Columbia Men’s Whirlibird Parka Ski Jacket – Review

For the next winter, me and the wife are planning on taking a skiing trip in the Alps. We’ve been saving up for it for a while now. We’re buying the much needed ski jackets for the both of us well in advance, because come December we’ll be doing some holiday spending. It would be an eternal shame if we would spend so much money that we can’t afford a couple of jackets for our very first skiing trip anymore. So we browsed around on Amazon because we’ve had positive buying experiences there in the past.

We quickly found out that the Columbia company is very well known for making excellent skiing jackets and that their Whirlibird Parka jacket is one of the best selling products ever. I’m not surprised. On Amazon it is getting raving reviews! This jacket right here is the men’s version of the Whirlibird, but luckily.. there is also a women’s version of this jacket. Me and my wife now both have a Whirlibird and we look great in them. The jackets keep us very warm and if we are to believe the product description, it will also do a very good job of keeping the water out because of the water repelling material these jackets are made of.

The fabric is also very breathable, so perspiration will never truly be a problem. I remember that when I was a kid, I was wearing a winter jacket that made me sweat like a pig because it was just so warm. It wouldn’t let me breathe at all. I’m glad to see that ski jacket technology has come a long way in all those years. This jacket keeps the warmth in, but it lets all the moist out.

Overall, me and my wife are very happy with our purchases so far. Good jackets for a decent price. Fast shipping too.
