Rated 5 out of 5 by Replacement jacket Previously purchased a Pacific Trail waterproof, breathable rain jacket for use at work and while skiing. Served me well for many (?) yrs. Last year while skiing in the rain it "gave up the ghost" and I was wet to the bone. Bought Columbia's Watertight II as a replacement. Used it last week in an all-day rain. Beads of moisture on the surface but nothing but dry inside. Now can only hope to get as many years of performance from this jacket as I got from the last one. October 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great rain jacket Looks sharp, true to size, and keeps you dry. A good value at this price. My only suggestion is that they add an inside pocket. October 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Jacket Nice light weight and I had to put it to use the day after I got it; kept me dry in the rain. Received complements from my co workers. October 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Just in time for rainy season! This jacket has a distinctive great quality, very practical for hurricane season in South Florida. It provides the adequate protection for rain and sun. The waterproof technology is fantastic and does the job!! I can wear it when it is raining or when it is sunny outside, thanks to the Omni-Tech breathable technology. Overall, great product. Looking forward to get my hands in a Titanium!! October 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great seam sealed jacket This jacket does a amazing job at keeping water off the body. Ive never had any leakage and the hood does a great job of draining the water off out in front of you. Also does a great job at keeping wind off of you. My only complaint is with a seam sealed jacket like this if it is warm outside but raining you will get hot if doing any physical activity October 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally a waterproof jacket that feels warm and dry All the waterproof jackets I've had until now had no liner so with my skin against the rubbery interior I always felt both wet (even though I wasn't) and cold. Not with this jacket October 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fit, waterproof This has to be my first ever rain jacket. As expected it is lightweight, gives good wind protection and is roomy enough to wear over a fleece. I tried it on top of my lightweight medium Columbia fleece. I am 5'9" 165lbs, average build. I wish they included a strap to roll up the hoodie out of the way. I have not work it in a heavy downpour yet. The hoodie does close around your face well. Being packable makes it portable. I would definitely recommend it to users especially at the 60$ price point I got mine at. It should work well during hiking in rain, but do not expect it to keep you warm. October 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacket I was on a lake fishing last weekend and the wind and rain came up. I had others complaining how cold the wind was ... OTHERS! Not I was warmed and Cozy and the super lightweight Jacket was the perfect outfit for that day. Thank you. September 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket for the weather I have worn this jacket for over 10 years anytime the weather is between 60 degrees and 10 degrees. When it's cold I add a sweater under it. I ride my bike to and from work, so I own the orange jacket to be visible. I ride in rain, snow and wind, and the jacket is truly waterproof. It is comfortable, easy to layer with, and does its job well, and for a very reasonable price. My college age kids wouldn't recognize me in any other jacket! September 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket!! Received my order in a very timely manner. Jacket itself is lightweight and breaths well. Truly holds water out well and even beads up in the outside and just falls off. September 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men's Watertight™ II Jacket I purchased this raincoat for my son a few months ago. He absolutely loves it. Very nice quality jacket. True to the size and color. August 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy and Well Built for the Price I purchased a a jacket in the Rocket color. I have used it as a shell layer for wind and rain cover on many hikes and tours. PROS: - Waterproof Material: When it pours, water does not slowly seep through the material. It is truly waterproof. - Light Weight: Easy to pack, can tuck it all into its own pocket or hood, light build. - Sturdy: I have purchased raincoats in the past that have had their linings dry out and break up after a year. This jacket does not do that. Very sturdy build. - Good Hood: The hood design with the small brim is very effective. In very hard rain you have to keep your head down to keep everything out, but in general it is great. CONS: - Zipper Flap: This jacket features a Velcro zipper flap and normal zipper, as opposed to a waterproof zipper. I only had it leak in very serious rain storms, when I wasn't being careful enough about keeping it sealed. I have never had a problem with it in light or normal rain though. - Can Be Hot: As a function of being a water tight jacket, it does not breath well. I would say it does as well as it can at being light weight and not too hot on a rainy summers day, but I tend to find myself sweating when I have my heart rate up and I am wearing it. COMMENTS: As a head up I am very careful washing my jackets, and that may be why mine has lasted a long time. For the price and the color selection, this Jacket is great. August 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by It works I got this jacket when I moved to Portland just to throw in the bottom of my everyday pack for those PNW rain showers. It works great. Keeps me dry. Doesn't stick to your back, fairly breathable. I wish it packed down a little tighter, but it