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.

Great on the trail, the fully seam-sealed Titanium OutDry Ex with bold, external seam taping is a problem solver when it comes to a soaking rain. The bonded, horizontal baffles keep the 700 fill power goose down in place and eliminates the cold spots. This versatile down jacket is perfect for just about anywhere it’s cold and wet.

This product is made with 100% responsibly sourced down. We are committed to ensuring the highest industry animal welfare guidelines. Learn More »

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MEN’S OUTDRY™ EX GOLD DOWN HOODED JACKET Didn't really know what to expect with this jacket, but it's awesome. Extremely comfortable and compacts down pretty good for travel/backpacking. Highly recommend it for anyone who goes backpacking in varying weather conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to try it to believe it! This jacket works incredibly well with everything that's been thrown at this season so far. I've done a lot of volunteer course build and prep with Freestyle Skiing where you are working up a sweat then doing a lot of standing all in the same day. I have to say I've never experienced anything that's worked as good as this jacket. The outside repels water and wet snow far better than anything I've experienced and it last the entire day outside. But it's the inside of the jacket that is quite impressive, it stays dry no matter how hard I work up a sweat. I've now purchased the same jacket but in a different colour just because I love the functionallity and the look so much. Keep up the great work Columbia!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally happy with a Columbia jacket. l bought l few Columbia jackets since last fall (2016) and l was very disappointed with my purchases (they mainly went back). Basically, l had to figure two things: 1- Columbia sizes seem to have gone up: my regular size is L. In Columbia sizes that means XL. Therefore, l have to buy a M size for the Columbia jackets to fit me. (l'm 5'10 - 174 pounds, fit, just a little bit of belly.) 2- Color: Columbia not always display colors accurately on their products (as other reviewers have mentioned). (And l say that being completely aware of the fact that some monitors aren't good at representing colors accurately, need calibration, etc.) In the case of this particular jacket, the 'deep water' color looks very much the same on the pictures and in reality. Now, having said the above, l must say l love this jacket. l liked it from the very moment l took it off the bag. Materials seem resistant, tough. You can tell attention to detail has been paid when looking at the binding on the cuffs or the 'chin guard' (as Columbia calls it). Sure, most jackets have the latter, but it's the way it's been implemented that I like: You do the zip up and the chin guard goes on the right place (no need to adjust it using both hands). l love the style. lt looks very sporty. l've had a few people telling me they really like my jacket. The fit is supposed to be 'active' (quoting Columbia: "Body skimming fit with end-use mobility in mind."). Well, as l said, l'm already on a smaller size than l'd usually buy (M instead of L) and l certainly still have room over my belly (l could put 3 or 4 kilos and the jacket would still fit me). The problem with the fit is: either you go a size smaller than yours and have a tighter fit (more stylish) at the expense of feeling your underarms when extending the arms in front of you; or you go your size, have plenty of room for movement, but then (as another reviewer stated) it'll seem the jacket was designed for a "pregnant man." Now, keep in mind l don't like wearing extra layers, but just a thermal t-shirt and a polo underneath. If you're looking to wear a fleece with it, then your 'normal size' (L in my case) should be your better option. Will it keep you warm and dry? l've tried it down to 30ºF (-1ºC) and l was perfectly fine, wearing a short sleeve thermal t-shirt and a long sleeve polo (then jeans and winter boots, gloves and the excellent Columbia neck gaiter). l've walked almost 1 hour under light rain and I was completely dry when l got back home. l think the waterproof capabilities of this jacket are to be trusted. Conclusion: Thanks to Columbia "Greater Rewards" program, l got this jacket at a ridiculous price. At $186 it still is a good buy (as long as you have a parka or another 'real winter' jacket to use when the very freezing days come). Pictures: I don't have a 'protuberant belly,' it's the cut, the fit of the jacket that creates that 'belly like' shape (due to the extra room in that area). That day we were at 30ºF (sunny day).