Men’s Alpine Action™ Jacket - Tall is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ski Jacket Bought this coat for skiing. Used it in Utah this past winter. Kept me warm without overheating. Medium weight, long in the body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I purchased two of these jackets, one for my son and one for my husband. Both have been very pleased with the fit, style, and warmth. With the Omni heat, the jackets are plenty warm without any of the bulk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Jacket! First of all, I normally wear a XLT, and this jacket is the perfect size! It is long enough to cover my torso (I'm 6'6") and the arms have plenty of length to them too. Now to the functionality: this jacket is warm enough to wear during -20 degree F and yet light enough to wear at 40 degree F which makes it an October-April jacket here in MN! It looks very flashy, but not too much, just right :) It is also very nice wearing with a sweatshirt underneath and very easy to get on an off due to the Omni-Heat material on the inside, much easier than a fleece lined jacket that I had before. I will definitely be purchasing another jacket just like this when it comes to that time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks good on paper, not a warm coat I purchased this coat as a replacement for a 28 year old Nevica ski coat. While I like the design of the coat and appreciate the ample number of pockets, it is not even close to warm enough for me. This is especially surprising considering it has Omniheat. In my trials of the coat going outside in 20 degree weather, I was getting cold after being outside for just a few minutes, especially in the shoulders, arms, and lower waist. In comparison, I can be outside for well over 30 minutes in my Nevica coat without getting cold. Unfortunately, I will be returning this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ski jacket Been skiing for many years and this is the perfect ski jacket. Tons of pockets, goggle pocket, ski pass pocket on sleeve, phone pocket. Very warm and completely windproof, with a tough and strong outer shell. The snow skirt inside is great to keep the powder out. Overall a very functional and perfect ski jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket I bought this jacket to wear in colder weather, it is lightweight but extremely warm. The omi-heat is perfect for all conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Good Looking This parka is very warm, not bulky and lightweight. Would have preferred another outside breast pocket or another internal security pocket. Liked the Velcro/snap front which makes it easy to adjust ventilation with the front zipper partially open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love the quality of this jacket, also with the price right now you can't beat it! I got a 4xt and it fits perfect. I highly recommend this jacket. It will definitely keep you warm, and look good at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TG1414 Excellent Winter Coat. Omni Heat and Omni Tech are the BEST lightweight products on the market! ***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 Alpine Best jacket purchase! I had to recently replace my worn bugaboo. Did a lot of research and came across the alpine by Columbia. I couldn’t be happier. Light weight and extremely warm. Omni heat technology is a great addition! Thanks go out to the Columbia design team for hitting the mark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design I am 6’4 with long arms so I ordered a Tall size and couldn’t be happier with the fit and finish of this jacket. It was ordered for use as a alpine ski jacket but it is extremely versatile and will get a lot of everyday use. I like having a detachable hood as I do not like skiing with the wind catching a hood. The hood folds up neatly in a pocket or can be kept in your ski gear bag. I selected the blue color and have got a lot of compliments. Great job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great So Far!!! I'm an average weekend skier so I wanted a good quality jacket to keep me covered. I have only used the jacket once so far, but the quality is amazing. I'm a tall guy (6'6'') so the 2xT was a great choice. I have plenty of room to wear layers, and it is long enough that the spray skirt isn't leaving parts of my back exposed. I used it in weather pushing the teens. I was warm and toasty for the entire day. I used the vents to help keep the sweat at bay as well. All-around great jacket and I hope it stays that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and warm The jacket is very lightweight, not at all bulky. It does a very good job of block8ng the wind and keeping you warm. Sizing was great, fit perfectly. Not an artic expedition jacket but perfect for actual everyday life.
Date published: 2018-02-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Light BUT Very Warm This ski jacket has the shiny inner lining, it is capable to withstand extreme cold conditions. I wore only a t-shirt under this jacket in -20 weather, and I was warm. I am also 6’7” and got the XLT size, it is the best fitting jacket I have ever worn, long enough in the arms and waist. Highly recommend this item to anybody that works or has fun in cold weather conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! Bought this jacket for my trip to Glacier National Park to go snowmobiling. I was comfortable the entire time. It was in the 20's and with the wind chill probably a lot colder than that. I was dry and warm. I could not have asked for a better jacket.
Date published: 2018-01-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the reviews were true! I read all the reviews on this product before buying and they all gave it a 5 Star, which I agree whole heartily. Glad I had this jacket on a recent trip, woke up 2 mornings to 4 degrees and 11 degrees with wind chills way below zero. This coat is much lighter weight than I would have thought. Only complaint is that I wish it had more pockets, but that seems to be the style with all the brands now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bright and functional I was hoping for something a little bit warmer but it is adequate for most of the winter so far. Living in western NY, we have had some bitter temps! The omni shield doesn't really give me any extra heat that I can tell and that is disappointing. I do like the color of the coat, the fit is good and I think for the average winter, it will be fine. I don't know what I'll do when it's back to the sub zero temps, because this coat won't keep me warm enough and my goal was not to have to wear too many layers. Otherwise, I'm happy with the coat. The sleeves are long enough too, which is stellar! The hood is kind of large, but could fit a ski helmet I think. I don't ski. Overall, good coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Hard to find jackets that are long enough, but having the "Tall" option for this jacket is great. Haven't used it in the elements yet but appears to be well constructed, and the blue color is nice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpine Action Jacket Great Jacket! It is light, warm, wind resistant, fits well, comfortable, looks good, and it's high tech. I like everything about it. Columbia did a great job in the design. Everything is highly functional and the styling is great as well. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Jacket. Bought this jacket and one similar for work. I work night on the docks so it can get chilly. Originally bought a size bigger but had to return it and get a smaller size and it fit amazing. Comfortable, warm and movable. I was concerns with being able to move freely as I worked but the jacket was amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing coat!!! Excellent quality and amazingly comfortable. The inside has the shiny heat-shield instead of fleece or other liners, was a little worried it would cling to skin but is probably the most comfortable I’ve owned..... very easy to to get on and off and also very warm with none of the bulkiness or added weight like most coats. I usually take my coats off while driving but this lets u move around very easily without u getting too warm. The first time I wore it outside it was -1deg F on an extra cold, windy Indiana night and was perfectly comfortable and warm with only a hooded sweatshirt underneath. It also does a very good job at blocking all of those strong, cold winds. The extra stretch cuffs just inside the outer adjustable Velcro cuffs keep the wind and cold out much better than all my other coats too. This coat also has very nice extra large pockets to hold all your things and still have plenty of cozy room for you hands even w gloves on, just wish it had an inside as well but I guess the outer chest pocket makes up for it. I’m 6’8” and 320lbs, I was considering getting the 3xlt but opted for the 4xlt which I’m very happy I did. If you’re not “athletic” I’d suggest going a little larger especially if you wear sweatshirts or layers, but overall this coat fits perfect!!! I almost went with the black but decided to go with the grey outter super blue inner and couldn’t be happier. This is a beautiful and stylish well made coat. The only thing I might change is making the tall size maybe 2” linger but it’s still long enough without it. Overall, I’d highly recommend this coat to anyone.....exactly as described and much, much more. I’ve just become a customer for life, especially since they have the larger, tall sizes.... excellent job Columbia, keep it up!!!!!

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 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.
Date published: 2017-01-20
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.
Date published: 2017-01-13
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!
