I love that I can pack this jacket into it's self and it actually packs pretty light and small. It's waterproof and light, what more could you ask for. It's nice they have tall sizes, I have longer arms and am 6'4'' 220 and the XLT fits me great.
I would recommend this product.

Bought this coat for a July Alaskan cruise and found myself wearing it over my hooded sweatshirt every time I snow blow the driveway. It not only keeps me dry, it really blocks the wind. Great coat!

I sort of expected this to have some kind of lining that would make it a suitable replacement for a sweatshirt in the fall/spring, but it's really just a rain jacket. It fits ok, though I got the XL Tall and it's not as long as I'd hoped. It has a lot of huge pockets and it's pretty watertight, but if it had a fleece lining it would have been 100 times more useful for me. It's like wearing a tarp now.
I do not recommend this product.

The coat came very quickly after ordering and worked very well. The color was selected as black. The coat that came was extremely dark blue. Didn't create a problem. Good coat and hood size works very well.

I took this jacket with me on a deep sea fishing trip. The weather was quite damp and cold for much of the day, so I used this jacket over the top of a hooded sweatshirt. The jacket had enough space to accommodate the sweatshirt comfortably. My only real concern is that without an added base layer the jacket may be slightly loose. Given how dry it kept me that is a very minor concern. Highly recommended product.
I would recommend this product.

Very well made jacket and extremely comfortable. I have not had the opportunity to wear it in the rain yet, but I believe it will keep me dry in the worst weather. I'm a big guy (6'2 and 315 lbs. with long arms), so it's nice to have a jacket that fits well and will allow room for layers when the cold weather returns. Also the material feels nice against your skin (not sticky or clammy when its humid out).
I would recommend this product.

I am 6'4" and not exactly the thinnest person and this is a great jacket. Fits extremely well, has no problem handling 10 straight days of wind and rain. I live in the Midwest and it is COLD right now, and even those this is just a shell it does a very good job of blocking the wind and making it feel less cold outside. I wouldn't use it to sleep outside in freezing temps, but if it is 50 and you are caught outside in a tshirt and this for a little while you will be fine.
Very good material and feels like it will stay together for a while. I am very happy with the purchase.
I would recommend this product.

Jacket is very high quality. Just the right fit that I was looking for. Fabric is perfect for this type of jacket with excellent zippers for ease and convenience. This jacket is not too warm and not too cool but is wonderful at cutting the wind. I HIGHLY recommend this jacket if you are looking for a "wind breaker" type of jacket.
I would recommend this product.

Love the jacket. Does exactly what it's supposed to, can't ask for much else. At 6'5" and 190lbs the LT fit perfectly. Very impressed with its durability thus far. I've swung my mountain bike over my back a few times, each time the sharp pedal pins scraping against it. Every time I expect a rip but it comes away clean every time. Awesome jacket!

Got my first chance to wear this coat and loved it. Wasn't hot like with most rain coats and the look is such that I wore it as a business jacket for work and received numerous compliments as to the great look. I have searched for a long time for the perfect rain coat to keep dry in and look good at the same time and in this coat I have found it.
I would recommend this product.

I decided upon this jacket after my old rain coat finally gave out after many years of service. I bought this in tall. I love that Columbia has tall selections as not many companies offer it. This jacket is great. It has a mesh lining which keeps you a bit cooler. I used to forgo rain coats a lot in the summer because I'd just sweat inside of them but this one looks like that won't be a problem. The sleeves are plenty long (I'm 6'2") in the tall but they have velcro adjustments so that solves the problem. I bought the amazon one and it's a little lighter/ brighter than the picture on the website but it's still nice.
I would recommend this product.

My husband is big and tall. Finding the right length for clothes is always difficult but this jacket fits him very well. He really likes all of the pocket access too. For the area we live, this jacket will be well worn.