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable execution of a great idea I really like this jacket. A lot. So much so that when my first jacket got ripped and I was given a full refund, I bought a second one. Why do I like it so much? Well, it does everything well. It is the best rain barrier I have owned--and I have owned a ton of them, from the first L.L. Bean first generation Gortex in 1977 to the latest Barbour. I have worn it through blows, mists, and downpours and through all it has kept me dry and warm. To be sure, it looks different from any other rain jacket with its plastic finish of the waterproof barrier. I like this though; to me it speaks to the newness and uniqueness of the product. I admire and trust Columbia for the same reason - it is constantly innovating, trying new materials and designs in order to keep its customers cool when it's hot, warm when it's cold and dry when it's wet. I own a lot of Columbia gear for numerous sports and it has always served me well. Innovative design takes risks,however, and this coat reflects this. For example, it appears not to be sewn together, but rather taped together. This takes the role of seam selling tape to a new place. The result is a light, watertight finish. The risk with this approach is that with sufficient strain, the tape can give way - which is how I ripped the seam of my first jacket at the armpit, an injury which Columbia elected to refund for rather than repair. What lesson do I draw from this? Well, I'd demur taking the jacket into true wilderness where my life literally depended on the integrity of my gear. Or I might just take some duct tape to slap on it in an emergency. Unquestionably though, I would make a conscious, informed decision, balancing the desire for light weight performance against risk of harm. On the whole, I recommend the jacket enthusiastically. You will find it to be the lightest and driest jacket you own. (The jacket is cut half way between regular and athletic - the McDonald's fans should think twice.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept but poor materials This is the second Outdry Ex Gold Down Coat I am sending back within a few weeks of having. I bought one from a box store and it ripped out at the seam within three weeks of wearing on the inside of the coat at the right armpit. The second one I purchased ripped in exactly the same spot within two weeks of wearing it. I have several Columbia products that are the same size and have not had that problem with any of them. The coat could run smaller than the rest of their coats that I have, but it fits the same, I just dont think it's as strong as the other products. I am really discouraged by this because this was such a good idea. The coat itself was extremely waterproof and very adequate for it's purpose. It kept me warm on a night that was 18F with a steady 15 mile per hour wind with gusts even higher at times, with only a tshirt on underneath. Moreover it was not to hot when wearing it in 45F weather with a strong rain. It did not get wet and kept the down insulation dry so it could do its job. So in that area Columbia nailed it. However with the product quality being sub par for Columbia I am afraid I cant recommend this coat to anyone. It would have been the perfect coat for late fall/early spring and mild winter days. I am highly disappointed, now I will have to find a layering system that will do the same thing. I hate layering. After saying all of that though I want to commend Columbia on their warranty process, even though I had to mail the item back at my cost they still gave me a store credit for far more than the purchase price of the coat. I will continue to shop Columbia but I will stay away from this product in the future. I am 5'6" 225 pounds, so maybe if you are smaller you will be able to find a fit that works better for you, and will not experience the same problems. For me with this coat that's not an option. As the large actually fits me very good with no limited range of movement, that's why I am surprised that it keeps ripping out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light Grey is the new Dark Charcoal As other reviewers have pointed out, the Dark Charcoal (I think formerly "Black") option is not well represented in the photo. Otherwise, its warmth and resistance to water seem to be as advertised. I haven't put it through the proper paces to test the breathability of the fabric, but the jacket kind of feels like wearing a crinkly garbage bag, so I'm a bit skeptical but optimistic. This is definitely a "function over form" type of jacket for me, but that tends to be my style anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Add to cart now Great jacket!! Very lightweight so it is versatile and can be worn for all activities, keeps you really warm and completely dry. It's perfect for rainy, snotty weather. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial Impressions These are my initial impressions of Columbia's Outdry EX Gold Hooded Down Jacket...however, I will check back again later with an updated review after putting it through the wringer. Though a bit lengthy, I hope this review is helpful. I purchased the "dark Charcoal," formerly "Black" color. It is medium gray, at best. I chose this coloration, merely because I did not want the seam banding to be a contrasting color. So I'm okay with the color, though would have preferred it black (which helps with absorbing heat and hiding dirt). My purpose for this purchase selection was for backpacking, paddling and bikepacking extended trips with high probability of inclement weather. With the thought of combining two separate jackets into just one...saving weight and space while providing dry