There is no Captain I fish with in the temperate zones that does not have a storm suit. I bought the parka and bibs. It is a nice blue and black. Well constructed and made to fit over other garments. I real enjoy Omni-Heat and appreciate the function. Well constructed and reinforced at critical points.
I would recommend this product.

Got my first chance to put the jacket and bibs to the test this weekend. Freezing cold with 20-30 mph winds. I was toasty warm and dry. Only had jeans and sweatshirt underneath. This is an outstanding rain suit!!!!

This parka is awesome! Light ,true to fit,and warm. The neoprene double cuffs kept the rain and cold out even at 70 m.p.h. runs . The hood took a little fitting but the zip in liner option makes this a keeper!

I've went through a bunch of different fishing parkas. But i love the fit and feel of tis parka hands down! The Omni heat tech really works. I never got cold or hot in this parka. I recommend these to any angler looking to maintain a perfect body temp,stay dry and look as good as the pros!
I would recommend this product.

Found this jacket at Columbia outlet in HHI last Oct. Have been looking for Omni heat jacket for skiing and said this might work, if not it wound be great for hiking rain gear. Well I have skied in it 3 days at temps of 13 to 25 degrees and it has been fantastic! Have only worn a thermal top and light weight Columbia polar Fleece under it for skiing. Clear pocket is great for ski pass. Just bought a Columbia Ten Trail 3 Fleece to zip into the jacket to give me extra warmth when the temps get into the minus #'s and high winds of the Mt. Washington area.
I would recommend this product.

The "gale" formerly known as "squall" is the hottest looking run suit on the market for fishermen. The omni-heat tech provides ample warmth in even the coldest conditions. For added warmth just zip in a liner and the suit still does not lose its functionality. Many suits force you to sacrifice maneuverability for warmth, but not this one!!
I would recommend this product.

I'm a full time charter boat captain in the Florida keys. I was looking for a heavy duty jacket that will keep me warm and dry during winter season. Well I found the perfect one! This jacket is and feels amazing, it's lite and really comfortable. I been wearing it every day for my regular 20+ mile run to the fishing grounds. It keeps me warm and dry when it's cold and windy but it also feels very comfortable on the not so cold days. I really recommend this jacket you will be happy.
I would recommend this product.

Great parka. About 1/3 the weight of my old one. The Parka, as I find with most Columbia gear, ran a little small. I wear XL clothing, so I was glad I ordered XXL. Just enough room for a sweatshirt.
I wear the Parka and bibs for cold, wet conditions fishing Spring & Fall Salmon on the Columbia River and Winter Harbor, B.C.
Thanks for the great Parka.
I would recommend this product.

This Parka is the lightest, warmest, and most comfortable I have ever used. When I hunt it keeps me very warm and when I'm fishing or in wet condition it keeps me dry. The pockets are in the right place and zippers keep all of my gear in their place. This parks is built well and I plan on using it for years to come.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is simply amazing! Used this in our tournaments in the fall on St. Clair and Coldwater Michigan. It kept me warm and dry the whole day and was not restricting at all when casting all day! I was surprised how well it kept me warm in the win especially flying at 65+ mph on a boat. Highly recommend to whoever fishes late in the year!

I have a lot of rain gear but this coat is the best by far. It fits and feels like a casual coat. I really like the ability to zip fleece or heavier interchange coats into it. i highly recommend this coat.

I am a full time fishing guide on Dale Hollow Lake in TN. It gets very cold here in the fall and winter, but that doesn't stop us from catching our quary, the smallmouth bass. I purchased this Shell as the final outer layer of my cold weather gear and I was not dissapointed. It is very warm thanks to the Omni Heat Technology and the wind is no match for this Parka. It stops it in its tracks as well as the rain. I have spent countless hours in the rain with this Parka and all layers underneath are dry when I get back to the dock. Very important to me! Thumbs up on this one Columbia!

I finally got around to use this product this past weekend and was blown away. Spent all day fishing in the rain with the weather at the start of tournament time around 33 degrees wearing a pair of jeans a t shirt and a sweatshirt and I didn't even need the sweatshirt. No thermals, no base layer and I was warm as can be while everybody else is wearing 5 layers and still cold. If you fish a lot of cold weather this is a necessity for you!
I would recommend this product.
