Uses Winter, Ski / Snowsports


Three jackets in one—a warm, water-repellent zip-in liner with thermal reflectivity for bonus warmth; a waterproof-breathable and seam-sealed shell; and the combination of both—giving you the versatility to stay warm, dry, and comfortable in fluctuating winter conditions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 In 1 Bought this jacket to update the same style from a few years ago. I love the 3 in 1. I wear parts of it all the time! The exterior shell is fantastic! The interior piece serves it's purpose. It keeps me warm and is true to size, I just wish it was cut with a little more flattering shape like the one I bought a few years ago. Still love the product and recommend, just wishing for a more flattering cut when I wear the inside part alone. Now, I did buy a bigger size (or two) than I needed so I could wear sweatshirts underneath but I did the same thing the last time and the cut was much more flattering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Interchange Not For Me The jacket is very nice; however, I determined that I am not an "interchange jacket" enthusiast. When taking off the coat, I don't like that there are several layers to keep track of. It was hard to get my arms out of the sleeves because of the multiple interchangeable layers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality The jacket fit great and the quality is top notch for the price! The jacket feels lightweight, more-so than the last Columbia jacket I bought. It seems to be very warm and will most likely be sufficient for walks in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket This jacket is perfect. I love how you can layer or just wear one or the other. I always have problems with sleeve length being too short, but this jacket is perfect. I also have a large bust and it fits perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket Ever! This jacket is amazing. It runs a tad big but in winter jackets it's not a bad thing. It has held up very well. It is very stretchy which is great for skiing. You won't be sorry if you buy this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Winter Coat Not my first Whirlibird coat! There are super winter coats, I often get away with just wearing one piece. Awesome coat for winters in Canada. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Interchange Once again Columbia has proven that they are by far the masters of design when it comes to their clothing. The Interchange offers unrivaled versatility and quality. It can be worn in multiple ways and all of the little features make this jacket a win win for all seasons. Bravo Columbia!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bulky and big. Had to return it. The order came in on time. However It was a too big and bulky. I returned it. Since Columbia does not send pre-paid mail label, I had to spend money for return. What a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for this tall gal I was so pleased with the fit of this jacket. I am tall (nearly 6') so purchasing a jacket with sleeves that actually cover my wrists is terrific. I have received lots of compliments on this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat for cold weather Needed a heavier weight coat for travel in Canada in late January. Loved that this was two coats in one for warmer times of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! So warm! Gorgeous colors, pink purply camo. Very roomy. I usually wear xl. I'm 5'7 and 185lbs. There is enough room for a sweatshirt if needed. Very long. Hits about just at the bottom of my rear. Very nice coat for below zero!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlibird Interchange Jacket Fantastic jacket. Fits true to size. I love that I can take the shell off and just use the inside of the jacket when it is not too cold or wet. It keeps me warm but not sweaty. Very well made.
Date published: 2017-02-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great winter coat I love this coat. The only issue I have is the sleeves are a bit long and I bought white so it gets dirty quickly. As far as its design and functionality it is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile jackets - 3 in one I love that this can be worn so many ways. Jacket /liner, hooded or no hood, shell without liner, with or w/o hood, liner only (no hood). The construction is top notch, and the fabric very pretty (I bought white). The sizing, however is a bit off. I own an older Columbia shell (XL), and this coat fits more like that, but tighter in th upper arms and the sleeves are extra long (thank heaven for the velcro tabs.) The liner fits pretty true to size. I ordered a 2X and 3X to compare sizing. Th 3X was HUGE, and 2X a bit snug, but I'm keeping it. I was very happy to finally find a cute plus size WATERPROOF coat.
