in place though. Overall, great purchase to wear alongside a fleece for those especially chilly days!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alpine Omni Heat Jacket arrived quickly and I was surprised at how light weight it is. It hasn't been cold enough to wear yet but my cousin noticed that the velcro on the cuff was coming off...so I'll have to get that fixed...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Warm. Nice jacket that is exactly like the product picture. As reviewers recommended I too ordered a size up and it fits comfortably and with room for a layering should the weather get frigid. Nifty inner elasticated hip band with snaps to hug the body and stop the wind penetrating. Light and comfy but warm. Smart and fashionable with great color selection. The only complaint I have with this jacket which is really well made is that it would benefit from a two way heavier weight zipper. Not the single nylon zipper that it has. For the price of this item this should be addressed. Quick and very reasonable shipping cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovin' it! Run a little small in the arms only! In action it's really keeping me warm. But if I'M in Montreal waiting for the bus, sitting for more than 15 minutes I have to wear a midlayer because I'M getting cold slowly but for sure... I normally wear XL or 18 and I bought 2x to be able to put a midlayer under. Nice choice!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice but runs big This jacket is beautiful. I love the color combo, the look of the fabric, the shaped fit, all the pockets and the nice seams. However, the jacket runs quite large compared to the size chart. I normally wear a 16, sometimes 18 in streetwear, and I have a 49" bust measurement. I ordered a 2x based on it running small, but I found the 2x to be huge. The waist is low, the arm holes and shoulders are too big, even the bust, which is normally snug on me, was very roomy. I have to exchange this jacket for a smaller size. Oftentimes I don't bother with exchanging but this jacket is so nice it will be worth the hassle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sporty! Alas, my jacket is not likely to see any "Alpine Action", but I sure look and feel like a skier when I'm wearing it! I love the all of the slimming and cool features of this jacket. Thank you, Columbia for putting a PU zippered pocket on the front! Okay, I don't really know what a PU zip means, but it seems to be a super-rare feature on plus-sized jackets and it looks so darned cool. This jacket looks so sporty, fits like a dream, if not a tad snug (go up a size if you wear sweaters!), and looks like a super high-end coat costing twice its price. Dear Columbia, thank you and please bring this back next year in some super fun colors or patterns and I might just show it off in or near a ski resort...on my way to a mall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yippee! I am so thrilled with this jacket! For the first time in years I have a stylish jacket in my size , most jackets made for my size and shape are frumpy well not this coat ,it's cute & fashionable that is also drumroll Warm!!! I love the colour! I got nocturnal and hot coral the coral was brighter in the hood area than I anticipated but not in a bad way and in the front zipper pocket the colour is more muted so it's perfect! I just received my jacket today & went for a walk wearing it this evening and it monsoon rained with extreme wind ,I stayed warm & dry ! This coat repels water ! Can't wait for snow and skiing ! Thank you so much Columbia for making this in my size which is 2x and I'm Apple shaped with large chest and the fit is perfection !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I live in rural Alaska and my mode of transportation is a quad. I needed something that is wind and waterproof. I normally wear a 1x but purchased the 3x based on reviews and the fact I wanted to be able to wear a hoodie or fleece underneath to make sure I stay warm. This size was perfect so I could layer if needed and still have room and be comfortable. This last week I was able to put the jacket to the test as we have had nothing but rain and high wind. This jacket exceeded my expectations. It not only keeps me dry and warm but it absolutely wind proof also. I am 100% positive it will hold up the same once the snow hits. I also love the style, color and fit of the jacket and o course all the zippered pockets. I would love to see Columbia make this jacket with some reflective stripes....that would make it even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever Jacket I am very impressed with the quality of this jacket. The detail is very well made and I love the sleeve cuffs with the half glove that keeps the sleeve in place all the time. The fit is perfect. I rec'd my jacket 5 days earlier than expected. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Bought this jacket for my daughter who spends a lot of time outdoors. She had owned a Columbia jacket before and loved it. She gave it to a charity and was searching for a new one. She was so happy with the new one I purchased one for myself also. Awesome product

