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!

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 csdogmom 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.

Ordered several sizes larger than normal after reading reviews and coat was still too small. Sizing is way off. It cost me $12.71 to return the darn thing! Won't order from Columbia ever again!

I bought this jacket as ski jackets are normally very warm. This one is not, because of the "Breathable" fabric means the cold gets through the sleeves when there is any breeze. Maybe waterproof but disappointed in not being warm unless you already warm. Other when that, the coolness in the sleeves it is a nice jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dems I love my new jacket!
I can't remember the last time I had a real winter jacket but with recent below 0 wind chills in the last 2-3 years I decided that I really needed one this year and I decided to treat myself. I'm so happy I did! I normally would wear a 2x but I had to go up a size and i am still able to wear a hoodie or a sweater underneath. I love that it has to many pockets outside and in. I got the black one which isn't really black it's more of a charcoal grey but it still looks great. It also has these hand sleeves which I find handy so the sleeves doesn't move up in case your ever reaching for something. So far I've been kept warm and I really love my new jacket.

I received this coat last week and since then it has been really cold in Minnesnowta. It has been awesome. Very well made and warm. I love all of the pockets!

Rated 2 out of 5 by sQualie No Pit Vents?!!
This is a great jacket, seems like a nice level of warmth for those colder days on the slopes. Cut is nice and the powder skirt stays in place through the full range of motion BUT, prepare to sweat on those warmer days as there are no pit vents. Regardless of how breathable it's advertised to be, it can never make up for vents. Sadly, I've had to return this jacket as it isn't suited for true skiers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lulu865 Great Jacket if you know what you're looking for!
It can get well below freezing here in Denver. I was looking for something that would keep me warm as I walk around while at the same time keep the wind and snow out.
This jacket is thermal reflective, meaning it keeps your body heat inside. This is great as long as you're moving around or for someone like me that generates a lot of heat naturally!
If you're not moving around and not your own heater, then you'll need to layer if you want to stay toasty warm.
The hood could be better. I found that the shape/structure of it was annoying. It does stay in place though.
Overall, great purchase to wear alongside a fleece for those especially chilly days!
