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, this insanely waterproof shell is fully seam-sealed with bold, external seam tape and features a helmet-compatible hood, 2-way underarm venting and articulated elbows. This shell also features high-tech Light Rail™ zippers on the chest and hand pockets and reflective detailing to keep you in sight at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rain jacket! Love this jacket!! Feels great and looks great. Water sheds off of it and it still breathes great! June 1, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by breathibility low Since as they say: "Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.", my review is not going to focus on the looks of this jacket. Let me just state that for me the features count more than the looks. What made this jacket appealing to me was the promotional statement about permanent water repellency of the outer membrane. This sounds like a great idea since all other conventional rain jackets loose their DWR pretty quickly and when the outer fabric starts wetting out, the breathability collapses. Unfortunately this jacket's breathability turned out to be pretty low. After about 40 minute hike in Columbia Gorge (OR), the inside fabric was totally soaked by sweat, especially the sleeves. Maybe there is a reason why Columbia does not provide any numbers from breathability tests?! On a positive side, it has to be stated that once you stop sweating, possibly on a trail's descent, the jacket dries out pretty fast. My conclusion is that while the concept of the membrane on the outside is one that may have a future, the implementation of this idea in this jacket does not fulfill the promise. It will be interesting to see if a more breathable and durable membrane can be invented or if a really durable water repellency for outer fabrics can be developed. We shall see. In the meantime, this jacket is going to be returned for failing the real life breathability test. May 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Did What I wanted it to do I don't write product reviews but thought this merited my comments. I have been very unhappy with Goretex products when I hike. I over heat quickly and need to have the moisture wicked away so I don't get chilled in cold weather. I have been unable to find a rain jacket to keep me dry and to allow my sweat to evaporate. This past weekend I completed a 36.8 mile hike in the rain and snow. I started the day with 3 layers but quickly went down to just a merino wool t-shirt and my Columbia jacket. I completed my hike in 10 hours and 28 minutes and was comfortable the entire time. I am SO happy I bought this jacket!!! April 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbeatable Rain Protection I have worn this jacket through a number of spring season downpours. The waterproof performance was perfect, with zero wet-out. The fabric is breathable and supported by under arm venting. Based upon this jacket outperforming my expectations, I'm going to buy the pant! RECOMMEND April 11, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Men’s OutDry® Ex Platinum Tech Shell Jacket I own the stinger color. All 3 colors look great and so far I'm very pleased with the Outdry extreme technology of Columbia. Highly waterproof. This particular model has a great breathability due to 2 under arms zippers with 4 additional anterior pockets with meshline behind that allow your sweat to ventilate easily. This shell jacket is also wind proof but won't help in the winter. You gotta wear another layer underneath like a sweater to keep you warm. Jacket runs small (slim fit). Size small is ideally for someone from 5'6"-5'10" slim fit (around 150 lbs) with hem cord adjust. There's barely enough room to add a sweater behind it. Measurements in size S: 20 inches from under arm to under arm. Center front zipper is 30 inches. Back length is 31 inches. Cons: Because the hood of this model is compatible for the helmet so it is big and falls in front cover your eyes. I can't believe for the price of $250. Columbia can't get a hood adjustment loop in the back of the hood. I would recommend this jacket for hikers but not at the price of $250. April 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really Sheds Water The outer fabric does not wet at all. Water beads up and stays beaded. Once it is out of the rain the jacket can be removed and is dry on the outside with a vigorous shake or two. Really like the plethora of pockets. About the only drawback I've found so far is that the 2 way zipper tends to stick a bit when unzipping from the bottom. Have lubricated the teeth with paraffin and works a bit better but still not perfect. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Good Buy Haven't had a chance to try it on a rainy day yet. It's still Winter here. It appears to be the same fine quality I usually get from you folks. However, I was disappointed to find there is no loop to be able to hang it on a coat hook. Just about all of the other coats and jackets I have purchased from you do. Considering the price, I am puzzled as to why this one doesn't. March 16, 2016
