Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tournament Angler Approved Both my partner and I ordered this Suit prior to the 2016 season opener. 20 degrees with 14 degree windchill and we were warm and dry, with a smile on our face. Block the wind,water and chill perfectly with little base layer needed. If your a serious angler who doesnt want mother nature telling you what to do. BUY IT ! YOU WON'T REGRET IT. April 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Jacket I am going into my third year with this jacket and just absolutely love it. It has kept me dry in downpours, with the neoprene cuffs, sealed zippers and excellent quality. I like all the pockets, inside and out. This outfit keeps me warm in the cold PA springs, the Omni heat does work to reflect your own body heat back onto you. I have owned several other rain gear and all have leaked by the third year and this one does not. The only issue i have at times is that if you don't line the sealed zipper up just right, the bottom will come out but is easily correctable. I fish/guide rain or shine and would recommend this jacket and bibs to anyone looking for the best gear on the market. March 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top Quality I purchased this with the bibs last fall and have been really impressed with both. I like to really give something a good test before I write a review. I've had this suit out in all the elements, from driving rain, to subzero cold and it has delivered as advertised. The Omni Heat technology make this setup lightweight and comfortable to wear. That being said, it's not a traditionally insulated jacket. It is phenominal at maintaining your body heat, but if you wear it with just a t-shirt underneath in freezing temperatures, you're going to get a little chilly. March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great winter fishing jacket Great jacket keeps the cold and rain out, very solid, high quality jacket, lots of pockets to put stuff in. The only thing that I wish came with the jacket was the interchange jacket that you can zip into it, also around the wrist have Velcro straps to tighten keep the cold and rain from getting in February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great buy Got this coat for fowl weather. Keeps you comfortable without the excess bulk. Sheds water like a duck. If your looking a dependable coat for the roughest conditions then this is the one. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by First impressions (will write another review after the winter months) I currently live in Boston after moving here form Miami Oct/2014. Needless to say winter is new to me and the last one was especially brutal here in New England with record snowfall. I just received my parka this morning 12/14/2015. I decided to buy it because of the great reviews. I work outside year round in rain, snow, sleet or sunshine. I wore the parka combined with a liner from a bugaboo that I purchased last year on my commute to work today, the temp. is in the mid 40s and raining. It definately kept me very warm and dry. I can't wait to put the parka thru the New England winter. I'll be using it for all kinds of activities (skiing, shoveling, casual walks out in the snow and work). I'll write another review in the spring. I have high expectations for it. Props to Ma Boyle for a great product so far! December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and Dry As a bass fisherman, you never know what to expect from the weather. When the weather gets bad I grab my Columbia Gale Warning Jacket. This jacket has seen everything from rain and snow to sunshine. It has protected me from 10 degree blast offs at 6 am and summer rain storms. Pair with the matching bibs and you will be ready for anything mother nature throws at you. This jacket is very warm, so it might not be the best if you only plan on using it during the summer. November 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has plenty of storage Is water proof as discribed. Comfortable November 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishing guides rain gear Absolutely the best fish rain gear for me. I'm a fishing guide in the Northwest and I need the best product to keep me from the elements. It is lite weight warm and dry. I would recumend this rain gear for any body that works or plays in the outdoors. The craftmenship is quality the minute you zip it up you will know that you are going to be dryer the day. All of the zippers are like they are Welded to each other. September 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Parka I bought this in late spring and have gotten to wear them numerous time during late season cool fronts and through several thunderstorms. I have yet to find a leaky seam or get a chill. I look forward to winter and really putting them through a test. August 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this parka! Upgraded from the regular model after a propape melting accident. My bad luck was good luck! This parka is super warm and well constructed. It has double fold oer material at the zippers, the sleeves and neck have adjustments to tighten down for water and wind proof, and all works perfectly. Zippered pockets a nice bonus, and the construction is 5 star. Plenty of length, when paired with a Bib there is no way wind or rain is getting in. I buy big, so it was a little bulky, which I don't mind in winter steelhead conditions. One thing that was a little annoying was the neck was a bit stiff. That may improve as the jacket gets broken in, but even if it never did I would still happily wear this parka and stay warm and dry all day. Oh yes, OmniHeat works as advertised! March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Cold Weather Fishing Gear We purchased these for my kids who are on their high school fishing team. Tournaments get started in February and running the lake at 60 mph while its 25 degrees can get bone chilling cold. This product keeps you toasty warm, like all of the omni heat products. February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Investment Ever Got this jacket with the bibs about 2 weeks ago and put them straight to work over the weekend fishing a tournament. Weather was in the high 30s to low 40s and it did not stop raining for even a minute. Only wearing a hoodie and jeans under this suit after 9 hours in the cold and rain I can say the only thing left cold was my hands and face. While others were changing into dry clothes from there other brand rain gear soaking through I was still completely dry. Glad I decided to make this investment and I can say it's pretty much already paid for itself after one use. November 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain, rain Go Away! Working on motion picture sets can often be challenging. Filming a football game in Birmingham, Alabama for an upcoming movie. the producers wanted the game played in the rain and it was a bitter cold night. My Columbia Gale Parker was a lifesaver. With just one layer of insulation beneath the jacket, I managed to stay warm and at the same time, dry! Great quality clothing that has real-world usefulness, is why I keep coming back to Columbia. November 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Winter Fishing Jacke This is a great jacket for winter fishing. Very warm and keeps the wind out. Pockets are right size for me to keep extra hand warmers ready. November 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have for off shore. There is no Captain I fish with in the temperate zones that does not have a storm suit. I bought