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket I am normally a size 16, but this coat runs small around the hips. It is nice in person and great material, so from a 1X i have to go up to a 2X. This surely makes me feel even more self conscious to know I have to go even more up a size, because name brand companies only make these jackets for skinny no booty girls, even for something that states its Plus Size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking jacket The jacket is nice looking, fits good. My only two wishes for it, is that it to be warmer and longer. I'm 5'11" and I know I have a long torso, but it's unfortunately a tad short for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I like everything about this jacket, especially the omni heat feature and the cleverly placed pockets. The omni heat makes it warm without bulk. I would buy another in a slightly longer back, as this one just comes to the back of the butt. Only feature I might add is double zipper so you could open the coat around the hips while riding in the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Gotta Love It! I bought this Jacket to prepare for the worst belated winter. At work I have to be outside shoveling and plowing as needed. And all I had under was a thermal and a tee shirt. And let me tell you the first snowstorm New York had this year I was outside til 3:00am and I was warm. Normally I wear a XL to a 1X , I bought a 2X and it was perfect. I Love all the pockets inside and out. Its very form fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Jacket The jacket is warm, stylish and comfortable on and off the slopes. As for size, the jacket in the chest and arm area are good, but the jacket is a bit short, however, I am a taller person. Recommend this jacket to those loving winter sports.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Learning to love it or list it I ordered a larger size as recommended by others. Fit in hip area was OK - but can't wear a sweater under this garment. Has to be re-adjusted after rising from sitting. Sleeves and upper torso large..too much bulk around the neck area...a problem when driving. It is warm and lightweight - so there is that. Not sure of the functionality of the inner wind-blocker - it bunches up when driving or walking- may need to cut it out for a better fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice jacket, but not very warm This jacket is not as warm as I expected, but has a nice outer shell for blocking wind. Need to layer underneath if you want to be warm in temperatures below 30 degrees or so unless you are doing a vigorous activity. I normally wear a 2x or size 20, but ordered 3x based on other reviews. Is roomy enough to fit needed layers for warmth underneath. 2x would have fit if extra layers weren't needed. Would have expected a warmer jacket for the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Color is gorgeous and bright. Very true to picture. I ordered the purple. I wear a 20-22 ontop because of big boobs and the 3x fitted well with room around the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Well after reading everyone else's reviews, I ordered this jacket. Mind I'm 5'7" @ 225 lbs. so I ordered the 3X thinking it would be just right. Well when I received it, it was way too big. I chose to give it to my sister who is 5'4" @ 250 lbs. and more bustier than I am and it fit her perfectly. So I'm off to order a 2X for myself. But love the jacket, very light weight, super nice material and color. Plenty of pockets. The sleeves are my favorite with the thumb holes and attached to inner sleeve.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed with warmth of jacket My son bought me this jacket for Christmas. Was so excited as I have two other Columbia jackets that I've had for 18 and 20 years. The new Omni Heat does not keep me warm. Was very disappointed. Like the old style fleece lining in the older Columbia jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well and keeps you toasty I like that the coat gives you enough room to move without restriction while also not being boxy or baggy. There is some movement noise, but it is not obnoxiously whoosh-whooshy. There are plenty of pocket options and most peripheral parts are adjustable, which is nice. The thumb loops is something I appreciate in layers, but have never had in a coat. I do like them, but your wrists can be crowded if you have a lot of long layers. The hood is nice, but I do find it a tad bulky in the back and catch myself tilting my head forward, so that's a thing to consider. I appreciate that I can remove the hood. The lining and interior of this coat do an amazing job of keeping you warm. So far I have greatly appreciated being both dry and warm this year. Additionally, the slight pattern in color [creates a heathered appearance] makes the coat seem less boring, but not garishly different. It's very subtle, but I like it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from anonymous I purchased this coat to wear for our harsh winters and I am so glad I did. It does run small so if you normally wear a 2x (like me) you should purchase the 3x. It is so very warm and has so many pockets. I also love how it is more of a contoured feminine coat so it actually looks cute too!
