Rated 1 out of 5 by from Durability lacking. Bought this right when it showed up in store. Loved the OutDry waterproof aspect. Sheds rain very easily. Since pockets are not isolated from interior, forget putting anything made of paper in them. Pockets are cavernous. Hood is not adjustable, but can wrap around bike helmet. 2-layer membrane is borderline breathable; not what I expected for technology that discarded a layer. Used this for mountain biking, tennis, basketball, pickleball, running, and yard work. Left forearm completely delaminated after 9 months; outer layer flaked away like torn tissue paper. Returned for a full refund; ironically, on the day of the return, this jacket was on clearance. Next time I will look for something more robust.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Innovative fabric; poor fit This "Gold" rain shell has a lot of potential. However, like the Diamond model, the poor hood design severely compromises the overall fit of the jacket. When you adjust the hood so you can see out, the jacket pulls up on your shoulders and down on your head. The result is an tightness that is very uncomfortable and restrictive to movement. The only Columbia OutDry model that has a good hood design that does NOT restrict movement nor pulls down on your head is the Platinum model -- it is made for wearing with or without a helmet and can be adjusted to fit very comfortably.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waterproof and breathable; poor fit & finish The hood is annoying. Once I get it adjusted as close as it is going to get, the shock cord lock thing digs into my neck if I turn my head. The front of the jacket is a slab, it's not a flattering fit. The material is innovative and simply works, if a bit noisy. The zippers are good, but there aren't nearly enough pockets (nothing on the inside.) After some extensive testing, it's going to be my backup jacket to keep in the car, and unfortunately not my go-to activity shell. Hopefully I have better luck with The North Face GTX rain jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Killer jacker. I got the black which is more like a Charcoal or super dark grey. The waterproof membrane is reversed so its on the outside rather than the inside. The jacket is incredible in rain! Completely waterproof and dosent wet out at all. The fit is solid although it could be just a tad bigger around the waist and I felt the sleeves are just a tad too long. The hood provides great coverage and can be completely adjusted with the pull strings inside and the tab on the back. The jacket dose not get clammy inside at all. The only reason I am giving this a 4 and not a 5 is because the fabric picks up oils and stains and is more noticeable than other jackets. The color choices and matching tape could be better. I think it weighs around 12-13oz and this jacket will be replacing every other rain jacket for backpacking/outdoor activities. Although its not ultralight, im perfectly happy to carry around a few more oz for what this brings to the table. Almost perfect...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite possibly the best shell out there. I have owned a lot of shell jackets over the years, I have spent over $100 and as little $39 and little difference in outcome. Some lose their repellency very quickly, others soak few after a time in the rain. But this baby what can I say, dry as a bone. Others have said it does not wick very well I think it wicks better than others I have owned. My only beef and a small one, is the size, not true at alI, typically I wear a large but this large swallows me. The up side is it leaves lots of room for a underlayer in the fall. I base this on again other shells I own or have owned.

How much does a large weigh? Also what is the breath-ability ratings of the outdry extreme fabric.

Asked by: Andy12345
This jacket weighs 12.1 ounces. Unfortunately, the vendor does not provide the breathability rating.
