Great JAcket poor quality metal on zipper.
on January 23, 2015
I have had this jacket for over a year, and if I were to rate it on all performance up until yesterday, I would give this jacket a 5* rating, it is a great rain coat. However, yesterday, the metal holding the zipper tab broke from the jacket rendering it pretty much useless. According to Columbia's web site I may be able to get it repaired if I am willing to ship it (at my cost) to them for evaluation. I will likely opt to get it repaired locally as the repair cost are likely to be similar to the shipping costs.
TLDR; great jacket, 5* reduced down to 3* for cheap metal used on the zipper resulting in the zipper breaking.
