Here's what other sites are saying:

The Columbia Alpine Alliance(TM) 3-in-1 insulated jacket pairs a waterproof shell with a warm liner jacket. Wear them together for serious warmth, or don either one solo as the weather requires.


Because the best snow is had when fair-weather mountain enthusiasts are nowhere in sight, you need a jacket that’ll get you through crisp first-chair missions, deep cold snaps, and snowing sideways blizzards. Just right for the job, the Alpine Alliance is Omni-Tech waterproof-breathable, fully seam sealed, and packs 100 grams of core-warming insulation. A bonded storm flap protects the center front zipper, underarm vents zip open to disperse excess heat, and the adjustable powder skirt snaps back to the jacket’s lining when you don’t need it. The shell’s elegant texture mélange fabric combines with urban-inspired metallic cube trim buttons for an awesome style-meets-function effect. The Interchange liner is a killer basic, with Omni-Shield advanced repellency and toasty insulation. An ingenious hidden pocket at left chest disguises itself along baffling lines and provides the perfect stash spot for a cell phone, as does the corresponding chest pocket on the shell. The attached storm hood features drawcords for on-the-fly adjustment. FEATURES: Fabric: Shell: 72% nylon/28% polyester.

When your season's pass is in the east, but you make a point of spending time every year skiing western powder, you're going to need a jacket that covers the gamut of conditions you'll encounter this winter. The Columbia Womens Alliance Parka fits the bill, giving you multiple options of wear to suit any weather condition: bright and cold, stormy, warm and slushy, and even (shudder) rainy.


Fully waterproof and breathable, the Columbia Alpine Alliance Parka for women is insulated alpine outerwear that's ideal for skiing in a range of cold weather conditions. It features a three-in-one configuration with a zip-in insulating jacket that you can wear inside the shell on wet days, or wear separately when the sun is out. The seam-sealed outer shell has a waterproof and breathable Omni-Tech(R) fabric that keeps water and wind out while allowing a moderate degree of vapor to escape from inside the jacket. Up top is an attached hood that's fully adjustable and sized to accommodate most skiing helmets on the market today. If you tend to ski later in the season, you'll appreciate the zippered underarm venting for convenient cooling in sunny conditions. The inner insulating jacket features a chest pocket and two zippered handwarmer pockets.
