It is very windproof, once zipped up. In fact, with the mediocre breath-ability, I find myself opening the cuff closures and unzipping the jacket a bit, so I don't feel like I'm over-heating.
There is no insulation in this jacket (as I was aware before my purchase). I found it a bit strange to feel cooler wearing the jacket (alone) in colder weather than if I was not wearing it at all - it seems to have a cooling effect when not paired with an under-layer. Pairing this jacket with just one layer of hood-shirt or sweater made the combination effective in wet and windy conditions to about 40°-45°F - down another 5°-10° or so if there was not rain (or sleet) and/or wind.
It almost exceeds my desires for the perfect wind-breaker jacket - wind and water -proof, yet breathable. Alas, it the technology just doesn't seem quite there yet.
At one month of ownership, I noticed an inch-long tear along the seam of the inside of the outer breast pocket. It is possible that it could have been from a business card or a key that had been kept in the pocket for a short time... but these items have never created a hole in any of my other pieces of clothing. I feel disappointed in the durability of the pockets. I hope that the durability of the jacket overall remains intact for years to come as with my other Columbia gear.Read more ›
Features that make this jacket a great fit for our needs (bought one for my wife too, in a different size of course):
--Breathable, but waterproof (as opposed to water resistant)
--no insulating liner (perforated nylon liner=airflow; waterproof material isn't in direct contact=no sweat), so great for rain in mild temps
--inner pocket that the entire jacket folds/packs into as a small bundle for easy transport (you can't 'lose' the pouch you pack your jacket into!)
--bottom 'hem' cinch cord for a snug fit if you don't want wind coming up from the bottom
Ive played serveral rounds of golf in light drizzle to heavy downpoors and its kept me totally dry. It's very light weight which allowed me to stay cool and at the same time was loose/lightweight enought to allow for movement
Id give it a 6 if possible, couldnt be happier...was a great purchase
