Columbia Watertight Rain Jacket - Men'sis rated4.2857out of5by7.
Rated4out of5byfromBest bang for the buck.You won't find a better jacket for the price. All day rain will continue to roll off this jacket's back while you stay dry. Roomy for layering and lightweight for summer downpours. Great jacket.

Rated4out of5byfromlight weightI bought this for wear about town & it works well. Sleeves in the large size were long enough for my 35" sleeve length. Room for fleece or sweater without being overly loose fitting. The fabric is very light weight--comfortable around town but not sure how it would hold up on the trail under pack straps or going through brush. It has a 1-way zipper (i.e., you can't unzip the bottom a few inches when you are seated--but you could use the snaps instead of the zipper). Meets my needs well & it looks good.

Rated4out of5byfromworks greatI took this on a 5 day back pack hunting trip high in the Rockies. Fit great over my coat, kept me dry in hours of rain and snow, breaths well, and dried fast. Very comfortable as a light jacket and a durable work horse when the weather hits. Packability is a bit big, but ended up being worth the extra space.

Rated3out of5byfromDry, comfy, cozy, bulkyThis jacket certainly does its job. I stayed dry in gusty rain, the cut is roomy to accommodate whatever layer(s) you want to wear underneath, and the liner adds extra separation from the elements, making it feel a bit warmer in addition to being easier to slip on & off. All this means a fair amount of bulk & weight, however, making the "packable" self-packing pocket a bit of an optimistic venture. I'd recommend this jacket more for base camp than backpacking.

Rated5out of5byfromTerrific ProductIt doesn't rain much in Colorado, but when it does a lightweight waterproof rain jacket is a must. I love everything about this product. I recently got caught outside in a heavy 3 hour downpour, and this jacket kept my wallet, my phone, and me dry. Impressive performance at a super price!
