About this deal

It has a double storm flap over the zipper that stays shut without the use of Velcro, so you can zip your coat while wearing gloves and they won’t snag. Not only does this prove to be relatively ineffective during any kind of serious activity, doing so leaves your pocket’s contents exposed to the elements. The hood is adjustable with a Velcro strap (though testers didn’t need to use this feature), and it’s deep enough for most hairstyles, except high buns, and hair thicknesses. If you’ve visited the Steens Mountains that tower over the Alvord Desert in Eastern Oregon, you know that the area is well known for cold, high winds and how desolate it is.

Columbia claims that the gold material reflects heat better, while the smaller dots add to the reflective surface without restricting the flow of excess heat. The Omni-Shield means rain beads and falls off, allowing the jacket to pack away dry in your pack or a corner of your suitcase. We considered some coats with more-limited sizing if we couldn’t find similar well-made options with more-inclusive sizing. Packability – most lightweight jackets will stow away into one of the pockets making a small parcel that fits neatly into your pack.This coat has definitely been watertight through some really heavy rainfall where I live, in Washington state. From the concealed storm hood to the waterproof coating, right on down to the comfortable and Omni-tech thermal reflective lining along the interior, this is an all-weather jacket that’s itching to be put to the test. Choice of sizes and colors – across the whole range, you can get extra tall, small, and extra large sizes with plenty of color options. This jacket is the perfect waterproof shell for wet weather, pouring rain, snow and light rain included.

This December in Georgia we’ve seen mostly gray skies with temperatures from warm to cool and lots of rain. Unlike many Columbia shells, the Earth Explorer offers you under arm venting for those days when you wish to truly exert yourself on the trails. The jacket’s lack of pit zips is a major downfall in this department—instead, it relies on the mesh-lined hand pockets to regulate body temperature. Whether you’re facing heavy rain, snow, or extreme conditions, our seam-sealed jackets will take care of you.

Insulation without bulk – synthetic down and Omni-Heat thermal reflective coating keeping your body heat inside the jacket.

Exceptions are the EvaPOURation and Earth Explorer jackets, Columbia shells for men and women that supplies arm vents – see below. And don’t forget to check out our womens puffer jacket collection to explore our line of insulated womens jackets. The Watertight II features two handwarmer pockets, one of which is a stuff pocket with reversal zipper, allowing for a tight little package. With its light fabric and mesh lining, the Watertight II is more breathable than our other picks—none of the testers worried about overheating. Hikers and backpackers fall on both ends of the spectrum: some prefer the unparalleled breathability.It allows the inner lining to absorb water droplets from your skin, spread it over a greater surface area, and let your body heat evaporate the water away.
