It has been several years since I purchased a jacket and I am very pleased with this one. I love the Omni Tech for the warmth, it allows me to wear lighter layers underneath so that on extremely cold wet Oregon days I'm not restricted by 7 layers for warmth. The Rain Tech beads the water and it rolls off without soaking through. Great quality jacket, thanks Columbia!

This is a nice jacket. I am tall (6" 2") and tall sizes aren't usually long enough in the body and/or sleeves. The body is long enough to cover my rear and the sleeves are more that long enough.
The only issue is that unless you zip the jacket all the way up the collar doesn't stand up and doesn't fold down nicely (and stay). I do not mind it but the hood can't be tucked in either.
Additionally I chose the black one but it is not black it is actually black in the body and more gray in the sleeves and hood.
If you can get around these few things it is a nice jacket.
I would recommend this product.

i don't like to complain, but i sweat in this jacket. I wore it while commuting on my bike and perspired 5 days strait. I tried it with arm vents up and down (by the way the zipper is backwards, you zip up to open vents), lighter shirts, etc but to no avail. Waterproof part is fine but early spring/late fall to wear while riding.
I do not recommend this product.

When leaving a review such as this, it would be helpful to others if you listed your height and what size you ordered. For all I know you're 5' 6" and ordered a tall by mistake.

I bought this jacket for my 21 year old son who needed a good rain jacket to wear walking to classes in our northwest weather. He is 6'3" with extra long arms and this jacket fit him beautifully! The peat moss color is young and stylish enough for a hip college student plus it keeps him warm and dry.
I would recommend this product.

First of all products run pretty close to sizing, I suggest stepping up one size if you intent to layer clothing, a bit snug otherwise..
Great torso & sleeve length...completely universal, light weight,
and hi-tech. Good color choices in lieu of khaki, black & blue.
Warm & light weight, a great traveling companion! The hood could be a roll up design or hidden. A great product....
I would recommend this product.

So far this appears to be a nice jacket. It would be nice if it was USA made, but I realize that would raise the price. I've worn it at night while walking, during wet weather in the 50's. The lining does work well. You don't realize it until you come back inside and instantly get hot. I was fine at about 50 degrees with just a t shirt, while active. You might need more if not active. The bad side about the lining is that it will probably make you hot while active above 60 degrees. Also, the lining transmits the cold through to your skin by touch, if you have short sleeves on. But that can be avoided with just a long sleeve t-shirt. I'm almost 6' 3" and 170. It's always hard to find a size that works, so I appreciate the tall sizes, which most companies don't do. I got the tall large, but it is probably longer than needed. It comes down to about the crotch and the sleeves leave about an inch of my fingers showing. But you can velcro the cuffs. A standard large may have also worked, but I kept the tall size, because it's better to be too long than too short.
I would recommend this product.

This is a great looking jacket and the Tall has arms long enough to fit my son well. He is 6'4" and has had trouble finding a nice lightweight, jacket that actually comes to his wrists. This jacket fits him perfectly.

I am a female that purchased for myself the male jacket. My reason for purchasing the mens jacket was because I wanted something longer that would cover my thighs a bit. This is a fantastic jacket, I dont have the bulkiness which makes it difficult to drive with it on. My only complaint is that for men and women you should make a jacket like this that is longer so that our legs will stay as warm as the upper half. Other than wanting this jacket to be longer, I have no complaints. I am from Florida so being in Colorado was a shock in regards to weather. This jacket makes me feel right at home now.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased this jacket to have a rain coat with some lining for warmth. I didn't get to wear the jacket because it is small. I did like the weight, quality and color of the jacket. I would reorder but the next size was not available.

This omni-tech jacket fit me perfectly, and I am 6'5". I love that this omni-tech system really does keep me warm, including my arms, without being a bulky coat. The water proof / wind proof part is also fabulous. It is really a great all around jacket; and I got it on sale. Yay!!

Fit is right on. I'm 6'7", 265 lbs. I got a 2XT. The arms of the 2XL are too short, these are perfect. It's not terribly warm, but then it's really an enhanced waterproof windbreaker. It repels water.

I ordered this jacket in the Large-Tall size and it fits me great (6'5" w/ average build). Sleeves are plenty long and all seams/workmanship are top quality. Omni-heat lining works better than I expected. Your wondering what the "but..." refers to? The color isn't exactly what is depicted on the website pictures--I ordered the "black" and in the online pics that jacket looks completely black with perhaps some dark dark grey fabric on the body of the jacket. The actual article is 'true black' on the body and a sort of 'textured gray' color on the sleeves. The sleeves are more of a medium grey color when viewed against the rest of the jacket. It's still a very sharp looking jacket, but not what I had expected and not all black.
I would recommend this product.