the parka and bibs. It is a nice blue and black. Well constructed and made to fit over other garments. I real enjoy Omni-Heat and appreciate the function. Well constructed and reinforced at critical points. August 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by ROCKFISHING Great Product! Does everything that it is supposed to! February 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent suit Got my first chance to put the jacket and bibs to the test this weekend. Freezing cold with 20-30 mph winds. I was toasty warm and dry. Only had jeans and sweatshirt underneath. This is an outstanding rain suit!!!! January 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by keeps you dry and warm i was looking for a winter rainsuit to mostly keep me warm and keep wind off. this suit does it all. dry, warm, and no wind chill. August 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great functionality This parka is awesome! Light ,true to fit,and warm. The neoprene double cuffs kept the rain and cold out even at 70 m.p.h. runs . The hood took a little fitting but the zip in liner option makes this a keeper! May 28, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Orange Arm Advertising I would love to get this jacket. But there is no way I will have a big neon Columbia sign on my camo gear arm. who puts orange zippers on a camo coat? April 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Parka i've owned so far! I've went through a bunch of different fishing parkas. But i love the fit and feel of tis parka hands down! The Omni heat tech really works. I never got cold or hot in this parka. I recommend these to any angler looking to maintain a perfect body temp,stay dry and look as good as the pros! March 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Skiing coat!!! Found this jacket at Columbia outlet in HHI last Oct. Have been looking for Omni heat jacket for skiing and said this might work, if not it wound be great for hiking rain gear. Well I have skied in it 3 days at temps of 13 to 25 degrees and it has been fantastic! Have only worn a thermal top and light weight Columbia polar Fleece under it for skiing. Clear pocket is great for ski pass. Just bought a Columbia Ten Trail 3 Fleece to zip into the jacket to give me extra warmth when the temps get into the minus #'s and high winds of the Mt. Washington area. December 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Gale Warning run suits rock! The "gale" formerly known as "squall" is the hottest looking run suit on the market for fishermen. The omni-heat tech provides ample warmth in even the coldest conditions. For added warmth just zip in a liner and the suit still does not lose its functionality. Many suits force you to sacrifice maneuverability for warmth, but not this one!! December 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Set up This jacket with the havey liner is awesome. Great shell for rain and with the liner it is WARM! Great pockets and hood. Would recomend to anyone! November 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best Jacket I have ever owned! I'm a full time charter boat captain in the Florida keys. I was looking for a heavy duty jacket that will keep me warm and dry during winter season. Well I found the perfect one! This jacket is and feels amazing, it's lite and really comfortable. I been wearing it every day for my regular 20+ mile run to the fishing grounds. It keeps me warm and dry when it's cold and windy but it also feels very comfortable on the not so cold days. I really recommend this jacket you will be happy. November 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and Warm Great parka. About 1/3 the weight of my old one. The Parka, as I find with most Columbia gear, ran a little small. I wear XL clothing, so I was glad I ordered XXL. Just enough room for a sweatshirt. I wear the Parka and bibs for cold, wet conditions fishing Spring & Fall Salmon on the Columbia River and Winter Harbor, B.C. Thanks for the great Parka. November 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Gale Warning Parka This Parka is the lightest, warmest, and most comfortable I have ever used. When I hunt it keeps me very warm and when I'm fishing or in wet condition it keeps me dry. The pockets are in the right place and zippers keep all of my gear in their place. This parks is built well and I plan on using it for years to come. November 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome jacket By far the warmest and dryest rain jacket I have ever used. I fish approximately 20 tournaments each year and spend a minimum of 100 days a year on the water and this product is amazing! February 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome As Always This jacket is simply amazing! Used this in our tournaments in the fall on St. Clair and Coldwater Michigan. It kept me warm and dry the whole day and was not restricting at all when casting all day! I was surprised how well it kept me warm in the win especially flying at 65+ mph on a boat. Highly recommend to whoever fishes late in the year! January 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stylsih coat I have a lot of rain gear but this coat is the best by far. It fits and feels like a casual coat. I really like the ability to zip fleece or heavier interchange coats into it. i highly recommend this coat. January 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and Dry! I am a full time fishing guide on Dale Hollow Lake in TN. It gets very cold here in the fall and winter, but that doesn't stop us from catching our quary, the smallmouth bass. I purchased this Shell as the final outer layer of my cold weather gear and I was not dissapointed. It is very warm thanks to the Omni Heat Technology and the wind is no match for this Parka. It stops it in its tracks as well as the rain. I have spent countless hours in the rain with this Parka and all layers underneath are dry when I get back to the dock. Very important to me! Thumbs up on this one Columbia! January 1, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Camo is not quiet This is an awesome jacket, but the Camo jacket is not quiet if you plan to use it for hunting. October 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Rain Suit I finally got around to use this product this past weekend and was blown away. Spent all day fishing in the rain with the weather at the start of tournament time around 33 degrees wearing a pair of jeans a t shirt and a sweatshirt and I didn't even need the sweatshirt. No thermals, no base layer and I was warm as can be while everybody else is wearing 5 layers and still cold. If you fish a lot of cold weather this is a necessity for you! October 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the deal!!! When Columbia says bring it they are not kidding. I have the matching bibs to go with this. The Jacket packs a punch let me tell you. I have owned several parkas but this is a step ahead of the rest because of its lightweight and breathability. The length is just right to so it protects you from the harshest weather conditions. I am 5'9 and 175lbs and the Med gets the job done. Another Happy custotmer here February 14, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome I am a pro tournament fisherman, and rely heavily on my rain suits to keep me dry and warm. I have owned many on the market, but the Squall is so lightweight without sacrificing warmth with the added omni heat liner. Stay dry and warm with less weight. And if you run cold like I do, zipping in an added layer like a down vest makes it perfect for winter days. January 25, 2011