Date published: 2017-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlibird Interchange Jacket This coat is perfect for your winter needs. The liner is good for cold dry days, while the shell is good for wet days. Both together are perfect for cold, wet days. The fit is pretty true to size. However, when both pieces are worn together, the arms feel a bit snug. The color is exactly as shown (I ordered the Tradewinds Grey). Overall, this a great coat for all your winter activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Jacket! I love everything about it. I do agree with some other reviews that it'd be great if the outer jacket had it's own inside pockets. Other than that I am loving it in all aspects. I originally ordered two sizes as I'm in between, and ended up going with the larger of the two, mostly because I like to wear layers and am quite curvy (upper and lower).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super coat Parka fits great and is extremely warm, works great for cold winter mornings. The option to remove the outer shell for a warmer day is great. The inner jacket will be perfect for a spring day. There are plenty of pockets. Fits true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice coat overall I really like this coat: It is waterproof, the hood is adjustable/removeable, the adjustable arm cuffs are useful and I like that it has underarm vents and deep pockets. I have a pear shaped body and my arms aren't very big so this coat is a bit too roomy at the top for me (hard to accommodate multiple body shapes tough). The shell worn alone is very flattering and light, perfect for shopping or travelling... I do wish the pockets on the shell had zippers though. Overall I am happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this jacket I can honestly say I love this jacket. I always have a hard time finding jackets that fit properly. I'm 5'2" and chunky. Most jackets if they fit in the bust are to big everywhere else, I'm normally wear a 1X and 1X here fits just right. I get compliments on this jacket everytime I go out. I bought the black geo pattern on sale. Love that it's 3 jackets in one. Keeps me plenty warm as we are hitting -25 C here. I also like the fact that I can tuck my gloves up into the cuffs were as other jackets have the thumb hole and your gloves have to go over them making gloves to tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE winter jacket The omni-heat is awesome! I have been using just the inner jacket for snowshoeing and walking my dog during winter and it keeps me warm even with -21 windchill. Super comfy, lightweight. Pairs perfectly with my omni heat winter pants. Excellent product and so glad that Columbia understands that plus size women need winter active tech wear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right I ordered the 1X as it is my usual size. It is just right, enough room in the arms, around my belly, and just long enough. I would recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around coat! I ordered this coat after trying one on at a local Bass Pro Shop (for size reference). I found that it was an overall great fit for me. I am 5'9, a size 18-20, & pear shaped & ordered a 2X. It seems that this jacket will be super warm without the bulky, restricted feeling while driving. I have only worn the inner shell so far and it seems to be very warm alone even in 30 degree weather. I also like that it is longer than most interchangeable jackets and does not ride up when sitting down. I'm excited to try it out in low teen temperatures tomorrow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! I got one of these a few years ago while I was in Chicago because I didn't have a proper winter coat. The interchange system is great for traveling because you can remove or add a layer depending on the weather. The inner jacket is lightweight and nice on its own. The outer jacket is great for rainy & windy days - too warm for summer, it is a lot of jacket for Tennessee, I have only worn both pieces together a few times, and get more use out of the separate layers. My jacket is a few years older and they changed a few features, but they kept the powder skirt (no more drafty back) and the armpit zips - they really help so you can dump extra heat without exposing your neck & chest. I have not been skiing but the goggle pocket is great for sunglasses & a hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 2-Piece Coat I love this coat! I've used the pieces zipped together for snowshoeing on VT trails in the winter. It's not super warm if you're standing still, but when I'm moving around, this coat traps body heat nicely. The waterproof shell alone is great for spring and summer rain storms - keeps me nice and dry. I wear the thermal base layer under my wool coat in the winter (again, it's not a super warm layer, but does a great job at trapping body heat). I find that the base layer is great for wearing alone on cool (40/50s) days. I generally wear an 18 or a 16W - I ordered the 2X and it fits me well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking coat Haven't worn it yet but looks like it will be a great coat for recess duty in Iowa during the winter. I ordered up a size after reading other reviews and that was a great idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a jacket that fits! I'm so glad I purchased this jacket. I have had difficulties finding one that fits my measurements (48"/32"/52") especially around the hips, and the 2X is perfect! It doesn't ride up because it's big enough for my hips, and it's not too bulky in the waist. The inner jacket is light enough to wear in the spring and the outer part is a great raincoat. Definitely recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very fkattering I felt like I was wearing a big sack. As others have said no center cinch which would be nice. Also if you don't have the liner in you don't have any inside pockets
