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 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.