stuffs into its own pocket just fine. It's a little warm for the summer months. But great for chilly spring rain. Draw strings on the waist and hood + zipper pockets make this jacket great when bicycling. July 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product I am working as a mauntain guide in New Mexico, and during an exceptionally bad hail storm I was made aware of the fact that my previous rain gear (which was not Columbia) was not actually water proof, so I saw this and bought it. I have been using it frequently over the past week and it has been effective and comfortable in everything from light rain to hail storms. I am very happy with this product. July 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain Gear Essential Excellent weight for rain protection. Quality product for the price. Highly recommend June 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by True to size. Great jacket, I like the fit and I love the comfort. Keeps me dry without the stifling heat. Only thing I would change would be the velcro. When walking or moving arms, velcro near wrists can snag on velcro near main zipper. Minorly bothersome. June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely a great product I work outside and jacket is exactly what I was looking for, not only does it fit great but repels water even on a heavy down pour. I would definitely recommend this jacket. June 5, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Verry well That Jacket it s verry confortable June 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by MEN'S WATERTIGHT™ II JACKET I love them and they look. I feel Very Sporty and comfortable. Wearing it to Europe next week. Let you know more when I test it in the rain. June 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by rain jacket I am very happy with the quality and function so far. I have yet to use the jacket in a heavy or constant rain. I am curious how a medium size jacket would have fit, I my be 'between sizes'. May 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Size If you are a xl order a xxl in the jacket. I went and try one on first before I ordered it. But the jacket is amazing!! I used it last for golf it was raining and the temp was 49. All I had on was a t shirt underneath and was warm and dry!! This jacket is better than the North Face one my wife has! May 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Rain Jacket could be Great Jacket Overall I like this rain jacket. It has a good and functional design. There are two things I would like this jacket be altered a bit. First, the drawstring to adjust the waist hem should have two, one on each side. Your design of only one drawstring allows for and creates a bulge when you pull it in to fit your waist/hips correctly. Second, the front hood bill should be a little more prounced and sturdier to allow it to function more like a ball cap bill. Remington brand has such a design. Again, overall I like this rain jacket. May 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reasonable warranty replacement I returned an older PVC rain jacket which could not be repaired, and I was issued a credit toward this jacket. I'm very happy with it's performance (we've had a LOT of rain!), but I wish it had button snap instead of velcro. May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Light Jacket I really like the look of the bright color of this jacket. It has great feel and blocks wind and rain well. highly recommended1 April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain...what's that?? Worked 3 out of 5 days in the rain at the NY Botanical Garden. Torrential downpours while transplanting trees. I never got wet. You might feel it's a bit thin for the temp, just layer up underneath which might make it snug. But the layering was not totally necessary. A big difference. Amazing!! April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Very lightweight. Fits over work clothes, and keeps my husband totally dry while working outside. April 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice jacket! Beautiful jacket, Love the color, very lightweight and I like the length of the sleeves. I would recommend this jacket. Just wish the main front zipper was a little more heavy duty like my other Columbia rain jacket. April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Lightweight and surprisingly warm. Medium is a great fit for me - I'm 6' 1" and 155 lbs. April 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by SierrasHiker It was a pleasant coincidence that my Watertight II jacket arrived a couple of weeks ago on a day it was raining. I tried it on right away and liked the fit. Then, I "road tested" it, going for a 2-mile walk in a light rain with about a 20 MPH wind. The jacket was indeed watertight and felt quite comfortable. It is a nice lightweight jacket, I plan to take along for day hikes in the Sierras, as well use as a windbreaker for cooler evenings when handling BBQ duties. Great jacket! March 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light weight rain wear This light weight jacket kept me dry in heavy rain. I am very happy with it. March 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Actually rain proof This is 3rd rain jacket I've tried. The other 2 from 2 different vendors didn't actually keep the rain out. This one does... Thank you, Columbia. March 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by My husband Love's it. It's light weight for the nice days and roomy enough to add a light sweather when needed. Love the hood March 16, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Warm at all I bought this because of the reviews. After receiving the jacket, I do not know why all the reviews say it is warm. IT is NOT warm at all, and feels very cheap, and VERY Thin. I did not expect it to be a heavy jacket, but