Effective and Great for the Price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Columbia Men's Watertight Packable Rain Jacket (Apparel)
Just got back from a Kilimanjaro hike where we had rain and/or snow for half of our trip, and the jacket worked great--no seam problems, and repelled water as advertised. My hiking buddy spent ten times the price on his jacket from another company, but didn't get any real benenfit. Good buy.

Would you say that this jacket would preform around freezing temperatures if layered underneath with say a sweatshirt/hoodie?

No; I think at temperatures that low you'd need another layer in addition to the sweatshirt (depending on the activity--for running? That might work). I had a long-sleeved, heavy t-shirt and a fleece on underneath this jacket on one (calm) night when we had a frost. When it was well below freezing, I had up to four layers beneath it. Hope this helps...
