Built with the kind of clean style and technical versatility that'll take on snow-bound mountains and rain-drenched cities alike, this highly adaptable interchange jacket combines a lightweight, waterproof and super-breathable 2.5-layer shell and a toasty zip-in liner with both synthetic insulation and thermal-reflective warmth. The result is a toasty, wet-stopping jacket with a shell and liner that perform and look great on their own.

The only complain I have is the storm hood is too loose. It could have been better fit. Overall, I do recommend this jacket if you are looking for something versatile.
Fast forward a day and i've spent the morning in mid 20's weather with moderate activity and the area between the liner and the shell is completely wet with moisture. Oddly enough the wonderful omniheat inner layer somehow kept my skin dry, and no moisture on my skin but that doesn't mean much when a few fabric layers away is wet fabric holding the 20 degree wind which is hitting the shell.
No amount of opening the pockets which looked to double as vents, because their liners were mesh, appeared to help. I then attempted to use the liner alone and found this would in fact keep me warm but was not completely windproof, and had no strength against snow, or rain as the outer of the liner immediately absorbs moisture from its exterior.
All of this was confirmed on day 2 when I attempted to vent all day, and also vent with the front zipper.
The product has written directly on the liner EVAP and states in the literature and in this listing that it would wick moisture and then evaporate it without problem. I gave Columbia an opportunity to address the problem directly but they told me to return the used jacket to the original seller. I also requested Columbia suggest a suitable shell, or some alternate product which may work for me. They seemed uninterested and this will likely be the last Columbia experience I have. I like many 'normals' grew up counting on Columbia to give great bang for buck when it came to performance. Middle class kinda punching up. This reputation requires the product works as advertised or at the very least when it doesn't the original manufacturer gives a crap.
