4.0 out of 5 stars Great jacket for light warmth and rain, February 23, 2012
This review is from: Columbia Men's Glennaker Lake Front-Zip Rain Jacket with Hideaway Hood (Apparel)
Got this as a gift for a friend and it turns out to be one of those jackets you just grab and wear all the time.

Unfortunately, it is hard to choose the color here because the colors have those creative names that don't relate to anything you could guess, so I will list what they are here because I had to research them anyway.

1. Red Velvet is a deep almost burgundy red, kind of a cranberry.
2. Antique Moss (my fave) is a bright, yellowish green (very visible)
3. Tusk is a dark gray
4. Blue Jay is a medium blue, slightly green-toned
5. Grill (contrast color) is a charcoal or black tone
6. Amazon is a forest green (another really nice color)

There is a storm hood, and the jacket is water-resistant and stain-resistant (this is the "omni-shield) and it dries up fairly quickly. The pockets zip closed.

This is just the kind of jacket I myself like to pack along for a trip when I am not sure of the weather. My only criticism is that for me, I prefer a longer jacket to cover part of the thigh area, as that keeps me mostly dry. But for convenience, a short jacket is the easiest to carry and pack.

Thanks for your review. Do you have any experience with the Columbia Men's Watertight Jacket that sells for approximately $5 less and has a different look? What are the key differences other than the style?
Thanks!

Is the fabric breathable? When you are active, does it allow your skin to breathe, or does it make you sweat profusely, because the fabric does not breathe?

Thanks for the info.

I sweat a lot, so yes. But Your Mileage May Vary. Nylon always makes me sweat.

Well, then, that's my whole point. The fabric doesn't breathe, causing you to sweat.
