There's a soft layer of mesh for the lining, which feels nice, but don't expect it to keep you warm by itself--very good for a spring jacket, but in winter definitely need to layer.
About the fit: it's hard for me to fit jackets sometimes. I'm 6'1" but 175 pounds and don't like my clothing to fit too baggy, so I went with the medium. It's length is fine--like in the picture. The bottom has an adjustable elastic thing too so you can bring it in if need be. I like the gray color. I would buy again.
In one of the pockets you'll notice a "packable" tag. Pull that pocket so it's inside out. Now stuff the jacket into it. The pocket zipper is double-sided so you can zip it up once you're done. It's not a tiny package, but not too bad.
Color: The "dark backcountry" is badly misrepresented in the photos. It is not a dark olive green, but more of a bright, medium John Deere green. I actually like it, but be advised that it is quite different from the photo. My photo is shot in diffused natural light.
Sizing: I'm 6'0 160lb with a lean, runner's build. The arms on the medium were cut way too wide, so I went for the small. It fits me nearly perfectly, but those with 34" waist or larger should order a medium. I usually wear a medium, so you may want to go down a size if you like a close fit–length on the arms and waist are generous.
I will be reordering my second choice and I hope the color matches.
Regardless, this jacket is well made and similar the an older Columbia Titanium rain jacket I had bought 10 years ago. A few exceptions, seemed to be sized "slightly" smaller than the older Columbia Titanium. I would recommend ordering a size up if you will be layering or wear it during "technical" (bending over, kneeling, hiking) activity...remember that other than shoulder and chest area pay attention to hip room. I usually wear a medium sized shirt (5' 8" / 16 neck / 32 sleeve / chest 41 / waist 35 / hips 40) and ordered a large. If I was to wear this simply as a rain jacket I would have opted for medium. This jacket drapes well, allows for wide range of movement (even with a heavy sweatshirt worn underneath) and covers down over your buttocks.
1) No venting under the arms (which I liked in the Titanium)
2) No zippered inner fleece liner (which was an option with the Titanium).
1) Has the same flap over the zipper to keep H2O out.
2) Has meshed lining which keeps air flowing between you and the inside surface of jacket, pack (very comfortable).
3) Lightweight and packable within itself (pocket)
I had looked at a several Columbia jackets that were on the rack at a big box outlet but they did not have selection of sizes or colors and I believe you will be satisfied with this as a rain jacket and then some in reasonable winter conditions with proper under garment laying.
The negatives: 1) I wish it had one or more internal pockets for mobile phone, billfold, etc., 2) I'm not a fan of the Velcro tabs along the zipper track. They just get in the way of opening the jacket.
It does have sleeve 'snuggers' at the wrists and the hood has a drawstring tighter. Recommended as a very-good quality, light rain jacket. It gave perfect protection from a week of drizzle along the Danube this summer ('17).
