Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket - Toasty and Perfect fit At 6'4" and 190lbs, most winter jackets fit like a tent, but the Large-Tall size is perfect. The warmth is great for midwest winters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Men's Alpine Action Jacket Tall / Steens Mountain Full Zip Fleece jacket The Alpine Action Jacket is warm and snug. The stiching looks clean and all zippers, velcro and snaps are fastened well. Though, for me the sleeves are a touch long and collar a bit high. Knowing this the jacket is still great and I am keeping it. The Steens Mountain full zip fleece 2.0 is also snug but great, like them both. Colour and quality is good and I have always worn Columbia, when I have had the opportunity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Perfect for my husband who is a big man. It was long enough to cover his upper legs. It kept him very warm & fit comfortably for our North West vacation adventures in February.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for all Occasions Except Really Cold Days This coat was an easy purchase online, it seemed to be enough "warmth", however you can never tell the rating based on the description. I thought I would give it a shot. While I did end up returning in the end, this coat is for "active" winter sports, i.e. snowboarding, etc. as the description states. It's not going to keep you warm just standing around. You have to keep moving or hope the omni-heat does the remaining. I ended up trying an XL vs the XXL I originally ordered. Once I had it on, there was a large gap below, so I felt it ran slightly large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit for my tall athletic husband Hubby is 6'2" and is fit with an athletic build. Regular size jackets are usually ill-fitting - too wide or too short, and sometimes both! This jacket fits him perfectly, just the right length all over, including the sleeves, and the right width. It's lightweight without bulk, and keeps him warm. Highly recommend for tall, fit guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Exactly what I was looking for - not too heavy or bulky, but incredibly warm. My first use was in single digit temps with no issues. I like the look of the material. I am 6'5" 230 and the XLT fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit and Lightweigt Sleeve length is perfect. Better to have jacket sleeve length a little longer, than too short. Columbia "gets it" and understands the importance of sleeve length for Tall people better than competitors. This newer technology is lightweight and warm, without the bulk of down-filled jackets. Love the front chest pocket for my cell phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great single layer jacket I bought this for my husband, as a gift. He loves it, and so do I. Very warm without being bulky. A single zipped layer, with a hood. Great for wintry weather, and easy to get on and off. He's not thrilled with the reflective liner, but it doesn't show while wearing it, and that is just his personal taste. The exterior fabric has a light printed texture to it, rather than just a flat single color, which is nice. Would highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coat I bought this coat for my son great that it comes in large and tall sizes. It is a good fit and not too bulky. We originally thought because of the special inside lining which looks like foil it would not be warm. He finds it very warm and comfortable to wear and is well made as are all Columbia coats. More than pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Complaints Before I found this jacket, I searched for a few weeks looking at all my local stores, and sites for a jacket that fit. Having no luck at all, I decided to perform my quest for a new jacket based off of the manufacturers sites. I came to this site, found this jacket and really liked the look and features of it. I read most of the reviews of this product before buying it, and noticed a theme to them. This product is what it says it is. Great quality, nice fitting, and a great choice for us larger people. Me being 6'3 and 300lbs, I was starting to give up on my search and just deal with only wearing hoodies all winter. So thank you Columbia for making a jacket that fits us larger than life people!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big, Tall & Perfect! My husband is 6'3" and 305lbs. Im always having an issues finding clothes that are Big and Tall. He wears a 3XL Tall in shirts/hoodies from other companies, so i ordered a 4XL Tall so he could wear one under it if he wanted. He said he probably couldve done fine with 3XL Tall but he liked the extra room for moving around he didnt feel constricted and it came down low enough that he could raise his arms and it still covered his butt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad we chose this coat My husband is 6'5" and weighs 230 so I ordered 2 XLT. The fit is perfect and even covers his arms which has always been an issue when shopping for him. The material is very attractive and the warmth is unbelievably great considering it is so light compared to other coats. Definitely a wise choice. Highly recommended.
