The jacket has done well for me. Good quality, good venting with pit zips, and open hand pockets.
Used this for a shell this past weekend on a winter kayak overnight camp trip here in Michigan. Temps were 36 the first day and 16 the next. The Pour Osity kept me dry and comfortable and stayed flexible. Obviously I had on multiple layers underneath for insulation. No issues even with constant paddling movement. The hood also stayed in place and is comfortable. I was surprised at how lightweight the jacket is. The only possible negative I can think of is the fabric is a bit noisy. Sounds similar to opening a bag of chips. Mainly notice it when you're putting it on or taking it off. It is really not a big deal. I will live with that for the strengths of breathable, lightweight, and flexible fabric.
I would recommend this product.

Like all columbia gear, this is very well made with an excellent fit for layering under without being too large. I especially like the asymetric cuffs-at first it seemed like a gick but having weathered several ling down pours i see the comfort and dryness added by the design. I withheld a star becaus i want to see how the waterproofing holds up. Great jacket.

Pour Osity Stretch Jacket was a gift from my wife prior to a work trip in the rainy season to the jungles of Peru and Papua New Guinea. What a great jacket - stayed dry and my ability to work in the jacket without the normal constraints of the jacket made the gift a winner.
Great addition to my outdoor apteral... This will be a great jacket once the Pacific NW moves into the winter rain.
I would recommend this product.

I recently utilized this product during my photo shoots in Minnesota and Hawaii. At times it rained extremely hard, I was able to quickly utilize the product with a very high degree of success, with absolutely no issues. I will recommend the product to my followers!
Best,
Mike

The jacket is incredible. The detail and extra features exceed what is listed on the site. From wearing numerous rain jackets from different company this makes the others obsolete. The omni-dry is better than goretex in all categories. Its waterproof. Doesn't rip. And breathes as well as something waterproof can. 100/100
I would recommend this product.
