Because a lot can happen between December and April, this versatile, super technical parka sports two exquisite jackets in one and our most advanced weather-fighting components. The moisture-proof outer shell is Omni-Tech® waterproof-breathable and fully seam sealed. Sweet jacquard print graces the shoulders and arms, and tuliped seam lines give way to an embossed dot-pattern stretch material in the jacket’s body, which delivers great fit and mobility. Elegant piping on the collar ties it all together. The snap-back powder skirt features a unique stretch material instead of regular taffeta, so it actually conforms to your body shape.
And here’s where the true value comes in: the 3-point Interchange liner is a stellar jacket in its own right. It’s Omni-Shield® advanced water repellant and packs extreme lightweight warmth courtesy of Omni-Heat® thermal insulation and thermal reflective technology. Supremely soft fabric and pretty pleating on the chest elevate the luxe factor, while lush high pile on the interior collar enhances coziness. Comfort cuffs are cold canceling and soft against your skin. A smattering of waterproof zippered pockets and interior security/media pockets stash all your essentials securely.

Good, but could be Better

I ordered this coat because I needed to replace my old Columbia 3-in-1 Fire Ridge Ski Coat that I have had for 15 years. I was very pleased with this older coat but wanted a more feminine, newer coat (the old coat was a Man's Ski Coat). I saw the Women's Prism Ice Parka and loved the design and color, plus it had Columbia's Omni-heat technology built into it. When I first tried on the coat, it was a little tight but I could still wear it. I normally fit womens medium and larges so in my case it ran a little small. After I put it on I could feel myself getting warmer. It is windproof and definitely will keep you warm on the slopes. I wish it was a little more flexible in the shoulders and arms and that the inner liner would zip into the outer layer for more stability. Overall this is a good coat.Pros: Great design, Performance, very warm, versitle, Cons: runs small
Great Ski Coat

Recieved my Columbia Ice Parka a couple of days ago My husband, who is the pickiest, even thought it was a great coat. The quality, Material, Waterproof zipper, is excellent. I am 5'9, and usually find that I have to order a size up to get sleeves long enough, but not with this one. Have had Columbia jackets before, and was not disappointed by this one as well. Styling is so much nicer than a typical ski coat. Shipping very quickPros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Definitely NOT worth the price!

For starters, this is a fabulous looking jacket -NOT parka. For me, it all goes bad from there. The fit is small and strange -- smallish thru the midriff but VERY small in the pits, shoulders and arms. The problem with the arm fit is NOT the length, it's in the circumference of the sleeve. WEIRD. Second issue was with the warmth of the jacket. Didn't feel at all warm to me. Might be warm if you're generating a lot of body heat thru skiing or whatever, but as a normal everyday jacket, forget it! Felt the slightest breeze blow through the jacket. Also disappointed in the construction quality. Zippers insertion was sloppy, the elastic drawcord at the hem was broke. Not at all what I expect from Columbia. I received two of these jackets so it wasn't that I had received a "bad one". Usually wear a medium, ordered a large, returned for Xlarge and both had the same issues.Cons: Cost, Low performance, Poor quality

I bought this for my wife and she loves it! She has received several "Love your coat" comments. Ordered a large that should have been comfortably big, but it fits a bit snug. I'd recommend to anyone.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Cons: Cost

Bought this coat for the very cold days on the ski mountain. I have been wearing it around town on the very cold mornings. This coat is very comfortable and it seems to adjust to my body temperature!! Amazing. It looks great and the styling is so up to date. Can't wait to wear it on the mountain.