it is thinner than a windbreaker, and the pictures on the site do not represent this product at all. It looks like there is padding around the neck, and there is not, not even close. Thinking of returning. February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Water tight II / yes The jacket cut and style great!!! Good as windbreak and great in the rain! Thank you Columbia! February 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Get One! This was what I was wanting, I use this with a hoodie in the early winter and early spring. I stay warm and dry. Layers are important to me. February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent in Snow Storm I never do reviews but I have to. Recieved jacket on day of NYC record snow fall. So I thought perfect time to test watertight 2. I not good at words but this jacket is outstanding. It kepted me warm and dry as I shoveled 20 inches of snow out of my driveway. Now of course my wife wants one too and I'm more than happy to get for her. You won't be disappointed in purchase. January 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Rain Jacket! I got this for my boyfriend. We live in Oregon so he needed something like this. This does the trick! Waterproof and breathable! He loves it. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by First try was great I just received this jacket for Christmas so I haven't put it through the rigor of the demands that I usually put products through but it was pouring rain outside today so I put it on and went out to test it. Water beaded up and ran off just like it should. Was bone dry everywhere that the jacket was covering so it's working great so far. There are only two things that I can say. 1. The velcro that secures the cuff on the sleeve is very skinny and I believe that I might would want it a little wider. Haven't really had it long enough to decide though. 2. I have pretty long arms for my body size so if you are like me, you may want to get a tall size for less restricted arm movement. January 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for I commute every day on the train and I need a light weight waterproof jacket that offers protection from the wind and rain. I wanted something that was waterproof and broke the wind, and light enough to put in my backpack when I don't need it. This jacket allows me all of these things and it is a great jacket. Great quality and great value for the money. January 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great option for year round bicycling I got this jacket to wear while biking in wet weather but it actually turned into my year round cycling jacket. It fits well, cuts the wind, and is pretty waterproof. The only complaint I have is the lack of an internal pocket (that's a personal preference I can never have too many pockets). I'll probably get another one in a different color. December 29, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Outdoor Jacket I bought this jacket for my husband. The jacket does its job, especially up here in WA state. December 1, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not worth of Price It is too delicate, Price is too high for the quality. DS December 1, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed For the first time ever, I'm disappointed with a Columbia Sportswear product. The shell repels only the first onslaught of water. After that, moisture soaks through to the lining. (I've never "washed" or otherwise mistreated the jacket, so it can't be something I've done to it.) Then, the jacket turns into a greenhouse and clings to whatever's underneath: clothing, skin, etc. The lining is so large and loose in the sleeves that it exits the shell at the wrists every time I put the jacket on, an annoying inconvenience. I have to reach down each sleeve from the shoulder to pull the lining back in every time I put it on. The hood is the best part. It's roomy and works the way I like, but I detest the Velcro closures in front. They're forever catching when I want them to be open; I anticipate one day they will fray and not close at all. The plastic zipper beneath the Velcro closures, while lightweight, seems cheap. I fully expect it to eventually snag or othewise jam and wear out. I regret this purchase. November 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It works I am 5'10" @ 180lbs and the large fits me well. I can agree with some of the comments mentioned in other posts. I got to try the jacket in Geneva Switzerland during a 2hr walk in constant rain. The waterproof aspects of the jacket worked extremely well. I can agree that the water just pearled off me as on a tree leaf. The finish of the the seams is done very well. The hood worn in conjunction with a baseball cap seals around the head extremely well and keeps all water out. I would also agree with the zippers and linings. Yes, I noticed the sleeve lining to come out of the sleeve and had to readjust. Worse was the main and pocket zippers. They jammed because the lining catches easily in the zipper mechanism. Sealed zippers would make this a super jacket. Finally, it took me some time to find the hidden pocket into which to stuff the jacket as a small pouch, the "packable" function. It is actually the left pocket. Once packed the the netting of the pocket becomes the outer bag. That is not really functional because once reversed this netting catches on everything. Why not make the "packable" pocket in a solid material? November 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT rain jacket I got this for a trip to Iceland. I had to wear it today and it was POURING - it worked GREAT! not a leak or single problem. I got this to layer so I bought it larger than needed so I put that it's true to size. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain Coat Very nice light weight coat November 14, 2015