warmth. The jacket fits very big. I could not locate this specific jacket at any retailer or outlet location (tried multiple outdoor stores in 9 different states during my travels). I tried on an Outdry EX Shell in Medium but it was too tight through the chest and shoulders...the large fit much better...but this particular jacket is sized different from all other Columbia products (I own numerous). I can ordinarily fit in a Large from any company. For reference, I'm 6'0," 185 lbs, 32" waist, 46" chest, with a fingertip to fingertip wingspan of 75." So for the Large to be sized big...it's big. The positives: I hiked a fast-paced 5 miles in a light sprinkle. The exterior "rubbery" material caused the water to bead up and run off. Because of the welded vs. stitched seams...there was no penetration of water. The jacket is roomy, which permits ample layering. I particularly appreciated the roominess of the hood. It is large enough to fit a bicycle or climbing helmet underneath and zipped up without restrictions...nor was there any tightness in the chin area. The material appears and feels durable. The interior material is soft against the skin and comfortable. In 32 degree, breezy, overcast conditions I was comfortable with a long sleeved t-shirt underneath. Pockets aplenty. Two exterior zip side pockets were very roomy...and the two oversized interior pockets were cavernous. The hood cinch cord pulls the hood opening tight, but took a little work due to the newness/stiffnes of the jacket. The hem cord, drew the bottom of the jacket tighter, but cording looped down on the sides (should've been located inside the pockets like other manufacturers). While it doesn't pack as small as some of its down-hooded jacket competitors...it packs down plenty small enough for me...still smaller than a rain shell and a down jacket. The sleeves did not ride up on me during activities. The negatives: I do not prefer the loose elastic wrist openings...cold air found its way up when wearing only a t-shirt underneath. Nor do I enjoy the large waistline, which also permits drafts. When hiking in the rain, the weather varied between 42 and 52...by mile 4 the interior was beginning to feel clammy (not quite like wearing a coated nylon jacket...but close). Upon removal of the jacket, water beads were all along the interior welded seams and the fabric felt damp (however, the jacket dried within a half hour). Pit zips would be a wonderful addition. The front and pocket zippers are not waterproof, while I did not experience leakage...in a deluge, I suspect there would be. I found the zippers to be two-handed affairs...perhaps that, too, is due to the newness of the jacket. The pockets are only lined on the exterior with down, and with the draft beneath the jacket I felt the cold on my palms through the thin interior material. Even though the down tubes are narrow, because of the exterior waterproof material, it bunches up and is "poofy" when seated. Being a guy, its not that big of a deal (unsure how the women's jackets address this). I do have a question on how I will repair this jacket should I snag the exterior on thorns, thistles, branches, etc. That could end up being unsightly with glued-on patches...but any field repair job is unsightly. I certainly would not want an ember from the fire to land on this jacket... Overall, I believe I will enjoy the functionality of this jacket and the purpose for which I chose this over many other brands that I was comparing it with. Form follows function for me and I have always been contented with my Columbia clothing. I'm not abusive with my possessions, but I am not gentle either...and I fully expect products to perform and last. I will be packing this jacket rather than a down jacket and a weatherproof shell on all this year's excursions. I'll update this review upon further use in varying conditions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A plastic bag The water proofing of this product is fantastic! I really love that it does not absorb the water at all and runs right off. That said, it does not breath anywhere close to what is advertised-- If I were wearing a plastic bag shell with a moist, absorbent, puffy lining (the inner lining is very absorbent). The bottom of the jacket is extremely tight around the hips, and I have fairly narrow hips, so I do not know how anyone else can tolerate the fit. Lastly, the "glued" seam on the inner pocket began separating within the first week. Bad product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad stitching 1st problem-Color, said it was black but it is not black. My daughter ordered another coat (style) with this purchase and it was black. Not sure why they list a black option. 2nd problem-Stitching under the right armpit came apart either in construction or during the first time it was worn. Seems just came apart and the down was everywhere. 