Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Raincoat This raincoat is PERFECT for the Pacific Northwest! It is warm and yet breathable. It is rainproof, water repellent, and just all around perfect for our weather for 9 months a year! December 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best rain jacket ever This is the rain jacket you're looking for. I love the snaps on the zipper flap. Much classier than the cheaper Velcro. I only wish the Dr. Downpour came in a bright yellow color for visibility. Good job Columbia! December 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket for the Irish weather I just returned from two weeks in Ireland which is a place that it rains - a lot. I bought this jacket last year for my trip to Ireland in 2015 so this was the second time it made the trip with me. When you go to Ireland you always take four things - rain jacket, umbrella, waterproof boots and pants that dry quickly. This jacket is perfect for Ireland. It is well made with lots of great pockets for keys and cell phones. The jacket does have some filling so it does provide some warmth which is a plus for the Irish weather. I ordered the 2XL and it does run just a bit large but I prefer the longer sleeves. I like the fact that the hood can be tucked in out of sight. It is a good looking jacket that served me well and it will make the trip next year. September 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great Runs a little big. Great looking jacket. September 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Comfortable The main attractive feature--at least to me-- is snap buttons, rather than trying to find the end of the zipper, especially in poor light. Trying to put the jacket on is a snap (pun intended)! The fabric is also very comfortable and supple - moves with you. April 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional Everyday Jacket This is a great all-around jacket for year-round use. It has just about everything I could need with a couple of exceptions. Both side pockets are large and useful for hand-warming and carrying things without looking bulky and are zippered. The hood stores away and is a necessity here in the Northwest where it rains frequently. And it breathes well in the humidity we experience here. Velcro cuffs for adjustment. There is a wallet-type zippered pocket on the left inside chest that is real handy for a wallet or cell phone, but just, and "if" you are right-handed... If you're a Southpaw well, good luck with it, unless you're ambidextrous. Two outside easy access flap chest pockets deep enough for sun-glasses or quick access to your cell phone. There are two inside right chest slot pockets (stacked) for I assume a cell phone and maybe a checkbook, but here is the problem... These two pockets are hard to access and barely usable because of the small sizes. I own four of these jackets in different colors, for different uses, as I am a Photographer, and I find these pockets kind of useless. I think another right-hand (inside) zippered chest pocket for a passport or lefties accessing a wallet would really be more useful. For my own selfish purposes, I would really like to see two long left and right map pockets on the inside with Velcro closures (as in military field jackets) as these are quite useful for carrying I-pads, magazines, lenses, and compact cameras (use your imagination), when the weather is bad, and an inside draw string to cinch the waist to keep out drafts. Also a double zippered front would be real useful as well (again, use your imagination). I would then have to conclude that this is the perfect multi-purpose jacket for just about any use, and be would be willing to spend the extra increase in price, if reasonable. However as it stands this is a great jacket and exceptional value for the money. Very stylish while being utilitarian, and the quality is excellent. My go-to jacket of choice. Excellent jacket for layering, and wet weather, light enough for cool Summer nights, also Spring and Fall. April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket Bought this jacket for rainy spring, summer and fall days in Chicago. I was looking for something that's not too warm but also not something very lightweight (I hate cold weather and being cold) and this jacket delivered. I can wear this jacket with just a t-shirt underneath or with a sweatshirt and feel comfortable. It repels water like nobody's business; I used this jacket in a drizzle as well as a downpour and my upper body was 100% dry. My only negative is that the jacket could have been a little longer. Other than that, great jacket that looks great and does a perfect job. April 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buttons After having my favorite Columbia coat collar chewed up by the attached velcro strips I immediately rushed to the Columbia Store after watching the video on their website showing that the Dr. Downpour had buttons on the lapel. After test fitting it at the store I ordered the navy version online and am now seriously considering purchasing another Dr. Downpour. Lightweight, ripstop, waterproof, and plenty of pockets, I'm loving it. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted My previous Gore-Tex jacket was 12 years old and it was time for a new one. I was looking for something that worked both for outdoors and to wear to the office. This style did both. Looks good, very waterproof and functional. Enough pockets to make me happy. The jacket is true to size, but can accomodate a vest or light quilted jacket underneath. My only minor quibbles are I wish the front zipper was two-way and the hand pockets were lined. March 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Rain Jacket Ever First, this jacket runs large. That's OK though - I do not consider it a summer time rain jacket but a fall and winter rain jacket. There is room for layers underneath. It repels water and has kept me dry and major down pours - as the name implies. February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Liquid Sunshine Companion This is the rain gear I have always looked for. I like all the interior pockets and in particular having a wallet zippered pocket AND two other pockets for cellphone, notebook and/or stylus and pen. All the exterior pockets serve my needs to a tee. This rain defier has clever hood adjustments with a generous face protection. I am very pleased with my purchase. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Husband's new favorite jacket! Picked this out for my husband for his occasional long commute to work (car, ferry, train) and he absolutely loves it. Nice enough for the office, lightweight and yet paired with a fleece vest warm enough. He has been very surprised how much he likes it! December 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Water runs right off The first day I got this I was out in a heavy downpour the rain just beaded right off and I was completely dry. Very comfortable, I'm completely satisfied with this rain gear. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by fit for me Excellent great send me moremore. December 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why did I wait so long to replace my old raincoat?!! I have had the chance to wear this jacket to a couple of cold and rainy college football games. It has very convenient pockets for all the things I carry and no, I'm not talking flask, though I could. Kept me dry and fits comfortably over my layers of warmth. I could not be happier with this purchase. Really like being able to roll the hood into the collar. November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like the stow-away hood Great and practical stow away hood October 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Performance in a casual style This jacket is awesome! It's totally waterproof and looks classy. It's a little bit longer with a great hood and lots of pockets for wallet, passport and phone. It's not too bulky to use as a travel piece and I'm comfortable on the rainy tarmac or hiking through the forest. July 13, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware! The Columbia logo on the chest is not the same color as shown in the pictures! I bought this jacket because I liked how the logo color complimented the gravel color of jacket. I was extremely disappointed that the logo was the same color as the jacket and does not stand out. It may seem like something small and petty, but the only reason I bought this jacket was because of that logo. Aesthetics mean everything! It's the little things that could have made this jacket great. Shame, guess I will be sticking with North Face. May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase As someone that has a mile commute each way in Chicago, this has been a great jacket. While not ideal for colder days, this has been great so far for Spring. We have had a few steady to heavy rains and I have stayed completely dry. Even the items in the outside breast pockets stayed dry in a steady rain. Additionally, the jacket looks very sleek and professional. This was a great purchase for me and my needs. April 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Coat My coat arrived on a rainy day. I took it out of the package and wore it right away. It really is waterproof. The pockets are roomy and the hood protects from wind and rain. Very comfortable. April 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good The only issue I have with this jacket is that the hood slides down over my face March 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good rain jacket for the price. Like the jacket. Wish it was a darker brown. March 15, 2015
