Don't know why I'm surprised after previous Columbia "waterproof" purchases, but during an average, non-windy rainfall walks, water will come through the seam between the body and the hood. Best thing is that I purchased it first as a wind coat with raincoat being secondary. As a wind coat it's excellent. I am, however, convinced that Columbia is incapable of making a truly waterproof product. I've owned a pair of hiking boots and Bugaboo winter boots, both claim to be waterproof and both leaked within months of purchase.

Purchased this for my husband and it has almost all the features he was looking for. Most important was the ability to keep him dry which it does well, but he also wanted the mesh lining, hood adjustments and pockets. Only downside was that the pull tabs for the zippers were a little small and hard to manage with big fingers or gloves on.
I would recommend this product.

I recently purchased the watertight jacket from Columbia and it is exactly what I was looking for. A year around rain jacket that looks sharp and fits correctly. I've only wore it a couple of times so far but am very happy with the purchase.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket does a great job of stopping the wind and rain. It runs a little large but when you are fishing in the winter on the Oregon Coast it is nice to be able to have this lightweight jacket stuffed in your pack, ready to pull out and easily put on over all my other layers.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered this jacket for my boyfriend, it was very nice and all. But it was too big, i chose small but it runs really big. I believe they should have a model and write there what size they are wearing to give the customer an idea of the size and how it runs. I will be returning this product because it was too big. Was not statisfied.
I would recommend this product.

Love theVvelcro fastenings on the cuffs. Good location of pockets. Excellent fit A color which will stand out a bit.
One improvement I would like to see - a more substantial main zipper. The present one is quite small & is easily mis-mated. Yet the zipper allows itself to be zipped to the top. Trying to un-zip it, a certain amount of force was required.
I would recommend this product.

Torrential down pours, mammoth size rain drops, waterfall spray that would knock a small child over, this Jacket combated all of it. The jacket kept me nice and dry from the random down pours and shed water for a solid hour before I began to over heat. Its hard to say that the jacket doesn't breath very well when its 80 degrees out with 95% humidity, but overall, I would highly recommend this pack-able rain jacket to any arsenal of travel gear.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket because it says it is waterproof and a reasonable green, a hard color to find. It hasn't been used outside yet. They run at least one size larger than similar products, and meant I had to return one and buy another.
I would recommend this product.

I live in the Pacific Northwest, and wanted a rain jacket for all around use. I have used this jacket for everything from river fishing, to coaching soccer and staying out of the rain, to having a lightweight jacket to and from work. The construction is great, there are numerous pockets for storage of items, and the hood is padded where it meets your forehead; which is a neat feature. Loving my new jacket.
I would recommend this product.

Very pleased with how this jacket has performed so far. I wear it when I commute to work on a road bike. Although my demand for its performance is light, against Bay Area elements, it has done well so far to keep me warm. It also breathes nicely, so I don't overheat. The only reason I didn't give it an "EXCELLENT" on Function, is because I have yet to see how it will perform come the rain season.....but with this being my first year commuting on a bike, the same can be said about me!
I would recommend this product.

Excellent rain jacket, priced very fairly, and runs pretty large. I'm 5'10" and 180 lbs, and the medium is just right with layers beneath... any bigger and I'd be swimming in it. Great product two weeks into the PNW rainy season.
I would recommend this product.

As a professional angler, having the right gear is key. What you wear on the water is no exception, and this jacket fits the bill perfectly. Being light weight and very compact makes it perfect for keeping in my boat, while being breathable and comfortable makes it a great jacket. The fit is a touch large, which is perfect for throwing over whatever I'm already wearing. Could not ask for a better all around jacket for when things get wet and wild on the water!
I would recommend this product.

This jacket sheds water like a champ and yet is still very breathable. I have used this jacket multiple times and has held up very well. If you want an affordable packable rain coat this is the one for you.
