Men’s Alpine Action™ Jacket - Big is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Light as it is Warm! This product screams technology. From the liner to the pockets, this isn't any plain coat. I'm a big guy and big jackets aren't necessarily hard to come by, but finding a good one is! This jacket isn't "good", though... it's GREAT! The sleeve linings snug to your wrist to make up for any gap gloves might leave. Love the removable hood and how the velcro hides the fact that it's removable. If this jacket was stolen, I'd have another one ordered before I'd file a police report. I'm not going to recommend this jacket, I am going to INSIST that if you want a combination of style, comfort, functionality, and warmth, you get your hands on this coat! But not mine... because you'd have a tough time pulling that off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great WARM Winter Coat! This is an excellent coat! Just wish it had Pit Vents! This is my third Columbia coat! Love Omni heat and Omni Tech! This coat keeps you warm without weighing you down! Its warmth without the weight! The FIRST Columbia jacket that I purchased was a lightweight jacket with Omni Heat and Omni Tech it had Pit Vents! It was the BEST jacket I have EVER owned! I could walk into a store, start to over heat and unzip the vents without ever taking off my jacket! Fantastic!!!! ***PLEASE, PLEASE, Columbia add Pit Vents or Side Vents to ALL the jackets and parkas. Any activity can cause overheating, VENTS are such a nice perk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I have been a Columbia fan for years and I thought I would try one of their jackets this winter. I love the warmth this jacket provides, it's not only waterproof but it provides a great sheild from the wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Jacket ever!!!! I got the jacket 3 weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier with it. It keeps me warm and dry and is very lightweight. I got the graphite / super blue color and I LOVE THE COLORSSS I’m super happy I chose this color .The quality is second to none. You get the quality that is expected from a columbia jacket. I highly recommended!!!!! Thanks Columbia for not dissapointing me and for having a big and tall line for guys like me, unlike other brands. THANK YOU!!! Will definitely buy more jackets from you this my second one and whenever I go into the market for another jacket Columbia will be my first option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fine Columbia product This is my third Columbia winter coat, and it meets the expectations I had for it. I'm a big guy, and it fits perfectly. I appreciate the little touches like the inner cuff and snow skirt, and the many usable pockets. We've already hit below zero wind chills here in the Adirondacks, and it's kept me comfortable. Definitely would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous coat Love the coat. Fashionable yet functional. Very warm and the extra snow snug is perfect for those active in winter. Would only purchase Columbia omni-heat coats for our harsh cold weather in winter. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat even for big guys Always a challenge finding a warm, functional coat that fits as a plus size guy. This coat is great and looks good too. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mom’s relief My eldest son is a big guy, 6’ tall, and needed a new winter coat. I looked at other jackets, but this one appealed to both of us. When it arrived, it was exactly as advertised in the coloring and it fits him well, with room for a sweater if he wants one. The omniheat reflectors keep him warm enough to just wear a t-shirt!!! We’re very happy with this coat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice winter coats I'm a tall and big guys often had difficulty to find a big and tall winter coats. Alpine Action jacket from Colombia is a perfect fit up to 6XL I can finally wear a jacket that closes on front and that Is comfortable wearing, great desing and comfortable nothing much to ask!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Jacket I haven't had a chance to wear in winter yet, but I love the way the jacket fits and feels. Very light and the color is nice, seems well made. Will update in winter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very warm but light Very warm but light. Work well in cold or wet weather. A little warm for warm weather. Like how it wraps around waist to keep warm and dry, same for arms/wrists. Plenty of zip up pockets. Hood also keeps your head nicely warm and dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fishing coat Timely arrival. Coat fits well and is really warm. I will be using it for early morning fishing trips in the Pacific NW and it will be cold and wet. This is the coat that I have searched for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! I normally wear a Big size 3XL. But, when ordering with Columbia, I have been selecting a size larger. This 4XL jacket fits perfectly, with room to wear multiple layers. It is a one piece insulated jacket I have been searching for. VERY warm but not bulky at all. Seals out the elements, important for New England winters. Removable hood is appreciated. Just an all around GREAT winter jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I purchased a jacket from LL Bean for my son for Christmas. I was pleased with the LL Bean jacket; however, it didn't fit. The available sizes would not work for him as well. I ordered this jacket from Colombia and was thrilled. It was a better price. The constructed was also better than the LL beans jacket. The color was great! I guess I'll start with Columbia first next time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent winter jacket, not a great ski jacket. Ok for wearing around town, but not great for the mountain. Lacking pit zips and significant waterproofing. I don't expect a lower end winter jacket to hold up to rain, but in 31F falling snow, this jacket was soaked through. As for pit zips, they seem like an inexpensive and standard addition to any ski jacket to help you stay comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mens Alpine Action Jacket This coat is thin and light weight. Don't let that be the deciding factor. This jacket has stood up to the elements thus far and it is surprisingly warm. I would recommend this jacket to anyone period. It has surpassed my expectations and then some. I love this coat !!!!!!!! 5 Stars Across The Board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter jacket This has been one of the best winter jackets I have ever bought. The omni heat liner is amazing I run very hot personaly and I find this jacket keeps me cool i dont over heat when inside or in my car and warm when I have it on outside. I would buy a jacket with omni heat again hands down... You wont be disiponted with this jacket for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Arms always cold I like the jacket, but my arms are always cold, my trunk stays nice and comfy, but unless I'm wearing long sleeves my arms are always cold, if the temp drops to low teens even with long sleeves my arms get cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's alpine jacket This jacket is awesome, extremely comfortable, sleek, and stylish. It keeps you warm and dry, i thought it was a little thin, but the technology of thermal reflective exceeded my expectations against all weather elements..I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and warm Got tired of the bulkiness of my big down filled jacket. This jacket give me lots of warmth but light weight. The first time I wore it, I thought it might not be warm enough, but within five minutes, the magic lining started to work and I was toasty warm.

I used the size chart and its a nice comfortable fit, with a hoodie underneath it will be perfect, looks amazing, very lightweight, would recommend this to everyone!
