Technically, Columbia advertises their "Omni-Shield" products (which this jacket is) as only water resistant/repellant. In my opinion it's not repellant enough to be described as a true rain coat, as it is on Amazon. It's definitely not meant for direct use in bad weather (if you're thinking about pairing it with warmer wear underneath).
Columbia does have a line of jackets/coats branded as "Omni-Tech", which is advertised as water-proof (not resistant). That would have been a better choice for me.
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.
As a preface, I own several other Columbia rain products and have been generally satisfied with their performance,etc. I just came back from a 12 day back-country backpacking trip in NM during "Monsoon Season" where it rains daily and basically elected to replace this jacket with a black plastic garbage bag as it was virtually ineffective at keeping water out. Within minutes (like two) water would seep through the material and begin to drench a fleece I was wearing underneath. This happened to me several times before I gave up and switched to the trash bag for weather protection.
In retrospect I probably should have paid closer attention to which level of water protection it has. Its labeled as Omni-Shield which is merely water-resistant vs Columbia's Omni-Tech designation which is water proof. Although I should have investigated this more closely before purchasing the description on Amazon clearly listed it as water-proof (Description below, please note bullet #5 - WATERPROOF Fabric)
Long-sleeve rain jacket with contrasting yoke and internal draw-chord hem
Packable into hand pocket
Zip-closed hand pockets, drawcord adjustable hem, adjustable cuff tabs
I do not write a lot of product reviews but vowed to do so while out on the trail based on my dissatisfaction with the product.
Bottom line - if you need a waterproof jacket don't buy this one. If you want a more water-proof Columbia product make sure it has a Omni-Tech designation and not Omni-Shield no matter what it says on the product description.
Which is a good looking, very light, water resistant jacket. Suitable for a light wind, drizzly day maybe on the golf course or running some errands. It's not meant for heavy rain or wind and certainly not for keeping the cold at bay. So if that's what you're looking for, this will more than server the purpose.
The sizing was about right. I wear x-large sometimes large and this XL fits well and leaves decent room to move without being too baggy. You can easily swing a golf club with it on. The length is just right since I wear a lot of shirt that don't tuck in so it covers them which I like. It does has a hood, but it's hidden well and the collar lays down nicely.
What kept it from five stars is that it easily wrinkles and retains those wrinkles for a while. If you hang it up after each use and drape it over something for short trips it's fine, but if you throw it in the front seat of your car like I do, it might not look it's best when you put it on to enter a store or work. Tuck it in a golf bag for a while and it will be pretty ugly when you go to use it weeks later.
The other thing is the material tends to stick to your skin if you have a short sleeve shirt on. Not real bad, but again, not what I had in mind. It makes that windbreaker noise too when moving, but that is to be expected.
I know it might sound like I am being pretty critical for a four star rating.Read more ›
