Women's Alpensia Action™ Jacket is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs small If your going to layer go up a size! I had to return mine and turned out Columbia is now out of stock for all size so..... I ended up getting another jacket but I wanted this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket When I initially bought this jacket I thought it was thinner, but happily surprised it is relatively thick, has some weight to it, fits perfectly and is superbly made! The grey with hot pink accents came out beautifully. I'm beyond happy with my purchase and it will work beautifully in Alaska.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! This jacket is lightweight, comfortable, and keeps me warm and dry. So far it has stood up to below zero temps, wind, rain, and snow! I did order a size larger than my normal, but I also like to layer so wanted room to wear hooded sweatshirts too. This jacket fits comfortably over layers or just one without seeming bulky. I love the length too and the way it curves slightly to add a hint of femininity. It’s a great winter coat that I can wear every day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coat, but wide sleeves I went back and forth on whether to get an XS or S. I went with S, which is probably good because otherwise the shoulders would be too tight, but this jacket has very wide, long sleeves, which isn't really my style. Not sure if an XS would've remedied that problem. Overall, I'm happy with it, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Jacket This Jacket is very warm, and is great quality. Only issue with this jacket was it ran a little small, so if you want to layer up under the jacket I would condsider buying a size up from your normal size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jacket This jacket is light weight but very warm. Purchased this jacket to replace my old Columbia ski jacket. Purchased the deep rust color in small. Only complaint, the armpit area of the jacket is a little tight. The many pockets in this jacket are very handy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm but not as pictured I was in the market for a new ski coat and my previous is an omni heat Columbia so I thought I couldn't go wrong. It fits nicely in the body and the arms but is tight in the neck. It is much warmer than my previous coat, so that's good. It definitely does not have two different shades of gray, though. Also, the sleeves that you can put a thumb through to keep them in your gloves are gray, not pink. It is slightly noticeable that it is two different patterns on the pocket vs. the body of the coat. Not as visually attractive as the picture suggests. No small loop for attaching a ski pass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome slimming winter coat I spent a very long time looking for the perfect coat to go skiing in. This coat is very warm and doesn’t make you look fat!!! I tried on many coats that all looked cute on a hanger, but once I put it on it would look so puffy by the stomach area. This coat is very slimming and has that cool silver stuff on the inside that keeps you warm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color not like picture I ordered this jacket, and was so excited. Fits great, have not used it outside yet. But i'm very dissapointed the grey jacket does not match the picture. The picture shows a 2-tone grey with pink accents, but the jacket I received was all a light grey and the only pink was on the zipper and inside body (not on hood, inside of neck, or on sleeves with thumb hole as pictured). The jacket falls short from what I thought I was orsering without these extra details. I may have to keep it anyway since I need a jacket in 3 days... dissapointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for skiing Has good stretch in the length of the arms

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ski jacket I ordered this jacket because it had everything I wanted in a ski jacket- a media pocket, a mesh goggle pocket, heat technology, and was roomy yet flattering! The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it isn’t insulated. I had to wear several layers under it to go skiing in 7 degree weather, where I’ve had other jackets that were good to go with a base layer and the jacket alone. BUT- I knew it wasn’t insulated going in. So, this jacket is great for milder ski weather and has all of the compartments and features you’d want in a great quality jacket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’d order again I love the reflective inner layer. Have recommended it to family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winter jacket Love the color and fit. It fit perfectly except it was a little snug in the armpit area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit & performance This jacket runs true to size. Is waterproof, perfect for powder days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I needed to replace my old winter jacket much to my dismay and decided to give this jacket a shot. I absolutely adore it- it's extremely comfortable, wicks water without any issue, and is great for an active, outdoor lifestyle (I use mine for skiing, snow hikes with my dog, and any sort of outdoor activity). I recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a high quality winter coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this Jacket! I live in Greenville, NC where the winters are usually mild. We have already had two different winter storms with snow. For my job, I am outside and needed something durable, warm and functional. This jacket is the best. Keeps me warm, is easy to move around in, and doesn’t feel too bulky. I know I will have it for a long time as it is great quality. I am 5’10 and it comes just below my waist. Fits very true to size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs a little small This jacket was tight through the shoulders and hips - would not be good for skiing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I love it. It's fits snuggle but comfortable at the same time. If you like more layers than go up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love this jacket. Super light weight, but warm. I was replacing a Columbia jacket I had since 2003, and this one is about 1/2 the weight. Love the hand pockets, and the larger pockets for a hat, gloves, goggles, etc. Love the color too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent jacket Bought this jacket for my daughter and she loves it. She said it keeps her super warm while walking to school.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ski trip ready Really look at specs of the jacket before buying. I saw the type of fit it was, and I usually use mediums when it comes to jackets. I’m 5’4 and about 150lbs. However since it was active fit it is alittle more tight fitting so I got a large because I wanted to wear bulky sweaters and my ski overalls under the jacket without feeling supper tight and constricted. I did use it skiing, it’s not super bulky and heavy so I would still maybe recomend a decent sweater for insulation in below freezing temps but it was good against wind chill and wet snow while skiing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Winter Rain Coat I am so glad that I found this jacket. It is very water proof with medium warmth. The fit is true to size, roomy but not too bulky. It is warm on its own and also leaves room for an added layer if needed. I also appreciate that the hood fits snugly and is adjustable. This is a lot of coat for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best product in the market I recomend the product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made; functional Purchased this jacket for use skiing. The sleeves are long enough to use the thumb holds which is amazing as I have difficulty finding regular sized (as opposed to tall) tops with sleeves long enough. Nice weight; layers well. Good storage for items. Like that the inner snap system can be used to make the jacket more snug or snapped onto itself for a bit more room inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket but went with another style! Really liked this Jacket, I ordered in a small and I was pretty big for me. I am about 5’3” and 105lbs. I looked at my old jacket which was an extra small so I sent this back and exuded to go with the alpine action since it was slightly cheaper and I liked that it was all the same color. The alpensia one was very nice though, love the Omni heat insulation. I live in South Dakota and it gets coooldddd cold some days. I have a pair of boots from Columbia that keep my feet warm no matter how cold it gets so I had to get a coat too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket This jacket runs a little small on me, so I purchased a size bigger for more room to layer. Great jacket overall. Have not worn it in the snow yet, but it keeps me warm on 40 degrees weather in the northwest (: FYI, I'm 5'2 and 118lbs, normally wear size XS, purchased S.
