Women’s Alpine Action™ Omni-Heat™ Jacket - Plus Size is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED MY JACKET I bought this for myself and as a plus-sized women, it's very difficult finding winter clothes that fit just right. This jacket was just right not too tight around the wait (as my belly is bigger after having 3 kids) i was able to zip it all the way up (because I have full-sized breasts) and it kept me warm, dry, and comfortable when we went to the snow to do some snow tubing and snowboarding! And yes, it looks cute. It did NOT make me look frumpy =)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but the hips! Overall, this is a great jacket. Good fit but can't do many layers (2 max for me); I love the extra fabric that comes out to cover your wrists (great when it's cold and windy); I ordered "emerald" but the color looks like a lovely turquoise color. I'm a big gal, with good hips, and even though I love this jacket, it can be a little tight in the hip area though, so just an FYI

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! I wanted something light weight, comfy in the shoulders, and warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passed the Minnesota Test A small issue I've had so far is the fabric on the back between the shoulders bulges out. This might be to account for activity using your arms or simply for people with a large bust, but it initially looked really silly to me. The hips also felt snug to me at first but I think in comparison to my last coat, it is just a slimmer fit. The neck area is a bit constricting for me. Hopefully the more I break-in the coat, the more flexible the neck will become. If I'm not wearing a scarf and my hair is out of the way, it feels great. But I typically have my hair down and a scarf on which, when fully zipped, makes me a feel a little bit like I'm wearing a neck brace. Otherwise, the coat stands up beautifully to the MN winter so far. I haven't worn it in one of the super cold days yet *knock on wood,* but its been well-below freezing every day that I've had it and the coat keeps me very warm. I've taken it through snow and sleet -- a HUGE step up from my last coat that was 0% waterproof. I stayed super dry every time. I appreciate the internal media pocket so my phone doesn't shut off from the cold while in an exterior pocket, however the two breast pockets seem to be a bit lower on me that I would like. Perhaps the size I got is intended for someone a bit taller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Alpine Action Omi-Heat Ski Jacket, style# 156224 After using a Columbia jacket for more than 15 years, I thought it was time to upgrade to a new model. I am an advance skier (3 Diamond slopes) Skiing in weather that is -10 Celsius (14F) , the Alpine Action Omi-Heat jacket is a true disappointment! The hood doesn't fit the helmet, the sleeve cuffs are to narrow, and worse of all the jacket doesn't keep you warm despite wearing a base and a mid layer. I regret buying the jacket and will need to go back to my old and reliable one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket Love this jacket but it does fit smallish. I am not as comfortable if I have thick layers underneath like a hoodie. However, if you have thin layers, you will stay warm in even the coldest weather. I love the built in half glove things with the thumb hole. I find it provides just enough coverage. Also love the fleece lined pockets. They get nice and toasty if you keep your hands in them or especially if you use hand warmers like I do. If you tend to wear bulkier layers, I would strongly recommend going up a size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from warm but not heavy Warm Coat with enough room to layer on really cold day-- I like to wear underarmour hoodies and the coat fits great with them--also fits with sweaters with cuddle duds underneath --very nice if you like to be able to move around and not feel like you are suffocating or be constricted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE Per all the reviews I ordered one size up and it fits perfect! I am very broad for a girl and this is the first coat for a girl I have been able to purchase and wear and I LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this coat! Love the fit and the colors. It was true to size. My only complaint is the hand/thumb part doesn't stretch well and I end up ripping it when I reach for something.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy the Lhotse for warmth My goals with this purchase: (1) A coat that’s comfortably warm over two long-sleeve shirts in 20-degree weather, and that I can wear over a sweatshirt in colder temps. Something I can quickly toss on for three-a-day dog walks and numerous errands. (2) Velcro sleeve adjustment, a necessity as I have short arms. (3) Something flattering. (4) Versatile, easy-to-keep clean main color, i.e., black or dark gray. (5) Collar color that does not drain color from face or need frequent washing. I prefer fleece linings, but who wants to remove and wash a lining every time its baby blue collar shows a little dirt? I ordered the Alpine Action in a 1X, and found it too large for my build (38-35-45). It might have been more flattering in an XL, but I decided the reflective lining wasn’t warm enough. In 45-degree weather in high humidity, with a couple layers, I could still feel a bit of a chill. For vigorous activity it might be fine, but for a brisk dog walk it was lacking. Based on the reviews regarding warmth, I switched to an XL Lhotse Interchange. More flattering. Insulated lining could stand to be a little warmer, but it was sufficient over a single long-sleeve tee in 35-degree weather. And I think the “pit vents” could improve motion and comfort when layering over a sweatshirt. A feature I appreciate: If you unzip the faux fur collar trim, the zipper on the hood stays hidden. I’m keeping the Lhotse and returning the Alpine. See Lhotse review for a photo of that item.
