I ordered this Columbia jacket for Christmas I would like to mention that altrece shipped fast I was impressed. I have owned several Columbia jacket through the years.I like their affordability versus the quality when compared to other top name brands. Columbia is second to none at a usually lower price than a comparable product .I like this brand is very warm and very fit to me. Because I am 5'6 153lbs.this is my favorite.

Excellent Ski Parka
My son bought a Whirlibird parka last year and raved about how warm it kept him while skiing - he generally gets cold while skiing. Also, the fit and weight of the parka was excellent - his size was L. Therefore, I bought a Whirlibird parka this ski season. It was sized right and feels good on - I wear an XL. I like the omni heat material because you stay warmer and it slides on the clothes I wear under the parka - easy to ski in!!!

Excellent Buy
Columbia Men's Whirlibird Parka is a very warm versatile parka. I am 5' 11" 185 lbs and the Large was a perfect fit. Was pleased to find the Color skeem for Sea Salt, White/ Red/ Black, is actually better/brighter in person than the Grey/Orange/Black depicted on internet pictures. I use the Whirlibird Parka for skiing and it's find it far warmer than my old waist length ski coat, yet no real compromise in flexability. Although Parka is relativly heavy, Omni heat Liner can be removed or even used by-itself, offering quite a bit of added utility and versatility. Overall, I am quite happy with the Performance and Quality of the Parka, and cannot say enough about Altec's Price and Service. Recieved email confirmation of transaction with an accurate anticipated delivery date, which was then followed up with a tracking email. Highly recommend.

Excellent coat
This coat is great. The outer shell is waterproof and very warm. Its a little bit large, but not too large to wear by itself. The inner shell is very warm, but a little short, although not too short to wear by itself. I recommend detaching the coats from each other even when wearing them together. This prevents you from feeling restricted. Neither coat is hot though, so in mild or cold weather you feel comfortable. All in all, this coat met my expectations. If you are trying to choose between brands, I tried on all of the brands at the store, and columbia beat them all by a fair margin. It was the most comfortable fit, the highest quality, it also had the best features (the best inliner, omni-heat -- which is totally awesome). Also, because I bought it on Altrec, I got it at a great discount, which is another reason to recommend Columbia, because Altrec almost never discounts TNF gear, so I saved like 25 dollars. If you are trying to decide whether to get this coat or a more expensive Columbia 3 in one jacket, I tried out this and one of the more expensive ones, and didn't notice a huge difference.
