Features

OutDry™ Extreme is our first ever waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional raingear uses interior waterproof membranes which don't allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry™ Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell.

Part of the Titanium line, and one of our most technical shells, the OutDry Ex Diamond Shell is a waterproof, breathable, sweat-wicking rain killer that is fully seam-sealed with bold, external seam tape and that features 2-way, underarm venting. Abrasion resistant shoulders, articulated elbows, contoured cuffs and drawcord adjustable hem featuring advanced, silicone grippers all make this jacket ready for some serious alpine action.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Waterproof is an A+ but quality is an F This jacket is extremely waterproof which is great but the good things really end there, for what you get this jacket is overpriced the quality on these jackets are terribly low, the pocket zippers are cheap plastic which will definitely break, and they arent sewed together very well, after a few open and closes threads start to come out and the pockets start to open up which probably means they wont stay waterproof for long the emblems are glued on and after a wash or 2 im pretty positive they will start to peel off the terrible quality in these jackets are becoming known, with just a little bit of searching you can find the EX diamond for a price of about 250-300, way cheaper than Columbia sells them this is upsetting as Columbia is my go to store for outdoor clothing, ill definitely still shop at Columbia but my recommendation will be to wait a bit longer before buying this jacket, i believe prices will go down even more because for such a lack of quality you cant ask a high price point like this and this is becoming clear to outdoor gear retailers June 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worn Rim to Rim at the Grand Canyon on Memorial Day While I only wore it for the first two hours, the surprise was how warm it was in 30 degree windy weather! As you may have read, the arms are extraordinarily long and the aluminum-like decor is totally unnecessary. After that, I cannot imagine a better water-proof / windproof jacket. The finish detail is exquisite, especially on the inside, and the handsome look "rocks"! I can't wait to wear it on my 14ers in Colorado in July! June 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Most waterproof jacket I've ever had, some room for functional improvement Living in Juneau, AK, with 60+ inches of rain annually, I need a durable jacket that can stand up to everything from the commute to work to the mountain ridges. So far, this jacket feels bulletproof. I've yet to have it start to wet-out in any areas, usually the shoulders and around the sleeve cuffs start first. The fabric feels (and sometimes sounds) like tarp material: It's a little more rigid/rubbery than other gore-tex jackets, but it works like a dream, so it doesn't bother me too much. Pit zips are good. It's a little heavier construction, and as a result seems to hold more heat than lighter rain jackets. My biggest criticism is the hood. There's no way to tighten the bill around my face, blows off my head if walking into the wind, and doesn't turn with my head. Others have mentioned the chrome accents being a little too much. I would tend to agree. The design with accented, sealed seams and black shoulders is flashy as-is. The embossed chrome does not tone it down by any means. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Jacket The Diamond Outdry jacket is the best rain jacket I've ever had. The thing is amazing, and has been well executed. Everything from the chin guard to the Wicking fabric is designed with the wearer in mind. My only problem is that there is such a gap in the price between this and the platinum. If the Diamond was priced somewhere around $300 - $350 I think it would've been perfect. April 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps you Dry! After using several different Columbia rain jackets with less than stellar results this one seems to be the real deal. I wasn't sold on the color scheme (white was the only color available in my size) but if you can get past that it's an excellent jacket. A little stiffer than some of the others but seriously...as a professional outdoor photographer you want your clothing and gear to preform how they were designed to and this jacket will keep you dry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by too much bling Great product, comfortable fit and though I've yet to be caught in foul weather I'm looking forward to it. However, the design team got a little carried away with their flagship design. Theres far too much metallic logo work going on here, almost to the point that I returned it. Just tone it down, I dont want to be a walking advertisement for columbia March 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Awesome jacket, too much bling! Definitely a fan of the technology, but didn't end up keeping it because of all the chrome accents. They were too flashy and looked cheap. Looks awesome other than the chrome! Its a very well built jacket, looks like it would hold up well against some abuse on the mountain! March 3, 2016