Date published: 2016-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coat I really like the coat very warm , the only thing that it needs is for the coat to gather in the middle not at the bottom. It is very lite to wear. I would like to get another one if it gathers in the middle. I have another Columbia coat that I used as good now after 15 plus years it is my everyday coat and this new one is for good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection from the elements As a professional dog walker I am outdoors every day no matter the weather. This jacket has kept me warm and toasty and is so light weight as not to restrict movement. I love this coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this Jacket I've had my eye on this jacket for some time. I love the 3-in-1 functionality. I live and play outdoors in New England. The weather is variable throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring-warm one day, freezing, pelting rain the next, then sub-zero and lots of snow. This jacket takes it all. The outer shell is perfect for that freezing rain. With the inner jacket zipped in, it takes sub-zero weather like a "day at the beach". I'm very glad I finally purchased this. I only wish there was a small zippered pocket outside near the chest area for credit cards and keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what is missing I miss the two outside breast pockets that the bugaboo jacket had, very handy for sunglasses, phones & passports, but even more I miss the two way zipper that the bugaboo had but I can't find on any Columbia jackets now, very useful for sitting in a vehicle. I do like that the lining is not fleece, it slips on over sweatshirts so easily/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant! First, I ordered this in a 2x when I don't think I needed to but still wearable and functional. I ordered the red and some people had mentioned that the coat was pastel and pink. The color is definitely not pastel. It is bold and bright and pink. I'm not bothered by it but just a heads up. Can't wait to wear it in Tahoe!
Date published: 2016-02-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A warm but yet lightweight coat I had this coat for about 2 weeks now and I do like it but the weather here in Chicago has not been too cold yet so waiting for that to happen. It nice to wear one coat in the winter that is not bulky. I recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NOT FRICKIN RED If you are clicking through the color options going "why is every option some pastel cutsie color or pattern or black" and then spot ruby red and think sweet...a nice solid color for women who don't like pink or pastels....I MUST WARN YOU, DO NOT BUY THE RED....its not red...its hot pink. Come on. I like earth tones and dark colors and even bold colors...but pastels? and BOLD pastels are even worse. Woman can wear all the colors that exist...who decided that our only options had to be girly or cutsie. If you like that...great...but what about the rest of us! Love the coat...which i guess i will be returning for...black. sigh. If woman aren't cutsie we must want black. No in-between...
Date published: 2016-02-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket I ordered a size up (3X) because I like to layer and I wanted the jacket to be comfortable. I love the color (emerald plaid) and the fact that it's 3 jackets so it can be used in multiple ways. I bought this jacket for a ski trip to CO and was warm and versatile. I will buy it again when I shrink in size or if something happens the one that I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for 2016 Snowzilla! I got this jacket hoping to have a waterproof, warm, and sturdy jacket for the next few winters, and I'm so glad I got this jacket! I got the 2X. I'm a 6'0" 16/18 woman with a pear shape; the chest is fairly big on me at a 38C, but the arms are long and it FITS IN THE HIPS LIKE A MIRACLE. The whole thing fits pretty loose, but I can layer underneath it and not worry about the jacket being too tight on my hips. I didn't get this 3-in-1 to make a fashion statement. It's a tiny bit shorter than I thought it'd be, only barely covers my rear when I stand, but the snow skirt prevented anything from wiggling its way into my jacket. That's my only negative; I wish it were about 2-4" longer. But I stayed warm! I stayed dry! I had a ton of fun in the snow! I wrassled with my dog in 15" of snow for days, I shoveled out driveways in 30-50mph gusts of 20F winds, I trudged about 6 miles through the woods, and I was never cold and never wet. Best purchase!
