Your little boy has outgrown toy trucks and footie pajamas, and now favors fattie skis with graffiti like graphics and drop crotch pants. He rarely remembers to flush the toilet, but never forgets to grab the Columbia Boys' Alpine Action Jacket as he tears out of the door. Insulated and waterproof, the Alpine Action also features Columbia's Outgrown system, so the jacket grows with your boy as he starts to change into a gulp teenager. Your heir apparent doesn't feel cold, but you know by his blue lips that he does get a little chilly after ripping tricks all day long, whether the sun is out or the snow is pounding. The combination of Omni Heat thermal reflective lining and 100g Microtemp XF insulation work to keep your son warmer, longer. The insulation prevents cold air from getting in, and warm air from getting out. Omni Heat reflective lining essentially returns emitted body heat back to the torso, reducing the amount of thermo regulation your son's body must perform to maintain optimal warmth. Finally, Omni Tech face fabric and sealed seams keep water out, so long as your little shredder spends more time upright than making snow angels. A microfleece lined hood traps heat escaping from his head, and an adjustable powder skirt prevents snow from slipping down his pants when he flips tricks that make you a little nauseous. A media pocket lets him bring a cell phone or music player, even though what he listens to doesn't resemble music. He won't misplace his goggles due to the goggle pocket, and the zippered arm pocket provides safe and reliable storage for his season pass. Whether your son skis, boards, or walks to school through waist high drifts of snow, he'll stay warm and dry in the Alpine Action jacket.