3rd problem-Coat felt and sounded like it was made of plastic. Too noisy! Positive note-The coat was warm. Wore it on a 20 degree night in Chicago with a long sleeve tee underneath and it was perfect for keeping out the cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dry dry dry The outdry material is amazing. In the pouring rain, it does not get wet, water beads up and runs off no matter how long or how wet it is. I’ve never had a jacket that stays this water proof ever. I’ve worn it skiing in wet conditions it was warm and did not get clammy like I expected given the feel of it. I will be purchasing more items made with this material! I'm 6'2" 230lbs the XL fits well. Sleeves are a little short and tight but that's every jacket on me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grey is the new black This is a great rain jacket as long as the temperature remains above freezing. It's really not the winter jacket that I was looking for. Maybe it was a bad idea to purchase online without seeing the jacket physically. Furthermore the online black jacket is grey , and it fits much larger than the labeled size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and dry! Very nice jacket, keeps you warm with low loft and dry with columbias out dry tech! I wish the inside was a bit softer since I usually use this with a short sleeve underneath but that's just do to my climate area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Discoloration after a month I purchased this jacket in the deep water color and I've noticed after casual use in a clean environment, the jacket is starting to turn black. I have washed the blackened parts using GearAid tech wash and the black color is still there. I have no idea why this is happening, I havent even gotten to go cross country skiing with it yet! I hope this is covered under warranty- there simply is no reason for a product of this price to start to turn color after literally 1 month.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Black color option is actually "Grey" Love the jacket but the color is far from being the color black. The picture does not match the color. Was not not able to use it on my trip since I had to send it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large - but awesome jacket My fiance bought this jacket in the Deep Water color. While he always wears size M, recently in Columbia clothing he has had to buy smalls (he has older Columbia shirts that are size M). So he bought this jacket in a M and had to return it for a S. Even the small is a little large around the shoulders. It is not as bad when he is wearing many layers underneath. Besides sizing, the jacket is well crafted and incredibly warm. We are reaching the mid-20s now and he still stays very warm. We have not tested the water proof yet- but you can tell by the material and structure that it will hold up against water just fine. We are very pleased with the purchase and would definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good jacket Ive owned the jacket for about 1 month now. So far I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Its only been about 40 degrees so far, but i have stayed plenty warm with just 1 shirt on underneath. I wore the jacket in pouring rain for about 2 hours, stayed completely dry. I wear a size small, at 5ft 8, 165lbs, fits good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good but not a winter coat Looks stylish and thick in the photos but is actually pretty thin and looks plastic in real life. I purchased it in black but it looks more like gray and not even charcoal black. Thought it would be a good winter coat per the advertisement and insulation materials, but I was cold in high 40s low 50s temps. Wore another down jacket underneath and it was still cold. This is more of a fall jacket than a winter jacket. Wish they put temperature ratings on these. Maybe they do and I just didn't see it. I guess this would be good if you where active and generated a lot of heat for this garment to retain and lose some of it for comfort, but not for the every day errands or walking around the city or neighborhood. I like that is light and rugged but not warm enough for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MEN’S OUTDRY™ EX GOLD DOWN HOODED JACKET Columbia has once again nailed a wonderful product. This jacket stops the water, doesn't allow wind to penetrate , light weight and warm. I wear this daily and i purchased 2, one for my lady and she loves it. You don't get sweaty inside it just walking around. It's not bulky or making obnoxious noises either when moving. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry and breathable I recently bought this needing a jacket that provides some warmth, (but not heavy duty warmth), and keeps me dry during the Portland rainy winters. I first used this during the 2 massive storms in the PNW that brought several inches of rain. I was out walking deer trails in the downpour with just this and a tshirt on, (around 50f) and I was almost too warm and absolutely dry. Despite being warm and walking around in mud, no sweating as that it's surprisingly breathable. I can wear this in and outdoors and due to it's breathability I don't overheat, but it keeps me warm outside too. Unlike other OutDry products, it doesn't have the shiny plastic look to it, and looks like a normal puffy jacket with kind of a rubbery feel to it. Very comfortable and soft like a down sleeping bag, I've napped in it more than a few times... I'm not used to this versatile of a jacket, great product.
